BIRMINGHAM, Ala., USA: There is a recommendation for children to have a dental visit by 6 months of age, but there is insufficient evidence of improved outcomes or whether primary care providers can deliver it. A study conducted at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health investigated whether early preventive dental care reduces caries-related treatment and whether provider matters. It found that children who received early preventive care visits from dentists were more likely to have subsequent dental care, including caries-related treatment, and greater expenditures than children without preventive dental care.

ANN ARBOR, Mich., USA: Unavoidable vibrations, such as those on airplanes, cause objects with rigid structures, including flight computers, beams, chassis and motherboards, to age and crack. These could be designed more like tooth enamel to withstand repeated stresses without damage, according to researchers at the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan. They replicated the structure of enamel by sequential growth of zinc oxide nanowire carpets, followed by layer-by-layer deposition of a polymeric matrix around these.

ADDE considers the agreement on the EU medical device regulation a good compromise. With the new rules, the European level of safety in medicine and dentistry will be raised to a higher standard. However, the regulation could jeopardise existing relationships between producers and distributors, if manufacturers are not able to meet the required quality and safety standards. Dental dealers would then be forced to work with other producers, which could have an impact on pricing and products.
