Healthy Teeth 'n' Gums
Hello, I’m Dr. Paul Gilbert. This is how my life changed
from traditional dentist to holistic dentist to retired
dentist counseling people how nutrition is the key to
gaining control of their dental health.
My mother was a big influence on my passion for nutrition
and dental health long before I ever considered dentistry as
a career. When I was a young child, my mother would turn on
the radio to listen to Carlton Fredericks, a pioneer nutritionist
who firmly believed that food is your best medicine.
My father was a dentist with a dental office in our home.
Many of his patients had cavities in their teeth, which he
would fix with silver filings. Silver fillings were made by rapidly
mixing a metal powder that was part silver, with pure mercury.
Half the filling material was mercury. So it didn’t take long for
my father’s office and the home to become contaminated with
microscopic droplets of mercury. The tiny droplets of mercury
evaporated into the room air and became invisible and
odorless mercury vapor. No one realized what was
happening. Years later I finally discovered how mercury toxic
I had become from breathing in the highly poisonous mercury
My dental career:
A good education was very important to both my parents. So I decided to enter dental
school, get a professional education and become a dentist, just like my dad. That was in
1958. I’m sure my parents were quite proud of me when I graduated in 1962 from the
dental school at the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia.
I started seeing patients as an army dentist in 1962. Two years later I began my career as
a dentist in private practice. It was a typical, traditional suburban dental practice. Like my
father and most other dentists, I used mercury-silver fillings.
By the late 1970’s, I was beginning to understand how anything that gets into the human
body has either a negative or a positive impact on your health, just as Carlton Fredericks
had said years earlier. My thinking became more holistic, and I decided to completely stop
using silver dental fillings because of all the mercury in them. Fortunately, I was able to
offer my patients safer non-metal tooth colored dental filling materials that had recently
Not using dental fillings with mercury was definitely a milestone in my growing passion for
nutrition and health. I was beginning to practice what would eventually become known as
My health gets messy:
By the early 1980’s, in spite of my determined attempts to remain healthy, I was beginning
to experience the pain of kidney stones. I had already learned that mercury exposure,
even in very small amounts, could eventually make you sick and destroy your health. I
wondered if this unexpected health problem might be in some way connected with
mercury. I was puzzled because I took vitamins every day and I had already stopped using
One answer came from the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, a
science based professional organization I joined in 1985, made up of dentists, physicians,
research scientists and other health care practitioners. While attending meetings and
listening to lectures, I discovered I was still being exposed to mercury. Although I had not
been using mercury fillings for a long time, I was taking them out if patient’s asked me to
remove them from their teeth. I didn’t realize that taking out mercury fillings exposed me to
as much mercury as putting them in.
The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology eventually developed
techniques for safely removing mercury fillings from patients, but that wasn’t until the last
few years of practicing dentistry.
No more ordinary vitamins for me:
The other answer, a holistic solution to my nagging health problem with kidney stones,
came unexpectedly. In 1994, while on vacation with my wife and still searching for a way to
put a stop to the kidney stones, I was introduced to a small food supplement company with
a rather remarkable philosophy. This company believed that the level of health of your
entire body is intimately connected to the quality of the foods you eat. They backed up
that philosophy with a remarkable line of pure, clean super food supplements derived
from natural and organically grown nutrient rich foods.
I wondered if these supplements might help with my kidney stones. Although a bit
skeptical, I thought I would give them a try. I figured, had nothing to lose. This is what
happened to me after I started using them:
- My first realization that these supplements were special was when I began to
experience a noticeable increase in energy, especially in the afternoon.
- Then I became aware of sleeping better, with dreams in vivid color.
- When the company made digestive supplements available, I added them to my diet.
That pretty much put an end to an embarrassing digestive problem I suffered with
since I was a teenager.
- I had a lower back tooth with a cavity. Sometimes dentists get cavities. My dentist
said I should have a root canal because the tooth hurt at times. I believed the nerve
would heal once the cavity was cleaned out and a new crown was placed on my
tooth. After I got the new crown, my tooth healed without ever having a root canal.
- Later I became aware of the fact that I was almost never sick. I rarely experienced a
cold. I have never had the flu. I have never been given a flu vaccine.
- I did have one tooth with a root canal that was done many years ago when I was still
in dental school. Although it was comfortable most of the time, I knew that it was
always a source of germs that my body had to constantly fight off. I finally had the
tooth removed several years ago. The dentist who removed my tooth said he
typically sees bone loss in other patients in the same situation. Much to his
surprise, there wasn’t any in my mouth. He was so impressed he asked the other
dentist in the office to look where my tooth had been a few moments before.
- I had an implant placed so I wouldn’t show a missing tooth when I smiled.
Sometimes implants don’t take, especially if the jaw bone is unhealthy or if some of
some of the bone is missing. I already knew my jaw bone had to be extremely
healthy and none was missing. It was a no-brainer my implant would take. It did.
- My gums are always healthy. They are pink and never bleed. My teeth are just as
tight in my jaws as they were when I was younger. Frankly, I’m glad I’ll never know
how many dental treatments these wonderful supplements helped me avoid.
- Oh, about those kidney stones. The symptoms just slowly vanished.
How could all this have happened? For me there is only one answer. Even though I
thought I had been eating well, the supplements clearly provided badly needed
nourishment that I wasn’t getting before, allowing my body to regenerate and heal.
It’s really that simple.
These powerful super food products provided me with missing nutrients essential to
regaining my health. First, they supplied critical nutrients I absolutely needed to cleanse
my body of years of accumulated toxic substances. Second, they provided my body with
vital nutrients that allowed my body to regenerate and heal.
Even the digestive supplements contribute to the same end result. They free up energy
that normally would be use for digestion, allowing your body to utilize the energy for
regeneration and healing.
Helping you the same way I was helped:
Although I am now fully retired from active dental practice, I am in a unique position to be
your dental adviser-counselor and put you on the path to dental health. I say that with
absolute confidence because of my many years of experience as a holistic dentist and a
user of these special whole food supplements.
The health giving benefits of these natural food supplements extend to every
part of your body, including your teeth and gums. The nutritional support they
provide may make all the difference in how successful you will be resolving your
current dental trouble, whatever it is, and how effectively you will be able to
prevent future dental problems. Pretty good odds considering the supplements
are safe and there are no side effects.
If it weren’t for this natural health food I found years ago, I wouldn’t have the healthy teeth
and gums I still enjoy today. The company that provides the supplements offers a no
questions asked, 90 day money back guarantee. That’s because they are confident you
won’t be disappointed. I feel the same way.
Let me help you. Allow me be your personal health counselor and share the information
that led to my dental health successes. You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain -
perhaps even avoiding painful and costly dental treatment.
