Who Needs to Wear a Mouthguard?

Who needs to wear a mouthguard? I used to think that only boxers wore mouth guards, but I was wrong! Let’s hear what Dr. Jergins has to say on the subject of mouth guards.

“The most obvious use for mouth guards is in sports, especially for children,” says Dr. Jergins of ClearWhite Dental. “Having said that, mouthguards are very important in contact sports such as football, hockey, and lacrosse.

Should You Stop Flossing?

Dr. Jergins of ClearWhite Dental recently came across a dentist on the web who is telling his patients to stop flossing their teeth.

Here’s what the New York doctor said…

Yep, you read that right: I’m a dentist and I’m suggesting that you throw away your floss. 

The dentist goes on to say that oral irrigation is better than flossing.  What does Dr. Jergins think about this?

“First, please do floss!” says Dr. Jergins. “While flossing is not 100 percent effective in removing bacteria and food build up below the gums, it does a world of good.  Plus, for those who can’t afford an oral irrigator, flossing contributes greatly to … Read the rest
