Instead of the PM, I thought I'd share this info here as others may be interested too.  

Teeth can heal naturally as do bones, tissue cuts, etc.  The body is constantly attempting to "heal" itself.  How much healing from a tooth you can expect is determined by the extent of the existing damage and what you're willing to do to allow it to heal.

Oil-pulling would be my first plan of action.  The mouth is a breeding ground for 500 different types of bacteria.  Daily oil-pulling helps the body to rid itself of toxic waste without disturbing beneficial microflora.  

Secondly, get rid of all glycerin toothpaste and mouthwash products.  You really need to give the tooth a chance to remineralize and glycerin prevents them from absorbing necessary minerals for healing. I cannot stress this enough.  

Doing the first step but refusing to give up your delicious foamy toothpaste will likely return numerous other health benefits but I seriously doubt you'll get to the point of healing any tooth decay or cavities.  The second part of the equation is what really allows the teeth to heal.

Also, flossing daily in addition to brushing your teeth twice a day will prevent the build up of destructive bacteria.  Remember the mouth is a gateway for the blood stream.  There is a strong correlation between gum disease and coronary heart disease issues heart attacks and strokes.

Apparently there's a book titled "healing tooth decay" that's available for purchase, or your local library may have a copy. I've never read it.  I also found this link online which outlines one protocol for healing teeth: http://www.yourreturn.org/Articles/ec_new.htm

From your link Ruthie:

    For teeth to remineralize, the surface of the tooth needs to be clean. Any toothpaste which is pasty contains glycerin. The glycerin takes about 27 washes with water to remove from the tooth’s surface. There are many alternative products such as tooth liquids, tooth powders, sea salt and baking soda, and herbs to clean and treat teeth.

---
I can't overemphasize the importance of eliminating glycerin based products for your mouth.

be careful on letting lemon juice sit on you teeth it can eat your enamel. It's not really good to suck on a lemon through you teeth. Like many kids like to do.

I did that ONCE when I was a teen and I had what felt like a nerve dangling out the bottom of an upper tooth. Nevermore!

There is a product that we have been using called Oram Plus. It is expensive, but lasts quite a while and kills the bacteria in the mouth. It is an oil and leaks down between the gums and teeth. At one time my hubby's teeth were loose and his gums were bleeding, and he started to use the Oram Plus- within two to three days those symptoms were gone.

It does have various oils, peppermint and others, so there might be compliance issues.

Thank you all for the information on tooth health and glycerin as it relates to water.  All I was interested in before, was how hot my water could be before it destroyed the vitamin C in my lime juice! I gotta have my lime water first thing in the morning like other people who aren't conversation worthy until they've had their coffee. I throw a knife, limes, and a thermal cup in my suitcase when I travel and use hot water from the coffee makers to get my fix when I'm traveling. I've been drinking it for years

Turns out that the bowlful of papaya and pineapple I eat 15 minutes afterwards probably has a whole lot more C than I could get from diluted lime juice.  I am allergic to lemons, but limes are great...only problem is that the price is going up. Too many freezing temperatures in citrus growing regions last winter, I think.

Some people add a pinch of salt.  Does anyone know what the salt is for?

It's to cut the sugar as well as somewhat balance the acidity. Be sure to brush your teeth after drinking your lemon tea for lemon can slowly erode your teeth.

actually, I since learnt that rather than brushing your teeth immediately after drinking lemon water, rinse your mouth throughly and wait a few minutes before brushing or eating again.  The enamel in the teeth is most vulnerable to brushing and acid from foods after drinking lemon water ...  That is my strategy now anyway ...

I have heard you should wait an hour

I have started the oil pulling so am excited to hopefully find clearer sinuses and whiter teeth. Does anyone know a brand of "toothpaste" or tooth cleaner without glycerine?

Cajun, I've looked high and low and have yet to find a toothpaste without glycerine.  I just use a powder which contains, sea salt, baking soda, prickly ash bark and peppermint powder.

If you do find a paste without glycerin, please update.  

Glad to hear you're giving the pulling a chance.  Just be gentle and don't overdo it.  I've not had any problems, only benefits.

Also, cajun - I use warm salt water to rinse with after oil-pulling.  I love the squeaky clean feeling.  I alternate between drinking either room temp lemon or ginger water, also, which helps with sinus issues and digestive upsets.

Periopaste does not contain Glycerin, but may contain other things that you may want to avoid.

Actually, according to this ingredients list, it sadly does:

PerioPaste™
Ingredients: Phytoplenolin® (Centipeda Cunninghamii Extract), Bio-Chelated® Extracts of Echniacea Purpurea Tops (Echinacea Purpurea), Calendula Flower (Calendula Officinalis), Olive Leaf (Olea Europaea), Black Walnut Green Hulls (Juglans Nigra), Gotu Kola Herb (Centella Asiatica), Chamomile Flower (Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria)), Green Tea Leaf (Camellia Sinensis), Prickly Ash Bark (Zanthoxylum Americanum) and Grapefruit Seed (Citrus Grandis), Essential Oils of Peppermint (Mentha Piperita), Oregano (Origanum Vulgare), Clove (Eugenia Caryophyllus), Thyme (Thymus Vulgaris), Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia), Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) and Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus Globulus), Bio-SaponinTM (Saponins), Folic Acid, Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone), Aloe Vera PhytogelTM (Aloe Barbadensis), Sodium Bicarbonate, Colloidal Silica, Lysine, Xylitol, Xantham Gum and Chlorophyll.

Base Ingredients: Calcium Carbonate, Vegetable Glycerin, U.S.P. Purified Water.
from: http://www.greenplanetcompany.net/periopaste.html

I was initially very excited about this discovery when I read the minimal ingredients they (Bio-Pro) list at their website until I investigated further.  Glycerin is always used as a base ingredient or so I've discovered thus far.

I make my own. One part baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), 1 part kosher salt,  and a few drops spearmint oil. I put these into an empty baby food jar and shake it up really well before using the first time. Then I just dip my damp toothbrush into it and brush.

No, I don't.  A pitcher of fresh lemonade is very refreshing on a summer day though.

I do lemon juice each morning hot while waiting for coffee to brew. This does seem to cut congestion when I wake up.

Why does the water have to be hot? I drink lemon in water regularly. Is a higher temp more beneficial?
