Measuring mercury: common test may overestimate exposure from dental amalgam fillings
ANN ARBOR—A common test used to determine mercury exposure from dental amalgam fillings may significantly overestimate the amount of the toxic metal released from fillings, according to University of Michigan researchers. Scientists agree that dental amalgam fillings slowly release mercury vapor into the mouth. But both the amount of mercury released and the question of whether this exposure presents a significant health risk remain controversial. Public health studies often make the assumption that mercury in urine (which is composed mostly of inorganic mercury) can be used to estimate exposure to mercury vapor from ama...

What Do Your Kidneys Have To Do With Finding Nemo?
Finding Nemo is one of my favorite Disney-Pixar cartoons. Not only does it have a cute story line, but it’s full of medical themes – consider the movie’s namesake with a congenitally deformed fin (Nemo), the shark with addiction problems (Bruce), and the blue tang fish with memory impairment (Dory). Even Nemo’s captor turns out to be a dentist! But when I think about the scene where the fish attempt escape from the dentist’s tank by plugging up the filter system to get him to remove them for cleaning, I always think about kidneys. Yep, you heard me right. Kidneys. Kidneys are fairly under appr...

IDS Day 4 and 5 The Rest of the Story
Day Four of the 2013 International Dental Show (IDS):I came across some interesting products in the Planmeca booth, including a cone-beam CT scanner that is a medical unit that can also be used in dentistry. It is a fully adjustable sit-down unit that carries a pretty hefty price tag: 250,000 euros. I liked the cool green pod!Planmeca is also releasing its own combination intraoral scanner and software and milling machines. No word on when this unit will be available in the U.S., but it does use open architecture so you can build your way up from a chairside scanner to in-office milling. The scanner seemed a little large b...

Dear Swami, What advice do you have regarding getting braces put on?   My son is almost 13, has minimal language and will not understand why his teeth will have these “things” on them. He doesn’t have sufficient receptive language for him to understand. In addition, how can we teach him to keep his mouth open long enough for braces to be applied to his teeth?  And finally, the braces will hurt when first put in. We won’t know where exactly it hurts in order to put on the wax the orthodontists give the children to coat their mouth when there is a problem. My son will not be able to exactly pinpoint...

I Am Who I Should Have Thought I Would Be
In high school I brought Trident to chew after lunch—it was that fourth dentist that sold me over the then-competitor Carefree. My friends leveraged this knowledge and preyed on my gum. I responded by bringing only one piece every day, leading to their disappointment and stereotype jokes. My decision had nothing to do with money since my dad bought (and continues to buy) me an unending supply. It was a matter of efficiency. I should have known then the type of grown-up I would become… I bought a 12-quart pot so I can boil 40 pieces of chicken at once. Boiled chicken is dry and tasteless, but it is worth the time saved...

Reason for hope on pediatric CT utilization
This study is limited to hospitalized patients, which could easily explain why the results contradict other published data, but I’m glad to see a decrease in any population. Also a lot of the attention on radiation exposure has come since 2010 so perhaps we will see that show up in the next analysis. In recent years I’ve had a couple of experiences at Boston Children’s Hospital where I kind of expected they would do a CT, based on the situation and from what I’d read about the tendency to use that modality. But the docs I met were very hesitant to use CT, treating it as more of a last resort. They w...

MS Inc.: The Myth About Multiple Sclerosis and Mercury
Mention of one of the original scams in a recent comment brought the topic, flooding with unexpected emotion, to me this week. I’ve touched on this subject before under the heading of MS Quackery and it’s time it was put to bed. Mercury poisoning was first “linked” to multiple sclerosis in the surrounds of Minamata Bay, Japan in the 1950’s. To be fair, looking at the symptoms of this massive episode which now takes on the name of the bay – Minamata Disease, you can see why one might think of MS: Symptoms include ataxia, numbness in the hands and feet, general muscle weakness, narrowing of the field of vision ...

The Psychology of Flossing
Why is it so tough to remember to floss? I rarely run into patients who can’t remember to brush their teeth twice a day, but even the most conscientious among us come to their hygiene appointment anxious and awaiting the hygienist’s lecture about flossing. Flossing can be icky and awkward — no one likes feeling like they’re shoving their entire fist into their mouth. But the reason why we don’t make flossing a habit is a bit more complicated and has its roots in psychology. During the early 1900s, right around World War I, dental hygiene was so bad, it was said to be a national security risk. Why? People wer...
