New to system

Dr Ellie,

I have just found your website and find it of great interest to me. Questions:

Must I use a “special” toothbrush or may I continue to use my Braun electric with 2 minute timer? I use the full 2 minutes and more sometimes.

How do I clean my toothbrush with Closys before brushing?

I have mostly crowns on top and mostly natural teeth on the bottom. Will your system be of benefit to me?

Thank you so much for any help provided.

Hi JN,

“Welcome” to Zellies family! I am so glad your found our site.
Make sure you check the Complete Mouth Care page on the website

First Things First
Dental problems are all related infection similar to an infection on your finger. If you were going to get your finger to heal first you control the germs and then nature will heal. It is the same with your teeth and gums.The first priority is getting rid of bacteria. Eating Zellies 100 percent xylitol mints and gum will get rid your teeth and mouth of sticky plaque bacteria.

If you eat them after meals they will also help to strengthen and whiten your natural teeth.

Toothbrush Question
Any toothbrush is fine and many people prefer an electric one. The most important thing is that you clean your brush every day otherwise you will be replanting bacteria from yesterday that have grown and developed on your brush (yuck!)

Listerine is good for this. I suggest putting a small amount of Listerine in a cup. Swish the head of you toothbrush in the liquid, then rinse the brush under running water. The brush should be stored somewhere away from the toilet and in the open air. Covering the brush or hiding it in a damp cupboard will not achieve what you are looking for. I suggest some people keep their toothbrushes in the kitchen or bedroom in place of the bathroom.

Closys is a rinse to use before you brush your teeth. You will find the Crest paste foams up well and does a good cleaning. Rinse the paste off with the Listerine and the Listerine off with the ACT.

Let me know if you have any other questions I am here to help,
