I am so happy to stumble across your work– I knew there must be something I could do to help heal my super sensitive teeth. My problem is anything sweet results in severe tooth pain turning into severe headaches. I have had to stop eating all fruit– so I cannot figure out how I can use the xylitol without really severe pain. I am hoping you have some advice for me– thanks so much for your work.
I would like to know a bit more about your tooth sensitivity so I could tailor a specific answer for you.
For a quick response – I would advise that you put xylitol crystals into water and sip this between meals.
I would also put you immediately on my complete mouth care system of rinses with the EXACT products that I recommend.
The only variance would be that you could dilute the Listerine 50% with water – until the sensitivity goes away.
Make sure if you use the rinses – do not interspace with water between the rinses!!
Go from Closys to brush – rinse the toothpaste off with the Listerine and then immediately to the ACT rinse.
Do this twice a day – no more. !!! Go on a flossing holiday.
Get started with a good diet of Omega-3 foods, and fermented whole milk dairy ( like organic yogurt) with fresh pineapple mixed into the yogurt.
A probiotic may also be helpful. This dietary information is to help you GROW a protein/healthy bacteria layer over your teeth – to help heal the gums and teeth.
DO NOT use any peroxide or baking soda – in any kind of product!!!
In about two or three days you will probably be able to start using Zellies xylitol gum and mints.
