Cut Dental Bills
March 12, 2012
Dental bills are a big expense for some families.
In my case, this is a minimal expense. My teeth seem impervious to cavities. I have 3 fillings, and the most recent was 35 years ago. I have never done anything special to take care of my teeth. I rarely go to the dentist.
Do what I say, not what I do.
I am impressed with dentist Ellie Phillips' strategy in her book, KISS YOUR DENTIST GOODBYE -- a truly great marketing title.
She is a big fan of xylitol, an artificial sweetener that strengthens teeth.
She has a web site: www.drellie.com.
To see what she recommends, go here:
I bought these items at WalMart, cheap. But you can at least see what she recommends.
She says that dry mouth is really bad for teeth. So, if you breathe through your mouth at night, you have a big problem. That would seem to be a case for those nose strips that open up nasal passages, but she does not mention this.
She is not big on flossing. That makes her unique. I figure I can floss, too.
Her site is filled with testimonials.
Be sure you do not swallow the fluoride mouth rinse or the Crest toothpaste.
Tell your children to rinse and spit.
