You all gotta read this one.
Limewater is the best mouthwash I had so far. Did you have a coffee or a tea 5 hours ago? You will spit it out yellow.
It's providing calcium, has a very high Ph (12) and while being a hydroxide, its solubility in water is only 1.73 g/L (20 °C) so if you let it sit
untill it's clear it isnt agressive at all to the gums. I got so used to it that I even stir it up a bit to make it stronger.
I plan to use a dry 1:1 ratio of CaOH with CaO as the greatest cavity filler. Dentists use it rather as a base liner when covering the pulp and make
the rest of a composite. It doesnt make sense. CaO with polyethylene glycol is used as a root canal filler. The best part is - water rises the volume
and once it sets, the outer layer comes in contact with CO2 and forms a hard calcium carbonate. If bacteria tries to dissolve it with acid later, it
releases CaOH again and kills them. Even if the cavity is deep and dentin is weak and still full of infection the calcium hydroxide will sterilize and
heal it when sealed inside. The pressure propagates it deep into the tissue and remineralizes it... The tooth grows again. The cells like the high
alkalinity. You can remove the outer seal (one that you made of some glass ionomer) to see the progress later.
