Thank you for the reassuring talk. We are now at 16 days since starting xylitol.
“Cleaning” teeth is just a word that people use – the idea is to “apply” the correct agent to the tooth surface.
For a baby with cavities – the best agent is a tiny amount of the ACT rinse – just a tiny, tiny amount will make a big big difference.
Imagine these cavities are scratches on skin.
If we can get a scab to form – we do not want to “scratch it off” – or this can delay healing.
The xylitol is healing the “flesh” or deeper parts of these teeth.
The ACT is encouraging the “skin” of these teeth to grow back over to heal the wound.
This is why you need both the xylitol and the ACT for tooth healing.
You are on the right path – keep going!!!
