Aging process speeded by chronic inflammation
Guardian Liberty Voice
Healthspan: the years of life spent relatively free of disability and serious illness. A study from the Yale School of Medicine in Cell Metabolism shows that chronic inflammation can speed the aging process and significantly reduce healthspan. Chronic inflammation is different from the swelling that occurs with a specific injury, such as a sprained ankle. Acute inflammation can typically be resolved with ice and time. Chronic inflammation is a slowly advancing disturbance that cannot be felt or tested for.

UCLA via ScienceDaily
A lingering recession, the elimination of Medicaid dental reimbursements and a glut of established dentists in wealthier, populated areas may explain why more new dentists are practicing outside California, according to a new policy brief from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. "Good access to dental care depends on having a robust supply of new dentists in California," said Nadereh Pourat, director of research at the center and lead author of the study.

Biomimetic technology: Putting the tooth fairy out of business
Surgical Restorative
As a dental practitioner, how many times has a patient said to you during the course of fabricating a treatment plan, "Well, if this were your mouth and your tooth, what would you do?" It's a rational question that may not get proper consideration, especially when a decision is being made whether to extract a tooth and place an implant versus trying to regenerate the periodontium.

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.

Study: Shorter waiting time between dental procedures is adequate
Surgical Restorative
Two surgeries are frequently required for tooth replacement with dental implants; however, clinicians must allow for adequate healing time between the procedures. Most patients want to minimize the overall recovery time and thus desire the surgeries be done close together. A study in the Journal of Oral Implantology looks specifically at healing times between the two dental procedures involving tooth replacement.
