I live in Colorado, and I really need your help. I have been reading about you and the system that you use for good oral health. I have some concerns. I had a bleaching treatment done a little less than a year ago. And since that bleaching treatment my teeth do not feel nor look the same. They have a rough feeling to them. I have gone to many dentist here in Colorado to try and get help and figure out what could of happened. So far I have not had much luck and I am extremely worried about this. It is something that keeps me up at night. The only thing that I was told was that it seemed that the enamel had an etched appearance. Just on the superficial layer. My teeth are not sensitive at all at this point but the feeling of roughness bothers me, I did have a dentist try and polish my teeth to see if this helped but not much luck there. Two other dentists suggested veneers, which I don’t want to do because they are too aggressive and too expensive. I don’t think that my teeth are that bad in condition to have to consider something like this. At this point I don’t believe much in dentists. It makes me think that all they want is money. I do not have dental insurance so this is why I am looking to see if my teeth can be repaired more naturally. By the way. I also have some white spots from when I had braces. I need your help. Do you think your system is something that could help me?? If you could please get back to me I would appreciate it.
You must have exactly the correct rinses and paste and use them in the exact and correct method.50% of the improvement will come from using enough xylitol each day and 50% from using the rinse system twice a day.
Protect your teeth with xylitol after any snacks and drinks that may be acidic – including herbal and green teas.
Once you have started with xylitol and my system of rinsing – then let me know how things are going and how quickly your teeth feel better.
I will possibly suggest you think about some supplements to your diet and also probiotics – but let’s get started with the system first!!
