Getting Necessary Dental Care – Knowing The Options

By Marilyn G. Combs / November 11, 2017
Getting Necessary Dental Care - Knowing The Options

Anyone who is living on a fixed income is not thrilled to add another expense to their budget when it comes to the need for routine dental care. Many believe that Medicare pays for dental cleanings, extractions, fillings, dentures and more but that is not the case. Sadly, dental care wasn’t added to the original Medicare bill.

To reduce the cost of dental care, there are a few techniques one can implement along with finding affordable dental plans which are more available than ever, especially online. But before investing on one’s own affordable dental plan, they should consider if it’s a smart move. There are some select plans through Medicare that offer dental benefits and it’s worth looking into.

Other popular dental plans included United Health and United Concordia, but these are traditional plans and as such, they have caps, and won’t cover much of the expensive needs to include cosmetic procedures, root canals, implants, and more.

Take a Vacation:

For pricier procedures, many will travel out of the country. There are some countries that offer cheaper dental procedures, in fact sometimes up to 75% off. Just be sure that the country in question has good reviews as far as care, and follows all rules set forth by the Joint Commission International. A fully accredited facility is sure to follow safe practices.

While an option, many prefer to get all procedures in the U.S.A and not pay to travel for them. Circumstances vary in every case.

Try Chain Dentistry:

There is a steady rise in chain dentistry which offers an alternative to affordable dental plans. It is believed that this change will improve the future as far as dental care for those who have trouble obtaining necessary care. Not only do they help clients, but they also employ thousands nationwide.

The only issue is what type of care one will receive, and that is variable with chains as it is with other providers. Ask if the same dentist will be seen every time, or if there will be a group of dentists. Sometimes lower costs don’t equate to the best care possible, and affordable dental plans are still sought after.

Discount Sites:

The internet is full of daily deals and sites that offer discount dental procedures to those who don’t carry affordable dental plans. This is a great source for finding deals in a pinch on dental, vision and even prescriptions.

However, these deals aren’t a replacement for carrying affordable dental plans, so it’s important to continue the search. Also, it’s important to do the same research as for when looking for a new provider. There are plenty of sites that offer dental reviews.

Be a Practice Patient:

Many have heard of saving money by having their hair done at a beauty school, and there are student dental clinics that offer the same discounts. Since they are overseen by a licensed professional one can rest easy knowing that they’ll get great care.

Be sure it is an accredited dental school or dental hygienist program before making an appointment. Much like going to a dental provider on a discount, these schools aren’t dependable in an emergency but are wonderful for regular cleanings and minor procedures.

In the end, it’s utterly important to find an affordable dental plan that offers every type of coverage that one needs. Keep in mind not just regular cleanings and care, but also cosmetic dentistry and periodontics. This way, the patient can ensure that they are well taken care of at any moment. There are plenty of plans on the market today, many offered online from providers that have a huge network of dentists for one to choose from.

How to Encourage Your Kids to Make Healthy Food Choices

How to Encourage Your Kids to Make Healthy Food Choices

With the ever-increasing rates of obesity and consequent medical problems (like diabetes and joint pains) on the rise in children today, you are bound to pay more attention to your child’s health than usual.

Parenting is no longer about allowing your child the benefit of an extra ice-cream or a pack of chips. These acts will only encourage bad eating habits in your child and place him at higher risk for all kinds of dangerous medical diseases. To save your child from these risks, you will have to make sure they are trained to make healthy food choices.

The first thing to remember here is that a parent needs to instill a sense of fun about good food choices. Kids can also be kept interested in food by involving them in some light fun cooking and baking. Make them feel like it is something they enjoy doing. If they help you make that batch of whole-meal muffins,

chances are they will enjoy eating them too. It is also advisable to make sure that you begin this healthy food choice routine as early as possible. If bran bread is the only kind of bread that your child is accustomed to, they will accept it as a norm. It is much more practical than giving them tastes of regular bread initially and then expecting them to switch to a healthier type.

Similarly, you can treat them to frozen yogurt or low-fat ice cream and honey instead of sugar. Make fresh fruit seem more fun by pointing out their fun recipes and colors. Kids also take up habits from parents so if you yourself follow a healthier routine your kids are bound to adopt it. Keep them away from high sugar drinks and make smoothies or shakes at home to ensure that your children are having safe and healthy things to eat and drink.

If you train your children to make healthy choices today, they will grow up to make healthy choices all their lives. As a parent or a guardian, it is your responsibility to teach kids to choose healthy lifestyle and eating habits for themselves. Parents who teach their children to eat healthily can rest assured that their children will make these choices throughout their lives.

Teaching children to cook and have fun while cooking is also a great way to celebrate life with your family.

The Contact Lenses – Problems, Care, and Types

By Marilyn G. Combs / October 22, 2017
The Contact Lenses - Problems, Care, and Types

Contact lenses are magical pieces of plastic kept on the eyes that allow you to see without glasses. It may be used as a substitute for glasses in most of the cases, allowing you to dispense with them. Contact lenses may be used for cosmetic purposes to change the apparent color of your eyes or may also be used to treat certain eyes diseases.

You have to consult an ophthalmologist or optometrist, or possibly an optician who will help you to have contact lens. The person who fits the lens must first decide if your eyes are healthy enough to wear the contact lenses or not.

If you are fit to wear it then, fitter fits the correct lenses for your eyes and your needs and teaches you how to use and care for them. You should strictly follow the instructions given by the optician to take care of your contact lens because eyes are very sensitive part of your body. The most common reasons for contact-lens wearers to seek care is irritation of the eyes, redness, or blurred vision.

These can be caused by the lenses wearing out or warping, a change in the eyes requiring new lenses, poor fitting of the lenses, poor care of the lenses, or sensitivity to solutions. These relatively minor inconveniences must be evaluated because they may signal the onset of corneal ulcers and deeper infection. There are different types of variety of contact lens are available in the market.

1.Soft Lenses:

Soft contact lenses are those that allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea and are made up of soft, flexible plastics. Newer soft lens materials include silicone-hydro-gels to provide more oxygen to your eye while you wear your lenses. Soft contact lenses may be easier to adjust to and are more comfortable than rigid gas permeable lenses.

2.Rigid-Gas-Permeable(RGP):

Rigid gas permeable contact lenses (RGP’s) generally give a clearer, crisper vision and are more resistant and durable to deposit buildup. They are easier to handle and less likely to tear. However, they are not as comfortable initially as soft contacts and it may take a few weeks to get used to wearing RGP’s, compared to several days for soft contacts. They tend to be less expensive over the life of the lens since they last longer than soft contact lenses.

3.Extended Wear Contact Lenses:

Extended wear contact lenses are available for overnight wear ranging from one to six nights and then replaced every one to two weeks. Extended wear contact lenses are usually soft contact lenses. They allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea and are made of flexible plastics. Length of continuous wear depends on lens type and your eye care professional’s evaluation of your tolerance for overnight wear. There are also a very few rigid gas permeable lenses that are designed and approved for overnight wear.

The Cat Dental Care Secrets From the Experts

The Cat Dental Care Secrets From the Experts

Practicing good dental hygiene on your cat prevents gum disease, tooth loss and the buildup of tartar and plaque. If possible, begin a dental care routine when your cat is young or still a kitten so that he gets used to the process.

An adult cat who has never had his teeth cleaned before will resist it, because cats do not like having their mouths or teeth touched, so be patient. If he refuses to let you brush his teeth, take him to the veterinarian and let her do it for you. She also can remove any hardened tartar and built up plaque on the teeth. Most vets recommend brushing a cat’s teeth once a week.

Before you begin brushing, get your cat used to you working around his mouth by opening it and looking at his gum and teeth. To open his mouth, hold him in your lap (or have someone else hold him) and put your middle finger and thumb at the corners.

Hook your fingers gently inside and tilt your cat’s head back. When his mouth opens, look inside. You can also peek inside when he yawns. The gums should look pink and healthy and the teeth should be intact. If you see pale, swollen, or bleeding gums or missing, cracked or crooked teeth, take your cat to the vet right away.

After examining your cat’s mouth, gather your dental care supplies. You should have a toothbrush or finger cap designed for cats, as well as feline safe toothpaste. Most come in flavors such as tuna, chicken, or beef, so your cat should like the taste. Never use the toothpaste designed for humans, it could make him seriously ill.

Now you are ready to brush your cat’s teeth. Here’s how:

First, wet the toothbrush (or finger cap), then apply a tiny bit of toothpaste to it.

Next, brush the teeth one row at a time. So not scrub hard, just pass the toothbrush or finger cap lightly over the outside of the teeth.

You only need to clean the outside because a cat’s rough tongue brushes the inside of the teeth. There is no need to rinse his mouth because the toothpaste is edible.

Your cat may struggle a bit at first, but he should settle down when he realizes that the toothpaste tastes good. If he becomes too upset by the whole process, stop what you are doing and let him go. You can try again another time when he has calmed down.

The Healthy Foods Don’t Have to Be Boring

The Healthy Foods Don't Have to Be Boring

Many people have commented on healthy foods and the lack of flavor and texture they provide. I’m not sure which cookbooks they’re looking in. There are many tricks that can be used to make your favorite foods in a healthier manner.

Here are a few:

Avocados:

These fruits are high in monounsaturated fat, which means they are healthy. The richness can help satisfy the fat cravings you experience in a way that is beneficial to your body. Mixing it with salsa can improve the flavor and texture without adding a lot of salt.

Herbs Vs. Salt:

A little salt in a dish goes a long way towards making it taste better…even if it’s a dessert. Unfortunately, a lot of salt is what we tend to consume. Consider cutting back the salt by adding other herbs and spices. Strong flavors like sage and rosemary can help in this area.

Nonstick Pans:

These miracles of modern technology are helpful in more than just reducing cleanup time. You can saute to your heart’s content, as you don’t need a ton of oil to accomplish the cooking. You may need to add a bit of water to some foods, but without the oil, they are both tasty and healthy.

Olive Oil:

You don’t have to go without all oil when eating a healthy diet. Olive oil, like avocados, contain a healthy fat and is actually beneficial to your body. The better the quality, the healthier it is, so go ahead and splurge on the good stuff. You may be surprised by the flavor.

Roasting:

Invest in a good roasting pan with a rack and you will find many ways to enjoy your food. Roasting it above the pan allows any fat to drip off into the bottom. The rack also allows heat to circulate evenly, cooking both sides at the same time. One recipe my husband and I like a lot is roast chicken. Slip some seasonings under the skin, then roast as you normally would. Yum.

Whole Grain:

This is the Waterloo for many. Whole grain pasta and rice have a tendency to be gummy in flavor and texture. However, they aren’t the only ones at your supermarket. Corn tortillas are made from whole grain. Many pieces of bread using whole wheat flour taste great, though some of them to come out like cardboard. Play around until you find a product that suits your needs and taste buds.

It doesn’t take a lot to have a healthy, interesting and tasty diet. All you have to do is open your eyes to the possibilities and be willing to take some chances while you find foods that fit your lifestyle. It really is worth your time.

The Four Secret Ingredients To Make Your Eyes Look Younger

The Four Secret Ingredients To Make Your Eyes Look Younger

Like many people, I am very careful when selecting my skin-care products, especially for the sensitive under-eye area. We all want to use a wonderful eye serum or cream that would lighten the dark circles, diminish puffiness and visibly reduce the fine lines and wrinkles.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know what eye-care product could instantly adage and wake-up the tired-looking eyes?

I have tried many eye cosmetic products, and after so many years of personal research, I could say that I have discovered the key ingredients, which do make a difference when taking care of my delicate under-eye skin.

I will list them below and I hope you will find them working miracles for your eyes, as well:

I would start by mentioning DMAE, dimethylaminoethanol, known to improve the appearance of sagging eyelids in a short period of time. As we get older, unfortunately, we find ourselves trying to fight the sagging, droopy eyelids that give us a tired-look. I love to tell you that I have successfully used an eye cream with DMAE over my eyelids and I could definitely name it “the magic eye lift”. DMAE is, without any doubt, a natural and safe eye lift for me!

Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C- Ester (ascorbyl palmitate) are important antioxidants that also did an amazing job for my under-eye area. They are scientifically proven to fight the action of free radicals and prevent the future damage of these radicals.

Together they help reduce puffiness and reduce dark circles, and I am so excited to tell you that after a few weeks of using these two ingredients, I had no more puffiness or dark circles: my skin around my eyes became luminous and more radiant! However, if you have stubborn dark circles, you might want to try mulberry and lime: a dear friend of mine used them together and her ugly dark circles started lightening up within the first two weeks.

Finally, to keep the under-eye area hydrated, I applied hyaluronic acid daily. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body, is often presented as “the fountain of youth” and many people, who used it in their eye serums and creams, reported that this substance filled up their fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

These are the four secret ingredients that I am always looking for when buying my eye-care products and I have often got many compliments on the youthful appearance of my eyes. These ingredients, together with a good diet rich in fruits and vegetables, regular exercising, and good sleep always do the trick for me. We all know that nothing betrays our age better than sagging and tired-looking eyes!

The Good Dental Care Is Crucial to Your General Health

The Good Dental Care Is Crucial to Your General Health

In truth, many of us do not pay enough attention to the health of our mouths, particularly the teeth and gums. Some give their teeth only a cursory brushing, often skip brushing, use the wrong brushing technique, and put off seeing a dentist even though they’re experiencing discomfort or have damaged or missing teeth. This neglect, however, can have very serious consequences for one’s general health.

How is this possible? Research has shown that bacteria from infections in the teeth and gums can travel to other parts of the body through the bloodstream. A few examples:

If bacteria reach the heart and valves, they can cause an inflammation called bacterial endocarditis, a complication that is even more serious if the person already has heart disease or damage.

Since digestion begins in the mouth by way of saliva, bacteria swallowed with chewed food can cause problems in the digestive system in the stomach or intestines. These include disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome.

Women who have periodontal disease are about 7 times more prone to have babies who are premature or underweight than women with healthy gums because bacteria from the mouth can actually travel to the womb through the placenta into the amniotic fluid.

Gum disease increases the possibility of blood clot formation that can lead to strokes or heart attacks.

Bacteria can travel to the site of a joint replacement and cause an infection of the implanted joint that can be difficult for the immune system to overcome.
Within the mouth, poor oral hygiene leads to tooth decay and gum disease. Cavities and decay of the enamel coating weaken the teeth, leading to their eventual loss if fillings and other repairs are not done in time.

Bacteria in the gums leads to gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, which is treatable. If the gingivitis is not caught early enough, it will progress to periodontitis, which is very serious and irreversible. Also called periodontal disease, it is the stage where the gums recede, the jaw bone becomes diseased and damaged, and the teeth can loosen and fall out.

Most of us have had a toothache or other temporary mouth pain that makes it difficult to eat properly. If such pain becomes chronic, it can lead to poor nutrition because one avoids foods that are painful to eat, and the diet becomes limited and unbalanced. In this way, too, one’s general health suffers.

Obviously, it’s much better to avoid such serious health problems, and it’s so simple and easy to do, by simply practicing good dental care. It’s also wise to make regular visits to a good affordable dentist. In my companion article, Good Dental Care Begins at Home – Healthy Teeth for a Healthy Life, you will find practical advice for taking the best care of your mouth, teeth, and gums.

Choosing The Healthy Food Wisely in Restos

Dining out is one treat everyone loves to indulge once in a while. For someone who does all the cooking at home, this is certainly considered leisure. However, if you are on diet, eating out can be tough especially when it comes to choosing food that will not make you feel guilty. Here are some tips that can help you make eating out an enjoyable experience.

One must be aware that most restaurants have nice looking menu pictures that showcase the food they serve. Other than being effective in stimulating one’s appetite, these pictures can speak a thousand words. You should avoid looking at the pictures.

Another thing to avoid when looking over the menu is getting swayed by delectable sounding food names on the list. Again, these names can conjure up images in you that will start off your cravings of food that you have been avoiding.

“World’s Best Chocolate Cake ” sounds so tempting and mouthwatering, isn’t it? You would think that a chocolate cake that has that name would certainly taste heavenly! Unfortunately, it turns out to be just an ordinary cake loaded with calories. For this reason, it would be best to concentrate on the food description and not the name.

There are restaurants that have a different set of menu to cater their patrons who are on diet. This makes it easier for them to give their preferences without feeling guilty. Psychological studies found that it is a bad idea to mix healthy food choices with the unhealthy ones because a person’s natural tendency would be to choose those that they should avoid.

Some food establishment tricks their customers into thinking they are ordering healthy food because of the many various vegetables present in the picture.

In reality, not all vegetables are healthy especially when they are fried or coated.

Lastly, avoid sampling food. You may think a little bit won’t hurt but these can turn nasty if you took several bites instead of one. These┬átips for you is very nice.

Follow these tips and you are surely on your way to an enjoyable time with friends or family.

The Blink Away! Forget Pink Eye at the Urgent Care Clinic

By Marilyn G. Combs / August 20, 2017
The Blink Away! Forget Pink Eye at the Urgent Care Clinic

Did you know?

The average person blinks 22 times per minute. That basically means within a year, we’ll have blinked around 8,000,000 times.

Why so much though?

According to medical research, it’s both a defense mechanism and sustaining motion for the eye. Not only does it provide moisture to keep the eye from drying out, but it also protects from pesky irritants like dust, pollen, bugs, etc. Yet for all blinking does, it cannot protect against infections like conjunctivitis.

More commonly called pink eye, this inflammation of the inner layer of the eyelid mostly comes from viral or bacterial infections. There are of course other causes like allergies, Chlamydia, parasites, fungi, use of contact lenses, certain diseases, and chemical exposure. While these may be potential origins, they are not as common. Thus, for the sake of time (yours and mine), we’ll just go over the primary two.

For the most part, conjunctivitis comes from a virus, generally when you’re suffering from the common cold and/or a sore throat. (You won’t find it every time you’re feeling sick, but don’t be surprised if you see it on occasion). The infection starts in one eye, and can easily travel to the other one.

Much like its infectious counterpart, the bacterial pink eye is highly contagious. The difference between the two though comes from more than names. Bacterial conjunctivitis develops from a pus-producing bacterium that will bring about irritation or grittiness. Depending on the situation, you’ll see a dark, gray, or yellow mucus/pus secreting from your eye. Careful when you blink. The discharge can cause your eyelids to stick to each other, especially after you sleep.

So how do you know for sure if you have it? While the name implies a pink color, more often than not, you’ll see red. Other symptoms may include but are not limited to: swelling, burning, eye pain, blurred vision, excessive tearing, itching, some sensitivity to light, drainage from the eye, and/or feeling like there’s something in your eye. You’ll probably do a bit more blinking as well, given that your eyes will be drier and more sensitive. If you’re really not sure, check with a doctor.

The easiest place to find one immediately is an urgent care clinic. Think about it, pink eye is very contagious. If you’ve got a cold, you can spread it through coughing or sneezing. It can also be spread through touch. Touch your eye, touch a doorknob, hold someone’s hand, touch food and share it with someone. You’re going to get people sick fast.

If you’re in an ER waiting for who knows how long, think about how many things/people you can cough/sneeze on or touch. That or while you’re waiting, you might catch something they have and worsen your condition. Very tempting isn’t it?

Stop by an urgent clinic instead, where doctors will treat you readily upon arrival and with friendly courtesy. You’ll save time being sick and save your family, friends, coworkers, and random strangers from being infected. Yes, you’ll even be able to blink again.

The Gaining a Better Smile Using An Electronic Toothbrush For Dental Care

The Gaining a Better Smile Using An Electronic Toothbrush For Dental Care

Millions of people spend thousands of dollars on items that will help them to appear healthier and more attractive. These items range from makeup, expensive hair treatments, designer clothing, accessories, tanning beds, spa treatments, and more.

Though these things can contribute to a person’s physical appeal at times, they are superficial and cosmetic things that do not promote a healthy body or an attractive smile.

You can gain a better smile by using an electronic toothbrush. If your mouth and dental hygiene are healthy, your face will be more attractive and your smile will light up your face. If people begin to learn to focus on the root of the problem in their physical appearance, they will save massive amounts of money by not having to spend so much on frivolous cosmetic items.

An electronic toothbrush is superior when it comes to types of toothbrushes and home dental maintenance. Due to its battery-operated brush head, the bristles rotate in an effective, rapid, and efficient manner and greatly reduce the amount of plaque and food debris left in the mouth compared to a standard manual toothbrush.

Many people are self-conscious about their teeth and their smile and will not smile fully in the presence of others due to being embarrassed about the condition of their teeth.

To help prevent this happening to you, or to help reduce the plaque and other unwanted germs in your teeth, begin considering using an electronic toothbrush for your dental care two to three times a day. This will make a dramatic difference in your smile in just a few short weeks.

Taking care of your teeth is extremely important. Once your adult teeth rot and decay or have to be pulled, there are no new teeth to grow in. There are no second chances at gaining more natural teeth if you do not care for your own adult teeth in a proper and assertive manner. An electronic toothbrush gets between the teeth better than a normal toothbrush and also promotes healthier gums, resulting in an overall whiter and brighter smile.

Cosmetic applications are not the solution to a better smile. Getting to the root of the problem and allowing your mouth and teeth to become healthier will result in a more attractive smile and in healthier teeth, both now and for the future. A more attractive smile can be yours by investing in an electronic toothbrush and your teeth will feel fresher, healthier, and cleaner.
