I have been blessed to live in most places without fluoridated water for a long time. Fluoridation has long been controversial. I suggest you look up some of its effects long term. Here is a site completely devoted to anti-fluoride: http://fluoridealert.org/studies/acute03/
As anyone who has read About Me on this blog, you know that I have MTHFRc677t, which causes heart disease, cancer, and mental illnesses. And I have some bad tooth decay I am working on probably from fungi in my mouth. My dear old Monterey dentist, Constance Newton, who though not a biological dentist, suggested I try a chocolate toothpaste that uses a product, which I believe contains theobromine, from the cocoa bean instead of fluoride. This toothpaste is Theodent Luxury Toothpaste. I will let Dr. Mercola explain how it can help re-mineralize and help decay though if you google it you will find many pages touting theobromine over fluoride.

"Oil pulling" for remineralization and cleaning of teeth is an ancient method in which you melt coconut oil and swish it in your mouth for several minutes each morning. It works wonderfully but I find it hard to do first thing in the a.m.
Amazon carries many re-mineralizing products. I chose all non-GMO to share with you as even some of the major brands are now getting into the act.
Personally, after my chocolate toothpaste I use also MAF Active Toothpaste with coconut oil and zeolite. As I do not sell this and it is hard to get, please email me for information. As one world respected epigeneticist claims, McGAF will be our replacement for antibiotics. As I do not sell it, I will let you do some research. Here is Sterling Hill's current list: http://gcmafblogspot.weebly.com/blog/published-medical-journals
As for toothbrushes, I use a pretty wonderful Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean Sonic Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush.
Yes, it was expensive. It is excellent for travel.
MTHFR and the biotoxins that caused it have been very hard on my teeth but I am restoring a tooth I was told would need pulling. Fingers crossed.
I hope some of this helps any of you who want to stay away from the dentist as I do. All the strict diet and supplements I need to stay alive have really changed my life. Traditional medicine damaged me and almost put me in the ground. I am deeply grateful for all I have had to do and that I am still alive to share it with you.
