Home Teeth Whitening Can Cause Permanent Damage

Estetic Dentistry News
Self-treatments using baking soda, ash and hydrogen peroxide, many of which are detailed online by members of the public with no dental experience, can strip tooth enamel and cause lasting damage to the gums, experts cautioned. The techniques are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to expensive professional treatment, especially among teenage girls. Examples of the potentially hazardous advice offered online include brushing the teeth with soap, salt, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide or bleach. But dentists said some of the methods can erode the enamel covering of the teeth, making them appear darker [...]
Fish Fights Gum Disease

Fish Fights Gum Disease

Estetic Dentistry News
A diet full of fish and nuts goes a long way to protect people from gum disease - a new study has shown. The research has suggested that polyunsaturated fatty acids found in foods such as fatty fish and nuts will help keep people’s smiles healthy, as it has been shown to help lower the risks of gum disease and periodontitis. The research examined the diet of 182 adults between 1999 and 2004, and found that those who consumed the highest amounts of fatty acids were 30 percent less likely to develop gum disease and 20 percent less likely to develop periodontitis (severe gum disease). Lead researcher of the [...]
Closer look at dental plaque bacteria

Closer look at dental plaque bacteria

Estetic Dentistry News
A team of University of Rochester scientists is using the technique of Raman spectroscopy to study 2 common dental plaque bacteria, Streptococcus sanguis and mutans. The relative balance of the two may be an indicator of a patient’s oral health and risk for tooth decay - S sanguis is associated with “healthy” plaque, while mutans is associated with tooth decay. Raman spectroscopy offers the potential to analyze samples of the bacterium in a simple, rapid and quantitative manner as compared to microbiology techniques, including the ability to study spatial distributions of bacterial species, living or dead, within [...]
Women more proactive in maintaining oral health

Women more proactive in maintaining oral health

Estetic Dentistry News
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), women are better than men about seeing their physician for routine checkups and are more likely to schedule a doctor visit when feeling sick or injured. Now new research reveals that women are more proactive than men in maintaining their oral health . The study, conducted at Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, included more than 800 participants between the ages of 18 and 19. Participants were asked to complete a written questionnaire concerning lifestyle, dental knowledge, dental attitude, and [...]

Enquête de l’Union européenne sur les effets du blanchiment des dents BRUXELLES, Belgique : Le Conseil des dentistes européens (C.D.E.) mène actuellement une enquête d'un an (jusqu'au 31octobre 2013), sur les éventuels effets secondaires du blanchiment des dents et sur les produits de blanchiment. Le comité a appelé les dentistes de l’Union européenne à donner leurs propres observations et celles de leurs patients. L'enquête porte sur le blanchiment des dents et sur les produits de blanchiment qui ne sont pas librement disponibles, sur le marché pour les consommateurs, c'est-à-dire ceux qui contiennent entre 0,1 et [...]

Des chercheurs espagnols développent une nouvelle génération de brackets invisibles MADRID, Espagne : En collaboration avec Euro Ortodoncia, un fabricant espagnol de matériel orthodontique, les chercheurs de l'Université Charles III de Madrid ont développé une nouvelle génération de brackets dentaires transparents plus résistants. Grâce à l’utilisation de nanotechnologies, ils ont pu améliorer l'endurance des bagues et réduire la friction entre les dents et les attaches, de manière significative. Selon les chercheurs, les brackets transparents ont été bien caractérisés en orthodontie, ces dernières années. [...]
What is a tooth fracture?

What is a tooth fracture?

Estetic Dentistry News
Tooth fractures can range from minor (involving chipping of the outer tooth layers called enamel and dentin) to severe (involving vertical, diagonal, or horizontal fractures of the root). Enamel and dentin are the two outer protective layers of the tooth. The enamel is the outermost white hard surface. The dentin is a yellow layer lying just beneath the enamel. Enamel and dentin both serve to protect the inner living tooth tissue called the pulp. The visible one-third of the tooth is called the crown, while the remaining two-thirds of the tooth buried in the bone is called the root. Dental X-rays are [...]

Estetic Dentistry News
Analisi estetica dento-facciale con l’uso di software 3D: sinergia tra Medicina e Odontoiatria estetica Le anomalie dento-facciali sono alterazioni delle proporzioni facciali e dei rapporti dentali, molto spesso di entità tale da rappresentare un handicap. L’aspetto dentale e facciale porta spesso a discriminazioni nell’ambito dei rapporti sociali, in quanto l’estetica facciale influenza molti aspetti della nostra vita. Nonostante il trattamento ortodontico collochi i denti in un giusto rapporto, molto spesso non è sufficiente a risolvere le disarmonie a livello facciale, cosicché non riesce a risolvere, in ogni [...]
New Process Could Improve Dental Restoration Procedures

New Process Could Improve Dental Restoration Procedures

Estetic Dentistry News
Oral surgeons may one day have an easier, less costly approach to one important aspect of dental restoration, thanks to a newly patented process developed by researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology. The process computerizes the method for creating a dental bar, also called an overdenture. For dental restoration procedures, the device is the bridge connecting dental implants to dentures. The computerized approach was developed by Dr. Ming Leu, the Keith and Pat Bailey Missouri Distinguished Professor of Integrated Product Manufacturing at Missouri S&T, and one of Leu’s former students, Amit [...]

Botox

Estetic Dentistry News
Botulinum toxin (Botox) can lessen bruxism's effects. An extremely dilute form of Botox is injected to weaken (partially paralyze) muscles and has been used extensively in cosmetic procedures to 'relax' the muscles of the face. Botox was originally developed for use in treating strabismus (misalignment of eyes), during trials of which its effects on wrinkles in the eye area were discovered. It was, and continues to be, used to treat diseases of muscle spasticity such as strabismus, blepharospasm (eyelid spasm), and torticollis (wry neck). Bruxism can also be regarded as a disorder of repetitive, unconscious [...]
