The Nutritional Secret to Never Needing Dental Work Again

Here's what most people don't realize:

Most issues in your dental health come down to nutritional deficiency.

While you can go in and fix issues directly (as your dentist would advise), unless you have enough of the necessary vitamins and minerals, you will get those issues again.

Before you get too excited let me say this.

Let's get past the hype and get real.

This article is certainly NOT saying that if you eat well and take your vitamins, you will never have to go to the dentist again. It is suggesting that the only possibility to avoid future dental issues is for your entire body to be healthy.

Certainly, there is an amount of genetics at play and the clean bills of dental health mentioned here are not typical.

But if you take the time to implement these principles, it is highly likely that you will save yourself from a lot of expensive and painful future dental surgeries. However, please consult your doctor before attempting any new diet, medication, or supplementation.

So let's dive deeper.

Treating the Symptoms and Not the Disease

Today’s dental approaches are about quick fixes.

Plug up the cavity before it gets deeper...

Cut the nerves before the pain gets worse...

Use medication to kill the germs before they spread...

Whiten the teeth before they embarrass you...

Most of these treatments, both at the dentist and your personal routine, can be harsh and often even counterproductive. This is not to say dentistry is unnecessary. As with all conditions, sometimes the symptoms become issues in themselves.

is often the hidden source of issues.

It's like changing your car engine but never changing the engine oil

The idea of going to your dentist to “fix your teeth” really is like when you put a band-aid on a deeper wound.

The truth is that the vast majority of people simply don’t get the nutrition they need and their symptoms show up in the mouth. [1]

Nutrition is like the oil to your car. It ensures that all parts are working smoothly. The first things that happen when there is any issue, things start to break down.

Can't I Just Take a Multivitamin and Forget It?

Multivitamins are a great way to supplement if you are deficient from your diet.

However, there are wrong vitamins to take.

You really just need to take what you are deficient at. While some water-soluble vitamins will just be released, some get absorbed and too much isn't good either if taken in the wrong quantity.

It's better to figure out what you still need and take the recommended amount.

Multivitamins can be over-absorbed
or under-absorbed. It is better to target
deficiencies with natural nutrition.

Diagnosing Deficiencies

Of course, when you lack nutrition, many health issues could be happening. You are what you eat after all.

Here's how you can tell what vitamins you should be taking more of:

  • Ask for a copy of your blood test results from your doctor. It will show what you are missing. Also ask the doctor what you should take.
  • If you don’t eat vegetables on a regular basis, you may need more vitamin C, iron, potassium.
  • If you do not eat much meat or beans, you may need more protein, vitamin B, and iron.
  • If you are indoors or live in a cold climate, you may need more vitamin D
  • If you are pregnant, you will need extra folic acid, iron and calcium.

But this may not be enough to really know what’s causing the issues you are experiencing. Consider that...

The Best Deficiency Meter is Your Mouth

Your mouth is a great indicator saying "check oil" (think about the car analogy again).

It’s harder to tell directly what’s going on inside your body. Even doctors rarely give you more than a passing glance (those x-rays and tests are expensive after all). Even with symptoms such as lack of energy or facial breakouts, it’s hard to recognize the cause of these issues, and we often dismiss it as part of the stress of daily life.

But the mouth is an open book.

If you know how to read it, you can get hints into what nutrition you are missing.

Here's a list of the most important nutrients and mouth issues. To diagnose your deficiency, check your current issues since the last time you saw your dentist on the chart below [2, 3]. Then see what nutrition you need more of.

Fix Dental Issues Directly with Topical Nutrition

As you know by now, good overall nutritional diet is the key to fixing your dental issues at the root.

But it takes time to see results.

Your body will be repairing itself, sending proper nutrition to the mouth...But, unless you get a very direct way to provide nutritional healing to mouth areas, you will likely have a few more of those oh-so unpleasant visits to the dentist.

Luckily, there's a TRICK!

The mouth can absorb nutrients directly with a nutritional mouthwash.

This works because the mouth has capillaries close to the surface to absorb nutrients dissolved by the saliva. Indeed, many medications use this technique to enter the bloodstream transbuccally (through the cheek) or sublingually (under the tongue).  [5, 6]

Nutrients absorbed directly into the mouth can immediately begin to be absorbed into the cells to start the oral healing process.

Where to get a nutritional mouthwash?

Although there aren't many options on the market, nutritional mouthwash is already showing that this approach is a game changer.

A quality product needs to be able to create the best nutritional and oral environmental conditions to be effective (which has many factors such as pH, lipid solubility, and molecular weight).

We believe the best option is Ultimate Gum Solution, which has shown to improve oral health issues for 91% of the subjects in 3-7 days.

So here's the bottom line when it comes to dental health

Good nutrition.

  • Find out what vitamins and minerals you are missing
  • Eat healthy nutrient-rich foods
  • And take a nutritional mouthwash.

Understandably you might forget these things when it comes to actually trying to implement this in your busy daily life.

To help you, we created a cheatsheet (this cheating is good for you health) to help you keep the nutrition you need and hopefully never need to get dental work again! You can get access to it here to print it as a helpful reminder.

Sung Lee, Founder

"I had spent over $25,000 for two major gum surgeries with only partial success. Since formulating Ultimate Gum Solution, I’ve never been to a dentist office or spend even one penny for any gum treatment.  

These 15 years we've been in business, our aim has been to assure those with gum disease symptoms should never have to spend $1000's on gum surgeries and treatments as long as they take the nutritional path."
