Dental - Scientists Use Ultrasound To Regrow Teeth And Bone - A Broken Tooth Can Be Re-Grown In One Year

Scientists Use Ultrasound To Regrow Teeth And Bone - A Broken Tooth Can Be Re-Grown In One Year

Health

Researchers from the University of Alberta believe they have found a method of regrowing teeth and possibly bone that have been broken.  The scientists use a miniaturized low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) system-on-a-chip which offers a non-invasive and novel way to stimulate jaw growth and dental tissue healing.

Dr. Tarak El-Bialy from the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and Dr. Jie Chen and Dr. Ying Tsui from the Faculty of Engineering developed a tiny wireless ultrasound transducer device that comfortably fits inside the patient’s mouth while packed in biocompatible materials.  The device is mounted on an orthodontic or “braces” bracket or even a plastic removable crown. The team also designed an energy sensor that will ensure the LIPUS power is reaching the target area of the teeth roots within the bone.  Dental - Scientists Use Ultrasound To Regrow Teeth And Bone - A Broken Tooth Can Be Re-Grown In One Year

Do you or someone you know suffer from chronic headaches or Migraines? Usually these people have seen a variety of different doctors, with little if any relief. Their symptoms are being treated, but the cause of the problem still persists. Ever thought about seeing your dentist for a migraine?

Well that is just one of the conditions that Neuromuscular dentistry is being used to treat. Neuromuscular dentistry is one of the new technologies available in dentistry today. It is different from regular dentistry in that it focuses on the muscles of the jaw and neck and how they are related to the teeth.  Migraines and Headaches - Have A Headache? See Your Dentist

White Teeth

A new study indicates that there is a connection between fluoride intake and fluorosis of the permanent incisors.  Fluorosis is characterized by white streaks or splotches on the teeth.  Kids in the study, who are currently 10 to 13 years of age, were followed since birth.  The Iowa Fluoride Study recorded food and beverage intakes multiple times throughout those years.

The well water and purchased beverages were analyzed for fluoride concentrations. When the kids were between 7.7 and 12 years of age, they had dental examinations, where researchers looked for evidence of fluorosis. 

The researchers compared amounts of fluoride consumed and children with and without fluorosis in their permanent incisors.  They found that 35% of the children had some evidence of dental fluorosis, most of which was mild.  Fluoride Consumption Linked to White Streaks and Splotches in Teeth - Compare Different Drinks With Tooth Erosion and Decay - Diet Coke OK

Xylitol Chewing Gum gaining in Popularity – Prevents Tooth Decay

Xylitol Chewing Gum

First researched in Finland, Xylitol has shown in numerous studies to prevent tooth decay.  Other research conducted in Brazil and Michigan also show that Xylitol in chewing gum helps to prevent cavities.  Xylitol is a found in plants, trees, fruits and vegetables.  The more the chewing gum contains Xylitol, the better the benefits to preventing cavities.

The benefits to chewing gum with Xylitol are many.  It helps to prevent tooth decay.  It will replace minerals in the tooth decayed lesions.  It reduces the number of cavities and reduces the amount of plaque build-up on teeth.  Chewing gum with Xylitol will increase saliva production preventing dryness in the mouth.  Xylitol Chewing Gum gaining in Popularity – Prevents Tooth Decay


Premature Birth and Gum Disease Link - Periodontal Ailments Linked to Heart Illness, Early Births and Type 2 Diabetes

Periodontal Disease

New research reinforces the belief that there is a connection between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease, as well as premature births.  Now it appears that one way to reduce the risk of heart disease may be to manage other risk factors for the disease as well, including dental hygiene.  Dr. Moise Desyarieux, MD said "It appears a relationship exists, but we don't know exactly what it is and if it is a causal relationship.  Therefore, we can't make recommendations for people with periodontal disease in respect to cardiovascular disease." 

Dr. Desvarieux is an infectious disease epidemiologist in the Department of Epidemiology at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health.  His team coordinated the (INVEST) study to investigate the oral health-cardiovascular disease relationship.

The main risk factors for cardiovascular disease should also be addressed.  Dr. Desvarieux said "To reduce their risk for cardiovascular disease, patients must manage all their risk factors, including smoking, diabetes, and weight."  Premature Birth and Gum Disease Link - Periodontal Ailments Linked to Heart Illness, Early Births and Type 2 Diabetes

Dental Implants Procedures in One Hour - How Much Do They Cost and How Long Do They Take - Permanent Solution For Lost Teeth Dentures and Bridges

Dental Implant

Dental implants may be a better alternative for denture wearers. The problem is that implants take a very long time to complete and can be very expensive.  Since most insurance plans do not cover the expense, most individuals in the past have turned to dentures and bridges to replace lost teeth. 

Implants start at around $500 and can go up to $6,000 per tooth.  Most implants will cost between $1,200 and $2,000.  There are reasons why the cost could go up, so you will want to choose a dentist familiar with many restorative options.

Usually, anyone that can undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for an implant.  Patients will need healthy gums and enough bone to hold the abutment that attaches to the crown.  Patients with diabetes, heart disease or other chronic disorders need to be evaluated on an individual basis. Dental Implants Procedures in One Hour - How Much Do They Cost and How Long Do They Take - Permanent Solution For Lost Teeth Dentures and Bridges  


Teeth Whitening - downfalls to doing it at Home

Teeth Whitening - downfalls to doing it at Home

Before and After BrightSmile Treatment

With all the toothpaste products out that whiten teeth, why would a person get it done professionally?  There are many reasons why going to your dentist to have your teeth whitened is a better choice.

One reason is that a trip to the dentist or dental whitening professional should make sure you’re your teeth and gums are healthy and able to be whitened.  Before any whitening is performed it should be determined if your teeth are up for the brightening.

Another benefit to going to the professional for the teeth whitening treatment is that you can get dramatic results in an hour’s time.  You can see as many as 14 shades brighter teeth.  If you were to bleach your teeth with a chemical treatment using a tray method at home, it could take numerous treatments to get 6 shades lighter.  This treatment can cause you to have sensitive teeth afterwards, depending on the chemicals that the manufacturer uses.  If you use whitening strips, it takes 7 – 30 days to achieve up to 4 shades lighter.  The downfall to strips is that they miss the gaps in between the teeth and your teeth can come out patchy looking.  The toothpaste method you can expect in a month’s time up to 2 shades lighter.  The downfall is that you will quickly loose the whitening if you stop using the toothpaste.  Teeth Whitening - downfalls to doing it at Home
