|"My shiny teeth and me"|
I learned more in 2 hours online than all those visits to the dentist office! "Well, stay away from sugars." Well, most foods turn into sugars in your mouth, so what in the world are we supposed to do?
After reading that, my next question was "How do I keep my mouth at an alkalized PH?" since acidic environments keep bacteria feeling at home. It would make sense to use a mouthwash with a high PH, however most mouthwashes are just slightly alkaline. I plan to use a mixture of milk of magnesia with water and see how that goes. I'm also brushing my teeth with Eco-dent which is essentially flavoured baking soda. That should also help alkalize. I need to find a source of flouride, though.
Second, I asked "What can I do to help my teeth remineralize faster?" because I am going to slip up with the brushing and flossing every now and then. Of course, being diligent with your dental routine helps. Brushing, flossing, and mouth washing twice a day. I need to start taking my vitamins, of course. A lot of suggestions to take cod liver oil or a high vitamin butter that contains vitamin K2 and other fat solubles. I hate taking pills (I only take my vitamins to grow my hair), but for this experiment, I'll do it.
And now, I'm off to weave my hair up.
