    you mentioned lemons....that would do it, if used on a daily basis.

    I think when you have citrus fruits,it is a good idea to rinse your mouth out with water after, also you might drink the juice through a straw.

  • Hello,

    I have for a long time given up raw food since my teeth started to brake and fall out on the raw food diet. Pains, sensitivites finally made me give it up. I never ate much fruit, mostly berries, leafy greens, vegetables, good oils etc. For a few years I stayed away from a 100 % raw diet until I read something about teeth on a web site called something like: Age Defying Women. They had some nice stories about teeth recoverings but it came a few years to late. I could never understand why this would happen to me and now, I can't chew. Five of my teeth are gone, two is on their way and had a lot of pain. So I started to look for another kind of healthy diet. I found No Carb, High Fat. Today, my mouth is always clean and the pain is gone. I use pure animal fats and wholesome cream, and eat locally caught fish and are doing great! How come this is? If fruit and veggies are so good for you, then why this? It should be the other way around. I could blend my veggies but the more I ate, the more trouble with my teeth. Are fruits just being made of sugar and veggies full of carbs? I don't know but I do know; I lost several teeth on the raw diet.This is so discouraging. But I wonder, I don't think we are built for eating pine apples, mangoes, citrus, and all the other imported fruis and stuff. It's okej for the nativs living in that area but not for us up here in the North. Aren't we better off eating what our natural enviroment is producing? Today, I look for stuff in season growing here in my country and stay with that. Hopefully my health will improve even more but it is so sad, all those years on a raw diet left me with almost no teeth...and I'm only 45...

    Love from Sweden...

  • At me a question about removal wisdom teeth

    Several days ago have removed a wisdom tooth. Have removed very quickly (literally 5 minutes) and it is almost painless. On the one hand - it is good, on the other hand confuses the following - somehow very quickly the doctor was quit with me. Read, that before removal wisdom teeth do a picture - to me did not do, read, that before removal a tooth split up - to me did not split up (in my opinion it it has pulled out at once though a tooth after removal I did not see). Besides, I have not experienced, that a wound somehow processed after removal (like have put a medicine, but I have not noticed it - all very quickly).

    Once earlier I deleted other wisdom tooth and to me put a wadded tampon. This time a tampon did not put - have told, that this approach is already obsolete.

    Probably I in vain worry, but it would be desirable that someone has calmed.

    i think it's usually the high-fat raw fooders who have these problems.

  • Sorry to hear about your troubles Lena. I have hundreds of aquintances in Dr Grahams chat forum, all who are fruitarians like myself, who enjoy excellent health including our teeth. I eat almost exclusively raw fruit and greens and have no tooth problems at all. I live at 45 deg North by the way and am 48 years old. Given the large numbers of fruitarians who enjoy excellent health including their teeth, the cause of your troubles probably is not eating raw fruit and veggies.

    According To Kevin Guilani Eating to Much FRUIT causes you teeth to Hurt... He says stick with the Greens and Eat Fruit Sparingly...

    Quickly raise the pH of your mouth after eating (and thus avoid enamel damage), swish your mouth out with a mixture of water and baking soda, which has an alkaline pH of about 8.2. This works wonders.

     I like the list at the bottom of that article. It's helpful to know which foods are more likely to cause a problem (and which aren't).

    I have the same issue... I have been told to try tooth powder instead of toothpaste to alleviate this. Also, greens as has been said, and rinse your mouth after fruit meals!

    When I first went raw, I had sensitive teeth, especially while chewing. After a few months, my teeth completely stopped hurting; I don’t even get pain in my teeth when drinking or eating something very cold and that has been a lifelong problem for me.

    I have read that the teeth are elimination points for detoxing, so that’s what I attribute my early tooth-pain towards.

    Hi Moth! I was trying to figure out how to message you on here, but I guess I can only comment. I saw that you said you had a lifelong problem of sensitive teeth to very cold and it went away on the raw diet? Just wondering, did you do anything else to get rid of the sensitivity? I have the same problem and REALLY want to heal so I can enjoy cold smoothies and nice cream! Please feel free to send me your email address. Would love to connect with you on this.
