OraMedia - Dental Self Sufficiency Forum

Greetings!

    I've moved the discussion from the original Yahoo Groups to this location in order to attempt the categorization of discussion a little better.
    The purpose of the OraMedia site was to disseminate the works of Dr. Robert O. Nara (DDS)( see 'Freedom from Dental Disease' ).  It would be best to become acquainted with some of his work and points of view on oral health before getting involved here.  In addition, Dr. Nara wrote a couple of very popular books on the subject, 'Money by the Mouthful' and 'How to Become Dentally Self Sufficient.'
    At the very least, please read 'The 7 Factors Transcript,' which covers the 7 factors or principles Dr. Nara set up as guides for keeping our teeth healthy for life.  This is a transcript of the last speech he gave with the National Health Federation in San Francisco, 1986, and covers the following:

1.    Nutrition
2.    Frame of Reference
3.    Options
4.    Knowledge
5.    Understanding the biological balance
6.    Taking Action
7.    Money

    The discussions, therefore, will be broken down into those categories, so if you are going to write about Vitamin D, as it relates to oral health, then post in the 'Nutrition' Subject thread and so on.
    This interface has a search function, so you are encouraged to use it, as time goes by, to see if your question to the group has already been covered.  If you want to view the subjects in a given category, click on "Switch to Threaded Style" just below here.

Thank you,

chipped tooth

My son chipped 2 of his permanat teeth tonight, and we're not sure what to do about it. Our dentist office is closed for Thanksgiving. Several of the website I went to mentioned root canals, which I believe are dangerous, so I'm not sure we want to go with conventional treatment, anyway, though we will call in the morning and see what they have to say. It doesn't look bad at all, but one is sensitve to cold, which sounds to me like to nerve is exposed. Any advice on keeping out infection until we can get treatment, and also how to treat it. Thank you.
