June is men’s health month in the US. This month is dedicated to raising awareness about common oral and overall health concerns that affect men, especially those that are often overlooked. When it comes to dental care, research indicates that men are much less likely to keep up with their regular oral hygiene routines and preventive dental checkups. This puts them at increased risk for oral health issues that can negatively impact every aspect of their day to day life from the simplest smile to eating a healthy diet.

Want to get you children to visit the dentist without complaining? Have an older child encourage them to go. That’s exactly what’s behind the new initiative between Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation. Scouts can now earn colorful badges for learning about oral health, sharing what they learn with their fellow Scouts and promoting good oral health habits within their communities. Port Orange dentist Dr. Sean Bannan is on board with the program and he encourages all of his patients to support the growing initiative.

We’ve got some big news this morning regarding you and your gum health this morning. The American Association for Cancer Research recently published an important study — they found that women with gum disease are more likely to develop breast cancer than women who have healthy gums. As your dentist in Port Orange, we know that’s distressing news, especially when you consider the fact that nearly 75 percent of Americans suffer from gum disease. (Read the full study in a new window here.)

It’s 9 pm, you’re midway through your favorite show and you want a snack. Wander into the kitchen and what do you choose? Ice cream is tempting, but in the end you choose your favorite: chocolate chip cookies.
What you may not realize is that you’ve just put your teeth under siege. For the next twenty minutes, in fact, the sugar in that nighttime snack will combine with plaque in your mouth to weaken your enamel and allow tooth decay to begin. And if you don’t brush and floss as thoroughly as you should before you go to bed that night, it’s even easier for decay to set in.
We all know that our diet affects our health. That’s old news. But what many adults don’t realize is that the foods you eat–or don’t eat–play a big role in your oral health, as well. The vitamins and minerals in certain foods can go a long way in strengthening your teeth to prevent against decay, so make sure you’re giving your teeth everything they need to stay healthy by incorporating these four things into your diet today.
