Rami Nagel wrote a book about oral health, and of course, the Weston A. Price book would be best looked at, along with Doug Simon's videos.
But for little bits of practical help, I go back to Katie, at WellnessMama, I use her toothpaste and tooth powder, and have done the oil pulling, changed my diet... I think the bone broth and the oil pulling can be good for gums especially...she has a remedy section on her site, and has articles in there about oral health. I had already had much loss, but have been able to postpone (weasel out of) more dentistry since beginning her general protocol for healthy teeth, gums, and and mouth.
After reading here, will be looking into the horsetail idea...thanks for sharing : )

Thank you, Xisca - I just looked at their website and it's a product to buy so no formula reveal! Dadgummit. Speaking of gums, Cris - would you share the "recipe" for your tooth powder? I've been mixing coconut oil, baking soda and peppermint EO. It's a little too much "salt" from the baking soda and it irritates my lips. Now I have a new problem...jeesh. But it sure does get my mouth clean!
My dentist was really helpful and she told me that I was grinding my teeth again during my sleep, due to tension at work. I started reusing my mouthguard and that has made a world of difference with my teeth. Part of the deal is fitting it very precisely to my teeth so it doesn't affect my ability to sleep. Also daily flossing is key because I eat so many green leafies and vegies that some, like celery, get stuck in my teeth. I no longer feel that pain with cold or sour foods. Yay!
I am going down to the lab. Do NOT let anyone in. Not even this tiny ad:
