Grow Up And Get Healthy
I have a confession to make. Ready? I can be a bit of a baby when it comes to being a grown up about my health. You know, like making (and going) to annual doctor appointments, stretching before running, drinking a ton of water (does the water in coffee count?), etc. Don't get me wrong. I'm not bad. I eat healthy and exercise, but honestly, as long as I feel great on the inside, I'm the right number on the scale, and there's no blemish on my face, my brat, whom I've nicknamed "Baby Lauren," has no problem being a few months late for my yearly physical or any other doctor appointment, for that matter.

5 Things You Should Know About Dental Implants
This brings to mind a line from one of my all time favorite songs: "They'll hit you with that fake smile and I'm not talking dentures..." and on and on. Thankfully, we are not talking about dentures; we are talking about something better. Decades ago, the only remedy to losing a tooth - or teeth - were removable dentures or a fixed bridge. And we all know the trouble we have to go through to maintain them, not to mention the attendant discomfort. Dental implants was a breath of fresh air as well as a source of relief to subscribers of the dental community. So what is a dental implant? As told by the Academy of General ...

A modified technique for preventing excess cement around implant supported restoration margins
This article presents a modification of this technique, wherein hot melt thermoplastic material is used for the copy abutment instead of polyvinyl siloxane. This simplifies the technique, making it faster and more reliable. It involves injecting hot melt thermoplastic material into the wetted intaglio surface of the crown, fitting a dowel pin to serve as a removal handle, filling the crown with cement, fitting it onto the copy abutment, and wiping the excess at the margins before intraoral transfer and definitive cementation.

Part of Your Smile, Your Health™ Series, a division of Sleep Fitness, LLC Co-authored by Keelyn Ross What are the benefits of nasal breathing? There is a right way to breathe and a wrong way to breathe. The right way is through the nose, the wrong way is through the mouth. Nasal breathing benefits the body on multiple levels because the nose is super equipped to process incoming air. The nose has a built-in humidifier and filtration system, so when air enters through the nasal passages, it's warmed and moistened. It is also equipped to sense and destroy harmful bacteria before it enters the body. This means the ...

The Woman Who Lost Her Sense of 'Mine'
(Photo: Steven Taylor) By Melissa Dahl People get attached to their stuff. Two-year-olds, for instance, have very strong opinions about what's theirs ("MINE!"), and are suspicious about sharing, no matter what nonsense their adult caregivers spew about this caring thing. And although (most) people eventually learn to follow appropriate social norms, that relationship to stuff and things still matters throughout the life span, and even, in a way, beyond it -- when you're gone, after all, your loved ones will likely inherit your most prized possessions. If nothing else, at least your memory will live on through, say, a par...

Researchers present key findings on detection of caries around the margins of amalgam restorations using four technologies
This study found that The Canary System ® can detect caries under the intact margins of amalgam restorations more accurately than Spectra, DIAGNOdent and visual examination.   Finding caries beneath intact amalgam margins is a challenging clinical problem because of the nature of the material.   Amalgam is dense, radiopaque and reflects light from its surface.   The study found that visual examination could not detect caries.   The glow or fluorescence from the amalgam prevented Spectra from detecting any marginal caries.   DIAGNOdent was unable to consistently differentiate sound from carious t...

This is an expensive "do or die" medical procedure with limited availability.

Consider that every 10 minutes someone is added to an organ waiting list and twenty-one people a day die waiting. Remember one donor can save up to eight lives through multiple organ use. As of 2016, there are 121,527 people on an organ transplant waiting list and in 2015, but only about 15,000 ...
