How are your teeth holding up? I have 5 badly damaged teeth, luckily they are all in the back, but its getting harder to find places in my mouth to chew with. If only dental work didn't cost so much.

Get some dentures

 No.293209

Pretty bad, but not too bad. I have 12 fillings, at least 5 teeth with cavities (most likely more because I rarely floss), one molar missing, most likely lose another two soon.
But I'm more concerned with my eyes, I have astigmatism my right eye sees worse than my left eye and it's driving me insane, I can't enjoy video games because of it and I can't afford glasses.

Stop brushing with fluoride and other "whitening" acids that burn the healing layer of our teeth off
Decontaminate only with alcohol and salt water to preserve good bacteria
Chew mastic gum or tough foods. Will encourage your body to fill loose gaps between gum and tooth
if want sugar just chew with your tongue to not force it in to your teeth crevices
Avoid mouth breathing and excessive smiling, dry teeth are weak teeth
No crunchy salty snacks, might as well chew sandpaper
Avoid chewing sandpaper

Don't give the dental industry the hair off your butt

Had 2 cavities, got them filled in Panama for $60, while on a trip. I felt like some international billionaire who just found another way to game the system.

They are completely fucked and held together with hope and DIY fillings.
I need that full $40k rip-and-replace thing but, well, $40k.
It’s hilarious how much was spent on retainers and braces and all of that when in the end my teeth just completely disintegrated starting in my early 20s.
They actually weren’t *that* bad until COVID. The final combo of neglect and, for some reason, a brief affair with Kratom, completely did them in.

Okay I guess, got a couple crowns now. Taking better care now.

Really though you'll just have to bite the bullet at some point, preferably soon. Dental problems will only get worse and can lead to abscesses and more serious infections.

Yeah phosphorus, calcium and magnesium are very important for teeth. And know that nearly all nuts, whole grains and legumes contain high amounts of phytates which greatly reduce absorption of said minerals. This is why vegans are often unhealthy with shitty teeth. But if you ferment and/or sprout it will eliminate most phytates. The best is with wheat and rye sourdough bread, which eliminates like 80-90%, and with sprouting it will get the rest and increase other nutrients.

Good information. I'm halfway through getting $3500 of fillings done. I left it 12 years and thought I'd need to get them pulled out but luckily only required fillings. Even the cavities under the gums.

I eat terrible and rarely sleep due to porn addiction.

 No.293722

They're reasonably fucked due to neglect

 No.293987

I'm nearly 30 now and have a few cavities and no dental insurance or money. It doesn't help that I can't stop grinding the shit out of them and now have noticeable wear.

Fuck my life. By 40 I'm probably going to look like Quentin Tarantino.
