Dear Dr. Ellie:
I don’t have an answer for you because my recommendations are based on years and years of experience with the use of exact products – the ones I recommend!
What I recommend has been able to help -no matter what dental problems exist – and my system has been able to stop damage and reverse cavities and gum disease.
If you mix and match products – you are on your own – doing your own experiment!
The problem is that you first need to witness what “health” feels like – otherwise you will not be able to compare results from another product.
If you really want to try something different – I recommend you use what I recommend exactly in the way I recommend for about 6 months.
Then do your experiment with other products -( if you want to!)
Years ago I tried a multitude of new products myself – (pastes, new titanium brushes, natural toothpastes, xylitol rinses etc.) searching to upgrade what I recommend.
I was unable to find any better routine – much as I tried! I even damaged my teeth quite severely on some occasions.
There were several times when my husband would find me with my hand over my mouth saying “what have I done?”
His reply was always ” I thought your system cured everything” – .
Fortunately it seems to be true.
On each occasion when my teeth hurt or were sensitive – within a week of using my system I was back with my comfortable, shiny teeth again.
BEWARE – many products are almost corrosive of teeth and some very abrasive.
Only when you know what HEALTH feels like can you tell what UNBALANCED or WRONG feels like.
I don’t try things any more!
As I get older I am more and more grateful for the wonderful oral health that I enjoy!
I can’t face the pain and damage that I have caused myself from time to time trying new products.
This is why I don’t experiment any more.
Of course you can if you like! Just be careful – and my suggestion is try what I recommend FIRST otherwise you will not have anything to compare the “feel” with!
Hope this helps you!
