Planning a spring break scuba diving trip this year?

Scuba divers may want to stop by their dentist's office before taking their next plunge. A new pilot study found that 41 percent of divers experienced dental symptoms in the water, according to new research from the University at Buffalo. Due to the constant jaw clenching and fluctuations in the atmospheric pressure underwater, divers may experience symptoms that range from tooth, jaw and gum pain to loosened crowns and broken dental fillings.

Eat healthy and drink fluoridated water

Studies show up to a 40 percent reduction in cavities following community water fluoridation. Fluoride effectively helps control and heal early signs of tooth decay!

Is the cold weather causing tooth pain?

During the winter your teeth can start to cause you some pain. There are several possible causes including: tooth decay (cavities), fractured teeth, worn fillings, gum disease, worn tooth enamel and exposed tooth root.

Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity.
