How Do I Floss Thee? Let Me Count the Ways
We all know we're supposed to floss but perhaps choosing the right product will coax you into becoming a practitioner.

There's waxed and unwaxed, flavored and unflavored, regular and tape type. There's floss made of Teflon, special holders and intra-dental devices for people with limited dexterity. And you know floss has hit the big time when Salon Magazine has an article about floss rings!

G-Floss is nonabrasive gauze designed to curve around implants. For bridgework, there's super floss, a three-in-one including a stiffened end to insert between the fixed part and the bridging section and a woven part to work over and under the bridge.

If you need a primer on proper flossing technique, call & ask for Jocelyn or check out www.floss.com which provides visuals and instruction.

Diet For A Small Jaw
A study of over 300 skulls from several different populations suggests that the human jaw has shortened and widened as a result of a shift from hunting and gathering to a pastoral way of life. Jaw development may have adapted as diet shifted to foods that required less force and less chewing.

A British anthropologist posits that our shorter jaw could be the cause of overcrowded teeth, commonly found in modern humans.

Oral Piercings Can Lead to Dental Damage and Oral Infections
While an oral piercing is a unique way to show off who you are individually, they are not as safe as you may think. There are tons of problems with them, and the problems range from little more than an annoyance, to a major issue that could affect your overall health. Nearly everyone that gets an oral piercing gets some type of a problem that can be directly traced back to the piercing. We see a lot of chipped teeth, cracked teeth, and a huge increase in gum disease among those with oral piercings. If you want to show off who you are, you may want to consider a different option than an oral piercing.
