Do you know eating a piece of cheese after food can be useful ?

Do you know eating a piece of cheese after food can be useful ?
Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

An Insight on Teeth Whitening

BDS, Certification In Oral Implantology
Dentist, Ghaziabad
An Insight on Teeth Whitening

What is it?
Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. Most dentists perform tooth whitening. Whitening is not a one time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.

What it is used for?
The outer layer of the tooth is called the enamel. The color of natural teeth is created by the reflection and scattering of light off the enamel, combined with the color of the dentin under it. Your genes affect the thickness and smoothness of the enamel. Thinner enamel allows more of the color of the dentin to show through. Having smoother or rougher enamel also affects the reflection of light and therefore the color.

Every day, a thin coating (pellicle) forms on the enamel and picks up stains. Tooth enamel also contains pores that can hold stains. The most common reasons for teeth to get yellow or stained are:

  • Using tobacco
  • Drinking dark colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
  • Not taking good care of your teeth

Aging makes teeth less bright as the enamel gets thinner and the dentin becomes darker. It is also possible to have stains inside the tooth. These are called intrinsic stains. For example, intrinsic stains can be caused by exposure to too much fluoride as a child while teeth are developing. Other causes include tetracycline antibiotics. They can stain a child's teeth if taken by a mother during the second half of pregnancy or by a child who is 8 years old or younger. Teeth are still developing during these years. Trauma can also darken a tooth and tooth whitening is the most effective way to treat on surface (extrinsic) stains.

Please do a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. If it is negative take it as periods. Your periods are only scanty because uterus lining is not growing. Deviry is only progesterone and it will again thin the endoetriumI. If your pregnancy test is negative you have to take both estrogen and progesterone combined pill which is the oral contraceptives pill to build up your endometrium and get a freelowHere contraceptive is given to build uterus lining since it contains estrogen.

Hello doc I want to know it is easy for us to penetrate a vagina but can we penetrate the urethra and if we can what will be the complications and result.

You can never penetrate urethra because the opening is too small to allow insertion of finger, not to think about penis.

Flax Seeds (Alsi) - 6 Health Benefits You Never Knew!

Flax Seeds (Alsi) - 6 Health Benefits You Never Knew!

Flax seeds are one of the world’s oldest super foods. They can improve your skin and hair health, keep your heart healthy, fight cancer, lower cholesterol and help you lose weight. Yet, they hardly look impressive. Small and brown with no smell, nobody can guess that they are such reservoirs of nutrients invaluable for our health and well-being.

Nutrient profile

  1. Flax seeds are the richest sources of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids in the world!
  2. They are the number one source of lignans in our diets.
  3. They are also storehouses of minerals like manganese, magnesium as well as fibre, protein and vitamin B1.

Health benefits of flax seeds

  1. Heart healthy: Omega-3 essential fatty acids are known as 'good' fats that have been shown to have a number of heart healthy effects. Flax seeds can naturally reduce cholesterol levels. This happens because the high fibre content in flax traps cholesterol in the digestive tract so it doesn’t get absorbed. They also prevent hardening of arteries due to deposition of plaque and treat heart arrhythmias.
  2. Super digestive aids: Fibre in flax seeds helps delay the passage of food through the GI tract. This increases nutrient absorption in the small intestine. Fibre also supports colon detoxification, fat loss and reduces sugar cravings.
  3. Natural hormones: Lignans are very important plant hormones as well as antioxidants. The lignans in flax have estrogenic properties. After menopause, estrogen levels in women drop to abysmal levels. Use of flax seeds can shore–up estrogen levels and provide protection for bones, heart and other organs. These provide benefits like anti-ageing, hormone balancing and health of body cells. Studies also show that flax can reduce hot flashes experienced during menopause by half. Lignans are also known for their anti-viral and antibacterial properties,
  4. Flaxseeds are Gluten-free: Most grains we consume are gluten rich like wheat. Flax, on the other hand, is low in gluten. This means that flax is anti- inflammatory and reduces inflammation in any part of our bodies. People suffering from celiac disease and auto-immune diseases can thus include flax in their diet without a problem.
  5. Most Magnesium-rich food in the world: Magnesium helps in keeping our muscles healthy and its deficiency is the biggest reason for sore muscles, fatigue and cramps.
  6. Cancer fighter extraordinaire: In animal studies, the plant Omega-3 fatty acid found in flaxseed, called ALA, has been shown to inhibit tumour incidence and growth. Flax seeds is also very effective against breast cancer. 

Flaxseed is by no means a magic bullet against every disease known to man, but it comes close to being one. If you are thinking of reaping its benefits, use flax seeds as much possible and add them in your curries, soups, smoothies or just roast and eat to experience the flax miracle.

Dear lybrate-user its common to have the symptoms which you are having during periods. If it is unbearable then definitely you have to consult a gynae but if its not then medications wil help. Meftal spas is the best if you are not allergic to the medication. God bless n take care.

I and my wife has been trying for a child for almost 4 years. I think my sperm count is not up to the mark. So I want to be treated. So please help me. My age is 36.

Why do you think that it's not up to the mark. You have to test it. Now, as 4 years have elapsed, we have to concentrate on both of you- checking of both so that we can detect the exact cause and start treatment. Don't worry. Good luck.

Is it safe to drink saffron (kesar) milk during pregnancy and will it influence my baby's complexion?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Is it safe to drink saffron (kesar) milk during pregnancy and will it influence my baby's complexion?
It is safe to to drink saffron (kesar) milk during pregnancy. Saffron may reduce blood pressure and mood swings and uterine contraction also; so it should not be used in excess. One or two strands of saffron to a glass of milk or food during pregnancy is healthy. Drinking safron milk does not change the complexion or make the baby fair as there is no such evidence to support this claim. Baby's complexion depends on parents genes and not on any food you eat during pregnancy.

You have irregular periods. I advise you to do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid non veg and eggs. Follow this and give feedback.

I started smoking a few months back and it continued for about 2 months. Now my flatmate is accusing me of giving her PCO (polycystic ovarian syndrome?). I think 2 months is very less time considering I smoked in my room and that too a max of 4-5 cigarettes a day. Is there any truth to what she is saying?

Smoking is always injurious to health. Active smoker it affects more than passive smoker. About your query, I do not think so, pcod is due to bodily hormonal disturbance. It dosent occur suddenly. It is a gradual process in which person get irregular and delayed menses, weight gain etc. Family history of thyroid is also an important factor.

In 1 month of regular trying chance of pregnancy is only 15%. So do not lose heart. Try for 6 months. If no success, consult doctor to see if there is any problem in husband or wife and treat it.

She might be having hormonal imbalance or she might be normal. Having sex 2-3 times in a day in young age is normal. Better get an opinion from competent doctor.
