Redondo Beach Dentist Solves Sleep Apnea

Dr. Jon Monette, of Sleep Apnea Treatment Center of Los Angeles, has been a strong advocate for a new treatment method for Sleep Apnea. Instead of having to place an obtrusive mask on your face every night to assist with sleeping, Dr. Monette uses a newer method known as Oral Appliance Therapy. Oral Appliance Therapy is a very simple way to stop Sleep Apnea. All it consists of is a specially fitted mouth piece that you sleep with every night. Very similar to a mouth guard that many people use to stop teeth grinding. One of the best benefits of this type of sleep apnea treatment is the fact that it is covered by most medical insurance plans. That means that the cost to most patients is very small. They don’t have to wear a CPAP mask, and they get a good...

Get the Professional Weight Loss Help You Need With a Medical Weight Loss Center

If losing weight and keeping that weight off were easy, 68% of Americans would not be overweight.  If any/all of the “self-help” methods of weight loss were effective, 68% of Americans would not be overweight.  If there were a “magic pill” or “secret diet” that truly worked, 68% of Americans would not be overweight. The problem:  Losing weight is NOT easy, there is a DISMAL success rate for “self-help” methods and there are NO magic pills/diets that truly work.  The solution:  A reputable, safe and effective medical weight loss center. People need structure, support, a dietary plan based on “real” food and often, a medical “jumpstart” to help get into a positive mindset that propels people to continue vigorously with their efforts.  A...

What is a “Diet Doctor”?

What is a “Diet Doctor”?

Robert Posner, M.D. Founder, Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program When people with weight control problems cannot find success on their own, they will often search for a professional that may be of help.  A very common Google search term is “Diet Doctor”.  The results will yield millions of responses to this, and I believe it is important that people have a keen awareness of the major differences between “doctors”. “Diet Doctors” can range from people with PhD’s in nutrition, PhD’s in counseling, chiropractors, psychiatrists that work with eating disorders and medical doctors.  Focusing on the medical doctors, there are surgeons that perform operative procedures (bariatric surgeons) and physicians that offer a medical weight loss...

Identifying Your Pet if He or She Goes Missing

Search results are personalized now, so get a more unfiltered view by going ‘Incognito’

Having beein in the SEO market for over 10 years, the change in search has been significant, presenting both challenges and opportunities.   With search results being increasingly personalized, measuring universal web site rankings becomes less relevant as everyone is likely seeing different results, based on a host of factors. Several years ago, someone searching ‘find a dentist’ in different cities would have likely seen very similar organic search results, but those days are long gone. As we focus on our internet marketing services for clients, we look less at individual rankings and focus more on overall organic traffic. The challenge is being able to effectively measure improvements or decreases in organic visibility, especially when clients...

“Don’t Ignore a Receding Gum Line” – Advice from your Virginia Dentist

In our Leesburg, VA dental pratice, increasingly we see patients suffering from receding gum lines, which is a dental health condition not to be overlooked. Many American adults currently have some form of periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to a more serious disease that is the result of major damage to the soft tissues and bone supporting teeth. Periodontal disease is a major cause of the loss of adult teeth. Plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth, is the chief agent leading to periodontal disease. Gums that are red, swollen and bleed easily are caused by gingivitis that is the mildest form of periodontal disease. There is little or no pain and the patient may not know that it...

What to Look For When Comparing Medical Weight Loss Programs

There are many choices available to a person that desires a medical weight loss program in Northern Virginia or throughout the country to help he or she to lose weight.  What are some of the important factors that go into decision-making as to which direction is the best?  Here are my thoughts as to the questions that are very important to consider:  Does the program rely on selling you shakes, bars or prepackaged foods?  If the answer is “yes”, I strongly advise you to reconsider your choice, because the meal replacement programs have virtually no chance of helping you lose weight for the long-term.  You will be eating “real” food for the rest of your life, so for any program to have a chance of helping you keep the weight off, that program must...
