I keep reading online how to reverse a cavity with nutrition. I think I’m missing something though. Although my cavity isn’t getting bigger, it is not getting smaller either. Would a Holistic Dentist be able to help me with the missing ingredients?
The reason your cavity isn’t getting smaller is because you can’t heal a cavity by nutrition. We’ve seen the natural health sites that advocate this. While Dr. Hadgis is a Holistic Dentist, he also will only do something which is backed by real evidence. There has been no evidence indicating what they are advocating works.
What is in the works is being able to re-grow teeth. Though, even this is still in the beginning stages using stem cell research. It is very promising.
Be careful of assuming the cavity isn’t growing. While it may not be growing wider, it could very well be burrowing deeper. If it reaches the pulp you will need a root canal treatment and very likely a dental crown.
How a Holistic Dentist Can Aide You
What a holistic dentist can help you with is in finding alternative fillings. Instead of an amalgam filling, they’ll provide you with a mercury-free composite filling. They only work with healthy, bio-compatible materials.
In addition to being mercury-free, they also know how to do a sanitary amalgam removal. So, if you have any silver fillings left in your mouth, they can safely remove it so you don’t inhale the mercury.
Don’t put off getting this looked at. You don’t want it to suddenly blow up into a dental emergency.
