Low stomach acid, imbalanced bacterial populations, and poor diet and lifestyle likely contribute to an unhealthy mouth and consequently an unhealthy body.
Unfortunately, brushing your teeth, using mouthwash, and getting regular teeth cleanings from a conventional dentist are not preventative practices that successfully reduce your risk of mouth disease.
But why not?
For example, mercury amalgams constantly
release mercury particles and burden the body with excess toxic
metal. And root canals leave decaying bone and tissue in the mouth
on which pathogenic bacteria thrive.
Unfortunately, the mouth has a great ability to absorb these toxins into the bloodstream, even if they are not swallowed.
To "clean" teeth with a chemical paste
that is too toxic to swallow does not make sense when considering
the mouth as the portal into the body that contains a live ecosystem
of beneficial bacteria that protect the body from harm.
If you have mercury/silver amalgams or root canals, visit a knowledgeable and experienced biological or holistic dentist to safely remove and clean the teeth.
Take high doses of buffered vitamin C
powder before and after your dental check ups to minimize damage
from the toxins that are stirred up and released during the
Using non-toxic oral care products will
actively reduce your risk of dental disease while also supporting
your overall health as well.
