Hello, I've just started eating raw and mostly fruit. I love fruit but I don't think my teeth do and I already have sensitive and receding gums. If you have some tips on avoiding dental problems they're most welcome! :)
Don't use toothpastes with glycerin or abrasives on your teeth. Rinse with water after eating. Floss daily. Limit dried fruits and dehydrated foods.
Some good tips on how to have healthy teeth when eating lots of fruit can be found here.
Make sure to get enough vitamin D, either from the sun when it's strong enough to make D in your skin, or from D3 supplements when the sun isn't strong enough or when you can't get enough sun when it is strong enough. Sufficient D is needed both for strong bones AND strong teeth. A good article on the D issues are here.
NOTE: Due to time constraints, I will not be following this discussion, but I can be messaged.
Don't brush your teeth hard and use a soft brush.
If you eat dried fruit, soak it overnight before eating.
Pineapples makes my teeth sensitive, so I avoid them - is there a particular culprit for you? Perhaps I was eating unripe pineapple?
Thanks so much for your advice guys :) xx
