Botox is not just a pretty faceDespite the positive and negative media attention, Botox is not just a pretty face. The anti-ageing substance is best known for smoothing out wrinkles and providing a more fresh-faced look. However, there are many other benefits to Botox that are worth noting.

Botox can be a life-changing treatment. Not only for those who lack confidence but also those who suffer from chronic conditions. These could range from depression, bladder issues, and teeth grinding, to migraines and voice disorders. Neurologist, Paul Darveniza gave his professional opinion to The Daily Telegraph. “Despite the fact it’s the most toxic biological substance known to mankind, it’s also a safe and straightforward treatment with few complications.”

As well as celebrities using the substance to smooth wrinkles, some have also undergone treatment for medical reasons. Allegedly, popular Coronation Street star and X-factor winner Shayne Ward received the treatment after he experienced issues with his voice box. If you are considering having Botox, cosmetically, or medically, ensure that you visit a reputable clinic to achieve the best possible results.

UK is at the forefront of promising new dental trainingThe UK is at the forefront of promising new dental training that is currently underway at Portsmouth University. Their programme has adopted a Virtual Reality platform to help train new dentists to the highest standards. The University, prompted by the NHS turning 70, has invested in research to compare previous methods of dentistry with current ones.

Previously, dental students would have carried their own kit to classes and worked solely on real teeth. However, now the University provides all the equipment they need as well as models, dummies, and the new virtual reality simulators for practical experience.

Portsmouth University’s Head of School, Professor Chris Louca, gave the following statement. “Dentistry has come a long way in the past 70 years. Things move on very quickly and dentistry is now very high tech, and the training itself is much more streamlined, as well as integrated with other health professionals.” The new VR simulators are invaluable for students’ learning and progression. Furthermore, it allows tutors to give instant feedback in context, rather than days or weeks after the event.

Love Island's Ellie visited Dr Esho before entering the villaIt has been reported by The Sun that Love Island’s Ellie visited Dr Esho before entering the villa. It is said that the twenty year old Love Island star underwent Dermal Filler injections, amongst other treatments, in a bid to improve the look of her cheeks and lips.

The cosmetic guru Dr Esho has been a surgeon to the stars for some time and features on the E4 show, Body Fixers. He confirmed the treatment via Twitter after news broke that she had shared a kiss with her love match Dr Alex George. Dr Esho stated in the Tweet that he had treated Ellie before she entered the show. However, because of her age, she wanted to keep the treatment natural looking. Therefore, the experienced surgeon only administered small amounts of filler to her cheeks and lips.

Another source, close to Ellie, also spoke on the subject. “Ellie was going on TV to try to find love. She wanted to make sure she looked the best she possibly could and wasn’t afraid to have a helping hand.”

Stem cell research could benefit dental implant procedures

Latest News

Stem cell research could benefit dental implant proceduresNew studies show stem cell research could benefit dental implant procedures. The research looked at the benefits of using stem cells that derive from periodontal ligament. These ligaments are connective tissues in the gum. Their function is to connect the tooth to the bone. They help to ensure the teeth remain in place firmly and safely.

During the research, the periodontal ligaments were used to create a cell sheet that was then attached to a titanium dental implant screw. The then implanted screw, combined with the cells, showed a promotion of the growth of the surrounding tissues. Therefore, the feasibility and success of the implant could be improved. This may also work to complement bone grafting procedures in the future. Better still it could, potentially, eradicate the need for the process altogether.

Professor John Fisher (Ph.D.) of the University of Maryland expressed his excitement at the research findings. “This truly innovative work combines traditional dental implants with stem cell sheet technology, thus creating a particularly relevant solution to a widespread problem in dental health care.”

Possible breakthrough in enamel regeneration

Fri

Latest News

Possible breakthrough in enamel regenerationA possible breakthrough in enamel regeneration has been reported in the Shropshire Star. Enamel damage is responsible for around fifty percent of tooth loss cases worldwide. However, the study featured in the science journal Nature Communications shows promising results.

Due to the fact that enamel is unable to re-grow, it has always been of vital importance to preserve it as much as possible. However, for some people, they may still find themselves with weakened enamel. These new results could be a step towards regenerating lost or damaged enamel and restoring teeth back to health. Not only can this material restore enamel but it can also help to prevent tooth decay and sensitivity.

The researchers involved say that they have discovered a protein that can trigger a similar process to how enamel is initially developed as the body grows. This process is said to be able to fully re-grow hard tissues like enamel or bone. Such a breakthrough could not only be beneficial to dental practises, but also for medical procedures. The lead author of the paper, Professor Alvaro Mata, has referred to the finding as a ‘key discovery’.

Latest News

Mouth guards could help protect London cyclistsA doctor has spoken out following a traumatic accident on his bike. Dr Geraint Lee advises that mouth guards could help protect London cyclists from suffering extensive damage to their teeth and mouth due to potholes and heavy traffic. Although his accident did not happen on London streets he still sees this as a major concern. He believes that wearing a mouth guard could be key to avoiding extensive dental trauma following an accident.

 

Dr Lee spoke to The Evening Standard. “After my accident, I felt really vulnerable. Your teeth are really important, and it is so easy to fall off your bike.” Luckily for Dr Lee, medics and dental professionals were able to successfully save his teeth, however, he now wears a specially fitted mouth guard while cycling the streets of London from his home in West Norwood. Ms. Djemal, chair of the charity Dental Trauma UK, also spoke to The Evening Standard on the topic. “I would urge cyclists — and anyone involved in contact sports — to get a mouthguard professionally fitted by their dentist.”

Acupuncture could help dental anxiety sufferers

Latest News

Acupuncture could help dental anxiety sufferersA new study has revealed that acupuncture could help dental anxiety sufferers. Dental anxiety affects about a quarter of the UK population and can make trips to the dentist unbearable. The use of dental sedation has helped many people access the dental care they need. However, there could now be another possible option available for patients in the future.

Before, during, and after the study, dental anxiety levels among patients who had no treatment and those who had acupuncture were compared. The results showed an interesting reduction of anxiety on the patients who had received acupuncture. Professor MacPherson, Professor of Acupuncture of the University of York, spoke to Science Daily. “These are interesting findings, but we need more trials that measure the impact of acupuncture on anxiety before going to the dentist, during treatment, and after treatment.”

Together, acupuncture, in conjunction with dental sedation, could improve the overall patient experience. More research in this area is certainly needed. However, the results so far are very promising and could make a difference to many.

 

Pearl Dental Clinic is open 7 days a week from 9am to 10pm. You can book in for an appointment with IV sedative by calling 020 3613 3186 or emailing us or booking an appointment online.

Preventative Botox is a rapidly growing trend among millennials

Latest News

Preventative Botox is a rapidly growing trend among millennialsOften, Botox is associated with a middle-aged target audience who are acquiring Botox to smooth their ever-deepening wrinkles. However, a new trend is forming. Preventative Botox is a rapidly growing trend among millennials who want to stop the onset of wrinkles before they begin. This is opposed to treating an established issue later on in life.

Celebrity cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Paul Jarrod spoke to Fox News about his findings. “The largest growing demographic at my practice are millennials in their late 20s and early 30s. These days, it’s just another form of grooming (like getting waxed, colouring your hair, getting facials, etc)”.

Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons tell the full extent of the story. Since 2010 Botox has increased by 28% in the age bracket of twenty to twenty-nine. Due to increased social media engagement, selfies, and striving to look good at all times, there is a huge amount of pressure on young people today. This, coupled with facial aesthetic treatments becoming more affordable, there is no wonder that many are turning to this treatment to fight the signs of ageing earlier.
