  • The Potato Remedy for Tooth Abscess

    Home remedies and treatments for abscessed teeth are abundant in online forums and groups. A number of things, from oils to mouth rinses and scrubs, have been suggested. One of the suggestions that seems to be somewhat effective for relief from pain and swelling is potato. What exactly does this home remedy recommend? How does potato work? Does it cure the abscess or just relieve the pain? These are the questions I went in search of when I read of this home remedy.


  • Why the Ultimate Mouthwash Won’t Really Cure Tooth Decay

    Researchers have concluded years of testing and are nearing the time when they will release a new mouthwash that has been coined the “ultimate mouthwash.” The mouthwash has been formulated to target the bacteria Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans). A new study, published in Caries Research, found that the mouthwash was effective at killing Streptococcus mutans in the mouth. These findings have led researchers to believe that this new mouthwash may completely “wipe out tooth decay during our lifetime.”


  • Can apples cause tooth decay?

    Researchers concluded that, “ … participants who reported eating apples were 3.7 times more likely to have damage to the dentine layer of tooth below the enamel while participants who consume carbonated drinks such as colas had no additional risk of tooth decay.”  The authors of the study conclude that the reason for the increase of tooth decay is the high acidity levels of the apples, which eroded the dental enamel and caused decay.


  • Why Are Native American Children Suffering From Tooth Decay?

    A startling report was released earlier this year that showed Native American children in the U.S. and Canada have a higher rate of tooth decay than other children. The researchers compiled data from 2,633 Native American children that were between the ages of two and five. The findings showed that 68 percent of children had cavities, and in some areas, the rate of tooth decay in children was as high as 90 percent. While statements released by physician’s claim this high rate of tooth decay is caused by a lack of proper hygiene and not receiving routine dental care, this is far from the truth.


  • How Did the Ancient Greeks Clean Their Teeth?

    Before the toothbrush was invented, many cultures invented their own ways to clean the teeth. Ancient Greeks and Romans were said to use toothpicks to pick particles of food out of their teeth. Without the use of commercial toothpastes and toothbrushes, the people during this time still managed to maintain optimal dental health. How is this possible? The truth is, the amount of tooth decay a person experiences has little to do with dental hygiene and everything to do with the type of diet you consume.


  • Why Did the Ancient Egyptians Suffer From Poor Dental Health?

    A study published in the Journal of Comparative Human Biology has shed light on the dental health of ancient Egyptians. A total of 3,000 mummies were studied, and the results have led to interesting findings.  The findings showed that,  " Worn teeth, periodontal diseases, abscesses and cavities tormented the ancient Egyptians ... " The teeth in 18 percent of the mummies showed signs of a vast array of dental health disorders. Many of the mummies also showed signs of bone disorders and fractures. What this study fails to tell us is why this occurred.


  • Japanese Scientists Show Tooth Loss Leads to Poor Diet Habits

    A study conducted in Japan, published in the February 2010 issue of Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology, has shown that even dentists are susceptible to poor nutrition and tooth loss. The study aimed to find a correlation between the tooth loss and dietary intake of 20,366 dentists. Research was gathered from the years 2001 to 2006. The results were calculated based on the answers to a questionnaire that collected data on the intakes of foods and nutrients. Conclusions were adjusted to account for the number of teeth, history of diabetes, age, sex, smoking, and physical activity.
