I chewed an HCL tablet, and now my tooth is really sensitive when I chew on it? HELP?

I had indigestion so decided to buy Betaine HCL tablets for my stomach. They smelled like mint, and tasted like mint but really sour, so I thought it was okay to chew them. I chewed a tablet yesterday and after eating it I thought that my teeth were all "squeaky". You know that feeling you get when your teeth are really clean, but this time they were way more "squeaky" than just the clean feeling. But today my teeth feel fine, OTHER THAN MY FRONT BOTTOM TOOTH. It hurts to chew anything on that tooth!??


I feel like it might have been eroded a little by the HCl acid, and perhaps the dentin is exposed? Is there any way to treat this problem at home without going to the dentist? Will the dentin get stronger and stop being sensitive like this over time? PLEASE HELP, I am scared and don't know what to do.??

There are many people who successfully heal tooth decay with a combination of fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil. I spoke with a woman last week who is having success healing a tooth in which her dentist told her she needed a root canal. She was buying her second bottle because, after only three weeks, she went from not being able to chew on that side at all to being able to chew soft foods with no pain. She didn't want to run out.

Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil is naturally high in vitamins A & D and Green Pastures High Vitamin Butter Oil is naturally high in vitamin K. Dr. Westin A. Price, a dentist who studied indigenous people from around the world, discovered that combining the two multiplied their beneficial properties. Ramiel Nagal, author of Cure Tooth Decay, recommends the combination to do just that in his book.

Getting vitamins from actual food sources is better for our bodies than getting them from individual vitamin supplements. They are more readily absorbed with the food source than by themselves, and you cannot take too much, as with the individual vitamins. Plus there are tons of other health benefits from taking fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil. Get it here from NourishingWorld.com.

The HCL is Betaine HCL is Hydrochloric Acid, aka stomach acid.?? These supplements are used by people with stomach acid deficiency, which are caused by antacid abuse, H. Pylori, lack of minerals, etc.


Chewing on these tablets means you've released a bunch of acid on that tooth and ate away some of the minerals and thus weakened that tooth.?? Get some calcium, magnesium, Vitamins D3 and K2 and both take them as supplements and if you can, make a paste out of them and cover the affected tooth with it.
