My teeth have always been sensitive. Not to mention there is a family history on my mother's side of teeth decalcifying & breaking.
Interestingly enough I have not had any cavities that I know of and have never had a filling or any kind of work done on my teeth aside from a regular cleaning.
I do however believe that a lot of my issue with my teeth is due to having had major acid reflux from undiagnosed Celiac disease for many years, and on top of that a bad diet through out my childhood and teen years.
Which brings me to this....my teeth have stopped breaking, and a not anywhere near as sensitive as before. If I go from a bowl of hot soup to drinking ice cold water I will get a little sensitivity. However, I couldn't drink lukewarm water without getting tooth sensivity before, not to mention ice cold water which would send shooting pain through my jaw and face.
It was a total bummer.
My teeth are feeling better, and here is partly why:
1. Went gluten free/ dairy free to correct issues with Celiac disease & no longer have acid reflux.
2. I eat a healthy diet rich in veggies & don't eat sugar.
3. I take a calcium supplement.
4. I do not use chemical tooth whiteners.
5. I no longer brush with fluoride.
These are huge things in the transformation of the health of my teeth.
Through this series I am going to take you through various natural ways of taking care of teeth & certain things that I avoid in tooth care products.
I hope that you enjoy this series & maybe gain some knowledge on self tooth car, as I am spending a lot of time on this series.
Be Happy Healthy & Strong,
