Oral symptoms can be indicator of serious health condition
Missoulian
Good oral health, regardless of age, is integral to overall good health. This important component of heath is often an overlooked aspect of a baby boomer's general health. Good oral health, including regular dental care, must be a lifetime commitment. Unfortunately, for many adults, oral health care is a luxury. Daily oral hygiene (brushing, flossing and denture care), access to oral health services and oral health education are all key factors that can improve the oral health of the baby boomer generation.

Health.com via The Huffington Post
In a study of almost 35,000 male health professionals ages 40 to 75, participants who consumed the highest amounts of whole grain were 23 percent less likely to get gum disease than those who stayed away from whole grains. This was true even after taking into account other factors like smoking, age and body size. Because gum disease is linked to inflammation and other health conditions like heart disease, this is about more than just a pretty smile.

Does oil pulling work?
CNN
Starting the day off at the beach with your skin smelling of tropical-scented sunscreen can be one of life's greatest pleasures. Smelling coconut oil as you swish it around in your mouth before work — well, that's another story. Oil pulling, or placing oil in the mouth to kill harmful bacteria, seems to have caught on recently. It's a controversial practice that takes dedication and time, though fortunately not the 10 or 20 minutes of marathon swishing some sources suggest.

What dentists can tell about your health just by looking in your mouth — Featuring an interview with AAP President Dr. Stuart J. Froum
Business Insider
When dentists poke around inside your mouth while simultaneously asking you questions about how often you floss, it's not just cavities they are looking for — and there's a lot more than tooth decay that they can see. The health of your mouth, particularly your gums, has major implications for your general health.

Gum disease linked to preterm labor
IOL
Gum disease would seem to have little to do with going into labor, but latest research from the University of the Western Cape has confirmed that chronic inflammation of the gums may result in early labor. Professor Charlene Africa, from UWC's department of medical biosciences, looked at oral swabs taken from pregnant women in Rwanda and KwaZulu-Natal. She found that up to 20 to 30 percent of preterm deliveries could be traced back to bacteria produced by pregnancy-related gingivitis. Periodontal disease was common to about 50 to 70 percent of pregnant women.

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 to protect the intellectual property rights of your dental practice
DentistryIQ
Many dentists hire independent consultants to develop their website or perform marketing services to brand their dental office. However, most dentists are unaware that without a written contract that includes certain provisions, the independent consultant retains ownership of the intellectual property created. This can create problems for dental practices that do not protect their rights.
