I stopped brushing my teeth about a year ago. I floss with dental tape about once or twice a week, followed by a long gargle of hot water and sea salt. This seems to work well for me.

I used to suffer from receding gums because of my constant brushing, but when I flossed this morning I noticed that they're starting to grow back. Seeing that is very reassuring.

I've been eaten coarsely groud tongue, liver, kidney, speen and heart along with suet and other grassfed fat two days now, with very little else.  My teeth have gotten smoother since, so that I haven't needed to brush my teeth yet!

Wondering what exact kind of clay? Every time I go to buy clay I get the wrong kind...

Edible french green clay  is the right kind.

If your on a paleo diet, it doesnt really matter if you clean them or not, just clear it of debris

But if it contains plastic, the bacteria in your mouth will detiorate it, as all plastics are liquids & leech chemicals, even food grade plastics

You can prevent this easily, by using some lemon or vinegar, as suggested earlier, with something granular as a gentle scourer, im not sure clay is the correct medium, as clay reacts to plastics


Some sort of dried herbs, or oats, would work much better, as they dont react to plastics etc.


Basically create an anerobic environment the bacteria cant feed on, like the lemon, vinegar, peroxide etc

The only problem is, some bacteria will always get at the plastic, its probably best to try & get fully porcelain, or none toxic dentures

Or even better, make your own denture moulds

where can we find nontoxic dentures?
