Dental Care Clinic In Abu Dhabi | Misconceptions About Dental Health







There are popular myths about almost everything. Some of them are popular that it seems too hard to realize that the fact is just opposite of that. Here are the 7 most popular myths about dental-health in which some of them will surprise you.

White teeth shows healthy teeth


There is no contention about the matter that white teeth are the prettiest. Everyone detests yellowish teeth and those who with the yellow teeth often became the subject of shame and embarrassment. The white teeth which resemble pearl are considered as healthy.  But how many of us know that the shade or colour of the teeth don’t necessarily exhibit how healthy they are. The health status of your teeth is often determined by the presence of cavities, gum health and jaw-bone health. Thus next time you see a pure white teeth on someone, never assume it is healthy.

It’ll hurt if you have infection in mouth



Well, not necessarily. The acute oral infections like abscessed teeth, periodontal abscesses etc do hurt a lot. But the oral infections that results in these acute state doesn’t hurt at all. Most of the dental problems are chronic low-grade infections that wouldn’t hurt until it gets worse.
Bleeding gum is normal!


Actually no; People tend to believe that it happens to everyone, but the fact is that bleeding gum is a sign of gum disease as a result of the accumulated calculus deposited and stuck in your teeth that cause the gum swell and bleed. You should visit the best dentist in Abu Dhabi on a regular basis so as to resist this issue because gum disease if left untreated may even leads to the loosing of your teeth.

Proper brushing is fine. No need to floss


Wrong. Through brushing only 65% dirt is being cleaned. No matter how hard you try, your brush can’t get into every nooks and corner of the mouth even if you use highly sophisticated ultra-thin tooth brush. The food debris deposited in those areas could only be removed through the dental floss. Failing to do it on a regular basis will eventually result in cavities. Learn how to floss properly from a good dentist near you.

 No need to see dentist for the baby teeth as it will be replaced naturally.


It’s true that it’s quite natural; the fall of the baby tooth will be replaced with a new one naturally. Besides, baby-teeth are as important as permanent teeth as the infection and cavities in baby-tooth also ruin their oral-health. It also will hurt severely. The health of this tooth also has a role in guiding the erupting permanent teeth to the right position. If the baby-tooth is removed too early or too late usually results in misalignment. Thus always ensure to visit a dentist for your child so as to protect the future permanent teeth of your kid. Consulting a good dentist for your child in Abu Dhabi reduce the risks.



 Use of toothpaste and mouthwash would be fine.

Certainly toothpastes and mouthwashes have its benefits. But it doesn’t mean that they are enough for maintaining a good oral-health. For that you need to visit a dentist near you in UAE on a regular basis so as to get rid of the doubts and maintain perfect oral health. You need to physically remove the infection from its hiding places.


Dental procedures are painful

This fear keeps many away from the dentists. But know that a dentist is not someone who inflicts pain. Most dental procedures are least painful. Some might experience sensitivity and discomfort. But they are not long-lasting and that pain will be gone just after the procedures. A good dentist in Abu Dhabi knows how to soothe you well during the procedures.
.
These misconceptions are widely popular that it will remain so that until people show willingness to study the facts before they swallow something just like that. Always remember to check for facts before blindly believing something you hear. You need to seek the advice from a best dental clinic in UAE to solve all your queries.

HEALTH TIPS FOR THE BUSY GENERATION


How nice would it have been if work was short and vacations long... 
Sounds like a distant dream right? Today though man has made rapid strides in technology and invented several time-saving tools and appliances, our lives have only got busier. In spite of all the inventions to free up our time, we spend increasing hours toiling at our workplace, only to reach home at late hours after spending hours through smoke-filled crawling traffic. Sometimes we bring work home too. Where has the much sought free time gone?



The worst malady of the modern professional is the dearth of time to relax and give oneself much needed physical and emotional rest. Instead we do a quick research on fast fixes for daily healthy problems, and try our best to remain fit without taking a pause from work. We buy exercise equipment, and work out on it while sipping on nutritious stuff. We pop nutritional supplements to compensate for the lack of proper food at proper times. In our busy schedule, taking care of our body becomes simply another chore to be quickly performed and dismissed.


The fact is simple - we cannot work against the laws of nature. If we try to do it, we just break ourselves. Nature intends us to rest. The entire animal kingdom rests in between moments of effort. Humans are not an exception.


So keeping this in mind, let use see how one can remain fit and healthy in spite of busy schedules, by making small yet significant changes.

1.    Pause every now and then. Whatever work you are doing, take out a few moments to close your eyes and tune in to the moment. Listen for the sounds around you, feel any sensations you are having, and keep all your senses at alert. Empty your mind and remain at peace with the present moment. Try this pausing ritual every now and then, so that your mind doesn’t get caught up in the daily grind and forget to experience life as it happens.
2.    Eat fresh, raw and green vegetables. The essentially of greens cannot be overstated. Juice them, create interesting salads, make soups, do whatever it takes to have them in abundant measure.
3.    Walk for exercise. Not all of us are able to set apart time for daily exercise. So walk whenever you can, on the way to your work, school or market. Use the stairs instead of the lift.
4.    Stretch regularly, while at work or while doing passive stuff like watching TV. A few simple stretches aiming at all major muscle groups keep your body agile and improves blood circulation.
5.    Stay hydrated: This is an important, but often underplayed necessity for healthy body and mind. Even mild dehydration can put our organs out of balance, and cause general weakness and irritation.
6.    Take time to connect: We are social animals, and in order to lead happy, fulfilled lives, we need more than superficial, professional interactions. We need true friendships, even if just one or two. Find time to speak to those love you, and let them know you care.


To conclude, the aim of healthy living is not to create shortcuts to attain good health while remaining busy at all times. It is learning to take pauses in between work, to collect one’s thoughts and relax oneself, so our body and mind gets the much needed rest. It is also about making healthy eating choices, giving the body natural movement and maintaining healthy relationships.

Fever in babies - when to seek a doctor







Our babies are our world, and seeing them sick is the worst nightmare of every parent. However they do fall sick every now and then, and the first few years are a hectic series of trips to the emergency and spending sleepless nights watching over our little one. Here are some tips that help you handle fever episodes in your baby in the manner best for her.

Step 1: Don’t panic

Fevers are actually a very common thing in babies. And most fevers mean nothing. Actually, they might be a good thing since higher temperatures enable the body to fight infections. As long as the baby is playing and acts her normal self, you can wait and watch, UNLESS it is one of the scenarios in Step 2.

Step 2: Check for temperature

According to the American Academy of Paediatrics, you need to contact your doctor immediately in the following scenarios:

1.    The child is under 3 months of age, and has a rectal temperature over 100.4°F
2.    The child is from 3-6 months of age, and has a rectal temperature over 101°F
3.    The child is more than 6 months old, and has a rectal temperature over 103°F


Step 3: Watch out for these symptoms accompanying a fever, which may warrant a visit to the doctor.

  • Refuses to feed and misses several feedings in a row
  • Baby is unusually sleepy or acts really sick
  • Crying nonstop
  • Forceful vomiting. Not able to keep liquids down for eight hours
  • Crying without tears, a dry mouth and fewer wet diapers- all indications of dehydration
  • Pain and discomfort while passing stool, with fewer bowel movements in the recent days (constipation)
  • Stuffed nose that lasts more than 2 weeks, ear pain or a cough more than a week old (symptoms of cold)
  • Loose, watery stools indicative of diarrhea
  • Sudden onset of an unexplained rash
  • Redness in one or both eyes, with or without discharge


Fevers are not always bad signs, so while we need to keep a careful watch, most fevers resolve on their own without medical intervention. So the next time you are woken up in the middle of the night to find your baby hot, flushed and sweaty, take a deep breath. Get her temperature checked, and check for other tell-tale symptoms that indicate the need to call the doctor right away. If all check points indicate no emergency, give your baby the time to fight the illness on her own. Seek supportive home care by giving her plenty of fluids, sponge baths or wipe downs to bring the fever down, or keep a cold washcloth on her forehead. Also keep her in a cool, well-ventilated room.

Being prepared save us as well as the doctor time during a phone call, office visit or emergency 
situation.

Office Fitness: How To Keep Fit During Your Nine To Five



 Are you sitting down right now? Though it seems to be a part of normal, everyday routine, evidence points out the act of sitting does the body no favors, and a hell lot of damage.



We are a sitting class of working individuals, so to speak. While there has been a huge advent of all kinds of chairs to make us comfortable at the workplace- swiveling, recliner, adjustable, chaise lounge etc etc, the bad news is - sitting for too long is killing us silently.

The act of sitting lowers our metabolism, promotes obesity, and unleashes a pandora’s box of common maladies like heart disease, diabetes and arthritis, besides leading to premature death. Sitting is not something the human body is designed to do for long hours. Though having a seat everywhere and every time seems like an indispensable luxury, no amount of exercise can fully reverse the damaging effects of sitting all day long.


But most of us work for long hours in an office set up usually in front of a glaring computer screen, where one has no option but to sit right? Well there are ways to combat the ill-effects of sitting by introducing small changes to your working style.

Stand up

That might sound contradictory or outright foolish, but standing every now and then can negate the damaging effects of sitting to some extent. Stand whenever you can, whether it is to switch on the fan, reorganise your table, or have a chat across the cubicle.
Some offices incorporate sit/stand work culture where you have the option to place your computer at an elevation and work while standing. This has been found to reduce fatigue and boost performance.

Move about

If you don’t have excuses to leave your chair every half an hour, make them. Instead of asking your colleague something over chat or mail, walk over to them. Go for frequent water breaks, and (consequently!) bathroom breaks. Consider taking the stairs instead of the lift. You can even walk to and fro while talking on the phone, saving on time.



 Adjust screen height

The top of the screen should be at eye level, and one looks down at about 10 to view the screen. Viewing below this ideal height can lead to neck and back problems, while viewing above the ideal level can cause eye strain and dryness.



Workplace stretching program

Try simple and quick stretches for all major muscle groups every now and then to keep them in condition. Pay extra attention to the neck and shoulder muscles. These do not take up much time, and can be done without leaving your seat.



We are not prisoners of the chair. Our bodies are meant to be mobile, not to lead sedentary lives. Avoiding sitting for long hours at work can take time to become a lifelong habit, but the rewards are numerous. So don't waste time, go ahead and create opportunities for movement at your workplace.

Lost a tooth - No worries! Dental implants In UAE

                       

Gone are the day when a lost tooth was a permanent loss.




 Chipped a tooth? If only the enamel (outermost layer) is affected, we can use latest technology and products to reshape the missing tooth part with a bit of dentist’s artistry. The tooth will look just as new. However if deeper layers of the tooth have got exposed, you will have to explore other options to save your tooth.

A tooth essentially consists of three main parts - the white visible part called enamel (hardest), an inner hard structure called dentin, and a soft part in the center of the tooth called the pulp. The pulp is what keeps the tooth alive, and is supplied with blood and nerves. The dentin is yellow and supports the outer (white) enamel. There are sufficient nerves in the dentin to give pain signals when injury or infection goes deeper beyond the enamel part. Once damage reaches the pulp, we experience what is described as a typical excruciating toothache.

Once infection or injury has caused the pulp to get exposed or damaged, then the chance of reviving the tooth back to its previous self is minimal. Root canal treatment is the usual procedure performed for a damaged tooth with an intact root, replacing the natural pulp with a sterile medium, prior to reshaping the damaged tooth with ceramic or veneer etc. For totally missing teeth, bridges and dentures have been traditionally employed.

Dental implants are relatively a newcomer in the field of total tooth replacement. Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to eat, smile, talk and laugh without thinking about the missing teeth. Enjoy ultimate freedom from tooth-loss related health problems and appearance-related issues.




 A dental implant essentially has three parts to it:

Implant: A cylindrical or tapered post usually made of titanium, which replaces the natural root of the tooth. Titanium has the unique property of being able to mesh itself with the jaw bone into one entity, literally dissolving itself into the natural bone. Hence titanium is used.
Crown: A replica of the white part of the tooth.
Abutment: A connector that is placed on the implant and joins to the crown.

  1. Thinking of going for a dental implant? Have a look at these benefits of implants over traditional models.
  2. As natural as it gets. It looks, feels, fits and functions as a natural tooth.
  3. .Unlike traditional teeth replacement treatment, Implants last a lifetime, provided  they are well cared for.
  4.   Don’t worry that your tooth implant might fall off. Since the implant essentially fuses with the jawbone as it heals, it can function just as a normal healthy tooth. Unlike dentures and tooth-supported replacement teeth, implants will never fall out and embarrass you in the midst of a conversation over food.
  5. Retain the natural shape of your face, and don’t a missing tooth mar your beauty.
  6. Loss of a tooth can cause the jawbone in the area to deteriorate. An implant prevents this and keeps the jawbone healthy.
  7.  Eat without worries. No cavities can form on an implant!
  8. A missing tooth means neighboring teeth could shift into bridge the gap. However with an implant in place, the teeth positions are unaffected.
  9. High success rate. It is rare for an implant to fail. Provided the gums are sufficiently healthy and there is enough bone density, implants are predictably the best solution to replace those precious white pearls that brighten up your face.

Old age brings many challenges, some real and many imagined. While it certainly does involve a major shift in one’s life, with children leaving home, retirement and bodily changes, there is absolutely no reason to panic or dive into depression. There are so many myths around old age, which we shall debunk one by one.



     Old age means failing health: This could not be farther from the truth. So many people maintain optimal health well into their golden years, thanks to a balanced lifestyle combining good health habits with stress-free living.
     Old age means declining memory: The brain needs exercise too. Solving brain teasers, crossword puzzles, etc as well as engaging in creative activity keeps your brain active and healthy.
     Old age means it is too late to learn new things: This is the worst myth that can send you spiralling into a vegetative state. Old age is the time to start new projects and try new experiences, because you have the backup of wisdom that comes with life experience.



Points to remember to stay healthy in old age:

1.Exercise
Exercise is the number one contributor to longevity. Staying fit need not necessarily involve dumbbells and gym equipment. A nice long walk into the woods, some daily gardening work, playing a favorite outdoor sport or dancing to your favorite track all help keep one’s body agile, improve one’s memory and give a good night’s sleep. The idea is to not sit or lie down for long periods but keep your body moving instead.


2. Healthy diet
Make sure to include plenty of fibre, vegetables and whole grains in your diet. Fibre aids digestion and helps avoid constipation commonly seen in older adults. Also drink plenty of water, as chances of dehydration increase with old age.


3. Stay occupied
Keep yourself physically and mentally occupied. Actively engage in social activities, volunteer for a cause close to your heart. Explore new places, meet new people. Spend more time observing nature. Meditate.


4. Sleep well
Many people develop sleep problems as they age, because of their sedentary lifestyle. If we are energetic during the day, we will fall asleep faster in the night. Try to sleep early, and find time to unwind before going to bed.




Old age is never the end to anything. Keep dreaming and maintain high energy levels as you age, and you will realise that old age can be just as exciting. Adam & Eve SMC General Medicine Department has set new standards in healthcare with a reassuring blend of competence with personalized care.
