How about "4 ways to improve your health in 2013 without diet and exercise"?


1.  Sleep better - it's estimated that 1 in 5 Americans suffer with obstructive sleep apnea.  Many of them are told to use a mask (CPAP) to help them sleep better.  Most people hate this mask because it's uncomfortable and they don't sleep well.  There is a better option!  An oral appliance can be made that is comfortable and allows for peaceful sleep.  Dr. Smith is specially trained to make oral appliances.


2.  Eliminate hidden infections - It is estimated that 8 out of 10 Americans will have gum infection at some time in thier life.  The presence of gum infection is a better predictor of a heart attach than high cholesterol.  It is easily detected and treated by a dentist when discovered early, BEFORE the teeth are loose, BEFORE constant bad breath, BEFORE bleeding gums.  Once these signs are present the infection can still be treated easily with a laser.  Antibiotics do not get rid of gum infection!  Dr. Smith can test for and treat hidden gum infection.


3. Reduce or eliminate headaches - 90% of headaches are caused by the jaw being positioned incorrectly.  This can even lead to TJM problems.  A small retainer can be worn to hold the jaw to a better position and decrease (sometimes eliminate) headaches and migraines.  Most people suffer with headaches for decades before they are made aware of this treatment option.  Dr. Smith is specially trained to treat headaches and TMJ problems.


4. Have a VELSCOPE oral cancer screening - Oral cancer is the only type of cancer that is on the rise.  This is because it is very difficult to find early.  A VELSCOPE is a blue light that I shine in the mouth.  It will find oral cancer sometimes 2-3 years BEFORE I am able to see the cancer with my eyes.  Finding oral cancer early is the only way to survive, and the best way to decrease the chance you will have to have your tongue or jaw removed.  HPV is now linked to oral cancer and even very young people who have never smoked are now being dianosed with oral cancer due to the prevelence of HPV.
