3 Reasons You Should Not Ignore Your Teeth And Dental Health

3 reasons not to ignore you teeth 3 Reasons

1. Implants are expensive.  In the US, a single implant can cost over $2000.   What if you need more?

2.  There is no good substitute for your own teeth!   That's a fact.   The best solutions for teeth replacement are still problematic.  Nothing can 100% replace what nature has given you.

3.  Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss and many dental professionals say that about 75% of us have some.

One of the most powerful tools I know of to help with keeping your dental health up to par is this one.

Dr. Bruce W Lee's Tootbrush Tip

dr lees toothbrush tipDr. Bruce W. Lee's toothbrush tip of the week can be found in our dental health community at this location:

It's a good tip for proper tootbrush use.   Using a toothbrush properly can really benefit you.

Using one improperly can be a problem.   I'll add to this tootbrush tip with my own:

Don't brush too hard!

Brushing is about disrupting plaque, it is not about 'scrubbing' teeth clean.   The plaque is easy to disrupt.  What is important though is disrupting it frequently.

 That's why you can't skip daily brushing of your teeth.   The plaque forms very quickly and constantly and must be disrupted constantly as well.

I Don't Always Brush My Teeth Before Going To Bed

Let's face it, it is true for a lot of us.

Here some ways this happens. 

  • Too tired and just want to sleep
  • "I'll  get up in 5 minutes to brush my teeth".   Then, the next thing you know it is the next morning.  
  • "I just don't care today".    
  • Too Drunk To Care 

I suspect we all have done this form time to time.   We all know it is not a good idea  and that we should be brushing and flossing our teeth before bed.  But sometimes,  we just don't do it.

If you want to, share your 'not brushing' experiences below.

Obviously, I cannot condone the behavior of 'not brushing before bed'.   I'm just acknowledging that it happens - even with me on rare occasions.

Do Not Brush Your Teeth With Baking Soda

Many People Are Advocating It,  But That Does Not Mean They Are Correct

* Be sure to share your opinion on this topic below in the comment section and read the comments that are there already.

I know that there are many people, even dental health professionals that extol the virtues of brushing with baking soda. 

Now, if you are using a toothpaste that contains baking soda, that is different than what I am talking about here.  That is a small amount of baking soda.  I'm addressing those who actually dip a wet toothbrush in pure baking soda and proceed to brush their teeth with it!

There are also those who advocate mixing baking soda with hydrogen peroxide and brushing with that.  I also believe that is problematic too.  I would not personally do either.  


Ask The Right Professional If You Cannot Accept What I Am Saying

I'm going to share the subjective and anecdotal evidence I have against the practice.  And, I am going to ask you, if you still have any doubts, to ask a periodontist about brushing with baking soda. Specifically ask him if doing so can cause gum recession

Baking soda is very abrasive and definitely has the ability to erode your gum line (gum recession) as does brushing too hard in general, even without baking soda.

I asked my own periodontist about this and he said he could definitely see how baking soda could cause gum erosion due to its abrasive property.

Subjective But Important Information I Have Collected

I have two stories to relate to you hear.   You will make your own choices of course,  I am only sharing the information I have heard from two separate sources.

1.  A Dentist  - I know a prevention oriented dentist named Ellie Phillips.  You may have heard of her.  She sells the Zellies brand of xylitol mints and gums.  Has developed the Clean, White Teeth protocol, and has written a book:  Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye.

She has over 30 years of real clinical experience behind her.   She told me that anytime she has seen a patient with rapid and unexplained (not due to gum disease or other disease) gum recession, they have always been using either hydrogen peroxide or baking soda in their mouths!

Anyone who has noticed this in their practice over a 30 year period, is worth paying attention to, in my opinion.

2.  The Second piece of information on this came from one of my customers.  I often have lengthy discussions with my customers.  On this particular day, probably a couple of years ago, we talked about baking soda.

I explained what Dr. Phillips said in number 1 above.   This customer told me that she had tried baking soda but didn't like the taste so she did not continue.

Then she had an epiphany.  Her husband had been brushing with baking soda for years.  And he DID have an unnatural amount of gum recession.   She said compared to the rest of his family he had more recession than they did.

OK, those are my two pieces of information to share.

Again, you are going to make your own choices.  I know that!.

But, I feel better knowing that I at least shared what appears to be the truth with you.   I understand my evidence is subjective.  But that is the best I have to go on.

One thing I often say is this, "It is better to error on the side of caution".  This means, "It is better to be safe than sorry."
