Inter Milan defender Maicon loses tooth

Sat

Inter defender loses tooth in Champions League semi-final.

Inter Milan defender Maicon lost a tooth in a challenge from Barcelona playmaker Lionel Messi when the two sides met on April 20th. 

Maicon was attempting to clear the ball from the penalty area but Messi jumped and did not see the Brazilian, catching him squarely on the jaw with his shoulder.

The resulting impact led to Maicon’s tooth being visibly ejected from his mouth.

Fortunately for the defender, his team won 3 – 1 on the night. However, it remains to be seen whether he will be fit for the second of leg of the Champions League semi-final at Camp Nou next week.

Elsewhere, Michael Thomas, from the Wessex Dental Specialist Centre, recently claimed that busy people should take the time to look after their teeth properly.

He argued that having the forethought to stay on top of dental health issues will help people avoid costly and painful emergency dentistry treatments.

Oral health ‘key to healthy heart’

Oral health linked to heart disease risk.

Overall health can be greatly impacted upon by a lack of oral hygiene, it has been argued.

According to My Republica, Shyamsehkar Bikram Rana of People’s Dental College & Hospital at Naya Bazaar has said that instances of coronary heart disease are more common in those individuals who do not maintain a good oral health routine and especially in those who suffer from gingivitis.

The American Academy of Periodontology stated: “People with periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease as those without periodontal disease.”

Elsewhere, Michael Thomas, from the Wessex Dental Specialist Centre, recently claimed that busy people should take the time to look after their teeth properly and there should be no excuse for those who say they do not have the time to brush and floss their teeth daily.

Indeed, Mr Thomas said that having the forethought to stay on top of dental health issues will help people avoid costly and painful emergency dentistry treatments in the future.

Cost puts Brits off visiting dentists

Rising costs are putting people off having check-ups.

More people are putting off visits to the dentist because of money worries, new research has discovered.

SimplyHealth’s Annual Dental Survey for 2010, which questioned 1,005 working adults earlier this year, found that one in ten of those surveyed admitted to not having a dentist at all.

One in 30 parents also claimed that they had never taken their children to a dentist because of financial constraints.

In addition, the poll found that 35 per cent of those not seeking regular dental treatment revealed that this has had a negative impact on their oral health.

Michael Thomas, practising dentist, explained that those people not receiving regular check-ups could be forced to seek emergency dentistry when their problems became worse.

He said: “Failure to look after your teeth can have an impact not just on your oral health, but that of your entire body – and in some cases can result in problems requiring severe treatment.”

SimplyHealth’s annual poll also disclosed that companies are increasingly including dentistry as a staff benefit because of its popularity and effect on absences.

‘Take the time’ to look after teeth

Tue

People should ensure they look after their oral health.

Busy people should take the time to look after their teeth properly, it has been argued.

Michael Thomas, from the Wessex Dental Specialist Centre, claimed having the forethought to stay on top of dental health issues will help people avoid costly and painful emergency dentistry treatments in the future and could help them keep a bright and appealing smile for the rest of their life.

He said: “As the mouth is the gateway to the body, a healthy mouth will be part of having a healthy body and leading a healthy lifestyle.”

Elsewhere, Dentistry IQ recently reported that Chicago periodontist Dr Robert Pick has stated that people should be aware of the dangers of not flossing regularly, as this can lead to gingivitis and other periodontal diseases.

Indeed, he claimed poor oral health is a contributory factor to cardiovascular disease and this accounts for the deaths of more than 2,400 people per day.
