Hi Dr. Ellie,
If i’m brushing my daughter’s teeth with ACT, how much should i use? one drop or two? so i should stop using all toothpaste and just use ACT right?
I don’t have great teeth, and my husband, in spite of flossing and brushing with sonic care twice a day, still gets cavities..also there are history of bad teeth on both sides of the family…I hope she is not doomed..I feel so bad for her that this is happening, my heart just breaks everything I think about this…
She likes the mints and gum very much, so it’s been no problem getting her to take these..also she drinks the water with granular xylitol throughout the day so I think I can get her to take in at least 6/7 grams of xylitol a day without much difficulties.
thanks again for everything..
You must start to think of this – not as an inevitable ” bad teeth run in the family” but as AN INFECTION – i.e. germs!!! If we could see them it would be easy to make people do what I recommend! The problem is these germs float about in saliva – and this is why we pass them to each other.
Xylitol is a natural way TO ERADICATE these germs – wipe them out – keep them gone!! Your daughter and all the family can change the outcome – just need a little care.
Yes a drop of ACT can be used to brush her teeth. Do this morning and night. You and your husband should get on this program – use Closys , Crest and ACT etc. – see the webiste for details. There is no reason for anyone to have cavities – this is a preventable disease!
Good luck and please be encouraged. I am sorry that xylitol is “news” to you – the rest of the world has known about xylitol for decades – even centuries in parts of the world!
