Great Gums!

Julie from Georgia put up this review on May 8, 2013:  You can find more reviews  here.

She is referring to the HydroFloss Oral Irrigator.

I love to hear these great little reports from customers.   You can read the others  here.

At any rate,  more and more people are going to find out about the Hydro Floss and what it can do for them.

One of the great things you to is use the sulcus tips or what I prefer, the Pocket Pals, to help with deeper pockets. 

I don't know, but it seems to me with all that magnetic power at your finger tips, it can not help but make some improvements, right?

I suppose we are all different, but it seems like this machine really has performed well for a lot of people.    Perhaps not every single person achieves great benefits, but it seems like a lot do.

That's why so many people have good things to say about it.

Smoking And Your Gums

Smoking and Chewing Tobacco Increase Risk For Gum Disease

I guess this should more or less be a common sense statement.  But it is still good to talk about it because there may be people who are not as clear as they should be.

The harsh chemicals in both cigarette smoke and chewing tobacco are harmful to the tissues of the body. The gum tissue, receiving direct contact, can be affected.  Smoking has been indicated as an additional risk factor for gum disease.

Story About Cadaver Lab

When I took Gross Anatomy it was a very interesting experience.  We had a cadaver of about 65 years of age.  He had been soaked in formaldehyde for about 6 months or longer.

He was grossly overweight.  There was a layer of fat under the skin that was quite thick.

When we opened the chest cavity, the first thing I could smell was cigarette smoke.   The lungs were coal black.  They were jet black from the inside all the way to the outside without interruption. 

By contrast, normal lungs are pink in color, like lips.   And this is an important point.

I don't think I have to convince you, warning signs about the toxic effect of cigarettes are even on labels.  I do not think anyone with a shred of rationality is going to argue that smoking is good for you.

Increased risk for gum disease is just one more reason to quit smoking!
