Irish man’s amazing teeth transformation

Irish man’s amazing teeth transformation: Fifty-five-year-old Patrick Naughton has undergone an amazing smile transformation thanks to 3Dental in Dublin.

As a child, Patrick had all his milk teeth removed. This left him with severe complications due to there being no structure to guide his growing adult teeth. Therefore, when they erupted, they grew at angles and caused a very unsightly smile.

Patrick decided to get professional help for his teeth after his son had finished his education, and contacted the team at 3Dental. The fifty-five-year-old joked to the Independent Ireland, “I think my teeth frightened the guys when I met with them at first.” Initially, they extracted some of his teeth, then for the first three months, he had to wear wires. Following that, he had an array of dental work, and now has crowns, dental implants and some of his own teeth in place. The process took a year to complete.

Patrick remained positive throughout the process and says that since the work has been finished his confidence has ‘soared’. The treatment has changed his life, and he no longer avoids parties and celebrations through fear of smiling.

Irish men are using Botox as ‘good grooming’

Mon

If rumours in the world of cosmetic surgery are to be believed, more Irish men are turning to Botox treatment to improve their complexion, and many of them view it as part of their regular grooming schedule.

48-year-old Peter Hosford from Dublin spoke to The Irish Independent about the procedure and said that he has been getting Botox injections since he was 35 and sees it as part of general maintenance; something no more invasive than dying hair. ‘It’s not like going under the knife, it erases the lines very naturally and you just look fresher,’ he told the paper, adding that he initially attended appointments in Dublin but found it too expensive overall, so he switched to a clinic in Newry four years ago, after a friend recommended the change.

Peter explained the decision to swap clinics, saying ‘It’s an hour door-to-door and it’s definitely worth it for the savings – you pay 250 euros or 300 euros in Dublin for one area of the face, whereas you’d get three areas done in Newry for that price.’ He also said that he has no qualms about undergoing the procedure regularly, saying ‘There’s still a bit of a taboo about it with a lot of people, but I see it as part of good grooming and looking after yourself, so I’d be very open about it.’

Good oral care could save your life

Tue

According to a recent scientific study, failing to brush your teeth properly could have a serious impact on the health of your heart. Researchers from the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin have revealed that harmful bacteria found in the mouth can cause life-threatening blood clots, and could also trigger the rare condition infective endocarditis.

The killer bug – called streptococcus gordonii – enters the bloodstream through bleeding gums and thickens the blood, causing it to clot. Inside the thick clots, the bacteria are protected from the body’s natural defences and any antibiotics that might be prescribed, leaving it free to cause havoc with the immune system and organ function. Infective endocarditis could develop if the clots grow on the valves of the heart; a dangerous and possibly fatal condition.

Scientists from Bristol University were also involved in the study and joined their colleagues from Dublin at a conference last week for the Society for General Microbiology. Both sets of researchers are hoping to create a new drug to combat infective endocarditis and prevent blood clots forming on the heart.

Professor Damien Walmsley, of the British Dental Association, spoke of similar results after a study in 2010; ‘The findings contribute to our understanding of the relationship between gum disease and heart disease. It also underlines the importance of brushing teeth twice a day.’
