How To Remineralize Your Teeth

April 30, 2013 MiswakTooth Decay

What? Can you repeat that word again? Re-mi-ne-ra-li-za-tion?  What the heck is that?

Not only is the word “remineralization” kinda hard to pronounce and spell, but it is also a fairly uncommon word for many people. Once, I tried to introduce the word to my friends, and they looked at me in this really funny way, mouth hanging open and all, as if I was speaking in a different language. The fact is, not everyone knows about remineralization of teeth, and just how important it is.

Remineralization, if broken into its root form, is from the prefix “re” (to repeat or go back), the root word “mineral” (naturally occurring elements), and the suffix “tion” (denoting a state or process). From these meanings, we can say that remineralization is the process of returning or restoring minerals.

Is Sugar Really Toxic to Our Bodies?

April 3, 2013 Tooth Decay

Is sugar really toxic to our bodies? Yes it is toxic and unfortunately, most food manufacturers don't tell you the whole true about sugar and why it can kill you.

Sugar is a very addictive substance. It triggers the release of endorphins in our brain. Using a CAT scan, you can easily target the release of these chemicals, every time a person eats sugar. The result is almost instant. Studies have proven that people who eat excessive amounts of sugar on a regular basis, develop a resistance to these chemical releases. In other words, people who normally eat a lot of sugar, end up having to eat more of it, in order to have the same effect or reach a sugar high. With so many pre-manufactured foods in our society, it is very easy for people to become addicted and overdosed to sugar.

How Does Sugar Cause Toothdecay and Cavities?

April 3, 2013 Tooth Decay

In a recent put out by the American Dental Association, they addressed bacteria as being the primary cause of tooth decay. Unfortunately, bacteria is not the real cause of tooth decay but rather a byproduct of having too much sugar in your diet.

Sugar causes tooth decay and cavities. When we consume sugars, it ruins our teeth a number of different ways.

1. Sugars cause teeth to decay because they increase acidity in our mouth. People who constantly eat sugars, maintain a high level of acidity that can demineralize teeth and weaken tooth enamel. It is the acidity demineralizing teeth, which creates soft spots, and eventually corrodes into a cavity. Bacteria aid in the process, by converting the sugars into acids very quickly. Acids can last in your mouth for up to 45 minutes after

What Causes Dental Caries in Children?

March 26, 2013 Tooth Decay

1. Sugars, creating an acidic mouth, are the number one cause of dental caries in children. Most children eat too much sugar. Their little bodies also can become addicted to sugar and crave it very strongly. One thing you can do is to give your children much smaller portions. Instead of giving them a whole candy bar, give them a quarter of a candy bar. To a child, that only weighs 45 pounds. A quarter of a candy bar is the equivalent of a 180 pound person eating a whole candy bar anyway. I have five children so I have seen the effects of sugar on teeth. My advice is to wait as long as possible before giving your children candy. There is no nutritional benefit anyway, and if a child never gets any candy, they will not have a craving for it. Without an addiction for sugar,

What Types of Bacteria Cause Cavities and Tooth Decay?

March 26, 2013 MiswakTooth DecayXylitol

The bacteria in your mouth most often blamed for creating cavities are called Streptococcus Mutans. This bacteria can react very quickly with sugars, to break them down into acids. Over time, acids can demineralize your teeth, and create cavities. Every time you eat candy, or processed sugars, the percentage of harmful bacteria in your mouth increases. Even a lot of  ‘diet’ foods and drinks can be fermented and turn into acids as well. Once an area of your tooth is completely demineralized, it destroys the tooth's structural integrity and a cavity is formed. These cavities can then become infected by the bacteria which can cause cavities to grow even faster. Tooth infection can cause your teeth a lot of pain.

There are more bacteria living in your mouth, than there are people living on

February 27, 2013 Tooth DecayToothache Remedies

Is There a Root Canal Alternative?

February 14, 2013 Tooth Decay


Is there an alternative to getting a root canal?
Essentially, there are four root canal alternatives.  The first root canal alternative is to getting a quality filling. Sometimes this alone is enough to get rid of tooth pain and infection. The second alternative to canal surgery is getting a crown. Even though this is still an invasive surgery, it doesn't end up killing the roots in your tooth. Many times, one dentists will recommend root canal and another one will recommenced a crown. It's a good idea to get a second opinion from another dentist.

After studying a lot about nutrition, I believe there is a lot you can do to reverse cavities and even root canals if you can catch the problem early enough. Most dentists completely ignore the fact that 80% of your tooth

You Don’t Have to Get Cavities and Toothdecay

February 8, 2013 Tooth Decay

Cavities and tooth decay are not a fact of life. They should not be accepted as a normal part of our existence. We seem to have forgotten that the natural physical state of person is a state of health, balance and harmony. This is how our Creator intended us to be.

I used to get cavities quite often. Whenever I ate sugar, I felt a sharp pain in my mouth. I had one cavity in my gumline, one in between my teeth and one in a bottom molar. I also had weak, yellow tooth enamel that made my teeth sensitive to hot and cold. Of course, going to the dentist was an option, but it seemed like a short term solution to a long term problem. But by using 100% natural methods, I strengthened my enamel. I got rid of ALL my cavities and healed my sensitive teeth. My wife was so impressed with how white
