Gingivitis Causes and Treatment

Gingivitis is caused mainly by plaque build up on the teeth. Plaque builds up when starchy and sticky foods stick to our teeth and come into contact with the bacteria in our mouth. Brushing our teeth can help remove this, but plaque can build up quickly, usually within twenty-four hours. This is why it is necessary to brush and floss our teeth after we eat, especially after really sticky foods. The more build up there is on the teeth the more likely it is that your gums will become irritated and bleed often. This is the beginning of gingivitis.
Some factors can put certain people more at risk for this gum disease. These factors include: poor oral health habits such as not brushing your teeth or flossing, smoking or using chewing tobacco, diabetes, increases in age, medications, poor nutrition, a dry mouth, certain infections, and more. It is important to talk to your doctor and dentist about things you can do to help prevent gum disease if you are already at risk for getting it.
This gum condition can be treated by thoroughly cleaning and flossing your teeth, using a mouth wash specifically recommended to help prevent it, and by fixing or restoring your teeth professionally if the teeth are severely damaged. However, it is easier to prevent this problem. We can all do this by brushing and flossing after meals, using a mouth wash, changing our eating habits, and visiting a dentist at least twice a year. This way we can have healthy, clean, shiny teeth and gums long into the future and this will help us to keep enjoying all the foods we love for a long time to come.…

How To Treat Halitosis Or Bad Breath

People with bad breath may not just be suffering from bad oral hygiene. There are those who have illnesses and respiratory tract infections who have halitosis due to the accumulation of bacteria in the throat or the sinus tract. There is also focus on people who smoke and drink alcohol as these are common culprits of getting a foul odor in the mouth. Natural bad-smelling foods can also cause bad breath but should be easily solved by brushing the teeth, gums, and tongue.
There are also recommended ways of observing good oral hygiene. These steps can help you eliminate bad breath and prevent tooth decay and gum diseases. These are simple ways that one can do at home aside from visiting the dental clinic. Yet halitosis that is caused other than bad dental hygiene may need the expertise of a dental professional who can diagnose the issue better. Bad breath caused by gastritis and illnesses may also need the intervention of doctors from other medical fields.
These are some helpful tips to give you a fresher breath:
1) Maintain regular good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth at least twice a day. Use dental floss as part of the dental hygienic routine and gargle with mouthwash at least once a day. Use tongue scraper to remove bacteria build-up on the tongue.
2) Clean you dentures thoroughly every night and leave it out of your mouth so that you will get a clean set of dentures every morning. Clean it just the way you brush your teeth and avoid using soaps.
3) Avoid too much spicy foods and minimize caffeine and alcohol intake.
4) Rinse your mouth every after eating meat products or drinking or munching on dairy goods.
5) Avoid smoking.
6) Drink lots of water to hydrate body and prevent dry mouth.
7) Take advantage of herbs which are natural antibiotics such as fresh parsley. Aloe Vera has antimicrobial and antioxidant qualities which is why is has been used as an ingredient in toothpastes.
8) Fruits and vegetables that are crisp are natural mouth and teeth cleaners such as apple, cucumber, carrots, celery. Strawberry is also known to clean teeth aside from a healthful part of your regular diet.
9) For a quick breath freshener, chew sugarless gum since sugar is a food source for bacteria in the mouth.
These are some easy ways to start getting that fresh breath. Always maintain good oral health to prevent other diseases and make sure to be good to your teeth by avoiding vices.

Developmental Milestones Newborn

Physical

It may look as if your newborn baby is scrunched up with his arms and legs not fully extended. Your baby is used to being inside the womb, and this is normal. If he appears bowlegged, don’t worry. It’s part of the stretching-out process and will most likely fase away by the time he’s five or six months old.

Your baby may lift his head briefly when he’s lying on his stomach by the end of this month. Give your baby plenty of tummy time to help him develop his muscles. He may also be able to turn it from side to side. Jerky movements give way to more smooth ones as his nervous system and muscle control mature. Your baby’s primitive reflexes, such as sucking and chewing on his hands, remain dominant.

Baby’s vision is still fuzzy and he can not see very far. Your baby likes to look at your face. Keep it close by and talk to him when you are holding him.

Intellectual

Right now food is the most important thing in your newborn’s life. Sleep comes in at a close second. Most newborn babies will feed every two to three hours around the clock. Sleeping patterns are equally intermittent. Most newborns sleep for a total of 16 to 17 hours in a 24-hour period, but that’s usually broken up into eight to ten naps. By the end of the month your baby may have developed something of a feeding and sleeping pattern, but you may not notice any real pattern for months. It is hard to put a newborn on a strict schedule. Sleeping helps your baby regain energy and it also helps brain development.

Right now your baby doesn’t have much of a personality. Crying is the only way that your baby knows how to express himself. He spends his time moving in and out of several different states of sleepiness, quiet alertness, and active alertness.

Your face is the most interesting thing to your baby right now. He also likes high-contast objects. Show him black and white toys at playtime.

Learning begins immediately, so take all opportunities to teach him about the world around him. Use his quiet and alert times to play and talk with your baby.

Your baby can recognize faces and may try to imitate gestures. Give your baby the chance to imitate you. Stick your tongue out and give him a chance to repeat it. Then, do it again. Even if he does not do it, he is watching you!

Mobiles with high contrast patterns and picture books with strong line drawings will capture your baby’s attention. When your baby starts fussing, its time to stop and move on to something else.

Babies like their own reflection. Place unbreakable mirrors at cribside or on the floor for them to focus on.

Emotional

This month your baby becomes quiet and calm when you speak to him gently and hold him upright. He may even make an ‘ah’ sound when he hears your voice and sees your face. Most babies love to be held, caressed, kissed, stroked, massaged, and carried. Touch is an important means of communicating with your baby.

Your baby can show you their feelings. She may yawn, arch her back, turn her face, fuss or cry if she is overstimulated. She will coo if she is enjoying something. Pay close attention to what your baby is ‘telling’ you.

Understanding Water Terms For Optimum Water Intake After Weight Loss Surgery

Morbidly obese people that undergo bariatric surgery for weight loss are instructed to drink lots of water as part of their post-surgical dietary plan. In fact, “Drink Lots of Water” is the second of Four Rules most bariatric surgeons require of patients following any gastric surgical procedure for weight loss. The Four Rules are essential behaviors to be followed during the early months and weeks following weight loss surgery during which weight loss occurs. For life-long weight maintenance patients will continue to follow the Four Rules once goal weight is achieved. In addition to drinking lots of water patients will follow a high protein diet, avoid snacking and engage in daily exercise.

Water makes up about 60 percent of the adult body’s weight and is essential for the transport of nutrients and waste products throughout the body. When a person drinks an adequate amount of the correct type of water it may have a positive effect on their health. The first sign of inadequate fluid intake is thirst and symptoms of dehydration may soon follow.

Weight loss surgery patients who struggle to drink enough water often ask if other beverages count toward their total fluid intake. The advice from bariatric nutritionists varies, but in most cases patients learn the cleaner their fluid intake the more favorable health outcome they will achieve. Below is a glossary of terms one may encounter when purchasing water. A basic knowledge of these terms is useful in helping achieve good body fluid balance.

Artesian water is drawn from a well that taps a confined aquifer in which the water is under pressure.

Bottled water is drinking water sold in bottles.

Carbonated water contains carbon dioxide gas, either naturally occurring or added, that causes bubbles to form in it; also called bubbling or sparkling water. Seltzer, soda, and tonic waters are legally soft drinks and are not regulated as water.

Distilled water has been vaporized and recondensed, leaving it free of dissolved minerals.

Filtered water is treated by filtration, usually through activated carbon filters that reduce the lead in tap water, or by reverse osmosis units that force pressurized water across a membrane removing lead, arsenic, and some microoganisms from tap water.

Hard water has a high calcium and magnesium content.

Mineral water comes from a spring or well that typically contains 250 to 500 parts per million (ppm) of minerals. Minerals give water a distinctive flavor. Many mineral waters are high in sodium.

Natural water is obtained from a spring or well that is certified to be safe and sanitary. The mineral content may not be changed, but the water may be treated in other ways such as with ozone or by filtration.

Public water is from a municipal or county water system that has been treated and disinfected.

Purified water has been treated by distillation or other physical or chemical processes that remove dissolved solids. Because purified water contains no minerals or contaminants, it is useful for medical and research purposes.

Soft water has a high sodium or potassium content.

Spring water originates from an underground spring or well. It may be bubbly (carbonated), or “flat” or “still,” meaning not carbonated. Brand names such as “Spring Pure” do not necessarily mean that the water comes from a spring.

Well water is drawn from ground water by tapping into an aquifer.…

Breastfeeding During Pregnancy ? Dos And Don?ts

It is not necessary to avoid breastfeeding your child, if you are in pregnancy again. Formerly, it was advised by the physicians that if you were breastfeeding your baby then you were withdrawing the essential nutrients for your baby and it was not good for the baby in the stomach and it would not be able to get adequate nutrition for the healthy growth. However, researches now had proved it to be fault. But there are some people who will not believe with it, even though if you give them a detail explanation. There is no need for argument now and the only thing that is important is that you are the single person who could make the decision of whether to feed your toddler or not. In any case don?t allow anybody else to take up the decision for you, instead.

Even though, if the breastfeeding will not cause any harm to your baby within the womb, there are some health reasons to discontinue the breastfeeding of your child. First of all, you will be loosing your energy by the way of feeding both the child in hand and baby in the stomach and further, your child will start biting your nipple. Moreover, if your milk starts getting dry, then it is an indication that your baby is saying you that it is time for you to have a break for your breastfeeding. If you develop mastitis then it is the good reason for you to stop breastfeeding.

If you decide to stop the breastfeeding, then ensure that it is only because of valued reason, or when your kid has reached for the age to quit feeding and no more need is there for breastfeeding. It is no harm in stopping the breastfeeding, yet, it may not be good to stop at once without any cause excepting the reason of pregnancy. Your toddler will also resist against it strongly, as it happens unexpectedly and suddenly, just he could not bear it. He will surely combine this fact with that of the arrival of the new sister or brother, and it is not fine to allow this to happen. Slowly allow your baby to forget your breast and it is only the best method to solve this problem. For doing so, you must feed your baby only a restricted time a day, this will not make any shock to the child and they will not keep this in their mind throughout, and you too will not feel guilty of denying your breast for your child.

And if your suggestion is to continue your breastfeeding, then it is good for you to have a consultation with your doctor, and they may not accept your decision instantly and sometime they may opt for you due to some good reason. Get the advice from your doctor and decide whether it is based on the good health of yours, or simply on the old belief. If you are not satisfied with the decision made by your doctor then make a consultation with some other doctor who acts for your welfare and who gives support to your wish. Your relatives will also give some suggestions in this case, be patient and get everything, but activate what you feel is acceptable and will be good for you and your baby.

You must keep in mind that if you are able to take care of your body and health, then breastfeeding throughout the pregnancy period is no harm. You too can get the satisfaction of feeding both the babies, at the same time.…
