New cosmetic dentistry device ‘could help those with cleft palates’

Thu

Cleft palates could be corrected with the help of a device similar to invisible braces in reverse.A professor of orthodontics and biomedical engineering has created a device which he believes could use cosmetic dentistry to help correct cleft palates.

Dr Tarek El-Bialy from the University of Alberta in Canada has designed a device which sits on the outside of the teeth and pulls outward on them in the same way that invisible braces would push in.

This expands the teeth and the jaw without the patient having to be referred for surgery.

Dr El-Bialy hopes that if children with cleft palates begin wearing his new device from the age of seven, it will prevent the need for a surgeon to have to cut their jaws in the future.

“I’m looking for a company right now to get it from the prototype to the commercialisation so the patient can use it,” he commented.

According to the Cleft Lip and Palate Association, the condition affects approximately one in 700 babies born in the UK, making it the most common congenital craniofacial abnormality.

Britons warned about dangerous cosmetic dentistry abroad

Wed

Brits have been warned about the dangers of cosmetic dentistry abroad.British people should think twice before seeking cosmetic dentistry abroad, as they could risk having permanent damage done to their teeth.

Although many practitioners in foreign countries offer services such as teeth whitening, many may not perform the correct procedures to ensure patients’ safety.

Consequently, those who opt for such services may find they end up needing reconstructive dentistry when they get home.

David Ross from the Hospital Group said: “What many people don’t realise is that some countries do not follow the same safety guidelines and practices that the UK does.”

Although he advised checking the credentials of the dentist before travelling, it may be more beneficial to look closer to home and opt for cosmetic dentistry in London.

Last month, Mintel said that nearly a third of men are concerned about having yellow teeth, which could result in an increase in demand for teeth whitening services in the UK.

Invisalign braces ‘will work without interfering with your life’

Mon

Invisalign braces will not be on your mind all day every day.Invisalign braces have been recommended as the ideal way to transform anyone’s smile without interfering too much in their everyday lives.

DentistryIQ.com stated that the system of providing patients with clear aligners that are changed every two weeks is much better than having to have traditional braces fitted.

Invisalign gently moves your teeth into position, all the while offering you maximum discretion,” the article commented.

The fact that Invisalign braces allow the wearer to eat, drink and brush their teeth was also highlighted as a plus point.

Should patients being treated in this way wish to add “the wow factor”, they could also consider having teeth whitening treatment after their smile has been realigned, DentistryIQ.com suggested.

At the recent British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry conference, 22 per cent of dentists said they are now using Invisalign braces to complement existing orthodontic treatments for patients.

This was put down to a growing trend for non-invasive procedures among Britons.

‘It’s never too late’ to seek cosmetic dentistry

Mon

Invisible braces and cosmetic dentistry are not just for children.A dental specialist has advised anyone thinking of having invisible braces fitted as adults that it will be worth the effort once the teeth are in their intended position.

Robert Williams, an orthodontist who teaches at the University of Maryland in the US, told NPR.com he often fits braces to people who are no longer in the first flush of youth.

“Some of my patients are in their 60s and 70s. It’s never too late,” he insisted.

According to a recent poll by the American Association of Orthodontists, one in five new patients for cosmetic dentistry is an adult.

Earlier this month, Denise Calaman, a writer for the lifestyle website Helium, said invisible braces are sure to make a big improvement on the smiles of people who have struggled with misaligned teeth.

She said she recently had orthodontic treatment and it helped with her self-esteem, but warned patients not to expect miracles.

Need for professionals to carry out cosmetic dentistry highlighted after arrest

Thu

Using unqualified people for your cosmetic dentistry could result in heartache.Anyone hoping to have cosmetic dentistry has been urged not to go for cheap deals or visit practitioners who cannot prove their qualifications.

This comes after 41-year-old David Lawrence was apprehended in the US for running three dental firms without a licence.

His crimes came to light after a patient went to have false teeth fitted and they subsequently broke.

After she went back to complain, she asked about Mr Lawrence’s qualifications and he refused to answer.

The Department of Health was called and it was found that he was not qualified to carry out any dental work or work as a dental hygienist, so the Broward Sheriff’s Office arrested and charged him.

In a similar case last month, Mario Alfredo Pacheco was also arrested and prosecuted after fitting dental implants and carrying out emergency dentistry without qualifications, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

One of his patients’ dental implants were so poorly fitted they caused an infection.

Dentists make case for green standards during cosmetic dentistry procedures

Wed

Cosmetic dentistry patients 'should aim to save water where possible'Providers of cosmetic dentistry procedures in Bangalore are doling out advice to their patients on ways they can help the environment while carrying out their daily dental hygiene routine.

Built around the theme “good for you and for the earth”, the programme sees dentists offer tips to their customers and wear green-themed badges to spark debate, reports Daily News & Analysis.

Among the recommendations is to conserve water while brushing teeth by switching off the tap and to use toothbrushes for the recommended amount of time rather than throwing them away after a few weeks.

Those carrying out cosmetic dentistry procedures in the city are also set to hold up their end of the bargain by using digital x-ray machines and utilising CLF bulbs rather than spotlights.

Dr Asish Shetty, a professor at the Bangalore Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital, remarked: “We are aiming to promote the concept of green dentistry. There are many practices in this profession that need to be changed to achieve this goal.”

Earlier this month, cosmetic dental surgeon and implantologist Dr Shreyank Patel told the Times of India that cosmetic dentistry can help ordinary people to have “dazzling smiles”.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800066188-ADNFCR

Cosmetic dental procedures ‘can give people flawless teeth’

Mon

Cosmetic dental procedures 'can give people flawless teeth'Men and women who want to have flawless teeth could opt for having cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth implants, it has been suggested.

A report in the Helsinki Times gave readers advice on creating the perfect smile and informed them of the different dental operations they can have, including dental implants and teeth whitening.

It said: “Cosmetic dentistry means procedures to correct flaws that affect dental appearance.”

The writer stated that the popularity of dental procedures “has probably grown somewhat” in Finland.

A recent study was conducted to help scientists understand how people respond to their dental implants, by making a 3D model of a reptile called a tuaara.

Researchers from the University of Hull, University College London and the Hull York Medical School stated that they were able to see how the reptile from New Zealand – which has teeth fused to its jaw bone – is able to chew without damaging its teeth.  ADNFCR-2621-ID-800062155-ADNFCR

Cosmetic dentistry saves the day after artist’s crown falls out

Thu

Cosmetic dentistry fixed an artist's tooth with hours to spare before a big exhibition. A journalist has spoken of his wife’s gratitude to the world of cosmetic dentistry after one of her crowns fell out before an important event.

Roddy Phillips of the Aberdeen Press and Journal said his spouse had been preparing for a solo exhibition of her work the following evening when her tooth came out in her hand.

After some panic and “hand-wringing” – as well as discussing the possibility that she should brave the photographers with an “astonishing black hole” in her teeth – the couple decided to seek out someone able to perform emergency cosmetic dentistry.

“The following forenoon and my wife went to her exhibition dentally intact,” Mr Phillips commented.

This comes in the same week that Dentistry.co.uk reported the story of a man whose tooth fell out the day before he was supposed to be an usher at his friend’s wedding.

He too sought emergency dentistry and was able to carry out his duties with all his teeth firmly in place.
