Loss Of Hearing In Kids

there seem to be so many reasons out there that can contribute to children losing the ability to be able to hear and none of them are good, you need to be prepared for the worse so this is what can happen. these seem to be the main causes for hearing loss in a child.

Pregnancy Related

One of the most common causes in pregnancy is due to prematurity and around 4% of the children born prematurely could actually suffer from some kind of hearing loss. Around 5% of all children born before 32 weeks are likely to actually suffer from hearing loss before they are five years old. this is something you cannot avoid as a parent and as not something you have to feel responsible for because it is not your fault at all.

Down Syndrome

8.7% of all children with Down Syndrome are actually likely to suffer from hearing loss and this comes from a 2007 report. Of course down syndrome is not the only diseases out there that this can happen to and charge syndrome is another one to look out for. Once again this is not down to the parents and you cannot blame yourself for something like this happening.

Unknown Causes

The biggest figure of deafness in children, around 54% of cases are all put down to unknown. This of course means that there is no explanation for a child losing the ability to hear or starting to suffer from hearing loss. This is a great shame and the only thing that parents can do is be careful to the amount of loud sounds they are submitting their children to.

Look for hearing aids Sussex and hearing protection for musicians if you need to look into more information on this. If it comes to it you will need help choosing hearing aids for the deaf, it will most likely turn out to be okay though so do not worry!

Word About Kids Fitness Exercises

In order to be physically fit they require regular and ample exercises. It is not the overweight or obese kids that need to exercise regularly but each and every other kid. Good exercise is an essential element in every kid’s life.
Regular exercise does not necessarily mean that a child has to spend several hours of the day exercising or working out. Some people also think that if a child participates in an active team sport then they do not require physical exercises. This should not be the case because according to studies children do not get ample exercise when they are having free play or a team sport such as baseball or soccer. There is a required amount of exercise that a kid requires per day in order to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Children experts and pediatricians recommend that children and especially teens require being physically active for at least sixty minutes a day. It is important though to note that it does not have to be a sixty minute continuous exercise. A kid can do several activities through out the day as long as they add up to about 60 minutes of physical exercise. Parents should make sure that the child gets some physical exercise time instead of coming home to watch television or playing video games.
Beneficial regular exercises are very beneficial to the kids not only for their physique and health but also for their self esteem. Good exercise is also good for a child’s sleep and increases their body energy. Apart from the physical benefits regular exercises also help the reduction of anxiety and they are known to reduce the levels of depression in children. Then there is the obvious benefit of weight loss and the prevention of obesity in children. These are some of the benefits that kids get from regular exercise that they would not have benefited from if they just slept and watched television.
Kids’ exercises are basically different from those of the adults. You do not expect to take your child to the gym and let them run on the treadmill or lift weights. This might be dangerous to the children. Sometimes for these reasons it is hard to tell the amount of calories a child might be burning in a particular exercise. The good thing is that as long as your child is doing the recommended 60 minutes of exercise in a day you do not have to worry about the amount of calories they are burning. Remember also it is vital that the child maintains a healthy diet. A regular physical exercise may not be of a good use if the child is not on a good and healthy diet.

Loosing Teeth – Exciting For Kids, Terrifying For Adults

Like almost everything in life, losing your teeth is fun, scary, exciting and simple when you’re a kid. Go to mommy, tell her your tooth is loose, she gets some string, pulls it out and the tooth fairy pays you in exchange for it! Then you grow up, loose a tooth and you have to pay up to get your smile back, bye bye simple exciting fun.

In this case, people usually get Dentures.

Dentures are prosthetic devices made to replace missing teeth that are supported by soft and hard tissue in your mouth. There are complete dentures which people use if they are missing all their upper or lower teeth. Then there are removable partial dentures or fixed partial dentures for people who are missing only a few teeth. People with dentures however are not too happy.

Lower Dentures can become loose fitting because your gum tissue shrinks. This causes mouth irritation, sores and pain. It can also make eating and talking feel different and not in a good way. Upper Dentures fit better because of the suction in the upper palate, but that reduces the taste of food, and like lower dentures gum tissue shrinkage can cause sores and pain. Partial dentures need to anchor to your teeth using a metal clasp which can damage your teeth. These dentures last a lifetime but with age the fit will change and new ones will be needed.

What’s the alternative? Now, at GlamSmile, you can get Dental Crowns. Dental crowns are basically caps for teeth. A porcelain or metal (or combination) cap is made and cemented into place covering the portion of the tooth that lies above the gum line unlike fillings that fill and cover a part of the tooth. Crowns become the new outer surface of the tooth.

A Dental crown is normally placed when a tooth needs protection from breaking because of decay or a crack; to restore a broken or worn down tooth; to cover and support a tooth with a large filling where not much ‘tooth’ is left; it can also support or hold a dental bridge; cover teeth that are misshaped or discoloured or; cover a dental implant.

There are different crowns you choose from, at GlamSmile, as permanent crowns can be made from all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic.

Metals: Mostly gold alloy, other alloys (for example, palladium) or a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium). This is a good pick for teeth that can’t be easily seen like molars because the metallic colour is not something you want in the front of your mouth. Aside from the colour drawback these crowns are better than others because less tooth structure needs to be removed; they withstand biting and chewing well and probably last the longest in terms of wear down.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal: Metal and porcelain combined so it has the strength of the metal but the colour matches your other teeth and not your jewellery. The wearing down however occurs faster than pure metal crowns and the porcelain part can chip or break off. They look like normal teeth except sometimes around the gum line (more so when the gum recedes) where the metal underlying the crown’s porcelain can show through as a dark line.

All-resin: These are cheaper crowns but they do wear down over time and are more prone to fractures.

All-ceramic or all-porcelain: These crowns provide the best natural colour match but are not as strong. They are good for people with metal allergies and are the preferred option for front teeth.

At GlamSmile you have a choice of getting temporary or permanent crowns, difference for the dentist is just where they are made, and difference for you is if you plan on changing them in the future or not.

What does this mean for you? Simply that the Movie Star smile you have always wanted is possible and all you need to do is take action.

Punching Bags For Kids

Your child most likely has access to a swing set, monkey bars and other types of play equipment that also boasts fitness, but have you considered punching bags as a part of this play/fitness equipment? If you decide to branch out and add a bag, there are some important things to consider. Soft bags are much better for the younger child. Their little bones are growing and maturing so they will need a surface that is softer than the adult bags as their striking surface is much more solid and does not give when hit. When you find the best kid friendly bag, create a good workout routine for it. This will build strength rather than causing injury.

Most important is the need for safety. If you decide to look at punching bags that hang from the ceiling, then find a bag with chains coated in plastisol. This coating allows your heavy duty chains to enjoy a long life as it handles the weight of the bag. This also protects your child if the bag should decide to fly off of its support for some reason. It is important to choose a bag that is weight and height appropriate for your child, especially when choosing a bag weighted by water or sand.

The next important thing you need to do for your child when introducing the bag is to give easy and accurate instructions on how to use it as well as provide adequate supervision to your child. These punching bags are meant to be fun, but if they are not used the right way, they can cause injuries not only to your child, but to anyone standing nearby. So be sure that you are there when these are being used.

Children’s bags range from different types to different weights. A popular one is the balloon top bag which is tied to a spring pole. This allows for a boxing method. These punches and kicks will be perfectly safe on the weighted bags as well as the hanging ones. Prices range from mid $50’s – $160’s.
