Because my other discussion had only views and no comments I started this one.
I want to know who of you have re-mineralized his/her teeth after a cavity apeared?
Also I want to know how big the cavity was and if you have any evidence for your natural healing e.g. x-rays or pictures. No matter if you have any evidence, but experiences please comment and share your knowledge.
I know that Freelee re-mineralized one of her teeth with four amalgam fillings in her mouth. I know that the PH of the saliva have to be around 7,0 to 7,2 that teeth can reminarlize. My PH of saliva in the mornig is only 6,2 to 6,5. So what should I do to get my saliva more alkaline?
If you have re-mineralized teeth how did you do that exactly? What do you eat? How was oral hygiene?
sorry if this is a stupid question but are you asking whether someone has re-mineralized their teeth through natural hygiene/diet alone and no fillings or with the fillings as well? is it even possible without the amalgam?
I am asking for both options.
Just for the record (for those this may help) - mercury amalgams are the worst things you can possibly have in your mouth, arguably.
Anyone who has them is being poisoned by the second most toxic substance on the planet, on a daily basis.
Our whole family is mercury toxic and it nearly detroyed our lives. :/
There is chelation (detoxification) but you can never ever (ever) do chelation with the amalgams still in your mouth. It will jack you up something fierce.
thanks for your post. I know that mercury is very toxic, but I will keep them in because every dental treatment destroys healthy teeth structure. Maybe I will change my opinion later but not at this time.
I have been monitoring some black spots on a molar which I had before going 100% raw. These black spots have shrunk in size to where they are hardly noticable now.
I eat a diet full of sweet fruits like bananas, mangos for the most part with greens most days which can include: 2 x lettuce heads, celery, cucumber, tomatoes, spinach, plus the occasional half an avocado.
For the most part my teeth feel great on this diet though I do not eat much citric fruits especially pineapples as my teeth are very sensitive to them - blending them though can help to stop this!
Dental hygiene wise I do the following:
I brush twice a day, morning and night
Floss after each meal - whenever possible/practical
Rinse my mouth out with water after each meal and use an oral irrigator if at home - this has been one of the best things I have bought as it flushes out food even flossing and normal mouth rinsing do not remove.
I also use a sonic toothbrush though I do tend to get some stains from time to time so also have handy a 'medium' bristlled toothbrush which helps to remove/keep down any staining of the teeth.
Tea Tree oil - just one drop in a glass of water for rinsing - from time to time if my teeth ever feel sensitive, which isnt often now unless I go for the citric option too much!!
Also eating lots of greens helps clean my teeth apart from the minerals they deliver to my body.
Hope this helps!
I am also working on healing my teeth from high fat / high acid (fruit) periods in the past.
I am not quite sure now whether it is high fat or high acid diet that can do the most damage, but it is certainly helpful to minimize fats and stay away from acids completely if trying to heal dental issues.
I am still not quite sure whether greens really help teeth to remineralize and heal, or just a non-challenging diet of soft and juicy sweet fruits (but not dry fruits like dates) allows the teeth to heal. But when I eat a lot of sweet fruits and no acid fruit, I certainly crave greens to help balance the sweet fruits. I think it helps to eat greens plain - without any dressing on them.
I also believe that any medical dental intervention further damages the teeth.
I think a long supervised fast or a series of them will help a lot, but only with a diet of 100% raw ripe sweet low fat fruit and greens in between.
Of course, strict dental hygiene, using shower floss and regular tape floss is absolutely essential.
Another remedy I am currently trying out is Calcium Bentonite Clay. You can mix it with a small amount of water or colloidal silver (if you have pain or infection) and put it in the cavity and/or around the tooth. From 1/2 hour to overnight applications. There's a lot of info about it online. I started using this on one of my problematic areas about 2 weeks ago (continous applications between the meals and overnight) and it seems to be working...
with the bentonite clay, have you heard if it has to be Calcium or how do you know if its Calcium bentonite? I was wondering as I have some sitting around that i got a couple months ago but all it says on the package is "Bentonite clay"
There are different types of bentonite clay so it's hard to say for sure: http://www.aboutclay.com/info/kinds_of_clay.htm
I wouldn't put anything in my mouth that wasn't meant for internal use.
I would recommend calcium bentonite clay from livingclayco.com. A small amount last forever. Mix 3 parts water with one part clay powder in a glass jar to make a paste. It is wonderfully soothing to pack on the gums or to use as a toothpaste. It's the last tooth cleaner you will ever need if simple water and chewing greens are not working for you.
After every fruit meal, eat a handful of greens to clean off and alkalize them teefs.
I have. I wore away a good portion of enamel eating a lot of vinegar and brushing too aggressively years ago. I tend to linger over my meals, so it was a problem when I put lots of vinegar on my greens and then it was in my mouth for an hour or more. Now I don't eat vinegar, but I'm careful with acidic fruit - I try to eat my citrus in a timely fashion and then brush.
Okay, here's how I did it. I stopped eating anything acidic while I was remineralizing. I also stopped using my natural toothpaste since it had glycerin in it. What I read that made sense to me was that glycerin coats your teeth and they have to be in contact with alkaline minerals, especially dicalcium phosphate, to remineralize. Ideally you keep your mouth alkaline as much as you possibly can.
I started brushing with Eco-Dent tooth powder instead. Its first ingredient is baking soda, and then it contains calcium diphosphate too. I actually love the taste of the anise flavor and I continued to use it and never went back to paste. When I was remineralizing, sometimes I'd just put a pinch in my mouth even when I wasn't brushing.
Finally, I stopped grazing over my food and moved to more distinct meals. I try to focus on eating and not take forever (I'm a really slow eater), and then I floss and brush after almost every meal, though sometimes I get lazy and just rinse with water (and put a pinch of the tooth powder in my mouth if it's been an acidic meal.) I use a Sonicare toothbrush because I tend to use too much pressure with a regular brush.
After about six months of this routine my teeth felt smooth again instead of rough, and I felt like I was out of the woods. By continuing my good habits my enamel has been fine ever since, and I can now eat acidic fruit without my teeth hurting.
Did you have had a hole in your teeth or just wored your enamel? And if you have had a hole, did that closed by second dentin after the six months?
Although I do not have dental proof that I ever had a cavity to begin with, I had pain on one of my teeth (could feel it when I bit down on food and it wasn't horrible pain but was bad enough that i was often just chewing with only the other side of my mouth) which has disappeared since brushing my teeth with olive oil soap. I made a video about my experience if you want to check it out.
If anyone has any idea of why the pain would disappear besides it having been re mineralization, let me know!
