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.
Try to put green clay on the exposed part of your teeth before going to bed, coating the exposed part with green clay paste. It's neutral and full of minerals, and your teeth will suck up some overnight and rebuild itself overtime. But maybe you should also stop eating sweets before going to bed, like grandma used to say ;-)
To make green clay paste, just buy green clay, and pour water on it and wait 24h with it to become a paste, and that's it. Cheap, natural, and effective.
Oups, in english it may be loam... Sorry. Argile in French, Arcilla in Spanish...
Megan Elizabeth has a great video interviewing Don Bennet on tooth care, too.
He says to use the toothbrush as a 'tool', .. not to brush in circular motion. Then to use a shower water pick, as dental floss can hurt / cut the gums...
He also said to use a dry toothbrush and no toothpaste.
