New weapons and strategies are developed nowadays with the dentists of this nation with the escalation of the fight against dental problems. And the one touted to be the most successful stratagems is currently being developed in the Pee Dee. Years and years, dentists called this job of keeping their patients’ teeth health a battle, but with the patient helping him however, preventive dentistry has recently risen and the stress is not on damage repair but instead, prevention.
Or, carrying the idea of battle a step higher is much like hitting the sanctuaries of the opponent before retaliation is in place. In this case, bacteria is truly the enemy, which thrives in the mouth and are around the teeth. Living off the leftover food substances, the bacteria form colonies inside the mouth and secrete acidic waste which are responsible for the damage that happens to teeth and gum tissue.
Dental experts behind the preventive dentistry program proved that the bacteria excrete plaque, a sticky film adhering to the tooth and then provides the environment for bacteria to thrive and grow in numbers. Through plaque existing around teeth, food substances are absorbed then digested so that the bacteria can secrete destructive waste matter. One area group, known as the Pee Dee dental study club, has expressed their awe towards this impressive program.
Mainly, this technique calls for the elimination of bacteria colonies and plaque around teeth. He shares that unwaxed dental floss and a soft bristled toothbrush can also do the work of breaking up the plaque that collected there. He states further that as soon as the plaque is done away with, it will not return for 24 to 30 hours. So that the plaque is broken up effectively, wrap a string around the fingers known as dental floss, then work it around the in between gaps of teeth as well as under the top areas of the gums. Using a soft multi tufted tooth brush along such areas is also recommended.
By enabling his patient to get these good habits, his goal has been achieved. It is essential, he states, that the patient sticks to this regimen daily. However, he stresses the fact that brushing the teeth cannot be replaced by just flossing. He further notes that both should appear as a team effort, as flossing is supplemental only. We shall see that in the long run, the two considerations of an average patient such as cost and pain involved shall diminish.
Proper applications done at home should not be painful at all and while there may be discomforts, one can expect this only during the initial cleaning attempts. But just think of the pain involved in teeth extraction or gum surgery which is far greater than such discomforts and beware for you will have to end up with those pains if your teeth are not properly cared for and neglected. As for cost, proper treatment at home is far less expensive than repair work or surgery. We may expect the need for repair work to last there as the main reason for the rise of these troubles are far from being adressed.
In a return trip to the southeast to speak to a group of dentists recently, a dentist said he was impressed by the interest in the program shown by southerners. He noted that there is a large base of people in the South who are in the low economic level and could save needed money by learning and using the preventive technique.
The overwhelming rise of such a radical new approach to dental problems can be attributed to the rise of population experienced by this country. He avers that due to the fact that dentists to treat everyone is not enough, the number requiring repair work should be downsized. A practical implication resides in prevent dentistry. When it comes to dental destruction, dental experts can cure it but not truly prevent it. But as per the illustration of other data sources, this form of treatment is nothing more than the impractical move of not servicing your automobile in the onset and only taking it to the mechanic after it completely stops running.
Ginger’s Sugarsnaps. Well, my grandma Ginger just died in a tragic hang-gliding accident but I refuse to be saddened. She died doing what she loved. For nearly 80 years my lovely grandma Ginger would hang glide over the poorer sections of America’s inner cities and shower them with her internationally famous sugar snap cookies, also known as Soundsnaps.
If you live in a destitute urban area of the United States then you likely know the distinct graupel-like sound of grandma Ginger’s cookie storms all too well. That’s why by 1960 people from areas of intense urban decay began to call these fantastic cookies “Soundsnaps.”
As her lone grandchild she took favor upon me and gave me her sugar snap recipe which I am excited to share with you here today. You might ask why would I share this prized family recipe? The reasons are two: 1.) I am a humanitarian and don’t see the sense in denying the slums and ghetto’s of the world the intense pleasure grandma Ginger’s scrumptious sugar snaps and the delightful Soundsnap they make; and 2.) I was born without arms or legs and though I have tried several times I have found that my condition prevents me from hang-gliding long distances. Since I can’t hang-glide, I can not continue grandma Ginger’s seven decade tradition of gentrification via inner city cookie showers.
If you can hang-glide and you can bake I implore you to take the recipe below and continue grandma Ginger’s legacy. Don’t let the Soundsnap die with grandma Ginger.
Without further ado here you go: Grandma Ginger’s Secret Soundsnap Recipe.

The Silkn Sensepil Laser Hair Removal system is a small gadget that you can use to remove bothersome hair from your body. It promises to make the process easy and long lasting. If you actually hate to shave, wax, or pluck, this product might just be for you. Here are the latest top reasons why you should give it a try.
Developers of the product say that the silk’n removes hair by using heat to inhibit the hair follicle cells. You use it by slowly rolling it along the area that you want to remove hair. It actually heats the hair follicle, and you can feel the heat, but it is not generally painful for most people.
The unit itself is small and light weight. It is about the same size as your cell phone. It is easy to use and light to hold. You roll it along your skin in the area where you want to get rid of hair. There are small heating lamps inside the device that actually do the heating. Some people say that your skin feels like your are in a tanning booth for about an hour after you use the device. The sensation wears off quickly. Other users say that it makes your skin tingle. Supposedly, the worst part of the treatment is the smell of the hair as it is heated.
Dermatologists report that removing hair with the silk’n is about the same as if you had professional laser treatments. The only difference is that professionally applied lasers cost more to remove the hair. The other similarity is that the hair may eventually grow back with both kinds of treatments. It just takes much longer than if you had shaved, for example.
Because the heat process is not permanent, you can expect that the hair will grow back slowly if you stop the heat treatments. The major difference is that six weeks after treatment you can expect to have about 75 percent less hair, and 12 weeks after treatment you can expect to have about 64 percent less hair. Generally, the heat treatments will keep more hair away for a longer period of time. That is the easiest way to think about it.
One great advantage reported is that the heat treatment helps people who really have trouble with shaving. For most, the heating process produces hair that is thinner when it grows back. Unlike shaving, where thick stubble often causes itching, rashes, and ingrown hairs, the heat process avoids all of that, and nasty nicks and cuts too.
You can also forget the huge mess of waxing. Silk’n is no mess at all and users say they would easily trade a painful waxing for a few minutes of warmed skin.
The unit costs about $400. This might seem pricey at first, but if you consider the cost of multiple waxing, or expensive laser treatments, then it seems more than reasonable. Some parts inside the device need to be cleaned and maintained. These include the lamps that deliver the heat to the hair follicles. You may actually need to replace these periodically. But, the price seems worth the effort when you think about actually having less hair for longer periods of time.
Dermatologists have said the device is safe to use at home, and useful too. They say it is effective at inhibiting the follicles as promised and works much like the expensive laser treatments that can cost thousands of dollars
The products developers and dermatologists agree , the results are what people are noticing. The Silk n Sensepil Laser Hair Remover seems to be the new must have for removing hair.
