White Spots on Teeth

Posted May 06 2009 1:33pm 1 Comment
Hi Dr. Ellie,

Thank you very much for your professional explanations, described in your email.

Reading continuously in details your
websiteI found that one possible cause of the white spots can be dry mouth (as result of the PH etc etc).

For your further information my daughter between the age 2-6 years old often had problem with ear infection. She sleeps with her mouth open -could this cause the white spot?

Regarding your offer to use
COMPLETE MOUTH CARE SYSTEMI tried to buy it via internet but there is not in the store for the moment . Do you offered me another treatment possibility or you suggest me to wait for theCOMPLETE MOUTH CARE SYSTEM?

Appreciating your comments and suggestion , I wish you all the best to your family and your professional career


Hi M -

I think there is a good chance that the ear infections and sleeping with an open mouth are to blame for the white spots.

I would not worry too much to find the reason - in the future consider xylitol and a dilute fluoride rinse to help mineralize these areas.

If xylitol is not available think carefully about ending meals with tooth protective foods - like cheese or milk to drink.

If you continue to give her fluoride supplements - make sure that she swishes the liquid around her teeth - because the benefit to teeth is when this fluoride is in contact with teeth - not from ingesting/eating this product.

I would have to say that while this is a good explanation for the acceleration of the development of these whitespots to become visible enough to notice, was caused by this.


I would say the root cause is fluorosis.  I've been doing some reading up on the subject considering both my fiancee and I have stopped drinking tap water outright, and we've noticed a few things... for starters our joints don't get as sore as quickly, and another noticeable sign (considering it's been many months), we both have stopped getting white spots on our nails.  Surely some can be blamed on injury and considering my fiancee works in a kitchen it would make a bit of sense that he has a spot or two,and those are at least a month old given how nails grow.


You can blame mottled teeth on that crap they put in your water, this nail thing is similar to that as chemical fluoride is a deadly toxin, interfering with the way that your body builds bones.  Fluoride is bad, bad stuff, and if I were you I'd insist on natural fluoride and not the chemical waste byproduct that they all seem to use in your water and at the dentist.  Either way, after hardened with fluoride the chemical make up of your teeth will be forever changed and it will be weaker than the original.
