My family has bad teeth. My grandfather had false teeth by age 30. So did my uncle. And so did his son my cousin. All never did drugs. I'm 28 and have three pulled already and needing one pulled right now. I have did plenty of drugs. Well lots. No meth though. I haven't seen a dentist in about 12 years except for extractions. I do brush all the time though. Always have. But I'll for one say teeth pain is some of the worst shit to go through. And ppl can act like they know that pain but until you get it you won't know. I had compound shattered my tib/fib a few years ago in a motorcycle accident and was askin for pain meds the next day for my tooth. Shit was bangin. That shit hurt worse than my leg. Got it pulled as soon as they would let me. Fuck tooth pain.

Baking soda + water makes a nice, lightweight toothpaste. Its cheap, you can find it anywhere and it has multiple uses as you can use it to deodorize boots, bags, sleeping bags etc. You can use it as a soap alternative as well. I also read about someone cleaning staph infections with it here on StP.

Also, if you have a cavity and can't get to or afford a dentist you can melt a bit of wax and jam it up in the hole to protect the sensitive exposed nerves. I've got a cracked wisdom tooth with a glob of wax in it right now. Used to be a pain just drinking cold water or smoking but the wax really helps.

I have never had a cavity filled in my life n i brush about 1 a week. But i have had cavities that fill in themselves. I eat lots of veggies too. Heard u should never brush ur teeth after eating acidic foods like citrus or coffee wears the enamel out..

those new 'wisps' disposable brushes are pretty sweet. i got a pack of 4 for a $1 and comes with paste. i reuse them and they hold up pretty well with a trial size tooth paste. ultralight weight too.

Ah, this is for sure my worst fears as I get older; I mouth fool of foul looking, rotten teeth.

There's no rhyme or reason here either, I know cats that never brush thier teeth and their teeth are pearls, I look at a piece of candy and get a cavity.

Necro'ing this thread but I find that using paracord to floss goes a long way towards keeping my teeth happy (mostly). Take a piece of paracord, cut it so that you can rip out the inner strands. Floss normally. You can reuse the strand if you want but that seems kind of counterproductive. Hydrogen peroxide, like the other person mentioned, is great and stupidly cheap. It's 88 cents a bottle at the local food store.

Just my thoughts.

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
Um... Fluoride? Laziness? Every couple days I do a really intense brush and scrape. Some days I do brush more than others. Shut, this thread makes me want to brush right now B-)

you can get free or very cheap dental care at a dental collage. Here in Omaha we have the Creighton school of Dentistry. you are worked on by students, but they are overseen by actual Dentists. they seen to like really fucked up teeth. it would be worth checking into for those of you with bad or hurting teeth.

yeah dude who had the wax idea is on the right track. i wouldn't melt candle wax or anything but they sell the wax stuff for braces for like a dollar most places. comes in a little case and there's 7 or 8 strips of soft, pliable wax. it's used to put on the sharp edges of braces so they don't cut up your mouth but i use it to shove into the holes in my teeth and it works great. no pain, no cutting my goddamn tongue on them.

I have religiously brushed/flossed my teeth throughout my life. Despite this, I end up with at least three cavities per year, and am developing receeding gums. On top of that, I spent years on antibiotics as a child that resulted in my enamel never forming properly in the first place, so ever since my adult teeth have grown in, it has been a downhill battle with keeping them decent (several already rotting at 23 years old). Just saying: neglect is not always the cause of crummy teeth.

If you have small cavities its possible for them to fill in themselves with good diet. I have indents in my teeth where cavities have been filled in with enamel. Sugars are really bad for your teeth.

Shit I never knew that much, i knew bout the whole sugars being bad... but never them filling themselves... Like what's the diet and shit?

My teeth are fucked. Had some dental hygenist at a show say i needed a few pulled or i could end up with some blood infection... But most of em arent that bad, itd be cool to learn how to fix em a more proper ay than drill n fill when I get the mo.ey

Just eat really healthy lots of greens but don't over do really sugary fruits. You can get this spicey seasoning at mexican grocery stores that makes eating fruits and veggies a lot easier. Not to mention it will make you a lot healthier in general. Cutting out breads is good too because not only the sugar but gluten is bad for your teeth. You may not be able to save the really bad ones but you will probably help prevent blood poisoning. Also people that get halitosis like their breath always smells bad even after they brush their teeth is from lack of chlorophyll which you get from greens like kale. Vinegar and nutritional. Yeast also make salads good.

Ive been meaning to add my 2 cents here, but its a little hard from the mobile.

There was a popular study done by Dr Weston Price, which basically validated what Fox Spirit said.

Said that with proper diet, cavities, even the deep ones, can heal themselves. Basically, eat an alkaline diet of mostly veggies, limit sugars and starches, and avoid any type of seed, such as nuts and legumes. He said food in seed form(such as the nuts and legumes) have an anti-nutrient called phytic acid that prevents your body from utilizing certain vitamins and minerals, like calcium and phosphorus that help rebuild teeth.

Everyone (especially those like us that mostly dont have health insurance) should check out the research he did. Will change your understanding of how teeth and cavities work.

Yea I didn't know about that study but I figured it out from experience. I had a cavity and I just started eating really healthy and it filled in with enamel. there's still a little hole where the cavity was. I'm also really into diet and what effects you like what does what for your body herbalism etc. Doctors dentists etc don't want you to know about things like that. They just want to perform an expensive operation or give you expensive meds. Sometimes tho for severe things its good to have a doctor you just gotta be weary of em. I can think of a lot of diseases that can be cured with a good diet and herbs, cancer being one of them.

If I had one more freight hop left in me, maybe two, I would take an NS 27A (auto rack) to Macon, get shuttled to Warner Robins to visit my friends since I haven't seen them for quite a while, then head back to Macon. Next up, maybe I would stay put under a skirted piggyback heading southbound to Jacksonville just to explore the Macon/Valdosta districts.
