Stress & Your Brain

We’ve all experienced it before. You’re in a meeting giving a presentation, writing a paper for school, or talking to a friend when suddenly you just can’t seem to find the word you’re looking for. Or, you’re reading a book and suddenly realize that you have been looking at the same page for the last ten minutes but can’t remember anything that you read.

Why take your Periodontal Disease or Gum Infection seriously?!!

post by Synergy Dental Group

Periodontal disease or gum infection is an inflammatory disease that is caused by specific harmful pathogens in your oral cavity. The oral cavity is an open system exposed to the environment. Furthermore, the possibilities of foreign material entering the system from the oral cavity are heightened due to the constant intake of food and liquids through the mouth. Approximately 500 different bacterial species and various human viruses are associated with dental plaque. In the recent years research has shown a strong correlation between oral and systemic diseases. Significant associations have been linked between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, preterm low birth weight, and osteoporosis have been discovered, bridging the once-wide gap between medicine and dentistry. Knowing this important information please don’t allow your self or your loved ones to delay treatment of this harmful disease any longer.

post by Synergy Dental Group

What is a cold sore?

A cold sore, also known as a fever blister is caused by the reactivation of a virus called HSV-1. It is typically seen as a cluster of small blisters which quickly rupture to form small ulcers. Many lesions are commonly preceded by an itching, burning or tingling sensation. The lesions are often painful and can come back on a regular basis. The lesions begin quickly, and can be triggered by exposure to sunlight, local trauma, stress, or a decreased immune system. The blister and ulcer stages of the infection are contagious and usually heal within 7-10 days.

My dental sleep medicine story: 15 years of dental sleep education

post by John Nadeau

Every single person has a story, every single person has a real world experience with sleep apnea. Not one person, not every other person, every single one. I think this is amazing when we look at prevalence and how widespread this problem is with your patients – every one of them has a story as well, your job is to uncover it.

post by Pat McBride

I have always loved the rain! The first droplets heralded an immediate dash for wellies and umbrella followed by an immediate exit to the yard. Living in California, there were no worries about getting soaked to the skin or sick, we simply had a blast jumping into puddles and splashing around. As far as my mom was concerned, with six children under 12 years old cooped up, God had made us waterproof, “Everyone out! Go have fun, and don’t traipse water across the floors when you come in.” Every kid should have it so hard.

Understanding the Oral-Systemic Connection

In recent years, there has been a shift in how dental care and oral health is approached. The belief that the mouth and body are symbiotic partners has begun to shape how many dental professionals recommend dental care for their patients, leading to terms like “oral-systemic connection” and “total body wellness” to become common descriptions for dental services. However, what do these terms actually mean? Furthermore, how does this new approach to dentistry affect the long-term oral and overall health of patients?
