Chin fillers on the rise

Thu

Latest News

Chin fillers on the riseA new trend has seen chin fillers on the rise. Dr. Esho, a well known cosmetic surgeon, explains that Dermal Fillers for the chin are growing in popularity. He believes, due to the boom in lip fillers, people are also undergoing chin fillers to help balance the proportions of the face. Dr. Esho spoke to Harpers Bazaar. “Precise injections of filler are injected into the chin to realign the shape in position with the lips and the rest of the face.”

However, Dr. Ourian of the Beverly Hills Clinic, Epione, has a different explanation. He believes that the massive growth is due to another reason. He attributes it to the fact that dermal fillers are not a permanent solution so are, therefore, customisable in the short term. This gives people the versatility to change their look from time to time without requiring permanent implant surgery. Dr. Ourian has an array of celebrity clients, including, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.

Whatever the reason for this sudden increase, people are seeing the benefits of dermal fillers as an alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgeries.

Did Pippa Middleton have a wedding smile makeover?

Did Pippa Middleton have a wedding smile makeover?Did Pippa Middleton have a wedding smile makeover? the rumour is that yes she did. Reports have emerged that the now Pippa Matthews underwent cosmetic dentistry in preparation for her wedding day.

What the experts say – Did Pippa Middleton have a wedding smile makeover?

Dental expert, Dr. Rhona Eskander, believes that Pippa has gone through a process which is classed as the ‘gold standard’ of dentistry. This involves aligning the teeth, applying whitening bleach, and then using composite bonding to improve the shape. Collectively these procedures can make a big difference to the overall look of someone’s smile.

Dr Eskander gave her professional opinion to the Daily Mail. “Looking at photos of Pippa as a child, it is possible to see that she had more widely spaced teeth and like her sister Kate and may have had a fixed brace as a youngster. However, like Kate, whose teeth relapsed and who had further orthodontic treatment as an adult, I suspect Pippa has had the same.” Dr. Eskander also believes the honorary royal may have undergone Invisalign treatment to straighten her teeth in a discreet way.

Dermal fillers are seen as an effective treatment for acne scars

Latest News

Dermal fillers are seen as an effective treatment for acne scarsA clinical trial, shared by Medical News Bulletin, has revealed more evidence that dermal fillers are seen as an effective treatment for acne scars. Acne (also known as acne vulgatis) affects around eighty percent of adolescents. Subsequently, this often means prominent scarring and loss of confidence and self-esteem. During the study, a range of dermal fillers were reviewed. One of which was the temporary filler, hyaluronic acid. This type of filler is commonly used by celebrities and the general public to add volume to the face and lips. However, the review suggests that hyaluronic acid can also be very effective at smoothing and softening acne scars, and is in fact underutilised.

Current developments are aiming towards dermatologists being able to prescribe dermal fillers as part of their treatment plans. This is an exciting and innovative step towards minimising the effects of acne. A welcome development for many that suffer from it. Dermal fillers may also be available for topical administering in the future. Although, this treatment may need to be coupled with a laser procedure.

Rise in Invisalign Teen orthodonticsLatest News

A recent rise in Invisalign Teen orthodontics is sweeping the nation. Historically, teenagers have undergone traditional teeth straightening methods to achieve a beautiful smile. However, now more and more teens are turning to Invisalign Teen for a more discreet service.

Invisalign is able to tackle an abundance of orthodontic problems such as overcrowding, problems with under or over bite, gaps and much more. Also, a great bonus with Invisalign is there is no need for emergency appointments to fix broken wires or fittings.

Another great aspect of the treatment is the specially designed Invisalign app which can be downloaded to a smartphone. This app allows teens to take selfie photos of their teeth between appointments to track their progress. The app uses intricate algorithms to monitor the teeth and will also send out alerts to say when it is time to move on to the next aligner. Invisalign is a great way of straightening teeth without drawing attention to the process. Many teens are over the moon that this treatment is now available.

Millennial’s created a boom in cosmetic dentistry

Latest News

Millennial's created a boom in cosmetic dentistryOver recent years millennial’s created a boom in cosmetic dentistry by accessing what is known as preventative botox. This type of treatment has seen a huge rise among men and women in their twenties. Botox has been legally approved by the FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) since 2002, therefore, recently celebrated its fifteenth birthday. Since then a sharp rise in millennials using Botox has been seen. One 26-year-old woman spoke to King5.com. “My makeup goes on really smooth. If you’ve got an event where you are wearing concealer, you don’t have any creases. I have noticed that the more I get Botox, the less I have to go and get it done, so it lasts longer in between treatments.”

Classed as ‘aging softly’, the treatment uses smaller amounts of Botox, therefore, ends up being cheaper and more effective. The treatments are helping people to maintain smoother skin and help to stop wrinkles forming in the future. Botox works by freezing the muscle movement within the face, however, it is not a permanent procedure like many other cosmetic treatments. For many, it is a great alternative to more invasive surgeries.

Pitchside dental treatment for Lionel Messi

Sat

Latest News

Pitchside dental treatment for Lionel MessiDuring the famous El Classico clash pitchside dental treatment for Lionel Messi was needed. Messi suffered an elbow to the mouth during the first half of the game. Barcelona’s team of dentists and medics were on hand to give the star pitchside treatment for his injuries.

Messi was temporarily patched up by the team and returned to the pitch with gauze in his mouth. Inevitably Messi will have needed further treatment after the game. However, Barca’s dentists made the call that he was safe to continue playing after receiving the pitchside treatment. This, in turn, facilitated him being able to score the winning goal in the last seconds of the game.

Due to the skill, dedication, and professionalism of the dentists and medics at Barcelona the players are supported and treated to enable them to play their best possible football. It could be argued that without the dental intervention he received Barcelona may not have won the match. This just goes to show the important role dentists play within sport.

Latest News

NHS dentistry satisfaction is on the riseA recent poll revealed that NHS dentistry satisfaction is on the rise. The survey was carried out by the National Centre for Social Research between July and October last year. The sample interviewed was around three thousand. People were asked about their general satisfaction with the NHS, and also about individual services.

When the data was analysed it showed that NHS dentistry satisfaction has risen by seven percent. This takes the figures up to sixty-one percent. This is the highest public satisfaction rating since the beginning of the nineties. As you can imagine, the BDA (British Dental Association) have welcomed the news that satisfaction is on the rise. Following this, they are encouraging dentists to build on the results and to continue to take pride in their work. The poll has proved that, despite the funding cuts, dentists are still working hard to provide the best possible care for their patients. The BDA chairman, Mick Armstrong was quoted on dentistry.co.uk. “This profession can take pride in the fact that public satisfaction in NHS dentistry has hit a near 20 year high, in spite of chronic underfunding and discredited contracts.” This news a great step in the right direction for dentistry.

Jaw Reconstruction Using 3D Printing

Fri

Latest News

An Australian woman has undergone a full jaw reconstruction using 3D printing technology. Back in 1989, Susie Robinson was twenty years old. One night while she was driving with friends her car left the road in a horrific accident.Jaw Reconstruction Using 3D Printing  When police arrived on the scene they were shocked to find that everyone in the car had survived. However, they were all left with life-changing scars and injuries. Ms. Robinson suffered from a shattered jaw. Surgeons had to use thirty pins and many meters of wire to hold her jaw together. She also lost her four front teeth.

For years after the accident, Ms. Robinson underwent numerous surgeries to try and fix the problem. Despite this, her jaw was never completely repaired. Therefore, she decided to opt for a new technology. The 3D printer is used to print a perfectly fitting titanium jawbone implant. This is then held in place by micro screws. Once the implant is in place, over time, the natural bone grows around the implant. Dental teeth implants can also be fixed to the structure. With the success of this pioneering jaw reconstruction using 3D printing, dental reconstruction surgery could potentially develop in unimaginable ways. For Ms. Robinson, it was the answer to a nearly three-decade problem.

New nano technology for dental implants

Mon

Latest News

A group of UK researchers and scientists have developed a new nano technology for dental implants. The new nano coating is said to reduce the risk of peri-implantitis developing. Peri-implantitis is inflammation around the implant and is the main cause of their failure.

The nano-coating is made up of titanium oxide, silver, and hydroxyapatite. In the trials these helped to stop the growth of bacteria and also bacteria biofilm by nearly ninety-eight percent. Therefore, a significant breakthrough in fighting implant failure. As well as fighting bacteria the nano coating helped the implants successfully attach to the bone.

Professor Chris Tredwin is part of the scientific research team. He is also Head of Plymouth University’s Dentistry School. Professor Tredwin had this to say about their findings. “We have identified the means to protect dental implants against the most common cause of their failure. The potential of our work for increased patient comfort and satisfaction, and reduced costs is great and we look forward to translating our findings into clinical practice.” Therefore, the new discovery could mean that dental implant failure could soon be a thing of the past.
