    Best thing you can do for your teeth is to ditch the grains and sugar and keep your Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2 levels high. Toothpaste, powder and oil pulling are basically cosmetic in effect
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    I recommend using MI paste to re-mineralize your teeth.

    I swear by Miswak. Though, apparently, not being the best advert for their use; I'd done a lot of damage to my teeth before becoming Muslim, but for 13 years (since becoming Muslim) I have only used miswak and they have preserved my teeth remarkably well.
    All the best!

    I did go to a dentist, probably 20 years ago, and he bitched about my teeth. I argued that I brushed all the time, and he said it didn't matter. The sugar in my bloodstream did the damage from the inside out. Interesting, especially that long ago.

    ETA: Well, that and I have genetically shitty teeth. I come from a long line of people with bizarre teeth issues, so I'm actually on the fortunate side of things that they're reasonably straight and all there.

    First things first: Lower carb/sugar intake. Get your immune system in check. Eat nutrient dense foods (offal once in a while).

    I don't use toothpaste, don't feel I need it either. I just brush with water to remove any plaque. Oil pulling seems interesting. Oh, and every time I have some bone broth, I swoosh it around in my mouth and my teeth actually feel stronger and less sensitive afterwards!

    Look at pictures of African tribesmen. They've got a mouthful of big shiny white teeth. They don't need no Colgate.

    One of my guys brought me a couple of Miswak sticks this morning from Suez. Very cheap, less than 1 USD each (compared with the $10 price I saw online). While I had heard of the Miswak sticks before, I don't see them used that much in Egypt but did see them used a bit in Nigeria when I was there.

    I'm curious pdjesson, do you think your teeth getting better since you became Muslim had anything to do with following Halal laws?

    I use Weleda salt toothpaste which is fluoride-free. I am curious about trying mishwak myself.

    Edited to Add: Have ordered four mishwaks at 50p each from Zamzam Direct, a Muslim shop in UK which ships internationally. Also got some black seed mineral toothpaste in a jar for 4.95 GBP plus a bar of black seed soap to try for a pound. With p&p order came to 10.65 GBP

    I have used the company before for books (am learning Arabic) without problems.

    I try to use flouride-free toothpastes, as I don't think flouride is so good for us. However, I also sometimes have sensitive teeth, and haven't found a flouride-free for sensitive teeth yet. I want to look into re-mineralizing and see if that helps instead but I can only make so many changes in my life at a time. (-:


    I'm so curious though; what does being Muslim have to do with tooth health? What changes did you make due to religion? I'm not familiar with Muslim traditions or religious laws so I'm curious!
