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 my teeth have become despite having given up on traditional brushing and flossing!
I grew up having far less than perfect teeth, and I know I’m not the only one. Bad teeth cause people to feel self-conscious and generally fearful of making a bad impression. It makes them feel inferior, unattractive and undesirable. Some are even teased, bullied and ridiculed. It is not easy to deal with these feelings and experiences day after day. I believe there are thousands of people right at this very moment, feeling the same way. I am telling you, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Whether we like it or not, appearances do matter. You can say appearance isn’t everything until you’re blue in the face, but the simple truth is, it does matter! And yes, first impressions last. The impression you create affects how people remember you. Even after five years, or ten years have passed, people will still remember you as “the guy with the yellow teeth”, or “the girl with bad breath”
Having bad teeth caused by tooth decay affects how you feel about yourself and how others feel about you. Most of us have experienced the pain caused by tooth decay at some point in our lives. The pain is excruciating, sometimes intolerable, even for us adults. If you have little children, just think how they fare with that sort of pain. It’s almost unbearable to think of our kids suffering that way.
Cavities and tooth infections necessitate a trip to the dentist. Did you know 75% of people have a at least a mild fear of going to the dentist? Are you among them? 10% of the population fears dental appointments so much, they won’t go unless it is a dental emergency. These people typically end up having invasive surgery reinforce their fears instead of soothing them.
These dental appointments can be very expensive. A friend of mine just took her children into the dentist for a routine check up and the trip cost her about $2500! If you are married or have children, these bills can really add up quick. One procedure often leads to more follow-up procedures. For people living on an average income, dental fees can be very burdensome.
But perhaps, the most important reason of all as to why you need to take care of your dental health is because it is an accurate indicator of our overall health. Your teeth tell a lot about how healthy you are. Tooth decay is a manifestation of an underlying health issue you probably didn’t even know about. It could be an early sign of malnutrition, diabetes, digestive problems or 100’s of other diseases linked to poor dental health. In addition, tooth decay can be pretty dangerous if ignored. According to the Mayo Clinic, tooth decay should not be taken lightly because it can lead to serious complications. Teeth and gum infections also give bacteria and pathogens direct access to your bloodstream. This puts a strain on your immune system and also puts you at risk for systemic infections.
You don’t have to get cavities and tooth decay. No, you don’t. We grew up thinking tooth decay will eventually get us. Cavities can be cured. Cavities can be prevented. Our lives are not destined for tooth decay. Accepting this truth is your first step to natural healing.
