Survey Finds Association Between Self-Reported Well-Being, Oral Health

A release on PRNewswire (4/18) states that most adults in the US reported “an increase in their well-being this year compared to last,” according to a Delta Dental survey. The survey also finds that adults who report a commitment to oral care are “nearly three times as likely as those who aren’t (25 percent vs. 9 percent) to give their well-being an ‘excellent’ rating.” In addition, those who give their oral health an “A” grade are “more likely to rate their overall well-being as excellent, as opposed to those who give their oral health a lower grade (46 percent vs. 9 percent).”

Some People Using Apple Cider Vinegar For Teeth Cleaning, Whitening

CNN (4/18, Lamotte) reports that some people are touting the benefits of apple cider vinegar for a variety of conditions, including diabetes, weight loss, dental care, and more. CNN spoke with several people, including ADA Spokesperson Dr. Alice Boghosian, to determine what science says about the most common purposes for which people are using apple cider vinegar. In response to claims apple cider vinegar used as a mouth rinse or rubbed on teeth can clean and whiten teeth, Dr. Boghosian said that is “the last thing you’d want to do to promote oral health” due to the acidic nature of apple cider vinegar. “What would be a healthier option is to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes, with a toothpaste with the ADA seal,” said Dr. Boghosian. Dr. Boghosian adds, “Anything acidic which contacts your teeth will wear out the enamel, the protective coating, and that will cause cavities.”

Researchers Believe Crooked Bite In Children May Indicate Early Life Stress

The Daily Mail (4/14, Matthews) reported that a crooked bite, caused by a misaligned jaw, may be a more accurate measure of early life stress than low birth weight, according to a study published in the American Journal of Human Biology.
Psych Central (4/16, Pedersen) reports that the new study at the University of Washington “suggests that an asymmetric lower face is an accurate marker of early life stress occurring after birth.” Study author Philippe Hujoel, an adjunct professor of epidemiology in the School of Public Health and professor in the School of Dentistry, said, “Such lower-face asymmetries can be assessed by looking at the dental bite in the permanent teeth – an exam that can be completed in seconds and with more certainty than a mother’s recall of birth weight and more ease than a search for a birth certificate.”

Flossing Still Important For Oral Health - Despite Sensational Media Coverage
Noting a news story last year questioned the benefits of flossing due to a lack of research, USA Today (4/15, May) reported American Dental Association spokesperson Dr. Matthew Messina says flossing is still important and may help prevent dental caries and gum disease. “Brushing is very important but you can’t get the bristles in between the teeth,” Dr. Messina said. “Floss pulls bacteria and plaque and food that smells bad.” USA Today noted “the ADA recommends brushing twice a day and flossing once a day.”
