What to Do In a Dental Emergency

Categories: Lifestyle, , Leave a comment

You could find yourself in a dental emergency any time of the day or night, and your regular dentist may not be open when you experience your problem. If this is the case, the first thing to do is to ensure that you do not panic and remain as calm as possible. You can find a lot of advice on the qld.gov.au website covering a range of different dental emergencies such as a knocked out tooth or a toothache, and below is some information on the most common problems that people experience.

Remain Clam and Assess The Situation

If the injured party is a member of your family or someone that you know the first thing to do is keep calm. You will want to assess the situation and decide whether the situation warrants calling the emergency services, which may be prudent if the person has received a blow which has knocked out a tooth.

Handle the Tooth Correctly

If there has been a tooth knocked out, then you will want to collect this and visit your Gold Coast dentist as quickly as you can, no matter if it is an adult or a baby tooth. When you handle the tooth, you will want to pick it up only by the top of the tooth, which is the crown, and make sure that you do not touch the roots. Place the tooth in a clean container and pour milk over the tooth which will help to preserve it, and make the injured person rinse their mouth with warm saltwater to help keep the wound clean and get rid of any debris. You will also want to get the person to an emergency dentist as quickly as you can so that they can look at the situation and treat it accordingly, hopefully saving the tooth.

Dealing With A Cracked Tooth

A cracked tooth may not be as urgent, but you will still want to deal with the situation effectively to prevent any complications. Assess if the person has any other injuries and call the emergency services if you need to, collect the fragments of the tooth if possible and place these in a clean container with milk. Mix some salt with warm water and have them rinse out their mouths to clean any debris. An ice pack held to the injured jaw will help to reduce the swelling in the mouth, and if there is a pain, there are many different products that you can purchase over the counter at your local pharmacy that do not require a prescription. Although you may not need to visit an out-of-hours dentist for this type of injury, you will want to ensure that you visit the dentist the following day to get it looked at and repaired.

Wellness & Contraception: What You Need to Know

Wellness & Contraception: What You need to Know
Categories: Press Release, , 1 Comment

Wellness & Contraception, how much do you know about these? Despite the availability and accessibility of different types of contraceptive methods. accelerating the acceptance and utilization is still hindered by misconceptions and lack of knowledge on modern contraception. Up to date, there are still many that are shy to talk about these topics, WE SHOULD NOT! As the government intensifies the implementation of its family planning program in the next four years, much more needs to be done to educate Filipinos about the importance of reproductive health and to correct the misconceptions about modern contraception.

TRENDING: Hair Regrow: The Root Problem

“Following the launch of the first World Contraception Day Philippines in 2018. we want to continue the conversation to empower and educate Filipino women and coup|es to make informed choices about their reproductive and sexual health,” shared by Junll Kim, Country Division Head, Bayer Pharmaceuticals.

Wellness & Contraception: The Stigma on Birth Control

Via Antonio, actress and comedian, talked about her own experiences in pursuit of better reproductive and physical health. “In this day and age, reproductive health remains to be a taboo topic, even among women. Many are using contraception for various reasons yet no one is openly talking about it. The stigma on birth control is alive.” Dr. Amity Casurao-Trono, Obstetrician and Gynecologist at St. Luke’s Medical Center 0C and Rizal Medical Center, shed light on the myths and misconceptions about modern contraceptives during her “Pillowtalk” session this afternoon.

Wellness & Contraception: Making the Better Choice

Oral contraceptives or the pill remains to be one of the most effective and preferred form of modern contraception among Filipinas because they are convenient, non-invasive and reversible. It comes in two types -the combined oral contraceptive (COC) pill, which contains both progestin and estrogen hormones and the Mini Pill or progestin-only pill (POP).

Most Commonly Used Contraception

Remember: Progestin is the main contraceptive ingredient that prevents ovulation, thins out the uterine lining and thickens cervical mucus such that sperm cannot pass through. Ethinyl estradiol, the synthetic female hormone, stabilizes the endometrium and enhances the action of progestin.

Combined Oral Contraceptive Pills: THE MYTHS

Wellness & Contraception:  The Myths

Pills do not cause birth defects: No adverse effects were observed when COCs were accidentally taken during early pregnancy. Past COC use is not associated with an increase in spontaneous abortions.

Pills do not increase cancer risk:
Studies have not established strong and direct links between breast cancer and pill usage. In fact, the risk of cancer lowered with CDC use. It reduces risks for certain cancers such as ovarian cancer (~40% lower), endometrial cancer (~50% lower) and colorectal cancer (~20% lower)”. However, it does not protect from sexually transmitted diseases.

Pills do not make you infertile: 21% of women get pregnant after one month of stopping taking 0005 and 79% get pregnant after one year of stopping.“

Pills, depending on the formulation and indication, also treat a variety of hormone-related conditions and imbalances such as hyperandrogenism, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a severe and debilitating form of PMS. Over 88% of women receiving COCs report no adverse effects.

Aside from preventing unintended pregnancies, selected COC pills offer added benefits beyond contraception such as:

  • Reducing estrogen-related fluid retention and bloating because of its antimineralocorticoid property.
  • It regulates hormonal problems such as acne, facial hair and hair loss due to its anti-androgenic quality.

Some Common Side Effects

Like any other medication, it comes with some common side effects such as: Nausea, breast tenderness and headache, which are tolerable. Some contraindications to taking the pills are presence or history of Deep Vein Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism, Myocardial Infarction, Ischemic stroke, Transient ischemic attack, angina, Severe liver disease, DM with vascular disease, Migraine with aura, Breast cancer, Undiagnosed vaginal bleeding, known or suspected pregnancy, smokers > 35 y/o, severe lipid disease and uncontrolled hypertension.

Dr. Casurao-Trono reiterates that, “It’s time for women to take a more active stance in taking control of their reproductive and sexual health. We should be able to normalize these discussions, without the fear of being shamed or embarrassed.”

World-Class Natural Remedy for Filipina Beauty & Wellness Expert’s Crowning Glory

Hair loss is a concern for both men and women. It can have a devastating effect to anyone who experiences it. According to Web MD, the average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair and loses up to 100 of them a day, which is normal. As people age, their rate of hair growth slows, and they can experience losing more than hundreds of strands which is quite alarming. So what can you do to prevent it?

For beauty and wellness expert, Cory Quirino, embracing wellness is the first step to help improve the hair’s condition and make people look younger. “If you choose to have a wellness lifestyle, then expect wonderful changes such as radiant skin, energy, and a general sense of well-being,” she emphasizes. “In time, you will realize that you have successfully delayed the aging process.” The beauty and wellness expert says that choosing wellness as a lifestyle includes eating nutritious food, exercising, getting a good sleep, drinking generous amounts of water, managing stress, getting enough sunshine, and above all, staying positive. On top of a daily healthy regimen, a supplement is necessary to maintain a healthy hair and scalp. Many people opt to use chemical-based products. But for her, the use of natural products is a must and the best solution for hair loss.

Choose Natural, choose Novuhair

“There are hair treatment products in the market today that claim to be effective but their ingredients could contain chemicals that may prove harmful with long-term use,” she enthuses. “Choose natural. Say NO to harsh chemicals and let nature do the makeover,” she emphasizes. Natural ingredients such as virgin coconut oil (VCO) and Aloe Vera are loaded with beneficial properties, which boost the health of the scalp and hair. These and much more natural herbs and essential oils can be found in NOVUHAIR, a topical scalp lotion with 19 natural ingredients that work in synergy to help prevent hair loss, which the beauty and wellness expert approves of.

“Even if I have been blessed with thick hair, I know that it has to be cared for,” she maintains. “I use NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion once daily in the evening before bedtime. Next morning, I apply it on my scalp again, then a shampoo after 30 minutes. Those who wish to further thicken the hair, it is a must to also use the shampoo and conditioner daily.”  Eventually, she noticed impressive effects after using this breakthrough product: significant lessening of hair fall, abundant growth of tress, and the return of locks’ luster.

Apart from being effective, it’s a very safe solution, too. A local clinical study has proven that NOVUHAIR has no adverse side effects with continuous use. Moreover, NOVUHAIR is not just for those who experience hair loss. Younger people, especially the millennials, can use it for maintenance or prevention if hair loss runs in the family. Cory recommends NOVUHAIR to everyone, especially to those who want to maintain their hair the best way they can. For her, this globally-competitive natural product answers the needs of a discriminating, health-conscious public.

Who Is Cory Quirino

Born on August 11, the granddaughter of the late Philippine President Elpidio Quirino is an author, and television and radio host. She has been a strong advocate for natural health, beauty, and wellness for more than two decades. “Twenty years ago, it was as simple a goal as weight loss. But when I saw the dramatic effect it had on my vitality and complexion, I knew that this was the good path to take. For those who wish the same things I wanted then, this would be just as easy to embrace,” Cory recalls.

She wrote a series of best-seller books entitled “Forever Young”, which feature beauty and health tips as well as her own workout programs. Likewise, she also made a fitness video called “Cory Quirino’s Celebrity Workout for Beginners”. For her, living in the 21st century has its challenges. She says: “The best way to live long and be well is to live a natural life.” Truly, for a natural woman like Cory, her crowning glory deserves nothing but a world-class natural remedy that is NOVUHAIR.
