Marijuana has been readily available these days in our society, the general consensus in the population that it's not harmful, and it's a safe thing to use.
Now we have some major studies that extensively examined the association of Marijuana use with some serious problems in the mouth. Here is the list I copied from the American Academy of General Dentistry Impact publication:
Loss of the bone supporting teeth in the mouth.
Tooth decay, and tooth loss.
Tooth staining.
Dry mouth (which contribute to decay and gum tissue inflammation)
Gingivitis, and periodontitis.
Gingival hyperplasia (increase in the size of the gum tissue).
Gingival Leukoplakia (precancerous).
Increase appetite for cariogenic foods and drinks.
Oral Cancer.
Oral candidiasis (fungal infection).
Possible peripheral dilatation and tachycardia associated with Marijuana toxicity when an anesthetic is given.
Uvilitis.

Hello friends and patients, just want to share this important study linking periodontal (gum) disease with kidney disease. I'm copying it from the publication Dentistry Today.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects 26 million American adults, with millions more at risk, according to the National Kidney Foundation. It damages the body’s ability to remove wastes from blood, leaving sufferers at best tired and unable to concentrate, eat, and sleep. But it also could lead to anemia, weak bones, nerve damage, heart and blood vessel disease, and even death.

CKD primarily is caused by diabetes and high blood pressure, yet periodontal disease may play a role too. Research has implicated it as a novel risk factor for CKD, though evidence of its association with kidney function decline over time has been limited. Scientists at the University of California San Francisco, however, recently completed research investigating this association.

During a longitudinal retrospective cohort of 761 elderly men with preserved kidney function at baseline, researchers performed multivariable Poisson’s regression to examine the association of severe periodontal disease with incident CKD. They defined severe periodontal disease by 2 criteria: equal to or greater than 5-mm proximal attachment loss in 30% of teeth examined (European Workshop in Periodontology Group C, European Workshop); and 2+ interproximal sites with attachment loss equal to or greater than 6 mm and 1+ interproximal sites with probing depth of equal to or greater than 5 mm (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/American Academy of Periodontology [CDC/AAP]).

At baseline, the mean age of the subjects was 73.4 years (standard deviation 4.8), and 25.4% of the participants had severe periodontal disease. After a mean follow-up of 4.9 years (standard deviation 0.3), 56 participants or 7.4% had incident CKD. Severe periodontal disease was associated with a twofold greater rate of incident CKD after adjusting for confounders compared with not-severe periodontal disease by European Workshop criteria, but it did not reach statistical significance by CDC/AAP criteria.

The researchers concluded that severe periodontal disease may be associated with clinically significant kidney function decline among a cohort of elderly men. Their paper, “The Association of Periodontal Disease with Kidney Function Decline: A Longitudinal Retrospective Analysis of the MrOS Dental Study,” was published by Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation.

When should my child have an orthodontic exam?
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, your child should have an orthodontic check up no later than age 7. The check up might identify an existing problem, or a potential for a future problem, that will require an immediate interception, or a recommendation to monitor the child growth and development. Early treatment allows us to prevent some problems from developing into bigger and more complicated ones. In most of these cases we can achieve results that may not be achievable, once the jaws and face are fully developed.

How to choose a tooth brush?
The manufacturing companies add campaigns, had turn this to a big confusing mess to consumers. Here is the menu, we have manual, and powered brushes, with bristles that could be flat, dome shape, rippled, etc.., we have soft, medium and hard bristles, we have small, medium and large bristle size. For handles we have straight, angled and flexi grip handles, etc. The best toothbrush is one that fits your mouth and allows you to reach all teeth surfaces easily. Both manual and powered toothbrushes can effectively clean your teeth. Powered brushes could help a person with special need to brush with ease .Children may find that brushing with a powered toothbrush is fun. Whether you decide on manual or powered, choose a toothbrush that you like and find easy to use. Brushing should be done twice a day, for two minutes to thoroughly clean all the surfaces of your teeth, especially before going to bed. Some studies have suggested that sonic brushes provide superior brushing quality. To sum it up, for a manual brushes I suggest a small head, with soft bristle, angled handle brush. The fancy Sonic brushes all are nicely designed and do a great job. The spinning powered brushes I’m not big on those, mainly because you loose your dexterity and tactile sensation while brushing, however they might be more useful for kids.
