WE TEND TO ASSUME that people from earlier eras (especially the pre-industrial ones) must have had terrible dental health, but that’s not always true. 🤨 While we get to benefit from modern dental care, braces, and root canal therapy here in the 21st century, the ancient Native Americans did a pretty good job of taking care of their teeth.

Perhaps the biggest thing they had working in their teeth’s favor was their diet. The early Native American diet consisted of corn (maize), beans, squash, fish, game, and plenty of fresh fruit and nuts. 🌽🐟🍎🥜 That kind of high-fiber diet is great for dental health because the harmful bacteria in our mouths need sugar and starch to multiply. High-fiber foods actually help to scrub our teeth clean as we eat them!

Tooth decay and gum disease might have been uncommon for the early Native Americans, but they weren’t nonexistent. If you ever go check out the Manitou Cliff Dwellings by Colorado Springs, you can see the holes left by advanced gum disease in the jaw bones of some of the replica skulls. Aside from diet, early Native Americans used used chewsticks and chewed fresh herbs to keep their teeth clean and healthy. 😁 Chewsticks are twigs with one frayed end to chew and clean the teeth and one pointy end to use as a toothpick, and herbs like mint, cucacua, and sage were great for fresh breath. #DentalHistory #FunFact #NativeAmericans

TEACHING A YOUNG child dental hygiene habits isn’t always easy. They have seemingly endless energy and very short attention spans, and a toothbrushing session won’t always go as planned. 🤪 Here are a few things we recommend:

1. Make brushing a priority. When we act like brushing our kids’ teeth is an inconvenient chore, that’s how they’ll view their dental hygiene routine. Show them that this is an important, unskippable part of every morning and evening.
2. Brushing doesn’t have to happen in the bathroom. On a difficult day, brushing their teeth right where they are could save both parent and child a lot of frustration.
3. Toothpaste isn’t as crucial as brushing. Whether the toothpaste ran out, went missing, or a young artist has been using it to practice their finger-painting skills, it’s fine to brush without the toothpaste now and then. The routine is more important.
4. Let them pick out their toothbrush. This will make them feel more in control, and they’ll be happier to use it.
5. Brush in front of the mirror. When they start brushing their own teeth, they’ll do it in front of the mirror, so this is the best place to brush their teeth for them at first. It will help them feel involved.
6. Make it fun! The more the grown-ups act like brushing is fun, the happier the kids will be to cooperate. 😄 Keep up a good attitude about it and help them enjoy it by playing fun music to time their two minutes of brushing. #BrushYourTeeth #BrushingTips #OralHealth

NOT MUCH WAS understood in Medieval England about cavities or gum disease, but they cared a LOT about keeping their breath fresh. 👅They didn’t know about germs, and they believed that bad smells were infectious on their own, including bad breath.

How did smell-based dental care work? Mostly by chewing spices. You can even find evidence of this practice in the Canterbury Tales. Chaucer’s characters keep their breath fresh by chewing cardamom and licorice. Women were sometimes recommended a mixture of aniseed, cumin, and fennel.

So which dental problems went unaddressed while all the focus was on breath? They didn’t have to worry about cavities too much because sugar wouldn’t enter their diets until the 1400s, but grinding flour between millstones tended to leave tiny bits of stone in their bread. You can imagine how much that could damage their teeth over time, and it was a big reason most adults would lose four to six teeth in their lifetimes. 😬

What if you got a toothache? Well, if you were rich, you could treat it with myrrh and o***m. If not, you might be instructed to burn a mutton fat and sea holly seed candle very close to your tooth. 🕯This was supposed to make the “worms” inside the tooth fall out into a basin of water. (We’re very glad to live in the 21st century, where we know worms don’t cause toothaches.) #DentalHistory #MedievalEngland #FreshBreath

UP TO 20 PERCENT of habitually snoring children have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that results in brief but repeated interruptions to normal breathing during sleep. 😴Not only is this a potentially life-threatening disorder, it also has a significant impact on oral health.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the result of a blockage in the airway, typically the tongue collapsing against the soft palate, which in turn collapses against the back of the throat, closing off the airway. The interruption to breathing causes the person to wake up, which can happen many times in a night and severely harms the overall quality of sleep.

So what’s the connection to teeth? 🤔In addition to leaving a child with all the usual symptoms of sleep deprivation, such as exhaustion, difficulty concentrating at school, irritability, and hyperactivity, sleep apnea has a number of effects on oral health. There is a significant association between OSA and moderate to severe periodontitis (gum disease), but the most common dental health complications are temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ or TMD).

Studies have shown that the jaw reflexively clenches to prevent the airway from becoming blocked when the throat relaxes during a sleep apnea episode. TMD leads to other problems like worn, cracked, or broken teeth, pain when chewing, chronic headaches, and neck and shoulder pain. This is why the dentist is often the first one to spot the signs of sleep apnea! ☝️ #SleepApnea #tmj #tmd #osa
