Boy Staged Own Kiddnapping to Avoid Dentist

Fear of the dentist has hit the absurd, as a 12 year old French boy staged his own kidnapping to avoid a trip to the dentist.  He had an  incredible flair for detail describing his abductor to police as a muscular European man in his 30's with a black shirt, light jeans and a vertical scar on his right cheek.  All lies.
Fear of the Dentist is Quite Common for Children.
Although, odontophobia, or fear of the dentist is common, faking a kidnapping is taking it to the extreme.  

For a month, police searched to no avail.  Skepticism grew after police viewed camera security footage, and re-questioned the child.  He admitted the kidnapping was a rouse to avoid his dental appointment. His parents have not commented as of yet.  

If you have dental anxiety or fear of the dentist, you suffer odontophobia.  +Verde Pointe Dental Associates and dentists +Suzanna Aguilera +Kirk Kimmerling DDS would be happy to accommodate your needs.  The office caters to cowards, chickens and people of all ages.  The Marietta dentists understand how fear can escalate.  Far too many people suffer dental fear and anxiety.  Let Marietta emergency dentists help achieve a healthy mouth.

Would You Stuff Your Mouth With Rags to Look More Beautiful?

Queen Elizabeth I is an iconic beauty from past centuries with chalky white skin and a receding hairline.

The Tudor Queen used white face paint and plucked her hair to get the receding look. She was self-conscious about her sunken hollow cheeks from missing teeth, so she reportedly stuffed rags into her mouth to puff out her appearance. 

The Queen had interesting make-up. Let's take a look;
  • She mixed red dye with toxic mercuric sulphide to redden her lips.  (mercury poisoning)
  • She dabbed on a pasty white lead and vinegar over her face and neck to maintain snow white flawless skin.(banned in most counties)
  • A black lead sulphide, Kohl was used to outline her eyes, a trick still used today.
This iconic look was preserved in only a few portraits, and +Verde Pointe Dental Associates along with +Kirk Kimmerling DDS and +Suzanna Aguilera have noticed she's not smiling.  Perhaps she can't wait to get the rags out of her mouth.

Dental Implants Have been done for 2,500 Years

A 2,300 dental implant replacing an upper incisor was found in the timber burial chamber, Le Chene,
First Known Dental Implant
Northern France.  It is believed to be the oldest dental implant in dental history dating back to the Iron Age. The tooth was placed in a 22 year old woman after death for decorative purposes. During the Iron Age, teeth were added after death to improve appearance for after life. The procedure would have been too painful and excruciating to endure while alive. If placed while alive, it would have led to infection and death.

The corpse was found and excavated by Guillaume Segin in 2009.  The skeleton was not well preserved, however the teeth were in correct position with a metal pin located in missing tooth position.  A tooth would have been attached.  The implant preceded the oldest known by 400 years, also found in France.

The Marietta dentists, +Kirk Kimmerling DDS and +Suzanna Aguilera at +Verde Pointe Dental Associates place modern day dental implants at the dental office.  The dentists are happy to consult and answer questions concerning missing teeth and replacing them with dental implants at our expert dental facility.

You Love Soda but Your Teeth Hate It

More people than ever are facing enamel erosion of their teeth, and what they're drinking is the
Sensitive Teeth Can be Excruciating
culprit.  Enamel, the outer, protective layer of the tooth can erode away leaving exposed more sensitive portions of the tooth. Once the enamel's gone, it's gone for good and can not be reversed. It's a significant problem for many people and dentists alike.

The skyrocketing sensitivity epidemic is caused by many factors, however a big culprit is soda. The phosphoric and citric acids prevalent in sodas alter the pH balance of the mouth and causes enamel to erode.

The sensitivity can be extreme and plague people the rest of their life. Even hot and cold temperatures of food and drink can be continually bothersome and painful.

People are drinking more soda than ever, an estimated 44 gallons a person per year, according to the National Soft Drink Association.

The best way to ward off erosion is to abstain from soda. However, for those who insist, here's a few tips to consider.

1. Limit consumption only to meals.
2. If you must have a soda, drink it at once.  Do not sip it continually throughout the day.
3. Drink water after you have a soda to cleanse the mouth.
4. Brush after drinking a soda, if possible.
5. Chew Trident Gum after drinking.
6. Ask your dentist about fluoride treatments in the office and product to take home.
