Fight between amateur footballers leads to emergency dentistry


A fight on a football pitch led to emergency dentistry for one man last year.An amateur footballer was left needing emergency dentistry after being punched by his teammate, a court has heard.

According to the Ballymoney Times, 24-year-old Adrian William Thompson hit his unnamed former friend after discovering that he had begun a relationship with his ex-girlfriend.

However, he punched the man harder than he intended and knocked out both of his front teeth in November last year.

This week, he was convicted of actual bodily harm at North Antrim Magistrates Court and ordered to pay compensation to the victim to cover his emergency dentistry.

"Whatever the background your behaviour was not acceptable. There are ways to sort things out … the way you sorted it out was totally wrong," said District Judge Richard Wilson.

According to the British Dental Health Foundation, there are several ways to fill gaps created by missing teeth using cosmetic dentistry and anyone who is affected should speak to a reputable dentist.

Research uncovers potential new generation of dental implants


Researchers have been looking at rats and mice to better the technology of dental implants.Dentists may soon be giving patients a new generation of dental implants after research suggested stem cells could be used to reattach teeth.

Scientists at the University of Illinois in Chicago have published research which details how the cells were used to anchor the teeth of rats and mice back into their jawbones.

After only four months, the stem cells had aligned and formed new attachments which firmly reattached the lost teeth.

In the control group that did not use stem cells, the molars fell back out again or were only loosely attached.

It is hoped that the findings could be used in the future as an alternative to traditional dental implants.

However, as this may still be some way from the present day, anyone in need of cosmetic dentistry should be reassured that dental implants used now are very reliable and are sure to make a big difference to people who have missing teeth.

Dental implants market ‘worth billions’


The dental implant industry is set to grow over the next five years, according to an American research company.Dental implants are rising in popularity, a new report has revealed.

Tooth implants will be worth around $4.2 billion [£2.7 billion] by 2015, up from this year’s value of $3.2 billion, the survey by research company MarketsandMarkets estimated.

Over 40 per cent of dental implant customers will be based in Europe and around 30 per cent are expected to be from North America, with expectations coming from current figures showing that Europeans have the largest market in cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic dentistry’s increasing popularity and the emergence of new technology are the reasons behind the rise, noted the organisation.

The US-based company estimates that between two and three per cent of the global population have already had the dental implants, describing them as the “most comprehensive and long-term solutions” for replacing missing teeth.

A single implant can be placed in half an hour, the Association of Dental Implantology claims, although the healing process can take several months.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19894828-ADNFCR

Dental implants ‘give a long-lasting effect’


Dental implants 'give a long-lasting effect'Dental implants are a safer and more natural way to get a long-lasting perfect smile.

This is the opinion of experts at WorlDental, who recommended the procedure as better than the traditional bridges and caps, which can often cause irritation to gums and teeth.

Despite the higher costs, dental implants are worth it in the long run as they can last a lifetime, the news portal noted.

The information provider stated that having the technology fitted can help to correct damaged or missing teeth and markedly improve their appearance.

“A high-tech dental implant … causes no long or short-term damage and doesn’t depend on support from neighbouring teeth,” it explained.

The website described how the surgery requires patients to have the implant embedded in the jawbone and then an artificial tooth is fitted where the missing original should be.

Dr Alex Farnoosh recently encouraged patients to look after their teeth in order to avoid needing emergency dentistry and maintain overall health.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19888118-ADNFCR

Dental veneers ‘give a whiter smile’


Dental veneers 'give a whiter smile'Rather than spending money on over-the-counter whitening products one company has recommended having dental veneers fitted.

US company GlamSmile described how veneers give a longer-lasting and more effective result than chemical bleaching treatments.

The organisation encouraged people looking for a whiter smile to consider the benefits of having the procedure, which it explained had developed significantly over recent years and is now relatively quick and pain-free.

Patients were advised that they would no longer need to be anaesthetised while the dental work is carried out, as the process is now less invasive.

It stressed that teeth whitening toothpastes and mouth trays would have to be reused every few months in order to maintain the desired effect, whereas the veneers are good value for money, due to their durability.

Dr Albert Wesley recently advised individuals to move away from traditional bridges and opt to have dental implants fitted instead to disguise missing teeth, reported.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19866580-ADNFCR

Brits have 109 million teeth missing


Brits have 109 million teeth missing
British adults have 109 million missing teeth, with more people in Scotland having spaces in their mouths than anywhere else, according to new research.

Dental implant supplier Implantium Network carried out the study and found that while 20 per cent of the population have more than five teeth missing, over half have one or more absent.

Concern over costs accounted for why a considerable amount had not been to have implants fitted, while 20 per cent said they were unaware of the treatment.

Missing teeth were blamed for why people failed to get job interviews and promotions among 350,000 of those interviewed.

Meanwhile, 15 per cent said the gaps in their mouth left them feeling self conscious and in some cases people reported feeling depressed.

Jason Buglass, managing director of the Implantium Network, said: “These findings are staggering and the implications are huge.”

The organisation recently revealed that more than a third of Scots had let fear of the dentist keep them from having their teeth checked in five years.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19841702-ADNFCR

Dental implants ‘cut hassle’


Dental implants can be the perfect solution for individuals with missing teeth and dental professionals have become increasingly adept at the procedures in recent years, reducing hassle for patients, it has been claimed.

According to Dental Implants Associates in Chicago, establishing the treatment as a common occurrence has led to the creation of bespoke facilities for the manufacture of these dental tools, leading to shorter waiting times for patients.

Indeed, dentists are now able to hold consultations with patients on what they wish to achieve from the treatment and have the implants ordered, manufactured and ready to be fitted in no time at all.

Elsewhere, Tooth Implants in Chicago recently claimed that the introduction of dental implants has helped to revolutionise the way tooth loss is treated in recent years.

The company stated that dental implants have become a mainstay of the industry, marking a sharp change from the previous options of dentures and bridges for those who suffered tooth loss.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19804942-ADNFCR

Smiles ‘can be enhanced’ with cosmetic dentistry


Cosmetic dentistry can have a positive impact on a person’s smile.

Anyone worried about the appearance of their smile has been reassured that there are treatments available that can help them solve this problem.

Daily Breaking News reported that cosmetic dentistry has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years and there is now a procedure to help even the most difficult of issues.

For example, missing teeth can be replaced using permanent dental implants, meaning people no longer have to rely on dentures, while those with extremely stained and discoloured teeth – be it through smoking or drinking large amounts of coffee – can have their smile brightened using the latest teeth whitening techniques.

Meanwhile, this month is National Smile Month in the UK and, as such, Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, has said that Brits should be doing all they can to keep their teeth healthy and clean.

Indeed, in order to further this message, the organisation has launched its new Teeth4Life campaign.

Video games ‘can make for bad teeth’


Brits warned that excessive game playing could harm teeth.

Research has been published which claims that playing excessive amounts of video games could be responsible for a rise in poor oral health in children.

A study by the University of Iowa revealed that children who are “heavy gamers” have, in general, a diet which is conducive to tooth decay.

The report stated that children who have more strictly controlled gaming tames have better oral health overall, possibly due to the provision of more regular meals.

Elsewhere, the North West Public Health Observatory recently published research showing children in East Lancashire have the worst teeth in England.

The report revealed that 51 per cent of 1,232 children aged five examined in the Blackburn with Darwen area were found to have either missing teeth or signs of serious tooth decay.

Roy Davies, chairman of Blackburn with Darwen’s health scrutiny committee, said: “We brought in an advisor on this a while back and we have put measures in place. We have got people who go into schools and teach children about toothcare.”

Dental implants “perfect solution” for missing teeth


People missing teeth could turn to dental implants.

The use of dental implants could be the perfect solution for someone who has lost a tooth, it has been claimed.

New York periodontist Dr Hiroshi Kimura said the devices can offer a permanent solution to tooth loss and the prosthetic that is attached can be treated and maintained just as a person would one of their own teeth.

He commented: “Through dental implants, people regain the comfort and the confidence to eat, speak, smile and ultimately enjoy life.”

Dr Kimura added dental implants are “changing the way people live”.

Elsewhere, Dr Mitchell A Josephs recently wrote in a blog post for the Palm Beach Post that the use of dental implants for individuals who have lost a tooth can help them maintain stronger teeth in the future.

He claimed by installing a dental implant into the space left by a lost tooth, it can strengthen the jawbone in that area and stop gums from receding.
