Understand Why Early Childhood Caries Happens

Why do some children's teeth decay, while other teeth remain immune? Is it simply a matter of contracting the bacteria that is said to cause cavities, or is it a matter of nutrition and diet?

Tooth decay is caused by a deficiency of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the body needed to build healthy teeth. In a study conducted with Rats, rats fed on whole freshly ground wheat, had a calm temperament, and no tooth decay. Meanwhile, Rats fed white flour, were markedly undersized. Their hair came out in large patches and they had very ugly dispositions, so ugly that they threatened to spring through the cage wall at us when we came to look at them. These rats had tooth decay and they were not able to reproduce” Weston Price, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, Chapter 15

“Daily, the calcium and phosphate of the enamel is migrating out of the teeth to the bones, heart, brain and other places where it is needed. This is called by dentists demineralization.”1 Re-enamelization (teeth growing back) of enamel requires several factors, including enough minerals such as calcium, phosphate, magnesium, and the variety of enzymes needed to regrow tooth enamel such as adenosine diphophatase.2 Dr. Weston Price was a dentist who traveled around the world in the 1930’s and 1940’s studying the diet’s of primitive people’s isolated from the modern world. Weston Price found that he could eliminate or greatly reduce bad bacteria’s in the mouth, the supposed cause of tooth decay through diet alone. “These data are typical of clinical cases in which dental caries has been reduced apparently to zero, as indicated by both x-ray and instrumental examination.” 3

Early Childhood Caries Begins Many Generations Back

“The weakness of calcium deficiency is passed from parent to child. By following the same paternal pattern of ‘poor food selection,’ each new crop of babies becomes weaker. ‘The sins of the parents are passed on to the third and fourth generation.’”4 The weakness is caused not just by a lack of calcium, but by a lack of fat soluble & water soluble vitamins. “When Dr. Price analyzed the foods used by isolated primitive peoples he found that they provided at least four times the water soluble vitamins, calcium and other minerals, and at least TEN times the fat soluble vitamins from animal foods such as butter, fish eggs, shellfish and organ meats… Many tribes required a period of premarital nutrition, and children were spaced to permit the mother to maintain her full health and strength, thus assuring subsequent offspring of physical excellence.” 5 Many primitive groups Dr. Price studied had a tooth cavity rate close to 0. Weston Price also noticed in groups following their traditional diet that decayed teeth either fell out painlessly, or they covered themselves over with a hardened layer of enamel. Weston Price treated many cases of cavities with a success rate of over 90%. At the end of this article is a copy of Dr. Price’s tooth decay controlling diet for children. Below on this page on my web site I’ve scanned an x-ray image showing how Price’s tooth decay controlling diet healed a girls teeth which had two cavities per tooth, which full dentures where recommended. 6
