Invisalign is named one of the hottest products of the yearInvisalign is named one of the hottest products of the year according to CNN Money. Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign, have had a record year, with profits soaring. In fact, the company’s value has almost tripled. Making it the top performer in the Standard and Poor’s 500 stock index and propelling its worth to a near twenty billion dollars.

Even though Invisalign is the number one choice for adult orthodontics, sales have also been boosted by teens wanting more discreet teeth straightening. The company saw around seventy thousand Invisalign Teen sales in its last quarter alone. Meaning a forty-three percent rise on last years stats.

Invisalign’s CEO, Joe Hogan spoke to CNN Money about the vision and benefits of the device. “You can pull them out to eat the food that you want or play a sport or play a musical instrument. You can live the life that you want to live.” Hogan also attributes their growing success to the amount of investment the company has made. This has allowed them to treat more complex cases that were not possible before.

Big support for Mouth Cancer Action MonthA Luton dentist is among many professionals offering big support for Mouth Cancer Action Month. Dentists across the country are providing dental check-ups and information on mouth cancer awareness to help patients identify the signs. Mouth cancer can present itself in the form of tumours that develop in the lip, gums, or salivary glands, as well as on the tongue, or the floor of the mouth.

Mouth cancer has increased at an alarming rate and dentists all around the country are urging patients to be vigilant. Luckily, growing public awareness of mouth cancer is helping people to spot the signs sooner and know what to look for. However, there is still work to be done. Early detection can often mean better survival rates. This sentiment was echoed by the MyDentist clinical director, Nyree Whitley. “It’s not all bad news, by making sure patients have regular check-ups we can diagnose more mouth cancers at an early stage. Early treatment drastically increases the chances of beating the disease, as this prevents the cancer from developing.”

New 3D printed braces could cut down the time needed for orthodontic work

New 3D printed braces could cut down the time needed for orthodontic workNew 3D printed braces could cut down the time needed for orthodontic work, the Daily Mail has reported. The new product is said to have lights and a battery fitted onto each tooth. Now, this may sound like a strange idea, however, it is thought that light therapy can enhance and speed up bone regeneration. It is this element that could cut the time needed to straighten teeth.

Light therapy can potentially alter the DNA in the cells and, therefore, help increase the energy supply to the tooth. This action could help speed up the orthodontic process in what is deemed a safe way. The device will be programmed by a trained professional to apply the correct amount of light therapy for each tooth. The LED lights will be powered by a non-toxic lithium battery.

Another great thing about the technology is that the light cannot be seen. This is due to the wavelength that the light operates on. Many people could benefit from this new technology and also be saved some of the discomfort that traditional braces produce. Watch this space!

Kate Middleton’s glow could be due to Botox

Kate Middleton's glow could be due to BotoxPlastic surgery experts have claimed that Kate Middleton’s glow could be due to Botox. It is no secret that the princess has flawless skin, however, experts are now saying that this could partly be accredited to Botox injections.

Well known plastic surgeons Dr. Vartan Mardirossian and Dr. Andrew Miller both have an opinion on Kate’s fresh-faced look. Dr. Vartan Mardirossian noticed that there is a slight difference in Kate’s appearance, particularly in the eyebrow area. He noted that recently her right eyebrow lays slightly lower. Dr. Mardirossian was quoted in Closer Weekly. “This is something that may happen when Botox is injected to treat frown lines, and as a side effect, it diffuses to the frontalis muscle that lies underneath that causes the eyebrows to temporarily shift slightly downwards.” Dr. Miller was also careful to say that it is hard to tell whether Kate has undergone Botox treatment or not. If she has then the doctor who performed it has done an excellent job making it look natural.

New test for dental implant suitability

           New test for dental implant suitability.

A new test for dental implant suitability is currently being trialled. Biomechanical testing of dental implants and tissue will be able to help analyse the potential implant site. This will, therefore, help to determine whether the implant could be successful or not, and why. This screening could massively increase the success of dental implant fixtures by assessing and analysing the connection between the body and biomaterials. What is more, the testing will help manufacturers develop more innovative and appropriate designs and products while keeping costs down.

A newly derived test will also mimic the environment that the implant would be fitted into. This includes changes in acidity levels, temperature, bacterial presence, and vibrations and movement that simulate chewing. This type of test will see how well the fixture responds to these added pressures and what the hot spot areas are.

Michael Gasik, one of the review authors and researchers at Aalto University Foundation in Finland also added. “This drastically reduces the time and effort required for clinical tests.” Watch this space!

Dentists undertake pioneering research

Dentists undertake pioneering researchA group of dentists undertake pioneering research that could expand the possibilities of modern medicine. The researchers from The UNLV are developing a method that allows them to extract tooth pulp in such a way that it garners four times the amount of stem cells than previous methods. These stem cells can then be replicated, and in turn, can be used to treat an array of medical issues.

Dr. James Mah, director of the university’s advanced orthodontics program spoke out about this potentially life-saving research. “Stem cells can be extracted from nearly any living tissue. In fact, stem cells can even be found in tissues of the deceased. The biggest challenges with stem cells are gathering enough of them to work with and keeping them viable until they are needed.”

This new research could help facilitate groundbreaking treatment by using stem cells to reproduce healthy cells in the body of the sufferer. Because of this, people with chronic or terminal illnesses could see their symptoms reduced, or vanish altogether. The research continues.

Botox miracle for a Cerebral Palsy sufferer

Latest News

Botox miracle for a Cerebral Palsy suffererA potential Botox miracle for a Cerebral Palsy sufferer has been reported this week in the Hartlepool Mail. Archie Garthwaite and his twin brother Harley were born prematurely back in 2012 and weighed a mere one and half pounds each. The pair needed life-saving surgery. Due to this, Archie was left with Cerebral Palsy.

Most people would associate Botox with anti-ageing and also, more recently, with treatment for migraines and other medical ailments. However, it is now reported that Botox could potentially help Archie to walk again. Archie’s mum, Hayley Kennedy, spoke about this potential new treatment. “We hope to have the Botox done at the University Hospital of Hartlepool, and it will see Botox injected into the muscles in his legs that are overworking. Once he has had that we can see if the SDR operation is needed, but if the Botox works and he can walk aided with a frame, that would be amazing.” It is also hoped that the NHS will fund the potentially life changing treatment.

New formulation of Botox could last longer

Latest News

New formulation of Botox could last longerA new formulation of Botox could last longer according to medicalnewsbulletin.com. Currently, Botox is seen as an effective treatment for wrinkles, however, it has long been known that it needs regular top ups for the effects to continue. Therefore, this new development could mean fewer trips to the clinic and less overall cost for the patient.

Botox works by temporarily paralysing the muscles by blocking the signals from the nerves. Due to this, the skin does not wrinkle and appears smooth and flat. Canadian scientists conducted a large-scale trial which studied the effects of the new formulation in comparison to the current one. The trial focused on the forehead lines between the eyes (glabellar lines). Over two hundred and fifty people took part. The results showed that while both formulations were effective at reducing wrinkles the new formulation lasted, on average, five weeks longer than the current option. This has prompted three more wide-scale trials. The aspirations are to get the new formula approved for use in the near future.

Invisalign’s invasion of Twitter

Latest News

Invisalign's invasion of TwitterWednesday afternoon was like any other for the social media giants, that is until Invisalign’s invasion of Twitter took over. Invisalign featured in the top trending list on that day, and no one knows why.

Bizarrely, the word ‘Invisalign’ was being used in completely unrelated posts, even a Tweet relating to the US president which was hashtagged Invisalign. This gained a lot of attention and re-Tweets. There was also an abundance of Tweets that just simply read ‘Invisalign’. Other tags were Tweets talking about why Invisalign was trending in such a way for apparently no reason at all.

All this media attention also prompted an array of memories, memes, and funny anecdotes from the general public. “My #Invisalign memory: Friend took the trays out at a restaurant & put them in a napkin. All food & the napkin thrown away at end of meal.” One thing is for sure, the makers of Invisalign will have no complaints about all the extra free publicity it has received over the last few days.

Possible breakthrough for toothache sufferers

Wed

Latest News

Possible breakthrough for toothache sufferersThe Irish News online has reported of a possible breakthrough for toothache sufferers. This innovative new technique could change the way that dentists perform root canal procedures on patient’s teeth. The new research, carried out by the OHSU in Oregon, USA, has developed the manufacture of new, fully functioning, blood vessels.

The issue with standard root canal practice is that the tooth is effectively dead due to the removal of the blood supply. This new technique could eliminate this problem, and therefore, keep the tooth alive. The new technique consists of using a process inspired by 3D printing. In effect, the technology can create functioning blood vessels that can then be implanted into the tooth.

One of the lead researchers on the trial, Bertassoni, explained. “This result proves that fabrication of artificial blood vessels can be a highly effective strategy for fully regenerating the function of teeth.”

Due to the new technique patients could see better long-term outcomes, whilst keeping a functional tooth. This could spell a major breakthrough for the dentistry world.
