Your Teeth on drugs!
Methamphetamine Use and Oral Health (Meth Mouth)
Dental health care professionals should be aware that methamphetamine use is on the rise in the U.S. The allure of this drug is that it is cheap, easy to make and the high lasts much longer than crack cocaine (12 hours versus one hour for cocaine). As well as being a potent central nervous system stimulant that can cause permanent brain damage, methamphetamine use has also been associated with severe oral health effects. Dental professionals should be aware of methamphetamineâ€™s oral health effects and the treatment considerations for users of this drug.

SAN FRANCISCO - It has all the makings of California's next multibillion-dollar taxpayer headache.
New accounting rules require public agencies to disclose the future cost of health care and other benefits _ such as dental, vision and life insurance _ promised to retirees alongside traditional pensions.
In California, half the state's employees have reached retirement age or will become eligible to retire within a decade. And the death of a retiree doesn't always reduce expenses because many agencies continue providing benefits to survivors.
MORE THAN 650-THOUSAND DOLLARS IN FREE CARE WAS PROVIDED AT THE HEARTLAND EVENT CENTER AT FONNER PARK. SERVICES RANGING FROM TEETH CLEANINGS TO TOOTH EXTRACTIONS WERE PROVIDED.
Now that gets a big WOW!
May we soon see such miracles in Los Angeles, CA
