St. Louis is a great city. There's a lot to smile about—except for the smiles themselves. St. Louis is the town with the worst teeth, the most dentally challenged in the land. In other words, it failed our oral exam. Since we are talking about the Show Me State, here's what Men's Health magazine found: It looked at community water fluoridation (CDC), the percentage of people who saw a dentist in the past year as well as the percentage who've had teeth extracted (CDC's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System), the percentage of households using dental floss (Mediamark Research), the money spent on oral hygiene products (Bureau of Labor Statistics), and the number of dentist offices per capita (Census Bureau).

Helium    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Trench mouth was named during the First World War between 1914 and 1918, when it was a common occurrence among infantry soldiers, who tended to get deployed in trenches. Trench mouth is actually a type of gingivitis, or inflammation of the gums, although more severe cases of trench mouth can result in ulcers on the gums or gum bleeding under pressure. Today, trench mouth is fairly rare in the west, afflicting mostly those between ages 15 and 35. It is usually treated with regular cleaning of the mouth, teeth and gums as well as administration of antibiotics, and it responds well to treatment. More
