Papers
  1. -Dental Health (US News)
      "Everything you need to know to keep your pearly whites in tip-top shape." 05-08

  2. A New Molecule May Stop Cavities (Time.com)
      "In laboratory tests, Keep 32 was able to wipe out all the bacteria that cause cavities in about 60 seconds. The molecule targets the bacteria known as streptococcus mutans, which keeps dentists in business by turning sugar into lactic acid, which in turn erodes tooth enamel. Once the streptococcus mutans is eradicated, mouths stay cavity-proof for several hours." 07-12

  3. Comparing Electric Toothbrushes (US News)
      "A 2005 review by the Cochrane Collaboration Oral Health Group, part of an international, not-for-profit organization that provides information about the effects of healthcare, found that so-called rotation oscillation toothbrushes (in which the brush head rotates in one direction and then reverses) are more effective at removing plaque and reducing gingivitis than no-tech brushes, assuming normal use. An earlier review, published in 2003, yielded similar results." 05-08

  4. Dental Emergencies (Health World)
      Provides a decision tree for different symptoms, available at the bottom of the page. 1-04

  5. Flouride Rinses to Prevent Cavities (Udent.com)
      "The process of tooth decay causes demineralization or loss of minerals. With the aid of fluorides, minerals can be incorporated back into the lesion through remineralization. Both the demineralization and remineralization processes are continuously ongoing within the tooth. When remineralization overcomes the demineralization process, caries (decay) can actually be reversed and the lesion repaired. The remineralization process also significantly increases the size of the enamel crystals. These larger crystals are more resistant to acid attack than even natural enamel."

      However, excess flouride in the water supply can be harmful. "Ingestion of water having a fluoride concentration of two or three times greater than the recommended level can produce white flecks and chalky opaque areas. Consumption of water having a fluoride concentration of four times the recommended level can cause brown, pitted and corroded areas." Visitors sometimes misspell as floride. 2-04

  6. Four Critical Oral Health Care Habits (US News)
      "A 2005 review by the Cochrane Collaboration Oral Health Group, part of an international, not-for-profit organization that provides information about the effects of healthcare, found that so-called rotation oscillation toothbrushes (in which the brush head rotates in one direction and then reverses) are more effective at removing plaque and reducing gingivitis than no-tech brushes, assuming normal use. An earlier review, published in 2003, yielded similar results." 05-08

  7. Gel Regenerates Teeth (MSNBC News)
      "A new peptide, embedded in a soft gel or a thin, flexible film and placed next to a cavity, encourages cells inside teeth to regenerate in about a month, according to a new study in the journal ACS Nano. This technology is the first of its kind."

      "The new gel or thin film could eliminate the need to fill painful cavities or drill deep into the root canal of an infected tooth."

      "That said, regenerating a tooth from within would only be useful in a relatively small number of cases. Most cavities would still need to be drilled and filled." 06-10

  8. Straws May Help Reduce Tooth Decay (CBS News)

      "Generally, expert cosmetic dentists in 2006 charge somewhere over $1000 apiece for porcelain veneers, on up to over $2000."

      "Let me take this opportunity to caution you some about porcelain veneers. Since cosmetic dentistry isn't a legally recognized specialty, any dentist, with no more training than is given in dental school, can call himself or herself a cosmetic dentist. This procedure, to be done right, however, requires artistic sensitivity and extensive additional training beyond dental school." 01-09
