No evidence- See Your Dentist Twice A Year
This advice originally came from an old toothpaste ad. There was no science behind it, and there still isn’t. A 2003 review looked at 29 studies and found no conclusive evidence supporting a need to go every 6 months. If your choppers (and gums!) are healthy, once a year is enough to catch any developing problems, says James Bader, D.D.S., M.P.H., a research professor at the University of North Carolina school of dentistry.

Chennai Dental hosp to host global clinical trials
A Chennai dental hospital has been chosen as one of the nine sites for an international clinical trial on zygoma tooth implants.
Zygoma teeth are the new-age permanent implants used instead of dentures by people who have lost their teeth because of various diseases or genetic disorders.
Zygoma prosthetics shorten the time taken for a tooth implant procedure from one year to 72 hours.
“Many young people lose their teeth to aggressive peritonitis, or gum disease. We do not know what causes the disease, but the sufferer’s teeth become loose and fall off and even his jaw bone is destroyed,” explains Dr R. Gunaseelan, oral and maxillofacial surgeon at Rajan Dental Institute, which will be Asia’s second trial centre after a hospital in Hong Kong. LINK

While ultrasound is best known in dentistry for its scaling and surgical abilities, the WVU team has been studying the use of high-frequency ultrasound to construct 3D images of hard and soft tissues in the oral cavity.
