Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: Am I a good candidate?
A1: This procedure is specifically engineered for individuals who have stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise. In contrast to gastric bypass surgery, Coolsculpting® is not a weight loss treatment for individuals who are obese.
However, it is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates have obvious bulges in some areas they’d desire to eliminate.
How the Procedure Works
- A lot of us have stubborn fat even if we diet and exercise.
- Coolsculpting procedure makes use of controlled cooling (cryolipolysis) to target fat cells on certain areas of your body and kill them.
- After several weeks, fat cells that were killed are gradually eliminated by your body.
- Coolsculpting results are long lasting, as killed fat cells are gone forever.
Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss
Most people believe that weight loss and fat reduction are the same. They are not.
When you lose weight, the fat cells in your body decrease in volume, but the number of fat cells stays the same. When you gain weight, the same fat cells grow in volume again.
On the contrary, fat reduction decreases the number of fat cells in areas of your body that has been treated with CoolSculpting. Apparently, fat cells that are gone can’t get bigger.

Root Canal Treatment Complications
New infections will likely appear in spite of your dentist’s best efforts to clean and seal your tooth. Among the probable causes for this are:
Root Canal Treatment
The root canal procedure needs one or more hospital visits and is performed by our experienced dentists.
Your dentist will begin the procedure by taking an X-ray to study the shape of the root canals and see whether there are any signs of infection in the surrounding bone.
An anesthesia is applied to numb the area near the tooth. In fact, anesthesia is not really needed, because the nerve is dead, but your dentist will anesthetize the area to make you more relaxed and at ease.
Root canal, also called endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure used to treat the inside of a decayed or infected tooth to save it.
To understand how it works, it helps to know something about the structure of the tooth.
Your teeth have 2 parts, the crown and the root (see figure below).
After the Surgery
After the procedure, you may rest for some time. But as soon as you feel able, you can go home. Please remember that some amount of swelling and minor bleeding is normal. To speed the recovery process, always follow your surgeon’s instructions, like:
Surgery is needed to place the implants in your jawbone. Overtime, successful dental implants will depend on the jawbone fusing to the implant.
You can help this process along by maintaining clean teeth and gums over the next few months.
Just before the procedure, you will be asked to rinse your mouth with an antiseptic. Medications to help you relax or get you to become sleepy will be given to you.
