The Importance of Dental Cleaning

I had my annual dental cleaning last Saturday. The cost of the procedure has increased from PHP 600 to PHP 700. Darn.

Dental cleaning is important for the general health. It can help fight against dental and medical problems, like gum disease, bone loss, and strokes, among others.

Dental cleaning procedure is also useful in screening for oral cancer. It can also help avoid losing your teeth as you grow older. And of course, it can prevent bad breath.

Anyway, I never fail to visit my orthodontist for my annual dental cleaning because I do not want to wear false teeth (dentures) when I grow old.

Although dental cleaning should be done twice a year, I can only afford to have it done once a year. However, because of the de-mineralization in my two molars, my orthodontist advised me to have my dental cleaning twice a year and undergo fluoridation. It is a process of applying fluoride gel over the teeth. It strengthens the teeth, thereby, avoiding building up of plaque.

Dental cleaning is painless and the smooth feeling is wonderful.

Can Green Tea Cause Hives?
As of this writing, I am enduring the itchiness brought by the hives, which usually disappear later in the day, on my legs and my back. I have already applied Katinco, a chinese ointment, to alleviate the itchy feeling. I am not sure how I got this but I postulate that it is caused by green tea that I have been drinking since the holidays.

I know that green tea is good for the body because of its high-level of antioxidants. That’s why I am taking two glasses of Lipton green tea each day. This routine started during the holidays. I didn’t have a problem with it until last week.

I suspect that green tea is the culprit of my hives as it is the latest “item” introduced to my diet. I have made my research on the web regarding green tea’s ability to cause hives. It turned out that some people have also experienced itchy bumps caused by drinking green tea.

I still have to verify my assumption with my dermatologist this week.

Benefits of Green Tea
My dieting was temporarily cancelled for the last two weeks because of the holidays. I was tempted to eat food that I should not be devouring as it could hamper my health. But how can I resist its delectable taste, like lechon? So, in order to help my body get rid of the toxins incorporated in the “holiday food,” I bought green tea and drank one to two cups a day.

Green tea is no longer a stranger to health-conscious individuals as it offers numerous health benefits. Some of them are listed below:

Green tea lowers the LDL (bad cholesterol) level in the blood.
It boosts immune system.
It relieves body from stress and fatigue.
It enhances metabolism.
It eliminates the free radicals in the body system.

Although green tea can comes in different forms, experts recommend drinking “fresh” tea. Consuming instant teas will only provide little health compounds. Also, experts recommend letting the tea leaves to steep in the water for 4 to 5 minutes before sipping it.

As for me, I still continue to drink green tea every day though the holidays were over and parties just ended.
