Hydrogen peroxide is great and cheap teeth whitening and cavity fixer in the future, atleast for me, it has reversed 3 of my cavities and i did not need fillings, yes this has been confirmed by my dentist ha.

I have been plaged by tooth aches & abcesses on my back molar for over a year that broke in half a few months ago but was still firmly planted in i just ripped it out by hand & have been digging rotted teeth pices out for days. It is such a relief.

Those portable tooth brushes come quite in handy.
Just go in and talk to a dentist. I'm sure most of them will be willing to give you a free toothbrush/paste and floss if you ask.

I see a youth biased trend here. I have goten free teeth cleaning supplies & actually posted a thread about it many years ago. We all know the importance of oral hygiene but the reality is that routine dental care & insurance is out of most of our grasp here. I am actually a clean freak & have been religious with brushing atleast twice a day for about 30 years no matter where or what I am doing. I do gargle with warm salt water (easily obtained most everywhere for free), peroxide or mouthwash depending what I have. The problem is that most responders baby teeth were still in their mouths 15 years ago so they naively think they are on the right track. Since they are probably still on mommie/daddies dental plan from work they should take advantage & get as much done now! Unless regular cleanups & timely fillings & extractions are done by the time you are in your 30s you will be missing teeth & or needing false teeth as well. Besides the obvious of choices of food & drinks its also environmental. If your out on the road/street you are probably brushing here & there but your probably eating poorly, drinking heavily & under the influences of other chemicals that rot your teeth. The problem with teeth is you only get 2 shots & the first one doesnt count since your a little kid. I believe that ones oral healthcare is interconnected to ones whole well being. Complete dental services should be fully integrated into medicaid & other medical insurances so that the dentist can give the best care available without patients priceshopping for services instead of on the recomendation of a trusted dentist. It makes me sick that dentists all require multiple visits to overcharge patients instead of being efficient in there practices by doing more work in fewer visits. When you go to a medical Doc they usually have a specific plan to treat your illness, you have the option to seek a second opinion elsewhere or accept their treatment plan. The nature of this process in a dental clinic equates esthetics to medical need. Sure its nice to have good teeth to look at but it goes much deeper. Medicaid is covering some dental care now if you got state insurance, more for children but is limited after age 21. Then if there is a problem(with adults) medicaid will only pay for extraction. This is the most cost effective method & the only way currrently that the government can control spending; if it was up to the dentists they would just continue to perform inneficient & or unecesary procedures to create revenue. The reality of medicaid is dentists will often say that they dont allow new patients or make new patient appointments 4 months out to disuade medicaid patients into accepting there bad teeth & or paying cash to get an earlier visit. This is discrimination! Why is a poor persons teeth, health or life less important than some fatcat? We need universal free health/dental care for all in the US regardless of age & or income.

I wonder WHY people do not brush their teeth?
It is not rocket science to brush your teeth one or two times a day, is it?
WHY
Not everyone is brought up the same. Personally my whole childhood consisted of my drinking nothing but soda pop and eating more candy then real food and my parents were rarely around. I can't remember being told I had to brush my teeth by my mom ever. Which because of not caring about my teeth until i was older and never having parents who cared enough to take me to a dentist my teeth are pretty fried. That being said for others that may have teeth issues you should check out this site. http://www.adcfmom.org/

I've always brushed my teeth twice a day, and floss regularly specially after i eat meaty foods. I've had 3 root canals, 2 false replacement crowns, a cavity in about every chewing teeth i have.

My brother has never had a cavity, ever. I think its in you DNA. Of course soda pop and candy helps deterioration, so does crystal meth.

Why are you searching blame at something else then yourself?
I have been drinking lots of soda and eating more candy then real food myself.
However I have a brain in my head and I brush my teeth every day because I know otherwise I will be fucked.
You are not a kid now, are you? So what is in your way to brush NOW one or two times a day your fucking teeth?

Yea your a idiot... I didn't say I dont brush my teeth now did I? but I was probably 14-15 before I cared to brush my teeth, I lived in a back woods town where their was no free dentalcare or not that I knew about and by that time my teeth were rotted out. For your info I do brush and floss every day but it doesn't change the fact that the damage done to my teeth wont go away I've went to a few of those places like I listed in that link and ive had a few cavities fixed however most of my teeth are so fucked up they just wanted to pull them all which i rather have nasty stubs i can chew with then no teeth at all. An just because you brush doesn't mean if you already have damaged teeth they dont progressively still get worse, because even though I brush my teeth they still look 10 times worse 10 years later.

i heard FL is good for free denal care.
if it is then my father's even more of a retard than i thought cos he's been having some serious trouble paying for his teethcare.
and i've never been much of a brusher, i do mouthwash when its available and when i left home i had some baking soda t mix up with salt and hot water but that's long gone

some people(myself included) just dont buy into it. naturalism/primitivism, i and many others just want t get back to our roots. and the scientific evidence is quite divided on fluoride anyway, some say its terrible for your teeth and obviously some say the opposite. some of us just arent so quick to swallow what mommy told us and choose to do things differently.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
