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, elaborates on the importance of replacing toothbrushes regularly.

Naples, FL, February 26, 2021: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “Brush Up On The Important Reasons To Change Your Toothbrush Regularly,” in which Dr. Hernandez dispels any idea that replacing toothbrushes regularly is merely a marketing ploy.

Dr. Hernandez writes, “While the recommendation is to change your toothbrush at least every three months, many people think that is merely a marketing technique to sell more toothbrushes.” He emphatically states, “Not so. There are multiple important health reasons why dental professionals recommend changing your toothbrush every three months.”

According to Dr. Hernandez, “At the top of the list of reasons to change your toothbrush regularly is the human mouth is teeming with bacteria. All kinds of bacteria – good, bad and really ugly!” He continues, “When you brush your teeth, some of those bacteria and plaque, cling to and begin to live in and on the bristles of your toothbrush. The longer you use the toothbrush, the more bacteria builds up.” 

“Secondly,” says Dr. Hernandez, “the bristles get worn out over time. If you’re brushing two or more times a day, that can produce a lot of wear and tear on your toothbrush. And that’s especially true if you tend to apply lots of pressure when you brush.” As Dr. Hernandez points out, “Worn out bristles can be abrasive on your gums and can lead to inflammation and premature gum recession. A fresh new brush keeps your teeth cleaner and your gums healthy.”

Brush Up On The Important Reasons To Change Your Toothbrush Regularly

While the recommendation is to change your toothbrush at least every three months, many people think that is merely a marketing technique to sell more toothbrushes. Not so. There are multiple important health reasons why dental professionals recommend changing your toothbrush every three months.

Bacteria, Bacteria, Bacteria

At the top of the list of reasons to change your toothbrush regularly is the human mouth is teeming with bacteria. All kinds of bacteria – good, bad, and really ugly! When you brush your teeth, some of those bacteria and plaque, cling to and begin to live in and on the bristles of your toothbrush. The longer you use the toothbrush, the more bacteria builds up.

Frequency Of Use Means Your Toothbrush Gets Worn Out

Secondly, the bristles get worn out over time. If you’re brushing two or more times a day, that can produce a lot of wear and tear on your toothbrush. And that’s especially true if you tend to apply lots of pressure when you brush. Worn-out bristles can be abrasive on your gums and can lead to inflammation and premature gum recession. A fresh new brush keeps your teeth cleaner and your gums healthy. And if you are someone who brushes with lots of pressure you may notice the bristles on your toothbrush splaying out and pointing every which way but the right direction sooner than three months. By all means, change your toothbrush before the three-month time period if you do apply lots of pressure.

You Had A Cold, A Flu Or Other Viral Infection 

Any time you’ve been sick, it’s very important to replace your toothbrush. It’s very easy to reinfect yourself by using the same toothbrush you used while you were sick. And if you have other family members whose toothbrushes are near yours, cross-contamination is highly probable. You should change all the family toothbrushes after anyone in the family has been sick. Get rid of those bacteria-infected brushes and start fresh.

 

Keep It Clean

Of course, you want to keep your toothbrush as clean as possible during the three-month use period. But that only requires a good rinse after use, then letting it air dry. I’ve had patients tell me they use cleaning agents if they drop their brush or after they’ve been sick. That is not a good idea. Cleaning agents can cause more harm than good. Likewise, I’ve had patients tell me they try to sterilize their toothbrushes by boiling them in water, putting them in the microwave oven, or washing them in the dishwater. Again, not a good idea. Excessive heat can warp the bristles making them more damaging to your gums and less effective at cleaning your teeth.

 

 

Electric Versus Manual Toothbrush

This is one of those questions that I can only answer with, “It depends.” If you’ve always used a manual and your oral health is good, keep up the good work. If you find it difficult to reach certain areas of your mouth with a manual toothbrush, you might find it easier with an electric toothbrush. The choice is really a personal one. And since neither manual toothbrushes nor electric toothbrushes are created equal, you might want to discuss which one your dentist recommends based on your oral health.

I hope you found this brush-up session helpful. Keep brushing, flossing, rinsing, and smiling.

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of SmileCreator Of Naples And Best-selling Co-author Talk About The Important Role Vitamin D Plays In Oral Health And Immunity.

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, 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.”

Getting A Daily Dose Of Good Vitamin D Could Prevent COVID-19

It does not come as a surprise to me that vitamin D deficiency has recently been discovered to be a primary risk factor for severe COVID-19 infection and death. I have been talking about and educating my patients about the importance of good vitamin D supplements – not the cheapest ones, but the real ones – for many years.

Research has shown that maintaining adequate amounts of vitamin D may protect you from developing a multitude of ills including multiple sclerosis and various forms of cancers including ovarian, breast and prostate. https://www.insider.com/benefits-of-sunlight  And now the news about possibly preventing COVID-19 is exciting and potentially lifesaving for so many.

According to a 2011 study, 41.6% of adults in the US are vitamin D deficient. This number goes up to 69.2% in Hispanics and 82.1% in African Americans. Common risk factors for vitamin D deficiency include, being elderly, being overweight or obese and having dark skin.

This makes sense when you look at the death rates from COVID. The Latino and African American populations have been hard hit by COVID-19, as have the elderly and those compromised due to obesity.

 

Not A Cure – A Preventative

While scientists around the world are scrambling to create a vaccine to cure COVID-19, the rest of us can be proactive and do something that can help us prevent becoming the next victim.  For those of us who live in the sunshine state and those who live in the sunbelt, we have the greatest source of the best vitamin D at our disposal on a daily basis. However, we also know too much exposure to the sun is not healthy.

I think about the elderly who live in nursing homes who are not exposed to sunshine at all. It would be wonderful to be able to up their vitamin D intake via a good supplement and help strengthen them. Vitamin D boosts overall immune function by modulating innate and adaptive immune responses, reduces respiratory distress and improves overall lung function, helping to produce surfactants in the lungs that aid in fluid clearance.

 

Vitamin D Functions Like A Hormone

Another interesting bit of information about vitamin D is that unlike other vitamins, vitamin D functions like a hormone, and every single cell in your body has a receptor for it. Your body makes vitamin D from cholesterol when your skin is exposed to sunlight. A total of 15 minutes of sunshine a day is plenty. Though people with darker skin may need a little more exposure. If you cannot out into the sun, a good supplement can do the trick.

 

Spread The Word

 Getting the word out about the lifesaving benefits of vitamin D supplementation — especially to the African American and Latino communities and the elderly in nursing homes — could have a significant impact on future hospitalization and death rates from COVID-19. If you have a loved one in a nursing home, taking the time to talk to the medical management about vitamin D testing and supplementation could also make a big difference in the general health of all the residents, as vitamin D is something that can strengthen your immune system in a matter of a few weeks and has many health benefits besides lowering your risk of a viral illness.

Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of SmileCreator Of Naples And Best-selling Co-author Writes About The Growing Understanding Of Gum Disease As An Indicator Of Heart Disease Risk.

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/

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 encourages readers to maintain excellent oral health throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and to understand how important oral health is to heart health.

 Naples, FL, September 25, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Make Sure You Have Heart-Healthy Gums.” Dr. Hernandez educates readers to the importance of oral health particularly during stressful times. 

Dr. Hernandez states, “Your gums can indicate whether you are prone to heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s Disease. Yes,” he adds, “your gums.” He elaborates, “Healthy gums don’t always, but often do indicate health within the body organs. If they are free of inflammation, chances are your arteries are too.”

A Dr. Hernandez points out, “The mouth is the gateway to the entire body. It has been shown time and time again that poor dental health and gum disease (aka periodontitis) is associated with an increased risk of developing heart disease.” Dr. Hernandez emphasizes, “If you’ve already had heart surgery to and have artificial heart valves, you want to make sure you maintain excellent oral health.”

According to Dr. Hernandez, “Most people don’t think about oral health having any connection to other diseases. I hope that this changes,” he says, adding, “and I am doing everything I can to help educate my patients and those who follow my blogs and articles to understand how important oral health is to heart health and overall health.”

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!

 

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 Writes About The Importance Of Proper Cleaning After Tooth Removal.

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, explains the important process of cleaning the area where a tooth has been lost or removed and how the improper process can lead to rapid decline in oral health.

Naples, FL, June 19, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Oral Health Can Decline Significantly When Teeth Are Not Removed Properly.” Dr. Hernandez talks about the importance of proper tooth removal and the equally important cleaning process afterwards.

Dr. Hernandez informs his readers that, “Most of us are born with 20 primary or baby teeth and we typically grow into adults with 32 permanent teeth.” He continues, “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.” He elaborates, “People fall, get into accidents, and some injure themselves playing sports. Sometimes periodontal gum disease causes tooth loss, as can dental decay.”

According to Dr. Hernandez, “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.” By way of example he adds, “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.”

“After a tooth is lost,” says Dr. Hernandez, “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.”

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.
