The dentist replies "Sure you will!"
The patient replies "Great, I couldn't play a note before!"

VIDEO OF THE MONTH

 

New species of Oral Bacteria -Prevotella histicola (June 2008 Issue)

International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology reported a publication by Professor William Wade from King's College London Dental Institute.These bacteria were found in both normal and carcinogenic oral cavities. Prevotella Histicola are anaerobic, variably pigmenting, Gram-negative saccharolytic bacilli producing acetic acid & succinic acid as major end products of fermentation and trace to minor amounts of isovaleric acid and lactic acid. The paper has been published by Julia Downes and William wade of King's College London Dental Institute at Guy's, King's College and St Thomas' Hospitals, Infection Research Group, London & Samuel J. Hooper & Melanie J. Wilson of Cardiff University School of Dentistry.

                                         

 

 

 

 

 

Indian researchers make a breakthrough research in caries detection (July Issue)

  Indian Computer Engineers are for long time known to make the backbone of the world IT industry.This time the Indian researchers have made caries detection more easier in a breakthrough technology integrating the radiographic imaging and Information technology. In the South India is  RMK Engineering college , in the state of Tamil Nadu .

 

Taiwan’s first tooth bank opened (August 2008 Issue)
 

The First Tooth Bank was opened  by Taipei Medical university in cooperation with the Hiroshima University in Japan.The tooth bank will be a source of harvesting stem cells . The teeth may be stored with the intention of preserving them for transplantation purposes. Hiroshima University’s own tooth bank has seen a success rate of 87 percent for implanting natural teeth. The extracted tooth can be preserved upto 40 years  @ minus 130ºC to minus 196ºC  ,at a price of 40,000NT$/2years.

 

 

Oral health history used in heart screens(september 2008 Issue)

              

   U. S . Scientists In a report published in American Journal Of Cardiology advised that oral history may be helpful in detecting the cardiac diseases.Oral history may be helpful in diagnosing a lot many systemic problems like caridac and diabetes as the initial symptims appear first in the mouth .

Life Of Composite Restorations Dependent On Inhibition Of Matrix Metalloproteinases

(December 2008)

                     Professor Leo Tjдderhane of the Department of Pedodontics, Cardiology and Endodontology at the

University of  Oulu, with a worldwide team of doctors and with the financial aid from Univ. Of Finland has made a

study. This study says that the life of composite restoration is reduced due to the loss of collagen from the

 dentin which in  turn is due to the release if matrix metalloproteinases present in the oral tissues. Application

 of Chlorhexidine  has proven to prevent the release of matrix metalloproteinases. Infact this study may suggest

a crucial role of the matrix metalloproteinases in the dental decay . So as it stands now the study gives the

 inference that application of Chlorhexidine improves the boding o Composite-dentin interface by preventing or

 reducing the release of matrix matalloproteinases.

Ctip2 gene - regulates the growth of Enamel - A finding that could change our practices

(Feb 2009 Issue)

                                                   Ctip2 plays a role in immune response, as well as Dermatological and Nervous development was already known and its role in enamel growth was recently found in the University Of Oregon , where they bred mice which lacked the Ctip2 gene found that the mice lacked Enamel.For years scientists have been trying to grow ameloblasts. This finding may help in future for possibly replacement of lost Enamel.This finding has laid the foundation for the future stem cell research in Enamel growth.

Professor Chrissa Kioussi, professor of Pharmacology , the  author of the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences .
