I have a few cavities and I get some pain in them when i have eaten sometimes. i guess acidic and sweet foods are the worse.
(O/T i know but at the moment im not sure whether to get them filled with composites or try and heal them naturally, if you have any ideas on that please help me as its driving me mad at the mo. On the upside i recently found out from the dentist i had no Amalgams
which is a bonus)
Currently am brushing my teeth with toothsoap (www.toothsoap.com)
I have expiremented with various mouthwashes, especially to take this cavity pain away.
on the theory it is bacteria causing the pain, tonight i tried again 8 horizontal drops of Lugols
in about 4oz of water and took 3 small mouthfulls of this and gargled for a few mins each time (this has helped with the pain in all but one of the cavities)
I tried to google 'iodine mouthwashes' and someone said you gotta be careful coz they will stain your teeth.
Makes sense really, do you lot tend to agree with this? would this staining be kind of permanent do you think?
Finally if anyone could provide any of ideas for mouthwashes or anything to take away this cavity pain also appreciated. next on my list will be dilluted h2o2 and a baking soda solution (not together, separately).
