Dental health

Redpill me on oral hygine. It's time I start taking better care of myself. The food and medical industry are a scam obviously. I want to learn how to prevent and restore cavities. The best solution I found is going on a low carb/keto diet. Also lots of calcium, d3 and k2.. Also heard people make homemade toothpaste with baking soda and coconut oil.

    Keto is overdoing it for tooth help OP, but cutting down on sugar and eating less frequently is a good idea.

      Yeah I know but it's still an option. I don't drink or smoke but did increase my intake of sugar in the past few years and it definately shows. I still eat carbs but avoid refined sugars. Rinse my mouth after every meal and wash my teeth. Thinking of making that homemade toothpaste. Coconut oil is rich in d3 and baking soda neutralizes the acidity within the mouth.

    squish coconut oil in your mouth for 15 minutes a day.

    go to a dentist right now. Dentists are cheap and dental operations are easily scheduled around your insurance. It's unironically the least stressful form of healthcare, with simple up-front costs, fast treatment, and never the hospital experience of
    >thanks for coming in the other day! Surprise, your bill is $4000
    >but if you pay RIGHT NOW it's only $1000
    >oh wait, you have insurance that we finally acknowledged after an entire month? OK your bill is $6000 actually
    >but if you pay RIGHT NOW it's only $1200
    >hello? it's $2000 now. You're really missing out on all these early-payment deals.
    >...
    >geez, you really waited to get an EOB? Then you only have to pay $100 out of pocket, and your insurer is not even paying us $500.
    >frick you
    >bitch
    my dental hygiene advice is to brush your teeth, use a water flosser, and gargle with salt water. At a minimum, never ever go to bed without brushing your teeth. And never ever delay going to the dentist. If your teeth are fricked up, not going to the dentist is the worst thing you can do.
    also, if you're constantly drinking sugary acid, try water.

        cavities are caused by bacteria, usually things turn bad when the parents with cavities show their kids how to use a Pacifier or share a toothbrush.

        Isn't there a drug that kills mouth bacteria forever.

        Xylitol kinda works, the bacteria try do process it since its a sugar then they die from malnutrituon or something like that.

      that couldn't be a one-time thing, because you're constantly putting fresh bacteria sources in your mouth.
      as a constant thing, it'd also be constantly sliding into your gut and entering your blood stream, and after that permanently fricks you up, the best that you'll ever get from the salesmen is "well that's a shame." The more likely response: "several US senators are invested in the manufacturer so your reaction must be unrelated."

      Seems like most are posted already. Supplement/nutrient wise would be vitamin k2 mk7 or mk4, magnesium, calcium,boron and vit d3 already mentioned. Similar stuff for bone density/health. If youre too lazy to floss 2 times a day, do it at night at least.

      Wut?

      Apparently its a one time thing, its introducing a gmo bacteria that will populate your mouth continuously until you nuke your microbiome though. Try googling lantern biowork. Shit expensive.

    father is a dentist

    things he recommended me and my siblings when we were young:
    -visit the dentist once/twice a year only for professional tooth cleaning and/or emergency aspects (pain, swollen gums etc.)
    -soft (electric) toothbrushes only, circular motion and dont be afraid to actually brush/touch the gum. it should be used as a metric, it should not bleed from a soft toothbrush. if it does, something's not in the right state
    -toothpaste with xylit (xylitol in english), flouride is ok/preferable but be vary of overall exposure of it (drinking water, toothpaste, etc)
    -also if convenient and not rude in the moment, xylitol based chewing gums after a meal (i.e. after lunch when you are not at home to brush your teeth)
    -mouth washes are a scam and really bad for oral hygiene
    -instead use 1 drop of tea tree oil, diluted with water to swish around for several minutes. you can also gurgle but obviously not drink it
    -GOOD flossing is really helpful, however he acknowledges it is time intensive. An alternative are floss sticks; 50% usefulness of actual good flossing, but more convenient; all in all a lazy man's 'ok' alternative
    -completely white teeth are unnatural, odd-looking and screams of narcissistic tendencies, he rips them off in his practice because they are so unhinged

    do with that what you want, he is practicing for 33 years, 14 as a sole practice owner, had offers of teaching in uni but declined

      ah forgot the obvious part:
      -twice/thrice a day
      -try not to eat immediatly after brushing teeth, same goes for drinking (water is fine/ok)

      odd/curious one which i have never read about:
      -strong advocate to not rinse your mouth after brushing teeth with water. Especially at night, just spit out the excess accumulated toothpaste and leave a slight residue

        I have heard about not rinsing after brushing, but usually in the context of finishing your nightly routine, then doing a final swish of your mouth before sleeping.

      Seems like good advice. Never heard about rinse being a scam. What about the bacteria in your mouth? Is rinse just for smell?

      I've heard about not rinsing out all of the toothpaste so that layer has time to both remineralize the teeth and block bacterial growth and not using mouthwash from a couple different dentists as well

    Here's the single best thing I've learned: keep a waterpick and a bottle of food-grade hydrogen peroxide next to your kitchen sink so that every time you eat and go to do the dishes you can blast the food out of your teeth right there (only use a little splash of hyd peroxide in the water). I do this after every meal and last time I got my teeth clean the lady remarked that there was basically nothing to clean and wanted to know how recently I had them cleaned before- when I told her over a year and a half ago she was like well whatever you're doing keep doing it, there's no plaque at all. I also told her that I only brush and floss once per day, right before I go to bed, but that I waterpick the food out of my teeth every time I eat and she didn't like that but said "well, it seems to be working, so I guess it's fine (but pls brush more)"

    just floss HARD once every day and you will be ok
    brush your teeth well once every day as well
    listerine twice a day
    use a tongue cleaner twice a day too
    thats it
    >but you should floss/brush your teeth 3 times a day!
    yeah, but most people won't do it.
    it's better to do it in an intense manner once a day than 3 times a day in a sloppy manner.

    I brush my teeth once every 2 weeks to massage the gums mostly. No toothpaste either, I do floss a few times a week, but that is mostly for gums, too. No cavities, ever. I guess I am an exception, but what I have noticed since going Carnivore a few years ago is almost no buildup of plaque on the teeth and no gunk on the tongue. Any gum disease I may have had is completely gone. I go to the dentist every 5 years or so after being nagged at by my wife and every time the dentist remarks at how healthy my teeth are if a bit stained and overgrown with tartare on the backs of the teeth.

    Oddly, good dental health is mostly about getting sufficient vitamins and nutrients in your diet and brushing daily. That's all there is to it.

    Try to limit carbs to before brushing your teeth in the morning or before bed.
    I only eat two meals it's really easy, snacks should be low in carbs or bound up with fiber; fruit is generally fine as long as you aren't a moron and eat an entire bag of apples or something.

      >fruit is generally fine as long as you aren't a moron and eat an entire bag of apples
      lol
      They've done studies showing eating fruit laden with sugar not only doesn't feed cavities but it reverses them.

      Just stop eating processed shit dum dum

    My personal journey
    >have tons of cavities growing up because of shit dental hygiene
    >brush every day, but rarely floss
    >around ~24 years old lose dental insurance
    >paranoid, I get a Philips Sonicare and brush twice a day
    >begin flossing EVERY NIGHT
    >fast forward 6 years
    >I finally go to the dentist
    >scared shitless because my teeth are covered in brown stains
    >get thorough cleaning and X-ray
    >teeth are perfectly health, the stains were just stains
    My takeaway is FLOSS EVERY NIGHT. The Sonicare is nice and makes your teeth feel shiny but flossing is key. Leaving food to rot between your teeth at night WILL give you cavities, as had been the case for me most of my childhood and early adult life.

    I just chuckled as I remembered that every moronic classmate I had who claimed to have "good teeth genetics" and that "they dont need to go to dentist" now all have rotted teeth.
