Episode 32: Saliva can be contagious and transmit periodontal diseases
[embed]https://youtu.be/s4btIiofVf0[/embed] In this episode of " The Wonder Tooth Podcast", I would like to raise awareness that saliva can be contagious and literally transmit some infections. The reason of this episode is that I attended a show recently called " The Human Fountain" which was completely against any oral hygiene. Kissing can be contagious and spread some infections, so please this is a reminder to increase oral hygiene and personal hygiene in general. If your partner has Periodontal diseases, that needs to be immediately addressed. Bacterial Presence: Saliva contains a variety of bacteria, both beneficial and harmful. WhenPeriodontal Pathogens: Specific bacteria associated with periodontal diseases, such as Porphyromonas gingivalis and Treponema denticola, can be present in saliva. These pathogens contribute to the development and progression of gum diseases.Open Mouth Sores or Cuts: If either individual involved in kissing has open mouth sores, cuts, or wounds, the risk of transmitting bacteria increases. The pathogens present in saliva can easily enter the bloodstream through these openings.Poor Oral Hygiene: Individuals with poor oral hygiene may have a higher concentration of harmful bacteria in their saliva.Transmission of Inflammatory Molecules: Besides bacteria, saliva can carry inflammatory molecules associated with oral diseases. These molecules can contribute to the inflammatory response in the partner's mouth, potentially worsening existing periodontal conditions.Risk of Cross-Infection: Engaging in intimate activities increases the risk of cross-infection, especially if one partner has an active periodontal infection. It is important to note that while kissing can potentially contribute to the spread of periodontal diseases, maintaining good oral hygiene practices, regular dental check-ups, and addressing any oral health issues promptly can help mitigate these risks.

Episode #30 Can a tooth Infection be life-threatening?
Dental infections can arise from various factors, often involving the invasion of harmful bacteria into the oral tissues. Here are common causes of dental infections:Tooth Decay: The most prevalent cause of dental infections is untreated tooth decay. When acids produced by bacteria in plaque erode the tooth enamel, it leads to cavities, creating an entry point for bacteria to penetrate the inner layers of the tooth.Gum Disease (Periodontitis): Gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease, can progress to periodontitis if left untreated. In periodontitis, bacteria proliferate in the pockets between the teeth and gums, causing inflammation and potential infection.Dental Trauma: A cracked or broken tooth resulting from an injury can expose the dental pulp to bacteria. This may lead to infection if the damage is not promptly addressed.Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate dental care, such as infrequent brushing and flossing, allows bacteria to accumulate on the teeth, forming plaque. Over time, plaque hardens into tartar, fostering bacterial growth and increasing the risk of infection.Compromised Immune System: Individuals with weakened immune systems, whether due to medical conditions, certain medications, or treatments like chemotherapy, are more susceptible to dental infections.Invasive Dental Procedures: Dental treatments or procedures that breach the protective barriers of the tooth, such as root canals or extractions, can introduce bacteria and increase the risk of infection if proper post-operative care is not followed.Poorly Fitted Dental Appliances: Ill-fitting dentures, braces, or dental appliances can create areas where bacteria can accumulate, potentially leading to infections in the surrounding tissues.Dry Mouth: Reduced saliva flow, often caused by certain medications or medical conditions, can create an environment conducive to bacterial growth, increasing the risk of infections.Tobacco Use: Smoking or using tobacco products can compromise the immune system and impair oral health, making individuals more susceptible to dental infections.Systemic Diseases: Certain systemic diseases, such as diabetes, can impact oral health and increase the likelihood of dental infections.The treatment of dental infections typically involves addressing the underlying cause, eliminating the infection, and restoring oral health. The specific approach may vary depending on the severity of the infection, but common treatment options include:Antibiotics:Dental Procedures:Root Canal TherapyTooth ExtractionScaling and root planningDrainage Pain ManagementWarm Saltwater RinsesImproved Oral Hygiene

Episode 26: Can Poor Posture affect your Teeth?
in this exciting episode of " The Wonder Tooth Podcast" we will delve into how poor posture can affect your body in general but your oral health specifically. How can Physical therapy help adjusting and correcting our poor posture.We will interview Dr. Bigliani from Fluid physio in Lawrenceville, NJ about how can a poor posture affect our body and specifically our oral health.Poor posture can potentially affect your teeth and overall oral health. The relationship between posture and oral health is complex and interconnected. Here are some ways in which poor posture may have an impact on your teeth:TMJ Issues: Poor posture, especially in the neck and shoulders, can contribute to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction. Misalignment in the jaw joint can lead to issues like jaw pain, clicking, or difficulty in jaw movement.Teeth Grinding (Bruxism): Bad posture, particularly in the upper body and neck, may contribute to an increased risk of teeth grinding or clenching. Bruxism can lead to excessive wear on the teeth, jaw pain, and increased risk of dental problems.Jaw Muscle Tension: Improper posture can cause muscle imbalances and tension in the neck and facial muscles, including those involved in chewing. This tension may contribute to jaw discomfort and potential dental issues.Breathing Habits: Poor posture may affect your breathing patterns. Chronic mouth breathing due to poor posture can lead to dry mouth, which, in turn, increases the risk of dental issues such as cavities and gum disease.Orthodontic Concerns: Posture can influence the development of the facial and jaw structures. Poor posture during childhood may contribute to orthodontic issues, potentially affecting the alignment of teeth and the bite.Facial Aesthetics: Prolonged poor posture can affect the overall facial aesthetics, potentially leading to changes in the alignment of the jaw and the position of the teeth.It's important to note that while there is a connection between posture and oral health, the impact can vary from person to person. Addressing poor posture through exercises, ergonomic adjustments, and maintaining good overall health habits can contribute to both musculoskeletal well-being and oral health. If you have concerns about your posture and its potential impact on your teeth, you can contact Dr. Gianna Bigliani and Dr. Radwa Saad.Dr. Gianna Bigliani:Fluid Physio:160 Lawrenceville Rd, Suite 16Lawrence Township, NJ, 08648Tel #609-436-0366Youtube: Fluid Physio l Physical Therapy - Princeton - YouTubeWebsite: www.fluidphysio.comif you have any questions or looking for a consultation or a second opinion, please reach us atInstagram: @radwasaad_dmdFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/RadwaSaadDMDDent Blanche Dental3640 Lawrenceville Rd, Princeton, NJ, 08540www.DentBlancheDental.comOffice# 609-890-1888

Episode 25: Stop the Grinding
In this new Episode of " The Wonder Tooth Podcast", we will discuss TMD problems.An Interview with Dr. Bigliani, from Fluid Physio about the contributing factors and different techniques to alleviate the TMD pain.Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) problems present a complex and interconnected challenge that requires collaboration between dental professionals and physical therapists for effective management. From a dental perspective, TMJ disorders involve dysfunction or misalignment of the jaw joint, often resulting in pain, clicking, or difficulty in jaw movement. Dentists play a crucial role in diagnosing these issues through clinical examination, imaging, and assessing dental occlusion.Treatment options may include bite splints, orthodontic adjustments, or, in severe cases, surgical intervention. On the other hand, physical therapists focus on the musculoskeletal aspects of TMJ problems. They address muscle imbalances, joint mobility, and posture to alleviate pain and restore optimal function. Physical therapy modalities may include exercises, manual therapy, and posture correction to improve jaw movement and reduce muscle tension.The collaboration between dental and physical therapy professionals ensures a comprehensive approach to managing TMJ problems, addressing both the dental and musculoskeletal components for a holistic and effective treatment plan.Contributing Factors of TMJ diseases include:Malocclusion: Misalignment of the teeth, leading to an improper bite, can contribute to TMJ pain by placing stress on the jaw joint.Bruxism (Teeth Grinding): Persistent teeth grinding or clenching, especially during sleep, can overwork the jaw muscles and lead to TMJ pain. It could be due to Sleep Apnea.Trauma or Injury: Physical trauma to the jaw, such as a blow or impact, can damage the TMJ and surrounding structures, causing pain and dysfunction.Stress and Anxiety: Emotional stress can manifest physically, leading to habits like clenching the jaw or grinding teeth, exacerbating TMJ pain.Arthritis: Conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can affect the TMJ, causing inflammation, pain, and reduced joint function.Poor Posture: Incorrect head and neck posture can strain the muscles around the jaw, contributing to TMJ pain over time.Chewing Habits: Excessive gum chewing or consistently chewing on one side can imbalance the muscles around the jaw joint, leading to pain.Genetics: Some individuals may be predisposed to TMJ issues due to genetic factors affecting jaw structure or joint function.Dental Procedures: Prolonged dental treatments that require the mouth to stay open for extended periods may strain the TMJ and surrounding muscles, causing pain.Hormonal Changes: Hormonal fluctuations, particularly in women, have been linked to an increased risk of TMJ pain, potentially due to the effect of hormones on joint and muscle function.How to Alleviate TMJ Pain:Hot and Cold Compresses: Applying a hot compress to the affected area can help relax muscles, while a cold compress can reduce inflammation and numb pain in the...

Episode #24 Which Teeth Whitening products to use for a Dazzling Smile?
In this new Exciting Episode of the "Wonder Tooth Podcast", we will delve into the Teeth Whitening world. There is a plethora of teeth-whitening products available, catering to diverse preferences and budgets. Over-the-counter options, such as whitening toothpaste, strips, and gels, are easily accessible and generally more affordable. These products typically use mild bleaching agents like hydrogen peroxide to remove surface stains. While they can produce noticeable results, the effectiveness may vary, and it might take longer to achieve desired outcomes. On the other hand, professional teeth-whitening treatments, often administered by dentists, utilize higher concentrations of bleaching agents, delivering faster and more dramatic results.Whitening Toothpaste:Mild abrasives and bleaching agents.Concentration: Low.Whitening Strips:Thin layer of peroxide adhering to teeth.Concentration: Moderate.Gel-Based Over-the-Counter Products:Often come with trays for customized application.Concentration: Varies, typically moderate.In-Office Laser or Light-Accelerated Treatments:Higher concentrations of bleaching agents.Concentration: High.Take-Home Kits from Dental Professionals:Professional-grade ingredients.Concentration: Variable, often higher than over-the-counter options.Concentration levels may vary between specific brands and formulations, and it's essential to follow product instructions for safe and effective use. Professional treatments generally have higher concentrations but are administered under controlled conditions by dental professionals.if you have any questions or looking for a consultation or a second opinion, please reach us atInstagram: @radwasaad_dmdFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/RadwaSaadDMDDent Blanche Dental3640 Lawrenceville Rd, Princeton, NJ, 08540www.DentBlancheDental.comOffice# 609-890-1888

Episode 23: Gratitude and Thanksgiving: A Healthy Perspective by Dr. Radwa Saad
In this new Episode of The Wonder tooth Podcast, we will discuss the strong impact of Gratitude on your overall health including your oral care.Gratitude has a profound impact on overall health, extending its benefits to oral care and the well-being of our teeth. The connection between being thankful and oral health can be summarized through several key points:Stress Reduction: Gratitude practices have been linked to reduced stress levels, which is crucial for preventing oral health issues such as teeth grinding and clenching.Immune System Boost: A grateful mindset has been associated with a strengthened immune system. A robust immune system is vital for preventing oral infections and maintaining gum health.Positive Habits: Grateful individuals are more likely to engage in positive health behaviors, including consistent oral hygiene practices such as regular brushing and flossing.Mind-Body Connection: The mind-body connection is evident in oral health, with emotions impacting habits like diet and oral care. Gratitude fosters a positive mental state that can influence these habits positively.Reduced Inflammation: Chronic inflammation is a risk factor for various health issues, including gum disease. Gratitude may contribute to reducing inflammation, promoting healthier gums.In essence, cultivating gratitude not only enhances mental well-being but also plays a pivotal role in fostering habits and conditions conducive to excellent oral health.if you have any questions or looking for a consultation or a second opinion, please reach us atInstagram: @radwasaad_dmdFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/RadwaSaadDMDDent Blanche Dental3640 Lawrenceville Rd, Princeton, NJ, 08540www.DentBlancheDental.comOffice# 609-890-1888
