Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of Smilecreator Of Naples Urges Readers To Maintain Their Maintenance Dental Appointments For Overall Health.

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, reminds readers how stress affects the health of the mouth and encourages keeping appointments and the exploration of holistic dentistry.

 Naples, FL, June 30, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “Stay Calm And Keep Your Mouth Health,” in which Dr. Hernandez talks about how integral oral health is to overall health.

Dr. Hernandez writes, “Don’t let Covid-19 disrupt your healthy dental care routine.” He continues adding, “While all dental offices were shut down for a couple of months, our doors are now open.” He emphasizes, “Dental offices have always been meticulously careful and pristinely clean. We have been wearing masks for at least 20 years and have always worn gloves.”

“If you’ve had to postpone a regular cleaning due to the pandemic,” says Dr. Hernandez, “you may want to make sure you get one back on the schedule as soon as possible. The added stress that the unknown causes can create weaknesses in the mouth and could cause problems.” He adds, “Do not slack on your home oral health care. Be more diligent than ever.”

Dr. Hernandez also encourages, “Do your best to stay calm. Incorporating meditation or yoga or a daily walk into your routine can be very helpful. Know that, “this too shall pass.” Of course it isn’t passing as quickly as we’d all like, but it will pass eventually.”

 According to Dr. Hernandez it is important that, “If you have a dental emergency, take care of it immediately. The mouth is the gateway to the entire body and an abscessed tooth, if not treated, can lead to serious problems. Gingivitis can lead to heart disease and strokes.”

Your Dentist Should Be Part Of Your Cardiovascular Health Team

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.
