Typically referred to as paraffin wax baths, therapeutic baths or arthritic relief baths, these devices are often seen in physiotherapy offices, spas and nail salons.

In addition to encasing your hands in warmth, paraffin baths offer a few extra benefits such as moisturizing your skin and emanating pleasant aromas such as lavender or eucalyptus.

Everything You Need to Know about Flexible Dentures

If you’ve lost teeth or had to have them extracted, you have a few options for replacing them. Dentures are by far the most popular, since they are cost effective and minimally invasive.

The most permanent – and expensive – option is to have dental implants installed.

Since implants are so invasive, it’s no wonder that most people will opt for partial dentures.
