I have receding gums and a big crack next to a broken tooth, what should I do?
Question: Hi, I'm in my mid 40s, blind, have 5 mercury fillings, one white one, too;
don't have the money to get the mercury ones redone, as am unemployed. Don't
feel well most days but did not notice anything until many years after
fillings were put in. Most were when I was a child, but the last two went
in when I was about 24. I am noticing on a back tooth on the left hand
side, right before a partially out wisdom tooth that the inner face of the
tooth has a sort of jagged edge where the root is showing. The gum has
receded allot on that side. No other tooth is like that. My question is
in two parts, should I have the partially out wisdom tooth pulled, and
should I have the inner face of the tooth next to it where the gum has receded filled with white material. It's annoying to have that jagged
Answer: Clearly this tooth is not healthy. And it would seem like that gum recession near the tooth is a sign that this area of your mouth is irritated with toxic material. It should be looked at by a good holistic oriented dentist. I do not advise people exactly what they should do on their teeth because how you take care of your tooth is your choice and responsibility. The question then is, what is the best thing you can do for your health. I would recommend you make sure you clean up your diet as described in the book, Cure Tooth Decay, and get a professional opinion on this tooth. In general my preference is to do the least amount of treatment as possible. But before you make your decision on what you can do for your tooth, you need to be educated, and definitely do your best to make sure you eat a healthy diet. You can also make sure you have excellent mouth hygeine with the gum cleaning technique.
I had several very painful cavities postpartum (after having twins) that kept me up all night in pain and made it so I could barely eat... After following the advice in this book accruately my tooth pain subsided within 24 hours and no longer hurt at all, my teeth also look nicer and my gums no longer bleed and are a nice pink color. -J.

"The practical advice in this book really seems to be reversing my tooth decay!!! Hallelujah brother!!! The dentist wanted me to have two major root canals immediately and two other teeth filled. When I asked him if there was anything I could do with nutrition or supplements to get mu teeth to heal, he said "maybe you could slow the decay down a little bit" but that essentially the answer was no.
That dental visit was three mobnths ago and my teeth have stopped aching all together, are way less temperature sensitive, and feel generally stronger.
Most of us have been totally disempowered regarding the health of our teeth. This information has changed that for me. I bought the book for $28 anyway though. What a bargain, The dental work was going to cost well over $4000.00 no wonder dentists don't seem open to this stuff working! Talk about a biased perspective!!!
Think I'm excited, you will be too if you use this info to take tooth health into your own hands!"

"Not only is Cure Tooth Decay a practical guide to teach parents how to raise healthy children (with healthy teeth), it is also a helpfull tool for adults who have suffered with poor dental health and/or chronic disease. I would also highly recommend this book to people who are looking for things they can do to protect their bones, and their overall health, as they age. In other words, this book is a must read for everyone interested in improving their health." Pam Killeen New York Times nestselling Author
"Ramiel, You (along with Weston Price) saved my teeth. Was supposed to get a root canal (which I had no money to pay for). Tooth was in pain. After three weeks on the diet I can feel a big difference, tooth doesn't hurt now and feels like it's healing. Thanks so much. Unbelievable!" - Leroy, Utah
My cavity has gotten smaller! Once you are set free from being a slave to modern foods of commerce author continues to explain how the ancient people ate. They were healthy, strong and good looking. They had no cavities. They had no illness until familiar western culture came to visit them. If you are reading this review I am sure you understnad something is not right in the world. That we are born to live under a certain hypnosis. That we are taught to give away our responsibility to "people with authority", and those people cannot even take care of themselves. I recommend this book if you want the way out."Ranko, Croatia
