6 Common Dental Myths and Misconceptions

There is a wealth of advice available online regarding tips for proper oral care. Unfortunately, much of it is false or misleading. New developments in healthcare happen each day, and sometimes the messages get crossed. Other dental myths have existed for years, passed down from generations before. Set the record straight with the facts. Here are 6 dental myths and misconceptions.


The Rise of Telehealth during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The global pandemic has increased the popularity of virtual appointments. This is largely due to the fact that online doctor visits, pet checkups, and routine dentist visits help in maintaining social distancing. Telehealth also helps limit exposure to the virus, and is a convenient option for those seeking care in a timely manner. Virtual doctor appointments are not a new option.


Telemedicine with autonomous vehicles

When we think of fully autonomous vehicles, an image of a futuristic world likely pops in our heads. One where all cars simply go to the destination assigned for that trip and driving is a thing of the past. With innovative technologies from companies like Tesla, self-driving cars are already on the market, able to sense objects around them as they are directed to their required location. Yet, with all the limitless possibilities, have you ever considered how telemedicine can be applied to autonomous vehicles?

Staying Safe While Protesting

With all the current injustice of the world coming to light, we are all encouraged to see the strength of our communities nationwide, to rise up and stand together for the Black Lives Matter movement. As Beverly Tatum, author of Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria, describes inaction against racism as standing on a moving walkway that represents the way of life created systematically, just moving with the rest of the group. But unless you actively move to get off the walkway, you’ll never change where you end up because there is no way to be passively antiracist.


The Rise of Teledentistry

With the large switch to telemedicine in recent times, many are familiar with the ability to access medical and/or veterinary providers, but the teledentistry industry has only just begun to solidify itself within the telehealth world. The importance of dental health can often be overlooked as individuals try to wait out dental work. However, with the many nerves and blood vessels in the mouth, a minor infection can turn into a serious health risk if left untreated. Thus, with teledentistry, patients can connect with a dental provider from their homes, making it easier than ever to receive the dental care they need.
