How Many Cavities Or Fillings Have You Had?

37 posts in this topic

none. knock on wood.

before, as in like high school years i only used mouth wash and never brushed. The reason i stopped brushing then was from my gums bleeding in certain spots no matter how light i brushed. It wasnt serious but just enough to be noticed. I stopped to prevent it from getting worse

Today isnt much different unfortunately. But i drink loads of water, green tea which helps i would suppose, but i never did then. Although i chewed gum (sugarless) a lot back then. I would go through a pack a week almost like cigs lol.

This is something i should maybe start again... but i dont want bleeding gums. So maybe just some good mouth wash more often.

Yep. The whole "once enamel is gone it's gone forever" thing is a total lie. I think they invented it to sell that fluoride laden toothpaste crap, which only makes the problem worse. I'm living proof that you can remineralize... one of my cavities was visible (a little pin sized hole) on the front of my tooth. It's gone now.

I oil pull daily, use herbal tooth powder, and eat tons of fresh greens. That's what turned my dental situation around. I used to barely be able to eat because my teeth hurt so badly.

I would really love to know more about healing cavities naturally. I have a friend who has one and I remembered seeing your post earlier about it! He's into the natural remedies so I'd love to find out for him. How exactly would one go about naturally healing cavities?


my regimen:

am

wash face+chest+back with UMF 16+ manuka honey

tone with chamomile lavender tea

pm

home made grey kaolin clay, manuka honey & tea tree oil mask for 30+ minutes

spot treat with 50/50 jojoba and tea tree oil

avoiding dairy, soy, high sodium, refined sugars, processed foods since September 2011. more recently peanuts, gluten and citrus as well.

I am 90-95% clear, and still improving.

Start by reading up on oil pulling. That's an important first step. Then start googling "remineralizing teeth" and do some reading, it should point you in the right direction. :)

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

I have had two fillings over the course of my life, and they were both before I had acne...I had severe acne for many years and was cavity-free

I am a 31 year old female, had acne for 20 years :(

Prior to accutane in 2003 it was quite severe, now it is more moderate at the times when my skin does get bad.

Never had a filling or a cavity, my teeth are excellent, healthy and white! :)

I've had at least 10 and a root canal and Its not from a lack of hygiene. Last time I had a cleaning I asked the hygienist why I always get them when I take care of my teeth and I've known multiple people who've said that they rarely brush their teeth and never get any, she basically told me some people have cavity prone teeth and some people don't.

Never had a filling, but used to wear braces in high school for about 2 years. I have sensitive gums though, and sometimes they bleed when I brush. I might also need to get the rest of my wisdom teeth taken out soon. If my gums are hurting, I mix salt with water and make gargles to sanitize the wound. It really helps!


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...

 

Grocery list:

I know this is an acne forum (this should probably be in the lounge), but what here do people do to look after the oral health other than brush, floss and rinse? I despise my fillings and would love to have rid of them. I might ask for white ones...

I have braces and just find it impossible to keep my teeth in the best condition. I want them GONE!

1 filling. I used to grind my teeth so the outer part of my molars got cavities and had to have 2 filled so 3 in total. I have an insane obsession with teeth so I'm always brushing, and flossing throughout the day. Don't think it could cause you to break out. If your toothbrush is rubbing on your skin (the side of you mouth), the bacteria on the toothbrush could cause you to breakout in that area.
