Hulky has very soft enamel (so does his mom) and has a bunch of fillings, a couple crowns, and has had some root canals. I looked into making my own re-mineralizing toothpaste (there are tutorials online), but the ingredients would be really expensive. Not sure what the cost would come out to per container/tube. I've never been able to see the difference before and after a cleaning, so I don't think I'd be able to tell if tartar was coming off. Right now, I'm messing around with oil pulling, baking soda, and the OraWellness brushing blend (oils). The brushing blend makes my teeth feel really smooth & my gums feel good (hard to explain what "good gums" feel like).
If we have kids someday, I hope they get his mouth shape (mine was very narrow until I had a palette expander before braces; his teeth are very straight), his gums, but my tooth strength. Hopefully, my good diet will make a difference .
