The Cause of Dental Disease

I am prompted to write this blog with the ever growing number of people who come into my practice who are so sick. They go to the dentist on a regular basis and yet when asked if they know the cause of dental disease, they do not!

This is because the dental providers are not helping them get beyond disease. It is because the providers have been taught only one way: fix the symptom, but not look at the cause.

The technical word for this kind of stress is called “distress”. The more desirable form of stress; the kind we all want to know how to generate more of is called “ustress”. Ustress is the form that keeps us acting in ways which support action towards the accomplishment of our goals. Read More...

Partnering with a dental team that coaches you on how to prevent the causes of disease and what role you play in this process, is the secret to your success. But the last one BAD BITE you can’t do anything about by yourself. This takes dentists trained specifically in this area to help you stop this disease progression.
