I ABUSED my teeth, for about a year, really badly.
I am now paying for it, I have 7 large fillings in my back teeth and need a further 4. :/ Eek.
My teeth have become super sensitive over the past 2 months.
I am now, brushing twice a day, once in the morning, once in the evening, using disclosure tablets in the evening, using dental tape afterwards.
I use toothpaste, with a medical grade amount of fluoride to keep the dental disease at bay.
I read money by the mouthful, and this seemed like the best thing to do.
I have another 4-5 cavities, probably pretty deep. I'm so scared to have my teeth rot out. Has anyone else come to this diet in this state? Help :/
I have a family history of awful teeth, and I am no exception. I have several large cavities, zero enamel (so everything really sticks), and already pretty bad gum recession. I'm 26, and have already had my teeth longer than my parents had theirs. I'm just beginning on this lifestyle but am interested to read all of the comments to your post.
You have to ask yourself, why no enamel ? That's minerals. The best fruit for teeth and bones according to my limited research is bananas. They have potassium, phosphorous, calcium and magnesium along with all the other things needed for those to be used properly (ie it's a whole food obviously). I would personally go nuts on the bananas and get plenty of healthy doses of sunshine regularly. Get fluoride out of your life, even if you have to install a water tank. Most filters don't really do it. Showering in fluoridated water is as bad. Teeth IMO are the canary in the coal mine in respect of bones, and therefore everything else as well. Try to get as much organic produce as possible - fluoride is the main ingredient in most pesticides along with things like mercury and arsenic. But mainly fluoride. It kills everything. It's extremely costly to dispose of in the environment which is rather convenient they get to sell it to the governments who put it in the water and get a nice, docile, gullible malleable meat eating population.
Thanks Mike! My Mom claims that she didn't have much enamel either, and the dentist told her that I was also lacking by the age of five. It became something that I expected, and accepted. Maybe I don't have to, though.
Thanks to everyone who put in so much time and effort replying to my questions.
I have a non fluoride toothpaste, I am going to start using that along with disclosure tablets.
I really do recommend that people read money by the mouthful, in witch dental disease is described as such, and therefore transferable.
Thank-you for your resources and help in my understanding, I will check everything out and check back in future to update.
