If you want to regrow tooth enamel naturally, there are a few natural remedies that may help you remineralize your teeth to improve their appearance and strength. Dental enamel is the extremely hard outer layer of the tooth. It is generally said not to regrow, though studies are now beginning to question the absolute truth of this dental claim. However, the right nutrition and supplements can help you restore the minerals that make up dental enamel, such as calcium and phosphorus, that your teeth need to be healthy and strong.
Years of use, dental infections, cavities, acidic foods, coffee, tea, cigarettes, and other irritants can damage teeth, leaving them weak and unattractive. If you can improve your oral care practices and reduce the number of destructive influences on your teeth, you can begin to restore some of your mouth's original dental health.
Natural Remedies: Supplemental calcium and phosphorus can provide the teeth with the minerals they need. Vitamin D in particular, but also vitamins C and K2 likewise encourage re-mineralization of teeth. Additionally, black walnut tincture is said to help repair dental enamel.
Hi EC friends, I am posting a link to hear Daniel Vitalis, whom I have had the great pleasure of hearing speak several times. I have learned so much from this amazing individual. Once again, this pertains to tooth health but Daniel covers so much when it comes to health. He loves to challenge the status quo. I love him for that! I really hope you are taking advantage of these audio interviews. They are so chock full of educational information for our health.
Best to everyone, Lisa
Hi Everyone, Once again I have another audio interview with Dr. Lina Garcia who believes it is time to reform the standard procedures of dentistry. She has a practice without antibiotics, root canals, fluoride treatments or mercury fillings. She's even Dr. Mercola's dentist! I know so many of us are always trying to learn about alternative ways to take care of our mouth health. Hope you had the chance to listen to the last one I posted of Dr. Hal Huggins. It was really great!
Here's the link for the newest one:
Best of health to all! Lisa
[YEA] An apple truly is nature's tootbrush. Eating an apple whole is best, but an apple you slice yourself is fine. Leave the peel on. What I saw when I did this was not my imagination. You will notice your teeth are cleaner after one, and whiter after 2-3, and more. Just eat the apple normally, raw/uncooked. Not the commercially prepared, treated, prepackaged apple slices, use a fresh apple.
Hi. I have many old (as in more than 8) large mercury fillings.
After much reading I have found out that these mercury fillings expand and contract in a persons mouth (due to eating hot and cold foods, icy drinks, pressure from chewing and grinding teeth at night, etc.)
Over time this resulted in the breaking off of tooth material around the filling. This has been my experience, anyway.
I despise going to the dentist. I had some very bad dental experiences as a child. I finally went to a decent dentist last month and had x-rays and a consult. (I finally found a dentist that refuses to put mercury into people! How awesome is that?! )
Anyway - after one decade of not having my teeth cleaned (I had been in to my old dentist for two broken off pieces of teeth and two huge mercury fillings however). Anyway, I digress.... after one decade = I had three small cavities, and my gums are all good!
I am a 51 year old woman, and I do floss 2x a day.
Since those three cavities were found last month I have been reading like mad on how to remineralize teeth, and have decided that commercial toothpastes are not the way to go.
I decided to start using baking soda instead of my regular toothpaste only after much, much reading. I know some people believe in bar soap.... Sorry, I cannot stand the taste of bar soap, that would put me over the edge into barfing land.
It has been approx. three weeks since I started using baking soda to clean my teeth and tongue. I noticed right away that my teeth don't get that "furry" feeling like they used to with toothpaste! It is like the toothpaste left a film on my teeth that actually GREW things! (I used to use a sentitive teeth type toothpaste).
I simply cannot believe how awesome my teeth feel now as compared to before. I waited these few weeks to be sure I wouldn't develop sensitivity or something. I have not. The key is to make sure your toothbrush is a soft brush (NOT MEDIUM) and that it is super wet when you put the BS on it. If the BS is too dry then it is too abrasive on your teeth... Kind of like you are sanding them.... the brush needs to be wet.
I am going in for a dental cleaning at the end of this month, and am hoping those three small cavities are gone by then. If not... Oh well. No more mercury will be going in this body at least.
Oh, and re gum health - I honestly believe that my good gums are due to flossing daily, taking Co-Q10 at 100mg a day and Vitamin C at 1,000 a day. Possibly the Magnesium, Boron, and K2 I take as well.
Dental issues are so horrid. I just wanted to share that commercial toothpaste is garbage, (MO) that I now TOTALLY believe that it attracts bacteria to the teeth.
Thank you again Earth Clinic - For providing such a great site for all of us to share our thoughts, ideas, and findings.... There is not one other site on the internet that even comes CLOSE to being as helpful as this awesome place is! :-)
