So, You Hate The Dentist? You are not alone, so many people do. And it is easy to understand why!
The major reason is FEAR OF PAIN! That is understandable.
But what if you could be free of dental problems and every time you went, you felt nothing but good about getting your teeth cleaned and they found nothing wrong at all and said you were doing a good job!
It CAN be like that. You just need to understand a few basic principles.
BTW. When they probe your gum tissue, it should never hurt! And if it does, there is a good chance that you have inflamed gums and gum disease! So be aware of that. It should NOT hurt at all and your gums should not bleed when your teeth are cleaned either! If they bleed, even a little bit, there is likely a problem!
Ok, so let’s get back to the point here. Ask any dental professional and they will all say the same thing, “What You Do at Home Has The Greatest Bearing On Your Dental Wellness”.
What that means is that by taking care of your gums and teeth at home, you can have a MUCH better experience at the dentist’s office!
Brushing and Flossing? Sure they are important but they are NOT the whole deal nor everything you need to understand to keep your gums and teeth healthy either!
Healthy teeth should not break or crack either! Every day, your teeth are going through a process called remineralization. If they don’t get to do this, they become weaker, leading to cavities or other dental problems.
You can’t avoid the acidic foods and drinks that interfere with this process, that just isn’t practical! But what you can do is learn that there are important things to do after consuming / drinking these beverages and that includes rebalancing the pH in your mouth!
Why? Basic chemistry actually. Your teeth need a basic (more alkaline) environment to be remineralized. That means calcium and phosphate and other minerals are going INTO your teeth. In an acidic environment the OPPOSITE Is happening, meaning that the minerals are leaving the teeth instead of going INTO them.
What I just described, if it continue to happen day after day makes the teeth weaker and weaker over time. It is simple to see how that helps create cavities, broken and cracked teeth and perhaps infection develops inside the tooth.
In addition, the biggest cause of tooth loss is gum disease! And when there is an acidic environment the bacteria that secrete additional acids that cause tooth decay and gum disease multiply more rapidly! Double Trouble!
Now does it make some sense? You can help to balance the pH in your mouth.
I discuss these principles in the book: What You Should Know about Gum Disease – As you can see the principles in this book can help you to protect your gums and teeth! Do not go another day without this priceless information!
When your gums are healthy and your teeth are healthy there is no longer any reason to fear the dentist! You can instead begin to enjoy the process of getting your teeth clean and a bit lighter looking when you leave and ALL WITHOUT ANY PAIN.
With healthy teeth and gums there is NO EXPENSIVE DENTAL WORK to fear. Over time, or even starting right now, you could SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS!
So just go get it, read it, and reap the benefits for yourself and your loved ones!
And if you are a dentist, consider that this book would be a great patient education tool – AND a gift for your patients! Give a copy to ALL of your patients!
