    Today is Single-Tasking day

    Single what day? Single-tasking day is a day where you take one task and give it 100% of

    your focus!

    According to mentalfloss.com February 23, 2016 is “Single-Tasking Day.”

    To Floss

          Floss is all there is.               Try 100%  flossing.

     

    A far cry from what some call “single’s awareness day” (Feb. 14), single task day is for

    all of you multi-taskers out there. While we all tend to juggle making dinner, doing

    homework, checking social media, ordering from Amazon, and chatting with the family

    all at one time, today is the day to make the madness stop!

    It may seem like a weird and silly holiday- and we totally agree(d). Until we stopped and

    really thought about how often we only give things a percentage of our focus and decided

    that today, together as an office, we are going to focus on one thing.

    One thing at a time.

                        One thing at a time.

    The last night’s snow moon reflects the sun just like your smile mirrors your overall health. The new moon is a great time to reflect and make choices toward health.

    Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body

    Why are Dr. Frankel and his staff always saying “Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body?” 7 quick facts that explain why maintaining good oral health is essential to achieving great overall health.

    Oral health and overall health are not mutually exclusive, in fact, they are inextricably connected. WOW! That’s a lot of big words, but basically what we are saying is if you let the health of your teeth and gums decline, you are setting yourself up to get really, really sick.

    Dr. Frankel with Patient

    Routine cleanings, flossing, sealants and fluoride may seem like a hassle, but in reality

    they are saving you from dangerous conditions such as heart disease and stroke.

    1.) Gum Disease causes halitosis, better known as “knock-you-over bad breath.”

    2.) 2x. Seeing double? Patients with gum disease are twice as likely to develop heart

    disease.

    3.) 3x. Triple what? Patients with gum disease have an increased risk of stroke triple that

    of those patients without gum disease.

    4.) 4x – the average increased cost of one restorative dental procedure as compared to a

    regular checkup appointment.

    5.) The number of primary things you need to do to maintain your healthy mouth:

     Brush 2x daily

     Floss 1x daily

     Visit 2x yearly

     Avoid tobacco products

     Eat a well-balanced diet

    6.) 62% – The percentage of increased risk, according to Harvard researchers, for

    patients with gum disease to develop pancreatic and kidney cancers.

    7.) 7x. Women with gum disease are seven times more likely to deliver premature or

    underweight babies.

    It is so important to keep a healthy mouth in order to promote a healthy body! Don’t let

    fear, cost, or time be a factor to keep you away. Dr. Frankel says, “I care about people’s

    smiles and firmly believe that with a great smile, you can improve your appearance, self

    confidence, and your life.” You can schedule a free consultation today.

  3. Jon Frankel Familycompressed- CopyBaby Teeth Do Matter

    February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. Children learn good habits at an early age, so it’s important to teach them how to care for their teeth. Baby teeth still need some TLC as proper care for them will ensure their adult teeth will grow in healthy and strong. Be a positive role model for trips to the dentist and make sure the whole family visits for routine exams and cleanings. Visiting the dentist twice a year will help you and your children live a healthy lifestyle.
