And what says your holistic dentist about glycerin?
You can check that on the Internet. Glycerin creates a thin layer on the surface of the enamel that prevents everything to stick (including minerals). So, if your toothpaste contains glycerin, no matter the level of minerals, they won't stick.
He didn't mention glycerin. I checked the toothpaste ingredients and it didn't have it. He did recommend toms toothpaste as well. Not sure if that has glycerin.
I was aware of glycerin's bad effects after watching don bennett
I couldn't neither. But I now use teeth powder (I guess it translates that way). Maybe you can look for ayurvedic products that generally are more natural than others. Or using only water.
It may be possible to reverse teeny cavities that can't be seen with the naked eye, but once they're big enough to be seen, it's not something you should count on, regardless of diet.
RT4, especially is not ideal for dental issues. The combo of starches and simple sugars can spell trouble unless your dental hygiene is impeccable. Eating fully raw is theoretically better for the teeth because of the absence of starches, which very easily stick to your teeth (especially if you avoid dried fruit and dates as well).
You can get the decay drilled out and leave it with no filling. cavities start underneath fillings all the time anyway so I'm not sure they are really that great. Both Tara and Freelee had all their fillings fall out and they have not had any further tooth decay. Tara made a nice video about her tooth health here.
From all I've read and my experience, I think brushing and flossing thrice daily is the only sure way to stay cavity free.
I highly recommend reading books and listening to online interviews with Dr. Robert Nara DDS and Dr. Hal Huggins DDS.
