DREAM AND HEALTH

One-third of our lives was spent asleep. While we sleep the body recovers physically and mentally. However, we do not pay enough attention to this very important phase of our lives.

Dr. Alex Lechin is one of the pioneers in the specialization of Problems of Sleep. He explained that sleeping is an active and non-passive process, during which the central nervous system and the body recover. Doctor always talks about the phases of sleep, what are they? Sleep has the Non-REM phase and the REM (rapid eye movement) phase.

The non-rem phase has three stages: I-Light sleep; II-Deep sleep and III-Sueno Delta where the growth hormone and other hormones are produced. Also, neurotransmitters are regenerated. The first two stages are composed of light and deep sleep slow waves. During this early stages the body functions reach their lesser activity and this is accompanied by the segregation of hormones that produce restoration of the tissues and organs.

The second stage is the REM (Rapid Eye Movement): during this stage we sound. And that is when memory and learning are consolidated. Doctor, how do we make sure we complete all phases of sleep? You should sleep seven to nine hours a day running, without interruption. To complete all the regenerative phases of sleep. By interrupting sleep or not being able to sleep the necessary hours we do not complete the recovery of body and mind.

And what happens then? The body needs to complete these phases daily. If not, the lack of sleep degenerates into endless diseases and complications such as: Increased appetite that can lead to obesity, cardiovascular, immunological, gastric, mental problems, hypertension, increases cortisol production, lack of energy and the non-production of growth hormone that is what keeps us young and very important for children. Lack of sleep has also been attributed to road accidents. Doctor Lechin, how do we do to sleep well and fulfill all these stages of sleep? In a world where everyone complains of not being able to sleep.

First it is important that people plan their lives to sleep eight hours a day. To sleep is important to have a sleep hygiene. You must lie down at the same time every day and get up at the same time. Have a repeat routine before bed every night. You should not do night exercises, you should not take caffeine. Do not use the bed to read, work or watch television. The bed should be used only for two things. If in spite of all this the person does not get to sleep or feels tired during the day, it should rule out that he has problems or diseases of the dream. Such as: Sleep apnea, parasomnia, narcolepsy, somnambulism, depression or others.

For this, consult a sleep disease specialist. Dr. Alex Lechin specializes in respiratory diseases, intensive care, sleep disorders and internist. Practice at Hermann Memorial since 1994.

EVERY TIME MORE THE SCIENCE ADVANCES ARE ALLOWING THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO REJUVENATE WITHOUT THE NEED TO GO THROUGH THE KNIFE.

More and more the advances of science are allowing it to be possible to rejuvenate without having to go through the knife. Radio Frequency is the new technique that improves the condition of the skin and also improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment is ideal for all people. But the best results are seen in people between the ages of 30 and 50, when signs of vexing begin to appear. Also, it is effective on light and dark skin.

Radio Frequency emits hot waves to the dermis, which is the deepest layer of the skin, without damaging the epidermis, emitting heat to the muscles and all layers of the skin. This heat stimulates the production of collagen, which causes the skin to contract. The final result, which can be observed immediately or in 24 hours, is a brighter and more tight skin, as well as an obvious reduction of the bags and wrinkles. These results improve even more with the passage of the weeks, when the increase of the production of collagen improves to daily the condition of the skin.

Radio Frequency is a “non-invasive” procedure. It can be done practically as a skin cleansing routine. This takes half to an hour. Like a facial the radiofrequency can leave the face a little red. But you can go back to regular activities and even work out of treatment. However, there are people who experience bloating, this usually lasts 24 hours and some people can last up to a week.

What is recommended is to use sunscreen after Radio Frequency. Also, sunbathing or tanning beds should be avoided for two weeks after treatment. Radio Frequency does not hurt. The only thing that feels is a little warm. But this should not be harmful or painful. If the temperature of the appliance is very high, inform the person who is giving the treatment. Radio Frequency should be performed in six to ten treatments over a period of 6 to 8 weeks. Then a treatment should be done at the maintenance month. Although Radio Frequency improves the overall appearance of the skin of the face, the areas where the results are most impressive are the following: The forehead, in addition to seeing the skin tighter, eyebrows are raised, which offers a youthful appearance .

The appearance of the lower part of the eyes improves by removing the bags and raising the cheeks. Also, it is noted on the cheeks closing the pores. In the area of ​​the mouth and jaw the skin is tightened avoiding what is called the sad face. And the best part is the improvement of the neck, correcting Gallina’s neck. Another of the positive aspects of Radio Frequency is the improvement of cellulite. But this is the subject for the next article.

DUCT TREATMENT IS A PROCEDURE FOR CONSERVING NATURAL DENTURE.

Duct treatment is a procedure that is performed to preserve the natural denture, when the pulp or root of the tooth or tooth becomes infected or inflamed. Nowadays the specialists do everything possible to save the patients’ natural teeth. As the loss of teeth causes movement of the other teeth around them and diminishes the function of these.

This procedure is performed by specialists called Endodontists. Dr. Mauricio Ceballos is one of the most recognized specialists in the field. Doctor Who are Endodontists? We are specialized dentists to perform routine cases or much more complex procedures that go until endodontic surgery. We are also trained to diagnose oral or facial pains that have been difficult to pinpoint.

When is a root canal treatment needed? It is performed on teeth with very deep cavities, which have received several procedures, which have a fracture or even a blow to the tooth can cause damage to the pulp. When the inflammation or infection is not treated, it can cause pain and even an abscess. During the procedure the root of the tooth is treated, which contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue that feed the tooth during its formation. But once it has matured it can survive without the pulp, because the surrounding tissues continue to feed the tooth.

What happens during endodontics? During the procedure the inflamed or infected pulp is removed, cleaned and the inside of the tooth is prepared, sealed and sealed. The treatment today lasts about an hour, something that was obtained in several visits. Then the patient should return to his dentist for a crown or other restoration to protect the tooth and give it its full function.

Is the procedure painful? Endodontics are actually performed to relieve existing pain in the tooth. But because of the modern techniques and use of anesthesia these usually do not cause discomfort. Some patients may have sensitivity to the tooth during the first few days after treatment, especially if they had pain or infection before the procedure. For this we prescribe painkillers or other medications.

When Is Endodontic Surgery Performed? Endodontic surgery is performed when inflammation or infection persists in the bone area around the apex of the tooth after Endodontic treatment. Then we perform an apicectomy or resection of the root tip. There the gum is cut close to the tooth to expose the bone tissue and the infected tissue is removed, also the tip of the root and the duct is sealed with a filling.

Can you always save your teeth? In some not because the ducts are not accessible, the root is severely fractured, the tooth does not have sufficient bone support or the tooth can not be restored. In these cases the tooth must be removed and replaced with an implant or bridge. This requires surgery and is more expensive. Insurance generally covers procedures. Dr. Mauricio Ceballos is an Endodontist and holds a degree in Intravenous Sedation. He has been practicing fifteen years since his beginnings, always in the city of Houston. Www.ezrootcanal.com
