Today I want to talk about fluoride but I also want to talk about the dentists that do videos that support fluoride.
Hey guys! Happy New Year's, Merry Christmas all that other stuff is all done and gone. I wanted to have a rant today I figured everybody's at work. What you're gonna see on my desk is, I've got pages and pages front and back of a lot of stuff that I want to tell you about. I'm hoping that we'll link it down below and that you'll find some reason to look at it if it affects you.
Misconception of Fluoride
Guys I think it's a grave mistake I think it's one of the gravest of our time. I think fluoride is a poison and I think everyone should know where it comes from and how it's made. I think if they did they'd pause on the effects that they let it have even in low dosage. My concern is that I hope that everyone takes what they know about fluoride and protects the smallest people around us. People under the age of 8.
I think it has negative effect. What I wanted you to know is I think any dentist that supports it should be able to say that he has a science degree,and that he's actually used that science degree instead of just relying on old data. People see that a DDS degree means something and when a doctor says it's safe for you, then you should be able to depend on that.
When a doctor tells you that it's absolutely safe and communities that fluoridate the water have less cavities, then I would question that data and where it came from and when it was true and if it's still real today. The reason being is because it's not a dispute that's been argued at a state level or city level. In major developed countries all over the world, they have proven against fluoridation of water because the negative effects.
What is Fluorosis?
Now let me tell you why I don't like fluoride. There's a disease called Fluorosis. Fluorosis comes from people who get too much access to fluoridation. It's a fluoride poisoning and it shows up in the teeth. I've got a picture here there to show you what it looks like.
This is what it looks like, it's when you get spots, dots and pits all on your teeth and you don't know why. People think you're poor, you don't brush your teeth , and they think that you just don't practice good dental hygiene and it's BS. I get cases like this every day. They're so concerned with the cost of fixing it that they don't even go to the dentist and find out what it is. When really the only thing they did wrong was do the same thing everybody else does, they just did it too much. I shouldn't have to show you those pictures to sell you that fluorosis doesn't exist if fluoride doesn't exist. If it affected these people and if it's one in a million, if you're one of these people you don't care what the percentages are.
Obviously if your teeth are strong, healthy, and nice you'd like to think that fluoride had something to do with it, but if it was just bought data then I think you need to know that as well. I see these cases.
In Need of a Christmas Miracle
This case came to me the other day at Christmas time, where a young lady that's in her 20's has a marriage, produced a baby moving a family forward in life and can't smile came from the state of Kentucky. My problem with Kentucky is that it's the number one fluoridated state in the country. I get an extraordinary amount of cases that come in like this from Kentucky, and it's not something that happened yesterday or last year or 10 years from now. This happened 15 years ago because when those kids were six, ten years later they're 16. Well add to that they're 26, they're making babies, moving forward in life, and the effects of brushing with fluoride has affected their teeth so bad that they can't open their mouths in a social setting.
They take Christmas money, and instead of spending it on the spouse they ask mom to help them financially support a single arch veneer that may help them get their business started or get them going with a with job and career choices. So when I saw this case I saw it was for an upper only and I knew by looking at the case that this person needed top and bottom and guys I was so incredibly impressed when I actually got to call her on the phone and I realized one of the things that shocked me was is that no dentist had even taken the time to tell her what it is. She didn't know what she was suffering from. We're not dentists, so we just said let's see what we can do. We will see what we can do to get it covered.
The Hypocrisy of the Dental Industry
Obviously the people that have Fluorosis, for the most part their teeth don't hurt. It's just that the enamel is not strong and it's weathering and there's different severity, but most of the people I talked to you say their teeth don't hurt. They just wish they didn't look so bad.
If you're in an auto accident and you cut your finger or you cut your nose you can get plastic surgery because nobody wants a scar. But if you scar your teeth they think oh it's just cosmetic, and if you want to fix that you have to pay that out-of-pocket. I know that Fluorosis for more than 10 years affected this lady so bad that I think her life would be incredibly different. I think the people that she loves would have benefited from all of her energies differently if something didn't happen to her smile. It was something that didn't happen to her by any fault of her own, she went with the best advice that was available to her. There's dentists all over the state of Kentucky that could have easily made that information available.
When you talk to the 40% of teenagers that have some degree of Fluorosis that show up in their teeth, I promise you every one of those 40% would say I'll do whatever I can to get rid of these spots on my teeth. And you hope that it's just that small of a problem.
Profit Over Ethics
The other thing is I think that dentists who support fluoride need to be real careful in the fact that they're not supporting a problem that they are going to profit from later. Because when you reject the people that don't come in at 16, guess what when they're 26, 36, and 46 those are problems that our profit centers for dentist. So you have to wonder are they motivated to prevent these problems and that's my concern, that's what bothers me.
My second thing is every dentist out there that wants to say they believe in fluoride needs to support their data, but besides their data they have to be clear about their conflict of interest. In other words if I'm a doctor that's saying oh I see science all the time that says this stuff is safe and it helps remineralize teeth. Ask them every year that you've been in business how much do you profit every year from fluoride. If you were in business in 2000, what was your revenue for fluoride in 2000 and you forward that for five years or ten years. How much money do you make selling fluoride?
Question Your Dentist
The reason is it's a profit center that they don't have to sell to the client. What I want you to know it's a true medicine, it's a medication, and it is a treatment. Right now if I was to take any other medicine and pour it into the water system everybody would be concerned and say the water is contaminated. That's whether it has any effect on it or not they wouldn't want to assume it, even if it didn't do anything but cure headaches. Somebody would say I don't want my headache cured I want to make my own choices. I want to go to my doctor, I want to go to my pharmacy, and I want to get the appropriate amount of medicine that is made for my height, weight ,and body makeup.
You don't get that argument when you get your fluoride from the tap water that you drink. It also assumes that everybody drinks the same amount of water and they brush their teeth with the same amount of time. The data supports that there's a reduction in cavities and communities that have fluoridated water. Any doctor that wants to support that is relying on some science that is at the very least dated I think or incredibly convenient. I don't think just the ADA is a reason to say I'm gonna take a poison, put it into my water or put it into my toothpaste. The reason being is because I think every one of my clients that come to me and ask me to help, would have asked their parents can you please be more sensitive about how you feel about fluoride.
Lasting Affects of Fluoride
Fluorosis would not exist if it wasn't for fluoride, and these people would have dramatically different lives. I only see a small amount of cases, but this is a real case and the changes are profound and the choices would have been so much more appreciated if they could have just had these choices earlier. When you're new , you've got a family, and you've coming up with these kind of situations you work around it and tell something happens. Generally that's not going to happen in your 20s, probably won't happen in new 30s, you're lucky if you can afford it in your 40s ,and by the time you're in your 50s you're looking at different choices. All of which the dentists profit from guys.
I hope you enjoy the vlog this week and don't forget to subscribe. I hope to bring you more videos that I think make a difference. It truly has an effect that will change you to some degree. I'll see you next week let me know what you think about this video, and let me know what you think about fluoride.
Torri, Bil Watson how are you doing?
Good, how are you?
I'm sitting here working on your case. I have it here in front of me and the case is a little more sensitive than I thought, I think you have a situation called Fluorosis but I'm not a doctor. It's most likely called Fluorosis. Do you have a soft enamel on your teeth, the cover of your teeth feel soft?
Um, sometimes yeah.
Yeah I want to do some more things on this case than what I normally do if you don't mind.
First thing I need to do is, I want to give you some bleaching trays that we can put serum on your teeth that has some anti-microbials in it that should help clean these teeth. You wear them just like bleaching trays. Have you ever seen anybody wear bleaching trays before?
Yeah I've actually tried.
On this before picture how long ago was it taken?
Oh it was probably a year ago ,I'm not really sure.
I'm with you.
I could send you a more recent one. That was just I had a picture saved on my phone.
Ramping Up The Expectations
Yes, if you can send me a recent one it would help me a ton. Let me tell you what else I'm thinking about doing. I'm thinking about going ahead and trying to make you a bottom one at the same time and just don't worry about paying for it. It looks like if your mom is doing it, and you got a brand-new baby it's Christmas time l just don't tell anybody okay.
I'm sorry I'm just so happy.
Well you just need this. You need this a lot, you need someone to be decent to you.
I appreciate you taking so much time.
Well we're just going to get it perfect, it means the world to me it means. That new baby needs a mama that doesn't mind taking her to play dates with big smiles. We're going to take this case personally I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to build a couple different shades.
Thank you so much I really can't tell you how much..
Well don't thank me till we're right, we still have a lot of work to do. This is a case I'm proud to do it's a favor to me. Tell your family thank you the world, and get me some new pictures okay?
Thank you so much merry Christmas.
Merry Christmas to you too, thank you Goodbye.
The After Pictures
Hey what are you doing Kiddo? Hey, yours look so good and you sent me pictures right away. I can't tell you how impressed I am with the pictures you look unreal. Perfect! It looks like you just got your life back.
I'm seeing a lot of my friends from high school tonight and I'm so excited. My boyfriend saw them and he loves them, and he wants some now.
These pictures tell the truth. The second pair, you haven't tried those on yet have you?
No I haven't.
There the new translucent color. They're a little bit softer and they reflect light. They are our most expensive PressOn Veneer that we have, so let's try those on now and then you gotta send me pictures. They're thinner! It's a sleeve, they're more flexible too. The way they're made is when you push them up they get tighter at the top.
Yeah I can tell they are tight.
And you should love the color.
Wow that's amazing, oh yeah these fit amazing.
Oh my God.
I'm so excited to wear these and show these to people. Thank you so much you guys did so good thank you.
You don't know how nervous I was. Could you tell how nervous I was ?
Yeah I had a feeling.
You kind of needed this to be perfect for you.
Yeah and y'all made it perfect thank you so much!
I knew that if I just sent out the tops like you ordered, it would only be like going to a party half dressed.
You're exactly right, I thought the same thing as soon as I put them in. I'm so glad you sent me the bottom ones.
How A Smile Makeover Changed Her Life
Are you okay?
Yeah sorry I'm just emotional. I've been debating on going back to school, and I told my mom a few minutes ago after I put them in I'm so ready to do this now.
You can do anything now kid. I'm looking at these pictures that you just sent me, and that little girl can do anything.
I wish I could hug you right now.
The Reason We Are In Business
The fact that you sent me these pictures, I like the one with the tongue out that's the best tongue picture I've got all year. I can't tell you how excited I am. I know these are gonna be the best pictures of your life. When I saw your pictures it was no longer about what we do for a living anymore it's just what we do. It wasn't about money for me, it was about giving her what she needed, and the tools that she needed to be a mom. The pictures that you sent me are amazing! They are from a really happy person.
To think that I had anything to do with that, I don't know how dentists literally have the know-how to help somebody and don't. When I saw this there was just no way I was just going to make the tops without making the bottoms.
I feel like I can do so much more now, like I'm not holding myself back.
I am so glad that you sent me the pictures in advance. When I see pictures I could make a lot of things happen. If you hadn't sent me those pictures, I wouldn't have known what I was building. Even though I tried to get them out by Christmas, I got them out as fast as I could. But when you gave me the time to be me, I knew that I had a smile that needed to be built. When can you send me some pictures of the new smile? If I have any more questions I'll call you back. But tell me it's a great way to end the old year and start the new year.
Exactly it's amazing thank you so much!
Gratitude Through Social Media
Thanks to you all I've been so busy this week. I accepted a business opportunity, visited the school I'll be attending, and made new friends along the way in less than a week. That's what you helped me accomplish by giving me my smile back. I can't thank you enough for changing my life.
