Are you suffering from toothaches? Then you must have some tooth decay. Yet do not despair, ‘cause you do not necessarily have to get your tooth drilled and have it saved by some synthetic fillings. In fact, your cavities could actually be reversed naturally.
Okay, we can not really return the enamel that was gobbled up during the decay, after all, a tooth is not a living tissue. So, guess that should have been brought up in this video. However, addressing the causes of tooth decay is certainly a good way to stopping further deterioration on its tracks and strengthening ‘em anew.
Obviously, brushing alone is not enough — and more than flossing, change has to actually come from our diet.
Yes, we already know sweets could ruin our teeth. Thus, watch your donuts, ice cream and soda consumption. Meanwhile, we also know that vitamin C helps strengthen our teeth and bones, so try to eat more fruits and veggies. But for many, what’s new here somehow is the ‘oil pulling’ — which is like gargling with coconut or sesame oil. Well, that’s something worth trying.
Still, another reminder that should have been brought up was with regards to the brushing of our teeth. Mind you, this should be done within 30 minutes after eating a meal. Doing so would help prevent bacteria from camping inside your mouth, or teeth and gums for that matter which is really the start of tooth decay. Also, take note that rice consumption is not just about some ‘diabetes watch’ but about ‘tooth decay watch’ as well. Hey, rice is composed of starch, so?
Take care of your teeth! And make a smile your signature accessory.
