I'm 27 years old. 99% Paleo diet (Micro-brew beer is my kryptonite). I eat NO SUGAR. I never really did. Even when eating a SAD, sugary stuff was always too rich for me. I have lost 55 pounds and I have never felt happier and healthier. In an attempt to raise my all-around health, I decided not to ignore my dental health. I had not been to the dentist in almost 10 years until about 6 months ago. I never felt that I needed to but someone talked me in to it. I never had braces, retainer, or any other dental work. I brush my teeth 2-3 times a day depending on what I eat and how my mouth feels, I use flouride-free toothpaste because I disagree with the aluminum industry (long story), and I always floss; every day.
After my trip to the dentist, my teeth haven't been the same. I thought the method of scraping my teeth with a tiny meat hook seemed medieval but I went with it. Now, I am getting cavities. I am getting them in weird places. Not on the top of my teeth where food would sit and not between my teeth but on 2 of my molars, I am forming tender places halfway between my gum line and the top of the tooth. I have never had a cavity but I assume this is what it is but I cant see it.
Did the dentist scrape the enamel off of my teeth so I would get cavities and have to come back? It might sound crazy but that is how I feel. For 10 years, I never had problems with my teeth until I went to the dentist.
