April 11 - 17, 2018 www.TheTownCommon.com Page Health & Wellness By J. Peter St. Clair, DMD Changing our behavior, habits, attitude, or any aspect of our lives can be a difficult thing to do. I am not writing as an expert on this subject as I have the same struggles as everyone else with change. However, repeated awareness of changes we want to make is one strategy to move us closer to making that change. A good example is Mary, a patient of mine. Mary is an adult who has had issues with decay (bacterial disease that breaks down tooth structure), dental erosion (chemical breakdown of tooth structure), and gum recession (loss of the supporting structures of the teeth). When people like Mary present with these problems, we dentists present treatment to “fix” the problems. However, the reasons “WHY” these issues are occurring are just as important, if not more so, than the “fixes” we propose. Mary drinks diet soda. In fact, Mary doesn’t just drink diet soda; she has a diet soda by her side all day long. At a recent event I If your cable bill keeps climbing, you don’t have to give up your television. There is a way to keep watching your shows and movies at a fraction of the cost. It’s called cord cutting. “Cord cutting” means that you can dump your cable company, replace it with a small indoor HDTV antenna and a streaming device, and sign up for individual services for much less than you’re paying now. Brighter Smiles... The Common Denominator saw Mary sitting and listening intently to the presentation. At her side was her diet soda. Every few minutes Mary would unscrew the diet soda cap and take a swig. The three main dental issues Mary has: decay, erosion, and recession, have many different etiologies. One common denominator is pH, which is a scale used to describe the acidity or alkalinity of solutions or environments. The lower the pH the more acidic the solution or environment is. In order for any of the three disease processes described above to occur, the pH of the oral environment has to be acidic. While there are many reasons the pH of the oral environment can be acidic, such as medications or disease, dietary factors play a significant role. A pH lower than 5.5 in the oral cavity puts you at risk for dental disease. Most tap water, for example, has a pH of 7. The average diet soda has a pH of 3.28. Stomach acid has a pH between 1-2. Diet soda is very acidic. Having a diet soda with a meal on occasion is most likely not a problem. Typically, after consumption of an acidic beverage, your saliva will neutralize (make your mouth more alkaline and less acidic) within about a half hour. That is Senior Scene Cut Cable, Save Money There are new streaming devices every day: Roku, the Roku stick, Amazon Fire stick and more. Roku connects to your TV with an HDMI cable ($10) and runs on Wi-Fi from your Internet. The stick plugs right into your TV. The little device will cost you from $30 to $100, depending on which one you select. With Roku alone you can access thousands of channels, many of them free. Some will cost you a few dollars a month. Before you sign up for any channels, give yourself a month of sampling what you can get on your device for free. If you’re ready to venture out and add channels, consider why you may have heard that you should wait at least a half hour before brushing your teeth after meals. The problem with Mary sipping the diet coke all day long is that the pH of her mouth is always acidic. This creates a very dangerous environment. Quieter drills, new materials and technologies will not solve these problems. While etiologies Northern Essex Fuel Corp. Automatic Delivery 24 Hour Burner Service Reliable . Honest .

Avoidable dental problems are the last thing a patient wants to hear about and a dentist wants to see. In addition, we as providers need to adopt a more preventive approach to the conditions I discussed in this column. Next week I will introduce you to one way I am currently studying.

Hulu, on the other hand, airs many network shows the next day or week. If you’re an Amazon Prime customer, look through its movie and TV offerings for no additional cost, or access premium channels (such as HBO and Showtime) at a discount. That’s where you need to beware. Make your choices carefully, or you run the risk of signing up for so many that it equals the cable bill you just got rid of. Take it one step at a time.
