My Visit to the Dentist!!

Hey Guys,

Okay, I feel compelled to write a blog about my latest visit to the dentist.

Recently I managed to get signed on with a new dentist, after years of unsuccessful attempts at registering with one! I had been without a dentist for roughly 10 years, and had only a few emergency visits during that time.

Sat in the waiting room before my first visit I was naturally anxious. The dentist man was very pleasant and made me feel relaxed, he had a good vibe about him. He had a look, did a couple of X-rays (unfortunate, but had to be done!), then started work!

I had a good scrape, clean up and polish job, then came the curious part. He said I had a tiny bit of decay and recommended a filling, then he told me to sit back and I was a bit confused as to what was going to happen next, so I asked...

"Are you going to do it now??"
"Yes!" he replied
"Is it the mercury filling or the white stuff?"
"The Amalgam"
"Is that the mercury one?"
"Yes, but the dangers of the amalgam fillings have been highly exagerated"

I realised at that point he was actually going to go ahead and do it, without asking me first, AND to make it worse he was going to do it with something I have been against for years! It would have just happened without my consent if I hadn't have questioned him as to what was going on. I would have had it done and not really known. Is this the sort of training these people have? They make assumptions that we will agree with everything that they are doing?

I then asked what the other options were. He told me the white fillings cost an extra £46. He showed me the x-ray and told me the tiny bit of pre-decay would take years to actually affect me. I felt I didn't even need the filling right now and would go home to do some research as I'd read recently about certian nutrition that can actually reverse decay.

He also added that I had unusually healthy teeth and gums, and whatever i'm doing, carry on, because its working! I told him I had been brushing with a NON-FLUORIDE toothpaste for the last 10 years. He concluded it was probably down to good genetics and nothing to do with the toothpaste. He informed me that he was for Fluoride and needed to brush with it everyday as his teeth were prone to decay. He added that he was envious of my teeth's resistance! (anyone see a pattern here?)

One last word of warning he gave me was to NOT drink too many fresh juices as these will decay my teeth quickly! This surprised me as I am an advocate of juicing and drink tons of it everyday! I did almost laugh, and thought Jason Vale (the juicemaster) would have a field day, but I heard him out! But How come my teeth are so healthy Mr Dentist Man? Is it because I actually know the truth about health and you actually spout bullshit, that you have been taught, to your patients?

Never trust "health professionals" to always have your best interests at heart, always ask questions and above all, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!!

Be Well.

Kroaky - Poo! :P


  1. I've been looking into Ozone Dental Therapy. Seems better than all those old fashioned drills and toxic metals they want to fill your mouth up with!

    "Decay and bacteria are identified in areas of the teeth, usually with the help of a laser. A suction cup is then used to direct the ozone onto the desired area. With the bacteria completely eradicated the dentist will then place a special mineralisation agent onto the clean area that enables the healing of the tooth. Follow up visits will be used to ensure that the bacteria have not reappeared; if it has then more ozone treatment may be needed. Patients can use mineral toothpastes and mouthwashes at home to help their teeth re-mineralise."

  2. Well it is clearly not the dentist's fault here, he is following guidelines & training from higher authority. Again it comes back to government levels and the sheep policing the sheep
    ( to quote David Icke )
    I took my son to a dentist that just deals with special needs Children a few years ago because he had never, ever let a dentist look at his teeth his whole life. She was very against the fact that I used non-flouride toothpaste and asked if I was seeing a certain local homeopath as he had been telling all these parents to get non -flouride toothpaste for their kids & the dentist were not happy with his advice. I said no, it was my own research that led me to using non flouride & I got the same garbled nonsense about how you cannot trust the internet etc etc
    Have now got new dentist affiliated with & shares building with complementary health centre. MUCH more understanding & approves of my non-flouride choice. Nice dentist & my son finally allowed this one to look at his teeth for the first time ever. As far as I am aware they don't use amalgam but over my dead body would that stuff go near my kids or myself. Liam you did the absolute right thing here. It really is up to us to make informed choices about all levels of our healthcare.

  3. I would also add that my son, now 14, has perfect teeth and has used non flouride toothpaste since he was 6 years old!
