Go to dentist for cleaning every 6 months.
You can't do it at home.
Plaque builds up, harbors bacteria that can get into blood and go to heart and damage valves, leading to heart transplant.
May cause arthritis in joints, dementia, and other infective and autoimmune diseases.
People with the worst teeth get more health problems.
Avoid sugar and flour that causes tooth and health problems.
I finally found a good dental group, after 4 attempts in this state.
8 young blonde females, Lutherans.
Females have smaller hands and better fine motor skills in fingers so can do a better job in small mouth.
One new girl has grandparents in West Covina and is from LA getting married in Hawaii next week.
My grandparents also lived in West Covina when I was 5 years old.
Dental group is very computerized with latest techniques.
Photo scan inside mouth so can see things much better these days, virtual reality like I worked on in 1992.
I did not see them overlay Xrays onto the photos on the computer.
I was a junk food kid, like many, candy, cakes, pies, ice cream.
Caused cavities filled by age 19 now old fillings mercury neurotoxin.
Need to gradually replace as needed with modern fillings that will work better over the long run.
Some of that old mercury leaks into brain causing dementia if you don't run enough to grow new brain cells.
Finding the right dentist and having the right work done is a real challenge.
Most of the population gets too much sugar and cavities and don't get proper care.
Dentists have to look at that mess all day so get frustrated and sloppy.
You should move to a place where population have good teeth and dentists get practice caring for optimized teeth healthy patients.
Natural fruit sugar is better for teeth than candy.
e.g. Apples, Oranges, Grapefruit, Plums, Berries, Grapes, carrots, tomatoes, raisins, prunes, apricots,….
Desire for sweets is a signal to eat more fruits not candy.
Some go for coffee and chocolate for the sugar content.
Coffee cannot cure a fruit deficiency.
I get seasonal fruits in large bags.
