This patient is in her late sixties. It has been over 20 years since her last dental visit. Her treatment plan includes a full lower denture.

The CDC states that nearly 1 in 2 adults over thirty have some form of periodontal disease. So many factors contribute to this statistic: access to care, patient education, fear, the list goes on. Please take the time to educate each and every one of your patients. Your role as an educator cannot be under estimated!

Dental Hygiene with Kara RDH

Today is National Tooth Fairy Day! The tooth fairy myth in the United States took the form of the story we tell today in the early 1900s. The tooth fairy is based on European myths and other traditions.

Europeans from before the Middle Ages were actually very concerned about the correct disposal of primary teeth. The belief was if a witch got a hold of a tooth (or fingernail clippings and hair) the witch could curse a child. So centuries ago it was a common practice to bury a child’s primary tooth in the ground when it fell out. This would prevent a curse and was done so that a permanent tooth would grow in its place. As people migrated to the States and began to live in cities where a yard wasn't always available to bury a tooth, flower pots were used. Eventually, this led to the tooth being “buried” under the child’s pillow.

But where did the money part come from? In the Middle Ages, from what is now Scandinavia, the Vikings paid children for a lost tooth a tann-fé (tooth fee). The teeth were, in turn, worn on a necklace for good luck in battle. The idea of exchanging a tooth for coins advanced throughout Europe, though it did not yet involve a fairy. The fairy probably came from English literature.

The 1927 play by Esther Watkins Arnold and the 1949 book by Lee Rogo, both called “The Tooth Fairy,” give the myth a permanent place alongside Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.

From burying teeth to avoid curses to The Rise of the Guardians, the tooth fairy has come a long way!

Dimensions of Dental Hygiene

An updated Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study published in the Journal of Periodontology, “Update on Prevalence of Periodontitis in Adults in the United States: NHANES 2009-2012,” reports that 63% of Hispanic adults in the United States have periodontitis. NonHispanic Blacks have a 59% prevalence rate of periodontitis, followed by Asian-American adults with a prevalence rate of 50%. Regarding age groups, periodontal disease is present in 68% of US adults age 65 and older. Additionally, the study confirms early contentions that approximately half of all Americans age 30 and over—64.7 million Americans—have periodontitis.
