    brilliant.

    it won't help my three broken teeth though (all broken through GRAINS!) which will need crowns. but good to know the d3 and the no grains will potentially reverse any cavity damage

    : - )

    i don't want any more root canals!

    Not an experiment I'm willing to try.

    Plus, people tend to avoid you when you smile at them with spinach stuck between your teeth.

    I have fewer teeth now than I did 30 years ago. I have more gaps in my mouth than your average 6-year-old. I have no wisdom teeth, and only 2 molars left.

    Reminds me of that Pam Ayers poem (my granny used to read her stuff to me all the time when I was younger)

    I wish I'd looked after me teeth
    And spotted the perils beneath
    All the toffee I chewed
    All the sweet, sticky food...

    That's all I can remember. I still have the book somewhere...

    I was in agony for 15 years. I went to Scouseville, and got up early and went to the emergency clinic at the Dental Hospital (you have to be there by 6am, because only the first 20 get seen). I was seen by a lovely lady dentist, who got me an appt with the consultant (big Irish woman). Saw her the following Monday. The following Friday I was in Aintree and that was that (it did land me in the loony bin, but that's not a story for now...). Hey presto - 12 gaps in me gob!

    But I've not needed to brush so much since going primal, either. I chew nic gum too (yes, I know...) which contains xylitol, so that probably helps - I do floss, obvously, to get the bits of spinach and meat from betwixt 'em!
    La tristesse durera toujours...

    There are tooth powders without flouride.

    The taste takes some getting used to, but I think baking soda is too abrasive for everyday use.

    Been primal for a week. My teeth are much cleaner feeling after cutting out grains and sugars.

    there is also a major genetic component to all of this. I know people who brush WAY better than I do and get more cavities, and people who brush less and have fewer. but don't quit brushing on account of toothpaste. I HATED the taste of toothpaste for years and wouldn't brush. My dad is a dentist and always said it's not a big deal not to use toothpaste as long as you were brushing well and getting fluoride elsewhere. (I haven't been convinced that it's the devil some seem to think it is, but if you choose to avoid it, that's fine with me.)

    I use a non-fluoride mouthwash (mainly alcohol and water) in the morning, floss at night and use a toothbrush dipped in mouthwash at night aswell. Feel icky going to bed without brushing if I've been eating garlic or something like that for dinner.

    eh, just brush your teeth. 2 minutes in the morning and 2 minutes before bed. There are many fluoride free toothpastes if a person is fluoride-phobic. That said, make sure to floss and rinse if you choose not to brush.

    I hear that liver is like superfood for your teeth (well, your body in general).
