This is why your dentist takes x-rays. You can see by the photo that the teeth look fine. But when the radiograph is taken, you can see an interproximal cavity in-between the teeth on the right side of this upper bicuspid tooth. The bacteria that eat your teeth, Streptococcus mutans, are facultative gram negative anaerobic bacteria that cannot live in oxygen. This is why they grow best in-between the teeth where there is no air containing oxygen and can only be cleaned with dental floss. Did you floss today? When was the last time you had a dental exam that included x-rays?

Creating precious Christmas Memories – Dr. Puntillo with his granddaughter Sabiha.
Obviously did not visit his Hygienist regularly!
We are Thankful for the confidence our patients have shown in us over the years!
I am proud to introduce Dr. Julia Kennedy, who will be joining our practice in January of 2015. As many of you already know, I am retiring after practicing dentistry in Burlington for 40 years. It was important to me to carefully select a doctor who would care for my dental family with excellence, care and compassion. I have faith and trust in her – and I know you will also.
A sneeze zooms out of your mouth at over 600 mph!
Yes, this does happen! Dogs also love Mouth Guards. They think they are chewy toys.
We honor those who serve. A very blessed Veteran’s Day.
November is Diabetes Awaremess Month. People with poorly controlled diabetes are more susceptible to dental problems. They are more likely to have infections of their gums and the bones that hold the teeth in place, because diabetes can reduce the blood supply to the gums. In addition, high blood sugar may cause dry mouth and make gum disease worse. The decrease in saliva can cause an increase in tooth-decaying bacteria and plaque buildup. When a person with diabetes has good blood sugar control, there’s no increased risk of dental problems.
Colgate has created a very ingenious advertising campaign to promote their dental floss. But. . before I explain to you the main detail of these images, I shall let you observe them quietly on your own.
Does sugar cause tooth decay? Not exactly . . . It was the ancient Greeks who first noticed that sweet foods had a bad effect on teeth. One Greek book called Problems asks “Why do figs, which are soft and sweet, destroy the teeth?” Today we know that the real problem isn’t so much sugar, but the streptococcus bacteria in our mouths that like to feed on it. When they feed on the sweet treats lodged in your teeth, they excrete acids that eat away at your tooth enamel. . As it happens, the amount of sugar you eat doesn’t matter as much as the amount of time it is allowed to remain in contact with the plaque on your teeth (that’s where the bacteria hang out.) So go ahead and eat that pound of caramels—just brush your teeth afterward.
Happy Halloween from Dr. Puntillo & our dental family!
Send us pictures of your Halloween costume!
And scary things come to those who do not Floss as well!
The Worst Halloween Candy for your Teeth Some Halloween candies have minor effects on your teeth, but these three categories of candies are likely to leave you looking like a toothless jack-o-lantern. 1. Sour Candy. Sour gummy worms. Lemon drops. Sour Patch Kids. Warheads. If it makes you pucker, it probably contains large amounts of acid. Acid is bad for your teeth because it wears down the tooth enamel, which protects your teeth. This makes it easier for teeth to become chi. pped or broken. Enamel also insulates the tooth. A lack of enamel can expose the nerves in your teeth, which are extremely sensitive to changes in temperature of the things you eat and drink. 2. Hard Candies. If you simply must have candy, chewy candies are a better option if you wish to avoid dental problems. Hard candies take much longer to dissolve in your mouth than chewy candies, meaning that you are essentially bathing your teeth in the sugar and acid for longer, making your teeth more vulnerable to cavities. Try to steer away from hard candies like suckers or jawbreakers this Halloween and opt for Starburst or Skittles instead. 3. Sticky Candies. Coming in the #1 spot for the worst candies for your teeth are sticky candies. Taffies, caramels, or candies filled with coconut, peanut butter or nuts fall into this category. These candies leave a sticky residue on your teeth and gums which acts as an adhesive for bacteria, ultimately resulting in decay. Many chocolate bars like Twix, Milky Way, Mounds or Snickers are guilty of this effect, so be sure to brush your teeth after indulging in these tasty treats.
