I've become aware of the fact that my teeth are starting to be more translucent (especially the front, but also the tops of the others). I did some research on this and it seems that I have some dental erosion going on. Since the summer I'd been drinking a lot of lemon water and since that has a very low PH (=very acid) I'm betting this is part of the reason. After reading this thread (http://paleohacks.com/questions/12347/solutions-for-transparent-teeth#axzz1BW4PELLt) I think a lack of vitamin D,K2, calcium and/or magnesium might also have something to do with it.
I've already ordered a special toothpaste (Miradent Nanosensitive HCA 50g) which is supposed to help with it and an appointment with my dentist is coming up next month.
So my questions are: - Am I right in assuming Paleo + too much acid-based liquids are the source of this problem? - Has anyone else experienced the same problem? - Is this reversible? I'd like it to be because I need that perfect white teeth smile to lure girls back to my cave! - (This one is obvious:) Anybody knows of a solution for this? - I've read that it's best if the stuff that the teeth needs to restore enamel (whether that's calcium, or whatever) is put on the teeth itself instead of supplementing (like with capsules). Seems to make sense, but is this true?
My background info: - Been Paleo since Feb 2010 - Supplements: 2000IU D3 (since 1 week), fish oil, NOW Food Super Enzymes (irrelevant).
I hope somebody has some good info on this!
