Visiting a dentist once a year is definitely a good idea. Having an annual check-up can certainly reduce the likelihood of a serious problem going undetected. However, there might be a better plan of action to follow than seeing the dentist once every 12 months. To keep those pearly whites in their best condition possible plan to set up appointments with your dental clinic twice a year. Yes, that means it is recommended you see your dentist at approximately once every six months.

Not everyone will agree that visiting a dentist twice a year is necessary. The assumption might be that a problem is not likely to arise only six months after having sat in the dentist’s chair. While this may be true, it is also true that dental problems can arise at anytime and go on to remain undetected. The more often you visit your detnal clinic, the less likely it becomes that you have to endure serious and troubling dental procedures. Remember, when you don’t know what to look for it is easy not to notice dental problems brewing.

The more serious a dental problem is, the more invasive the treatment to reverse the condition is going to be. Experiencing the drilling and filling of a cavity is not exactly enjoyable. Not very many people look forward to going to their dental clinic to have a cavity filled. Such reluctance is understandable. What also has to be understood here is that, while a cavity is never a joy to deal with, visiting a dentist for root canal work is going to be even less enjoyable.

The way in which a cavity worsens to the point root canal is unavoidable is when the problem remains untreated for too long. Rather than seeing a problem such as this occur, it would be far better to visit a dentist at least twice a year.

Visiting your dentist twice a year is recommended for people of any age, but is even more highly advised as you, and your teeth, get older. No matter how well you care for your teeth, tooth decay becomes unavoidable as you age since the condition of one’s teeth becomes harder to maintain beyond middle age. Tooth decay is an unavoidable aspect of the aging process. Thankfully, there are ways in which the first three stages of tooth decay can be treated at dental clinics. Unfortunately, when tooth decay reaches the fourth stage, nothing can be done to treat it other than extracting the troubled teeth.

By setting up appointments with your dental clinic twice a year, the right treatment for the teeth can be performed at the right time. If the problem is caught in an early stage you might even be able to treat the problem in the least invasive manner possible saving you pain, time and money!

Statistics are commonly used to measure performance of historical data and for a purpose of forecasting future events. Business managers or leaders will use business statistics for insight about performance goals and objectives. People use data to forecast trends in the marketplace and forecast possible future events. Statistics are used every day for planning purposes in any area of thought.

Trade and commerce use business statistics in almost every area. Policies are formulated by the government based on statistics of what types of policies are working and those policies that are not. Feedback from studies and surveys often provide enough information to alter business initiatives and make process changes to improve an organization.

Advertising companies use business statistics to look at the overall marketplace and competitors. Business statistics help them determine which methods of advertising are beneficial to the customers and which methods are a waste of money. Statistics help advertisers understand which audience is most likely to buy a product, which area is the best to sell a product, how to price a product, what the customers expect, and much more. This type of information can be gathered through surveying the customers and analyzing the overall data.

Online businesses must use business statistics so they can remain competitive in the marketplace. The web is a very competitive world and data must be gathered so these companies know which techniques work the best for website ranking, keywords, attracting the users, and more. There are so many issues that companies come up with on the web and they must do a lot of research before they can begin to compete. In addition, a web business’s competition is worldwide rather than focused on a small local community like a brick and mortar store.

Business statistics are used in almost every industry and organization to make decisions based on historical data or current data, and to help make future decisions and projections. Information can be gathered by sending out surveys to relevant people.

Frenchman’s Harbor is Toll Brothers newest development in the Jupiter to Palm Beach Gardens area. Long recognized as “America’s Luxury Home Builder”, Toll Brothers constructed developments in this area including Frenchman’s Reserve and the Jupiter Country Club where golf course designed by Arnold Palmer and Greg Norman are the centerpieces.

When the real estate boom went bust, they put the brakes on further projects until now.

In Juno Beach, they have begun construction on Frenchman’s Harbor which will offer waterfront residences directly on the Intracoastal Waterway across from Frenchman’s Creek and just south of Admirals Cove. These homes, all offering dockage, are the newest waterfront homes to go up here in several years. New homes have been built, but not as part of a total community.

The community is located where Donald Ross Road meets Ellison Wilson Road on the east side of the Intracoastal. There are no fixed bridges between here and the ocean either through the Jupiter Inlet to the north or the Lake Worth Inlet to the south.

These luxury, waterfront homes will start around $ 600,000 and go up to several million depending on the location and size. The amenity package will include very high ceilings with crown molding, granite counters in the kitchens, stainless steel appliances and executive floor plans.

Dockage will be for yachts to 115 feet. If you have a yacht larger than this, you might want to consider Loggerhead Marina across the street, Soverel Harbour near PGA Boulevard or Old Port Cove in North Palm Beach where Tiger Woods keeps his 155 ft. yacht “Privacy”.

Construction is underway with waterways dug and seawalls in. Now comes the landscaping and the first part to go in is always the trees, especially those in the hard to get at spots, like along the bridge.

If you have been considering a home along the water here and don’t want either a spec house in an older neighborhood or the costly memberships of some of the waterfront clubs, Frenchman’s Harbor might be just the community for you.

Nineteen of South Africa’s beaches have been awarded a coveted Blue Flag from the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), six of those beaches are in Cape Town, four in Port Elizabeth and four on the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal. Blue Flag status means that a beach has achieved and maintained international standards regarding safety, cleanliness and amenities. It also demonstrates commitment to environmental conservation/preservation.

Application for Blue Flag status is purely voluntary, and in South Africa is managed by the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa, the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism and relevant coastal authorities. INineteen of South Africa’s beaches have been awarded a coveted Blue Flag from the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), six of those beaches are in Cape Town, four in Port Elizabeth and four on the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal. Blue Flag status means that a beach has achieved and maintained international standards regarding safety, cleanliness and amenities. It also demonstrates commitment to environmental conservation/preservation.

Application for Blue Flag status is purely voluntary, and in South Africa is managed by the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa, the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism and relevant coastal authorities. Initially a European initiative, in 2001 it expanded to include international beaches and South Africa was one of the first countries in the queue for inspection. That first year only four SA beaches were awarded Blue Flag status, but the number has been climbing and peaked at 20 beaches in 2005 and 2006.

Currently more than 3,300 beaches are part of the Blue Flag programme in countries all around the world, including, Bulgaria, Croatia, Iceland, Turkey, Jamaica, Romania and Scotland. Countries that haven’t quite reached Blue Flag status yet, but are in the pilot phase of the programme include Tunisia, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Malta, Brazil and Aruba. South Africa has 16 beaches in the pilot phase and hopes that they will achieve Blue Flag status in time for the Soccer World Cup in 2010. These beaches include: Fish Hoek (Cape Town), Kleinmond (Hermanus), Cannon Rocks (Eastern Cape) and Trafalgar (Hibiscus Coast Municipality).

The SA beaches who met the FEE’s standards of Environmental Education and Information, Water Quality, Environmental Management and Safety and Services include:

o Dolphin Beach (Jeffrey’s Bay – Eastern Cape)

o Hobie Beach (Port Elizabeth – Eastern Cape)

o Kelly’s Beach (Port Alfred – Eastern Cape)

o Bikini Beach (Gordon’s Bay – Western Cape)

o Camps Bay Beach (Cape Town – Western Cape)

o Hawston Beach (Hermanus – Western Cape)

o Muizenberg Beach (Cape Town – Western Cape)

o Margate Beach (South coast – KwaZulu-Natal)

o Ramsgate Beach (South coast – KwaZulu-Natal)

Durban (KwaZulu-Natal) is still smarting after having the Blue Flag status of six beaches revoked earlier in the year. The beaches were found to have an ‘unacceptably high’ level of sewage-related pollution in the water and haven’t been able to rectify the problem as yet.

No one ever really enjoys a visit to any medical practitioner. However, we all must have regular checkups for the sake of our health. One particular doctor, that you might not clearly understand is the orthodontist.

Just as you may have specialist doctors like cardiologists, orthodontists are specialist dentists. These medical practitioners concern themselves with treating malocclusions (improper bites), that normally result from disproportionate jaw relationships and/ or tooth irregularities. Basically, they offer to fix crooked teeth, correct overcrowding of teeth and give you perfectly symmetrical teeth and jaw alignment that can make for a perfect smile.

Why would anyone want a really good smile? Well, simply because your personal appearance has an effect on how you feel and think about yourself. Furthermore, a report by the Brigham Young University-Idaho reveals just how much your personal appearance can affect the manner in which others react or respond towards you.

Fortunately, visits to the orthodontist don’t require referrals from a dentist. You can simply arrange for an appointment and have an evaluation of your personal dental needs.

Visit A Certified Orthodontist

When selecting the right orthodontist who will provide proper professional service, you must consider only one who is certified by the Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO). Your orthodontist should be a member of this professional association which ensures that high professional and ethical standards are promoted and maintained by all its members. Without this certification, the orthodontist would not be accountable and seeking recourse for any malpractice might be much more difficult.

Membership in the Australian Society of Orthodontists follows strict guidelines that each orthodontist must abide by. These entail high levels of qualifications that ensure the practice carried out by such an orthodontist will cater to patients’ needs and will be to the best possible standards. The requirements include:

All members of the Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO), must complete a five-year degree in Dentistry (Bachelor of Science). This provides the main foundational knowledge in core biomedical, as well as dental sciences, so that an orthodontist can also understand the medical, community and social context of the dental clinical practice. This is where your orthodontist learns a good bedside manner and develops the proper etiquette in handling patients in a humane, understanding and caring manner. With this qualification, an orthodontist would be eligible to receive certification by the Dental Board of Australia and practice dentistry in all states and territories within Australian.

A full-time 3-year Orthodontics Masters Degree, which represents 4,000+ hours of dedicated post-graduate education as a specialist. This is the stage at which orthodontists acquire the specialist skill to diagnose, prevent and treat orthodontic problems. The master’s degree program also equips orthodontists with the expertise to effectively use different types of appliances including clear aligner trays, braces and retainers. Such appliances are used in moving teeth or holding them in new positions.

Offering year round pleasant weather, posh resorts and the chance to rub shoulders with the rich and famous, Palm Springs, California is the destination for nearly half a million people annually. Joining those who have strolled down historic Palm Canyon Drive and immersing yourself in the luxury of the natural mineral hot springs are only a couple of options that promise a visit filled with fun and relaxation is a hub of activity nestled at the eastern base of the San Jacinto Mountains.

With an awe inspiring view of the mountains to the west and the beauty of the stark desert all around, the Coachella Valley has been home to Palm Springs since the early 1800’s. During this initial time period, the Cahuilla Indians, known as the Agua Caliente Indians, were the primary inhabitants, living around the hot springs in the winter months and moving to the mountain canyons during the excruciating heat of the desert floor in the summer. These Indians were the beginning of civilization in Palm Springs, and many of their customs were carried on, through the generations that followed.

It wasn’t until 1852 with the invasion of the Mormons, the Indians were “introduced to civilization” which however proved fatal to them considering their interaction with white men resulted in vast numbers of them falling victim to the small pox epidemic. This left their numbers at a shocking low of only 70 living members remaining in Palm Springs, and in 1925 only 50 were counted. Today their numbers have risen to well over 400 active tribe members that continue to care for their land and provide a constant reminder to the origins of the city.

Playing an important part in the captivating history of Palm Springs, the early 1900’s ushered in the Hollywood society who began to use the desert oasis as their playground. With the upswing in the number of visitors came the growth of the economy in the form of resorts, tennis clubs, gambling and a shocking number of new residents which required the placement of an airport to support the rapidly increasing flow of visitors daily that preferred air travel. In a short time, the Palm Springs Airport evolved from a small military installation, formerly constructed as a protective measure during the war in 1939, to an ever growing popular land mark that now proudly includes state of the art security, separate baggage claims area, expanded concessions, numerous specialty shops, and the creation of a controlled play area for children. As airports go, this one is definitely in keeping with the overall tone and energy of Palm Springs — relaxation and pampering.

The Historical Society of Palm Springs has opened two original structures remaining intact from the late 1800’s as a part of their collection of the history of this unforgettable city, in an attempt to educate local residents and visitors alike about the people and events that were instrumental in creating Palm Springs. Available for viewing by the public are some vintage collector’s items giving you a personal chance to experience and remember a bygone era. The first of the buildings housing this amazing collection of the past is The Adobe House, built by John McCallum.

He is remembered as the first white settler who moved from San Francisco in 1884 with his family to begin a new life here. He is also remembered for providing the first fresh spring water made available to Palm Springs by building a 19 mile rock lined ditch running from the Whitewater River into Palm Springs, with the aid of some of the local Indians. The second landmark construction is an original home built in 1893, out of railroad ties, by Dr. Welwood Murray who is referred to as the first hotelier of Palm Springs. Named “Miss Cornelia’s Little House”, it was purchased in 1913 by Miss Cornelia White and her sister Dr. Florilla White. Located in the Village Green Heritage Center on historic Palm Canyon Drive, it carries visitors back in time to the pioneer era with the antiques and pictures depicting the life back then. Palm Springs Real Estate is now booming and people from all over the world come out to play golf, relax and enjoy the never ending sunshine and great weather here in the Coachella Valley.

The Palm SpringsTram, considered to be one of the greatest engineering feats of the 20th Century, and takes visitors from the valley floor to the top of Mount San Jacinto mountain station which is more than 8500 feet above sea level.

Right toothbrush ?

The key thing about choosing a toothbrush is that it should be capable of cleaning all the reachable tooth surfaces in your mouth. This argues for a smaller, rather than larger brush-head. Straight-handled toothbrushes suit some people; kinkily-handled ones suit others. Which you prefer depends partly on the shape of your mouth and partly on the ability of your hands and wrists to manipulate the head of the brush to the remoter back corners of your mouth. The important thing is that it must do the work for you.

Soft-bristle brushes are not really capable of removing plaque; they merely smear it over the surface of the teeth. On the other hand, very hard bristles can act like wire-wool on the gums, or indeed the teeth. A medium-hard, firm-bristled toothbrush is the best for both teeth and gums. Organic bristles, as opposed to nylon or other synthetic material, tend to become too soft, and wear out very quickly. As they also take a long time to dry out they also have a tendency to harbour bacteria. This is one of those occasions when ‘artificial’ appears to be preferable to ‘natural’. It is also important to change your toothbrush regularly, as floppy, straggly bristles are just not up to plaque removal.

Electric toothbrushes

Modern electric toothbrushes have a rechargeable electric motor driving a standard or rotary head. Compared with an ordinary toothbrush they are very expensive; indeed an under-used argument for buying an electric toothbrush is that it costs so much that you feel you have to use it properly to justify the investment. And used properly it is very efficient.
