Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic dental technique that involves swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth. Coconut oil is most commonly used.

1️⃣ Use about 1 tablespoon of oil
2️⃣ Swish around your mouth for 20 minutes (when you're getting ready is a great time to do this, just don't spit it down the drain!)
3️⃣ Brush and floss as usual

Why do airway centered disorders so often go undiagnosed? 🤔

Airway centered disorder (ACD) is the hidden airway problem, often not recognized and expressed as other chronic health, developmental, educational and performance issues. When not recognized, the expressions of ACD are treated and the underlying disorder remains – to be expressed yet again in another form.

Signs of ACD can include: ➡️ ADD/ADHD
➡️ Jaw pain
➡️ Mouth breathing
➡️ Weight problems

If you feel you may have an ACD, contact our office, 🔗 link in bio.

Around 12,000 years ago, before the development of agriculture, humans’ skulls and faces were much more ape-like, with wide jaws and rounded facial structures.

This allowed for large nasal openings through the sinuses, plenty of room for the tongue, and a lower jaw that could comfortably rest in a forward position, which created open airways in the throat.

But what happened?

Do you feel like you’re always having to deal with multiple health issues? 😷

Maybe you have trouble sleeping, or you wake up without feeling refreshed. Perhaps you always have a morning headache, or have difficulty concentrating. And your digestion hasn’t been good for a while – you feel bloated most days, and worry you’ve developed sensitivity to some of your favorite foods.

What if I told you that your gut and brain are connected, and that your gut could be contributing to your lack of sleep? And that if we look at your health systemically, we might find that you are also dealing with a sleep airway disorder? Everything in your body is linked, and your airway has a surprising effect on your gut – and your gut has a huge influence on your health. ➡️ Click the link in our bio to find out how your gut influences your health.

Does a lack of sleep cause Alzheimer's?

Lack of sleep is a risk factor associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and it’s down to several mechanisms within your body. At night, when you sleep, you’re not only resting your body, your brain actually cleans and looks after itself!
A healthy circadian rhythm allows for the process of autophagy to take place efficiently – where cellular parts are recycled in the brain. When you sleep, a growth hormone called somatotropin gets to work, triggering the repair and growth of brain cells.

Everyone has had a night of terrible sleep and seen its effects on their face and body. The old adage about getting enough ‘beauty sleep’ comes from the fact that so many rejuvenating processes occur in the deep stages of sleep. As we age and our airways shrink, we get less restorative oxygen, which causes sleep to become less healing.

With Juvabite, the height of the lower third of your face is opened allowing better oxygen flow and more restorative sleep.

Are you aware that the health of your mouth reflects the health of your body and mind?

Have you heard that preventing heart disease, dementia and diabetes starts in the mouth?

That is correct. The mouth is the entry point not only for food but also for bacteria that end up in your gut, and both small and large intestines. Ancient healers from India and China, and now Germany look at the tongue as an indicator of stomach, kidney, lung and spleen health.

Our best in class and top rated NYC oral systemic wellness hygienist is able to identify through a simple salivary test whether patients are harboring bad bacteria or bugs that have been implicated to cause cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and even birth complications.

Headaches and pain are the most common complaints from those afflicted with TMJ. Around 80% of patients with a TMJ disorder complain of a debilitating headache, and over 40% report some kind of facial pain.

Your TMJ condition may unfortunately only worsen with time if you do not seek treatment from a TMJ specialist doctor or dentist. Without proper TMJ treatment you will experience increasing joint damage or inflammation, and further wear and breakdown of your teeth, which typically leads to increases in muscle contraction and consequently increased head, neck and facial pain.

If you think you may have TMJ or are experiencing jaw and facial pain, contact our office or click the link in our bio.

More than 85% of mammalian species are polyphasic sleepers, meaning that they sleep for short periods throughout the day. Humans are part of the minority of monophasic sleepers, meaning that our days are divided into two distinct periods, one for sleep and one for wakefulness. It is not clear that this is the natural sleep pattern of humans. Young children and elderly persons nap, for example, and napping is a very important aspect of many cultures.

Naps can restore alertness, enhance performance, and reduce mistakes and accidents. A study at NASA on sleepy military pilots and astronauts found that a 40-minute nap improved performance by 34% and alertness 100%. For more on the benefits of naps, click the link in our bio.
