Check up on your dentist
KYW-TV
How do you know if your dentist is the subject of a complaint? About 7,000 dental patients in Tulsa, Oklahoma were urged to be tested for hepatitis and HIV after an inspection of their dental office found unsafe, unsanitary and dangerous conditions in the office of their dentist. Despite the mind boggling number of violations of safe medical conditions, online patient reviews gave him 4 stars out of 5, noting only that he ran late to his appointments.

Wisdom teeth: Should they stay or go?
USA Today
For decades, having wisdom teeth removed was a rite of passage — one many high school graduates squeezed in before leaving for college. The thinking was that it was best to lose those mostly useless, ill-fitting teeth before they caused infections or other trouble. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often are misaligned and impacted — fully or partly stuck below the gum line — because they emerge late, at ages 17 to 25, after the jaw has stopped growing and other teeth have filled the mouth.

Absence of breastfeeding may predispose children to enamel defects
Dental Tribune
New research from Brazil has suggested that perinatal factors, such as breastfeeding, are closely associated with the development of tooth enamel defects in children. A study of more than 200 preschool children found a significantly higher prevalence of such defects among those who had not been breastfed and whose mothers were under 24 at the birth of the child.

The dangers of purchasing counterfeit dental products
DrBicuspid.com
The last few years have witnessed a growing problem in the dental industry that has long been an issue in the consumer goods sector: the manufacturing of counterfeit, imitation products. Counterfeit goods account for 5 to 9 percent of all global trade, representing $450 billion, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. More than 70 percent of counterfeit products seized by U.S. customs come from China. Counterfeiting costs manufacturers significant revenue and puts thousands of jobs at risk.

Is it time to retire the free gingival graft procedure in light of new alternative tissue grafting materials?
Surgical Restorative
The free gingival graft is a surgical procedure frequently used in periodontics to increase the amount of keratinized tissue surrounding a tooth or a dental implant. 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.

Diet soda habit as bad for teeth as meth addiction?
HealthDay News via WebMD
Heavy consumption of diet soda can damage teeth as badly as methamphetamine or crack cocaine, a new study contends. "You look at it side-to-side with 'meth mouth' or 'coke mouth,' it is startling to see the intensity and extent of damage more or less the same," said Dr. Mohamed Bassiouny, a professor of restorative dentistry at the Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia.

Narrow diameter dental implants in the esthetic zone
Surgical Restorative
Dental implant placement and restoration in the esthetic region is one of the most challenging procedures for dental clinicians. We often are faced with bone loss due periodontal disease, trauma, or failed root canal therapy, resulting in inadequate bone width and bone height. Although ideal treatment would be to perform the ridge augmentation necessary to rebuild deficient ridges, this may not always occur. We do our best to explain to patients the necessary steps to achieve great results. And we all know the feeling of having our patients' enthusiasm wane as we discuss the time and expense involved with bone grafting and gingival grafts necessary to restore these cases properly.

AAN: Don't stop warfarin for dental visits
MedPage Today
Patients taking aspirin or warfarin (Coumadin) for prevention after a stroke don't need to stop the drug for dental procedures and probably can stay on it for most other minor medical procedures, the American Academy of Neurology recommended. Prostate or hernia procedures, electromyography, and saphenous vein ablation might be candidates for continued warfarin or aspirin, according to the guidelines published in Neurology.

Texas A&M expands dental implant training
Texas A&M Health Science Center
Until now, dental residents in Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry's prosthodontic graduate program concentrated primarily on treatment planning and restorative care, leaving most of the surgical aspects of dental implants to the oral surgery and periodontic specialties. That is changing thanks to a new education standard of the Commission on Dental Accreditation set to become effective in 2014. Beginning next year, prosthodontic graduates must place implants.

Whole-health dental care: The art of asking 'Why?'
DrBicuspid.com
Dr. Lisa Knowles writes, "As doctors, we subconsciously dread the question 'Why?' We like predictability, and questions are unpredictable. We like to govern our time, and questions force us to slow down and relinquish our control over time. But the inadvertent message sent to our patients becomes obvious: We do not have time for questions. Remarkably similar to childhood, our patients stop asking questions, or never start."
