At Randolph Dental Care, we provide a wide range of services for our patients, including areas of specialty, like treatment for sleep apnea in Randolph. Sleep apnea is categorized as a sleep disorder, which affects more than 25 million adults in the United States. The disorder causes numerous pauses in breathing frequently while sleeping. While there are various factors that increase your risk for the disorder, such as obesity and age, there is also another connection. There is evidence that TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorders) and sleep apnea often go hand-in-hand. In the past, the two were often viewed separately. However, there is evidence that both conditions may be caused by the same underlying factor.

A Low-Carb Diet Stops Periodontal Inflammation 18 Aug 2016 Richard Gawel Todays Dental News 1738 times Healthy food may be the best cure for gum problems. Researchers from the University of Freiburg in Germany have discovered that a low-carb diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins C and D, antioxidants, and fiber can significantly reduce periodontal inflammation. The researchers recruited a group of 15 subjects, with 10 serving as the experimental group and 5 serving as the control. The experimental group began eating the recommended foods, while the control group continued their normal eating habits, both for 4 weeks. Based on their results, the low-carb diet had a positive effect on oral health. The study, “An Oral Health Optimized Diet Can Reduce Gingival and Periodontal Inflammation in Humans—A Randomized Controlled Pilot Study,” was published by BMC Oral Health. Dr. Johan Wölber and Dr. Christian Tennert, 2 of its authors, discussed its results and its implications for practitioners with us. Q: What prompted your investigation into the connection between diet and oral inflammation? A: We were very impressed by the results of the Baumgartner et al (2008) study where participants in a simulated stone-age environment showed lower gingival inflammation even though they had more plaque. This motivated us to look closer at the relationship between diet and gingival inflammation.
Q: Why do carbohydrates have such a negative impact on inflammation? A: We have to be precise here and to differentiate between high-glycemic carbohydrates like saccharides, honey, wheat flour or starches, etc, and complex carbohydrates like most vegetables, greens, beans, fibers, etc. While the former seem to directly promote inflammatory processes, insulin distribution, and an inhibition of fat-burning metabolism, the latter seem to have a rather neutral influence on blood sugar and an inhibiting effect on inflammatory processes.
Q: What role should dentists play in addressing patients and their diets? A: Based on the current results and results from other studies, diet has a profound effect on gingival inflammation. Accordingly, the dentist has the opportunity to rather easily detect overconsumption or mis-consumption of certain nutrients and accordingly recommend a more anti-inflammatory diet. Due to the recommended reduction of high-glycemic carbohydrates, this diet also will be anticariogenic, in addition to other positive effects.
Q: Specifically, what foods should dentists advise their patients to limit and avoid? A: Based on our results, patients should avoid high-glycemic carbohydrates like sugar, white grain flour, etc, and pro-inflammatory fatty acids, especially Omega-6 fatty acids and trans-fats.
Q: Also specifically, what foods should dentists advise their patients to include and increase in their diets? A: Based on our results, dentists should advise a mainly plant-based low-carb diet rich in micronutrients, antioxidants (eg, berries), Omega-3 fatty acids (eg, linseeds) and Fibers.

Dentists’ Role Vital in Aftermath of 9/11
Share this post
Nearly 3,000 Americans lost their lives on September 11, 2001 in the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil. As we commemorate the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our country, we honor the victims and their families and express gratitude to those who worked tirelessly in the aftermath of this tragedy.
Two of our Dental Product Shopper evaluators, Dr. Glen Goldstein and Dr. Kent Caserta, played a crucial role in identifying victims of the 9/11 tragedy.
Glen Goldstein, DMD of Randolph, New Jersey, helped identify victims of both the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the subsequent crash of American Airlines flight 587.
Goldstein tells Dental Product Shopper about his experience:
One of my patients, Nick Rowe, was on the top floor of the World Trade Center and was lost that day. His loss and my commitment to give back gave me urgency to help in any way I could. I spent many months on Fridays going to New York and working at the medical examiner’s office. What I saw was horrific and very difficult for all, but I was honored to help bring closure to the families of all of those innocent victims.
