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.

Forget about drilling, filling, and the inevitable billing. Your teeth can heal naturally because they were never designed to decay in the first place! They were designed to remain strong and healthy for your entire life. But the false promises of conventional dentistry have led us down the wrong path, leading to invasive surgical treatments that include fillings, crowns, root canals and dental implants. Now there is a natural way to take control of your dental health by changing the food that you eat. Cure Tooth Decay is based upon the pioneering nutritional program of dentist Weston Price, former head of research at the National Dental Association. Dr. Price's program proved to be 90-95% or more effective in remineralizing tooth cavities utilizing only nutritional improvements in the diet. Cure Tooth Decay is the result of five years of research and trial and error that started as one father's journey to cure his daughter's rapidly progressing tooth decay. With Cure Tooth Decay you will join the thousands of people who have learned how to remineralize teeth, eliminate tooth pain or sensitivity, avoid root canals, stop cavities -- sometimes instantaneously, regrow secondary dentin, form new tooth enamel, avoid or minimize gum loss, heal and repair tooth infections, only use dental treatments when medically necessary, save your mouth (and your pocketbook) from thousands of dollars of unneeded dental procedures, and increase your overall health and vitality.

Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox

How a Little-Known Vitamin Could Save Your Life

The secret to avoiding calcium-related osteoporosis and atherosclerosis While millions of people take calcium and Vitamin D supplements thinking they're helping their bones, the truth is, without the addition of Vitamin K2, such a health regimen could prove dangerous. Without Vitamin K2, the body cannot direct calcium to the bones where it's needed; instead, the calcium resides in soft tissue (like the arteries)—leading to a combination of osteoporosis and atherosclerosis, or the dreaded "calcium paradox." This is the first book to reveal how universal a Vitamin K2 deficiency is, and the risk (in the form of cancer and diabetes, among other ailments) the absence of Vitamin K2 poses. Written by Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue, a popular health expert on Canadian television and radio, Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox sounds a warning about the popularity of the calcium and Vitamin D craze, while illustrating the enormous health benefits of Vitamin K2 in making the body less susceptible to dental cavities, heart disease, prostate cancer, liver cancer, diabetes, wrinkles, obesity, varicose veins, and other ailments. The book demystifies this obscure supernutrient—a fat soluble vitamin that humans once thrived on, ignored by scientists for almost seventy years Details how the consumption of grass-fed animals led to adequate Vitamin K2 intake—while grain-based animal feed helped eradicate Vitamin K2 from our diets Describes how doctors are raising recommended doses of calcium and Vitamin D—without prescribing Vitamin K2 Details more damning facts about transfats—and how the creation of a synthetic Vitamin K interfered with the body's Vitamin K metabolism An essential book for anyone interested in bone health, or maintaining their overall health, Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox is the guide to taking the right combination of supplements—and adding Vitamin K2 to a daily regimen.

“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 book shows readers that den-tal problems, including discoloured and unattractive teeth, can easily be controlled -- without pain, flossing or big dental bills. Dr Ellie Phillips has developed a low-cost system to strengthen your teeth and keep them healthy and without big bills! Her simple, preventive program has just three steps: 1. Use Xylitol -- a sweetener derived from a natural sugar found in plant and vegetable fibres -- to eliminate bacteria; Use well-tested mouth rinses to further eliminate bacteria and control the acidity in your mouth; Avoid foods, drinks, and situations that weaken tooth enamel, and consume protective, healing foods to build it up. Traditional dentistry cannot prevent cavities or eliminate gum disease. But this do-it-yourself treatment plan can. Using the products Dr Phillips recommends, in the way she describes, reduces plaque build-up, strengthens tooth enamel, repairs small cavities, eliminates tooth sensitivity, and improves the way your teeth look. Who wouldn't love clean, whiter, healthier teeth?

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.
