So I’ve been experimenting with something for a few months now, and I’ve been going to share it, but I didn’t know if it was working. I am not proud of my teeth. I work hard at maintaining them, but they are not great. No matter what I did, it wasn’t enough and I had cavities, my teeth were sensitive all the time(tepid was my main temperature for all things) and a couple of teeth pulled. I begged my dentist for dentures. I was tired of the constant pain. I was desperate for answers or relief. I was tired of living on tylenol and advil. But I wasn’t the only one in my family with teeth problems. My husband has severe periodontal disease. And Miss A. has some cavity issues.
So I started researching homemade toothpaste and re-mineralizing your teeth. And I was dumbfounded by all the special things I would need to find. I got them ordered and I also ordered the HealThy Mouth blend from OraWellness, after reading good things about adding it to oral care for people with periodontal disease. It seemed like it was going to be amazing. I was so excited to try it out.
Everything finally made it’s way here, and I made a toothpaste based on this recipe from Wellness Mama that I had been stalking for months. I didn’t add the DE. We use the toothpaste, and I add the HealThy Mouth Blend to it along with peppermint oil. The taste is clean and not overwhelming. My mouth feels clean all day long no matter what I’ve eaten. I rinse once a week with a calcium powder, xylitol, peroxide, and the HealThy Mouth Blend, and I whiten my teeth with activated charcoal once every week or two. If my mouth starts to feel off, I will put a couple of drops into some water and swish & spit for a refresher.
All of that information to tell you this: I have been having tooth pain again and I knew I had a couple cavities that needed filled and thought that was the problem. If you know me, then you know that I am scared to death of the dentist. My dentist now is actually great, but my childhood dentist was not. So I put off going until the pain is unbearable and I can not handle living any longer. So off Aly and I went to the dentist to see about our pain. They filled 3 small cavities for Aly, and none in mine… I have a future appointment to have mine filled because I apparently need a night guard for teeth grinding and clenching. So yeah….
The point here was to say: Apparently my toothpaste is working because my cavities were smaller and not nearly as deep, and he couldn’t find a reason for the pain other than the clenching! So yay!!! And woohoo!
I can’t wait to make Mr. K an appointment so that I can see what it has been happening in his mouth since we started this experiment!
