Hi – and thanks for your message.
If I was convinced that you understood the use of my system exactly – and if you were following the directions exactly – then I would tell you there is no way for these cavities to progress or get worse – and they will most likely get better. Most cavities will reverse in about 6 months. Did they see the cavities – or were they on X rays? Did they retake the X rays this time?
I would discuss with you the reasons why you should work to avoid new fillings.
It would be important that you thought it was important – otherwise go ahead – have them filled.
Personally I would avoid them if I were in your shoes.
I see fillings as toxic in one way or the other – and I prefer the idea of perfect teeth – I don’t want to have fillings.
The problem is that I don’t know how serious you are.
I don’t know how disciplined you are.
Will you do this mouth rinse routine twice a day – using all the rinses in the exact order?
Are you able to protect your teeth all day by using xylitol?
What do you normally drink – do you understand what damages teeth and makes them decay?
I would be happy to talk you through this.
Basically you need to answer the questions above.
If you are following the system to a T and also understand how to use xylitol – I would tell you to wait and see.
If you don’t follow or understand how things protect teeth – this may not be a good idea ( or get a consult with me).
I would love to help you – and we can talk about this on the phone.
We could discuss your problem and maybe save your teeth!
Let me know if I can help you,
Dr Ellie Phillips
