Otzi the Iceman: Non-human DNA found in hip bone of 5,300-year-old mummy
International Business Times
Much of what is known about Otzi the Iceman, who lived thousands of years ago, stems from a tiny bone sample preserved in a glacier in the Otztal Alps, which allowed researchers to decode his genetic makeup. Now, scientists have further analysed the hip bone and discovered it contains non-human DNA. Researchers from the European Academy of Bozen/Bolzano and the University of Vienna have found evidence for the presence of Treponema denticola, an opportunistic pathogen involved in the development of periodontal disease.

Why do my gums bleed and should I be worried?
The Conversation
Bleeding gums are very common but that doesn't mean you should ignore them. They're usually a sign of gum disease. If treated in its early stages, periodontal disease can be easily reversed. But more advanced and severe forms of the disease can result in tooth loss, require complex long-term treatment and are associated with a higher risk of diabetes and other chronic diseases.

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.

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.

Licensing 'dental therapists' could give more Americans the care they need
The Washington Post
In 2009, 830,000 visits to emergency rooms around the country could have been prevented if the patients had seen a dentist earlier.

Maryland pushed through some reforms following Deamonte's death, but the situation across the country has not dramatically improved.
