Dental expert Michael Roizen has advised people to floss on a daily basis to ensure gums remain strong and healthy in a bid to reduce the risk of disease, My San Antonio reports.

Gum disease, which is caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth, can be responsible for a number of serious health issues.

The removal of the substance through regular brushing and flossing could significantly reduce the risk of developing lung problems.

Scientists claim that people who suffer from diabetes, smokers and pregnant women are at increased risk of developing illness.

Teens Health urges young people to be aware of the symptoms of gum disease in order to track it down as early as possible.

Adopting more regular brushing and flossing habits could reverse the problem if tell tale signs are acknowledged in the early stages.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800534336-ADNFCR

Expert highlights importance of flossing


Expert highlights importance of flossingLifestyle writer Erin Hill has highlighted the importance of flossing regularly to avoid emergency dentistry treatments.

Writing on Plum-Oakmont Patch, Ms Hill stressed that flossing is not as time consuming as most people believe it is and only takes about a minute a day.

"Before, I couldn't take a minute to floss each day, which resulted in having to have three different hour-long appointments to fill my cavities," she wrote.

Many people also believe flossing is an extra financial expense that they can do without, but it there are many cheap flossing products that can be found at popular grocery stores, Ms Hill said.

She also debunked the common misconception that brushing the teeth is a substitute for flossing.

"Brushing doesn't get everything," Ms Hill insisted. "Bacteria that can cause tooth decay still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach."

Nutrition scientist offers tips on emergency dentistry prevention


Brush, floss and eat plenty of nutrients if you want to avoid emergency dentistry.  A nutrition scientist has offered some top tips to people who want to avoid emergency dentistry and keep all their teeth.

Dr Ed Blonz from the University of California told the Mercury News that the essential ingredients for strong teeth are calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, vitamin D and a little fluoride.

However, he also warned that it is vital to take good care of them from the outside too, brushing away sugar that can cause bacteria to breed and flossing.

When asked how essential flossing is, Dr Blonz joked that people should only floss the teeth they want to keep.

Brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing once every 24 hours is the recommended advice from dentists.

Last month, Dr Ogo Eze told the Guardian that people should be careful they are not too vigorous with their toothbrush, as this can actually cause the gums to recede.

Spring ‘is a good time to start emergency dentistry prevention’


Make emergency dentistry prevention a new resolution for spring.Anyone who does not already follow a diligent emergency dentistry prevention regime could find that spring is the perfect time to start.

This is according to mouthwash manufacturer Eludril and Elgydium, which told that people should spring clean their oral hygiene in the same way they would their houses after the winter months.

To begin with, the firm's experts recommended always brushing for two minutes twice a day, even if you are feeling tired. They suggested getting ready for bed early if you are in for the whole evening, as this will leave you more time for brushing.

Flossing was also recommended, as was buying a new toothbrush.

Finally, Eludril and Elgydium said it is vital to pick up the phone and make a dental appointment if you haven't had a check-up in ages.

Last month, Dr Ogo Eze told the Guardian that it is important to brush regularly but not too vigorously, as this can scrub away the gums.

‘Only proper brushing and flossing’ will prevent emergency dentistry


Only brushing and flossing will prevent emergency dentistry.People who want to avoid emergency dentistry have been told that proper brushing and flossing is the only way to do so.

Writing in the Redlands Daily Facts in response to a reader query about the necessity of flossing, Mimi Barre said it is vital for all the teeth a person intends to keep.

She pointed out that otherwise, plaque and tartar can lead to gum disease, tooth loss and even more serious problems such as heart attacks.

"Only proper brushing and flossing can get rid of that goop," Ms Barre commented.

For those who struggle with traditional floss, she recommended trying the sort that comes on a small plastic holder, but added that different people will prefer other types like flat ribbon floss.

"Slide down the side of each tooth, under the gum line to loosen debris," the expert instructed.

This comes after Amanda Geffner of the Daily Weston said last month that she has been converted to floss after trying it and being amazed by the results.

Writer recommends flossing as part of an emergency dentistry prevention regime


Flossing really works as a method of emergency dentistry prevention, one writer has found.A writer has recommended flossing to people who want to succeed in an emergency dentistry prevention regime.

In an article for the Daily Weston, Amanda Geffner said she started flossing religiously after getting fed up of being told she had plaque or even cavities by her dentist.

She revealed that this has now paid off after being told by her hygienist that she has "excellent" homecare and did not need any treatment during her last visit.

After revelling in her "warm sense of wellbeing and accomplishment", Ms Geffner said she now intends to stick to flossing because she knows it works.

"I had my flaw-free teeth to show for it and Lord knows, the bicuspid never lies," she added.

Reader's Digest recently explained that flossing can not only get rid of food particles that toothbrushes cannot shift, but it can protect against heart disease, strokes and other serious problems by removing bacteria from the mouth.

Elderly people ‘may need help with emergency dentistry prevention’


Older people could need help if they are to avoid emergency dentistry.People who have elderly relatives have been encouraged to help them when it comes to emergency dentistry prevention.

Writing for the Windsor Star, Dr David Mady said "it is imperative that the elderly receive good oral healthcare on a regular basis", or they may develop problems such as decay.

Writing in response to a query from a reader whose mother is suffering from dementia, the expert recommended helping her to brush and floss her teeth.

He said it is best to use a soft-bristled brush and non-flouride toothpaste similar to that available for children if she tends to swallow it.

Dr Mady also stressed the importance of flossing, explaining that bleeding gums and possible infection could be the result if this is not done regularly.

He said automatic flossing tools are available for people who may be having problems with traditional floss.

Earlier this month, a study carried out in Japan and published in the journal Behavioral and Brain Functions found that elderly people who have to have dental implants because all of their teeth have fallen out may also be more susceptible to dementia.

Good habits for life ‘could prevent emergency dentistry’


An expert has explained the importance of adopting good habits at an early age when it comes to dental care.People who care for their teeth on a daily basis are less likely to require emergency dentistry in later life, experts have claimed.

Martha Cortes, a dentist who practises in the US, told Everyday Health that picking up the right dental habits during childhood and adolescence will help people to avoid serious problems as they get older.

She explained that teenagers who "develop good brushing and flossing habits" are unlikely to resort to emergency dentistry, as they will continue to look after their teeth throughout their life.

Ms Cortes pointed out that a good dental hygiene regime also has other health benefits.

"People with healthy teeth will actually reduce their risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and have lower blood pressure," she commented.

According to guidelines from Colgate, daily flossing is highly recommended to remove plaque in places that a toothbrush cannot reach.

For the best results, the company advises people to use about 18 inches of floss, wind most of it around both middle fingers and hold it tautly between the thumbs and index fingers.


Last-chance syndrome ‘could result in emergency dentistry’


Could all those trifles and yule logs cause a need for emergency dentistry? Falling victim to last-chance syndrome could leave you vulnerable to needing emergency dentistry soon, festive revellers have been warned.

Writing for, dentists Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz said this is the temptation to have a blowout on sweet snacks before the diet kicks in come new year.

However, they pointed out that the combination of sugar and starch in many foods at this time of year can be especially damaging to teeth.

"It creates a kind of superplaque that is up to five times harder, stickier and more acidic than the gunk (are we getting too technical here?) made without much starch," the experts explained.

To beat last-chance syndrome, Dr Roizen and Dr Oz suggested avoiding fizzy drinks in favour of cranberry juice which helps to neutralise acid in the mouth.

They also recommended always brushing and flossing before bedtime to cut the chances of decay.

Last month, scientists at the University of Rochester also recommended cranberries as ideal plaque-fighters thanks to the bacteria-fighting substances they contain.


Brushing thoroughly ‘will help to prevent emergency dentistry’


Brush properly and floss if you want to avoid emergency dentistry. Making sure brushing is carried out properly will help to prevent emergency dentistry in the long run.

This is according to Nancyann Rella, writing for NewsDay, who said it is never too early to begin a proper oral healthcare regime, as gum disease can spring up in those aged as young as six.

She cited advice from the Mayo Clinic to explain how to brush properly and effectively.

"Brush as if your teeth depended on it," the article stated, recommending a soft toothbrush that will not damage the gums.

Using short backwards and forwards strokes followed by up and down movements will ensure all surfaces of the teeth are cleaned.

Flossing was also recommended to go with a regular brushing regime in order to keep teeth in tip-top condition.

Reader's Digest recently said that flossing is essential, as not only can it protect the teeth from plaque but it could get rid of the bacteria that cause chronic, body-wide inflammation.
