Reversing Tooth Decay

A HUGE question that I get all the time is "how do you reverse tooth decay? It is possible?" One of my biggest struggles was finding a good dentist that actually understood the whole body approach to dentistry. The word "holistic" dentistry is thrown around and a dentist could be "holistic" by simply just not using mercury. I wanted more. I wanted a dentist to not just fix things when a problem occurred, but to help me keep a healthy mouth and understanding and recommending MORE than just brushing and flossing.

Duh, everyone knows to brush and floss. When I moved to Austin, I was SO happy to find Dr. Carpenter. I finally found a dentist that understand the nutrition side of oral care and how to take the whole body approach in dentistry.

Today, we're speaking about reversing tooth decay. A hot topic among many moms as we search for a natural alternative to take care of our kiddos.
