Gum Disease and your Health Video Gingivitis and Periodontitis have been linked to poor health 0

Here is a video from FOX 11 news Many people spend thousands of dollars every year trying to prevent diseases, like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. They spend it on everything from prescription medications, to healthy cookbooks, organic foods and gymnasium memberships. Doctors are now realizing that some things, as simple as a toothbrush and floss, are two of the most important tools to combat disease. Common problems like gum disease, cavities, and missing teeth, help predict heart disease and cholesterol levels. FOX 26 Morning News Extra anchor Melissa Wilson met with several dentists in the Houston area who are saving patients’ lives. Yes, dentists are saving lives! Dr. Terri Alani takes the blood pressure of all of her patients. When a patient has high blood pressure, coupled with bleeding gums, she refers them to a cardiologist and they often get diagnosed with heart disease. One local man says that Dr. Alani saved his life. John Dengal suffered from both problems and cardiologist Dr. Kota Reddy confirmed what Dr. Alani suspected. Dengal still cannot believe that he learned of the disease through his dentist. Dr. Spiker Davis was one of the first dentists in the U.S. to use digital equipment

Politics of LANAP 0

A post by Dr Wes Hadix was posted on a Dental Site that was so well written I decided to repost here. Initially a Periodontist posted  I visit Laser Dentistry forums on occasion for a brief escape from reality and comic relief.  Every so often, there are some great cases being presented.  Otherwise, it’s like being hounded in the Expo Hall on the last day of a dental convention. The bias is so thick you can cut it with a knife.  Someone please discuss HONESTLY, where are we headed with lasers in dentistry? Are we doomed to repeat a bunch of case reports and testimonials? Where is the NIH, The ADA, The AAP? Cowards! If we dentists have a shred of integrity left, then we must demand the UNBIASED research. Without it, we are doomed to lose our credibility with the public and with our peers. Please God, don’t tell me about Ray Yukna’s paper one more time or ill puke! It’s one of the weakest forms of evidence on the tree of research. It’s not that I don’t appreciate his contribution, but too many people hold onto it like the last life boat on the Titanic.  It may keep you afloat, but just barely. I don’t even think
