Things Your Mouth tells you about your Health

 

 

 

 

Unknown-3

1.SHARP TOOTH PAIN – sharp pain in your teeth when you bite down or chew is reason to see your dentist immediately, as it could indicate dental decay or a cavity. For throbbing, aching pain, he says to wait three days if it still is a problem go see the dentist. 

            An ache that’s located in your top teeth may signal a sinus infection  as the sinuses are located just above the upper roots of your upper teeth. A dentist should be able to tell if your sinuses are infected with an x-ray, and a decongestant should help the pain ease.

2. BLEEDING GUMS –  It is not normal for your gums to bleed. If your gums bleed during brushing or flossing it could mean you have periodontal (gum) disease. Make a trip to your dentist as soon as possible for a thorough cleaning, and be sure to brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day, as gum disease can be extremely dangerous to the rest of the body. Bacteria that’s causing your gums to bleed can leave the mouth and enter the bloodstream, potentially affecting your heart by inflaming your arteries. people with pre-existing heart valve conditions, this can even lead to death.

It is  recommended that all pregnant women pay close attention to oral hygiene, ramp up their brushing and flossing regimen, limit sugar intake, and avoid major dental procedures that could in any way influence the baby’s growth and development

3. PERMANENTLY STAINED TEETH – Most yellow or brownish stains are superficial, usually caused by drinking coffee, tea, soda, red wine or smoking. Toothpaste that contains a derivative of hydrogen peroxide such as carbide peroxide will help whiten your teeth. Some Dentists have over the counter whiteners as well.

Dark black or brown spots on a tooth can signal a cavity, while red or blue marks that appear suddenly could mean the tooth has cracked to the pulp, where the nerves and blood vessels are located  in that case the tooth will have to be removed.

If you have white, yellow, or brown spots and grooves or pitting on the tooth’s surface, you could have celiac disease. About 90 percent of people with celiac have these problems with their teeth enamel.

Lastly, some stains may have occurred during childhood as a result of tetracycline antibiotics, and unfortunately bleach cannot make these go away. So go easy on the antibiotics for the children.

This also can cause headaches and damage to your jaw.

Try not to eat acid or spicy food as it could make the problem worse. A topic gel will usually help calm this down. 

Fluid-filled sores on your lips, those are cold sores. This is caused by caused by the herpes simplex virus. Avoid touch these while they are weeping as they are contagious. No kissing. It can take up to three weeks for them to heal.

635731736318276344-ThinkstockPhotos-179119810

This is a list of budget cuts I received by email. I personally thought it made very interesting reading. For some.

 

images-1

It was headed as Paul Ryan’s proposed budget cuts and savings in the next ten years. This is inaccurate. I checked Snopes to find this is article is only partially true.

The Spending Reduction Act of 2011 was sponsored by Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, not Paul Ryan.

Snopes summary.

‘ This itemized list of proposed budget cuts is real in the sense that it was encapsulated in a bill (H.R. 408) known as the Spending Reduction Act of 2011, a plan to reduce federal spending by $2.5 trillion through fiscal year 2021, and the specific amounts of savings to be gleaned by eliminating each item on the list come from a Republican Spending Committee report of January 2011. The Spending Reduction Act of 2011 was introduced to the House of Representatives in January 2011 and referred to committee, where it has remained ever since; it has not been passed or ever put to a vote.’
