Study: Extract symptomatic 3rd molars, improve other teeth
DrBicuspid.com
For many Americans, conventional wisdom says that third-molar extraction is part of growing up. Meanwhile, in dentistry, there is considerable debate about the clinical indications that should lead to third-molar extractions. A new study published in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery has found support for the removal of third molars in patients with only mild symptoms of pericoronitis.

Mobile dentists perform root canals in company parking lots
MarketWatch
On the first and third Mondays of every month, employees at Santa Clara, Calif.-based tech company Nvidia see a familiar site: a massive white van pulling into their parking lot. But rather than carrying office supplies or snacks, it's full of periodontal probes, dental drills and tongue retractors. "It's just like a regular dentist, but in an RV," says Hector Marinez, an employee in the firm's communications department who uses the service.

Business 2 Community via Yahoo Small Business Advisor

Between competition, time restraints, and knowing what to use and what to say, Web-based strategies are again and again hailed as a number one priority for MD marketing.

Often, medical practices will rely on an in-house, tech-savvy specialist or an outside source for generating Internet exposure (social media, blogs, websites, etc.) while the practice's staff focuses on going beyond online marketing.

Update on chlorhexidine
DentistryIQ
Mechanical instrumentation, such as scaling and root planning, is an effective method for removing supra and subgingival bacterial biofilm on tooth surfaces, as well as reducing probing depths. It also creates noticeable changes in the subgingival bacteria to sustain a microflora indicative of periodontal health. It does not eliminate all of the periodontal pathogens, due to a number of factors.
