Most studies show that the first thing people notice when they meet someone new is how a person smiles. Artists, poets, authors and screenplay writers have all based many stories around the way someone smiles. Some have said that a person’s smile can tell you a lot about the individual. With all the emphasis put on a person’s smile, one cannot blame individuals who are self-conscious about their smile and teeth. Most people want that beautiful, pearly white smile that can stop traffic and light up a room, and many people feel that they do not have it for several reasons. There is a solution for these patients. Veneers are an easy fix for damaged teeth or to cover teeth that are not aesthetically pleasing. For many dental patients the installation of veneers is a simple, quick and uncomplicated option to fix and change the appearance of their smile when they are unhappy.
Take a step back and think, where do you breathe in and out from? Most of you will probably say your nose and think that this question is completely silly and weird, but some of you would say that you breathe from your mouth and wonder why we are asking you to pay attention to this issue. “Mouth breathing” is an actual ailment and condition that can lead to various sorts of problems. So, if you answered that you breathe from your mouth, or someone you know breathes from their mouth, it is time to stop! Breathing from your mouth is just fine when one is exercising, but when it is done excessively due to allergies, sinus or nasal congestion it may result in many problems. The reason for this is because of the air being much cooler and less filtered than when it is breathed in through the nose.

Using mouthwash is very important for keeping your teeth and gums healthy and your breath minty fresh. But when choosing a brand of mouthwash, which one are you supposed to buy? Buying the correct mouthwash may save your life. Some studies show that it is better, and safer to buy an alcohol-free mouthwash. These studies have shown that those who use an alcohol-based mouthwash twice a day are six times more likely to develop a form of oral cancer. Other studies have found no such relation between the two.

We have all heard about the devastating tragedy which struck the island nation of Haiti in 2010. A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit the country with such force that has left many people homeless and injured. The capital city of Port-au-Prince was left in ruins and various outreach and volunteer groups flew over there to help get the city back into shape. As part of the effort to help get better health care into the country Rank My Dentist helped sponsor a team of 12 people, many of them students and faculty from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and New York University College of Dentistry, to collect data from the Haitian island of Île à Vache’s population’s dental health and knowledge.
