Toothache more common among minority and special needs children
Science Daily    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Poor, minority and special needs children are more likely to be affected by toothache, according to a report in the November issue of Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. "Toothache is a source of chronic and often severe pain that interferes with a child's ability to play, eat and pay attention in school," the authors write as background information in the study. The authors also note that "the most common cause of toothache is dental decay" and the "process of dental decay is one that optimally would be prevented or, at the very least, identified early and then arrested through provision of regular professional dental care."

Satisfying dentists and patients
Dental Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Although he's been practicing 22 years, ever since he was in dental school, Dr. Steven Goldberg was convinced there had to be a better way to give an injection that removed the pain from the process itself. Most dentists wiggle the cheek or lip of the patient, which is only marginally helpful and provides more of a distraction than pain relief. More

ADA apologizes for tolerating discrimination in '60s
NPR    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In a historic move, the American Dental Association has apologized for not taking a stand against discriminatory membership practices. In an open letter, Dr. Raymond Gist, who became the ADA's first African-American president in October, said the dentist group should have done a better job in making sure minorities could join affiliated state and local organizations before the mid-1960s. "[I]n looking forward, we must also look back," Gist wrote. "Along with acknowledging past mistakes and to build a stronger, collaborative platform for future accomplishments, the ADA apologizes to dentists for not strongly enforcing non-discriminatory membership practices prior to 1965."

Hypnosis for children undergoing dental treatment
U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Managing children is a challenge that many dentists face. Many non-pharmacological techniques have been developed to manage anxiety and behavioral problems in children, such us: 'tell, show & do,' positive reinforcement, modeling and hypnosis. The use of hypnosis is generally an overlooked area, hence the need for this review. More

Former miner freed from 33 years of pain after tooth is removed from his ear
Mail Online    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For more than 30 years, Stephen Hirst was in constant pain and partially deaf because of excruciating earache. But that is all in the past now after doctors found a tooth lodged in the former miner's ear. Now, Stephen can sleep unhindered by the intense headaches that plagued him. But medical staff remain mystified as to how the tooth came to be jammed in the 47-year-old's ear canal in the first place — especially as he had all his teeth taken out some time ago. More

Dentistry IQ    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Most people think of a mouth ulcer as a minor irritation that will disappear in a few days. Normally they're right. But if the ulcer doesn't heal and lasts longer than three weeks, it could be a sign of something much more sinister: mouth cancer. More
