By Mark Ladd, Associated Press A former head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found a way to speed up the process of clearing the teeth of cavities.
Dr. Robert Ladd told The Associated Press his technique would save millions of dollars by reducing the time needed for dental care and by cutting down on the number of treatments needed to prevent cavities in people with dementia.
Dr Ladd started working with dentists more than 30 years ago to treat cavities and improve their appearance, particularly around the gum line.
He was trained by his wife, who was a clinical dentist in a medical facility in New Jersey.
DrLadd said his technique, called cavatorrhea, removes the teeth from the jaw and the gums and places them into a bag, where they are then immersed in a solution.
Then, the toothpaste and other materials are mixed with water and air, and the mixture is pushed into the mouth, where the solution will remove the dental plaque.
The toothpaste also is injected into the gingival line to prevent the gum from developing a cavity.
Dr, Ladd said the process has been proven to reduce cavities, improve the appearance of teeth and prevent other health problems.
Dr Paula Dix, an oral surgeon at the University of Minnesota Health Sciences Center in Minneapolis, said Dr. Ladd is the first to have found a method to speed the process.
She said his method is not without its problems.
She said she had never heard of any person using this technique, but said it could be a major benefit for some patients.
Dr Dix said she and other patients who have had cavities would have to wait up to a year to have them removed, and that could take more time for some.
DrDix said it is not possible to treat all cavities at once.
She also said she believes it is unlikely that Dr Ladd will find a way of reducing the number in the United States.
She also said some people with the condition can experience a decrease in their ability to move around and talk.
Dr David W. Kao, a professor of medicine at the New York University School of Medicine, said it would be a good thing to see more research on Dr Laddon’s technique.
He said some patients may be able to see improvement in their dental care, but the results would be small.
Dr Kao said the research needed to be done to see if Dr Lack’s method could work in people who are already suffering from cavities that they can’t clear with traditional treatments.
He said he hopes Dr Laid’s technique will be a new treatment option for some people.
Dr Andrew L. Johnson, a researcher at the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, said some of his colleagues had used this procedure in patients with other diseases, such as stroke.
He has seen some improvement in patients who were already having trouble with their teeth, and said that the results are very promising.
