They would say...
Clean and maintain us properly and regularly...
Eat a healthy, natural diet...
Stop consuming sugar!!!!!!
Use Xylitol -
If you smoke they would say...
If you can't, at least take plenty of vitamin C (diet/supplement)
Vitamin C is vital for healthy teeth and gums. Every time you smoke a cigarette it depletes 25mg of vitamin C from your body. That may not sound like a lot, but average intake of vitamin C is only around 60 - 100 mg daily. (This is chiefly why smokers more often than not have loose or missing teeth.)
Your teeth might also advise you to consider taking a CoQ10 supplement.
'Diseased gum tissue has significantly lower levels of CoQ10 than healthy gum tissue in the same person. Combining CoQ10 supplements with regular dental hygiene treatments may help to reduce bad breath and help stop receding gums in their tracks'

Teeth are the begining of more then many people realize. Here is a bit from a recent newsletter all about the relationship of teeth and your whole body I sent out:
"Experts say a vital relationship exists between your teeth and your sense organs, joints, spinal segments, vertebrae, organs and endocrine glands. Oral acupuncture points are related with the system of acupuncture meridians, or 'energy highways'. When a particular acupuncture meridian becomes stressed, the corresponding oral acupuncture point(s) become sensitive to localized pressure.
Your teeth aren't just your teeth.
Look at the tooth in a specific region or area of the chart, not just the tooth itself. For example the lower first molar is connected to the stomach meridian. If it is the right molar the pancreas can be affected. The left molar could have an influence on the spleen.
So how does the infection of a tooth, which included the gum and bone around the tooth, affect the organ? Visualize this connection as an electrical circuit in your house.
With infection there is a disturbance in the energy or electrical circuit. The result is a pain in the tooth or a problem in the corresponding organ. If the circuitry is overloaded, the fuse gets blown. If it is not the fuse your electrician has to look further, the same is true with your dentist."
I try to take good care of my teeth, brushing my teeth/gums and flossing as I heard that was the most important thing to do to maintain a healthy mouth. I use ordinary toothpaste but am considering switching to a fluoride free one, however I find the fluoride debate so confusing!
Re fluoride: They've made it confusing but it isn't! The early tests that showed, correctly, that flouoride helped protect against dental caries etc. involved calcium fluoride.
The type of fluoride added to our drinking water is sodium fluoride, not the same thing!
Incredibly, before it assumed its role as compulsary addition to the public water supply, sodium fluoride was used commercially as a rat and cockroach poison....
They would also say don't forget to get me checked professionally just to make sure all is well..but I do wonder if they would request a different kind of tooth cleaning product besides the toothpaste and mouthwash that is found in stores --anyone use the healthstore brands?

One of mine IS talking today, quite loudly. I know I need to get it fixed, but with no dental insurance and no money it is difficult. The clinic I go to takes 3 months to get an appointment!
