  Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 21, 2014   Princeview Dental (http://www.PrinceviewDental.com), one of Etobicoke's premier dental clinics, is advising on the dangers of tongue piercings in relation to healthy oral care.       Piercing any part of the body has become normal and accepted behaviour in our society. And though they all come with their own risks, some more than others, tongue piercings can be particularly problematic if not done properly and cared for consistently, according to the experts at Princeview Dental.         "In some cases, it doesn't even matter if you've done everything right," says Dr. Janice Mummery, founder of Princeview Dental. "Swelling, infections, loss of taste: all of these things can occur without warning, even if you've taken all the proper precautions."           Dr. Mummery explains that patients who have experienced these reactions have had to undergo emergency dental services, and many more problems can potentially occur in the future.     "Aside from relatively minor side effects, like excess drooling or mild irritation, people with tongue piercings can have nerve damage and periodontal disease and are more susceptible to oral cancer," she adds. "That in itself is a huge risk, and one that needs to be explained before the decision is made to pierce a tongue."     According to Dr. Mummery, cases of individuals swallowing their tongue ring are not uncommon, nor are instances of chipped teeth caused by jewellery in the mouth. These cases have led to emergency dental services such as root canals and extractions.

  Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2014   Porcelain veneer dentist, Dr. Kevin Sands, is now creating picture-perfect smiles for patients in preparation for the coming holiday season. Veneers, ultra-thin shells that are bonded to the fronts of teeth, look completely natural, and can be used to permanently conceal cosmetic flaws. In certain situations, veneers are also valued for their ability to strengthen teeth. Veneers are an option for most patients and can be used on one or several teeth to rejuvenate appearance. Check there dental veneers before and after pictures to see some of the results that can be achieved with this treatment.       Veneers are beneficial in several ways and are highly durable for lasting results. Here is a closer look at the advantages of veneers:             * Veneers are tinted to match the color of real teeth, preserving a natural appearance once placed. Translucence supports the lifelike look of veneers.         * When veneers are bonded to teeth, they add reinforcement. This can be particularly valuable for teeth that are cracked or broken.     * Veneers can be a faster and more convenient alternative to crowns for cosmetic improvement of damaged teeth.

  OXNARD, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2014         For many busy people, having their missing or damaged teeth isn't worth the multiple office visits and months of recovery from dental surgery that have traditionally been required for a full mouth reconstruction – even at the cost of their youthful appearance.       But the dental implant experts at the Anacapa Dental Art Institute in Oxnard and Woodland Hills, Calif., can provide someone with a full mouth of implant-supported teeth in one visit, even in instances where the patient's bone has deteriorated.       Dr. Saj Jivraj and Dr. Mamaly Reshad are the only doctors in Southern California to combine the revolutionary All-on-4™ dental implants with the new smile in a day protocol that allows them to give patients permanent implant-supported teeth in one visit.

Competition Leads Five Penn Students to Successful Social Entrepreneurship

The University of Pennsylvania issued the following news release:

A year ago, what started as a "crazy idea" among five University of Pennsylvania students in the off-campus apartment of senior Josh Tycko has turned into a budding social entrepreneurial business that is changing lives - theirs and those of thousands of children in India.

At the time, group members Eric Kauderer Abrams, a mathematics major from Englewood, N.J., and Thoba Grenville-Grey a philosophy, politics and economics major from Cape Town, South Africa, were about to graduate. Tycko was approaching his final semester, and Spencer Penn was completing his undergraduate degree at Wharton and was about to start his final year in Engineering's robotics master's program. Along with Morgan Snyder, then a sophomore, the group had often talked about their wish to take what they'd learned at Penn, harness collective expertise across the University and design a scalable social enterprise that could, says Tycko, "do something good, something that mattered." And all were thinking "What next?"

"What," became the Hult Prize. Tycko, a biological and mathematics major in the School of Arts & Sciences from Demarest, N.J., had learned about the prize through another friend.

Sirona Reports Fiscal 2014 Fourth Quarter and Record Full Year Results

Sirona (Nasdaq: SIRO), the dental technology leader, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2014 vs. Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

Revenue was $290.0 million, an increase of $11.4 million or 4.1% (up 4.0% on a constant currency basis). The Company's business segments performed as follows: Treatment Centers increased 28.2% (up 28.0% on a constant currency basis), Instruments increased 12.8% (up 12.6% on a constant currency basis), Imaging Systems decreased 0.2% (down 0.3% on a constant currency basis), and CAD/CAM Systems decreased 5.0% (down 5.1% on a constant currency basis).

Revenue in the United States decreased 8.3%, and revenues outside the United States increased 8.9% (up 8.8% constant currency). As expected, U.S. revenues were impacted by late orders in the third quarter. New user demand for both Imaging and CAD/CAM remains robust, but could not compensate for a large trade-up program in the fourth quarter of last year. Sales growth in international markets was particularly strong in Germany and Asia Pacific.
