New post for those that experience fear of the dentist
 
Dental anxiety is more than just an uncomfortable perception of dentistry. Many avoid the dentist because they expect pain. Yet the longer they wait, the more likely it becomes that the visit will be filled with anxiety and discomfort. So it's important to get dental treatment that addresses your anxiety now, before it worsens or you begin to suffer serious health consequences.

Wonderful advances in Dental Sciences
 
Harvard led scientists repair teeth with low level laser therapy
Teeth don't grow back, as your dentist might like to remind you while revving up the drill for a root canal. But scientists have now found a way to regenerate dentin, the hard stuff in the middle of the tooth, right in the mouth. It’s surprisingly simple too — all it takes is a blast of laser.

In a study published in Science Translational Medicine, a Harvard-led team lays out how a low-power laser can trigger stem cells in the tooth to form dentin. Currently, damaged dentin is replaced with synthetic material, like when you get a filling or a root canal.

A blast of laser induces reactive oxygen species, which are chemically active molecules that then activate a growth factor to stimulate dentin growth.Although studies have regenerated parts of a tooth from stem cells in a petri dish before, the laser procedure can happen right in the month. This study’s authors got it to work in tiny rodent teeth, and now they're continuing onto human clinical trials in hope it could someday replace some current dental procedures.

Introduction
Gregg is a fifth generation Texan and grew up in the Houston area where he attended high school and excelled in the study of arts and sciences. Gregg attended The University of Texas and gravitated toward the health care curriculum. He decided to continue on this path to become a dentist. In 1994, Gregg graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, as a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS). Dr. Ueckert is known for his unbelievable high standards and quality when it comes to dental implants, dentures and neuromuscular dentistry.
Bragging rights
Dr. Ueckert has also received advanced training through Dr. Clayton Chan’s pioneering Center of GNeuromuscular Dentistry & Orthopedic Occlusal Advancement, Occlusion Connections. The sophisticated understanding of Craniomandibular Orthopedics achieved by studying directly under Dr. Chan’s guidance has made Dr. Ueckert the top Neuromuscular Specialist in all of Texas. He was a past member of the 10th District Dental Society’s peer review committee and is active in his mentoring program for pre-dental students.
