Medicine Education – What are the most common health issues

Dental health (Tooth Loss)

Many dental health issues can leave you with missing teeth. Gum disease is the biggest cause for loss of anterior teeth. Gum disease is most commonly caused by a lack of good dental hygiene, where bacteria and plaque remain on the teeth and gums and infects them. Smoking is another major cause of gum disease.

Many people choose to get dental implants to replace these missing teeth but it is important that the disease is cured before this process can take place.

If you are looking to get dental implants to improve the functionality of your teeth, then you should speak to a highly experienced implantologist about the prospects and whether it is the right treatment for you as getting dental implants with poor oral condition could hinder rather than improve your dental health.

Other dental health problems that cause missing teeth include:

  • Cavities
  • Physical Injury or Trauma
  • Other health conditions such as diabetes, arthritis or poor nutrition

Asthma

What causes it?

Asthma is a narrowing of the airways of the lungs and the inflamed airways become irritated leading to bouts of coughing, wheezing, breathlessness and chest tightness.

A common symptom of an asthma attack is that is often more difficult breathing out than it is breathing in.

Asthma is treated with two types of drugs. The ‘preventers’ suppress the underlying inflammation while the ‘relievers’ relieve airway constriction by causing the muscles in the airway to relax and thus open the airways.

These drugs are refined and more selective versions of naturally occurring chemicals and research on laboratory animals has been important in most stages of the development and testing of these medicines.
