Blood-borne viruses (BBVs)

Blood-borne viruses (BBVs) are viruses that some people carry in their blood and can be spread from one person to another. Those infected with a BBV may show little or no symptoms of serious disease, but other infected people may be severely ill. You can become infected with a virus whether the person who infects you appears to be ill or not – indeed, they may be unaware they are ill as some persistent viral infections do not cause symptoms. An infected person can transmit (spread) blood-borne viruses from one person to another by various routes and over a prolonged time period.

The most prevalent BBVs are:

a) human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)- a virus which causes acquired immunodeficiency virus (AIDS), a disease affecting the body’s immune system;

b) hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C;

c) BBVs causing hepatitis, a disease affecting the liver.

The Benefits of Sunshine & Vitamin D

The Benefits of Sunshine & Vitamin D
There are countless benefits of sunshine and vitamin D. Research has shown that sunshine, in particular, helps us sleep better, feel better, and may even help us lose weight. But it’s the power of vitamin D that we get from the sunshine that truly makes your dentist in Strongsville happy. Some ways that vitamin D helps our teeth and our bodies include:

Stronger Teeth – Without vitamin D, our bodies aren’t able to absorb calcium properly, and without calcium, we aren’t able to build strong bones or teeth. This makes both calcium and vitamin D an essential duo for the health of our smiles and our bodies.
Less Tooth Decay – Stronger teeth tends to mean less tooth decay, at least that was the thought behind all of the research that studied the connection between vitamin D and decay. The results of these studies suggest that those who get an adequate amount of vitamin D have a reduced risk of tooth decay. One study even found that getting enough vitamin D can lower the risk of decay by 50%.
Better Immune System – Study after study shows a positive correlation between vitamin D and a strong, more effective immune system. While this connection between vitamin D and the immune system is complicated and complex, there’s really only one thing you need to know. Vitamin D helps regulate and balance the immune system so it’s prepared to fight off germs.

Vitamin D

Getting some Vitamin D💙💙

Vitamin D plays a key role in promoting dental health and helping prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Vitamin D is crucial for building healthy bones, as it allows your digestive system to absorb calcium from your diet. Calcium is the raw material that—with phosphorus—creates the bony structure that makes up tooth enamel.

We are all made unique and so too are our teeth in shape and shade. When whitening teeth and sculpting dental restorations clinicians use dental shade guides to ensure a perfect choice of colour for the patient.Tooth shade is important for individual presentation and first impressions because our teeth are visible when we smile. White polished teeth look fresh and clean, while stained and discoloured teeth can appear unsightly. Dentists strive to provide patients with dentistry options to improve their health and smiles.
