Nanoparticles are helping to improve dental surgery

Nanoparticles are helping to improve dental surgeryNanoparticles are helping to improve dental surgery according to the latest study at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. The research has discovered that nanoparticles containing enzymes are effective in undertaking basic dental surgeries while protecting healthy tissue.

Lead researcher, Avi Schroeder, spoke to Phys.org about the new findings. “The existing scalpel cannot distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue. However, enzymes can. Proteolytic enzymes are tuned to degrade specific tissues, without harming other healthy tissues. We believe that in the future surgeries must be more accurate, with less damage to healthy tissues.”

There were also positive findings in relation to orthodontics. The tests showed that prior treatment with the nanoparticles improved many areas within the orthodontic process. These included better alignment during the treatment, less pain and discomfort, and less tooth relapse afterward. Potentially, this nanotechnology could dramatically improve a patient’s experience when undergoing teeth straightening. An added bonus is the body uses natural enzymes throughout the process. It is unsure at this time if, or when, this process will be available to the public.

Jason Donovan uses Botox to repair his vocal cordsIt has been reported on the popular ITV morning television show, Lorainne, that Jason Donovan uses Botox to repair his vocal cords. The star has suffered many setbacks over recent years and was desperate to get his career back on track following a speight of issues with his voice.

A top medical team suggested a series of holistic therapies, including Botox. The Botox was administered into the star’s larynx to help relax the tight muscles around the voice box. The star then joked about having a double treatment for his larynx and his forehead. “I said to the therapist if you fancy putting it in my forehead I would be very happy about that.”

The star said that the issues he had experienced with his voice were a wake-up call for him. Following this, he has learned to look after himself better and not push too hard. The Botox seems to have helped him dramatically and has allowed him to start performing again. Due to Botox, the public may be seeing a lot more of Jason in the near future.

Link between maintaining oral health and type 2 diabetes managementA new study has established a link between maintaining oral health and type 2 diabetes management. Research scientists, situated at the University of Barcelona, have reported their findings on the subject. The findings show that patients with Type 2 Diabetes who employ and maintain a good oral health care routine are more likely to have lower blood glucose levels. Maintaining lower blood glucose is essential for overall health. Especially for people with both types of Diabetes.

It is nothing new that there is an established link between oral health and Type 2 Diabetes management. However, the link was always thought to be the opposite way around. Better management of the condition contributed to better oral health. Now, this is being challenged.

The study involved the participation of ninety individuals with Type 2 Diabetes. After six months following a set oral hygiene routine results showed improvement in blood glucose levels. This is a fantastic discovery. Which could result in many people managing their diabetes and dental health more effectively.

Internet CBT helps children cope with dental fearAccording to a study that was published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, internet CBT helps children cope with dental fear. Dental fear has long been an issue for many people, however, investment in holistic therapies appears to be paying off. The main aim of the project is to deal with dental fear at an early age. Most dental phobias develop in childhood.

CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) can tackle a multitude of phobias. Most people find this method helpful and successful. Because of this, Swedish Medical University, Karolinska Institutet, has developed a new Cognitive Therapy Program for children and have gained some very interesting results.

The modules were delivered over a video chat platform by a trained psychologist. Surprisingly, over half the children in the study were completely free of dental fear or anxiety after only one year. Addressing the problem of dental phobia from a young age could allow many more people to access important treatment. Therefore, decreasing the numbers of people suffering from ill dental health.

Invisalign is named one of the hottest products of the yearInvisalign is named one of the hottest products of the year according to CNN Money. Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign, have had a record year, with profits soaring. In fact, the company’s value has almost tripled. Making it the top performer in the Standard and Poor’s 500 stock index and propelling its worth to a near twenty billion dollars.

Even though Invisalign is the number one choice for adult orthodontics, sales have also been boosted by teens wanting more discreet teeth straightening. The company saw around seventy thousand Invisalign Teen sales in its last quarter alone. Meaning a forty-three percent rise on last years stats.

Invisalign’s CEO, Joe Hogan spoke to CNN Money about the vision and benefits of the device. “You can pull them out to eat the food that you want or play a sport or play a musical instrument. You can live the life that you want to live.” Hogan also attributes their growing success to the amount of investment the company has made. This has allowed them to treat more complex cases that were not possible before.

American dental pioneer has his sights set on the UK

American dental pioneer has his sights set on the UKStan Brock, the American dental pioneer has his sights set on the UK. For over thirty years, the ex-cowboy has organised over nine hundred temporary, large-scale clinics to help America’s poorest people receive desperately needed dental care. These clinics also included optician services. Following his huge success, Brock now has a vision of bringing this same set up to the streets of the UK.

He and his team of volunteers are looking to acquire temporary access to several large buildings in London. One in particular that has been mooted is the famous Wembley Stadium. Mr. Brock contacted The Times about his intentions and spoke openly about his motivations. “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to equate the healthcare situation in Britain to that here in the United States. Healthcare for millions of Americans is accessible but not affordable. This dilemma reaches deep into the middle class when it comes to dentistry and vision care.”

The good news is that Brock has already secured financial backing for the operation, and many of the volunteers are happy to pay for their own travel costs. However, he could face complications when trying to bring American volunteers into the country. With this in mind, he says he would be happy to try and encourage EU volunteers to get on board with the project. Watch this space!

Could Botox be getting a facelift?

                 Could Botox be getting a facelift?

Reports are emerging of new ‘Botox’ developments that could change the way people use the toxin forever. The company Revance Therapeutics Inc. has just published results of testing for a Botulinum toxin. The claims being that their product could last much longer than its competitors. Chief Executive Officer of Revance Therapeutics Inc. Daniel Browne expressed his excitement over their new developments to Bloomberg.com. According to the drug’s developer, their vision is to challenge the existing maker of Botox, Allergan Plc.

Although the new Botulinum toxin may not be available until 2020 it is still a step in the right direction for a more cost-effective and longer lasting anti-ageing treatment. Revance says that their main target audiences will most likely be men, previously hesitant or skeptical women, and Millenials who want to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place. Anti-ageing treatments are big business, with many people wanting to halt the ageing process. These developments could certainly be beneficial to many and also save them a few well-earned pounds in the process.

Zoom teeth whitening gathers media attentionZoom teeth whitening gathers media attention this month and is fast becoming the seasons new must have. A white smile is so iconic as part of the fashion ‘must-haves’ that it has overtaken the little black dress. Teeth whitening is now the most requested cosmetic treatment on the market. It is rare that you see a celebrity on the red carpet without a white smile.

In an over-saturated market, it can be hard to know which will deliver the best results. However, Zoom whitening has been praised by the media for delivering instant results and is the perfect complement to your winter wardrobe. Zoom is an effective treatment for food and drink stains, as well as tobacco yellowing, tooth ageing, and some discolouration from medications.

The reason why Zoom is so effective is due to the way that the bleach is activated. This is achieved by using a LED light to help the bleach penetrate deeper into the tooth enamel. If you would like a whiter smile for the party season why not give Zoom a try yourself.
