Aloha Ora Wellness team!
A few months ago, I went to the dentist after roughly 5 years of no dental visits. At the end of the checkup and cleaning they told me I had 2 cavities in my 2 back molars that had both progressed into the dentin, which as you know is the second mineral layer past the enamel.
They had offered to perform the classic drill n’ fill, but having read a few articles from your emails and website, along with wellness mama’s website who led me to you guys, I refused the service and told them I would try to heal my teeth in a more natural way. The dental hygienist told me she had never seen anyone in her 12 years as a hygienist reverse cavities like I had, which I then replied to her saying I guess I will be the first.
After arriving home I immediately started to dive into articles from the OraWellness website and listen to expert interviews. I found one interview with Joette Calabrese to be the most helpful in my case.
After I gathered a ton of new information I felt super inspired to start my mouth healing journey. I started by using the proper bass brush technique with the bash brush I already had, and also started to use the shine powder daily and also combine it with coconut oil to make a paste and apply it to my molars after brushing at night.
I also changed the way I was eating by cutting out most acidic foods and carbs such as tomato sauce, potato chips and bread. Besides getting rid of a lot of foods from my diet I also added in a lot more nutrient dense animal foods such as organ meats and raw milk cheeses.
After meals I started rinsing my mouth and gargling with spring water, which is the only water I allowed in my mouth… no tap water with fluoride at all, not even to rinse after brushing.
I took the advice of Joette Calabrese and started to make my own bone broth and tried to consume that at least once a day and added in grass fed kefir yogurt as well. I also started taking calc fluor and calc phos twice daily.
Once I got my daily routine setup I went back to more articles and saw one on the importance of dentists who provide ozone treatments. I had to find a different dentist as the one I went to previously did not use ozone. I booked an appointment at the new dentist and they did the ozone treatment for me. I went back twice after 8 weeks between visits. On my third visit the dentist who was applying the ozone told me my molars were actually starting to reverse and the mineral was growing back.
After about 5 months of following my strict routine and ozone treatments I wanted to see how my teeth were coming along so I booked an appointment for cleaning and checkup at my new dentist. When the cleaning was finished and the final checkup was performed, there was no mention of any cavities! It was like they forgot about me ever having them or that they never existed. I was pleasantly surprised and so happy that all that time and dedication to diet and brushing paid off.
