Researchers find byproducts of bacteria-causing gum disease incite oral cancer growth
Medical Xpress
Researchers from Case Western Reserve University have discovered how byproducts in the form of small fatty acids from two bacteria prevalent in gum disease incite the growth of deadly Kaposi's sarcoma-related lesions and tumors in the mouth. The discovery could lead to early saliva testing for the bacteria, which, if found, could be treated and monitored for signs of cancer and before it develops into a malignancy, researchers say.

Three leadership lessons for every dentist
McKenzie Managment via DentistryIQ
When you entered your first "real" dental practice, either as an associate or an owner, it's likely one thing became abundantly clear early on: along with that DDS degree, you unwittingly earned a full ride in the school of hard knocks, and oh what a ride it is. With little warning and even less preparation, many dentists are tossed into leadership roles overnight. It's a job requirement that can leave new and even experienced dentists bewildered. They quickly learn that teams don't lead themselves, and there's a lot more to being "in charge" than most people imagine.

'Microbial Pompeii' found on 1,000-year-old teeth from Germany
NBC News
A "microbial Pompeii" has been found on the teeth of 1,000-year-old human skeletons. Just as volcanic ash entombed the citizens of the ancient Roman city, dental plaque preserved bacteria and food particles on the teeth from a medieval cemetery in Germany. "One thing that is clear about the population we studied is that they didn't brush their teeth very often, if at all," said study leader Christina Warinner, an anthropologist at the University of Zurich in Switzerland and the University of Oklahoma in Norman. The study was published in Nature Genetics.

Healthy gums and teeth key to overall health
New Pittsburgh Courier
What is oral health? Why is it so important? Oral health includes having healthy teeth, but it's also much more. It involves healthy gums and being free from pain, diseases or defects. It means being able to eat, speak and show emotion. Problems in other parts of the body can often be discovered in and can be associated with the mouth. Poor nutrition, infections, diseases and some cancers can be detected in saliva and in other oral examinations. And while oral health has gotten a lot more attention in the past few decades, it's an area where there are significant health disparities.
