Periowave Viene a México!

México siempre ha sido uno de mis lugares favoritos, principalmente por la gente  cálida y vibrante. Hace 20 años tuve la grata experiencia de hacer negocios en México, cuando trabajaba en la gestión de cartera en un gran banco Canadiense. A principios del mes tuve el gran placer de atender a la reciente conferencia anual de la Asociación Mexicana de Periodontología en Guadalajara, Jalisco.

Ha causado gran orgullo en mí que nuestro sistema de fotodesinfección Periowave haya sido aprobado  por las autoridades regulatorias mexicanas y que Periowave acaba de sostener su primeros talleres para especialistas periodontales en México. Nuestro Director de Tecnologías de información, el Dr. Nicolás Loebel presentó cinco conferencias durante los 3 días que estuvimos en Guadalajara.

Periowave’s Coming To Mexico!

Mexico has long since been one of my favourite countries due primarily to her warm and vibrant people. I have a history with business in Mexico going back over 20 years when I was a portfolio manager for a large Canadian bank.

Can Dry Mouth Lead To Gum Disease?

Dry mouth, or xerostomia, is an unpleasant condition where insufficient saliva is produced to keep the mouth moist and comfortable. It can be due to several different reasons, as it can be a side-effect of existing health conditions such as diabetes, Parkinson’s disease,or Alzheimer’s, or it can be due to tobacco use, and some cancer treatments can permanently damage the salivary glands, reducing saliva production.

Sometimes it can be down to medication, as certain drugs, especially those used to treat depression and anxiety, or to treat Parkinson’s disease or medication for high blood pressure, can create dry mouth as a side-effect. Xerostomia can also be as a result of nerve damage to the head and neck area. Older people are also more likely to suffer from dry mouth, not because aging is a risk factor for this condition, but because they are more likely to suffer from health conditions which may cause dry mouth, and are more likely to be on medication that can exacerbate the condition.
