How do you carry your iPad? What’s that —
you just toss it into your purse or briefcase?
That’s a great way to scratch, bang up, or
even break your equipment. But carrying
around a clunky, boring case is hardly an
option. Fear not…TravelTEQ has anticipated
your need, and created this gorgeous
leather case specifically designed for tablet
computers. The case doubles as a stand, with
three possible positions, and includes plenty
of pockets; TravelTEQ.com.

A regular dental hygiene performed by dental
professionals is a must! The reason is simple.
Approximately two minutes after regular tooth
brushing, a film composed of proteins and
bacteria is formed on the surfaces of the teeth.
This film is better known as dental plaque.
Plaque must be efficiently removed every day.
If this does not occur, then a calcification or
hardening of this film happens. After this has
occurred, only special instruments and the
care of a dental hygienist or your dentist can
remove this calculus build up. But how harmful
is to have calculus attached to your teeth?
Calculus is nothing more than a group of many,
many types of bacteria linked together by
calcium. These deposits create an environment
that promotes gum inflammation. The response
of our body to inflammation is the same in
all sites — and it is to fight it! The result is
periodontitis, that is, bone loss. Extensive
bone loss can occur in a relatively short
period of time, too. Your bone is crucial for
the maintenance of your teeth. It holds them
in place. So remember, go to your scheduled
hygiene appointments and preserve the bone
that holds your teeth! Another misconception
