Dental Treatment is Now Painless - 5 Reasons Why!

Dental Treatment is Now Painless - 5 Reasons Why!

A majority of us would rather undergo any form of torture than go to a dentist. There is some great news for the ones who are silently enduring their dental pains. Read on as we reveal how to get rid of your teething troubles and that too painlessly!

#1- NO MORE INJECTIONS

If the fear of a needle is what’s keeping you away from the dental office, then think again as we can now numb you with as little as just a paste, spray or solution that doesn’t require an injection for its delivery. This revolutionary new technology takes away the prick of the needle and the pressure of the liquid expanding your lips and gums, instead, the solution enters by a digitally controlled dispenser going in drop by drop making it virtually undetectable.

#2- NO MORE DRILLING

The sound of the drill can be one of the most known triggers for creating fear and anxiety in the patient's mind. When coupled with its vibrations, heat and pressure the experience it creates oscillates from unpleasant to downright unbearable. If the drill were replaced by a beam of light that can clean up decay, even the most reluctant people would open up to the experience. Once patients experience the difference they not only get the most urgent and necessary treatments done but also opt for preventive treatments.

#3-  BLADE FREE SURGERIES

If you had to undergo a dental surgery earlier you may have had to worry about blood loss, pain, swelling, stitches not to mention the countless gory images that come to mind - but fortunately not anymore ! A surgery can be completely pain-free with little or no bleeding, Immediate recovery,no stitches and no swellings having you back at work or play almost instantly.

#4- QUICK & EASY ROOT CANALS

Root canal treatment as a procedure is probably more dreaded than even extraction or removal of a tooth. The pain and fear associated with this treatment are due to the primitive way that it used to be done in earlier. Automated technologies make root canals completely painless, precise, quick and smooth in as little as just one session.

#5- RELAXING MEDICATION

If these reasons do not sound convincing enough then pain relieving and controlling drugs before or during your appointment may be the solution for you.

Great strides have been made in the field of pharmacology with medication that can block or control pain centres in the brain.

We now choose from a variety of medication ranging from oral drugs to breathing gases through a mask, that can relieve your anxiety during the procedure to a point that you no longer perceive or detect pain.

The only thing left to fear now remains a nagging toothache in the back of your mouth that you have been ignoring.

As hard as it may seem to believe, truth is, that with the best technology, great ambience, and a host of distraction techniques - a dental appointment may actually turn out to be pleasant and save you a world of pain in the future!

Internal depressive thoughts may cause for sleeplessness. Better to express your internal frustrated thoughts to your family members and friends. When burden of thoughts may come then your mind relaxed. Be friendly with others. Do not be alone. Feel always confident. Try to practise dynamic nature slowly it will come normal manner. Do not be sensitive. If you want you can change the total atmosphere. Be brave always. Feel always confidendent. Give positive suggestions to your mind. Better to take help of others in rush. Later slowly develop you alone cross the rush. Ok be confident do not feel depress. Ok best of luck.

For youngsters of your age masturbation is an alternative to get the same sexual pleasure as in sex. It is a perversion and since it brings instant relaxation people tend to do it frequently and get addicted, as you say. In order to decrease and stop masturbation, you may follow few suggestions - try to keep away from sexually stimulating materials like porns, pictures, films especially when alone. - find better and healthier ways of relaxation like talking to friends, playing outdoor games, exercising, gymming, swimming, following your own lost hobbies etc. - practice and learn relaxation responses with meditation, yoga, breathing exercises etc - have a healthy diet, avoid smoking and alcohol, having a good relaxing sleep if you still feel an uncontrollable urge to masturbate and keep feeling guilty for it, consult a psychiatrist. This could be part of an obsession then. Premature ejaculation needs treatment and counseling consult online for any queries and assistance.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

I always suffer from gas bloating problem. It worsens when I take oily foods. My appetite also not good.
It may be due to slow peristalsis, Food allergies or minimal Intestinal obstruction due to some infection/infestation/Inflammation, You may send me more information about your problem for better diagnosis Until then you can take Homeopathic Treatment. If you have Faith in Homeopathy, You can use following Homeopathic Medicines: (1) Kalmegh Q (2) Chelidonium Q Avoid fat fried food, take small meals at short intervals, preferably early breakfast and light dinner. Performing Kapalbhati Pranayama and Bhastrika Pranayama with Neoli-Kriya in mornings after passing stools will certainly help you until it is cured.

Itching around stitches has nothing to do with stitches which are 1 year old. Look for other causes and also at other places also. Apply powder clotrimazole (absorb, mycoderm-c) liberally on affected area, no ointments during summers, problem if infective will spread to other areas due to sweat + ointment. Powder will seal the area. Do write back after a week, if relief, otherwise seek opinion of a skin doctor.

Night falls or wet dreams are not abnormal. You should understand by now that you are no more a child, instead grown adult and are able to reproduce. Try to gain the right knowledge of the changes of growth at the pubertal age of your group.. As per the books of forensic medicine" masterbation is a perversion" and compulsive masterbation is a disease which needs counseling and treatment. At this age you are bound to be aroused by so many stimulii, try to find out and avoid e. G. Watching prone, continuously thinking about sex, going to places where you are aroused must be avoided. Don't remain alone, increase your social involvement make more good friends and give your time to them, spend more time in public. Engage your mind in other things. Some simple measures like exercise and meditation may help. But still if you are not able to overcome the problem you must consult a physician. We can add medicines also to support you. Regards.
