Inlays And Onlays: A Primer On Their Benefits

Posted by on Mar 31, 2016 in Uncategorized |

The use of inlays and onlays by cosmetic dentists is a rather common procedure. The former occurs when you have a cavity or otherwise recessed area of the teeth that needs to be filled using a composite mixture, while the other involves a process where a replacement tooth is placed over the remainder of the tooth that exists. Throughout the course of this brief article, you will learn a bit about the benefits of both inlays and onlays. Hygiene It is much easier to keep your teeth clean if you opt for an inlay or an onlay rather than the typical go-to tooth filler of a filling. Fillings can create conditions in which plaque is trapped between the tooth itself and the artificial filling inside of the tooth. Neither inlays or onlays have trouble with this issue due to the fact that there is no space for plaque to become trapped between the inlay or onlay and the tooth itself. Aesthetics The reason why inlays and onlays are so often performed by cosmetic dentists is because they offer a bevy of aesthetic benefits. The first and foremost of these is the fact hat inlays and onlays have a very natural appearance. While fillings can look quite different from the tooth that they are aiming to correct – especially if you opt for a less expensive metal filling – inlays and onlays are generally sculpted to emulate a natural tooth and does not readily appear false or unnatural to the naked eye. Resilience Inlays and onlays handle stress very well, and can generally survive a good amount of wear and tear. Both inlays and onlays last a long time and generally last as long as typical fillings do. Those who suffer from teeth grinding, especially the uncontrollable form of bruxism from which many suffer at night, should take note that inlays and onlays are a great option for you. Due to their resilience, they tend to last a long time and can even withstand the stress to which you subject your teeth to by grinding. Hopefully, this brief guide has given you some idea of some of the benefits that inlays and onlays can provide you. Inlays and onlays can provide you with numerous benefits, both structural and cosmetic. If you have any more questions regarding inlays and onlays, it is recommended that you discuss the matter with a local, trusted cosmetic dentist or visit...

What Are The Different Types Of Reclining Lift Chairs?

Posted by on Mar 16, 2016 in Uncategorized |

For those who have problems with mobility getting up and down from a seated position is often difficult. However, a reclining lift chair can often resolve this problem. These chairs lift and move forward so that one can easily change from a sitting to a standing position or vice versa. They are powered by an electric motor that can be activated to lift by a handheld remote that is attached to the chair. These are some of the different types of reclining lift chairs that are available on the market today.  Two-Position Reclining Lift Chairs  A two-position lift chair reclines at an angle in the back and has a footrest that raises as the chair reclines. This type of chair is ideal for sitting and reading, watching television or using a laptop computer. A two position reclining lift chair is similar to a two position standard recliner, but also has a lifting feature so the sitter can move from sitting to standing with ease. Three-Position Reclining Lift Chairs  Three-position reclining lift chairs are designed much like the two position reclining lift chair, except that they have a third position. This includes the upright non-reclining position, slightly angled reclining position with a built-in footrest and another reclining position in which the backrest goes further back at a more obtuse angle with the footrest out for relaxing the legs. This type of chair also lifts forward so that rising from a sitting to a standing position and back is effortless. Three-position reclining lift chairs lie back enough that they are perfectly comfortable for napping. Some of these chairs also have a built-in massage or heat feature that makes them very suitable for those with chronic pain. Infinite Position Reclining Lift Chairs  Infinite position reclining lift chairs provide the ultimate in comfort and convenience for those with mobility problems. These chairs have the same reclining features of a two-position and three-position reclining lift chair and can also lay completely flat so that one can sleep in the chair comfortably if desired. Infinite position reclining lift chairs also have dual motors so that the backrest and the footrest can be moved independently to allow one more options of finding a comfortable position. This type of chair lifts up and forward so that standing up can be achieved from any position. Optional features of heat and massage are also available for infinite position reclining lift chairs. If you have limited space, you also have the option of using a seated lift chair. This type of chair looks similar to a standard chair that might be found in a doctor’s office or library. Seated lift chairs do not have a reclining backrest, but the seat...
