Are nanodiamond-encrusted teeth the future of dental implants?
UCLA Newsroom
UCLA researchers have discovered that diamonds on a much, much smaller scale than those used in jewelry could be used to promote bone growth and the durability of dental implants. Nanodiamonds, which are created as byproducts of conventional mining and refining operations, are approximately 4 to 5 nanometers in diameter and are shaped like tiny soccer balls.

New nanotube surface promises dental implants that heal faster and fight infection
ScienceDaily
A brighter, better, longer-lasting dental implant may soon be on its way to your dentist's office. Dental implants are posts, usually made of titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone and topped with artificial teeth. More than dentures or bridges, implants mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. While most dental implants are successful, a small percentage fail and either fall out or must be removed. A scientist at Michigan Technological University wants to lower that rate to zero using nanotechnology.

IOH: Dental pros need to think outside the oral cavity
DrBicuspid.com
Dental professionals spend much of their time focused on minute details: measuring a periodontal pocket, examining a soft spot in the enamel, placing a restoration in a tooth. But to ensure the oral health of the U.S. as a whole, members of the profession also need to step back and see the big picture. That was the prevailing message at the annual Institute for Oral Health conference, held in Washington, D.C. (May require free registration to view article.)

Critics: 'Mountain Dew Mouth' is destroying Appalachia's teeth
NPR
Obesity. Diabetes. By now, we've all heard of the health risks posed by drinking too much soda. But over in Appalachia, the region that stretches roughly from southern New York state to Alabama, the fight against soda is targeting an altogether different concern: rotted teeth. Public health advocates say soft drinks are driving the region's alarmingly high incidence of eroded brown teeth — a phenomenon dubbed "Mountain Dew mouth," after the region's favorite drink.

Why we need more (women) leaders
Harvard Business Review
There's been a lot of talk this past year about why more women don't become leaders. About what our society needs to change to produce more female leaders. There's even been some discussion about why women are better leaders than men in some arenas. Often overlooked is this basic reality: what the world needs is more leaders, of whatever gender or any other characteristic. (May require free registration to view article.)

It's been known for a while that HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancers and other conditions, but it came as a surprise to many that the virus can be transmitted by oral sex.

Have you thought about retirement lately?
DrBicuspid.com
Whether we like it or not, 2013 is the beginning of a new tax reality in the U.S. A new tax bracket and additional taxes to pay for healthcare make qualified plans an even better tax solution. Above-the-line tax deductions are scarce these days; contributions to qualified plans reduce both taxable income and adjusted gross income. This translates to lower tax brackets and, therefore, minimizes the impact of new tax rates. Therefore, now more than ever, qualified retirement plans can have a measurable impact on your tax bill.

Periodontitis: Metformin may be an effective local treatment
Medscape
Metformin, a drug used for diabetes, can also effectively treat chronic periodontitis in smokers, a new study shows. Administered in a 1 percent gel, the drug increased bone fill 26.17 percent (± 6.66 percent) compared with only 3.75 percent (± 8.06 percent) for a placebo when both were combined with scaling and root planing. It also reduced probing depth and increased clinical attachment levels more than placebo. (May require free registration to view article.)

Oral cancer survivor shares emotional journey
DrBicuspid.com
After having a third of her tongue removed and enduring six weeks of daily radiation to her head and neck to treat her stage IV oral squamous cell carcinoma, Eva Grayzel had had enough. The vivacious 31-year-old mother of two young children could only eat a spoonful of food a day because it was too painful to swallow. She developed painful blisters in her mouth and throat that would open and bleed during severe coughing fits. She lost her voice and would wake in a panic gasping for breath when thick saliva pooled in her throat. Given only a 15 percent chance of survival, she wrote a farewell note to her husband and children. (May require free registration to view article.)
