From simple problems, like a baby teething, to a long list of woes, our mouth can be the site of health problems for all ages.
Cavities (caries), inflamed tongue (glossitis), inflamed mouth tissues (stomatitis) inflamed gums (gingivitis), deep pockets in gums (periodontitis), are among the noted issues that can occur.
Frequent cavities (caries) are costly and carry risk if they are filled with mercury-silver amalgam. The composite white filling is a healthier choice for fillings. Cavities and drilling to fill them damage tooth structure and make breakage more likely in the future. Calcium as part of overall nutrition (see Calcium, and Nutrition) is the foundation for healthy teeth.
Dental schools sometimes provide dental care at low cost.
Tooth enamel is the hardest surface in the body. Breaking down this very hard substance requires intense subdividing forces, likened to the piercing character of analytic thinking. Protecting children from adult information and adult decision-making keeps their thinking process in the non-analytic, childlike, pictorial, living thinking realm appropriate to their age. Some practitioners find keeping children truly in childhood is beneficial in this regard for healthy teeth as they grow up.Print This Post
The use of fermented cod liver oil plus butter oil rubbed on the surfaces of the teeth was noted to be protective against cavities by Weston Price DDS. See www.WestonAPrice.org. In addition, the omega 3 fatty acids in cod liver oil are anti-inflammatory, valuable for almost all mouth conditions discussed here. Green Pasture makes Blue Ice Royal, a combination of fermented cod liver oil and butter oil.
For adults, Green Pasture Blue Ice Royal one-half teaspoon orally daily, or two capsules orally daily, with food containing fat.
True Botanica Aesculin 50x for adults 3-5 pellets 3 times daily orally is valuable to decrease rate of cavity occurrence.
True Botanica Throat Defense for adults 1/8 teaspoon daily provides healthy bacteria that assist in reversing dry mouth, excessive cavities, and gum disease.
Stomatitis and gingivitis (inflamed mouth and gums) may come from the following:
- poor oral hygiene problem,
- an acute illness usually viral,
- nutritional deficiencies, or
- signify an inflammation problem throughout the gastrointestinal tract.The mouth is the uppermost part of the GI-tract, and mouth inflammation can be a sign of inflammatory bowel disease.
With this many possibilities, diagnosis is the foundation of sensible treatment. Lack of hygiene is corrected by improving mouthcare.
True Botanica Curcumin Plus capsules for adults one capsule opened and rubbed on irritated tissue three times daily for hygiene or viral related inflammations.
Uriel Purple Coneflower Spray for adults 2-3 sprays every 1-2 hours for mouth inflammations due to hygiene issues or viral inflammation.
Weleda Salt toothpaste and Ratanhia mouthwash for adults general mouth hygiene, and the mouthwash for adults used more frequently, swishing and spitting out several times per day.
Gum disease (periodontitis) has grown in importance from recognition of its relationship to chronic inflammation and heart disease. Over brushing can hurt both gums and tooth enamel.
Uriel Periodontium Quartz ampules for adults one ampule three times per week swish-and-swallow calms acutely inflamed bleeding gums.
Uriel Periodontium Hypophysis ampules for adults one ampule three times per week swish-and-swallow strengthens gums prone to inflammation and deep pockets.
Teething may be soothed by rubbing the gums with a clean finger, applying a drop of oil of clove to the swollen gum area, letting the baby chew on the frozen corner of a terry cloth wash cloth, or using low potency homeopathic remedies designed to relax spasm and pain, such as chamomile and belladonna.
Uriel Chamomilla Belladonna is dosed for adults 10 pellets four times per day orally, and practitioners often use one pellet per year of age for children. Ask your doctor.
Weleda Children’s tooth gel provides a healthy mouth environment for the child’s growing teeth.Print This Post
Dentists are the experts on teeth and gums. Biological dentists are particularly helpful in determining materials which will not react adversely for procedures such as root canals, implants, etc.
Please review www.WestonAPrice.org for information on sensible dentistry and the biological dentistry approach. Mouth inflammations often are shown to either doctors or dentists. Sometimes both are needed to determine accurate diagnosis and treatment.Print This Post
