Baxter Lewisburg Local Dentists Say: March Is Designated Childrens' Denistry Month Editor's Note: March is Na- tional Children's Dental Health Month. The following article was submitted by Mrs Daniel W. Nun- ley regarding the observation of dental health month. Over forty years of progress in dentistry has resulted in dramatic improvements in the oral health of Americans and enormous savings on dental health care costs accord- ing to the Greenbrier Valley Dental Society. Scientific breakthroughs, improved dental equipment and techniques, and increased cŁn- sumer information efforts are re- sponsible for these benefits. Follow- ing are among the innovations which have marked the past four decades and some directions for the future, provided by the American Dental Association. Fluoride is considered to be the single most effective weapon against tooth decay. In 1948, the mineral was proved to prevent cavi- ties by strengthening tooth enamel. Now it is available in toothpastes, mouth rinses, tablets, topical appli- cations and fluoridated water sup- plies. Today, about 60 per cent of Americans drink fluoridated water and half of school-age children have never had a cavity. Currently, scien- tists are researching a time-release fluoride pellet which would bond to a tooth and allow continuous absorp- tion of fluoride over six months. -- similar to vaccines against measles, mumps, and polio. Sealants are additional preven- tive measures that were created in the early 1970s and are strongly recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA)• Sealants are plastic coatings applied to the tooth's chewing surfaces to fill microscopic pits and fissures in children's developing permanent molars. Recently, sealants have been combined with time-release fluoride to strengthen tooth enamel and remineralize areas which show early signs of decay. High Speea Orms nave been im- portant innovations in dentistry, and when coupled with fast-acting anes- thetics, have removed the pain, and accompanying fear, of a trip to the dentist. In 1950, ball-bearing hand- pieces reached speeds up to 50,000 revolutions per minute (r.p.m.). Then air-driven turbine drills were intro- duced in 1957 which reached 300,000 r.p.m. Today's drills make quick work of decay, reaching speeds of 800,000 r.p.m. There are also chemical compounds which can dissolve small areas of decay now in use in a few dental offices. Lasers may replace drills in the future. Ex- perimentally, concentrated laser beams are being used to eradicate decay, smooth pits and fissures, and clean root canals.
