I listened to a podcast interview of Dr. Mark Manhart, DDS, he has been a practicing dentist since 1962, he believes in and practices healing rather than the barbaric methods used today. His secret? Calcium and zinc.
You can listen to the audio podcast here or click on the link above to go directly to the page and listen, it's just under an hour, I believe you will get a lot from it.
This is what really piqued my interest, I like the idea of non-surgical dental therapy. I purchased the Calcium/zinc kit and the Calcium Carpule System. I'll explain more about each of these in a follow up post, for now let's just say that the prices for these products were in the very inexpensive range, if they work as advertised, they are well worth twice the price.
I have learned that in order to remineralize or rebuild the enamel on your teeth, there are some very common dental product ingredients that you need to avoid, this will actually prevent remineralization, namely glycerin, it's an ingredient in many dental products, toothpaste, rinses and such, glycerin coats your teeth and prevents remineralization, it stays on your teeth for a while after using it, I've read it can take up to 20 rinses to remove this glycerin layer. Just do a search for this and you will learn more than you ever wanted to know about it

Before considering using anything on my teeth or in my mouth, I read the ingredients, if it contains glycerin, I put it back on the shelf, period. It's not worth it to me to use something that will coat my teeth and prevent my teeth from remineralizing naturally. I've been doing this for a number of years, while I haven't been to a dentist in many years, I don't believe I have any cavities, or if I do, they are small, I believe one of the reasons is that I stopped using anything containing glycerin. I also don't use fluoride, it is a well known toxic waste product and it is not needed, for the record Periogen does contain a small amount of fluoride, a very tiny amount, it is used in the process of removing the tartar, not for "strengthening" teeth, I am willing to use it for now. Their website says:
Periogen has fluoride; how much? Why?
Periogen contains a small percentage of sodium fluoride ions (.04%) in order to have a guaranteed ion source to facilitate tartar dissolution. Typical fluoride toothpastes contain about .24% sodium fluoride, or 6 times as much.
you can read more about that here:
So here it is, my one-two punch on dental health care, I'm trying both of them now, one to remove tartar and the other to heal my teeth and gums. I'll keep you informed as to how these are working for me. What I can say now, 3 days into using them is, so far so good. :)

I received 2 bottles of Periogen free of charge for the expressed intent of giving it a trial and writing about that trial here, I purchased the other dental products, this in no way influences the outcome of the trial, I will write an honest review of these dental products and expect to receive no other compensation for the trial or review.
