A commonly held belief among the general public is orthodontic treatment will prevent future tooth decay. Research undertaken at the University of Adelaide has found that this is not the case.
Research led by the University of Plymouth and Technische Universität Dresden has identified a new therapeutic target for cancer treatment and tooth regeneration -- a protein called Prominin-1.
A new study could help states that will soon expand Medicaid, or may add a work requirement, understand what might be in store. Nearly half of enrollees in Michigan's expanded Medicaid felt their physical health improved; more than a third cited better mental or dental health. Over two-thirds of those with jobs said coverage helped them do better at work; those who said their health had improved were four times as likely to say this.
Women who experienced loss of all teeth had approximately 20 percent higher risk of developing hypertension during follow-up compared to women who still had natural teeth.
Discovery based on analysis of tissue and saliva samples from oral cancer patients shows a correlation between a signature comprising three peptides and the presence of lymph node metastasis.
A study published in the American Journal of Hypertension indicates that postmenopausal women who experience tooth loss are at higher risk of developing high blood pressure.
Sambaqui societies had sophisticated diet. Study suggests that hunter-gatherer communities living in coastal Atlantic Forest areas between 8,000 and 1,000 years ago consumed a range of plants and more carbohydrates than expected for the period and region.
Teens and young adults who receive their initial opioid prescriptions from their dentists or oral surgeons are at increased risk for opioid addiction in the following year, a study from the Stanford University School of Medicine has found.
An analysis of claims data for privately insured adolescents and young adults suggests initial exposure to opioids prescribed by dental providers may be associated with increased risk of subsequent opioid use and abuse. Dentists are a leading source of opioid prescriptions for children and adolescents. This observational study examined outpatient opioid prescriptions for patients 16 to 25 in 2015 because that's the common age when third molars show up and are extracted.
Researchers at Trinity College Dublin have developed a new data mapping method which improves the quality of dietary data collected by short frequency questionnaires (SFQs), thereby improving the capacity to identify diet-disease relationships.
