A confident smile makes all the difference, no matter where you are or who you are interacting with. But when your teeth are misaligned, it can create a sense of self-consciousness that holds back the real you from shining through. However, traditional braces with their metal brackets and the discomfort that comes with it keep many adults from embracing the life-altering benefits of getting orthodontic help. That’s all changed with Invisalign which are virtually invisible aligners custom-made for your teeth from flexible plastic. With a series of trays that are replaced every one to two weeks, your teeth are shifted in place gradually, slowly moving them towards their ideal positions. And the best part? All you need to do is pop the Invisalign tray in, and that’s it. There are no unsightly brackets or discomfort that comes with traditional braces, making it perfect for those who want a discreet option to straighten their teeth. So how does it work? It is very simple. Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with an Invisalign provider. Your doctor will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile. Once you approve the plan, your unique aligners will be created that you will need to wear at least 20-22 hours every day. Every one to two weeks, you will change to a new set of aligners, as directed by your doctor.. The aligners will gradually shift your teeth into place gently until you reach your new beautiful smile. To prevent your teeth from moving back to their initial positions, your doctor might recommend you use a retainer after your treatment is done. What’s more, the benefits of Invisalign aren’t just limited to the fact that it is virtually invisible. There is a lot more to be smile about. You can take them off to eat or drink, while brushing, or for a special occasion There are no metal brackets that can irritate your mouth Made from patented SmartTrack material, it gives incomparable comfort and a better fit They are customized for your teeth And taking care of your aligners is easy.

In recent times, the UAE has seen an alarming increase in a number of mental health issues among its residents – natives and expats alike. Among those, the most prevalent, debilitating and worrying is clinical depression. According to a report released by WHO in 2018, there are more than 300 million people suffering from depression worldwide. Within the UAE, the incidence of depression is at 4-5%, with around 15% suffering from a milder version of the disorder. Although biology plays an important part, financial stress, challenging work environments and lack of support system contribute to the rise in depression among the UAE population. And this is especially evident in the expat community as they have to deal with the loneliness that comes from living and working in a foreign country in addition to all the other factors. Early detection is crucial for easier and quicker recovery, and for that reason, it is also essential to differentiate between depression and day-to-day sadness. If you feel that you might suffer from depression, here are some symptoms to watch out for: Depressed mood for most part of the day, nearly every day. Markedly diminished interest or pleasure in all, or almost all, activities most of the day, nearly every day. Significant weight loss when not dieting, or weight gain, or a decrease/increase in appetite nearly every day. A slowing down of thought and a reduction of physical movement Fatigue or loss of energy nearly every day. Feelings of worthlessness, or excessive/inappropriate guilt nearly every day. Diminished ability to think or concentrate, or indecisiveness, nearly every day. Recurrent thoughts of death, recurrent suicidal ideation without a specific plan, or a suicide attempt, or a specific plan for committing suicide. If you find that five or more of the above symptoms persist for more than two weeks, it is important that you consult a mental health professional. Apart from these, depression also reveals itself in other emotional, behavioural and physical signs such as: Irritability or restlessness Sleep disturbances like insomnia, early-morning wakefulness or excessive sleeping Difficulty remembering details Persistent feelings of helplessness or hopelessness Feelings of anxiety/emptiness Brooding, obsessive rumination Persistent aches, pains,cramps, headaches or digestive issues Excessive worry over physical health Loss of libido Substance abuse It is of utmost importance that you contact a mental health professional if you notice yourself exhibiting any of these symptoms.
