Tooth loss ‘is aging’

Fri

Tooth loss 'is aging'Looking after teeth can do more to prevent people looking older than plastic surgery, one group of specialists has claimed.

Dentists have explained how tooth loss can make individuals appear older than they are and that failing to floss can have long-term consequences, msnbc reports.

Poor dental hygiene could lead to gum disease, which if severe enough may damage the jaw bone and alter a person’s appearance, California dentist Dr Donald Clem warned.

He added that lips and cheeks look caved in and wrinkles become more prominent around the mouth.

Dr Eugene Antenucci furthered this theory, stating: “You register an older look because you see more spaces, less and uneven gum tissue.”

Oral health expert Dr Laura Torrado said that even if people attempt to have dental implants to correct the problem, the bone could be too extensively damaged for them to have a realistic affect.

Smokers were recently cautioned against the habit after it was revealed by WorlDental magazine that it could increase the risk of tooth loss.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19846970-ADNFCR

Expert tips for a whiter smile

Expert tips for a whiter smileTo get a whiter smile it is important to first have your teeth whitened and then follow a strict regime of a healthy diet and dental hygiene, a US dental expert has claimed.

Dr Laura Torrado told UsMagazine.com that teeth-whitening products would have no effect unless teeth have initially been professionally whitened.

The cosmetic dentist, whose clients include Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively, explained that avoiding food and drinks such as coffee, wine and berries would help to reduce staining, while chewing gum throughout the day would combat the build-up of plaque between meal times.

She advised that although mouthwash is good for combating bad breath it would not remove stains and instead people should ensure they brush their teeth twice a day and floss regularly.

The positive effects of laser teeth whitening were recently reported by the Daily Mail, which stated that people who had received the treatment found their teeth to be up to six shades brighter after one application.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19819976-ADNFCR

National Smile Month advice for Brits

Fri

Brits advised about oral health during National Smile Month.

People across the UK have been told to brush twice daily as part of a new campaign launched to commemorate National Smile Month.

Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, has stated people should be doing more to ensure they do not lose their teeth as they get older and, as such, the organisation has launched its new Teeth4Life campaign.

He commented: “Use of interdental brushes and floss has risen but those who use them are still in the minority. So, things have improved but there is still a long way to go.”

Meanwhile, Hollywood actress and pop star Jessica Simpson was recently told by dentists to start brushing her teeth, after it emerged that instead of doing so, she relies on mouthwash only to remove any plaque from her teeth.

New York-based cosmetic dentist Dr Laura Torrado argued that, if this were the case, she could be running an extremely high risk of developing gum disease in the years ahead
