Some individuals who may be predisposed to having gum disease may need to return for regular periodontal maintenance cleanings, and others may be able to return to a regular hygiene routine and 6-month dental checkup visits.
… This is the case even for a population of users of the dental care system with a relatively high level of dental health and in a society with small differences between rich and poor, and with relatively high public spending on social welfare. This corresponds to the speculations  as to whether it is possible to completely eliminate social inequality and by , who conclude that dental care service systems cannot handle the underlying causes of oral disease. However, Phelan states that even though social conditions are a fundamental cause of inequality in health and medical advances tend to increase social inequality, there is good reason to work on reducing the collective burden of disease and at the same time work on reducing social inequality . …

There is no direct evidence that screening by primary care clinicians reduces early childhood caries. Evidence previously reviewed by the US Preventive Services Task Force found oral fluoride supplementation effective at reducing caries incidence, and new evidence supports the effectiveness of fluoride varnish in higher-risk children.

One of the most painful weaknesses of the health care system is its failure to provide care of equal quality to everyone, regardless of race, age, gender, ethnicity, income, geographic location, or any other demographic detail. That’s why equity is one of the “Aims for Improvement” in the Institute of Medicine’s 2001 report, Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century, which describes the immense divide between what we know to be good health care and the health care that people actually receive.

The merchandise that was sold to me recently was a counterfeit. I called Braun because the toothbrush was not sitting properly on the brush and was moving in a strange kind of agitation. The brush head came off the brush while I was brushing. Braun customer service told me to attempt scratch the Oralb Logo with my nail and it scratched. The logo on the authentic brushes doesn’t get scratched. The real toothbrush by Braun, the whole toothbrush is protected by a glossy substance which didn’t allow me to scratch the logo. I will be asking Amazon for a refund and will stop my subscription. Very sad to see a trusted vendor go bad. Again, previous brushes were authentic. These ones are not. See pictures for the side to side comparison of the authentic and counterfeit brushes.
Applying composite tooth bonding is a restorative procedure that uses tooth enamel-coloured composite resin (plastic) to repair teeth that are decayed, chipped, fractured or discoloured.

This being said, it seems like they are several similar toothbrushes on the market now, same price range, and I just happened to pick this one in part because of the color. Some seems to be the same manufacturing with a different logo, I am not sure…
Get a new toothbrush head after you’ve been sick. If you’re getting over a cold or other infection, it’s wise to replace your toothbrush head each time. Germs can linger in the bristles and cause you to become sick again. Similarly, if your brush head has been exposed to some serious dirt or germs, like a toilet or a filthy sink, replace it immediately.
The designs of these brushes are fairly similar. Each of these brushes features a power button on their faceplates, as well as an arrow key that allows you to shift between the different brushing modes. The Oral-B 6000 also features sensor ring near where the brush head attaches to the handle that will light up in the event that you brush too hard. The pressure sensor with the LED light on the 5000 and the 7000 is a little bit less obviously located in the back part of the brush near where the brush head and handle are joined.
OK everyone, let’s all just calm down. There was a lot of rage in the press this past weekend and I think we all need to take a deep breath. First, Serena Williams lost her cool at the U.S. Open on Saturday when a match official called her on a foot fault. Then at Sunday’s […]

At about 4.5 ounces, the Philips Sonicare 2 is easy to use and comfortable to hold. It arrived with a bit of a charge, but the manufacturer still recommends an overnight charge before use. Fully charged, it will run for two weeks. As with most of its rivals, its warranty lasts two years. While there are many brush heads in the Philips range, only one comes with the Sonicare 2. Blue “reminder bristles” change to white as they wear down. This color change serves as a reminder to replace the head, and we think it’s an excellent feature.
