Patients spend millions of dollars each year on diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. A practicing dentist and expert witness with over twenty-five years of experience takes a behind-the-scenes look at the world of dentistry while teaching about the importance of good occlusion, how orthodontists have failed their patients, and the many shortfalls of periodontics. David DiBenedetto, DMD, claims that occlusion-how our teeth meet when our jaws are brought together-is of crucial importance to dental health. He also states that the field of orthodontics continues to concern itself about aesthetics, not on how jaws function, even though studies illustrate that orthodontic treatment does not increase the chances of keeping teeth later in life. Dr. DiBenedetto has made it his life's work to educate dental patients on the importance overall health plays in determining dental health and in what treatment works best for periodontal disease. You will learn: How periodontists and orthodontists think How the jaw works How to determine what you want from your orthodontist How you can keep your teeth and gums healthy Case histories, photographs, and diagrams are provided in this informative guidebook that will help explore your difficult dental questions in a logical manner.

The Dental Diet

The Surprising Link between Your Teeth, Real Food, and Life-Changing Natural Health

Throughout the years, dental health has often been characterized as a reflection of our overall health, where bad oral health results from issues with other parts of our body. But what if we flipped the paradigm? What if we thought about dental health as the foundation for our physical health as a whole? Dr. Steven Lin, an experienced dentist and the world’s first dental nutritionist, has analyzed our ancestral traditions, epigenetics, gut health, and the microbiome in order to develop food-based principles for a literal top-down holistic health approach. Merging dental and nutritional science, Dr. Lin lays out the dietary program that can help ensure you won’t need dental fillings or cholesterol medications —and give you the resources to raise kids who develop naturally straight teeth. With our mouth as the gatekeeper of our gut, keeping our oral microbiome balanced will create a healthy body through a healthy mouth. Dr. Lin arms you with a 40-day meal plan, complete with the Dental Diet food pyramid, exercises for the mouth, recipes, and cooking techniques to help you easily and successfully implement his techniques into your everyday life. The tools to improve overall wellness levels and reverse disease are closer than we think —in our markets, in our pantries, and, most frequently, in our mouths —if not just a well-chosen bite or two away.

Each autumn, one of nature's most magnificent dramas plays out when striped bass undertake a journey, from the northeastern United States to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, in search of food and warmer seas. Writer and angler David DiBenedetto followed this great migration -- the fall run -- for three months in the autumn of 2001. On the Run offers vivid portrayals of the zany and obsessive characters DiBenedetto met on his travels -- including the country's most daring fisherman, an underwater videographer who chucked his corporate job in favor of filming striped bass, and the reclusive angler who claims that catching the world-record striper in 1982 sent his life into a tailspin. Along his route, DiBenedetto also delves into the natural history and biology of this great game fish, and depicts the colorful cultures of the seaside communities where the striped bass reigns supreme.
