  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

June is National Men's Health Month

Did you know that men are more likely to suffer from oral health conditions than women? That’s because fewer men report going to the dentist regularly and are less likely to brush and floss regularly than women. According to the American Dental Association, men between the ages of 30-54 are a third more likely to have periodontal (gum) disease than women of the same age and that number rises with age. 

Is it a coincidence, then, that men have a higher rate of heart attacks and cardiovascular conditions? Given the link between periodontal disease and heart attacks, these statistics paint a bleak picture for men who do not care for their teeth and gums. While the science linking periodontal disease to heart attacks and stroke is clear, we still have a lot to learn about the actual cause and effect. What we do know is that you are more likely to have a heart attack or stroke if you suffer from periodontal disease and both are more likely to result in death.

  • In the meantime, you can control some of the risk factors of periodontal disease by taking a few simple steps:
  • Brush at least twice daily with a soft bristled brush
  • Floss at least once daily
  • Make routine exam and dental cleaning appointments twice yearly
  • Combat dry mouth with extra water and special rinses
  • Avoid smoking
  • Report any clenching or grinding to your dentist

Regular medical check ups to your medical doctor can alert you to potential heart conditions. Be sure to tell them if you have a family history of heart disease.

If you are a man, why not schedule your next preventative dental exam and professional cleaning this month? It’s a great way to take care of yourself and protect your health. For all of the women out there, we want to see you, too. Since you are more likely to go to the dentist regularly, why not remind the men in your life that now is a great time to schedule a preventative appointment.
