Can Nutrition Help Get Rid of My Cavities?

February 6, 2013 Tooth Decay

Having the right nutrition in our lives can often be difficult. Even people who do not struggle with weight loss often struggle with eating healthy foods. It is a lot easier to go out and buy pizza or go to McDonald's when you're hungry, than it is to have a homemade meal. Most of the time, people just do not have the time to eat healthy. There are people who believe that fast food has somehow been engineered to be healthy for them. The truth is, you have to take the time to think about your nutrition. Fast food is so commercialized, that all the nutritional value has been stripped out of it. A lot of the problems that we have with our teeth today, are due to poor nutrition.

Did you ever wish you had perfect teeth? I know I always wanted to learn how to have healthy teeth. No matter how often I brushed and flossed my teeth, I still seemed to get cavities.

A lot of people with dental problems blame it on their genetics, on their age, or not brushing their teeth often enough.

January 14, 2013 Tooth Decay

If plaque and bacteria were the primary cause of cavities, you would be able to prevent them by brushing and flossing. Unfortunately, plaque and bacteria are not the primary cause of cavities.

Natural Teeth And Cavity Healing

September 25, 2012 Tooth Decay

I didn't always believe in natural teeth healing. For most of my life I was skeptical. Then, things started to change. First of all, my son developed fluoride poisoning. I thought that fluoride was good for your teeth. Instead, fluoride caused teeth to decay and become pitted in my son. Also, I noticed that I was getting more and more cavities every time that I visited the dentist. Even though I brushed and flossed my teeth more often, instead of getting fewer cavities, I just got more.


I began to feel frustrated with my teeth going downhill. I wondered if there is anything I can do to help them heal. I started doing a lot of research and reading a lot of books about how to shield teeth and cure tooth decay. I was

How Does pH Relate to Tooth Decay?

September 21, 2012 Tooth Decay

How does pH relate to tooth decay? Not many dental professionals are talking about pH and how it relates to tooth decay. The truth is there is a strong correlation between having an acidic mouth, and getting lots of cavities.  Eating a lot of processed sugars and flours are the main reason mouth's become acidic.  When you have a low pH in your mouth, your mouth is more likely to De-calcify or demineralize. This means your enamel will be weak and soft.


PH levels in your mouth are a big deal.  When you have a mouth that is more alkaline, this means your teeth have an easier time remineralizing themselves. Teeth that are fully remineralized is are almost immune to cavities.

What Are Some Ways to Affect the

How Does Candy and Sugar Cause Cavities?

September 21, 2012 Tooth Decay

Many people already believe candy causes tooth decay, but how does it occur? How does sugar cause cavities? Why is consuming candy and sugar on a regular basis bad for your teeth?


There are three reasons why candy and sugar are bad for you. The first reason is that it causes acid erosion to take place. When you eat sugar, the bacteria in your mouth instantly starts metabolizing it by converting it into an acid. When you have acid in your mouth, they can stick to your teeth and cause them to demineralize and become weak. Once your teeth become completely demineralized, cavities form very easily, and the tooth structure becomes very soft. Some of the worst kinds of sugary foods to consume on a regular basis include hard

Best Way to Prevent Cavities

September 13, 2012 Tooth Decay

Most people think the best way to prevent cavities is by going to the dentist regularly for checkups. This is what we are told all our lives, and it is what most people believe. Unfortunately, most dentists will even tell you the only way to stop the cavity from growing is to drill it out.  Unfortunately this is only a short term solution that doesn't deal with what really caused the cavity in the first place. If  dentists find any signs weak enamel, cavities, or tooth decay, they immediately treat that tooth, even if is just a soft spot in your enamel.


This can ruin teeth which are capable of healing themselves naturally!  For a lot of people, dentists end up replacing a live tooth with a filling. Even with some of the

What Causes Tooth Decay?

Tooth decay won't develop in your mouth unless you have teeth that have become weakened by acids. Most dentists won't tell you this, but it is your diet that mainly influences whether or not you get cavities and not genetics.


What you do eat, as well as what you don't eat plays a stronger role than genetics in determining the health of your teeth. Most dentists will tell you that plaque and bacteria are the primary causes of tooth decay. In my opinion, these are only secondary causes. The real causes of tooth decay are an acidic (sugar-loving) diet and not giving your body the adequate nutrition it needs to maintain strong and healthy teeth and bone structure. If you have a

How to Instantly Stop Tooth Decay

September 13, 2012 Tooth Decay

Is there a way to instantly stop tooth decay? Is there a way to reverse it?

Learning how to stop tooth decay is a process and not a destination. Over time, when we neglect the health of our teeth, they can become worse and worse.  An easy way to think about it is to imagine an athlete who is very fit and healthy. Over time,  he stops exercising, he stops eating healthy and does less and less physical activity. As he eats more and more junk food, his body is going to start to atrophy. So are his muscles and bone density.


When we eat processed foods, our teeth do a lot less exercise. They don't get the nutrition that they need to stay healthy. Sugars and processed foods are easily converted into acids that erode our tooth

What Causes Cavities in Teeth to Develop?

September 13, 2012 Tooth Decay

If you ask a dentist what causes cavities in teeth to develop, they will tell you that cavities are caused by plaque and bacteria.


In reality, there is a lot more to it than just plaque and bacteria in your mouth. Cavities are caused by four different factors. The two most influential factors are the pH of your mouth, and whether or not your teeth are fully mineralized.


The problem with modern dentistry's approach to dealing with cavities is that even though they tell you how to treat plaque and bacteria, they don't tell you how to prevent mouth acidity. They also don't tell you that eating healthy helps you to re-mineralize your teeth and keep them strong. Brushing, flossing, mouth
