The Connection Between Oral Health & Overall Health by Meredi Wagner-Hoehn - 26 Apr 2017 14:10


[[html]]Oral health affects people in a multitude of ways. Some are basic lifestyle changes; others are detrimental to physical health. Here are some ways in which your general health and your dental health are connected.<br><br>How Your Health Affects Your Teeth
<br><br>The immune system is what protects our bodies from disease. A strong immune system defends a person's health, while a weak immune system allows infection to fester. If you suffer from a weak immune system, you're much more likely to suffer from dental infections and oral illnesses. Your kids' dental health may require particular overseeing to make sure they're brushing as thoroughly as their immune system warrants.
<br><br>If you take drugs for any reason, discuss the side effects with your doctor. If dry mouth results from the medication, pay special attention to your oral hygiene. Dental decay can arise from dry mouth, as bacteria flourish in this environment.
<br><br>How Your Oral Health Affects Your Lifestyle
<br><br>Poor oral health affects not only peoples' appearances, but from that it can lower self-esteem. One frequent cause for this is stained teeth, from smoking or drinking dark liquids, for example. A professional, in-house teeth whitening at your local San Antonio dental clinic can bump that confidence tremendously.
<br><br>Unhealthy teeth can also make it difficult to chew food. For example, if your teeth are developing cavities, they feel an increased sensitivity, making it difficult to eat much less chew.
<br><br>Even if you have healthy teeth, if you suffer from an oral health disorder such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, you may have difficulty sleeping. TMJ involves the joints of your jaw and it can cause severe, consistent pain.
<br><br>Diabetes & Oral Health
<br><br>If you are diabetic, oral hygiene is particularly important. An oral infection can affect blood-sugar levels, introducing problems in keeping your diabetes in line.
<br><br>Gum Disease & Oral Health
<br><br>America's oral health is being attacked by gum disease, and San Antonio is no exception. Periodontal (gum) disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. It increases the risk of additional physical issues, such as heart attacks and strokes. Pregnancy and oral health are inextricably tied in this way; gum disease allows oral bacteria to travel to the fetus via blood, potentially causing premature births and low-weight births. Periodontal bacteria can also migrate to the lungs as you breathe, causing respiratory disease.
<br><br>Oral health education is extremely important to maintaining a healthy smile and healthy body. For further oral health products and oral health services in the San Antonio area, call your local cosmetic dentist at Culebra North Dental Care. Drs. Quillian and Sproull will gladly help you keep your mouth and body healthy. Call today to schedule your first free dental consultation.<br><br><a href=''></a>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

Management :: How to Streamline Business Operations - 05 Apr 2017 08:43


[[html]]A big question in the minds of many people is how to increase the overall efficiency of your business so that costs can be reduced and profit margins increased. This is such a huge question that many companies make millions and even billions of dollars a year as consulting firms to address these very questions and try to provide answers to them. Put quite simply, most small retail chains do not have the resources to pay a consulting firm, so what can be done? You can purchase a point of sale (POS) software system to make your business run more smoothly. How does one software system do more than an expensive consulting firm? It does it by reducing labor needed and streamlining many tasks into one point of sale software program.<br><br>The way that most retail chains run <a href="">small business data</a> these days, they have an inventory report every two months or so. This report consists of an entire weekend spent in the back room taking a tally of each and every individual product so as to get an accurate account for what is in the stock room. A weekend count costs the business a lot of time in lost productivity and in increased labor hours. Point of sale software eliminates the need for such a count. When the product is received, you simply enter it into your POS database via a barcode scanner and as each product is sold, the system updates your inventory stock levels. That means you will have an accurate count of inventory levels at any time thanks to point of sale software. The time and labor saved will do wonders for your bottom line. With this type of inventory management, you will be on top of your merchandise in real time.<br><br><img src="" width="251" /><br><br>Another way that productivity can be increased is through careful examination of sales reports that point of sale software can make. It is quite possible that your store's hours of operations are not the optimal hours for your bottom line. With the intelligent sales reports that hosted point of sale software can create, you can break sales down on an hourly basis to see which hours are not being productive to your business. Let us say that your business opens at eight o'clock in the morning and you think this is the best <a href=""></a> time. With a sales report from the point of sale software you can manipulate the data to show all sales between eight and ten in the morning. If the revenue from these hours of operation is not high enough to cover your costs, you will know to keep the store closed until ten in the morning. <br><br>The fact of the matter is that hosted point of sale software is a tool that can be very effective in helping to optimize your business. It is not very expensive and can be much more beneficial than the more expensive option of hiring an outside consulting firm. A hosted point of sale software system will allow you to become very familiar with your business and empower you with the information necessary to make very important decisions that can lead your company into prosperity. It's time to streamline your business operations. Point of sale Software<br><br>
