Tooth decay is caused by a deficiency of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the body needed to build healthy teeth. “Daily, the calcium and phosphate of the enamel is migrating out of the teeth to the bones, heart, brain and other places where it is needed. This is called by dentists demineralization.”
Re-enamelization (teeth growing back) of enamel requires several factors, including enough minerals such as calcium, phosphate, magnesium, and the variety of enzymes needed to regrow tooth enamel such as adenosine diphophatase.
Dr. Weston Price was a dentist who traveled around the world in the 1930’s and 1940’s studying the diet’s of primitive people’s isolated from the modern world. He found that he could eliminate or greatly reduce bad bacteria’s in the mouth which fuel the tooth degeneration process through diet. “These data are typical of clinical cases in which dental caries has been reduced apparently to zero, as indicated by both x-ray and instrumental examination.”
