Dr. K: Mouthwash isn't necessary if you brush and floss
The Daily Reflector
Q: I brush and floss regularly. Do I need to use mouthwash too?
A: Judging from the ads, you need mouthwash to prevent plaque (the yellowish film of bacteria that attaches to your teeth and leads to cavities) and gingivitis (inflammation of the gums). But mouthwash actually plays a fairly minor role in the prevention of plaque and gum disease. Brushing and flossing are much more important.

Fluoride-treated synthetic material enables dental bone regeneration
American Dental Association
A fluoride solution applied to bio-resorbable synthetic hydroxyapatite granules — a bone-supplement material — promotes bone regeneration, say findings of a study reported in the April issue of Journal of Oral Implantology. The study's authors conclude that application of the fluoride solution to resorbable HA granules spurs a process leading to bone cell adhesion, proliferation and differentiation, thereby enabling osteogenesis.

Keratinized tissue plays a major role (around teeth and dental implants), helping to maintain and facilitate oral hygiene. This surgical technique was introduced almost 50 years ago in 1966.

Tooth and nail: Fluoride fight cracks Portland's Left
The Wall Street Journal
In the 1950s, after health authorities began fluoridating U.S. water supplies, they faced opposition from groups like the John Birch Society, which called it "an unconstitutional mass medication of the public." Sixty years later, the fight over fluoridation has erupted in Portland, Ore., where the battle has drawn in the city's craft-beer brewers, organic-food purveyors and environmentalists. Even some of the city's famed indie-rock musicians are taking sides.

The traditional brainstorming philosophy that it is better if more ideas can be generated than what "is needed." Something will surely work when we produce volumes of ideas. Yet, some argue that there are, indeed, some bad ideas.
