Prospective study on the effect of smoking and nicotine substitution on leucocyte blood counts and relation between blood leucocytes and lung function. (1/126)

BACKGROUND: The influence of smoking and of nicotine substitution on the counts of total blood leucocytes and leucocyte subsets and the relations between the counts and lung function was investigated. METHODS: The study was a combined cross sectional and prospective study of 298 smokers and 136 non-smokers. Forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) was measured in all participants at baseline and six months after quitting smoking in 160 ex-smokers (quitters) and 138 persons with smoking relapse. Blood samples were obtained from all participants at baseline and from 160 quitters and 30 continuing smokers two, six, 12, and 26 weeks after smoking cessation and from 92 quitters one year after the cessation of smoking. RESULTS: Blood leucocyte counts and leucocyte subsets were all higher in smokers than in non-smokers. In cigarette smokers total leucocyte, neutrophil, and lymphocyte blood counts showed a dose dependent relationship with the daily cigarette consumption and pack years consumption. In smokers the neutrophil blood count was independently associated negatively with FEV1 residuals. After quitting smoking total leucocyte, neutrophil, and lymphocyte blood counts decreased during the first 26 weeks and after one year lymphocyte blood counts were higher than in non-smokers. In quitters substituted with nicotine chewing gum (2 mg) the accumulated number of pieces of chewing gum used in the 12 weeks had an inverse relationship with the decrease in the total lymphocyte blood count at 12 weeks after smoking cessation. CONCLUSIONS: Leucocyte blood counts are raised in smokers and decrease after smoking cessation. Neutrophil blood counts had an inverse relationship with lung function and nicotine may increase lymphocyte blood counts in smokers.  (+info)

Open randomised trial of intermittent very low energy diet together with nicotine gum for stopping smoking in women who gained weight in previous attempts to quit. (2/126)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether attempts to prevent weight gain will increase success rates for stopping smoking. DESIGN: 16 week, open, randomised study with 1 year follow up. SETTING: Obesity unit. SUBJECTS: 287 female smokers who had quit smoking before but started again because of weight concerns. INTERVENTION: Combination of a standard smoking cessation programme with nicotine gum and a behavioural weight control programme including a very low energy diet. A control group was treated with the identical programme but without the diet. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Sustained cessation of smoking. RESULTS: After 16 weeks, 68/137 (50%) women had stopped smoking in the diet group versus 53/150 (35%) in the control group (P=0.01). Among these women, weight fell by mean 2.1 (95% confidence interval 2.9 to 1.3) kg in the diet group but increased by 1.6 (0.9 to 2.3) kg in the control group (P<0.001). After 1 year the success rates in the diet and control groups were 38/137 (28%) and 24/150 (16%) respectively (P<0.05), but there was no statistical difference in weight gain. CONCLUSIONS: Combining the smoking cessation programme with an intervention to control weight helped women to stop smoking and control weight.  (+info)

Effects of a return chewing gum/packaging material mixture on in situ disappearance and on feed intake, nutrient digestibility, and ruminal characteristics of growing steers. (3/126)

In situ and in vivo digestibility experiments were conducted to determine the acceptability, digestibility, and safety of a return chewing gum/packaging (G/P) material mixture when fed to steers. In the in situ experiment, both ruminal and intestinal disappearances were measured. Two ruminally and duodenally cannulated steers, which were given free access to alfalfa hay (AH), were used in this study. Duplicate Dacron bags containing the G/P were incubated in the rumen for 0, 3, 6, 12, 24, and 48 h. After ruminal incubation, the 12-, 24-, and 48-h bags were placed in the duodenum and collected in the feces to determine intestinal disappearance. In situ ruminal DM disappearance was greater than 70% for all substrates tested at 0 h, indicating high solubility of the substrates in water, and began to reach a plateau after 12 h of incubation. Intestinal in situ disappearance was not different (P>.25) from zero. In the digestion trial, four ruminally cannulated steers (337+/-21.3 kg BW; mean +/- SD) were used in a 4x4 Latin square design with the following treatments: 0) 50% corn (C), 50% AH; 10) 45% C, 45% AH, 10% G/P; 20) 40% C, 40% AH, 20% G/P; 30) 35% C, 35% AH, 30% G/P. Steers fed G/P-containing diets had greater (P<.01) DMI than the control steers. Increasing the G/P resulted in a linear (P<.05) increase in DMI. Apparent DM digestibility tended to be higher (P<.10) for the G/P-containing diets than for the control. A quadratic effect (P<.05) on digestible DMI was observed, with greater (P<.01) digestible DMI values for G/P-containing diets (4.8 vs. 5.8 kg/d). Digestible organic matter and total nonstructural carbohydrate intakes followed trends similar to those of DM. Apparent aluminum digestibility of G/P-containing diets was not different (P>.13) from zero. The level of G/P in the diet had no effect (P>.2) on total VFA concentration or ruminal pH. There was a linear decrease (P<.01) in the molar percentage of isobutyrate and isovalerate in addition to a linear increase (P<.01) in butyrate and valerate with increasing levels of G/P. There was a quadratic effect (P<.01) on molar proportions of acetate and propionate and on the acetate:propionate ratio. Results of both experiments suggest that G/P may be fed to safely replace up to 30% of corn-alfalfa hay diets for growing steers with advantages in improving DMI and digestibility.  (+info)

Chewing gum--facts and fiction: a review of gum-chewing and oral health. (4/126)

The world market for chewing gum is estimated to be 560,000 tons per year, representing approximately US $5 billion. Some 374 billion pieces of chewing gum are sold worldwide every year, representing 187 billion hours of gum-chewing if each piece of gum is chewed for 30 minutes. Chewing gum can thus be expected to have an influence on oral health. The labeling of sugar-substituted chewing gum as "safe for teeth" or "tooth-friendly" has been proven beneficial to the informed consumer. Such claims are allowed for products having been shown in vivo not to depress plaque pH below 5.7, neither during nor for 30 minutes after the consumption. However, various chewing gum manufacturers have recently begun to make distinct health promotion claims, suggesting, e.g., reparative action or substitution for mechanical hygiene. The aim of this critical review--covering the effects of the physical properties of chewing gum and those of different ingredients both of conventional and of functional chewing gum--is to provide a set of guidelines for the interpretation of such claims and to assist oral health care professionals in counseling patients.  (+info)

Small taxes on soft drinks and snack foods to promote health. (5/126)

Health officials often wish to sponsor nutrition and other health promotion programs but are hampered by lack of funding. One source of funding is suggested by the fact that 18 states and 1 major city levy special taxes on soft drinks, candy, chewing gum, or snack foods. The tax rates may be too small to affect sales, but in some jurisdictions, the revenues generated are substantial. Nationally, about $1 billion is raised annually from these taxes. The authors propose that state and local governments levy taxes on foods of low nutritional value and use the revenues to fund health promotion programs.  (+info)

Adsorption of oral bacteria to porous type calcium carbonate. (6/126)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the adsorption of [3H]-thymidine labeled oral microorganisms to porous type calcium carbonate (PCC) beads in a buffer containing human parotid saliva and to PCC combined chewing gum sheets. Adsorption rates of Streptococcus sobrinus B13 and 6715, Streptococcus mutans MT8148R and Actinomyces naeslundii T14V with PCC were significantly higher than those with calcium carbonate (CC) beads (p < 0.01). Adsorption rates of S. sobrinus, S. mutans and A. naeslundii with PCC combined chewing gum were significantly higher than those with CC combined chewing gum (p < 0.01). The present results suggested that the chewing gum containing PCC may be able to exclude oral bacteria, including cariogenic and periodontopathic bacteria, for prevention of dental caries and periodontal disease.  (+info)

The impact of behavioral technology on dental caries. (7/126)

Models of self-regulation of patient adherence to specific health promotion recommendations by professionals are available and have been shown effective in changing behavior. However, it is a fundamental misspecification of the caries prevention problem to look to techniques that affect the regulation of individual behavior to directly impact dental caries. Behavioral techniques are used to enhance the probability an individual will initiate, increase, or maintain the use of established caries reduction/control strategies or cease or decrease behaviors that increase caries. Behavioral techniques can also be used to affect parental behavior in a cascade of effects that can eventually lead to healthier children. Studies are needed where behaviorally oriented caries prevention actions are thought of as manipulating self-regulatory behavior and the focus of action is either on the individual or on another, such as a parent. A third category of studies should center on provider competency. Studies are recommended in each of these areas.  (+info)

The effect of non-cariogenic sweeteners on the prevention of dental caries: a review of the evidence. (8/126)

The role of sugar substitutes such as xylitol and sorbitol in the prevention of dental caries has been investigated in several clinical studies. The purpose of this report is to review the current published evidence regarding the relationship between sugar substitutes and dental caries. A literature search was conducted using MEDLINE and EMBASE and included studies published from 1966 to 2001. Studies that included human subjects and were published in English were included in this review. A total of fourteen clinical studies were reviewed that evaluated the effect of sorbitol or xylitol or the combination of both sugar substitutes on the incidence of dental caries. Most of the reports were of studies conducted with children outside of the United States. These studies demonstrated a consistent decrease in dental caries, ranging from 30 to 60 percent, among subjects using sugar substitutes as compared to subjects in a control group. These caries rate reductions were observed in subjects using xylitol or sorbitol as the sugar substitute in chewing gum or toothpaste. The highest caries reductions were observed in subjects using xylitol. These findings suggest that the replacement of sucrose with sorbitol and xylitol may significantly decrease the incidence of dental caries.  (+info)

A Take A Look At Gum disease And Periodontal Disease. Gums and teeth, also referred to as gum disease, is really a serious condition which will normally lead to loss of tooth. With adults, gum disease and periodontal disease are the most typical types of gums and teeth. To avoid both kinds of gums and teeth, it is best to brush the teeth and take away just as much plaque as you possibly can. Should you permit the plaque to develop, gums and teeth will usually function as the result.. Gum disease is called inflammation within the tissues from the gums. If plaque and tartar develop across the gumline, the gums will ultimately get inflamed and inflammed. With time, the gums can get very tender and begin to look puffy. Whenever you brush the teeth, youll observe that your gums have grown to be very sore and theyll begin to bleed with virtually no pressure. If you see bloodstream kids, then chances are you have gum disease. When you brush the teeth or floss, there should not be any manifestation of ...

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is an infection of the gums that surround your teeth. It is one of the primary causes of tooth loss in adults. Because it is virtually pain-free, you may not know you have gum disease. Thats why its so important to schedule regular checkups at our North Seattle dental office. Dr. Muy Sun or a member of our hygiene team will check for signs of periodontal disease by measuring the space between your teeth and gums; if gum disease is present, well help you decide the best course of treatment.. Gum disease forms just below the gum line and creates small pockets that separate the gums from the teeth. It has two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease, when the gums become red and swollen, and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is treatable and can usually be eliminated by daily brushing and flossing. If left untreated, gingivitis will advance into periodontitis, and the gums and bone that support the teeth will ...
Why do gums recede? What makes them recede and create more problems inside the mouth? Flossing or brushing very hard could tear away tissues and hurt your gums, always use a soft-bristled toothbrush when brushing your teeth. Another cause for receding gums is what we call "genetic inheritance". If your parents have the characteristics of receding gums, you might as well have them. Abnormality with the alignment of your teeth is one factor and if the teeth are not aligned properly, receding gums could occur.. Bruxism or grinding of the teeth can be another cause of receding gums and using a mouth guard could be an answer. Traumatic injuries could also affect receding gums and last but not the least poor oral hygiene that will lead to Periodontal disease. These are the causes of receding gums and you can do something about it to prevent receding gums. Starting a good oral habit everyday and following the oral hygienists advice will give you a healthy mouth, teeth and gums.. Receding gums ...
What is gum disease?Gum disease is an infection of the tissues and bones that surround and support the teeth. It is also called periodontal disease.There are two types of gum disease: Gingivitis (say jin-juh-VY-tus) is mild gum disease that affects only the gums, the soft tissue that surrounds the teeth.Periodontitis (say pair-ee-oh-don-TY-tus) is more severe. It spreads below the gums to damage the tissues and bone that support the teeth.What causes gum disease?Gum disease is caused by the growth of germs called bacteria on the teeth and gums. Bacteria are present in plaque, a clear, sticky substance your mouth produces. The bacteria in plaque feed on sugars in the foods you eat and drink and make poisons (toxins) and other chemicals. The toxins irritate your gums, causing them to swell and bleed easily when brushed.In time, plaque can harden into a buildup called calculus or tartar. This irritates the gums even more and causes them to pull away from your teeth. Things that make you

Gum recession is a serious oral condition in which the gums shrink back or "recede" from their normal position around the teeth. Because theyre the primary protection for teeth below the enamel, this can expose the teeth to infection or cause painful sensitivity. And receded gums most certainly can diminish your smile.. But there are preventive measures you can adopt that might help you avoid this unpleasant condition. Here are 4 things you can do to minimize your risk for gum recession.. Practice daily oral hygiene. The main cause for recession is gum disease, a bacterial infection that weakens gum attachment to teeth. Gum disease usually arises from dental plaque, a thin bacterial film that builds up on teeth. Removing it every day with brushing and flossing minimizes the risk of gum disease and gum recession.. But dont overdo it. Although brushing is key to keeping your mouth healthy, too hard and too often can damage your gums and lead to recession. A little "elbow grease" may be ...
Periodontal (gum) disease causes more than simple gum swelling-this bacterial infection can harm and destroy your teeths supporting structures, including the bone. Its aggressiveness sometimes requires equally aggressive treatment.. Gum disease usually begins with dental plaque, a thin film of bacteria and food particles on tooth and gum surfaces. Without proper oral hygiene plaque builds up with large populations of bacteria that can trigger an infection.. The growth of this disease is often "silent," meaning it may initially show no symptoms. If it does, it will normally be reddened, swollen and/or bleeding gums, and sometimes pain. A loose tooth is often a late sign the disease has severely damaged the gum ligaments and supporting bone, making tooth loss a distinct possibility.. If youre diagnosed with gum disease, there is one primary treatment strategy-remove all detected plaque and calculus (tartar) from tooth and gum surfaces. This can take several sessions because as the gums begin ...
Theres no question that white gums can be an unsightly problem. In most cases, however, they are not serious. Still, if they affect you, you certainly want to rid yourself of the problem.. The first step to treating white gums is determining their cause. White gums can be a sign of infection in the body, can be a symptom of thrush or can simply be a side effect of using harsh tooth whitening products or toothpaste.. Gums that have splotchy white areas with no raised areas or sores often mean an infection somewhere within your body. The white gums are the result of white blood cells working hard to rid your body of the infection. In order to treat the white gums in this case, youll need to get rid of the underlying infection. Keep in mind that if you have severe gingivitis or periodontal disease, that infection might be right in the gums themselves. Look for bleeding, soreness and pus pockets in the gums.. If your gums have raised white splotches that may bleed when disturbed, you may have ...
The condition that most often underlies most gum recession problems is periodontitis, a genetic inflammatory disease condition associated infection caused by certain kinds of oral bacteria (periodontal pathogens). An aberration or glitch in the immune system leads to destruction of the connective tissue (gums and bone) supporting the teeth by ones own inflammatory process. White blood cells, instead of aiding the immune system to destroy infection-causing bacteria, undergo a process that results in the destruction of bone and gums. This process affects the gum line and causes the gums to recede. When the gums recede, the roots of the teeth are exposed. When the protective surface of the roots, called cementum, is worn away by over-brushing or decay, the teeth will become hypersensitive to cold and touch.. What can be done to restore the gum line to its normal position? First of all, the possible causes of gum recession must be dealt with. Proper brushing habits must be taught and learned. Bite ...
I want my gums to stop bleeding", this thought is far more common than you might think. Given that bleeding gums is a classic symptom of gum disease and given that about 75% of people suffer from some form of gum disease (according to statistics), it is easy to understand that many people feel the same way.. This is the first point, you are definitely not alone. The only difference is that many people do not realize that they have a problem in the first place. In a sense, you now do.. It is very unnatural for healthy gum tissue to bleed. The only exception might be trauma of some sort. However, many people see their gums bleed upon brushing and flossing and they believe that it is normal. Therefore, it may never occur to them that they have a real problem.. Another point of ignorance is the belief that gum disease only happens to you when you are over 30. The truth is you can be six years old and have gum disease. The reality is that people typically begin to see the effects of gum disease ...

If you think gum disease only happens to the other guy (or gal), think again. If youre over 30 you have a 50-50 chance for an infection. After 65 the risk climbs to 70 percent.. Fortunately, we can effectively treat most cases of gum disease. But depending on its severity, treatment can involve numerous intensive sessions and possible surgery to bring the disease under control. So, why not prevent gum disease before it happens?. First, though, lets look at how gum disease most often begins-with dental plaque, a thin film of bacteria and food particles built up on teeth and gum surfaces. If plaque isnt consistently removed through daily brushing and flossing, it doesnt take long-just a few days-for the bacteria to infect the gums.. While its not always easy to detect gum disease early on, there are signs to look for like red, swollen and tender gums that bleed easily when you brush or floss, and bad breath or taste. The infection is usually more advanced if you notice pus-filled areas around ...
In Brandis case, she was an excellent candidate for laser gum reshaping to remove that excess gum tissue that was hiding half of her lower front teeth. In the top photo you can see how much excess gums tissue she had and how small her lower teeth appeared. When we explained to Brandi that this could be easily corrected with the dental gum laser she was excited and anxious to have Dr. Huefner do the laser treatment. Dr. Huefner gave Brandi a short acting local anesthetic that would numb her gums for approximately 15-20 minutes. This short acting local anesthetic would give Dr. Huefner enough time to complete the laser reshaping without causing Brandi any pain or discomfort.. Brandi wanted to know whether there would be a lot of bleeding of her gums during the procedure and if she would be getting stitches. Happily the answer was no to both of these questions. The laser actually stops the gums from bleeding and the dental laser procedure never requires stitches in the gums!. In the second photo ...
In Brandis case, she was an excellent candidate for laser gum reshaping to remove that excess gum tissue that was hiding half of her lower front teeth. In the top photo you can see how much excess gums tissue she had and how small her lower teeth appeared. When we explained to Brandi that this could be easily corrected with the dental gum laser she was excited and anxious to have Dr. Huefner do the laser treatment. Dr. Huefner gave Brandi a short acting local anesthetic that would numb her gums for approximately 15-20 minutes. This short acting local anesthetic would give Dr. Huefner enough time to complete the laser reshaping without causing Brandi any pain or discomfort..

Do you have questions about Periodontal Gum Disease? Do you wonder how gum surgery can help you live a more fulfilled, happy life? We know you have concerns, and we want to make you as informed as possible in order to make the best decisions that are right for you. Were here for you with your journey towards better oral health.. What is Gum Disease?. Gum disease, in a mild form is referred to as "Gingivitis" and its symptoms include gums that are red, swollen and bleed easily. Pain is not usually associated with gingivitis, except if you brush or floss the inflamed tissue. Gingivitis is treatable with better oral hygiene at home as well as professional care. The second more serious form of gum disease is periodontitis.. Periodontitis occurs when plaque turns to tartar and spreads below the gum line. The toxins from the bacteria that exists within the plaque which causes further irritation to the gums. Your bodys natural self-defense mechanisms kick in stimulating an inflammatory response and ...
Gingivitis is a mild form of the disease, caused by bacteria irritating the gums. Plaque, a sticky film that forms on the teeth and gums hardens into calculus, which forms a rough surface along the gum line on which more plaque accumulates, causing more irritation and swelling. Although this usually results in sore, bleeding gums, bad breath and spaces between the gums and teeth (pockets) there is no damage to the bone at this point.. Periodontitis occurs when plaque and possibly calculus are found below the gum line. The gums are irritated and bright red. They bleed easily and shrink back, or recede. The ligaments that attach the tooth roots to the bone break down and the gum detaches and pulls away from the teeth. The pockets deepen and fill with more bacteria. The damage to ligaments and bone results in loose teeth.. ...
The condition that most often underlies most gum recession problems is periodontitis, a genetic inflammatory disease condition associated infection caused by certain kinds of oral bacteria (periodontal pathogens). An aberration or glitch in the immune system leads to destruction of the connective tissue (gums and bone) supporting the teeth by ones own inflammatory process. White blood cells, instead of aiding the immune system to destroy infection-causing bacteria, undergo a process that results in the destruction of bone and gums. This process affects the gum line and causes the gums to recede. When the gums recede, the roots of the teeth are exposed. When the protective surface of the roots, called cementum, is worn away by over-brushing or decay, the teeth will become hypersensitive to cold and touch.. What can be done to restore the gum line to its normal position? First of all, the possible causes of gum recession must be dealt with. Proper brushing habits must be taught and learned. Bite ...
NEW Advanced Defence Gum Treatment cuts gingival bleeding by 50.9% (p,0.001) in just 4 weeks when used after brushing1.. Johnson & Johnson is pleased to announce the launch of Advanced Defence Gum Treatment, the newest mouthwash in a range that addresses specific oral care conditions.. Plaque is the major cause of gum disease2,3.. Used as an adjunct to mechanical cleaning, Advanced Defence Gum Treatment helps to treat gum disease, as it is formulated with LAE (Ethyl Lauroyl Arginate) technology, which forms a physical coating on the pellicle to prevent bacteria from accessing and attaching to the pellicle proteins, interrupting plaque biofilm formation and maturation1.. An alternative to chlorhexidine-based remedies, this twice-daily mouthwash is clinically proven to treat gum disease as an adjunct to mechanical cleaning. It has been shown to significantly reduce gum disease at twoweeks (p,0.001) and cut gingival bleeding by 50.9% (p,0.001) in just 4 weeks1.. In addition, Advanced Defence Gum ...
A coated chewing gum includes a gum center containing a water-insoluble gum base and a first active material, and a shell coated around the gum center, with the shell containing a second active material. The coated chewing gum may be made by homogeneously dispersing a first active material in a gum base to form a gum mass; forming discrete masses of the gum mass; and coating the discrete masses with a coating composition containing a second active material.
Research is reviewed on the effects of chewing gum on stress, alertness and cognition (including findings from cognitive neuroscience). There is some evidence that chewing gum reduces chronic stress, while effects on acute stress have been less clear in an experimental context. A robust effect of gum chewing on subjective alertness has been observed. However, findings on chewing gum and cognition have been more variable. It is suggested that length of chewing may be a key moderator in chewing gum effects. Possible mechanisms are highlighted for effects of chewing gum on stress and cognition, and suggestions for future research are made.. ...
During high school, my best friend started to chew gum during class in order to eat less in breaks. Well, I never found out if what she was doing actually worked or not. However, she believed that with exercise and skipping some meals she will loose weight faster. I noticed that in a couple of months she did not loose weight, but I was intrigued about the effects of chewing gum and why do people think of it as a solution to overweight. So the question is, is chewing gum an effective method to loose appetite?. Does gum make people loose their appetite? Reverse causation needs to be eliminated due to the time factor. What I mean by this, is that the hypothesis could not be tested because time needs to pass in order to notice whether chewing gum has an effect on hunger or not. Furthermore, is there a third variable that influences both gum intake and food intake? But there is always a possibility that it is due to chance as well.. I decided to do some research about the effects of gum and found out ...
The physical act of chewing tends to increase salivary flow. If you chew sugarless gum after eating, the increased salivary flow can help neutralize and wash away the acids that are produced when food is broken down by the bacteria in plaque on your teeth. Over time, acid can break down tooth enamel, creating the conditions for decay. Increased saliva flow also carries with it more calcium and phosphate to help strengthen tooth enamel. Clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay. In the future, look for chewing gum that delivers a variety of therapeutic agents that could provide additional benefits to those provided by the ability of gum to stimulate saliva flow. For instance, some gum might contain active agents that could enhance the gums ability to remineralize teeth and reduce decay, or enable gum to help reduce plaque and gingivitis." -American Dental Association ...
Ever since we were old enough to have candy, we have been more than delighted by the offer of a stick of gum. As kids, it was a sweet treat to chew on as we challenged each other to blow the biggest bubbles. As adults, we pop in a stick when we have a hot date and want fresh breath. But regardless of our ages, chewing gum has been a go-to candy staple weve loved as far back as the Neolithic period. Yes, the actual Neolithic period! It isnt exactly what we now know as chewing gum. Originally, it was made from trees and thought to have medicinal benefits. Today, chewing gum is more of a confection than it is a medicine. So is it still good for us? While sugar is never going to be considered an all-around good thing for us, youd be surprised just how good gum actually is.. Of all of the reasons we decide to chew a stick of gum, fresh breath is one of the main ones. Something that may surprise you is the fact that lots of gum contains natural oils that fight bad breath causing germs, instead of ...
The first thing we do when we have gum problems is visit our dentist - if we can afford it - or have some insurance.. We usually trust our dentist to know best because he/she is qualified and it feels like the safest thing to do.. Dentists (oftentimes using a Periodontist) will suggest deep cleaning or gum surgery to either scrape your teeth down under the gum-line, or to attempt a repair of damage to your gums.. This can involve cutting flaps in your gums or taking tissue from elsewhere in your mouth and patching the damaged areas.. Ouch!. As you can imagine - this is a tremendously expensive and painful exercise.. This dental work depends a lot on the condition of your gums and the state of your jaw-bones and teeth. For this reason these surgical procedures dont always achieve the desired results - and of course - theres no guarantee.. Probably more worrying, is the fact that a dental gum disease treatment can only attempt to deal with the underlying symptoms of your gum condition.. Its a ...
Improper Dental Hygiene: Daily dental care and regular professional dental cleanings remove plaque that adheres to the teeth and gums. If plaque remains and accumulates, this allows bacteria to deposit and cause gingivitis, which may in time lead to gum disease.. Medical Conditions: Diseases such as diabetes and kidney disease affect the bodys natural ability to produce sugar, and may be a factor in the development of gum disease. The Center for Disease Control has discovered a link between certain illnesses (including stroke, heart attack, and diabetes) and gum disease. In addition, some medications are believed to cause overgrown gums, which are more susceptible to bacteria, and therefore gum disease.. Organic Changes in the Mouth: During puberty, pregnancy, and menopause, metabolism and hormonal changes may take place, which produce organic changes in the mouth, increasing the risk of gum disease.. Poor Functional Habits: Teeth clenching or grinding may damage the surrounding tissue and may ...
The easiest way to describe eruption cysts is by talking about how teeth develop. Your childs teeth form inside of a protective enclosure in their jaw bone. When the teeth are done forming, they start to move through the bone, and then through the gums until they make it into the mouth. An eruption cyst occurs during the tooths final entry into the mouth - after it has already made its way through the bone and is just under the surface of the gums.. The protective enclosure which the tooth developed in can leak and allow fluid to accumulate between the tooth and the gums. If an opposing tooth touches the gums, it may cause fluid and possibly blood to accumulate between the tooth and the gum. This causes a bruise to form in the gum tissue between the tooth and the outside surface of your childs gums. Depending on the amount of blood that accumulates in the eruption cyst, it can be a translucent color, bluish purple, or even dark red and brown.. Although they are unattractive and often cause ...
Gum disease symptoms can range from severe, such as loose teeth to having no symptoms at all. It is important to have periodontal (or gum disease) screenings periodically, as it can affect several aspects of your general health. Dr. Todd Smith and Dr. Michael Cole can provide gum disease screenings in New Braunfels and Sequin, TX for dental care that is trusted.. Out of all gum disease symptoms, the fundamental concern regarding the presence of gum disease in the mouth is the loss of teeth. Losing teeth can affect basic functions such as eating and talking, as well as overall comfort. Teeth have a natural tendency to drift into spaces where other teeth have been lost, which can result in changes in the way your teeth fit together. Changes in your bite, or occlusion, can lead to discomfort and the need for additional restorative treatments. The gums, along with the bone structure, make up the foundation that supports your teeth.. A growing concern is the affect that gum disease can have on your ...
Youre a gum inspiration Tom. When you say that your gum pockets were reversed, does that now mean you have perfect normal gums with no signs of gum pockets? I currently have invisalign, I went to the ortho and they purposefully pushed down my gums at my front lower teeth, when I expressed my concern and upset, they said it was part of their big plan and they would grow back. I went to the dentist for a clean and asked her about it, she didnt believe me that the ortho would have done it and told me they wouldnt grow back. I have 1x5mm, 1x3-4mm and 1x1-2mm. Because I have invisalign saliva cant get in and plaque grows like nobodys business. I have a clean booked for March to clean all the subsequent plaque out, I didnt have any plaque in my mouth before they hacked my gums away. It looks so horrible. When I came across your blog, I was excited! I have ordered a Waterpik and Philips Sonicare toothbrush in preparation for maximum gum regrowth after my clean. Im going to order GSE and Im ...
Ever since you were small people have been telling you myths about how if you swallow chewing gum it will stay in your stomach for years. These are all old wives tales.. From the time that you were a young child, people most likely warned you that swallowing gum is dangerous and to avoid it at all costs.. The most popular account of this myth is that the body does not digest your gum and will stay in your body for years. Old wives tales go a bit further in warning that the gum will grow into a tree inside your stomach. Better yet, people have been the gum will entangle itself around the intestines and eventually strangle them, causing your digestion process to cease. The various warnings are many and continue to this day.. While there is no harm in people warning you of the dangers of swallowing gum, there is no truth to the myths. Gum, although not intended to be swallowed, it goes through the same digestion process as foods that are meant for swallowing and eating. Unlike what the tales tell ...
A gum abscess is an indication that the immune system is warding off bacterial infection occurring within the gums, preventing it from spreading any further. People with abscessed gums feel a sudden and excruciating pain that lasts for a few hours and sometimes, for a couple of days. The condition also makes the gums swell, reddish and tender to the touch. The affected individuals may also notice some white spots in the gums due to pus accumulation.. Treatment for gum abscess should be immediately considered in order to prevent it from getting worse, as it may result to a life-threatening condition. The doctor will determine the best treatment method based on the condition of the individual. The cure rate for gum abscess is higher once it is diagnosed and treated early.. ...

If gum recession is affecting your health or your appearance, a procedure called gingival (gum) grafting may be recommended. Although it might sound scary, a variety of gum grafting procedures are routinely performed by periodontists (specialists in the area of gingival tissue), and by some general dentists with specialized training in this field.. Gum grafting involves carefully placing a small amount of new tissue in an area where little or no gum tissue currently exists - typically recommended to prevent further gum recession or to cover root surfaces of your teeth that have become exposed. The tissue used in this procedure may come from a variety of sources but usually is taken from the palate (roof of the mouth), after the area has been numbed for your comfort. Then it is delicately sutured (stitched) in place where its needed, using suturing material which may be finer than a human hair.. Your bodys natural recovery process takes over after the grafting procedure is complete. During this ...

This condition is characterised by a grey appearance on the tips of the papillae. These are the normally triangular bits of gum between the teeth. Often there is a bad taste and foul smell as well. Typically it occurs in smokers. It is important to treat quickly since the loss of gum around the teeth is often permanent, however, it responds well to antibiotics.. Diagnosis of gum disease. As part of a regular examination, your gums are also inspected and may also be probed with a special probe called a BPE probe. This is used to determine whether there is periodontal disease present rather than just gingivitis.. Measurements are made of the depth of the pockets around the teeth, i.e. how much loss of attachment / bone there has been. Sometimes X-rays are also taken.. The probing around the teeth sound painful but is at most mildly uncomfortable! Many do not even notice we have done it!. Treatment of gum disease. The type of treatment you have will depend on how severe your gum disease has become. ...
Medical miracle! Chewing gum can serve as a quick breath freshener and some types can even clean your teeth. However, you may be surprised to learn that chewing gum can boost your concentration and improve memory. According to a new study published in the British Journal of Psychology, chewing gum can help you focus on tasks that require continuous monitoring over a long period of time. Researchers conducted a health-related memory test that involved listening to a list of numbers read aloud in random order. Participants were scored on how accurately and quickly they were able to recall a specific number sequence. One group chewed gum during this test. Results indicated that the participants who chewed gum had a faster reaction time and a better recall of the numbers compared to those who did not chew gum.. ...

If youve had periodontal (gum) disease, youve no doubt experienced gum inflammation, bleeding or pain. But your gums may not be the only mouth structures under assault - the disease may be damaging the underlying support bone.. Although easing soft tissue symptoms is important, our primary focus is to protect all your teeths supporting structures - the gums, the attaching ligaments and, of course, the bone. To do so we must stop the infection and reduce the risk of reoccurrence.. Stopping gum disease depends on removing its source - plaque, a thin biofilm of bacteria and food particles accumulating on tooth surfaces, due to poor oral hygiene. We must remove it mechanically - with hand instruments known as scalers or ultrasonic equipment that vibrates the plaque and calculus (hardened plaque deposits) loose.. Its not always a straightforward matter, though, especially if the diseased gum tissues have pulled away from the teeth. The slight natural gap between teeth can widen into voids known ...
If you have gum disease, effective treatment does exist and can help you prevent tooth and bone loss, as well as unsightly gum recession. Diagnosing gum disease early, and addressing it using simple methods like root planning and scaling, is much simpler and less painful than undergoing later-stage gum disease treatment. In deeper pockets it may be necessary to reduce the bacteria using antibiotics. When our patients have periodontal (gum) disease, we might use dentomycin in conjunction with root planning and scaling treatments, which lead to a marked reduction in bacteria in patients mouths. It has a positive anti-inflammatory action which allows the connective tissues to reattach back to the tooth. Gum disease treatment at our practice is administered in a peaceful atmosphere by the dentists who cares about your well-being.. Effective Periodontic Treatment with Dentomycin gel. ...

Gum disease sufferers 70% more likely to get dementia," The Times reports. A Taiwanese study found that people with a 10-year or longer history of chronic periodontitis (CP) had a small but significant increased risk of developing Alzheimers disease (AD).. Gum disease is an umbrella term used to refer to a number of conditions that can affect the gums - ranging from gingivitis, which can cause bleeding gums, to CP, where extensive damage to the gums and underlying bones can lead to tooth loss. This study only looked at CP. A previous study did find a link between gum disease and worsening dementia symptoms. But because the people taking part in the study had already been diagnosed with dementia, the picture was muddled, as it was hard to determine a relationship between cause and effect.. This latest study found that people who had CP for at least 10 years had an estimated 70% higher risk of developing AD than people without CP. However, although this increase was judged to be statistically ...

To date, CHPA has put together a comprehensive efficacy and safety program for children age two to under 12, including pharmacokinetic studies to confirm the dosing for the eight most commonly used OTC oral cough and cold ingredients. Once these dosing studies are finalized, CHPA plans to begin research on revalidating the effectiveness of these medicines.. In addition, CHPA stated it would continue to collect and review all available safety data around these medicines. "A comprehensive safety review in 2007 and data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that the majority of adverse events associated with OTC oral pediatric cough and cold medicines are a direct result of accidental ingestion," noted Linda Suydam, CHPA president. "Reducing these preventable errors is the cornerstone of CHPAs national educational program.". CHPA will also continue its national education program that focuses on the root causes of adverse events and speaks directly to parents, day care ...

Q.. Before Christmas last year my dentist told me I had quite bad gum disease. In February this year my gums started bleeding and I used Corsodyl mouthwash (I had used it before) but my mouth and gums came up in ulcers and my gums were inflamed. My dentist couldnt give me an appointment, I was in so much pain that I went to see another dental surgery who saw me there and then. The new dentist said I had an allergic reaction to the mouthwash. They discovered I have been grinding my teeth. Since then the ulcers have gone but now my gums have receded to the point that it feels like I have almost none, they hurt all the time, my teeth now hurt and I keep getting headaches. I saw the new dentists once a week for nearly 3 months and was sent to my GP for blood tests to check for underlying issues but it was clear. The new dentist said I need to see a periodontist - but they all charge more then I can afford. Im a single parent on benefits and on NHS tax credit exemption. But I cannot find an NHS ...
Gum disease or periodontal disease or gingivitis, as it is also called, is the number one cause of tooth loss. The reason teeth are lost from gum disease is because this disease attacks the gums as well as the bone, which are the foundation in which your teeth rest. As the bone literally dissolves away from around your teeth, teeth become loose and eventually fall out. Anyone, at any age, is susceptible to gum disease. Gum disease is caused by plaque. If the plaque is not removed on a daily basis, it will form calculus (tartar), which is the breeding ground for the germs which cause periodontal disease.. Bleeding gums are the first sign that there may be a problem with the gums. Puffy, tender red gums are also a sign that there is an infection present. Bleeding gums however are not always present even in severe cases of gum disease. Routine and regular visits to your dentist are the best way of catching gum disease in its early stages before too much damage has been caused. Gum disease will not ...
Sore throat or throat infection can progress and lead to fever, swollen gums and can lead to canker sores. Streptococci or other pathogenic bacteria can lead to throat infections. Viral or Candida infection can also lead to sore throat. Some allergic reaction can also lead to these symptoms. Acute gum infection can also lead to swelling and soreness of gums and canker sores. There is no definite cause of canker sores but it is known that bacterial infections, vitamin deficiency, allergies etc can lead to canker sores. Without clinical examination, it is difficult to give definite diagnosis. If there is throat infection present, then you can visit your physician for treatment. If there is acute gum infection present which has lead to these symptoms, then dental cleaning and or periodontal surgery will be required to correct it. In case of gum infection, maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly and also use a mouth wash. You can also do warm saline rinses 3-4 times a day to ...
Excess Tissue. A gummy smile can be caused by excessive gum tissue covering more of the enamel surface of a tooths crown (visible portion) than normal. If that is the case, a procedure known as "crown lengthening" can be performed, in which gum tissue (and sometimes a small amount of bone tissue) is removed to expose more tooth surface.. Receding Gums. Sometimes your gums can shrink down (recede), exposing a portion of your tooth roots. This causes a cosmetic problem because root surfaces, which have no enamel covering, tend to appear more yellow than the crowns of your teeth. Also, exposed roots can be more sensitive to cold or touch, and can be at greater risk of decay. There are various gum-grafting procedures that can cover exposed roots, which may involve moving gingival (gum) tissue from one site in the mouth to another. For example, roots can be covered with tissue from the roof of your mouth, which is of the same type; or adjacent (nearby) tissue can be moved over to cover an exposed ...

Gum disease and the menstruation period. Some women will note that during that sensitive period of the month, their gums get swollen, and even lesions or canker sores might appear within their mouth. Even more so, some women will also experience gum bleeding.. If this is the case with you, a special dentistry appointment is needed. The dentist will most probably prescribe the proper gum disease treatment or even topical anesthetic which will help relieving the pain and discomfort. Respecting those appointments for regular professional dental cleanings will also ease the discomfort.. Taking Oral contraceptives and gum bleeding ...
Our gums and jaw bone form the foundation of our teeth. The presence of plaque, bacteria and calculus (hardened/calcified plaque) around our gums can initiate a biological chain reaction, which unfortunately leads to destruction of gum and bone tissues around the teeth. In the early stages, there may be inflammation of the gums without any irreversible damage. The gums may appear swollen, reddened, and quite commonly bleed during toothbrushing and flossing. This is known as gingivitis & is quite common ...
Receding gums can be caused by a number of reasons. But one of the biggest problems is that it is actually quite a difficult condition to spot. If the gums are receding very slowly, it is always difficult to identify very gradual erosion. By then, it could be too late to take the necessary steps to slow it down.. Gum recession is most common in people over the age of 40. However, you could probably amend that to say that it is identified most often when people are in their Forties. In many cases, the gums have begun to recede very slowly before that so there was probably several opportunities for them to be diagnosed and for treatment to start.. So what causes your gums to recede? In the first instance, it can be something as simply as brushing your teeth too hard. We all want to get our teeth as clean as possible, but it is important that you clean your teeth in the right way.

Gum disease is a bacterial infection that happens when plaque gets below the gumline. Its easy to treat when caught early but can cause serious problems, including tooth loss, when left untreated. The mildest form of gum disease is called gingivitis. Its usually caused by not taking good care of your teeth and can be reversed by putting a good brushing and flossing routine in place. If gingivitis goes untreated, it can turn into the more serious form of gum disease known as periodontitis. Periodontitis happens when plaque spreads below the gumline and bacteria cause the gums to separate from the teeth, leading to pockets between the tooth and gum. As the infection gets worse, it can eventually lead to bone and tissue loss and loose teeth that may need to be removed. ...
Is there a link between gum disease and cancer? Does gum disease increase an individuals risk of getting cancer ? A study of over 48,000 professional males over 22 years published in the Lancet Oncology found that gum disease does indeed increase a persons overall risk of getting cancer.. At first glance it would appear that smoking could be the factor to link the two diseases, however the study found that there is an increase in risk independent of any smoking history. After smoking, diet and other known risk factors were taken into account and factored into the results, it was still found that, of the men surveyed those with a history of periodontal disease (gum disease) were 14% more likely to develop cancer than those with no history of periodontitis.. Scientists have been investigating the association. Is it the immune systems response to gum disease ? Or the passage of pathogens into the bloodstream that affects potential tumour sites and in turn the overall cancer risk.. Periodontal ...

Pocket reduction surgery - Periodontal disease can cause the smile to be marred with unattractive teeth, brown gums and ridge indentations. The aim of pocket reduction surgery is to clean the root surfaces of the teeth e subgingivally (beneath the gum line). During this procedure, tartar, plaque and bacteria that are affecting the teeth and gums will be removed. The gum is first gently separated away from the tooth, and then the calculus (tartar) and plaque are removed using special ultrasonic and hand instruments. An antimicrobial liquid may be administered to the area to destroy bacteria colonies and ensure the pockets are given the chance to naturally heal. Pocket reduction surgery is an effective way to restore health to the gums and bone ...
I had a gum and bone grafting surgery done 2 weeks ago. One of the stitches came loose and got caught and pulled the gum a little bit off in the worse area under the 2 bottom front teeth. I cut the stitch out so it wouldnt happen again. I cant see a dentist for at least another day. What should I do? I can see a gap in between the back gum and the front that is loose. The gum in the front did not seem to adhere like the others did. A lot of the bone graft appears to have fallen out. Is it ok to eat still? Do I need to get it restitched? What would you say to do? Thank you ...
Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection caused by bacterial plaque, a thin, sticky layer of microorganisms (called a biofilm) that collects at the gum line in the absence of effective daily oral hygiene. Left for long periods of time, plaque will cause inflammation that can gradually separate the gums from the teeth - forming little spaces that are referred to as "periodontal pockets." The pockets offer a sheltered environment for the disease-causing (pathogenic) bacteria to reproduce. If the infection remains untreated, it can spread from the gum tissues into the bone that supports the teeth. Should this happen, your teeth may loosen and eventually be lost.. When we start treating gum disease, we prefer to begin with a non-surgical approach consisting of one or more of the following:. ...

Diabetics with severe gum disease are twice as likely to die from either heart disease or kidney failure as those without gum disease. That is the conclusion of a new study from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. The study followed 549 people with type 2 diabetes for nearly 10 years. The death rate (from natural causes) for those with severe gum disease was 42 per 1000, while the death rate for those with healthy gums was 26.6 per 1000. The additional deaths for those with gum disease were due to heart disease and diabetic nephropathy ...

Veteran storyteller Hayes masterfully spins a kid-pleasing tall-tale from the Arizona desert. From the first line, "When I was a kid growing up in Arizona, I used to love to chew bubblegum," he shows his gift for connecting with young readers, who will completely accept his report of gum-inspired scoldings from a stern teacher and gum-caused laundry woes, and then why not? his story of how his trusty wad of bubblegum saved him from a rattlesnake: the snakes fangs get entangled in the gum and then the snake blows the worlds biggest bubble which explodes in the worlds biggest pop. Mexican artist Antonio Castros hyper-realistic illustrations complement the text perfectly. Young Joe is depicted with such meticulous attention to detail, from the gum bulge in his cheek to the hole in the bottom of his boot, that the gum-chewing rattler seems just as convincing: if a snake did chew bubblegum, this would be exactly how he would look. A brief illustrators note at the end shows how Castro uses models ...
The results of our meta-analysis have indicated gum chewing after caesarean section can significantly promote the intestinal function recovery by accelerating the time to first passage of flatus, first defecation, first bowel sound, first bowel movement and shortening the length of hospital stay. The gum-chewing groups faster recovery of gastrointestinal tract motility may result from stimulating intestinal motility by strengthening the cephalic-vagal reflex and increasing the gastrointestinal hormones secretion associated with bowel motility [9]. However, we did not find benefits of gum chewing on the time to first feeling of hunger, one possible explanation is that the chewing movement cause a feeding feedback to the brain, making a full feeling for our central nerve systems, additionally, the early feeding program employed in some studies can further enhance the hunger stimulus, previous study [10] has concluded that sham feeding confers no advantage if patients are placed on a rapid ...

... begins with the contraction of the muscles attached to the rib cage; this causes an expansion in the chest cavity. Then takes place the onset of contraction of the diaphragm, which results in expansion of the intrapleural space and an increase in negative pressure according to Boyle's law. This negative pressure generates airflow because of the pressure difference between the atmosphere and alveolus. Air enters, inflating the lung through either the nose or the mouth into the pharynx (throat) and trachea before entering the alveoli.[citation needed] Other muscles that can be involved in inhalation include:[2] ...
Some feel that the term tisane is more correct than herbal tea or that the latter is even misleading, but most dictionaries record that the word tea is also used to refer to other plants beside the tea plant and to beverages made from these other plants.[4][5] In any case, the term herbal tea is very well established and much more common than tisane.[1] The word tisane was rare in its modern sense before the 20th century, when it was borrowed in the modern sense from French. (This is why some people feel it should be pronounced /tɪˈzɑːn/ as in French, but the original English pronunciation /tɪˈzæn/ continues to be more common in US English and especially in UK English).[2] The word had already existed in late Middle English in the sense of "medicinal drink" and had already been borrowed from French (Old French). The Old French word came from the Latin word ptisana, which came from the Ancient Greek word πτισάνη (ptisánē), which meant "peeled" barley, in other words pearl barley, ...
A peripheral cannula is the most common intravenous access method utilized in both hospitals and pre-hospital services. A peripheral IV line (PVC or PIV) consists of a short catheter (a few centimeters long) inserted through the skin into a peripheral vein (any vein not situated in the chest or abdomen). This is usually in the form of a cannula-over-needle device, in which a flexible plastic cannula comes mounted over a metal trocar. Once the tip of the needle and cannula are introduced into the vein via venipuncture, the cannula is advanced inside the vein over the trocar to the appropriate position and secured, the trocar is then withdrawn and discarded. Blood samples may be drawn directly after the initial IV cannula insertion. Any accessible vein can be used although arm and hand veins are used most commonly, with leg and foot veins used to a much lesser extent. In infants, the scalp veins are sometimes used. The caliber of needles and catheters can be given in Birmingham gauge or French ...
In 2009, Teva Pharmaceuticals filed an ANDA to market a generic EpiPen in collaboration with Antares Pharma Inc, a maker of injection systems; Pfizer and King sued them for infringing US Patent 7,449,012 that was due to expire in 2025;[29] Pfizer, Mylan, and Teva settled in April 2012 in a deal that allowed Teva to start selling the device in mid-2015, pending FDA approval.[30]. In 2009, Intelliject, a US startup developing a new epinephrine autoinjector, licensed their product to Sanofi.[31]. King was acquired by Pfizer in 2010 for $3.6 billion in cash.[32]. In 2010, Sciele/Shionogi faced a recall of Twinject devices[33] and launched Adrenaclick, a modified version of the Twinject that could deliver only one dose.[34][35]. In 2010, European regulators approved Twinject,[36] and also approved a new epinephrine autoinjector made by ALK and sold under the brand name Jext.[37][38] Jext was launched in the European Union in September 2011.[39][40].

A softgel is an oral dosage form for medicine similar to capsules. They consist of a gelatin based shell surrounding a liquid fill. Softgel shells are a combination of gelatin, water, opacifier and a plasticiser such as glycerin or sorbitol. Softgels are produced in a process known as encapsulation using the Rotary Die Encapsulation process invented by Robert Pauli Scherer. The encapsulation process has been described as a form/fill/seal process. Two flat ribbons of shell material are manufactured on the machine and brought together on a twin set of rotating dies. The dies contain recesses in the desired size and shape, which cut out the ribbons into a two-dimensional shape, and form a seal around the outside. At the same time a pump delivers a precise dose of fill material through a nozzle incorporated into a filling wedge whose tip sits between the two ribbons in between two die pockets at the point of cut out. The wedge is heated to facilitate the sealing process. The wedge injection causes ...

They are used in hot weather to help cool down a horse after working, the alcohol cooling through rapid evaporation, and counterirritant oils dilating capillaries in the skin, increasing the amount of blood releasing heat from the body.[17] Many horse liniment formulas in diluted form have been used on humans, though products for horses which contain DMSO are not suitable for human use, as DMSO carries the topical product into the bloodstream.[18] Horse liniment ingredients such as menthol, chloroxylenol, or iodine are also used in different formulas in products used by humans.[19] Absorbine, a horse liniment product manufactured by W.F. Young, Inc., was reformulated for humans and marketed as Absorbine Jr.[20] The company also acquired other liniment brands including Bigeloil and ...
When a chemical comes in contact with the mucous membrane beneath the tongue, it is absorbed. Because the connective tissue beneath the epithelium contains a profusion of capillaries, the substance then diffuses into them and enters the venous circulation. In contrast, substances absorbed in the intestines are subject to "first-pass metabolism" in the liver before entering the general circulation.. Sublingual administration has certain advantages over oral administration. Being more direct, it is often faster,[quantify] and it ensures that the substance will risk degradation only by salivary enzymes before entering the bloodstream, whereas orally administered drugs must survive passage through the hostile environment of the gastrointestinal tract, which risks degrading them, either by stomach acid or bile, or by the many enzymes therein, such as monoamine oxidase (MAO). Furthermore, after absorption from the gastrointestinal tract, such drugs must pass to the liver, where they may be extensively ...

... or lip salve is a wax-like substance applied topically to the lips of the mouth to moisturize and relieve chapped or dry lips, angular cheilitis, stomatitis, or cold sores. Lip balm often contains beeswax or carnauba wax, camphor, cetyl alcohol, lanolin, paraffin, and petrolatum, among other ingredients. Some varieties contain dyes, flavor, fragrance, phenol, salicylic acid, and sunscreens. The primary purpose of lip balm is to provide an occlusive layer on the lip surface to seal moisture in lips and protect them from external exposure. Dry air, cold temperatures, and wind all have a drying effect on skin by drawing moisture away from the body. Lips are particularly vulnerable because the skin is so thin, and thus they are often the first to present signs of dryness. Occlusive materials like waxes and petroleum jelly prevent moisture loss and maintain lip comfort while flavorants, colorants, sunscreens, and various medicaments can provide additional, specific benefits. Lip balm can be ...
A self-microemulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS) is a drug delivery system that uses a microemulsion achieved by chemical rather than mechanical means. That is, by an intrinsic property of the drug formulation, rather than by special mixing and handling. It employs the familiar ouzo effect displayed by anethole in many anise-flavored liquors. Microemulsions have significant potential for use in drug delivery, and SMEDDS (including so-called "U-type" microemulsions) are the best of these systems identified to date.[1] SMEDDS are of particular value in increasing the absorption of lipophilic drugs taken by mouth.. SMEDDS in research or development include formulations of the drugs anethole trithione,[2] oridonin,[3][4][5] curcumin,[6] vinpocetine,[7][8] tacrolimus,Mitotane,[9][10][11] berberine hydrochloride,[12] nobiletin,[13] piroxicam,[14][15] anti-malaria drugs beta-Artemether[16] and halofantrine,[17][18] anti-HIV drug UC 781,[19][20] nimodipine,[21][22] exemestane,[23] anti-cancer drugs ...
... s contain both a dispersed and a continuous phase, with the boundary between the phases called the "interface"[4]. Emulsions tend to have a cloudy appearance because the many phase interfaces scatter light as it passes through the emulsion. Emulsions appear white when all light is scattered equally. If the emulsion is dilute enough, higher-frequency (low-wavelength) light will be scattered more, and the emulsion will appear bluer - this is called the "Tyndall effect".[citation needed]If the emulsion is concentrated enough, the color will be distorted toward comparatively longer wavelengths, and will appear more yellow. This phenomenon is easily observable when comparing skimmed milk, which contains little fat, to cream, which contains a much higher concentration of milk fat. One example would be a mixture of water and oil.[citation needed] Two special classes of emulsions - microemulsions and nanoemulsions, with droplet sizes below 100 nm - appear translucent.[5] This property is due to ...
An electronic cigarette is a handheld battery-powered vaporizer that simulates smoking by providing some of the behavioral aspects of smoking, including the hand-to-mouth action of smoking, but without combusting tobacco.[8] Using an e-cigarette is known as "vaping" and the user is referred to as a "vaper."[9] Instead of cigarette smoke, the user inhales an aerosol, commonly called vapor.[10] E-cigarettes typically have a heating element that atomizes a liquid solution called e-liquid.[11] E-cigarettes are automatically activated by taking a puff;[12] others turn on manually by pressing a button.[9] Some e-cigarettes look like traditional cigarettes,[13] but they come in many variations.[9] Most versions are reusable, though some are disposable.[14] There are first-generation,[15] second-generation,[16] third-generation,[17] and fourth-generation devices.[18] E-liquids usually contain propylene glycol, glycerin, nicotine, flavorings, additives, and differing amounts of contaminants.[19] ...

The raw material for petroleum jelly was discovered in 1859 in Titusville, Pennsylvania, United States, on some of the country's first oil rigs. Workers disliked the paraffin-like material forming on rigs because it caused them to malfunction, but they used it on cuts and burns because they believed that it hastened healing.[2][3] Robert Chesebrough, a young chemist whose previous work of distilling fuel from the oil of sperm whales had been rendered obsolete by petroleum, went to Titusville to see what new materials had commercial potential. Chesebrough took the unrefined black "rod wax", as the drillers called it, back to his laboratory to refine it and explore potential uses. Chesebrough discovered that by distilling the lighter, thinner oil products from the rod wax, he could create a light-colored gel. Chesebrough patented the process of making petroleum jelly by U.S. Patent 127,568 in 1872. The process involved vacuum distillation of the crude material followed by filtration of the still ...
On February 14, 1929, "Dr. Horn directed the nurse to use the proctoclysis, known as the "Murphy drip." While the operation was in progress a student nurse in the employ of the hospital prepared the room for the return of the appellant. The proctoclysis set was a part of the equipment of the hospital and was assembled and placed at or near the foot of the bed by the student nurse. The proctoclysis set consists of a standard which is an iron pole setting on a tripod containing hooks at intervals, and on these hooks by means of a chain, tape, string, or piece of gauze is hung a can containing hot water and soda solution. From this can a tube extends which is inserted in the rectum of the patient to whom the proctoclysis is administered. It was necessary to keep the solution hot in order that it would have a body temperature after dropping through the tube and entering the body. ...

Procedures involving injection of any substance into the epidural space require the operator to be technically proficient in order to avoid complications.. The subject may be in the seated, lateral or prone positions.[2] The level of the spine at which the catheter is best placed depends mainly on the site and type of an intended operation or the anatomical origin of pain. The iliac crest is a commonly used anatomical landmark for lumbar epidural injections, as this level roughly corresponds with the fourth lumbar vertebra, which is usually well below the termination of the spinal cord. The Tuohy needle is usually inserted in the midline, between the spinous processes. When using a paramedian approach, the tip of the needle passes along a shelf of vertebral bone called the lamina until just before reaching the ligamentum flavum and the epidural space.. Along with a sudden loss of resistance to pressure on the plunger of the syringe, a slight clicking sensation may be felt by the operator as the ...
