In clinical news this week, kids may have bad breath for many reasons, including diet, lack of oral care, and others. Now researchers have identified that an increase in the activity of a specific salivary enzyme, β-galactosidases, also is a culprit. These findings may help you better understand bad breath and how it can be treated.

Finally, a new review concludes that a zirconia implant may look better than a titanium one, but research has yet to show that it is a suitable alternative. This doesn't mean you shouldn't use these implants, however. A high rate of success is possible if you thoroughly plan and choose the appropriate patients for the treatment, the review author noted.
