Dr. Ralph Attanasi; Distinction: President of the Florida Dental Association; Place of business: Delray Beach

By Mary Thurwachter

When patients look up at Dr. Ralph Attanasi's glistening grin, they shouldn't assume the dentist was born with a perfect set of pearly whites. He can empathize with patients because he himself has endured his share of dental work over the years, from root canal to crowns and gum work, too.

AMALGAM TOOTH FILLINGS ARE SAFE

Toxin lurks in teeth - July 23

This article greatly misleads readers about the safety and effectiveness of dental amalgam fillings.

Dental amalgam is an alloy - it is a combination of metals including mercury, silver, copper and tin - that has entirely different chemical properties than mercury alone. These fillings have been used for more than a century to save hundreds of millions of teeth that otherwise may have been lost to dental decay.

Claims that mercury in dental fillings may cause health problems may grab headlines, but they simply aren't supported by credible, peer-reviewed studies published in scientific journals. The Multiple Sclerosis Society, the Autism Society of America, Mayo Clinic and the World Health Organization are all on record as saying there is no scientific evidence that dental amalgam causes the diseases they are committed to curing.

United States: Texas To Require Registration Of Dental Support Organizations

On June 14, 2015, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed into law Senate Bill No. 519, which imposes new registration requirements on dental support organizations ("DSOs"). The DSO business model is built around the provision of nonclinical services to dentists and their practices, such as administrative and financial management services, and therefore is not directly regulated by the State Board of Dental Examiners (the "Board"). While the new law does not grant the Board regulatory authority over DSOs or limit the services DSOs may provide, it does permit the Board to monitor their activities in an effort to increase transparency and strengthen the Board's ability to assess DSOs' impact on the practice of dentistry in Texas.

Specifically, the law requires all DSOs to register annually with the Secretary of State and pay a fee. Registration with the Secretary of State is due by January 31 every year, or for an entity first qualifying as a DSO in any year after January 31, within 90 days of qualification. The DSO also is required to file a corrected registration each quarter as necessary. The law takes effect September 1, 2015, but does not require registration before February 1, 2016.

This WON'T HURT a bitHow 3-D scanners are speeding up messy tooth restoration process

Amaka Uchegbu

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette/TNS

PITTSBURGH

Most people dread going to the dentist to get a crown on one of their teeth.

The procedure can be long, tedious and often uncomfortable. Once in the chair, patients must bite down on a putty-like material – which can trigger the gag reflex – to create an impression of their teeth. Patients must wear temporary crowns for a few weeks until their permanent crowns have been made from the impressions, sometimes returning to the office for corrections if one falls out or is uncomfortable.

Traditionally, crown fittings take three weeks and multiple visits to the dentist to complete. These permanent tooth-shaped "caps" – made of durable material such as steel, porcelain or ceramic – are put on to protect a weak tooth, restore a broken tooth, cover and support a tooth with a large filling, or serve other uses.
