Why Retainers Should Be Worn After Braces

Ensure perfectly straight teeth are forever By Azra Shuib | September 23rd, 2022 The grand reveal after a period of wearing braces is always exciting. Perfectly aligned teeth and a more confident smile of your dreams are finally yours. But, don’t get too carried away that you forget how to care for them for a long time. After you are done with braces, the doctor will give you a piece of plastic and metal known as a retainer.  What is a retainer? Retainers are custom devices designed to hold your teeth in the right position. They are commonly given to people (kids and adults) after having their braces taken off. Some patients may also wear retainers for medical issues or to improve speech issues. Retainers are made customized, hence an impression of your teeth must be made in order to create retainers that can fit the teeth properly. The process may take up to 7 days for the completion. Why should I wear a retainer after braces? Usually, when braces are removed, teeth can shift back to their original position as we bite and grind on food daily, hence retainers are used to maintain the position of the straightened teeth. Most patients would have to wear their retainers all day for 3 months, but after that, they may wear them at night only. Some people may also just need to wear their retainers at night only, but for more than a year. It can be uncomfortable at the start, but as time passes and you have adapted more to the retainers, they won’t feel uncomfortable anymore and you can sleep fine. Other importance of wearing retainers include: 1. Stabilizing Bite After braces removal, the bone and soft tissues will need to adapt to the new position of the teeth. The retainers can help to stabilize teeth in a new position and ensure no shifting or relapse. To achieve this, patients need to wear their retainers for at least 12 to 22 hours for at least 2 months. 2. Right Spacing for Wisdom Teeth By using retainers, teeth are stabilized and the space required for wisdom teeth can be maintained. Shifting of the teeth due to the incorrect ways of wearing retainers can cause crowding due to lack of space. 3. Avoiding Treatment Reversal The teeth will tend to move back into their initial positions after wearing braces, and retainers can help to prevent this. Therefore, wearing retainers is one of the most cost-effective ways to sustain the results you get with braces. 4. Improving Speech Issues Some people have difficulty saying certain words due to the placement of teeth, so they need retainers to help form the sounds correctly.   Retainer Types i. Removable Retainer: Typically, this type is worn all the time for 4 months to a year. It is only removed when eating or brushing the teeth. After a prescribed period of time, the orthodontist will check on the teeth movement to ensure they are stable and determine how long you would need to continue wearing the retainer. ii. Fixed Retainer: This type is bonded to your teeth in an unobtrusive spot. Fixed retainers need to be worn for a long time, possibly years. But because a fixed retainer can’t be removed while eating, patients have risks of periodontal issues, especially when no strict oral care is practised. Retainer Care · Always brush the retainers with toothpaste after using · Always soak the retainers in clean water while not in use · Avoid exposure to sunlight  · Avoid soaking in hot water or putting it near a heat source For a high-quality retainer prescription, book our treatments below: Aesthetic Dentistry @ Rome    Retainer @ Chiang Mai

Thai Massage Benefits in Mind and Muscles Recovery Routine

Thai Massage is far from gentle, which makes it very satisfying By Azra Shuib | September 16th, 2022 Traditional Thai Massage is widely known all over the world, but not many realize the benefits in the body recovery process. Athletes may not be unfamiliar with recovery massages, but Thai Massage is also suitable for those who just need a recharge or escape from the bustling city life and the never-ending workload at the office. The Roots of Thai Massage Thai Massage is said to have been developed more than 2,500 years ago. It’s very much associated with Buddhism, Ayurvedic practices and traditional Chinese medicine. This can be due to the amalgamation that happened centuries ago due to the strategic location of Thailand being in between India and China.  It has strong roots in heritage and therefore it’s unlike Western kind of massages. Often massages are depicted in a setting where the patient lies on the bed while the massage therapist applies oil on the patient’s body to knead and rub the pressure points. But Thai Massage is different - it is done while you are fully clothed and laying down on your stomach, and it is definitely not gentle.  While other massages enable you to indulge in slumber bliss, Thai Massage involves pulling and cracking the arms, while the therapists sit on top of you. There is no oil involved, hence no smooth and soothing movements that put you to sleep. This does not mean you should just give in to the applied pressure. If you feel any pain or discomfort, you can always tell the masseuse to reduce the pressure so that you could still enjoy the massage session. The Best Things About Thai Massage Although it can be a bit uncomfortable, Thai Massage has a lot of benefits in relieving body pain and stress. It’s energizing and its ungentle nature ‘wakes’ your body up to a fresher feeling. More benefits of Thai Massage: 1. Relieves headaches According to small studies, Thai Massage is found to have the ability to reduce the intensity of migraine and headaches. It is also found that the benefits could last from several days to about 15 weeks. 2. Reduces back pain It is widely known that massages can be effective in treating back pain. But Thai Massage has been proven as an effective treatment for back pain as well as in the upper back. 3. Increases flexibility Pulling and cracking motions in Thai Massage helps to increase blood flow and oxygen supply to muscles, hence improving muscles flexibility. Researchers have also found that Thai Massage could help in increasing speed and agility among sportsmen. It can also be beneficial for those with knee arthritis and osteoarthritis of the knee, as studies have proven that Thai Massage could help with pain relief. 4. Eases stress and anxiety Although Thai Massage does not come across as relaxing, it is a form of therapy that can invoke a sense of relaxation. Studies have also noted how people who get Thai Massage have lower psychological stress following treatment. 5. Increases Energy Thai Massage’s energetic nature can definitely improve your energy levels if done regularly. Apart from athletes, Thai Massage sessions are also recommended for sedentary people who feel like they are stuck in a rut and always tired no matter how much sleep they get. The therapeutic benefits of a massage can help to increase oxygen levels to the body, stimulating a natural healing and toxins removal process. All of this will lead to a good night’s sleep, ensuring that you wake up feeling recovered and fresher the next day. Thai Massage Preparations To get the best out of your massage session, it’s best to be well-planned: · Refrain from eating a heavy meal at least 1 hour before the massage · Always arrive 10 to 15 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment to get ample time to complete any forms or to change before the massage · Let the masseuse know about any health complications or pain in certain areas because not everyone is suitable for a Thai Massage. How Often Do You Need A Thai Massage? This entirely depends on what works or feels comfortable to you! As a general recommendation, those who just want to relax and bounce back with more energy may benefit from a monthly session. If you are trying to treat musculoskeletal problems from too much or lack of activities, a fortnightly or monthly session can be beneficial.  Athletes on intense training or those who work high-stress jobs can benefit from a monthly massage, depending on the condition. You can discuss with your attending doctor or the massage specialist to get the ideal interval for you. Contraindications As a reminder, Thai Massage is not suitable for: · Pregnant women · Children · The with certain underlying conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, varicose veins, autoimmune disease, decreased pain sensitivity, cancer, epilepsy, tumours, or are on medication that thins the blood · Those with metal implants Interested to get a session? Book Thai Massage to get the best out of your trip!

5 Surprising Uses of Botox Other than Reducing Wrinkles

What other things can botox be used for? By Afrina Ghazali | August 26th, 2022 Botulinum toxin or what is more commonly known as Botox, is basically a protein made from bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. As the name suggests, Botox is a toxin that can cause a serious illness called botulism. It can set people to paralyse and if it reaches the respiratory system, respiratory failure could occur. Back in those days, these occurrences often lead to fatality but antitoxins have shown tremendous improvement over the past few decades. Nowadays, Botox is more popular for its uses in cosmetic and medical uses because when used correctly and in small doses, there are a lot of benefits that could be gained. Botox injections are especially popular as the "non-surgical plastic surgery" that can help people reverse their aging signs such as wrinkles, fine lines, in most cases, or at least that is what most people can ring a bell for. But did you know that there are other uses of Botox? Yes, apart from wrinkles-reducing effect, there are quite a few others to list. Some of them, which you might have heard of and some others, which you might not have discovered yet. Here's a few other conditions that Botox can treat: 1. Chronic Migraines It was in the early 90's, when Botox was used to reduce wrinkles but people reported they had fewer headaches in results. Allergan, the producer of Botox then tested the products for headaches and migraines. There were questions in place, if it really works to treat migraines or if it is only the placebo effect but it was FDA-approved around 2010. It is also reported than people who receive treatment for migraines using Botox get at leas 30 injections in different spots all over the head and neck area. It is said that the effects last at least around 2 to 3 months. 2. Hyperhidrosis Have you ever heard of this condition? It happens when one's body's sweat glands overact. Hyperhidrosis, or abnormally excessive sweating that can cause one's clothes to get soaked or dripping sweat off one's hands. Not only can this disrupt daily activities, it has been reported that those affected can also be in the state of embarrassment or experience social anxiety. Patients treated for facial spasms were found to sweat less so Allergan began studying about its effects on hyperhidrosis. It later was FDA-approved to treat hyperhidrosis in 2004. It can be used to treat underarm, hands and feet sweating. 3. Overactive Bladder In Chicago, Dr. Linda Brubaker reported, "In my 30 years of medical practice, Botox was one of the most impactful treatments I had never seen for overactive bladder." In another study, she had also found that about 70% women who had undergone treatments with her had experienced reduced number of leaks from 5 to only 3 a day.  Botox is now FDA-approved to be used to reduce urinary incontinence. 4. Severe Neck Spasms and Stiff Shoulder Botox has been widely used to treat the neck spasms and stiff shoulders for over 25 years. Patients reported that it is effective to relieve pain. The injection of Botox relaxes the tensed muscles. It blocks the chemical signal between nerves and muscles that make the muscles contract. This then gives reliable relief from spasms that could cause pain and muscle stiffness. 5. Calf Slimming Calf Botox has also followed the lead in Botox treatment. People use Botox to slim down their calf muscles. When injected into the gastrocnemius muscle, it relaxes the muscle that is responsible for bulkiness and rigid definition of the calves. This will then create a leaner appearance of the calves. Discover more about Botox and its uses on our main page. You can also leave comments or questions if you have any on the treatment pages!

Facial Treatments for Sensitive Skin

Even your delicate, sensitive skin deserves some love and pampering By Azra Shuib | August 19th, 2022 You may be worried about getting any beauty treatments like facials, fillers or any rejuvenating therapy because of your sensitive skin. But you don’t have to deprive your skin of any good care anymore. The good news is, there are a lot of treatments that are suitable to treat and freshen up your skin. If your skin is reactive to any products, you may need to find gentle and calming facials that are effective at addressing your concerns. In this article, let’s learn about the procedures you can consider so you won’t be left out on the beauty trend. First and foremost, as with any beauty procedures, you should only get them done with the right dermatologists or estheticians, especially if you have sensitive skin. Cryotherapy Facial This is one of the best treatments for those with sensitive skin. Using cryogenics technology, cryotherapy facial is a new method that can tighten and enhance the surface of your skin. Most people say that they can see the glow immediately after a session, and this facial has no downtime at all. This facial uses cold vaporized liquid nitrogen that can immediately soothe and calm sensitive skin. Your body’s reaction when exposed to low temperatures will help to encourage cell rejuvenation, boost immune function and ease skin healing. Brightening serums may also be delivered into your skin, which makes the results from Cryo Facial session even more satisfying. Aqua Peel Aqua Peel or what is known as skin scaling, is a treatment that cleanses facial pores. This treatment uses AHA and BHA-infused solutions as well as a suction nozzle to suck dirt from the skin while infusing and saturating your pores with nutrient-rich serums, resulting in a hydrating effect. Imagine clean and fresh skin that is flooded with moisture – that’s what Aqua Peel can do. Not only that, but it also has no downtime so you can expect a painless and rejuvenating facial treatment. It does not leave you with the raw or tight feeling of the skin due to suction of blackheads and other blemishes like the other ‘dry’ peels. Plus point, Aqua Peel is also safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Dermal Fillers The idea of getting injections may terrify you due to the condition of your skin, but don’t worry too much with getting needles under the skin. In fact, a lot of times this treatment does not hurt at all. These days, dermal fillers come together with anesthesia, and they can be done super quickly. And for a very fast procedure, the results are significant and long-lasting (6 to 12 months). Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in your body. Bonus point – since it’s natural, it is safe. And hyaluronic acid has the ability to store moisture which helps to maintain skin hydration. Unlike Botox or Dysport that freeze muscles to reduce wrinkles, fillers smooth out skin by restoring volume. They can be injected into the forehead, temples, crow’s feet, under eyes, upper and lower cheeks, lips, nose and other desired areas. Of course, the treatments mentioned above can work wonders to your especially sensitive skin and since you have been worrying about your sensitive skin a little too much and maybe excited and interested to try other kinds of treatments, just be sure to: 1. Consult with well experienced dermatologist Learn to accept the do's and dont's for your skin and the kinds of chemical your skin must avert. Also let them know your goals for the treatments. 2. Always tell your aesthetician / facialist that you have a sensitive skin Make sure the products used throughout the session will not trigger your skin to break like hypoallergenic products and also let them know the step by step of your skin-care routine. 3. Expert yourself in which kind of treatments to commit and avoid Those harsh exfoliating treatments or any that involve extractions is for sure for you to desist. If you wish to commit to healthier skin, always opt for calming, hydrating and soothing facial treatments like mentioned above. So don't wait. Book a treatment with us! Why book with Trambellir? Our affiliated clinics are safe and trusted in these beauty procedures. By booking with us, you can be worry-free in your travels.

Hair Loss Myths You Might Have Heard

What can really cause your hair to lose? Is it true, all the things people say? By Afrina Ghazali | June 17th, 2022 Hair loss can be frustrating especially for men as it's widely known to be the men's crown. A lot of people have come up with reasons why you could go bald and I am sure you must have heard a few. Ladies and gents, some statements can be trusted, but should you believe the hearsays you might have come across bluntly? Why it happens, when it happens, who it happens to, this article will straigthen out a few most popularly misunderstood beliefs about hair loss. Myth 1: "Wearing hats too often can lose your hair?" Most assumptions stick out the idea that scalps need to be aired out to "breathe". Do you think that's true? It's not. It's true that our hair needs oxygen but the supply comes from our bloodstream, not the surrounding air. Imagine how much hair women with headscarfs would have lost by now if this statement is true. So go on ahead and wear whatever your heart desires. Caps or hats, they won't affect hair growth or cause your hair to fall off. Myth 2: "Once bald, forever bald man!" Hold on there. Not all hair loss are permanent. You need to seek out professional advise before believing this. Hair loss is commonly associated with genetic conditions that could cause male pattern baldness. But not all hair loss is like that. It could be caused by other factors as well, such as, hormonal changes, illnesses, eating disorders or certain trauma. So if these were to happen to be the cause of your hair loss, good news then, it's temporary. Myth 3: "Stop stressing out, you'll lose all your hair!" This is not entirely true. Studies have shown that severe stress could lead to your hair going into a "rest mode", which means they pause the regeneration of hair which could also cause alopecia areata --- a form of hair loss that creates baldy patches. However, these kinds of hair loss are usually connected to severely traumatic events prolong to long-term suffering and illnesses including hair loss. Everyday stress like politics in the office or your chaotic children at home would not cause your hair to fall. Even if it does, don't stress yourself because it's only temporary. Myth 4: "Shampooing too often is the cause you're losing too much hair" Well, this is not true. The hair follicles are not directly sensitive to shampoos. In fact, it is genetically driven and comes from under the scalp. So whether you shampoo your hair too often or never, it should be your least worrying factor that's causing or increasing your hair loss.  Those hair getting in between your fingers in the shower? Well, those hair were meant to fall off and have been fallen off anyway. So if you ask us? We say, go wash your hair as often as possible for hygienic purpose. Myth 5: "Buy the over the counter supplements, it can help grow your hair" Sometimes we are buying too much of the marketing tactics, we might even endanger ourselves. We don't recommend holding onto to over the counter supplements. Not only it is not recommended by the doctors to consume such medicine as it is not safe, it is also not proven to help regenerate hair growth. So ask again, is it worth risking your life? Myth 6: "Don't worry, you won't be bald, you're only 20" Did you know that hair loss can happen to anyone regardless of age? Especially for those who has hair loss due to genetic factor, pattern baldness can even take place sooner. Some people even experience it as early as 20 years old.  So, if you happen to have started to lose your hair, don't beat up yourself thinking you must have done something bad to have caused it. If you want to be certain whether any statements could be true or myths, you can seek professional advice from our specialists. There could be several to solving your concerns, try check out numerous selections of treatments in different locations to treat your hair loss issue down below: Hair Loss Treatments

The Things You Need to Know About Men's Health

Why is it important? By Afrina Ghazali | June 3rd, 2022 It's June and to commemorate it as the month of Men's Health, it's time we highlight the importance of male health attitudes and share a few preventive health practices that can help men to stay healthy and save their lives. But before that, a quick pop quiz:  Do you know which gender is outpacing the other in health? Despite the advances in medical diagnosis and treatments which progresses positively towards human's life expectancy, gender gap in health still has not changed and over many decades, records show that women continue to outpace men. In fact, recent studies show that the gender gap between the women and men has even became wider today than it was decades ago. This trend is not only shown in one country but many around the world, whether in developed or developing countries, the gap is present in rural or urban areas. It is a universal finding that highlights the difference between the health of men and women in our society. Is it true that men die younger than women? There is no specific answer as to why males are found to be the weaker gender when it comes to health but it's almost accurate when people say men tend to have more diseases and die younger than women. For instances, men are more likely to have gout and get inguinal hernias than women. Also, men have five times more chance at getting aortic aneurysms and develop kidney stones or to have bladder cancer. This is the reason why although women always see their doctors more often than men do, but the medical care costs are mostly contributed by men. Importance of Men's Health Men's health are very important and just as important as women's, but compared to women, men are more likely to smoke, drink, make risky choices and not seeing their doctors for regular checkups. Those are among the major reasons studies stress why men need to pay more attention to their health as they too are susceptible to cancer, stroke, diabetes, depression and heart diseases. Preventative measures and early detection are the key According to researches, most of the critical health risks that are associated with men can be prevented but it comes with a lot of effort. Here are a few tips you can practice to heighten your health: 1. Eat clean: Eat more healthy food and avoid harmful fast and processed food 2. Exercise regularly: Join the classes or walk to work, be sure to keep up being fit 3. Reduce stress: Work never ends so don't overwork yourself and get enough rest 4. Avoid drinking and smoking: Even if you choose to, try to limit yourself  5. Get regular checkups: Run all possible screening tests and listen to your doctor's advice There are more tips to practice such as avoid risky behaviors such as drug abuse, unsafe sex, dangerous driving, or reduce exposure to chemicals or radiation whenever possible or try to seek joy and share it with your loved ones. Conclusion: Go see your doctor! Skip being the average guy. It's about time we break the "I'm the man" or the "Tough Guy" stigma. Visiting your doctors annually does not prove you are weak. In fact, you are doing yourself and your loved ones a great favour to obtain the best health and jolly a long prosperous life with your family.

Physiotherapy Vs Chiropractic

Which one is for you? By Afrina Ghazali | May 27th, 2022 When it comes to relieving pain in the muscles, you would usually resort with seeing a physiotherapist. Or some might wonder if it would be better to meet a chiropractist instead? This article will summarise the similarities and differences between the two as well as highlight which one of the two would suit you. What is Physiotherapy? Physiotherapy is a physical therapy that usually associated with rehabilitative programme with end goal is to relief pain and promote enhanced mobility. Physiotherapists will normally assess your conditions and come up with a right approach of exercises or stretches to practice.  Physiotherapy also plays important role to encouraging patients to feel that they could be in control of their rehabilitation and could cover every part of the patients' daily needs and care from correct diet, regular exercises to posture and breathing.

If you think keeping up to fitness is the answer, remember that it requires you to exercise, jogging in the morning and keeping up with healthy meals. But that's not all. Going for regular checkups must also be considered as a part of your fitness routines because after all, heatlh checkups are that important. Common Perceptions of Health Checkups "I've been healthy all my life, do I really need to get myself tested?" or "I'm still of a young age, health checkups wouldn't be necessary for me, would it?" Those are among the few most common questions we get asked a lot. Most of the people think that health checkups are only an essential measure for those already affected with diseases and of old age. And that is exactly what needs correcting. Health checkups are for everyone as a tool to maintaining health. It helps evaluate the current performance of the bodily organs and state of well-being as well as to help diagnose should there be any underlying potential problems that might develop in the future. Today, many of us have no choice but to be working in heavy industries, exposed to chemicals or pollutions and consuming unhealthy fast food too often to cut the time, because of that, one may not expect the kinds of illness we could be getting in the future. Nowadays, there are many cases recorded that people can develop cancer without having any family associated with cancer in the history. There are many cases where people suddenly die of heart attacks. Mostly happen unexpectedly and this is one of the major reasons why health checkups are very crucial in the world we live in today. What do Health Checkups do? Health checkups do not only evaluate the physical part of the body but also include other laboratory screenings, blood profiling and other bodily scans according to specific age, sex, family health and history. There are a lot of options available to choose from today. The medical experts have made different selections of health checkups suitable for those below 40, those with family history of certain illnesses, those with allergies and much more.
