10 Ways To Treat Tooth Decay
Ten ways to treat tooth decay (according to Dr. Nový)
1. Increase the amount of arginine in the diet. Eat more spinach, soy, seafood, and nuts.
2. Brush with baking soda. If patients don’t like the taste of baking soda, have them apply toothpaste to the brush then dip it in a little baking soda. Encourage the use of a Sonicare toothbrush.
3. Apply chlorhexidine varnish (Cervitec Plus) to exposed roots. Follow up with fluoride varnish one week later. The chlorhexidine arrests the enzymatic breakdown of dentinal collage. The high dose of fluoride will help with mineralization processes.
4. Stock up on Nuvora products and encourage patients to use them daily. All of their lozenges contain xylitol and baking soda. When these lozenges are in the mouth, the pH does not fall to critical values. Check out www.nuvorainc.com.
5. Work with a compounding pharmacy or use mine (909.478.3842). Products like arginine mouthwash and pilocarpine lollipops are indispensible for difficult patients. Instead of giving chlorhexidine mouthwash, prescribe a compounded gel. The staining is minimized and patient compliance increases.
6. Offer patients Glylic lollipops. Glylic is a compound from licorice root that has specific antimicrobial properties against cariogenic and periodontal organisms. Go to www.drjohns.com for more information.
7. Xylitol is a great preventive aid. Patients should try to get six grams per day. IceBreakers Ice Cubes gum has the highest concentration of xylitol. Patients should two pieces of gum three times each day.
8. Use some of the rapid diagnostics that are on the market. GC America makes a saliva analysis kit and a monoclonal antibody test. CariFree makes the ATP meter. You don’t need to test everyone, but you may be surprised to see the results on people you thought were low risk.
9. Remember cariogenic organisms that result in cavities have grown up in the presence of fluoride for a long time. Treat the disease with something other than fluoride, then return to low doses of topical fluoride (like ADA accepted toothpaste) for home prevention.
10. Clinpro 5000 and MI Paste is the only product that changes plaque biology. Have patients apply a “dab” to their tongue after brushing before bed. Use the tongue to wipe it around the mouth. This should be regular practice for anyone wearing occlusal guards or Invisalign.
Breakfast Cereals Intentionally Confuse
First, there is intentional confusion. With so many different kinds of cereal lining the shelves, figuring out which is the best requires detective work. Many make claims about health, boasting “no trans fats,” “gluten-free,” and “a boost of omega three.” Others play to environmental concerns declaring “earthy harmony,” “nature in balance,” and “sustainable soils.” With the legion of labels, separating wheat from chaff seems impossible, but the report offers one rule of thumb: Don’t confuse organic with “natural.”
Nursing Shortage In The USA
Our so-called angels of mercy are in a bad situation: they’re facing a dire nursing shortage that shows no sign of improving. If we have such glorified opinions of nurses, why are they dropping like flies? If nursing is one of the most secure and well-paid job markets in the country, why are we struggling to fill and keep nursing positions?
Shock Therapy For Erectile Dysfunction
The findings suggest sound wave therapy may used to treat ED patients who don't respond well to conventional therapies. However, the study was small, involving only 29 men, and the results may have been due to a placebo effect, so more work is needed to validate the findings, the researchers said.
The results are somewhat counterintuitive, Kramer observed, considering that sound waves used in kidney stone treatments are designed to be destructive. "It's like saying, take your penis and hit it with a hammer a couple of times," Kramer said.
Chocolate Extract Better Than Fluoride For Tooth Decay
Theodent, the Mercedes of Non-Fluoride toothpastes, is launching in Whole Foods February 2, 2012.
Have some chocolate each day to keep the dentist away? It seems to fly in the face of common sense: A cocoa extract is more effective at protecting teeth than fluoride? But that’s the word from researchers who found that an ingredient in chocolate can fight cavities and promote dental health.
Arman Sadeghpour, PhD, led the Tulane University arm of the research team, which also included scientists from the University of New Orleans and Louisiana University’s School of Dentistry. They compared a cocoa extract versus fluoride, side-by-side on the enamel surface of human teeth.
The key to cocoa’s dental benefits, according to Sadeghpour, is a substance called theobromine. A water-insoluble, crystalline bitter powder, theobromine is an alkaloid of the cacao plant, and is therefore found in chocolate along with teas and other foods. Its chemical makeup is similar to caffeine. Theobromine helps harden tooth enamel, making teeth less susceptible to decay.
The cocoa extract could offer the first major innovation in commercial toothpaste since manufacturers began adding fluoride in 1914. Sadeghpour has since started up a biotech company, Theodent, and created a prototype of peppermint-flavored toothpaste with the cavity-fighting cocoa extract.
In the meantime, Sadeghpour adds that consuming foods containing theobromine also boosts dental health. “Consumers do receive some benefit to all their bone tissue just from eating chocolate, thanks to the theobromine,” he says.
Chocolate candy doesn’t come close to matching the hoped-for benefits of Sadegh - pour’s toothpaste, however. You get only about 3% theobromine even in high-quality dark chocolate, he explains, which is far outweighed by the tooth-decaying effects of sugar.
Facial Bones Make Us Look Older
As we age or injure ourselves the facial tissue shrinks to fit the changing bone, thus reducing mobility as well as aggravating pain and accelerating age wrinkles. Dental treatment, birth trauma, and emotional trauma all contribute to age wrinkles. Craniosacral Therapy addresses and helps resolve the conflicts within our physical and emotional self leading to a natural anti-aging result.
