View Full Version : Titanium?
10-05-2008, 08:47 AM
I have been reading a little about 'oil pulling' and taking care of teeth naturally, but all these things I have found or like a day late and a dollar short.:( I am 61 and have had gum problems and tooth decay and have battled this for many years. I wish I would have found out the 'natural' way of taking care of my teeth many years ago. My question is this: Has anyone ever thought about replacing missing teeth with the titanium rods and porcelin caps they have now? Also, would anyone know if there would be disastrous consequences in having this done, as far as toxins entering the body? I have a partial upper plate and and have lost two more teeth that are part of the plates support system and have several upper teeth missing but did check into this type of replacement and it is very, very expensive. So, still just debating and wondering if it would be a healthy option for myself. Any feedback on this subject would be helpful.

I don't know.....I just wanted you to know that someone is out here, "BUMPING" this Thread up in hopes that someone else will see it and give you the answer you are looking for.
I think one thing we can do to cover our Sins for our mistakes we have made with our Teeths......is to teach our Children all we can about Brushing, Flossint and taking care of their Teeth. And how important Dental Check-ups are.

I do think that a partial plate is the healthiest way to replace missing teeth even if it is the least glamourous.

Sport & Spicy, thanks for commenting.
Sport, you are probably right with the partial plate as one isn't planting some foreign metal in their jaw bones.
Spicy, Yes, it is very important to properly clean one's teeth, but, I think more important is the living foods. I wish I would have known more about lifestyle at a younger age. Teaching our children how to eat healthy and stay away from SAD would help as well. But, sometimes, they don't want to hear it! :(
I am still open for info from anyone concerning the ins and outs of this procedure. Thanks again.
