Enamel stripped away by Fluoride
Article on why fluoride strips away tooth enamel:
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 32% of American children now have some form of dental fluorosis, with 2 to 4% of children having the moderate to severe stages (CDC 2005).
If course dentists want us to use Fluoride toothpaste, it generates MORE revenue with MORE tooth decay! And WHY in the HELL are dentists still promoting poisonous mercury amalgums, proven to be toxic. Tell us the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, Dr. Mike. The truth is you will be disbarred if you so much as say 1 word against fluoride or silver Amalgums. Isn't that right? If you told the truth your career would be KILLED by the ADA.
Peril is Right ON !
I also take 5mg K2 tablets & 10,000 IU Vitamin D3 every day.supplementing vit D3, eating vit K2 rich foods and dropping flouridated toothpaste have stopped caries dead

I along with many other dentists in this country have done away with amalgam fillings do to the mercury. I can see a mercury free future for dentistry. Unfortunately there are some insurance companies that do not cover white fillings so some patients have to choose amalgam for financial reasons. Maybe someone should question the insurance companies instead of slamming the dentist. As far as fluoride goes it is like anything else. Use it in moderation. If you use too much you can have problems. It is a toxic chemical however when used in small amounts like in toothpaste and not swallowed in large amounts it's fine. People need to take care with children and make sure they don't use too much and rinse and rinse well and they will be fine
One more thing. Anything the CDC says has to be questioned. After all they still won't admit that there is any link between vaccines and autism despite the overwhelming increase in autism in this country and the increase in childhood vaccines. If you think fluoride is bad what to you think is in all of those life saving vaccines. Thimeresol, mercury arsenic anti freeze to name a few.
And one final comment. You can't get disbarred as a dentist you jack ass
Debate the merits/evils of fluoride and glycerine all you want, I've already made my mind up about this based on empirical evidence I've seen with my own eyes.
I've seen stone age skulls (had the honour of handling them, in a university archaeology class), that had very worn down teeth, but with statistically fewer cavities than modern people. Many of them also had fossilised cementum on their teeth which means they didn't use anything to clean their teeth at all, no brushing or flossing in those days. They ate starchy foods and fruit, but they didn't have modern toothpaste, so there's definitely something funny going on when I, a regular brusher/flosser, have more cavities than an actual stone age dude who never brushed.
Of course I am not going to be just like Grok and go around with a mouth full of cementum, I don't like to have have fuzzy teeth! I just want to know what does actually get your teeth clean, with minimal damage. Could I just use an essential oil to lubricate the brush? Or do I need to use baking soda as well?

I use Dr.Ellie's Complete Mouthcare System and in combination with Primal eating I have seen great improvement (that I couldn't get with Primal eating/supplementation alone) in my disastrous mouth. I still need to have a couple root canals and and extractions because of some of the damage was too far gone but I think the xylitol and dilute flouride rinse have been really helpful in helping keep my saliva "alkaline" enough for my teeth to heal a bit aided greatly by the copious vitamins and minerals Primal eating supplies me. I think if your mouth was generally healthy before starting Primal then diet alone can help you maintain that good oral health but if you had issues like me sometimes you need a bot of extra assistance and this was coming from someone who thought fluoride and commercial toothpaste were "teh devilz" and to be avoided at all costs but in desperation I began using them and my results don't lie so for now I'm sticking with what is working and unfortunately the baking soda, coconut oil, tooth powder, etc, just weren't cutting it for me.
If you don't want to use commerical toothpaste you could try rinsing your mouth with salt water, then brushing with a soft toothbrush (with or without baking soda) and then rinsing with a xylitol rinse.

Also my younger son went to the dentist 2 years ago and his dentist tried to talk him into a mercury amalgum. My son had to DEMAND a non mercury filling. The dentist warned him these other fillings are MUCH more expensive. My son told him "I don't care what they cost, NO MERCURY.
Why was this dentist trying to push mercury on my son? Was he lazy? Was he trying to make less money? It makes no sense. Perhaps you have some ideas?
