You won’t believe all of the things we can see with out AO Dental Scan.
Dentists from around the world are embarking on a new frontier of oral health & assessment with our amazing technology.
AO Scan was originally designed to assess and optimize the entire body, but it has recently been further refined to take a look at oral health.
This article will not touch on the functionality of the device, but rather some holistic ways to naturally rid the teeth of cavities. For more information on the AO Scan Dental Technology by Solex, CONTACT us.
How to Stop or Reverse Tooth Decay and Repair Dental Damage Without Drugs or Dentures
I will explain the reasons behind tooth decay and how you can prevent or reverse it.
It’s conventional to think that once you have a cavity, it can’t be reversed. The sole means of oral health is to have a part of your tooth drilled out and filled with a synthetic substance. In reality, there are natural methods to reverse cavities.
According to a study published in the British Medical Journal, cavities and tooth decay might be reversed with diet.
In a study involving 62 children with cavities, three diet groups were created. Group 1 ate a standard diet plus oatmeal (high in phytic acid). Group 2 ate a normal diet and supplemented with vitamin D. Group 3 ate a grain-free diet and took vitamin D.
Researchers found that people who ate a lot of grains and phytic acid developed more cavities. In addition, Group 2 experienced lower rates of cavities and better oral health. People who followed a grain-free diet and ate nutrient-dense foods like fruit, vegetables, meat, milk, and vitamin D recovered nearly all of their cavities (2).
This research, in addition to the backing of many doctors and dentists, proves that what causes cavities and how to reverse them naturally is incorrect.
Dental health advocate Ramiel Nagel wrote “Cure Tooth Decay” and encouraged his readers to “reverse” their tooth decay and avoid dangerous amalgam fillings by eating nutrient-rich foods. He thought that you can prevent cavities by eating foods high in nutrients.
In this post, I will discuss the reasons behind tooth decay and how it may be avoided or healed.
Tooth Decay is the Cause
The link between diet and oral health is best understood by beginning with one of the most reputable dentists who ever lived, Weston A. Price.
West A. Price was a pioneering figure in dental education and administration in the early 20th century. He was the president of the National Dental Association from 1914 to 1923 and the founder of the American Dental Association.
Dr. Price sought to discover what causes tooth decay in order to better understand its origins. He discovered a link between eating contemporary foods and developing cavities.
When a primitive tribe was exposed to a Western diet, there was little tooth decay, bone loss and chronic illness.
Tooth decay is caused by the bacterium Streptococcus mutants invading the tooth during teeth brushing or ingestion of certain foods.
When carbohydrates (sugars and starches) such as milk, pop, raisins, cakes, or candy are frequently left on the teeth, tooth decay occurs. These acids are produced by bacteria that live in the mouth on these foods. Tooth enamel is destroyed as a result.
The ADA is targeting one of four things that can contribute to tooth decay, when in fact the ADA is only addressing one of these issues.
In addition to brushing twice a day and avoiding sugary foods, tooth decay is caused by not brushing teeth twice a day and sugary foods, according to Dr. Edward Mellanby, Dr. Weston Price and Ramiel Nagel (3).
To address the four aspects of tooth decay that are caused by diet, as well as ways to reverse them naturally, please discuss with me.
How to Stop Recurring Cavities Naturally
While brushing and flossing are critical to maintaining good oral health, there are other approaches you can take to reverse cavities without ingesting fluoride. To begin, here are a few ideas that might assist you.
You must remove sugar from your diet.
It’s critical to keep sugar away from your teeth, as it nourishes oral bacteria that prevent a healthy flow of dental fluids and damages tooth structure by decalcifying or demineralizing it.
Of course, this is only one of the most injurious factors of oral cavity disease.
Make use of raw honey and pure maple syrup, and drink juices in moderation, as too much sugar can lead to tooth decay.
Pay attention to artificial sweeteners because of their health concerns. In short, avoid soda, candy, and baked goods with sugar. Stevia is the new best friend!
Eliminate Phytic Acid
Phytic acid (phytate) is a mineral blocker and enzyme inhibitor present in grains, nuts, seeds, and beans that can cause serious health problems in our diets.
Modern food preparation techniques like sprouting or sourdough fermentation, which eliminate phytic acid, are no longer employed as a result of our abandoning traditional cooking methods.
Sneaky Phytic Acid
Phytic acid, which is present in high amounts in grains and beans, is said to contribute to deficiencies in minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc, and to cause osteoporosis in Research published in the The Lancet says that consuming diets high in phytic acid can cause mineral deficiencies and osteoporosis.
Approximately 80 percent of the phosphorus in grains and beans is bound to phytic acid, which prevents it from being absorbed.
These compounds bind minerals necessary for oral health, such as calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc, thus making them unavailable for use. Consuming foods high in phytic acid reduces magnesium absorption by 60 percent and zinc by 20 percent.
Phytic acid not only prevents you from absorbing minerals in your food, but it also leaches minerals out of your body, bones and teeth! (6)
Grain avoidance and fermented soy avoidance are excellent nutritional guidelines to prevent phytic acid associated problems such as nutrient deficiencies, lack of appetite, and tooth decay. (7)
More on Phytic Acid
Because the phytic acid content in foods grown with modern high-phosphate fertilizers is much higher than those grown using natural compost, eat only organic and GMO-free foods.
If you want to improve your health and reverse cavities naturally, grains, beans, nuts, and soy contain high levels of phytic acid.
However, if you soak or ferment grains or nuts and then sprout them, you may reduce phytic acid by 50% to 100%.
Eat Raw Dairy and Nutrient-Rich Foods to Increase Vitamins and Minerals
Raw dairy products are an excellent way to support healthy dental fluid flow and oral health.
They contain vitamins and minerals that support strong teeth and prevent oral problems.
You should eat raw dairy products at least weekly to keep your teeth cavity-free. Kefir varieties made from goat milk, raw cheese, and grass-fed butter are excellent choices.
It is rich in calcium, vitamin K2, vitamin D3, magnesium, phosphorus, and fat-soluble vitamins.
To prevent tooth decay, you must increase your vitamin and mineral consumption. Here is how I would design an ideal diet:
Use a toothpaste with mineral qualities to help improve the appearance of your teeth.
Fruity flavors aside, there are several varieties of fluoride-free toothpaste that you can purchase for a reasonable cost.
Second, if you want to save a little money and also benefit from a powerful remineralization, try making your own Homemade Demineralizing Toothpaste:
Our favorite among AO Scan Practitioners is Boka Lemon Lavender Toothpaste.
Try Oil Pulling
An oil pulling oral detoxification procedure used by Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, oil pulling has seen a recent boost in popularity in the U.S. With just a tablespoon of oil swished in your mouth for 20 minutes.
This simple oral detoxification procedure has been claimed to cure everything from gingivitis to headaches to systemic diseases like diabetes.
Even if you can only manage three to five minutes, coconut oil or MCT oil and a drop or two of clove and/or tea tree essential oil still offer significant antimicrobial and antifungal ability. Here are some pointers:
Remember not to force yourself to vigorously swish oil in your mouth for the entire time or else you might end up with sore jaw muscles.
Instead, gently move the oil in your mouth and through your teeth without swallowing any of it.
