How To Reverse Receding Gums Naturally?

The mouth is full of bacteria. These bacteria, along with the mucus and other particles, are constantly forming a sticky, colorless “plaque” that is deposited on the teeth. Brushing and flossing help remove plaque. Once the cavity inducing plaque is not removed, it hardens and forms deposits called “tartar” or “tartar,” which simply brushing cannot remove. 

Visits to the dentist Although this seems too obvious, it is necessary to remember that only a professional can determine if our mouth is healthy or not and in any case, decide what type of care needs. Regular checks ensure that the mouth stays healthy, clean and without any irregularities.

Good Oral Hygiene

Any infection or illness is easily avoidable if we start from the basis of a good oral hygiene. Although there are much more causes that can produce a disease like receding gums, proper hygiene is a fairly important starting point.

  • Correctly placed teeth characterize a healthy mouth, and no food remains, with gums rosy and without pain or bleeding and good breath.
  • The healthy mouth is an indication of health, socially provides us security by looking good (teeth placed and clean) and allows us to eat and talk in a correct way.
  • Oral hygiene is not just a brushing before going to sleep or passing the thread or floss every time.
  • We must take into account that there are methods that we can take home in our home, as is the usual hygiene and also professional methods, for which we have to go to a dental hygienist or dentist to practice.

What Can We Do Professionally?

A deep cleaning every six months is the best thing to remove plaque remains that daily brushing cannot.

Periodic revisions to the dental hygienist or dentist, avoid unpleasant diseases or ailments.

We can also learn or perfect how we take care of our mouths or use oral cleansers. The expert will guide and advise the correct way to brush teeth, the rinses we can use or how to use the floss or dental floss.

Florence, Italy City Guide

Terra cotta roofs, cobblestone streets, charming hidden alleys, street artists, towering cypress trees, pale yellow building fronts, loud Italian vendors,the lingering aroma of la cucina toscana…

Florence is all things Tuscan and it is impossible not to fall in love with its undeniable charm. Although considered a tourist’s city, there is much more to Florence than what quickly passing visitors see. I had the opportunity and the pleasure to dig deeper, roam further, and discover things about Firenze that many tourists never experience.

What to See

Piazzale Michelangelo- for the best view of Florence’s city center, take the short hike up to this piazza which also has a gelateria, restaurant, and a replica of Michelangelo’s statue of David

Fiesole- a town just on the outskirts of Florence which is situated on top of a hill, allowing you to view Florence from an entirely different perspective; take some time to walk around and admire breathtaking views

Piazza Della Repubblica- a vast, open piazza in the heart of one of Florence’s most frequented shopping streets, Via Roma. Take a ride on the merry-go-round, buy tacky toys from street vendors, or simply take a few moments to people-watch.

Ponte Vecchio- a bridge crossing the Arno River  which hosts several gold shops

Boboli Gardens- beautiful gardens, fountains, and cypress-lined pathways allow to you to take a break from the business of the city

Duomo- that huge dome-shaped building that you see on every postcard of Florence; for 8 euro you can climb to the top (to work off some of that gelato that I know you just ate) and see the city from about 300 feet up

Where to Shop

Let me begin just by saying that no matter what street you turn on and what direction you head towards, you will find noteworthy shops of just about any category. It’s really hard to come up with a solid shopping guide because good shopping is everywhere. If you’re looking for more high-end shopping, Via Tornabuoni and its surrounding areas is your best bet. Via Roma is home to fast-fashion stores like H&M and Zara. You may also want to head down Via Dei Cerratani and Via Panzani(the streets leading to the train station) for more affordable shops such as Dixie and Sisley, as well as endless leather shoe stores.

San Lorenzo Market- a trip to the market is a true experience and has anything Italian you could ever dream of- leather goods galore (bags, wallets, briefcases, notebooks, shoes, you name it), glassware, and all types of souvenirs are the market’s most highly sought out items; you may even pick up a dozen or so new pick-up lines from the vendors

Massimo Leather- Massimo is not only one of the friendliest people I met in Florence, his leather goods are of the best quality. Next door is his shop selling leather purses.

Valentino- high-quality leather shoes

Dixie- a great selection of both trendy and casual apparel, shoes, and accessories; there are several of these stores located throughout Florence as well as Italy’s other main cities

Where to Eat

Da Mario- open only for lunch, Mario’s a huge hit with both locals and students and is always busy

Mama Gina- extremely welcoming and accommodating staff and excellent food; try the pappa al pomodoro (bread-based tomato soup) and the melanzane alla parmigianna (eggplant parmesan)

Trattoria Zaza- the truffle pasta dishes are to die for

La Pentola Del’Ora- this hidden treasure was located on the same block as my apartment; the staff is extremely helpful and will translate and explain the entire menu for you

The Oil Shoppe- the perfect lunch stop offering any type of sandwich you could possibly dream up; they also offer generously sized salads, flavored coffees, and yogurt parfaits

Gusta Pizza- possibly Florence’s most popular pizzeria with the students, and if you get lucky they may even make your pizza in the shape of a heart

Gelaterias

Grom- my personal favorite gelateria in Florence; the gelato is smoother and creamier than most and is served at a slightly lower temperature than usual

Gelateria Dei Neri- tons of unique flavors to choose from (such as gorgonzola which sounds weird but is amazing!)

Gelateria Carraia- king of the 1 euro gelato cone; any flavor you could imagine and for a very reasonable price

 

 

Soup Recipes Roundup

During the cold winter months, I find myself adopting close to a liquid diet without even trying. I drink tea all day long and crave a warm bowl of soup for most meals. While I often get lazy and resort to heating up my favorite Amy’s black bean soup or tomato bisque on the stove, I’ve decided to start trying some recipes this season. A couple of weeks ago I made an incredible apple & butternut squash soup which I would like to make again in the future. Here are some other great-looking soup recipes I plan on giving a go.

Dad-Daughter Date to Sak’s Thai Cuisine

Last night my dad and I went out to a local Thai restaurant called Sak’s Thai Cuisine for dinner. My dad is a pretty adventurous eater and has traveled all over the world so I was pretty shocked to hear that he had never had Thai food before. We started off with vegetarian spring rolls and “buddha rolls” (which were filled with chicken and vegetables and fried). The spring rolls came with a peanut sauce and the buddha rolls with a pineapple sauce.

My Dad wanted to try a little bit of everything so we ordered a chicken curry {you can’t go wrong with a good curry} and pineapple fried rice and shared.

Just when I thought the meal was over, my Dad decided that he wanted some dessert too. We ordered purple sticky rice with custard. I honestly have no idea how a dessert made out of rice could be so delicious, but it was honestly one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. The custard on top almost tasted like melted cookie dough, and I loved the texture of the sticky rice. I will be sure to be ordering this next time I see it on a menu.

It was a rather successful first Thai experience for Daddy Dunst and I am confident that he will be back {as well as myself, next time I’m in Rochester}. Tonight is my last night in New York so now it’s my mom’s turn for a dinner + movie date with me!

Fit 2012

As I’m sure you’re aware, the time for New Year’s resolutions is rapidly approaching. I really hate to be America’s biggest cliche, but I’m going to have to place my fitness goals at the top of my list of resolutions. A four month long diet of pasta, gelato, and enough pesto to bathe in did no favors to my figure and I’m pumped to get back into my fitness routine.

I believe that a solid plan and measurable goals are essential to a personal plan to get in shape, but cute clothes and a pumpin’ playlist are just as vital. Ok, and looking at Sports Illustrated on a weekly basis. Yeah I said it.

I’m a huge fan of Lululemon’s running and yoga wear. I think a long run would be much more appealing if I got to do it in this adorable pullover, which is so perfectly titled the “Back on Track” pullover and the matching tights.

Here are some songs I’ve added to my workout playlist which have been getting me real revved at the gym.

1. The Temper Trap- Love Lost

2. David Guetta (featuring Sia)- Titanium

3. Tiesto- Feel It In My Bones

4. Foster the People- Pumped Up Kicks

5. Empire of the Sun- Walking on a Dream

6. Ellie Goulding- Lights

7. Maroon 5- Moves Like Jagger

8. Kings of Leon- Sex on Fire

9. Out Hud- How Long

10. Rihanna- Complicated

Trend: Pulling of the Peacock

I’ve always been mesmerized by the beauty and mysteriousness of peacocks. The spectrum of blues and greens and their towering spread of feathers make them seem so majestic. I was even a peacock for Halloween a couple of years ago {apparently I was a step ahead of this year’s peacock trend}. The key to pulling off this look is playing off of the colors of the peacock, throwing in one or two neutrals, and choosing just one piece or two that is an obvious imitation of the peacock.

Because I missed Thanksgiving in 2011 and am still not totally over it, my family is having “Fakesgiving” today {I must credit this term to my friend Lauren who just celebrated this holiday last week with her family}. But because it’s the first of the year and I would like to be off to a good start, I’m making it a “healthy Fakesgiving.” We’re going to have a turkey, some vegetables, and this winter squash and apple soup.
