What is periodontitis?

Tuesday 14th August 2018

Medical News Today (MNT)

Periodontitis, or gum disease, is a common infection that damages the soft tissue and bone supporting the tooth. Without treatment, the alveolar bone around the teeth is slowly and progressively lost. The name "periodontitis" means "means inflammation around the tooth." Microorganisms, such as bacteria, stick to the surface of the tooth and in the pockets surrounding the tooth, and they multiply. As the immune system reacts and toxins are released, inflammation occurs. Untreated periodontitis will eventually result in tooth loss. It may increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, and other health problems. Bacterial plaque, a sticky, colorless membrane that develops over the surface of teeth, is the most common cause of periodontal disease. If plaque it not removed, it can harden to form tartar, or calculus. Most cases of periodontitis are preventable through good dental hygiene.

Chin enhancement or liquid chin augmentation using dermal filler is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to surgical intervention, and is a firm favourite with Hollywood celebrities. An attractive face requires balance, definition, contour and proportion of a number of facial features, which include the nose, lips, chin, jawline and neck. Appropriate aesthetic enhancement of the chin can help add definition and balance to the other facial features.

Brightsmile Dental & Aesthetic Clinic offers a range of facial rejuvenation, anti wrinkle, and anti ageing treatments to help you achieve a more youthful appearance under the expert guidance of Dr Massoudi.

Non-Surgical Treatment for Forehead Augmentation

The forehead is an important facial feature that is often neglected. From an aesthetic perspective, a high and rounded forehead helps to give a good balance to the rest of your overall facial features. Forehead augmentation used to be done by plastic surgeons. However in recent years, the development of medical aesthetics has made it possible to do forehead augmentation non-surgically. Forehead augmentation with dermal fillers is not as invasive or as dramatic as surgery, and also not permanent. It is a better and safer choice for people who are unsure about undergoing surgery. 

In the case presented here, Dr Massoudi has used 2mls of Texoane RHA3 to augment the forehead. The results are subtle, yet noticeable and can last between 8 to 12 months. At BrightSmile Clinic we understand your facial aesthetic concerns and offer free consultation sessions to discuss these with you.

A new study highlights the importance of oral hygiene for people with type 2 diabetes, after finding that those with the condition may have better blood glucose levels if they look after their teeth. It is estimated that around 30.3 million people in the United States are living with diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form, and it accounts for 90–95 percent of all cases. The new study recently published in The Journal of Clinical Periodontology suggests that for people who already have type 2 diabetes, good dental hygiene could be key for managing blood glucose levels.  To read the full story on Medical News Today, please click here

Tooth loss in middle age is tied to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease, independent of traditional risk factors such as high blood pressure, poor diet, and diabetes. This was the conclusion of preliminary research led by Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in New Orleans, LA, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, MA. This study is not the first to investigate the link between dental health and cardiovascular disease (CVD), but it is the first to focus on tooth loss during midlife and exclude that which occurs earlier.
