5 Lessons I Learned From My Kids About Grieving
I’ve been a widow for precisely 70 days now. Grief is a weird emotion. Most days you function just fine, and then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, you hit an icy patch and keep falling down no matter how hard you try to stand up. Much of what I’ve learned about grief has come from watching my two teenagers deal with it. For example: 1. Sometimes you just have to hit life’s pause button. For the first time ever, I committed what I regard as one of the cardinal sins of parenting: I let my son stay home from school when he wasn’t really sick. He didn’t have a fever, or even the sniffles, but he w...

The impact of financial incentives on dental x-rays
AbstractThis paper assesses the impact of dentist remuneration on the incidence of potentially harmful dental x-rays. We use unique panel data which provide details of 1.3 million treatment claims byScottish NHS dentists made between 1998 and 2007. Controlling for unobserved heterogeneity of both patients and dentists we estimate a series of fixed-effects models that are informed by a theoretical model of x-ray delivery and identify the effects on dental x-raying of dentists moving from a fixed salary to fee-for-service and patients moving from co-payment to exemption. We establish that there are significant increases in x...

But here’s the reality: Therapy is an incredibly useful tool that helps with a range of issues, from anxiety to sleep to relationships to trauma.

[Perspective] Time for nonaddictive relief of pain
Much has been written recently about the prevalence of chronic pain (1), the dramatic increase in opioid prescriptions in the United States over the past 15 years, the concomitant rise in opioid dependency and addiction, and the quadrupling of deaths from opioid abuse. Although indispensable for managing acute severe traumatic pain and pain in a palliative setting, most opioids are prescribed either by dentists or by primary practitioners for chronic nonmalignant pain, and marketed aggressively to consumers for the latter, despite no scientific evidence supporting such treatment beyond 12 weeks (1). On the contrary, chroni...

'Tooth loss link to increased risk of dementia'
Conclusion This study adds to the evidence that good oral health is linked to good overall health, including a reduction in the chances of developing dementia in later life. But the research doesn't prove that regular tooth brushing will prevent dementia. We don't know what causes dementia. From research so far, it looks as if there are a number of interlinked causes. Brain health and ageing are likely to be affected by factors including diet, exercise, smoking, alcohol use, blood pressure and genetics. While living a healthy lifestyle may certainly reduce the chances of dementia, there are no guarantees. This study ha...
