Dental implants: What are the options?

Category: Health & Beauty

By Vladimir Pastouk-DMD, Dental and Cosmetic Solutions
 
Q: I have tried to keep my original teeth for as long as I can, but now I need options for replacing my broken and missing teeth. What is the best procedure for an immediate restoration?
A: I am transitioning patients who have missing or broken teeth to immediate restorations that are supported by implants done in one procedure that restore a patient’s ability to eat, smile, and talk. I insert the implants and then attach a temporary restoration to the implants that is not removable by the patient. 
 
In just one day, the patient can walk out of the office with implants and temporary teeth affixed to these imp ...

Enjoy healthy legs by summer

By Dr. Sonja Stiller, Center for Advanced Vein Care
 
In spite of the cold temperatures, the days are getting longer and soon the purple tips of crocuses will begin rising out of the snow. Spring is on its way, followed by another gorgeous Northeast Ohio summer.
 
But for many people, summer activities will be limited because of varicose veins, which can cause pain and swelling, making it difficult to walk, run, or bike. In addition, unsightly spider veins prevent many of us from wearing shorts or bathing suits.
 
Of course, it doesn’t have to be that way. A wide variety of treatments—covered by insurance—can eliminate the causes and symptoms of varicos ...

By Jerry Schieve & Rick Shaneyfelt-Owners, Buckeye Waterproofing

As a full-service company, we are different because there is no salesman involved. You deal directly with us, the owners, Rick Shaneyfelt and Jerry Schieve, and we always try to educate our customers on the problem, if any, and, more importantly, on the right solution.

What is the Madonna Eye Lift?

by mimivanderhaven.com on 03/26/2015 - 04:10 pm
Category: Health & Beauty

By Dr. Stefanie Christian, Timeless Laser & Skin Care
 
The Madonna Eye Lift was originally developed by Dr. Bruce Katz, who, at the time, felt that singer Madonna had the perfect eyes—no passive creases, no crêpiness, and pretty brows that were the perfect height, all with no scars.
 
At Timeless Laser & Skin Care, I perform this same procedure using SmartSkin fractional laser resurfacing, the most advanced, customizable, micro-ablative skin renewal laser available.
 
With the Madonna Laser Eye Lift, a marked improvement can be seen with loose, crêpy skin, and with mild to moderate hooding. The treatment can even lighten dark circles and help l ...

Soup: The year-round comfort food

By Chef Louis Prpich
Chowder House Café
 
“No soup for you!”
 
Remember Jerry, George, Kramer, and Elaine’s devastation when denied service at their favorite soup stand? Sure it made for a memorable episode of Seinfeld. But, more importantly, it spoke to a collective craving for one of life’s most universal comfort foods.
 
Soup and its many variations—including stew, chowder, bisque, potage, gazpacho, borscht and, vichyssoise—evolved from earlier ages, when resources were scarce and meal-preparation time limited.
 
Unable to drive to the nearest mega-mart to purchase exotic ingredients, folks relied on whatever vegetabl ...

Can varicose veins cause blood clots?

by Sonja Stiller, MDCenter for Advanced Vein Care
 
If you or a loved one are worried about varicose veins, you have a right to be. Those bulging veins are not just a cosmetic issue; they represent a risk for blood clots. Again and again, patients come in telling me that they thought their veins weren’t a big deal (or worse, their doctor told them that!), yet now they have pain, swelling, redness, warmth over the veins, and often...a blood clot.
In about 25% of cases, those blood clots involve the larger veins—a condition that can be life threatening—and may require you to start taking blood thinners.
Many people can avoid that outcome by having their veins treated ...

The real cost of dental insurance

Category: Health & Beauty

By Dr. Colleen Vienna, Vienna Dental and Aesthetics
 
Our country was built on the foundation of freedom of choice. So I share the frustration people feel when their dentist is not on their insurance list. Often patients think it is in their best interest to go to a dental practice on their insurance list, but that is not always the case. Dentists who appear on so many lists accept lower fees for their services, and these fees have been set by the insurance companies. As a result, those dentists may have to cut corners when it comes to patient care.
 
At Vienna Dental and Aesthetics, we provide the quality care that every patient deserves, and we treat our patients like we ...

By Sarah Lewan-Founder, The Spa at the Aesthetic Center
 
In order for your skin to age later, we must add ingredients to the skin daily for healthy balance.
 
The skin is the largest organ in the body. As we age, physiological mechanisms slow down. The skin needs certain ingredients to prevent malnutrition, which results in sagging, wrinkles, and excessive brown spots. 
 
Beautiful skin starts with healthy skin. To maintain and improve skin health, an effective, professional, pharmaceutical-based skincare regimen is essential. 
 
The Spa at The Aesthetic Center exclusively uses and recommends Image Skincare. After decades in the skin care field, we&rsqu ...

The keys to healthy cholesterol

By Mike Ventresca, Vital Choice Healthstore
 
The American Heart Association raised eyebrows in November 2013 when it introduced new and expanded guidelines for the use of statins—popular cholesterol-lowering drugs. Many health experts quickly rejected the expanded use and warned of the associated dangers. 
 
Today I want to focus less on this debate, and more on what you can do to support healthy cholesterol levels before (and hopefully without) resorting to pharmaceuticals. 
 
First, there is a supplement called Red Yeast Rice extract. Numerous studies have shown it can be extremely effective. In fact, according to a 2009 article on his website, natural ...
