May is Physical Fitness Month! At Family Dentistry of Neosho we love to workout and keep our bodies as strong and healthy as our smiles! As you may know, exerting yourself through physical activity is an essential part of staying healthy and strong. It is also known to reduce stress and boost those feel good endorphins after a long day at work!
In recent months, more and more companies have been coming online to promote new clear aligners to straighten your teeth. In theory this sounds like a great idea, but buyers beware!
The research currently shows that these aligners are not yet efficient and will require more updates before being truly accurate. In fact, at this moment, these new styles of aligner hold close to a 75% failure rate, which means instead of actually straightening and aligning your teeth and improving your bite, it could make it worse!
A “Perfect” Summer
2017 Belize Medical Missions Trip
When I think about July, my mind automatically goes to the times spent in Belize with my family. The memories made there are like none other, the sticky humidity, the caring mission team, and children’s smiles that will melt your heart are just a few of the memories. My family and I love going. The relationships forged over the years, along with some dental work thrown in, make our time down there; well “Perfect”. So perfect, in fact, that we keep going back. This was our 9th year and this team was able to see just shy of one thousand patients. On average, the dental team sees about a third of that number and this year we were blessed with two of our very own Neosho Smiles members, Kim Smith and Kim Camerer.
The crazy thing is that some of our patients have never seen a dentist; there is a lot of preventive education that goes on. Often we talk with our patients about the importance of healthy gums and how it pertains to diabetes. There are a large number of people who come through our clinic who have to regulate their blood sugar or worse, they are unaware that they have diabetes. There is a direct link to periodontal disease and diabetes. It is people like you that make this medical mission trip successful each year. The next time you come in ask us about perio and diabetes.
