Dental materials to make art!

alginate-plaster-baby-foot

In this video, an artist uses common dental materials to make art! Alginate, which is usually used to take impressions of teeth, is here prepared in a bucket and hands are placed in it. After a few minutes the alginate hardens and the hands are delicately removed without tearing or causing distortion on the impression material.

Then the hands impression needs to be casted. The material used is plaster, which hardens after about an hour. When the alginate is removed, an artistic statue is created!

The smile of Tim Borrmann

Tim Borrmann is a young German-born model who figures in several clothing brands including Tommy Hilfiger and Tom Tailor. On his photos he usually has particularly serious look. Unfortunately in several pictures he is smoking, which is bad for his dental health and general health.

But it was possible to find some pictures of Tim Borrmann where he was smiling

or laughing genuinely, showing his beautiful teeth. Hoping that he will keep them healthy for a long time!

Here is the gallery of Marilyn Monroe’s smile:

Did you say a tattoo in the shape of a tooth on your body? No it’s actually a tattoo on your tooth! Or at least on a dental crown that your dentist then places on your tooth.

Patient instructions for lip bumper

Lip bumper

A lip bumper is an dental appliance designed by dentists or orthodontists that has the purpose of correcting or holding into position the lower adult molar teeth and making sure that they do not come forward until the adult premolars (bicuspids) have erupted.

When a young patient is wearing a lip bumper, here are the instructions to follow:

  • a lip bumper should be worn 24 hours per day with the only exception being to brush your teeth;
  • the lip bumper has been placed so that it can be removed for thorough brushing; however, should it become obvious that you are not wearing the bumper 24 hours per day, it can be tied in permanently;
  • When wearing the lip bumper, remember to hold your lower lip up and over it rather than letting it rest under the wire;
  • when removing the lip bumper for brushing, pull it out in a straight forward motion; don’t lift up on the appliance or rock it back and forth because this might eventually loosen the bands;
  • The lip bumper is a comfortable appliance and should not cause sore spots or break the skin; If you are having any problems with the it, call your dental office and they will adjust the lip bumper comfortably.

We are what we eat

mcdonalds-we-are-what-we-eat

I was on Facebook today and found this illustration about a person eating a hamburger and fries, and drinking soda. That person seemed to be pregnant with Ronald McDonald himself!

The illustration might be an exaggeration, but I like the point it’s trying to make, that our body becomes the food that we eat. If we consume healthy foods, we tend to be healthier. But if we eat a lot of fast food, then we look and become unhealthy!

Another dental illustration by Victor Nunes

Last summer, I had displayed some of the artistic creations of Victor Nunes. He is a Brazilian artist who uses foods or instruments to complete his drawings, creating unique masterpieces! He had used toothbrushes as well.

But now I found something new that he designed. A drawing using dental instruments, which look more like orthodontic pliers! Above is what it looks like! And here’s the one with the toothbrushes:)
