Here’s Why You NEED to See the Dentist- Even if You’re an Adult

Dental hygiene is critical for your health. You can’t be a healthy, thriving human being and ignore your teeth. Don’t let a vague fear of dentist stop you from taking care of your mouth. In addition to brushing and flossing regularly, you also need to see the dentist. If you’re riddled with anxiety, you can also see a sedation dentist who will address your concerns to ensure your comfortability throughout any procedures you might need. You’ll be sedated during your appointment so you don’t have to experience the pain and stress sometimes associated with dental visits.

Is petroleum jelly suitable for cuts and wounds?

Petroleum jelly aka Vaseline is a versatile product that has innumerable health, beauty and skin care uses. For minor cuts and burns, application of vaseline is recommended to protect the skin and lock in the moisture. Even the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends the use of petroleum jelly for wound care!
