Brushing too hard.
All of us have heard by now that brushing hard may not be the solution to our dental woes.Going the soft gentle and frequent way is what we need to do so if you're still in the habit of waging a morning battle with your teeth let's try and remind ourselves to be gentle and clean them like porcelain not scrub them like the toilet bowl.
If you're in the habit of hardly brushing which means either brushing too quickly or brushing just once a day it can cost you!
As food accumulates and bacteria breakdown this accumulated food into acids which dissolve enamel -cavities are formed. These cavities need dental visits to fill up.
If small they can be done sooner and economically but if large they can end up causing you a lot of pain and even requiring multiple avoidable sittings.
Brushing with hard bristles.
Hard bristles tend to damage the teeth and we see multiple patients with severely work down teeth by just self inflicted brushing damage. Imagine thinking you're preventing a problem and actually creating one. While we commend the efforts of anyone who looks after their oral health we also ensure that overzealous brushes should use nothing more than extra soft bristles.
Not replacing your brush.
Replacing your brush is the most neglected aspect of oral hygiene that leaves everyone guessing and being a small detail even your dentist would most likely forget to discuss it. So here's the answer to your dilemma of when to replace your brush - ideally every 3-4 months or when the bristles start to fray whichever happens first.
Replacing brushes or brush heads has even proven to reduce throat infections as old bristles tend to start harbouring bacteria besides being inefficient at cleaning as well.
Flossing hasn't been in our culture or education. We probably encountered a floss much later than we saw or learnt to use a brush. It's very important that just like brushing is second nature to us or comes automatically so should flossing be taught and instilled in our system.
Flossing prevents the most number of cavities even more than brushing since not all brushes reach the areas that entrap food but floss definitely does.
It is ideally recommended to start your cleaning routine by flossing and then brushing.
An inexpensive method to save a lot of time and dental costs.

An ancient food, yoghurt has bad many great claims made about its healing properties. It is a valuable source of nutrients and it has the extra bonus of being an excellent infection fighter. Yoghurt is also very easy to make.
Whatever its healing properties, yoghurt is a nutritional boon. It is a good source of milk nutrients, such as protein, calcium, potassium and riboflavin. Yoghurt is recommended by many medical practitioners to postmenopausal women because it is such a rich source of calcium, which creates bone density, and helps to prevent the brittle-bone disease osteoporosis.
Research conducted at the Long island Jewish Medical Center, New York, has substantiated the claim that yoghurt is an effective treatment for vaginal yeast infections such as thrush. A group of women with a history of chronic yeast infections agreed to eat 225 grams ( 8 ounces) of ‘live’ yoghurt containing the Lactobacillus acidophilus culture each day for six months. As a result, they suffered far fewer yeast infections than a control group who did not eat yoghurt.
Research by Dr. George M. Halpern at the University of California School of Medicine at Davis found that yoghurt may also boost the immune system. People who ate two 225 gram pots o ‘live’ yoghurt containing Lactobacillus bulgaricus each day for four months had significantly higher blood level of gamma-interferon, one of the body’s infecition-fighting substances. Further studies by Dr. Halpern found that consuming regular doses of yoghurt also cut the chances of catching a cold by about 25 percent, and reduced the symptoms of hay fever by a similar amount. Yoghurt is also thought to increase the activity of NK (natural killer) cells in the body, which attack viruses.
Does only ‘live’ yoghurt work?
It was previously believed that only yoghurt which contained live cultures of Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus acidophilus and streptococcus thermophilus had disease-fighting powers. But research by Dr. Joseph A Scimeca at Kraft General Foods in the United States has shown that even yoghurt that has had the majority of its live cultures killed by heating or freezing will still boost the immune system.
A common infection, thrush is caused by the yeast Candida albicans. Although it is always present in the body, certain conditions and doses of antibiotics, can cause the yeast to proliferate and produce the infection. Thrush usually affects the vagina but may also affect the mouth, throat and anal area. Vaginal thrush produces a thick white or yellow discharge and intense irritation; oral thrush causes white patches in the mouth and anal thrush is associated with a rash and irritation.
MAKING YOUR OWN YOGHURT
- Yoghurt is cheap and very easy to make. All you need is a saucepan, a thermometer, a bowl or a vacuum flask, 570 of milk (any sort will do) and a tablespoon of ‘live’ plain yoghurt.
- Pour the milk into a saucepan and heat to boiling point. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the milk to cool to 49*C. Add 1 tablespoon of live plain yoghurt to the milk as a ‘starter’ and mix thoroughly.
- Pour the mixture into a bowl and cover it with non-PVC cling film. Alternatively, pour the yoghurt mixture into a vacuum flask and then screw down the stopper.
- If you are using a bowl, wrap it in a towel and put it in a warm place. Leave the mixture undisturbed until it thickens, usually after eight hours. Be careful not to let the mixture incubate for too long as it may start to separate.
- Pour into pots and eat immediately or refrigerate. Yoghurt will keep for up to five days. Save 1-2 tablespoons of your yoghurt as a ‘starter’ for the next batch. You may have to buy a fresh ‘starter’ after making a few batches.
If you want a yoghurt with a creamier texture or a fresh tasty dessert, follow these suggestions.
To make a thick Greek-style yoghurt, line a large colander or sieve with gauze or muslin. Pour boiling water through the gauze to scald it. Place the colander or sieve over a bowl, pour in the yoghurt and let it drip overnight .
Add honey, chopped fruit, or unsweetened cooked fruit puree for sweetness or flavor after the yoghurt has been made.
Frozen yoghurt made with low-fat milk provides a less fattening dessert than ice cream.
IDEAS FOR USING YOGHURT
- Yoghurt is delicious eaten on its own, but combining it with other foods can provide a variety of nutritious snacks or meals. Choose low-fat varieties.
- Add yoghurt to soups or casseroles to thicken and add creaminess. When cooking with yoghurt, use a low heat high temperatures can make the mixture curdle.
- Use yoghurt as a tasty topping for muesli or fruit desserts, potato salad, baked potatoes and cold pasta dishes.
- Add lemon rind and paprika to yoghurt to make a sauce for kebabs.
- Mix fresh herbs and garlic with yoghurt to transform it into a delicious dip or dressing for salads.
- Use yoghurt instead of cream in cake fillings and toppings.
Hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia or pattern baldness is a condition that affects both men and women equally. Surgical hair transplantation is the only solution for restoring the lost hair in pattern baldness when medical hair restoration does not offer you a good hair re-growth. If you have well-defined and clearly established areas or patterns of baldness on the crown with healthy dense coverage of hair at the sides and the back of the head, you are probably suitable for a hair transplant surgery. Hair that is transplanted in the frontal region of the skull generally offers the best results. However, a hair transplant procedure can also be carried out on any other area of your head if you have some bald patch there.
It is best to have detailed information about the hair transplant procedure before you make plans to undergo a surgery. It is only after you have read through all the information that you can understand and appreciate the significance of surgical hair restoration. The information will also help you decide whether you are the right candidate for the hair transplant surgery. Receiving a hair transplant can improve your appearance and self-confidence.
All those who can opt for a hair transplant:
Men with male-pattern baldness
Women suffering from hair thinning
Anyone who has lost some hair from a burn or scalp injury
Hair replacement isn’t a good option for:
Women with a wide-spread pattern of hair loss throughout the scalp
People who don’t have enough “donor” hair sites from which to remove hair for transplant
People who form keloid scars (thick, fibrous scars) after injury or surgery
People whose hair loss is due to medication like chemotherapy
Two types of procedures
It's worth noting that there are new surgical techniques involved in hair transplants:
- FUE - Follicular Unit Extraction: The hairs are individually extracted from the back of the head and re-planted across the area. This is a lengthy, pain-staking process but the result is minimal scarring and a very natural-looking hairline.
- FUT - Follicular Unit Transplantation: This technique involves taking a larger area or 'strip' of hair from the back of the head, dividing it into smaller units and then re-planting those units in the desired area of hair loss. Scarring can be slightly more conspicuous at the back of the head as a larger area has been removed but an expert surgeon will minimise incision marks to ensure rapid healing.
Hair transplant do, of course, utilise your own natural hair and re-growth can be expected within 4 weeks of surgery. Great care must be taken during your recovery period to protect the newly-transplanted hair. However, once it is deemed safe to resume normal activities, the results can be life-transforming. A successful hair transplant is permanent and can restore confidence and self-esteem. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

A rash is a distinct change noticeable on the skin. The change may be on the skin color or the skin texture. It might make your skin scaly, itchy, lumpy and even irritated. You might get skin rashes if you are allergic to a particular substance, or if you are under some medicine which may have a side effect. Many cosmetics may also trigger skin rashes. Certain diseases like chicken pox or measles also cause the appearance of skin rashes. In order to deal with skin rashes, here are a few things you could do and use:
1. Care at home: With a sudden outburst of rashes, wash the affected area with water and mild soap to cool it down. Make sure you don't scratch there even if it itches, as that may cause infection. You may also apply cold water to help it cool down. Avoid sunlight as much as you can, as it will aggravate the condition. Wear loose fitting clothes so that there is minimal contact of the fabric and the skin as such contact may make the rash itch. Avoid using perfumes or deodorants as even they might set of the itchy feeling. Use a mild soap while bathing.
2. Use hydrocortisone cream: Hydrocortisone cream is also known as anti-itching cream. It helps to reduce the itching and redness as well as lessen the swelling. Hydrocortisone is a mild form of corticosteroid. Make sure you don't use it if the affected part is infected or sore because then the results will be the opposite from the one you want.
3. Use calamine lotions: Calamine lotions will give you relief from the pain caused due to the skin rash. It will also relieve you of the itching and the irritation which the rash causes. It will also help ooze dry and watery discharge from the rash. If you are pregnant or lactating, consult your doctor before using calamine lotions.
4. Have antihistamine tablets: If the skin rash is due to an insect bite, then you can take antihistamine tablets for it. These tablets reduce itching and lighten the rash until it disappears.
Even when you are using any of the above medicines, make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients of the medicine as that will just cause more complications. So consult your doctor before using any medicine. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.
