STOCKHOLM, Sweden: Understanding of cell types and the mechanisms of dental growth is essential for the reconstruction and engineering of teeth. Therefore, researchers from Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm have investigated the cellular composition of growing and non-growing mouse and human teeth. They believe that the new data on the cellular make-up and growth of teeth could accelerate developments in regenerative dentistry and in the treatment of tooth sensitivity.
MADISON, Wis., U.S.: Various studies have previously suggested that there is a link between poor oral health and the occurrence of inflammatory diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and strokes. Since inflammation plays an important role in atherosclerosis and can accurately be measured by high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), researchers have recently investigated the effectiveness of Plaque HD toothpaste and reported that it significantly reduces hs-CRP levels in subjects with baseline elevations.
