MCO Day 224 ~ Tuesday, 19 January 2021

Yesterday evening the MoE announced that the SPM Trials throughout the country will be cancelled. After being postponed several times, the government has finally decided to cancel the Trials as it it too risky for the students to go back to school in view of the wide spread Covid infection throughout the country.

However, Alycia’s high school (Chinese Independent High School / private) will proceed with the SPM Trials tomorrow, albeit it will now be held online.  The past one year has been really tough on all the SPM students (batch 2020) and with so much uncertainties and changes taking place everyday in a pandemic that keeps spiraling out of control, I can see that Alycia has lost focus.    If the number of Covid cases keeps going up, I really do think that there is a POSSIBILITY that the SPM may be cancelled or deferred again 😓

Why Dental Implants Are the Best Tooth Replacement Option

If you’ve recently had a tooth removed, or you’ve had a gap for years, you might be looking for a solution to replace it. Luckily there are many choices, but none are as good as a dental implant. Dental implants are the closest to a natural tooth you can get, and there are a variety of reasons why they’re the best option.

Last a Lifetime
The most attractive feature of dental implants is that they last forever. An implant is permanently anchored to your jawline and will never wear down like a bridge or crown. Once an implant is secured to your jaw, the bone will grow around it, just like a natural tooth. This means you’ll experience no bone loss and no change to the structure of your face. Unlike dentures, which need to be adjusted every few years, Brooklyn dental implants will never move or shift.

All Foods Are Permitted
When you have dental implants, no food is off-limits. Since the implant is rooted firmly to your jawbone, your natural bite force is restored and you won’t have to avoid any specific food. You can enjoy chewy and crunchy snacks and foods that are restricted with dentures, such as nuts, seeds and corn on the cob.

Look and Feel Natural
The look of a dental implant is identical to that of a natural tooth and nobody will be able to tell the difference. Implants are rooted in the bone making them stable and secure, which gives them a natural feel. You’ll never have to worry about slippage or any difference in your speech. The most likely scenario is that you’ll forget they’re even there, which makes them far superior to dentures.

Easy To Maintain
Implants are a breeze to care for because they’re so much like natural teeth. Brush them at least twice a day, and remember to floss after every meal. The use of a dental rinse is encouraged, as well as continuing to see your dentist for cleanings and regular check-ups. Easy maintenance is another reason dental implants are such an attractive choice for tooth replacement.

A Permanent Solution
Whether you’re missing one tooth, or several, dental implants are the best way to go. They look and feel natural, allow you to eat whatever you want and are easy to care for. This permanent solution is also healthy for your bone structure and will give you a smile that lasts a lifetime.
