Bad Teeth? The Surprising True Cause – by Frederic Patenaude

Great article by Frederic and at the bottom there are some special offers on his products to my readers.

Bad Teeth? The Surprising True Cause – by Frederic Patenaude

Ever since our childhood, we’ve heard the same basic advice about dental health, which can be summarized as follows:

“Brush after meals, use floss, avoid sweets and see the dentist every six months.”

It turns out that this advice is in large part useless and does not truly work.

How do I know this?

Apart from the fact that dentist offices are filled with people who have tried to follow this advice to the best of their ability, and yet find themselves again and again in the dentist chair, fixing more problems, I’ve had my own personal journey that led me to question this precept.

In 2001, I got extremely bad news from my dentist. After living exclusively on a raw food diet and had been doing so for almost three years, I got some sobering news from my dentist: I had developed 19 cavities.

At the time, fixing all of those teeth cost more than I could afford, and was also painful and traumatizing.

After that experience, I kept on eating a raw food diet, but I cleaned it up. I paid real attention to my dental hygiene. I flossed every day and brushed after every meal. I had all of my teeth fixed.

I thought… “Things will be much better on my next dentist’s appointment.”

One day, less than two years later, I was eating a grape and while chewing around the seed, one of my filings broke.

So I went to the dentist again, this time, to a holistic dentist in Montreal who practiced mercury-free dentistry. I thought that maybe I would have a cavity or two, but not more than that.

When the dentist examined my mouth, I heard him mention all of these tooth names to his assistant, and it didn’t sound very good. I knew I was in trouble again. Finally, I got the news that again, I had around 20 cavities!

I was absolutely devastated.

I thought I had done everything right. I had been brushing my teeth religiously. I had eliminated most of the junk raw food I was eating before.

But I had been traumatized by this experience. Again, I had to go through the pain and humiliation of getting my teeth fixed.

I decided to go on a personal quest, to find out what I could to to stop this, and never get another cavity or dental problem again.

What I Discovered In My Research

First, I interviewed about half a dozen dentists, who seemed incapable of giving me a single piece of advice I hadn’t already heard before.

– Don’t eat sweets
– Brush after every meal
– Use a fluoride toothpaste (some avoided this and told me the opposite)
– Eat a small piece of cheese after every meal, to neutralize the acidity
– Etc, etc.

I was trying my best to apply the so-called principles of dental hygiene, but things were not progressing in the right direction.

And I was worried.

Because dental disease may start with cavities, but it eventually progresses to worst stages. Gums are affected, pockets form, inflammation starts, and teeth are eventually at risk of falling off.

I did NOT want any of that to happen to me.

One day, everything changed.

I came across a program by a certain Dr. Nara on how to prevent dental problems for life. Dr. Nara was a controversial dentist who ran into some trouble with the dentist associations by writing about the true cause of dental disease, and also teaching people how to become dentally self-sufficient.

I tried Dr. Nara’s methods, and surprisingly, they worked! In fact, my dentist was totally shocked by the results.

I had some cavities that were starting to form, and they had stopped in their track and the teeth had re-enamilized. My dentist said that this was something that was possible theoretically but that he had never seen it before on a patient.

He told me: “You must have changed something. You don’t have any cavities. Your teeth are doing great!”

That was about 10 years ago, and since then, I have carefully applied Dr. Nara’s advice while continuing to research the topic. I now believe that the entire field of dentistry has misled the public for years by never truly explaining the true cause of dental problems and how to not only prevent them, but also reverse them.

I was so taken by this research that I wanted to share it with the world. So years ago, I worked with the publishers of Dr. Nara’s books to acquire the publishing rights, so I could spread this controversial knowledge to more people.

The Surprising Cause Behind Bad Teeth

Let me summarize it: We’re dealing with a transmittable disease. It is essentially a war against bacteria. You win or you lose the war. It’s that simple.

The enemy, the acid-producing bacteria that cause dental decay, organize into colonies. Once they get entrenched, it’s very hard to get them out into a normal, free flowing state where they can’t cause much damage.

Standard dental hygiene advice is not enough to bring the bacteria count to a lower level.

Instead, you have to take more aggressive (but careful) action, by implementing a daily “super-hygiene” routine.

With this super-hygiene routine, I discovered that I could control approximately 90% of my dental health, with the other 10% being influenced by diet. So diet does matter, but it is not the primary CAUSE of dental problems.

What dentists don’t talk about are important things such as:

– Controling acidity in the mouth
– Using xylitol products to reduce the bacterial count
– Why certain mouth rinses are important and how to use them
– Exactly how to brush your teeth for maximum results

Why Raw Foodists Have Bad Teeth

It seems that dental health is the Achilles’ heel of the raw food diet. A Germany study, published in 1999, even proved that raw foodists do experience more dental erosion than the general population.

Why is that?

For the same reason why everyone has problems with their teeth. The only difference is that the raw food diet includes more frequent fuel to the fire.

The fire is the bacterial count.

The fuel is the foods we eat, especially single sugars that are common in raw food diet.

Once you understand this simple concept, you’ll be able to eradicate decay for life. You have to extinguish the fire! Just controlling the fuel is not enough.

What happens is that when people move into the raw-food diet, they are basically a time-bomb as far as their dental health is concerned. Their bacteria count is a little toohigh, but not high enough to cause major problems.

Suddenly, they dump a bunch of sugar into their mouths. This sugar creates a giant feast for the bacteria who feed on them.

So in that sense, the introduction of a higher quantity of natural sugar is the determining factor. This sugar can be in various forms. There is no difference between white sugar and banana sugar when it comes to increasing the bacteria count in the mouth!

If your oral environment is really clean… it doesn’t really matter if you eat dates all day. If the bacteria count is low, you can do that without problems.

So although the *precipitating* factor that creates problem for raw-foodists is the introduction of more sugar, the *real* problem are the underlying issues, so the bacteria count! Like I said, 90% of the problems can be solved by dental hygiene alone, and 10% is diet-specific.

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just controlling your diet does not address the root of the problem.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

“10 Essential Tips for Perfect Teeth” – by Frederic Patenaude

Check out the deals on health products below this article, especially for my readers.

“10 Essential Tips for Perfect Teeth” – by Frederic Patenaude

For the past few years I’ve been warning raw foodists to take care of their teeth, because the raw food diet is known to cause more dental problems if proper precautions are not taken.

Many raw food experts deny that fact and yet their followers continue to experience dental disasters.

My Dental Advice Summarized

Here’s a summary of my dental advice for anyone eating a lot of fruits and vegetables.

1) Realize that the raw food diet is more cariogenic.

“Cariogenic” is a term used by dentists that means “more prone to cause cavities” or causing cavities (caries).

The raw food diet is simply more cariogenic because:

– More fruit is consumed, therefore more sugar
– Because fruits and vegetables are low in calories, people tend to eat more often, therefore more exposure to sugar
– More exposure to acidity in lemons, oranges, pineapple, tomatoes, and other acidic foods
– Raw foodists tend to eat other foods that are cariogenic, like dried fruits

Because most people have inherited pretty weak genetics when it comes to teeth, problems are more likely to appear on a raw food diet.

Keep in mind that even wild monkeys will get severe dental problems leading to death when fed bananas (even organic ones).

Maybe our natural diet would have contained a lot more tough fiber, but that’s not the cause in modern days so we should not fall in the trap of “everything natural is perfect.

2) Brush your teeth first thing in the morning, as bacteria have been active during the night.

3) Use a tongue scraper, a metal kind (not plastic).

That’s because bacteria can be transferred from your tongue to your teeth.

4) Your longest brushing session should be before going to bed.

Use a soft toothbrush and don’t apply too much pressure. Use a technique to reach all four corners of the mouth. An electric tooth brush is good too.

5) You should brush for at least 5 minutes in total per day.

You don’t need to brush after or before every meal, but you need to brush for a total of 5 minutes or more per day. However you spread that out doesn’t matter as long as you reach every corner of the mouth.

6) Use a water irrigator once a day

Like the waterpik, or Vita-Jet.

7) Floss once a day.

8) Avoid glycerin in toothpaste.

Glycerin is a substance used in toothpaste. It creates a sticky coat around the teeth that prevents remineralization. Make sure to find a toothpaste without it.

9) However, if you’ve recently experienced dental decay, you should temporarily use a fluoride toothpaste or rinse to re-strengthen your enamel.

That’s for people who have had some serious dental problems. I know there are controversies around the use of fluoride but keep in mind I’m not advocating adding it to water. However, it really works to strengthen the enamel in individuals that have experienced decay, and can stop the progression of the disease.

10) Make sure to wait 30 minutes after meals to brush as to not weaken the enamel from the acids in your mouth. (In fact, you could even brush before your meals).

This is the basic technique but you also need to understand all the background and more advanced techniques such as how to monitor the bacteria content in your mouth.

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just controlling your diet does not address the root of the problem.

That’s why I publish the best course available on the topic, called “How to Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters.”

This program has been created by OraMedia and is the only course I have discovered that tells you exactly how to avoid dental problems for the rest of your life.
