President and Michelle Obama These are my links for January 18th through January 22nd: The Inaugural: Symbols Over Substance – The liberals and the conservatives in my twitter feed seemed to be listening to different speeches.

Comparison of caries detection methods using varying numbers of intra-oral digital photographs with visual examination for epidemiology in children
ConclusionsThe photographic assessment method, particularly assessment of 8 intra-oral digital photographs is comparable to the visual examination method in the primary dentition. With the additional benefits of archiving, remote scoring, allowing multiple scorers to score images and enabling longitudinal analysis, the photographic assessment method may be used as an alternative caries detection method in the primary dentition in situations where the visual examination method may not be applicable such as when examiner blinding is required and in practice based randomised controlled trials (RCTs).

"Slap on the Wrist" for a "Too Big to Fail" Hospital - Judge Rejects WakeMed Settlement
Maybe we are reaching an inflection point in how misbehavior by big health care organizations is handled in the US legal system. We have frequently discussed the march of legal settlements made by big health care organizations.  Many of these settlements indicated severely bad behavior, often behavior that seemed overtly dishonest, sometimes criminal, and had the potential to harm patients.  Yet most of these settlements involved only fines, and sometimes written agreements that pledge the organization will do better in the future, often in the form of deferred prosecution or corporate integrity agreements.&...

The Barkers and The Colored Balloons
Today, while getting a root canal, I had a lot of time to think. A friend had told me to listen to music while it was going on, and so I brought my tunes along. I knew that would be risky because I am susceptible to music mush, where I hear a song and it takes me right back to a memory, kneading my heart like bread dough. But I have never been one to avoid certain emotional swamps, and so I went, because it would be better than watching bits of my tooth dust fly out of my mouth. I say I am an emotion explorer, but that is actually not always true. Sometimes I avoid like crazy, so much so that I turn to stupid destructive b...

Implant and Prosthodontic Survival Rates with Implant Fixed Complete Dental Prostheses in the Edentulous Mandible after at Least 5 Years: A Systematic Review.
ConclusionTreatment with mandibular IFCDPs yields high implant and prosthodontic survival rates (more than 96% after 10 years). Rough surface implants exhibited cumulative survival rates similar to the smooth surface ones (p  > .05) in the edentulous mandible. The number of supporting implants and the antero-posterior implant distribution had no influence (p  > .05) on the implant survival rate. The prosthetic design and veneering material, the retention type, and the loading protocol (delayed, early, and immediate) had no influence (p > .05) on the prosthodontic survival rates.

Anyone who says the patient communities on the web don't have a positive influence on health outcomes is out of their mind; the only reason I went to the dentist yesterday is because of Chris Angell's guest post.  His admission of being slack when it came to the dental department has been in my head for months, and it was his post that made me finally call my dentist.Because I did NOT want to fall victim to decAY1c ... aka my diabetes eating my teeth beyond recognition.So when December rolled around, and I knew that my new insurance included dental and vision, I set up a bunch of necessary appointments in the new year...

Study finds excellent fit of restorations fabricated by e4d chairside system
 Richardson, TX, January 2, 2013 – A recent study by faculty and students at the Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine found clinically acceptable marginal fits — regardless of the quality of the preparation  — with restorations fabricated with the E4D System. There was a statistically significant correlation between the marginal fit and the quality of the preparation, however. Walter Renne, DMD, et.al, reported on the study, which investigated the impact of deviations from the ideal preparation, in The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry (November 2012)*. The investigators used prepar...

Obamacare's effect on your dental practice.
From the Academy of General Denistry Medical Device Tax Regulations On Dec. 5, 2012, the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued final regulations  on a new 2.3 percent medical device excise tax. Created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010, the tax went into effect on Jan. 1, 2013. The IRS will tax manufacturers on the sales of certain devices , including dental cement and impression material. According to the Organized Dentistry Coalition, this tax will increase the cost of dental care in the U.S. by more than $160 million per year. The Academy...

Doctors Prescribe, Pharmacists Dispense, Patients Suffer
Spotted in LKS’ blog by Product Of The System Real Life Scenario Madam Ong is a 52-year-old lady with a twelve-year-history of hypertension and diabetes. She complained of generalised lethargy, lower limb weakness, swelling and pain. She brought along her cocktail of medications for my scrutiny. Her regular medications included the oral antidiabetics metformin and glicazide and the antihypertensives amlodipine and irbesatan. Madam Ong also had a few episodes of joint pains three months ago for which she had seen two other different doctors. The first doctor suspected rheumatoid arthritis and started her on a short co...

More on the Alignment of Hospital Physicians with Hospital Executives
I posted as note yesterday about the potential schism between hospital physicians and executives with the former more focused on the quality of patient care and the latter more on the financial side of the equation (see: Physicians Cautioned about Divided Loyalty between Patients and Hospitals). Pathologist John Spinosa responded to my note that was copied to Facebook by suggesting that the consideration of agency theory might be useful in this discussion. Here's a brief definition of this term from the Wikipedia: In political science and economics, the principal–agent problem or agency dilemma conc...

Gingivitis Bacteria Manipulate Your Immune System
New research published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology suggests gingivitis bacteria manipulate your immune system so they can thrive longer in your gums. The researchers say Porphyromonas gingivalis causes excess IL-10 production, which inhibits the immune cells interferon gamma. The scientists say the findings imply that for treatment to be successful, it must be started as early as possible. Jannet Katz, D.D.S., Ph.D., a researcher involved in the work from the Department of Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, said in a release, "Since greater than 50 percent of the U.S. population over ...

Accidents Happen-Woman ends up with part of a dentist's drill in her LUNG after swallowing it during surgery
Dentists need to be constantly be aware of the danger of a patient aspirating something during a dental procedure. The standard of care here was followed and the patient did not swallow the drill head it was aspirated. Never take a chance send the patient to the ER or at the minimum and chest x-ray is in order.Read the story by clicking here. (Source: Dental Technology Blog)

The Morning Flap: January 3, 2013
These are my links for January 2nd through January 3rd: Does Eric Cantor’s no vote on the fiscal cliff bill spell trouble for John Boehner? – It’s rare for the top two members of the House leadership to split on an important vote. Bob Michel, the hapless leader of the House Republicans during a long period in the minority, and Newt Gingrich voted differently on the 1990 “read my lips” tax increase. They split again over the 1994 assault weapons ban.Even less common is a House speaker and majority leader going their separate ways on big-ticket legislation. The last major example is when the De...

The joys of Goldenhar
According to the latest data (collected by me today) Brooklyn has 24 teeth, which is probably normal, she is now nine years old. Gage on the other hand has a total of 19. There are a couple of more that will likely come through but at this point I don't see past 21 teeth in his near future and the ones he does have, aren't actually full healthy teeth. They are called pegs. Despite his wishes to be able to go to the dentist and just walk out with a cleaning, that simply doesn't happen for him. There's always talks of other procedures, other appointments, other doctors, and future surgeries. This is all a direct result of h...
