My teeth haven't been sensitive till about a month ago and now that I look in the mirror I can actually see exposed dentin on two of the teeth on the left side of my mouth! Those two teeth I have to brush crazy slow cause if I just barely touch a bristle to the exposed part it hurts like you have no idea.
I think my date eating has caused a little bit of this. I usually eat dates before bed and I have noticed my teeth turning sensitive as I eat them or briefly after eating them. I eat them whole by the way.
I also eat about ten oranges everyday as well. I haven't felt my teeth get sensitive while eating those, but I do blend my oranges with my greens so maybe that helps.
Anyone have any suggestions on what I should do to improve my teeth and hopefully grow back my enamel? I really don't want to give up my oranges and dates. They are a big part of my diet and if I took them out I'd pretty much turn into a banana only guy.
I really hope this improves. There are a few people who are really betting on this diet to hurt me in some way and I don't want to give them any satisfaction.
Change your lifestyle bro.
Hang around winners. Get the early nights. Get fit. Get sun. Drug free.
Thanks for the good vibes Harley. For the most part I'm getting good sleep, working out, and drug free of course. Sun is the hard part though. I live in Washington state.
Maybe I should look at a sun lamp?
I don't know about those.. I had one and those things I think are a little dangerous. Unless they've revamped them some.
They get super hot.
Brian I live there and it was sunny all week in Tacoma! Been outside reading and chillin' for most of the day.
I think I will try this yeah. I just got some zahidi dates from bautista too and they are pretty firm so dateroade would probably be easier to eat.
How much dates do you mix with your bananas when you make dateroade? Like three parts bananas, one part dates?
Hi Brian :)
My teeth are awful from years of not flossing and eating high fat cooked vegan food. Since trying to go lfrv but only succeeding half the time and still drinking coffee they have gotten really bad really fast. I now realise I have got to ditch the coffee and go 100% lfrv to save my teeth. The one thing that has helped me is swishing with b.soda and salt and flossing twice a day. I am also going to get braces because my teeth are very badly overcrowded.
It is really difficult for me to have ripe fruit all the time and I think eating unripe fruit is really bad for your teeth. So I think the next beat thing is dateroade. If I were you I would drink the dates and oranges for a while, floss and swish with salt and b.soda.
Are you 100% lvrv?
I have been blending my oranges. They are juicy, but the blended mix is fairly thick so a good bit of chewing still.
Swishing with salt and baking soda sound okay. I suppose I'm not ingesting them so its cool. I will try anything at this point.
I am 100% lfrv. I have been since I started about 4 months ago.
Re: the exposed nerve..
I wouldn't touch there w/ a brush or anything at all.
I've had sensitivity like this and if I left it for a while, it gets better. You generally don't want to brush those new cells away as tissue will want to form there.
I noticed a cavity the other day too i think its a cavity and my two teeth hurts and got sensitive since ive added a lot of dates to my died.
Do you rinse out your mouth after all those acidic oranges?
I don't. But will do from now on!
