    Descriptive info: News - December 2012.. New research shows dental health in crisis.. A new survey indicates that up to a million people may have postponed dental treatment in the last year due to Government cuts to the two State-run dental schemes.. Some 29% of respondents to the Behaviour Attitudes survey said they had postponed dental treatment due to restrictions to the Medical Card and PRSI schemes.. This equates to 944,000 people.. In addition, one-third of respondents – 1.. 1 million people – said they expected to visit the dentist less frequently from now on due to the cutbacks.. The survey, which was carried out on behalf of the Irish Dental Association, also found that over 220,000 people have missed time from work or school in the past year with a dental problem.. Dr Peter Gannon of the IDA s General Practice Group described the findings as alarming.. He said the survey supported the findings of an IDA survey of over 300 dentists, which showed that dentists have seen a massive increase in the number of patients presenting in pain and in the number of extractions.. The severe cuts in the PRSI and Medical Card schemes since April 2010 affect eight out of 10 adults.. It is worrying to see such problems so soon and I am concerned that we are returning to the days of extractions and dentures, he said.. We know already that dental decay is the most common chronic disease affecting Irish children and these findings indicate that dental decay, gum disease and dental infections are rising across all age groups.. It s clear that a silent epidemic of dental and oral disease is affecting a significant proportion of the population and this  ...   over half the people in the study – 53% – had severe periodontal disease.. About 29% had moderate disease, and 18% had mild or no disease.. Periodontal disease was more likely to be severe among people with lower oral health literacy.. About 75% of those with low literacy and 39% of those with high literacy had severe disease.. From.. www.. simplestepsdental.. com.. Nanoparticles reinforce invisible braces.. Braces made from clear plastic polymer used in dental correction orthodontics have produced very good results in recent years, especially in relation to their improved appearance when compared to metal braces, but they do present certain problems of wear and tear in the mouth.. Now researchers for manufacturers Euroortodoncia, who were estimating the friction between teeth and the braces, have begun to use nanotechnology to help resolve the issue.. The solution they came up with is to use very hard alumina nanoparticles and spread them evenly in the polysulfone, the polymer mould used in the industrial production of the braces.. This new process has produced a new material that increases mechanical as well as friction resistance, thereby maintaining the braces transparency.. The new material has also improved friction resistance, thus helping to withstand the wear and tear produced by the teeth or by chewing.. In addition, it is biocompatible, which is essential for something that is going to be used in the mouth, and complies with European requirements for products that are in contact with food.. These new types of materials – nano-reinforced plastics – have applications in diverse areas of industry, according to the researchers.. In particular, polysulfone is of interest in the bio-health field because of its biocompatibility in the development of medical-surgical equipment.. sciencedaily.. News..

    Descriptive info: Brushing your teeth.. Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste helps to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, and can also prevent bad breath.. When you are brushing, it is important to concentrate on the nooks and crannies to make sure that you remove as much plaque and leftover food as possible.. Your dentist or hygienist will be able to show you techniques to brush your teeth well, such as:.. putting a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste on your toothbrush;.. using small circular movements, making sure you brush every tooth;.. paying special attention to the hard-to-reach places at the back of your mouth and behind your teeth; and,.. brushing along the gum line as well as the teeth.. Finding the right toothbrush.. Use a toothbrush with a small head, so that you can move it around your mouth more easily.. The bristles should be either soft or medium, as brushing too hard can damage your teeth.. Some people prefer to use an  ...   how to do it:.. Take a generous amount of floss and wind it around the middle fingers of each hand.. Pull the floss tight, and slide it up and down against the surface of the tooth and under the gum line.. Try not to use a sawing action as this could cut into the gum.. Instead, try a circular movement with your fingers - this will help you to get underneath the gum line without causing any damage.. If you find it difficult to hold the floss, you can buy 'flossers' from most pharmacies.. These hold the floss for you, so you can guide it around your mouth more easily.. When you first start flossing, your gums may bleed.. Don't worry too much about this - as you get better at flossing and as your gums become healthier, this will reduce.. Your dentist or hygienist may also recommend the use of interdental brushes, which are also very helpful in reaching areas between the teeth.. Adult..

First teeth normally appear when a baby is about six months old, and your child should have all 20 'baby' teeth by the time they are about 2 1/2 years old.. Permanent teeth will start to appear when the child is about six.. Although they are not permanent, baby teeth are very important:.. they help children to bite and chew;.. they are a guide for the adult teeth;.. they are important in speech development; and,.. they are important for a child's self-confidence and smile.. Research has shown that the earlier you start to care for your children's teeth, the less likely they are to suffer from tooth decay.. You should start brushing your child's teeth as soon as the first tooth appears.. Fluoride toothpaste is not recommended for children under two (unless advised by your dentist).. Choose a toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles, and brush twice a day, in the morning and before bed.. Allow children over two to brush their own teeth, but ALWAYS supervise children under  ...   milk and water are the most 'tooth-friendly' drinks for your children;.. breastfeeding is beneficial for your child's development..
