I only can recommend it to all nonnies... go and see your dentist regulary...
now I'm done... and will be soon operated.....as once mentioned .....
but then implants will follow.... I hope they will fit this nonnie

I've to conquer the inflammations... I do take 3x400mg's of boswellia serr. 4-6x daily, have added curcuma 3000 mg's daily since today... next catsclaw  but it seems nothing really works correctly... can't take any antibiotics coz I really can't stand those meds..... but I'm more then happy that this lady dentist is the very first who's listening to me and takes me for  serious... not as all the other docs....... I gave her a copy of the *explorer - issue* and she was more than happy to get the info... wow... first step to heal up my most concerning problem.... ....

any ideas in phytos to go against sever gum inflammation...

thanx in advance

Great advice for secretors as well.  I remember seeing a poster at my dentists office when I was growing up.  It read:  Ignore your teeth.  They'll go away.

It's good advice for anybody, really. Seeing  a dentist regularly just makes sense. If your teeth are healthy, you'll get a thorough cleaning (which can't hurt anything) and they'll send you on your merry way. If there's any decay or gum disease, it will be found quickly, before it escalates. I went a few years without a dental checkup just because life got in the way, and I was very fortunate that my teeth stayed healthy in the meantime (minus a huge buildup of tartar.)

What type of specific teeth issues are common amongst nonnies?  I haven't had too many problems, although I do have a front tooth that I've had to get a root canal for because it died and the tooth discolored.  I have always gotten great checkups but I do notice that tartar does build up very quickly on the inside of my bottom teeth.  What should I be on the lookout for?  Don't want to take any chances!!!

Nonnies are more susceptible to tooth decay than secretors, and untreated tooth decay can lead to more serious dental problems (tooth infections, the need for root canal, the possibility of a tooth being so badly messed up it needs to be pulled, etc.) I'm not certain about gum health and nonniness though. Weak gums also lead to tooth loss because the gum loses the ability to "hold onto" teeth when it's seriously diseased. I'm pretty sure it was gum disease, and not tooth decay, that led to my dad needing dentures on the bottom.

Both tooth decay and early gum disease can be diagnosed and treated by a dentist.

I know that nonnies are more susceptible to tooth problems (among other things) than secretors, but I'm not sure if that's still true for people following the proper diet. Are nonnies following the nonnie diet having more dental problems than secretors following the secretor diet?

Unfortunately, it is easy to say that everyone needs to see a dentist, but the facts are that not everyone can afford to. I have no health insurance of any kind and cannot afford to see a dentist, even though I know I should as I have had problems with my teeth since I was a small child. I have barely enough to pay my rent in low-income housing and no money for a dentist.

I know how expensive it can get.  Try maintaining them as best you can.  Check with the State to see if there are any programs available to help you out.

  Lola what do you mean by that? Please tell me more.

Heck if he (Dr D) wrote it ....... then I will take it....... I will buy stock in the company that sells it.

Dr D I ask you ? ! seriously could it be???  


(There was a story about Frank-in-cense and Mirrh..)  maybe the way to beat internal inflammation (I AM serious) will be to use our Franken/Dollar senses and Myrrh to remain healthy.

I often wondered  why they brought Franken-cense and Mirrh>> was it for good health???  would that not be on interesting clue for the why and how come the wise men walked through desert to bring such gifts?????..



From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mirrh... is the dried oleo gum resin of a number of Commiphora species of trees. Like frankincense, it is produced by the tree as a reaction to a purposeful wound through the bark and into the sapwood. The trees are bled in this way on a regular basis. The princial species is Commiphora myrrha, which is native to Yemen, Somalia, and the eastern parts of Ethiopia. Another primary species is C. momol. The related Commiphora gileadensis, native to Israel/Palestine and Jordan, is the biblically referenced 'balm of gilead'. Several other species yield bdellium, and Indian myrrh.

Its name entered the English from the Greek myth of Myrrha; in the Greek language, the related word μύρον became a general term for perfume. However, the term ultimately derives from the Aramaic word ܡܪܝܪܐ (murr), meaning "bitter".

Since ancient times, myrrh has been valued for its fragrance, it's medicinal qualities as a wound dressing and an aromatic stomatic and for the ancient Egyptians as the principal ingredient used in the embalming of mummies. So valuable has it been at times in ancient history that it has been equal in weight value to gold. During times of scarcity its' value rose even higher than that. It has been used throughout history as a perfume, incense and medicine.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frankincense ...from YemenFrankincense, also called olibanum (Arabic: لبٌان, lubbān), is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia, particularly Boswellia sacra (syn. B. carteri, B. thurifera), B. frereana, and B. bhaw-dajiana (Burseraceae). It is used in incense and perfumes.

There are four main species of Boswellia which produce true frankincense and each type of resin is available in various grades. The grades depend on the time of harvesting, and the resin is hand-sorted for quality.

My husband's teeth were treated with tetricycline (sp?) as a kid and turned his teeth gray and discolored. He is an O-. I wonder if any others had this same reaction?

I have bad teeth but I attribute it to my many years as a Pepsi drinker.  My tooth decay has greatly diminished on this diet.  My recent dental work was removing all the mercury fillings.  I have a flip tooth in the front from cracking my tooth.  My dentist has a natural implant but it is way too expensive for me.  Even her cleaning is 3 times what my insurance covers.  That’s why I cut down the # of times I go.  If I decide to switch to a regular dentist, I’m afraid of what the material used in implants might do.  My son doesn’t have insurance.  He goes to a local dentist who lets him pay a little bit at a time.  I think the guy gives him a break on the prices too.  I worry about what materials he’s getting in his mouth, but he’s an adult and can do what he pleases.  

Ignoring dental problems should not be an option.  A friend of mine recently was seriously ill from ignoring his teeth.  The tooth abscessed and the poison spread through his body.  He landed up in the hospital.

You can put "anti-biotic" and "Anti- inflammation" essential oils on floss and really get them delivered to the problem area. I switch around using different combos of Neem, Oregano, Clove, Lavender, and Fennel....at my last dental check-up the problem pocket had gotten one number better. Salt and Baking Soda rinses help keep the mouth alkaline and re-mineralize the enamel.

My teeth weren't treated with anything, but gradually turned more gray as I became more toxic before finding BTD...  Since finding the diet, my teeth have become more white as I detox and heal...
