Before I made this thread, I used the "search" option on ATS and found many threads regarding this topic, but didn't find an exact answer to my
question. I decided to start a thread in the hopes that someone has any new information concerning this topic.
About a week ago, I had an appointment with the dentist and found out that underneath my fillings, I have a massive amount of deterioration happening.
Up until a few months ago, I used to be bulimic, a sweet eater, and a soda drinker, so my teeth have not been in the best shape over the past few
I used to use Crest a long time ago, and up until a week ago I used Arm & Hammer for about four years. Both of which contain fluoride. I am not saying

The dentist urged me to change my eating habits and gave me a prescription for PreviDent 5000 and told me to buy the mouthwash called ACT. Both of
these contain a high amount of fluoride and are said to help prevent the formation of cavities and to help rebuild enamel.
After a week of using both of these twice a day, I decided to look up more on fluoride and found a few posts that explain the negative side effects
that fluoride has on the human body.
Fluoride Conspiracy #2
Fluoride Conspiracy #3
Gathering from the information that I have read on both ATS and the thread's sources, I have found that fluoride has been linked to cancer,
calcification of the pineal gland, and many other health problems.
The main issue that I am having is finding an alternative to toothpaste. I understand that there are fluoride-free toothpastes on the market, but I am
wondering what the benefits and problems are from using Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda).
Of the threads and sources that I have read, I have not found an exact answer to what the pros and cons are to using Baking soda. There are people who
say to not use it because it apparently eats away at the enamel on your teeth. I am wondering if there is any new information regarding using baking
soda as an alternative to toothpaste as being beneficial?
