The ages old debate! Flouride or no flouride. The benefits have been proven over & over again, ad infinitum! The Anti-floridistas will have you believe that ingesting it is dangerous because it is a toxic metal/gas blah-blah-blah whem injected into a lab rat. Well, yes , when you inject anything in its purest form into a lab rat, the chances of the rat living diminish rapidly. They injected 5 gallons of pure Rainbow Stew into a lab rat & guess what/ The rat died!! The ADA has done so many clinical studies on flouride there is little doubt to the benefits of low concentration flouride in public drinking water & toothpaste. If you don't use flouridated toothpaste or drink flouridated water, you are only hurting yourself and helping your local General Dentist!! Very good intel in this 3 min video!!

This little tutorial is on getting your wisdom teeth (third molars) removed.
Like we tell everyone, get them out now. A seemingly universal response is , "Well they are not bothering me so i'll deal with them when they start bothering me!" You simply cannot explain to someone how bad pain is if they have not experienced it before!
Get them out before they start hurting because of the following reasons:
-1) The socket/surgery site will heal so much quicker when the teeth are removed if there is no infection, inflamation or pain at the time of the surgery.
-2) You choose the day when the teeth come out meaning you don't have to disrupt your work, vacation or weekly routine to deal with a painful tooth.
-3) It may take a week or so to get in to an oral surgeons office if your General Dentist doesn't take them out. Try dealing with that when you are in excruciating pain.
-4) When they do start hurting, it is usually on the eve of a 4 day holiday when no dentist or oral surgeon's office is open!
-5) In extreme cases, the tooth in front of the wisdom tooth, the second molar, may have to be removed due to decay caused by plaque and debris accumulation caused by a partially erupted wisdom tooth that is not able to be adequately cleaned!
-6) Once they are out you never have to deal with them again!!
Here is the tutorial:
