Turns out your smile tells the world a lot about you — not just your dental health, but your overall health, too. If you neglect your gums and pearly whites, heart problems, diabetes, and (guys!) even erectile dysfunction may not be far behind. The secret to good health, dental or otherwise according to research dentist Bill Kellner-Read, is to start early.
Proper dental care begins even before a baby’s first tooth appears. Remember that just because you can’t see the teeth doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Teeth actually begin to form in the second trimester of pregnancy. At birth your baby has 20 primary teeth, some of which are fully developed in the jaw.
The Chinese would argue that you need to be healthy to be fit, yet western philosophy attempts to use fitness to get healthy. Isn’t that back to front?
It is no mistake that we are given 32 teeth. Each tooth is important and has a role to play. You see there is a functional expansion technique that allows these 32 teeth to come into alignment many times without the need for extractions. Narrow jaws and crowded teeth are just the result of poor growth.
Natural health and outspoken authority on dental hygiene Dr Bill Kellner-Read says that taking out teeth for orthodontic reasons may in fact make this worse. He has helped many growing children overcome overcrowding (including my own daughter) without extractions. He continually turns traditional dental practitioners on their heads when he goes against traditional dentistry and has resounding success using alignment, nutrition, and the elimination of toxic chemicals such as store bought toothpastes and mouth washes.
Toxic chemicals you may say?
Who would expose their children to such things? Well, imagine my horror when I discovered that the reason my daughter had spent 15 years of her life suffering from severe echema and dermatitis was for that very reason! We just don’t know what we don’t know, and that’s all there is to it. So the reason for this post is to educate you to some of the simple avoidable problems associated with your dental and bathroom products.
Many wholistic dentists from Maestro Smiles now insist that nutritional supplementation, including Co Enzyme Q10, is essential in all dental problem cases. As responsible parents surely it’s time to sit up and take notice? This goes for your health too! You can sit back and let it happen or you can do something about it.
This includes a good healthy mouth, balanced bite and jaw joints that work in harmony with the neck and the rest of the spine! But you must also look at your family’s nutritional program. The ground breaking dentist of last century Dr Weston Price found that in all cases as cultures took on the foods of the Western society, their next generations teeth began to suffer. The bite, the strength of the teeth, the teeth became misalligned and their general health began to be affected. In one generation!
Can you get all this nutrition from food?
Well perhaps you can if you are eating organic, and you eat all day long, but why take the risk? As you can see from the above, even though most of their foods were still organically grown, ill health began to appear. So why not take nutritional supplements this winter and help your body to help itself. We believe that it is important to treat the body (and your teeth) in three ways.
- Firstly, according to Dr Bill, regular dental check ups which need to cover not just the teeth and gums but also the soft tissues. Prevention IS better than cure. So first up, by avoiding the use of harmful ingredients in dental products, by using non-toxic dental care ranges, you stop further damage to gums
- Secondly we need to look after ourselves. The best ways are ensuring good mechanical function of the teeth, correct brushing, adequate hydration, exercise etc
- Thirdly, look after out for ourselves with a good nutritional program.
We have plenty of information on these areas in the following posts and even more importantly for the long-term health of your child, Kellner-Read advocates using the Savvy Teams choice of dental care as the safest in the world, so make sure you find out why from your support person.
Your nutritional program should include a good quality anti-oxidant, minerals, vitamins and trace elements, including pycnogenols, Co enzyme Q10, selenium, essential fatty acids and green foods like Chlorella. The vital importance of good quality anti-oxidants, and getting an abundance of absorbable minerals (we need 60+ trace elements as well as macro minerals for good health), vitamins and other trace elements including ingredients such as pine bark, are easy ways to ensure good health in your children’s teeth and in throughout their whole body.

Oral health and balance is so important to general health.
Heavy metals used in fillings, poor unbalanced bites, lack of teeth or sick teeth linked to different organs of the body can give rise to blockages in the system and a lack of harmony and health. Normalisation of the whole body system, by extracting mercury amalgums (or not using them in the first place) can lead you back on the road to better health!
As I said earlier, these nutrients also play a part in the fight against cardiovascular disease, stroke and diabetes. When you add to that the news that the chemicals in your current dental products could be harming more than just your gums, perhaps it’s tiime to contact your Savvy team support person for more information?
