Tooth loss is not inevitable. You can keep all your teeth healthy and strong straight to the end of life, if you give your dental care routine the respect it deserves. However, if you have begun to lose teeth, it is never too late to improve your oral care habits and stop tooth loss, especially with the help of a few natural home remedies.
Gingivitis and dental cavities are the two most common causes of tooth loss, so addressing these two oral health issues will go a long way toward preventing further tooth loss.
Natural Cures: Reducing the acidity level in your mouth by eating fewer acidic foods (especially sodas) can help. Also, using 3% hydrogen peroxide as a mouth wash can help prevent gum disease and restore the stability of your teeth. Drinking more water (to keep your mouth and teeth moist), brushing and flossing better, and supplementing your diet with additional calcium and other minerals can help restore your oral health and prevent further tooth loss.
Does anyone have any helpful remedies for cracked teeth? I went to the dentist a few days ago due to pain, especially if I eat anything sweet, and am scheduled for over $1000 worth of dental work, and that's with insurance, beginning Tuesday. To spend that kind of money, especially this time of year, is causing me so much anxiety, and will create such an enormous hardship for me, if there is a way to avoid these procedures (crowns), I'm very interested to hear your feedback.
I have to say I am an EarthClinic super fan. This has to be my most favorite site on the Internet. I love how helpful everyone is, and love, love using natural home remedies that are available to just about everyone, physically and financially. Thank you so much!

Hello: Thanks for having this site. I have been told I have severe bone loss in my mouth. Which is amazing because I have really nice teeth and have been consistantly seeing dentists since I was a little girl. I'm hoping for a natural cure to regenerate the bones. I believe western medicine is good for some things like broken legs. But, everything else make me nervous. One dentist says I have great teeth, one cavity. The next one says I have 32 cavities (1st time for me to hear this - I have good hygine and I go in for cleaning every 6 months). Originally, I'm told silver filling are bad. So they put the white ones in. Now, I'm told that white fillings are bad and they need to be gold filing. The dentists seem to want to redo each other's work. My question is why bother with all this work, fillings, caps etc... If my teeth are going to fall out. Please help. Thank you, AngelaReplied by Lisa
