Sask. dentist returns from Central America
News Talk 650
t wasn't like pulling teeth to get a dentist from Davidson to go to Nicaragua. Abe Chaukla went on the mission as part of the Alberta-based organization Kindness in Action. He spent time in a small clinic in Esteli, Nicaragua, a town full of sugarcane farmers. "I did about three-and-a-half days of extractions, so I pulled almost 200 teeth," Chaukla said. Wearing Saskatchewan Roughrider scrubs, Chaukla helped convert a classroom into a surgery room and had to get used to working without the luxuries of some modern equipment.

When connecting with a dentist doesn't mean an office visit
Los Angeles Daily News via Kaiser Health News
Inside a South Los Angeles classroom filled with plastic dinosaurs, building blocks, stuffed animals and Dr. Seuss books, Mireya Rodriguez counts Hendryk Vaquero's teeth and looks for cavities. At just 4 years old, he already has nine stainless steel crowns and multiple fillings, and his gums show signs of inflammation and infection. Since a check-up more than three months ago, he's lost a couple of teeth, including a capped tooth his mom pulled out after it started bleeding.

High-tech teeth: Dentistry is going digital
USA Today
Suffer a cracked or broken tooth and your dentist is likely to recommend a crown, a custom-fitted cap to cover it and restore the tooth's shape, strength and appearance. Traditionally that meant having a model of the tooth and surrounding area made using a mold, sending the impression to a dental laboratory to make the crown, having a temporary restoration put in place, waiting a week or more for the finished crown to be sent back to the dentist's office and returning for a second visit where the temporary is removed and the new crown is cemented into place.

A deeper look into tongue cleaning
Dentistry IQ
In my experience, tongue cleaning is a practice that is not highly discussed or valued within the dental community. While tongue cleaning is not at the forefront of most dentists’, hygienists’ or patients’ minds in the United States, it is commonplace among natives of Africa, Arabia, India, and a host of other regions. In these areas, the cleanliness of the entire mouth is emphasized. As such, tongue cleaning has become an integral part of the oral care routine. So how does it begin to gain traction here in the United States? It starts by educating patients on the health benefits of proper tongue hygiene.

5 signs it's time to see a dentist
Dr. Sinkin's blog
So many of us lead such busy lives that in reality, it is our busy lives that are leading us. So much so that we are often so preoccupied with our day to day activities and responsibilities that we fail to take care of some of the seemingly more mundane yet no less important things, like taking care of ourselves. This is especially true for how many people approach their dental health. We are so busy being busy with work, family and other obligations that we push the need for a visit to the dentist off the radar…until a problem rears its head and an emergency dental visit is required. How do you know if you need to see a dentist?

Emergency department dental care continues to increase other costs
Dentistry Today
More and more people are visiting emergency medical departments for dental care, based on a study by the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. The problem is particularly prevalent in low-income communities. The problems come from the fact that many people have no option but to visit the emergency room after experiencing intense dental pain.
