When visiting the dentist, you most likely will ask or be told how to prevent cavities. Chances are your dentist will give you a new toothbrush or some new special toothpaste. You’ll be warned to brush after every meal and told to avoid all sweets, making your idea of perfect teeth become an increasingly out of reach goal. You might even be told to drink plenty of milk or take calcium supplements to make sure you receive enough calcium in your diet. Calcium has been long known for its supposed tooth-hardening properties.
Your dentist is doing what he can to help you create preventative measures, at least to the best of his knowledge. Undoubtedly, your orthodontist is aware that bacteria from unremoved food particles and sugar byproducts produce lactic acid, which dissolves calcium in the protective enamel layer of your teeth. They also know the pain involved when decay spreads to your sensitive pulp tissue. This is all while ignoring (or unbeknownst) that milk is recognized to be one of the greatest producers of lactic acid than any other food.
Not discrediting your family dentist or his knowledge but recent studies may be needed to be added to his repertoire. One new scientific finding is blowing preconceived notions out of the water. Magnesium has now been established as the mineral that forms hard teeth enamel that resists decay. And no matter how much calcium you take, without magnesium only soft enamel can be formed. If too soft the enamel will lack sufficient resistance to the acids of decay.
For years, it was believed that high intakes of calcium and phosphorus inhibited decay by the strengthening the enamel. Recent evidence, however, indicates that an increase in these two elements is useless unless we increase our magnesium intake at the same time. It has also been observed that dental structures beneath the surface can dissolve when additional amounts of calcium and phosphorus diffuse through the enamel at different rates. Thus milk, or dairy, poor in magnesium, but high in the other two elements, not only interferes with magnesium metabolism but also antagonizes the mineral responsible for decay prevention.
In many studies ranging from 200 patients being different minerals to find which one is most beneficial; magnesium was found to be the most helpful in strengthening teeth. Also, in a strange case study in Deaf Smith County, Texas had much lower incidences of tooth decay and faster healing of broken bones that baffled local doctors. The cause was found to be extremely high levels of magnesium in the water supply. The occurrences in Texas happened in 1958, and unfortunately abruptly stopped. Why you ask? Because the magnesium was diluted and over farmed from the soil due to Cattle Farm Feed Crops.
So how do you reap the benefits that those lucky Texans received in the late 50’s? With Transdermal Magnesium. Many studies have debunked the use of oral magnesium supplements. It passes straight through the body with a very low retention rate due to the liver and kidneys filtration of Magnesium.
When applying Magnesium Transdermally (on the skin) the Magnesium Chloride (Dead Sea Salts) adhere to the blood stream at an 80% absorption rate, beating out the 30% absorption rate of oral supplementation by more than double. The Dead Sea Magnesium the courses through your blood to your whole body and, you guessed it, gums.
However, swishing Magnesium Oil in your mouth is the most beneficial practice for your teeth and gums. Simply taking a thimble full of Dead Sea Magnesium Oil and swishing for 30 seconds to a minute will leave lasting results you can see in only a few days. Do be very careful not to swallow, magnesium chloride is not safe for ingestion, so make sure to wash your mouth clear with water after swishing.
