You are about to view some startling material, most of which you may never have seen before, but probably should have. I have tried to keep the integrity of the following articles and other works intact. In doing so, however, some resource information may no longer be current. As work on this site progresses, resource information will be updated. If you have any pertinent questions or comments, please inquire.
It should be made clear that much of the the information presented here was written by Dr. Robert O. Nara in the 1970's and 1980's. This site is a compilation of some of his materials with permission - but was not produced by Dr. Nara, now retired from practice.
While this information may have been written a while back, it remains as valid in its application as it did when first presented to the world for individuals wishing to take more personal responsibility for their own oral health without leaving that solely up to the professionals. Common sense is common sense.
It should be noted that we are not concerned with restorative techniques, rather, in preventive techniques. Therefore the reader should not expect to locate information on dental office products and techniques such as scaling, drilling, caps, crowns, implants, dentures, fillings, surgery, etc.--nor do we provide that information and ask that the reader not write to OraMedia requesting information on personal conditions. We are not professionals, nor do we have access to your dental records and will/could not dispense that type of advice. The purpose of this site is to present information based on the works of Dr. Nara and others, and it is expected that the reader will be able to make better informed decisions on his or her oral health and treatment based on that information.
Further, while there may be or have been professionals in the field practicing according Dr. Nara's materials (Oramedics Fellows) in the past, we are not aware of them and unfortunately cannot provide their whereabouts. There is a list, however, of dentists promoting non-surgical treatment and microbiological testing and monitoring according to the works of Dr. Paul Keyes, founder of International Dental Health Foundation (IDHF). That list is available at the IDHF site: http://members.aol.com/idhf/byzip.htm. There is also a list of Mercury Free and Biological Dentists at: http://www.talkinternational.com/mfdsindex1.htm.
Thank you and browse on...

"In my opinion the whole thing boils down to one simple fact: The dental establishment is scared to death that the public is going to realize that the entire profession has been making a living by repairing the results of a disease they could have been curing all along!"
"They're your teeth. They're going to be either with you or not with you for the rest of your life. The person that is in control is you. You are in charge of your own dental destiny. The more you rely on yourself and the less you rely on the dentist, the more likely you will wind up with teeth at a ripe old age. You're going to have to do a little homework, you're going to have to study a little bit, you're going to have to change your frame of reference, and you're going to have to say, well maybe there is a better way."
"Make it a goal to become 'dentally self-sufficient' this year. Periodontal disease progression can be painless so you may not even be aware of its presence. Decide to keep all of your natural teeth in your mouth and your 'dental dollars' in your pocket."
"Dr. Johansen cautioned against being lulled into
that sugarless gum is really devoid of tooth-decaying sugar. "Sugarless
gum isn't sugarless. It' is sucroseless. If you look at the label, you
will see that it says, on most of them, 60 percent carbohydrates. That
can be just as bad as sugar. The bacteria that cause decay can survive
and multiply on those carbohydrates."

"In mouths where bacteria toxins run high, the decay process is also represented, so by eliminating the bacterial waste products from the teeth and gums the decay process stops, as well as gums and bone healing."
