Dental Health Books Worth Reading

Dental Health Books Worth Reading. 

I thought it would be fun to list these dental health books that are worth reading.   The authors of these books have challenged the standard preconceived notions about dental health.   They are all interesting and speak from interesting perspectives.

1.  Root Canal Cover Up - George Meinig, DDS.  Dr. Meinig explains one of the biggest problems with root canals.   If you have or are about to get a root canal, it would be to your benefit to read this book and understand what kind of problems can occur.    This is wonderful book from a doctor with tons of experience, just like the book above.  

If you care about dental health, this is a must read.    Same Topic:  There is a documentary called "Root Cause" - if you are worried about root canals, whether you have had one or it is being recommended to you, you should probably watch this documentary.   

2.  Cure Tooth Decay  - Ramiel Nagel and Timothy Gallagher, DDS.  This book is all about nutritional changes that can impact your dental health.    I have some objections to this book.  

I don't agree with everything in this book.   But, the general information and "most" of the nutritional information is good.   I would say this:  Don't eat raw meats.  Don't eat raw organ meats.  Don't use 'fermented' cod liver oil.   Regular cod liver oil is fine.   Other than that, most of this book has good information in it.  

3.  Oral Health Bible -  Dr. Bonner.  Great insight into your dental health.

4.  The Dental Diet -  Dr. Steve Lin discusses one of the most hidden aspects of your dental health - The Dental Diet!  

5.  What You Should Know About Gum Disease - A Layman's Guide To Fighting Gum Disease

Finally,  at the risk of sounding self-serving I have to mention my own book.  This is because gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss bar none.   Lot's of people lose a tooth or teeth to gum disease.  They get a denture or implant and still don't know the root cause of their problem.  This ignorance can lead to more lost teeth and more expense.

Therefore, I think my book is very important and every family should have a copy.


PS:  There is also this free guide:  How To Stop Gum Disease In 4 Easy Steps:  Get your copy here. 

My favorite tool for dental health promotion at home.
