Adding a new service that patients want
Dentistry iQ
There has been a major movement in dentistry to preserve as much tooth structure as possible. General dentists are moving away from the veneer boom of the 2000s, and have moved into tooth alignment as the cosmetic treatment of choice. One of the main driving forces behind this move has been a change in philosophy that means dentists are now seeking to provide quality cosmetic solutions that are also minimally invasive and preserve as much tooth structure as possible.

3-D imaging improves orofacial pain diagnoses
Dr. Bicuspid
Cone-beam CT and magnetic resonance imaging offer a number of advantages over 2-D imaging tools for diagnosing temporomandibular disorders and orofacial pain, according to a paper in Dental Clinics of North America. A number of new imaging techniques have been introduced since 1992, however, which prompted the authors of the present study to consider if some of these newer modalities offer advantages for orofacial pain diagnoses.

The key to limiting sports head trauma may be here, and it's not a new helmet
Yahoo Sports
Generally, the enumerated sporting goods advances called for focus squarely on helmets and padding. Now, one new biometric company feels it may have an answer that will help make it much more clear when a player has suffered a case of head trauma, and it doesn't involve a new helmet or more or better padding. Rather, it focuses on the technology involved in the oldest and most common part of a player's gear: their mouthpiece.

Coaches to watch for concussion signs
The Associated Press via Star Tribune
High school and middle school coaches in West Virginia will be watching for signs of student athlete concussions during the upcoming school year.

Loyola sports medicine physician's advice for parents of high school athletes: Don't let them play football
The Medical News
Prominent sports medicine physician Dr. Pietro Tonino of Loyola University Medical Center has some blunt advice for parents of high school athletes who want to play football this fall: Don't let them do it. "When you have two human beings collide at a high rate of speed — especially if one of them is much bigger than the other — then significant injuries are quite possible," Tonino said. "I don't believe it is worth the risk. So I advise parents to try to steer their children to alternative sports. We are just beginning to understand the long-term consequences of injuries sustained at young ages."

The mini marbles that can repair tooth decay and alleviate sensitive teeth
The Daily Mail
Tiny glass balls in toothpaste may halt decay and also help with sensitive teeth. The balls, which are no wider than a human hair, contain calcium and phosphate, crucial components of tooth enamel. They have been developed to help repair teeth damaged by decay but where the damage is not severe enough to warrant a filling. As well as tackling decay, the glass balls may reduce the problem of sensitive teeth where the tooth enamel is worn down, exposing the dentine, the softer layer underneath.
