As we get well into the cold and flu season and with the festive season fast approaching, new research from the Dettol Hygiene Home Truths study has revealed that 48% of Britons are wary of greeting someone with a kiss on the cheek if they look ill.
Women are the most conscious of picking up germs from others with just over half (52%) saying they wouldn’t greet someone who looked ill with a kiss, and 35% saying they would avoid shaking hands. (Follow Indian namaste) MORE HERE
Intraoral CAM will make Endo easy
A new software tool used in conjunction with an intraoral camera demonstrated high sensitivity in the automatic, real-time detection of root canal orifices, according to a study in the Journal of Dental Education (November 2011, Vol. 75:11, pp. 1452-1457).
For this study, the researchers used a Durr Dental VistaCam Digital intraoral camera system connected to an HP Compaq nc8430 laptop with 2-GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM to study 200 human molars with fully intact root and enamel surfaces and without endodontic treatments.
The software found 543 root canal orifices, of which 506 were verified by the histological standard and 37 were found to be false positives (95.7% sensitivity).
“The results for the sensitivity of the software compared with histological slices are very promising for a possible computer-assisted application,” the study authors wrote. MORE HERE
Why Dentists are over treating you ?
Until 2010, Amelia Nuwer, 22, visited the same dentist every year in Biloxi, Miss.. And every year she came back with opinion: no fillings necessary.
Then, as a junior at the University of Alabama, she saw a new dentist who told her: two cavities. Six months later, the dentist told her she had two more. Earlier this year, he once again had bad news: yet another cavity.
In 12 months she had gone from perfect oral health to five fillings, costing her 500$.
With increasingly sophisticated detection technology, dentists are finding and treating tooth abnormalities that may or may not develop into cavities. While some describe their efforts as a proactive strategy to protect patients from harm, critics say the procedures are unnecessary and painful, and are driving up the costs of care.
