Faith Hill shows off new accessory — Invisalign!

Here at Gladstone Family Dental Group we use Invisalign® to straighten our patient’s teeth. There are still some people that want and need the old metal braces. Faith Hill is one of those people!
Among Faith Hill’s shiny accessories on Grammy night: the braces on her teeth. The 45-year-old music star has joined the growing ranks of adults with orthodonture. Hill told country music station KNIX that her brackets, which she’s had for several months, are necessary because she didn’t wear her retainer as a kid.

Don’t Suck or Lick on Your Child’s Pacifier!

Parents need to be careful with their children’s pacifiers. If not, dental decay could be the result.

Numerous studies show that dental decay can be transmitted to a child when an adult sucks on the pacifier to clean it.

Don’t Suck or Lick on Your Child’s Pacifier!

A recent study in the journal Pediatrics goes into detail about this issue. There are few, if any, immunizing effects from adult saliva. Therefore, licking or sucking something to clean it off does nothing to get rid of germs.


Back-to-School Dental Check-Up

As millions of children head back to school, the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) say it is just as important to examine the mouth as the rest of the body, encouraging parents to make dental exams a regular part of their children’s back-to-school routine. So, beat the rush–call us at 816-452-3420 to get your child’s teeth checked before school starts!

A Little Dental Humor With A Smile!

A woman and her husband interrupted their vacation to go to the dentist. “I want a tooth pulled, and I don’t want Novocaine because I’m in a big hurry,” the woman said. “Just extract the tooth as quickly as possible, and we’ll be on our way.” The dentist was quite impressed. “You’re certainly a courageous woman,” he said. “Which tooth is it?” The woman turned to her husband and said, “Show him your tooth, dear.”


There are many reasons your gums could bleed.

In some cases, bleeding gums can be a sign of gingivitis, the early stage of periodontal disease. If your gums bleed easily or bleed when you brush, talk to your dentist about your oral health. Gingivitis is reversible and preventable.

If you’ve just started a new flossing routine, for instance, your gums may bleed at first as they get used to cleaning between the teeth. This usually goes away on its own in about a week. Some pregnant women develop a condition known as “pregnancy gingivitis,” an inflammation of the gums that can cause swelling and tenderness. Gums also may bleed a little when brushing or flossing. If you take blood thinners, these medications may cause your gums to bleed. Contact your physician if the bleeding does not stop quickly. Your gums could also be bleeding if you brush too hard. Use an extra-soft or soft-bristled toothbrush when brushing your teeth.

If your gums bleed regularly or enough to worry you, make an appointment with your dentist. It could be a sign that something else is wrong.

Always remember to brush your teeth twice a day, floss once a day and schedule regular dental visits
