Most everyone of you ladies is way ahead of me on all things but yesterday I went to a dentist that is fairly progressive on new ideas for health and well being. I went in due to the link of mouth health and cancer, also because I have one failing tooth that is a root canal tooth and there is a link between that and cancer too. Once again I have put my teeth in the back of the line to everyone else in the family always. I will spend 3 hours in the dental chair tomorrow and then another two hours in the next few weeks to catch up on that. This dentist also wants me to get the root canal tooth and another pulled by an oral surgeon when I can afford that bill!
Anyway, with him having the knowledge that two weeks ago I had a hysterectomy due to uterine cancer here is what he said.
DO NOT drink tap water ever! Bring your water in from another source as long as it is free from flouride, DO NOT use flouride toothpaste! There are a few on the market that exclude it, I forgot to get the names but if anyone needs me to I will get them and pass it on. DO go to the dentist regularly to make sure there arent any problems in your mouth with inflammation, due to it being a cancer trigger.
I knew all this and have been trying to bring water in but that can be a pain, he doesn't even want me to brush my teeth with tap water!!!! I hadn't changed my toothpaste either. He believes that the government will have to remove flouride from public water supplies in the next 10 years because of all the studies pointing to it causing all kinds of illnesses. My husband and I knew about the oral health and heart link for years and I pushed him into the office every 6 months due to that but I haven't been for about 5 years, I have a huge dentist phobia but yeah ME, I have found a dentist to cater to that and me. Lisa is now up front with everyone else to take care of herself!!!!!!
