Those shiny, silver “amalgam” fillings.  Many, many of us have had them, especially if you are over the age of 40.  Yet, my friends, these seemingly harmless “silver “fillings are filled with 50% mercury.  (YES, that much mercury!)  As a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology  (IAOMT) I have learned just how dangerous these seemingly innocuous silver (mercury) fillings can be to our bodies.  Let’s call them mercury-silver fillings because that’s what they really are. They do great damage to our body, and our overall health.   ..read more

As dental professionals, our goal is to help enable our patient to have a healthy oral cavity. One of the very best tools in our dental therapeutic toolbox is unknown to most of the dental profession. It is not a medicine but rather the essence of life itself- oxygen- but even better- super oxygen- in the form of oxygen-ozone therapy.  It is the safest medical therapy ever derived, it plays an important role in health, healing, and our wellbeing. Oxygen-Ozone Energy and Sunlight make Super Oxygen-Ozone O2-O3 is one of the greatest oxidizers in nature. It is formed when high energy electr ..read more

Journey to Become a “BioLogical” Healer
Queen of Dental Hygiene

Ten years ago this month, I started my dental health blog. The most important part of my patient care is giving my patients information. Appointment times are far too short to scrape tartar, polish teeth, take x-rays or perio probe gums, and get the doctor to do an exam AND do patient education.  So, thanks to my lovely daughter and editor, I started writing weekly articles for my patients.  Queen of Dental Hygiene was born.    I love being a dental hygienist. More specifically, I love being a biological dental healthcare healer.  How is biological dental healthcare di ..read more

Children Get Gum Disease Too
Queen of Dental Hygiene
by Barbara Tritz
2M ago
Parents always ask me, “Does my child have any cavities?” What I also want parents to wonder and ask; “Does my child have gum disease?” People – parents – don’t know what they don’t know! Too often, we dismiss a “little bleeding” or tartar buildup in children (never mind adults) as poor oral hygiene and admonish them to brush and floss. Yet, this build up of plaque and bleeding are actually signs of infection and inflammation which cannot resolve on its own with more brushing or different toothpaste. They won’t outgrow it. It is a disease. February is Children’s Dental Health month so today’s ..read more

Defeat Dry Mouth
Queen of Dental Hygiene

2M ago
We need to talk about dry mouth or as we call it in the profession: xerostomia. Not a day goes by I don’t have a patient or two that is affected by it. If you have it, you know how very uncomfortable it is, and are desperately seeking relief and solutions. Dry and Parched For those with severe dryness, it means life is uncomfortable. Without that elixir of life- saliva-things in the mouth fall apart rapidly. Burning mouth, bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease rear their ugly head. It leads to a round-robin of dental treatment and continuous repair. Dental appliances don’t fit well. Sleepin ..read more

This blog has been a little quiet of late. I have been invited to give a two-hour presentation to the San Joaquin Valley Dental Hygienists’ Association on the controversies surrounding fluoride. It has taken time to unearth the real, hidden truths surrounding the most used tool in dental hygiene. The information I will be sharing may shock you. Learn the facts. That innocent looking tube of toothpaste may be the root of many of your health problems. The contents of which we have been assured are safe, as well as critical to the health of our teeth, may in fact be poisoning you. Do we even nee ..read more

Group Smiles are the best! Today’s post is about some teeth “basics”. What their functions are, what they are made of, and their inner workings. For most, this may be just a review, but important information because the next few articles will be about tooth sensitivity: its causes, and how to help stop or at least reduce it. For that, you need this basic information first. Tooth Basics So, for those new to the whole “teeth” thing: They have some very important jobs to do and often they get no respect. They literally start the process of digestion. They help you speak clearly. They develop and ..read more

The A, B, C’s of Oral Health
Queen of Dental Hygiene

Food IS Medicine What if we, in the dental profession, are doing dental healthcare all wrong? We continue to scale, polish, and lecture about oral hygiene, and our patients do their best to comply. Yet, dental disease is still at epidemic levels with at least 40% of the population having gum disease. By age 34, 80% of folks have had at least one cavity. “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Rita Mae Brown I had a patient that had uncontrolled bone loss, red, bleeding tissues, and was losing teeth.
