We just got back from the dentist and ds got lots of compliments!
Almost 2 years ago I had a pediatric dentist tell me that ds had 5 cavities! Two teeth that are side by side near the front were affected and could be seen, but they told me that there were 3 more cavities in the back "that you can't see" and they didn't do X-rays of the back, so how, exactly were THEY seeing them?? I had a bad feeling and took ds to my dentist who agreed to check him out even though he doesn't see children. After full X-rays, only the front two cavities were real. My dentist, while extremely nice and great at what I'd call reactionary dentistry, wasn't supportive of trying to use diet, no fluoride and no glycerin to heal his teeth and prevent
I read a lot on here and decided to try to heal his teeth. We switched to Tooth Soap (and later added the awesome Tooth Swish product) to avoid all glycerin so his teeth could re-mineralize and I tried to add more bone broth, keep up his vegetable and fruit intake and continue CLO. He's not a huge fan of soup so I just got in as much bone broth as I could and worried that it wasn't enough. I'm also not consistent with the CLO. I bought BO, but the dss didn't like it and getting it in was a constant battle that I wasn't ready for...
I've kind-of been dreading going, but I found a holistic-minded DDS and decided to take ds. Exam and X-rays today show NO CAVITIES!!
There is, of course, evidence of past decay, but there is NO active decay at all. I believe the quote was, "I can see where he obviously has some damage from past decay, but there isn't ANY active decay anywhere. And when I look at his teeth I see very good mineralization...healthier than any baby teeth I've ever seen. Whatever you're doing is working so keep up the good work!"
I feel like jumping, dancing, shouting! I was a little uncomfortable (and dh, though supportive, was more uncomfortable) trying to "heal" cavities because it's against everything we're taught, but I'm so glad we relied on our TF diet, the WAPF principles and the advice I got on here...THANKS!!!
