To begin with I'd highly reco a holistic dentist over any ordinary dentist, and follow their reco. I had a decent dentist but made uninformed choices, root canals came out, so did the leaking amalgams....


You probably like your dentist as I did, but after not getting any more free dental as a senior , I finally had to get another as my stroke dictated AND retired holistic dental friend reco'd AND all the bad stuff is out.
I had EDTA therapy to my veins instead of blood thinners, iv at 1st, then in capsules, and it worked, no side effects either.



BUT not to be a wet blanket but a closer look at your diet is needed [ westonaprice.org/wp-content/uploads/MainBrochure.pdf ] simply copy/paste into browser and go..I'm just gonna let you read, then decide what you can do or are willing to do......


Best wishes

Yes, floss.
the damage occured the past few years while not taking care of my teeth properly. i only just started doing it recently since i got these expensive electronic toothbrushes. i havent been pressing down too hard while cleaning, i just let the brush head do the work one tooth at a time for 2 minutes as instructions recommended,

is it possible to brush too much? ive been cleaning upwards to 5,6 times a day after everytime i consume any nonwater beverage or food.

well i have adjusted my diet for the sake of loosing weight, but it is seemingly next to impossible for someone like me with my body mass to make and stick with a drastic change. i have a big body that craves carbs, so its been changes little by little, and so far my diet has rewarded me with 60lb loss this past 6 months, and the loss has come to a hault and its because i need to get more exercise. i only honestly eat 2 meals a day but they are larger than normal mostly consisting of chicken, but its of the fried variety lol. i only drink sweet tea, which ik is the most harmful thing i consume atm but i ve been brushing immediately after drinking a cup of it. i do drink lots of water too.

im going to cut down on my portions at meal time once after going grocery shopping next time. i dont get any exercise at work, it all working around and under vehicles. im just too sore after work to do anything....

Sounds obsessive OP. None of this is going to make up for lost time you know. The past is the past.

? ive been cleaning upwards to 5,6 times a day after everytime i consume any nonwater beverage or food.
Yes, it's possible to brush too much. You are removing soft plaque from your teeth, not cement. It only takes a light hand to remove it.

I don't know why you say the damage is from not taking care of your teeth properly in the past; the damage you're referring to happened because you were brushing too hard. You've overdone it in the past, and you're overdoing it again now.

You seem to get obsessive about cleaning your teeth. Give them a break.

follow up:

my teeth are now very white from regular brushing after every meal and before bed. 3 of my teeth however now have exposed bottoms due to some of my gums dissappearing revealing the insides of the bottoms of those teeth. i believe this has come from flossing too much. ive only flossed after meals. my gums look to be in great health so it confuses me why some of the gum has dissappeared and am worried about rotting of those 3 teeth with exposed bottoms.

i just today bought both oral b cross action brushheads, and the heads for gentle gum cleaning. costed me $72 for each 3 pack of these brush heads lol very expensive ide say but they are very comfortable cleanings.

No, that isn't caused by flossing.

This happened only after I started cleaning regularly.

Is there anything a dentist can do to fix this problem? I have an appointment to get a couple fillings next month. I wonder if I address this if these gaps exposing the insides of the bottoms of my teeth.

I can take pics to show what I am talking about. Maybe yall can give me advice.

To me, it sounds like maybe your excessive brushing (my opinion based on previous posts) may have cause what is called an abrasion. You can read about them here: https://www.dentalhealth.ie/dentalhe...toothwear.html


The can be filled in easily.


This was mentioned to you before by another poster upthread. Get them taken care of.
