“Maiksi lang ang buhay.”

This is what Lloyd Cadena told Kimpoy Feliciano in what turned out to be one of their final conversations ever.

On Facebook, Kimpoy shared screencaps of their messages to each other, and said that Lloyd had wanted to become a dentist once the quarantine was lifted.

    

The two internet celebrities were talking about their dream careers; Kimpoy said wanted to become a pilot, while Lloyd said he always wanted to become a dentist.

“Aral tayo!” Lloyd said. “Mag-eenroll ako if ever na buhay pa ako after this ECQ.”

“Gusto ko maging dentista. ‘Yon talaga ang gusto kong course,” he added.

He then encouraged Kimpoy to follow his dreams of becoming a pilot as well.

“Go for it! Habang may panahon pa. Maiksi lang ang buhay. Dapat gawin natin lahat ng gusto natin,” he said. “Search for your purpose.”

The California mom, Bhakta, lost her struggle with postpartum depression and died by suicide in July, said her family.

“Reading her story just — it just broke my heart,” said Dr. Desai. “It felt so real. It felt like I was reliving all of the experiences that I had postpartum.”

One of the most recent TikTok beauty trends sees teens rubbing bleach straight on their teeth with a cotton bud, in an attempt to make them whiter.

In one such video, which has received more 15 million views, a teenager explains she buys hydrogen peroxide on its own, as it’s the main ingredient in whitening strips.

In the clip, she applies the hydrogen peroxide to her teeth with a cotton bud and explains that she stopped doing this after four days as the results were so ‘good’. 

Since the TikTok videos, it’s been reported there’s been a huge spike in sales for hydrogen peroxide.

Sorry, this video isn’t available any more.

However, a dentist has warned that this TikTok trend can cause serious damage to young people’s teeth.

Dr Kunal Patel of Love Teeth Dental Practice in Surrey tells Metro.co.uk: ‘Applying hydrogen

Less than half of adults in England were seen by an NHS dentist over the last two years, according to new data.

Figures from NHS Digital have shown that within a 24-month period, up to the end of February, only 49.7% of adults received any dental treatment.

Within the same time period, only 59% – less than two-thirds – of children were seen by a dentist.

Dental practices were forced to close for several months due to the coronavirus pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic led to the practices closing in March, which resulted in a fall in numbers visiting dentists, however overall attendance was said to have been “in a bad place” even before lockdown.

Some 21.01 million adult patients were seen for NHS dental treatment in the 24 months to the end of June, down 876,000 compared with the 24 months to the end of February.

Head Of Rutgers Dental School: It’s Safe To See The Dentist Again

jhon pablo

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — While New Jersey residents have cautiously started going to hair salons, outdoor restaurants and doctor’s appointments again, many are still reluctant to see one person in particular: The dentist.

The American Dental Association said they expect dental revenues to be down by as much as 40 percent by the end of 2020. And as recently as two weeks ago, the American Dental Association said they “respectfully yet strongly disagree” with advice from the World Health Organization, telling people to avoid routine dental care due to coronavirus risk.

Cecile Feldman, the dean of the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark, said she thinks seeing a dentist is actually low risk according to current knowledge of the virus.

She also clarified that the World Health Organization recommends continuing routine care except in hot spots where there is “intense uncontrolled community transmission” — which isn’t the case in

Bizarre moment grandad who’s never been to dentist has teeth yanked out with PLIERS by work pals

jhon pablo

THIS is the bizarre moment a grandad-of-three who claims he’s never been to a dentist gets his teeth yanked out with pliers by work pals.

Machine operator Phil Bailey has worked on building sites up and down the country so never registered with a local dentist.

Whenever the grandad’s tooth starts to hurt or cause him pain, he just asks a colleague to tear it out.

The 58-year-old’s unconventional dental procedures have been caught many times on camera.

Most recently, Phil took matters into his own hands on Monday when he handed a fellow builder a pair of pliers to tackle his aching molar.

In the footage, Phil, from Castleford,

Initially, the police said that the young female doctor practicing at a private hospital in Clifton had allegedly committed suicide by shooting herself at her home in Defence on Aug 18.

Later, the police booked her friends — including Junaid Khan, Waqas Hasan, Dr Irfan Qureshi along with two others — under relevant sections of the law.

When the matter came up before the judicial magistrate (South), the IO produced detained suspect Dr Irfan Qureshi to seek his physical remand.

Aging for Amateurs: During COVID-19, it’s still important to visit the dentist | Columnists

jhon pablo

Four weeks ago, I wrote a column on places you won’t see me during the COVID-19 pandemic. One place that was conspicuously absent was the dentist. I hadn’t done enough research to comment on the issue of whether to seek dental care in this difficult time, but I believe I have now.

After reviewing the American Dental Association and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention websites and talking with several local dentists, including my own family dentist, Dr. Keith Kirkland, I’m comfortable recommending regular visits for preventive care (cleaning and evaluation for tooth and gum problems) every six months, as usual.



Aging for Amateurs: Where you won’t see me during the pandemic

Of course, emergency care for dental trauma or severe pain is also recommended when needed. Talk to your dentist if you have particular concerns with visiting.

You will likely find your dentist’s office looking a little different to allow for social distancing in the waiting room

Polymers prevent potentially hazardous mist during dentist visit

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago couldn’t stop thinking about the spinning, vibrating tools in a dentist’s office that turn water into mist and send it flying into the air. If that mist contains a virus or some other pathogen, it is a health hazard for dentists and patients.


In a paper published this week in Physics of Fluids, Alexander Yarin and his colleagues discovered that the forces of a vibrating tool or dentist’s drill are no match for the viscoelastic properties of food-grade polymers, such as polyacrylic acid,
