US woman arrested for administering counterfeit Botox treatment


US woman arrested for administering counterfeit Botox treatmentA woman in the US has been arrested by police officers after administering dangerous fake Botox treatments on two people.

Diana Marcela Cardenas-Gonzalez was taken into police custody after the patients developed cysts on their faces, NBC Miami reports.

The Colombia native performed the potentially dangerous anti-wrinkle procedure in her Miami home, despite being unlicensed.

According to the police report, the two women contacted Ms Cardenas-Gonzalez upon developing the facial growths. However, the Miramar resident recommended they met her to receive a facial massage.

The report said: "[Cardenas-Gonzalez] injected both victims about the face using a syringe which was alleged to contain Botox in exchange for US currency."

People contemplating receiving the cosmetic treatment are advised to check their practitioner is appropriately qualified by requesting to see official documentation.

Miami dentist praises Invisalign braces


Invisalign braces have been praised again.A dentist from Miami has been singing the praises of Invisalign braces after using them at his practice.

Dr Hamid Nassery from the Miami Beach Dental Institute told World News Report that he finds the correctors an ideal way to realign teeth without having to use traditional, train track-style varieties.

"For our patients, the option is often a win-win situation," he commented. "Invisalign offers patients the chance to enjoy a beautiful smile while undergoing orthodontic work."

Dr Nassery added that the technology is helping to prevent the problem of adults avoiding having dental work done because they are self-conscious about their appearance.

Last month, Dr Darren Dickson from Plano in Texas also lauded Invisalign braces, saying they prevent the need for extensive follow-up appointments.

He explained that this particularly appeals to busy young professionals who cannot afford long periods of time off work in which to have their teeth fixed.

Veneers and Invisalign braces help football player keep on playing


Dental veneers and Invislaign have helped a football player.  A combination of dental veneers and Invisalign braces has helped one football player to correct his misaligned teeth without missing any games.

Michael Abalos from San Antonio in the US had extremely uneven teeth and a protruding lower jaw, but was worried that treatment would mean years in metal braces, extensive surgery and months away from his semi-professional career.

Fortunately, he sought the help of Dr John Moore, who tried a pioneering combination of dental veneers and Invisalign braces to straighten out the athlete's smile without any need for surgery.

The orthodontist said it was clear that Mr Abalos did not want to compromise his career.

"So I stick him in the veneers, get him into the Invisalign and move the lower teeth in, and boom! The whole thing is over in less than a year," he explained.

Earlier this month, Dr Stephen Grussmark from Miami credited Invisalign with making the correction of a teenage boy's overbite much easier.

A teenager's cosmetic dentistry was made easier by Invisalign braces. An orthodontist in the US has credited Invisalign braces with making the process of correcting an overbite much easier.

Dr Stephen Grussmark from Miami said he used the technology on an 18-year-old patient in lieu of a traditional metal brace, despite popular belief that the plastic correctors are only useful in non-surgical cases.

He pointed out that Invisalign can be used in the months building up to surgery.

"The jaws won't meet properly because the teeth are not in the right place, so we have to get the teeth in proper position so that when the surgery is done, the teeth will meet," Dr Grussmark commented.

He said just six months using Invisalign meant that his teenage patient was prepared for his operation without having to waste time going back and to for adjustments – instead, the invisible braces were created using computerisation and fitted in minutes.

Last month, recommended Invisalign braces as the ideal way to transform anyone's smile without interfering too much in their everyday lives.
