Dr. Stork Prescribing Healthy Smiles with Crest Pro Health

| May 20, 2014 | Comments (0)

“1 of 2 adults suffer from gum disease.” 1 of 2! I couldn’t possibly be the only one who thinks that that number is awfully high. But then again, gingivitis is deep inside your gums and so one can never know what truly is beneath those smiles. Here’s another one that Dr. Travis Stork threw out there during our interview, “70% of pregnant women suffer from gum disease”. 70%. That makes gum disease a norm. Quite sad, don’t you think? With all the workout and fitness fans and fanatics out there, I’m beginning to think that we never looked at oral care as part of our overall health movement.

So here comes the doc to the rescue! Dr. Travis Stork of The Doctors TV show (also former The Bachelor star) partnered with Crest for a Crest Pro Health Event  and help spread awareness about oral care and overall health care that perfectly tied in to Women’s Health Month. Travis StorkAs I tweeted out that I will be meeting Dr. Stork at downtown Chicago Walgreens for an interview, a couple of my Twitter friends sent in their questions. I was intrigued with one of the questions that popped up – “What does Dr. Stork thing about Oil Pulling?” I’ve never heard of  Oil Pulling before, so I had to find that out myself. After searching online a bit before the interview, I learned that Oil Pulling is an Ayurvedic practice that supposedly help strengthen your teeth and gums after swishing cold pressed sesame oils. Dr. Stork however, do not recommend this since there is no scientific testing backing up the claim in Oil Pulling. Instead Dr. Stork recommends brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and a daily 30 second oral rinse that can kill the bacteria that is causing gingivitis. Thank goodness for that, because if you ask me – I’d much rather gargle something minty fresh instead of oil.
