How To Detox Chemicals After You Go To The Dentist

dentist-and-patient

When you are faced with a serious tooth problem, such as a cavity, chronic toothache, or need fillings replaced, you have some serious decisions to make if you are a health conscious person. While there are natural remedies to soothe toothaches or to help get rid of cavities, a trip to the dentist is sometimes necessary. If you have a serious problem with your teeth and need work done, try to seek out a dentist who practices under holistic dentistry or biological dentistry.

 

A holistic dentist typically tries to evaluate you as a whole and uses mercury-free substances for fillings. They also utilize digital X-rays and other technologies that aren’t as harmful to your body. If you are unable to find a dentist who practices holistic dentistry, then you are left with conventional dentists who will probably use harmful chemicals that will enter into your body, in order for you to have your teeth or tooth worked on. This is sometimes a better option than trying to suffer through the pain, which can be excruciating. If you are going to go to one of these dentists, you can take activated charcoal for the next couple days to draw out the chemicals. Another option is participating in the Full Body Cleanse to remove toxins and chemicals from your entire body.

 

Cavities:

Cavities are caused by a combination of bacteria and food. Plaque is a clear substance that is always forming on your teeth and gums. The plaque on your teeth has bacteria, which feed on the sugars from the food you eat. The bacteria produce acids that attack your teeth for about 20 minutes after you eat, and this can cause tooth decay or cavities, especially if your oral hygiene isn’t good.

 

Clove Oil For Cavities:

When you experience minor or even major toothache pain, you can rub essential oil of clove on the problem tooth or teeth until you can get yourself to a dentist. You may want to dilute a few drops of clove essential oil in a few drops of organic, virgin coconut oil, as the pure essential oil may be intense for sensitive gums or teeth.

 

Oil Pulling:
Oil pulling, which is a popular Ayurvedic remedy, can help reduce the bacteria that causes cavities. You can use sesame oil or organic, virgin coconut oil. Place 1 tablespoon of the desired oil in your mouth and swish it around for about 15-20 minutes. You can do this every morning before brushing your teeth for about a month to help remedy cavities.

 

Post Dentist Visit Recovery:

Cilantro helps to counteract mercury toxicity and chemicals in the body. If you still have mercury in your mouth, it may be beneficial to start drinking freshly made vegetable juice that contains cilantro. You can also add cilantro to salsa, guacamole, salad dressings, or other dishes to help remove mercury from your system. You can’t go wrong by consuming fresh cilantro.

    Q: In the past two months I have lost two molars, these molars had mercury fillings. I have poor iron deficiency, due to loss of blood due to having uterine fibroids. I do believe that my molars dropped out due to this deficiency, and stress. I do get tooth pain from the resulting piece of the molar that is still inside of my mouth. I have to take acetominiphen to stop the pain. I read your article in which you said that you have not been to a dentist in many years, and your teeth are just fine. A dentist told me that if I do not have the molars replaced the the rest of my teeth will spread apart. I am unsure what to do. Do I have two spaces without teeth? Do I leave my other teeth spread apart? Do I leave that area alone? Do I get fake stuff in my mouth? I have begun the process of oil pulling to help with cleansing. I don't know how many times a day I should oil pull? I will be purchasing a tongue scraper, and I have begun to floss more often. I need some advice on proper dental care. Also how often should one have their teeth professionally cleaned, or is there a process in which I can learn to professionally clean my teeth myself, rather than paying a dental hygienist.

    A:

    Dental care is pretty allopathic, and you need to make a choice about the piece of molar in your mouth. Are you willing to deal with your teeth spreading. While my teeth have been fine since 1994, I still live with the damage of my past (I have two teeth that were pulled and have empty space where the molars were - I didn't want plastic or anything synthetic in my mouth). The last time I went to the dentist, he did major damage trying to pull my tooth out. A piece of teeth went through my gums, and slightly protruded through my mouth. It eventually healed, but I learned my lesson. So you have a choice to make, Beloved! Only you can make that decision. You don't want to live with pain though! That's why I got my two teeth pulled - the pain was unbearable! I've been fine ever since due to my vegan and raw foods diet. I know brush my teeth with Dherbs.com Herbal Tooth Powder and sometimes Activated Charcoal. These help keep the teeth very white and the mouth hygienic. You only oil pull once a day, or if you oil pull more than once, you only do so on an empty stomach.

    Q: My son who is now 11 has a double bottom tooth meaning he still has his baby teeth along with some of his permanent teeth, this is evident in only my 2 sons. I want to extract the excess teeth. My dentist suggests braces and says nothing can be done as its genetics....neither myself or his father has that issue. Help! We are live food eaters and non diary consumers. 95% of our intake is healthy and my children have never been vaccinated. Thank you.

    A:

    This is a dental issue, Beloved, and no herbs can help correct this matter unfortunately. My views on the dentist are expressed in the articles "BEWARE OF TOOTHPASTE AND DENTAL HYGIENE PRODUCTS" and "I DON'T WANT TO GO TO THE DENTIST BUT I HAVE TO!"

    Q: I had 2 jaw bone (cavitations) surgeries, from holistic dentist, a dentist I went to prior caused major trauma to the bone and 3 days later my whole face was on fire, this has been 3 years since this happened, he might have pushed the infection I had in my system through the nerves, I am a whole lot better but still experience pain, pressure and fogginess in my head causing me not to think straight at times, pain behind my ears and in lower jaw, as well as discomfort and pressure. I would like to know what product would be good for this, the brain and heart circulation herb? I pretty much have to stay on a raw food diet to maintain my health but this is not totally getting rid of the problem, there is inflammation and pain in my jaws if I eat the wrong thing. Could you please guide me in the right direction?

    A:

    Herbs to try: BRAIN TUNER, NERVES FORMULA, MSM SULFUR, and HEADACHE AND PAIN FORMULA. Also, purchase OXY-DROPS for your drinking water (10-20 drops per glass).

    Q: My partner has a serious problem with his gums. He is only thirty three and he's losing most of his teeth. The dentist keeps removing them and he has some implants. What can he take to build his gums up and his teeth stop falling out?

    A: His body is most likely too acidic. He needs to drastically change his diet to more alkaline in order to start healing.

    Also, he should start by gargling with warm water, sea salt and hydrogen peroxide 2-3 times a day.

    An herbal toothpowder will also help him. A good toothpowder stops gums from bleeding!

    Q: The dentist stated "the nerve in my tooth, is causing my tooth ache". Therefore, the nerve in the tooth needs to be removed. This is caused by tooth decay, and poor dental hygiene (flossing, sweets). I am taking Wild Oak Bark, will this help?

    A:

    I can understand what the dentist said, but why not attempt work on your nerves (Nerves Formula and Tea), drinking Cilantro and Parsley juice, drinking other vegetable juice, and changing your diet? Dap some Clove oil on to the toothache (use a q-tip and rub on tooth and gums). Try everything in your power before you give in to dental surgery, Beloved! Brush your teeth with Herbal Tooth Powder and Carbon. Read our 2 dental articles too!

    Q: I am 42 years old. My teeth are not the straightest, but they seem heathy an are white. The dentist recommended that I get braces or a visalign to straighten mainly the bottom teeth. He stated "As we age roots may get twisted and it could lead to problems." I have the 2 bottom canine, that are almost sideways. What would be your opinion be regarding correcting this based on possibilities?

    A:

    Great question! I would be able to answer better if I could actually see your teeth. The alignment of our canines protect all our other teeth. They are critical. Two things for sure happen when the canines come in rotated. One, they do not function fully and therefore all your other teeth can get unusual forces placed on them. We call these forces interferences. Secondly the root of the canine can end up very close to the root of the lateral next to it. When this occurs, bacteria can travel down the side of the tooth, under the gum and increase the possibility that you get bone loss between the two teeth (canine and lateral). The bone is very thin between those roots when the canine is rotated. Also, more plaque accumulates because it is often difficult to clean between the canine and lateral.

    These are the reasons I would suggest moving forward with braces if what I am describing pertains to you. I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks, DMO

    Q: I have a good dentist, that cares much about the health and service of her patients. The only thing is that, it's their practice that before they can do anything on you (ex. fill cavities, root canal or anything) you have to take antibiotics an hour before the appointment. This is for prevention of any infections during, or after the procedure. I read the article about antibiotics, and know how harmful it is for your body. I am soon going need to have an implant procedure done. I want to know if there is an alternative to antibiotics or something I can take to be ready for the surgery in oppose to taking the antibiotics for prevention of infections?

    A:

    Most people opt for the antibiotics, and then after the dental work just consume carbon (activated charcoal). Antibiotics options would include Echinacea-Goldenseal extract, and Candida Buster formula which is 100% anti-biotical in nature. These products are all available in our store. Peace and Love!

    Q: My girlfriend is from Indonesia and received the anti biotic, Tetracycline, when she was about 3 years old. When her adult teeth came in, they were grey in color. I think she has only one cavity and she is 33, so her teeth seem to be strong, just an unattractive color. She has tried tooth whitening with no good results. It seems that they turned grey from the inside out. Is there anything natural that she can do to restore the white color that antibiotics robbed her teeth of?

    A:

    She has to reverse the damage of antibiotics by cleansing constantly to the duration contrasted with how long she took antibiotics. It's the only way since the problem originates from the inside out.

    Q: I have metal fillings in my mouth do I have to stay that way or can my teeth grow back. I heard that there are commercial mouthwashes that can grow teeth, but I want the natural way.

    A:

    The metal can be removed. However, it will take a very long time for the teeth to grow back or heal, but it can be done! A commercial mouthwash is unnatural and an unnatural thing cannot help the teeth grow back.
