UK News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the past, America's fighting men and women have relied on sugary gums found in rations as a way to clean their teeth. Thanks to research conducted at the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy, GI's of the future could be carrying a type of chewing gum that will prevent dental decay and worsening dental problems down the road. The cavity fighting gum developed for soldiers who are deployed in areas where they often don't have the time or the means to brush or floss is receiving global attention as the product nears testing in an upcoming Phase I clinical trial.

KIDK-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We all know that it's important to wash our hands and cover our coughs especially during flu season, but those aren't the only ways to keep yourself healthy.

To avoid getting sick you wash your hands to eliminate germs, but you already have 400 different bacteria living in your mouth. More

Neuromuscular mouth guard draws performance debate
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
All mouth guards are designed to direct and distribute the impact of force to the jaw to minimize injuries such as lacerations, damaged teeth and concussions. Neuromuscular mouth guards are different from the traditional boil-and-bite ones that can be purchased at sporting goods stores, and even from the custom-fitted ones dentists often make for individual players of pro sports teams. Rather than focusing on the pre-existing relationship where the teeth come together and the jaw joints set in the sockets to find the bite like traditional dentists, neuromuscular dentists relax the muscles for a "verifiable position" that usually results in a joint socket position that's typically more down and forward.

Bottled water a risk factor for early childhood caries
Medscape Medical News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Drinking bottled water was the only modifiable risk factor related to early childhood caries in a retrospective investigation presented at the American Public Health Association 137th Annual Meeting. The study was prompted by the fact that 62 percent of children referred to an oral health clinic in the San Francisco area had caries by the age of two years. More than half of them drank bottled water, from which fluoride is usually removed, together with impurities, by reverse osmosis. More

Where the jobs are: Dental work
Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
National dentistry chains are growing, and they're hiring on all levels. The economic outlook may be grim, but people always need to get their teeth fixed. Some 40 percent of Americans don't go to the dentist regularly, according to government studies. They're likely to end up needing dentists more than anyone else, and retail dentistry operations are stepping into the breach. More

Tooth-binding micelles containing antimicrobials may provide long-term cavity protection
Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A new study suggests that tooth-binding micelles (or particles) may provide long-term cavity protection by adhering to tooth surfaces and gradually releasing encapsulated antimicrobials. Formulation of a mouthwash-based delivery system is anticipated, ultimately simplifying application and increasing at-home patient compliance. The researchers from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha and the University of Florida, Gainesville report their findings in the November 2009 issue of the journal Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.
