Hello Nonnies, I read in one of the books that the non-secretors are more likely to have issues with their teeth. I've also noticed on the "you might be a nonnie if..." threads that it does seem to be one of the common traits. Are there any nonnies on the board who have never had a cavity?

I have always had cavities, but for the past 10 years not so bad. I have never had gum problems, but on occasison have mouth ulcers....a nonnie trait.

No cavities??  That would definitely NOT describe me.  

I do have a mouthful of beautiful crowns, though.

I think I've had a cavity in every tooth . (Plus 3 crowns and a bridge) I have noticed that since being on BTD, my mouth health is great.  Just regular maintenance is needed.  My gums are healthy and there has been no new decay.  In fact had my teeth professionally cleaned just this morning and my mouth got rave revews from both the hygenist and the dentist


OUCH!!   My dogma was just run over by my karma!

lots of cavities here in my past too.. I remember being aghast at needing 6-8 fillings in 2003, and opting for 1 removal too.

I have had good reports since btd from dentist tho, i say it must be the green tea -and not pigging out on sweets (as much!)

I never had cavities my whole life, but finally had two fillings put in just this past year.

But then again, I was diagnosed with allergies at an early age, and told never to drink milk.  I've also never had much of a sweet tooth.  I think that had something to do with the health of my teeth.

Interesting!

My husband and I are both nonnies (he's and A) and we both have perfect teeth - never had a filling in our lives.

He has no health issues, but I, like Ron, was diagnosed with allergies at age 7 and taken off milk products. I didn't start rebelling and eating chocolate until mid-teens, by which time my teeth were probably developed enough. Both of us had fluoride treatments in our early teens when it became fashionable in the UK.

Well, I had my first cavity when I was a teenager, and my second was soon after.  Grew up on a no sugar diet and drank mineral-rich well water, which our dentist said was probably the reason our teeth were so wonderful.  Just found out I have two new cavities between teeth.   From not flossing enough, they said.  So I don't have the typical nonnie mouth, but I may eventually if I don't keep up with the flossing.

I've never had a cavity or braces, but I have had a couple of fillings in "weak spots" -- personally I think the dentist was just behind on his yacht payment

Heidi - this is fascinating! Should have been a poll then we could have got some stats out of it! So far the O-nonnies' teeth are in the lead ...

Eleven of them here...from early teenage years and up.  Since BTD I have also had great reviews from dentist and hygenist.

My teeth were perfectly fine until my early thirties...then had to go to a different dentist....He came up with an excuse to put some sort of seal on 2 of Wisdom teeth {something about the enamel not covering} - To this day its the only 2 teeth I have had problems with.
Later on of course there were "problems" with the seal so they had to do fillings, the dentist cried "You want what? Serramyck?" - Ultimately they got their wish. I no longer have those 2 wisdom teeth. Just have to keep their grubby hands off the remaining 2. "It shure is easy to remove them! You don't want to keep them do you?"
Their latest excuse since I told them once that I am mostly vegetarian, - Apparently I have excessive 'enamel wear'. Hmm anymore than anyone else whom uses toothpaste with Carbonates & chalk {ie: Abrasives} I wonder?...

Thank you for your replies. It's good to know that not all nonnies have issues with their teeth.  

I'm sure secretors have their share of tooth decay and gum disease too, it can't be just nonnies keeping the denitists in business.

Intersting question!  I found out a few weeks ago that I'm a nonnie and I have very similar traits as my father.  Both of my parents are type A but my mom was betting that since I'm a nonnie, that my dad would be one too (I have the same bad teeth and skin as him).  Turns out she was right!  She's a secretor and he's a nonnie...too funny!

Hi fellow Nonies,

Having a sweet tooth since forever and drinking 3 bottles of coke a day when I was around 12 or 13 years, well, the dentist was a too familiar face to me. Crowns, one root canal, inlays and onlays.

Now my children (both Os, one nonnie, the other unknown) had no cavaties until after their braces were taken off in their teens and then, although not as severe as their Mom, they've had trouble. Bad orthodontist! Braces left on tooooo long, etc.

My O husband also has trouble with his teeth and he doesn't have a sweet tooth just a "fat" tooth (likes that grease!)

We all have healthy gums, however.

Cordially,
Margaret

I didn't have a cavity until I was 32 (though my first set of teeth were full of them)

My dad didn't have a cavity until he was in his 50s, so must be some good gene there.

I do have to take extra care of my gums though, I'm sure that's pretty normal.

Well, if you're talking about gums now, that's a different story.  I've frequently had raw, bleeding gums when I brush my teeth.

Yeah, my gums take a lot of care otherwise they bleed.  I have slightly recessed gums in between some teeth.  No major cavities, but I have always spent a lot of time brushing each day.  Nowadays I spend a lot of time flossing too to make sure my gums stay healthy.

Perfect teeth?....Absolutely not!

From quite an early age many cavities....mouth ulcers from quite young as well....braces only exacerbated these problems.  

But my biggest problem at the moment is extreme recession of the gums (with what my dentist calls 'root rot').  Apparently I have the mouth of an elderly person!  Oh yes and thinning of the teeth (a bit see-through).    H E L P

folic acid added to a 1/4 glass of water for rinsing is very helpful, I ve heard.

found a few more notes

Quoted Text
Co Enzyme Q10: The demand for the nutrient
skyrockets when gum tissue is under stress.
50-100 mg daily taken with a fatty meal for
3-4 months helps enhance tissue recovery
avocado: Help block the degradation of
preelastic fibres and mature elastic fibres by and
enzyme called human leukocyte elastase (HLE). Avocado and
soybean have fractions called 'unsaponifiables
' which may be beneficial in patients with
gingival inflammation and parodontitis, since
HLE plays a major role in these disease states.

Selenium: This powerful antioxidant has been
proven to block free radical damage to gum
tissue.
Folic acid: Especially as a mouth rinse, has
been long know to help prevet gum recession in
pregnant or otherwise health individuals
dissolving 2 400mcg tablets of folic acid into
a shot glass of warm water, and swishing it
around.
