#DentalFeature: What Causes A Swollen Tongue?

first_imgPLANTATION, Florida – Does your tongue feel uncomfortably large in your mouth? Perhaps you’re worried you may be having an allergic reaction to something you ate. A doctor or dentist can help discover the cause of your swollen tongue and provide treatment; though, don’t wait for an appointment if you’re also having breathing difficulties. Visit a medical professional immediately.What Causes a Swollen Tongue?The tongue is a versatile muscle that’s vital for eating and speaking, and it doesn’t take long to notice when it feels large and thick. Redness and changes in the surface texture could accompany the swelling. The medical term for a red, inflamed tongue is glossitis, and allergic reactions, injuries, infections and irritants are a few of the most common causes of the condition.An allergic reaction might be due to food, medicine or oral care products. Irritation can be caused by alcohol, tobacco or spicy foods. A skin condition, vitamin deficiency or hormonal issue may also cause tongue swelling. Finally, glossitis is sometimes a symptom of Sjögren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that causes dry mouth.Food AllergensCertain types of food can trigger an oral allergy, marked by an itchy mouth or a swollen tongue, while other foods cause a whole-body allergic reaction that may include the mouth. Typical foods such as apples, melons and pineapples can trigger an oral allergy, and notes that the allergic reaction is often strongest when these fruits are eaten raw. Some foods that may cause a whole-body allergic reaction are eggs, peanuts, fish, shellfish, milk, tree nuts, wheat and soy.Allergic ReactionsAnother term to describe swelling in the tongue, lips and face is angioedema, which means a swelling of deep layers of skin. Angioedema is an allergic reaction that can happen suddenly or over a period. Symptoms that often accompany the allergic reaction are hives, reddened skin, itching in the mouth, nausea, stomach pains, a runny nose and sneezing.A swollen tongue, lips or throat are signs of a serious allergic reaction that can quickly become life-threatening without treatment. If you have swelling around or in your mouth and you have difficulty breathing or swallowing, begin to turn blue, have chest pain or feel faint, seek medical help immediately.How to Treat a Swollen TongueA mild case of swollen tongue often goes away without treatment after a few days. It’s imperative to see a dentist or doctor if your symptoms last longer than a few days, you experience breathing difficulties, or your throat is also swelling. With the appropriate treatment, the swelling will go down. If the swelling is due to a food allergy, antihistamine medication is the usual prescribed treatment.How to Prevent Tongue SwellingIf you know what food or other allergen caused your tongue swelling, you can prevent a repeat episode by avoiding the trigger food or substance. However, sometimes the culprit isn’t obvious. In these cases, keep a diary of what you eat or use in or around your mouth. Whenever you experience swelling or other symptoms, make a note. With your doctor’s help, you should be able to determine which food or product you need to remove from your diet or personal care routine.Although tongue swelling is annoying, it’s often possible to identify the cause and prevent the problem from returning. Speak to your dentist or doctor if you experience this symptom to receive treatment and discuss what steps to take next.Dr Sharon Robinson, DDS, owns and operates the Dental Place in Plantation, Florida, with a second office – the Dental Place Cosmetix Spa in Kingston, Jamaica.

Rumson Announces Plans For a Marine Field Station

first_imgA rendering of the proposed future marine station.The proposed marine station will likely be about 4,000-5,000 square feet and could cost roughly $1.5 million. Those projections are very tentative at this point, Bachrach advised, with the university preparing to under take fundraising efforts to make it happen.Monmouth University has been able to access the municipal boat launch area on the borough property for about 10 years for boats used in university research projects.The university’s Urban Coast Institute has two boats available and will shortly take ownership of a third, acquiring it from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which will be kept on the property of the future marine station, Bachrach said.Kastning followed up by noting the Monmouth Conservation Foundation has not given up on Picnic and Dorn islands, hoping to eventually obtain them for future preservation.This article was first published in Sept. 28 – Oct. 5, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times. By John Burton |RUMSON – A partnership between the borough and Monmouth University will provide students an opportunity to study the rich ecosystems of the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers and surrounding waterways.Officials from the borough and the university on Tuesday, Sept. 26, conducted a press conference to make public their plans to cooperate in establishing a marine field station on municipal-owned property.“Rumson has embraced the agreement,” Mayor John Ekdahl told the audience of university representatives, elected officials and other individuals interested in the long-term plans for the project.In the rear of Borough Hall property, off Avenue of Two Rivers, the borough has a sewer pump station in the vicinity of a boat ramp allowing access to the Navesink River and, by extension, other area tributaries in the surrounding Two River area.This agreement will have Monmouth University, West Long Branch, through the school’s Urban Coastal Institute, construct a marine field house above the pump house. The station, officials said, is expected to have laboratory space, classrooms and meeting rooms. The location will be used by university students to explore the ecological diversity the area provides. Area high school and younger students attending borough public schools will have access to the facility as well, offering hands-on educational experiences in the future, officials said. “We’re excited for what the future holds for us,” Ekdahl concluded about the project.Monmouth Conservation Foundation worked with the par ties to facilitate the project, according to the foundation’s executive director, William Kastning. The foundation, which works to preserve open space around the county, had hoped to acquire two islands located in the river for the marine station. However, the islands, Picnic Island and Dorn Island, as they’re commonly known, totaling about 15 acres and owned by the Dorn family, weren’t suited for the use due to environmental considerations, Kastning explained.“This is truly a win-win-win, opportunity,” said Steven Bachrach, dean of the university’s School of Science. Students and academics can conduct scientific study of the shore area that will “provide guidance and help to protect our shoreline,” Bachrach added.“This is truly an exciting time for the School of Science,” he said.last_img read more

KONA GOLD STAKES QUOTES

first_imgALEX SOLIS, SAN ONOFRE, SECOND: “From the three-eighths pole, it was a battle between these two horses, and my horse didn’t give up an inch. He just kept trying the whole way. He got a clean break, and I was where I wanted to be. (Masochistic) was just a little better today.” TYLER BAZE, MASOCHISTIC, WINNER: “This was just basically, don’t change anything that ain’t broken. I talked to Victor (Espinoza) yesterday before he left for Arkansas and he said to get him out of the gate and keep him going. We weren’t going fast down the backside, like 22 and change and 44 and change, but we picked it up around the turn. When I asked him turning for home, he pinned his ears and took off.” -30- JOCKEY QUOTES DAN WARD, SAHARA SKY, THIRD: “Glad to have him back. He ran a good race. I really thought they’d run a lot faster. He’s a 7-year-old, and we’ve had him for four years. He’s a personal favorite. There’s the Triple Bend and the Los Angeles – I don’t know if we go to both, because we also have Wild Dude, and he can run in the Los Angeles, and maybe Sahara Sky in the Triple Bend. And then there are good opportunities at Del Mar the rest of the year now that it’s dirt.”center_img RON ELLIS, MASOCHISTIC, WINNER: “I thought he ran awesome. I was really glad to see he could win a dogfight, because all his wins have been pretty easy. You never know until you’re in one. He hooked with a very tough horse around the turn so I’m glad he responded the way he did. He’s a talented sonofagun.“He’s been training great. I’ve been very surprised. It’s been easy to get him to gallop. As we get up higher in graded stakes I think the key with him will be getting him to learn to relax. I think he could go a mile. The Breeders’ Cup Mile would be something we’d consider, but we’ll see how he comes out of this race and go from there.“He had a perfect trip. Tyler (Baze) did a great job. I haven’t run the horse before, Tyler hadn’t ridden the horse before, so we were kind of new faces, but I think Victor (Espinoza) had talked to Tyler and gave him the nuances he needed to know. It was nice that he had an outside post, too. We didn’t have to worry about what everybody else did in the race.” NOTES: The winning owners are William Shamlian of Los Angeles (Los Pellos Hermanos Racing) and Samantha Siegel (Jay Em Ess Stable) of Beverly Hills.

Atletico’s Partey wary of Olunga threat

He is a good player and he scored several goals while playing for Girona and he has good attributes for a striker. We have to be very careful about him and we should try not to give him any space,” the midfielder noted.Olunga scored Kenya’s lone goal in the 2-1 loss against Sierra Leone in the opening qualification game and in the absence of star midfielder Victor Wanyama, he is expected to be Kenya’s leading light against the Black Stars.Ghanaian and Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey in training at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on September 7, 2018 ahead of their 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifier against Kenya’s Harambee Stars. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluPartey meanwhile has urged his teammates not to underrate Kenya and he says they expect a tough game, especially with the hosts having lost against Sierra Leone.“We prepared to come and win but we know it is not going to be an easy game. We cannot underrate Kenya because they are a good team. We just have to go in there and do our job and come off with three points,” further pointed out Partey.Ghana are in firm control of Group F having won their opening game 5-0 against Ethiopia and a win against Kenya on Saturday would put them in pole position to qualify for next year’s showpiece in Cameroon.The team jetted into the country on Thursday night after holding a four-day session in Ethiopia and had a training session at the Kasarani Stadium for an hour on Friday.Ghanaian players in training at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on September 7, 2018 ahead of their 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifier against Kenya’s Harambee Stars.

I think as players and as a team, we are ready for Saturday,” the midfielder further said.Partey will be among the star names for the game including Leicester City’s Daniel Amartey, Christian Atsu of Newcastle and Inter Milan’s Kwadwo Asamoah.Head coach Kwesi Appiah has named a transformed squad with a number of players left out including legend Abedi Pele’s sons Andre and Jordan Ayew as well as captain Asamoah Gyan. Partey is expected to take over the captainship in Gyan’s absence.The midfielder reckons that the team is well blended and expects no problem with the absence of the stars.Ghana and Leicester City’s Daniel Amartey in training at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on September 7, 2018 ahead of their 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifier against Kenya’s Harambee Stars.

We have won all our past matches and I think as a team we are doing okay,” the midfielder opined.A familiar face that will be in the Ghanaian team to play Harambee Stars is right back Harrison Afful who currently plies his trade in the USA> The defender was part of the Esperance squad that played against Gor Mahia in the 2014 CAF Champions League when they beat K’Ogalo 8-2 on aggregate.Kenya deputy captain David Owino was in Gor’s defense during that season.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
