Beverly Hills, Calif., Nov. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Celebrity dentist and bestselling author Dr. Kourosh Maddahi announces today the official release of his latest book, "The Hidden Epidemic: Restoring Oral Health, One Smile at a Time," now available on The text, which focuses on the underexplored connection between oral and whole body health, tackles a variety of pertinent topics, ranging from juicing to antibacterial products.

Following the success of his Amazon bestseller, "Anti-Aging Dentistry: Restoring Youth, One Smile At a Time," Dr. Maddahi delivers fans a fresh perspective on modern oral health trends with his newest book release. "The Hidden Epidemic: Restoring Oral Health, One Smile at a Time" goes beyond the cosmetic issues discussed in the dentist's first book, touching on the more serious health dangers that may be lurking behind seemingly harmless everyday habits and oral symptoms.

"Most people think of bad breath as nothing more than an embarrassing mishap. However, in realty, many common oral symptoms may actually be red flags pointing us toward much more serious conditions," says Dr. Maddahi. "My hope in composing this text was to empower individuals to take control of their health, starting with their mouth."

In addition to addressing the potential complications and warning signs to look for when dealing with common oral issues, such as bad breath, bleeding gums, and weakened enamel, the esteemed dentist also reveals several surprisingly harmful habits (e.g. gargling with antibacterial mouthwash) that have long been touted as healthy.

"Things like teeth whitening and juicing have become widely popular in America," says Dr. Maddahi. "What many people don't realize though is these lifestyle choices are wreaking havoc on our oral health. As an example, the harsh chemicals used in teeth whitening products either strip or wear down the enamel of teeth, causing tooth sensitivity, which can often lead to unnecessary dental work.

Even more significant is the epidemic of dry mouth, which has become prominent due to the increase in daily-use medication by the population at large. Dry mouth is a side effect of over 400 medications on the market, and it causes rampant decay inside the mouth if left untreated. I cover this subject extensively in The Hidden Epidemic in an effort to gain exposure to this ever-growing issue. My goal was to provide readers with a number of natural alternatives proven to deliver significant results, without the potential for harm."

Readers of "The Hidden Epidemic: Restoring Oral Health, One Smile at a Time" can expect a detailed look at not only potential concerns, but also a wide range of solutions to their oral and whole body health issues. And yes, Dr. Maddahi will even explain how to whiten teeth with broccoli.
