Episode Highlights with Dr. Gerry Curatola, D.D.S.

  • Gum Disease epidemic causal to other diseases: heart attack, diabetes, colorectal cancer, pregnancy complications

  • The prevalence of gum disease indicates inflammation

  • Toothpaste invented by the soap makers, creates imbalance of the microbes and can contribute to disease

  • Revitin made to keep the oral microbiome in balance

  • Four cornerstones of oral health in book Mouth Body Connection. Soon to be a sequel with a 5th cornerstone

  • Cornerstone #1: Avoid chemical and "natural" oral care products: (history of fluoride w/ scientific studies and health concerns) 

  • Cornerstone #2: Nutrition is foundational: alkalize (7.8-7.9 pH), anti-inflammatory, antioxidant (green leafy vegetables, EFA's, Vitamin D3 and K2)

  • Cornerstone #3: Exercise: Yoga, HIT (High intensity training) increasing circulation

  • Cornerstone #4: Management of stress (TMJ, tooth decay, and gum disease all related to stress)

  • Importance of having a Biologic dentist: mercury toxicity - off-gasing (SMART removal), root canals, cavitation's 

  • Dr. Curatola's journey of mercury toxicity and the process of slow and steady chelation needs to be in par

  • Cornerstone #5: (OSA) Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Causes and how to treat. Dr. Felix Liao DDS, CPAP treats symptoms and not the cause 

  • DNA appliance (Vivos) for reshaping the arch of the mouth to address the root cause of sleep apnea. (slow palate expansion) Sleep apnea in children is often misdiagnosed as ADHD, also related to bed wetting

  • 5 things people need to do:

    • (1.) Cone beam scan - check for cavitations must be read by qualified dentist. Dr. Curatola to teach.

    • (2.) Do a home sleep study, easier, disposable. Can be done through virtual consult. See below. 

    • (3.) Remove amalgam fillings and BPA composites. VOCO

    • (4.) Remove infected toot canals and jaw cavitations. (changing from titanium to ceramic or zirconia, -titanium creates endotoxins and inflammation, acts as an antennae to 5G, and blocks meridian)

    • (5.) Support nutrition before, during, and after dental procedures

  • Future of upcoming trainings, how to reach his practice, (see below)
