  • Gentle Remiders - Touch their chin, tell hem to "look at me", etc.

a root canal done tooth is brittle and can break easily when hard food is chewed .

so root canal will last as long as it doesnot break with pressure of hard food 

by capping the tooth it will not break inspite of having hard food ( depends on quality of cap)

Acetylcholine receptor antibody is a type of protein usually found in the blood of people with myasthenia gravis. The antibody affects the sending of signals from nerves to muscles. The presence of acetylcholine receptor antibodies confirms the diagnosis of myasthenia gravis. Almost half the people with ocular myasthenia gravis also have this antibody in their bodies. However, the lack of this antibody is not enough to rule out myasthenia gravis. About 1 in 5 people with  myasthenia gravis have no signs of this antibody.
