Dear Dr. Ellie:
For a bulimia nervosa patient, how would the Complete Mouth care System work? Should after every episode of vomiting a mouth wash of fluoride would be advice? or rinsing with baking soda would be enough? And will the mouth care system help prevent dental damaging in bulimia nervosa patients?
I would never recommend rinsing with baking soda. Many people who use baking soda have gum recession. I don’t know why it is almost like a sensitivity reaction and the gums just painlessly disappear. If you are looking for something easy alkaline and in your pantry make a solution of salt in water.
I would suggest either:
Chew some 100 percent xylitol chewing gum (Zellies mint or fruit gum check out the flavors) or have a Zellies breath mint (fruit or mint). Zellies gum and mints will immediately and safely alkalize your mouth, protect your teeth and help repair any damage from the acidity.
OR use the Complete Mouth Care System from start (Closys) to finish (ACT)
The rinsing routine should be used twice or three times a day: no more.
The best time to use the routine is before bed at night and when you have time to leave the ACT residue on your teeth for at least half an hour.
Good luck I think you will find Zellies mints and gum very useful and the Complete Mouth Care System used twice a day will help preserve the health of your teeth especially if they are stained or sensitive the system will help whiten them and make them less sensitive in about a week.
Dental Health for Everyone!
