Your dental health can often fall to the wayside, but big problems can arise if you ignore your mouth.
Here are five easily recognizable signs you need to see your dentist:The most obvious point: You have pain. When you experience a toothache, it can seem like your world is consumed by it. Even then, many people try and “wait it out” before going to see a dentist. Do not fall into this habit – even if the pain subsides, the cause of the pain could still remain.
Bleeding or swollen gums. Let’s address bleeding gums first: does any other part of your body bleed when you rub it or gently scratch it? No. Neither should your gums. If this is happening to your gums, you may have an issue with inflammation, which can lead to serious periodontal problems later. If your gums are swollen, you may be experiencing an even more advanced state of inflammation. See your dentist as soon as possible if this is happening to you. The good news for you is that we have a periodontist on staff to treat these types of issues specifically!
If you start noticing that hot, cold or sweet foods and drinks are causing you pain, call your dentist. Plaque build-up, cavities or problematic fillings can all cause sensitivity in your teeth, which need to be addressed by a professional!
Bad breath. Have you noticed that your friends keep a safe distance when they’re talking to you? You may want to stop by MFD for a quick check-up. You might have halitosis. Caused by a large variety of things, such as, but not limited to, diet, sinus infections or gum disease, halitosis can make your breath smell veryAlthough things like mouthwash may mask it temporarily, there is a larger problem that your dentist can help you solve.
Pregnancy or other medical conditions you’re being treated for (such as radiation, chemotherapy, hormone replacement, etc.). Many medical conditions, as well as pregnancies, can cause big changes in your hormone levels or in your body’s chemistry in general (especially with heavy doses of medication). For example, gingivitis is common during pregnancies and periodontal problems during pregnancy have been associated with lower birth weights. Avoid unplanned dental emergencies by coming into the dentist more frequently.
You should get in to see a dentist as soon as possible if any of these apply to you, but we must also highlight the fact that just because you’re not experiencing any problems, doesn’t mean you should skip your bi-annual visits. These signs you should see your dentist allows us to keep your mouth healthy and to establish a good baseline for your oral health!

ALLERGIC RHINITIS AND HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT
Alergic Hay fever [allergic rhinitis] is an inflammatory condition, which affects the mucous membranes of the nose, throat, palate, sinuses and eyes. It is caused mainly by grass and other plant pollens in the air and is exacerbated by dusts, chemicals and other atmospheric pollutants. It occurs when your immune system overreacts to harmless substances you breathe in, like pollen, dust, mold or pet dander. This overreaction releases inflammatory chemicals that cause symptoms that include a stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, congestion, and itchy, watery eyes There may also be a feeling of tightness and wheezing in the chest. Homoeopathy is a very gentle system of medicine, which relies on the principle of ‘Let likes be cured by likes’. This means a substance that would produce symptoms in a healthy person can treat those same symptoms when given in a tiny and harmless amount to a sick person. Homeopathy is a system of medicine which is based on treating the individual with highly diluted substances given in mainly tablet form, which triggers the body’s natural system of healing. Homeopathy2 seeks to stimulate a self-healing response from the person’s own vitality Homeopathy does this through potentised3remedies that closely match the symptoms of the person’s disease and are free of toxic side-effects.

Awareness is 90% of the cure”, and a healing rebound is set in motion: homeopathy ultimately provokes one’s deeply innate self-correcting and self-healing potentials, resulting in improved mood, energy and sleep, as well as progressive resolution of particular physical complaints.
Homeopathy The Safe Medicine
Homeopathy is safe and does not have any side effects. This has been known for a long time to the public. But the scientific community would often question this belief. As an answer to the question of the scientific community, an extensive study done by the European Council of Classical Homeopaths has confirmed this belief and with hard proof of the same. ECCH (European Council of Classical Homeopathy) did an extensive research over a period of time about the various aspects of the homeopathic medicines, their preparation, administration and efficacy. The study concluded that when it comes to the production or manufacturing of the homeopathic medicines, they are manufactured in such a manner that they do not contain any toxic matter or any contamination. The specific nature of the medicines themselves and the research that we have considered seems at this stage to support the claim that homeopathic treatment has a very high level of safety, particularly in comparison with conventional medicinal products’.
Homeopathic The Economical Medicines
Although the homeopathic medicines are prepared from different sources like plants, flowers, minerals and animal sources, the method of preparation is similar. While potentising a medicine, a drop of the basic medicine is mixed with 99 drops of alcohol and succussed according to the homeopathic principle of potentisation. The major ingredient that goes into the medicine is that of pure medicine grade alcohol which is not that expensive. A very big advantage of this method is that the cost of the medicine remains well within control and the benefit accrues to the end user or the patient.
At the same time, since the homeopathic treatment is mostly delivered through individual doctors, the infrastructure required is minimal. Ultimately, the cost of this infrastructure too has to be recovered from the end user-the patient. That is why the homeopathic system of medicine is very economical to the patient.
Homeopathy is not Slow
A common perception that people have about Homeopathy is that it is slow to act. In my almost 35 years of clinical dealing with patients, I have heard this umpteen times from people that they think that Homeopathy is slow. Such a belief is often shared by people who come to me for the first time, having been referred to me by one or the other patient of mine who has been cured of some ailment and has immense faith in the homeopathic system as well as my ability. It is therefore necessary to understand some basic things about human body, the body’s immunity or the defence system, the mode of action of homeopathic medicines and the nature of diseases.Homeopathic medicines take a bit time to cure diseases, but it surely do.
Homeopathy strengthen the Immunity
The homeopathic medicines act as an aid to the natural immunity of the body. They help in strengthening the innate healing powers of the body and let the body cure itself. If there are some bacteria or viruses in the body, the homeopathic medicines help in activating and strengthening the various immunity mechanisms that in turn contain the infection on their own.
This is in direct contrast to the allopathic system of medicine, which assumes that the natural immunity of the body has failed to do its duty and needs to be replaced with an artificial defense mechanism. Antibiotics are prescribed indiscriminately, which inherently works on the assumption that the immunity of the body has completely failed to contain the bacteria. Hence some medicines need to be supplied that will go and just kill the bacteria or do the duty in place of the natural healing mechanism of the body. As a corollary, a lot of healthy bacteria are also killed which form the natural fauna of the gut. Also, over a period of time and with frequent or rather indiscriminate use of antibiotics, the bacteria become resistant to these antibiotics. It has often been seen that antibiotics are prescribed even when it is clear that the patient is suffering from a viral disease. Such abuse of antibiotics, instead of strenghening the body’s immunity, leaves it weak and helpless.
We have thousand of theories on how exactly homeopathic medicine works. As supported in major clinical trials and in practice, it is believed to be working by stimulating body’s own healing mechanisms. For example in case of diseases which are caused by infection, it seems to be working by stimulating the production of antibodies, defense blood cells, etc. In cases of immune diseases, it seems to be working by correcting the immune mechanism. In case of painful conditions, by activating body’s anti-pain mechanisms. Similarly, its action must be on the lines of being antispasmodic, anti-allergic, immuno-modulatory, anti-inflammatory, hormone stimulatory, anti-carcinogenic, etc.
