Agoura Hills Dentist, Dr. Philip Shindler, Comments on the Study Linking Genes to Bacteria Behind Tooth Decay

16 12 2017

Philip Shindler DDS AGOURA HILLS, Calif. December 15, 2017 More than nine out of 10 Americans under the age of 64 have some degree of tooth decay, according to a report published by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. Although the outer layer of teeth, or enamel, is the hardest substance in the human body, it can be destroyed by bacteria. Oral bacteria break down food and release acids that decay the enamel. Over time, this can lead to a cavity, which cannot be reversed. Agoura Hills cosmetic dentist, Dr. Philip Shindler, comments on a recent study that links genes to the bacteria to blame for tooth decay. The microbiome in a human mouth is affected by many things, including genetics, according to a recent study that was published in “Cell Host & Microbe.” During the study, researchers evaluated 485 twins so that they could eliminate questions of nature versus nurture. The 205 identical twins had oral microbiomes that were more similar than those of the 280...

With Upcoming Roadside Assistance Benefit, FEBC Takes the Edge Off Mountain Driving

16 12 2017

SAN RAMON, Calif., Dec. 15, 2017 -- The United States is home to a number of mountain ranges. Whether motorists are driving through to a ski resort, making a cross-country trip, or just going on their daily commute, mountain driving requires special attention and planning.

However, it can be hard to plan for every possibility, and things on the road might go wrong. To help members better deal with this unknown, Financial Education Benefits Center is rolling out a roadside assistance benefit that will allow eligible members to call for and receive help for a variety of car issues 24 hours a day."Whether you're going up to Tahoe or driving through the Rockies, mountain driving can be unnerving," said Jennifer Martinez, Manager at FEBC.

San Fernando Valley Dentist, Dr. Ramin Assili, Comments on the Study Linking Rheumatoid Arthritis and Gingivitis

15 12 2017

Michel Elyson DDS SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, Calif. December 15, 2017 Research has revealed a link between gum disease and several serious conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and dementia. A German study has recently linked rheumatoid arthritis with gum disease as well. San Fernando Valley dentist, Dr. Ramin Assili, comments on the new study linking rheumatoid arthritis with gingivitis. Gum disease and RA both attack healthy tissue and cause similar types of damage. The inflammation associated with gum disease destroys gum tissue and the bones and ligaments that support the teeth, which can lead to tooth loss. With RA, the inflammation attacks the soft tissue that lines the joints and eventually destroys the bone. People with these conditions tend to have higher inflammatory biomarkers such as interleukin-6, but they are also more likely to suffer from both conditions. According to German researchers, those with RA are eight times as likely to suffer from gum disease as those...
