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.”

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of SmileCreator Of Naples And Best-selling Co-author Suggests An Important Frequent Habit To Help Protect Against COVID19.

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, writes about the important role a healthy mouth health plays in disease prevention and proposes that oral health is particularly relevant in light of the current worldwide pandemic.

 Naples, FL, April 21, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “How Excellent Oral Health Can Help You Fight Off Viruses,” in which Dr. Hernandez elaborates on important habits to include during the pandemic.

Dr. Hernandez writes, “We are in the midst of a worldwide pandemic like humanity has never experienced before.” He continues adding, “COVID19 is in the spotlight and we must take the suggested behaviors about social distancing, handwashing and keeping hands away from the face seriously. However,” he states, “there are other habits that are not being talked about that can also make a big difference in protecting you and your loved ones from the virus.”

“As a dentist,” says Dr. Hernandez, “the more I thought about this situation, the more I became fixated on the role a healthy mouth can have in this global health challenge.” According to Dr. Hernandez, “The health of the teeth and gums are major factors to be considered in the positive or negative outcome of the disease transmission process. If teeth and gums are well maintained and healthy, you’ll have a much better chance of not trapping harmful bacteria or viruses.” He goes on to say, “However, when teeth have cracks, pits and faulty old dental work, and when gums are inflamed due to periodontal disease, then you are at a much higher risk of having contaminants stay in those crevices, and for longer periods of time.”

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of Smilecreator Of Naples Talks About Some of the Reasons Why He Doesn’t Use Metal Implants In His Practice.

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 titanium versus ceramic implants.

 

Naples, FL, February 28, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, The Mouth Is The Perfect Environment For Conducting Electricity, in which Dr. Hernandez talks about how metal implants in the mouth conducts electricity.

 

Dr. Hernandez writes, “If you have children, you know how important it was when they were little to keep them away from electrical outlets and cords.” He continues adding, “Kids love putting things in their mouths. That’s how toddlers explore their new world. And with so many digital devices in our world, all of which require chargers, there are even more ways for a child to get into trouble with electricity.” He emphasizes, “The mouth is the perfect moist environment for conducting electricity.”

 

“As a holistic dentist,” says Dr. Hernandez, “I talk to my implant patients about this topic on a regular basis. I do not use metallic implants for that very reason.” He elaborates, “The body conducts electricity, and in the mouth, titanium implants can not only conduct electricity causing vibrations in the jaw and head, but also many patients may have allergic reactions to metals.”

 

Dr Hernandez explains why people prefer to work with a holistic dentist, writing, “In my experience, people who prefer going to holistic dentists naturally favor mercury-free and metal-free dental procedures. Many don’t want metals and metal alloys in their mouth because of the potential for toxins, corrosion and the harmful effects they have on the immune system.”

 

According to Dr. Hernandez, “Titanium or metal implants can create what is called ‘oral galvanism’ or ‘the battery effect’ in the mouth. Just think about any kind of battery from the one in your car to those used in your TV’s remote control. When you have metal in the mouth you are in effect turning your mouth into a battery.”

The Mouth Is The Perfect Environment For Conducting Electricity

If you have children, you know how important it was when they were little to keep them away from electrical outlets and cords. Kids love putting things in their mouths. That’s how toddlers explore their new world. And with so many digital devices in our world, all of which require chargers, there are even more ways for a child to get into trouble with electricity. The mouth is the perfect moist environment for conducting electricity.

 

Not-So-Good Vibrations And Allergic Reactions

As a holistic dentist, I talk to my implant patients about this topic on a regular basis. I do not use metallic implants for that very reason. The body conducts electricity, and in the mouth, titanium implants can not only conduct electricity causing vibrations in the jaw and head, but also many patients may have allergic reactions to metals.

 

Choosing A Holistic Dentist 

In my experience, people who prefer going to holistic dentists naturally favor mercury-free and metal-free dental procedures. Many don’t want metals and metal alloys in their mouth because of the potential for toxins, corrosion and the harmful effects they have on the immune system.

 

Battery Mouth

Titanium or metal implants can create what is called ‘oral galvanism’ or ‘the battery effect’ in the mouth. Just think about any kind of battery from the one in your car to those used in your TV’s remote control. When you have metal in the mouth you are in effect turning your mouth into a battery.

 

Corrosion

Have you ever seen an old battery left in a flashlight for years? You open the battery compartment of the flashlight and see stuff oozing out of the battery. Well, the action of electrical currents in the mouth increases the rate at which metal implants are corroded. The ions that are released react with the organs of the body, which can lead to increased sensitivity, an inclination toward inflammation and potentially autoimmune disorders. That’s called corrosion in the body or ‘oral galvanism’ as I mentioned above. Through oral galvanism, titanium implants release metal ions into the mouth and jawbone constantly. This chronic exposure may likely trigger inflammation along with allergies and autoimmune disease in susceptible individuals and slowly weaken the immune system in healthy adults.

 

Metal-Free Philosophy

Zirconium implants are the implants of choice for anyone who prefers a metal-free mouth. Whether you’re concerned about potential complications presented by having metals in the mouth or if you are simply looking for a more natural result, ceramic dental implants are a great alternative to titanium dental implants. Holistic dentists tend to offer ceramic dental implants to their patients precisely because they support a metal-free philosophy. As I mentioned earlier, this is the type of implant I use in my practice because bones and gums integrate better with zirconium. In addition, ceramic implants have a proven ability to resist plaque build-up, making it easier for patients to care for their implant teeth and sustain good oral hygiene.

 

If you need an implant and would like a consultation regarding metal-free implants, please call our office today.

Holistic Dentistry And The Use Of Non-Metallic Dental Implants

The mouth is the gateway to every organ in the body and is interconnected to overall health. This makes oral health of primary importance.

As a holistic dentist, my focus is on helping my patients achieve and maintain exceptional oral health. Through the use of biocompatible, non-toxic restorative materials, I help my patients eliminate infections and achieve optimal oral health as well as restore healthy structural relationships between the jaw, head and neck.

A major component of my practice is dental implantology. Tooth loss occurs for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is due to injuries, other times to a history of periodontal and other diseases. Implants are integral to the overall health of the mouth. To that end I use non-metallic ceramic dental implants made by Z-Systems.

Some people have allergic reactions to metals and with non-metallic implants, any allergic reaction is avoided, while the end result is absolutely beautiful. Z-Systems manufactures its unique Zirkolith® implants, which allow for extremely low adhesion of bacterial plaque. As you may know, plaque is the main cause of gum disease and one of the main reasons for tooth loss. Untreated periodontitis and also increase the risks during pregnancy as well as the risk of heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.

The Zirkolith implants I use in my practice can be ground like natural teeth without problems and do not require complex accessories. Metal conducts electricity and can cause uncomfortable vibrations in the jaw. However, through the use of non-metallic Z-System implants complete metal-free restoration of your smile and the health of your mouth can be achieved.

 

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of SmileCreator Of Naples And Best-selling Co-author Shares Information From The Mayo Clinic About Importance Of Oral 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, suggests making 2020 the decade devoted to excellent dental health and turns to the Mayo Clinic to show readers that the number one rated hospital in the nation ranks dental health of major importance to overall health.

Naples, FL, January 22, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “From The Mayo Clinic To Your Mouth To The Healthiest Decade Yet.” Dr. Hernandez turns to the highly respected clinic to show readers how important oral health is to overall health.

Dr. Hernandez writes, “This new decade that we are just stepping into could be devoted to seeing more clearly.” He continues, “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.” As Dr. Hernandez points out, “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.”

Dr. Hernandez suggests, “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.

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of Smilecreator Of Naples Talks About The Millions Of Americans Who Fear Going To The Dentist.

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, writes about the frightening and very possibly deadly results that can result from having a phobia of going to the dentist.

 

Naples, FL, October 31, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “A Fear Of Going To The Dentist Can Lead To Many Frightening Diseases,” in which Dr. Hernandez reveals the deadly and scary diseases that are associated with periodontal disease.

 

Dr. Hernandez states, “October is the month when Americans look forward to the very last day of the month. On this day children of every age (read adults) love to dress up as scary ghosts, goblins and witches among other less frightening creatures. The children go from door to door ‘trick-or-treating’ gathering up sacks full of candy.”

 

Dr. Hernandez writes, “Ah, you might think that Halloween is a dentists dream come true. Well, for some of us this is truly a nightmare.” He continues elaborating, “While we human will probably never completely kick our addiction to sugar, I’ll tell you one thing that I find more frightening than Halloween. It is the fact that between 30 and 40 million people in this country, while they love to be spooked in so many other ways, will avoid going to the dentist out of fear.”

 

“Fear of going to the dentist,” says Dr. Hernandez, “can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease. And here’s the most frightening fact of all.  The correlations between a multitude of other diseases and periodontal disease are getting stronger. And even though a cause-and-effect relationship has not yet been proven, research has indicated that periodontal disease increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, osteoporosis, respiratory diseases and a variety of cancers. Periodontal disease can also exacerbate existing heart conditions. “

 

According to Dr. Hernandez, “In this case, fear can be a real killer. Because, if you don’t regularly see the dentist, health problems, such as hypertension, diabetes, oral cancers, kidney failure and heart disease may not be discovered until they’re in a more advanced stage.” He adds, “Yes, today dentists are more likely to discover the individual’s likelihood of getting those diseases base on the bacteria in the mouth and whether or not one has periodontal disease.”

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, September 30, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Something To Chew On Requires Something To Chew With.”  Dr. Hernandez delves into how oral health is an indicator of other diseases and how some dentists are helping their patients avoid serious health conditions.

 

Dr. Hernandez writes, “Teeth and good oral hygiene are more integral to overall health than most people know.” He continues adding, “We smile easily and eat effortlessly when teeth are healthy and bright. However, if for some reason oral health deteriorates, if not attended to swiftly, the loss of teeth may make it difficult to chew and impossible to smile without embarrassment.” He emphasizes, “In addition, poor oral health is an indicator of other more serious underlying health problems”.

 

According to Dr. Hernandez, “One important thing most people don’t yet know is that the mouth is where most systemic diseases make their first appearance.” He elaborates, “According to the Academy of General Dentistry, more than 90% of all systemic diseases produce oral signs and symptoms. In fact, the accuracy of saliva testing is gaining ground. In the future, saliva testing may replace blood testing as a means of diagnosing and monitoring diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, cirrhosis of the liver, heart disease, HIV and many other infectious diseases.”

How Holistic & Biological Dentistry Helps Your Whole Body

Most people start going to the dentist when they are children. Parents take their kids for regular checkups. Cavities get filled. It is determined whether or not a trip to the orthodontist is in order. Taking care of the teeth and gums is a habit most people continue throughout their lives. However there are some people who are so terrified of the dentist they fail to go to the dentist for many years until some painful problem comes up and they are forced to go.

Gum Disease Could Be Indicator Of More Serious Conditions

Even for those who go regularly to the dentist, for cleanings, they are often told that their teeth are not as clean as they should be or that their gums are still bleeding and that they need to be doing better with their home oral hygiene. Eventually, they may be told they have periodontal disease due to incorrect or inadequate dental hygiene. The fact is maybe some people don’t do a great job with their dental hygiene. However, there may be other underlying factors that contribute to periodontal disease. In many cases, it could be a heart condition, diabetes or an imminent stroke that is causing gum disease.

Connection Between Oral Health And Overall Health Not Commonly Understood

In my holistic dental practice, I employ and follow the Bale/Doneen Method and other biological services and techniques to incorporate the study of the link between and prevention of heart disease, diabetes, strokes and gum disease. Many silent conditions in the mouth, such as old root canals have been proven to contribute to elevated chances of having a severe stroke or heart disease. Additionally, cardiovascular incidents are preventable with proper care and attention to these underlying culprits, diet and other forms of cleaner living.

A holistic dental approach will look at other body systems in search for answers as to why specific breakdowns may be happening. For example; holistic dentists will look at metal toxicity, ph levels in saliva and use DNA testing for find ways to strengthen the body to counteract these offenses.

Biologic and holistic approaches to dentistry are not all that different from traditional approaches except we take a stricter approach to using materials that do not react negatively with the body, saliva and or surrounding tissues. When someone is suffering with ongoing periodontal disease and other body malfunctions, using a holistic dental approach may help get closer to the body’s favorable responses in healing.

Some of the services holistic & biologic dentist use are:

  • Bale/Doneen Method
  • Plasma Rich Growth Factor Technology (PRGF)
  • Oral DNA testing
  • Monitoring A1C & Ph testing
  • Safe amalgam removal
  • Ozone therapies and applications
  • Ph monitoring and modifications
  • Nutritional alkaline food modifications
  • Supplementation with activated charcoal, Vitamin D3, and others
  • Oil pulling
  • Natural toothpastes and rinses
  • Handling biotoxins and mold alleviation
  • & many other more natural approaches…

Time To Consider A Holistic Dentist

 

If you’ve been dealing with chronic gum disease you owe it to yourself to schedule a visit to your nearest holistic dentist. Or, you may want to take a trip to visit one if there isn’t one nearby. It could not only change the health of your mouth but also of your entire body.
