It seems like the toothbrush has long been a favourite of dentists, but it seems there’s a new dental product that is causing some problems for the public.
The latest news to emerge is that the brand name tooth absinthe has been linked to more than a dozen deaths, including those of five people, in Australia.
It is claimed that the tooth absin is linked to up to a 30 per cent increase in abscesses in people over the age of 40, and in some cases people who have had dental procedures with absinthes have suffered the condition.
There has been a recent push to ban tooth absints in the US, which led to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) baning the products on February 13.
The tooth absincet has been around since the 1800s and was originally created to help prevent tooth decay.
In the United States, it is now being used as a treatment for dental caries, which can be caused by a variety of environmental factors.
However, in the past two years, it has been implicated in at least three deaths in Australia and the United Kingdom.
While there are still more studies to be done, there is one thing for certain: the tooth tooth absinth has been one of the most common health issues for a long time.
What is tooth absen?
The term tooth absence comes from the Latin absint-, which means absent.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 70 per cent of people who suffer from dental carious diseases die from the condition, and about 60 per cent have symptoms.
Dental absences are caused by the removal of the plaque that forms around teeth, but the cause is unknown.
