Invisalign’s invasion of Twitter

Fri

Latest News

Invisalign's invasion of TwitterWednesday afternoon was like any other for the social media giants, that is until Invisalign’s invasion of Twitter took over. Invisalign featured in the top trending list on that day, and no one knows why.

Bizarrely, the word ‘Invisalign’ was being used in completely unrelated posts, even a Tweet relating to the US president which was hashtagged Invisalign. This gained a lot of attention and re-Tweets. There was also an abundance of Tweets that just simply read ‘Invisalign’. Other tags were Tweets talking about why Invisalign was trending in such a way for apparently no reason at all.

All this media attention also prompted an array of memories, memes, and funny anecdotes from the general public. “My #Invisalign memory: Friend took the trays out at a restaurant & put them in a napkin. All food & the napkin thrown away at end of meal.” One thing is for sure, the makers of Invisalign will have no complaints about all the extra free publicity it has received over the last few days.

Australian dentist creates a new type of veneer

Australian dentist creates a new type of veneerAn Australian dentist creates a new type of veneer that only takes ninety minutes to fit. Dr. Sigal Jacobson became so frustrated with the process of creating porcelain veneers she decided to invent a new way. Due to her perseverance, she developed a much faster process which has been called Uveneer.

First of all, a composite bonding material is applied to the teeth. A specialised plastic tooth template is then pressed over the composite bonding to form the shape of the tooth. The final part of the procedure uses a LED light to fix the bonding in place. The process has shown proven results and is an exciting development in the cosmetic dentistry industry.

Not only is the process faster, but it is also cheaper and so much easier, saving dentists valuable time. Furthermore, the Uveneer kit makes it possible to achieve a predictable shape and finish with guaranteed symmetry every single time. There is still a patent pending on the kit so it may not be available just yet, however, when it is it could revolutionise the way dentists perform the veneer process for years to come.

Jennifer Anniston knows how to use cosmetic dentistry to her advantageFriends’ star Jennifer Anniston knows how to use cosmetic dentistry to her advantage by having small tweaks here and there. The phenomenon has been labelled ‘tweakments’ by leading experts and is fast becoming the preferred look for celebrities because of their desire to stay natural. This could mean a slight change in lip size, or subtle Botox to soften lines and wrinkles.

Over one hundred doctors, surgeons, cosmetic dentists, and dermatologists have praised certain celebs for having subtle changes, with Anniston coming top of the list. Dr. Michael Prager, a leading cosmetic surgeon spoke to The Telegraph. “She hasn’t overdone the Botox and still has very slight crow’s feet and the horizontal forehead lines are visible. You can also see at the bottom lip in the middle there are some fine lumps as well as on the right upper lip overall.” Due to this, experts say that she has struck the right balance between fighting the ageing process and still appearing natural and remaining true to her original look. Other celebrities on the list included Cheryl Cole, Kylie Minogue, and Jennifer Lopez.

Mobile bus brings dental care to primary schoolsA new mobile bus brings dental care to primary schools in the Banbury area of Oxfordshire. The dental bus is run by Big Smiles and assisted by local dental practices.

The Banbury Guardian covered the story and saw the bus attending King’s Sutton Primary School. This was to provide education to children on how to look after their teeth and gums. Mrs. Palastanga, Head Teacher at the primary school, praised the initiative for having further reaching effects. Not just for dental health but also on the children’s mindset about a healthy diet and lifestyle. “It’s been a fantastic reception, they’ve been looking at everyday foods and sometimes foods and healthy eating.” This education has been through the use of activities, games, and 1-1 discussion.

The children have also benefitted from the experience of seeing a dental surgery and how it works. For some, this could be for the first time. Furthermore, the good news is that this initiative is a nation wide program, therefore, more and more schools should start reaping the benefits of the scheme in the near future.

Petrified woman gets an All-On-Four smile makeover

Petrified woman gets an All-On-Four smile makeoverA petrified woman gets an All-On-Four smile makeover thanks to the skill and patience of a Newcastle dentist.

Mavis Melton Chapman had a traumatic experience at the dentist when she was a young child. Due to this, she struggled for many years to attend dental check-ups. So much so that she often used superglue to mend cracks and breaks in her teeth because of her crippling fear.

This all changed, however, when Mavis discovered her long-term partner, Stephen, had been diagnosed with cancer. The couple decided to wed and she longed for perfect teeth for her wedding day. Mavis bravely underwent implant surgery using the All-On-Four method. This means that four implants are placed in the jaw and fitted with a full bridge of natural looking teeth.

Mrs. Melton Chapman had the dental implant procedure performed at the Dovetail Bespoke Dental Solutions clinic in Newcastle, which set her back a whopping £25,000. However, it is clear that she feels this was money well spent, and now has a lovely selection of wedding photographs and cherished memories to remember her big day.

Possible breakthrough for toothache sufferers

Wed

Latest News

Possible breakthrough for toothache sufferersThe Irish News online has reported of a possible breakthrough for toothache sufferers. This innovative new technique could change the way that dentists perform root canal procedures on patient’s teeth. The new research, carried out by the OHSU in Oregon, USA, has developed the manufacture of new, fully functioning, blood vessels.

The issue with standard root canal practice is that the tooth is effectively dead due to the removal of the blood supply. This new technique could eliminate this problem, and therefore, keep the tooth alive. The new technique consists of using a process inspired by 3D printing. In effect, the technology can create functioning blood vessels that can then be implanted into the tooth.

One of the lead researchers on the trial, Bertassoni, explained. “This result proves that fabrication of artificial blood vessels can be a highly effective strategy for fully regenerating the function of teeth.”

Due to the new technique patients could see better long-term outcomes, whilst keeping a functional tooth. This could spell a major breakthrough for the dentistry world.

NHS pledge a £6.3 million annual investmentCentral Midland’s NHS pledge a £6.3 million annual investment to improve dental services and access to dental care. The region of Leicestershire and Rutland are set to receive the sum of money in the hope that dental care can be improved. The plans for the money will allow for five new dental practices across the region and will facilitate existing practices to offer later opening hours. There are also plans to provide more specialist care for patients with special needs. The Head of Primary Care for the region, Di Pegg welcomes the proposed changes. “That’s great news for people right across the area, who from December will find it much easier to benefit from routine, urgent and out-of-hours NHS dental care closer to where they live.”

Over the course of ten years, this amounts to a staggering £63 million. It is unsure, at this point, whether the funding will continue after the ten-year contract expires. The planned investment is set to take effect from 1st December 2017. Potentially this could help thousands of people receive better access to the dental care they need.

Chin fillers on the rise

Latest News

Chin fillers on the riseA new trend has seen chin fillers on the rise. Dr. Esho, a well known cosmetic surgeon, explains that Dermal Fillers for the chin are growing in popularity. He believes, due to the boom in lip fillers, people are also undergoing chin fillers to help balance the proportions of the face. Dr. Esho spoke to Harpers Bazaar. “Precise injections of filler are injected into the chin to realign the shape in position with the lips and the rest of the face.”

However, Dr. Ourian of the Beverly Hills Clinic, Epione, has a different explanation. He believes that the massive growth is due to another reason. He attributes it to the fact that dermal fillers are not a permanent solution so are, therefore, customisable in the short term. This gives people the versatility to change their look from time to time without requiring permanent implant surgery. Dr. Ourian has an array of celebrity clients, including, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.

Whatever the reason for this sudden increase, people are seeing the benefits of dermal fillers as an alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgeries.

Did Pippa Middleton have a wedding smile makeover?

Latest News

Did Pippa Middleton have a wedding smile makeover?Did Pippa Middleton have a wedding smile makeover? the rumour is that yes she did. Reports have emerged that the now Pippa Matthews underwent cosmetic dentistry in preparation for her wedding day.

What the experts say – Did Pippa Middleton have a wedding smile makeover?

Dental expert, Dr. Rhona Eskander, believes that Pippa has gone through a process which is classed as the ‘gold standard’ of dentistry. This involves aligning the teeth, applying whitening bleach, and then using composite bonding to improve the shape. Collectively these procedures can make a big difference to the overall look of someone’s smile.

Dr Eskander gave her professional opinion to the Daily Mail. “Looking at photos of Pippa as a child, it is possible to see that she had more widely spaced teeth and like her sister Kate and may have had a fixed brace as a youngster. However, like Kate, whose teeth relapsed and who had further orthodontic treatment as an adult, I suspect Pippa has had the same.” Dr. Eskander also believes the honorary royal may have undergone Invisalign treatment to straighten her teeth in a discreet way.

Dermal fillers are seen as an effective treatment for acne scars

Latest News

Dermal fillers are seen as an effective treatment for acne scarsA clinical trial, shared by Medical News Bulletin, has revealed more evidence that dermal fillers are seen as an effective treatment for acne scars. Acne (also known as acne vulgatis) affects around eighty percent of adolescents. Subsequently, this often means prominent scarring and loss of confidence and self-esteem. During the study, a range of dermal fillers were reviewed. One of which was the temporary filler, hyaluronic acid. This type of filler is commonly used by celebrities and the general public to add volume to the face and lips. However, the review suggests that hyaluronic acid can also be very effective at smoothing and softening acne scars, and is in fact underutilised.

Current developments are aiming towards dermatologists being able to prescribe dermal fillers as part of their treatment plans. This is an exciting and innovative step towards minimising the effects of acne. A welcome development for many that suffer from it. Dermal fillers may also be available for topical administering in the future. Although, this treatment may need to be coupled with a laser procedure.
