Is Pool Time Ruining Your Teeth?

Swimming is one of the best calorie-burning activities there is. Not only is it a great workout, but it can also be incredibly refreshing and even relaxing on a hot summer day. For some, a love of swimming develops early in life and carries over into adulthood. And while most swimmers are aware of the effects of chlorinated water on their hair and skin, very few realize the damage the chemically treated water can do to their teeth. Pools that are not maintained with balanced pH levels can cause problems for those who swim on a regular basis.

Why Orange Juice and Toothpaste Don't Mix

Have you ever made the mistake of taking a giant swig of orange juice with your breakfast just after brushing your teeth? If you have, you likely remember how terrible it tasted. You’ll be happy to know you aren’t the only one who has experienced this. It’s so common, in fact, that researchers decided to look into why exactly this occurs.

One ingredient in toothpaste, sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS, is likely the culprit, according to scientists. SLS is a surfactant and is added to toothpaste as a sudsing agent. It’s the reason your toothpaste gets frothy in your mouth and makes it easy to spread around across and in between your teeth. Surfactants like this are often added to soaps, shampoos and detergents as well. Consumer research shows that people like seeing foaming bubbles when they use products meant for cleaning -- it makes us feel like the product is doing its job!

Back-to-School Smiles: Teeth Tips for Kids

It’s that time of year again. As summer draws to a close, it's time to think about all things related to back to school: school supplies, outfits, carpool, sports.

In fact, oral health plays a huge role when it comes to school. Studies show that 31 percent of parents in the United States report their children have missed school due to dental problems. On average, elementary school students miss six days of school a year for dental-related issues, according to research from the University of Southern California.

New Regulations From the EPA Attempt to Reduce Dental Mercury Waste

Commonly referred to as the "Dental Rule", the "Effluent Limitations Guideline and Standards for Dental Category" is the official name of the updated federal regulations that will affect the dental industry. This ruling was issued in December of 2016 by the Environmental Protection Agency. It was rescinded via an executive order by President Trump in his first day in office, just over a month later, with all other rulings that had been finalized by President Obama but not published in the Federal Register.

As of June 14, 2017, the ruling was back in action and published in the Federal Register. Greenwire reports it was reinstated because the National Resources Defense Council filed a law suit against the EPA because they did not give adequate notice or allow a public comment period before rescinding it; making the withdraw of the ruling illegal.  Dental offices around the nation will be required to comply with the new guidelines by July 14, 2020.
