Modern Treatments Of Tooth DecayWritten by Charlene J. Nuble
Continued from page 1
The American Association for Dental Research and International Association for Dental Research have long been collaborating to disseminate ways of preventing tooth decay. They educate people of how proper oral hygiene methods of brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, regular dental checkup, sealant treatment, flossing, eating nutritious meals, and limiting in-between meals will always be indispensable.
Dental researchers have recently discovered how bacteria which attack teeth, stick themselves to enamel. This new information could bring significant benefits to increase public's knowledge on eliminating harmful effects of tooth decay-causing bacteria (Streptococcus mutans). Aside from this, they are also in process of developing vaccines against tooth decay and discovering other new methods on targeting and killing decay-causing bacteria.
Other tooth decay treatments, i.e., dental implants, Healozone gas blast (blast that triggers saliva to fix teeth naturally), and squirting genetically modified bacteria that will not produce decay acid, are also being developed. The use of fiber optics and fluorescence methodologies is also being considered to possibly detect tooth decay much sooner than x-rays and visual inspections can.
These advancements in treating dental cavities are evidences of increasing attention to oral care. But relying mainly on these discoveries does not guarantee complete disappearance of tooth decay from list of most common global health problems. Further improvements on tooth decay treatment entails expanded dental care education, early interception of poor oral hygiene habits, greater parental involvement in children's dental health and appreciating how priceless a confident smile is.

Exercise Equipments That Suit Your Fitness GoalsWritten by Charlene J. Nuble
Continued from page 1
Go Large. Go to a large gym and try out various pieces of exercise equipment, including cardio machines, weight machines, and free weights. Just a piece of advice, don't do this all of this testing activity in just one day. Trust me. Keep weights very light - you just want to get a 'feel' for each piece of exercise equipment so you can figure out which ones you like best. Make a list of your top 5 pieces.
What's in Store. If there's a local fitness equipment store in your neighborhood, by all means, do visit that store. Ever clicked on your remote control and crossed upon a channel selling things from Abflex to miraculous necklaces? This might be one of best time to finally get something from your drooling over those ladies doing workouts. See what exercise equipment they are offering to obtain those washboard abs and tight tushies, if that's what you're planning to morph your into. Oops, don't forget to compare prices.
Financial Fitness. After all that trust-earning fuss, note-taking, drooling and renovations you actually succumbed to, it's time to check on your dough. Can you afford those exercise equipment? If not, Yoga or Pilates tapes could come in handy.
I told you this could get really tricky. Exercise equipments stuck on your basement is a lot better than having nothing to turn to if you finally felt like exercising with an equipment, right?
