​Mayweather-Pacquiao Mouthguard Trivia:

Monday, May 04, 2015

In the Asian Journal's commemorative issue, "The Fight of the Century: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather," they could find an exclusive interview with the Filipino dentist who'd made Pacquiao a special mouth guard in the red, white, blue and yellow of the Philippine flag.

Mr. Mayweather’s “style in the ring translates very directly to his personal apparel style,” Dr. Gause said. “He’s a perfectionist, with an obsessive attention to detail.”

For the fight this weekend, Mr. Mayweather commissioned 10 mouth guards for $25,000, including one with a $100 bill baked in and one with gold foil — as well as some “more subtle” pairs. (They’re clear.) Each takes six to eight hours to make.

“It’s about style but also sports psychology, which is a huge part of athletic performance,” said Dr. Gause, whose mouth guard company, Iceberg Guards, is being introduced (to coincide with the fight) with a limited-edition TMT branded and “sanctioned” guard (although Dr. Gause says traditional dentistry takes up 98 percent of his time). As the dentist said: “Whatever inspires you makes you perform: your girlfriend’s name, bling.”

Neither Dr. Gause nor Mr. Day knows which of their pieces Mr. Mayweather will wear on Saturday, but they have some ideas.

“I’d pay a lot of attention to the clear ones,” Dr. Gause said.

Mr. Day said: “The guys think he’s going for the white, gold and red ones.’’ The look is “very royal.”

​About Three Million Teeth Expected To Be Knocked Out

Friday, March 13, 2015

About Three Million Teeth Expected To Be Knocked Out During Sporting Events Annually.

In his column for the Modesto (CA) Bee (3/13), Dr. Michael E. Cadra writes that National Facial Protection Month comes in April, but adds that he has already seen “several dental and facial injuries this month due to baseball” and the unseasonably dry, warm weather. Dr. Cadra writes that the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation forecast last year that some 3 million teeth would be knocked out as the result of youth sporting events. More concerning is an American Association of Orthodontists survey that found that 67 percent of parents said their children do not wear mouth guards during sporting activities, even though the NYSSF reports that “athletes who do not wear mouth guards are 60 times more likely to damage their teeth.” Dr. Cadra goes on to advise parents insist their children wear proper safety equipment while playing sports.

​Ebola virus information given to the American Dental Association (ADA)

Friday, October 03, 2014

Ebola virus information given to the American Dental Association (ADA) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). (FYI Dr Bobak and his staff meet or exceed all infection control requirements and guidelines)

"The ADA contacted the Centers for Disease Control in early September about the Ebola issue, and the CDC's guidance to dental professionals remains the same now as then:

CDC works with partners at ports of entry into the United States to help prevent infectious diseases, like Ebola, from being introduced and spread in the United States.

A person infected with Ebola is not contagious until symptoms appear. Signs and symptoms of Ebola include fever (greater than 38.6°C or 101.5°F) and severe headache, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain or unexplained bleeding or bruising.

The virus is spread through direct contact [CDC emphasis] (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with blood and body fluids (urine, feces, saliva, vomit and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola, or with objects (like needles) that have been contaminated with the virus. Ebola is not spread through the air or by water or, in general, by food.

Dental providers should continue to follow standard infection control procedures.
