Dr. Gregor: Dental Health & Diet

#1 Postby beforewisdom » Sun Mar 17, 2013 10:00 am

Bottom line:
- eat, but take it easy on citrus fruit and juices
- rinse your mouth out with water after eating or drinking
- wait 30 min after drinking or eating to brush your teeth
- use a fluoride toothpaste

I just don't agree with the fluoride toothpaste part, but I realise I am probably in the minority.

I haven't used fluoride in my toothpaste for over 15yrs ~ I'm 36yrs old now and don't have a single filling. We get quite a bit through our diet and excess fluoride has been shown to lead to mottling of the teeth. I know dentists recommend it so I'm not really in a position to argue against them, but it's just my opinion MF.

Yes, there are a lot of mixed reviews/data on fluoride, its a good video though, people can take from it what they want. Thanks for sharing.

Not really here to argue or anything, but I strongly support fluoridation of drinking water. I also support fluoridation of toothpaste, but if you can get away without it, then more power to you! I have to use fluoridated toothpaste AND a fluoride rinse, otherwise my teeth fill themselves with holes.
