Chewing is a very natural physical activity for dogs, however you would not want to tolerate this kind of activity with them as this is quite unhealthy. Finding different solutions to stop dog chewing can be quite a challenge, but is not totally impossible.

Periodontists from Ohio Valley Center for Periodontics & Implants Now Offer Patients with Gum Disease in Milford, OH Laser Gum Surgery for Their Gum Disease Treatment
Milford, OH (PRWEB) April 21, 2013
Dr. Scott Silverstein and Dr. Matthew Parker of the Ohio Valley Center for Periodontics & Implants are now offering patients the new Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure as a modern alternative for periodontal treatment. LANAP uses the PerioLase MVP-7 which is the only FDA cleared laser for this treatment. The laser is highly selective and is designed for specific uses. It kills bacteria that causes gum disease and removes gum tissue that is infected or diseased. Gum tissue that has not been compromised by the disease is left unaffected by the laser. The laser stimulates the bone to begin regenerating so that deterioration stops.
Gum disease is a problem that millions of adults in the United States, as well as millions around the globe, are affected by. When bacteria, which are naturally found in the mouth, form plaque that is not checked by consistent dental hygiene, the plaque can harden and become tartar. Without regular dental checkups to remove tartar, the bacteria continue to multiply and attack the gums. The gums become sore and inflamed, and begin to move away from the teeth they protect. Spaces between the teeth and gums appear where bacteria gather into pockets. As the teeth are exposed, they begin to deteriorate and become loose, and may eventually fall out.
Many of the people who have gum disease have not sought treatment. Not only are they in danger of serious dental issues, but this disease has been connected to health problems as serious as heart disease, low birth-weight babies and pancreatic cancer, among others. By seeking treatment for this problem, people are reducing their risk for other illnesses and health problems. Dr. Silverstein and Dr. Parker hope that the advent of the new LANAP procedure will help to convince their Milford, OH dental patients to seek the treatment they need.

Ohio Valley Center for Periodontics & Implants is a periodontal practice offering patients personalized dental care for Cincinnati and Milford Ohio. Dr. Silverstein and Dr. Parker are part of one percent of dental professionals providing the most recent FDA cleared laser procedure for gum disease and periodontal treatment. They are both active members of the American Board of Periodontology and the American Academy of Periodontology.

I take the emergency exit row on a plane whenever I can get it. Who doesn’t, right? When the attendants come around and ask if you are willing and able to assist in the event of an emergency, I nod, but think to myself “My job ends once that door’s open then I’m outta here.” I’d like to think I would stick around and help carry out the elderly or infirm, but there is a deep and guilty part of me that thinks I wouldn’t. I would run away.
Running away is an easy way to deal with life. I run when I can because when the exit door’s open, it’s much easier than sticking around; trying to help, trying to change, trying to make things better. Easiest to leave and start over, when there’s a choice. And all I have to say to that is, I am not a good example of humanity and I know this.
When the horrific events of Boston unfolded today, I watched in dismay as did the rest of the world. Hours of “Who? Why?” over and over, 15 second Vine videos of the blast, screaming people running away. I turned it off after a bit. I, too, ran away. What were they going to say that made sense? Would someone step forward and say, “I did this, and this is why,” and that would somehow explain it? It was a horrific evil act regardless of the perpetrator’s identity or reasoning, and so I took a break from the nonstop onslaught of smoky images.
But I turned it back on later, to see if there was any new news. I saw that an eight year old died, a child the same age as my own, one who was likely there cheering on a loved one on a happy Patriot’s Day. And I held my head and turned away, but something in the images starting to come forward changed my mind, despite the despair, despite the urge to run from reality.
In the seconds after the blast, while confused runners and spectators were fleeing, I saw the first responders sprinting towards the victims. Knowing a second explosion had just hit and unsure if more explosions were coming, still, they ran towards those who needed them. I know a lot of these ‘Massholes’, as they call themselves. I grew up as one. I still drive like one. Massholes run towards.
I saw marathoners, who had planned this event for months and months, robbed in a moment of this happy journey, leave the course and continue running, towards the hospital to donate blood. Elite athletes are often accused of being selfish to the point of narcissism in their quest for glory. They, too, ran towards.
I saw other marathoners, paused on the roadside with their shirts off, tearing them into pieces to apply tourniquets to the victims. The one time I ran a marathon I couldn’t even remember my name by mile 23 and here they were, at the end, applying first aid knee to knee with spectators. All labels gone, just humans in the thick of things, compelled to run towards.
You may think you have your life on track and then without warning, reason, or explanation, it can derail in a second’s time, and until it happens, you have no idea of what kind of person you will be. And while there will always be crazy people and awful psychopaths and run of the mill jerks, I’m reminded of the fact that the reason we consider them sociopaths and villains is because most of us, yes, the vast majority of us, even those we don’t like or agree with most of the time, are good and want to support our fellow man, not drown him.
Not one of those people stopped to ask a victim, Romney or Obama?
Do you feed raw food or kibble?
Did you rescue your dog or buy a purebred?
Perspective is a precious gift we can find in the most wretched of circumstances. And on this day, I hope that if I ever find myself faced with a choice, I choose to run towards my fellow man.
