DenTek Oral Care, Inc. develops and markets oral care products in retail stores around the world. It is a privately held company, founded in 1984 and owned by CEO/CIO John Jansheski.[1] The company originated when Mark Jansheski invented an at-home tarter removal device, known to many as the dental pick[2] In 1990 John bought out by Mark Jansheski's interest in the company and moved it to Petaluma, CA and by 2000 had annual sales over $10 million.[3] DenTek moved to Maryville, Tennessee in 2001. DenTek is a leader in US retail sales of manual dental tools and accessories.[4] Over 40 products are currently in production.[1] DenTek supports the ADA's Give Kids a Smile program.[5] In 2007, DenTek established the DOC award to further hygienists education.[6] In 2002, DenTek formed subsidiaries in Mexico, South America and Europe.

Sugars are commonly associated with dental cavities. Other carbohydrates, especially cooked starches, e.g. crisps/potato chips, may also damage teeth, although to a lesser degree since starch has to be converted by enzymes in saliva first.

Sucrose (table sugar) is most commonly associated with cavities. The amount of sugar consumed at any one time is less important than how often food and drinks that contain sugar are consumed. The more frequently sugars are consumed, the greater the time during which the tooth is exposed to low pH levels, at which point demineralisation occurs (below 5.5 for most people). It is important therefore to try to encourage infrequent consumption of food and drinks containing sugar so that teeth have a chance to be repaired by remineralisation and fluoride. Limiting sugar-containing foods and drinks to meal times is one way to reduce the incidence of cavities. Sugars from fruit and fruit juices, e.g., glucose, fructose, and maltose seem equally likely to cause cavities.[citation needed]

Acids contained in fruit juice, vinegar and soft drinks lower the pH level of the oral cavity which causes the enamel to demineralize. Drinking drinks such as orange juice or cola throughout the day raises the risk of dental cavities tremendously.

Another factor which affects the risk of developing cavities is the stickiness of foods. Some foods or sweets may stick to the teeth and so reduce the pH in the mouth for an extended time, particularly if they are sugary. It is important that teeth be cleaned at least twice a day, preferably with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, to remove any food sticking to the teeth. Regular brushing and the use of dental floss also removes the dental plaque coating the tooth surface.

Chewing gum assists oral irrigation between and around the teeth, cleaning and removing particles, but for teeth in poor condition it may damage or remove loose fillings as well.

In Quebec, especially Montreal, getting dentures at one time was considered a cool thing to do. Many Montrealers had bad death or even when their teeth were not that bad, still wanted to get their teeth pulled out. They could go to just about any dentist and get it done.

In the 1970's the emphasis on better oral hygiene, and the fact dentists no longer pulled teeth simply on the request of the patient may have started the slow down in toothless Montrealers.

According to Statistics Canada the number of Canadians in general who no longer have their own teeth has gone down in recent years. The results of the Oral Health component of the Canada Health Measures Survey, report that 6.6 percent of Canadians between the ages of 20 - 79 are "edentulous"(toothless).

Dr. Don Friedlander, the president of the Canadian Dental Association, says the decline is due to better oral hygiene awareness and practices and better fluoridation in our water supply.

Friedlander explains that is no artificial device is better than the real thing. They cannot fit better than real teeth or feel as natural and as comfortable. Dentures cover the taste buds on the roof of the mouth meaning that denture wearers do not have the ability to taste their food as well as non-denture wearers. Denture wearers can also end up with sores from removing their dentures especially when they eat. Some denture wearers are only able to eat softer foods, and biting into an apple can be impossible to do. Wearing dentures can even affect the enjoyment of kissing.

Seniors with denture problems may lose their interest in eating resulting in weight losses that could seriously affect their general health.

When teeth are missing in the mouth the bones in the mouth disappear, the face becomes hollower in appearance and there is a higher risk for jaw injuries especially in women.

Nevertheless, Quebec continues to have the highest rate of toothless people in Canada. Why this is happening is dependant on several factors such as less access to fluoridated water and the higher smoking rate in Quebec.
