Could urine help us regrow lost teeth?
The Daily Mail
Chinese scientists predict stem cells obtained from urine could allow humans to regrow lost teeth. The Chinese Academy of Sciences has created tooth-like structures in mice and believes one day bioengineered "tooth buds" could be transplanted into humans who have lost their teeth. The primitive tooth-like structures are the first solid tissues to be developed using a technique in which discarded cells from human waste can be coaxed into becoming stem cells.

Fringe benefit plans: Valuable planning tools you haven't heard of
By David B. Mandell, JD, MBA, and Carole Foos, CPA
As authors of a number of books on financial planning specifically for all types of doctors, we have had the opportunity to speak with hundreds of sports dentists of various ages over the past decade. What we have seen is that two dentists with similar incomes can have very different income levels in retirement. Fortunately, both qualified retirement plans and fringe benefit plans can help you address these challenges in significant ways. In this article, we will discuss the basics of these two plans.

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.

WebMD via KGPE-TV
Poor dental health and gum disease may be linked to Alzheimer's disease and dementia, a new study from the University of Central Lancashire School of Medicine and Dentistry suggests.

Taiwanese researchers demo the quantified tooth
Mobi Health News
One of the mantras for the quantified self movement seems to be that no place is off-limits for a sensor. Now a team of researchers from the National Taiwan University in Taipei have found a new wearable use case — a tiny accelerometer for your teeth. "The human mouth is one part of the human body that is almost always in constant use," the authors write in the study. "We use our mouth to perform some of the most important daily functions, such as eating, drinking, speaking, coughing, breathing, and smoking. Because our mouth is an opening into assessing the health of the human body, it presents the opportunity for the placement of a strategic sensor for detecting human oral activities."

Effectiveness of a resin-modified glass ionomer liner in reducing hypersensitivity in posterior restorations
The Journal of the American Dental Association
The objectives of this randomized comparative effectiveness study conducted by members of the Practitioners Engaged in Applied Research and Learning Network were to determine whether using a resin-modified glass ionomer liner reduces postoperative hypersensitivity in dentin-bonded Class I and Class II resin-based composite restorations, as well as to identify other factors (putative risk factors) associated with increased POH.

ThinkProgress
As a lawsuit challenging the NCAA's practices on concussions continues to proceed through federal court, two members of Congress introduced legislation to plug gaps the NCAA has left unfilled on how players suspected of suffering head injuries are tested and evaluated. The legislation from Reps. Charlie Dent and Joyce Beatty would mandate that colleges perform baseline concussion testing on athletes who play contact sports.

Straight talk about the prophylaxis: Myths and realities
DentistryiQ
One of the best ways to ensure your practice is delivering the best standard of care in the hygiene department is to develop a series of written standard of care documents. Practices with standard of care documents typically yield better case acceptance as well as higher levels of team calibration. One of the most common procedures performed in the hygiene department is the prophylaxis (D1110). To many coding experts, the D1110 is also one of the most misinterpreted codes in all of dentistry.

Researchers ID key protein in TMJD pain
DrBicuspid.com
Researchers at Duke Medicine have identified a protein that is critical to temporomandibular joint disorder pain and could be a promising target for developing treatments for the condition. The researchers studied both normal mice and mice genetically engineered without the TRPV4 gene. They created inflammation in the temporomandibular joints of the mice, then measured bite force exerted by the mice to assess jaw inflammation and pain, similar to how TMJD pain is gauged in human patients.
