Prenatal Vitamin D Intake and Your Child’s Cavities!

pregnant

Recent research released and published online in the “Annals of Epidemiology” shows a strong correlation between Prenatal Vitamin D intake and caries rate in children. The risk of cavities was lower in the mothers with higher Vitamin D intake during pregnancy.

 

Pregnant women should make sure they are getting enough Vitamin D during pregnancy, as it has many benefits to both mother and baby. Among those benefits may now also be a lower risk of cavities in your children!

Just a little Wednesday wisdom!

Best, Dr. Frankel

Dr. Frankel Highlighted by Alma Mater, Case Western Reserve University

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 8.03.41 PM

In the Spring/Summer issue of Think Magazine, Case Western Reserve University’s School of Dental Medicine is chronicled & focuses on key differentiators in their program – the thread of professional ethics and emphasis on leadership. These pillars drive their program as well as their students post-graduation, they attest, as they highlight one of their more recent success stories, Dr. Margaret Richards Frankel.

professional-ethics3Frankel began her community service while only a few months into her program – helping to care for the children throughout the Cleveland Municipal School District. Seeing the impact her work had on the children of this community, Frankel was inspired to find ways to continue to give back through her work. She began performing complimentary teeth cleanings to adult patients in the school’s clinic each Friday, but she felt compelled to find ways to impact even more to patients in need in our community and others around the globe.

Over the next two years, Frankel worked with the public 5-days a week at the school clinic, only breaking to volunteer for a summer health-care mission to rural Nicaragua. She has taken these experiences with her following graduation – donating time through Medworks to screen patients for head/neck cancers and finding other ways to be involved in our community outside of medicine (even being awarded this January by the Jewish Federation for her efforts to fundraise on behalf of those in need).

“Philanthropy and volunteerism are a way for me to better connect with people and aid in humanitarian efforts in a world where there are so many in need,” says Frankel. “Volunteering within my profession is a way for me to give back to the greater community and share my expertise with those that may not be able to receive dental care in a private practice setting. I feel so fortunate to give back in Cleveland, a city that has awarded me such a beautiful life.”

Curious About Bad Breath? Ted-Ed Talks Bad Breath!

Bright White Smile

Have you ever been curious as how bad breath forms? Well, recently a Ted-Ed talk reviewed the phenomena of bad breath, scientifically referred to as Halitosis. On April 2nd, The Huffington Post reported that a TED-Ed video narrated by professor Mel Rosenberg explains the causes and origins of Halitosis, which, the Huffington Post reported, “all comes down to the activity of bacteria in the mouth.” The video points out that habits, such as smoking or drinking alcohol heavily can also cause distinct odors on the oral cavity, but that bacteria build-up in the gums between the teeth and on the back of the tongue are the primary cause of halitosis.

Proper oral hygiene and a healthy diet can help keep halitosis at bay, and “the American Dental Association recommends brushing twice per day, flossing and making regular trips to your dentist.” Richards Frankel Dentistry is happy to answer any questions you may have about bad breath, and can review possible reasons it may be affecting you, and how to help keep it at bay.

Authoritative Parenting Style and Your Child’s Dental Health.

kidsFox News reported on a study conducted at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio that children of parents who are supportive and have positive behavior toward their children were less likely to have cavities than those parents who display less supportive behavior. The study analyzed parents and their children ages 3-6 and determined that only 80% of the children of authoritative parents had cavities, but 97% of children of permissive parents had cavities.

Richards Frankel dentistry interprets the information in this study to mean that parents should’t be permissive when it comes to your child’s home hygiene! Parents must make certain that their children brush and floss their teeth. And, for children under the age of six, the caregiver should brush the child’s teeth. 

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month! Come celebrate with us- new patients receive a free exam ( an $80 value), and this includes children!

 

From one parent to another,
