Baton Rouge Dentist Encourages Patients To Quit Smoking

According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 15% of the US population are smokers, about thirty-six million people.  These individuals are at risk for serious dental issues attributed to smoking. Tobacco products limit your teeth ability to fight off infection. Thus the plaque and bacteria become more prevalent and cause problems such a losing teeth and irritated gums. Dental treatments are counteracted by the effects of smoking as the damage continues to mount.

Losing teeth is not their only problem. Smoking-related mouth cancer is on the rise. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, approximately 40,000 U.S. citizens are diagnosed with oral cancer resulting from smoking.  Symptoms of oral cancer include a white or red patch in the mouth. The patient may have difficulty chewing or swallowing. Sometimes there is numbness in the jaw or ear pain. The National Institutes of Health recommends that anyone who is experiencing these symptoms should see their dentist for the appropriate referrals. Early detection is the key to a positive outcome.

If you are a smoker, before you face a serious diagnosis, this dentist can develop a treatment plan for your oral health including quitting all tobacco products.  Click here to visit the dentist.

Seppapeptase: A Healthy Alternative For Pain

Serrapeptase is a healthy alternative to commonly used NSAIDs for pain relief.  This enzyme is extracted from the gut of silkworms. The silkworms produce this enzyme to digest the Mulberry leaves that it feeds on and to bore a  hole in their tough cocoon to release the butterfly.

After many successful clinical trials and experiments, Serrapeptase is administered in Germany and Asia as a standard medication. The enzyme activity of Serrapeptase is phenomenal.  It is a safe and efficient arterial chelation agent. When administering  Serrapeptase to his cardiac patients, Dr. Napier, a German research scientist, noted that this enzyme dissolved the arterial plaque thus avoiding the occurrence of severe heart attacks.  In another incident, a female patient was scheduled to have her arm amputated. After treatment with Serrapeptase, the woman recovered without the need for surgery.

As an incredibly powerful natural anti-inflammatory agent, Serrapeptase can be administered to treat all forms of inflammation without the use of steroids.  It has a 25-year history in Asia and Europe as is known in the United States as a supplement. Serrapeptase will digest cysts,  all non-living tissue, blood clots, arterial blockages, and inflammation.  Many doctors feel Serrapeptase is more effective than some traditional medicine because it does not have any dangerous side effects.

Serrapeptase has successfully treated arthritis,  fibrocystic breast disease, sinus problems, cardiovascular issues, lung problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, and some injuries. For more information, visit
