The Treaments do not Work
[QUOTE=mom2talus;8011798]PlayaMama, I'm glad you said something. I'm a bit concerned about this topic as we just had a child actually die from tooth decay here in the DC area. There has been quite a bit of research done on this topic and just throwing it all out is really worrying to me. My son is almost four and has no decay or cavities, just through regular, twice-daily flossing and brushing. If he had any decay at all, however, I wouldn't mess with it for a minute. I'd be straight at the dentist doing what needs to be done!
The child did not die from tooth decay. Perhaps they died from an infection. Did this child see a dentist? Are you aware of how many children die while getting treated for tooth decay? I do not know the answer, but I have heard of several instances.
The relapse rate for dental treatments on children, this includes the risks of full anesthesia are over 50% in just 4-6 months.http://www.cda-adc.ca/jcda/vol-69/issue-5/304.pdf
All most conventional dentist do is drill, fill, and remove teeth, or apply the one of the most deadly poisons on the planet, fluoride. http://bruha.com/pfpc/
Drill holes in teeth to prevent a little tiny bacteria from make a hole in the tooth does not seem like good science to me.
Tooth decay is a result of physical degeneration. Not all children have it, in fact, about 27% of young children have had at least one tooth affected by decay, the rest are decay free, that is until they get older, the number rises to over 93%
Why do you think with all those fillings in place, people still get more and more decay?
Sure, there may be special instances when dental work is necessary, but how about preventing the need in the first place.
