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 pleasures and dangers of the human mouth and how it can reveal one’s tendency toward deadly diseases.


Naples, FL, June 24, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “Your Mouth Can Help Or Hurt Your Heart.” Dr. Hernandez relates a personal experience and introduces readers to an exciting and life-saving new testing method.


“Think about the mouth,” writes Dr. Nilo, adding, “That amazing orifice through which we enjoy so many things: conversation, kissing, eating delicious food, drinking, laughing, smiling.” He continues, “The desire to put things in our mouths starts early for us humans. Infants put things in their mouths the moment they are able to start exploring their new environment. The mouth is highly sensitive, and it’s very dirty.”


Dr. Nilo points out that, “According to Harvard researchers humans have as many as 615 and counting types of bacteria in our mouths. That’s even more than the 600 dogs have.” He says, “And, it’s really no wonder with all the things we put in our mouths which is the perfect warm, wet breeding place for germs and bacteria.” “It is becoming more and more clear,” writes Dr. Nilo, “that some of the bacteria found in the human mouth can indicate one’s tendency toward heart disease, stroke and even diabetes.”


According to Dr. Nilo, “Because of all the bacteria in the mouth, human bites are considered among the most dangerous and potentially deadly. The diseases that can be transmitted through a human bite include hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpes simplex virus (HSV), syphilis, tuberculosis, actinomycosis, and tetanus.”


“Fortunately,” writes Dr. Nilo, “most humans don’t run around baring their teeth at other humans and threaten to bite when they get angry. I said “most.” There was that case of the Uruguayan soccer player a few years back who bit an Italian rival in a game! And, many children do seem to have a natural tendency to want to bite before they are taught to deal with their emotions differently.”

“These days, I’m pretty obsessed with testing the bacteria in my patients’ mouths,” says Dr. Nilo. He adds, “As a dentist, I used to be obsessed only with giving my patients the ability to smile comfortably and chew their food well with the help of implants. I still love doing that, but things changed after I had two “silent” heart attacks.”
