They factor their fur babies’ welfare in their daily decision-making and routine. But this millennial mentality is not the only thing at play. The conveniences and innovations that sprung in the last decade have made owning a pet more satisfying and fulfilling.

More Pet Food Choices

There is now an impressive range of pet food on the market that buying pet food can be more confusing than buying for your own. There are choices for each kind of animal, breed, and size. They come in different flavors and nutritional values per serving. You can choose commercial or organic, factory-made or small-scale formulations, local or imported.

The advantage with commercial pet food is they are cheaper. Organic and all-natural are best for high nutrition needs, while locally made pet food is freshest. For example, dog food produced and bought in California is fresher than imported brands because the factory-to-market period is shorter.

Variety is a perk for pet owners who value their pet’s health above anything else.

More Pet Care Tools and Accessories

Grooming, cleaning and training pets are now easier thanks to cool accessories. Basics like beds, leashes and feeding bowls now have various versions. For example, we now have automatic food dispensers, retractable leashes, and “palaces” for cats and dogs.

More Shopping Options

Given the growth of the Millennial pet owners’ market group, more stores and supermarkets are now stocking food, bedding, and other necessities for pets. For those who want more variety and longer catalogs, there’s online shopping. Euromonitor International reports that online sales of cat and dog food increased by 15% in 2016 in the United States alone. As we all know, Millennials tend to prefer electronic buying especially if it comes with free delivery.

All this would have seemed frivolous ten years ago. Learning more about domestic animals and their unique needs encourage pet owners today to provide what they can. After all, pets are family. They repay our love and care with furry hugs and sloppy kisses – and to a millennial, that’s payment enough.

Woman holding in her hand fallen hair from her headStress-induced hair loss is a sad and unfortunate truth that affects many people, particularly adults in the UK. And while hair loss usually affects men, women can suffer from it as well.

Stress is always a bad thing. However, people cannot always avoid it, especially since stress-causing unforeseeable and unpreventable incidents can happen to anyone. However, the hair loss that it brings does not have to cause permanent damage.

This is especially true with today’s innovative FUT hair transplant procedures.

The FUT advantage

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) has quickly become one of the most popular hair restoration techniques nowadays, and for many good reasons.

The procedure involves transplanting the patient’s hair in naturally occurring follicular units – groups consisting of one to four hairs. These units, which contain essential components including a small muscle, oil glands, nerves, and sometimes, fine vellus hairs, create results that look as natural as possible.

Because Follicular Unit Transplantation allows surgeons to transplant safely these small units, they can perform the procedure using thousands of grafts in just one session. This then results in the maximisation of treatment’s cosmetic impact.

More advanced than other forms of hair transplant procedures

Traditional hair transplantation procedures involved the use of larger grafts. Because of this, the result usually looks unnatural and wig-like. But with an expertly carried out follicular unit transplant, you can expect the results to mimic the natural way your hair grows.

The authenticity of the outcome makes you look like you have not undergone any transplant at all.

Relieve yourself of stress and the stress of losing hair

Aside from the stress that has built up in you, seeing yourself lose a lot of hair on a daily basis further boosts these negative emotions. Before you suffer from even more hair loss, you should have this treated as soon as possible. This way, you can at least control some of the stress you feel.

Patient and dentistsLosing your teeth can cause problems with eating, speaking and your self-esteem. You may be embarrassed about smiling and this can affect your social interactions. Dentures and bridges used to be the only option and were often unsatisfactory. Now, new technology has allowed patients to benefit from the advantages of dental implants. Implants are more natural looking, stable and comfortable, so you can eat your favourite foods again and smile confidently. They act in the same way as the natural tooth roots so can also improve the health of the jaw. This is because they stimulate the bone and tissues during biting and chewing, preventing the shrinkage that can happen when missing teeth are replaced in other ways.

How do dental implants work?

A small titanium screw is inserted into the jaw during a minor operation. This is performed using local anaesthetic, so it is comfortable. Over the next six to eight weeks, the bones and blood vessels of the jaw mesh around the implant, stabilising it and ensuring that it stays in place. When it is secure, the implant is used as a base for crowns, dentures or bridges. Sometimes it is possible to fit the implants and replacement teeth on the same day. This means that you can enjoy a new look immediately and start to benefit from an improved quality of life very quickly. Polwarth Dental Clinic in Edinburgh has helped many patients with dental implants and find that they offer a great long-term solution.

How long do implants last?

Just as you need to look after natural teeth, your dental implants will also need care. Otherwise they can develop a bacterial coating in the same way as other teeth, which can lead to soreness, infection and gum disease. This can lead to bad breath or the loss of other teeth. Your dentist will advise on how to look after and clean your new teeth properly. With the correct attention, your implants can last for several decades. Investing in dental implants could be the start of a happier and healthier future for you.

Medical LabThe medical industry continues to try and find cures for a range of diseases that cause health complications and deaths every year. The discovery of antibiotics, for instance, saved millions of lives that otherwise would have succumbed to bacterial infections.

Discovering cures to health complications entails rigorous research and testing, however. One way for scientists and medical experts like those from Jean Brown Research to achieve this is by conducting clinical trials.

Understanding Clinical Trials

Clinical trials enable medical professionals to explore whether a medical strategy or treatment is effective and safe to use on humans. They may also show what kind of medical approaches work best for specific illnesses or groups of people. These clinical research studies produce information that significantly improves the healthcare decision-making process.

Furthermore, the participants in a clinical trial don’t have to be necessarily sick. Some trials require healthy volunteers, depending on the development stage of a drug or treatment.

Clinical Trials Improve Treatments

Thanks to clinical trials, the quality of medical care has continually improved in the past decades. Their intricately-designed tests for new drugs, treatments, procedures, and devices for diseases provide medical professionals the opportunity to pinpoint the flaws or effectiveness of each specific treatment. These rigorous tests can pave the way to the creation of revolutionary medicines and treatments and save millions of lives across the globe.

Clinical Trials and Its Detractors

Despite the many benefits clinical trials provide, there are some who criticize the practice due to possible side effects it could have on volunteers. Dr. Neal Thomas of the Penn State College of Medicine states, though, that medical research is a necessary tool to advance medical care.

There are a handful of criticisms regarding clinical trials. Medical experts and professionals, however, conduct them with utmost precision and care, ensuring the well-being of volunteers.

Child With Her DentistLike adults, children – from infants to teenagers – need proper dental care, and require regular visits to the dentist. A pediatric dentist specializes in providing dental care for kids.

Here are some reasons that make taking your child to a South Bend pediatric dental clinic like Mahoney Family Dentistry important:

Specialized Training

A pediatric dentist specializes in providing oral healthcare for children. Thus they are more qualified than regular dentists to handle dental problems that commonly affect children such as over-retained baby teeth, tooth decay, cavities, and wisdom teeth (for teenagers and older kids). The pediatric dentist is also trained to administer sedation to younger patients going through intensive dental procedures. Two to three years of additional training in child growth, development, and psychology, is required after dental school to become a pediatric dentist.

Experience in Calming Children

Working with kids every day allows pediatric dentists to become very familiar with common concerns that kids face when visiting the dentist. Thus, they can design their treatment approaches to address these concerns. They can calm children down, and make them comfortable during treatments than regular dentists. Likewise, they staff their clinics with child-friendly employees.

Habit Counseling

Some children develop bad oral habits like teeth grinding and thumb sucking. A South Bend pediatric dentistry practitioner can help your child get rid of these habits. He will sit down with your child and teach about the need to break these harmful habits.

Making Dental Care Fun

A good pediatric dentists sets up his office to fit the taste of his young patients. Thus, a typical pediatric dental office is colorful and adorned with fun themed decorations like outer space or aquatic life. The waiting area usually features fun options for kids that are waiting for their turn to see their dentist.

The ideal pediatric dentist can make your child see dental appointments as having fun and something to look forward to.

Teeth With BracesA dentist will usually recommend braces to improve a patient’s dental health and appearance. Crooked and crowded teeth, overbites, misaligned jaws and jaw disorders, if left untreated can cause serious problems. Problems include issues with speaking, biting or chewing food as well as headaches and achy jaws. These problems can then have knock-on effects on your confidence and self-esteem.

When to get a brace

Dental patients at practices such as Enhancedental in Leeds can benefit from braces at any age. However the ideal time is between the age of 10 and 14, as this is when the jawbone and head are still growing, which makes straightening teeth is easier. However, braces are not reserved only for children, they are becoming increasingly popular with adults, due to the new options available.

What are the options?

The most popular type of brace is the more traditional bracket form, which is bonded to the teeth and not removeable. They come in metal or ceramic and can be customised with different coloured bands to make them more appealing to younger patients. The ceramic type of brace is tooth-coloured, which means they blend into the background of your teeth. Another option is the concealed brace, referred to as lingual braces by dental professionals. These are attached to the backs of the teeth and so are completely hidden from view.

Newer braces, such as Invisalign, are removeable and tend to be popular with adults. Patients can remove them to brush, floss and eat. This type of brace is only suitable for less severe dental problems.

How long do I have to wear them for?

This depends on each individual case. In general, the more complicated the problem, the longer you may have to wear a brace. For most people, treatment is between 12 and 24 months in total. Minor alterations can be achieved with removable braces in as little as 6 months.

Is it a painful process?

Your teeth will be gently guided into the correct new positions, meaning that your teeth and jaw might feel slightly sore at times. However, discomfort levels are generally low and can be eased with over the counter medication, such as paracetamol.

Mouth With Perfect Teeth Mention the word braces to most people, and the image that probably springs into their mind is of a teenager with an awkward smile and a mouth full of metal. This is still a standard method for straightening teeth, and they are wearing what is known as a fixed appliance. The other type of brace which is widely available is known as a removable retainer. Whatever type of brace a person wears, the principle behind the procedure is always the same. All braces are designed to apply pressure to the patient’s teeth to move them into a better position.

There have been many improvements in the types of braces which are available now, many have been designed with adults in mind. There are both fixed and removable types, which often focus on correcting the alignment of just the front teeth. This type of brace is popular with many dentists such as Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent. Braces such as Six-Month Smiles and Invisalign offer patients a greater choice about the options that are available to them. All of these braces have been designed to be discreet, allowing their wearers to enjoy the prospect of straighter teeth without an embarrassing metallic smile.

Heading straight for the future

For many adults, straight teeth are something that they have resigned themselves to living without. In some cases, a person’s teeth may only be a little crooked and they were told that they did not need to wear braces as a child. In other cases, a person may have had their teeth straightened when they were younger but did not have a retainer fitted to keep them in place. A fixed or removable retainer is needed to prevent the teeth moving back towards their original position.

The good news for adults who would like to have straighter teeth is that it is now easier than ever before to achieve this. Depending on the degree of tooth-straightening needed this can often be achieved in just six months if just the front teeth are treated. Having straighter teeth has never been more popular and for many people in Kent, braces are now helping to give them the smiles of their dreams.

Woman brushing her teethYou have probably been told to brush and floss every day to keep your teeth healthy. But do you know that you need to do more than that to maintain good dental health?

A professional who practices endodontics in Hertfordshire shares some guidelines on how to improve your dental health.

Take care of your toothbrush

Every time you use your toothbrush, rinse it properly before storing it. Ensure that you store it in an upright position in a place with sufficient airflow. Air helps keep the toothbrush dry, preventing the growth of bacteria that could thrive in moist conditions. Replace your toothbrush every time its bristles start to get frayed.

Brush your tongue

Your tongue attracts bacteria. The best way to fight these microorganisms is by brushing your tongue. Invest in a high-quality toothbrush that contains a cheek and tongue cleaner for best results. Cleaning your tongue helps prevent bad breath and keep your teeth healthy.

Do not skip your visit to the dentist

A reliable dentist can help you maintain good dental hygiene and spot any problems that you may have with your teeth. He will advise you on what is the appropriate daily brushing and flossing plan so you can maintain proper oral care.

Avoid sugary beverages

The liquids you consume can have a significant impact on your teeth. Drinking soda and other sugary juices may lead to tooth decay, while fresh juices, water and milk help keep your teeth healthy.

Use fluoride more often

Many adults make the mistake of thinking that fluoride is only for children. Fluoride strengthens the tooth enamel and protects your teeth from cavities. You may get this important mineral from toothpaste, supplements, or some mouth rinses.

Everybody has some sort of oral problems, but you can do something about it. The best way to stay healthy is by sticking to consistent oral care routine and following your dentist’s advice.

A woman touching her neck in pain Many adults experience some form of neck pain. In many instances, these are treatable using home remedies. However, chronic neck pain can be a sign of something worse.

If you live in Fort Worth, Cervical Spine Institute recommends visiting a Cervical Spine Center to find out if there is an underlying problem in your condition. Here’s what you need to know:

The Cause of Pain

There can be several causes for neck pain. Sleeping in the wrong position, for instance, can give you a stiff neck the entire day. Engaged in physical activities? Repetitive motions, such as dancing, swimming, or any other vigorous activity can lead to an overuse of the neck muscles. Other sources of chronic neck pain could be bad posture and physical injuries, like from car accidents.

After consulting your physician, you’ll know that the pain is manageable and you can ease them through simple remedies like icing the area, resting, or — in the case of bad posture — correcting it. If these are insufficient to relieve discomfort, medication or physical therapy may be in order. If these do not work as well, surgery may be your only option.

If the Pain Worsens

When the pain or stiffness radiates beyond your neck and starts affecting other parts of your body, there may be something wrong. Red flags may include fever, nausea, fatigue, and unexpected weight loss that isn’t part of a change in your diet. When you experience tingling of the nerves, loss of balance when walking, difficulty gripping or lifting objects, and loss of bladder control, seeing a specialist may be in order.

As mentioned, cervical spine trauma or neck pain is easy to deal with (depending on its severity) given the correct advice and assistance. From first aid to daily care, knowing what to do is essential to prevent simple issues from becoming worse.
