Has anyone successfully reversed tooth decay in toddler? - Page 3

post #41 of 68
What about ZAPP gum and xylitol products?

http://www.zappgum.com/buy_now.php

They ship to Canada, yay.

Do any of you use bulk xylitol in food/baking, instead of sugar? Or is it mainly to get it ON your teeth, in your mouth?

You all have GOT to read the book Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye. Don't worry--the author is a dentist!

I know I was all onto Cure Tooth Decay when I first posted to this thread, but I've come to realize that VERY few people--including me--can or will bother with such a strict diet protocol. (Besides, when this thread first started, the previous bk hadn't been published. )

On the other hand, Dr. Phillips, author of Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye, offers a simple daily routine that ANYBODY can do, and that she practically guarantees will heal tooth decay and gum disease.

Xylitol is an alcohol sugar. maybe someone here is a little more knowledgeable than I am about chemistry, but essentially it means that your body does not digest it as a sugar. however, dogs will digest it as a sugar and it will cause them to essentially have really high blood sugar levels and then go into a diabetic crash. Not good. But it's totally safe for humans because our bodies digest it differently.

I agree, though, just because something is used widespread (even in daycare centers) does not mean that it's safe. I do trust xylitol.

One more point: if you're concerned about GMOs, be careful where you purchase your xylitol. The vast majority is made from corn; generally it will be labeled if it's from birch as this is a selling point (and makes it a little more expensive).

Has anyone tried Spiffies?

So, they look weird to me but are not hurting her.(the other dentist wanted to get he in immediately...surgery at 18 months old...no way!!!) So, once I realized this, I knew I had time to work with all of the things the other posters posted. You have time...don't stress too much.
My son is 16 months old and his dentist says he needs at least 2 crowns under GA within 1 and half months. It is heartbreaking. We are a couple of hours from Madison. I just found out he had cavities a 6 weeks back and went to the dentist immediately. They put fluoride on it and said it must slow it down. But the lateral incisors have been crumbling away so fast and the central incisors have started to decay too. I am just starting to brush with bentonite clay as I don't believe fluoride is effective. It might work... I can change more habits, but just don't have enough time. Could you please tell me more about how you feel about the ozone now? How much did it cost for 1 visit? Do the teeth need crowns one day anyway? (at least in your case) I am not able to night wean yet. I can't wipe his teeth without waking him up and needing to nurse back to sleep. Anyone had success arresting decay with such a situation?
Thanks, Deepa

I have to apologize for not being on this forum for so long.  I'm sorry for any questions to me that i did not get.

 

My daughter is now 6 years old (18 months when we found decay).  We did go to Dr. Chris Krammer in Middleton, WI about 4-5 times.  We did the whole mouth 1X then specific teeth the rest of the times.  We stopped going about 2 years ago as he kept telling us that there was no more decay occurring.  

 

She has lost all but one of the bad teeth.......whew!  We made it with no crowns, fillings or caps.  

 

The procedures got expensive but it was worth it.  I will do it all over again if I have to with my son.

I just bought some of the toothpaste for DD, some for us, some gum for us and the berry "mints" for DD at The Big Carrot on the Danforth in Toronto.

I bought the xlear brands. But they have at least a half dozen brands of xylitol toothpaste and 2 brands of gum there.

Has anyone successfully reversed tooth decay in toddler?

I am also looking for xylitol mints and other products that are in Canada. I was very dissapointed when I tried to order from Zellies and they don't ship to Canada.

Right now I've just been using some mints from our natural food store, called Spry and Sparx.. But I want the good stuff from Birch!!

Edit: nevermind! Saw the Zappgum.com link! Thanks!

Hi there? How long did you stay at the first dose before reducing?

Calc Phos - bone health, gives solidity to bones and assists in building strong teeth.

Calc Fluor - assists with improving enamel of teeth and malnutrition of bones.

Mag Phos - quick pain relief with symptoms associated with toothache, teething children & bone development.

Silica - assists in building strong connective tissue to support deficient assimilation.

Bones that are strong and healthy from a young age are more likely to remain strong and healthy throughout our lives. As we all know Calcium is important for strong bones. Calcium is not just essential for strong healthy bones, but also for healthy muscles. Magnesium is also found in our bones and works with Calcium to build strong structures.

The pills are tiny, dissolve instantly in the mouth, and taste ok. Two pills three times daily.

My DSs dentist has remarked about his strong, healthy teeth! This of a little guy with extreme, severe ECC at 18 months.

My mom gets the homeopathics from www.elixirs.com or www.1-800homeopathy.com. She usually buys the 1000 amount. They're cheaper that way.

Spry products are available in Vancouver - at Choices and Whole Foods. We use the infant tooth gel.

Should I be using 6x or 30x to help heal a decay issue?  My 14 month old has mild decay on 3 teeth and moderate on 1 but it seems to be progressing quickly.  I bought a brand called Martin and Pleasance which is called 'Kidz minerals strong bones and teeth"  it has Calc Fluor 6x, Calc Phos 6x, Mag Phos 6x and Silica 6x.  I give it to her 4 times a day dissolved in a bit of water.  Should I be upping the dose or using 30 x?

Any other tips?  Dentist wants to fill her teeth or PULL one if it doesn't stop!

Since we started using a Xylitol toothpaste called Squigle Tooth Builder toothpaste, my 7 year old Son hasn't had a cavity for 3 years now.  He had one cavity when he was 4 years old when we were just using plain water to brush with.  And, my 4 year old Daughter has never had a cavity yet (but we haven't used anything but water to brush her teeth so far).  We are going to start her on the Squigle Tooth Builder toothpaste now.  The toothpaste is fluoride-free and has a zero toxin rating.  Here is where we buy it from   http://www.homesteadmarket.com/product/266/xylitol_toothpaste  

 

Also, DON'T EVER USE A SPINNING TOOTHBRUSH because it made my enamel too thin and caused me to get extremely sensitive teeth.  My dentist also said that you can skip the polishing
(the part right after cleaning where they use that spinning brush and use a gritty toothpaste), because he was taught in dental school that polishing is not mandatory, it's just optional. 

 

Skipping the polishing will preserve enamel along with using the Dr. Collins toothbrushes for kids and adults.  Using this softer toothbrush, toothpaste & skipping the dentist polishing has made my sensitive teeth not sensitive anymore, also because the Squigle Tooth Builder toothpaste also plugs up those little tubules holes that lead straight to the nerve, plugging them up with calcite.  So it is good for kids and adults with cavities and enamel problems. 

 

Here is where I get the toothbrushes for kids & adults.

Wishing you the best & Good Luck!

I'm so glad to have found this thread.  I just noticed (and was horrified by it) that my DD's tooth has some decay.  I am willing to try natural remedies.  I think the OP mentioned she found her dentist through the Mothering board.  Is there a list of dentists somewhere on here?  Please help!  Thanks. :)

It has been trying and difficult at times, but there are definate things you can do that WILL work.

1. Diet. Adding raw milk/rawmilk cheeses, cod liver oil, lots of deep green veg., grassfed meats and pastured eggs and fresh seafood.
2. Xylitol products constantly
3. HealOzone treatment/s
4. Water after everything they eat


That has worked for us exceedingly well, YOU CAN DO THIS!

 

Great tips :) Thanks.

I am interested in finding someone who says Xylitol's safety hasn't been proven: go tell that to the Finns who have been using for over 40 yrs. Take a look at the following links:


http://www.zellies.com/store.asp?pid=9839

http://www.zellies.com/store.asp?pid=9688&catid=19708

My just turned 4 yr old DS has been using [or we have been using it on him] now for over 2 yrs and his dentist and doctor say Xylitol was the best thing we could have done for him.

If it is toxic, WHY is the US Military giving it to our troops? Do the research yourself.

It does have a laxative effect on some children and adults. But there have not been any deaths or disabilities because of its use. My mom can't take a lot [she's 64], but my DS has eaten almost a whole jar of zellies Cool Fruit with no effect.

Now dogs cannot eat it, because it is toxic to them, especially the Toy breeds. But then there are a lot of other human foods we should not give our dogs either.

As you can see I get irritated by folks downing Xylitol. I think it is great. My DS has not been to the dentist since having his little abscessed tooth extracted. His teeth are doing wonderful and we didn't do ANY of Weston Price's diet. It took about 2.5 yrs to go from extreme severe ECC to cavity-free and he only lost one tooth and had another one filled. AND he is very very healthy!

Is the CALC FLUOR the same as flouride? What makes them different? Thanks.

Is Silicea the same as Silica?

 

Also, I have seen most of the salts in 6x, not 30x, it was mentioned that its best to start with 30x. What happens if you start with the 6x?

 

Also, I have seen the Hylands brand in salts as well as the elixir, which one is better?

 

The elixirs has a set of 12 salts, would all of them help as well? Or is it over kill?

Thanks.
