“The very first step you can take to prevent disease is to learn what causes it. Learn what mouth bacteria can really do. Realize that even though dental disease is occurring at a microscopic level, much of it can be prevented by taking only a few minutes a day to hit the agents of disease where it will hurt them. You must learn how diet influences breakdown, and what foods are most destructive.” “I am going to try to cover everything you’ve wanted to know about your mouth, your smile, bad breath, cavities, gum disease, children’s dentistry, tooth movement, restorations, replacements, and more. If you are a younger or middle-aged person, with all or most of your teeth, and take the time to learn what is in this book, you may save between $15,000 and $50,000 in the course of your lifetime. If you are a senior, this book will help you make the best choices for your needed dental care.” “Let’s start on this self-help adventure now. I truly want to help you prevent disease, eliminate bad breath, and enjoy your smile and your chewing comfort.” Howard Marshall, D.D.S.

This guide to good dental health provides information consumers need to realistically assess their dental needs and those of their children. Not only will it help you avoid or minimize dental disease, it will save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars for unnecessary and potentially harmful treatment. Beginning with the premise that the best treatment is minimal treatment if it solves the problem, the author, a practicing dentist for more than 30 years, discusses guidelines and costs for common (and commonly expensive) dental procedures. He advises the reader on such topics as: Proper home care and prevention Frequency of X-rays and prophylaxis (professional cleaning) Diagnosing and treating tooth decay and gum disease Composite, silver amalgam, gold and porcelain fillings Special precautions for children Unnecessary extractions Bleaching and veneering In clear, easy-to-understand language, Complete Guide to Dental Health outlines the costs, benefits, and risks of alternative treatments, suggesting ways to save time and money on such procedures as orthodontics, extractions and bridges. An extensive discussion of the misdiagnosis of impacted wisdom teeth, overuse of general anesthesia, and unnecessary caps and bleaching warns consumers of how they may be injured financially and physically by dentists. Most chapters conclude with recommendations to help you avoid being overcharged and overtreated. Charts provide information on a range of fees for common procedures. You are shown how dentists exploit patients with unnecessary treatment, upgrades and add-ons. Suggestions on how to choose and evaluate a dentist will turn the average patient into a savvy consumer. With extensive information on how dental decay and periodontal (pyorrhea) disease occur, Complete Guide to Dental Health will help protect your teeth and your pocketbook.

Tooth decay could be a precursor to obesity. Don’t believe it? Ask your dentist. Milan Somborac, DDS, sees the same patients again and again, suffering from plaque, cavities, and infection. He provides expensive treatments for preventable conditions, and he blames it all on refined carbohydrates. The human genome represents the entirety of our hereditary information, and it is not aligned with the nutritional qualities of our food or our modern activity levels. Because of this, our overall health is in decline, and tooth decay acts as an early warning for the onset of diseases later in life. In Your Mouth, Your Health Somborac makes the connection between overall health and dental health. He tells us how to prevent decline, through easy to apply examples that will save your teeth and your life. For example, instead of telling us to avoid hot dogs, he tells us how to make them healthy. Instead of removing potatoes, he compares their nutritional value to apples. This guide does not tell you what you can’t do; instead, it tells you how to do things better. There are serious benefits to eating from Mother Nature’s pantry, and you can do it in your neighborhood grocery store. By following the guidelines of Your Mouth, Your Health, you will maximize your genetic potential and live a long, healthy life.

Looking into your mouth is like looking under the hood of your car. Both are dark and mysterious places. Unfortunately, unlike your car, your mouth did not come with a guide to operation and repair. This book can serve as an "owner's manual," for it was written for those who hope to understand the mouth and how to keep it healthy. It will introduce what is in the mouth and how to take proper care of it. From its outline of the anatomy of the mouth to its discussions of contemporary dental research and technology, this book offers insight into the processes that determine dental health. It details daily oral hygiene and maintenance aimed at reducing the occurrence of common oral maladies. Also explained is the dentist's role in prevention and treatment, as well as the costs of dental care. Virtually all persons are affected by dental diseases of some sort. Many dental problems, especially bad breath, gum disease, and cavities, are almost entirely preventable. Whether it is for bleeding gums, cavities, crooked teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, stains, a host of other problems, or just a periodic checkup, nearly everyone will spend time and money at the dentist's office. For those who are concerned about appropriate care of the mouth and the teeth this clearly written book will be useful. The principles of dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, and select technical innovations in dentistry are discussed and clearly explained. Also, a helpful list of dental schools that provide low-cost care and a list of resources for further information are included. Although this book is not meant to be comprehensive, it offers the firm foundation for having informed discussion with your dentist and for maintaining oral health for a lifetime.

Heal Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease with Whole Foods

Free yourself from the downward spiral of scaling, root planing, gum grafts, flap surgery, chemicals, and the inevitable extractions and implants and cure gum disease (periodontitis) naturally. Ramiel Nagel's bestselling guide, Cure Tooth Decay, has inspired tens of thousands of readers to discover hidden and effective means to reduce dental cavities by at least 90 percent. In Cure Gum Disease Naturally, Nagel expands upon his original work and shows you the forgotten and suppressed cure for gum disease. The CDC now reports that about half of all adult Americans suffer from periodontal disease, with 8.5 percent of all adults having severe gum disease. And even worse, 23 percent of all adults aged sixty-five and older have lost all of their teeth. Despite the prevalence of periodontal disease, dentistry has not found the "cure" as it continues to allow adults to lose their teeth only to primarily offer the expensive and often painful alternative of dental implants. This is not a book that advocates for gum surgery, or for other chemical or harsh overpriced treatments with dubious results. This is a truly natural, holistic approach that primarily focuses on how you can use the food that you eat as medicine for your body, to give it specific and targeted nutrition, and to make your sad gums happy again. It will show you how to turn the frequent dreadful dental visits into a delight, and to help you stop worrying about the health of your teeth and gums so you can start living life-as you deserve to-once again. Take a bite out of life, improve how you feel, reduce your level of stress, and finally, at last, read a book that was truly written with a goal that you can align with, to get you out of the endless and unnecessary cycle of gum disease treatments that do not provide results that last because they never address the root cause. Cure Gum Disease Naturally is about you and your health. It begins with the story of how conventional dentistry no longer advocates and prescribes treatments based upon the agreed upon and proven cause of gum disease. You will learn how enlightened dentists Melvin Page and Harold Hawkins applied the research of esteemed dentist Weston Price in their practices to prevent the tragic loss of teeth by restoring gum health in their patients. You will then be led, step by step, through the evidence and the information that gives you a precise and detailed road map, using whole foods, to stop gum disease and to rebuild and repair your gums. Finally, you will be given essential information to navigate the dangerous waters of gum treatments, and find new ways to care for your teeth and gums that until now, few knew were even possible. Read Cure Gum Disease Naturally and learn how loose teeth can be firmed up and become rooted like a strong tree once again into your jaw bone, inflamed gums can become healthy, and bleeding can be greatly reduced and stopped. You will at last see clearly why you have succumbed to gum disease and know specific steps to take, by eating certain foods, to keep your gums healthy and thus keep your teeth for the rest of your life.

Dental health is intimately related to nutrition and diet and a thorough understanding of these relationships, and the preservation of health is an integral part of dental practice. The focus of modern dentistry is shifting from the filling and extracting of teeth towards prevention of dental decay and disease. The changing undergraduate dental curriculum reflects these changes and patients are increasingly asking for information on the best way to look after their teeth. Nutrition, Diet,and Oral Health is written for undergraduate students, covering the information they need in this field during their courses, as well as postgraduate dental students particularly in paedodontics and the GDP. Developed to help the reader build an understanding of the relationship between diet and the prevention of oral disease, this book is well illustrated in full colour and includes case-histories, information boxes and recommendations for further reading.
