If you have ever had a dental crow, you know that the whole ordeal takes time. You have impressions made, a temporary cap, and a wait while the lab produces your permanent crown.
But wait- there is an solution to make the whole procedure more efficient.
A new system is being used by a handful of dentists to scan patients’ teeth and create crowns for them while they wait. A process that normally takes two weeks, now only takes an hour.
Researchers are developing a method to replace missing teeth with new bioengineered teeth generated from a person’s own gum cells.
People who keep their teeth and gums healthy with regular brushing may have a lower risk of developing dementia later in life, according to a U.S. study.
Researchers at the University of California who followed nearly 5,500 elderly people over an 18-year-period found that those who reported brushing their teeth less than once a day were up to 65 percent more likely to develop dementia than those who brushed daily.
