Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, best-selling co-author of the book, The Will To Win, with Brian Tracy, and owner of the Smilecreator of Naples, talks about the unhealthy results of neglecting oral health.

Naples, FL, July 17, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “A Few Thoughts To Chew On For Oral Health,” in which Dr. Hernandez provides dietary tips that are like premium fuel for oral health.

Dr. Hernandez writes, “As a dentist, I see people of all ages coming to salvage their oral health oftentimes when it is barely salvageable.” He adds, “The common neglect of oral health is rampant in our indulgent society. We have access to every kind of rich food on a daily basis. And, we do indulge in it.” He opines, “In a sense, every day of the year is a holiday when it comes to what people eat. And that is the downfall when it comes to oral health.”

According to Dr. Hernandez, “Premium fuel for the body is as important as using good fuel in your car.” He continues, “We’ve been told endlessly to monitor our sugar consumption. Sugar is like acid to teeth.” Dr. Hernandez emphasizes, “It corrodes, causes cavities and disrupts the balance of healthy bacteria in the mouth. Nonetheless, we are a society sugar-obsessed. Sugar is in just about every processed food on the supermarket shelves.”
