Why do you say this is a myth. I realize you may be right. I had decay in a canine tooth. Finally I got a bad toothache and went to the dentist. He had to do a root canal, but there was a lot of calcified material in the root space. I wonder what would have happened if I had been unable to get a root canal, would this calcification have eventually filled the root space? I was taking calcium and other mineral supplements on a regular basis. Have they found recalcified teeth in primitive skeletons?

Your body is capable of continual recalcification of teeth. Why doesn't it happen?
1) most toothpastes contain glycerine that coats teeth and prevents calcification that is naturally applied to the outside of a tooth.
2) it requires a diet or supplementation that produces enamel.
If you have further interest, here is a link to a product sold on Amazon as a supplement. You must also switch to brushing with either non-glycerine soap as a substitute for toothpaste, or try very, very hard to find a toothpaste without glycerine.
Good enamel to you!
After this, your homework is to determine why root canals are bad for you...
