<p>Throughout the years, dental health has often been characterized as a reflection of our overall health, where bad oral health results from issues with other parts of our body. But what if we flipped the paradigm? What if we thought about dental health as the foundation for our physical health as a whole?</p><p><b>Dr. Steven Lin</b>, an experienced dentist and the world’s first dental nutritionist, has analyzed our ancestral traditions, epigenetics, gut health, and the microbiome in order to develop food-based principles for a literal top-down holistic health approach. Merging dental and nutritional science, Dr. Lin lays out the dietary program that can help ensure you won’t need dental fillings or cholesterol medications —and give you the resources to raise kids who develop naturally straight teeth. With our mouth as the gatekeeper of our gut, keeping our oral microbiome balanced will create a healthy body through a healthy mouth.</p><p>Dr. Lin arms you with a 40-day meal plan, complete with the Dental Diet food pyramid, exercises for the mouth, recipes, and cooking techniques to help you easily and successfully implement his techniques into your everyday life. The tools to improve overall wellness levels and reverse disease are closer than we think —in our markets, in our pantries, and, most frequently, in our mouths —if not just a well-chosen bite or two away.</p>

<p>Conveniente…Necesario…Indispensable, son tres nociones que se apegan al devenir histórico y social de esta obra. Hace dos décadas, la primera edición de Medicina en Odontología. Manejo dental de pacientes con enfermedades sistémicas, abordaba lo “conveniente”. Era una época en la que el objetivo fundamental tanto de la Medicina como de la Odontología se enfocaba en la atención al daño más que a las enfermedades mismas, marcando conceptualmente a la enfermedad como: “de Facto”. Consecuentemente en aquel entonces, el contenido y orientación del texto aportaba herramientas preventivas a los Odontólogos para evitar que el daño médico establecido se agravase debido al tratamiento bucal.<br />En sólo pocos años cambian los valores; el concepto de salud y su preservación preponderan contraviniendo al de enfermedad. Los esfuerzos en diversas esferas locales y globales, se dirigen entonces a buscar la conservación de ese estado, o bien, en su ausencia, a una pronta y eficaz recuperación. En beneficio de los pacientes, en ocasiones ante la imposibilidad de recuperar la salud se propicia el control de la enfermedad. El avance científico y cultural logra que muchas de las enfermedades que aquejan al serhumano se mantengan en un estado crónico conveniente, que permite a los pacientes alcanzar más años de sobrevivencia en condiciones cercanas a las de una vida normal.<br />De ahí surge el concepto de “necesario”, que aplicamos a este texto, ya que en los consultorios odontológicos es cada vez más frecuente la presencia de pacientes solicitantes de servicios estomatológicos que presentan enfermedades sistémicas crónico-degenerativas bajo control, de etiología y evolución diversa bajo tratamiento médico de diferentes tipos, individuos que en épocas pretéritas muy recientes, , no formaban parte de su “mercado”.<br />En Medicina y Odontología preventivas también germinan transformaciones y en los foros globales aparece la intención de la conservación y promoción del estado de salud, bajo la premisa de que biológica, social y económicamente se convierte en una mejor opción. Concepto como nivel de riesgo y empoderamiento surgen en los medios médicos, gubernamentales, en las asociaciones gremiales y agencias internacionales. Aparecen también las primeras nociones de la interrelación e interdependencia de “lo local y lo sistémico”, manifestándose entonces el concepto en ciernes de Medicina Periodontal.</p>
Cure Gum Disease Naturally: Heal and Prevent Periodontal Disease ...

<p>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, <em>Cure Tooth Decay</em>, has inspired tens of thousands of readers to discover hidden and effective means to reduce dental cavities by at least 90 percent. In <em>Cure Gum Disease Naturally</em>, Nagel expands upon his original work and shows you the forgotten and suppressed cure for gum disease. </p> <br /><p>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.</p> <br /><p>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.</p> <br /><p><em>Cure Gum Disease Naturally</em> 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.</p> <br /><p>Read <em>Cure Gum Disease Naturally</em> 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.</p><br /><br /><b>Endorsement: Alvin H. Danenberg, DDS</b><br /><br />Periodontist of forty-one years<p></p> <p>"Ramiel takes a sincere and critical look at how gum disease is treated in the U.S. today. Or should I say, how gum disease is mistreated? I think it is an injustice not to inform patients that there are nutritional solutions that prevent gum disease, which is a type of chronic disease. This is a book you must read... Pass it onto everyone you love and care about."</p>

Zur Verringerung oder Abdeckung der schwarzen Dreiecke, die aufgrund der fehlenden Papillen entstehen, gibt es heute mehrere Lösungsansätze.<br /><br />Konventionelle Restaurationen sind eine mögliche Alternative, wenn die Zähne eine erhöhte Mobilität aufweisen. Ist dies nicht der Fall, das Parodontium also gesund, ist es wichtig, dass eine biomimetische Lösung gesucht wird, das heisst eine Lösung, die ästhetische, biomechanische und biologische Faktoren berücksichtigt.<br /><br />Stichworte: Interdentalpapille Lithiumdisilikat Pressen
