Dentists Fail - Your Health Suffers

Feb 11, 2008
You're at risk. The cost could be your teeth, or even your life. Your dentist knows it, but hasn't been able fix it. You're completely unaware. There's no pain, so it's hard to get your attention. Many problems have no pain, like diabetes, high blood pressure, glaucoma, or even cancer. This is serious. I'm a dentist. I know.

You're in denial. Your dentist's attempts to help you understand your problem, for the most part, is a waste of time. You don't believe him. Maybe it will happen to someone else, but not me. Trying to teach a solution to someone who doesn't believe they have a problem is like trying to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time, and annoys the pig.

There's even a bigger problem. The solution to your problem isn't fun. It's painful, annoying, and inconvenient. When the cure hurts worse than the disease, there's a big problem. The solution doesn't have to hurt.

Let's see if we understand the facts. There is a serious dental problem which doesn't hurt, that can be solved with a solution that does hurt. And we, as dentists, can't understand why people aren't jumping to fix the problem they don't believe they have. It's crazy. Dentists, like me, need lessons in human nature and communication. Then we need to discover a simple, easy, comfortable solution. Here it is.

The first step is to help you understand you really do have a problem. Yes, I'm talking to you. The problem is bacteria and toxins building in between your teeth and under your gums. That part of the problem you may already know. You probably even know that this causes cavities and gum disease, and that it could destroy your teeth and ruin your beautiful crowns, bridges, veneers, or other dentistry.

But you probably didn't know that it also affects your heart, strokes, diabetes, and more. This is serious. This can be life threatening, especially if you have other factors, which most of us do. So the first step is to accept the fact that you have a problem.

The second step is to find the simple, easy, and comfortable solution. The remedy dentists have preached for years has involved brushing and flossing. The brushing isn't too bad, but the flossing is painful, the floss frays, the teeth are too tight, you can't get under your bridges, you don't like putting your fingers in your mouth, you cut the corners of your mouth, your gums bleed, and you just hate to do it. I hear you. I'm just like you.

I think it's crazy that dentists keep trying to get people to floss, when we know very well you aren't going to. And those few people who floss regularly rarely do it correctly. I see what debris you leave behind every check-up. It's very technique sensitive. So what's the solution?

There's a method for removing the bacteria and toxins from in between your teeth called Directed Water Irrigation. It's not just rinsing your teeth with a water jet. It involves aiming a warm water jet in between your teeth and holding the stream for a minimum of five full seconds. You can lean over your sink or do it in the shower. There's an amazing improvement when you brush and use directed water irrigation, instead of brush and floss.

As a practicing dentist, I see the difference every week. If you want fresher breath, more confidence, better check-ups, and better health, start using directed water irrigation daily. You won't believe how clean you feel.
