Good Morning on this Saturday after the Christmas excitement….now we wait for the New Years Party…..and dread the day after……
I was dragged along for a shopping spree after the holiday….no I was not going without protest but as usual my better half won that argument….
Any way we were in this major store and a young lady was standing at a mirror in the “Beauty” department hold Kleenex next to her mouth and smiling…..holy crap! I realize she was doing that thing where self-centered little turds are comparing their tooth color to that of a tissue (the tissue test)…..it was a source of amusement for me….I was chastised for enjoying others stupidity….and then I read something that I wish I had when this poor young lady was so concerned…..
As usual I attempt to be an FYI blog on the weekends….trying to get away from the mind numbing news of the week….on that note…..
We Americans are worshipers of youth and beauty……we have our fad diets, our addiction to exercise machines that become clothes racks after a couple of months, always looking for that magic pill to turn us into that perfect image of youth and beauty……one of the biggest markets is that of dental care…….
OMG! The products that are now available……if you are not sure which one you need then it will take an hour or more to go through the retail offerings to find that special product.
There is a new report about something new on the horizon….
In a recent study, researchers find a new product can use proteins to rebuild tooth enamel and treat dental cavities.
The new biogenic dental products can—in theory—rebuild teeth and cure cavities without costly and uncomfortable treatments.
Cavities are more than just a nuisance. Dental cavities affect nearly every age group and are accompanied by serious health concerns, according to the World Health Organization.
Additionally, direct and indirect costs of treating dental cavities and related diseases are a huge economic burden for people and health care systems.
Although tooth decay is relatively harmless in its earliest stages, once the cavity progresses through the tooth’s enamel, serious health concerns arise.
I am an old fart…..so trying to look younger or more beautiful is just not that damn important anymore…..but that is me.
Now time for some more rest and some french bread, cheese and OJ….OJ? Yep cannot decide which wine I want on this day….so go with OJ for now…..hope all have a good day and I will be back for more stuff.
