gum disease detection
Gum disease is caused by bacteria that increase the risk of certain cancers. These include cancer of the pancreas, esophagus, colon, lungs, and the head and neck. With gum disease, bacteria can leak from blood vessels around the gums and travel throughout the body. Gum disease is a cause of ongoing generalized inflammation, which may promote the advancing growth of tumors and cardiovascular disease. New methods offered by Dr. Allan C. Jones from OralDNA®Labs allows for detection of these bacteria from a small amount of saliva sampled by the dentist. Once identified, these disease-producing bacteria may be reduced or eliminated for improved health.

Keep it natural at
At Celibre Medical, a frequent comment is. “I’m interested in Botox and dermal fillers, but I’m really concerned about looking unnatural.” The most important factor in maintaining a natural appearance is to ease into the process. Don’t take on too much too soon and you won’t regret the results. A second factor is to not go overboard. If you had small cheekbones to begin with, replacing the fat and collagen you’ve lost with dermal fillers may work better for you than trying to create the type of cheekbones you’ve never had.

Robert Waldinger, study director of a 75-year Harvard study says that “good relationships keep us happier and healthier.” Many people expect that economic status, fame, or social status would correlate to happiness, but this was found not to be true. He found three powerful truths for aging well and being happy:
1) Loneliness kills us both physically and psychologically. Unfortunately one in five Americans report that they are lonely.
2) Warm relationships create greater physical and mental health. Being in “securely attached relationships” keeps your memory sharper and more healthy longer.
3) “Lean into relationships.” Put down phones, tablets, and leave PCs to share time with the significant people in your life.
