Nanoparticles are helping to improve dental surgery

Nanoparticles are helping to improve dental surgeryNanoparticles are helping to improve dental surgery according to the latest study at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. The research has discovered that nanoparticles containing enzymes are effective in undertaking basic dental surgeries while protecting healthy tissue.

Lead researcher, Avi Schroeder, spoke to Phys.org about the new findings. “The existing scalpel cannot distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue. However, enzymes can. Proteolytic enzymes are tuned to degrade specific tissues, without harming other healthy tissues. We believe that in the future surgeries must be more accurate, with less damage to healthy tissues.”

There were also positive findings in relation to orthodontics. The tests showed that prior treatment with the nanoparticles improved many areas within the orthodontic process. These included better alignment during the treatment, less pain and discomfort, and less tooth relapse afterward. Potentially, this nanotechnology could dramatically improve a patient’s experience when undergoing teeth straightening. An added bonus is the body uses natural enzymes throughout the process. It is unsure at this time if, or when, this process will be available to the public.

Jason Donovan uses Botox to repair his vocal cordsIt has been reported on the popular ITV morning television show, Lorainne, that Jason Donovan uses Botox to repair his vocal cords. The star has suffered many setbacks over recent years and was desperate to get his career back on track following a speight of issues with his voice.

A top medical team suggested a series of holistic therapies, including Botox. The Botox was administered into the star’s larynx to help relax the tight muscles around the voice box. The star then joked about having a double treatment for his larynx and his forehead. “I said to the therapist if you fancy putting it in my forehead I would be very happy about that.”

The star said that the issues he had experienced with his voice were a wake-up call for him. Following this, he has learned to look after himself better and not push too hard. The Botox seems to have helped him dramatically and has allowed him to start performing again. Due to Botox, the public may be seeing a lot more of Jason in the near future.

Dental fear has long been an issue for many people, however, investment in holistic therapies appears to be paying off. The main aim of the project is to deal with dental fear at an early age.

CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) can tackle a multitude of phobias. Most people find this method helpful and successful. Because of this, Swedish Medical University, Karolinska Institutet, has developed a new Cognitive Therapy Program for children and have gained some very interesting results.

The modules were delivered over a video chat platform by a trained psychologist. Surprisingly, over half the children in the study were completely free of dental fear or anxiety after only one year. Addressing the problem of dental phobia from a young age could allow many more people to access important treatment. Therefore, decreasing the numbers of people suffering from ill dental health.

A white smile is so iconic as part of the fashion ‘must-haves’ that it has overtaken the little black dress. Teeth whitening is now the most requested cosmetic treatment on the market.

Latest News

New dental laser developmentsNew dental laser developments are showing possible additional benefits, with the potential strengthening of tooth enamel. The invention of the laser in the sixties has helped to advance dental treatment dramatically. Although the initial lasers were unable to be of any benefit, developments in the technology made them more user-friendly for dental professionals. Lasers are often used for removing soft tissue in the mouth. It now seems that there is another possible use for the humble laser.

Researcher, Peter Rechmann, a professor at UCSF School of Dentistry believes that they are on the brink of making a revolutionary breakthrough. Professor Rechmann (PhD) and his team have spent many years researching and developing laser dentistry with the ultimate goal of stopping cavities before they occur.

The laser is also a great alternative to the drill. The dental drill is a terrifying prospect for some dental patients. Therefore, this new laser development could make dental treatment much more accessible and also very beneficial. Professor Rechmann believes that laser dentistry will soon be more commercially available. Watch this space!

Latest News

Big support for Mouth Cancer Action MonthA Luton dentist is among many professionals offering big support for Mouth Cancer Action Month. Dentists across the country are providing dental check-ups and information on mouth cancer awareness to help patients identify the signs. Mouth cancer can present itself in the form of tumours that develop in the lip, gums, or salivary glands, as well as on the tongue, or the floor of the mouth.

Mouth cancer has increased at an alarming rate and dentists all around the country are urging patients to be vigilant. Luckily, growing public awareness of mouth cancer is helping people to spot the signs sooner and know what to look for. However, there is still work to be done. Early detection can often mean better survival rates. This sentiment was echoed by the MyDentist clinical director, Nyree Whitley. “It’s not all bad news, by making sure patients have regular check-ups we can diagnose more mouth cancers at an early stage. Early treatment drastically increases the chances of beating the disease, as this prevents the cancer from developing.”

New 3D printed braces could cut down the time needed for orthodontic work

New 3D printed braces could cut down the time needed for orthodontic workNew 3D printed braces could cut down the time needed for orthodontic work, the Daily Mail has reported. The new product is said to have lights and a battery fitted onto each tooth. Now, this may sound like a strange idea, however, it is thought that light therapy can enhance and speed up bone regeneration. It is this element that could cut the time needed to straighten teeth.

Light therapy can potentially alter the DNA in the cells and, therefore, help increase the energy supply to the tooth. This action could help speed up the orthodontic process in what is deemed a safe way. The device will be programmed by a trained professional to apply the correct amount of light therapy for each tooth. The LED lights will be powered by a non-toxic lithium battery.

Another great thing about the technology is that the light cannot be seen. This is due to the wavelength that the light operates on. Many people could benefit from this new technology and also be saved some of the discomfort that traditional braces produce. Watch this space!
