Your breath will smell terrible, you will be at a higher risk for heart disease, and advanced gum disease can lead to tooth loss.

Gum disease is caused by plaque, and regular brushing simply can’t get......

  • Why is it that with all the technically advanced toothbrushes, toothpastes and mouthwashes available today, the incidence of gum disease and tooth decay is higher than ever before? We even see young children suffering from gum disease. WHY??? There are three main reasons 1. The food we eat today is so lacking in nutrients that we derive far less benefit from it then our ancestors. Carbonated drinks, juices (apple juice as a pH of only 2), sugary food, processed food and artificial sweeteners all add to this burden. 2. The daily cleaning habits are often insufficient in removing harmful bacteria......

  • According to new research gum disease carries a higher risk of causing a stroke than diabetes. People are twice as likely to suffer from a non-fatal stroke as a result of gum disease compared to diabetes. Until recently high blood pressure and diabetes were widely accepted as major risks contributing to non-fatal stroke. The research puts the impact of gum disease on the same level as high blood pressure as an independent risk factor associated to non-fatal stroke.

  • What to do??? For any parent, it is always hard to see your child suffering with the irritation and pain of teething. Some children are fortunate enough to simply cut a tooth overnight without any drawn out pain, whereas some less fortunate children experience discomfort for days or even weeks with each tooth. Unfortunately, the process of teething cannot be prevented, and as it can take 2-3 years for a child to get its full set of primary teeth, it can be a very distressing time for the child. But luckily there are some effective ways to help ease the......

  • The Phillips Blotting Brush and Technique Dr Phillips had developed the unique Blotting Brush and the associated method of cleaning: the Blotting Technique in the late 1960´s. The Blotting Brush The unique feature of a Blotting Brush is their hollow bristles that have capillary action to draw plaque and debris from teeth and gums.

  • Your teeth and your body are connected I found this wonderful piece of art on Dr. Poschneider´s web site. One of many stories from my clinic: For many years a patient had suffered from alternating constipation and diarrhoea together with pains in his stomach and large intestine before becoming a patient at my clinic. The initial x-ray showed a large bone loss on the lower right first molar. This tooth is linked to the large intestine. The tooth and the abscess were removed, the bone cleaned and some homeopathic remedies injected into this area. When he came back for checking......

It supposedly prevents cavities, and the government even adds it to many local areas’ drinking water as a way to prevent tooth decay. However, the assumption that fluoride is a great thing to drink on a daily basis is not a good one to make. There are many hidden dangers behind this seemingly innocent chemical additive in our drinking water. The first thing that needs to be said about the fluoride that is put into our drinking water is that it’s actually a commonly......
