Anyone's Teeth Ever Get Better While Living Abroad?

Postby Wolfeye » Fri Jun 17, 2016 5:19 am

Hey, everyone. Just was curious: Have any of you ever had your teeth get better when you were living in another country? Like pits filling in/remineralizing?

Here in Japan, yes. Much better and cheaper than Europe.

The Japanese National Health Insurance (all Japanese nationals and every foreigner holding a visa of one year or longer is fully insured) pays for dental work of any kind. This includes bridges over missing teeth, ceramic crown over a tooth etc. etc.

There are many dentists here in Tokyo and waiting time is almost zero.

Cut your sugar intake and notice the difference.

Also mine seem better since I switched to fluoride-free toothpaste. Fluoride allows governments to control you all.

Are you serious? I guess I know where I want to teach English after I get my TESOL bachelor's degree. I need a lot of dental work.

After living abroad since 2003, no. My teeth and gums have suffered and I had to get them treated in the US.

Any real dentist can do a tooth cleaning. I get that every six months now, but prior to that, my teeth suffered and I got a bothced procedure that it took 3K dollars to fix.

See, I don't really need much of anything done- I just don't want them to get worse. I understand that it's a nutritional thing (you need enough minerals & the vitamins to absorb those minerals, plus not having too much stuff that blocks it off or makes a drain on things- phytic acid is in a lot of grains & does the former, sugar throws the body's pH out of whack & the body sucks things from your teeth/bones to balance things out). I've been using those cod liver & butter oil pills with eating eggshells, but I don't know if it's working (I hear it takes about two months to start seeing an effect).

Interesting. I thought that you could have gone to good dentists abroad to do better and cheaper job at what you came back to the USA to get fixed for so much more.
It's time to expatriate to evade your fate; it's time to expatriate before the barn door permanently closes on "US" sheep.
