Bruce Springsteen Concert Provides A New Perspective On Dentistry
Last week I had the pleasure of attending a couple of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Concerts. On one evening I took my daughter. I am a Bruce Springsteen fan and have seen over a hundred concerts going back to the 1970's, My daughter only has seen a few Springsteen concerts.So after the show I get a call from Fred Joyal of 1-800 Dentist who happened to be sitting on the other end of the aisle. We both were discussing the fact that the show we had just seen was amazing. My daughter just thought it was OK. So why the discrepancy? It was all about the prespective. Seeing rarely played songs was great for me bu...

The 80th birthday party for Josephine van Es marked two milestones, only one of which was apparent at the time.Held in November 2004 at her daughter's house in Rehoboth Beach, Del., the event was a celebration of her longevity, good health and loving family. It also marked one of the last times van Es can remember feeling well and not beset by the pain that developed soon afterward and has left the inside of her mouth feeling perpetually scalded and with a constant metallic taste."It's awful," said van Es, 87, who says the burning is worse than the taste, which she likens to "sucking on a penny."Her daughter Karen van Es s...

Occlusal adjustment associated with periodontal therapy - A systematic review
ConclusionsAlthough the selected studies suggest an association between occlusal adjustment and an improvement in periodontal parameters, their methodological issues (explored in this review) suggest the need for new trials of a higher quality. There is insufficient evidence at present to presume that occlusal adjustment is necessary to reduce the progression of periodontal disease.Clinical significance: Although it is still not possible to determine the role of occlusal adjustment in periodontal treatment, adverse effects have not been related to occlusal adjustment. This means that the decision made by clinicians whether...

Effects of Xylitol Mouthrinse on Streptococcus mutans
Conclusions: Significant reductions in the scores of S. mutans were found after the four week use of 20% xylitol mouthrinse. The bacteriostatic effect of xylitol mouthrinse on S. mutans may be comparable to other xylitol products. Further studies are needed to confirm both the short and long term effects of xylitol mouthrinse.Watch this Take Five With Marty video with Shirley Gutkowski RDH on the benefits of Xylitol (Source: Dental Technology Blog)

New Discovery Related To Gum Disease

The finding not only has implications in preventing periodontal disease, a chronic inflammatory disease that causes tooth loss, but also may have relevance to other chronic inflammatory diseases.

For a long time, I have been saying that something is different with people’s oral health. When I began working as a dental hygienist back in the early seventies, we did not wear gloves and there was very little bleeding during a prophylaxis. If my patients had bleeding gums back in the seventies like they do now, I never would have put my fingers into their mouth. Today, it is common to see five year old patients with heavy plaque and bleeding. When I listened to your tal...

The Innovation Myth And A Challenge To Pharma
Last month, the BMJ published a controversial paper that maintained that the “widely touted innovation crisis in pharmaceuticals is a myth.” Rather, the authors contended that the “real innovation crisis” can be traced to R&D that produces “mostly minor variations” on existing drugs and incentives that reward drugmakers for such efforts. Meanwhile, they charged that many of the newer drugs caused an “epidemic” of serious side effects that added to healthcare costs. The analysis actually continued a long-running debate over the pharma pipeline and its price tag, especiall...

SoundBite Dental Hearing System Now an Option in Europe
Sonitus Medical has announced the European launch of its SoundBite hearing system following early last year’s approvals in the U.S. and E.U. The system consists of a microphone placed behind the ear and a unit that grips to the teeth in the back of the mouth.Very much like a cochlear implant system, the microphone transmits signals to the dental orthosis that in turn vibrates the teeth and scalp to stimulate the cochlea. Unlike a cochlear implant, the SoundBite doesn’t require holes to be drilled into the scalp, nor even any dental work done.Read More (Source: Medgadget)

This article presents a serious complication of a lingual flexible spiral wire retainer. Four years after the orthodontic treatment, a 20-year-old man sought treatment for a broken flexible spiral wire retainer. The clinical examination showed about 35° of buccal root torque of that tooth. A cone-beam computed tomography image showed that the root and the apex of the tooth were almost completely out of the bone on its buccal side. Surprisingly, the tooth's vitality was preserved. The tooth was moved back, nearly to its original position; clinically, only a gingival recession remained. Orthodontists and dentists should be ...

A great doctor’s visit
Nat had an appointment with his psychopharmocologist, Dr. M, this afternoon. I met Nat there with John, our beloved House Manager. I wanted Dr. M and John to meet, both so that John could add his observations to the conversation, and also because he needs to be familiar with all of Nat’s professionals. For this particular visit, I wanted the discussion to be whether we should begin decreasing Nat’s Risperadone even further. He has always been on a very low dosage, and even lower since the winter, and he is doing spectacularly well since he moved into his adulthood situations. (Knock wood.) Since graduating, Nat...

Guest Post: decAY1c.
Aside from his affinity for glucose tabs and wearing mustaches mounted on jaunty little sticks, Christopher Angell is also a former blogger. He claims to have zero interest in reviving his old blog, but he was wiling to guest blog on SUM about the perils of dental apathy and his newly-minted term: decAY1c.* * *Last week, for the first time in far longer than intended, I spent a few hours in the dentist's chair. It was my first dental treatment in years, following an exam/consultation 10 days prior to establish what I was working with, mouth-wise. Some highlights of that visit...
