Although your dentist may suspect the disease, you can't tell for sure from an x-ray alone. To diagnose osteoporosis, you will need to see a doctor for a bone density test.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
DID YOU KNOW?
*The average amount of money spent each year on DENTISTRY is $50 Billion.
Compare that to:
*The average amount of money spent on PET FOOD each year, which is also $50 Billion!
*The average amount of money spent each year on HAIR CARE - $100 Billion!
*The average spent on legal GAMBLING each year - a staggering $300 Billion!!!
It would seem that we really have no excuse to put off a visit to the dentist, based on those facts!

MYTH #2: AFTER ANY BLEACHING PROCEDURE TEETH DO NOT REMAIN PEARLY WHITE FOR A VERY LONG TIME. TRUTH: In average, the effect can last for about a year or so, but after every additional bleaching procedure the duration of the effects usually decreases. Generally most patients will "touch up" bleach their teeth periodically to maintain their pearly whites.
MYTH #3: IT IS NOT HARMFUL TO WHITEN YOUR TEETH WITH SODIUM BICARBONATE OR BETTER KNOWN AS BAKING SODA. TRUTH: It is, actually, very harmful, because sodium bicarbonate we use for baking has very strong abrasive effects. If you want to whiten your teeth in an easy way, the use of special whitening toothpaste with bicarbonate contain much smaller particles of bicarbonate and they do not damage teeth as much.
MYTH #4: HYDROGEN PEROXIDE WILL WHITEN MY TEETH ID I SWISH WITH IT DAILY. TRUTH: While peroxide MAY slightly lighten your teeth if swished with, it CAN however cause serious chemical burns to the soft delicate tissues inside your mouth. This route is highly discouraged by dental professionals.
MYTH #5: IF MY TOOTH ENAMEL IS WHITE, THE TOOTH MUST BE CONSIDERED HEALTHY. TRUTH: This is absolutely not true! A tooth can look healthy and white, but, at the same time, it can have cavities, problems with the root or other abnormalities that require treatment.

- It’s all about the fluoride- when buying toothpaste look for the one with added fluoride.
- Look for the seal of approval- when looking for toothpaste look for the ADA seal before purchasing.
- Whitening toothpastes work—at least to a certain degree- All toothpaste contains mild abrasives to help remove surface stains on your teeth, but toothpast does not have bleach, so you will not get the professional look.
- Less is more- Most people pile on the toothpaste, I know I do! But did you know actually less is better? All you need is a pea size amount!
- How you brush is more important than what you brush with- when brushing your teeth you need to brush at a 45 degree angle, and brush in a circular motion!
- What’s inside your toothpaste might surprise you- some ingredients inside your toothpaste are seaweed and detergents. This is how they get your toothpaste to foam.
- Pastes or gels—they all do the trick- they both work equally!

For instance, did you know that it can:
` Remove minor scratches on music CD's and DVD's?
` Be used to remove small scratches on your car?
` Clean jewelry?
` Remove crayon marks from walls?
` Clean piano keys?
` Shine Chrome?
` Take the pain and itching away from bee stings and bug bites?
` Take the redness out of acne blemishes?
` Remove scuff marks from shoes?
Toothpaste (when used in the regular form, not the gel) has slight abrasive qualities and can be used for many purposes as a light rubbing compound, which allows it to perform all the extra duties mentioned above! It's a handy thing to have and is a ready staple in everyone's home.
Hope you enjoy these helpful hints!
