  1. Why is nothing said about drinking raw milk to remineralize teeth or doing coconut oil pulling to rid the mouth of bad bacteria or about maintaining superior gut health to encourage overall maintenance of friendly bacteria to fight off the undoubtedly stuff? This is ridiculous and outdated info and I can't believe it's being sent to me by my insurance company. 😳

  2. go to your local gp to prescribe you a 250mg of azithromycin tablets 3 tablet. its the best antibiotic. take 1 tablet a day for 3 days then wait a week. you will notice that your gum will stop bleeding and your tooth will stop to wobble as progress. then go to your local dentist to have your teeth clean. periodontitis is a germ that reside in gum that need to get rid off in able for your gum to heal. thier is a cure and its cheap.

    My daughter suffered from a terrible gingivitis for more than 23 years which started after she turned 5 we all thought it will end but got even worse as days went by. We tried all several treatments and therapy prescribed by various doctors we met but to no avail, she have always complain of teeth pain because of the pus between her teeth and gums. She usually tells me she fee pain when chewing. This were steady pains that disrupted her entire life, and she slept less because of this.It was during a casual conversation with a friend that i learned about dr Williams herbal medicine I was able to contact him on his email address. and give him all the necessary information that he needed,few day later he sent me the herbal portion and his medicine was able to restore her teeth back to normal and she is very okay now without any side effects whatsoever. If you have any teeth disease , do not hesitate to contact him on [email protected] for advice and for his product. I hope this also helps someone out there.

  6. I hate myself for letting my teeth get this bad…i hated brushing my teeth when i was a kid and my parents really never made me do it. Ive had 4 extractions and my front tooth completely broke off from an airbag (crazy right??)…now i have to rinse with peroxide and sleep with a humidifier because i have dry mouth. Brush your teeth people!!! This sucks


  8. I have stage 3 heading in to stage 4. And I can't go to the dentist, I have no insurance and no way to pay for it. Well guess I need go get the vicegrips and hope for the beat.

  20. I actually agree with you guys. In my childhood i suffered from same problem. I had cavities but my parents neglected it. Which in result was a tooth loss for me. I advice you people to take care of you oral hygiene and consult dentists regularly. if you live in cooper city and want to consult Periodontist, you can visit: https://drsalzmann.com/

  21. Stop eating too much sweets and carbohydrates. Stop smoking too while you're at it. Without teeth there will be no health. 👅 Take care everyone! God bless.

  22. I wish I could get my teeth extracted and get dentures. I'm only 28, but I have severe tooth decay, and I stay sick from it. It affects my heart and makes it hurt. It is very uncomfortable. I'm very poor and don't have any insurance.

  23. The weird thing is, my teeth are pearly white, and straight. But only on my bottom front teeth gums are lowering and coming off. The rest of my gums are pink and look intact to the teeth
