COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT: Progress on Economic ...

Dear Mr. Chairman: In August 1993, the Congress authorized the 10-year Empowerment Zone and Enterprise Community program to help selected distressed communities develop comprehensive approaches for dealing with their social and economic problems. In December 1994, over 100 communities were designated as federal empowerment zones and enterprise communities. These communities will receive about $1 billion in federal grants, as well as tax benefits for certain businesses located in the communities.1 In 1997, the Congress authorized the designation of 22 additional empowerment zones, 2 of which—Los Angeles and Cleveland—the administration has already designated. In addition, Members of the Congress have introduced legislative proposals to further extend this program or provide for similar programs.2 To learn how the program is working, you asked us to (1) examine the progress made by the federal empowerment zones in implementing the program, (2) describe the steps taken by the two responsible federal agencies—the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)—to monitor and evaluate the existing zones’ progress, and (3) describe the status of steps to designate the second group of empowerment zones. This report focuses on six zones that we visited—three urban (Atlanta, Baltimore, and New York City) and three rural (the Rio Grande Valley, the Kentucky Highlands, and the Mississippi Mid-Delta) empowerment zones, all of which were designated in 1994. As agreed with your office, the report focuses on the empowerment zones’ progress in implementing economic development activities.

Tooth Whitening/Bleaching - American Dental Association

Over the past two decades, tooth whitening or bleaching has become one of the most popular esthetic dental treatments (Note: this paper uses the terms "whitening" and “bleaching," interchangeably). Since the 1800s, the initial focus of dentists in this area was on in-office bleaching of non-vital teeth that had discolored as a result of trauma to the tooth or from endodontic treatment. By the late 1980s, the field of tooth whitening dramatically changed with the development of dentist-prescribed, home-applied bleaching (tray bleaching) and other products and techniques for vital tooth bleaching that could be applied both in the dental office and at home. The tooth whitening market has evolved into four categories: professionally applied (in the dental office); dentist-prescribed/dispensed (patient home-use); consumerpurchased/over-the-counter (OTC) (applied by patients); and other non-dental options. Additionally, dentist-dispensed bleaching materials are sometimes used at home after dental office bleaching to maintain or improve whitening results. Consumer whitening products available today for home use include gels, rinses, chewing gums, toothpastes, paint-on films and strips. The latest tooth whitening trend is the availability of whitening treatments or kits in non-dental retail settings, such as mall kiosks, salons, spas and, more recently, aboard passenger cruise ships. Nondental whitening venues have come under scrutiny in several states and jurisdictions, resulting in actions to reserve the delivery of this service to dentists or appropriately supervised allied dental personnel.

New Advances in Tooth Whitening and Dental ... - IneedCE.com

People have desired whiter and cleaner teeth throughout history. Current technology is designed to remove extrinsic and/or intrinsic stains depending on the specifics of the formulation and technique. Intrinsic staining is removed using carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. Toothwhitening can be achieved in-office or using a take-home or over-the-counter product. Toothwhitening gel utilizing aqueous cleaning technology, used as a pre-treatment, has demonstrated the ability to reduce the treatment time and as a pre-treatment and whitener to reduce sensitivity experienced during toothwhitening. Throughout history, people have devised ways to clean and whiten teeth. The earliest method, used as early as 5,000 years ago, utilized a primitive toothbrush-like tool, a sarwak, made by chewing on one end of a twig and fashioning it into a brush-like structure. Two thousand years ago, various tooth-cleaning formulations were used that included eggshells, ground bone, and ground seashells as the primary cleaning ingredients. At the beginning of the early industrial age, there was a switch to a greater reliance on charcoal, sand, and salt. In fact, hydrated silica (a refined derivative of sand) and calcium carbonate (a refined chalk) are still commonly used today as the primary cleaning agents in dentifrices. The primary ingredients in modern tooth bleaching agents were reported to be effective, and were in use, more than a century ago.1 These preparations included ingredients that were either analogs of hydrogen peroxide, other strong oxidizers, or acid. Today, more adults are retaining their teeth, as dental caries has declined due partly to the inclusion of fluoride in toothpastes. Periodontal disease treatment is now being addressed by a variety of therapeutic ingredients added into an increasing number of preparations. Moreover, dental science has evolved during the same time period, with dental implants, veneers, and other sophisticated cosmetic restorative materials commonly available. All these have spurred on even greater interest and demand for oral...

Informed Consent for Tooth Whitening Treatment - Robin K. Siman ...

This information has been given to me so that I can make an informed decision about having my teeth whitened. I may take as much time as I wish to make my decision about signing this informed consent form. I have the right to ask questions about any procedure before agreeing to undergo the procedure. My dentist has informed me that my teeth are discolored and could be treated by in-office whitening (also known as “bleaching”) of my teeth. In-office tooth whitening is a procedure designed to lighten the color of my teeth using a hydrogen peroxide gel. During the procedure, the whitening gel will be applied to my teeth for three (3), 15minute sessions. During the entire treatment, a plastic retractor will be placed in my mouth to help keep it open and the soft tissues of my mouth (i.e., my lips, gums, cheeks and tongue) will be covered to ensure they are not exposed to the gel. Lip balm may also be applied as needed and I will be provided eye protection. After the treatment is completed, the retractor and all gel and tissue coverings will be removed from my mouth. Before and after the treatment, the shade of my upper-front teeth will be assessed and recorded. I understand I may not decide not to have any treatment at all. However, should I decide to undergo the treatment, I understand there are alternative treatments for whitening my teeth for which my dentist can provide me additional information. These treatments include: Whitening Toothpastes/Gels Take-Home Whitening Kits Other In- office Whitening Treatments.

Tooth Whitening Systems

Why do my teeth have stains and discolorations? Most stains are caused by age, tobacco, coffee, or tea. Other types of stains can be caused by antibiotics, such as tetracycline; or too much fluoride. What treatments are used for stained teeth? Ask your oral health care professional about tooth-whitening options. They include a number of over-the-counter whitening systems, whitening toothpastes, and the latest hightech option--laser tooth whitening. For maximum whitening, experts agree that peroxide is usually the way to go. Supervised bleaching procedures that are done in-office and at-home have become among the most popular treatment options. In some cases, the procedure is performed entirely in the office, using a light or heat source to speed up the bleaching process. In other cases, an oral health care professional gets the procedure started during an office visit and then gives you what you need to complete it at home. Still another popular procedure is one that you complete entirely at home. At-home procedures, sometimes called nightguard vital bleaching, consist of placing a bleaching solution, usually a peroxide mixture, in a tray (nightguard) that has been custom fitted for your mouth by an oral health care professional. The bleaching solutions may vary in potency and may be worn for an hour, or throughout the night. Your oral health care professional can advise you on the appropriate type of application and the length of time needed to whiten your teeth, based on the severity of tooth discoloration and your specific needs.
