Dear Dr. Ellie:
Hello, I’m embarking on a plan to try your complete mouth care routine. Can you be more specific about when to use all these rinses? Also, are samples of the gum and mints available? I’d rather try them before I decide what flavor to buy. One of my sons has a cavity between two baby teeth molars. Even though they will fall out, the dentist says they need to be filled. Especially considering that we have no insurance, I’d love to know whether or not it is possible to “reverse” the progress of the cavity. Can you give some advice in this manner? Thank you so much,
“The Complete Mouth Care System” is designed for adult teeth anyone with a full mouth of adult teeth will benefit. If you wanted a booklet to read first just let me know where to send it.
Using this system over time will help their teeth heal, become healthier and transform to whiter, shinier and cleaner.
I would suggest starting to use the system in the mid-teen years earlier if braces are going to be necessary. It is great to have strong and clean teeth before putting in braces or retainers.
The rinse system should be used morning and night preferably just before going to bed so the last rinse will be the last thing to touch your teeth before sleeping. T
he Introductory kit has everything you need along with clear instructions and samples of Zellies mints and gum to try.
Once you have used the kit you can figure out the least expensive way to buy refills of the products. You must match the products carefully don’t be tempted by fake imitation or be confused by look alike rinses.
I do not know the age of your son. Children up to the age of 15 often have baby teeth in their jaws. If your son is a teen with cavities he could start using the complete system. If he is younger at least use ACT and Zellies regularly each day and make your son understand that he must use both the dilute fluoride in ACT with xylitol in Zellies for maximum healing to occur. In all cases I would recommend Regular Crest Toothpaste.
Younger than 6 years you will need to rely on xylitol and I would be happy to send you a small booklet called Xylitol for Children’s Teeth to help you. Please let me know if this answers your question.
Thanks so much,
