To go to the dentist’s office to fill cavities is so old fashioned. First your teeth must be drilled and then filled, and some may experience the so called ‘dentist stress’.
However, we have good news. There is no need to go to dentist to stop the cavity. You can do this at your own home.
The teeth are made of 4 layers that can be damaged by the mouth acid. These layers can be dissolved and the cavity might set in.
There are several symptoms that show whether you are affected by tooth decay or you’re not. These symptoms are pain when eating, discolored spots on teeth, tooth ache and sensitivity to cold or hot food. Every one of these can be eliminated if you go to the dentist and stop the cavity. But, for people who are stressed by the drilling effect, there is another solution.
Filling cavities without the need of a drill
Recently, a Japanese research has found a way to fill cavities without drilling. This research has revealed a paste, similar to the tooth enamel (hard mineralized protective shell also known as the first tooth layer). This kind of paste can be used to fill cavities without drilling them first. Therefore, stress aside, you will not need to go to the dentist again to fill cavities.
The research proved that cavities filled with this paste were sturdy and stable like their metal counterparts. Using this paste, the cavity can be filled without the need to drill any parts of the tooth, so that the chances to spread the decay will be reduced. You just have to remember that this paste can be used at first stages of decay.
How to use it
The paste is highly concentrated in hydrogen peroxide and acid, so it may cause inflammation of the gums if it’s not used properly. Therefore, if you want to use the paste at home, you should consult with your dentist first.
This paste can be purchased only by dentists and they distribute it to their patients. It gives effect in only 20 minutes, so your cavity will be filled in no time. The paste will be available for distribution next year.
Prevent tooth decay
Maintaining good oral hygiene is the solution to avoid and prevent cavity. If you brush your teeth every day with good toothpaste, and if you clean your mouth with anti-bacterial fluids, you can keep the cavity away and you will have very healthy teeth. Instead of toothpaste you can use some natural remedies such as natural coconut paste or oil (so you can try oil pulling). It is not a necessity to buy commercial toothpaste.
Then again, despite the toothpaste, the daily nourishment is the main factor for your oral health. The food you eat controls the re-mineralization process, so the more minerals your diet include, the healthier your teeth will become. But, brushing them with toothpaste each day can lower the risk of tooth decay. Natural remedies that you can use in order to mineralize your teeth are the eggshells.
