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 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!

 

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 Urges Readers To Consider The Heart Health Of All The Women They Love.

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 how women are more likely to die from heart disease without even knowing that they have it.

Naples, FL, May 31, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “Take This To Heart: Most Women Who Die Of Heart Disease Didn’t Know They Had It.” Dr. Hernandez acknowledges that women tend to put the health and well-being of others above their own.

As Dr. Hernandez points out, “Historically, heart disease has been recognized as the number one cause of death in men. However,” he adds, “over the years, the myth that cardiovascular disease (CVD) is mainly a problem for men has been reviewed, revised and revamped.”

“The fact is,” writes Dr. Hernandez, “that CVD is the leading killer of both men and women, and actually claiming more female lives than all forms of cancer combined.” He continues, “Even more disconcerting is the fact the “64% of women who die suddenly from a heart attack were previously unaware that they had cardiovascular disease.” And, based on large studies published earlier this year, women are up to three times more likely to die after a heart attack than men are largely due to unequal care and treatment.”

http://theheartattackandstrokepreventioncenter.com/wpcontent/uploads/2018/08/v2_dramy_august.pdf):

 Dr. Hernandez goes so far as to propose that May “could become Women’s Heart Health Month.” He states, “So, even though American Heart Month, which happened in February was overshadowed by a global pandemic, as was Mother’s Day, I would like to suggest turning your attention to heart health – your own or that of your mother and the other women who play important roles in your life. It could be a sister, an aunt or a good friend.” He goes on to add 10 heart health tips for women devised by Dr. Amy Doneen, co-founder of the BaleDoneen Method.

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.”

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.

The Key To Health Is In Your Mouth

We are all very familiar with the stereotypical scenario depicting a visit to the doctor. The doctor walks in, greets the patient, then says, “Open your mouth and say, ‘Ahhh.’” He or she then depresses the tongue with what looks like a wide popsicle stick and looks around inside the mouth. Most people are unaware of what the doctor is looking for.

Generally, the doctor would be looking to see if there is anything swollen. And, they are looking at the tongue for a variety of signs that could indicate any number of health issues that might be brewing.

The mouth is the primary gateway to the entire body. Everything that goes into the mouth makes its way through the body and much of what goes into the mouth ends up either adding to the health or the illness of the body and its organs. And, that health or illness is reflected in the mouth.

Recent research has discovered that the mouth and oral health is the most immediate and accurate reflection of overall health. In fact, I say this as a dentist and oral surgeon who found out the truth of this statement first hand.

I was fortunate enough to have had a heart attack which led me to a life-saving, eye-opening approach to overall health which I now employ in my dental practice. It is called the BaleDoneen Method of heart attack, stroke and diabetes prevention. Yes, prevention.

Today, the BaleDoneen method is used by a growing number of dental as well as medical providers. By testing the bacteria in the mouth, it can be determined if you are at high risk for heart disease, stroke and/or diabetes. When you discover the critical importance of oral health in the prevention of the three diseases mentioned above, you will want to make sure your dentist is part of your cardiology team.

You can find out more by visiting their website at www.baledoneen.com. In addition, I’ll be revealing more about my personal experience with the method in my upcoming monthly blogs and articles. Stay tuned for health.
