New study supports the effectiveness of the ForsythKids school-based dental program for reducing untreated tooth decay
(Forsyth Institute) In a longitudinal study published earlier this month in the Journal of the American Dental Association, researchers analyzed untreated decay in a cohort of nearly 7,000 children enrolled in the ForsythKids preventive dentistry program. Over the course of six years, the percentage of children with untreated cavities in the program decreased from 39 to 19 percent, suggesting that school-based prevention programs are effective in combating childhood dental disease.

Clinical Effect of Two Fluoride Varnishes in Caries-Active Preschool Children: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Caries Researchhttps://doi.org/10.1159/000514168 AbstractThe prevention of dental caries in preschool children is a priority for dental services. The aim of the study was to investigate the caries-preventive effect of 2 fluoride varnishes in caries-active preschool children, and then compare the outcome with a non-varnish control group. After screening, 180 preschool children aged 36 –71 months, with at least 1 noncavitated lesion, were enrolled and randomly allocated into 3 parallel groups, namely A: 1.5% ammonium fluoride varnish (Fluor Protector S), B: 5% NaF varnish (Duraphat), and C: professional tooth-clea...

Oral Health Should be a Development Priority
Photo by Bekky Bekks on Unsplash By Adekemi AdeniyanEKITI, Nigeria, Mar 19 2021 (IPS) The mouth is a barometer of social inequities — it reflects the injustices in our society. As George Cuvier, an 18th century naturalist said: “Show me your teeth, and I will tell you who you are”. To me, as a dentist, the mouth is like a microscope that reveals more than just tooth decay. It exposes us to a world where people lack access to water, health, quality education and live on low income. So, when the FDI World Dental Federation unveils a “Be Proud of Your Mouth” campaign for World Oral Health Day (W...

Featured Review: How often should you see your dentist for a check-up?
ConclusionsWhether adults see their dentist for a check-up every six months or at personalised intervals based on their dentist's assessment of their risk of dental disease does not affect tooth decay, gum disease, or well-being. Longer intervals (up to 24 months) between check-ups may not negatively affect these outcomes. Currently, there is not enough reliable evidence available about how often children and adolescents should see their dentist for a check-up.Read the full review Learn more about Cochrane Oral HealthRead the Cochrane Oral Health Editorial BlogThursday, October 15, 2020 (Source: Cochrane News and Events)

How Are Dental Abscesses Treated?
Discussion Dental caries are one of the most common infections. It is usually caused by Streptococcus viridans. Dental caries are also quite preventable with brushing the teeth at least twice a day with a fluoridated dentifrice, use of dental floss, and preventative dental appointments with application of fluoride varnish and sealants as appropriate. Additionally, fluoridation of the community water supply has significantly decreased dental caries and is a very effective public health measure. Fluoride binds within the dental matrix to strength it. Dental abscesses are usually caused by poor oral hygiene but others are at...
