    Can dental anesthetic really make your heart beat faster?
    Oral Answers
    Back when I was in dental school, the instructors told us to always pull back on the anesthetic syringe before injecting. By doing this, we would make sure that we weren't injecting the anesthetic into a blood vessel, which would cause the epinephrine in the anesthetic to make the patient's heart feel like it was beating out of their chest.

    Pacifiers and dental health
    Dr. Perrone
    Pacifiers are used as a soothing tool in infants and very young children. The habit of sucking is a normal, natural behavior for babies. This is how they receive all of their nutrition in the first months of life. Some babies will even begin sucking on their fingers or thumb inside the womb. Babies will also suck for other reasons. It is a soothing behaviour that can help them relax and sometimes even put them to sleep.

    The real reason your teeth are hurting
    Men's Health
    Feel pain in your pearly whites? Don't rush to the dentist just yet. You could have over-sensitive teeth instead of a cavity, according to new research in the Journal of the American Dental Association. Dentists examined more than 700 hurting patients to pinpoint the root of their pain, and found that one in eight were suffering from tooth sensitivity. It happens when the enamel on the outside of your tooth, or the tissue between your tooth and gum, starts to wear away, says John M. Coke, D.D.S., professor of General Dentistry & Oral Medicine at the University of Alabama. That exposes tubes connecting the nerves inside your teeth, so any kind of stimulus on that nerve will register as pain, Dr. Coke says.

    The secret life of biofilms
    Dr. Biscuspid

    Study proves fluoride helps adult teeth
    ABC Adelaide
    How often when you’re drinking Mount Gambier tap water, do you think about the fact that it’s fluoridated? The fluoride’s been in the city’s water supply for a few years now and despite the fact that it was something of a controversial move at the time, that’s since died down.

    Dental Buzz
