Going to the dentist can be quite an expensive trip. Obviously then it would save a lot of money if there was a way to avoid that by taking care of some problems at home, right?
Have you ever heard this lie... "You better take good care of your teeth because once you get cavities there's nothing you can do but get them filled. The enamel and teeth can't repair themselves so you've got one shot"?
Or what about the oft repeated line that sugar causes cavities?
What most people don’t realize is that’s only half the truth. Theoretically, it is possible to consume large amounts of that sweet tasting white stuff without suffering from cavities as a consequence.
Sugar causes cavities indirectly when cavity-causing bacteria (known as Streptococcus Mutans) utilizes it as an energy source, in order to multiply. Then they grow and grow and grow. What complicates matters is that these cavity-causing bacteria release acid as a byproduct. So when there’s a huge colony of bacteria releasing excess acid; this causes demineralization of your teeth.
Demineralization is the process which weakens enamel, because the bacteria cause a loss of essential molecules in your enamel’s structure. When this happens over an extended period of time, your teeth will start to suffer from decay as cavity-causing bacteria now starts colonizing in the affected area, releasing acid again and again. If nothing is done, the cavity can go into the 2nd layer of the tooth called the dentine. Then, after some time, it will penetrate through it and infect the pulp of the tooth. What happens? You will need the dreaded root canal treatment which isn’t just painful, it will also cost you thousands of dollars.
The scary part is that one product 99.9% of people (maybe more) use everyday actually prevents remineralization from taking place and therefore your teeth just get weaker and weaker until problems as discussed appear and your dentist gets a nice payday. It really pays to be a dentist when what you teach guarantees you future business.
The best way to counter it is through remineralization – the natural process by which the enamel strengthens and repairs itself. Those who visit the dentist frequently might have heard of remineralizing gel, which is often sold by dentists. To maintain healthy teeth and gums, the ultimate goal is to let your teeth remineralize more than to be demineralized. It’s sort of like math, you need a ‘net remineralization’ at the end of the day. However, even if you purchase expensive remineralization gel products and take steps to remineralize your teeth, your teeth can still suffer at the end of the day, if you don’t possess the right knowledge.
Forget about those videos you find on Youtube. Forget about the tips you will find online. They are inadequate and most of them are false, or worse yet, harmful to your oral health.
The “Dentist Be Damned!” program was put together to teach readers about how to properly remineralize their teeth (and reverse and heal any possible cavities), eliminate cavity-causing bacteria, and educate readers on many topics which many dentists will never let the public know. You can finally cut down unnecessary dental expenses and save thousands with this invaluable program. If you have a fear of the dentist, this program is your savior.
