Captain Ben Salomon

Just before Memorial Day, I wrote a “Noshes” column item about Capt. Ben Salomon, a Jewish dentist who was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor in 2002 for his heroism in World War II.

I noted that in November 2016, the American Friends of Dental Volunteers of Israel presented a special lecture honoring Salomon. The AVI, as the organization is known, is the sister organization of Dental Volunteers for Israel (DVI). Founded by the late Trudi Birger, DVI runs a free clinic for children in Israel.

My column item prompted Dr. Scott Dubowsky of Tenafly, a longtime Jewish Standard subscriber, to email the Standard. He thanked me for the item and told me he is a dentist and the president of AVI. We exchanged further letters and I came to realize that several personal stories, including Dr. Dubowsky’s, intertwined in what I came to think of as a remarkable chain of goodness.

Medications can cause serious dry mouth issues

April 24, 2017
Q&A
By C. CLAIBORNE RAY

Q. What is it about so many medications that causes dryness, especially in the mouth?

A. Dry mouth, also called xerostomia, is a frequent side effect of many commonly prescribed drugs, according to a 2015 review of research on treating dry mouth published in the journal Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management.

Among the common culprits in xerostomia are drugs like benzodiazepines, prescribed for their calming effect; antidepressants, particularly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors; some oral drugs used to reduce blood sugar; respiratory agents; quinine; some drugs used to treat high blood pressure, like calcium channel blockers and diuretics; drugs used to treat excess urination; some nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; opioids; glucosamine supplements; and magnesium hydroxide, a component of milk of magnesia.

Some of the drugs are prescribed for their drying effect, which may be magnified in older people if they are taking several of them.

Not all the drying mechanisms of the various drugs involved are fully understood. Some of them are known to suppress the action of receptors on nerve cells in various glands, including the salivary glands, that produce fluids.

These so-called anticholinergic drugs block the action of an important neurotransmitter called acetylcholine that normally binds to these special receptors to signal the glands to work.

The drying effect can also involve other mucus membranes, like those around the eyes and in the digestive system. question@nytimes.

BioActive fillings
Bioactive materials that are strong, esthetic and long-lasting offer an alternative to traditional composites, that are strong and esthetic but are passive and without bioactive potential materials, and to glass ionomers, that are bioactive but have poor esthetics and undesirable physical properties.

The development of bioactive materials is inspired by nature, where water is the source of life. In the oral cavity, saliva is the life source and is rich with water, proteins and ionic components.

Bioactive materials imitate nature and participate in this dynamic ionic exchange. They are water-based or contain zones or phases of water and continuously release and recharge their ionic components. They react to the changes in the oral environment to bring about advantageous changes in the properties of saliva and the materials themselves. This is often referred to as “smart” behavior.

ACTIVA BioACTIVE products are the first dental resins with a bioactive ionic resin matrix, shock-absorbing rubberized resin component, and reactive ionomer glass fillers that mimic the physical and chemical properties of natural teeth. These bioactive materials actively participate in the cycles of ionic exchange that regulate the natural chemistry of our teeth and saliva and contribute to the maintenance of tooth structure and oral health.
