Natural cures for a bad tooth with a hole in it? How did people survive these things before modern dentistry?

I've had all of my wisdom teeth pulled out and for the first time in my life am experiencing serious dental discomfort. There is a hole in a single tooth. Is there a natural way to cure and seal a bad tooth?

I had a tooth that had a hole in it. Went to a holistic dentist and they saved it! Put some type of safe dental material and plugged up the hole. Tooth is fine now. My regular dentist had no solution except to pull it... so I opted for the holistic dentist.

No. People as little as a hundred years ago lost their teeth early. People of my Grandparents' generation looked forward to having all dentures. Old dental practices were bloody and painful. Go to the dentist.

Eat more yogurt/dairy, supplement with vitamin k2, get exercise, vitamin d, brush, floss and see a dentist because a cavity is like a hundred bucks but a root canal is $1,000-$2,000.

There's a book by Ramiel Nage titled, "Cure Tooth Decay". The author claims that teeth can be regenerated:

  • teeth can be remineralized
  • teeth can grow new enamel
  • teeth can grow secondary dentin

Moreover, he delves into the real causes tooth decay, "...Tooth decay is caused by nutrient deficiencies and not bacteria. This has been proven in both animal and laboratory experiments..." And, he shares his remedy for repairing damaged teeth including:

  • Daily doses of a Fermented cod liver/butter oil mix
  • Grass-fed dairy
  • Bone broth / bone marrow

It's funny how the usual suspects show up as the antithesis of oral health:

  • Whole grains
  • Hydrogenated oils
  • Sugar

There is quite a bit of information available on the web site. Read more here: http://www.curetoothdecay.com/index.html

Theoretically, if you cut out anything cariogenic in your diet (ie sugars, starches) and keep the area scrupulously clean, you could halt the caries. However, the fact that you've been getting spontaneous pain makes me suspect you might be beyond that point and would probably be better getting it checked out and if necessary filled rather than risking toothache, possible root canal therapy (ugh) or even extraction.

Addendum:oh and how did our ancestors cope? Well many of them did not have anything like such a cariogenic diet as many modern people, but those that did get decay often got abscesses and must frequently have perished in agony from their infections. Three cheers for dentistry and antibiotics.

Well, call me what you like, but I had to go get my filling re-filled yesterday. It's the only one I've got and so I feel pretty lucky that my teeth are otherwise in good shape. That icky sensitivity I was experiencing - gone. So i figure no point getting my panties in a knot about one filling. If I had a mouth full of mercury... well, then I'd be slightly concerned.

If you have the money, you could look into Porcelain fillings.
