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.”

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, informs his readers about a very specific enzyme present in the gums that is specifically becoming recognized as a very strong indicator of a high risk of heart disease.

Naples, FL, November 16, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Your Gums And Your Heart… The Link Is Intensifying!” Dr. Hernandez talks about the link between one enzyme found in the oral cavity that is becoming recognized as an indicator of heart disease. 

Dr. Hernandez writes, “The aging population is aware of heart disease and attribute this to getting older. But,” he asks, “is it really part of the aging process?” He thinks not, saying, “Studies show that age and heart disease are not related and actually is improved with science.” He goes on to add, “The medical research establishment is very busy at work finding ways to keep us alive longer and healthier.”

As Dr. Hernandez points out, “Researchers are finding new markers to identify risk of coronary artery disease early on and when monitored properly can help avoid these. One of these receiving much attention is “Myeloperoxidase” (MPO).” According to Dr. Hernandez, “This is a well-known enzyme found in the blood and used as a marker for inflammation.” He suggests readers, “Follow this link for a very enlightening research article on this exciting enzyme and what it is telling us about our heart future. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/mi/2008/135625/

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.”

Stay Calm And Keep Your Mouth Healthy

Don’t let Covid-19 disrupt your healthy dental care routine. While all dental offices were shut down for a couple of months, our doors are now open. 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.

 

The Unknown Causes Stress

If you’ve had to postpone a regular cleaning due to the pandemic, 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. Do not slack on your home oral health care. Be more diligent than ever.

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.

 

Take Care Of Dental Emergencies Immediately 

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.

 

Explore Holistic Dental Care

If you’ve never had the experience of working with a biological or holistic dental professional and are looking for a new dentist, we would be happy to welcome you. We follow the BaleDoneen Method which incorporates 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.

A holistic approach will look at other body systems in search for answers as to why the breakdown may be happening. For example as a holistic dentist we will look at metal toxicity, Ph levels in saliva, and we use DNA testing to find ways to strengthen the body to counteract these offenses.

Holistic Dentistry is nothing more than providing the proper conditions for the body to help heal itself better and faster. Holistic dentistry’s focus is to not introduce unnecessary chemicals or substances into the body that may harm tissues, organs or interfere in any way with the body’s natural ability to heal.

 

Tips To Keep Your Mouth Clean

If you simply can’t get to the dentist for your routing cleaning or check-up, at least be diligent in your oral home care. Follow these tips to make sure you keep your mouth healthy and clean until you can get to your dental professional.

Change your toothbrush head every 3 months or more frequently if you’ve been sick.

Brush your teeth at least twice daily.

Floss after every meal.

Eliminate sugar or at least keep sugary foods to a bare minimum

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 Writes About The Importance Of Vitamin D In Oral 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, writes about Vitamin D, the importance it plays in oral health and includes how to get vitamin D from the sun, dietary and supplemental sources.

 

Naples, FL, March 31, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “The Role Vitamin D Plays In Your Dental Health,” in which Dr. Hernandez emphasizes how integral this single vitamin is to oral health.

 

As Dr. Hernandez points out, “All people who reside in Florida have a fairly constant source of Vitamin D: the wonderful sunshine!” He continues adding, “If you spend as few as 15 minutes in the sun each day, perhaps on an early morning or evening walk, just as the sun is coming up or going down, you can fulfill your daily requirement of this vitamin that is so integral to bone and dental health.” He adds, “And, a diet rich in seafood, which is also abundant in Florida, is another way to keep your Vitamin D requirements fulfilled.”

 

“Vitamin D is essential in helping the body absorb calcium,” says Dr. Hernandez. He continues adding, “Of course there are people around the world who don’t love being out in the sun. Fortunately there are dietary sources for getting Vitamin D, which include leafy greens, fatty fish like salmon and tuna, and foods that are fortified with Vitamin D. And, of course, there are vitamin supplements that can be taken.”

 

Dr. Hernandez states, “We want to help you combat the Coronavirus fears. During the month of March, all new patients who visit us for their exam cleaning and Oral DNA check, will receive a FREE 30-day supply of our branded Vitamin D3 supplement to boost your health and immune system.*s”

 

Continuing to elaborate on Vitamin D, Dr. Hernandez writes, “This vitamin deficiency typically shows up as osteoporosis as well as periodontal disease and has a multitude of symptoms. As a dentist, I have seen the damaging results of Vitamin D deficiency up close.” According to Dr. Hernandez, “In the dental profession, it is well known that Vitamin D deficiency can increase the risk of oral infections and periodontal disease. Vitamin D is important in the body’s immune response and it has been known to suppress the destructive effects of chronic periodontitis.” He elaborates, “What this means is that if one patient has periodontitis and has adequate levels of vitamin D, the disease will not be as damaging as it would be in a patient that is chronically deficient in the vitamin.”

The Role Vitamin D Plays In Your Dental Health

All people who reside in Florida have a fairly constant source of Vitamin D: the wonderful sunshine! If you spend as few as 15 minutes in the sun each day, perhaps on an early morning or evening walk, just as the sun is coming up or going down, you can fulfill your daily requirement of this vitamin that is so integral to bone and dental health. And, a diet rich in seafood, which is also abundant in Florida, is another way to keep your Vitamin D requirements fulfilled.

 

Food And Supplements Provide Vitamin D 

Vitamin D is essential in helping the body absorb calcium. Of course there are people around the world who don’t love being out in the sun. Fortunately there are dietary sources for getting Vitamin D, which include leafy greens, fatty fish like salmon and tuna, and foods that are fortified with Vitamin D. And, of course, there are vitamin supplements that can be taken.

 

Free Vitamin D For New Patients

We want to help you combat the Coronavirus fears. During the month of April*, all new patients who visit us for their exam cleaning and Oral DNA check will receive a FREE 30-day supply of our branded Vitamin D3 supplement to boost your health and immune system.*

 

Oral DNA Testing Reveals

In my dental practice, I encourage all of my patients to have an Oral DNA test. This test provides an analysis that shows a patient’s likelihood of developing periodontal disease as well as identifying whether there is an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke and birth complications.

 

Periodontal Disease Is Often A Result of Vitamin D Deficiency

This vitamin deficiency typically shows up as osteoporosis as well as periodontal disease and has a multitude of symptoms. As a dentist, I have seen the damaging results of Vitamin D deficiency up close. In the dental profession, it is well known that Vitamin D deficiency can increase the risk of oral infections and periodontal disease. Vitamin D is important in the body’s immune response and it has been known to suppress the destructive effects of chronic periodontitis.  What this means is that if one patient has periodontitis and has adequate levels of vitamin D, the disease will not be as damaging as it would be in a patient that is chronically deficient in the vitamin.

 

Dental Implants Depend On New Bone Formation

If you’ve ever had a poor response to or recovery from dental surgery, it could be a result of vitamin D deficiency. Implants depend on new bone formation and a vitamin D deficiency can interfere with bone metabolism. This can result in implants that don’t “take.” They remain loose because new bone cannot form due to the lack of Vitamin D, which as I stated early aids in the body’s absorption of calcium.

 

It’s Time For Spring Cleaning

It’s time for spring cleaning. Why not include a comprehensive oral exam that includes an Oral DNA screening? Give my office a call. We’ll get you on the schedule for March, and will have a free bottle of my Vitamin D3 supplements for you to make sure you are not deficient in this important vitamin.

 

*Must ask for the Vitamin D3 special when calling to make your appointment.

 

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.

 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, tells readers about the importance of dental implants to maintaining oral health after tooth loss and specifically writes about the biocompatible ceramic implants he uses.

 

Naples, FL, February 17, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, Holistic Dentistry And The Use Of Non-Metallic Dental Implants. Dr. Hernandez espouses the use of ceramic dental implants for several reasons.

 

As Dr. Hernandez points out, “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,” says Dr. Hernandez, “my focus is on helping my patients achieve and maintain exceptional oral health.” He continues, “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.”

 

Dr. Hernandez states, “A major component of my practice is dental implantology.” According to Dr. Hernandez, “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.” He affirms, “To that end I use non-metallic ceramic dental implants made by Z-Systems.”
