They did use a combination in some filling stuff that included mercury.
Yeah a mix of mercury and other metals, as far as lead, I don't know in what years it was used, and for how long but fairly sure it was used, the same way lead pipes were used before copper
Next time you go to the dentist you can ask him if lead fillings were used before in the past, definitely not anymore though, if he is a young generation dentist, he might not know
I eat citrus. Canned grapefruit. I am addicted to it.
I drink coke.
You are a dentist's dream - they should thank you for keeping them on the job
You basically described the worst habits for tooth health, Addicted to canned grapefruit, that's very unusual, well, it's better than other food addictions, though the coke, that's bad, hopefully you don't drink the whole 2L at a time - I know people who literally down a few 2L coke bottles - I mean I can down a 500ml water bottle in under 3 seconds, though never tried it with coke. I haven't had soda in a very long time. You can use Coca Cola to clean drain lines and in some cases unclog them, thanks to the phosphoric acid in them, the same acid that dissolves your enamel and teeth
