Cure Cavities, Ancient Cavity Cure Rediscovered

It is not true that conventional dental treatments and fluoride are the only ways to heal your teeth from cavities. When struck with the diagnoses of a dental cavity, most people feel totally helpless or powerless to do anything about it themselves. The common belief about tooth decay is that once you have a cavity, the tooth cavity cannot heal or reverse. The only solution seems to be to rush off to the Houston dentist and have a synthetic material placed in your teeth to cover the breached tooth structure.

People go to Houston dentists for regular check-ups, or because they have toothache pain or gum swelling. The Houston dentist takes x-rays and then, many times, informs you of the dreadful news - you have a cavity. But you need not worry. For a few hundred dollars, the newest filling material can be placed in your mouth and the problem is solved.

Or is it?

Know as the world's greatest Houston dentist, Weston A. Price, although you probably haven't heard of him, he made a detailed accounting of how to cure cavities, and how to prevent those toothaches forever. Dr. Price wrote dental manuals that were carried on board of Navy ships, and was head of research at the forerunner to the American Dental Society.

What is Dental Surgery?

A Houston dentist is a D.D.S., which means a Doctor of Dental Surgery. The way a Houston dentist cures a cavity is with a minor surgery on your tooth. The methodology involves drilling a bigger hole in your mouth and then filling the hole with a synthetic material. As a result of a dental surgery, the pain may temporary cease, but the cause never gets addressed. Let me explain: In an extensive study of over 15,000 people, the Centers for Disease Control published some statistics regarding tooth decay that should be cause for alarm for most people. On average, people ages 16-19 have 11.6% of all teeth affected by decay at one time. This steadily increases, and by the time adults are over age 60, more than half of their teeth (62.36%) have been affected by decay and a total of 93.1% of all people over the age of 60 have had teeth affected by tooth decay. If brushing, flossing, massive fluoridation campaigns, and dental surgery were effective in preventing tooth decay and toothache pain after visiting the Houston dentist the problem would never return.

The Current Cavity Theory is Wrong

The current theory of tooth decay according to the American Dental Association:

"[Tooth decay] occurs when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) such as milk, pop, raisins, cakes or candy are frequently left on the teeth. Bacteria that live in the mouth thrive on these foods, producing acids as a result. Over a period of time, these acids destroy tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay."

There are several problems with this theory.

#1) No matter how much you brush, it is impossible to keep your mouth free of bacteria - supposedly we breathe in over 14,000 germs per hour.

#2) Some groups of Indigenous people who had fermentable carbohydrates (bread or grains) stuck on their teeth all of the time, without any brushing or flossing, were mostly or entirely free of tooth decay.

#3) Bacteria do not eat processed sugars because of the lack of nutrients found in them. In fact, sugars are processed not only to prevent spoilage, but also to prevent consumption by bacteria. It does not make sense that these nutrient-void sugars which destroy bacteria in the normal world, somehow miraculously become food for bacteria once in your mouth.

#4) Bacteria does not eat processed flour for the same reason. Processed flours are designed to prevent spoilage, and thus the minerals (bacteria food) are removed.

#5) Foods that bacteria like to eat include milk, vegetables, meat, fish, and fruit; these are not commonly attributed with being the causes of tooth decay.

#6) The large CDC survey described above shows that despite all of our prevention efforts, on average about 90% of our population has had tooth decay at least one time. This means that even in the best case, our preventative methods only work for 10% of the people.

What Really Causes Tooth Decay

After reading and studying the work of Weston Price, late Harvard Professor Earnest Hooten said we need to consider the habits and ways of the Indigenous people, because "It is store food that has given us store teeth." Time and time again, Dr. Price documented the tragic plight of Indigenous people coming into contact with modern industrialization. Many of these groups enjoyed generation after generation of life without significant tooth decay. But after the arrival of industry and commerce, and with them modern foods, their teeth began to degenerate very rapidly Published data from food surveys done by the United States Department of Agriculture show that a significant portion of the population is under nourished.

It should not be surprising why. We eat junk food, processed food, denatured food, and chemically-laden foods. These foods lack the special fat-soluble vitamins which Indigenous people would, at times, go great lengths to obtain. That means if you want to be healthy, you need to take time and effort to pay attention to what you eat. You cannot just go to the local convenience store and expect that a packaged food product is designed to give you optimal health. It is important to reflect upon the long term consequences of each and every bite of processed and denatured food you eat. The most deadly forms of processed and denatured foods are processed sugar and processed flour. Those are found in breakfast cereals, packaged foods, pastries and breads, soda, and sweetened drinks. By removing these foods from your diet, your immunity to cavities will increase. But that's not the whole story, read about five tooth mineralizing protocols that use whole foods in "Cure Tooth Decay: Heal and Prevent Cavities With Nutrition" by Ramiel Nagel.
