I have a unique position from which to comment on what may work for dental health home care. When I say, “work”, I mean something that has the potential to keep gums and teeth healthy for the long haul.
The reason I have this unique view point is because I sell a particular dental tool. This tool is the primary thing that I utilize for my own dental home care. Of course, I still go to the dentist on a regular basis for a checkup. The difference now is that I get to hear that my gums are healthy, pocket depths have been minimized and they continue to stay that way. I also avoided the dreaded ‘deep cleaning’, which is also known as a Scaling and Root Planing or SRP.
I was astounded by this particular tool and I began to write about it several years ago. In fact, I mention it in my own book on gum disease. Later, I began to sell this tool directly to consumers.
What follows is shocking even though I probably should have expected it. I hear from customers on a regular basis about their own experience with this tool. On the same day that I wrote this article, a customer told me about how the very next day after his first use, he found his gums to be firmer. He said that he has never seen his gums that firm before.
Now, I am not one to make health claims and granted that there should be sound scientific studies and clinical tests to validate such things. I cannot validate what he said is true. However, I am astounded by the number of people that relate stories about this dental health device to me. This man’s story is not at all unusual – at least from my perspective.
I recently spoke to a woman who said her dentist told her she had a 70% improvement in her gum health in under two weeks of using this tool. She was facing another ‘deep Dentitox Pro cleaning’ after recently having a $3000 surgery to clean her gums up.
She had reached an end to her tolerance for these expensive procedures that did not seem to permanently solve the problem. She began looking for answers. This same type of experience is what prompted me to write a book about gum disease from the layman’s perspective.
In today’s world, actually in yesterday’s world as well – dental disease is a huge problem. Many people think they are free and clear but they are unaware of the silent minor tragedy that is growing in their mouth. Sooner or later many of them encounter the term ‘deep cleaning’ or SRP from their dentist or hygienist. Going beyond that, patients might have been told that they need teeth extracted and implants or dentures installed. In my personal case, I was told that such a ‘deep cleaning’ was the only thing that would help me.
I did not believe a ‘deep cleaning’ was the best answer for me and I started searching for answers. After several months of using mentioned above, I returned to the dentist. She and the hygienist both told me that things were looking a lot better and that whatever I was doing I should keep it up and the dentist said that I no longer needed that ‘deep cleaning’ treatment after all!
I was delighted to say the least. Now, I am finding, because of my interaction with customers that many of them have similar stories to tell. I would like for everyone to know about our experiences. If more people can save their teeth and save themselves from expensive dental treatments then it was worth it to write this article.
