    Genetics, also brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. Get a water pick and use it on low settings.
    >are some toothpastes better than others?
    If you have certain conditions yes. Otherwise not really.
    >is flossing essential?
    yes
    >is mouthwash good for you?
    If you like it. Not necessary.
    I have never had a cavity in my life. My dentist said it is just genetics.

        Flossing is necessary to break apart plaque inbetween your teeth. The brush cannot reach them if your teeth are normally sized and appropriately spaced. Sometimes you may even need to floss with dental floss to break it apart and then use a water pick to flush it away.
        If you do not floss plaque and bacteria will build up in the gum pockets under your teeth and eat away at your gums, tooth roots, and eventually your jaw bone.

        Because this needs to be said, if you bleed from flossing or brushing your teeth you need to continue doing it gently until it stops. Bleeding is a result of inflammation of your gums from fighting the infecting plaque. If you only have a small amount of bleeding it will go away soon with regular care.
        Taking care of your gums will also help repair them if you are early enough. It will just reattach to the tooth if you remove all the plaque and keep it clean.

          you sound like you know what you're talking about.
          I have a permanent retainer across the back of my bottom from teeth and the little bit of exposed teeth underneath the bar has some whitish yellowish build-up that looks like plaque, but it won't go away even if I brush the shit out of it really hard. presumably this is tartar? how do I get rid of it?

            You should have regularly scheduled teeth cleanings, about 6 months apart, to have a professional clean it for you. This is partially genetic and just how having an extra thing in your mouth works. You can break it up a bit with floss and a water pick and keep it manageable between professional cleanings that way.

            >brushing twice a day
            meme shit unless one of them is without toothpaste
            The entire point of toothpaste is to remineralize your teeth, you dont need to do that twice per day

            You need it when you wake up and when you go to bed because when you sleep is when the plaque bacteria have the most opportunity to grow. Morning brushing gets rid of what built up, night brushing ensures a minimalist environment for plaque to grow.

      thanks for the legit answer; a few relatives have a water pick and rave about them but I thought it was just a meme
      I find it's sometimes difficult to get all the plaque at the gumline without the brush aggravating my gums somewhat, maybe the water pick would help with that

      see
      it is mostly genetics, but brushing twice a day is the most beneficial improvement you can make if you aren't doing it already (flossing is of course important as well).

            the only advantage to denying the obvious reality that how big you are and how big your muscles can grow is mostly genetically determined is that you can convince yourself to train harder, which may improve your physique by 1 or 2 percentage points
            everyone you know who has been training consistently for years has looked the same for years. if your twin had a totally different lifting routine from you, and an elite athlete's twin followed exactly the same routine as you, down to the rep ranges, the diet, the sleep, the micronutrients, the stress levels, who's physique would be more similar to yours?

      is it actually genetics? my parents have very shitty teeth, like, they had to get teeth removed and shit. But, I have fantastic teeth. They aren’t straight, mainly because i was a mouth breathing retard child but they have gotten better as i grown and just one day started to have proper tongue placement and shit. but, other than needing braces, my teeth are fine. my parents are also alcoholics kek. or were.

          Fluoride, once bonded with aluminum, will easily pass through the blood-brain barrier and contribute to Alzheimer’s. Use toothpaste with hydroxyapatite rather than unnatural fluoride based toothpastes.

      Fluoride is nearly the only proven ingredient to support dental health and longevity. It reduces the rate of caries significantly. Make sure your toothpaste has fluoride, and when you finish brushing, don't rinse out your mouth. There's also Xylitol which comes in some gum like Trident.

      Otherwise, abrasive foods are said to aid in dental longevity, like how dogs need to chew bones, rawhide, etc

        Listen to him. No pain can mean that the pulpa is dead. One time I fix a cavity, and when they opened tooth and blow, they ask if I feel pain. I said yes. Dentist says good, this means that the tooth is not "dead". But, a cavity does not need to hurt. But it is selfexplanatory that a hole in the tooth is bad.

        Maybe dental care is expensive in your country. In my country the government subsidize dental health.

          Smart move. Dental problems are relative cheap if caught early. My friend paid almost 2000 dollars to fix his, with government subzides since he neglected his theet for 6 years.

          When I catch bad problem early I pay maybe 1/10 of that amount. 200 dollar/eur. It hurts but you need teeth.
          But I avoid sugar and use snus so maybe I have advantage.

    Brushing helps, flossing helps, waterpiks and mouthwash help. Just like with weight, the biggest factor what you eat/drink.

    Do you drink coffee or tea? Sugary drinks like soda? Do you eat sugary treats? Do you smoke or use to acco products? Do you chew sugary gum? All of those things affect dental health.

    Bacterial make up of your saliva is a good predictor of cavities. Best thing you can do is thoroughly brush daily. If you notice any bleeding it's best to use mouthwash in addition. Mouthwash is great at healing bleeding and infected gums.

    Never had a cavity and currently 34. Here's the deal: moderate the amount of sugar you consume;" especially if it's refined. Attempt to avoid all refined sugar. Occasionally, this will be highly inconvenient or annoying. In those cases, let it slide. Otherwise avoid refined sugars. Raw honey is okay unrefined sugar is also fine as an occasional treat. Get plenty of nutrients. Be sure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Brush and floss at night. Flossing is especially important if your teeth are tight.
    I don't have a citation, but there was a study done with healthy teeth in a Petri dish. One tooth was submerged in honey and the other was in sugar water. The sugar water tooth decayed and developed cavities the honey tooth was unchanged over time. What was understood through that study is that refined sugar pulled minerals from the tooth and unrefined honey does not. I wish they would redo this study with pure cane juice and refined white sugar, but it appears that the denatured molecules of refined sugar are seeking minerals to create homeostasis and teeth are made of minerals so they just pull from whatever is near them. Since real science is never settled, for now, just avoid those white crystals and other forms of refined sweeteners such as corn syrup.

    Here's the redpill on dental health
    Dentists are subhuman scum that lie constantly. Nobody becomes a dentist because they love teeth. They love money, and they know nobody is going to question them when they say you need a cavity filled or a crown made or your wisdom teeth out. They collect a fat paycheck and you get unnecessary work done.
    Brush twice a day, floss, and use flouride mouthwash. Your teeth will be fine your entire life. Stop wasting money and mutilating your healthy teeth by going to these scumfuck greedy bastard dentists.

      >Dentists are subhuman scum that lie constantly.
      I'm 45.
      First time went to the dentist when I was 12 in 1990. Apparently I needed two fillings even though my teeth were relatively new. These were mercury amalgams which probably caused me health problems subsequently.
      The second time I went to the dentist was in 2002 when I was 25 because I legit had a bad tooth that had to be root canalled and crowned. But while I was there he said my wisdom teeth all needed to come out. The last wisdom tooth he said was at an angle and I needed to go to hospital for surgery while unconscious. I said maybe later and never went. The last wisdom tooth actually grew into a normal tooth.
      The third time I had to go to the dentist was this year because the gum around my remaining wisdom tooth was getting sore for the past few months so I told the dentist just to remove the tooth.
      He said all my other teeth were fine.

      The question is how did I not get any caries in the 32 years since my first visit where I apparently had 2 teeth needing fillings? These two teeth would have been 5 years old max at my age of 12. But then from the age of 12 to 45 I only go to the dentist once and no other teeth develop caries (apart from the rotting tooth that needed a root canal) during that long period of time.
      I think I didn't need those silver fillings when I was 12, and they probably caused issues with my cognition due to the mercury vapor constantly leaking. The dentist just put them in because they were bored or something and this may have caused long term health detriments to me.

    I use a toothpaste called Biorepair that I order online (the paste is made in Italy.) Toothpaste companies are legally obligated to sell paste with enamel-repairing chemicals ONLY to doctors/dentists in the US but it can be sold to the consumer in Europe.
    Wait at least half an hour before brushing your teeth. It takes around this long for saliva to break everything down and you don't want to scrape hard pieces of food across your gums.
    Slightly yellow teeth is healthy so don't be alarmed if your teeth don't look like a model's. It's mostly America where the cosmeticization has arisen and where the white = healthy thought comes from.
