I do understand that genetics also plays a big role in this, along with certain types of medications, and so on. The food & drinks we consume can definitely have a major impact, as well. For the most part, if you eat right and brush your teeth every day, you should rarely have to go to the dentist, in my opinion. I also don't like how they constantly radiate people with oral x-rays any chance they can get during their bi-annual visits. Sure, a few here and there may not be so bad, but I wouldn't want to increase the risk of having thyroid problems either, as it is well established that radiation and your thyroid doesn't mix very well. If you feel the need, ask for the thyroid guard when receiving oral x-rays. I'm not talking about the vest thingy they often use; I mean the separate one that goes over your neck.
Anyway, I just thought I'd bring this up. Personally, I try to stay away from those crazy dentists! Ha! If I can go a few decades without seeing one, that's fine with me! So, what do you think? Is there anybody else out there that thinks frequent dentist visits can cause more harm than good?
