Non-surgical gum disease treatment reduces thickness of wall of arteries
The Medical News
A simple non-surgical gum disease treatment markedly reduces the thickness of the wall of the arteries, a risk factor for heart disease, according to a first of its kind study among Aboriginal Australians. The study findings may be of particular importance to Aboriginal Australians, who in general have poorer oral health and higher rates of cardiovascular disease. Published in the latest issue of Hypertension, the study reports a significant decline in thickening of the wall of the carotid artery a year after a single session of gum treatment.

New study: Intraoral scanners accelerate work flow
Dental Tribune
Digital technology is increasingly determining work in everyday dental practice. Intraoral scanners, for example, provide new treatment options for the patient and are expected to accelerate the prosthetic work flow. However, little is known about the actual time required to make digital impressions. Now, a new study has confirmed that computer-aided impression making is more time efficient than conventional methods.

Development of an in vitro periodontal biofilm model for assessing anti-microbial and host modulatory effects of bioactive molecules
7thSpace
Inflammation within the oral cavity occurs due to dysregulation between microbial biofilms and the host response. Understanding how different oral hygiene products influence inflammatory properties is important for the development of new products. Therefore, creation of a robust host-pathogen biofilm platform capable of evaluating novel oral healthcare compounds is an attractive option. We therefore devised a multispecies biofilm co-culture model to evaluate the naturally derived polyphenol resveratrol and gold standard chlorhexidine with respect to anti-biofilm and anti-inflammatory properties.

"We were very surprised at the magnitude of the results," Dr. Marjorie Jeffcoat told Reuters. She led the study at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia.

New insight into oral microbiome offered by computational technique
Medical News Today
Scientists have applied a new technique to comprehensively analyze the human oral microbiome — providing greater knowledge of the diversity of the bacteria in the mouth. For the first time, scientists can provide high-resolution bacterial classification at the subspecies level. This work will enable researchers to more closely examine the role of bacterial communities in health and disease.

Dr. Anthony Youn: You don't want a jack-of-all-trades surgeon
CNN
I once worked with a plastic surgeon, let's call him Dr. Saul, who performed cleft lip and palate repairs, face-lifts, breast reconstruction after mastectomy, and even complex repairs of tendons in the hands and fingers. His practice wasn't very busy, so he performed some of these procedures only once every few months. While the breadth of Saul's practice was impressive, I couldn't get over the question: How many different types of procedures can you trust one doctor to perform?

Most of us were taught in hygiene school that, once the bone and gum are gone, they are gone forever. However amelogenin proteins have been used in regenerative periodontics for over 15 years to regrow hard and soft tissue, reversing recession naturally.
