Conditions that cause vomiting or acid reflux, such as the eating disorder bulimia, can damage tooth enamel.
Gingivitis, also generally called gum disease or periodontal disease, describes the events that begin with bacterial growth in your mouth and may end -- if not properly treated -- with tooth loss due to destruction of the tissue that surrounds your teeth. Tooth decay occurs when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are left on the teeth. Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is applied and hardened with a special light, ultimately "bonding" the material to the tooth to improve a person's smile.
Veneers (sometimes called porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of teeth, changing their color, shape, size or length.
Recontouring or reshaping is a procedure in which small amounts of tooth enamel are removed or shaped to change a tooth's length, shape, or surface. Braces can correct crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, and can improve the health and appearance of anyone's smile, adult or child.
Many teeth-whitening systems are available, including whitening toothpastes, over-the-counter gels, rinses, strips, and trays, and whitening agents obtained from a dentist. Amalgam tattoos occur when a tiny piece of amalgam filling embeds in your cheek or gum during or after dental work.
Also called aphthous ulcers, canker sores can show up on your tongue, cheek, and even your gums. Strep infection often produces a distinct pattern of white patches in the throat and on the tonsils, as well as red swollen tonsils. Small amounts of the candida fungus are present in the mouth, digestive tract, and skin of most healthy people and are normally kept in check by other bacteria and microorganisms in the body.
Tonsil stones (also called tonsilloliths) form when bacteria and mucus get trapped and calcify in your tonsils’ nooks and crannies, leaving a hard piece of matter and a bad taste in your throat. Cold sores (fever blisters) are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), passed on through contact with infected skin or body fluid. You can't cure HSV or a cold sore, but you can alleviate the pain it causes by avoiding spicy or acidic foods, applying ice, and using over-the-counter remedies. In DBT, one of the skill sets that we learn to help regulate our emotions is known as "PLEASE." These skills are so very important because if we neglect our physical health, we open ourselves up to being very vulnerable emotionally.
I especially needed to dig into these skills today because I've been very un-mindful about my body and physical health these past couple of days. Ruth HavelandMarch 30, 2013 at 3:17 AMI have difficulty around the exercise bit because of osteoarthritis.
Shannon George, former editor-in-chief of the trade magazine "Prime," holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from San Diego State University. Glucose, a substance obtained by eating carbohydrates such as cereal and pasta, is an important source of energy. Drinking alcohol can lower your blood sugar, particularly if you drink hard liquor such as vodka. While alcohol consumption can cause hypoglycemia in otherwise healthy people, individuals with diabetes who take insulin or other blood glucose-lowering medications are especially at risk for developing hypoglycemia from drinking alcohol. While a shot of vodka may temporarily lower blood glucose levels, this does not necessarily make it a healthy drink. People with elevated blood glucose levels due to diabetes or another cause should not use alcohol as a remedy to lower blood glucose.
This semi-translucent, hard, outer layer of the teeth has an important job: protecting teeth from the daily wear and tear of biting and chewing, as well as temperature extremes from hot or cold foods and drinks.

Over time, the constant clenching and friction can damage teeth and other health complications can arise.  Bruxism is often worst when you sleep -- that's when you can't control it.
Among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures, bonding can repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps, change the shape of teeth, or be used as a cosmetic alternative to silver amalgam fillings. The procedure is usually done to improve appearance by creating more harmony or balance in the look of the smile. The crown, when cemented into place, fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
Otherwise your tooth could be damaged further or become infected, possibly causing you to end up losing the tooth. Many people use this opportunity to replace silver amalgam fillings with tooth-colored composites. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Braces work by applying continuous pressure over a period of time to slowly move teeth in a specific direction. Brackets -- the parts that attach to each tooth -- can be clear, tooth-colored, or multi-colored. Porcelain veneers and crowns can correct crooked teeth, an uneven gum line, and other chipped, worn, and discolored dentistry. Teeth whitening is ideal for people who have healthy, unrestored teeth (no fillings) and gums. The silver in the amalgam leaches into your mouth's soft tissue, resulting in a blue-gray "stain" that looks a bit like a tiny tattoo. However, certain illnesses, stress, or medications can disturb the delicate balance, causing the fungus candida to grow out of control, causing thrush. They are not as common, but cold sores can appear anywhere on the face, including on the cheek, chin, or nose. I did some yoga stretches and then got outside and experienced Northern California fall temperatures of over 100 degrees.
I constantly have to move to stop stiffening up, but anything more than a short walk leaves me in agony. Her health interests include vegetarian nutrition, weight training, yoga and training for foot races. Drinking alcohol can cause hypoglycemia, or dangerously low blood glucose levels resulting in dizziness, disorientation, and even coma. When you have alcohol in your system, your body will process it before it breaks down carbohydrates or other nutrients.
While vodka doesn't contain carbs, all alcohol contains calories -- about 7 calories per gram, almost as much as fat -- and vodka is no exception. However, there are other simple actions you can take to accomplish a healthy decrease in blood glucose levels -- while avoiding a steep drop that could result in hypoglycemia. Purging can also trigger swelling in the mouth, throat, and salivary glands as well as bad breath.
The same goes for any condition that causes frequent vomiting, from gastrointestinal problems to eating disorders.
The bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque, which clings to the teeth. Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth's color or shape compared to crowns, but the process is not reversible.

Instead of individual crowns, some patients may have attachments on their implant that support a removable denture. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Cosmetic dentists can make a dramatic difference in a person's smile and overall oral health, but the work must be carefully planned. Amalgam tattoos pose no harm, but it's not likely an amalgam tattoo if the blue-gray spot grows or changes color. Triggers include hypersensitivity, infection, hormones, stress, and not getting enough of some vitamins. A weakened immune system, antibiotics, diabetes, or certain medications such as inhaled corticosteroids can give candida a chance to grow wild. Linehan's Skills Training Manual for Disordered Emotion Regulation (c) in press Guilford, it is also suggested that you stay away from foods that make you overly emotional.
Thus, your liver does not release glucose, the end-product of carbohydrate metabolization, while it is busy removing alcohol. Your doctor may recommend testing your blood glucose levels and eating some food before drinking alcohol with diabetes. Therefore, even a shot of vodka per day can lead to weight gain if you don't cut calories from other areas. For example, exercise helps people with diabetes use insulin more effectively, resulting in lower blood glucose levels. Anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders can also cause serious nutritional shortfalls that can affect the health of your teeth.
The American Dental Association asserts that the mercury in amalgam combines with other metals to render it safe for use in filling teeth. There are even "invisible" braces that use a series of clear, plastic molds to gradually move the teeth into alignment.
Persistent, severe canker sores can be treated with numbing creams or prescription treatments.
HSV-1 damages the skin as it reproduces itself, creating cold sores that last about a week. It was truly a labor of love and is a deep sharing of my walk with Borderline Personality Disorder and DBT thus far.
Besides slowing the processing of carbohydrates, having alcohol in your system also slows fat metabolization, which can also contribute to weight gain.
Weight loss, obtained as a result of exercise and healthy eating, can also lower blood glucose levels in people who are overweight. Making sure we keep our blood sugar balanced is just one of the things we need to do to maintain equilibrium in our bodies. Most people I connect with share that they suffer from insomnia, while I tend to majorly oversleep.
Unlike beer and wine, distilled liquors such as vodka do not contain any carbohydrates and are thus more likely to cause a drop in blood sugar, especially if you drink it straight or on an empty stomach. Furthermore, a shot of vodka may cause you to eat more than you otherwise would to compensate for its glucose-lowering effects.
