No guts, no glory, no teeth
The Sudbury Star
A dentist of 23 years, Mary Ann Majic has seen fewer injuries to the mouth since athletes in most sports began wearing mouthguards to play. It usually takes blunt force injury — an elbow to the face, a butt end to the mouth — to bust teeth. The exact force required depends on the tooth, the angle of the blow, the force dissipated over other teeth during the accident. Still, for Majic, wearing a mouthguard is easy protection.

Moore, Okla., dentists reaching out to help community after deadly tornado
DentistryIQ
The editors of Dentistry IQ made an effort to contact dental offices in the Moore, Okla., area. Due to the devastation in the area, phone lines were down. For numbers that were still connected, we reached answering machines. If dental offices weren't closed by necessity, they were closed out of respect. It was all hands on deck the day after the tornado that swept through the city, obliterating neighborhoods and schools and leaving nothing but rubble behind.

Dentists discovered the tooth-saving properties of fluoride by accident
Smithsonian
For the fourth time since 1956, Portland, Ore., has decided it doesn't want fluoride in its water. The pro-fluoride side had more money, more support from officials and more diverse backers, but when the votes were tallied, 60 percent of the city voted against adding fluoride to their water. Fluoride was first added to drinking water in Grand Rapids, Mich., in 1945, just a decade or so after scientists first identified its teeth-saving properties.

Medical Daily

Pro athlete tooth care is a serious matter in the emotionally charged, extreme game of ice hockey. But it probably won't stop anyone on the eight best eight teams of the NHL from going all out in their quest for the Stanley Cup. So for now, let's look at the 10 best toothless smiles of this year's playoffs.

By D. Albert Brannen
