Your Dentist Is Your First Line of Defense Against Oral Cancer

Your Dentist Is Your First Line of Defense Against Oral Cancer By Jonathan B. Levine, DMD From Dr Oz’s website – http://www.doctoroz.com/blog/jonathan-b-levine-dmd/your-dentist-your-first-line-defense-against-oral-cancer
Oral cancer can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated early: 37,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer in 2011 alone and it will cause over 8,000 deaths by the end of the year.

Here are the signs and symptoms of oral cancer:

A lump in the throat
Thickening or lump(s) in the lining of the mouth
Tongue numbness
Red or white lesions in the mouth
Dark blue or black spots on the tongue
Follow these easy at-home self-examination tips to help yourself stay on top of your health. Give yourself a little “Ah” in front of the mirror and check out your tongue (top and bottom), your gum areas, the back of your mouth, and the inside cheek areas of your mouth. If you notice any of the above symptoms, contact your dentist immediately.

During your routine check-up make sure to demand an oral screening test so that you are not one of the 85% of the population that has not had an oral examination. There are two new breakthrough screening tests that are effectively aimed at preventing oral cancer:

The Velscope sees early changes in cells in the mouth where they become dysplastic or unhealthy. The Velscope’s blue spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce, looking like a green-apple color. If there is an abnormality, the oral health professional will see the green color turn black.
If abnormal tissue appears, there is a second screening test, the Oral CDX brush. This test is like a pap smear for your mouth. The Oral CDX brush can save lives in much the same way as the pap smear has increased the survival rates for cervical cancer; since routine use, cervical cancer has gone from the second to eleventh leading cause of death.
Call your dentist today to schedule your next routine examination and remember that this routine checkup could save your life!

How to take care of your Teeth and Mouth

Dr Oz and Dr Roizen in this video look inside your mouth and offer tips on keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Plaque in your mouth can indicate plaque in your arteries and that is a leading cause of heart disease stroke and even impotence. So protect your pearly whites it will keep you beautiful. Your teeth help you with a wide range of tasks including chewing are also a very good marker of health. If your gums are inflamed your teeth are falling out, or your teeth are getting grounded like fresh pepper. These problems can affect the health and beauty of your entire body.

They talk about tooth grinding and splitting your teeth. Mouthgurards made in our dental office can protect you from this. Your jaw exerts 50 to 250 pounds of pressure per square inch during chewing. It is extremely efficient and only joint in the body that purposely dislocates itself during motion. A good way to relax your tempomandibular (TMD) muscle is to place a cork between your front teeth. If you lose your teeth your jaw bone will erode away as well. Use it or lose it. The main purpose of your jaw bone is to support your teeth. Major cuase of tooth loss is Gingivitis (Gum Disease) not a cavity. 80% of us don’t floss and when you do that you are not cleaning 40% of your tooth.

Finally they discuss staining your teeth and how to prevent that. Don’t avoid health foods like berries, soy sauce, cranberry juice, wine etc. but swoosh with water when done. Keep whitening foods like apple celery around.

Link between Unhealthy Gums and Cancer !!!

Latest research finds direct link between unhealthy gums and cancer throughout the body !!!

The link between gum disease and oral cancer has been clear for sometime. Now the latest research also links poor oral hygiene to increasing cancer risk throughout the body, including breast cancer. In fact, one study showed a 75% increase in breast cancer in women with gum disease compared to women who didn’t have gum disease.

The danger occurs if you don’t brush and floss effectively. Bacteria forms in the mouth, plaque builds up, and inflammation forms in the gums, increasing the possibility of cancer anywhere in the body. Because of hormonal changes that occur during monthly menstruation and menopause, women experience more gum sensitivity and inflammation, putting them at greater risk.

You must practice proper brushing and flossing. The average American brushes for 38 seconds a day, but you really need to brush for about 2 minutes and also floss daily. See your oral health care provider to determine if you have too much plaque build up. You can also find out by chewing dental plaque disclosing tablets that can be ordered online.

Besides flossing and brushing, add this extra secret weapon: neem bark extract. Neem bark extract acts as an anti-inflammatory to prevent gum disease and can also be ordered online; take it in a cup of tea or simply dilute it in a little hot water once a day as part of your oral hygiene routine.
