, talks about how the Halloween celebration has typically been a boon to dentists and a great time to begin instilling good oral hygiene practices into young children.

 

Naples, FL, September **, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “An Oral Health Guide In Anticipation Of Halloween,” in which Dr. Hernandez talks about why he shares an article from baledoneen.com.

 

Dr. Hernandez writs, “As we move further away from summer and deeper into the fall season, thoughts of Halloween start to play in the minds of children and parents across the country.” He continues, “As the first celebration of the fall season Halloween is one that has historically been detrimental to oral health and fundamental to keeping many dentists in business! So much sugar consumed in such a short period of time. Dentists can pretty much count on emergency appointments with children who have tooth aches in the weeks after Halloween.”

 

“As a dentist who employs and works with the Bale-Doneen method,” says Dr. Hernandez, “I want to share what they have posted on their website in honor of National Dental Hygiene Month.” He further explains, “Teaching children to keep their mouth clean is an important lesson to establish early. To that end and to the hopeful avoidance of the scary things that can happen when one doesn’t tend to their oral hygiene, I am posting an article from baledoneen.com in its entirety.”

 

The title of the baledoneen.com article is “4 Scary Reasons to Take Your Dental Health Seriously” in the article it is said that, “October is National Dental Hygiene Month, which honors the work of a potentially lifesaving member of your heart-attack-and-stroke prevention team: your dental provider.” The article continues, “Recent research links poor oral health to increased risk for many deadly disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and cardiovascular disease (CVD), the leading killer of Americans.”

, writes about the body as electrical system and how holistic dentistry does not disrupt system.

 

Naples, FL, August 5, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “The Body Electric And Holistic Dentistry,” in which Dr. Hernandez explains the difference between holistic and traditional dentistry.

Dr. Hernandez writes, “You may have been hearing more and more about Holistic Dentistry as holistic dentists are being sought out more frequently.” He adds, “But maybe you’re not quite sure what the difference is between a holistic dentist and a regular dentist. Let me clear things up for you. “

According to Dr. Hernandez, “As a group, Holistic Dentists work based on the fact that the body is an energy field made up of electrical charges. With that in mind, when you go to a holistic dentist for implants or fillings, nonmetallic materials are used so as not to disrupt the body’s electrical charge.”

“You see,” says Dr. Hernandez, “our bodies are “electric”. Electricity is everywhere, even in the human body. Our cells are specialized to conduct electrical currents. Electricity is required for the nervous system to send signals throughout the body and to the brain making it possible for us to move, think and feel.” He emphasizes, “If there are objects placed in the body that disrupt the electrical flow of signals, it can be very harmful.”

What’s Going On In Your Mouth Affects Your Whole Body

smile_creator_taples_alt_img_tags_51

We are living in an age where science and technology offer us unprecedented access to information. Our human curiosity has led us to delve into the science of the human body in search of the most advanced methods to preserve our health. Over time it has been discovered that a healthy diet and exercise is a tried and true method toward overall good health. However, what exactly is a ‘healthy diet’?

There are diets that propose they are the ‘answer’ to all health problems that are diametrically opposite each other. There’s the high-protein diet, the South Beach Diet, the Mediterranean Diet, the Paleo Diet, the fat diet. There are vegetarians and vegans and bone broth enthusiasts, there are those who restrict their flesh eating to fish and call themselves pescatarians. And there are those who only breathe and feel that they get all the nourishment necessary from the air that they breathe. See what I mean? A “healthy diet” means different things to different people.

Holistic Dentistry

As a Holistic Dentist, I may suggest a change of diet that you may or may not choose to follow. But of this I can assure you that whatever goes into your mouth can affect your entire body. In fact, in my dental practice we employ and follow the BaleDoneen Method to incorporate the study and prevention of the link between heart disease, strokes and gum disease. Many silent underlying diseases of the mouth like old failing root canals have been proven to contribute to elevated chances of having a severe stroke or heart disease. Cardio vascular incidents are preventable with proper care and attention to these underlying culprits.

 

Holistic Dentistry is nothing more than providing the proper conditions for the body to help heal itself better and faster. Holistic dentistry’s focus includes not introducing unnecessary chemicals or substances into the body that may harm tissues, organs or our own ability to heal.

The true differences between holistic dentistry and traditional dentistry is philosophical: traditional dentistry is the practice of treating the symptoms in the teeth and gums and attempting to prevent such problems from reoccurring. Holistic dentistry is the practice of treating the underlying problems that cause symptoms in the mouth, attempting to eliminate those problems (and, hence, preventing the symptoms from reoccurring) while ensuring the work done in the mouth does not have an adverse effect on your overall health.

 

Modern Medical Advances Support Holistic Approach To Health

Modern medical advances have given us the ability to test saliva and conduct DNA analysis to evaluate the connection between periodontal disease, heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Both of these conditions have been proven to be quite sickening to the body. If we can identify these conditions early, they can be treated and probably reversed with proper care. Holistic dentists work in cohesion many times with other practitioners. For example, we work closely with MDs like functional medicine providers. We also work very closely with Pulmonologists, ENTs and cardiologists.

The ability of the body to heal itself more naturally is what holistic dentistry is about. We provide dental care considering the entire body and how it is a balanced part of the entirety of the human body. We work with our patients’ cardiovascular and other medical teams as well. If you’ve been looking for a holistic approach to dentistry, give us a call.

 

 

Your Dentist Should Be Part Of Your Cardiovascular Health Team

smile_creator_taples_alt_img_tags_52

Have you ever heard the expression

that, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”? I know many young women of an older generation were commonly told that by their mothers. Those young women were inspired to learn how to cook in order to attract a husband.

The fact of the matter is that the way to anybody’s heart is through their mouth. I’m not referring to the yumminess of the food that gets put into the mouth. I’m talking specifically about oral health and the kind of bacteria that is dominant in the mouth.

In recent years, science has found that oral bacteria from periodontal (gum) disease is a contributing cause of heart disease. Recent studies show that if you have gum disease in a moderate or advanced stage, you’re at greater risk for heart disease than someone with healthy gums. In addition, your oral health can provide doctors with warning signs for a range of diseases and conditions, including those in the heart.

This is why your dentist should be part of your cardiovascular health team. Oral health and heart disease are connected by the spread of bacteria – and other germs – from your mouth to other parts of your body through the bloodstream.

So, very simply put, if your dentist is not part of your cardiovascular team, you are not getting the best heart health care nor are you receiving the best oral health care.

 

Better Use Premium Fuel Or Else…

smile_creator_taples_alt_img_tags_53

Fuel in the body is an interesting topic.

For one, we humans really enjoy eating. We also assume that we must eat…and we are right for the most part! Food is fuel. What we put into our bodies is very very important .

Our mouths are full of taste buds (glands) and they detect the tastes that we like and dislike. As humans, we want more of the tastes that we like. That is true for everything we do.

Besides being a source of pleasure, taste buds also act as a warning system. They alert us to the flavor profile, the intensity of the spices or flavor, and whether we feel the food needs something or not. As we age, these taste buds will lose some of their intrinsic function as other organs and systems in the body do that same. Older folks will typically enjoy a meal that is less intensely flavored than a younger person.

What About Teeth

How do the teeth come into this picture and what role do they play in the taste of foods? I am asked this by many patients when we are discussing replacing their missing or failed teeth. We must assess our teeth thoroughly and function similarly to an architect designing a structure.

One would not build a single-family home the same way one would build a multi-floor commercial building. Same holds true for the mouth. As a dentist, one of the most difficult situations we encounter is achieving the patient’s expectations. Most of the times these expectations are reasonable and can be met. The unreasonable ones are truly the tricky ones. For we are blessed when we can spot that one from afar and NOT take it on. But we shall leave this one for another topic, as it will be a long one.

People lose their teeth for several reasons. The leader in those reasons is neglect. Why? Neglect of teeth is often misrepresented because teeth usually do not hurt until it is too late. By the time a tooth begins to hurt, it is usually affecting the nerve and/or the tooth structure is unable to be fixed properly. This is where we try to save teeth beyond the reasonable expectation that it will last. Many times patients want to save their teeth when they realize that losing them changes everything.

Chew On This

Imagine for a moment what your life would be like if you could not chew your foods, smile with confidence or even if you could not speak properly and pronounce your words. What would you feel like? Every day as a dentist, I am challenged to find these solutions for everyday people just like you. All the while trying to accomplish what they have as chewing goals.

Chewing… here is a special word. Not everyone eats the same or chews the same. Some prefer raw vegetables; some prefer meats, and some prefer pizza. All these types of foods require a slight variance to how we design these teeth. Your dentist is the architect of your new mouth. So, treat me gently as I do hold a very key role to your life satisfaction.
