After years of trial and error my son’s brown severely decayed teeth have become tooth colored again in less than 2 months! Here’s how we did it.
My son started having browning on his teeth around 3 years old, and after many doctors, procedures and tears his situation became much worse, experiencing infection, severe decay, very deep cavities and chunks of teeth falling out. Years of researching have finally paid off. See the bottom of this post for the more detailed history.
I have detailed below the protocol he has been following for the past year with no results. Once we added Vitamin C his teeth healed in less than 2 months. I can not say if the Vitamin C alone would heal teeth, instead I believe the Vitamin C is a key factor, which allowed for his body to utilize everything else he is using.
The protocol the he follows:
1,000 mg Lipo-Spheric Vitamin C, 1 a day in the morning with fresh homemade orange juice, mixed in a blender, it’s very thick and only a blender can break it up, it also made it frothy. This type of vitamin C we used for the first week when we started 2 months ago, to bring his levels up and fast. He hasn’t taken it since, although we will certainly give it to him again as needed, especially if he gets any sort of illness. I highly recommend you research the healing effects of Vitamin C, I’ll put up a post one day soon.
2,000-5,000 mg of Vitamin C – L-ascorbic acid, we use Bluebonnet Vitamin C 1000 mg Vegetable Capsules and Natural Factors Vitamin C 500 mg chewables.
Toothpaste & Rinse: Replace toothpaste with 2% Lugol’s Iodine (Iodine from the store is not the same, do not use regular iodine), put 2-3 drops on the toothbrush and brush teeth as usual. We also mix distilled water with a drop of iodine for him to rinse his mouth with. Rinse, Swish and Spit then Rinse, Swish and Swallow
Floss: With children it can be difficult to get them using regular floss, so we buy dental picks, Use at each brushing
NOTE: as per the holistic dentist, do not use floss with fluoride on it. The dollar store usually has these. Floss is best to use before brushing, or do a quick brushing with water to brush away any dislodged food.
Coconut Oil: Rinse and or Brush with natural coconut oil. This is a natural oral disinfectant that can help clean the mouth without alcohol or toxins. It also has a pleasant tastes. Oil Pulling (aka swishing) for 15-20 min will disinfect the whole mouth.
NOTE: I do the oil pulling once in a while, however my son never has, it made him gag the time we tried, instead we put some mixed with Olive Gold O3 – Ozonated Olive Oil Super Oxygen and Xlear Spray Rain Oral Mist Spray
on a cotton swab and he puts it in the areas of the decay and then all around the mouth.
Ozonated Water or Oil (O3): Ozone is known for it’s power in killing bacteria, viruses and fungi, as well for stimulating healing. Ozonated water is more economical but holds the O3 for shorter time. Ozonated Oils can retain the O3 gas much longer. See coconut oil above for how we use this.
We use: Olive Gold O3 Skin Care Lotion – Ozonated Olive Oil Super Oxygen (it can be used internally and externally)
We have tried: Ozene Skin Cream and Deodorant by Premier Research Labs and PurO3 Fully Ozonated Olive Oil
Both of these he gags on, so we use it for skin healing and care.
MI Paste: Is a topical product that introduces minerals to the oral cavity and promotes absorption. It can greatly reduce sensitivity to hot and cold or after whitening. MI Paste can also promote Re-mineralization of tooth structure. Use a pea sized amount and apply to teeth with a finger or tooth brush.
NOTE: I’ve found most dentists sell this, which is a plus if you have an HSA account.
Multi Vitamin: Metagenics – Multi-Min Chelate: Minerals are essential for good overall and oral health. Today’s food chain simply cannot provide enough of what the body needs. This supplement has Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc and other minerals bonded with Amino Acids to aide in absorption. This has MANY health benefits including Re-mineralization of tooth structure as well as reducing clenching and grinding.
NOTE: My son switched to this multi – MegaFood Kids One Daily Tablets
Probiotics: We use this probitotic regularly (daily or every other day), and when needed a high dose one for a week.
Regular: MegaFood Kids N’ Us MegaFlora Tablets
High Dose: Ortho Molecular Products – PRObiotic 225 billion CFU
Kombucha: About the only way I can get kombucha into my son is in a smoothie or ice pop. We make our own kombucha at home, more info on that in a later post. He gets kombucha in some form at least once a week.
E3Live Brain On: E3 Live is an all-organic superfood. It is 100% Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) wild-harvested from Klamath Lake in Oregon, USA. This nutrient dense superfood contains over 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids. Our plant-based superfood is non-GMO, vegan and a rich source of chlorophyll.
He gets a serving of this 1-2 times a week in a smoothie.
The following is additional recommendations that he doesn’t do, or only did for a short period of time.
Colloidal Silver: Colloidal silver can be used as a mouthwash to help prevent the buildup of plaque which leads to cavities and gum disease. And it can be used to stop painful tooth infections dead in their tracks if you get to them soon enough. Sovereign Silver Fine Mist
Butter Oil / Fermented Cod Liver Oil: Both are recommended by the Weston Price foundation. A friend gave me some to try, I had a hard time getting my son to take it. VEGAN alternative: Source Naturals Flax Seed-Primrose Oil as suggested by a few doctors.
Vitamin D: Ortho Molecular Liquid Vitamin D3 with K2, we live in Florida so I only give him a drop of this daily when he hasn’t had much sun exposure.
The dentist recommends following the Standard Process Purification Program long term. This program can be adapted to any life style or diet, such as Paleo, Vegan, etc.
My son’s diet: Organic, Gluten Free, no food coloring, no artificial anything, minimal natural sugars, and pretty much everything made from scratch.
NAET – A natural allergy elimination technique, we have used NAET to find out what his allergies are and “clear” them.
My son was breastfed, and when he started eating food he ate a clean organic vegan diet, mostly raw. By about 3 years he started to have some browning on his top front teeth. Unable to find a pediatric holistic dentist I took him to a highly recommended local pediatric dentist. What came after was nothing short of heartache. My little boy who had never had so much as an over the counter medication was now going to be put under anesthesia to have dental work done on 8 teeth. We did everything the dentist told us, brushing, flossing, MiPaste, to keep his teeth clean and healthy, but one year later they wanted to do work on 8 teeth again! I refused to have him put under anesthesia again and the dentist convinced me that putting him in a papoose would be the best way to fix his teeth since he wouldn’t sit still. 10 minutes in they decided to stop and bring me to see him (parents aren’t allowed in the room). I cried, it was so sad to see him in this straight jacket – yes that is what a papoose is, even though they try to convince parents otherwise, struggling to get out, 5 minutes later, and no procedure done he was in my arms and we headed home. I spent the next two years researching and praying for answers. He was traumatized and it took me that long to get him back to see a dentist, actually a bump on his gums is what got him back to the dentist. This time we went to another dentist about an hour away. While this dentist wasn’t holistic, she was known for putting children at ease, and it worked. My son went through the exam without any issues, as did my younger son. The dentist sat me down and knowing his diet was puzzled as to why his teeth had such severe decay and told me he has an abscess (which was wrong). The dentist sent us on our way with a prescription for antibiotics, a surgery date and a coupon for free ice cream… WHAT?!?!?! This dentist required a hospital stay for major dental work as she didn’t have the facilities, and the bill was getting up around $20,000, with no guarantee that it wouldn’t go higher. I didn’t go through with it and soon after found a holistic dentist in Miami, Dr. Ted Hermann @ Assure a Smile. He told me that my son did not have an abscess, instead it was inflammation from 2 growing adult teeth rubbing against each other under the gums and that it would heal on it’s own as they grew in, and assured me his diet was not the major culprit, but could use a little tweaking. He told me his body was not getting the nutrition it needed and the teeth suffered, most likely from an allergy. He put my son on a protocol, which we followed for a year with no change. Then less than 2 months ago we added Vitamin C to that protocol that changed his brown decaying teeth to tooth color. The holes are still in his teeth, however only the baby teeth have decay, the adult teeth are fine, so as per the dentist advice he will not have anything done to those teeth unless he has pain or the situation gets worse.
