Another new use for Botox

Sat

Latest News

Nadia Sawalha spoke on Loose women this week of another new use for Botox. RAnother new use for Botoxecently, Botox has been attributed to treating many things other than wrinkles. This includes treating depression and curing migraines. However, now a new use has been brought to light. This revelation was discussed on the popular talk show by the resident panelist.

The celebrity spoke of having Botox in her teeth. However, what she actually meant was Botox in her jaw. This helps relax certain muscles that cause bruxism (unconscious grinding of the teeth). When Nadia learned that she could lose her teeth due to grinding she knew she needed to do something.

Dr Esho, an expert cosmetic doctor from E4’s Body Fixers spoke to Digital Spy. “Some people use specific mouth guards to combat this but Botox given in specific areas of the jaw (not the teeth) known to be used to chew (muscles of mastication) can help relieve the condition by weakening these muscles.” Botox saves the day again, which further proves its versatility and effectiveness.

Happy Birthday to Botox

Sun

Latest News

This week the world says Happy Birthday to Botox. Fifteen years agoHappy Birthday to Botox this week, Botox was officially approved for use in combatting wrinkles by the FDA (Food and Drugs Administration). When Botox was first used many people would hide the fact they had undergone the procedure. Now it seems people are becoming more open about it. Famous Botox Doctor, Dr. Jules Nabet was quoted in the Mirror. “My clientele includes models, actors and TV personalities, but I am in confidence with them. However, attitudes to Botox, in general, are changing and people don’t seem to think they need to hide the fact like they did 10 years ago.”

Although some celebrities try to hide that they have had Botox, others are very open about it. Celebs like Katie Price, Simon Cowell, and Kim Kardashian all swear by the procedure. In fact, Kim was pictured on ‘At Home with the Kardashian’s’ receiving Botox.

At the end of the day having Botox is a very personal thing. It is up to the individual whether they want to talk about it or not. However, one thing is strikingly obvious, Botox is well and truly here to stay.

He also said that he thought he was ‘too old’ for teeth straightening. However, after seeking advice he realised that Invisalign treatment was very accessible. The brace was clear and removable so it did not interfere with his work.

Following his treatment, the star’s confidence and career saw a real boost. He was quoted on The Mail Online. “It just sort of changed my confidence level a bunch and my career kind of exploded after I had it done. It just took off.” It is amazing how straight teeth can make such a difference to how people look and feel.

Wed

Latest News

NHS dentistry satisfaction is on the riseA recent poll revealed that NHS dentistry satisfaction is on the rise. The survey was carried out by the National Centre for Social Research between July and October last year. The sample interviewed was around three thousand. People were asked about their general satisfaction with the NHS, and also about individual services.

When the data was analysed it showed that NHS dentistry satisfaction has risen by seven percent. This takes the figures up to sixty-one percent. This is the highest public satisfaction rating since the beginning of the nineties. As you can imagine, the BDA (British Dental Association) have welcomed the news that satisfaction is on the rise. Following this, they are encouraging dentists to build on the results and to continue to take pride in their work. The poll has proved that, despite the funding cuts, dentists are still working hard to provide the best possible care for their patients. The BDA chairman, Mick Armstrong was quoted on dentistry.co.uk. “This profession can take pride in the fact that public satisfaction in NHS dentistry has hit a near 20 year high, in spite of chronic underfunding and discredited contracts.” This news a great step in the right direction for dentistry.

Jaw Reconstruction Using 3D Printing

Fri

Latest News

An Australian woman has undergone a full jaw reconstruction using 3D printing technology. Back in 1989, Susie Robinson was twenty years old. One night while she was driving with friends her car left the road in a horrific accident.Jaw Reconstruction Using 3D Printing  When police arrived on the scene they were shocked to find that everyone in the car had survived. However, they were all left with life-changing scars and injuries. Ms. Robinson suffered from a shattered jaw. Surgeons had to use thirty pins and many meters of wire to hold her jaw together. She also lost her four front teeth.

For years after the accident, Ms. Robinson underwent numerous surgeries to try and fix the problem. Despite this, her jaw was never completely repaired. Therefore, she decided to opt for a new technology. The 3D printer is used to print a perfectly fitting titanium jawbone implant. This is then held in place by micro screws. Once the implant is in place, over time, the natural bone grows around the implant. Dental teeth implants can also be fixed to the structure. With the success of this pioneering jaw reconstruction using 3D printing, dental reconstruction surgery could potentially develop in unimaginable ways. For Ms. Robinson, it was the answer to a nearly three-decade problem.

New nano technology for dental implants

Mon

Latest News

A group of UK researchers and scientists have developed a new nano technology for dental implants. The new nano coating is said to reduce the risk of peri-implantitis developing. Peri-implantitis is inflammation around the implant and is the main cause of their failure.

The nano-coating is made up of titanium oxide, silver, and hydroxyapatite. In the trials these helped to stop the growth of bacteria and also bacteria biofilm by nearly ninety-eight percent. Therefore, a significant breakthrough in fighting implant failure. As well as fighting bacteria the nano coating helped the implants successfully attach to the bone.

Professor Chris Tredwin is part of the scientific research team. He is also Head of Plymouth University’s Dentistry School. Professor Tredwin had this to say about their findings. “We have identified the means to protect dental implants against the most common cause of their failure. The potential of our work for increased patient comfort and satisfaction, and reduced costs is great and we look forward to translating our findings into clinical practice.” Therefore, the new discovery could mean that dental implant failure could soon be a thing of the past.

Kim Kardashian’s dentist reveals all

Latest News

Kim Kardashian’s dentist reveals all on just how the mega star gets such a perfect smile. Dr. Kevin Sands is a well-known celebrity dentist due to his talent and skill. As well as the Kardashian family, he also treats Hollywood celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Miley Cyrus.

Dr. Sands, Kim Kardashian’s dentist reveals all….

Dr. Sands has said that the secret to Kim’s beautiful smile is simply undergoing teeth whitening and Invisalign braces. According to Dr. Sands, Kim has teeth whitening twice a year to ensure a dazzlingly white smile. At age twenty-eight she also had Invisalign clear braces to straighten her misaligned smile. The results from Invisalign, coupled with regular whitening, has given her one on the most well-known smiles in Hollywood.

Dr. Sands’ expert advice was featured on Hollywoodlife.com. “For optimal results, you should get a cleaning before you get a whitening — any plaque on your teeth will not bleach. You need to avoid coloured foods for the first 48 hours after your teeth whitening. Your pores are more exposed and susceptible to stain.” Therefore, if you would like a smile like Kim’s then Invisalign treatment and teeth whitening are the way forward.

Hormone replacement therapy could reduce the risk of gum disease

Thu

Latest News

A new study has shown that hormone replacement therapy could reduce the risk of gum disease. Also known as HRT, hormone replacement therapy is usually prescribed to combat common symptoms of the menopause. However, now scientists are suggesting that there could be oral health benefits to the medication too. During the menopause, women can become more susceptible to oral health problems. This is due to a decrease in oestrogen levels. The new research has shown that HRT can help to protect women from these issues developing.

Researchers on the project studied four hundred and ninety-two women. The age range spanned from fifty to eighty-seven. The scientists discovered that gum disease was less prevalent in the one hundred and thirteen women who were undergoing HRT. There was a forty-four percent decrease in the disease in this group. These women were receiving HRT for osteoporosis.

Dr JoAnn Pinkerton, executive of the American Moenopause Society, released a statement. This explained how osteoporosis can have a knock-on effect on the whole body. One of these issues is a weakening of the jaw bone. As a result of this, women can suffer from increased risk of gum disease. However, going forward, hormone replacement therapy could reduce the risk of gum disease in this age range. This could be a valuable discovery for women’s oral health.

Dentist volunteered in Nepal

Thu

Latest News

A Milton Keynes dentist volunteered in Nepal recently, through the Dentaid charity. Anne Martin Powders wanted to give something back to people less fortunate. Following the earthquake that hit Nepal in 2015, the country has struggled to rebuild itself. Therefore, vital dental supplies have been in short supply. The Dentaid project has been supporting schools, orphanages, and street children in the affected areas. They have been providing dental care and education to some of the poorest children in the country.

Anne was part of a team of volunteers that visited the country for two weeks. She reported that it was ‘heartbreaking’ to see the street children in such a predicament. However, the presence of the volunteers helped to provide essential dental care. Anne also spoke of the excitement of the children at the orphanages when the team arrived. As well as dental care they handed out toys, toothbrushes, and toothpaste. They also provided demonstrations to the children on how to brush their teeth properly. Without volunteers like Anne, these children may not have received the vital care that they need.

    My favourite part of Pearl Dental Clinic is my clinician, Dr Ehsan Esfahani. Dr Esfahani is very good at explaining my current status and my future treatment plan (Invisalign Full) he gives me great assurance and confidence that the outcome of my treatment will be as promised in my first consultation - Dr Esfahani is reluctant to make promises that he knows cannot be delivered. In addition to his excellent dentistry knowledge and professional manner Dr Esfahani is a genuinely nice person who is very welcoming, relaxing and a pleasure to have as my dentist. I should also thank Dr Esfahani's assistant and the gentleman on the front desk (Wednesday nights) who are both incredibly polite and helpful during every visit to the practice.
