Halloween is just a few days away now, and that means tons of candy for you and your little one to munch on!  Dentists are suggesting chocolate candy instead of hard candies due to the tannins in the chocolate not allowing bacteria to grow on the teeth.  Whereas the hard candies stick to and in between the teeth weakening them and ultimately causing decay.

Kids are going to eat all different kinds of candy, just remember to brush and floss right away!  Have safe and Happy Halloween!

It has been recently published that people diagnosed with meningioma, a generally non-cancerous tumor, are more likely to report that they have received dental x rays in the past.....

Let's examine this...

  •  More research is needed to prove that these tumors are caused by dental x-rays
  • "Recall Bias" can be very unreliable
  • Some studies are from decades ago when old x-ray technology and slower speed film had been used
  • ADA still recommends dental x rays taken to properly diagnose and treat
  • ADA also has specific guidlines to ensure the radiation exposure is very low
  • Precautions with thyroid collars and abdominal shields are used
  • Many oral diseases can't be detected from physical examinations

The most valuable tool in detecting oral diseases and problems is with a Dental X-Ray!

Please speak with Dr. Le if you have any questions or concerns!!
