The Closer….. the Better

Closer the better

Toughest job on Earth

What is the toughest job on earth ?

Guess and tell me.

I am sure you can not.

Googling gives you billion answers in nanosecond !

Nothing to compare as to what I am going to tell !!!

If you are eager to know , just answer the following question.

How to tell some one that their breath stinks without hurting their feelings ?

1. When. 2. Where and 3. how to say nice words at the same time stressing the point.

Many times we have seen relationship getting worse when somebody is frank.

Sadly we even avoid the person while in conversation.

And even dread meeting the person.

Or you think it is rude even to give hints etc.

Or just forget everything and continue conversation with the person and just move on….

And quite a few with bad breath go into depression and tend to avoid people or remain in isolation.

Any members ,aware of any Etiquette…if at all it is there ??

Is the ‘Mint’ only solution to overcome this problem ?

That is the reason the World celebrates ‘World Oral Health day’ March 20 and to-day is that day !

Who doesn’t love sparkling smile with lovely set of teeth ?

Why not each and every one of us see the Dentist regularly (once in 6 months) as required.

World Oral Health Day

What are the minimum things we are supposed to do regularly ?

1.Start the dental care for the kids as soon as teeth start forming.2.Brush twice a day,by using proper technique and never forget flossing daily.If you are not aware of flossing take help of you tube or yourDentist.3.Change the tooth-brush once in 3 or 4 months.4.Before going to bed rinse the mouth with anti bacterial solution.5.Forget smoking,tobacco and all other related stuff.6.Eat healthy diet and I need not stress how important this is.7.Consult Dentist once in 6 months.

Ok.Now I come to some common dental problems we face because of our irresponsible habits.

Of course ,these things you already know.

1.BAD breath….this is how I started my topic. 2.Tooth decay.3.Gum disease,4.Tooth sensitivity.5.Oral cancer.6.Of course who enjoys your unpleasant & un-attractive smile ?

Members suggestions/ opinions appreciated.

  1. Apt post for World Oral health day…informative and very sensible post Sri…
    Many have a belief that regular Oral prophylaxis leads to enamel wear and tear faster. Is that true?…here regular in the sense the once in 6 months routine.
    And bad breath is one of the indication of something wrong with your stomach too. So probably a dentist alone might not be able to help you here.
    Flossing again is not much practiced here in India this making the availability of a good dental floss very restricted to some places. And if not done properly it can do harm than benefit.
    Oral hygiene should be instilled from young. Conducting children friendly camps in school can benefit both the children from young and the Pediatric Dentistry to thrive in India.

    • Hi Ana
      Thank you
      1. This belief is 100% Wrong.
      2. Seeing Dentist is as per your convenience.Nothing wrong in consulting dentist once in 6 months.
      3.Halitosis ( bad breath ) is the term used in Medical world.Bad breath has many causes including stomach problems.Oral cause is one of the common reasons for bad breath which can be easily be cured.Once Dental cause is eliminated by the dentist,Gastro specialist can look into stomach causes.
      4.As far as dental flossing is concerned,good products are available.If people are not buying Floss why will medical shopwala keep the stock ?
      Flossing is the best technique to remove the inter dental stuck food particles Only thing is people should be taught properly how to use it.Flossing causing harm to gums very rare,unless you use it roughly.
      5.As you said,conducting dental camps in schools is the best way to bring awareness for the kids.
      Thanks again for these intelligent doubts.
