If anyone knows other reasons for tooth decay, please let us know.
Ok i understand your opinion is influeneced by another man's theory.
Let's talk about facts. True sugar can cause decay, but there are other elements that cause decay as well. For instance Tumors in the mouth. I have mentioned before i have a suspicious very solid growth under my tounge. It is the size of a seedless grape, but more oval in shape. Also, my teeth began RAPIDLY DECAYING some time after the downstairs bathroom celling caved due to a water leak.there was NO sign of mold, only leaking water... Look closely at the time line....2006 celling caves....I go in for routine 6 month cleaning in 2007 formation of a cavity on molar, but nothing too severe to have to fill at that time...fast foward 6 months later sometime in 2008.....4 cavities...i have medical and during this time didn't have dental...so EVERYTHING IS OUT OF POCKET..SO, OF COURSE HE TAKES CARE OF THE MOST SEVERE DECAY FIRST.(ROOT CANAL).OK done. Come back because Teeth are bothering me...Now cavities are bigger than before in just 3 month time. The three i didn't have filled, then I began to grow another cavity in between my two front teeth. Ok so i got the one in between my teeth filled b/c ewwwww when i smile. I save up to get the others taken care of......one of the decaying molar chips off BADLY...so ANOTHER ROOT CANAL ANOTHER 900 PLUS DOLLARS....COULDN'T AFFORD IT SO KEEP SAVING...IT FINALLY BROKE ALL THE WAY OFF. ONLY THING LEFT WAS THE "black part of the root. If I remember correctly "removal of residual tooth root". I can not remember what all i had in 2008 the rest of the time. I will tell you 2009 was my WORST YEAR. Particularly January and Feb. I was in soooo much pain all I could do was drool....literally.I don't like taking painkillers b/c the possibility of addiction and they make me feel fuzzy in thinking.Feb. 2009 i had a root canal, 3 fillings on 3 of my front teeth,and 2 removal of reidual tooth root removed on my molars, then on tooth 15 (i think) there was sooo much decay when he cleaned it and all there wasn't enough toth ,only about 1mm a slither...,so he had to do a post pin? Something like that and build a "tooth" around that..It's funny because every tooth or molar that broke off is always black or deep dark brown on the gums...even after the tooth is gone. I can upload pic if you like. I am sure you don't want to be grossed out tonight. I will save you the pain unless you ask. So, i have a feeling it has something to do with mold. The bedroom adjacent to the bathroom with the damaged celling now has greenish drk grey stain on the celling and it's a little "swollen". I don't sleep in that room, but i think that rom is below mine. The bathroom cellng is fixed now, but who's to say the mold hasn't gone into the walls?
I now only have 19 (not counting the broken ones down to the gum) teeth in my mouth. Don't respond sugar I vely eat...I eat less sugar now than before all this happend. I brush twice daily and lead a VERY active lifestyle...
I am soon going to the dentist for the growth under my tounge soon.I have dental insurance now, but I have to do the long "wait" before I reap any benefits...So until 6-12 months everthing is still out of pocket. Sorry for the long post. Sometimes...Truth is better than theory. Oh, by the way...I am sure you read about the running bloody nose and headaches I mentioned in previous posts....so I won't add that. Besides, this is a thread about mold and teeth decay, not mold and headaches ,"water running" nose bleeds in some one who never gets nose bleeds. I guess that would be a new thread altogether. Diabeties has been ruled out as a factor.
