Why Do We Hate Flossing So Much?

When it comes to oral hygiene routines, the focus is usually so strongly placed on proper tooth brushing techniques, that flossing can be easily overlooked or forgotten about completely. It’s sort of the elephant in the room sometimes because everyone knows it’s important but no one wants to deal with it.

In fact, a 2015 survey from the American Academy of Periodontology found that around 27% of Americans lie to their dentist about how often they floss. The same survey found that 14% of the responders would rather clean a toilet than floss their teeth. So, why all the hate for flossing and why is it such a big deal anyways?

This Virus' Impact on Oral Cancers is Alarming

April was Oral Cancer Awareness Month. In the past, smoking and tobacco use were the most concerning risk factor associated with this disease, but the growing number of those diagnosed with HPV, or human papillomavirus, has changed the focus. The CDC says that 80% of Americans will be infected with HPV during their life and that most cases will clear up unnoticed. But, for those that don’t, the results can be serious. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) and is the leading cause of oropharyngeal cancer. It affects both men and women.

Close to 50,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year in the United States. Smoking, any tobacco use, alcohol consumption, HPV, sun exposure and a weakened immune system are just some of the risk factors related to oral cancers.

Americans Are Now Drinking More Bottled Water Than Soda

Beverage Marketing Corporation, a leading source of beverage data and consulting, says that last year bottled-water consumption in the United States reached 39.3 gallons per capita. It seems public education about the health concerns associated with sugary drinks like soda may finally be paying off.

Soda sales still beat water sales according to Euromonitor, at $39.5 billion and $21.3 billion respectively. Interestingly enough, 26 percent of the bottled water revenue went to Coca-Cola and Pepsi last year for their brands Dasani and Aquafina.

National Oral Cancer Awareness Month

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. The Oral Cancer Foundation says that each day 132 Americans will be diagnosed with a form of mouth cancer. Each year, approximately 49,750 people will be diagnosed. In the past, tobacco and alcohol consumption were the most concerning cause, but in recent years the alarming number of Human papillomavirus cases is leading to a skyrocketing number of oral cancer patients.

HPV is one of the most common viruses in America says Dr. Bryan Schwartz of Whole Health Biomimetic and Biological Family Dentistry in Pewaukee, Wisconsin.

Ozone Dentistry

When you hear the words ozone therapy you probably picture some kind of complicated environmental method for keeping our earth happy and healthy. Well, you’re half-way there. Dr. Schwartz uses modern natural science to keep your mouth happy and healthy, but it’s not as complicated as it sounds.

Simplified Break-Down

What is ozone? It’s a natural gas with three oxygen atoms that is present in two layers of the atmosphere. It exists in the atmosphere to filter out all the bad, harmful stuff. So, it just makes sense that this particle has tremendous health benefits within our body as well as for the environment that surrounds us. Since it has a negative charge, it seeks to neutralize anything with a positive charge. Many of the bad things in our body, ironically, have positive charges such as viruses and bacteria making this an ideal non-invasive way to help your body fight infection.
