Old Toothbrushes Among Items To “Toss Immediately”

In a consumer-focused article, Realtor (2/3, Evans) includes old toothbrushes among several bathroom items to “toss immediately” for “the sake of space, your health, and your sanity.” The article states that for those who have been using the same toothbrush for more than three or four months “that’s too long,” according to the American Dental Association. In addition, toothbrushes should be replaced sooner if bristles are “bent or frayed,” since they do not clean teeth as well. The article also encourages people to dispose of old makeup; expired sunscreen; hotel toiletries; almost empty shampoo bottles; unused beauty products and gifts; old razors; and expired medications, encouraging people to follow the FDA’s guidelines for safely disposing unused medication.

Reader’s Digest Discusses Dental Etiquette

In a consumer-directed article, Reader’s Digest (2/3, Jung) discusses dental etiquette, featuring advice from American Dental Association spokesperson Dr. Ada Cooper. For example, Dr. Cooper encourages patients to be honest about their dental habits with their dentist, stating that “lying to a dentist will result in damage to yourself because honesty is the only way we can really give our best shot at the best treatment.” Dr. Cooper also recommends patients ask any questions they have, saying “it’s essential that the patient understand the treatment” his or her dentist proposes, as well as “all options and alternatives.” The article states that while dental patients with the flu should reschedule their appointments, those who are “only a little under the weather” are probably fine to still go. “Dentists have very carefully placed hygiene measures in the office to ensure that disease isn’t transmitted,” says Dr. Cooper.

Study Finds Restricting Sugary Drinks At School May Improve Oral Health

Dr Bicuspid (1/27, Roniger) reported a study published in the Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health finds a “significantly lower” rate of cavities in students at a school in New Zealand that “banned sugary drinks,” compared with “neighboring schools without this policy.” The study authors said, “School nutrition policies, particularly those that seek to restrict sugar intake, can have marked positive effects on the oral health of students, and are likely to reduce healthcare costs associated with the treatment of dental caries.”

This controversy of having soda machines installed in schools has been an ongoing concern, as there is no nutritional value in these drinks. What you may not know is that these vending machine companies often provide monetary incentives to schools to allow them to put the vending machines at schools.
