Bad teeth? Blame your genes
CNN
Remember "The Big Book of British Smiles" from "The Simpsons"? The dentist used it to scare children into proper dental hygiene. And let's be honest, it was funny! Because though British tea and good manners have an excellent international reputation, British teeth are mostly used as a punch line. But tooth decay is far from only a British problem — in fact, it's one of the most common chronic disease worldwide.

Le Sueur News-Herald
Here's a great sound bite for you: The health of your mouth may mirror your overall health. What's the link?

Restoration of a damaged dental implant due to removal of a fractured screw: Thinking outside the box
Surgical Restorative
Dental implant success has been well documented in the literature; however, failure does occur. Typically, failure can be categorized as either early or late. Early failure occurs prior to the implant integrating, with causes such as overheating during osteotomy preparation, overpreparation of the osteotomy, implant contamination during surgery, poor bone quality, lack of primary stability and macro/micro motion.

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?

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.
