It’s hard to believe that it was only mere decades ago that the internet was created. In what seems like the blink of an eye, we’ve seen internet technology advance at an incredible pace, constantly evolving and improving while simultaneously becoming indelibly entwined with our daily lives. In fact, if the internet were to suddenly disappear today, it’s almost impossible to imagine the widespread impact this would have on the world – it would be nothing short of absolute chaos. It’s interesting, then, that as time goes on, we seem to be integrating the internet and social media even deeper in ..read more

Tooth whitening treatments are incredibly popular, but did you know that you can also potentially improve the whiteness of your smile by adjusting your diet? Most of the time simple stain removal can make a big difference to the aesthetics of your smile, especially as a number of foods and drinks can stain our teeth, leaving them looking discoloured and lacking their natural lustre. So, if you want to preserve your pearly whites, what food and drinks should you be aware of? Unfortunately for the vast majority of us who need a morning cuppa to get going, both coffee and breakfast tea have been ..read more

Bionics: dentistry’s first-class ticket to the future?

Bionics is a vast branch of biomedical engineering, which marries together the world of biology and electronics. The most recognisable example of bionics is probably bionic arms and legs, used by those who have had limbs amputated. Bionic limbs demonstrate how science fiction has become reality in our time. Some bionic arms, for instance, are able to mimic certain natural functions, like grabbing, pinching and even giving a thumbs up. The field of bionics has ventured further than arms and legs – cochlear implants have transformed the lives of many without hearing. Similarly, visual prostheses ..read more

You may have heard this already, but the health of your gums cannot be understated. Gum disease is a serious business, and a new news article has only confirmed what professionals have suspected for a long time – that gum health can directly impact your general health too and put you at higher risk of certain conditions.[i] According to data, 90% of UK individuals have some gum disease.[ii] What this means is that the vast majority of us are putting ourselves at unnecessary risk of developing serious conditions such as higher risk of heart attack and stroke. But how do you know if you have gum ..read more

Any long-time reader of my articles will know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of those topics I could revisit again and again. There are just so many possibilities within this field, and as the technology continues to progress, it’s opening countless doors that could transform the face of not just dentistry, but the world we live in. While I usually focus these articles on AI innovations that are dental specific, I wanted to take the opportunity to look at some of the other, more general steps forward we’re taking – many of which could have applications in dentistry, or in the very le ..read more

It’s impossible to deny the cultural impact that Love Island has had on the nation. At a glance, it may seem that the show is all about impossibly attractive people sun bathing and swigging cocktails, but look a little deeper and the truth of the matter is that the show has had a huge impact on modern beauty standards. Every year, the headlines explode with lists of the cosmetic surgeries that the current cast have had performed before appearing on the show, revealing to the public the steps they’ve taken to achieve their incredible good looks. It’s inspiring stuff, and as we’ve seen from past ..read more

Mouth cancer is a serious matter and remains one of the most prevalent forms of cancer in the UK.  In 2020/2021 the disease claimed the lives of over 2,700 people. However, what makes this figure a real concern is that it is almost double the figure from just a decade ago. What’s also concerning is research that suggests that the majority of people (64%) don’t check their mouths for any signs of the disease, while 27% of individuals don’t know any of the early signs of the disease at all.[i] A quick check for symptoms on a regular basis is an excellent way to catch the disease before it b ..read more

Could primary teeth hold clues to our future?

As dental professionals, we know that primary teeth are more than just temporary placeholders for the permanent dentition. Indeed, if someone has problems with their primary teeth, this can impact the health, positioning, and functionality of their secondary dentition. But what if primary teeth also held clues to other, wider elements of health, such as being able to predict whether people are likely to suffer from mental health conditions?   A fascinating link As I was browsing the Internet over the holidays I came across an interesting piece of research that could, in some ways, signifi ..read more

Anthroengineering: a game-changer for dentistry?

5M ago
It’s no secret that a more holistic approach to dentistry is fast becoming the norm. It’s not unusual to now discuss oral health in relation to wider wellbeing when we speak to our patients and consider how various outside influences can affect dental health. But fundamentally, we still approach dentistry as, well… dentists. However, what if there were a new way to look at dentistry that would change the foundations of what we know? If the discussion around anthroengineering proves to be true, then this emerging field could be exactly that.   What is anthroengineering? Effectively, anthro ..read more
