Maintaining healthy dentition often seems like it can cost a fortune, but here are some ways to avoid expensive treatments and repair by diligently brushing your teeth and flossing daily, and utilizing appropriate natural remedies for dental and gum ailments. 

Gingivitis is a silent disease of the gums that can go unnoticed until bleeding accompanies brushing or flossing. Eating and dental hygiene become unpleasant because of the gum disease. Common symptoms include irritation, redness, swelling and easy bleeding of the gums. Other symptoms include bad breath, loose teeth, and receding gums that expose the roots of the teeth. The most common cause of gingivitis is plaque formation.

Many times when we talk about dental health, we talk about how important calcium is, especially because it is also the main material for bones and teeth. Here are some ways to make sure you can obtain enough calcium and prevent calcium loss.

Calcium is vital for the body because of its vital role in many cellular processes such as muscle movement, blood clotting, and nerve stimulation. Many times when we talk about dental health, we talk about how important calcium is, especially because it is also the main material for bones and teeth. Calcium is so important that there is a signal pathway that alerts the body when calcium levels are low. Since your body cannot make its own calcium, it has to obtain enough from dietary intake or deplete the bones to help maintain normal levels.

Sometimes we spend so much time wondering what we're supposed to do, what we should be working towards, and how to do something truly meaningful, that we end up getting nothing done.

This summer, I had the opportunity to spend some time with my grandfather and his wife on their farm in the mountains of central Dominican Republic. The beautiful lush greenery and dirt roads are a stark contrast to the dense buildings and asphalt roads of my hometown in Massachusetts, USA. I wish I could say that I’m a country girl at heart, but I've got to tell you how glad I was when I finally hooked my phone up to wifi when I got back to the city.

Do you suffer from dental cavities or dry mouth? Here are some ways to prevent and get rid of these dental woes.

Dental cavities, also known as dental decay, occur in the presence of germs called “bacteria” living on the surface of the tooth. They degrade food particles and sugar into an acidic solution that softens the tooth enamel. The bacteria produce a barrier called “plaque” which protects them from our immune system’s recognition.

 

The World Health Organization estimates there are 2.4 billion people worldwide that have cavities and 620 million babies who suffer from them as well.
