The flu season usually runs from November through March. Some years, cases continue into April and May. For the last 25 years, the heaviest flu activity has occurred in February.
Each year in the United States, on average, 5 to 20 percent of the population gets the flu. More than 250,000 people require hospitalization while about 36,000 die.
Influenza viruses can cause disease among people of any age, but rates of infection are highest among children. Serious illness and death are highest among persons ages 65 or older, and children ages 2 and younger. People of any age with certain medical conditions (e.g., congestive heart failure, asthma, diabetes), or who live in some type of long-term care facility are at risk for serious complications.
There are two types of influenza vaccine. The trivalent inactivated (killed) influenza vaccine, or TIV, may be used on any person age 6 months or older. This flu shot, an injection into muscle, usually is in the upper arm. The other is a live, attenuated (weakened) influenza vaccine, or LAIV, which is sprayed into the nostrils.
For most people, vaccination will prevent serious influenza-related illnesses. Vaccination will not prevent “flu-like” illnesses caused by other viruses. It takes two weeks for protection to develop after vaccination. So, vaccine that is given early in the flu season will provide a longer period of protection. Influenza vaccines can reduce infection in 70 to 90 percent of healthy adults under the age of 65.
Use the Section 179 deduction to decrease your 2011 tax payments and increase cash for your other needs!
Acquire capital Dental equipment in 2011, and you are most likely able to deduct up to $500,000! Capital leases qualify for a tax deduction for the year they are placed in service.
EFFECTIVE UNTIL DECEMBER 31st
If you intend to purchase real property or equipment, you can take advantage of this huge saving before the end of the year.
Here’s the summary:
Section 179 allows a taxpayer to elect to deduct the cost of certain types of property on their income taxes as an expense, rather than requiring the cost of the property to be capitalized and depreciated. This property is generally limited to tangible, depreciable, personal property which is acquired by purchase for use in the active conduct of a trade or business. Buildings were not eligible for section 179 deductions prior to the passage of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010; however, now qualified real property may be deducted.
The § 179 election is subject to three important limitations:
First, there is a dollar limitation. Under section 179(b)(1), the maximum deduction a taxpayer may elect to take in a year is $500,000.It is scheduled to stay at this amount for tax years beginning in 2010 and 2011.
Second, § 179(b)(2) requires taxpayers who place more than $2,000,000 worth of section 179 property into service during a single taxable year to reduce, dollar for dollar, their § 179 deduction by the amount exceeding the $2,000,000 threshold.
Finally, § 179(b)(3) provides that a taxpayer’s § 179 deduction for any taxable year may not exceed the taxpayer’s aggregate income from the active conduct of trade or business by the taxpayer for that year If, for example, the taxpayer’s net trade or business income from active conduct of trade or business was $72,500 in 2011, then the taxpayer’s § 179 deduction cannot exceed $72,500 for 2011. However, the § 179 deduction not allowed for any year because of this limitation can be carried over to the next year.
In order to change our patients’ attitudes about dental hygiene we need to use the right language. It is a dental hygiene appointment, it is a hygiene therapy appointment, or supportive periodontal hygiene therapy. It is a Comprehensive (or Conservative) Periodontal Therapy– CPT. It’s not just a “cleaning“. It is an important part of the patient’s health and healing and it’s essential to educate the patient on the oral health link with systemic health. Help your patients to value the hygiene appointment.
It is well documented that the same bacteria (primarily spirochetes) that harbor in the gums and are responsible for PD, are directly related to heart disease, strokes, lung disease, kidney failure, and premature underweight births. The bottom line is that EVERYONE must be agressive in the early discovery and treatment of PD- and it’s especially true for a systemically compromised person. A health history interview with every new patient (and “recall”) is essential.
Recent research has also shown a connection to Alzheimer’s Disease. http://wp.me/p1OXM3-2z
For several years dentists have been making the public aware of the connection between Periodontal (gum) Disease and many other systemic diseases. It is well documented that the same bacteria (primarily spirochetes) that harbor in the gums and are directly related to heart disease, strokes, lung disease, kidney failure, and premature underweight births.
The frequency of spirochetes is significantly higher in the brains of
Alzheimer patients compared to controls. The statistical analysis is
based on the cumulative data of the literature entered in the table
The association is statistically significant in the four groups analyzed:
in the group where all types of spirochetes were detected using
neutral techniques (All spirochetes), in the group of oral periodontal
pathogen spirochetes (Oral spirochetes), in the group where Borrelia
burgdorferi was detected alone (B. burgdorferi) and in the group
where all studies were considered (All studies).
Live web-cams for the 125th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty
On October 28th, as a part of the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty, five live web-cams were installed in Ms. Liberty’s torch, in her crown, and at the harbor. There’s also a Panorama of the NJ and NY skylines, Ellis Island, and the New York-New Jersey Harbor.
At 8:45 a.m. there was a Naturalization Ceremony, which honored the millions of U.S. immigrants who were first welcomed to America by Lady Liberty.

There’s live audio too, so you can hear the whoosh of aircraft overhead and the honk of boat horns as YOU watch the ships steam across the bay. Click on this link to look and listen:
There are many identified causes of halitosis. This article will deal with the oral causes and what you can do to manage them.
Chronic halitosis is not well understood by most physicians and dentists, so effective treatment is not always easy to find. The following strategies may be suggested:
- Gently cleaning the tongue surface twice daily is the most effective way to keep bad breath in control. Methods used to counter bad breath, such as mints, mouth sprays, mouthwash or gum, may only temporarily mask the odors created by the bacteria on the tongue. They cannot cure bad breath because they do not remove the source of the bad breath. Effective ways to clean the tongue would be to use a tongue scraper or a toothbrush.
- Eating a healthy breakfast with rough foods helps clean the very back of the tongue.
- Chewing gum: Since dry-mouth can increase bacterial buildup and cause or worsen bad breath, chewing sugarless gum can help with the production of saliva, which washes away oral bacteria, has antibacterial properties and promotes mechanical activity which helps cleanse the mouth.
- Gargling right before bedtime with an effective mouthwash. Mouthwashes may contain active ingredients that are inactivated by the soap present in most toothpastes. Thus it is recommended to refrain from using mouthwash directly after toothbrushing with paste.
- Maintaining proper oral hygiene, including daily tongue cleaning, brushing, flossing, and periodic visits to dentists. Flossing is particularly important in removing rotting food debris and bacterial plaque from between the teeth, especially at the gumline. Dentures should be properly cleaned and soaked overnight in antibacterial solution (unless otherwise advised by your dentist).
- Probiotic treatments, have been shown suppress malodor bacteria growth.
- Smoking Smoking’s contributions to bad breath include dry mouth and gum disease, and it can also increase your risk of oral and sinus infections.
