Dental Wig brings a smile to your face

in Health by

There are many people who are unhappy with their appearance in the world today. Some peoples’ teeth may have been unattractive for their entire lives, whereas others’ teeth may have aged and slowly become unattractive. For these reasons, many people decide to look into cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic dentistry could be considered a dental facelift, changing someone’s appearance so that they look better and feel better about themselves.

There are many techniques in cosmetic dentistry, from braces to porcelain veneers. More often than not, dentists use a combination of these techniques in order to achieve the best results.

Many dentists choose to provide a variety of procedures, while others focus on specific areas of treatment. Many times, cosmetic and restorative dentistry requires more than one dentist to achieve the best results. So, shortlisting suitable dentists who could provide you all the specific and related cosmetic dentistry support you need is a crucial part of the entire process.

You can anticipate dental problems when your teeth begin to accumulate plaque. It causes tooth decay and gum disease. It is the first sign of gum problems. You can prevent gum disease by following seven simple steps.

Never treat dental problems lightly. They not only damage your gum and teeth but can lead to other serious health problems such as heart disease. Proper oral hygiene, good nutritional food, and regular dental visits can prevent dental problems from progressing into periodontitis.

Smile is the beauty of Face. Healthy teeth compliment a healthy smile. For keeping teeth healthy proper care is very necessary. Nowadays, because of unhealthy food and due to not taking proper care, many dental problems are arising like bruxism, canker sore, teeth cavities, gum diseases, Periodontitis, Dysphasia, Gingivitis, Halitosis, dry mouth and many more.

Tips for Dental Care:

Brush your teeth correctly at least twice a day, Use your teeth for what they are intended for, Avoid smoking, drugs, tobacco etc., Avoid clenching or grinding teeth, Floss your teeth to remove food particles and bits that are trapped under the gums, Consume foods that will not damage your teeth, Know what you are taking and update your knowledge about the side effects of these medications, Perform Exercises for your teeth like gum massage.

Visit My Dental Wig for affordable and premium dental implants and clean the mouth after having the food to maintain good oral hygiene.

Dental Implants Information

Dental implants are ideal to replace broken or damaged teeth.  Be advised that these dental implants can be a costly procedure as well as lengthy procedure.

Typically, dental implants have a starting cost of around $1000 dollars for each tooth.  If you have dentures, bridges, broken or damaged teeth dental implants could be a great investment for your smile.  This procedure has very low failure rates.  If a failure was to occur, chances are that there was an undetected bacterial infection during the install of the implant.

Timeframes needed to complete the dental implant procedure have a few contributing factors.  One such factor is a state of the jawbone.  If the doctor needs more jaw bones to work with, bone grafting may be required.  This process must be completed and healed before the dental implant can be installed.

Osseointegration is a process where a titanium post is screwed into the jawbone.  This must be left for 3-6 months so that the bone can fuse around it. A plate-style implant may be used between the gum and the jawbone if the bone integrity is not ideal.

Once the healing has completed, the doctor will make a cast of the mouth.  Then a ceramic tooth will be made to match the existing shape and color of the teeth.

A Guide to Dental Health

People begin to learn about dental health from a very young age when teeth first begin to show up. But in spite of such early awareness, many people fail to maintain good dental health through their adult life. Good dental health comprises brushing and flossing your teeth every day, and regular visits to a dentist or dental hygienist as well. Besides, people supplement their dental care with the use of products like mouthwash or advanced mouth care systems. You should keep it in mind that the lack of adequate dental care practices will result in cavities and gum disease.

It is generally advised that you use a toothbrush with softer bristles so as to protect your gums. Some people, however, prefer power brush systems that help break up plaque and bacteria in your mouth. But it takes more than brushing to keep your teeth in good health. Some other steps need to be taken to ensure that people do not lose their teeth as they become old.

To begin with, you should understand your own oral health needs, as your oral health depends on your diet, the type and amount of saliva in your mouth, your overall health, and your oral hygiene routine. Try to follow a daily routine in consultation with your dentist.

As fluoride strengthens developing teeth in kids and prevents decay in adults, kinds of toothpaste and mouthwashes containing fluoride should be used. You should brush at least twice a day, if possible three times or after every meal. You should also floss at least twice a day. Brushing and flossing will remove plaque, a complex mass of bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth.

Limit the consumption of snacks and follow a balanced diet plan. Tobacco in any form will enhance the risk of oral cancer and cause stains on your teeth. Visit your dentist regularly and get your mouth examined.

Cancer is a disease that affects the cells of the body. Cells are extremely small units that build together and form all living things, which include human beings. In any given person’s body, you will find billions of cells.

Cancer occurs when unusual and abnormal cells grow and spread very quickly. Normal cells in the body divide, grow to a certain size and then stop. Over the course of time, cells will even die. Cancer cells do not follow this normal pattern of division and growth, however. They divide very quickly and just continue to grow. Normally, cancer cells do not die and they clump together in groups to form what are called tumors.

The cancer cells in a tumor can damage and destroy surrounding healthy body tissues. When these healthy tissues are damaged and destroyed, the person with the tumor can become very sick.

Cancer is capable of spreading to other parts of the body, as well. It is not unusual for part of a tumor to break off and travel to a distant area. Once that piece of the tumor comes to a stop in another area of the body, it will continue to grow and can create a new tumor. When cancer spreads like this, it is called metastasis.

When in the body, cancer can cause a person to feel very sick. Since early detection is a big factor in treatment, it is good to be aware of the signs of this disease. Some signs of cancer include:

  • A lump in the breast or testicles
  • A change in the skin, a wart or a mole
  • A persistent sore throat that doesn’t heal
  • A significant change in bladder and bowel movements
  • Coughing blood or a persistent cough that won’t stop
  • Indigestion and trouble swallowing
  • Unusual bleeding or vaginal discharge
  • Chronic fatigue

Many of these symptoms can be from other illnesses which are not as serious as cancer. However, if you are ever faced with any of the symptoms above, it might be a good idea to see your family physician right away. Although the exact cause of cancer is still somewhat of a mystery, it is known that cancer is not contagious. You cannot catch cancer like you can the common cold. Unhealthy habits like smoking and excess drinking can increase your chances of getting cancer, but doctors aren’t sure why some people get this serious disease and others do not.

There are always good people in society who run in the background but the society is governed by their good deeds, A classic example is of Arfaan. He donates 16 inches of hair to Locks of Love, who are a non-profit organization that accepts human hair to make wigs for children with a medical condition that cause them to lose their hair. When We asked Arfaan “what made you donate your hair?” he replied, ”Well last time I cut off 12 inches of hair and just seen it goes into the trash bin and I felt a bit guilty, thought to myself what a waste, there has to be something we can do with this hair. Then I searched around for a few days for the organizations accepting hair donations and locks of love were a right fit. So after 2 years, I had enough hair length to donate”.

Guys like Arfaan who are putting their efforts for cancer patients by donating hair. We need to make it a culture to follow so more and more people can get into this.

You can follow him on Twitter and Instagram to know more about him and you can take your part to donate for their noble cause.

in Health by

Saudi German hospital Group, Sharjah and Ajman offers to provide free surgeries for the people who cannot afford the health care services in the UAE. ‘The group believes that access to quality healthcare is the birth right of every citizen in the world and Ramadan is the time of caring and sharing. This is the right time to provide this healthcare service for the people who are not able to afford the service’, said Dr. Reem Osman – Group CEO – Saudi German Hospitals Group UAE

The free surgeries will be done at Saudi German Hospital – Sharjah and Saudi German Hospital – Ajman. Both hospitals will provide free medical assistance, surgery and post- surgical care to the people who are in need.

Dr. Reem Osman also said, ‘This is one of the many humanitarian initiatives undertaken by Saudi German Hospitals Group – UAE.

Medical examinations reveal child’s diarrhoea to be actually chronic constipation

in Health by

One of the 10 conditions for parents to seek medical attention, constipation among children is rising and is particularly affecting their self esteem

Reem visited Emirates Hospital – Jumeirah (EHJ) – an Emirates Healthcare company and an internationally recognised 100-bed beacon of progress in the region’s healthcare system after her 4-year-old son, Rayan complained of what she believed was diarrhoea. She sought medical attention after she realised something was wrong especially because Rayan was periodically releasing small quantities of loose stools.

On evaluation by Dr Sripradha Sudarsanam, a Specialist Paediatrician at EHJ, Rayan was diagnosed with chronic constipation.

“Many children who suffer from chronic constipation experience leaking of soft stools in their underwear which poses a big problem in their social and emotional dimensions. Because of the unconscious leaks, the children are almost always smelly and are being neglected and isolated in classroom by their peers. The leaky stools are the newly formed stool which trickles down through the hard stools stuck to the intestine. Sometimes vigorous pushing due to urge to defecate can cause a tear in the anal region and cause bleeding as well,” explained Dr Sudarsanam.

According to studies, 30 percent of children are affected by constipation at some point in their lives. When not adequately treated, chronic constipation can lead to haemorrhoids, anal fissures, bowel bleeding and faecal incontinence.

“Children who are improperly toilet-trained and lack fibre intake in their diet often complain of chronic constipation. Parents should ensure that children avoid processed food and eat food rich in fibre, such as fruits and whole grains. They must also monitor their child’s fluid intake and ensure that they drink between 1 to 1.5 litres of water each day,” said Dr Sudarsanam.

Constipation is a vicious cycle, and seeking medical attention at the right time can help avoid further complications in children while also helping their emotional and mental health from deteriorating.

Takeda to Highlight New Research into the Long-term Complications of Chronic Hypoparathyroidism at the European Congress of Endocrinology 2019 Annual Meeting

in Health by

Seven presentations will be shared, including new data on the risks of long-term cardiovascular, renal and infection complications, underlining Takeda’s commitment to further understanding of this rare disease

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) (“Takeda”) today announced that it will feature 7 presentations, including one oral presentation, at the upcoming European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE) Annual Meeting from May 18-21, 2019 in Lyon, France. The data presentations include findings from new research into the long-term risks of cardiovascular, renal and infection complications that patients with chronic hypoparathyroidism may experience as well as the latest findings from on-going real world and clinical studies, including the Global Burden of Illness Survey and the 6-year RACE study.

Takeda will also sponsor two satellite symposia. The first will focus on the burden of illness in chronic hypoparathyroidism patients with impaired biochemical control and comorbidities associated with the disease (Forum 1 on May 19, 13.45–14.45). The second symposium will present new perspectives in managing not adequately controlled hypoparathyroidism patients (Forum 3 on May 20, 13.45–14.35). Takeda will also have an exhibition booth throughout the congress (Booth #B02).

“The new research we are presenting at ECE 2019 continues to further our understanding of chronic hypoparathyroidism, especially about how long-term complications and symptoms may impact patients living with this rare disease,” explained John Germak M.D., Global Medical Team Lead at Takeda. “The clinical and real-world studies reflect our commitment to advancing our knowledge of chronic hypoparathyroidism and to improving patient care,” he added.

Hypoparathyroidism is a rare endocrine disease that occurs when inadequate levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) are secreted by the parathyroid glands, resulting in a mineral imbalance in the body expressed by a low concentration of calcium (hypocalcemia) and a high concentration of phosphate (hyperphosphatemia) in the blood.1 Studies have shown that a range of approximately 24–37 in 100,000 patients are affected by hypoparathyroidism.2 In patients who are not adequately controlled, this disease can have a significant impact on patient well-being through a range of physical, cognitive and emotional symptoms, and comorbidities.3,4

Takeda’s presence at this year’s ECE meeting includes the following presentations, which are intended for scientific discussion only:

  • Risk of sepsis, respiratory infections, and kidney or other genitourinary (GU) infections in patients with chronic hypoparathyroidism (HypoPT)4 OC1.4, May 19, 2019, Salle Gratte-Ciel 1+2+3, 12.00 – 13.00
  • Risk of myocardial infarction, stroke and other cardiovascular conditions in patients with chronic hypoparathyroidism: A retrospective cohort5 GP148, May 20, 2019, Exhibition area, 13.00 – 14.00

  • Risk of nephrolithiasis and nephrocalcinosis in patients with chronic hypoparathyroidism (HypoPT)7 GP147, May 20, 2019, Exhibition area, 13.00 – 14.00
  • Impact of chronic hypoparathyroidism on Health-Related Quality of Life: Findings from a 13-country patient survey8 GP25, May 19, 2019, Exhibition area, 13.00 – 14.00
  • Risk of Type 2 diabetes (T2D) in patients with chronic hypoparathyroidism. (HypoPT)9 P1038, May 21, 2019, Exhibition area, 12.30 – 14.30
  • Recombinant human parathyroid hormone 1-84 for the treatment of adults with chronic hypoparathyroidism: Six-year safety and efficacy results of the RACE study10 GP15, May 19, 2019, Exhibition area, 13.00 – 14.00

All abstracts will be available on the ECE website following the meeting.

About Hypoparathyroidism

Chronic hypoparathyroidism is diagnosed in patients with a low concentration of calcium in the blood and inappropriately low PTH levels; for postsurgical hypoparathyroidism, the features of hypoparathyroidism must persist for at least 6 months after surgery to be considered chronic.11,12

Hospital offering free personalised consultation to UAE residents before Ramadan

in Health by

RAK Hospital provides complimentary visit to the nutritionist in order to guide people on ways to make a smooth and healthy transition to fasting

The month-and-a-half long campaign will take into account pre-, during and post-Ramadan holistic healing

As part of their Ramadan initiative, RAK Hospital has launched a Ramadan campaign, “Eat Right – Eat Light” to guide people on ways to make a smooth and healthy transition to fasting. The hospital is providing free consultation with the nutritionist for UAE residents, starting a week before Ramadan and ending a week after Eid with focus on pre-, during and post-Ramadan holistic healing. While open to everyone, the campaign is particularly beneficial for patients suffering from chronic ailments, such as diabetes and cardiac issues, who will be guided on best ways to fast through the month safely.

The Eat Right – Eat Light campaign aims to guide people on their lifestyle choices during the month of Ramadan and after it ends, with the focus on detoxifying and healing their bodies, keeping in view individual health issues and preferences. For those using the opportunity to lose weight, the consultation will provide advice for maximum weight loss. Besides food, people will also be guided on how to best adjust their sleep timings in order to get maximum sleep. The campaign further focuses on returning to regular routine of diet and exercise post Ramadan, since a sudden change in lifestyle either way can be damaging to health.

In addition, RAK Hospital will be offering tips on healthy lifestyle and habits on their various social platforms throughout the month.

Giving details of the campaign, Ms Ruba ElHourani, Head Dietitian at RAK Hospital, said: “From eating three proper meals a day to going without food and water for long hours can be a challenge if we’re not prepared mentally and physically. Through this consultation, we will teach you how to gear your bodies for proper fasting to get maximum benefit out of it”.

“For example, if we’re used to eating unhealthy food throughout the year, toxins can accumulate in our bodies. For healthy fasting and to help reduce the feeling of exhaustion, it is important to start cleaning the body from these toxins by consuming foods such as yogurt and variety of fruits and vegetables. This is an exercise we should start before the month of Ramadan begins to energise our bodies to stay hungry for longer periods without causing lethargy”.

Dr Raza Siddiqui, CEO of Arabian Healthcare Group and Executive Director at RAK Hospital, commented: “Fasting for an entire month is an ideal opportunity for us to create our health goals. The month of Ramadan is all about holistic healing, and cleansing of our body, mind and soul. This also goes in line with the modern concept of intermittent fasting which is finding a lot of acceptability now. Through this campaign we want to help people detoxify themselves and pave the path to a healthier living”.

“But as we step into the month, we have to be prepared to change our lifestyle. Our food choices, for example, will decide whether we will be eating clean, or unhealthy, high-caloric meals that do more disservice than we can imagine. Similarly, for smokers, this a great time to break the habit as they learn to give up smoking several hours in a row, and if they follow through, they can actually quit by the end of the month. These, and many such benefits, is what the campaign is all about,” added Dr Raza Siddiqui.

An innovative leader among healthcare institutions in northern emirates, RAK Hospital has conducted several CSR initiatives with the aim to educate UAE residents on healthy living and management of chronic ailments.
