With Dental and Oral disease these are the big three issues that come into play!
First is a microbe problem in your mouth,
Second is a nutritional problem.
Third may be a fluoride issueÖAnd I do think you can overcome it!
But it will take some work on your part.
You must start eating lots more fresh veggies, like every day, veggie salads!You need to address all three and here is the plan. Aside from brushing and flossing daily, which is probably the only correct thing your dentist has taught you, this is what I would do.
1. Stop drinking anything with fluoride in it. Purchase bottled or purified water if you must. Too much fluoride makes your teeth weak, crumble and become susceptible to cavities. It is no longer recommended by the Academny for Pediatric Medicine.
2. Get Xylitolwhite or Spry tooth paste. Donít ever use the other stuff again. These toothpastes will help to eliminate bacteria. You can find these toothpastes at Iherb. on the net, an on line supplement shop that I purchase most of my supplements from. Put BAR967 in the coupon code to save $5 on your first purchase. If you donít like Xyliwhite then try Spry next time. Spry is my favorite.
3. For a while you will have to get into the offensive attack mode. Get some Nutribiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract and put one drop on your toothpaste and brush. If you can tolerate it increase to two drops when you can. If your gums can handle it rub it directly on the gums and put some on your dental floss. Now be careful because if your gums are really bad it will burn. You want to work up to it.

4. Get some CoQ10 100mg and take one cap two times a day. This is the type I recommend because it is an an oil base which makes it assimilate better. This will nourish your gums from the inside out and you can also poke a hole in the cap and apply it directly to your gums. If your gums are very weak you can double the dosage for a couple of months.

5. Vegital Silica may be helpful to strenghten bones and teeth. I wonder how your bones are? Take 3 caps two times a day for about 3 months, then 2 caps as maintenance found at Iherb. - Product Details - Flora, Vegetal Silica, 180 Capsules
6. Take trace minerals, liquid is good, from a Utah mine or this, or any that has at least 72 trace minerals.

7. Take a low dose calcium/magnesium supplement. about 300mg on the calcium. One tablet of these daily will be Ok.

8. Vitamin D, Purchase 5,000 IU caps and take 10,000 IU daily for 2 weeks, then 5,000 IU daily. This is one of the best products here:
9. Eliminate all sugar from your diet, at least until you are healed up. Try Xylitol or stevia for your sweetening needs at iHerb - Product Details - Now Foods, Stevia Liquid Extract, 2 fl oz (60 ml)
If you look around you will find some cookbooks for this stuff, like on Amazon. I often use them together cause if you use tooo much stevia it has an aftertaste, but it is cheaper than xylitol, which tastes the best. Together I can get a nice compromise.
10. Make sure your toothbrush is clean. You do not need to purchase a new brush frequently if you leave your brush in hydrogen peroxide. Your brush will be very clean for each use. Some people use a little clorox. A quarter teaspoon in a glass of water is more than enough to sterilize your brush. Just give it a quick rinse before using.
11. Learn about MMS at You can activte some mms, about 5 drops and add 3 or 4 ounces of water and use it to brush your teeth with. This will really cut down on the bacterial load. You can do it for up to a week every few weeks but do not do it every day forever as it is reported to cause tooth sensitivity. Many individuals have reported excellent results with MMS for reducing or eliminating bacterial loads in their mouths. Initially use daily for about 2 weeks then reduce to twice a week. Do no use daily indefinately.
12. Get rid of the mercury filling that are toxic and harbor bacteria. Find a dentist that can treat with ozone and conserve teeth by preventing root canals
I hope you find this helpful. I have managed to eliminate all my gum issues and have helped quite a few others do the same and I havenít had a cavity in more years than I can remember!
