Kerry Katona undergoes wisdom tooth removal

Thu

Reality star Kerry Katona has revealed she is in agony following dental surgery to remove several of her teeth; the former Atomic Kitten singer shared her experience with her Twitter followers and revealed that she was suffering a lot of pain after the wisdom teeth were removed.

The mother-of-five tweeted that she was ‘in soooo much pain’ after having her back teeth removed and added that her youngest child, DJ, was having trouble sleeping as well; she posted a picture of the pair, with little Dylan Jorge drinking milk from a bottle. She added some angry face emoji’s to demonstrate how she was feeling after the surgery.

Earlier in the day Kerry posted some cheerful pictures of herself having her hair done at the salon, including one of her stylist smiling broadly to show off her dental braces. The picture was captioned ‘Having my hair put back in…’ apparently showing Kerry getting extensions attached.

However, later on Kerry’s mood seemed to have taken a turn for the worse after her teeth were taken out and she described a sleepless night with her daughter, thanks to pain from her dental surgery.

 

Model Jodi Anasta posts pictures after wisdom tooth removal

Tue

She is used to looking her best in front of the camera and not even dental surgery could make model Jodi Anasta look anything less than perfect; the model and footballers wife posted a picture of herself looking flawless right after a wisdom tooth removal. The 30-year-old shared the picture with her 138,000 followers online and it showed her holding an icepack onto her face after having the molars extracted.

Jodi added the caption ‘Yay… They’re all OUT!! Bed time now.’ She even joked that her former footballer husband Braith was looking after her following the dental surgery; wisdom tooth extractions can sometimes be more difficult to remove because of their large size and their position at the back of the mouth, closer to the blood vessels near to the jaw muscles.

The mother-of-one added alongside the picture ‘Thank you Dr Anasta for always looking after me @braith_anasta #wisdomteeth.’, and she also seemed to be missing food during her recovery, as she  posted ‘#cravinglasagne’. Only a day earlier, the model was travelling around Tasmania with Australian TV presenter Kylie Gillies.

Justin Bieber gets wisdom teeth taken out

Tue

His millions of fans worldwide are waiting on his every tweet and popstar Justin Bieber isn’t about to let them down; the Canadian singer has even been keeping his followers updated about his dental treatment, posting pictures before and tweeting afterwards about his wisdom tooth removal. The treatment can be slightly more difficult than a routine tooth extraction because of the size and position of wisdom teeth, so patients often have to be sedated or may be put under general anaesthetic in difficult cases.

Bieber was filmed at the dentists last week just before being put under anaesthetic for the procedure and he posted the video online for his fans to see. In the short film, the popstar is heard telling the cameraman, a dentist office documenter, that he is ‘about to go under’ to have his teeth extracted, adding ‘They’re giving me drugs. Probably gonna feel it.’ A short while later, the singer was filmed looking cheerful, if slightly dazed, just before the procedure is due to begin. He captioned the video ‘GOT MY WISDOM teeth out and haven’t slept!!’

After the anaesthetic apparently wore off, the popstar was feeling slightly less cheerful, stating on Twitter ‘Got the wisdom teeth pulled. No fun. Glad it’s over. Going back to sleep. Goodnight.’

New gel invention could encourage bone growth

Wed

A so-called gel ‘filling’ made from calcium could help bone to grow back after a tooth has been removed, stopping the jaw bone from shrinking or weakening as a result of tooth removal. Bone loss can cause problems with biting and chewing, and may make it harder to place dental implants in the future.

The gel is designed to be injected into the empty socket and is made from tiny granules of calcium phosphate – which encourages the natural tissue to grow around it; the gel will gradually dissipate over several months and the socket will be made completely of natural bone. The product is currently being tested in Nantes University Hospital in France; patients will either have the gel or no extra treatment after a molar extraction.

Damien Walmsley, professor of restorative dentistry at the University of Birmingham and scientific advisor to the British Dental Association, called the development ‘an interesting idea’ and explained that ‘bone grows slowly, while soft tissue grows rapidly. This approach allows the cavity to be filled with bone rather than soft tissue. It seems like a good approach to preserving the bone.’

Further trials are going on in Switzerland, at the University of Bern, where forty patients will be treated with and without the gel to see how well it works.

Videos of wisdom tooth removal go viral

Mon

Videos of patients reacting to pain relief after wisdom tooth surgery are becoming increasingly common online and the latest example has gone viral after an American teenager who never used bad language before in his life started swearing as he recovered from the use of laughing gas. A YouTube user uploaded the video of her son Cameron reacting after his wisdom teeth were removed.

Cameron appeared to be recovering from the use of laughing gas and his mother filmed him shouting out a range of expletives after the procedure was completed; the teenager could be seen with cotton pads in his mouth to stem the bleeding following the tooth extraction. After telling his mother that he was hungry he continued swearing until she told him to ‘stop cussing.’

Although he doesn’t seem to know what is going on, Cameron managed a smile for the cameras as his grandmother helped him out of the car and into his house. Cameron’s mother admitted that she found the video ‘hilarious’ and added that, despite his age, she had never heard her son swear before but when he underwent the dental surgery ‘boy, did he bring it all out!’

Several other similar videos have recently been uploaded and the different reactions to sedation and laughing gas have even made it onto news reports in America as they go viral.

Shia LaBeouf talks tooth removal in Jimmy Kimmel interview

Wed

Actor Shia LaBeouf has been talking about his latest role in the WW2 film Fury on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the 28-year-old seems to have taken method acting to a new level, after having a healthy tooth removed for the part. The Transformers star now has a prosthetic tooth filling the space on the bottom jaw.

The interview, which aired on Monday, revealed that LaBeouf had the healthy tooth extracted deliberately in order to delve deeper into the role of a soldier fighting in France during the Second World War. Shia told Jimmy Kimmel that he initially had some trouble finding a dentist that would perform the procedure and called it a ‘mission’ because most dentists are not going to extract a healthy tooth at the behest of a patient.

Shia was told several times that the extraction ‘doesn’t make any medical sense at all’ because there was nothing physically wrong with the tooth, but the actor eventually managed to find a dental professional willing to carry out the treatment. He explained ‘I found a guy in Reseda next to a Radio Shack and he didn’t ask too many questions.’

Shia’s new dental condition can be viewed on the big screen when Fury is released in the UK towards the end of October.

Dental patient receives pay-out after tooth removal

Mon

A man from Oldham has received a £42,500 pay-out after botched dental work left him without eleven teeth and a mouth that resembled ‘a building site.’ Ian Lisle, 51, visited dentist Michael Garside regularly but was not informed about decay that was present in his teeth; he found out about the problem after visiting another dental surgeon to have an implant placed. The initial check-up revealed that eleven teeth would have to be removed and replaced; Mr Lisle sued Dr Garside for the costly mistake and won an out-of-court settlement.

Mr Lisle told the papers ‘I’ll never know how Dr Garside could have let things get as bad as they did. I was led to believe my oral health was much better than it was, when in fact, the opposite was true.’ Mr Lisle also spoke about how the bungled treatment affect his confidence and described his x-rays as ‘a right mess’ with ‘scaffolding-like metal in my gums from where Mr Garside had made mistakes.’ He added ‘It was horrifying and I couldn’t believe it.’

In reference to his upcoming implant treatment, he added ‘I’ve still got a long journey ahead of me but I’m trying to move on now. Hopefully when I have the work done my smile will be back to normal.’

The Care Quality Commission produced a report last year on the surgery, saying that there was ‘enough qualified, skilled and experienced staff to meet people’s needs.’

Dentists express opinions on wisdom tooth removal

Wed

Do wisdom teeth need to be removed?  A new survey has revealed the thoughts of dentists in the US when it comes to wisdom teeth.

The poll, published by the Dental Practice Marketing and Management Blog, showed that 20 per cent of oral healthcare practitioners think the third molars should always be removed.

However, 53 per cent said they felt that while wisdom teeth should usually be removed, this does not always need to be the case.

For instance, one dentist reported that he would be happy to leave the wisdom teeth of an 80-year-old woman alone, provided that she was showing no sign of infection.

One professional from New York said it is important to use common sense to decide whether or not an extraction is necessary.

This comes after Dr Robert Williams from the University of Maryland Dental School told the Baltimore Sun that people who have wisdom teeth removed are likely to see fewer problems with mouth infections than those who choose to leave them alone.

Decay leads to tooth loss for 5yr-old

Thu

A five-year-old girl has had to have eight teeth removed.

A five-year-old girl has had to have eight teeth removed because her level of decay was so bad, it has been revealed.

Kaitlyn underwent the procedure at Alder Hay hospital’s dental department but is now believed to be recovering well.

Her mother stated that the state of Kaitlyn’s teeth were down to her love of sugary foods and, in particular, tomato ketchup.

She noted that this is a trend that is becoming more commonplace and hoped her daughter’s story would help to educate parents across the UK about the dangers of these types of foods.

Elsewhere, the American Academy of Periodontology recently revealed figures showing that three out of four Americans could be suffering from gum disease at present.

In response, Samuel Low, associate dean and professor of periodontology at the University of Florida College of Dentistry, told the Thousand Oaks Acorn that anyone who has bleeding or reddened gums should make an appointment to visit their dentist.
