While we all wish we could avoid cavities, sometimes it’s too late. In that case, though, there are still things we can do to reverse cavities and heal tooth decay!
Check out these great tips!
Eat foods rich in nutrients:
Consuming minerals and vitamins can prevent tooth decay and it can even beat it. You have to consume green leafy veggies and healthy fats like nuts, seeds, avocado and coconut oil.
It has been used for many centuries and it is a type of oral detoxification. You should rinse the mouth with a tbs. of coconut oil for twenty minutes and spit out. Start doing it for three or five minutes and gradually increase to twenty minutes. This method can also treat gingivitis, headaches, etc.
Remove phytic acid:
The foods rich in phytic acid are grains, nuts, beans and seeds, but make sure that they are not GMO. This acid can prevent the body from absorbing the minerals from the foods. It leaches out of the body, bones and teeth at the same time. Avoid foods that have high amounts of this acid.
Avoid foods that are high in sugar in order to have healthy teeth as the bacteria in the mouth feed on sugar. The sugar decalcifies and demineralizes the structural content of the teeth.
Use mineralizing toothpaste:
The toothpastes that are fluoride-free can be really expensive and many of us cannot afford them. But you can make one at your home pretty easily. You will need ¼ tsp. of peppermint extract, ¼ tsp. of mint-flavored chloroplyll, one tbs. of filtered water, half a tsp. of coconut oil, ¼ tsp. of baking soda and three tbs. of food grade diatomaceous earth-clay.
