Remineralizing Teeth From Within
By Atom Bergstrom
Re: Are minerals important to the teeth?
Yes, No, Maybe.
Holding minerals in your mouth doesn’t do diddly-squat except kill mouth bugs, good ones and bad.
Does a fetus get its minerals from the amniotic fluid surrounding it?
Or does a fetus get its minerals via the umbilicus?
Does a tooth get its minerals from the fluids in the mouth?
Or does a tooth get its minerals from the submaxillary and parotid glands?
In case teeth really can be remineralized from the oral-cavity side of the enamel, “take the waters” by holding mineral spring water in your mouth.
Or, maybe hold T.J. Clark’s “Legendary Colloidal Mineral Formula” in your mouth. It’s supposed to contain “up to 72 naturally occurring mineral and trace elements.”
Ever look up “mineralize” in the dictionary?
It means to “convert organic matter wholly or partly into a mineral or inorganic material or structure.”
Does that mean dentists and toothpaste companies have dictionaries with reverse definitions?
Do their dictionaries say, “convert inorganic matter wholly or partly into a mineral or organic material or structure.”
Can you remineralize a tin can at 98.6° Fahrenheit by filling it with mineral spring water?
Can silica be taken directly into the teeth from toothpaste?
Silica is silicon dioxide — sand.
Why not just go to the beach and fill your mouth with sand?
Oh, you say the silica in toothpaste is different than the silica at the beach?
You’re right. The silica in toothpaste is made into a compound found in quartz or flint (and sometimes really sand).
It’s precipitated silica, the same silicate salt found in automobile tires and shoe soles.
Toothpaste silica is hydrated silica, an abrasive used to whiten the teeth, and ground quartz is an excellent abrasive.
But don’t abrasives “sandblast” the teeth, and wear them away?
Yes, they do,
Dr. John Hefferren & Dr. Na Li (“Dentifrice Abrasives: Heroes or Villains?,” 2008) wrote …
“Silicas are one of many products in the hydrated silica family, available in many particle sizes and characteristics. Some silicas mechanically clean the teeth, while other silicas can thicken the toothpaste. In toothpaste, silicas are chemically inert. They absorb fewer flavors and functional additives. As a result, they are chemically compatible with such additives as soluble fluorides.”
Many dentists recommend glycerine because it “penetrates biofilm quickly and eliminates bacterial colonies.”
What could possibly be wrong with a fatty acid-binding substance that’s a major component of triglycerides (glycerine combined with three fatty acids)?
Ten drops of glycerine three times a day for a month or more has dropped cholesterol values from 300 to 170.
Side effects? Unfortunately, yes.
And glycerine is widely used to preserve viruses in tissues and vaccines.
Glycerine-loading before a bodybuilding competition might not be a good idea.

And what do super-capillaries have to do with long-lasting teeth?
