The #1 Reason Some People Never Get a Cavity.
Hint - It's Not Better Brushing and Flossing.
I'm pretty sure you and I have both lived the exact same moment.
Remember the weird smell as the drill burred into your tooth, or the awkward position of your jaw as countless fingers and tools were jammed into your mouth? How about the moment when the dentist said rinse and spit, and all your fat lip and numb tongue could manage was to dribble wetness down the front of your chin?
As it turns out we're not alone. Our dread, fear, frustration and disappointment at the pain and expense of another cavity is something 92% of adults experience.
Does the other 8% have special powers?
As you'll see in just a moment, once you understand what causes cavities, you can tap into the special powers of the 8%.
You Shouldn't Blame Yourself for Cavities
We've all heard the key to avoiding cavities is to eat less sugar, do a better job brushing and flossing, and see the dentist every six months. Some of us have even tried to buy the best toothpaste and toothbrush we could find.
But before blaming yourself - your sweet tooth, your hurried brushing or your never flossing - remember that if your current toothpaste really worked, you wouldn't have cavities.
The notion that better diet and hygiene can reduce your risk of getting cavities is only partially true, as I'll explain below. And even if avoiding sugar and mastering the perfect toothbrush stroke worked, let's be honest - these aren't solutions that fit into our lives and habits.
The Real Reason We Get Cavities
The truth is cavities are caused by specific bacteria that spread easily within families and can last a lifetime. Once you understand where this bacteria lives, how it spreads and what it does, you'll know how to actually solve your cavity problem rather than chasing the pipe dream of perfect hygiene.
I remember sitting in on my first scientific lecture at a dental convention in San Diego. I was at the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry and Dr. John Featherstone, now the Dean of Dentistry at UCSF, was explaining the role these nasty bacteria play in causing tooth decay. In short, they break down the food you eat into acid that dissolves your teeth.
Brush Better. Floss More. You've Heard That Before.
Dr. Featherstone's proposed solutions to cavities didn't involve teaching patients better brushing and flossing techniques. Instead, he focused on tools you and I could realistically use to defeat cavity-causing bacteria. Why?
Because even the best brushing and flossing techniques only temporarily remove bacteria from tooth surfaces. And when you reuse the same toothbrush as you did yesterday, what do you imagine is all over its handle and bristles?
What's more, these cavity-causing, plaque-producing bacteria create homes where even the best tooth brushing and flossing can only dream about removing them. So instead of just sloshing them around with your toothbrush, you need a solution to get rid of these nasty germs and make sure they stay gone.
Here's the Secret of the Other 8%
So here's the secret of the 8% of adults who have never had a cavity - either they never caught this nasty bacteria or they have taken steps to eliminate it from their mouths.
Without this bacteria, their teeth thrive no matter how much sugar they eat, or how poorly they brush their teeth.
So why don't dentists just give every patient an antibiotic or germ-killing mouthwash? Because we actually have lots of good bacteria that live in our mouths and we don't want them gone. We need a solution that specifically targets cavity-causing bacteria.
Top Dentists Recommend Xylitol to Their Most At-Risk Patients
Top dentists and leading dental associations recommend using a xylitol, a natural sweetener. That's because the research shows that regular use of xylitol may reduce your risk of tooth decay.
Xylitol disrupts bacteria-fueled, tooth-eating acid attacks. Less acid means healthier teeth. It also destroys the nasty mouth mung that lingers on your teeth. Less mouth mung means you'll feel that slippery-smooth, fresh-from-the-dentist clean all over your mouth.
The easiest way to give your teeth exposure to xylitol is to put it in products you use everyday - like gum and mints. Replacing your normal gums and mints with ones containing high amounts of xylitol can have a huge impact on your dental health.
Getting the Right Amount of Xylitol is Key
Be wary when you see the big gum and mint corporations advertise xylitol - they like to promote that a little goes a long way.
We don't disagree - with anything but their murky definition of "little." They should say "miniscule," or "barely any," or "you should really just chew a different gum."
So here's one quick tip - When looking for xylitol gum, be sure to choose gums that are 100% xylitol-sweetened to make sure you are getting an effective dose. And here's another tip - be sure to use xylitol at least three time each day.
