What's next in oral-systemics?
Dental Economics
We are still in the discovery phase of the degree to which risks for systemic diseases and conditions are impacted by the mouth and its microbial inhabitants. What will additional research reveal? Is there a realistic possibility that the existence of mouth/body connections are untrue? There is no possibility of that conclusion, because there is no separation between the two.

WHAT YOUR PATIENTS ARE READING


Column: Blessed are the peace-making dentists
USA Today
Stanley M. Bergman and Dr. Amid I. Ismail write, "Is it too unrealistic to think that peace might be better achieved at the point of a dentist's drill instead of a gun? We — an American Jew by way of South Africa and an American Muslim by way of Iraq — don't think it's unrealistic at all, because we have the proof. Our story involves two doctors from Jerusalem: Musa Bajali and Adam Stabholz. Dr. Bajali, a Palestinian Christian, heads the dental school at Al-Quds University. Dr. Stabholz, an Israeli Jew by way of Poland, just retired as dean of the dental school at Hebrew University. In November 2006, Musa and Adam collaborated to sponsor a symposium of dental professionals from across the Middle East on the subject of implant dentistry."

Prilocaine dental anesthetic poses a greater risk of increased methemoglobin in children
Anesthesia Progress via Surgical Restorative
Local anesthetics have played an important role in the evolution of modern dentistry. While their use has made many dental procedures commonplace, they do come with risks.

Oxidative stress and the use of antioxidants in dentistry
DentistryIQ
Oxidation is a natural process that occurs 24 hours a day during normal cellular function. Reactive oxygen species are continuously produced as byproducts of aerobic metabolism. Oxidative stress occurs when there is a physiological strain on the body that results from an increased production in ROS, or a decreased capability in the body’s antioxidant defense mechanisms. ROS are free radicals that are unstable molecules due to a missing electron. They attack other molecules in an effort to regain stability by "stealing" one of their electrons.

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.)

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.

EHR countdown: Are you ready for the revolution?
DrBicuspid.com
Michael Uretz writes, "Four year ago, when I wrote my first article for DrBicuspid.com, I argued that the dental software industry was poised to follow in the footsteps of the medical software industry in its development of electronic health records. In hindsight, it appears I was a bit early in my predictions. But having just returned from conducting the first EHR workshop for the Minnesota Dental Association, I can honestly say that the dental EHR revolution has begun."
