This is now an old myth that we need fluoride especially in oral care products like toothpaste. Or any other related tools to wash our teeth and it will be strong and healthy. Yeah, I used to believe this long time ago until I understood how this industry is full of lies for profit.
A toxic waste product, resold for profits
Not really, quite the opposite. Do you think even for a second that if you put a toxic waste material into your mouth to make your precious teeth stronger and healthier, will make you healthy? Do you think that what is told and represented to you in nicely packaged boxes with colorful design and nice words will do any good?
People are endlessly naive. We didn’t use toxic chemicals a long time ago in human history, we just didn’t brush our teeth. Also, it is about diet, according to the actual nation’s habits. Common sense.
Fluoride has nothing to do even in the physical human body. Also not tap water in certain countries, mostly in the USA. Just do a research about what fluoride does organically and you will be shocked. Of course about anything on you do research will provide you false promises and lies, scams, misconceptions and the lesser findings will be about the actual debunking of what is the real issue.
It IS an industry, which needs to be sold
So, let’s make up an industry on false labels and for example, let’s call a mental problem which maybe came from trauma and call it XY Disorder. And here you go a new product and industry. It is all about money and greed, not health! You can be healthy if you want to. Your teeth are not so different from many issues.
Look at what happens when fluoride goes deeper into the human body, into organs and main areas. I won’t sum it up because these researches are everywhere, how detrimental the whole fluoride nonsense is. I admit that we have no evidence first hand and maybe we are wrong even in the toxicity level but it is not doing any good in the body. It is like you take in radioactive capsules to dissolve some problems lol.
What happens is in a nutshell, you will brush your teeth with chemicals in a sugar-like substance (flavored and sweet). Maybe I’m wrong at some point but doesn’t make any difference. The enamel and also existing fillings will erode and rotten around and below.
I guess it can race with an acidic party of eating apples all day long lol. Your mouth is full of bacterias and they are eating on anything sugar-like “food” there. That environment will fuel them grow in numbers. They will catch the food particles and sugar on your teeth’s surface and make acid as a byproduct. Nothing new, only cause and effect. Just wash them down and rinse, use floss.
Toothpaste could be good orally but not with chemicals, try homemade!
I support the fact that we can make own home products from relatively natural compounds to keep our oral health, is ok. Well, I’m very lazy so I’m rather using tap water to make my electric brush wet. I know for many people, doing own research is equals with laziness.
Big companies are not hiding those elements but who knows what is not written on the back of the tube. Some are actually sugar-like stuff, some are chemicals which have nothing to do with oral health. You are putting sugar on your teeth which are doing quite the opposite of strong teeth. Same with those crap alcoholic mouthwashes, if it would be real pure alcohol, I guess not so many people would take it into their mouth without vomiting.
You are leaving it on your enamel for the night to make it worse.
Look at that nice gelatine like paste mmm, nice and tasty, huh? Lol.
Misleading new industries and concepts
Don’t think even for a second that some new toothpaste products (called like organic, BIO, natural) will do anything well. EVERY product which is manmade and sold worldwide are harmful in longterm.
You are putting chemicals into your mouth and that is the first safety line for your body to dissolve them. Some infants are using toothpaste for specially made for kids and they may swallow it. I know I did it too when I was little and it can cause white enamel discoloration. But if they don’t indoctrinate it in us from childhood, we may question it, right?
There is a relatively newest fluoride hype like amine fluoride (I guess I wrote it the right way). It is still a waste chemical in another form. These industries really think if something is labeled the other way with nice description, it is ok. I know from first hand that it doesn’t do anything, any good surely. That promised thin layer for protection won’t happen in the long run. Maybe I’m wrong.
How rumors are doing trouble and what to do
I tell you how dumb regular people are. Someone hears from the TV or from a neighbor how detrimental is that XY toothpaste which has a black line on the package for example. This is how humans are thinking. No common sense, they fear what others said must be right and if you stop using it, you are in trouble.
And people’s teeth are rotten, bad, full of fillings. They should wash their teeth more frequently, not eat all day long. Just let their teeth regenerate and rest and use dental floss. But mostly use the right tool as an electric brush.
Electric brush with round head, pulsating, will surely clean out all the surface from the neck till the top. I’m still amazed when I’m lazy and use a normal brush and when I’m finished I only hurt my gum line and the whole food particle subsidence is STILL on the gumline. You can pull it down with your nails. Ridiculous, isn’t it?
What will carry you to the dentist sooner and their advice
You are not safe from visiting the dentist at all. They will rarely or never tell you to stop using toothpaste or any chemicals, which are called oral care products. If you think that using fluoride will cost less, you were totally wrong. That shit will weaken the whole tooth structure over time. Our teeth mostly going bad because of today world’s bad eating habits.
I tested my dentist for a while once. I have the best dentist in the world, she is one of the best in her job but she is only doing what she learned and what her carrier is about. Don’t think for a second that a dentist will tell you to stop using anything related to this business.
She said to me that if I only use water to wash it isn’t so good and because toothpaste is the lubricant for brushing… This explanation is pretty crappy. The enamel and good fillings won’t suffer from any mechanical damage in my opinion… you are not brushing with an electrical tool like with an air hammer or a grinder lol. Also, the enamel will be strong if food particles won’t weaken it, especially between the teeth. That is the worst case scenario.
My advice to You
Don’t use anything which is sold in retail shops, supermarkets. You CAN make own product at home like some tooth soap trials are very good with natural elements mixed together. But I recommend stop using them (the store ones). I’m NOT using any toothpaste since maybe 3 years and I didn’t regret it.
What to use? Water lol, make your brush head wet while brushing. If I had teeth problems later in my life they were ONLY caused by remnants of childhood teeth problems or old fillings. I can’t agree on genetics, maybe it is a blame also. This is what beliefs are doing.
Wash your teeth twice a day, after lunch if needed and if there is anything to wash off. At the MINIMUM before bedtime. Forget this idiotism of washing after waking up… that is totally illogical, the bacterias are already everywhere, just rinse with water and force the water between your teeth. If you forgot floss before bedtime, do it in the morning. It is up to you.
Use round-headed (mobility) electrical toothbrush with battery or whatever it is made up. Use soft-headed ones if you can. Normal toothbrush won’t do anything. Normal non-electrical toothbrushes are just crap, people are washing their GUM with them and the whole gumline will pull back. You hurt it, it will escape.
Just use your other index finger or fingers and pull your mouth to see whatever you are doing. Don’t bother if somebody thinks this is ridiculous… who cares, you need healthy teeth, right? Make it accurately.
Use dental floss with wax once daily or once every two days. It is very important! Food particles between teeth are causing the biggest damages. I know, I sucked with one tooth which is now having a new crown. Acidic food particles are slowly building up and damaging the enamel between the teeth and causing root canal treatments. Later on new crowns with implants.
Sometimes if you have buildup, you can use a little pinch of baking soda powder. Sprinkle it onto the wet brush head and wash your teeth with it gently without harming the gum line. Don’t do it frequently, you don’t want to damage the enamel. Just maybe once in a week or two weeks. You don’t want to wear it off.
Wash your tongue, keep it clean from debris and buildup for good breath too. It won’t make food source for bacterias there.
Your whole oral care and the condition of teeth depends on only the fact that:
1. Clean away ALL food particles from the teeth and between them,
2. Keep a non-acidic environment as the bacterias won’t feed on your teeth enamel.
Don’t be stupid brushing all day, just do this whole thing naturally with common sense. Your dentist surely could ask you stop this idiotism what I’m representing here because they need money from you to “work on”. Companies need money from you to sell you crap. Supply and demand.
If you don’t feel safe of just brushing with water then ok, try to find recipes on the web which are causing your teeth and mouth care to be non-acidic and not ingesting any chemicals. Herbal remedies are the best with some mint or any other extracts.
