Gum disease and tooth decay are the major causes of tooth loss. Both result from bacterial infections and poor nutrition and are entirely preventable. This book gives a step-by-step approach for restoring teeth and healthy gums and maintaining them, with a major emphasis on prevention. Prevention is the only practical and cost-effective way to keep your teeth all your life. The book also discusses in detail three of the major controversies facing the dental consumer today: "silver" (amalgam) fillings, non-surgical treatment for gum disease, and fluoride. Dr. David Kennedy has lectured internationally to dentists and professionals on preventive and restorative dentistry and on the hazards of mercury and fluoride, and is the current President of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.
