My primary dentist says it's actually more important to floss than it is to brush, but brushing is far more convenient. I followed up on this statement with several other dentists, at the same practice and others. Most of these agreed.

To my knowledge I've only had one cavity. Had all four of my wisdom teeth out when I was a teenager. Had braces as a kid. I used to wear a mouth guard at night because I used to grind my teeth, but I don't have that problem anymore. I like sugar free gum and I drink tapwater with fluoride in it like any good god-fearing American ought.

Stop flossing and brushing and only eat healthy foods and see if you get any cavities.

Specificity is so important. This is much clearer.

Carbonated soft drinks. They add (lots of) phosphoric acid, it gives that 'soft drink' flavor to 'em, and it is really bad for your teeth. Best (I do it) to rince the mouth soon after drinking one.

I still remember the story of this guy my ex knew.
Got in the door finished his can of coke.. Took a nice old swig of Tim Hortons coffee grabs his girlfriend and lays a big old sloppy open mouth kiss on her...mouth...

She ends up running to the bathroom and throwing up hahahaha.

I asked. I told him that I knew this old dude from California on my pot forum who was concerned about sperm related cavities but was afraid to ask his own dentist for fear of outing himself.

Thank god.

Never had a cavity or anything really. All four wisdom teeth came in fine too, except one got infected cause it got stabbed by a tortilla chip, but my sister made me some hippy herbal concoction to put on the tooth and it healed right up.

And rubix ive been only drinking distilled water for like 5-10 years now and still have no problems.
And don't worry you are not lacking in fluoride exposure as it is still in every other water based liquid you drink/brush your teeth with etc. If you are still worried though just get a fluoride treatment done at your dentist, which is far more efficient than taking it in your water.

Id bet it has more to do with genetics and possibly your diet as a child/now etc.

Do you take good care of your teeth?
Look into getting a good elec toothbrush and even a water pik. Also check out oil pulling with coconut oil.
i thought i took good care of my teeth. i brush 2-4 times a day with water and fluoride toothpaste. my dentist did say it mostly has to do with frequency of eating, considering i usually have 5000k plus per day. also, marijuana apparently has a role he says supposedly. maybe cuz it can cause dry mouth?

still thinking i should try a root canal since my surrounding teeth might be negatively affected should the tooth be removed.

i am going to start using a home made mouthwash with TSP, baking soda, coconut oil, cloves etc

i tried the oil pulling once but found it detesting swishing around oil for 15 minutes. losing teeth is also shitty, though.

Oil pulling gets much less gross after doing it once or twice.

And you dont have to do it for that long btw.

For swishing around coconut oil on mah gums and teeth?
Just another type of mouth rinse..

One that the ADA strangely loves to demonize for lack of research(though there is some along with some on lauric acid), and unfortunately the "natural" crazies ran wild with online only fueling that.

Ask anyone who does it though and they'll tell you they noticed an overall increase in mouth health. Many dentists are finally starting to open up to it as well.

Modern dentistry is extremely conservative, in that new or different ideas face a tough road before being embraced. There has been very little change since the fluoride movement. Interesting preventive and treatment methods on the horizon though.

Man, that's the damn truth right there. Yeah, dentists have a big investment in machinery, but don't make the patients with no dental insurance foot the bill.

I can't believe Medicare doesn't consider dental work crucial. I've noticed since getting older, my eyes & my teeth need several things done. I've been getting by on drug store eyeglasses, which do the trick since they're just needed for reading small print.

My teeth, though, could use some help. Fuckin Methadone has really done a number on them. My wife said Medicare would cover major medical, like getting them pulled & then I'd have to cover any replacement. Has anyone heard of something called Clear Choice? I priced them & they're really not overly expensive (good ones = $1,000) & the procedure can be done in 1 day. They look fine from what I saw.

I'll need more investigating before deciding. Damn pain medicine!
