More people are visiting the dentist for cracked teeth post COVID-19 lockdown

Dentists are facing an unintended consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic as more people visit their clinics with cracked teeth.

Since reopening her clinic in June, Dr. Sura Hadad said about 50 patients have come to get treated for teeth fractures or jaw pain.

There are several causes for these issues, but increased stress is one of the most prevalent reasons post-COVID-19. Elevated stress levels may lead people to grind their teeth unconsciously when they’re awake or during sleep.

“Some people (clench or grind their teeth) when they’re driving, exercising, or when they’re watching TV or working on the computer,” said Hadad.

For Dr. Jainin Wolfe, a dentist in Oxford, grinding was a problem many patients faced while her clinic was shut down. Wolfe said she also faced the problem herself.

Alynn Botti has beat out hundreds of women so far to advance to the quarter-finals.

Alynn works out six days a week to stay fit, and more importantly decompress from her stressful job at Community Regional Medical Center, where she works with COVID -19 patients.

She said lifting weights has kept her balanced throughout the pandemic and emotionally sane.

“It’s just something hard to watch someone struggle with. It’s just a terrible disease and being able to come home and work out – I feel like it’s better for myself, it’s better for my family, because it’s such a good stress reliever,” she says.

Alynn works graveyard shifts, but still manages to stay motivated to workout

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of people are suddenly rethinking the long-held tradition of blowing out candles on birthday cakes — but a Florida-based dentist has designed a handy invention that’s here to help

With new awareness of just how easily germs can spread from a person’s mouth, the idea of eating something that another person just blew on seems mildly gross at best — and horrifically dangerous at worse.

But just abandoning the tradition seems like a loss, too, so Billy Kay, a dentist from Boca Raton, is launching the Top It Cake Shield: a clear plastic shield that perfectly fits cakes and holds candles so kids can still make their birthday wishes.

Honor Watch ES Is A Luxury Budget Fitness Tracker With One Missing Feature

Honor has announced a new fitness tracker that looks like a smartwatch. The Honor Watch ES is its version of the Huawei Watch Fit, which has the character of a stretched Apple Watch.

Only European pricing has been revealed to date. The Honor Watch ES costs 99 Euro, and will be available from September 7. This suggests it may cost around $110-120 in the US.

Highlights are clear to see. The Honor Watch ES has a large, colourful screen for its cost, far outstripping the relatively basic Fitbit Inspire HR. And having had the chance to wear it for an hour, I can tell you the display looks far less odd than it may appear in promotional images. This thing looks like an upscale smartwatch.

Just one part is missing, an element present in Honor’s Watch Magic 2

S.I. boutique fitness studio owners to file lawsuit Wednesday against de Blasio, NYC

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The owners of the Max Challenge — which has three locations on Staten Island — are the lead plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit being filed on Wednesday against Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York City to allow boutique fitness studios to open amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, said the lawyer for the case.

The lawsuit, which will be filed Wednesday in Richmond County Supreme Court, St. George., is being led by Roseann and Anthony Camarda, who own three popular fitness studios — in Grasmere, Woodrow and Great Kills — under the Max Challenge franchise on Staten Island, said James G. Mermigis, an attorney with the Syosset, N.Y.-based Mermigis Law Group, who will be filing the case.

“There is absolutely no reason that big box gyms can be open and we can’t,” said Roseann Camarda, who said her membership has been reduced from 1,500 to

People experiencing hair loss could benefit from a trip to the dentist

Anyone experiencing sudden patches of hair loss could benefit from a trip to the dentist – according to university research.

Alopecia areata, which affects millions in the UK, is an auto-immune disorder where the body produces antibodies that attack the hair follicles.

The hair loss is often in small patches, which are sometimes barely noticeable. But if these patches join up they can become more obvious and lead to anxiety and loss of self confidence.

Also known as localised alopecia, it is estimated to plague around 65,000 people in the UK and can appear at any age – with 80 per cent of cases surfacing before the age of 40.

Stress is thought to be one one potential trigger, but it appears tooth infections could also be a cause according to research carried out by the University of Granada in Spain.
