Well, I've been using the Periogen for 2 weeks and a few days, nearly 2 and a half weeks. I have not used it everyday, I really am my own worst enemy about doing things consistently for myself. But I can say that I use it more often than not, 4 or more times per week. I've been making it a bit stronger using 1 and 1/2 to 2 scoops each time (which is well within the usage directions), I'm using it with the Interplak WJ6RW Dental Water Jet using the Subgingival Tip, this is an angled soft tip that I can push into my gums, it really gets the Periogen deep into my gums.
OK, here is what has been happening, as I said before, I can't leave well enough alone, several times a week I grab a mirror, a loop and a dental pick, I get up close and personal with my tartar, something I have done before, but now the tartar is different, it's even a different color (lighter in color), and more brittle, it's as if it's not attached to my teeth the same way as it was before, it's much MUCH easier to scrape off. In the past, I've been able to remove the larger chunks that build up on the inside of my bottom teeth, but I've never been able to remove the thinner layers that are between my teeth and on the gum line. Now I am able to remove it, quite easily. I tend to work on one or two teeth at a time, I don't want to mess up or do damage, I also don't want to release too much toxins, you know when you go to the dentist even to just get a cleaning, they will often prescribe antibiotics, that's because when they are working on your teeth, they are releasing lots of toxins into your body and you need to be able to fight it. So I take it slow, not doing too much at any one time.
I have noticed that if I try to work on the tartar BEFORE using the Periogen, the tartar is hard and doesn't want to let go, but after I use the Periogen, it really does change the tartar, making it easier to remove. I am really happy with how this stuff is working. :)
Tonight, I really worked to clean my teeth extra well before using the Periogen. I flossed (something I don't regularly do) and I also used one of those skinny brushes that go between your teeth called a interdental brush. I noticed immediately that flossing was much easier, before this time, I often had to force the floss to go between many of my teeth, and often the floss would shred because of roughness of the tartar buildup. The little brush also went between my teeth much easier than before, in fact there had been some of my teeth where I couldn't get one of those brushes to go in, tonight I was able to easily get the brush in between all of my teeth and it went quite easily. That is telling me that the tartar is going away, there is more space between my teeth that hadn't been there before, it had been filled with tartar, and now it's going away.
I have to say that if I had been using the Periogen everyday as I am supposed to, I know that even more tartar would be gone. I'll continue using it and report more about it in the coming days and weeks.
