Brides-to-be ‘are having Botox’


Women getting married are having Botox.  An increasing number of brides-to-be are having Botox and other treatments ahead of their big day in order to ensure they look great.

This is the discovery of Dr Jagdev Heir, an acclaimed surgeon in Sacramento, who told that he has been booking lots of women in lately to correct minor problems on the skin and body before they are highlighted in wedding photos.

"Brides are choosing procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction, Botox, Collagen and other injectables and fillers," he commented.

Money does not seem to be an object either, with some patients spending up to $6,000 (£3,723) on their appearance during one visit.

Last month, Dr Mohan Thomas told the Times of India that he always sees a spike in demand for Botox around Valentine's Day, whether it is from women wanting to look their best for the most romantic night of the year, or from men buying their partners vouchers for treatments.

Charity issues warning over emergency dentistry threat this Halloween


Halloween could pose a threat in terms of emergency dentistry, parents have been reminded. Parents of youngsters have again been advised to exercise caution this Halloween in order to avoid their children needing emergency dentistry.

Dr Nigel Carter, the chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, said that although it is exciting for kids to return home from trick or treating laden with bags of sweets, they need to be aware of the risk of decay.

He recommended allowing them to eat the sugary snacks for a short period of time before putting them away again until the next day.

This is because saliva is more capable of neutralising acids after only a short attack, Dr Cater explained.

Meanwhile, really sticky sweets like toffee should be avoided, as it clings to the enamel and has more chance of causing decay.

"A good dental cleaning routine with fluoride toothpaste will help protect the teeth against conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease," Dr Carter concluded.

Earlier this month, Dr Gilbert Snow from Los Angeles told he sometimes has a ten to 20 per cent increase in emergency dentistry after Halloween because of all the sweets.

Sweets enjoyed in moderation ‘can help to avoid emergency dentistry’


Consuming confectionary moderately can reduce the need for emergency dentistry, a doctor has said.Eating sweets in reasonable quantities is a good way to avoid a trip to the dentist for some emergency dentistry, an expert has said.

Dr Karen Collins of the American Institute for Cancer Research said scientific studies have shown that when it comes to confectionary consumption, limiting variety is an effective way of keeping teeth in good condition.

Writing on MSN Health & Fitness, Dr Collins highlighted one study in particular which revealed that after two weeks of eating chocolate twice a day, 15 to 30 minutes after a meal, chocolate cravers experienced a reduction in their desire for confectionary.

"The researchers suggested that regularly using chocolate to satisfy hunger teaches us to crave it," she commented. "If true, that could apply to other sweets too."

Dr Collins added that people with sweet teeth should try as much as possible not to focus on the treats they are trying to avoid, but should instead divert their attention to non food-related strategies to tackle stress.

A recent survey reported on found that there is an increase in demand for cosmetic dentistry work during Halloween as sweets accumulated by trick or treaters take their toll.

A bottle of water ‘could help prevent emergency dentistry after Halloween’


Try sending kids out with a bottle of water this Halloween to prevent emergency dentistry.Simple precautions like carrying a bottle of water around when trick or treating could help to prevent children from needing emergency dentistry after Halloween.

According to, sweets that are acidic such as Starburst can really damage the teeth and could cause problems with corrosion.

However, rinsing the mouth with water after each sweet and brushing their teeth as soon as they get in with their Halloween booty could reduce the likelihood of little ones needing to seek emergency dentistry a few weeks later.

“With a few precautions there is no need for Halloween to turn into a dental nightmare,” the article concluded.

This follows a similar warning from Dr Gilbert Snow of Los Angeles, who told that parents should up the ante with brushing and flossing for their offspring when they know they will be eating a lot of sweets.

He said he often sees corrosion as well as things like chipped teeth after each October 31st.


‘Take care at Halloween’ to avoid emergency dentistry


Avoid emergency dentistry on Halloween.   People intending to join in the festivities of Halloween later this month should take care of their teeth if they want to avoid emergency dentistry.

This is the advice of Dr Gilbert Snow from Los Angeles, who told that some dentists report an increase in activity of between ten and 20 per cent after October 31st each year because so many people damage their teeth.

He pointed out that sweets, bobbing for apples and over-cooked party food can also result in chipped teeth and lost molars.

Dr Snow said both children and adults should take extra care on Halloween when it comes to brushing and flossing, as well as removing sweets that are too hard from trick or treat bags.

In August 2010, Tufts University professor of nutrition and oral health Carole Palmer recommended limiting the total time that sugar spends in your mouth to prevent cavities.

“Remember, of course, that gulping down sugar may not be wonderful for the rest of your body either,” she added.
