Scare tactics as part of marketing strategies dont help either. My dental plan resides 10,000 miles/24 hours away. I rely on herbal remedies until I can get there. My airfare, plus stay, and maybe some shopping, will all add up to the expense needed for treatment here!
Recent visit to a dentist was an amazing diagnosis for fifty dollars. She scared me by promoting the urgency of getting the “root canal done today itself, otherwise it will hurt more on the weekend. Two caps … dont get it done in that country, they leave tools in the mouth. Our treatment is good for 15 years, there’s no guarantee for their treatment lasting till your next trip.” Two months later, I am still pain free and researching other ways to management. The oath is more hippocratic to enable the doctors to buy mansions, besides their ranches and feeding herds of deer.
Most Americans have fluoride pollution deliberately dumped into their public water supplies. There is no credible evidence that taking fluoride in water has ever prevented a single dental cavity. The forced-fluoridation fanatics often try to claim that the low rates of dental caries in western European countries which do not have artificially fluoridated public water supplies are due to naturally occurring fluoride in water, or some other kind of artificial fluoridation such as salt fluoridation. They are lying. They also rely on studies which do not measure individual fluoride exposure, are not randomised, are not blinded, do not properly account for confounding factors, are highly prone to systematic error, and are typically funded by corporations such as Colgate-Palmolive.
