The fluoridation of America’s drinking water was among the great public health achievements of the twentieth century but there is a scarcity of studies from the last three decades investigating the impact of water fluoridation on dental health in the U.S. population. A recent study “Water fluoridation and dental caries in U.S. children and adolescents,” […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain As if lung cancer, emphysema and heart disease weren’t enough, there’s more bad news for cigarette smokers. Researchers at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine found that smoking also weakens the ability for pulp in teeth to fight illness and disease. In other words, smokers have fewer defense […]Continue Reading ...
On a recent Friday morning, more than 30 dentists and dental staffers gathered in a conference room to learn an arcane new skill: how to bill medical insurers. Pacing back and forth, the Florida dentist leading the two-day course advised the participants to stop thinking of themselves as tooth technicians and reposition themselves as “physicians […]Continue Reading ...
Stem cells extracted from baby teeth were able to regenerate dental pulp (shown, with fluorescent labeling) in young patients who had injured one of their adult teeth. Credit: University of Pennsylvania Sometimes kids trip and fall, and their teeth take the hit. Nearly half of children suffer some injury to a tooth during childhood. When that […]Continue Reading ...
August 21, 2018 Tooth loss is a significant health issue currently affecting millions of people worldwide. While artificial dental implants are the existing standard tooth replacement therapy, they do not exhibit many properties of natural teeth and can be associated with complications leading to implant failure. Two articles published in the September 2018 issue of […]Continue Reading ...
July 16, 2018 Vasodilating stents, “labs-on-chips” for analysis on smallest areas, 3D cell culturing systems for tissue reconstruction: microtechnology is gaining importance in the medical sector. It also opens up new potentials in the area of implantology. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), together with experts for dental implants, have now developed a nanostructured […]Continue Reading ...

Credit: Sahlgrenska Academy Inequalities in dental health are most evident in 3 to 6-year-old children, according to a thesis at Sahlgrenska Academy. Preschoolers in socioeconomically disadvantaged families had a more than four times higher risk of tooth decay compared to age cohorts with […]Continue Reading ...
A new chemical solution jointly developed by the University of Adelaide’s Dental School and Australian company Dentalife could radically reduce the chance of infection associated with root canal work. Every year millions of root canal treatments are performed globally (more than 22 million in the USA alone). The management of root canal bacteria helps to […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers Researchers used periodontal ligament (PDL)-derived stem cells to create a cell sheet, attached it to a titanium implant, and transplanted it into the mandibular bone of a dog, demonstrating the formation of a periodontal-like structure containing both cementum- and PDL-like tissue. The study, which shows the feasibility of combining […]Continue Reading ...
A University of Western Australia study has found that although the number of dentists in rural and remote areas increased in recent years, it is still not keeping apace with the growth in demand and there is still a divide between access to dental treatment in cities compared to regional areas. The researchers collected data […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Higher levels of tooth decay are seen in abused or neglected children. Although dental care is free to all children in the UK, many children are not registered with a dentist. This means in the absence of a dentist the family doctor or GP is often the first point of medical […]Continue Reading ...
August 1, 2018 Combine a diet high in sugar with poor oral hygiene habits and dental cavities, or caries, will likely result. The sugar triggers the formation of an acidic biofilm, known as plaque, on the teeth, eroding the surface. Early childhood caries is a severe form of tooth decay that affects one in every […]Continue Reading ...
University of Otago research has found that New Zealand dentists are fixing increasing numbers of unsuccessful dentist treatments due to ‘medical tourism.’ Credit: Creative Commons New Zealand dentists are increasingly having to provide remedial treatment where things have gone wrong for “dental tourists” who travel abroad for dental work. Overseas travel for dental treatment is […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Opioids are not among the most effective—or longest lasting—options available for relief from acute dental pain, a new examination of the results from more than 460 published studies has found. Ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) alone or in combination with acetaminophen are better at easing dental pain, according to […]Continue Reading ...
