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.

Dr. Sands, Kim Kardashian’s dentist reveals all….

Dr. Sands has said that the secret to Kim’s beautiful smile is simply undergoing teeth whitening and Invisalign braces. According to Dr. Sands, Kim has teeth whitening twice a year to ensure a dazzlingly white smile. At age twenty-eight she also had Invisalign clear braces to straighten her misaligned smile. The results from Invisalign, coupled with regular whitening, has given her one on the most well-known smiles in Hollywood.

Dr. Sands’ expert advice was featured on Hollywoodlife.com. “For optimal results, you should get a cleaning before you get a whitening — any plaque on your teeth will not bleach. You need to avoid coloured foods for the first 48 hours after your teeth whitening. Your pores are more exposed and susceptible to stain.” Therefore, if you would like a smile like Kim’s then Invisalign treatment and teeth whitening are the way forward.

Hormone replacement therapy could reduce the risk of gum disease

Thu

Latest News

A new study has shown that hormone replacement therapy could reduce the risk of gum disease. Also known as HRT, hormone replacement therapy is usually prescribed to combat common symptoms of the menopause. However, now scientists are suggesting that there could be oral health benefits to the medication too. During the menopause, women can become more susceptible to oral health problems. This is due to a decrease in oestrogen levels. The new research has shown that HRT can help to protect women from these issues developing.

Researchers on the project studied four hundred and ninety-two women. The age range spanned from fifty to eighty-seven. The scientists discovered that gum disease was less prevalent in the one hundred and thirteen women who were undergoing HRT. There was a forty-four percent decrease in the disease in this group. These women were receiving HRT for osteoporosis.

Dr JoAnn Pinkerton, executive of the American Moenopause Society, released a statement. This explained how osteoporosis can have a knock-on effect on the whole body. One of these issues is a weakening of the jaw bone. As a result of this, women can suffer from increased risk of gum disease. However, going forward, hormone replacement therapy could reduce the risk of gum disease in this age range. This could be a valuable discovery for women’s oral health.

Latest News

A Milton Keynes dentist volunteered in Nepal recently, through the Dentaid charity. Anne Martin Powders wanted to give something back to people less fortunate. Following the earthquake that hit Nepal in 2015, the country has struggled to rebuild itself. Therefore, vital dental supplies have been in short supply. The Dentaid project has been supporting schools, orphanages, and street children in the affected areas. They have been providing dental care and education to some of the poorest children in the country.

Anne was part of a team of volunteers that visited the country for two weeks. She reported that it was ‘heartbreaking’ to see the street children in such a predicament. However, the presence of the volunteers helped to provide essential dental care. Anne also spoke of the excitement of the children at the orphanages when the team arrived. As well as dental care they handed out toys, toothbrushes, and toothpaste. They also provided demonstrations to the children on how to brush their teeth properly. Without volunteers like Anne, these children may not have received the vital care that they need.
