Self-treatments using baking soda, ash and hydrogen peroxide, many of which are detailed online by members of the public with no dental experience, can strip tooth enamel and cause lasting damage to the gums, experts cautioned. The techniques are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to expensive professional treatment, especially among teenage girls. Examples of the potentially hazardous advice offered online include brushing the teeth with soap, salt, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide or bleach.

Fish Fights Gum Disease

Fish Fights Gum Disease

Estetic Dentistry News
A diet full of fish and nuts goes a long way to protect people from gum disease - a new study has shown. The research has suggested that polyunsaturated fatty acids found in foods such as fatty fish and nuts will help keep people’s smiles healthy, as it has been shown to help lower the risks of gum disease and periodontitis. The research examined the diet of 182 adults between 1999 and 2004, and found that those who consumed the highest amounts of fatty acids were 30 percent less likely to develop gum disease and 20 percent less likely to develop periodontitis (severe gum disease). Lead researcher of the [...]

Oral Health Still a Major Concern in Africa

General Dentistry News

At the conference in Nairobi, experts praised recent programs and projects, which have helped to raise awareness of oral health and improve access to dental care; however, they also stressed that there was a still long way to go, as standards of oral health are very poor in countries across Africa. One of the most serious problems is the lack of dentists and dental specialists; this makes seeing a dentist difficult and also means that professionals are under [...]
Closer look at dental plaque bacteria

Closer look at dental plaque bacteria

Estetic Dentistry News
A team of University of Rochester scientists is using the technique of Raman spectroscopy to study 2 common dental plaque bacteria, Streptococcus sanguis and mutans. The relative balance of the two may be an indicator of a patient’s oral health and risk for tooth decay - S sanguis is associated with “healthy” plaque, while mutans is associated with tooth decay. Raman spectroscopy offers the potential to analyze samples of the bacterium in a simple, rapid and quantitative manner as compared to microbiology techniques, including the ability to study spatial distributions of bacterial species, living or dead, within [...]

A Prospective Clinical Study to Evaluate Early Success of Short Implants Short implants are an alternative to bone augmentation procedures for patients with reduced bone height. This study evaluated the success of short implants in posterior locations prior to loading. Materials and Methods: Eighteen patients received at least four Astra Tech implants in symmetric posterior locations. Implants (n = 82) ranged from 6 to 11 mm with 70 implants ≤ 9 mm and 38 implants = 6 mm. Placement was planned virtually using software and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans. Computer-generated guides were ordered [...]

Are success and survival rates of early implant placement higher than immediate implant placement?

Dental Implant News
Immediate placement refers to the placement of an implant into a tooth socket at the time of extraction; early placement refers to the placement of an implant after substantial gingival healing, but before any clinically significant bone fill occurs within the socket. This study evaluated the success and survival rates of implants following immediate and early placement. 50 implants were placed in 36 patients. 26 immediate (group I) and 24 early placements (group II) were performed. Pain or tenderness with function, mobility, radiographic bone loss from initial surgery and exudate history were evaluated. [...]
