  1. enjoyed your recent blog. wondering what your thoughts are reversing tooth decay? always thought it odd that our nails, skin, bones can all repair themselves, how come not our teeth?

  2. Hi Karen,

    Yes, I too believe that we can heal our teeth and reverse tooth decay, however….it is not a simple thing and I am learning! We do know that we can arrest decay and remineralize a lesion, but the problem is, that so far, we can’t replace the organic matrix that the minerals adhere to and form structure. So a hole will continue to exist but the bottom of that hole would become glassy hard and not soft and mushy. The problem is that the hole can then collect food debris and bacteria and undermine the healing that has occurred.

    There happens to be a company in Europe that has developed a product that can artificially replace this organic matrix and allow our own body to lay down minerals to actually replace missing structure. Unfortunately, it is not available in North America yet.

    I also think that part of the problem is that teeth are actual organs in and of themselves and that seems to put them in another class than nails, skin and bones.

    That being said, my latest mantra is: WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE DON’T KNOW….SO STAY TUNED!

    In Health
