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, suggests that many people who are a little too happy about having to wear masks in public may not be happy about their teeth.

Naples, FL, January 28, 2021: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Unmask A Beautiful Smile” Dr. Hernandez launches into his first blog of the year with a suggestion that some people may be too comfortable wearing masks because they are uncomfortable with the condition of their teeth.

Dr. Hernandez states, “I give my patients something to smile about.” He continues, “This has been my purpose as a dentist. I love giving people the ability to smile their brightest smile sometimes after not having been able to smile for a long time! “

As Dr. Hernandez points out, “2020 was a year that made it difficult to smile due to the pandemic and everything else that transpired last year. Wearing protective masks became mandatory out in public. Now,” he adds, “we can’t smile at each other.” Though he says, “We are starting to be able to read when a person is smiling by their eyes.”

According to Dr. Hernandez, “For some people who are insecure about their teeth and the health of their mouth, I imagine the mask has provided a degree of comfort and confidence. Some people may not want to give the mask up. But I have a better suggestion. Why not use this time, while you have to wear the mask, to get your teeth fixed and improve your oral health?”

Unmask A Beautiful Smile

I give my patients something to smile about. This has been my purpose as a dentist. I love giving people the ability to smile their brightest smile sometimes after not having been able to smile for a long time!

2020 was a year that made it difficult to smile due to the pandemic and everything else that transpired last year. Wearing protective masks became mandatory out in public. Now, we can’t smile at each other. We are starting to be able to read when a person is smiling by their eyes.

For some people who are insecure about their teeth and the health of their mouth, I imagine the mask has provided a degree of comfort and confidence. Some people may not want to give the mask up. But I have a better suggestion. Why not use this time, while you have to wear the mask, to get your teeth fixed and improve your oral health?

Hiding behind a mask is not the answer to an unhealthy mouth and teeth you’re afraid to show with a big smile. That is no way to live. The ability to improve your smile is more accessible than ever. And if you’re afraid to go to the dentist, believe me, there are so many ways to make your visits pain-free.

This is a great goal to set for your New Year. Give my office a call and let’s get you on the road to unmasking a beautiful smile. By the time this pandemic is over, you’ll never want to hide behind a mask again. Let’s do it!

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of SmileCreator Of Naples And Best-selling Co-author Shares His Thoughts About The Continuing Effects Of The Pandemic.

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, extends wishes for a happier, healthier New Year in light of the continuation of the restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Naples, FL, January 02, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “The Year The World Stood Still.” Dr. Hernandez launches into his year-end blog with a look back to a 1951 film.

Dr. Hernandez informs his readers that, “Back in 1951 there was a movie called The Day The Earth Stood Still. Science fiction back in the 50’s,” he adds, “considered the earth coming to a standstill for one day as a very out-there idea. But here we are in 2020 and the world came to a complete standstill not just for a day but for months.”

“Even when shelter-in-place orders were first issued,” Dr. Hernandez says, “I have to admit, I thought it might last for a few days or a week at most. Nearly a full year later we are still experiencing massive unemployment, business shutdowns, social distancing, the quarantining, the travel moratorium and people are still getting the COVID-19 virus.”

Dr. Hernandez states, “I also admit, I too am getting a bit weary.  I will not however, let the weariness win. I am grateful that I am still in business and that my patients are doing their very best to keep up with their oral health check-ups and procedures. On an even brighter note,” he continues, “life continues to unfold. There are new babies being born, lovers getting married even though they can’t have the big splashy weddings. I see closeness being born amid families who once were too busy for each other. We have an opportunity to get reacquainted with our spouses, our children, our dearest friends. We have been forced to slow down.”

The Year The World Stood Still

Back in 1951 there was a movie called The Day The Earth Stood Still. Science fiction back in the 50’s considered the earth coming to a standstill for one day as a very out-there idea. But here we are in 2020 and the world came to a complete standstill not just for a day but for months.

Even when shelter-in-place orders were first issued, I have to admit, I thought it might last for a few days or a week at most. Nearly a full year later we are still experiencing massive unemployment, business shutdowns, social distancing, the quarantining, the travel moratorium and people are still getting the COVID-19 virus.

I also admit, I too am getting a bit weary.  I will not however, let the weariness win. I am grateful that I am still in business and that my patients are doing their very best to keep up with their oral health check-ups and procedures. On an even brighter note, life continues to unfold. There are new babies being born, lovers getting married even though they can’t have the big splashy weddings. I see closeness being born amid families who once were too busy for each other. We have an opportunity to get reacquainted with our spouses, our children, our dearest friends. We have been forced to slow down.

Yes, everything came to a screeching halt for a while. But we are continuing to move forward albeit more slowly. I think I might want to embrace the slower pace and make that part of my daily life instead of trying to keep pace with the crazy pace the digital world would have us embrace.

Here’s to the New Year unfolding perfectly for each and everyone.

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of Smilecreator Of Naples Writes About A Quicker Way To Realign Teeth in Conjunction With Invisalign.

Naples dentist

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, provides information about a treatment he has been using successfully for several years to more quickly give patients the smiles they love.

Naples, FL, December 17, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “Correct Misaligned Teeth And Get The Beautiful Smile You Want 62% Faster,” in which Dr. Hernandez explains The MOPs Propel® Effect.

Dr. Hernandez writes, “If you’ve been considering getting Invisalign to correct misaligned teeth due to natural causes, age-related movement or periodontal disease in order to achieve the perfect smile you dream of having, I’ve got great news for you.” He elaborates, “No matter what condition you are desiring to correct, be it simple or complex, you can achieve your beautiful smile with Invisalign or braces up to 62% faster than usual.” According to Dr. Hernandez, “Abnormal alignment of the teeth and jaws is very common and regular braces have made it possible, and Invisalign has made it so much easier, for people of every age to make the corrections that make it possible to love their smiles. And now,” he adds, “there’s a technique that speeds up the entire process.”

 “For the past few years,” Dr. Hernandez states, “I have been using, with great success, what is known as The MOPs Effect, which stands for Micro Osteo Perforation under the brand name of Propel®. It is a university developed and FDA cleared technique that is used to accelerate the rate of orthodontic tooth movement in conjunction with braces and/or Invisalign. Micro means extremely small. Osteo relates to the bones. And perforation relates to a small hole made by boring or piercing.”

Dr. Hernandez explains, “For instance, if an Invisalign treatment would normally take up to a full year, with The MOPs Effect, you can cut that time in half, maybe even more.  This is possible by boring microscopically small dimples along the gumline causing micro fractures within the bone that in turn accelerate the body’s ability to break down and subsequently rebuild bone.” As Dr. Hernandez states, “This allows the teeth to move more quickly thus cutting down the time requirement for realignment.”

Correct Misaligned Teeth And Get The Beautiful Smile You Want 62% Faster

If you’ve been considering getting Invisalign to correct misaligned teeth due to natural causes, age related movement or periodontal disease in order to achieve the perfect smile you dream of having, I’ve got great news for you. No matter what condition you are desiring to correct, be it simple or complex, you can achieve your beautiful smile with Invisalign or braces up to 62% faster than usual. Abnormal alignment of the teeth and jaws is very common and regular braces have made it possible, and Invisalign has made it so much easier, for people of every age to make the corrections that make it possible to love their smiles. And now, there’s a technique that speeds up the entire process.

 

The MOPs Effect

 For the past few years, I have been using, with great success, what is known as The MOPs Effect, which stands for Micro Osteo Perforation under the brand name of Propel®. It is a university developed and FDA cleared technique that is used to accelerate the rate of orthodontic tooth movement in conjunction with braces and/or Invisalign. Micro means extremely small. Osteo relates to the bones. And perforation relates to a small hole made by boring or piercing.

For instance, if an Invisalign treatment would normally take up to a full year, with The MOPs Effect, you can cut that time in half, maybe even more.  This is possible by boring microscopically small dimples along the gum line causing micro-fractures within the bone that in turn accelerate the body’s ability to break down and subsequently rebuild bone. This allows the teeth to move more quickly thus cutting down the time required for realignment.

 

Quick And Pain-free

The MOPs Effect is performed in-office within a matter of minutes with only topical anesthetic required. There is little to no recovery time as the process is virtually pain-free. This process is more predictable than just regular braces and Invisalign. You’ll spend less time in the orthodontic chair and you’ll have something to smile about all the time at the end of your treatment period.

 

Faster Is Better

When it comes to realigning teeth, there is no question that faster is better. The MOPs Effect is the most predictable method now available in conjunction with either regular braces or Invisalign. Are you ready to smile like you’ve never smiled before? If you are, give my office a call and let’s set up a consultation to see how quickly we can give you something to smile about.

Make Sure You Have Heart-Healthy Gums

Your gums can indicate whether you are prone to heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s Disease. Yes, your gums. Healthy gums don’t always, but often do indicate health within the body organs. If they are free of inflammation, chances are your arteries are too.

The mouth is the gateway to the entire body. It has been shown time and time again that poor dental health and gum disease (aka periodontitis) is associated with an increased risk of developing heart disease. If you’ve already had heart surgery to and have artificial heart valves, you want to make sure you maintain excellent oral health.

Most people don’t think about oral health having any connection to other diseases. I hope that this changes and I am doing everything I can to help educate my patients and those who follow my blogs and articles to understand how important oral health is to heart health and overall health.

During these stressful times that we are living through, oral health easily gets pushed aside. Many people may be afraid to go to the dentist for routine check-ups or cleanings. I can assure you that dentist are taking every precaution to protect not only our patients but ourselves and our employees. We have always been extra cautious because we know about the bacteria that is found in the oral cavity. In addition, stress takes its toll on oral health. Everyone has individual weak spots and for some it is the mouth and gums. Likewise, tooth loss patterns are also connected to coronary artery disease.

Our mouths are integral to our happiness and well-being. We express ourselves through words spoken through the mouth. We enjoy having lovely teeth so we can smile easily. We enjoy eating and without a healthy mouth, that pleasure can turn to pain. Please pay more attention to your oral health especially during this stressful time. Your gum health can keep your heart and your entire body health.

 

Your Mouth is The Gateway To Your Health Especially During This Pandemic

If you have been following me for any length of time, you know that one of the most frequent topics that I talk, write and educate about is the importance of oral health to overall health and wellbeing. Our oral health plays an even more integral role in our wellbeing now as we are dealing with the COVID-19 virus.

Shelter-at-home restrictions have been eased quite a bit. For those of us in the dental profession, for several months we only treated emergencies. Now that we are back in our offices, I want to remind you that keeping your previously scheduled dental appointment or scheduling a maintenance visit is safe and important to keeping your resistance to COVID strong.

Let me assure you, if there is any doubt in your mind that dental offices in general are hyper-sensitive about cleanliness and the protection of patients and employees. We have worn masks and gloves for years and continue to improve protocols in the equipment that is used in our practices. We are taking many new precautions to protect our patients and ourselves from exposure to COVID-19 as issued by the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in light of COVID-19. Rest assured, you will be safe at our dental offices

Although the new safety procedures may make your office visit feel different, taking excellent care of your teeth and gums remains one of the best ways to protect your overall health — and reduce your risk for heart attacks, strokes, dementia and other life-threatening conditions.

Remember, COVID-19 is more threatening to people who have those underlying health conditions. So you want to do everything you can to make sure you are as healthy as can be. And you want to stay that way!

 

Your Mouth Is The Biggest Gateway To The Inside Of Your Body And Disease

A clean healthy mouth is one of the most important keys to a healthy body. We are learning this clearly as a result of COVID19. The mouth, being the largest orifice on your face, is the way most viruses, bacteria and germs enter the body and cause illness. We are all becoming experts at how this particular virus is transmitted…or at least everyone should be.

 

How COVID19 Is Transmitted

Just in case you aren’t sure how the COVID19 virus is transmitted, here it is. The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air. They quickly fall on floors or surfaces. You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within 4 feet of a person who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth before washing your hands.

 

Most Humans Touch Their Faces Constantly

 Studies have found that people touch their faces more than 16 times in an hour. In fact, we touch our faces so often that the odds of re-contaminating our hands between washings are extremely high. Since the eyes and the mouth are areas where viruses can easily enter the body, many experts suggest wearing gloves can help break the habit of frequently touching your face.

Dirty Mouth

Add to the fact that the human mouth is full of bacteria because the mouth is a warm, wet environment, and these are perfect conditions for bacteria to reproduce. Consider this: About 800 to 1,000 different types of bacteria may call your mouth “home.” Despite their tiny size, bacteria can do some big damage to your mouth. They do this by forming a sticky layer called plaque on your teeth, causing damage to your teeth and gums by releasing acids. These acids break down tooth enamel and can cause tooth decay. The bacteria in plaque can also foster swollen, painful gums.

Considering the normal dirty condition of the mouth, periodontal disease, cracked, broken or missing teeth create an even unhealthier environment in which viruses can more easily make their way into the body. Also, very often people with unhealthy mouths often have underlying chronic conditions that make them more vulnerable to getting the virus and having to be hospitalized.

 

Keep Your Mouth Clean And Healthy

 Flossing and brushing after every meal and snack helps prevent plaque build-up. Having your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year and more frequently if you have gum disease is also important for maintaining good oral health. Getting teeth repaired and replaced with implants will improve oral health too.

We are all becoming experts about how long the COVID19 virus stays communicable on various different surfaces, yet so far no one has mentioned the cleanliness of the mouth. I am taking this on as my personal mission to help people understand long-term that oral health is the key to all-around good health. If you have a dental emergency during the pandemic, I am sure your dentist can make arrangements to see you. However, the moment everyone gets back to business, make it your business to get your mouth as healthy as possible and learn how to maintain excellent oral health. It will be your best defense against germs and viruses…That and, of course, keeping your hands away from your face.
