Dentists everywhere are confirming this trend. More and more preschoolers from all income levels have 6 -10 or even more cavities. It doesn’t seem to matter if the child gets regular checkups or whether good tooth brushing habits are followed.
The decay is often so severe that the teeth are literally crumbling out of a child’s mouth and surgery is immediately recommended. Multiple fillings and root canals in a single visit necessitates general anesthesia as a child that young cannot sit still for the length of time required to fix so many severely rotting teeth. Sometimes sedation with laughing gas and a local anesthetic works, but not always.
Something is obviously very, very wrong with the diet of the vast majority of children to cause such severe tooth decay at such a young age.
Constant snacking on refined carbohydrates and juice is no doubt a big part of the problem as is the complete void of nutrient dense foods in most children’s diets.
Fortunately, more parents are discovering the power of simple dietary changes to save their children’s teeth. I’ve written before on how I healed my child’s cavity in a few weeks with dietary change alone. No filling was ever required for that tooth. This was over 5 years ago now.
How about severe and rampant decay in a preschooler’s mouth, however?
If you think that your child’s teeth are beyond help and surgery is the only option, think again. This Mom’s video below of how it only took 5 days for severe decay to stop with dietary change alone is sure to change your thinking about the possibilities for your own child.
Warning: Dentists will likely ridicule this approach as they were never taught that cavities can heal in dental school, but the fact is that tooth decay can be reversed and renowned dentist Dr. Weston A. Price wrote about it in his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.
Just because your dentist doesn’t believe it doesn’t mean it doesn’t work.
At the very least it’s worth a shot before putting your child through surgery, wouldn’t you agree?
The protocol the Mom in the video below used for reversing severe decay in her young child is outlined in detail in the book Cure Tooth Decay, by Rami Nagel. I highly recommend this book as a must read if you are having cavity problems in your child or even in yourself.
The Mother was told surgery was the only way to go for her daughter due to the severity of the decay.
The dentist was wrong.
Only simple dietary changes were required to fix this child’s severe tooth decay without any surgery required!

Please note that while dietary changes were responsible for healing this rampant tooth decay, a natural toothpaste that facilitates remineralization can also be of help.
