Ep 50 with functional dentistry expert Dr Mark Burhenne

Have you ever heard of mouth taping? I recently posted about it on my Instagram Stories the other week (@healthhackers). I’d seen functional dentistry expert and creator of AsktheDentist.com Dr Mark Burhenne talking about it, so I asked my followers if they wanted me to record a healthHackers episode with him. The result of the vote was a majority YES. Well, here we are.👇

But we don’t just talk about mouth taping. Oh no, Dr B was kind enough to let me quiz him on his expert insights gathered over 35 years as a dentist. Some of it might surprise you. He takes a “microbiome-first” approach to dental health; big on prevention and getting to the root cause of a problem. He’s also the author of ‘The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox.’

In this episode, you’ll hear Dr B’s views on:

🔹how to keep your oral microbiome happy

🔹why it’s better to be a nose-breather than a mouth-breather

🔹mouth taping and why he recommends it

🔹a link between oral health and Alzheimer’s

🔹why using mouthwash is a mistake

🔹what to eat for a healthy mouth

🔹why he uses a hydroxyapatite toothpaste instead of a fluoride-containing paste

🔹insights for healthy-minded parents who can’t figure out why their children need fillings

🔹why he brushes his teeth before breakfast

🔹why you shouldn’t brush straight after a meal

🔹how pregnancy can affect teeth - and what women can do about it

🔹an easy step to help your oral microbiome after a cup of coffee or glass of wine (it’s not brushing)

🔹plus, what it means if you snore

🟥Common sense caution: Anything you hear on healthHackers should not be considered personal or medical advice. You’ve heard it before, so you know the score - always talk to your own health provider about your concerns.👌
