    My parents were immigrants and couldn't afford dental treatment in the late 50's and 60's. Hence I am sick with a mouth full of rotted teeth. My husband and I saved our money and made sure our son didn't drink Juicy Juice and other sugar laden drinks and candy. He iis 34 today and still doesn't have a cavity. My husband has died and I am trying to reverse what has happened to me by getting rid of all the bad teeth in my mouth.

Variety of red meats(grass fed, beef/lamb/venison/bison), poultry, eggs, seafood(fin fish, bivalves, crustaceans), dairy, legumes, vegetables, fruits, grains, wild mushrooms, olive oil, butter, etc. ~90% organic/wild/grass fed etc. I learned by “self taught “ …not from my mother nor my father.

    @Leslie Snyder This has evolved because Governments collect taxes from the masses, therefore need to be held to account. If the government chooses to legislate about trade and control how we can trade they must be responsible for the quality of the trade. Re health, I have no problem with paying an extra tax levy for health care knowing my family can use it. It is no different to a system where people pay for 'insurance' to gain the same access.

    Beautiful lady and obviously a fantastic dentist. I am 62 years old born and raised in England of Caribbean born parents. Growing up in the UK in the sixties and seventies there were sweet shops on every corner filled with every kind of confectionery you could imagine. And these shops were always situated near a primary school. So most kids irrespective of colour indulged to there hearts content as did I. Fast forward to today and myself and most of my generation have a mouth full of dentures or expensive implants. Now my parents generation who are in there eighties and early nineties (Those still alive) possess mouths with very few cavities or bad teeth. Because they grew up in the Caribbean with no sweet shops on every corner, only natural organic fruits and flossing there teeth with sugar cane. Plus no fluoride in the water, they drank fresh spring water. So much for modern life!

The only way we can avoid this is if we turn from our rebellion and hatred of God, and cry out to him to have mercy on us because of Christ's sacrifice on the cross, where he died in place of those who would trust in him to pay the punishment for all their sins. Please do this, for it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. ;(

Unfortunately I’ve had many problems with my teeth and I’m now facing extraction of one of my front teeth after a failed apicoectomy. I really wish I could’ve understood the gravity of my actions in the past. I am 58 now and I’m relatively well but I worry how much damage I’ve done to my body because of my past sugar intake. I really enjoyed this talk and I love how this beautiful woman is sharing her experience in order to help others!

    Thank you doctor. I have my own practice in India and most of my time is spent counselling my patients how our lifestyle directly affects our overall health, not just teeth. Some take and thank me for the advice, while some just ignore. Regardless, it's our job to advise them. Many of these patients end up getting diabetes and hypertension along with cardiovascular disease. It hurts more to see children affected with all carious teeth. Counselling their parents are more challenging. Some refuse to believe.

    God bless you for caring about your patients and their overall health. I prefer to be a patient to doctors who didn't attend medical school in the US because they're not taught to read the body but instead to overdose us with meds. Doctors trained in India and South America are trained to read the body and recommend healthy eating habits - huge difference!

It's the culture, the conceptions of sugar that need to be changed. Diet have 'memories'. You tend to crave the same stuff you eat offen when you are little. Less sugar, Please.

    In 1986 I was exchange student in the US. Even as a teenager, I was shocked to see how much sugar was given to children. Cola was readily available and given to toddles. (At home in The Netherlands, my two brothers and I shared a litre of cola over the weekend. Each one 150 ml glass on Friday, one on Saturday). Our mother gave us fluoride pills when we grew up. At 42, I had my very first cavity. Ten years later, it is still the only one I have. My brothers have few cavities as well.

    @Schevalirae Now I know. I trusted dentists, I used to. I had the best dental insurance and on the top paid top dollars on the best endodontists to do my root canals. No more. No more. I believe it was a chain of unfortunate events. I was convinced by the dentist that one missing tooth is going to ruin my entire bite and he did the bridge, grinded one healthy tooth to nothing to put a bridge one it and that tooth started hurting and the endodontist did the root canal on it through the bridge. On that day I was feeling under the weather, some kind of cold or flu, lightly feverish. I should never done it while feeling sick but I did not know. So I pushed through and never been the same. Also, just had another crowned rootcanaled teeth extracted done by the same endodontist. All his handy dandy work is coming out of my mouth. From now on it is either tooth staying in my mouth or going out, you cannot sell me root canal or crown anymore. Done. I wish I knew before but such is life. Also, that tooth that was used to put bridge one was extracted shortly after, it was giving me headaches and I had a bone infection developed after the extraction. Neardly died of sepsis. This time I used herbal rinse, strong St Jonh Wort's and it healed faster than normal.

    @Nature lover’s adventures Oh my gosh! From what I understand, root canals are THE WORST!!! My Dad had a root canal in 1979 and broke capillaries in his face from just making it through the pain and the procedure itself, never had another one done. I've always shuddered at the idea of one. Thankfully that has never came up.

    @Jonathan G It did not despite my dentists trying to sell me extra stuff and scarying me. Me trusting their stories forced me to get a bridge for one tooth only and ruined my other tooth that lead to unnecessary root canal shortly after and Epstein Barr virus right after the appointment, I came home after root canal and collapsed on the floor. Went on disability after that. So, keep your dentist story to yourself. Ok. Nice sales pitch. I am now missing 5 teeth and they are not collapsing. But root canaled teeth were ruining my life, done by expensive endodontist. Maybe I should start mentioning his name publicly so he stop ruining people lives.

My 2 step-daughter's will also be very interested I am sure. They are both Registered Nurses. I do not have great teeth, and now, at age 67 I wish that I had not been allowed so many lollies, or chocolate and sweet things as a child. I think I get "addicted" very easily to sweet things, and I find it very difficult to stop having them...but I have done it, and will continue to try! I definitely don't want to end up losing my teeth, and having to wear dentures in my older age. Thank you so much! From Sue in Australia

    I am 76 and for the last year I have watched many KZread Health videos like this one. I can't begin to tell how much I have changed my eating habits and wish I had done so when I was young, even though I heped my children to eat heathily because they were in sports. My daughter fared well but my son was expected to gain weight for college football.That was the beginning of a weight problem for him. What damage many sports do is truly a shame!

    I made it to my early 40’s eating a diet that consisted of little to no sugar and only had one cavity in my life , got married and my wife cooks with a lot of sugar and started bringing home candy as a treat for me , I haven’t gained any weight, so I wasn’t thinking my consumption was excessive, but my teeth began to fall apart and ended up losing 5 teeth within 6 years. I suspected sugar was a contributing factor, but I have chalked it up to age , now I’m gonna eliminate sugar from my diet completely. Thank you

    @Cutesy Bunny That will all add up. My community cook with sugar..Lots of curries and meat dishes start off with browning sugar. Then sweet cakes and drinks. My mother taught me to cook with sugar. Thank goodness I learnt how to cook with spices instead. In the Caribbean diabetes is an epidemic.. People are losing limbs, sight and a growth in dementia and Alzheimer's. Years ago people lived long and healthy lifes. Now almost everyone has diabetes on the small Islands. Copying American fast food habits and buying American produce. So yes, if a WIFE is cooking with sugar and then you add the American sugared products this equals a total DISASTER!

    I have heard that fluoride negatively affects the thyroid. It is said that too much fluoride is another cause for white spots on teeth. Also, that plaque build up is attributed to an excess of calcium (sometimes, other minerals).The body leaches it out via the salivary glands to try to rid the excess and it collects on the teeth.

    This is why a well-rounded diet is important. Eating too much calcium without enough Vitamin K can cause problems. Vitamin K (specifically Vitamin K2) helps get the calcium where it is supposed to go - your bones and teeth. Vitamin K2 rich foods include natto (fermeted soybeans), cheese (particularly Munster, Camembert, Edam, aged Gouda, and cheddar), beef liver, chicken, and butter.

    I am in my sixties and I along with many of my age group have a lot of problems with teeth. Fillings have failed and we have all needed crowns and bridges or have lost teeth. While I do not deny the truth of sugar causing many problems and correlating with general health, I would like to point out two things. In the sixties and seventies dentists only had amalgam and were encouraged to fill teeth, causing huge carvings of the teeth which weakened them. When my children were growing up in the nineties, there was more of an emphasis on preventative dentistry, and the younger generation have far fewer problems in my experience, and they have eaten sweets. My friends have said similar things. While sugar has certainly caused serious health issues to the teeth and the rest of the body, I think that dentistry has also played a part in this.

    @ssp Not using gold ends up costing patients more in the long run. Gold onlays are the most successful treatment of cavities that we have ever devised. Some of them last upwards of 70 years. Sorry, but your composites will deteriorate in the oral environment by then, and ceramic or LiSi or zirconia will chip and break by then--if not themselves, then they will damage other natural teeth they chew against-- and all of them are likely to leak allowing decay to return. That's not preventive, that's "productive" dentistry. You are wrong about the cost of gold, and misinformed about the value that gold provides which the other materials simply cannot. It is physically impossible at this point in time. New technology allows us to scan, design, and mill gold onlays, crowns, and bridges with extreme precision. This produces the most intimate fit of any in dentistry. This is crucial to the durability of the repair. This new technology also allows this product to be brought to market at half the price of the traditional cast gold parts. So yes, most people, if they think about how long they want to keep their teeth, they can afford gold. And you know what? They deserve gold.

    @Easy Gold Crowns sorry, but gold id not affordable for most people and I’ve never known a tooth to all be fixed once, as you age your teeth wear and that goes for the fixed teeth, thus further repairs in the future are usually always needed eventually leading to crowns and other repairs. I know very few people with gold fillings and the material that is is used now for white filings lasts much longer, I have both gold and amalgam fillings, the amalgam fillings have lasted the longest, but I have white fillings that have lasted a long time.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that these things have been known for along time, but there seems to be a lack of communication ,co-operation , and co- ordination among health care professionals.

    A much-needed talk. I take the points made, that healthy teeth are primarily about diet and that Western society has to move away from the highly processed, sugary food which has become endemic. However, genetic differences in teeth need to be recognised. My teeth are 'soft' and particularly susceptible to decay. Early example: I had a root canal at age three due to apple juice and popular processed foods of the time, which in America in the early 80s were rampant and well accepted. My father is a doctor and my mother a nurse, so both were well aware of healthy foods and generally we ate quite well, eating plenty of fruit and vegetables, and were rarely allowed 'junk food'. However, it was difficult to avoid the mainstream offerings. For instance, Honey Nut Cheerios was my favourite breakfast cereal for over a decade - now I'd class it as junk food, at the time it was an acceptable cereal. Throughout my childhood, following that early root canal, I had a cavity at most dental visits. My brother, on the other hand, who ate a similar diet, and in fact, far more sweets and sugary breakfast cereals, has never had a cavity (he just turned 40). My dad has a mouth full of fillings from when he was younger, and his teeth are now breaking down due to all the fillings; my mum has no fillings, she has never had a single cavity. My parents eat a very similar diet so might be expected to have similar dental health. Genetically, I have my father's teeth, which are 'softer' and more prone to decay; my brother has my mother's, which are 'harder' and not at all prone to decay. I thus have to work hard to keep my teeth healthy: eat a wholesome diet with minimal refined sugar, brush assiduously with an electric toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, etc. When I was pregnant with my first child, I developed gum disease. By paying more attention to my teeth (carefully brushing, flossing and using a special mouthwash) when I was pregnant with my second, I managed to avoid it, maintaining healthy teeth and gums throughout. Given my history, my children only drink water and milk, and our family primarily eats wholesome meals made from scratch (we live in the UK), although my kids do have a penchant for sweets. So while I take the point in this talk, a genetic element has to be acknowledged - some people's teeth are just much more predisposed to decay, while others seem to eat vast amounts of sugary foods and never suffer from tooth decay - this latter group need to be studied! What is it in their genetic make-up that protects their teeth so well? Interesting side note, aside from a healthy diet, taking up tea drinking over the last 20 years living in England has also helped to protect my teeth, according to a British dentist.

    This, exactly. I have MCAS and during periods when it's been bad, my teeth literally become so brittle they chip and shatter when they meet each other - at times when the MCAS is in remission, the cavities slow way down, and I have teeth that "merely" require extremely diligent care and attention to diet. I did not eat unusual amounts of sugar growing up, my parents were very health-conscious. They themselves also have very fragile teeth even with a very low sugar diet. On the flip side, I have known multiple people who took appalling care of their teeth and who ate awfully, and who never got a single cavity... I wish dentists were more aware of this.

Sugar consumption should have practically nothing to do with tooth decay since you are eating food that contains sugar, not soaking your teeth in a bath of sugar for bacteria to feed on. If someone eats one piece of fruit than their teeth are already covered with sugar so the sugar consumption is a moot point unless I can be proven otherwise.

I worked in pediatric dentistry for several years and we were rectifying that at the local level but it was slow, but steady. Forging relationships with med docs takes time and effort AND well let’s be honest, Medical and hospital procedures are not known for their efficiency. Dental is run efficiently and this could also be why they don’t combine. Dentist like their independence from the medical bureaucracy.

    What a legend, truly inspirational. I’ve been chasing a “Hollywood” smile for as long as I remember. I’ve had braces for five years and I’m still not satisfied with my smile, so I’m looking to veneers to “perfect” them. Quick warning, those influencer “veneers” with aggressive filing to where the whole mouth is just full of canines, if you’re lost, search it up, those procedures are not of veneers, those are crowns, popularity sky rocketed, largely due to influencer marketing. They’re also considerably cheaper, that’s their USP, but what’s the need for all that filing? Isn’t it cheaper or less hassle for orthodontists to just do the appropriate amount of filing? There’s something deceitfully bad about this practice as well, one being that maintaining those “veneers” is another entirely too costly, life long endeavour with the added benefit of having lost most of your original teeth to that dreadful filing. Many folks who do this are also young, furthering maintenance costs. Will we have the same practitioners advertising reasonably priced aftercare solutions as these “veneers” begin to deteriorate due to wear and tear? Given all this , I’ve always wanted to keep my own teeth; use not so invasive procedures to the aforementioned. That being said, my own teeth aren’t the worse, I rarely need fillings and can only remember one instance of teeth related pains. I would also like to add my sugar consumption is most likely average to maybe high. I don’t do sodas, I eat quite a bit of cereal and an avid coffee drinker, with sugar of course. Let me take a moment, to just shame myself a little bit, I’m from the so called “birthplace of coffee” and struggle to drink it without sugar. As it stands, my braces came off early 2021. I’ve had time to get used to my new smile and sadly I’m still not happy with it. My top teeth, two front ones in particular I’m not a fan of. So I am planning to get more cosmetic orthodontist work in pursuit of this dream smile of mine, I know that is most likely a desire fuelled by an amalgamation of every celebrity/influencer’s well crafted image & highly marketable aesthetics I’ve been sold my entire life. This is coupled with a need to conform to what’s desirable. I want my teeth to be healthy and look good, but I’m not sure if I can give up sugar. Honestly, it’s very sad, I’m willing to part ways with my hard earned cash to achieve a seemingly “good” smile but unable to do the cheaper, saner and far more beneficial act of proactively reducing sugar in my diet. This is insane, I take responsibility on my part, I’m no angel, I’d love to say from now on I’ll do better, but it’s gonna take a while. Also, please remember that if you can go without braces, do so, the aftercare costs associated with maintenance is unreal. If you really want to do it and are in a position to do so, learn from whatever you can take from my experience. It’s taken me a while to be this honest with myself, take what you can apply to your circumstances and save towards real professional orthodontist work. Do not, I repeat Do Not use services like smile direct club, I’m not a dentist or an orthodontist, just a longterm and regular care receiver from each of these professions. Just look up negative coverage of these types of companies before doing anything, also get a consultation from a real professional, ask them if services like smile direct are suitable for you. I know that its in the financial interest of the professionals in the industry to recommend or refer patients to other professional practitioners. But, they’re also obligated to tell you the truth. Be frank with them about your finances or lack there of, if you think it’ll help. I feel that services like smile direct prey on peoples desire to also achieve this dream smile, same one I’ve been chasing, but quicker and cheaper. All that glitters is definitely not gold in this case, you may end up needing urgent dental care because of these smile direct club types, seriously, there’s a class action lawsuit filed against them. Well, this has been a very eventful rant, I’m not being paid to dunk on smile direct or anything. I am just tired of lies, it’s cheaper and healthier to eat less sugar, brush and floss, yet that feels like mopping the ocean, even to me. We’ll try. Good luck to you all.

    @zplitterz Yes, smart comment. Epigenetics typically accounts for three (3) generations. I study nutrition extensively and this is very well known. For example, critical gut health, digestion, mental health, skeletal and muscle development, cancer risk, intelligence, brain development and yes, dental development. Genetics is roughly 20-30% but after that, nutrition and lifestyle make a huge difference. People especially want to avoid ALL sugar (61 names for it) and PROCESSED FOODS (unlike an Avocado, if it has a label, it is processed.) Animals do not readily get cavities. They don't eat SUGAR. Back in the say, they packed whale blubber in sea SALT. Yet no one had hypertension. It wasn't so much the salt as it was the addition of SUGAR. Sugar, in all it's forms is addictive poison that has been unleashed on populations because it is addicting and that leads to eating more, obesity, sickness (a real money maker), cavities and more...none of it good. To your original point, our grandparents ate fairly well. The soil was better and they did not consume nearly the same amount of sugar and processed stuff aka "food." If we are this sick TODAY, imagine how peoples health will be negatively effected three (3) generations from now. It's not going to be pretty.

    It is also related to what the grandparents ate. It filters down in generations. Often I see a grandmother, my own and other's with straight teeth, a wide uncrowded tooth arch pattern. Their kids with kind of straight teeth but starting to crowd and narrowed arch. And the next generation needing braces, or their 12 year molars being pulled because their mouth is so small. As well grandparents diet can influence how efficient the grandchildren's saliva will remineralize the enamel and teeth. This is from Weston A. Price when I read him in 1998. Since then I have been watching everyone's teeth and mouths I know in life. And it seems to mostly anecdotely match up.

    @Cristiana Nicolae I agree that stress is very bad on the body in general but if it killed teeth, I would not have any. Proper oral hygiene is important. Correlation does not equal causation. You likely get very stressed and either ignore your teeth or simply have other things going on. I do not know- talk to a doctor. All I know is just being stressed is not known to make people's teeth rot. Sugary diet is the main cause. Drugs is another big one. Poor general health, combined with stress, lack of sleep + sugar- OK. I would agree with that. Anyway Cristiana, try not to stress anymore over this. You want to have nice teeth to match your long hair. Does that fall out when you are stressed too? I guess not- just your teeth. Sure, everyone is different and maybe the case for you but an N of 1 means very little and what you explained is simply not typical. Cheers!

    @D G I don't expect you to understand just from those few lines which barely summarise what I have noticed. I, however, expect you - since you seem to like scientific method - to not mistrust my own personal observation and experience. Bare in mind that these are facts that I have observed happening with my own body. I have all the interest in the world to keep an eye on it and its good health. My least concern is to impress random people in the KZread comment section. Years ago I was told that it was not scientific for me to to want to have longer and thicker hair because these are things governed by genetics. And besides, why should I even be bothered by such thoughts?! It's useless to even have them! And even when you attain such aim, what's the point?! Long story short, that "chorus" is now mute - my hair now reaches well enough tail bone and new "sprouts" of little hairs appear periodically. Plus, the hair looks and feels healthy. This is just one of the major "unscientific" change I was able to make on myself. Needless to say, I love books, but I trust my body more than books. So when I say that tooth decay is connected to stress it means that tooth decay IS connected to stress. It may not happen with everyone in the same manner, but it does happen to me. Exams, for example, don't last years. They last only a few weeks. Tooth decay doesn't need years of continuous stress to happen. It may very well happen in "waves". After all, we know very well, that when the stress is high, then the bad bacteria in the mouth gets a very friendly environment to grow and flourish into. The powerful they become, the quicker and visible the damage they do. Logically, the opposite is also valable. When stress is low, body gets time and resources to heal and regenerate. Especially during sleep. Something which I am not doing right now, as I am spending my time answering to comments at 00:11 in the night. So now I will go to rest.

I’ve had some of the richest people in the DC metro area in my chair as patients. And I’ve also seen the poorest of the poor. As in homeless off the streets and living in the woods. It’s rare that I see a patient no matter their income or background over the age of 40 with all their teeth. I’ve had patients in their 20’s with almost no teeth in their mouths.

    Great talk, thankyou for sharing such an important message. Unfortunately it's not just white sugar that is the culprit, for fruits are also high sugar and carbohydrates turn to sugar in the body. A diet high in fruits and carbohydrates also damage the teeth. Because we are now able to eat unseasonal fruits all year round we eat fruit in excess which is doing the damage. Long ago eating fruit was a treat, not because it was unaffordable but because it was only available for a short season. Fruit today is also alot sweeter due to modification. It turns out that the best foods for healthy teeth are protein and saturated fats. Makes you think, doesn't it.

    This is what I was wondering. Does this include natural sugar (fruit, honey) or processed such as HFCS. Honey is a miracle food imo with a ton of healing properties, and I believe fruits have also been referred to as elixirs of health and long life. I incorporate them in my diet and hope the more natural source isn’t what she’s referring to but I can’t find a clear answer.

    Long ago, people would "can" fruit, such as peaches, pears, and apricots, in syrup which was almost 100% sugar, so that they could eat fruit throughout the year. Apples and plums (prunes) were often dried, which concentrates the natural sugars, as were grapes (raisins), figs, and dates. Berries, of course, have long been turned into jams or jellies. Eating large amounts of cane sugar is not really new. What is new is the ubiquity of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), which is the real culprit in declining oral health and increasing obesity. Curiously, I didn't hear her mention it.

    Tooth decay is damage to a tooth's surface, or enamel. It happens when bacteria in your mouth make acids that attack the enamel. Sugar fuels this process. Therefore, when dealing with tooth decay the damage starts from the outside in…not the other way around. However, oral and systemic diseases can be linked. (Ex: uncontrolled diabetes/diet can contribute to uncontrolled periodontal disease which can harm the gum and bone that support the teeth).

    I don't think any rational person expects flouride alone to solve the problem of tooth decay. Nor is it breaking news that sugar increases the bacteria in the mouth that cause tooth decay. Keeping one's teeth clean is and always has been important. What we really need is universal access to medical care that includes dental care, vision care, and hearing aids. Why does the insurance industry think that teeth, eyes, and ears are luxury add-ons? We also need universal access to quality food, real food, not processed junk. "Food deserts" condemn people in poverty to the poorest diets of all. We also need health education to confront the common misconception that decay in a child's baby teeth don't matter because they'll fall out.

    Good question!!! For tooth decay to happen you need 3 essential elements: teeth, sugar, and bacteria. If you remove one of these essential elements, tooth decay is not possible. Soaking teeth in a sugary solution without bacteria will not lead to the collapse of the enamel. In the mouth there is a large number of bacteria, some of them thriving on sugar. When these bacteria have access to sugar, they turn it into acid. It is the acid that breaks down the enamel. The problem is that the more sugar we eat/drink, the more of these harmful bacteria we have in our mouth. This is a well known scientific fact. What is not so well known is the enormous amount of sugar we unknowingly consume today as there is hidden sugar in almost all processed foods.

    What you report here is concerning. When it comes to oral health, it is important that your oral health is good before you get pregnant. Once pregnant, maintaining good oral health is essential for you and your baby. Routine visits such as exams and cleaning should continue during the pregnancy. Small fillings and even simple extractions can safely be done. Best time for dental visits is during the middle and early third trimester during which you are usually beyond morning nausea and not yet so big to make the visit uncomfortable. If you need dental work during the third trimester, you shouldn’t lie flat on your back. You should have your right hip slightly elevated as to not put too much pressure (from the baby in your uterus) on your vena cava.
