I'm not 100% Raw..well not even 50% Im still dablling it so I know some of my diet contain sugar. I dont eat a lot mind, but more that a Raw Fooder would.
However I went to the dentist the other day and he said Im Ok but hes going to keep an eye on something, but more than anything I've noticed on one of my tooth the gum is receeding and my gums tend to be reddish - not completely, but in certain areas.
I will raise my hands and say I've always been sloppy with oral hygine. When I was a Kid I ate sooo much sugar you wouldnt believe it... its all I would eat for a time, my parents didnt really know about nutrition they thought giving me what I want would be good, as long as I had some beans on toast here and there and chips I would be fine.
I dont blame them of course as they did warn me my teeth would rot out, I already have one mercury filling, three teeths taken out (one was wisdom, one grew on top of another and the last was broken in an accidnet) and I have a silver crown. But its only now that I've woke up to see the damage I have done!
I have awful teeth for somebody my age (19) and shamefully I don't think I've gone a solid week where I've DEFINITLY brushed my teeth morning and night. I floss when I feel like it, same with mouthwash.
You're probably disgusted at me but actually I've always been weary of ingesting things, so I might have done all that but I've never swallowed a tablet or puffed a cigarette so even when I was doubled up in pain from tooth ache I never took a paracetamol.
So, today I went to the health shop and got myself a Natural toothpaste, whcih is probably silly since Im using a normal chemically mouthwash lol. But apart from starting to brush/floss/mouthwash regular has anyone got any raw/holistic/healthy ways of combating this damage or even reversing it?
