Dear Dr. Ellie,
Thank you for being so caring and concerned about the health of people’s teeth, and for all your work on this. I found your book when looking for a solution to my many small teeth problems (although the dentist could find nothing wrong, except the tooth at the back is possibly cracked although x-ray showed nothing).
My question is: is there any hope for a tooth that is sick at the root? The symptoms are a puffy gum in one spot, which sorta comes and goes and pain when I press on the gum where the root is. The only evidence on the x-ray was a slight “shadow” on one part of the root near the top. This is a filled tooth. Let me know if you need more information.
I was holding out hope for it, because of how it all started and I am thinking that the underlying health to that area of my mouth is getting better, so maybe these symptomatic issues would change too.

There is nothing to loose if you start my system and use it carefully for a period of time – then re-evaluate this tooth – or tooth area of your mouth.
The use of xylitol with the mouth rinses that I recommend will cure and stop any cavities or decay that may be involved.
This system will cure and stop any periodontal issues that may be causing a problem.
I doubt that my system will correct the cracked tooth problem – if this really IS the problem.
My advice – get on my system and use it EXACTLY as recommended.
I recommend using a Zellies toothbrush – and remember to keep it clean and dry between uses.
I would wait before you do anything else – and I would be very interested to hear the outcome of this story!
