Causes of Toothache

Dr Azhar Sheikh
Toothache is a common dental problem and a top reason to make people visit the dentist. 9 out of 10 people with toothache have tooth decay. However, there are a lot of other reasons for toothache and  understanding them will to some extent help prevent toothache. In this article, we will discuss the probable causes for toothache.

1) Tooth decay – This is the most common cause of toothache. Small cavities affecting the outer layer (enamel) of the teeth are normally painless. But if the cavity/tooth decay penetrates through the enamel and effects the inner layer (dentin), your teeth becomes sensitive and when taking hot or cold food/drinks you may experience mild to sharp pain. And in the advanced stage, the decay progresses to the inner layer (pulp of the tooth) resulting in shooting, sharp pain. It can also lead to an abscess (pus) at the root tips.

2) Fractured or broken teeth due to falling/accidents – Broken or fractured teeth is often unnoticed can also cause severe toothache. Even if the fracture is not so deep, bacteria in the plaque can get into the cracks and can cause tooth decay.

3) Gum disease – Gum infection causes inflammation on gum and bone tissues, which leads to swelling, bone loss around the teeth and a dull pain. This is the advanced stage of gum disease which, can even cause pain in a healthy tooth.

4) Improper oral hygiene – Improper brushing and flossing can lead to plaque build up on teeth. Plaque on teeth for longer time can irritate gums. The bacteria in the plaque react with left over tiny food particles and forms acid. This acid attacks the tooth/teeth, which in turn leads to pain.

5) Teeth grinding (bruxism) – Many people have habit of teeth grinding during sleep. This can wear down your teeth enamel or chip out your teeth and make your teeth sensitive to hot or cold food/drinks.
Excessive pressure put on the teeth during teeth grinding can not only cause pain in the teeth nut also in muscles and jaw joints.

6) Impacted wisdom tooth – Wisdom teeth are the last molars to erupt. When these teeth do not have enough room to emerge or are partially erupted, they are called impacted wisdom teeth. And this impacted wisdom teeth cause pain. It also puts pressure on nearby tooth that even can cause pain.
Also if the wisdom teeth are partially erupted, they are difficult to clean and floss and are more prone to tooth decay.

7) Orthodontic treatment – A treatment to correct, straighten and align teeth. The appliance (braces) that is fixed when undergoing this treatment can be painful during its initial stage, as it puts pressure on teeth to bring them in their correct position.

A toothache may also be caused by a problem that may not relate to tooth or jaw. There are some conditions that are referred to as toothache. For example, during a sinus infection, the pressure from your sinuses is sometimes referred as dull pain in your upper back teeth because of the close proximity to the teeth.

Google Adwords Negative Keywords Optimization for Auto Dealerships Websites

Many auto dealerships have been running a Google Adwords campaign for a length of time. Most of them have never heard of negative keywords. Addressing the negative keywords is really a risk free and simple way to start optimizing your Adwords account.
  • Negative Keywords: Normally most of the auto dealerships consider keywords from a positive perspective. Using a particular keyword, they instruct Google that the people to find the dealership's website page. For instance, cheap cars. In the beginning, it looks like fine. Google search shows the ad to the people those who are looking for cheap cars, but it is not good enough to recognize from that a simple term what exactly the 'cheap cars' mean. If the user searching for cheap car wax or cheap die-cast cars etc. of almost limitless number of other search terms, the results will display by the Google. Therefore, the dealer needs to clarify to Google that only people looking for a full size automobiles, and not to show the results to those who are looking for car cleaning products or die casts. Thus, the die-cast cars or die cast might be one of the negative keywords for the auto dealerships ad. In simple, negative keywords are the words those to tell Google not to show the ad to.
  • How to find: There are different ways to find the negative keywords for your dealership ads in the Google. Those are as follows:
    • The first one is to simply guess. This is not necessarily a bad place to start if the auto dealership campaign is brand new. If your dealership is selling new BMW cars, then obviously do not want people finding who are looking for Audi cars, Benz cars, Ford cars, used cars, or second hand cars.
    • The second one is to use a keyword tool. The keyword tools can provide a vast amount of information on what the people presently search for.
    • The third one is the most comprehensive method, Adwords keyword details tool. The dealer can use this tool when the campaign has been running for a long enough and able to produce a few thousand impressions. It will provide the search term by the people those who find your ad in the results.
  • Selecting negative keywords: Once you have those keywords, create a list. Google provide an option in the keyword details tool to join unwanted phrases to the negative keywords list. When you adding negative keywords, think about the meaning of the person searching for each word.
Once the negative keyword list is prepared, deploy them at campaign level. The better you optimized the better the screening. If you did it properly, you can get a good amount of savings and more specific targeted people for your dealership.

Things to Know about Tire Warranty

Tires are one of the common replacement parts purchased for our vehicles. We expect the tires to long lasting for years or at least for the advertised period. However, sometimes tires are worn out before the life period advertised. Road debris, hazards, mechanical wear and tire defects are some of the reasons for premature wear or flat. Keeping a spare tire in the car is a good solution for short term. The tire has to repair or replace, when you have the tire warranty, it will save the costs from paying full amount. The warranty is the manufacturer's assurance of quality. It contains a time period to repair or replace of tire. Most of the manufacturers are limited the time period of warranty for four to six years. It is either from the date of purchase of tire or the tread is worn out, whichever is occurred first is considered.
  • Warranty duration: Every manufacturer specify the time period or duration of tires limited warranty in years or months. It is started from the date of purchase of tire. Therefore, the tire warranties count starts form the delivering of the new vehicle or from the day of replacement of tire. The invoices are useful as a proof. If there is no evidence the manufacturing date based on the tier sidewall DOT identification code will be considered.
  • Tread life or mileage warranty: Tread life or mileage warranty is one of the popular marketing tool used by the manufacturers. These warranties helps to indicate the competitive position in the marketplace based on their potential longevity. Some consumers cannot receive the warranted mileage. The manufacturer’s estimation is based on the normal driving conditions. This is because of different geographic influences, driving conditions and the road surfaces across the country. The tread life warranties are also expired along with the standard warranty. If the tier has worn out across the tread before its warrantied mileage limit or time, it has to be qualified for replacement under the tread warranty. You need to show the proof of purchase, and the proper rotation at the recommended intervals. In these situations the manufacturer fixes the price based on the cost of new tire and the remaining tread.
  • Materials and workmanship warranty: The materials and the workmanship warranty will protect the consumer from any defects in the materials and manufacturing. Most of the manufacturers offer this up to the life of the tire. These are like loss of a block or tread or severe cracking in the sidewall etc. If it is occurred within 2/32 inch, most of the manufacturers replace the tire for free of cost. After that generally not free.
In the first thirty-day promotional trail the manufacturers will give special warranty. During this time you found that the tire is not suitable for your vehicle you can replace it. Only a few companies like General tire, Yokohama, Michelin and Bridgestone are offering this warranty to the consumers.

Visionaries work more on perfectionism. Visionary helps in understanding possibilities and give a perfect shape to the idea. In terms of wellness, it will help you to look into a problem from all the angles and how you can make it better.

2. Stoicism: Reacting equally in case of pain and pleasure and being unaffected is called stoicism. If you are very sensitive in reacting to situations, more are the chances you get affected easily. Being sensitive will damage your mental and physical wellness. Stoicism will make you mentally strong.

Most of the time we live in an imaginary world, but stoicism helps you face the real world. Stoicism develops a hope of living and helps to handle situations. It improves your ability to make best out of things.

3. Perfection: No person is ideal in this world. Perfection is like reaching idealism. This attitude will bring discipline in your life. It gives a clarity on things and makes you feel relaxed. It improves to see things from brighter side rather than darker side.

Perfection cannot be achieved easily, adapt this principle in small things in your life like planning the day before for next day, doing work with more concentration, organizing your work properly, planning your diet with specific timings, etc. These things have steady impact on your wellness.

4. Being realistic: This is very vital as reality eliminates almost 80% of our problems. We expect something and the result will be something. We will be affected easily when we face unexpected situations. Try to accept them and work on how to do better rather than worrying or repenting on them.
Reality will help you face and be prepared for situations. Reality improves physical and mental strength promoting overall well being.

5. Cynicism: This is the attitude that prepares to make the best out of the worst. First, they try to see from negative point of you, analyze the thing and plan to make best out of it. It helps develop a sense of humor.

Cynicism will help in times of adverse situations, it will make you react normal even if the situation is beyond your control. It develops power of viewing things even from darker side which we generally neglect. Cynicism makes people brave enough to handle any situation that is very important for wellness.

6. Pragmatism: In simple, it means neutral attitude. This sounds similar to stoicism, but is slightly different. This attitude improves logical way of dealing things. Sometimes because of missing logic, we feel even an easy thing hard. It makes us react according to situation.

It helps in applying logistics to life to make it easy living. For being well, it is necessary to be flexible rather than rigid, sometimes we may have to take a back step for the time being, so cynicism will help react flexible if situation demands.

7. Skepticism: It works on principle “it might not be”. People with this attitude will not easily accept things coming to them and it is not easy to convince them. They first doubt it, put questions to them, investigate and then come to a conclusion.

Skepticism will make you see things that are unseen by most of the people. It improves analyzing power and also help you take right decisions. Skepticism will avoid you react immediately to situation.

All seven attitudes look almost the same, but they are not. They are like beads of chain interlinked with each other. These attitudes will have steady affect on wellness.
