Daily Prompt: Cavity

Sometimes one thing can lead to another. I broke a tooth recently and when my dentist took an x-ray of the messed up molar a tooth right next to it was discovered to have a cavity. I suppose I need to do a better job of taking care of my choppers/teeth. Cavities are expensive and painful. Too many of them would lead to something more extreme.

    I’ve been using distilled water on and off to clean my teeth. The water where I live is pretty bad so I try not to use it, but it’s kind of in everything I eat and my distiller only gives me about a gallon of water every few hours.

    Many dentists believe that fluoride helps teeth, but I don’t think there’s really much if any studies that shows that it prevents tooth decay. I know that health industries have come pretty far, but I think there’s a lot that we still don’t understand.

    Most people might think this sounds ridiculous, but I don’t think fluoride is a good thing. There doesn’t seem to be any proof that it’s essential that we need it as well as all the other stuff that’s in our water.

    I know my research isn’t bulletproof, but even the FDA considers fluoride to be a drug and not a nutrient. In my own opinion I don’t think it a good idea to put that in our water.

        I hope all works out with your teeth. I’m much older but use a Care Credit card at my dentist, which allows me to set up 36 and 48 months billing, at a lower interest. I mention this because I was facing a lot of tooth repairs. It helped me out with my eye surgeries (glaucoma and cataract). This is not a ad or am I paid. Just when someone helped me know I could use insurance and still have a big balance. This helped. . . (You can delete the name of the card if you wish, Tony!) Smiles, Robin
