October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.

Since its inception more than 25 years ago, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer. NBCAM recognizes that, although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. Today, we remain dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health.

Although October is designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, NBCAM is dedicated to raising awareness and educating individuals about breast cancer throughout the year. For more info follow this link:

Hot Drinks

Black tea and coffee contain stain-promoting tannins that lodge into the pits and grooves of the tooth enamel, producing a rough, stained surface, which is sticky and can retain decay-producing bacteria.

Consume such beverages in moderation, drink more water every day, and add milk to your coffee or tea to help neutralize the acids.

As you age, you're more susceptible to decay near old fillings or root surfaces unprotected by receding gums. But there's no reason you can't keep your teeth. Oral disease-not aging per se-is the danger. And if you have arthritis, there are dental products that can make brushing and flossing less painful.

DYK? Birth Control

Because oral contraceptives mimic pregnancy, they can also lead to gum inflammation and infections, including gingivitis.

If you use birth control pills, it's not a bad idea to discuss their effect with your dentist before major procedures.
