What You Can Do To Cure Tooth Decay (Remineralize Teeth) Naturally

That’s right! Tooth decay can be reversed and a tooth can heal itself from cavities. “But that’s not what I have been told!” you say. Well we all have been told that tooth decay cannot be healed and if we have cavities, we need to go to a dentist and have the cavities drilled out of our teeth to be replaced with a filling. Or if the decay is so bad that a filling cannot help, then out with the tooth! We spend hundreds of dollars on dentist bills to save our teeth, but in actual fact we are only delaying the process of losing our teeth someday.

I don’t know about you but I will not accept that! If every other part of our body can heal itself, then why can’t our teeth too? That’s because in actual fact our teeth can heal themselves and all it takes is proper nutrition and balancing our internal system so that our bodies function properly. It’s as simple as that but we were never told that, were we? As long as we are kept in the dark about the right nutrition to take to heal our teeth, we will continue having decaying teeth!

How Do Teeth Actually Heal Themselves?

Well, it’s by returning minerals back to the teeth, hence the term remineralize teeth. Teeth decay in the first place because of demineralization, which means teeth start to loose minerals and that makes them weak and prone to bacteria attack. When teeth are strong, no bacteria can harm them. It doesn’t matter how much you brush your teeth or floss, if your teeth aren’t strong, you will have tooth decay.

How To Remineralize Teeth Naturally?

Well, first of all it is vital that you read this book – Cure Tooth Decay by Ramiel Nagel. It has detailed explanation on what causes tooth decay and what we can do to reverse it. Check it out here!

In the book, lack of nutrition has been listed as the main problem for tooth demineralization. To remineralize teeth, you will need to return minerals back to your teeth, and according to Ramiel Nagel, that is done by changing your daily diet.  He states in his book that our modern diet is lacking in the nutrition needed to mineralize our teeth. A proper diet for strong teeth should have the following:

  • High amounts of fat soluble vitamins A & D
  • Healthy fats
  • Minerals like Magnesium, Copper, Iron, Phosphorus, Calcium and Manganese
  • Cut down on sweetened food and beverages to keep blood sugar level in balance
  • Avoid processed foods
  • Cut down on whole grain foods

The Misconception On Why Tooth Decay

Ramiel Nagel further states that it has been proven in both animal and laboratory experiments that tooth decay is caused by the deficiency in nutrition and not by bacteria, like what we’ve all been told. Tooth cavities happen when tooth dentine and enamel break down and forms a hole in the tooth. Now there is no barrier or protection for the tooth root or pulp from your saliva and food particles. The nerve in the tooth registers pain and tells us we are having a toothache. If the cavity is allowed to progress, the inside of the tooth can become infected, which can lead to an abscess.

Cure Tooth Decay

So, in order to cure tooth decay, you will need to have nutrient rich blood flowing into your teeth. To do this of cause, a nutrient rich diet is needed, as laid down in the book “Cure Tooth Decay”. Your teeth will start to heal themselves as soon as you change your diet.  Some people obtain rapid results, while others, take a little longer. It all depends on how severe your tooth decay is and how nutritious your diet is. He explains in great detail about all this in his book, so nothing is left out unexplained.

Preventing cavities is both possible and achievable. It is not necessary to continue getting dental treatments, year after year, that fail to cure tooth decay, but only give you a temporary band-aid relieve on the effects of tooth decay. The book Cure Tooth Decay will provide you with information, resources and tools to immediately slow down, stop and/or remineralize your teeth.

What Is Tooth Decay And How to Prevent It – According to ADA

According to The American Dental Association (ADA), Tooth decay is the destruction of your tooth enamel, the hard, outer layer of your teeth. It can be a problem for children, teens and adults.

Plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, constantly forms on your teeth. When you eat or drink foods containing sugars, the bacteria in plaque produce acids that attack tooth enamel. The stickiness of the plaque keeps these acids in contact with your teeth and over time the enamel can break down. This is when cavities can form. … Recession of the gums away from the teeth, combined with an increased incidence of gum disease, can expose tooth roots to plaque. Tooth roots are covered with cementum, a softer tissue than enamel. They are susceptible to decay and are more sensitive to touch and to hot and cold. It’s common for people over age 50 to have tooth-root decay. Decay around the edges, or a margin, of fillings is also common for older adults. Because many older adults lacked benefits of fluoride and modern preventive dental care when they were growing up, they often have a number of dental fillings. Over the years, these fillings may weaken and tend to fracture and leak around the edges. Bacteria accumulate in these tiny crevices causing acid to build up which leads to decay. (Source: mouthhealthy.org)

To prevent tooth decay, the ADA has recommended the following tips:

  • Brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Clean between your teeth daily with floss or interdental cleaner.
  • Eat nutritious and balanced meals and limit snacking.
  • Check with your dentist about the use of supplemental fluoride, which strengthens your teeth, and about use of dental sealants (a plastic protective coating) applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (where decay often starts) to protect them from decay.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral examination.(Source:  mouthhealthy.org)

The only thing I could find on how to remineralize teeth from the ADA website mouthhealthy.org is that fluoride helps to rebuild (remineralize) weakened tooth enamel and it also helps to reverse tooth decay in its early stages.

What are teeth made up of?

Humans usually have 20 primary (deciduous or “baby”) teeth and 32 permanent (adult) teeth. Teeth are classified as incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. Incisors are primarily used for biting pieces from foods such as raw carrots or apples and peeled but uncut bananas, while molars are used primarily for grinding foods after they are already in bite size pieces inside the mouth. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tooth_(human)) The Canines are used for tearing food.

Teeth are made up of the following parts:

  • Enamel – Enamel is the hard white substance that crowns the tooth and forms a protective covering over the tooth. It is the only visible part of the tooth that’s above the gums. According to wikipedia.org, 96% of enamel consists of mineral, with water and organic material comprising the rest.[7] The normal color of enamel varies from light yellow to grayish white. At the edges of teeth where there is no dentin underlying the enamel, the color sometimes has a slightly blue tone. Enamel’s primary mineral is hydroxylapatite, which is a crystalline calcium phosphate.[9] The large amount of minerals in enamel accounts not only for its strength but also for its brittleness. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tooth_(human))
  • Dentine – Dentin is the bone-like layer (softer than enamel) that lies between the enamel or cementum and the pulp chamber. Dentine surrounds and protects the pulp chamber and also supports the crown to help teeth keep their shape. It is said that dentine can heal itself, hence it is the beginning stages to remineralize teeth.

Tooth Anatomy

  • Pulp – Pulp is the softest, deepest part of the tooth filled with soft connective tissue. It contains nerves and blood vessels that bring nutrients to the tooth and also transmit signals like hot, cold, or pain between the brain and the soft center of the tooth.
  • Cementum – Cementum is a layer of hard, bone-like tissue that covers the pulp and the root of the tooth. Its yellowish in color and it is softer than either dentin or enamel. It helps to hold the tooth in the socket by giving the periodontal ligament a way to attach itself to the tooth for stability.
  • Crown – This is the visible part of a tooth that’s above the gums.
  • Root – Root is the part that is hidden from sight as it lies below the gum line, where the tooth is anchored into the jawbone.

Remineralize Teeth a.k.a Cure Tooth Decay Naturally

According to wikipedia.org, “Remineralisation of teeth (UK spelling; US remineralization of teeth) is a process in which minerals are returned to the molecular structure of the tooth itself. Teeth are (often) porous allowing fluids and demineralisation beneath the surface of the tooth. When demineralised, these pores become larger”.

When we think of a cure for tooth decay, we would normally think of a visit to the dentist clinic to have our decaying tooth either filled in by the dentist or pulled out if the problem could not be solved by a filling. Sometimes even a root canal may be needed to be done on the tooth. … Well, that’s what I have been told to do by several dentists anyway and I think it’s the same with everyone else.

Nobody told us we could remineralize teeth, right? Heck I never even knew that curing tooth decay is called “remineralize teeth”. But its true. Teeth can heal themselves naturally without having to go to the dentist to have them drilled into or pulled out. This method is sound and it has been researched, tested and proven to be true for many years by certain parties. Ramiel Nagel (Dental Health Advocate and Author of Cure Tooth Decay) shows how to remineralize teeth naturally in his book Cure Tooth Decay. If a person would follow diligently the protocol listed in his book, he or she may never have dental problems again to worry about.
