Invisalign is the new must have for over sixties

Invisalign is the new must have for over sixtiesYou are only as old as you feel and this is why Invisalign is the new must have for over sixties. More and more people are opting for discreet teeth straightening and the older generations are getting in on the action. Sixty-four-year-old Karen Nazor Hill is an advocate for the process and wants to show that it is available to anyone in spite of age.

Recently, due to age related shifting, Karen and her orthodontist decided that something needed to be done. Therefore, Invisalign treatment was explored, and both agreed that this would be the best way forward.

Karen was published in The Times Free Press. “Some people may question why I’m choosing to have this done so late in life. It’s a simple answer. I smile a lot, and my teeth are important to me. In the last couple of years, though, they are becoming crowded and, as a result, shifting. Also, my daughter, Karah, 40, got Invisalign about a year ago. The result is one of the most beautiful smiles I’ve ever seen”. Karen is due to start her treatment in the near future.

This story just goes to show that you are never too old to make a positive change and we wish Karen all the best through her Invisalign journey.

Michelle Keegan’s cosmetic tweakment rumours

Latest News

Michelle Keegan's cosmetic tweakment rumoursMichelle Keegan’s cosmetic tweakment rumours have circulated once more this week as she emerged with, what looked like, injection sites on her forehead. The ex Coronation Street and Our Girl star was spotted last week on her way to a lunch date.

Typically, with this type of story, fans and surgeons would express worry and angst over their favourite celeb, however, with Michelle, this is not the case. Dr. Alex Kardis, a well known cosmetic surgeon, was quoted in Reveal Magazine. “Everything she looks to have done is a slighter moderation and has been done very tastefully. She looks good.”

It is rumoured that Michelle has undergone dermal filler treatments in her lips, and had Botox in her face and jaw. There is also speculation that she has had dental veneers fitted to improve the look of her smile. It is clear that the star has changed somewhat since her first television appearance in Coronation street in 2011. However, many say that she has changed for the better, not the worse, and still looks naturally beautiful.

New formulation of Botox could last longer

Latest News

New formulation of Botox could last longerA new formulation of Botox could last longer according to medicalnewsbulletin.com. Currently, Botox is seen as an effective treatment for wrinkles, however, it has long been known that it needs regular top ups for the effects to continue. Therefore, this new development could mean fewer trips to the clinic and less overall cost for the patient.

Botox works by temporarily paralysing the muscles by blocking the signals from the nerves. Due to this, the skin does not wrinkle and appears smooth and flat. Canadian scientists conducted a large-scale trial which studied the effects of the new formulation in comparison to the current one. The trial focused on the forehead lines between the eyes (glabellar lines). Over two hundred and fifty people took part. The results showed that while both formulations were effective at reducing wrinkles the new formulation lasted, on average, five weeks longer than the current option. This has prompted three more wide-scale trials. The aspirations are to get the new formula approved for use in the near future.

Invisalign’s invasion of Twitter

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 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.
