Investigators Chart Microbial Ecology of Gingivitis, Periodontitis

Gingivitis, a common and mild form of gum disease can progress to periodontitis, a more serious infection that damages the soft tissue of the gums and sometimes even destroys the bone supporting the teeth. An international team of researchers and clinicians has charted the microbial ecology of the mouth at all stages of this progression, in nearly 1,000 women in Malawi. This work is laying a foundation of knowledge that could lead to better oral health. The research is published August 12 in Applied and Environmental Microbiology, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology.

Vitamin D: Hundreds of Years Later, Teeth Tell the Story of What Happened to People Who Didn’t Get Enough Sunshine

Researchers at McMaster University have found a rich new record of vitamin D deficiency, one that resides in the teeth of every person and remains viable for hundreds of years or more. The team of anthropologists has determined that looking into the microscopic structure of teeth opens a window into the lives and challenges of people who lived hundreds of years ago, and whose only record is their skeletal remains.

Gene therapy is emerging as an exciting alternative to opioids for the treatment of cancer pain. The NYU researchers seek to alleviate oral cancer pain by reversing epigenetic changes, and using gene therapy, set the stage for a new class of medicines that selectively disrupt nociceptive signaling with fewer off-target effects.
