Put Kids’ Dental Health on the Fast Track NASCAR Star Greg Biffl e Offers Tips to Help ‘Give Kids a Smile’


When you’re a NASCAR driver like Greg


Biffl e, driver of the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, nothing makes you smile like a trip to victory lane. But for millions of children in this country, that smile is impossible. Severe tooth decay often causes children to hide their smiles, and they’re unable to eat, sleep or pay attention in class because of the pain. Children’s dental health is a major concern


when you consider that: * One third of all children in America are without dental insurance. * More than 16 million children in the U.S.


have untreated tooth decay, more than any other chronic infectious disease, including asthma, early-childhood obesity and diabetes. * Approximately 80 percent of tooth decay in this country is suffered by 25 percent of its children.


* Household economic disadvantage is the single best predictor of tooth decay in children. * 51 million school hours are lost each year to untreated cavities. That’s why Biffl e teamed up with 3M ESPE Dental, Henry Schein Cares, the American Den- tal Association (ADA) and the ADA Foundation to Give Kids a Smile and put good oral health on the fast track for young fans of NASCAR. Across the country, Biffl e is helping deliver the message to children about healthy habits like brushing, fl ossing, visiting the dentist and making smart food choices. “As a parent, I want to do everything I can to protect my daugh-

ter’s health and teach her good lifelong habits,” says Biffl e. “When you consider how much dental health impacts children’s ability to learn, self-confi dence and overall quality of life, you want to do everything you can to help them be healthy. For children in need, it is even more of a challenge, so we’re working with 3M ESPE Dental, the American Dental Association, the ADA Foundation and Henry Schein Cares to provide education, free screenings and treatments.” Biffl e shared these recommendations from the ADA for your


children:


* Brush twice a day with fl uoride toothpaste. * Floss once a day.


* Eat a balanced diet and avoid sugary snacks and drinks. Fre- quent access to sugary drinks, not the quantity, increases the likeli- hood of tooth decay by feeding bacteria that attacks tooth enamel. * Visit the dentist regularly.

* Reward children each time they exhibit good dental health, perhaps with a sticker on a calendar.


* Make dental care non-negotiable. Children know they must be


buckled in car seats. Dental health should be equally mandatory. * Set a good example by following these recommendations. Re-


search shows that children mimic parents who exhibit good dental health. Biffl e is supporting the yearlong celebration of the Give Kids A Smile program’s 10th anniversary in 2012. Fans can follow the program on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GiveKidsASmile. The yearlong education program includes a national public service an- nouncement featuring Biffl e and ongoing outreach to parents and children, community events and media.

Throughout the year, there will be more than 1,600 Give Kids A Smile events around the country providing dental services to more than 400,000 underserved children.

How to Get Relief from Excessive Underarm Sweat


For most people, sporting a sweat-drenched T-shirt at the gym is no big deal. However, wearing a sweat-stained blouse or shirt at work or in a social setting is an entirely different, and in many cases mortifying, scenario. One in fi ve adults are bothered by their underarm sweat and suffer silently, going to great lengths to conceal the unsightly effects. It is an embarrassing condition, impacting both men and women, and often negatively interfering with a person’s social and professional life. In fact, an overwhelming majority (75 percent) of sweat- bothered people have actually avoided a social situation - such as going on a date or attending a networking event - due to embarrassment from underarm sweat, according to a recent nationwide survey commissioned by Miramar Labs. But perhaps more surprising, approximately half of those surveyed (45 percent) have chosen to not pursue a certain job or career because of their condition. “People don’t realize how excessive sweat impacts your

The more nervous I am, the worse it gets,” says Katelyn Endres-Davies, a sweat sufferer liv- ing in Chicago. Most people aren’t aware of solutions beyond antiperspirants. Even medications and prescrip- tion antiperspirants provide only temporary relief and are largely ineffective. However, there is a new in-offi ce procedure that provides a lasting reduction in embarrassing underarm sweat. The miraDry procedure, cleared by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, delivers energy noninva-
