That's just one of the many encouraging messages Artemis imparts with her advice to help avoid "drill, fill and bill" dentists. After all, who wants to be tortured by orthodontic contraptions, antiseptic ethers and the "taste of fluoride, metal and foam"? with solid science and footnotes, Artemis' book aims to make it easier to avoid the dentist through the practice of preventative measures, the use of essential plant extracts and an understanding of non-Western philosophies, such as adjusting bodily imbalances instead of merely treating symptoms. (Still, she provides online resources and a thorough list of questions to ask prospective, preferably holistic dentists.) Conditioned by our deeply embedded societal distinction between dentists and doctors, we to separate the mouth from the body, Artemis says. Yet, the same nutritional choices we consider to keep physically fit can directly affect our teeth, which Artemis compares to a coral reef: Our teeth are vast and intricate like coral, while our "super saliva" provides and ocean of alkalinity. She also depicts deteriorating gums as a turtleneck for teeth that slacks into a crew and, eventually, into a cowl. Primarily, she concentrates on feeding teeth from the inside with the same awareness we show when brushing. She points out that decay is not caused by sugar touching the teeth, but by being in your diet. In "A Visit to the Dentist in the Year 2022," the author theorizes that common, contemporary dental practices - and certainly mercury-based fillings - will be as outdated as the bloodletting dentists performed centuries ago. Artemis' well balanced, well-researched book credibly encourages readers to take control of their own dental health.Plenty to chew on in this stimulating dental compendium.
