WHAT YOUR PATIENTS ARE READING

Cheesy grins may protect teeth from cavities
CBS News
Here's one more reason to keep cheese lovers smiling: Cheese may help keep a smile healthy.

The study was published in the May/June 2013 issue of General Dentistry.

What your smile says about your health
Refinery29
You brush your teeth, do a quick rinse with mouthwash, and floss every day. So, your teeth and your mouth are in tip-top shape, right? Well, hopefully if you were lucky enough to be born with the anti-cavity and never-a-root-canal genetic jackpot. But the truth is, doing what you can to ward off cavities and have a white smile is not (or should not be) your only focus.

Is probing without CAL meaningful?
RDH
Lynne Slim writes, "Efficiency and reliability in periodontal assessment are too important today to be ignored, and I was pondering this important issue recently while commuting to work. While driving, I was trying to peel a hard-boiled egg and a navel orange with one hand. Isn't that similar to what many of us have to endure in the hygiene operatory when we have no assistance with a periodontal exam? Sometimes I feel like I'm juggling three balls in the air while talking to a patient at the same time."

2 California cities consider fluoridation
The Sacramento Bee
For Don Saylor, it's just common sense: Adding fluoride to drinking water in Davis and Woodland would improve dental health for 130,000 people, particularly low-income residents who can't afford regular health visits. "This is a social justice as well as a public health issue," said Saylor, a Yolo County supervisor. "It's well past time to address this." But a fight is brewing, particularly in Davis, where opponents say fluoridation amounts to a widespread medication of residents that harms people and the environment.
