Topical Antibiotics

Hi Dr Ellie – first of all I just wanted to say thank you for all the great information you provide. I started on your system about five days ago and am very excited and hopeful.

I am a 52 year old female and had some deep cleaning (root planing) done several months back, along with some topical antibiotic treatments. When I went in for a checkup 3 months ago the dental hygienist cleaned and checked the pockets and once again wanted to apply topical antibiotic treatments. They are very expensive so I only had her do the 3 worst gums.

My questions is; I am going for another cleaning tomorrow and would like to know your opinion on the topical antibiotics. Do I really need them or can I clear out that bacteria myself using your protocol?

Thanks so much for your time and again for all the wonderful information.


Hi P,

My system has healed pocketing up to 8-9 mm with no additional therapies.

This is unheard of in the dental world – so don’t expect to get any encouragement from your health professionals.

Even my partner in my office (who has witnessed these events) shakes his head at me – because treatment would have generated thousands of dollars – and I send patients out with $50 worth of product to use.

I am in the process of trying to take pathogen tests to SHOW these improvements in a visual way – with results that cannot be contested.

This involves taking an Oral DNA test – to measure the germs in the mouth – before and after the use of my system.

I have some re-tests coming up soon – and I hope they will show my system is powerful and gets rid of pesky germs that cause so much damage to your gums and health.

I do not recommend antibiotics personally at this time.

If you do decide to have them – you have to realize that they are going to be a temporary fix.

Xylitol and my complete mouth care system is a way to sustainable oral health – for a lifetime.

If you need some help with products, how much xylitol to take or other coaching – I would be delighted to help you.

Best wishes,

Dr. Ellie Phillips DDS
