Bakteri tersebut sebenarnya tidak bermasalah jika jumlahnya seimbang. Tapi, jika tidak harmonis akan muncul gangguan seperti karies (gigi berlubang), penyakit peyangga gigi (periodental) atau infeksi. Karies yang masih kecil dan belum begitu dalam mungkin tidak mengganggu, tetapi jika dibiarkan akan terjadi infeksi/pembusukan. Jika gusi sudah terinfeksi, pembuluh darah yang terbuka karena gusi berdarah menjadi jalan masuk bakteri. Kuman masuk di peredaran darah maka akan mengakibatkan berbagai penyakit.

Macam-macam pembusukan pada gigi:
1. Pembusukan di permukaan yang licin/rata: yaitu jenis pembusukan yang paling bisa dicegah, diperbaiki, dan tumbuhnya paling lambat. Sebuah karies dimulai dengan bintik hitam. Disitu bakteri melarutkan kalsium dari email. Pembusukan jenis ini biasanya mulai pada usia 20-30 tahun.

2. Pembusukan lubang dan lekukan: dimulai pada usia belasan tahun, mengenai gigi tetap dan tumbuhnya cepat. Terbentuk pada gigi belakang, didalam lekukan yang sempit pada permukaan gigi untuk mengunyah, dan bagian gigi yang berhadapan dengan pipi karena di bagian ini sulit untuk dibersihkan.

3. Pembusukan pada akar gigi: Terjadi karena penderita sulit untuk membersihkan daerah pada akar gigi. Biasanya terjadi pada usia pertengahan akhir. Pembusukan akar merupakan jenis pembusukan yang paling sulit dicegah, terjadi pada lapisan gigi yang paling luar dan keras. Tumbuhnya perlahan dan bila menembus ke lapisan kedua (dentin, lebih lunak), pembusukan menyebar cepat dan masuk ke pulpa (lapisan gigi paling dalam yang mengandung saraf dan pembuluh darah).

Tooth And Treatment

You feel your teeth are healthy enough, because you never feel toothache, or pain when eating foods that are cold or sweet. But it true that your teeth healthy? Not necessarily. If your teeth begin to turn yellow due to coffee habit, or gums look thinner, it was a sign you are also going through a serious dental problem. For that, consider the following practices to determine whether the health of your teeth is enough security.

1. Brushing your teeth too hard
Using a toothbrush with hard bristles, coupled with the pressure that is too strong when brushing your teeth, can damage the protective enamel of the tooth permanently. This has lead to sensitive teeth and tooth cavity and also causes the gums back (thinned). We recommend using a toothbrush with soft fur, then brush with a circular motion for 2 minutes, at least 2 times a day. Toothbrush with a slim head can move easily within the mouth is small, while the long handle of the brush is more able to reach the rear molars than short.

2. The wrong toothpaste
Do not immediately believe the toothpaste that claimed to contain a variety of useful materials. Some of the toothpaste, particularly those designed as "tartar control" can cause abrasion. Toothpaste containing rough granules can erode tooth enamel and cause gum thinning. Use toothpaste that contains fluoride.

3. Not using dental floss
Bacteria on the teeth can develop into plaque, the primary cause cavities and gum disease. Use dental floss 1 time a day to get rid of plaque.

4. Often drinking soft drinks
Soft drinks contain a lot fosforik acid, which over time can erode teeth. If you used to enjoy this drink, use a straw to minimize direct contact with gear fluid. Do not forget to brush your teeth afterwards.

5. Foods that leave stains
Tooth enamel is like a sponge. Food / drinks that leave stains on plates or cups, such as coffee, tea, drinks berkola, marinara sauce, or soy sauce, will also make the teeth gradually become yellow. Ask your dentist to perform laser whitening treatments, bleaching, or Prophy Power, a new procedure in which sodium bicarbonate (soft bleach) mixed with a strong blast of water to remove the stain without losing enamel. Toothpaste with a little bleach can indeed whiten teeth, but tend to be too sharp for the enamel.

6. Fond of snacking
Every time you eat something, especially a sweet or starchy, bacteria that normally live in the mouth will create an acid to break down food. However, these acids can also attack the teeth, causing tooth decay. Instead, choose fruits and vegetables are crisp (like apples or carrots), either as a side dish or as a snack. Dental health experts consider these foods as a natural toothbrush because of its effect on plaque-like detergents. Chewing sugarless gum like Xylitol also helps prevent cavities, by increasing the flow of saliva. Saliva flowing will repel the bacteria that cause cavities.

7. Using the teeth as tools
Open a bag of chips made of aluminum foil and loosen the knot using a tooth can cause tooth was cracked and broken, and damage to dental work is being done. Other Habits that damage the teeth is chewing ice cubes, chocolate that has been frozen, or candy.

8. Ignoring a dental problem
Bleeding gums, and who had chronic halitosis, is an indication of gum disease. To cope with bad breath, drink enough water to keep the mouth moist, and remove excess bacteria with pengerok tongue (many are sold in pharmacies). To prevent bleeding gums, brush your teeth regularly and using dental floss. Immediately to the doctor if not cured.

9. Avoiding the dentist
It is advisable to check the health of your teeth 2 times a year, but this suggestion seems likely to be ignored. In fact, if the gums have a problem, at least we have the control to the doctor every 3 months.

10. Ignoring lip
No matter how good the condition of your teeth, your smile will not look bright if allowed to dry lips and chapped. The skin on the lips, the thinner skin than others, tend to lose moisture and change with age. Using a moisturizing lip balm with every day would be very helpful.

Tawas Dapat Mengurangi Bau Badan

Friday, November 19, 2010
Keringat kita dihasilkan oleh dua kelenjar, yaitu kelenjar accrine dan kelenjar apocrine. Kelenjar accrine memproduksi keringat bening dan tidak berbau yang dikeluarkan sejak bayi, dan biasanya muncul di tangan, punggung, serta dahi. Sedangkan kelenjar apocrine terdapat di tempat-tempat tertentu, terutama di daerah perakaran rambut seperti ketiak, kemaluan, dan di dalam hidung. Kelenjar apocrine bersifat aktif setelah masa pubertas. Kelenjar accrine mengeluarkan cairan yang banyak mengandung air dan tidak berbau. Cairan tersebut berfungsi menurunkan kondisi tubuh pada waktu tertentu. Sedangkan kelenjar apocrine mengandung asam lemak jenuh dengan cairan lebih kental dan berminyak.

Sebenarnya, cairan yang dihasilkan oleh kelenjar apocrine hanya berbau lemak. Namun, karena di setiap helai rambut terdapat satu apocrine dan mengandung bakteri yang berperan dalam proses pembusukan, maka timbul bau badan yang tak sedap. Terkadang ada orang yang mempunyai kelenjar apocrine lebih besar, sehingga produksi keringatnya lebih besar dan pembusukan bakterinya juga lebih banyak. Jika kelenjar apocrine mengeluarkan keringat sedikit tapi kita tidak membersihkannya dan kemudian tercampur bakteri, bau badan pun akan muncul di tubuh kita. Apalagi jika kita sering menyantap makanan protein tinggi, seperti daging kambing (karena dapat melebarkan pembuluh darah), durian, bawang goreng, merokok, minuman keras, dan obat antibiotika.

Banyak cara yang dilakukan untuk menghilangkan bau badan tak sedap, salah satunya adalah dengan menggunakan tawas setelah mandi. Tawas (Alumen, K2 Al2 SO4 H2O) adalah salah satu jenis batu-batuan, warnanya putih, bening, semi transparan. Sifat tawas yang kedap air biasa digunakan dalam kandungan deodorant/roll-on yang berfungsi untuk mencegah keringat dan bau badan. Penggunaan tawas yang baik adalah mengoleskan langsung batu tawas di ketiak.

Konsumsi Daging & Dampaknya Untuk Kesehatan

Thursday, November 18, 2010
Daging masih menjadi makanan favorit banyak orang dibandingkan sayuran. Tetapi tanpa disadari, masyarakat semestinya sudah mulai mengurangi konsumsi daging karena daging bisa merusak lingkungan dan kesehatan, dan harus perbanyak dengan konsumsi sayur dan ikan. Daging yang terhidang di piring adalah sesuatu yang prosesnya boros energi, merusak lingkungan, tidak efektif, dan menjadi pemicu beragam penyakit. Untuk setiap 1 kg daging sapi, butuh 6,5 kg jagung dan dedaunan.Sedangkan untuk menghasilkan 1 kg daging kambing, butuh 4,5 kg. Ini boros. Termasuk boros air, karena hewan butuh banyak air.

Proses penggemukan hewan ternak dilakukan dengan obat-obatan kimia, hal ini jelas tidak sehat. Industri daging juga berkontribusi pada terjadinya pemanasan global. Artinya adalah pola makan kita harus cepat diubah. Kurangi banyak konsumsi daging, dan perbanyak menu nabati. Memang sulit mengubah kebiasaan masyarakat yang telanjur suka dengan daging dan menempatkan daging sebagai makanan bergengsi. Daging itu tak perlu dikonsumsi (karena tubuh tak membutuhkan) dan manusia bisa hidup sehat hanya dengan makan sayur dan buah (tumbuhan).

Saat ini masyarakat memang seakan terus digiring oleh pasar konsumen besar dan iklan-iklan untuk gemar memakan daging, terutama dengan hadirnya restoran-restoran fast food yang mudah sekali ditemui karena bertebaran dimana-mana. Kita kerap terlupa ketika dihadapi pilihan makanan dari olahan daging, darimana asal daging tersebut, lupa bahwa hewan ternak itu digemukkan dengan zat kimia, lupa bahwa daging itu sumber penyakit, lupa bahwa sudah banyak orang jatuh sakit akibat kebanyakan makan daging dan juga jeroan. Dan parahnya, industri sekarang menggiring masyarakat terutama anak-anak untuk banyak mengkonsumsi daging. Kita sebagai penentu pilihan makanan mana yang bermanfaat bagi kita (juga untuk keluarga ), hendaknya memutuskan apa yang perlu mengkonsumsi daging atau tidak.

Mie Instan, Berbahayakah?

Sunday, November 14, 2010
Sudah bukan hal yang baru lagi jika sering memakan mie instan memang tidak menyehatkan. Tetapi, sebenarnya mie instan tidak berbahaya untuk dikonsumsi. Jika setiap hari memakan mie instan dampaknya tentu membahayakan kesehatan, terutama merusak organ ginjal. Karena kadar natrium dalam mie instan akan menetralkan lambung, sehingga lambung akan mensekresi asam yang lebih banyak untuk mencerna makanan. Keadaan asam lambung yang tinggi akan mengakibatkan pengikisan dinding lambung dan menyebabkan rasa perih. Dalam proses pembuatannya, mie instan yang mempunyai bentuk sangat panjang dilipat, digoreng, dan dikeringkan dengan oven panas. Dalam proses penggorengan ini, mie akan mengandung lemak.

Bagi penderita hipertensi, natrium akan meningkatkan hipertensi, natrium akan meningkatkan tekanan darah karena ketidakseimbangan antara bumbu-bumbu yang terdapat dalam kemasan makanan instan, mengandung bahan pengawet, kadar MSG, dan garam yang tinggi. Apabila bahan pengawet dan MSG ini dikonsumsi secara terus-menerus secara berkepanjangan maka akan berdampak buruk pada kesehatan. Kandungan utama yang lain dari mie adalah karbohidrat, protein tepung (gluten), dan lemak, baik yang dari mie nya sendiri maupun minyak sayur dalam sachet. Jika dilihat komposisi gizinya, mie memang tinggi kalori, tapi kurang zat-zat gizi penting lain seperti vitamin, mineral dan serat.


Tips memasak mie instan agar lebih aman.
masak air sampai mendidih, dengan takaran air dua kali lebih banyak dibandingkan masakan mie instan dengan cara biasa. Jika air sudah benar-benar mendidih, pisahkan air menjadi dua bagian misalnya anda tuang ke dalam dua panci yang berbeda. Masukkan mie ke panci pertama dan didihkan kembali. Tunggu hingga air menjadi agak menguning, setelah itu, angkat dan tiriskan.

Oleh sebab itu, kurangilah makan makanan yang serba instan terutama mie instan. Lebih baik menjaga kesehatan daripada mengalami sakit.

Menjaga Kesuburan Rambut

Memiliki Rambut yang panjang dan lebat adalah dambaan setiap orang terutama kaum wanita, namun kadang kita merasa tidak percaya diri saat rambut rontok dan susah tumbuh panjang, tetapi tidak perlu frustasi selama usia masih memungkinkan untuk tumbuh rambut yang panjang dan indah.

Berikut tips yang bisa membantu mengatasi masalah rambut:
1. Buatlah aliran darah dikepala menjadi lancar sehingga pasokan nutrisi menjadi lebih banyak menuju ke arah rambut.
Caranya:
- Pijat kulit kepala dengan ujung jari setiap hari, lakukan kapan saja pada waktu keramas atau pada waktu kering
- Tundukkan kepala sebelum tidur, sikat rambut dengan lembut mulai akar sampai ujung rambut
- Rutinlah olah raga yang memacu kekuatan jantung seperti aerobik, jogging dan lain-lain, sehingga memacu jantung untuk mempompa nutrisi lebih cepat ke seluruh tubuh dan juga memasok sampai ke kepala.

2. Hilangkan ujung rambut yang rusak
Rambut yang rusak dan bercabang bisa merambat ke batang rambut sehingga batang rambut ikut rusak jika tidak di rawat. Jika dibiarkan terlalu lama seluruh rambut dapat menjadi rusak,
Cara pencegahanya: kunjungi penata rambut/salon langganan setiap 8-10 minggu sekali, dan minta ia untuk men-trim ujung rambut. Tegaskan bahwa Anda hendak memanjangkan rambut sehingga ia hanya memotong ujung-ujung rambut yang pecah- pecah saja. Biasanya penata rambut tersebut akan memotong dalam keadaan kering karena sangat sukar mendeteksi ujung rambut yang pecah dalam keadaan basah.

3. Biarkan kulit kepala bernapas
Rambut yang tertutup terus menerus akan membuat minyak dan kotoran menumpuk pada akar rambut sehingga kulit tidak bisa bernapas. Hal ini akan membuat pertumbuhan rambut menjadi terganggu. Agar pertumbuhan rambut berjalan baik, maka jaga agar kulit kepala senantiasa bersih. Jika Anda sering berkeringat, atau rambut sering berminyak maka tidak ada salahnya untuk melakukan keramas tiap hari dengan menggunakan sampo yang sangat lembut. Jangan lupakan pula akan kebersihan perangkat rias rambut, terutama sisir. Sisir dan sikat rambut yang kotor membuat kotoran menumpuk kembali menempel di rambut dan kulit kepala tiap kali kita memakainya.

4. Manjakan rambut Anda
Perlu diketahui bahwa rambut panjang adalah rambut yang tua dan cenderung rapuh, karena itu perlakukan dengan sangat hati-hati.Pilih shampo yang lembut dengan kandungan pelembap. Jikamenggunakan hairdryer, catok dan sebagainya, olesi dengan kondisoner dan serum setelah keramas tanpa dibilas. Berguna untuk melindungi rambut dari suhu tinggi. Seminggu sekali gunakan masker rambut. Selain itu, cermati cara Anda menata rambut. Jangan terlalu sering mengikat rambut ke belakang dengan kencang. Akan membuat rambut mudah patah.

Luka Bakar & Penanganannya

Thursday, October 7, 2010
Luka bakar bisa terjadi dimana saja mulai dari terciprat minyak goreng hingga tersiram air panas. Banyak yang memakai odol atau minyak untuk mengobatinya tapi ternyata cara itu salah. Kulit yang terkena luka bakar biasanya terasa panas dan melepuh sehingga menimbulkan rasa tak nyaman di badan. Masyarakat seringkali mengobati luka bakar dengan mengoleskan odol, margarin atau minyak. Padahal hal tersebut tak diperbolehkan, karena itu bukanlah pilihan yang benar.

Jika diolesi dengan odol atau margarin maka bisa menutupi kulit dan menghambat cairan yang akan keluar dari dalam tubuh dan juga bisa menghambat petugas medis untuk mengobati. Bila luka bakar yang dihasilkan kecil misal hanya terciprat minyak goreng, maka setelah luka dibersihkan bisa diolesi dengan salep bakar disekitar kulit yang terbakar. Tapi jika lukanya besar misal tersiram air panas maka setelah dibersihkan harus dibawa kerumah sakit.

Beberapa tips penanganan pertama pada korban penderita luka bakar :
  1. Korban jauhkan dari sumber panas.
  2. Jangan diolesi cairan seperti odol, minyak goreng, kecap, ataupun minyak tanah karena akan memperdalam luka bakar.
  3. Nyalakan kran air/ledeng, lalu alirkan air tersebut ke arah bagian tubuh yang terkena luka bakar selama 10-20 menit. Ini dilakukan untuk menurunkan suhu panas yang diakibatkan luka bakar tersebut.
Hal yang dilarang jika terjadi luka bakar:
  1. Jangan memakai air es atau es batu atau mencemplungkan diri dalam bak mandi, karena perubahan suhu yang tiba-tiba (antara panas dan dingin) akan memperdalam luka bakar.
  2. Apabila luka bakar yang dialami serius, seperti luka bakar yang dialami oleh korban ledakan gas elpiji, maka yang harus dilakukan adalah: Buka baju korban, lepaskan cincin, jam, atau barang apapun yang melekat pada diri korban, selimuti tubuh korban dengan selimut bersih, korban bawa ke rumah sakit.
