A Few Facts About Fluoride

Science and health communities around the globe agree that fluoride can sometimes help prevent cavities. However, what they don’t agree on is the effectiveness and whether the risks outweigh the benefits.

 

  • The World Health Organization, WHO, notes that there is no difference in tooth decay between countries who add fluoride to their water and ones who don’t.
  • Some studies involving both humans and animals have shown a link to fluoride and brain damage. The most talked about is one that suggests fluoride has caused lower IQs in children. Some believe this occurs when fluoridated tap water is used to make formula during a child’s infancy.
  • The National Center for Health Statistics reported that 40% of teens in America shows symptoms of fluorosis. Dental fluorosis is caused by long-term exposure to fluoride during the teeth’s formative years.

Is it Possible to Skip a Root Canal?

The term "root canal" strikes fear in us all. Some aren’t exactly certain what it is but do know that it hurts and that it’s not a good thing. A root canal removes the main nerve inside of the tooth in order to stop further damage from decay. In the past, dentists were quick to do root canals anytime there seemed even the slightest need. Now, dentists with a biomimetic and biological focus such as Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Carini, are changing the game and doing all they can to provide effective, healing treatments that don’t involve root canals.

Their purposes ranged from medicinal to religious and cave paintings discovered in France trace their origins as far back as possibly 18,000 BC.
