Q: I was interested in trying out your system. I have to fillings that are pretty large located as an MOD on my 54 and 64 (primary 6 year molars … yep, I never lost them..lol) . Anyway, I am currently at the end of my journey for ortho, and would like to start using your system to keep these two little teeth as long as possible. I currently have been using the crest you prescribe, and then rinse after with Listerine, followed by fluorinse (it’s a daily fluoride rinse from oral b….is that okay to be using? Because I can’t find ACT in Canada). Also, We do not have closys here either. Is there something manufactured in Canada that is comparable and as effective as closys.
P.S. My fillings have been feeling higher lately, is it possible that my teeth are starting to repair and pushing the filling out?
Thank you so much for all your help.
I am not sure why your teeth would be feeling higher – this would be more likely something to do with the ortho tooth movement you have been working on with your orthodontist.
My system will look after your teeth and your gums.
Don’t forget you need xylitol – plenty of it for the system to work.
Xylitol makes plaque slippery – so the rinses can wash it away!!

Closys in UK is called Retardex – and that may be the same in Canada.
You can find the company on the internet (ROWPAR) and ask them what to do.
Amazon does sell to Canada I think.
We had a blog post about this from last year, here is the link: http://askdrellie.blogspot.com/p/ellies-system-other-countries.html.
Let us know how everything works out for you.
Enjoy your teeth and your ultimate oral health – from now and into the future!
