It Is All About Your Smile

Posted By: Randy GageApril 26, 2011

We’ve had a great series on the importance of health to your prosperity.  Before we move on, there’s one more topic to look at…

Dental care.

This has a bigger role in people’s health than many realize.  And a bigger role in prosperity that many realize as well.

You mouth and teeth are how you take in food and get your nourishment.  And plaque, abscess teeth, or gum disease can create more serious health problems down the road.  There is a growing body of evidence that gum disease actually leads to cardiovascular disease.

Cavities are actual decay in your teeth.  And what do you think having decaying teeth in your mouth is doing for your health?  Or your breath?

And as mentioned, it isn’t just for health.  Having a great smile is important for prosperity and happiness.  If you’re self-conscious about your teeth, you’ll probably resist smiling a lot.

Long time readers know I hate debt and advise against it.  But one area I would recommend this is dental care.  If you have missing, chipped, or discolored teeth, gaps or other issues that make you self-conscious, work out a payment plan and get it taken care of.  You’ll prevent serious health challenges later on, and you’ll be more confident in your day-to-day interactions.   Likewise, if you need braces, get it done.  They’re not just for kids.

Now why don’t more people take care of their teeth?

Because they’ve been to a bad dentist and are afraid of the pain!  I know.  I had a dreadful dentist as a child and carried that fear into adulthood.  And I needed a lot of work!  It’s all mental, I know.  I have a very high pain tolerance.  I played softball with a fractured wrist, won a tournament by hitting a home run with a broken finger, and picked myself up off the road when I was shot.  But put me in a dentist chair and I am a coward!

Today there is no reason to fear going to the dentist.  Dental care has advanced greatly.  And if you’re a wimp like me, you can use nitrous oxide, or even sedation.

When I moved to Miami I found a wonderful dentist named Dr. Larry Grillo.  He also has a couple excellent colleagues working with him and they do preventative, regular and cosmetic dentistry.  You can get ahold of their practice, Aventura Dental Arts at (305) 682-1414 or http://www.aventuradentalarts.com/

For my braces he sent me to Dr. Richard Mariani, who runs a great orthodontic practice and did a wonderful job.  Find him at http://www.marianiorthodontics.com/about.swf or call (305) 665-2402.

When I needed an implant and corrective jaw surgery, I went to Doctors Holmes and Sclar who practice at http://www.southfloridaoms.com/index.html

Have a great dentist where you live?  Please share their info below.

  1. Hi RG,

    More great stuff here.

    Only enlightened souls and the very self-assured could care less if they're missing teeth. Having a nice set of chompers helps to improve your self-confidence and overall health. It's difficult to enjoy your good when your teeth in poor condition too, and most of us love to eat.

    Thanks for sharing Randy!

  2. Soon you'll be seeing me with braces... I honestly think I have the best dentist in the world - Mohammed Amir has clients like Frank Bruno and Jon Bon Jovi.

    He believes that each tooth is aligned with meridian lines... So removal of teeth affect your health... He says that perfect health comes from perfect alignment, effective positioning, proper breathing...

    I've met people in the waiting room who haven't worked for years, and can live a normal life, and clients with severe back ache that he cured with a mouth brace.

    Here's an article where he's cured migraines, MS, and mental illness:

    http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/health/article-23753592-how-a-dental-brace-could-cure-ms-migraines-and-paralysis.do

    Here's one article on him - changing a childs health - who had allegies, snoring, skin problem....

    http://www.positivehealth.com/article/case-studies/case-study-issue-89-holistic-dentistry-for-allergies-skin-problems-and-snoring

    Here are his details:
    Dr Amir on +44 20 8780 3433 or email him at [email protected]

    He's in London - tho has clients that fly from the US, Australia, South Africa, Ireland, and all over Europe to see him.

    1. PS- tell him I sent you if you fly in to see him.

      He's also helped cure IBS, colitis, and yuupie flu. Having seen him for over 10 years I've met many of the clients who's lives he's changed through changing the jaw!

  3. I absolutely have a great dentist to recommend in Toronto! He is a complete perfectionist, which with cosmetic work is a very good thing! He is another dentist that people fly in from all over to see. His name is Dr. Mark Kochman, and you can find him at http://www.nu-mouth.com.

  4. Randy,

    Thanks for your post!

    I am a dentist. Many of us dentists help our anxious and fearful patients with the help of sedation. When looking for a dentist who provides sedation, we are not all alike.

    Look for a dentist who holds a Sedation Permit from your State. This means they have aditional training to best help you.

    God Bless,

    Dave

  5. Great post, Randy!
    I actually love our new orthodontist, Dr. Kimi S. Caswell http://www.hawaiibraces.com 808-536-2223, and have appointments with our new dentist Dr.Joanne Le, 808-591-2115, in May and an oral surgeon for our daughters' wisdom teeth extraction in June with Dr. David Haynes 808-973-3747. All offices have caring, efficient & friendly staff. They are all within walking distance from our apt. too.
    Big SMILES!
    Aloha, Denise

  6. I've always been grateful that my parents had braces put on me. 4 years, but I now can light up a room with my smile. I'm always complimented on it and I think the bigger the smile, the larger the heart. And I know I've mentioned this on the blog before, but since we are on the subject. FLOSS!!! I couldn't go a day without it and it is a prerequiste to a kiss on the lips. I would agree with Randy that if your smile is holding you back, go and have it fixed. The whole world needs to see more smiles and we are all deserving of giving and getting them. One word of concern. I had a few cavities as a kid and they were filled with the silver filling which I had taken out and replaced with the new compound. Unfortunately, afterwards 2 of my teeth cracked from I assume the drilling so be very careful if you have the replacements done, that you get the best guy for the job. It will be twice as costly to have them fixed if you don't.

  7. Улыбка малыша,поднимает настроение,греет душу.Больше доброты в мир,больше детских улыбок.

  8. Long-time reader, first time posting..Growing up my teeth were one of many things that made me feel awkward. I refused to get braces (didn't want to call more attention to myself) when my dad's insurance covered them at 100%.

    Flash forward to my son needing braces. When he didn't want them, I heard myself telling him - get them now, or you may regret it later - I wish I would have gotten them. He very innocently looked at me and asked - so why don't you get them NOW? I laughed because I didn't have a valid answer - so, in my 30's I got braces! Wow, what a difference. My confidence soared I haven't stopped smiling since - something I get compliments on now! I was in Business Development at the time and that change carried over to every aspect of my life.

    I ADORE my dentist not only a great dentist, he's also a huge believer in giving back. http://www.sorrentovalleydental.com/about-us
    My fantastic orthodontist was:

  9. Randy,
    Something our family has discovered can have a big impact on both a persons health and prosperity. Many of us brilliant and creative people suffer from some form of Dyslexia, ADD or other dysfunction. Lack of focus, lack of organization.
    There are 7 major switches in the brain and 200 minor switches. These switches are activated by both sound and light frequencies.
    (when there is not enough natural light present,the switches shut down and depression/lack of function happens)
    Stress also plays a large part in dysfunction.
    Jean Genet, a brilliant researcher, was cured of Autism using theses frequencies and has created a CD system that you listen to at nite while you sleep that turns on these switches. My autistic son has greatly improved in all areas, especially speech and comprehension in the last 6 mos. they have helped me be more organized and make decisions faster and more easily. I recommend them to anyone with the desire to "align" their brain with there body.

    Remember, Fresh air, Sunshine, Water and Raw/organic food and Love!

  10. My children LOVE the dentist and count down the days to their next appointments! They have THE BEST Pediatric dentist anywhere! They go to Dr. Kelli and Dr. Ty in Frisco, Texas. They are amazing, their staff is phenomenal, their office is state of the art, 100% geared to kids! Their gloves are grape scented for heaven's sake, and they blow them up into balloons for the kids to bring home. Every chair has a flat screen TV above them, and a choice of DVD to watch. Kids rule and are treated like rockstars! Amazing environment! http://www.drkelli.com or call them at 214) 387-0099

    My husband and I really like our dentist too! Dr. Jason Miller, also in Frisco. (214) 387-8181.

  11. Hi Randy,

    As a Dentist, I fully support what you are saying here. I see people's lives change as a result of some of our simplest procedures.

    In Sydney, I am a long way from most of your readers, but I have people fly in from USA and England for their regular check-ups. It just shows how much value they put on ther dental health.

    Apart from the infective processes that you mentioned which affect long term health, we also have a huge impact on structural health.

    I work with chiropractors and osteopaths who understand that the way the jaws work, and the teeth fit together is essential to spinal and cranial health.

    While correcting jaw problems, we are also improving the airway and helping to prevent the problems caused by snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

    I love my work because of the results I see every day and the happy smiling faces I see as they thank me for the work I have done.

    Trevor

  12. FYI:
    Here in the states most dentists offer "care credit" through GE Finance where, with credit approval, you can get terms such as 6-12 months same as cash.

  13. I wanted to share one more thought on this. For years, I have been gargling with hydrogen peroxide (don't swallow it) and use baking soda on my teeth before I brush with a non floridated paste. You don't even want to know the true story behind flouride. Stay away from it. Baking soda doesn't hurt your enamel and my teeth are super white and I don't use whiteners. While we are discussing appearance, I have used baking soda as an exfoliater on my face for years and witch hazel as an astringent. It's the best and your skin will never look better and it will increase your bank account, not spending fortunes on products that couldn't compete.
    Happy Flossing.

  14. Hi fellow bloggers,
    I'm not going to be on the site for a while. I am checking another memory off my bucket list. I'll be in Paris for a month and have promised myself that I will step away from every known internet devise. Looking forward to enjoying the food, shopping and culture. I'm sure the world won't miss me and I share this with you in hopes that you can all learn to shut off from the norm sometimes. I've learned it's in the quiet times that you grow the most.

  15. i love the dentist... since i was a kid.. strange but true. but one thing i hate is when i get them cleaned... lol.. it is fun to smile =0)

  16. Having amalgam (silver) fillings is like having a weak battery in your mouth (each one contains a blend of alloys, plus you have the saliva so you get a galvanic current). Even gold fillings should be avoided for this reason. It creates an immunological response, so this is not good for your health. The amalgams also contain and release mercury. I had my last four amalgam fillings replaced about three years ago. My dentist sealed off my mouth with plastic and gave me an oxygen mask. The stuff is really toxic! I've heard that the composite resin fillings most commonly used to replace them contain BPA, which has been getting a lot of bad press of late. I believe that all porcelain (not porcelain over metal) fillings are the way to go as they're most bio-compatible. A good dentist will also likely suggest that all of your teeth can fit in your mouth - they don't require extraction. Most people just need to have their teeth re-positioned. This also assists with spinal/cranial and breathing problems that others have already mentioned. Unfortunately I can't recommend a good dentist at the moment as I've decided it's time for a better one.

    1. Yes I should have mentioned that. If you are over 30 and have old fillings, they probably have mercury in them that is leaking out in your bloodstream. I had all my old ones replaced about 15 years ago.

  17. Randy. Amazing. Yesterday I went to the my dentits to make tooth control. She is a very good one in my area. She is a good prof3essional and has technics about pain tratement. She is Patricia Palacio (02965) 456 802 in Puerto Madryn, Chubut, Argentina. 🙂

  18. Admittedly, the first time I went to the dentist was when I was 24. (There may have been once or twice as a child but I do not recall).

    Had massive tooth pain but because I heard the dreadful story from others, I refrained from going myself.

    Until it got so bad, so much pain that I had no choice.

    I even asked my mommy to come with me 8). Yes, I was a big baby in this case.

    I remember sitting in the chair, looking at mommy and having the dentist sticking weird things in my mouth. Wanted to gag, vomit and cause a racket.

    But surprisingly, 3 root canals later I was fine. I wasn't even sure what pain people were talking about or why people were scared to go to the dentist (even if I didn't get enough anesthesia and felt the drilling for a moment or two before she gave me more)...

    Ever since then, I am a big fan. Goes well with my weight loss 8) and I look good.

    Need to get braces or the invisiliner next but I am proud of them...and hey, I am a BIG smiler...

  19. I have had two crowns done by Dr Jerry Stahl. He is now in the process of doing a front tooth implant. He is a great dentist and passionate about his work. He also gives dental classes for new dentist and in two months time is going to Israel to do voluntary dental work for two weeks. If you fear dentist, I can recommend Dr. Jerry

  20. Dental care is one of those aspects which are usually ignored by an average person. Some people do not even care even brushing their teeth on a daily basis. Flossing is also considered to be quite a tedious activity and is neglected by many people.

    1.  @HCG In addition to fear of feeling much pain, the cost of dental treatments is what keeps most people from having their gum and teeth problems cured. For this reasons, they consult specialists only at times of emergency or when the ache they experience becomes uncontrollable.

  23. I am sort of person who never compromise for the smile. As it always add charm to one's face. Dental care now-days are the important aspect of life.

  24. Great article, Randy; I agree, there's no reason to fear the dentist. My husband has been wanting to get some cosmetic dentistry done, but he has slight dental anxiety. We're trying to find a clinic where he feels comfortable, and has the option of sedation. Hopefully we can find a clinic soon!

  25. My son is going into the military and needs some dental work done before he leaves.  He has never had his wisdom teeth taken out.  How quick is the recovery time for healing from wisdom teeth?  If I recall correctly, he deploys in a month.

  26. Being able to have a great smile really is a great way to ensure that you have a high self esteem. That is something that really sticks out to me when it comes to understanding why healthy teeth are so important. Being able to go to the dentist for me is a great way to see if I'm doing what I need to take care of my teeth. Thank you for sharing. http://www.familydentistingresham.com

  27. I agree that getting chipped or cracked teeth taken care of can give your confidence a huge boost.  One of the first things people notice about someone when they talk is their teeth.  You will give off a much better image if your teeth are well kept.  Maybe I will see a cosmetic dentist soon for some whitening.

  28. Dental care is an essential aspect of our general health,
    but it is often overlooked. Going to your http://voyagermed.com/
    for dental checkups will not only keep your teeth in good shape, but also your
    overall health. There are many diseases that can be avoided if you have good oral
    health.

  29. I completely agree that your teeth are very important, even when it comes to being confident with yourself! I remember that I was really insecure about my self previous to braces. But now I have no problem flashing my smile at anyone! I haven't had a dentist appointment in a while, and I want to get a check up really soon!

    world won't miss me and I share this with you in hopes that you can all
    learn to shut off from the norm sometimes. I've learned it's in the
    quiet times that you grow the most.

  31. Having a nice set of chompers helps to improve your self-confidence and
    overall health. It's difficult to enjoy your good when your teeth in
    poor condition too, and most of us love to eat.

    18. Admittedly, the first time I went to the dentist was when I was 24. (There may have been once or twice as a child but I do not recall).

      Had massive tooth pain but because I heard the dreadful story from others, I refrained from going myself.

      Until it got so bad, so much pain that I had no choice.

      I even asked my mommy to come with me 8). Yes, I was a big baby in this case.

      I remember sitting in the chair, looking at mommy and having the dentist sticking weird things in my mouth. Wanted to gag, vomit and cause a racket.

      But surprisingly, 3 root canals later I was fine. I wasn't even sure what pain people were talking about or why people were scared to go to the dentist (even if I didn't get enough anesthesia and felt the drilling for a moment or two before she gave me more)...

      Ever since then, I am a big fan. Goes well with my weight loss 8) and I look good.

      Need to get braces or the invisiliner next but I am proud of them...and hey, I am a BIG smiler...

    19. I have had two crowns done by Dr Jerry Stahl. He is now in the process of doing a front tooth implant. He is a great dentist and passionate about his work. He also gives dental classes for new dentist and in two months time is going to Israel to do voluntary dental work for two weeks. If you fear dentist, I can recommend Dr. Jerry

    20. Dental care is one of those aspects which are usually ignored by an average person. Some people do not even care even brushing their teeth on a daily basis. Flossing is also considered to be quite a tedious activity and is neglected by many people.

      1.  @HCG In addition to fear of feeling much pain, the cost of dental treatments is what keeps most people from having their gum and teeth problems cured. For this reasons, they consult specialists only at times of emergency or when the ache they experience becomes uncontrollable.

    23. I am sort of person who never compromise for the smile. As it always add charm to one's face. Dental care now-days are the important aspect of life.

    24. Great article, Randy; I agree, there's no reason to fear the dentist. My husband has been wanting to get some cosmetic dentistry done, but he has slight dental anxiety. We're trying to find a clinic where he feels comfortable, and has the option of sedation. Hopefully we can find a clinic soon!

    25. My son is going into the military and needs some dental work done before he leaves.  He has never had his wisdom teeth taken out.  How quick is the recovery time for healing from wisdom teeth?  If I recall correctly, he deploys in a month.

    26. Being able to have a great smile really is a great way to ensure that you have a high self esteem. That is something that really sticks out to me when it comes to understanding why healthy teeth are so important. Being able to go to the dentist for me is a great way to see if I'm doing what I need to take care of my teeth. Thank you for sharing. http://www.familydentistingresham.com

    27. I agree that getting chipped or cracked teeth taken care of can give your confidence a huge boost.  One of the first things people notice about someone when they talk is their teeth.  You will give off a much better image if your teeth are well kept.  Maybe I will see a cosmetic dentist soon for some whitening.

    28. Dental care is an essential aspect of our general health,
      but it is often overlooked. Going to your http://voyagermed.com/
      for dental checkups will not only keep your teeth in good shape, but also your
      overall health. There are many diseases that can be avoided if you have good oral
      health.

    29. I completely agree that your teeth are very important, even when it comes to being confident with yourself! I remember that I was really insecure about my self previous to braces. But now I have no problem flashing my smile at anyone! I haven't had a dentist appointment in a while, and I want to get a check up really soon!

    30. Looking forward to enjoying the food, shopping and culture. I'm sure the
      world won't miss me and I share this with you in hopes that you can all
      learn to shut off from the norm sometimes. I've learned it's in the
      quiet times that you grow the most.

    31. Having a nice set of chompers helps to improve your self-confidence and
      overall health. It's difficult to enjoy your good when your teeth in
      poor condition too, and most of us love to eat.
