Very interesting subject. I wish more nutritional advice was offered, but maybe that is something I must research further. One of my priorities

5.0 out of 5 stars.  I think it is better then what is generally out there- I have read ..., June 26, 2016
By A. D. Lane
I give her 5 stars because she has written the only oral health book about "arresting cavities" I have heard of. While it has been a long time since I read it, it was certainly well organized from a table- of -content view. She wrote clearly when describing what is possible and what is not possible as far as the treatment of cavities, which is another first especially if you have error-ed by reading too much of the alternative holistic side. Mini-gripes might be written on 6th grade level which is quite a task since it is really a health-science topic, obviously she purposed it that way to play to more readers. In my opinion, she is a bit inexperienced on all the holistic remedies out there, but she very young as her picture portrays; and she lives on the Canadian side of the border; where Canada Health can sometimes be more restrictive than our FDA, believe it or not. Maybe little too girly pollyannaish, but the real truth always bleed true. All an all, again, I think it is better then what is generally out there- I have read the top 4- because she has a DDS with some experience, and her father has 40 years of experience as a Dentist; yet she is neither too orthodox , nor too pie-in-the-sky, unsubstantiated alternative. It is a must read for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Most Objective and Helpful Book on the Topic of Preventing, Halting, and Reversing Dental Decay Naturally, February 16, 2016
By Jay W.
I experienced significant dental decay as a child. My diet was less than ideal and even the most sophisticated treatments at the dentist could not stop the progression. With fillings on nearly 1/3 of my adult teeth that had become more sensitive with each visit, I decided to make some proactive changes in my diet during my late teenage years. While a better diet, daily flossing, and really strong fluoride toothpaste helped slow down the decay, it never completely solved the problem.

Towards my early thirties I decided to change my career and pursue the nutrition profession. It was during this time that I came across the teachings of Dr. Weston A Price through the works of Rami Nagiel. Finally I found the reasons why my best attempts at dieting and oral hygiene alone where not enough to halt the dental decay. Unfortunately Rami’s recommended diet was quite difficult for me to implement due to a wide range of food sensitivities/intolerances that I have been experiencing for much of what he was recommending (and actively working on overcoming).

(I must admit that I felt quite guilty when I ultimately had to have two root canals performed on back molars (despite spending a year trying my best to endure increasing sensitivity in hopes that I could somehow miraculously reverse the whole thing once I could adopt the right diet)....If I had read Dr. Benoit’s book back then I would have felt a lot less conflicted with that decision.)

Dr. Benoit more than any other author does a remarkable job on providing an objective description as to why dental decay occurs, and how to naturally halt and possibly reverse the process. A wide range of natural strategies are presented to tackle the multifaceted causes for this condition (as opposed to a one size fits all approach which she strongly discourages) Most importantly realistic assessment guidelines are given to determine the likelihood as to whether a tooth can be restored through natural means (or when it is a better choice to have restorative work performed).

As a future nutritionist specializing in integrative and functional medicine I am very happy to be able to promote Dr. Benoit’s work to future clients experiencing dental decay. If I could recommend one book on the subject I would definitely choose this title. Ideally I would combine this with Rami Nagiel’s “Cure Tooth Decay Now” to get an understanding of the Weston A Price protocol, which appears to be the best dietary intervention available to prevent, halt, and reverse dental decay (I have a good deal of first person testimony on this one, even though my current dietary restrictions have prevented me from fully trying it myself).

The only real limitation to this book is that Dr. Benoit really sticks to the subject of treating dental decay naturally. She does not discuss natural protocols for gum disease (which are similar but slightly different from my understanding) or go into depth with the application of oral probiotics, oil pulling, mineralizing toothpastes, and other related topics. Although when you consider that the book comes to 292 pages I can hardly blame her.... especially when others have discussed these subjects in depth, whereas no dentist has really delved into natural solutions for healing ones teeth.

So I am looking forward to following future works by this author in the future....

5.0 out of 5 stars.  a great book to supplement other dental self help books, January 03, 2016
By Van Alexopoulos
i have read about a half dozen books about dentistry. I have no formal dental knowledge, just a passion for health. I was sceptical at first that a dentist would be preaching remineralisation and was not sure if I would gain access to new information. I was pleasantly surprised. The book was easy to read (for non dentists) and presented a wide and detailed body of knowledge about cavity formation (food, stress, hormones, glands, minerals, etc) as well as remineralization. a great book and complementary to Holistic dentistry by Nadine Artemis and Cure Tooth Decay by Ramiel Nagel and ladt but not least, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston A Price, DDS. Kindle version was just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Finally, Just the Facts, November 20, 2015
By Kalatraza
Cavities. I keep getting them. Dentists. I hate them. You see the problem, right? So when I heard about "healing cavities," I thought that sounded pretty good. After reading too many contradictory websites from "experts" in this field, I still didn't know if I should go out and buy a tank of coconut oil. Sometimes only a book will do.

Dr. Benoit's book was _exactly_ what I needed. She explains clearly what can be accomplished with these healing techniques and what simply won't work. I learned, for instance, that pre-cavity areas between the teeth probably won't benefit from the oft recommend cavity healing techniques -- teeth are simply too close together for those areas to have enough exposure to those products.

There are many books in the Amazon store about this topic, and I chose this one because it seemed like it would be an unbiased look at what you can reasonably accomplish with natural dental care. It delivered, and I've recommended the book to several equally pleased friends since I read it.

The reading level in this book is at the level of an average reader -- the skill level you would need to read a newspaper. It isn't overly technical ad doesn't have a lot of medical words in it either.

Happy reading! And brushing!
