I just went for my checkup and cleaning this morning, and I have two cavities.. Tiny ones, between teeth, but nonetheless..<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: I brush and floss (religously ) and use a sonicare, so I don't get it... I don't get cavities.<br><br>
SO it occurred to me that it might be calcium loss from mynursing ( heavily ) 20 month old...? Is this possible? I have a jar of calcium that I rarely take, I think its not the best kind. I'm also a vegeatrian, but I don't drink milk or eat cheese, just the very infrequent bit of goat cheese or yogurt. If anyone knows about this, I would love to hear from them...<br><br>
What could I eat or take to stenghten my enamel? Should I use the floruride rinse they recommended? Should I get xylitol gum??<br><br>
I didn't get the flouride treatment because....ummm... can't remember quite why, I'm not nuts about flouride. Plus, I don't know if it transfers to the milk.
