I've moved the discussion from the original Yahoo Groups to this location in order to attempt the categorization of discussion a little better. The purpose of the OraMedia site was to disseminate the works of Dr. Robert O. Nara (DDS)( see 'Freedom from Dental Disease' ). It would be best to become acquainted with some of his work and points of view on oral health before getting involved here. In addition, Dr. Nara wrote a couple of very popular books on the subject, 'Money by the Mouthful' and 'How to Become Dentally Self Sufficient.' At the very least, please read 'The 7 Factors Transcript,' which covers the 7 factors or principles Dr. Nara set up as guides for keeping our teeth healthy for life. This is a transcript of the last speech he gave with the National Health Federation in San Francisco, 1986, and covers the following:
1. Nutrition 2. Frame of Reference 3. Options 4. Knowledge 5. Understanding the biological balance 6. Taking Action 7. Money
The discussions, therefore, will be broken down into those categories, so if you are going to write about Vitamin D, as it relates to oral health, then post in the 'Nutrition' Subject thread and so on. This interface has a search function, so you are encouraged to use it, as time goes by, to see if your question to the group has already been covered. If you want to view the subjects in a given category, click on "Switch to Threaded Style" just below here.
Hi, I have a heart murmur and after an echocardiogram was told that I should pre-medicate before dental cleanings. It's a real pain in the can and each time I do it, I have to take probiotics and feel crappy afterwards.
I bought an irrigator, then read AFTER using it, that irrigators aren't recommended by traditional dentists because they can push the bacteria further under the gumline. I have a few deep pockets -- 5mm -- and have had one deep scaling and take good care of my teeth.
I wanted to use an irrigator, in hopes of making the pockets shallower. Do gums ever re-attach?
What are the more naturopathic dentists saying about irrigation for people with heart murmurs?
