By Dr. Vladimir Pastouk, Dental & Cosmetic Solutions
Q: Does insurance cover dental implants?
A: More and more insurance companies are covering some services connected to dental implants, such as the placement, restoration, and crown, as well as bone grafting and other surgical procedures necessary to get ready for the implant. Dental implants are recognized as a standard of care and, as such, are often covered under insurance plans.
Every plan, however, differs even within the same insurance carrier, so you need to check your insurance policy.
For those patients who do not have insurance, we offer an in-office dental membership savings plan. This program is o ...

Why you need more acid, not less

By Mike Ventresca, Vital Choice Healthstore
Do you suffer from heartburn or have you been diagnosed with GERD? If so, you have likely taken an acid neutralizer.
Makes sense, right?
If you have acid indigestion then you must have too much stomach acid, right?
In most cases, acid indigestion is caused by too little stomach acid not too much. Taking an acid neutralizer may give you short-term relief but does little to solve your problem. In fact, in the long run, suppressing stomach acid can decrease your body’s ability to digest food properly, create nutritional deficiencies, and ultimately cause acid reflux.

By Dr. David Gutman, Advanced Hemorrhoid Specialists
While you’re busy preparing for the new year that is already upon us, chances are good that the burning, pain, itch, and bleeding of your hemorrhoids didn't help to make your holiday season merry or bright. Add to that the discomfort of frigid temperatures and a desire to remain in hibernation mode, and before you know it you’ll have suffered through the winter without putting any of the focus on finding relief for yourself.
Scheduling an appointment with my office takes minutes, and we can get you in right after the parties and visits from friends and relatives have wrapped up.

By Mike Brady, Michael Brady Co.
When we talk to clients about their retirement income sources, we talk about the three-legged stool of Social Security, company retirement plans, and personal investments. Of the three income sources, Social Security may be the least understood.  
For many people, the money they and their employers paid into Social Security represents their single largest investment. Yet not many people understand the calculations for receiving benefits and the ramifications of their choices. Choosing wrong could cost tens of thousands of dollars in lost benefits over their lifetimes.  
There are many variables and combinations of variable ...

Treating diabetic feet

Category: Health & Beauty

By Dr. Joe Ripepi, Ripepi Foot and Ankle Clinic
According to the American Diabetes Association, about 15.7 million people suffer from diabetes. Foot problems are a big risk in diabetics. I’d like to shed some light on how this disease affects the feet and the ways we can work together to prevent serious foot problems. 
What are complications from diabetes?
Difficulty fighting off infection along with decreased circulation and decreased feeling in the foot make diabetics more suscesptible to debilitating infections, open sores, and possible foot or toe amputations.  
Working with a podiatrist (foot doctor), along with consistent preventative fo ...

By Debbie Croce-President, King Insurance & Financial Services
After 30 years of being married and raising a family, I suddenly found myself on my own. My children were grown and it was just me. There were a lot of things I had never done. It might sound silly, but I didn’t take care of the finances or the monthly bills; I didn’t take care of the maintenance on my car; I didn’t even have a car titled in my name. There were so many aspects of my life that I felt I didn’t have a clue about. Fortunately, insurance was not one of them.
I have been in the insurance business for over 25 years, and when it came to making sure I was protected properly, t ...

Simple cures for winter hat hair

By Evangelene Brown
Owner, Salon Evangelene
The Greater Cleveland area is known for its beautiful and snowy, but sometimes harsh and freezing, winter months. On the one hand, you can rejoice that during these months there’s no heat or humidity to ruin your picture-perfect hairstyle. On the other hand, having to put on a hat to brave the frigid temperatures outside can definitely be a buzzkill to your ‘do.
Static Woes
One of the main effects of wearing a hat is that darned static. If your hair is prone to static that means it lacks moisture. Try placing a hydrating styling aid with a moisture component, like Aquage’s Hydrating Mist, on the inside of that ...

Hair loss: How much is normal?

Category: Health & Beauty

By Jeffrey Paul-Owner, Jeffrey Paul Salon
Some of us see the hairs we lose. We notice them on our clothes, in our brushes, on our pillows, or on our bathroom floors. Others aren’t sure what happened. It’s a mystery that leaves us wondering if we’ve used the right products through the years, if we’ve made a mistake with a certain styling routine or color processing, or if we have some sort of medical problem.
No matter the number of hairs you may have on your head, or your hair’s texture, healthy, normal hair has a regular grow-shed cycle of about 80 to 100 hairs a day, so a certain amount of “fall out” is a natural occurrence.

Station 43 has lightened up

By Lisa Randazzo-Ross
Managing Owner, Station 43 Tavern
It is no secret that firefighters enjoy hearty fare such as burgers, pizza, and pasta. (And let’s be honest, who among us does not crave a juicy cheeseburger and fries from time to time?) But the physical demands of a firefighter’s job require staying in tip-top shape. When the alarm sounds, someone’s life, home, or business could depend on it.
That does not mean firefighters must sacrifice a penchant for pasta for the greater good. Station 43 Tavern in Solon offers a variety of casual cuisine that satisfies cravings, fills bellies, and helps firefighters (and others) stay strong and lean. He ...
