Bad Dentistry - Dentists Took Advantage of Me by Trying to Fill Extra Cavities
What follows below is a real case study submitted by a reader of this website. It describes how their health was harmed by bad dentistry.
My name is Rebecca from Newark, DE. I am 40 yrs, 5 foot 3 tall and now 120 lbs but was about 100 lbs at the time of the dentist visit in February 2010.
After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, I went on a low-fat raw food vegan diet---which is basically a lot of fruits and veggie diet and was successful to experience significant health improvements. But then, in January 2010, 1 year and 3 months into the fruits and veggie diet, I started to have such an agonizing tooth pain on two molars---Oil pulling gave me a temporary relief but the throbbing toothaches were getting worse and worse to rob me of normal eating and sleep.
At the same time, I was researching on mercury effects on our body and decided to take them out. By recommendation, I found this expert dentist in amalgam removal in Pennsylvania. Though she was 3 hours away from where I lived and takes no insurance, I was happy to find her and went in for the assessment visit. After all, people from all over the US fly to her office to get the job done.
During the first visit, full mouth x-rays were taken and the dentist went over my blood work and hair analysis results. For nutrition, she recommended some supplements along with an addition of half stick of butter and hard boiled eggs to my diet, which I brushed off since I was a hard-core fruits and veggie person. But in my hindsight, this was an excellent suggestion. She assessed that I had not just one but FIVE new cavities which was a shock to me since I had none when I had my regular dental check-up six months earlier. Since she practices a “whole” dentistry, she insisted that I need to have all those five cavities treated when I come in for amalgam removal on my next visit. It would be all or nothing. This first visit was about two hours long and cost me $450.
I knew something had to be done for my cavities---but I felt very uneasy to treat all those five at the same time, so I researched some more. That’s when I found out about Ramiel’s book on curing cavities naturally---I devoured his book and read some more of the books he referenced---such as Dr. Price’s and Ajounus Vonderplanit’s books. With such information, my diet went from low-fat raw vegan to high fat from raw milk/butter/raw cheese/raw eggs diet in March. I started to experience a welcome relief from the throbbing toothaches around the same time. To my delight, in my subsequent visits to other dentists in March and May, no cavities were detected.
In April, as Ramiel warned, I did go through an intense detox from raw eggs and had to skip work for several weeks. But after that, my health is improving and the cavities are mostly arrested. I am very thankful to Ramiel for his priceless info.
Lastly I also want to point out that when I visited the other dentists, I learned that they are and have been using digital x-rays for sometime now and were all surprised that my full mouth x-ray at the expert dentist in Pennsylvania was not digital. I had become weary of all chemicals and radiation in the past few years and didn’t want the x-rays done but went through it anyway only because it was “necessary.” If only I had known about the digital x-rays---I would have chosen that method at all costs for I hear that the difference in radiation between the digital and the old way is quite significant.
I filled my story with lots of personal dietary info and experiences as well as my dental journey but I hope this will help people avoid making similar mistakes.
Why Bad Dentistry?
I decided to create an area on my website to focus on bad dentistry. Many people have kept quiet about the mistreatment of their teeth by dentists. I do not encourage people to avoid dentists, but in order to get people to go to the dentist, the dentist must provide excellent care. Unfortunately most do not. This list can help you find a good dentist.
Modern dentistry, in general, damages our teeth. It drills away too much healthy tooth structure. It places toxic materials in our mouths, and recommends treatments that don't last over the long term. Moving beyond bad dentistry means using the book, Cure Tooth Decay, to help you remineralize your cavities naturally.
You can submit a story about how dentistry has negatively harmed your life by sending an e-mail to: email@example.com
Make sure to include the name you want posted on your testimonial, a little bit about yourself, and how you were harmed by bad dentistry. You do not need to remain silent about the harm done to your mouth. Because I do not want to be in the middle of any type of dispute I will not post the name of the bad dentist.
