Dear Dr. Ellie:
Hello, and thanks for your information on Xylitol and it’s benefits.
I was wondering if you could provide specific examples of gums that contain it, mints, etc. that you mentioned in your article entitled “Clean White Teeth”. My specific situation involves snoring at night with my mouth open, and I awake in the morning with my teeth and gums very dry, and my teeth feeling like they’re going to break off. Recently, in fact, there was some minor cracking of my front teeth (of all places…) Luckily at this point this has occurred on the underside of the tooth, but I’m concerned about further damage.
Considering the above, if you have any further information such as some sort of ointment, oil, mouthpiece or whatever that might protect my teeth during the night it would be much appreciated.
Thank you for your time in reading this and any information that you might provide.
I would be happy to talk with you on the phone but we would need to arrange a time to do this.
In the meantime I would suggest you read the information about the Complete Mouth Care System that I recommend and follow these directions especially using ACT last thing before sleeping. Eating a Zellie mint (either fruit or mint flavor work just as well) during the night to help moisten your mouth or put some granular xylitol into water and drink this if your mouth is dry during the night.
The Zellies mints seem to be the most effective, and I have had many accolades from people suffering with dry mouth.
Here is the link to the system:
and a free down loadable booklet:
Good luck and let me know if you need more help. Be sure to follow the instructions and use only the products suggested in the order suggested any alteration of any kind can disable the system.
