So I was eating an apple yesterday and apparently chipped my tooth.. a small piece of the outer layer broke off and the red interior is visible. I am not really sure what to do about this, so I set up a dentist appointment to get it check out. Has anyone had any experience with such a thing?
I have a feeling it may be due to the fact that I have been slacking on my greens the past few months. But I'm wondering if this should get it filled, or if I should consider just leaving it alone. It doesn't hurt at all, but apparently having the pulp exposed is somewhat serious.
This happened to me multiple times, I used to this was my gums receding and eventually after more of these spots came up i went to see a dentist and they told me they were cavities.
Did you just get them filled or leave them alone?
got them filled, i do know you can reverse and heal tooth decay but when i researched the subject i found out that vitamin D plays a big role in bone health and can help reverse tooth decay. Where i live I only get 1 day a week of sunshine if im lucky, there is consistent sunshine for 4 months out of the year so thats no chance i can get enough vitamin D form the sun.
I've chipped a few teeth over the years, mostly from rocks in rice and lentils :/ That was years ago and I've never done anything about them and haven't had any problems.
I think it has much to do with not getting enough greens. Your teeth are looking a little transparent. I would start eating tons of greens and stuff a little piece of Comfrey leaf in the hole after eating, and replace with fresh after each meal. If you have access to breadfruit you can use the latex as a temporary filling. clean the tooth well and dry it out then drip the liquid latex(from a breadfruit) into the hole. wait a few minutes with your mouth open so it will dry nicely. Many times people have had enamel grow back when its not too badly damaged.
