What happens when not brushing ...

Refinery 29 (7/12, Truong) reports that Jay, a 21-year-old man from the United Kingdom, sought help from a dentist after not brushing or flossing his teeth his entire life. According to the article, “A CT scan revealed that Jay would need to have 11 teeth pulled due to decay.” Jay’s story was featured on a British reality show earlier this year, and the article states the video shows “brushing your teeth is an important part of dental and overall hygiene,” and “as the American Dental Association recommends, you really should be brushing your teeth twice a day.”

Curtailing Opiod Prescriptions

In a New York Times (7/10, Subscription Publication) op-ed, Tina Rosenberg discusses how dental professionals and others are taking steps to reduce the number of prescriptions dentists write for opioids, such as prioritizing the use of NSAIDs and acetaminophen. Rosenberg notes a study published in The Journal of the American Dental Association “shows that a combination of ibuprofen and acetaminophen works better after wisdom teeth surgeries than opioids,” and the American Dental Association states dentists “should consider” NSAIDs as their first choice for pain treatment.

Positive review by Linda J., via BirdEye

She poked the bottom of my mouth several times and punched my lip between my tooth and her tool a couple of times. She actually made me jump it flinch several times. She said "I'm sorry but I've got to get it clean" I understand that, but that is the kind of stuff that scares people away from going to the dentist. Other than that it was a pleasant experience.

Peri-implant evaluation in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients

Implant therapies for patients with diabetes are predictable if patients fall within controlled glycemic ranges over time, as assessed by monitoring glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels. The finding is from a study published in the September 2015 issue of Clinical Oral Implants Research.
The study’s authors set out to measure changes in peri-implant tissues in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who had different glycemic levels. They monitored HbA1c levels over a 3-year period after placement of dental implants.

Crestal bone resorption showed a proportional relationship to glycemic levels, whereby greater marginal bone loss was seen in Group 4 compared with Group 1, which showed physiological HbA1c levels.
“The study provides a new overview of peri-implant tissue responses among diabetic patients, which permits an assessment of an important risk factor for dental implant failure,” the authors concluded. “For this reason, control and treatment of periodontal infections should be a key element in the overall care of patients with diabetes mellitus and could play an important role in ensuring the success of implant therapy.”
