Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson Talks ‘Cosmos,’ the Tooth Fairy and Space at SXSW on Flickr.Science literacy is not a body of knowledge, but rather an exploration, Tyson said in the March 8 presentation to a packed auditorium of over 400 SXSW fans.
“I don’t want to hand out answers,” he said. “When you explore, all those answers come for free.”
Tyson sees everything as a teachable moment. 
For example, he encouraged his daughter to take a skeptical view of the Tooth Fairy. So his daughter and her classmates did an experiment to test whether the Tooth Fairy existed, putting their teeth under their pillows without telling their parents.

"It’s inappropriate in the 21st century given the make-up (and) the diversity of people within the Australian Dental Association," University of Queensland Professor Jenny Martin was quoted as saying.

Dr Boyd-Boland conceded the video sent “an inappropriate signal about the event” and he would be investigating who within the ADA was responsible for posting it.

The footage reportedly was filmed during a “Dentist Late Night” event at last year’s congress in Melbourne.

This condition, which occurs when there isn’t enough saliva in the mouth, can accelerate tooth decay. “It isn’t a disease in itself, but rather a symptom of some underlying and more concerning issue,” says Dr Nader. “It often results from certain drugs or medications, treatments for cancer, or from auto-immune diseases such as AIDS.”

Dehydration, nerve problems, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes are other significant medical conditions that can result in dry mouth.
