Dr. Michael Roizen is Chair of the Wellness Institute and Chief Wellness Officer at the Cleveland Clinic, ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the number 1 cardiac care hospital in the world for the last 18 years.

He and Dr. Mike Milligan discuss the purpose of the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute and why “wellness and prevention of disease” is so important. Dr. Roizen believes in the need to replace the “treat after you get sick” model with the need to minimize systemic inflammation through good oral health.

Dr. Michael Roizen says focusing on WELLNESS AND PREVENTION IS THE KEY TO SAVING COSTS IN HEALTHCARE. Dr. Roizen sees the dental profession as a highly credible army of healthcare providers who can lead the wellness/prevention movement in the United States and throughout the world.


In this video, Dr. Duane Keller, the founder of PerioProtect, tells your patients the importance of treating their gum disease to help prevent many systemic illnesses, and how the Perio Protect method very effectively controls the disease-causing bacteria at the source. Perio Protect therapy follows the American Medical Association guidelines and the American Association of Wound Care guidelines.

your hand through which people grind bacteria into their blood stream every time they eat. By treating only gum disease, 29 of 32 people after 14 days had their systemic inflammatory markers return to NORMAL! Studies show Perio Protect kills nearly 100% of the pathogenic bacteria, while leaving the good bacteria intact that you find in healthy gum tissue. Perio Protect is an extremely effective therapy for people with many types of gum disease. Perio Protect is excellent for the maintenance of healthy gums and bone after periodontal therapy and for patients with dental implants.

Running Time: 3 min. 12 sec.


Dr. Jonathan Parker and Dr. Mike Milligan discuss what you need to know about sleep apnea, and why you should seek treatment if you or someone you are close to has snoring or sleep disordered breathing problems.

Below, Richard Bonato, PhD, sleep researcher and a registered sleep technologist, says, “Sleep apnea causes you to die earlier. People with sleep apnea have a much higher risk for heart attack, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, gastro-esophageal reflux, gout, and a number of other disorders”. People that have sleep apnea don’t breath properly at night.


“We can go weeks without food, days without water, but only a few minutes without air”, says Dr. Bonato. He discusses the sleep dentist’s role in screening for sleep apnea, including visual exam showing scalloped tongue, abfractions, wear on teeth, etc; and questionnaires including snoring and Epworth Sleepiness Scale. He discusses home sleep testing, referral to a physician and to a sleep center, and the dentist’s role in treating sleep apnea.

Dr. James Winde, MD, Family Physician and Sleep Specialist, tells your patients what sleep apnea is, some of the health consequences, and treatment options.
Below, Dr. Lon Jones talked to us about his approach to osteopathy, and the nasal spray he offers to help with nasal infections which uses Xylitol. By keeping the nasal passages clear, it helps prevent mouth breathing, a problem that leads to poor tongue position, deviate swallowing pattern, high vaulted palate and airway problems, crooked teeth, speech problems and other concerns.

<br/ ><br/ >

Xylitol sprayed into the back of the nose also helps with inner ear infections, which is critical in babies age 6 months gestation to 2 years old, the time that they learn sounds to allow them to learn and speak better. It helps prevent needing tubes in their ears. Everyone all ages should use xylitol nasal spray: babies at every diaper change, and adults at least twice daily – morning and night. The technique Dr. Jones recommends for adults, and for babies at every diaper change, is at approximately 11 minutes into the video.

The Oral Systemic Link – Cavities/Reparative Dentistry

________________________________________________________________________

Running Time: 03 min. 40 secs.


Dr. Kim Kutsch says that dental cavities (tooth decay) is an epidemic, and it is increasing in all age groups. It is a biofilm disease with multiple bacterial pathogens and it results from long periods of low pH (acid) in the mouth which dissolve the calcium and phosphate out of the teeth. The cavity-causing pathogenic bacteria can only thrive in an acidic environment; and much of what we eat and drink promotes the acidic pH in our mouths.

The CariFree system changes the acidic pH in our mouth to a more neutral pH, and helps us keep it there through continued use.

<br/ ><br/ >

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that creates an environment in which bacteria that cause cavities and periodontal disease can’t adhere, so are washed away. Using about 1 gram or less of Xylitol at least five times per day greatly reduces cavities and periodontal disease. Dr. Lon Jones explains how.

“I am Judith Miklossy. I am from Switzerland, and I am the director of the International Alzheimer’s Research Center. And the goal of this research center is to show the involvement of spirochetes in Alzheimer’s disease. And to take care of our oral health is extremely important as it was shown that several types of oral spirochetes can be involved and can be found in the brain in Alzheimer’s disease. So take care of your oral health, as oral spirochetes can get to the brain and cause Dementia.”


In this next video, Dr. Miklossy talks more about the connection between oral pathogens and Alzheimer’s Disease

Transcript:

Dr. Mike Milligan:
Hi I’m Dr Mike Milligan. I’m here with Dr Judith Miklossy of Switzerland, and the International Alzheimer’s Research Center. Judith thanks so much for being with me.

Dr. Judith Miklossy:
Thank you very much for this invitation.

Dr. Mike Milligan:
OK. Now as we know, the bacteria in the mouth can affect the entire body. One of the worst diseases possible that we all fear probably even more than death itself is Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Running Time: 02 min. 35 sec.

Tell me about the research, the spirochetes that can go from the mouth to the brain and the problems that that can cause,

Dr. Judith Miklossy:
Indeed six different oral periodontal pathogen spirochetes were found to be present in the brain in Alzheimer’s patients so it is extremely important to take care of oral health in order to prevent Dementia.

Dr. Mike Milligan:
Six different bacteria in the mouth were found in the brain in Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Dr. Judith Miklossy:
Yes, six different periodontal pathogen spirochetes were found to be present in the brain in Alzheimer’s patients so this is extremely important to take care of this to prevent it. So recently we have reviewed all the data in respect to the detection of spirochetes in Alzheimer’s disease and the analysis of this data showed a very strong statistical significant association between the spirochetal infection in Alzheimer’s disease and in between them there were these six different oral spirochetes; and in addition oral spirochetes can infect together in the same brain of an Alzheimer’s patient, so this is extremely really important to take care of the oral health.

Dr. Mike Milligan:
Judith thank you so much for all that you do. You are going to impact the health of so many people. We need to get their oral health healthy to help prevent Dementia and Alzheimer’s. We appreciate so much – thank you for being with us, Judith.

Dr. Judith Miklossy:
I think the work that you are doing is extremely important because I think people from different branches of medicine should get together to go faster on this way, and the dental practice will be the most important in order to prevent not only Dementia but also other chronic disorders because you can do it very early.

Dr. Mike Milligan:
Thank you so much, Judith.

Dr. Judith Miklossy:
Thank you very much.
