I have been using your system for about a week now and I am definitely impressed. I was an avid flosser-and always got “stuff” from between my teeth. Since I’ve been using your system, flossing is downright boring. Nothing is between my teeth!
Having had this experience, I plan to begin talking with my dental friends. They are probably going to be resistant to the concept so I am still reading the book to get my info straight.
I have an additional question. I have been using a product called MI Paste Plus-it’s a Recaldent product that my dentist recommended when my teeth became sensitive. Are you aware of Recaldent? How would it fit into your program (translation-I just bought 10 tubes of it and would like to use it-I think it really helped the sensitivity, and my dentist reports that my teeth are “harder” since I’ve been using it)?
I am delighted that you are using this system of oral care.
If you stay dedicated to the program (clean brushes, correct products, adequate xylitol) you will find your oral health not only continues to improve but that it does this year after year.
This system provides sustainable oral health – unlike so many other “quick fixes”.
Sensodyne is a classic example of a quick fix.
If you have read my book you will know why this is the case. It is because Sesodyne behaves like putty to fix a hole in drywall.
Sensodyne can block up holes in teeth -( which can make them feel better) – but this “treatment” does nothing to permanently fix and control the problems.
I hate to tell you but I classify MI paste/Recaldent in the same category (although for different reasons.)
Recaldent was “developed” as an answer to a problem.
There was a need to use up a surplus of dried milk powder – taken out of the “marketplace” to stabilize milk prices.
The oral care companies knew that milk is cariostatic (stops decay) and helps re-mineralize teeth.
They began to try and incorporate it into toothpaste and rinses – many years ago.
As far as I know the study results were never very good – but the ADA Paffenbarger Foundation holds the intellectual property on the product – so they are very excited about endorsing and promoting it!
Milk and good organic dairy products would probably be much more effective for your oral health (but I have NEVER heard the ADA endorse these!Ha!)
Xylitol and dilute fluoride rinsing with ACT probably remineralize your teeth far more effectively than using MI paste ( but I cannot prove this – I don’t have the money to run such a study).
Personally I would use my system – don’t mix and match.
Keep the paste you purchased in a bag – ready to take it to your next appointment.
Don’t tell your dentist anything at the start.
Wait for them to SING THE PRAISES OF YOUR BEAUTIFUL AND HEALTHY MOUTH.
Then ask to return the MI paste for a full refund.
If they do not do this – I will refund any out of pocket expenses you have purchasing the system products from Zellies!!
I guess it just frustrates me that milk has never been touted as a health food for teeth – at least not until it was sold in expensive little tubes with an ADA endorsement!!
The public lose out all the time.
Zellies wants to change all that!
