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, 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/

Oral Health Can Decline Significantly When Teeth Are Not Removed Properly

Most of us are born with 20 primary or baby teeth and we typically grow into adults with 32 permanent teeth. Some people may lose a tooth or two for some reason during the lifetime journey. The major reasons why teeth are lost is due to trauma and disease. People fall, get into accidents, and some injure themselves playing sports. Sometimes periodontal gum disease causes tooth loss, as can dental decay.  When teeth have to be removed due to periodontal disease or decay, how the removal process is handled will determine the remaining foundation of health well into the future.

For example; if a tooth is removed using excessive force or aggressive procedures, the surrounding bone will be damaged and suffer. Very often this results in requiring a bone graft procedure. Bone grafting is the reconstruction of bone and the architecture of the bony structure. However, a bone graft is not always required when teeth are lost or removed.

After a tooth is lost, be it to accident or disease, the way the area is cleaned and treated is equally important to the overall long-term health of the mouth. Especially in the case of a tooth lost to gum disease, after the tooth is removed, the bony walls are still intact and will need to be cleansed of all debris, infected materials and remaining periodontal ligaments. This cleansing process must be done carefully and thoroughly by hand using a variety of instruments. It’s also important to finish up with antibiotics and rinses used to further wash out this tissue and cleanse the bony surface adequately.

If the removal and the important cleansing process is not completed properly, then a cavitation can form. A cavitation is a hole in the bone that has not healed in properly. It is an area of dead bone which will become infected and fester. This creates an unhealthy environment and further adds to the declining health of the mouth, teeth and gums.

If you’ve recently lost a tooth or need to have one removed, it’s important that it be done by a dental professional experienced in proper removal and the very important follow-up cleansing procedure. Your long-term oral health depends on how this procedure is done.

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.

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.

 

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).

Naples, FL, January 17, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has developed his own dental implant method SmileinOne™, which he has been employing for over 20 years and has proven to be to be effective and predictable in his hands.

According to Dr. Hernandez, his patients are routinely asking for fast and effective results. Patients are all wanting this NOW phenomenon and it is here to stay. Dr. Hernandez shares, “as a dental implant practitioner for many years, I have seen this modality come and go a couple of times. But I also feel that currently it really is here to stay. Now as these patients come and ask for these NOW teeth, they only answer I give them is the method that I developed and that I have seen work consistently over the last 20 years, SmileinOne™.”

Hernandez points out that while there are many names to fast dental implants, his SmileinOne™ method differs the rest. “The patients have the options of how to get it done. What materials they want and the shape, color, size… just perfect customizing abilities for those that are the type that wants their own fingerprint in the jar.

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.”

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of Smilecreator Of Naples Shares An Article Posted By Bale-Doneen In Honor Of National Dental Hygiene Month.

 

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 the Halloween celebration has typically been a boon to dentists and a great time to begin instilling good oral hygiene practices into young children.

 

Naples, FL, September **, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “An Oral Health Guide In Anticipation Of Halloween,” in which Dr. Hernandez talks about why he shares an article from baledoneen.com.

 

Dr. Hernandez writs, “As we move further away from summer and deeper into the fall season, thoughts of Halloween start to play in the minds of children and parents across the country.” He continues, “As the first celebration of the fall season Halloween is one that has historically been detrimental to oral health and fundamental to keeping many dentists in business! So much sugar consumed in such a short period of time. Dentists can pretty much count on emergency appointments with children who have tooth aches in the weeks after Halloween.”

 

“As a dentist who employs and works with the Bale-Doneen method,” says Dr. Hernandez, “I want to share what they have posted on their website in honor of National Dental Hygiene Month.” He further explains, “Teaching children to keep their mouth clean is an important lesson to establish early. To that end and to the hopeful avoidance of the scary things that can happen when one doesn’t tend to their oral hygiene, I am posting an article from baledoneen.com in its entirety.”

 

The title of the baledoneen.com article is “4 Scary Reasons to Take Your Dental Health Seriously” in the article it is said that, “October is National Dental Hygiene Month, which honors the work of a potentially lifesaving member of your heart-attack-and-stroke prevention team: your dental provider.” The article continues, “Recent research links poor oral health to increased risk for many deadly disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and cardiovascular disease (CVD), the leading killer of Americans.”

What’s Going On In Your Mouth Affects Your Whole Body

We are living in an age where science and technology offer us unprecedented access to information. Our human curiosity has led us to delve into the science of the human body in search of the most advanced methods to preserve our health. Over time it has been discovered that a healthy diet and exercise is a tried and true method toward overall good health. However, what exactly is a ‘healthy diet’?

There are diets that propose they are the ‘answer’ to all health problems that are diametrically opposite each other. There’s the high-protein diet, the South Beach Diet, the Mediterranean Diet, the Paleo Diet, the fat diet. There are vegetarians and vegans and bone broth enthusiasts, there are those who restrict their flesh eating to fish and call themselves pescatarians. And there are those who only breathe and feel that they get all the nourishment necessary from the air that they breathe. See what I mean? A “healthy diet” means different things to different people.

Holistic Dentistry

As a Holistic Dentist, I may suggest a change of diet that you may or may not choose to follow. But of this I can assure you that whatever goes into your mouth can affect your entire body. In fact, in my dental practice 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. Cardio vascular incidents are preventable with proper care and attention to these underlying culprits.

 

Holistic Dentistry is nothing more than providing the proper conditions for the body to help heal itself better and faster. Holistic dentistry’s focus includes not introducing unnecessary chemicals or substances into the body that may harm tissues, organs or our own ability to heal.

The true differences between holistic dentistry and traditional dentistry is philosophical: traditional dentistry is the practice of treating the symptoms in the teeth and gums and attempting to prevent such problems from reoccurring. Holistic dentistry is the practice of treating the underlying problems that cause symptoms in the mouth, attempting to eliminate those problems (and, hence, preventing the symptoms from reoccurring) while ensuring the work done in the mouth does not have an adverse effect on your overall health.

 

Modern Medical Advances Support Holistic Approach To Health

Modern medical advances have given us the ability to test saliva and conduct DNA analysis to evaluate the connection between periodontal disease, heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Both of these conditions have been proven to be quite sickening to the body. If we can identify these conditions early, they can be treated and probably reversed with proper care. Holistic dentists work in cohesion many times with other practitioners. For example, we work closely with MDs like functional medicine providers. We also work very closely with Pulmonologists, ENTs and cardiologists.

The ability of the body to heal itself more naturally is what holistic dentistry is about. We provide dental care considering the entire body and how it is a balanced part of the entirety of the human body. We work with our patients’ cardiovascular and other medical teams as well. If you’ve been looking for a holistic approach to dentistry, give us a call.

 

 

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of Smilecreator Of Naples And Best-selling Co-author Suggests Dentists Are Important To Cardiovascular Health Of Their Patients.

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 that mouth health is scientifically proven to be a contributing factor to heart disease and indicates that dentists have an important role in their patients’ cardiovascular health.

 

Naples, FL, July 31, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Your Dentist Should Be Part Of Your Cardiovascular Health Team,” in which Dr. Hernandez talks about the important role dentistry plays in heart health.

Dr. Hernandez writes, “Have you ever heard the expression that, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”?” He continues adding, “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.”

According to Dr. Hernandez, “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,” he says, adding, “I’m talking specifically about oral health and the kind of bacteria that is dominant in the mouth.”
