The Align Technology (NSDQ:ALGN) backed SmileDirectClub is reportedly sending cease-and-desist letters to dentists who criticize its products, according to a BuzzFeed report. The company sent at least 2 cease-and-desist letters last month, threatening lawsuits if dentists did not remove videos they’d posted criticizing the practice of do-it-yourself clear teeth aligners, according to the report. The cease-and-desist letters join a lawsuit from late October that the company levied against a group of New York and New Jersey orthodontists who posted a similar video, and a suit against a Michigan affiliate of t...

ConclusionsSignificant additional clinical and radiographic improvements are obtained after local, but not systemic, statin use as an adjunct to SRP in deep pockets associated with intrabony defects and seemingly with furcation defects; intrasurgical statin application seems similarly beneficial. Confirmation of these results, and especially of the effect size, from other research groups is warranted. (Source: Dental Technology Blog)

A Better Cervical Collar: Old Myths and New Realities
Cervical immobilization has long been considered an essential first step in addressing trauma patients. For forty years, there has been controversy over risk/benefits of a semi-rigid collar. Some studies have even suggested that collars can even be omitted as long as patients are immobilized until arrival at an ED or trauma center. Because radiologists have the final say in diagnosing normal vs fracture of cervical spine, we were asked to undertake a study to find the best solution for cervical immobilization. To address this controversy, we used state of the art radiology techniques in assessing jugular venous return and ...
