You can brush, floss, be mindful of your diet and follow all the traditional oral hygiene advice, yet still find yourself needing fillings and ongoing dental cleanings. Dr. Ellie Phillips challenges this conventional dental instruction to “brush and floss,” arguing it can be both ineffective and potentially harmful. In her groundbreaking book, Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye, she unveils the secrets to achieving and maintaining a truly healthy mouth. In this book, Dr. Phillips explains
the importance of bacterial balance for oral health, highlighting how it will never
be attained through excessive flossing, aggressive cleanings, or the indiscriminate
killing of mouth bacteria. She exposes the detrimental effects of certain dental
procedures and products, including tooth whitening, bleaching, dental sealants,
and certain fluorides. By adopting her practical do-it-yourself daily routine, you
can effortlessly reduce plaque buildup, strengthen your teeth, heal and even
reverse small cavities, cure periodontal disease, and eliminate tooth sensitivity.
The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 examines the underlying causes of cavities and gum disease—as well as how teeth and gums can naturally heal themselves. It provides a clear picture of why we must rethink our fundamental beliefs about oral care if we want to avoid dental problems and sidestep all the chronic health conditions that are so closely associated with poor oral health. Part 2 provides details of a complete program that has the power to stop, prevent, and even reverse dental problems.
Isn’t it time to bid farewell to cavities, gum disease, and the general health dangers from poor oral health? With Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye as your guide, you will be empowered to take rapid action and dramatically enhance the look, feel, and health of your teeth—at any stage of life, and with the confidence that it is never too late to begin.
