Anti-arthritics can exacerbate other inflammatory diseases like periodontitis
Medical News Today
Inflammatory diseases can occur simultaneously in distinct sites in the same patient, complicating treatment because a medication effective for one disorder may exacerbate the other. One such example is the anti-arthritic medication dexamethasone, which alleviates joint disease but can worsen periodontal bone disease.

Medical News Today
Chronic oral infection with the periodontal disease pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis not only causes local inflammation of the gums leading to tooth loss but also is associated with an increased risk of atherosclerosis.

Peri-implantitis: The 'time bomb' in dental implants
The Telegraph
Cathy Gunnell was thrilled when she had dental implants fitted at the age of 52. Since childhood, she'd endured crooked teeth, gum disease and abscesses, one of which forced her to have a tooth removed. So when a local London clinic charged her £13,000 ($22,211) to replace four diseased teeth with gleaming white porcelain ones, fixed in place with metal pegs, she was more than happy to pay.

How good oral hygiene can protect your heart
The Huffington Post
As with many scientific and medical breakthroughs, the discovery of the link between gum and cardiovascular diseases started off rather unexpectedly. Back in 1989, a group in Finland wanted to find out if heart disease could be linked to other chronic diseases. They did the usual blood analysis to detect heart problems and also conducted other medical examinations not unlike what a family doctor might do. They expected something but never imagined they would find a link between the inevitably fatal problems with a rather common condition many of us have: gum disease.

Tooth protein offers promise for bone regeneration
Medical News Today
Patients suffering from osteoporosis or bone fractures might benefit from a new discovery of a protein that plays an important role in bone regeneration made by bioengineers at Queen Mary University of London. Normally found in the formation of enamel, which is an important component of teeth, the scientists discovered that a partial segment of the protein statherin can be used to signal bone growth.

Study: Challenges in long-term oral care in patients with intellectual disabilities
Dental Tribune
Patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities have special dental needs. Yet, only limited data about the results of dental treatment is available for this group. Now, researchers have found that although cavity rates decreased among patients who received regular comprehensive dental care, significant oral health problems remained, even among patients under routine maintenance.

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.

Dental Tribune
The findings of a new study indicate that, in addition to treating periodontal disease, periodontal therapy could have a considerable systemic impact.

A growth strategy for gaining 1,000 new patients
Dental Economics
Right in your town, maybe right down the street, a practice is ready to change hands. The patients care about their dental health, and the doctor, young or old, has reason to sell. The practice will sell to a young competitor, or you could be the owner, with 1,000 new patients coming to see you within the year.
