That was such a great call that you did tonight! Thank you!!!! I was hoping to ask you a few questions if that would be okay.
Ever since I was little I have had problems with my teeth. I have had a tremendous number of cavities, crowns, etc. I had all of my amalgams removed in 2007 which was really difficult to recover from.
I loved everything you had to say tonight…it made so much sense.
Would you say the best thing to do from this point forward would be to eat xylitol, keep my toothbrush clean, try to keep my mouth slightly alkaline, etc.?
I recently had a crown put in and the gums around the crown became really inflamed and it was so painful. I have had to floss that area after every meal because food gets stuck in that area. Do you think I need to get a second opinion on the crown? I don’t know if it is the right size for the area that it is in or not.
Anything you have to share would be greatly appreciated. And I look forward to hearing the next call that you are going to do in a few weeks.
Thanks so much for writing to me!
I had a huge response from this call on Wednesday – and I have been trying to get back to everyone ever since midnight on Wednesday!
I think you have digested most of the information and obviously understand the need for xylitol, improved toothbrush hygiene and how mouth alkalinity will aid the development of healthy biofilm.
I feel that the system of mouth rinses I recommend could change your oral health considerably.
Here is a link to the products that I recommend:
You may be curious about the ingredients in some of these products and I understand this.
I am happy to consult with you on the phone to describe in more detail why you need these specific products.
I can link you to my blog at www.DrEllie.com or you can also read my book which describes the system in detail and has an entire chapter on my opinions ( very specific) about the use of Fluoride.
I do not know of any other method that can clean and improve oral health as quickly and efficiently as the system that I recommend.
Perhaps the best idea is to give my system a try for a short time and see what you think.
If you have specific questions – I can try to answer in an e-mail but generally a full discussion WHY you need these products and WHY you must view them in context – needs a live discussion on the phone!
Let me know how I can best help you,
Thanks again for your message,
