At the recommendation of my dentist, I have begun the mouth care program you recommend. (I also have my sis on it!)
I have read recently in health newsletters that one should wait about one hour before brushing. Sometimes this means I fall asleep and wake up four hours later to brush.
Does using the Closys prior to brushing negate the wait — since it neutralizes the acidic nature of the mouth. How about I have had something that is highly acidic — e.g. lemonade, soda, etc?
Thank you so much.
You are covered from any acidity by using my system of rinses – in the order that I recommend.
Closys is a pH balanced mouth rinse – This is a great pre-rinse – before brushing.
It gives your mouth “an oxygen bath” and also stops the danger of brushing in an acidic mouth.
Trying to wait half an hour – is not really a solution from this acidity danger – (besides many women have acidic saliva).
How long do you need to “wait” if your OWN saliva is acidic? Ha!
This is why – in my opinion – it is only safe way to brush teeth after using Closys rinse.
I drink wine at night – then Closys – before I brush.
If you are sipping lemonade or soda over an extended period of time – you may want to “cut” the long period of acidity by nibbling something that will alkalize your mouth and be tooth – friendly.
Salted nuts, cheese or dairy, raw veggies and dip – or xylitol in some form ( Zellies fruit mints are great after lemonade).
Enjoy these snacks during your “extended acid-drink time”.
Extended long periods of mouth acidity – especially with citrus drinks – can damage the healthy protective film in your mouth.
I think you already understand all this – but I wanted to double check you had the full story!
Thanks so much for your question,
