Six new cavities, tons of tartar and plaque i have never had before

After one year

They say it is from radiation and dry mouth meds give me

Wow...i have to adjust my budget

Bummer... Dry mouth really will do that to you. I know a lot of Sjogren's patients have trouble with cavities. Thankfully, my mouth has never been extremely dry.

It's always something, isn't it?

I developed a lot of tartar too & my dentist said it was from all the ABX.

So, I started brushing my teeth with baking soda daily & now no more tarter & my teeth feel sparkly clean.

I have told others & they thank me afterwards after they see the difference. I have been doing this for over a year now & my mom had been doing it for decades already.

Put one teaspoon of dry baking soda in your mouth & then in your hand cup a very small amount of water to sip in your mouth. Make a paste in your mouth by swashing it around & start brushing.

I also use it as a mouthwash too.

Won't the baking soda erode the enamel? That's what I've heard. I use a toothpaste that contains baking soda but I think it's pretty gentle.

My close friend just said the same thing about baking soda

She also said oil pulling with coconut oil helps

I hope i can be really consistant about both

I can vouch for the oil-pulling. Works great.
