How I Got Rid of My Daughter’s Cavities in 4 Months is one of the more astounding articles I’ve written, as I find I’m still scratching my head about how easy it was and how well Oral Calcium Therapy worked. I even wrote the founder of this product to ask, ‘Is this normal?’, to which he replied that, yes, he’s seen amazing results during the last 50 years from over 65 countries.
If you’re new to the idea of putting a specially formulated therapy of calcium-zinc liquid on the teeth and gums to cause complete oral health recovery, I was, too, until several months ago.
Is oral calcium safe
I learned from functional medical doctors many years ago to not take calcium pills (don’t swallow calcium as a supplement). Calcium supplements raise blood calcium levels, which actually throws off the balance of minerals in the body and does not build bone. (1, 2) Calcium pills do increase the risk of heart attack and death. (3, 4)
So honestly, I was wary of any calcium product.
However, Oral Calcium Therapy was recommended by my doctor. He works in the careful spirit of “do no harm”, with incredible research into what actually causes deep recovery in the body. So I tried it.
I am also reassured that the oral topical application of this product is negligible in terms of how much calcium is ingested.
As with any supplement, though, consult your doctor, and if you don’t feel good using it, stop.
How I Got Rid of My Daughter’s Cavities: her background
We adopted our daughter from Africa almost exactly one year ago. She was 4 years old at the time and came home to us with a few cavities in her molars that you could easily see. (I am so sorry now that I did not photograph her teeth so as to be able to provide “before” photos.)
But I hope you can imagine the likelihood of a child growing up in a shelter who was suffering from malnutrition and lack of great oral hygiene; she had cavities.
I waited to take her to the dentist for several reasons. During that delay, I focused on diet and looked for ways to reverse the cavities before her first dentist appointment.
We started Calcium Therapy
After she’d been home about seven months with a nutritious diet, I learned about Oral Calcium Therapy. I read up on it and ordered a bottle. We started brushing her teeth with this easy product.
My husband is the one who brushes her teeth at night, as part of our bedtime routine. So I literally did not look at her molars for months, amidst our busy life.
Then, one night recently, when I was doing her teeth for a change, I peeked in to see how her cavities looked, and was truly astounded to find that they were all completely gone!
In just four short months, gone.
How could this be? Most people believe fillings are the only answer, or worse interventions for bad cavities.
Still others share remedies that aren’t safe. Yet we found something that worked so gently and effortlessly?!
Yes, success, that easily. Checked that box! No cavities.
But we’ll continue to use Oral-Cal Mouth Rinse for overall tooth and gum health, as well as cavity prevention.
How I Got Rid of My Daughter’s Cavities: What is Oral Calcium Therapy
The Oral Calcium Therapy products and approach were created by Dr. Mark Manhart back in the 1970s. He’s been using them with his patients and sharing the methods worldwide since that time.
These products contain calcium, zinc and trace amounts of magnesium. As I’ll describe more below, patients brush these minerals onto the teeth, and then allow them to absorb while they sleep.
From the Calcium Therapy website: “These rapid, safe, advanced dental treatments stimulate the gums, the bone, whitens [sic] and tighten the teeth. They control abscesses, cysts and bad breath.”
When you go to the website, what you’ll see most of all is testimonies and information about his products healing periodontal disease. Look for amazing recovery of gum health, no longer needing dental interventions or surgery and also some talk of cavity prevention.
Regarding specifically the product we’ve used, we read, “Regular use of the Oral-Cal Mouth Rinse reduces plaque, stains, bad breath, calculus, sensitivity, decay and soothes canker sores or similar gum irritations.”
Why Oral Calcium Therapy works on teeth
Dr. Mark explains that teeth are VERY porous. He says that when we whiten our teeth with products like peroxide, we are sucking calcium from them — the worst thing we can do.
Instead, when we put calcium on top of the teeth with this product (don’t rinse it off), and leave it there night after night, the teeth suck it up. As a result, the teeth harden and whiten.
Where to buy
Find Oral Calcium Mouth Rinse here. (I do not benefit in any way from your purchase.)
How to use Oral Calcium mouth rinse
The main thing to know about Dr. Manhart’s simple product is that when the bottle comes in the mail, it looks empty!
That’s because the mineral solution is smeared around the inside neck of the bottle.
Fill the bottle with distilled water, seal the lid, and set it upside down for 6 hours to overnight. After that, enough of the calcium from the neck has dissolved into the water base. So you have your first solution ready to use. (Watch the instruction video for more details. But just know that the empty bottle that arrives in the mail isn’t really empty!)
The second product option, as you’ll see on the website, is to buy the toothbrush (here), with product already on it. Many customers find this product more convenient.
Use either of these products just before bed, with no drinking of liquids afterwards. (So the minerals sit on the teeth overnight.)
Who should not use OCT
If you’re very sensitive to zinc, which a small percentage of the population is, then you might react to this product.
Most of us benefit from zinc’s effect on copper in the body. But supplemental forms of zinc are not gentle enough for everyone. Most people will not react to supplemental zinc. But it’s worth noting that some do, so proceed or decide with that awareness.
What else to add to Oral Calcium Therapy: co-factors
If you have sensitive gums (or gums that bleed), you may very likely be deficient in Vitamin K. Some patients add Vitamin K (about 3 drops) to their toothbrush when they brush with OCT, as an added step to improving gum health.
But for most, just starting with one of Dr. Mark’s simple and easy to use products may be enough.
Fat-sourced supplements confusion
In Ancestral communities, some success stories with cavities exist from the use of fermented cod liver oil.
For those interested in or confused about FCLO: When cod liver oil is digested, two things happen: one, it creates aldehydes, and two, the vitamin A in it oxidizes. This oil is not a food to be eaten; it is a toxic fat to be avoided. Learn more about why to avoid CLO here.
In regard to butter oil (often recommended with FCLO for its K2), ideally we do consume Vitamin K2 [MK-4] for tooth repair (but avoid butter oil and high fat supplements to avoid fatty liver).
Side note: If you supplement with Vitamin K pills (like these), choose the Vitamin K without Vitamin D.
How I Got Rid of My Daughter’s Cavities: Dietary changes for better tooth and gum health
When we are less toxic, our teeth and gums reflect that. I could never say enough good things about a Low vitamin A Diet for improving liver and general health. You can read more about that and my personal testimony after over four years on the diet here.
For the least rigorous version of similar dietary changes, I’d point you to an Anti-Inflammatory Diet.
And if you need a great doctor, here’s my doctor’s website.
