Guerra Dental Tips:

Don't toss your floss!
You may have heard recent news reports that question the benefits of flossing. However, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the American Dental Association (ADA) still consider flossing to be an integral part of your oral hygiene routine. Get the facts about flossing from the ADA: http://bit.ly/1nPckz1


Here's another compelling reason to stop the pop and make water your drink of choice! A new study found that drinking soda and other sugary drinks isn't just bad for your teeth— it may also put you at risk of developing gallbladder cancer. Learn more here: http://nbcnews.to/29JWzKv

The old adage "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is certainly true in the case of oral cancer. Oral cancer is as common as leukemia and claims more lives than either melanoma or cervical cancer, but early detection gives you a 90% chance of survival. We screen for oral cancer at each dental exam. You can learn to recognize the signs and symptoms here: http://bit.ly/17XHnAQ

Tooth decay is the most common childhood disease, but luckily, there are a number of things you can do to prevent it:
* Help your child eat a balanced diet.
* Limit snacking.
* Help your child brush and floss for two minutes twice per day.
* Bring your child to the dentist for exams regularly.
