Dr. Klyber's Holiday Message

Once again, the Holidays have arrived.  Where did 2013 go? It seems like just a few weeks ago we were busy with Fourth of July cookouts, standing outside in the warm summer evening, watching fireworks. And now, we are enduring snow,  ice and shoveling duties.of which is designed to help with large, unexpected expenses.

At the Office, we've seen the excitement in the eyes of children when we ask them what they are wishing for. Their joy is contagious! It's usually a request for something that either requires a plug or batteries, but the expectations of happiness are the same.

Even Hidden Gum Disease Puts Diabetics in Danger

It happened again just the other day. I bumped into a friend I hadn’t seen for a while and he told me he’d just been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes – the kind where your body continues to make insulin but can’t use it properly.

Seems like that’s happening to more and more people I know, but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. I’ve read that experts estimate more than 20 million Americans have the disease.1

Oral Cancer Screening Saves Lives

And this simple exam is quick and painless

 

It’s called mouth cancer, tongue cancer, lip cancer or oral cancer – and this year alone, approximately 36,000 Americans will be diagnosed with it.

 

That works out to about 100 new cases a day. What’s more, unlike many other forms of cancer, oral cancer is actually becoming more common. In fact 2010 was the fourth year in a row where there was an increase in the rate of occurrence.

 

So what can you do to protect yourself?

The Good News About Bad Breath

 

Everybody worries about their breath from time to time – like after a meal filled with plenty of onions and garlic. 

 

For some people, though, the worry never goes away.

 

They buy mouthwash by the gallon and pop breath mints by the handful, but they still worry that their breath is bad. And they’re still afraid to get close to people – even the ones they love most.

Solving the Mystery Behind the Pain

Putting up with constant discomfort is hard – but not knowing why you’re suffering makes it even harder.

It’s a problem that’s more common than you might think. Over the years I’ve talked to people with earaches, headaches, dizziness, facial pain – the list goes on. But in every case there’s no sign of infection or injury. Just that mystery pain.

Uncover a Beautiful Smile

A friend of mine told me the other day about an elementary school he’d been to where every classroom boasted a big, bold sign that said “If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.”

That strikes me as a terrific thought and a great message to give our kids.

No More “Surprise” Cavities!

Did you know that traditional exams miss 76% of the most common cavities? It’s probably happened to you. You’d been taking great care of your teeth — brushing often, flossing carefully and seeing us regularly. Then suddenly (usually after several really good check-ups) we find a BIG cavity — one that needs attention right away. 

 

And I’ll bet you asked yourself how that could possibly happen.
