Smile Savers

According to an article in the March 2010 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, brushing, flossing, and eating right keep your teeth strong and promote overall health.  Below are 4 tips from that article:

1. Make it tea for your teeth: Fruit drinks, sodas, and citrus juices (like orange) have sugar and acids that wear away tooth enamel.  The better dental choice , as safe as just plain water, is tea without milk, lemon, or sugar.
2. Listen to your hygienist: In a two-week study of identical twins, one brushed and flossed, the other simply brushed.  The flosser developed significantly less plaque causing bacteria than their brush-only siblings.
3. Spoon up some culture: In a new study, people who consumed at least 1/4 cup of yogurt or a lactic acid drink every day were less than half as likely to have serious gum disease.  The magic ingredient? Probiotics, researchers believe.
4. Get plenty of fruits and vegetables: The higher your consumption of folic acid from food (produce is a great source), the lower you risk of bleeding gums, research shows.

Some dentists may also focus on providing care for an entire community. Dentists specializing in public health can work in government agencies and universities to provide the public with general information on dental health.
