Dr. Maddahi’s first book, Anti-Aging Dentistry, reached No. 1 status on Amazon in 2014 and maintained Dr. Maddahi’s position as one of the leading experts in cosmetic dentistry. In Hidden Epidemic, Dr. Maddahi provides information about the hidden epidemics affecting dental health in an easy-to-read format that allows everyone to understand how these diseases can strike and how to prevent them. Additionally, Dr. Maddahi discusses how certain oral health issues may impact other parts of the body. According to the book, many conditions are increasing due to poor oral hygiene habits and a lack of knowledge as well as an increased daily use of maintenance medications.
The Hidden Epidemic: Restoring Oral Health, One Smile at a Time deals with a number of oral health issues, including tooth sensitivity and gum disease as well as dry mouth. The book also discusses the relationship between chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes and a lack of proper oral care. The book helps readers understand what they can do to prevent or treat these oral health issues and possibly avoid expensive and unnecessary dental work.
“As dentists, we are seeing an explosion of oral health problems,” notes Dr. Maddahi. “Because many of these issues are not immediately life-threatening, they do not receive the same attention as other diseases. However, if left untreated, these oral health issues can be every bit as detrimental to overall health and quality of life as many other illnesses.”
