If you’ve ever visited the dentist because of wisdom teeth pain, you will no doubt be asking yourself why it is we have them. Why, if in most cases you need to get them removed, do they grow and cause a significant amount of pain? Many people will be all too familiar with wisdom teeth laying dormant for years, only to emerge and create nothing but pain, discomfort, and inflammation. They serve no purpose, so why are they there?
There is a prevailing theory amongst anthropologists and the dentist workforce that wisdom teeth only exist because of our ancestors’ early diet. Before we began to consume softer foods and started to use knives and forks, we had to rely on our teeth to grind, crunch, and break foliage, berries, nuts, and other natural ingredients.
We now live in a more convenient age, and wisdom teeth are now redundant. In fact, you can almost call wisdom teeth a vestigial organ – something you no longer need in your body because of modern conveniences and technological advancements.
Why Do Wisdom Teeth Take So Long to Appear?
Between age 17 and 25, most people will find themselves calling their dentist for wisdom tooth extraction. This time of your life tends to be the most common for wisdom teeth to erupt through the surface – even if they’ve been growing under your gum line for some time. The reason for them appearing so late is that, like most teeth, they grow on a timeline.
When it comes to arm liposuction the procedure is a little more invasive than some other kinds because there are two arms to be done, not just one site. And because your arms move around a lot more than your torso, you need to take extra care of them after the surgery. Even though the cuts made for this procedure are tiny, they are still cuts and so need to be attended to carefully.
It is not only a matter of healing the cuts either. Remember that a lot of fatty cells have been removed through those tiny cuts. This removal will cause some blood loss and there is likely to be leakage of fluid and blood from the cuts until they heal. This is a good thing because the fluid and blood are now waste products and need to be removed. Those cuts can’t be stitched up; if they are, the waste will be kept trapped under the skin.
Often, people get on drugs with the intention of just trying them out, but before they know it they are addicted and their life becomes a chaotic mess. If you are thinking of going to drug rehab, there are a few different options that you can try, depending on your circumstances. It’s important to choose one that will give you the best chance of beating those drugs. Here are a few options.
Day clinics: this is where you go for treatment during the day, but return home for the night. These are the cheapest options because there are no accommodation costs. However, because you return home each night, it is not necessarily the best option, especially if there are other drug users living there. Being at home can put you at risk of losing the struggle, especially when it gets to the hard stage.
Staying warm is important for your health, especially in winter. Being too cold can cause many health problems and exacerbate your symptoms when you get a cold or flu. Electricians will usually tell you the best way to keep warm is with the use of electric heating of some kind. Electricity is quick, clean, non-toxic and efficient. In addition it is widely available.
Years ago when not much heating was available, people used to get an itchy and painful condition called chilblains. It caused weeping sores on their extremities- toes, fingers, and sometimes ears – that took ages to heal. In fact, it would only heal when the warmer weather arrived. A condition called trench foot has also been noted by those who spend too much time in a cold environment.
There is no doubt about it; going to the dentist is painful to the wallet as well as to your gums, especially if you haven’t been for ages and have more than one procedure that needs doing. While it is certainly a good idea to have your teeth checked at least once a year, many people don’t do this, with the result that they need multiple fillings and/or extractions, not to mention cleaning and scaling, root canal work or caps.
Young people often need to have braces to straighten their teeth and prevent further problems as they age and this too, is usually extremely expensive. Some people decide to go overseas for dental treatment because it is so much cheaper. However, is this really a good idea? Here are some pros and cons for doing so.
If you have small front teeth either due to wear or because of genetics, it may give you a gummy smile. This can make you feel embarrassed and impact your social and even your work life. An attractive smile makes most people more self confident. Consulting with a dentist will usually find a way to overcome this or other dental problems.
A gummy smile due to small teeth can usually be fixed quite easily with composite resin bonding. This is when a natural looking material is applied directly to the teeth to create the required shape and replace the worn part. It can make worn teeth look longer so that the smile is more natural.
Sometimes the teeth are worn at the sides rather than along the top, making them look somewhat pointed. This too, is not an acceptable look and people affected tend to hide their teeth by not smiling or talking as much as they could. Composite resin bonding is also suitable for this problem.
