In my work as a dentist, with a specialty in implantology, I have experienced more fulfillment in my chosen profession than I could have ever imagined. Much of that fulfillment comes when I help restore a patient’s smile through the use of implants. What I have learned over the years, is that, yes, their smile is restored. But more importantly, their confidence and joy in living is restored.
I have patients who, when they find me, have not been out of their homes in years because they have lost many or most of their teeth. They cannot chew real food and they are often in pain due to infections. Some people end up this way due to fear of dentists. I consider these patients some of the most courageous people I’ve ever met. It takes courage, after hiding and being in pain for a long time to muster the energy and wherewithal to take action to change such depressing circumstances. And to overcome their fear of dentists.
Implants are the next best thing to real teeth. They look, feel and function like your natural teeth, so you can chew all foods and you can be confident in your smile. Of course, there are other things that can damage a smile. Accidents can leave teeth broken. Sports are notorious for knocking teeth out or breaking them.
Restoring my patients love of life by giving them the ability to express their joy with a big bright smile, is one of the greatest joys of my chosen profession. If you’ve been looking for a way to break out of the isolation that may have been going on for far too long, give my office a call and let’s restore your smile and your confidence and your joy in living.
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.

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.
