YOUR latest NEWSLETTER FROM DENTAL HEALTH ADVICE, APRIL
Welcome to the fourth newsletter from
Dental Health Advice!
Hi, my name is Dr Richard Mitchell.
I've been a dentist since 1979,
working in the United Kingdom, Barbados, Germany, Australia and now
I've written my website and newsletters to give honest and
reliable dental advice
that doesn't depend on you being a patient of ours. I also want to
explain my knowledge as simply as I can... what better way than online?
This month it's the Braun Oral B "Genius"
The Braun Oral B electric toothbrush "Genius" is the
latest and newest brush from the Braun company. It also goes under the
name Braun Oral B 8000 in the USA and 9000 in Europe.
However, it is the name “Genius” that gives a clue to this brush’s
The Braun Oral B genius has BlueTooth connectivity, and can “talk” to
your smart phone. First, you have to download the Oral B Genius App to
your phone. Then it uses the smart phone front camera to “watch” your
brushing, and tries to detect areas or zones that you are missing.
This is intended to show you how to brush better! The Genius also comes
with a hard travel case, which has a USB socket for easy charging on
the road, and also spaces for various brush heads.
So how does the Oral B App for your Smart phone work? Is it any good?
Is it worth the price of the Genius?
I have been testing this brush over this month (January 2017), and I
have been very impressed with it. So much so, I bought one for my
She has struggled a little to find an effective brushing style, despite
my advice and coaching ( !! ); so it was a revelation to see that the
Oral B Genius App was able to help her improve her brushing
effectiveness. I was skeptical at first, that technology could do
better than my one-on-one coaching.
BUT I have been proved wrong. The Technology in the Oral B Genius has
improved my partner’s brushing better than I have been able to achieve.
Score ONE to Technology and Oral B !

Here's what prominant Dallas dentist Dr. Lorin Berland DDS wrote to me
after I sent him a copy of the book:
""Wow! Your denture e-book is extremely comprehensive. I don't think
I've ever seen dentures presented in such a straightforward manner that
is so easy to follow.
I agree with you - this e book addresses the needs of a lot of people.
Dentures have become the neglected step children of dentistry. And that
is sad. This- e book is a step in the right direction."

How can this affect your jaws?
Lyme disease can cause a vague ache and
pain in your jawbone, usually somewhere in the upper jaw. It can feel
like a particular tooth, and can be so isolated to one tooth that your
dentist may start root canal treatment or even extract the tooth!
The effective cure for Lyme disease normally involves antibiotics;
Because Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria, it will normally respond
to common antibiotics.
But how can Lyme disease affect your teeth and jaws?
Well, it doesn't - directly; but is CAN cause an ache in your jaw
around a few teeth, deceiving your dentist into thinking it's
toothache, and even extracting a tooth!
