The importance of flossing and regular check-ups
Guelph Mercury
Most people brush their teeth regularly about twice a day, and get regular check-ups but fail to integrate a regular flossing routine.

Can candies combat cavities?
Science Mag
Your dentist told you to avoid sweets, but you may actually be able to fight tooth decay by sucking on candy — if it's laced with the right dead bacteria. In a new study, volunteers who consumed such candies lowered the levels of cavity — causing bacteria in their saliva, presumably because the dead bacteria tie up the living ones, which are then swallowed.

Periodontitis & Peri-Implantitis: What's the difference?
The Endo Blog
Replacement of missing teeth with implant supported restorations has become increasingly common. While implant supported restorations do not share the risk of dental caries that natural teeth are subject to, they are susceptible to peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis, just as the natural dentition is subject to gingivitis and periodontitis. It is well established that periodic periodontal maintenance can optimize the long-term prognosis of the natural dentition.
