Medical News Today
A bit of pressure from a new shrinking, sponge-like gel is all it takes to turn transplanted unspecialized cells into cells that lay down minerals and begin to form teeth.

Zero Dark Cavity
The New Yorker
Soldiers, one might think, have more serious concerns than teeth. More than a century ago, the Army's first contract dental surgeon, John Sayre Marshall, remarked, "Good, or at least serviceable, teeth are very necessary as a means of maintaining the general health, and consequently the highest efficiency of the Army." But war is stressful; you forget to floss.

Good dental care elusive for those with disabilities
The StarPhoenix
Getting good dental care for children with disabilities can be difficult, but an event held at the University of Saskatchewan is hoping to play a small part in changing that. "This population has a very hard time finding good care," said Richard Andrews, a second year U of S dentistry student. Andrews and others organized Sharing Smiles Day Saturday. Special needs patients and their families played basketball, got their faces painted and did other activities with dentistry students. They also learned proper tooth brushing and other good hygiene tips.

Three clinical opportunities to increase patient satisfaction and revenue
Inside Dentistry
Recent trends in restoratives — including direct composites and CAD/CAM all-ceramics, along with in-office procedures like tooth whitening — are broadening the scope of treatments that can be performed completely within the dental practice. For dentists and their teams, these capabilities represent an opportunity to capitalize on returning consumer confidence after the overall decline in patient demand for elective treatments that occurred concurrently with the economic downturn.

Patients who have dental extractions before cardiac surgery are still at risk for poor outcomes
Medical News Today
To pull or not to pull? That is a common question when patients have the potentially dangerous combination of abscessed or infected teeth and the need for heart surgery. In such cases, problem teeth often are removed before surgery, to reduce the risk of infections including endocarditis, an infection of the inner lining of the heart that can prove deadly.

Herald-Standard
Regular dental checkups are essential to maintaining oral health. In addition to preventing dental caries and removing tartar that contributes to gum disease, dental checkups can alert patients to other potential health problems.

Does oil pulling really work?
Shape
An ancient Ayurvedic practice is getting a modern-day revival. Oil pulling, the act of swishing around oil in your mouth, is said to prevent disease, purge toxins, whiten teeth, clear up acne, cure migraines, and treat gum disease — and everywhere you turn, people are jumping on the bandwagon. Many in the healthy living community — including Deepak Chopra — swear by it, though the science behind it is inconclusive at best.

Chew on this: Eight foods for healthy teeth
LiveScience
Regular brushing and flossing help keep teeth healthy by getting rid of sugars and food particles that team up with bacteria to form plaque. Plaque produces acid that damages tooth enamel, causes cavities and sets the stage for periodontal, or gum, disease. Now, a growing body of research is finding that certain foods may be good for teeth, too. Just as so-called "functional foods" may keep your heart healthy, for instance, others may promote oral health, according to Christine D. Wu, a pediatric dentistry researcher at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
