If you’ve scheduled yourself for some wisdom teeth extraction through a Philadelphia dentist, it’s very important that you know what to expect both during and after the procedure. Read on to be better prepared for the big day. Getting To The Site – It is highly recommended that you have someone drive you to and back from the procedure, since you’ll probably be groggy and a bit disoriented depending on the anesthesia used. Driving yourself after a procedure might only end in an accident, plus it’s always more reassuring if you have a friend or family nearby.

"When people hear the word balding or receding hairline, the first thing that comes to mind is probably an old man with male pattern baldness. Hair loss, however, is not a problem that comes exclusively with age. The New York Post reports that even teens are suffering from hair loss, and are turning to hair transplant surgery to overcome their problem. Early hair thinning is actually not that uncommon and can be caused by a wide variety of reasons. Social media, though, highlights the issue. With the popularity of “selfies,” many people feel the need to document and post their daily activities. This becomes problematic for teenagers who are suffering from hair loss, as they are sometimes teased and bullied about their thin hair or high hairline, which becomes obvious in pictures. As a result, they lose their confidence and withdraw from social networks or limit their interaction in it. "

Whether your hair loss was the result of age, heredity, stress, medical-related issues, or an accident, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Beyond rough horseplay and sporting injuries, even chewing rather absent-mindedly can damage your teeth irreparably. Chewing on hard, solid pieces of food, like candy, or biting into the hard seeds of a guava, can chip or crack your tooth. If you ignore the damage and continue to use that part of the tooth to bite down on food, or especially on hard fragments like meat bones, it can cause the crown of your tooth to cave in without warning. Tooth damage that comes to that point may be ripe for dental implants, installed through your preferred Bala Cynywyd dental practitioner, such as Dr. Anthony Farole, DMD.

Many adults and young adults are familiar with wisdom teeth. They are the third set of molars that grow at the back of the mouth, usually around the ages of 17 to 25. Many adults prefer to have them removed, although in some cases it really isn’t needed. There are, however, many reasons to have them removed through specialists who perform wisdom teeth extraction in Bala Cynwyd. Here are a few of them: • They can be trapped in your gums or jawbone, which causes pain. Most of the time, wisdom teeth don’t grow the right way. Some of them are crooked, sometimes they only grow partially, and sometimes they don’t emerge at all. When the wisdom teeth’s growth is irregular it can remain trapped in the gum area, causing pain and even pushing at the adjacent teeth and damaging them.

Hair loss gradually becomes more of a problem as men age, particularly those afflicted with male pattern baldness. While the condition may seem common enough, it remains a very real concern for affected men, leaving many of them depressed, frustrated, and socially withdrawn, with their self-confidence seriously depleted. Fortunately, locals can find ways to address male pattern baldness, including surgical hair restoration by Bala Cynwyd practitioners, such as Dr. Anthony Farole, DMD. Male Pattern Baldness Also known as androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness starts with the conversion of some testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, which could cause the miniaturization of hair follicles until they can no longer produce fully-grown hair. It starts with the thinning of hair on the temples and mid-upper scalp, gradually spreading to the top of the scalp, leaving hair only on both sides, or none at all.

There will be times in your life when you’ll be forced to make some hard decisions about your teeth, especially when one or a couple are lost. One of these decisions may be whether to have dental implants installed or not, and an article on Dentalimplants.com underlines the seriousness of doing so. Some studies show that when a tooth is lost, the body is forced to close the gap it leaves behind, leading to a reduction in alveolar bone since it has one less tooth to support. The loss of teeth, over time, will also result in the mouth having a more sunken appearance as the jawbone mass shrinks, which can be evident among elderly patients. When the thought of even losing one permanent tooth weighs on you too hard, weigh your options with a person proficient at installing dental implants in Bala Cynwyd like Dr. Anthony Farole, DMD.
