  Johns Creek, GA (PRWEB) November 20, 2014   Dental patients with receding gums in Johns Creek, GA who are looking for an experienced and reputable general dentist are invited to schedule an appointment with Dr. Randolph S. Moore's office. Dr. Moore is one of the few dental professionals qualified to utilize the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) as a treatment method for gum recession. This treatment option is significantly less invasive than other types of treatments and reduces the chances of bleeding, infection, and other complications that sometimes accompany traditional gum grafting procedures for gum recession.           Gum recession is a very common problem that can lead to increased tooth sensitivity and decreased confidence. Individuals who have receding gums are often plagued with feelings of embarrassment when they smile and are more likely to avoid showing their teeth whenever possible. Gum recession can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor dental hygiene, genetic predisposition, aggressive tooth brushing, gum disease, changes in hormones, tooth misalignment, and teeth grinding. Regardless of the cause, gum recession should be treated by a general dentist near Johns Creek, GA before more concerning complications develop, including the loss of one or more teeth.     Johns Creek, GA residents who receive PST™ for their gum recession symptoms can expect to have their condition treated in a single visit instead of being spread across several different appointments, as is often the case with gum grafting treatments.

  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.

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.
