Wed

Botox injections to treat migraines in IndiaIndividuals contemplating Botox injections to ward off the earliest signs of ageing could be surprised to hear there are alternative uses for the substance.

According to the Hindustan Times, the anti-wrinkle procedure is set to be used as a form of treatment for people suffering from migraines in India.

This news comes after Allergan, the substance's manufacturer, was given the green light from the country's Drug Controller General to use the injections for medical purposes.

As part of the move, individuals suffering from chronic headaches more than 15 times per month will qualify to receive Botox treatment, which is said to relieve the symptoms for up to three months.

Raghu Kumar, managing director of Allergan India, said: "Patients can now avail a new preventive treatment option that will reduce their time duration spent in pain resulting in better quality of life."

Meanwhile, the company has recently been given the nod to develop Botox with the hope of helping people who suffer from urinary incontinence.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800695380-ADNFCR

Aussie kids ‘ignoring oral health’

Wed

Aussie kids suffering from decayChildren in Australia are failing to take good care of their teeth, which could result in trips to the emergency dentist.

According to two reports from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, almost half of the country's children aged five to six have a history of decay in their baby teeth.

"Since the mid-1990s, children seem to be getting more decay and that's been slowly increasing," Prof Roberts-Thomson said.

The data showed that children are drinking less fluoridated tap water and this could be an important factor in the reduction of oral hygiene in youngsters.

Meanwhile, the Hindustan Times recently reported that toothpastes and mouth wash that contains added fluoride has a significant benefit for the strength of teeth.

The publication stated that ensuring a larger consumption of fluoride could be the solution to teeth that may be weakened as a result of a sugary diet, which could cause bacteria to break down the surface of the teeth.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800683344-ADNFCR

Fluoride toothpaste can limit risk of decayEmergency dentistry patients looking for ways to ensure their oral health is maintained should use a mouthwash containing fluoride.

The substance, also found in a number of brands of toothpaste, helps ward off tooth decay by strengthening the protective enamel that surrounds the pearly whites.

Ensuring a larger consumption of fluoride could be the solution to teeth that may be weakened as a result of a sugary diet, which could cause bacteria to break down the surface of the teeth.

This advice is echoed by the Hindustan Times, which recently claimed that the substance could make the top layer of the tooth more resistant to attack.

Avoiding sugary drinks, chewing sugar-free gum and consuming a healthy, well-balanced diet were also recommended to ensure oral health is maintained.

About Dentistry advises individuals to eat a variety of healthy foods from all food groups, as well as drinking plenty of water to make sure teeth remain in good condition.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800635664-ADNFCR

Botox ‘can reduce body odour’

Tue

Botox 'can reduce body odour'Botox has emerged as an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure which helps remove wrinkles and other signs of aging from the face.

However, new research has suggested it can also be used to serve another purpose – reducing sweat and body odour levels when injected under the armpit.

Although results are temporary, the injection deactivates nerves which stimulate the sweat gland and can help relieve excessive perspiration.

In an interview with Indian newspaper the Hindustan Times, cosmetic dermatologist Dr Apratim Goel said his Cutis Skin Studio clinic attracts at least eight to ten people who want the procedure before the start of summer, with most of them in the 25 to 35 age group.

He added: "The procedure is done under the skin and that makes it completely safe."

Meanwhile, Botox has increasingly been acknowledged as a medical treatment in recent years, with US scientists from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre in Washington concluding it can be used to treat cerebral palsy and a number of other illnesses. ADNFCR-2621-ID-800479258-ADNFCR
