I haven't had any teeth fall out yet but there is definitely significant damage. I've had 2 fillings and also had the edges of my lower front teeth filled because they were chipping away and were becoming razor sharp. Now I need the top front teeth fixed for the same reason, plus I require a crown and 2 more fillings. I try to stay up on my dental care and for the first time in my life I actually get nervous when I go to the dentist. If anything happens that requires a tooth to be pulled then I may require several Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber (HOC) treatments before I can have any extractions. The HOC treatments would help to insure there is enough blood flow to the jawbone to prevent necrosis. If the bone dies, well then you're in a world of sh*t because who wants to have their jawbone cut out? Not me! Ok, I'm being a little dramatic but it does happen quite often with oral or head and neck cancer patients.
In the spirit of taking care of my teefs, I'm committing to this 30 Day Oil Pulling Challenge. To learn about the benefits of oil pulling and how to do it, please check out this article.
