Tobacco - 7 Ways it Affects Your Dental Health

Tobacco - 7 Ways it Affects Your Dental Health

Tobacco has many ill effects on the health and dental health is one of them. From dark stains to poor gum health to increased incidence of decay to the more severe oral cancer, tobacco has a very detrimental effect on your dental health. Read on know more about how harmful tobacco can be on the dental system.

  1. Brown teeth and tongue: One of the tell-tale signs of a smoker are the brown teeth and stained tongue. A dentist need not even be told that the person smokes, it just shows!! What is interesting is that these stains do not go away with a scaling, they just continue to form as long as tobacco is being put into the system.
  2. Gum disease: The oral health of a smoker is definitely not at its best. With the stains on the teeth, the gums are more prone for irritation and infection. This leads to grayish, unhealthy gums. The periodontal fibers are also affected, leading to bad breath, pocket formation and even tooth mobility in severe cases. The mouth is generally drier in comparison and so bacterial growth is more favored, further accelerating the process of gum disease and teeth decay.
  3. Dental caries: The increased amount of bacteria leads to greater incidence of dental decay. Chances of cervical decay (around the gum line) and root decay are higher in smokers.
  4. Bad breath: There are two reasons to it one is the tobacco per se and the second is the dry mouth, which leads to reduced saliva and increased bacterial growth.
  5. Impaired taste: The tongue has a constant coating too, leaving the taste buds unable to completely taste food substances. Ask any smoker a couple of questions and you would realize how they never get to enjoy and taste the food as it should be.
  6. Poor healing: Whether it is a gum disease, a tooth removal or a root canal therapy, smokers who go for dental treatment need a longer time to respond compared to nonsmokers. If smoking is continued at the same pace, then the chances of developing a dry socket with an extraction or a failed root canal therapy are quite high. There are more failures reported in success of implant in smokers as compared to non smokers.
  7. Cancer: The most dangerous and the most severe of all, cancer of the cheek, gums, lips, tongue, roof of the mouth can all happen in smokers, twice more likely in comparison with non-smokers.

Now, if all these are not good enough to kick the habit, remember this list is only for the mouth and the teeth. The whole body goes through a lot more harmful effects, and that should be a good reason to quit tobacco use in any form. If you need professional help, do not be embarrassed to seek.

My menstruation blood remains only for two days. I am 18 and I am kind of obese.

MD- homopaethy
Homeopath,
My menstruation blood remains only for two days. I am 18 and I am kind of obese.
Scanty menses can be due to firstly polycystic ovarian disease and secondly hypothyroidism. Homoeopathy can offer holistic treatment for both these disease conditions. I would suggest regular exercise and cutting down on processed food and refined sugar. Losing 5 percent of your body weight will also help you.

Your doctor is right. Your present problems have no relation to abortions. Get a tube test done hsg where a dye is injected through mouth of uterus and x ray pictures are taken if tubes are open then dye is spilled and if tubes are partially closed due to smug dye is injected with a little force and tubes get opened up. This test is diagnostic and therapeutic. Pregnancy rate after test is very high.

Hello doctor I'm 24 years old. Under fertility treatment I took hcg 5000 injection on 25 th October. (i.e 15th day of my period) when will check my pregnancy using HPT? When will the test give reliable result?

Hello doctor I'm 24 years old. Under fertility treatment I took hcg 5000 injection on 25 th October. (i.e 15th day of...
It works by causing the testes to release male sex hormones (e.g. Testosterone). This medication is also used in women to treat fertility problems. It is given after finishing another medication (menotropins) to cause the release of an egg (ovulation). Use HCG exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Trace amounts of hCG can remain the body for as many as fourteen days after hCG injections. HCG is the “pregnancy hormone”, or the hormone that is produced in the body when a woman is pregnant. HCG begins to be produced right after the fertilized egg begins to implant in the uterus. HCG is released by the placenta. Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone produced by the placenta, but it is also made in a laboratory and given as an injection to help with certain fertility problem. A urine pregnancy test (HPT) tries to detect if the urine has hCG or not. If you have been given an hCG injection (Profasi, Pregnyl) to trigger ovulation or to lengthen the luteal phase of your cycle, trace hCG amounts can remain in your system as long as 10-14 (sometimes even more) days after your last injection. These hcg hormones from the injection can give you what's called a "false positive pregnancy test" a pregnancy test that is positive without actually being pregnant. If you use a home pregnancy test after an hCG injection, it is advisable to wait 20 days before interpreting the test as positive or negative. The best way to detect a pregnancy after an hCG injection or shot is the hCG beta blood test. The blood test is much more sensitive than an urine pregnancy test. The blood hCG test can detect a pregnancy as early as 10 days after fertilization with one caveat. You need two tests several days apart. If you are not pregnant, then the blood hCG numbers will be zero or they will decrease. If you are pregnant then they will rise. As a general rule, in a normal pregnancy hCG beta numbers should go up by at least 60% in 2 days. If your blood hCG levels increase by at least 60% on the second day, then you are likely pregnant.

Hello, it is unlikely that in her case pregnancy would be a concern as she was not involved sexually with her bf, so the delay is most likely to be stress induced or due to a possibility of pcos as well. This needs to be investigated if her cycles have been irregular since last 6months but if this has been a primary episode than she can wait for next 3 months maintaining a menstrual calendar to watch for the pattern of bleed. If pregnancy has been ruled out for documentation then she can opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones. Regards.

Love Christmas Cake? Prepare Your Own Low Calorie Cake

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition, B.Pharma

Love Christmas Cake? Prepare Your Own Low Calorie Cake

With all the parties, late nights and heavy food, the festive season is notorious for weight gain. Along with a decorated tree, Christmas is synonymous with Christmas cake that tastes wonderful, but does nothing for your health and waistline. Store bought Christmas cakes are loaded with sugar and hence if possible, it is always better to bake your Christmas cake at home. As with any other type of food, home cooked food is always healthier than store or restaurant food. This is because you get to control the ingredients of your cake.

So here are a few tips on making a healthy Christmas cake:

  1. No added sugar: Unlike other cakes, Christmas cake does not really need additional sugar as the fruit inside it adds natural sweetness. Do not sprinkle the fruit in, but maintain a high ratio of fruit to flour. You can include all types of dried fruits, berries, apricots, dates, prunes, pineapples etc. in your cake. Traditionally, these fruits are used in their candied form, but for a healthier version of this cake, try using them in their natural or dehydrated form.
  2. Almond meal: If you buy a cake, it is likely to be made with refined flour. Refined flour has negligible nutritional value, but is very high on calories. Hence, when you’re baking a cake, consider replacing this flour with almond meal. Almond meal is lower in calories, gluten free and adds moisture to the cake. It is also rich in vitamin E, magnesium and potassium.
  3. Fresh fruit juice: Along with the pieces of fresh and dried fruit, the juice is also an essential element of Christmas cakes. Avoid opening a can here and instead use freshly squeezed juice as far as possible. Fresh fruit juice has no added sugars and is loaded with vitamins as compared to canned juice. It is also free from preservatives. You can also include the pulp that is extracted while juicing fruits like oranges into your cake.
  4. Coconut oil: A little oil is a must in cakes to make them moist and spongy. Replace your refined oil with coconut oil when baking a Christmas cake to make it healthier and more wholesome. Coconut oil has a high level of good cholesterol and when used wisely can also reduce the accumulation of fat in the body.
  5. Sides: Christmas cake is usually served with custard or ice cream; both of which are loaded with sugar and are unhealthy. Consider replacing these sides with natural yoghurt that has been sweetened with a drizzle of honey. Alternatively, you could also try some flavoured greek yoghurt and almond flakes. This will make your dessert light on the stomach and easier to digest.

Hello, This may be the withdrawal bleeding and indicative that you are pregnancy safe. However the bleeding flow should increase, if it doesn't then rule out pregnancy.

How can I calculate safe days fr sex? Is the method of subtracting 18 from shortest cycle and 11 from longest cycle valid? Can I follow this? My period is bit irregular. It varies between 22-26 days. Approx.

If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. That is UNSAFE PERIOD during which you should not have it. Period other than this fertile period in a menstrual cycle is considered as SAFE PERIOD.

Lower lip on the left side has been twitching for 10 days now. It happens many times in a day and lasts for few seconds.

Lower lip on the left side has been twitching for 10 days now. It happens many times in a day and lasts for few seconds.
There is no serious cause of this problem. One can experience this lip twitching due to fatigue, stress, excessive caffeine intake, emotion, or lack of potassium in your diet. Try having a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and take proper rest. This will be normalized.
