    Mouthwash does help oral health
    Net Doctor
    The regular use of germ-killing mouthwash alongside regular brushing can significantly reduce the development of plaque and gingivitis, compared with simply brushing alone. That was the conclusion of a new study published in the January/February 2012 issue of General Dentistry, the peer-reviewed clinical journal of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). According to the research, using mouthwash twice a day in addition to regular brushing significantly reduced the occurrence of plaque and gingivitis.

    How a 'tooth fairy' fixed my rotten teeth, and helped change my life
    Globe and Mail
    A simple act of kindness can nudge a life in a better direction, even if we don't appreciate it fully at the time. I know I didn't. But as I approach 65 this spring, one turning point has come into sharper focus.

    Can a new electric toothbrush really get your teeth cleaner?
    Yahoo.com
    The Sonicare has been the gold standard of teeth cleaning for years. Now, the Oral B Deep Sweep says it "removes up to 76 per cent more plaque than the Sonicare FlexCare in hard to reach places." But is one toothbrush really that much better than another?

    Grey Cup goes to the dentist
    Mississauga.com
    The Grey Cup GTA tour, set off by the Toronto Argonauts' 35-22 victory over the Calgary Stampeders in the historic 100th Grey Cup last November at the Rogers Centre, drilled down to a local dentist's office recently. Since the Argos took home the Cup, in part thanks to a clinching touchdown by Mississauga's own Andre Durie, almost everyone associated with the team has been given the opportunity to get up close and personal with the battered mug that symbolizes supremacy in the Canadian Football League.

    Sippy cups and your child's teeth
    Dentistry IQ
    As soon as teeth appear in the mouth, decay can occur. One of the risk factors for early childhood caries (sometimes called baby bottle tooth decay or nursing mouth syndrome) is frequent and prolonged exposure of a baby's teeth to liquids, such as fruit juice, milk or formula, which all contain sugar. Tooth decay can occur when a baby is put to bed with a bottle. Infants should finish their naptime or bedtime bottle before going to bed. Because decay can destroy the teeth of an infant or young child, you should encourage your children to drink from a cup by their first birthdays.

    How to help ease cancer patients' oral complications
    Dr. Biscupid
    While cancer survival rates are improving, common cancer therapies such as chemoradiation often cause acute oral complications and toxicities that are largely unavoidable, according to a study in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians (November/December 2012, Vol. 62:6, pp. 400-422). Increased awareness and aggressive management of oral toxicities are needed to ensure the long-term oral health and well-being of cancer patients, according to the study authors, led by Joel B. Epstein, DMD, MSD, director of oral health services at City of Hope cancer center.

    Modern diets are rotting out teeth
    Medical News Today
    A study of the evolution of our teeth over the last 7,500 years shows that humans today have less diverse oral bacteria than historic populations, which scientists believe have contributed to chronic oral diseases in post-industrial lifestyles. The researchers, from the University of Adelaide's Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD), the University of Aberdeen (Dept of Archeology), Scotland, and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Cambridge, England, published their study in Nature Genetics.

    Dental health on decline for Chicago's needy
    The Chicago Tribune
    As more than 30,000 dental experts descend on McCormick Place for their winter meeting this week, a new report issues a stark warning: The Chicago area's dental safety net — the oral care it provides to underserved patients — "is in the midst of collapse." From 2006 to 2011, more than a quarter of the region's low-cost dental clinics were shut, according to a 30-page white paper released Thursday by the Chicago Dental Society. The report details how the local availability of dental treatment has declined for the neediest patients, leading to what one dentist calls a "perfect storm of an oral health crisis."
