Yesterday was a dental cleaning and I remain one of the 70% of the adult patients who do not floss regularly.
Why is it so hard to floss? I leave the dentist challenged to give it my all and adapt a routine of flossing. Laziness gets in the way all to often. Slothfulness, forgetfulness, don’t-want-to-do-it-ness, it hurts my poor fingers as I squeeze them too tight in the floss.View/Add Comments
Yes, carrying on my natural path, tomorrow I begin the removal of dental amalgams from my teeth. Unfortunately, as a child, I had 6 cavities filled at the age of 7, and have had more through the years. I am not sure how many I have now, but they are all over my mouth! When I open my mouth, a sea of silver glints at you.
Royal mouth? No. Decidely not.
My metal amalgam fillings are filled with mercury. Mercury is toxic. We have a fit about putting mercury in pet vaccinations - so why do we put it in humans’ mouths? Somebody figure this out.
I am not advocating the whole world do it, but am personally trying it. Once again, the Prudent Wife is a guinea pig, in a quest for health! Our insurance covers most of the cost, and it can help with infertility!View/Add Comments
Half of mercury contaminated dental amalgams are gone! YES! As much as I wanted to cancel my appointment to begin the process of removing my “silver” dental amalgams, I was brave and went in and did it.
My Personal Protocol When Removing Mercury FillingsView/Add Comments
Growing gorgeous, healthy teeth in kids should not be the mystery that it is today. There are so many positive choices and little daily changes we can all make, that will impact our kids dental health for their entire lifetime. Problem is, we are not aware, and the moment is lost.
While this article is both experiential and some may argue anecdotal, there is a lot of solid research along similar lines particularly that of Westin A. Price. This is a starting point! It is also the reality of what we have done in our younger daughter's life, after we began getting a clue about dental health - a clue that differed from standard wisdom! We have had two dentists in that time period, one back home in California and one in Tennessee, and they have both been pretty flexible about our "oddities" and we appreciate that greatly! Emily consistently gets practically perfect check ups, twice a year, and it appears she went from extremely buck teeth to an almost perfect smile, so what we are doing is working!View/Add Comments
