Default My teeth are remineralizing.

I've been working on it for a few years. Six or seven years ago, before I ever got pregnant, I had starter cavities between my teeth. I switched to Weleda's Calendula toothpaste. Has calcium in it, and no fluoride. The starter cavities went away, and so did my tooth sensitivity. I stopped getting cleanings because they seemed to make everything worse.

My top two front teeth were still nearly see through and cracking. I started taking cal-mag. One tooth is nearly completely white now, and the other is getting there. The cracks are still there, but not as visible now that my teeth aren't translucent.

I've been sprinkling xylitol over my toothpaste.

I don't drink any sodas at all. I do drink honey sweetened teas.

I have no tooth pain. No cavities. And I've been through three pregnancies.

I was all kinds of thrilled to find xylitol...till I realized it was made from corn, and I have a corn allergic child. *sigh*

I only added xylitol in the last year. It was not the key ingredient here. And I do use one specifically made from birch.

Default Re: My teeth are remineralizing.

I didn't even know there was a such thing as xylitol made from birch! I'm gonna have to go shopping!
so weleda calendula toothepaste, cal/mag supplements, and no sodas..and the xylitol if I can find it. I think I can do that. I have a cavity forming right between my front teeth, it's so embarassing!

My DH is addicted to soda and has cavities all the time. Somebody other than me please tell him to stop doing this to himself.

I wonder if I could get him to take cal/mag. Yeah, right.

THANK YOU so much for posting this. I REALLY don't want to go to the dentist and am hoping I could start this to maybe reverse some of the small cavities I know are there.

Default Re: My teeth are remineralizing.

I just realized - I used to have really sensitive teeth. The dentist is really painful. But I haven't had that problem in a while and my last appointment (about a month ago) wasn't painful at all. Maybe it's the cal/mag I've been taking.
