My beautiful lady practitioners gather here let's talk.
Kkkkk I know there are days when you feel like slaying with those high heels👠👠 but once you have that ONE tooth extraction that brings you down to earth 😉.

We all have that pair of flat shoes or crocs in your office that you can easily slip in when things get hot kkkk.
Besides these flats🥿 🥿being comfortable and easy to run around in , during this Corona pandemic I have found my crocs to be very handy for infection control purposes. I no longer see patients in my home shoes, I find these crocs easy to disinfect all the time without fear of ruining them. They permanently stay at work for that purpose.
How do you ladies get around the issue of looking good , being comfortable and practising best infection control as you do your work ?? 🤓

An article by the Visionary - Rangarirai Makuku

💥A Special Edition of UQR💥

The pandemic of Covid19 presents such an important opportunity for the rest of the world to converge for the greater good. The Lancet commission in their vision paper(3) postulates a grand convergence whereby World Health Organization (WHO) member states make public health investments towards reducing avertable infectious, maternal, and child deaths down to universally low levels. A grand convergence on global health means looking at public health issues from a common angle. It means capacitating a non-aligned WHO and erect a network of resilient health systems around the globe.

✔️This week's theme is:
“The grand convergence: Covid19, an oil-soaked rag? Opinion”

4 things you should know about fluoride and why Dentists recommend it in your toothpaste:

1. Fluoride is a mineral found naturally in soil, plants and water. So you don’t have to be worried of any chemical additives.

2. Fluoride is a natural part of tooth enamel. It helps to keep your tooth healthy and strong.

3. Fluoride makes teeth more resistant to acid, and even helps to reverse early tooth decay.

4. Fluoride accumulates in areas where teeth have lost their mineral structure. Strengthening the enamel, a process known as remineralization.

A healthy dose of fluoride is recommended in your drinking water. But if it is recommended, fluoride treatment can be prescribed to you directly by dentist!

Why your tongue is white

The tongue is covered by papillae which can become inflamed and make your tongue look white. Causes of papillae inflammation include poor oral hygiene, dehydration, smoking, alcohol use, irritation from a sharp tooth and eating low roughage foods.

Some oral conditions may make your tongue look white. Among them is oral thrush. It is a fungal infection whereby the fungus grows over the surface of the tongue. It commonly occurs in people with a compromised immune system. This includes people taking steroids, cancer patients on chemotherapy, HIV positive patients, the very young and the elderly.

Oral leukoplakia is another condition that makes your tongue white. White patches which can be scraped off appear on the tongue. It may be harmless or progress to oral cancer.

Prolonged use of some medications may lead to your tongue turning white. An example is prolonged use of antibiotics which leads to oral thrush.

It is important to take note of any other changes that may occur on your tongue and seeking treatment during the early stages. These may include an ulcer on your tongue, your tongue getting bigger, your tongue developing ridges or becoming smooth, a change in colour of the tongue and a burning sensation. They may be harmless or a sign of vitamin deficiency, an underlying autoimmune condition or viral infection or cancerous.

Your tongue is an important part of your oral health and should be taken care of.

Pregnancy is a unique period which is characterised by physiological changes which may adversely affect oral health. Oral health should be maintained during pregnancy and through a woman’s lifespan. Maintaining good oral health may have a positive effect on cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other disorders and the general health of the unborn baby.
Pregnancy may make women more prone to periodontal (gum) disease and cavities.
Pregnant women may be at risk of developing cavities due to changes in behaviors, such as eating habits and oral hygiene habits.
Due to hormonal changes pregnant women may have gingivitis a condition when the gums become red and swollen from inflammation that may be aggravated by changing hormones during pregnancy.
If gingivitis is not treated, the bone that supports the teeth can be lost, and the gums can become infected leading to tooth mobility and eventually tooth loss; a condition termed Periodontis.
Periodontitis has also been associated with poor pregnancy outcomes, including preterm birth and low birth weight hence the importance and emphasis on good oral hygiene habits during pregnancy.

Preventive, diagnostic and restorative dental treatment is safe throughout pregnancy and is effective in improving and maintaining oral health.

Oral health care tips for the elderly

Typical aging patient’s baseline health state can be complicated by comorbid conditions (e.g., hypertension, diabetes mellitus) and physiologic changes associated with aging.
Older adults may regularly use several prescription and/or over-the-counter medications, making them more vulnerable to medication errors, drug interactions or adverse drug reactions.

Dental conditions associated with aging include dry mouth (xerostomia), root and coronal caries, and periodontitis; patients may show increased sensitivity to drugs used in dentistry, including local anesthetics and analgesics.
In these difficult times of Covid 19 it is difficult and risky for the elderly to move around and seek oral health care from the dental team hence the importance of practicing good oral hygiene at home.
