Postmenopausal Women With Periodontal Disease May Have Higher Risk Of Developing Breast Cancer

Reuters (12/22, Doyle) reports that research published online in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention suggests that postmenopausal women who have periodontal disease may have a higher risk of developing breast cancer than those who do not have periodontal disease.

The American Association for Cancer Research (12/22) website reports that the researchers monitored nearly 74,000 postmenopausal women, finding that after about 6.7 years, “the risk of breast cancer was 14 percent higher in women who had periodontal disease.” In addition, “Among women who had quit smoking within the past 20 years, those with periodontal disease had a 36 percent higher risk of breast cancer,” while “women who were smoking at the time of this study had a 32 percent higher risk if they had periodontal disease, but the association was not statistically significant.”

Dentistry Beginning To Integrate With Other Fields ... Slowly

NewsWorks (12/17) considered why dentistry and dental benefits have operated “separately from other fields of medicine,” examining the history of the industry and the differences in how dental and medical plans work. Marko Vujicic, head of the American Dental Association’s Health Policy Institute, said, “That catastrophic quote-un-quote coverage that medical plans are designed to provide, it’s a little bit reversed with the typical dental plans in the market.” The article states that according to the American Dental Association, whereas medical benefits often cover treatment for unpredictable and catastrophic needs, dental benefits cover needs that are predictable and non-catastrophic. “The dentist can be the first person to see so many problems, so we’re trying to put it back together,” said Dr. Matthew Messina, a consumer advisor with the American Dental Association, explaining that the dentistry and medical fields are beginning to move closer together. “But traditionally, it’s the fact that physicians and dentists were trained in separate schools that sort of divided the process.” Additional information on the differences between dental and medical needs, treatments, and benefit plans is available on

Swan-Song For Dental Fillings? If It Sounds Too Good To Be True…

A follow-up of a randomized controlled clinical trial of the Caries Management System in Australia is getting a lot of media attention with catchy titles like “Goodbye to dental fillings? ‘No-drill’ techniques can treat tooth decay just as well, study finds.” What is this magical intervention that supposedly eradicates the need for dental fillings?

Spoiler alert, the Caries Management System is only ‘no-drill’ for management of early caries lesions. It is inaccurate to conclude that adoption of this approach will mean an end of dental fillings. It is worth recognizing that a non-surgical approach to caries lesions management is a component of all approaches to caries classification.
