Original ACT vs. Restore

Dear Dr. Ellie,

I have just started your Clean White Teeth program. However, I have made one mistake (so far) and am wondering how serious it is. I bought the “restoring” Act. Should I use it up, or buy plain Act right away.

Also, how will Act affect my crowns and facings? Will fluoide remove the finish or etch the porcelain in any way?

Thank you for any help you can provide.


Dear JN,

Sorry, but I am not an advocate of the Restore ACT. It contains alcohol and is a different formula than the original .

Give the Restore to a man (your husband, brother or some healthy young male) who will probably have lots of alkaline healthy saliva anyway.

Women need all the help they can get and I would only recommend the old formula ACT.

Best of luck,
Ellie Phillips, DDS

  • I have just found your site. I am so glad that I did. I am a 65 year old female. I have gone to the dentist 2 times in my life up until just recently. The thing that took me, as I have never had a cavity, was a very sore mouth. Ulcers under my tongue and on the sides of my tongue. My whole mouth was sore. It has been like this and getting worse for about 21/2 months.The dentist told me that I needed a deep gum cleaning. So I did that which cost me well over $6oo.00. I don’t know if that is a lot or not since I am very new to going to the dentist.After two rounds of antibod. my mouth was still sore. It is slowly but surely getting a little better each day.Thank God. I never want this to happen again. I was told to floss and brush after each meal.I have read some of this blog and I want your opinion of what I should do. What do you recommend for me to keep my gums healthy and where can I get it? I would appreciate it so much if you can help me. My e-mail address is jimandconniemc@yahoo.com if that would be better for you. I will continue to read you whole blog in the meantime so I can learn all I can. Thank you so much. Connie Mc.
