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, rates Vitamin D as one of the most important elements in promoting excellent oral health and helping strengthen the immune system.

Naples, FL, February 21, 2021: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Smile: Vitamin D Gets An A+ For Its Role In Oral Health And Immune System Health.” Dr. Hernandez has been promoting the health benefits of Vitamin D throughout his years of practice and emphasizes its importance during the pandemic.

Dr. Hernandez states, “The more we learn about the role Vitamin D plays in our health, the more we like it. First of all,” he explains, “it’s a vitamin we get from being out in the sunshine.” Then he poses, “Who doesn’t love a beautiful sunny day?”  As Dr. Hernandez explains, “Vitamin D is made from cholesterol in the skin when exposed to sunlight. And don’t be fooled into thinking if you work next to a window that you’re getting your daily dose. It doesn’t work that way. You have to get out in the sun and expose as much skin as you can to the sunlight.”

According to Dr. Hernandez, “Evidence has demonstrated that vitamin D deficiency may place subjects at risk for not only low mineral bone density/osteoporosis and osteopenia but also infectious and chronic inflammatory diseases. Both of those results are significant in terms of oral health and in the ability to fight off infections like COVID-19 and other viruses.”

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.

 

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of Smilecreator Of Naples Discusses The Cause Of Cardiovascular Disease In More Than 50% Of All Heart Attacks.

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, reveals that a biological dentist can discover unknown, underlying health issues that could help his readers strengthen their immune systems during this pandemic.

Naples, FL, July 28, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “It’s Time To Entrust Your Heart Health To Your Dentist.” Dr. Hernandez reveals how a simple DNA test could be lifesaving. 

Dr. Hernandez states, “Clearly, you would not go to a cardiologist to find out what’s wrong if you have a toothache.” He goes on to add, “But, if your dentist is a biological dentist who employs the BaleDoneen method, you definitely would and should go to your dentist to find out if you have or are at high risk of having cardiovascular disease. This dentist could also tell you if you are at risk for a stroke, dementia or diabetes.”

As Dr. Hernandez points out, “The mouth is the gateway to the entire body. And more and more it is becoming understood that high risk periodontal pathogens cause heart disease.” He emphasizes, “Your dentist is the only medical professional that can tell you if you have the high-risk pathogens responsible for the number one cause of death and disability.”

According to Dr. Hernandez, “In fact, periodontal disease may be an underlying and potentially treatable cause of about 50% of all heart attacks.”

“As a biological dental practice,” writes Dr. Hernandez, “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.”

Dr. Hernandez asserts that, “Cardiovascular incidents are preventable with proper care and attention to the underlying causes such as diet and other forms that contribute to a healthy lifestyle. We use DNA testing to discover if you have the high-risk periodontal pathogens that indicate a risk for the diseases that are at the top of the list for causing death.”

Dr. Hernandez points out that, “What most people do not know is that there are roughly 60,000 miles of arteries through which blood flows throughout the entire human body. The heart is the muscle that pumps the blood, but the arteries are the delivery system. So,” he adds, “having a heart attack or a stroke is not just about blockage in the main arteries leading to the heart or the brain. There could be blockage anywhere in those 60,000 miles.”

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.

 

 

 

From The Mayo Clinic To Your Mouth To The Healthiest Decade Yet

This new decade that we are just stepping into could be devoted to seeing more clearly. Since 20/20 vision is good, normal vision, it makes sense. But, I would like to suggest that this be the decade devoted to the mouth and to excellent dental health. It’s becoming more and more clear that oral health is the key to the body’s overall health. In fact, the Mayo Clinic, named the best hospital in the nation and ranked No. 1 in more specialties than any other hospital in the country, has quite a bit to say on the topic of oral health. They agree that an investment in your “oral health is an investment in your overall health.”

 

Put your money where your mouth is and improve your health this year and for the rest of your life. Take it from the Mayo Clinic, then take that information to your dentist your first and best line of defense when it comes to your health.

 

The following is from https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/adult-health/in-depth/dental/art-20047475

 

What conditions can be linked to oral health?

Your oral health might contribute to various diseases and conditions, including:

  • This infection of the inner lining of your heart chambers or valves (endocardium) typically occurs when bacteria or other germs from another part of your body, such as your mouth, spread through your bloodstream and attach to certain areas in your heart.
  • Cardiovascular disease.Although the connection is not fully understood, some research suggests that heart disease, clogged arteries and stroke might be linked to the inflammation and infections that oral bacteria can cause.
  • Pregnancy and birth complications.Periodontitis has been linked to premature birth and low birth weight.
  • Certain bacteria in your mouth can be pulled into your lungs, causing pneumonia and other respiratory diseases.

Certain conditions also might affect your oral health, including:

  • By reducing the body’s resistance to infection, diabetes puts your gums at risk. Gum disease appears to be more frequent and severe among people who have diabetes.

Research shows that people who have gum disease have a harder time controlling their blood sugar levels. Regular periodontal care can improve diabetes control.

  • HIV/AIDS.Oral problems, such as painful mucosal lesions, are common in people who have HIV/AIDS.
  • This bone-weakening disease is linked with periodontal bone loss and tooth loss. Certain drugs used to treat osteoporosis carry a small risk of damage to the bones of the jaw.
  • Alzheimer’s disease.Worsening oral health is seen as Alzheimer’s disease progresses.

Other conditions that might be linked to oral health include eating disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, certain cancers and an immune system disorder that causes dry mouth (Sjogren’s syndrome).

 

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of Smilecreator Of Naples Suggests A Different Sort Of New Year’s Resolution For Overall Health.

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, suggests putting the improvement of oral health at the top of New Year’s Resolutions list.

Naples, FL, January 13, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, May Your Mouth Be Healthy And Bright, in which Dr. Hernandez talks about the importance of oral health to the entire body.

“Happy New Year,” says Dr. Hernandez, continuing with, “Here we go again, on another 365-day ride around the sun! This year we are also on the threshold of a brand-new decade as well.” Dr. Hernandez points out that, “Most of us start the New Year out enthusiastically making resolutions as we imagine all the great things we are going to do to get in shape, feel better and give our mentality a younger boost. The start of a New Year is always exciting. Unfortunately, the enthusiasm tends to wither before the end of the month.”

Dr. Hernandez suggest, “Perhaps while you are still enthusiastic you’ll put your oral health at the top of your New Year’s Resolutions list. Just replace it with the “lose 10 pounds” resolution!” He goes on to write, “After all your oral health is key to your overall health since your mouth is the entryway to your whole body. Your teeth are living entities that have direct connections with your circulatory and lymphatic systems.”

“You show off your teeth every time you smile,” states Dr. Hernandez. He adds, “If you notice people who don’t smile, it may be because they are not happy with what’s going on in their mouth. Why not make it a goal to find a dentist who considers your overall health and does diagnostic testing that can tell if you are at risk for serious diseases?”

May Your Mouth Be Healthy And Bright

Happy New Year! Here we go again, on another 365-day ride around the sun! This year we are also on the threshold of a brand-new decade as well. Most of us start the New Year out enthusiastically making resolutions as we imagine all the great things we are going to do to get in shape, feel better and give our mentality a younger boost. The start of a New Year is always exciting. Unfortunately, the enthusiasm tends to wither before the end of the month.

 

Put Your Resolutions Where Your Mouth Is

Perhaps while you are still enthusiastic you’ll put your oral health at the top of your New Year’s Resolutions list. Just replace it with the “lose 10 pounds” resolution! After all, your oral health is key to your overall health since your mouth is the entryway to your whole body. Your teeth are living entities that have direct connections with your circulatory and lymphatic systems.

 

You show off your teeth every time you smile. If you notice people who don’t smile, it may be because they are not happy with what’s going on in their mouth. Why not make it a goal to find a dentist who considers your overall health and does diagnostic testing that can tell if you are at risk for serious diseases?

 

Find A Dentist Whose Concern Is Your Whole Health

A holistic approach to dentistry and oral health will look at other body systems in search for answers. For example, holistic dentists will look at metal toxicity, pH levels in saliva and use DNA testing to find ways to strengthen the body. Biologic and holistic approaches are not much different, except they take a stricter approach to using materials that do not react negatively with the body, saliva and or surrounding tissues. I am not at all implying that the traditional approach to dentistry is bad at all. It has been used successfully for many years. But when a person is suffering with ongoing dental disease or some other body malfunction, using a holistic approach may help get closer to the body’s favorable responses in healing.

 

In our office, 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. Cardiovascular incidents are preventable with proper care and attention to these underlying culprits, diet and other forms of cleaner lifestyle living.

 

When You’re Smiling…∫

…the whole world smiles with you! And when you smile easily and effortlessly that typically means you are comfortable with what’s going on in your mouth. That also often means that you are not in pain or distress in other parts of your body. A healthy mouth is reflective of the health of all your bodily systems.

 

So, if your New Year’s resolution involves feeling better, looking better, getting in shape and adopting a younger more vital mentality, consider your oral health. It could be the beginning of the healthiest happiest you ever!

 

Give us a call and ask us how we can help you achieve your healthy resolutions.

 

 

 

93% Of People Who Have Diabetes Also Have Periodontal Disease

93% is a pretty profound number considering the decades that have gone by without someone taking notice of the correlation between periodontal disease and diabetes. Fortunately, we have come to the time when the connection has been made. Research now shows us that with advanced periodontal treatment, dental professionals can lower A1c levels as well as most medications without all the terrible side effects.

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a dental professional instead of ingesting a lifetime of drugs with side effects. Nonsurgical periodontal treatment improves glycemic control in Type 2 diabetes. And, advanced periodontal treatment has been shown to reduce health complications for patients with diabetes, reducing annual healthcare costs by as much as 25%.

It isn’t just diabetes that has a correlation with periodontal disease. Seventy-five percent of heart attacks and most strokes are known to be caused by plaque rupture and blood clots, not merely the narrowing of arteries. By reducing inflammation in the body with advanced professional dental care and advanced home care, diabetes, heart attacks and strokes – the three major life-threatening conditions we are plagued with – can often be brought back into the “safe zone.”

Three screenings are required to see if you are at risk for heart attacks, strokes and diabetes. A simple new finger stick test called the Heart Smart ScreenTM allows dental professionals to determine all three factors of inflammation. This can be done right in the dental office. Find out if your dental professional provides the Heart Smart ScreenTM. We have been providing our patients with this life-saving screening since we found out about it. Give our office a call and schedule your screening today.

Alzheimer’s Disease, Oral Health And Fear Of The Dentist

November is Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. As a dentist and oral surgeon who studies the link between oral health and many of the most feared diseases, I now turn my attention to the link between oral health and Alzheimer’s Disease.

 

Anything that penetrates the blood brain barrier has an effect on the brain. Alcohol and drugs definitely have an effect on the brain for that very reason. They both penetrate the blood brain barrier. Alzheimer’s Disease is an inflammation in the brain and current research is suggesting a link between infections of the mouth and the brain that cause the disease.

 

Mouth To Brain

Scientists have been searching for the potential root causes and many are now zeroing in on infections that originate in the oral cavity. According to a report I recently read, “Researchers have well established that many bacteria in the mouth, particularly in people with gum disease, find their way into the host bloodstream; if they pass the blood brain barrier – and any number of them could be implicated in the Alzheimer’s enigma.” https://www.dentalproductsreport.com/dental/article/there-link-between-alzheimers-and-oral-health?page=0,2

 

As the report also shows, “There is even some evidence that oral Candida and herpes virus could possibly cause the inflammation in the brain that is seen in Alzheimer’s patients. Candida is a typically harmless fungus that is found in the mouths of half the world’s human population. However it can become treacherous and lead to infection if it enters the bloodstream. And herpes simplex virus is present in more than 70 percent of the population after 50 years of age. It persists latently in the peripheral nervous system and is periodically reactivated in the brain.”

https://www.dentalproductsreport.com/dental/article/there-link-between-alzheimers-and-oral-health?page=0,2

 

And Now For People Who Are Afraid Of Going To The Dentist

When one considers the effect oral health has on the overall health of the body, I wonder what’s scarier, getting Alzheimer’s Disease or going to the dentist regularly? I wrote about fear of the dentist last month too. I feel this topic deserves a lot of attention because fear of going to a dentist affects a huge segment of people worldwide. In fact, according to a recent survey taken by 18,000 people worldwide, 61% said they suffer from dental fear. Almost 4% of the respondents said they have never been to a dentist!

 

Dental techniques are continually being improved and dentists are becoming more skillful at helping patients relax. But, for so many reasons there are people who just can’t seem to overcome the fears, which are varied. For instance the largest number of people are afraid of the pain. Others don’t like the smell of chemicals or the sound of the drill. Others are afraid of being stuck in the dental chair, which means they are afraid of not being in control.

 

It isn’t just Alzheimer’s Disease that is being linked to oral health. As I’ve talked about before, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, some cancers and strokes are being found to be more prominent in people with gum disease and certain types of bacteria in the oral cavity. And, a recent study by the Yale School of Medicine found an increased rate of pneumonia among those with poor dental health.

 

The mouth is the portal to the entire body. It is how we greet the world with a smile. May you overcome any fear you may have and may you treat your oral health as the most important aspect of overall health.

 

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of SmileCreator Of Naples And Best-selling Co-author Gives Prospective Dental Patients Something Important To Think About.

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, gives insight into the future of the accurate testing for some of the most common and deadly diseases which could likely happen at your dentists’ office if you find a dentist who practices up-to-date testing techniques.

 

Naples, FL, November 07, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Periodontal Disease Increases The Body’s Burden Of Inflammation.”  Dr. Hernandez explores some of the latest findings on the relationship of gum disease and other life-threatening diseases.

 

As Dr. Hernandez points out, “Medical researchers and scientists are looking more closely to discover if there is a solid cause/effect relationship between periodontal disease and other diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and arthritis.” He continues, “It has already been discovered that people with gum disease (periodontal disease) have two to three times the risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or other serious cardiovascular event.” Though he also states, “So far, however, a direct correlation has not been made. The fact is that many people with heart disease have healthy gums, and not everyone with gum disease develops heart problems.”

 

“Despite the lack of solid confirmation,” says Dr. Hernandez, “there is a growing suspicion that gum disease may be an independent risk factor for heart disease.” He adds, “According to periodontist Dr. Hatice Hasturk of the Harvard-affiliated Forsyth Institute, a not-for-profit research organization focused on oral health, “Periodontal disease increases the body’s burden of inflammation,” https://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/gum-disease-and-heart-disease-the-common-thread

 

According to Dr. Hernandez, “It is also an established fact that long-term or chronic inflammation is a key contributor to many health problems, especially atherosclerosis.”
