Here are some fun dental facts we thought you'd enjoy!
1) The average human produces 25,000 quarts of saliva in a lifetime. That is enough spit to fill 2 swimming pools!
2) You are should not keep your toothbrush near a toilet. The airborne particles from the flush can travel up to a distance of 6 feet. Yuck!
3) People who drink 3 or more glasses of soda each day have 62% more tooth decay, fillings and tooth loss than others.
4) In 1994, a prison inmate in West Virginia braided dental floss into a rope, scaled the wall and escaped. (We suggest that you use floss to clean between your teeth instead of climbing prison walls! If you don't you are missing around 35% of your teeth's surfaces.)
5) You should replace your toothbrush at least every three months, and always after you have an episode of flu, cold or other viral infections. Notorious bacteria can implant themselves on the toothbrush bristles leading to re-infection.
6) Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body. However, we do not recommend that you use your pearly whites to open bottle caps!
7) The standard advice to "see your dentist twice a year" was actually invented by an ad agency for Pepsodent toothpaste! Your dental professional should recommend the correct schedule for your regular dental visits.
9) According to a recent survey done by Time Magazine, 59% of Americans would rather have a dental appointment than be sitting next to someone talking on a cell phone.
10) Three out of four people in the United States suffer from some form of gum disease. It is the leading cause of tooth loss in people over age 35. The good news is, in most cases gum disease can be prevented or controlled!

Who knew that yogurt could be good for your teeth!
It appears that plain, simple yogurt may be the newest superhero in our ongoing battle against gum disease.
Researchers at Kyushu University in Japan studied nearly a thousand subjects between the ages of 40 and 79, and found that those with higher intakes of lactic acid foods like yogurt exhibited significantly fewer signs of periodontal (gum) disease. The study concluded that regularly eating yogurt may help keep your gums and teeth healthy.
Gum disease is an infection that occurs in the gums, deep tissues and bones that support your teeth. Without treatment, gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Many studies cite gum disease as the primary cause of tooth loss in adults age 35 and over.
The best way to fend off gum disease is to follow the same measures you take to avoid cavities:
• Brush your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste
• Floss every day between each tooth and behind your molars
• Have your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular schedule
• Avoid smoking and tobacco use
• Maintain a healthy diet (and perhaps add some yogurt!)

Dr. Jorge Coro just got back from Naples, Florida where he attended the North Atlantic Edward H. Angle Society Meeting. The Angle Society is a very prestigious organization in which membership is by invitation only. Dr. Coro is currently an Affiliate Member and to complete his membership requirements, Dr. Coro will be presenting a research paper and two clinical cases at next year's meeting in Rome, Italy.
The main purposes of the Angle Society are:
-To promote education standards for the training of the orthodontist.
-To promote research in the art and science of orthodontics and related basic sciences.
-To publish and disseminate the results of such research which will contribute to the advancement of the standards and ideals of the specialty of orthodontics.
