Cavities Since Going Rawtill4?


So Im getting really frustrated because I've been high carb vegan, mostly raw for over 2 years now and every time I go for a dental checkup I have more and more cavities. I never used to get this many cavities before. I don't get it because I brush and floss every day and my diet is super healthy. I did stop using toothpaste when I went high carb but I know most people eating living this lifestyle don't use toothpaste either and don't have any issues. I don't know whether I should start using it again or not? 

Has anyone else had dental problems since going 811/high carb or since you stopped brushing with toothpaste?

  • @caroline K, I just wanted to ask a few questions about miswak. How many times a day do you use it? Do you rinse your mouth out with water after using it? Can you still floss if you use it and can you brush your teeth with a natural toothpaste and regular toothbrush once a day in addition to using the miswak?
  • Do you all think I should get the cavities filled even if they're really small?

  • awesome, I'll definitely check it out!

  • Are you drinking water?

    Are you bulimic?

    Have you been bulimic?

    Do you let your mouth get dry?

    Is your dentist legit?

    • 1. Oh yea, at least 3 litres a day.

      2. I'm not bulimic, but Ive struggled on and off with anorexia for many years. 

      3. Not on a regular basis

      4. I would like to think so!

  • How many times a day do you eat something sweet or acidic? Our teeth can handle these foods 4-5 times a day, if you eat those foods more times, your tooth enamel is not able to protect your teeth.
  • No toothpaste? What neutralized the acid then?

    Oh it only lasts a week. Hmm.

  • I've never heard of Miswak. Do you use toothpaste with it? How long does it last? Do you have to keep buying more?

  • Are you eating rice?
