  Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) March 27, 2015       Princeview Dental (http://www.PrinceviewDental.com), one of Etobicoke's premier dental clinics, is weighing in on a new study on factors that may predict severe pain in root canals for patients.           The Journal of Dental Research just put out a study in which it's claimed that certain patient characteristics can determine whether or not they will experience extreme pain during a root canal. According to the study, the four factors the study assumed would best predict postoperative root canal pain were a diagnosis of symptomatic apical periodontitis, the intensity of pre-treatment pain, pain being made worse by stress, and the number of days that pain kept the patient from their usual activities.

Counties Ranked on Wellness ; Health Data Will Guide Outreach

West Lebanon - Upper Valley public health officials say an annual ranking of the health status of each county in the United States will help guide them as they create action plans to address the challenges area communities face.

The 2015 County Health Rankings released Wednesday by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is one of several reports utilized by public health officials to evaluate existing health systems and plot steps for the future.

"I think these are good because they tell us where we need to work," said Dr. Robert Greene, chief population health management officer at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

The report includes two categories of rankings for counties in each state : health outcomes, including the length and quality of life, and health factors, including health behaviors, health care, social and economic factors, and the environment.

Putting the bite on 'traditional' dentists

Following HIV cross-contamination in Battambang, traditional dentistry practices are under increased scrutiny

A sign featuring a large tooth hangs outside the shophouse where, for the past eight years, Lim Kim Hout has been practising dentistry - but no university degrees hang on his walls.

"I didnt go to school; I just learned dentistry from my teacher," Hout reluctantly admitted this week at his small, grimy clinic near Koralanh Market, a few kilometres from Siem Reap. "I took all his lessons and then started my own practice.

Hout sees one or two patients a day, he said, and cleans his instruments after each, but when asked to reveal what sterilisation method he used, he refused - "No, no, no" - and would not say why.

Patients risk much more than botched tooth extractions by going to these so-called "traditional dentists": If instruments contaminated with blood and saliva are not properly sterilised, health experts warn they could pass on infectious and possibly life-threatening diseases.
