New toothpaste ‘offers unprecedented dental protection’


New toothpaste 'offers unprecedented dental protection'The dental expert responsible for a new toothpaste has said the product offers a level of dental protection that has never been seen before.

Speaking to the Daily Express, Dr Robert Gerlach said the Oral-B Pro-Expert paste keeps teeth free of plaque and prevents gum disease, suggesting it could help people avoid the need for emergency dentistry.

Although it will be one of the most expensive toothpastes on the market, the product has been shown to remove 96 per cent of surface stains within two weeks of brushing.

Dr Gerlach described it as "the next chapter of toothpaste technology".

He added: "It is unprecedented in what it does and it will improve oral hygiene in a short space of time."

According to guidelines from the British Dental Association (BDA), people should brush their teeth twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste.

The BDA recommends using small circular movements when brushing, as well as cleaning along the gum line in addition to the teeth themselves.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800632874-ADNFCR

The Toronto Sun said that the actor is set to play the part of Welsh rugby star Gareth Thomas in an upcoming movie and for the role, he needs to have the correct "gap-toothed" look.

Thomas is famous for being the first openly gay rugby player in the UK and currently plays as the captain of the Welsh team.

Speaking to the Daily Express, Rourke's agent Emanuele Palladino said that the actor is undergoing the cosmetic dentistry in order to make his portrayal of the sportsman as realistic as possible.

Dental implants ‘dramatically change a smile’


Dental implants 'dramatically change a smile'Dental implants are a good way to alter the appearance of a smile and give people a fresh look, according to experts.

Dr Aamer Khan and Lesley Reynolds Khan explained in an article for the Daily Express that implants are often fitted to replace missing or severely decayed teeth.

They described the procedure, which has to be performed under anaesthetic, as a permanent option that can reduce the signs of aging.

“Implants can dramatically change the shape of your mouth and stop face shrinkage in old age,” the pair commented.

The specialists informed individuals considering the work that it takes between three and six months for the jaw bones to adapt to the titanium rods, after which the replacement teeth are fitted.

US company GlamSmile recently encouraged people to opt for dental veneers when looking to improve their appearance rather than using over-the-counter teeth whitening products, which were described as less effective.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19882515-ADNFCR

Dental veneers 'make people look younger'Having dental veneers fitted to teeth can help people appear younger, experts have claimed.

Writing for the Daily Express, Dr Aamer Khan and Lesley Reynolds Khan gave advice on how cosmetic dentistry techniques can help people to combat the signs of aging.

The pair described how porcelain veneers can disguise and brighten the appearance of teeth to give a more youthful glow.

“They [veneers] can change your whole smile and the shape and colour of the teeth as well as cover stains and close gaps,” the professionals explained.

Commenting on the procedure, the dental professionals noted that once veneers have been placed on the teeth they can last for up to 20 years without needing replacing.

Other options recommended included laser contouring – which can alter the gum line – and teeth whitening to transform the colour.

A recent article by Press Distribution noted clear braces could help straighten and realign teeth.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19881206-ADNFCR

On discovering the neurotoxic protein – commonly used as an anti-aging method to remove wrinkles – could be used therapeutically by those who have suffered brain injuries, Winkler became ambassador for the Open Arms campaign, the Daily Express reports.

He said: “My mother had a stroke in 1989 and … this new therapeutic use of Botox for upper limb spasticity was not available to her. If it was it would have given her hope back.”

He explained that through the Open Arms campaign stroke victims can find out if they will benefit from the “life changing” therapeutic Botox.

The Open Arms campaign provides support and education to those living with upper limb spasticity on treatments available and how to manage the condition.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19814447-ADNFCR

A smile ‘can take ten years off’


People with a nice smile can look younger.

A bright smile can help a person knock up to ten years off their perceived age, it has been claimed.

Dr Thang Nghiem, director of London’s Ultrasmile dental practice, told national publication the Mirror that stained and discoloured teeth are particularly ageing and can make a person look much older than they actually are.

She commented: “We associate stained teeth with old age. But it’s so easy to treat. Restoring whiteness has the same effect as dyeing your hair – it turns back the clock instantly.”

Indeed, people have been advised to ensure they brush their teeth regularly and make sure to get off any stains when they appear. Furthermore, eating a healthy diet can also help to keep a person’s smile bright and white.

Elsewhere, the Daily Express recently reported Invisalign braces are becoming all the rage as more Brits say they would like to emulate the smile of Cheryl Cole than any other celebrity.

Cheryl Cole ‘has sought after smile’


X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has the most sought after smile in the UK, it has been claimed.

According to the Daily Express, Cole is an inspiration to thousands of Brits and many would like to achieve the same smile as the popstar.

The paper claimed some of the best ways to achieve this were to have professional teeth whitening and maintaining a good oral health routine by brushing and flossing regularly.

In addition, investing in an electric toothbrush could help a person remove more plaque than a manual.

Dr Mervyn Druian, whose London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry recently whitened the smiles of all 12 X Factor finalists, estimated that Cole’s perfect teeth cost in the region of £12,000.

Elsewhere, the Daily Mail recently reported that as part of Cole’s makeover programme she wears Invisalign braces to help keep her teeth perfect.

The newspaper claimed the popstar spends in excess of £200,000 a year on her appearance and has received up to eight dental veneers in the past.
