Overweight is a risk factor that, together with arterial hypertension, glucose and blood lipid alterations, causes the so-called «metabolic syndrome», a disorder that leads to ischemic heart and vascular diseases.

Obesity and endocrinological diseases have a double link: on the one hand, certain endocrinological factors produce obesity and, on the other hand, obesity produces endocrinological alterations.

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Cushing’s syndrome
  • Growth hormone deficiency

Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy. Still, if you might feel like your smile is lacking some sparkle or is more yellow than it used to be, you’re not alone.

When the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry asked people what they’d most like to improve about their smile, the most common response was whiter teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists also found that nearly 90% of patients requested tooth whitening.

Over time, your teeth can go from white to not-so-bright for a number of reasons. Coffee, tea and red wine are some major staining culprits. What do they have in common? Intense color pigments called chromogens that attach to the white, outer part of your tooth.

Two chemicals found in tobacco create stubborn stains: Tar and nicotine. Tar is naturally dark. Nicotine is colorless until it’s mixed with oxygen. Then, it turns into a yellowish, surface-staining substance.

Find your hormonal balance and enjoy a diet that meets your needs.

Let's fight obesity

Obesity is a chronic disease characterized by excessive accumulation of body fat. It often begins in childhood and adolescence, although it can occur at any age. It is considered multifactorial, as it can originate from genetics, medical problems or lifestyle.

The endocrine system and nutrition are closely related and their health and balance are essential to enjoy well-being and quality of life.

The endocrine system, for example, produces hormones that regulate important systems such as the nervous, digestive, reproductive and cardiovascular systems.

On the other hand, nutrition has an impact on the functioning of our organism. It is one of the pillars of health and if we take care of it we will feel better physically, mentally and help our body to prevent some diseases.

Whitening Preparation &
How it's being done

Whitening can be done in the dental office or at home. For in-office whitening, your dentist probably will photograph your teeth first. This step will help him or her to monitor the progress of the treatment. Your dentist also will examine your teeth and ask you questions to find out what caused the staining.

Next, the dentist or a dental hygienist will clean your teeth. This will remove the film of bacteria, food and other substances that build up on your teeth and contribute to the staining. Once this is done, the whitening procedure begins. For whitening at home, your dentist can make trays to hold the whitening gel that fit your teeth precisely.

Home whitening gel usually needs to be applied daily for two to three weeks. Over-the-counter kits also are widely available for home use. They provide trays to hold the gel, or whitening strips that stick to your teeth. Talk to your dentist if you want to use these home products. Be sure to follow directions to avoid overuse and possible damage to your teeth and mouth.
