5 Secrets For A Long And Happy Life, From Costa Rica’s Blue Zone

Premier Peque

The secret to living past 100 years old may lie in the gorgeous, sunny shores of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, one of five known Blue Zones in the world. Nicoya’s centennial residents are happy, healthy, and apparently immortal — and we think we’ve figured out why. Read on to learn the ultimate five secrets Asuaire Travel compiled to a long and happy life, from Costa Rica’s Blue Zone in:

Nicoya:

1. They get the good kind of sun.

The dangers of sun damage have been well-documented, but it’s important to remember that some exposure to sunlight, in moderation, is crucial for acquiring essential Vitamin D, which helps prevent illnesses from certain cancers to depression — not to mention gives you an enviable glow.

2. They involve themselves in their community.

In this day and age it’s become increasingly easy to isolate ourselves from others, living our lives through our computer screens and Instagram posts. Nicoya’s centennials are proof of how vital it is to have daily, genuine, face-to-face interaction with people in our social circles. Don’t you agree?

3. They eat well, but conservatively.

A good tip for extending your lifespan is to eat a small, healthy dinner in the early evening. Nicoyans practice a diet of rice, beans, corn, greens and a small amount of meat in their daily meals, and they’re all the better for it.
It is algo a delicious and traditional meal in Costa Rica!

4. They make sure to reduce stress.

Stress: one of the modern world’s greatest antagonists. Some stress in life is inevitable, but Nicoya’s elderly citizens believe that those who take active steps to reduce unnecessary emotional and psychological turmoil have the potential to live longer and healthier lives, with illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and heart disease posing less of a threat. We definitely suggest a relaxing trip to Costa Rica to make your first step towards reducing stress!

5. They have a sense of purpose.

It’s common in later life for people to lose the sense that they’re needed and valuable to their families, friends and communities. By staying involved and active in caregiving and mentorship roles, enjoying hobbies, getting involved in their community, etc.; you can wake up every day with goals and ambition to continue to do your part. The people of Nicoya call this their “plan de vida” – life plan.

Beyond that, it’s good to remember the basics. So: drink lots of water, exercise, plan for the future… perhaps a trip to Costa Rica!
And you will morethen welcome to come to PREMIER DENTAL CARE to have the best experience on your dental care.

The family oral education

The Family Manual for Oral Health of the Directorate of Development of Health Services of the Costa Rican Social Security Fund is a basic guide for the community, trained volunteers, technicians and professionals, to take oral health education as part of the approach to the family nuclei.

The World Health Organization states: “Health is a fact that is determined by the effective functioning of the family as a biosocial unit in the context of a given society” This aspect is applicable in oral health education actions that they must begin in the families that constitute the central axis of the social nucleus of society.

The process of education for oral health should be given before birth in the family to build the foundations of the future; it is there where healthy societies are built. The family oral education is not only directed to prevent cavities and other oral diseases, but to generate healthy habits and lifestyles, reinforce the principles of each family and promote healthy family relationships.

It is necessary to work in a process of sensitization of the family scenario to involve all members, assigning responsibilities to each person within the family scheme to promote basic habits for good health such as healthy eating, hygiene, harmonious intrafamilial relationships, periodic dental consultation and environments healthy protected from harmful customs.

Oral health origin.

Oral health has its origin from pregnancy, with good physical and mental health of the mother and the care of pregnancy. The child requires careful attention from the first days of his birth being breastfeeding essential for growth and development.

Approximately six months of age, the eruption of the deciduous teeth begins, a period that can last up to three years. In some children there may be various discomforts such as irritability, inflammation, loss of appetite, sleep disturbances, among others, which must be monitored.

Parents or caregivers must provide special attention from the first days to teach correct habits of food, hygiene and tooth brushing. From three years on, a stage of greater socialization and autonomy begins, generally they attend maternity centers and educational centers, being these places suitable to reinforce habits of healthy eating and oral hygiene correct. The motto that should be taught to children from small is: “The teeth come out healthy and must remain healthy.

Oral health for adolescents.

The boy and girl at school and then in adolescence to ensure healthy teeth in the adult stage, must maintain good oral habits. In these periods, changes in height, weight, texture continue, the increase in psychomotor skills and abilities being relevant; psychological changes arise and social interaction increases, aspects that can be influenced by the adoption of harmful habits that affect their integral health with harmful repercussions in the oral condition.

Oral health in the adult stage.

In the adult stage, self-care practices must continue, applying the correct techniques of oral hygiene, strengthening healthy lifestyles with nutritious food, exercises that preserve physical health and striving to build a harmonious intrafamilial life that protects the adoption of harmful customs that affect the members of the family nucleus.

Older adults form an important collective; An important group will require support for causes or conditions of physical, mental or economic dependence. In this age, they generate changes in their oral structures so it is necessary to spare no effort in monitoring their hygiene habits. In this stage there is a high percentage of people who use dental prostheses that require special attention for their hygiene and daily use, due to functional and psychomotor restrictions of age.

As expressed in this manual: “The role of parents, grandparents, brothers, caregivers and repeated contact, are the main tools available to the family for education and based on them they will act and promote learning in the school, in the community and in the different programs carried out in the health centers “.

Empathy in Premier Dental Care

Empathy Premier

Empathy is the basis of the design process that is focused on people and patients.

People with a greater capacity for empathy are those who know best how to “read” others. They are able to capture a large amount of information about the other person from their non-verbal language, their words, the tone of their voice, their posture, their facial expression, etc. And based on that information, they can know what is happening inside them, what they are feeling.

The basic thing to be empathetic is: – Observe: Look at the patients and their behaviors in the context of their lives. We must always try to observe from the outside without being intrusive, the best ideas come in these situations as well.

Ask and show interest

– Get involved: Generate a conversation, this can be from a corridor question, brief or a conversation in a space of trust. We prepare processes to manage the conversation and the needs. The important thing is always to ask “Why?” Since that discovers new meanings, ask once and twice if necessary … Why? Why? and thus be able to understand the needs of the patient.

As Specialists, the problems we try to solve personally the solutions based on the possibilities of our patients.

Curiously enough, in the animal kingdom the concept of empathy is very present because the survival of the species. Something like this generates that many animals and diverse species show cooperative behaviors where the classical idea of the “survival of the fittest” remains. An example of this can be seen in certain whales, capable of attacking the killer whales to defend the seals.

People who are characterized by an authentic empathy believe in social commitment. Because survival is not a business nor should it understand politics, interests or selfishness. Surviving is not only allowing our heart to pump, it is to have dignity, to respect, to feel valued, free and part of a whole where we are all valuable.

Dental hygiene

Dental Hygiene

The specialists of Premier Dental Care Jaco find that dental hygiene is one of the most important thing in children and adults in Costa Rica, according to the World Health Organization, cavities are one of the most common conditions, which is due to poor eating habits that predominate in the population.

What does good dental hygiene mean?

Good dental hygiene provides a mouth that looks and smells healthy. This means that:

  • Your teeth are clean and there is no food residue.
  • The gums have a pink color and do not hurt or bleed during brushing or flossing.
  • Bad breath is not a constant problem.

Premier Dental Care Jaco advises that, instead of consuming sweet foods or sticking to your teeth, it is appropriate to eat carrots, apples, cucumbers, popcorn, among others.

The issue of the care of our teeth is usually aesthetic, however, you should also take oral health into account, if you do not take care of your mouth the remedy will be more expensive, therefore it is better to prevent.

The World Health Organization notes that about 30% of people in the population group between 65 and 74 years of age do not have natural teeth. This may be due to the fact that nearly 100% of adults have some dental decay, a problem that if left untreated can lead to the loss of the piece.

How is good dental hygiene practiced?

Prevention.

Maintaining good dental and oral hygiene is the best way to prevent the onset of problems and diseases (and the most profitable in the long term, both for your health and your pocket).

Daily.

Ideally, you should brush your teeth after every meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner) but if at midday you forget or can not do it, it is important that you keep your mouth clean at night every day.

Dental floss.

It prevents the formation of interdental cavities and eliminates the accumulation of bacterial plaque. It is advisable to use it at least once a day.

Mouthwash.

You must includes a mouthwash in your dental hygiene routine, since you can remove more plaque between the teeth than just brushing. Also, if they contain fluoride, it will help you strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities.

Visit Premier Dental Care Jaco.

We have the bad habit of visiting the dentist only when the pain attacks us or the oral problems are more than evident. Do not wait to feel these symptoms and visit the dentist at least twice a year to prevent diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis.

Recommendations.

The lack of care and aging affect the oral health of the elderly. Good dental hygiene and the following recommendations will help you solve and prevent problems in your teeth and prostheses.

Taking medicines.

Some drugs, such as diuretics, anxiolytics, or anti-inflammatories, among others, cause a reduction in the production of saliva, which is responsible for protecting the teeth and gums. Also some medical treatments, such as chemotherapy, cause side effects in the oral cavity.

Exposure to toxic agents.

Smoking or drinking alcoholic beverages affects oral health, especially among older people, who may already have weakened.

Lack of dental hygiene.

Problems of mobility or dexterity, forgetfulness, or simple laziness, result in not following the appropriate hygienic recommendations, which causes various disorders and infections.

Suffering certain diseases.

Rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, or multiple sclerosis, among others, have among their symptoms conditions in the oral cavity. In addition, suffering from dementia, Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s disease, hinders or prevents the patient from following proper dental hygiene.

Dental check up

Dental check up

Dental check up

 

Premier Dental Care Jaco recommend getting a dental check up every 6 months, however, high risk patients should go more often, while patients with teeth in good condition, may not require as many visits in comparison.

Why two dental check up per year?

During a dental check up, your dentist from Prermier Dental Care Jaco can detect almost at a glance threats that you are not seeing or feeling: many oral problems do not show symptoms until they are in advanced stages, from cavities to other more serious problems.
If you are a new patient, the dentist may recommend x-rays to determine the current status of the hidden areas of your mouth and help you analyze changes that may occur later. If you have had recent x-rays in your previous dentist’s office, your new dentist may ask you to resend the x-rays.

When do I have to go for a dental check up review?

Periodic dental check up are the only means for dentists to address these problems early, and it is therefore very important that you go for dental check up twice a year, as recommended by Premier Dental Care Jaco.
There are people more likely to have oral problems, in this population at risk are smokers, pregnant women, people with diabetes and / or periodontal disease, and those with a weakened immune system that makes them more prone to infections.
Some drinks such as coffee, wine, and tobacco can stain your teeth too quickly, sugar is the biggest cause of tooth decay, which makes these reviews necessary with professionals at our Premier Dental Care center.

What is a review?

At each dental check up, the dentist will examine your teeth, your gums and the whole of your oral cavity. After asking about your general health and asking if you have had any problems since your last visit, you will look for signs of deterioration in your teeth, in addition to other more serious problems.
The dentist will perform a series of checks and tests during the appointment. More start with the examination of the head and neck, in this control, the dentist looks for anything unusual that could indicate an oral health problem.
The dentist will also check the soft tissues of the mouth (tongue and cheeks) and periodontal meat (gums), check for cuts, spots and anything else that could indicate an irregularity.
Finally, the teeth will be examined. Using a mirror, the dentist will examine the teeth for signs of decay, tartar and plaque. The dentist also look for cavities and damages in the tooth enamel. In cases where problems with teeth are encountered, dentists commonly x-ray the area before deciding on treatment.

When should I go back?

After the review, Premier Dental Care Jaco will recommend an approximate date for your next visit. Depending on your oral health status it can be as early as three months or up to two years.
In children it is recommended to go to check-ups at least twice a year, due to the changes in their own dentition of growth.
If you have or think you have problems with your teeth before your next dental check up, call your Dental Care Premier Jaco clinic and advance the appointment. In cases of real urgency, it is best to go directly to your dental clinic.
