Helmets, mouthguards: Is there 'concussion-proof' equipment for fall sports?
Philly.com
According to the recent Team Physician's Consensus Statement on Concussion and the National Federation of State High School Associations, there is no football helmet, or mouth guard for that matter, that can prevent a concussion. Helmets have been designed to prevent skull fractures, cerebral bleeding and other head trauma. Mouth guards have been developed to protect teeth and against oral injuries. So, what can be done to protect student athletes as they take the field this fall?

Doppler radar method being used in dentistry
AZFamily
VideoBriefBrushing and flossing your teeth is something we all know to do and some of us are more diligent about it than others. But all that brushing and flossing doesn't always guarantee you'll get all of that tooth-decaying bacterium. Now there's a new method some dentists are using to help detect cavities, even sooner than an X-ray can. It's called Spectra and can be best described as a doppler radar of your tooth.

University of Washington
Anyone who tries to play "smash-mouth football" against the University of Washington this fall will find the Huskies fully prepared, thanks to a little help from School of Dentistry faculty, students and staff. This summer, Department of Pediatric Dentistry residents took dental impressions for members of the Husky football team at the UW athletic department. The impressions were used to fabricate about 100 customized mouth guards at the Center for Pediatric Dentistry.

A triple tray for impressions
Dental Economics
Dr. Michael DiTolla writes, "Since my son plays ice hockey, he pretty much needs a new mouthguard every season. He needs a new mouthguard particularly from the incessant chewing while he is on the bench, not unlike a dog with rawhide. You would think he would take better care of the mouthguard, considering how much he dislikes have the impressions taken every year. When it comes time to take the impressions, it does not seem to matter if we use alginate or an alginate substitute material; there seems to be a fair amount of gagging. I think the gagging is dependent more on the tray shape than the tray material itself."

Social Dental Network
Social media for the dental practice has come a long way in just a few short years. We hear reports every now and again that more traditional new patient acquisition efforts, like Yellow Pages & Direct Mail, are still useful in certain areas — targeting certain demographics — but without a complementary social media identity, dentists are not maximizing their new patient recruitment efforts. The emphasis has shifted from over-bloated underperforming dental marketing, to content creation and digital word-of-mouth amplification, which social networks such as Facebook. Here are 3 ways you can use Facebook to acquire new patients.

Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease
By Maria Frisch
Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease is the most common inherited neuromuscular disorder of the peripheral nervous system, with an estimated prevalence of 17-40 out of 10,000. Common symptoms of this disorder include a progressive muscle weakness and atrophy, sensory loss, deformities of the extremities and drop foot.

Mixed feelings over NFL concussion settlement
The New York Times
Former NFL pro Scott Fujita writes, "I expected a settlement to come at some point. What I didn’t expect was to feel so oddly conflicted about it. The NFL and the more than 4,500 plaintiffs involved in a consolidated concussion lawsuit agreed to settle their differences and, pending the approval of a judge, were prepared to put the dispute behind them. Good news, right? Certainly a win for everyone involved? I'm not so sure."
