Periodontal Disease and Bone Loss
As you age, you lose bone around the teeth. A sign of this is loss of the gingival tissue or the "long in tooth" look. This is called Periodontal Disease or Osteoporosis of the mouth.

In Orthodontics, teeth move through resorption and deposition of bone; therefore, we must keep the bone healthy to have successful orthodontic results and prevent bone loss in the future.

How do we do this?

We move teeth slowly, not rapidly. We do not use heavy pressure.

The use of biophosphates by women has proven to cause hip fractures by making the bone more brittle. In fact, if you take this drug, you cannot have dental implants.  Like smoking, fosamax is a contraindication for dental implants as osseointegration of the implant with the bone may be compromised.  Anyone taking fosamax, should discuss this with their physician. I do not recommend this prescription medicine.

I do recommend the following diet, vitamins and nutrients:
grass fed beef and pork, free range chicken, ducks, and eggs, organic green vegetables
raw milk and raw cream products from known farms
Avoid sugar in your food even the hidden sugars like bread and pasta.
Vitamin D or lots of sunshine
Horsetail for the silica

Health Tips & Interesting Articles

Osteopathic treatment is an integral part of assisting the body in making an orthodontic correction. The proper alignment of the teeth is dependent on a correct relationship of the upper jaw (maxilla) to the lower jaw (mandible).

To make changes in tooth alignment requires changes not only in relationship of the maxilla to the mandible but in complex relationships of these bones to several other bones of the face and skull. All places where bones come together in the skull, have the capability of motion, more in childhood than in adulthood. This small amount of motion is essential to a successful orthodontic correction.

Osteopathic cranial treatment assists orthodontic correction by helping all the bones of the skull adjust to the orthodontic changes.

Caution: Dental Sealants Often Used in Children and Other Composite Resins Contain BPA--the same component of PLASTIC! 

Journal of Dentistry 41 (2013)
Bisphenol-A release from dental pit and fissure sealants:
The twenty-four hour release of BPA from dental materials existed in patients with multiple or large restorations. Resin-based dental materials may represent a significant source of BPA. BPA can interact with alternative endocrine receptors as thyroid hormone receptors. BPA was classified as a reproductive toxic substance, a significant risk factor for human fertility. 

Alternatives: Use gold in place of composite resins or, better yet, practice immaculate oral hygiene and proper diet (low sugar and low carb, NO SODA - diet soda is just as bad) to avoid these harmful filling materials.    

Studies Link Diet Soda To Higher Health Risks
Many Americans have been attempting to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. This includes switching from typical sugary beverages to diet drinks. This has been happening more and more over the last few decades. As soon as everyone realized the dangers of soda and the high sugar content, the switch was straight to the cans of diet soda. But is diet soda even worse than standard soda? Does diet soda increase your risk of having a stroke or developing dementia?

A new study was published by Matthew Pase, a neurologist at the Boston University School of Medicine, looking into the relationship between diet soda and health complications. The study was published in the journal, Stroke, and has brought this subject to the forefront of everyone’s mind.

Pase’s study concluded that there is a link between diet soda and increased risks of dementia and stroke. Individuals who drink diet soda daily are almost three times more at risk, over 10 years, compared to individuals did not drink diet sodas. The risk for increased illness includes “a higher risk of ischemic stroke” as well as the most common form of Alzheimer’s, known as dementia. This study observed 2,888 individuals over the age of 45 to determine risk for a stroke. A separate 1,484 individuals were studied for the possibility of dementia. This second group were individuals over the age of 60.

 Townsend Letter for Doctors implicates FLUORIDE in ALZHEIMER'S and ADHD: 10/2019

Alzheimer’s Disease

In 2019, a large longitudinal study found a dose-response pattern of association between dementia in women and men who consumed relatively low drinking-water levels of fluoride. The dementia risk more than doubled in the highest quartile compared with the lowest.32

US death rates in 2013 from Alzheimer’s disease (sixth leading cause of death) averaged 9% higher in the 20 states whose public water supplies were more than 80% fluoridated (avg. 93% in 2012), compared to the 30 states fluoridated below 80% (avg. 58%).33,34 

In the 10 most fluoridated states (avg. 97%), Alzheimer’s death rates averaged 25% higher than in the 10 least fluoridated states (avg. 35%).

​Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

The most common neurodevelopmental disorder of childhood is ADHD. Each one-percent increase in artificial fluoridation prevalence in the US was associated with 67,000 to 131,000 additional ADHD diagnoses (2003 to 2011).40

In 2011, rates for youth (aged 4-17) currently diagnosed with ADHD averaged 25% higher in the states fluoridated at 80% or more, compared to those below 80% in 2010.33,41

Mental Retardation/Intellectual Disability

In 1993, mental retardation prevalence rates averaged 33% higher for children (aged 6-17) in the 26 states fluoridated above the national average (62% in 1992) compared to the 24 states fluoridated below it.42,43

By 2012, it had nearly doubled. The prevalence rates of “intellectual disability” (the new term for mental retardation) averaged 57% higher for students (aged 6-21) in the 26 states fluoridated above the national average (75% in 2012) compared to the 24 states fluoridated below it.33,44

In the 10 most fluoridated states, intellectual disability prevalence averaged 84% higher than in the 10 least fluoridated states.

Check out the book called, THE END OF ALZHEIMERS by Dale Bredesen because he recommends diet and lifestyle as a way of preventing dementia. Of course, there are genetic markers, but also INFLAMMATION plays a large role in causing Alzheimers. A diet low in sugar prevents inflammation. Remember the importance of gut health, and pre and pro biotics to ensure healthy bacteria.
