The dentists at Wahl Family Dentistry are unanimous: we do not recommend smoking Viceroys or any other cigarettes. Shockingly, the dentist in this advertisement, however, recommends Viceroys to his patients. If you or someone you know is a patient of this dentist, please consider switching to Wahl Family Dentistry!

After noticing that many children in Bangalore, India wouldn’t smile because of their dental problems, Morgan Snyder, and a few fellow students from the University of Pennsylvania developed Sweet Bites, a low-cost, xylitol-based chewing gum and brought it to Bangalore to help fight tooth decay in children there. Chewing sugarless gum has long been thought to help decrease the incidence of tooth decay, probably because it stimulates salivary flow. You can read about this initiative here.

A new study in the Journal of Dental Research shows that the risk for pneumonia doubles in elderly patients who don’t take their dentures out overnight, possibly due to the growth of microorganisms. This study confirms the importance of good oral health and hygiene in elderly patients.
The take-home message? Don’t sleep with dentures in your mouth. Take them out so your gum tissues can “breathe,” and clean your dentures thoroughly at least once a day with a soft denture brush. While out of your mouth, the dentures should be soaked in a denture cleansing solution.
Good oral health and hygiene is important at any age. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once. Have your teeth and mouth professionally cleaned and examined at least twice a year.
