Default Re: My teeth are remineralizing.

This is great info I actually cured my gum disease garggling with food grade hydrogen peroxide. I think we will switch to weleda's calendula toothpaste - we currently use weleda children's toothpaste . . . and I am going to get cal/mag back in on our supplement list

I have been wanting to give up cleanings but I have a small cavity I am keeping an eye on. . . . now, I can give them up with good conscience

Default Re: My teeth are remineralizing.

I'm so thrilled for you!! DS has cavities and we're using xylitol toothpaste (squiggle), we also give him xylitol mints throughout the day to keep the bacteria from being able to produce the acid that causes the decay. We also use something specifically remineralization called MI paste. I'm seeing a definite slowing in the process.

Default Re: My teeth are remineralizing.

I really like Dr. Ellie (you can google Dr. Ellie's blog) and find her.

I use her protocol and have had success with both my teeth and my children's teeth.

I'm so glad your teeth are healing rabbit! It feels good doesn't it!

Default Re: My teeth are remineralizing.

Ever since you mentioned the Weleda toothpaste a long time ago, I've been using it. It really works well! My dh's teeth are improving, also. We haven't done the xylitol, though.

And also swishing with hydrogen peroxide has totally helped my chronically-inflamed gums.

Default Re: My teeth are remineralizing.

I get most of mine from Walmart....listerine and fluoride and I buy my xylitol (made from the burch tree) from Dr. Ellie's site. This is also where you can get the xylitol mints and gum too.

I have bought MI paste from dentist.net

Default Re: My teeth are remineralizing.

Interesting. We've used xylitol some in the past, though I admit I've never been very aggressive with it. And I've never tried Weleda's toothpaste. I'm good about taking cal/mag when I'm pg, but otherwise... not so much. I've definitely got some tooth sensitivity and gum recession issues though, so I may have to give some of this a try.
