Taking Concussions Head-On: Part II
Recognizing the Breadth of the Problem and the Search for Answers Previously, I discussed the serious issue of concussions in sports - at all levels - and some of the efforts being pursued to combat it. Much is being done, but one simple and effective path bears further exploration. There may be reason to believe that the secret to diagnosing a concussion could reside in our saliva, offering for the first time an avenue to quickly and accurately provide a definitive diagnosis. Developing a Spit Test Long regarded as the sole domain of the dentist, the medical community in recent years has begun to recognize the mouth as a...

British public's satisfaction with the NHS falls by five percentage points
9 February 2016 The British Social Attitudes (BSA) survey for 2015 reports a five percentage point fall in satisfaction with the National Health Service compared to 2014, data published today by The King's Fund shows. The public's satisfaction with the health service fell to 60 per cent in 2015. While satisfaction is still high by historical standards, it is now nine percentage points below its peak of 70 per cent in 2010. Dissatisfaction with the NHS increased by eight percentage points to 23 per cent in 2015, the largest single-year increase since the survey began in 1983, taking it back to the l...

Do You Feel the Need for Speed?
"I'd like to wear my braces just a few more months." -- said No One Time... it's the No. 1 obstacle to orthodontic treatment for adults and teens. Moving the hardest element in our body (a tooth) within the second hardest tissue in our body (bone) can be a slow process because orthodontic treatment has a biological speed limit; the bone around teeth needs to soften and harden in a slow, orderly fashion as the teeth move. Today, with state-of-the-art technology, wearing braces may not necessarily even be a two-year commitment. Recent advances in orthodontics reduce treatment time 30-50 percent. Besides taking up your...

Bad News For Seltzer Lovers: It’s Not As Healthy As You Think
Drinking seltzer is not the same as drinking water. In an article that devastated HuffPost's bubbly water enthusiasts, The Atlantic reported Monday that even unflavored carbonated water can have damaging effects on oral health.  Fizzy water's only mainstay ingredient besides water is carbonic acid, which gives the beverage its bubbles but can weaken tooth enamel over time.  The good news? Sparkling water is still a better choice than both diet and regular flavored sodas, which are associated with obesity and diabetes.  Even for enamel erosion, plain soda water is still a better choice than "real" ...

What Are Risk Factors for Latex Allergy?
Discussion Latex comes from the Hevea brasiliensis plants. There are multiple potentially allergenic polypeptides within the plant’s fluid called Heb b 1-13. True sensitizers are Heb b 1, 5 and 6. Heb b 8 and 12 are cross-reacting proteins. The type of the latex product and how it is prepared makes a difference in exposure to the latex allergens. Certain extruded latex products such as catheters and rubber stoppers have higher concentrations of true sensitizer allergens. Products made from molds such as gloves have higher concentrations of potential allergens than latex made in sheets such as such as dental dams. Use...
