Many patients ask, “Why do I need a crown?” A dentist may recommend a crown for you to help strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to hold the filling, protect cracked teeth from breaking and restore one that’s already broken. Crowns also cover a dental implant (tooth root replacement). Crowns are also great options for covering discolored, stained teeth.

(BPT) - Did you know salt is an important ingredient for your good health? No electrolyte is more essential to human survival than salt because the sodium you get from salt is what allows nerves to send and receive electrical impulses, helping your muscles stay strong, your brain functioning and your cells working well. Sodium is easily absorbed and is required for the absorption of other nutrients in the small intestine and for the digestion of body-building protein.
We know that eating nutritious foods and engaging in regular exercise are essential to maintaining good health. But did you know that how you take care of your mouth, teeth and gums is equally important?
(BPT) - Cada año, durante el Período de Inscripción Abierta de Medicare (del 15 de oct. al 7 de dic.), los beneficiarios de Medicare tienen la oportunidad de hacer cambios en su cobertura de salud y de medicamentos de venta con receta. Sin embargo, según una encuesta de UnitedHealthcare del 2013, más del 60 por ciento afirma nunca haber comparado opciones para encontrar la cobertura que pueda adaptarse mejor a sus necesidades. Esto es lamentable, porque Medicare no es un programa que solamente ofrece una opción para todos los casos, y pueden cambiar muchas cosas en un año en relación con su estado de salud y presupuesto. Los planes que están disponibles también pueden cambiar todos los años.
(BPT) - Each year during the Medicare Open Enrollment Period (Oct. 15-Dec. 7), Medicare beneficiaries have a chance to make changes to their health and prescription drug coverage. Yet according to a 2013 survey by UnitedHealthcare, more than 60 percent say they have never shopped around to find coverage that may better suit their needs. That’s unfortunate because Medicare is not a one-size-fits-all program, and a lot can change in a year in terms of your health status and budget. The plans that are available can change every year, too.

Being an advocate for your health can help keep you well, and could save you money on your Medicare coverage, too.
