what are your teeth problems

I have an abscessed molar on my upper right side and I'm probably going to get it extracted rather than going through the root canal and crown process only to have a dead tooth in my mouth. Plus ten cavities. I don't know why I have such fucked up teeth. Doc says I don't get enough fluoride cuz I drink Reverse osmosis water

Is it worth it to get a root canal?

I've had 4 root canals done, supposedly, they hurt, but never were an issue with me. Cheaper than implants. Dosnt necessarily need a crown after R. C.

Toothbrushes & toothpaste were invented in West (by god!) Virginia, anywhere else would of been called teethbrushes & teethpaste.

99 problems but teeth problems aint one.

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 have one tooth that's like half a tooth, and another that's chipped. No fillings, tho. Never had a root canal or anything. It's cool having no metal in your mouth because you can wad up aluminum foil and chew it to freak people out and it doesn't do anything.

I've had one cavity but I drink a lot of tap water and brush fairly regularly. I do not floss often enough I don't think. I should go do that now.

Can't afford a dentist.
But my teeth seem to be doing fine.

I believe that teeth should be covered just like health care seeing as its part of our health...


Stupid rich overpaid dentists.

By eating right (minimizing or abolishing refined sugars, as example) and routinely performing basic maintenance, you pretty much don't have to go to the dentist.

I haven't been in 6 years. No cavities. No problems.


Although I might go in soon for some vanity fueled whitening treatment. I went on a smoking + coffee binge last semester and got some stainage going on.

I had to get 8 teeth pulled and surrender my toothbrush and dental plan to become a southerner.

My dentist once told me that eating sweets didn't hurt your teeth any more than any other type of food. I guess decaying food of any type produces the bacteria that rots your teeth.

That's interesting I never knew that. I knew white rice and white bread were also particularly bad.. according to wikipedia it's any "fermentable carbohydrate", which suggests to me that includes most foods high in sugar.

I would imagine that a piece of salmon is less hard on your teeth than a snickers bar.
If I'm wrong about that, well then my entire conception of everything is in jeopardy.

It really depends on if your town added fluoride to the tap water.

If not, you're mouth is probably in worse shape.

It seems absurd!

I can't find any information that supports what your dentist claims. I can find examples of foods that are bad for your teeth, moreso than sweets, that most people wouldn't expect are bad for your teeth.

But I can find nothing whatsoever claiming that any other food is just as bad for your teeth as sweets.

I can fact, most of what I find is information on foods that are beneficial for your teeth. In fact, after reading about salmon and teeth I found this wonderful quote:
"Research in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that the omega-3 fish oils DHA and EPA can reduce the risk of periodontitis —advanced gum disease that damages not only the gums but also the bones that support the teeth."



Ain't nothing out there saying sweets do anything beneficial for your teeth.


Do you have any sources you could provide me?

In fact, if you're cool with it, tell me your dentist's name so I can inquire from him the source of this audacious claim I've been presented with.

Perhaps your dentist is being deceitful, with the aim of generating more business?

It's pretty simple.

At least in America, a steady diet of corn syrup/fructose without the counter effects of fluoridated water will erode the enamel of your teeth.


But just like the boob job, we have reliable implants.

Ah. Well I must then thank you for your patience.

As a simple Canadian, I haven't been instilled with the wisdom of industry, and thus have not bared witness to the miracle of interchangeable parts. I realize now that my respect and consideration of parts of my own body must appear juvenile to you all, but please understand, I thought them irreplaceable.

From now on I shall consume freely the processed nectar of corn, and hydrate myself liberally with my Lord's augmented liquids, that in their flowing provision, fortify the lacquer of my cheap, white gnashers.

If you have any dental school nearby they can often do work for cheap/free. Waiting time is measured in months though.

I have no doubt that your diet affects your overall health which include the teeth and gums. I don't think it's direct contact that makes the omega 3 fish oils beneficial to gum health. My dentist's point was that you'll have cavities if you leave any type of food in between your teeth regardless if it's sweets or vegetables. It makes sense to me. Stop flossing and brushing and only eat healthy foods and see if you get any cavities.
