I am addicted to sugar. I love everything about the sweet sensation of candy. I recently visited my dentist and he told me that I have a cavity in every tooth. Are my teeth doomed? Can I get rid of cavities without having root canals done? I was reading your website and you said that certain products such as xylitol can starve the bacteria. Can these bacteria just die without fillings or root canals? I’m constantly flossing and brushing after almost every piece of food entered in my mouth except during work hours. I used that listerine mouthwash but read that it gives a risk for cancer. I’m rinsing in ACT which is alcohol free. My main question is: how the heck can I get rid of these cavities?
Hi sugar addict! The best news for you is that sugar is not a problem!
If you read my website or books, you will discover the truth about teeth. The only way that sugar hurts teeth – is that it feeds plaque bacteria – making them multiply, sticky and produce acids – (which dissolve your teeth).
You have to starve these bacteria, de-stick from your teeth and stop them from producing acids. Xylitol can do all these things BUT you need at least one teaspoon of xylitol each day – or it will not work.
If you have 6 grams of xylitol each day for six months – you will eradicate the harmful plaque bacteria that cause cavities. If you follow my directions and use the mouth rinses in the order I recommend – you will stop the cavities getting worse and possibly reverse the damage to your teeth.
I cannot make promises because I have not seen your teeth – but it is possible to reverse cavities – sometimes completely. The routine I recommend cannot be altered – and it will not work if you change or leave out parts of the system. If you use the Listerine in the way I recommend – it will be safe and will help heal your teeth.
Candy is not the problem – mouth acidity and disease bacteria are the problem.
Make sure you clean your toothbrush every day – and think about the people with whom you share food or kiss.
This is a contagious, transmissible disease! Get them all on xylitol!
You can add a teaspoon of granular xylitol to a bottle of water and sip it through the day. This will give you 4 grams of xylitol. You can eat a couple of Zellies mints or gum after things that you eat or drink – particularly sweet or acidic things. Try the fruit Zellies – they are delicious!
Good luck and let me know how things go: If you stick with my system – maybe you can WOW your dentist at your next visit!
