Why you Can’t Believe Everything you Read
It seems like a simple enough question: what is the best whitening toothpaste? this is actually a somewhat difficult question to frame because there are different answers depending on what one is looking for. The manufacturers and brand advertising will often mince words because in principle, any toothpaste helps brighten your teeth with normal use so any could claim to be the best whitening toothpaste simply by claiming to be the best paste in general, even if it has no special additional bleaching chemicals or properties. however, as the prospective customer, this is not what we are looking for.
Which Toothpaste Whitens Teeth The Best?
It should be clear that a toothpaste claiming to be the best, or even just a whitening toothpaste, may just be part of the advertising and nothing more. what customers would really like to know is, what is the best toothpaste to whiten teeth? To answer this question we must consider both the ‘whitening factor’ and the ‘toothpaste factor’. in short, this product must still be an excellent toothpaste in general. The primary purpose, as a toothpaste, is always to effectively clean the teeth, while the secondary purpose is to provide additional whitener features. unfortunately there is no single winner for this grand title.
The reasons for this are as follows. first, there are two main categories of teeth whitening: stain removal and general (shade) whitening. every toothpaste will help with both types of teeth whitening but some products are designed primarily for one or the other. when looking for your potential best whitening toothpaste, it is essential that you know what type of whitening you need. The second reason is that everyone’s body, lifestyle, and teeth are different. Consequently, the causes for teeth staining or darkening will be different, as will the solutions. even the best brands have different strengths and ultimately it may come down to trying different products to find the one that works best for you. however, here are a number of consistently excellent contenders:
• Opalescence Plus
• Arm & Hammer Complete Care Extra Whitening
• Rembrandt plus Peroxide
• Rembrandt Premium Extra Gentle
Finding The Best Whitening Toothpaste – what to Look for?
Here are several points to remember when looking for the best toothpaste to whiten your teeth:
• know what type of whitening you need and what you want. E.g. stain removal, generally whiter shade, or maintaining your current shade from another whitening or bleaching treatment.
• some people are sensitive to a number of the chemicals commonly used in whitening products (or even normal toothpastes). Knowing what ingredients you sensitive to will greatly simplify your search.
• Genuine teeth whitening toothpaste will list one or more ingredients that specifically help with whitening and/or stain removal. some of these ingredients include: baking soda, calcium carbonate, silica, aluminum oxide, and peroxide.
• Remember the best whitening toothpaste is not just the one that makes your teeth the brightest. The ‘toothpaste factor’ is more important than the ‘whitening factor’. you must be looking for a product that you can use long-term to maintain healthy teeth without excessive irritation.
• be patient. even the strongest toothpaste is designed for long-term results so you may not notice any effects weeks or even months. If you want faster results then you will want to look into teeth whitening treatments that are stronger than toothpastes.
Remember that there is no universal best toothpaste. If one product works for someone you know but not for you then try a different product, don’t give up hope. however, if you are looking for a powerful tooth whitener solution, even the best whitening toothpaste is not the answer and you should consider stronger options such as strips (intermediate) or gel (most powerful).
No lover ever feels alone, when they are in the arms of their beloved.
No child ever feels neglect when they can rely on their friends for promises, no adolescent feels the blistering stings of indignity when they listen to their soul more than they listen to the crowd, and no person must suffer through the anguish of life so long as they believe in who they are.
Contraception, or birth control, is something that has evolved over the ages in every culture. in every age, though, it has allowed people to accomplish the greatest pleasure without the greatest responsibility. The principle of contraception is this: that one may enjoy sex, without having to worry about some of the problems derived from sexual activity, such as sexually-transmitted-diseases or pregnancy. yet today, like in any age of Western Civilization, there is always a front to contraception. On religious or moral grounds, or both, there are numerous claims that contraception and birth prevention are cruel or uncivilized. that, on some mythical or mystic principle, we ought to abstain from sex, unless we are willing to take the consequences of birth — or, unless we are going to throw those consequences on to a child who the world did not want. I will say this: birth prevention, in any form or means, works to prevent children from entering this world that are not wanted. it prevents the spread of life-threatening and debilitating diseases. Passion and reverence, kindliness and lust, it allows two hearts to come closer, just for a few brief seconds in this eternity, so that they may physical enjoy love that took either days or decades to build up. Promiscuity is not a problem, unless it is done in an unsafe environment. then the problem disease will be upon those who were unsafe. this is but their own dilemma. but to create a child, without having a world ready for this child, is force this dilemma on to someone unable to understand it and unwilling to acknowledge to it.
Every creature on this planet is born with a brain and a mind in this brain. Like any brain, these minds will produce a various string of emotions: kindness and aggression, love and hate. Those emotions which instill an individual with depression or anger, they cannot be denied, no matter how devastating their effects are. The expression of love should never be denied. Holding another in the embrace of your warmth, in a shower of touches, lips touching every part — as emotions are arroused and desires are formed, sex usually becomes an inevitably, and to deny it is to deny everything humane and kindly in our Universe. it is a desecration of love’s sweet sentiments, embittered only by the limits of our natural world: we may touch, we may physically show another what love means, but we may only be one together in our hearts — we can believe that nothing will seperate us forever, only in our minds. Contraception, birth prevention, will allow men and women to engage it sex, be it promiscous or long-term, and enjoy what physical love means. this knowledge, this understanding of love as it exists in palms covering thighs, breath over neck — sweet touching in a storm of bliss — this knowledge is something that should be denied to no creature. no person should die not knowing what affection means — no person should live without some memories of passion emboddied in experience. Contraception will give to us the right to do as we like with each other, without the fear of STDs or pregnancy. Love is a valuable thing, perhaps most valuable of all. To allow it to wilt in our heart, grow gangreen and die, without experience, is maybe one of the greatest crimes.
With every social, political, or economical question, there is usually some talk of rights. of what right do people have to do something, or of what right do others have to deny them their hobbies and interests? The most cherished right on this planet is a person’s right to their mind, to think what thoughts they may, judge theories weighing evidence in a way they wish, and form their own conclusions. To read any book that catches their heart’s interest. After this comes a person’s right to their own body, to do with it what they wish, and inolve only those who are consenting and willing. if a person so decides to engage in sexual activity, in what right is it different than a person who decides to engage in watching a play, writing poetry, or humbly residing in nature’s serene abode? there is no difference, as these actions do not cause suffering, nor do they destroy anything. They only serve to enrich the very natural belief that intellectual pursuits can lead to the soul’s contentment — that inner beauty exists only so much as we know it to exist. To say that a man may not engage in sexual activity — to find a lover and bombard them with the affection built up over weeks of loneliness — is the same to say that a person may not travel through forests and grasslands in their never-ending quest to appease their need for beauty, or that every stanza of a poem is a sin against nature. let men and women have their rights, and do what they will with each other. They harm none in their own hobbies and pursuits. whatever claims as to their actions being disgust or vile are not up to the observer, but to the actor. To this end, I believe that men and women ought to be allowed the right to worry-free sex, with the aid of contraception, protecting their bodies, and those that are to come in the following years.
Like a screaching howl in a night camp, there will always be the argument that it is unnatural, that it wasn’t meant to be, that it is simply not right. Every sincere lover has had to suffer through these claims, and every grave marked with the blood of lovers not meant to be is a testiment to the beauty of truth and the reality of humanity. I will never travel through this world without these histories of people who lived and died by what they believed, only to be forgotten in today’s mass scurry to find something to fill the pain of meaninglessness. I will never hear a story of lovers, without instantly having thoughts of kindliness, respect, intimacy — there will never be memories of love without tears of longing — never a kiss given for affection that was forgotten. in this understanding of our minds, almost a completely different world from the one we must live in, we hear this argument, that sex with contraception is unnatural, that it breaks the laws of nature. I care not. Unnatural or natural, if an act brings two empathic hearts together, then I will stand by it. if by saving another’s life, or preventing another’s suffering, if by doing a humane and kind act, if by doing this I end up breaking a law of nature, I will hold no regrets, and my idea that hope is very real will not faulter. if it be natural for slavery to exist, in the human or animal world, in a pair of Nike shoes or in a McDonald’s meal, if it is a natural act to kill and maim, I will forever remain in an unnatural ideology, as I will stand by compassion and justice for a thousand years before I abandon them to some claim to naturality. so, cast your arguments, like throwing stones so they may sink into the ocean’s deep abyss. The lovers of the world will take no heed to what is natural or not. They will do what their hearts tell them, what they should do, and the intelligent ones will use contraception, irregardless of what social laws tell them. and love will survive beyond these petty rules, so that while our world goes on in the rat-race for wealth and property, the criminality of it all will slowly fade away, as does the world, while two lovers become their own world.
There is, in this matter of social and ethical consideration, an argument from the religious. The Catholic doctrine, for example, dictates that the sex organs were made for reproduction and not for pleasure. in all honesty, there are few things more foul than this: to believe in such an ugly god, that he must condemn acts of pleasure, joy, happiness, and warmth, on account of the purpose of organs. I’ve already given my opinion on whether or not it is natural or unnatural for contraceptives to be used: I don’t care — if an act puts a smile on the face of one soul in this fading Universe, then I cannot condemn it. Any person who endeavors to create happiness for those around them, is a person deserving of my admiration. The priests and clergy can speak for a thousand years on this matter, for all that I care. When the acts of love can be permitted without worry of pregnancy or disease — when it is no crime to express with your body what your heart believes — when it almost seems that the stars flicker even more brightly, when another’s touch reaches deep down, and it doesn’t take words to speak your soul — when this occurs, every humane person will celebrate and lovers in every land will have a reason to rejoice. with the invention of contraception came the expression of emotions which have been as old as the beginning of sentient life. Like every great revolution in culture which has approved humane ideals, religion has stuck its ugly head out of the shadows, and proclaimed that contraception is an abomination. this is but the very definition of treason to justice
Contraception needs no defense from religion, but I will give one: religion has been the defender of every cruel and malicious crime enacted on the innocent beings of this planet. it knows no race, no gender, no species, no family. it only knows how to exploit. it can be difficult to see how contraception is immoral from a Secularist view: it only works to prevent the sad reality of neglected and battered children. What can be said of a religion when it affirms all that disgusts our heart? little more can be said of it, other than it is revolting and merciless. I have argued for compassion and humanity in all regards of life, but when a religion opposes compassion and humanity, it is unworthy of devotion; in fact, it was quite unworthy of devotion from the moment it had no evidence to support itself with. there is no evidence to support the ideas of the supernatural, so I will not portion my soul off to the church just to suffice a dogma. The reason to believe in the gods does not exist — nor does my belief in such a being exist. this, though, is not the point. The fact is that contraception, by all objective and worldly consideration, is a good thing. but once religion grasps its sickly, pale hands around it, it becomes something vile and cruel. upon discovery, religion will villify and incriminate a source of inspiration and dreams. Religion will take art and masterpiece, and turn it into a vulgarity. if anyone needs evidence of this, simply take into consideration the human body. I can speak until the last human being is standing on the matters of religion’s iniquity, but the matter remains: religion is no authority on the matter of goodness, but rather, it is subject to the heart’s humane sentiments. Every time religion holds contraception as something to despise, it is one less reason to believe in the gods, and one more reason to admire free love for its champion ability to survive. if there is one religion I abide by, it is the religion of love, to which contraception is the patron saint.
People will engage in sexual activity with each other. it is simply their nature. and under no regard, will they ever be different, unless their hormones undergo great alterations. no force will ever dissuade a person that they desire sexual activity. since human beings live in our society, sex is only an inevitability. Providing contraception will allow for humans to engage in sexual activity in a safe environment, without worry to disease or pregnancy. Not only does it show respect for each other, but it also shows respect for the unborn. there are millions of children, if not billions, who exist in this world — and no person ever spoke positively of their coming into being, their parents never dreamed of what their child would be. these children are the unwanted children, and some thinkers have gone even so far as to say that their lives hold no meaning, have no worth. I will argue the position of a Humanitarian, and I will say this: every conscious being holds worth, so far as it exists, so long as it is capable of crying and laughing. that a person may go through life and enjoy their travels, their journey to discover who they are, and that one day they may look back on where they came and how they became who they are, and in looking back, they find not pure bliss nor unavenged crimes, but rather, a rightness in their being — a knowledge that they lived up to justice’s expectations, to the romantic truth that emotion is supreme. if a person can do this, then they have value. I could care less what their parents had intended, or unintended. The fact is this: this person exists now, and I will give them my respect, and hold to them the same obligations I hold to any other person, that they are to give the rights they afford for themselves to all who may feel.
A child who is born without the intentions of their parents is still a child, and I will never shun them for who they are. Many of my personal, close friends were mistakes, their own ancestry made up of rape victims and prostitutes. They are no less noble, no less kindly, and no less loyal. I cannot truthfully offer them a single complaint on their character. Similarly, there are many individuals who exist without the intention of their parents, and they continue to exist without any awareness of Capitalism’s onslaught on to our rights and the government’s never ending compaign to abolish Democracy. whether or not someone was born with the intention of their parents, it is irrelevant in their character. but this I will say, no child should live in the knowledge that they are no more than a mere mistake. if individuals are going to become parents, it ought to be under the conditions of purpose and not accident. a status quo of this world will read as follows: plague and famine ravage the continents, economic and political super powers continue their battle to gain wealth and power through the means of war and slavery, all the while the general populace is left feeling helpless and powerless, as these powers go on in their conscienceless search for gold and glory. To bring up a child in this world is but no simple task, and there will never be a time where the raising of another individual is effortless. but, to thoughtless bring a being into existence in this world, with the constant battle against the government and the struggle for the peoples’ right to Democracy, to throw in a helpless babe into this is but truly a crime, and I will offer no grievance to these mothers and fathers who never once thought about the future of their child, as it shall be behind the bars of society’s oppression, or behind the very real bars of prison.
Contraception, or any means of birth prevention, cannot be objectively labelled as immoral. use of contraception will simply prevent suffering in this world, by not bringing children into this world that we cannot support. The goal of contraceptives is not to eliminate the human species, but simply to allow for sex to occur between the willing, without worry to disease or STDs. if contraceptives are banned, then lovers will weep with each other, whereas they would have enjoyed their own bodies and the pleasures of one another. Though it may be written in every biology book that sex can be a source of great pleasure, we must not ignore what the psychology book speaks of it: that sex, physical affection, can be a great source of intimacy, of expression of emotion. When individuals are capable to speak with their soul, using their body as nothing more than an instrument to their mind, then we are truly living in a free world. and for a second, with our breath on the soft, tender skin of our beloved, all of the tyrannies and all of the suffering in the world seem to stop tugging at our spirit, and just for those few fleeting moments — which we will remember till the end of our days — we find peace and tranquility, as our heart is pushed closer to the warmth of another’s.
The principle behind acupuncture is to use needles to adjust bodily functions to prime levels. the Chinese are the most famous for using this technique, however many modern Western practitioners are known to use this to treat chronic disease. using needles is considered safe, but how do they do the procedure and what kind of benefits should you expect.
There are many diseases that people who practice acupuncture claim can treat. Some of the conditions can run from asthma, anxiety, constipation, and other ailments. most practicing professionals believe that unhealthy conditions are caused from unbalanced Qi flow. how well it controls the pain is the most researched of all the reasons for acupuncture. Acupuncture can cure migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, and arthritis. Acupuncture theory is also medically accepted and well researched. Researchers call this the gate control theory of pain, which states that needles stimulate nerves which blocks pain triggers.
You should understand that acupuncture is only to be supplemented with medical therapy. you should not discontinue medication or medical instructions over needle therapy. the primary care physician will make an evaluation after undergoing acupuncture in regards to decreasing other therapies. Acupuncture therapy can last anywhere from days to several months. it all depends upon how difficult the ailment is to cure. you should also speak with your acupuncturist regarding what result she expects and in what time-frame you should see them. most patients feel better after three or four sessions. however, certain conditions tend to get worse before improving so don’t give up.
Modern medicine now accepts today’s acupuncture because it has proven its worth time and time again. Today’s guidelines also make it very safe, effective, and can be repeated over and over again. it is a gift from ancient day that helps millions of people all the time.
What is electrolysis treatment?
Electrolysis treatment refers to the destruction of hair roots with an electric current. three types of electrolysis hair removal are:
1) Galvanic Electrolysis
A DC current passing through the needle causes a chemical reaction in the hair follicle which produces sodium hydroxide, also know as lye, which destroys the hair follicle.
2) Thermolysis Electrolysis
An AC current passing through the needle causes vibration in the water molecules surrounding the hair follicle which produces heat. (Similar to the principle behind a microwave oven.) The heat damages the hair follicle. This method is much faster but less reliable than galvanic electrolysis treatment. Thermolysis is also known as ‘short-wave radio frequency diathermy’.
3) Blend Electrolysis
This method tries to combine the benefits of the galvanic and thermolysis methods by passing an AC and a DC current through the needle at the same time. it is much quicker than the galvanic method.
How does electrolysis hair removal work?
Very fine metal probes are inserted into the hair follicle. a small electric current is then applied which destroys the hair root. Each hair has to be treated individually. (See item above for description of various electrolysis treatment methods.)
How much does electrolysis treatment cost?
Usually there is a rate per hour. Get an estimate of how many hours are required for your particular problem and then multiply it by the rate per hour. a cheap hourly rate does not necessarily mean lower cost if the electrolysis procedure takes longer than it should!
Quotations for electrolysis can vary from $25 to $100 per hour.
Is electrolysis painful?
This depends on the individual’s level of sensitivity. some describe the discomfort from electrolysis treatment as being similar to using tweezers. Others complain of excessive pain during electrolysis treatment. a qualified electrologist will be able to suggest methods for minimizing the discomfort.
How long does electrolysis take?
The time needed for electrolysis hair removal varies greatly from person to person. Factors such as the size of the area to be treated, the curvature of the hair follicle, the level of skin sensitivity, hormonal balance and heredity all have an effect.
Electrologist Fino Gior, author of Modern Electrology (see resource box below), gives these estimates:
- Upper Lip 4-10 hours
- Chin 2-12 hours
- Sideburns 4-8 hours
- Eyebrows 3-8 hours
- Underarms 4-12
- Arms 5-10 hours
- Bikini Line 8-16 hours
These estimates are based on averages taken in the U.S.a. and Canada at clinics performing electrolysis treatment treatment. They will vary from person to person and should only be taken as a rough guide.
Note: For 44 years Fino Gior has researched the Permanent Hair Removal Industry. during that time he has become a Consumer Advocate fighting for the welfare of the inquiring patient. His professional ability as a full time electrologist is well established all over the world. he received the highest and most prestigious honor in the profession, November 1985, the Charles E. Michel, M.D., Award, by the International Guild of Professional Electrologists. (Web site: electrolysis treatmentinformation.com. see resource box below)
What is the effect of electrolysis hair removal on the skin?
If the electrolysis treatment is performed by a fully qualified electrologist, the tissue surrounding the hair follicle should not be damaged. electrolysis treatment should therefore be safe when performed at a reputable clinic by trained personnel.
Obvious precautions to note when going for electrolysis: The electrologist should wear gloves and use disposable, pre-sterilized needles to minimize the risk of infection.
Temporary side effects from electrolysis treatment may include some redness and swelling, dryness and scabs.
If electrolysis hair removal is not carried out by professionals, there is the risk of permanent skin damage resulting in a scarring or pitting of the skin.
How long do the results last?
Electrolysis is often viewed as a permanent hair removal method. Once the hair root is destroyed, the hair will not grow back.
There are exceptions however. In some cases hair does regrow in places after electrolysis and clients need to return once or twice a year for a cleanup.
Hair can continue to grow in the underarms, pubic area and around the nipples during a woman’s reproductive years.
As level of expertise varies in different countries and even in some states in the U.S.a., it’s important to check the credentials of the individual performing the electrolysis treatment.
It is becoming increasingly popular exercise for stress relief and boosting self confidence.
It is a demonstration that people can overcome their fears by the power of their minds. if one can walk across a fire without being burned, they can do just about anything!
"Mind over matter" principle……….plus years of practice.
Bone quantity, more bone-building measures (bone) and bone grafts
If not enough bone is available, for example, after years of wearing time of a removable dental prosthesis , possibly normal-sized implant can not be used. Then either a smaller implant can be selected (for example, a shorter cylinder implant, a thin blade implant or a mini-implant or bone needed must be established by surgical measures appropriate). this can be either synthetic bone substitute material (such as tricalcium phosphate, TCP), the bone is similar to much happened, or by creating a closed cavity into which bone can grow then (regenerates), similar to an empty tooth socket after a tooth extraction (tooth extraction). in principle, bone tissue grows as well as to soft tissue. He needs because of its lower metabolic rate , however, much longer for it. (The complete bone regeneration in humans is about 10 years, while for example the regeneration of liver cells takes only about 6 months and the intestinal lining ( epithelium ) is already complete after 3 days)
Foreign material, and that includes the body’s own bone from other areas of the skeleton, for example, from the hip, behaves basically like synthetic material. it can therefore only as a placeholder act also because it first from the body (over a period of about one year) mined will also have before for this place in the jaw of the appropriate bone formed can body genetically.  Why even autologous bone and not converted is mined, is obvious: any type of tissue in animals and humans need for growth of cells messenger proteins, the growth and division of cells in the neighborhood cause. Mere supply of nutrients, as in bacteria ( prokaryotes ) results in humans and animals ( eukaryotes ) not to cell growth and cell proliferation. Therefore, it makes no sense if the idea of acceleration of growth after implantation of calcium tablets are given below. this calcium is considered surplus by the kidneys rapidly excreted.
Foreign materials and even autologous bone grafts also come from a body region in which the system of messenger proteins other recipient sites ( receptors ) to the neighboring cells (see signaling ). the graft sends so long as it lives, from messenger proteins, for which the neighborhood of the target region (where the jaw bone), no receptor has, and vice versa: the neighboring cells send out messengers proteins that graft no recipients found in  the graft is from the Receptor messenger system is coupled. until his death and the absorption passes but a relatively long time, so it is up to his disappearance (1-2 years) can serve as a placeholder at first. Unlike in totally unrelated transplants (kidney, heart, liver) from other people or animals but it is not known where the strong immunological response.
To this extent does the use of foreign material is always a delay of regrowth own bone. thus, if at all possible, should the first disturbing material not be used. only if enough time (about 1 year and more), can also be synthetic bone substitute material can be used as a placeholder.
A routinely used method for thickening of the bone layer in the posterior region of the maxilla is the sinus lift . this refers to a surgical method in which the mucous membrane of the maxillary sinus floor replaced and the resulting cavity with bone substitute material or naturally (conversion of the blood clot in native (mature) bone) is filled. Here, then, the implant can be used simultaneously or at a later date if the length required for the implant layer thickness is grown on bone. the shorter this case, the implant may be, the goal is reached faster. Therefore suitable for the sinus lift often short, but for horizontally oriented blade implants with low penetration. they are also the same, but stress-free (by removing the support posts) to the sinus lift in the jaw bone or the remaining bone layer in position to be related to, Titanium surface serves their micro porous roughened as the first major adhesive surface of bone cells so that new bone formation in this way also on the implant surface can proceed.
