Dentists say you need to floss. Science says you don't.
Forbes
While working as a research fellow at the Primate Research Institute at the University of Kyoto in Japan, French ethologist Jean-Baptiste Leca witnessed a sight that would prompt a toothy smile from any dentist. One day, a 14-year-old female Japanese macaque named Chonpe plucked a string of hair, stretched it taut between her hands, and ran the strand between her teeth. She was flossing.

Neanderthals used toothpicks to alleviate gum disease
redOrbit
Scientists have discovered how the use of toothpicks to remove food scraps from between the teeth dates back all the way to as early as Homo habilis. Now, researchers examining the Cova Foradà Neanderthal fossil found this hominid also used toothpicks to ease the pain associated with oral diseases like inflammation of the gums. This discovery, reported in the journal PLOS ONE, is the oldest documented case of palliative treatment of dental disease using a toothpick.

Chew on this: 8 foods for healthy teeth
LiveScience
Regular brushing and flossing help keep teeth healthy by getting rid of sugars and food particles that team up with bacteria to form plaque. Plaque produces acid that damages tooth enamel, causes cavities and sets the stage for periodontal disease. Now a growing body of research is finding that certain foods may be good for teeth, too. Just as so-called "functional foods" may keep your heart healthy, for instance, others may promote oral health, according to Christine D. Wu, a pediatric dentistry researcher at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Dental implants and titanium dioxide nanotubes
DentistryIQ
Dental implants posts are usually made of titanium, surgically placed into the jawbone, and topped with artificial teeth. Dental implants imitate the look and feel of natural teeth, more so than dentures or bridges. While most dental implants are successful, a small percentage fail or must be removed. A scientist at Michigan Technological University found a way to lower that rate of failure to zero using nanotechnology.
