Terminating Terrible Pain Caused by Dental Issues

A few weeks back I had to have my top right wisdom tooth pulled out. The pain was excruciating and gave me really bad headaches. I wish I knew then what I knew now in how to control the pain while getting a dentist’s appointment.

Terminating Terrible Pain Caused by Dental Issues

Agony Aunts

Although pain is our brain’s way of protecting us from further damage or infection to organs and other areas of the body, most of us suffering from acute pain would prefer to do without. Unfortunately, we will all at some point in our lives end up with severe toothache as a result of irregular activity inside the tooth’s pulp chamber. However, the severity of the pain we feel due to such dental disasters is down to the degree of stimulus involved and which type it is. Those of us that have a favourite aunt to discuss various matters of life over with may not be at all surprised that she is able to shed some light on some of the causes of disturbing dental pain. But without hurting the feelings of our concerned relative, it would be wise to do some online research into the various reasons for tooth pain that never seems to wane.

Win a Selection of Reading and Activity Books from Oxford University Press

Would you like to win a selection of reading and activity books tailored to the correct stage for your child?  Well at the bottom of this post you can, but first here is a little bit of info about this fantastic new range from the Oxford University Press.

Having spoken with parents of young children as part of extensive market research into home learning, OUP found that many parents were unsure which books were matched to their children’s stage of learning, and therefore struggled to identify which books to read at home. Additionally, while they wanted to support their child’s school learning at home, they wanted the process to be fun, rather than to feel like a chore tagged on to already busy lives.

To help children to make progress at home, whilst encouraging reading and learning for pleasure, OUP has created two new ranges of reading and activity books – Read with Oxford and Progress with Oxford –  and Read with Oxford Stages, a new, clear, and comprehensive six-stage levelling system to support learning progression at home.

The OxfordOwl website now hosts extensive new and free supporting materials for use at home. Not sure where to start? Try our simple test to find out which Read with Oxford Stage is best for your child, or have a look on www.oxfordowl.co.uk to find out more about each stage, including tips to support your child at home, free activities, downloadable activity sheets, and suggested reading lists.
