I’ve been reading some of the posts on more natural dental care, and i don’t expect anyone to be a dentist but i could use some advice more specific to my situation…
I went to the dentist today after not having visited for a year, and luckily I had zero cavities and a lot less plaque than my last visit. But I do have a lot of de-calcification and loss of enamel going on, and apparently thats due to the braces i wore for 4 years + time without impeccable dental care. The solution they gave me was to soak my teeth in flouride for 2 mins and also they gave me a toothpaste that is especially made with a lot of flouride in it that i’m supposed to leave on my teeth at night, which is supposed to be absorbed by the teeth and make the part that is decalcifying much stronger.
Now, having heard the bad rap for flouride, i’m a little hesitant to use it, but i don’t want my teeth to get any worse. What should I do?
Also, I’ve heard that teeth are pretty much alive and that on a raw food diet they can heal, although it takes time. The dentist says once enamel is gone thats it you just have to try to do what you can to slow the decalcification from here on out… but could it heal?
