hi suggi, it isn't an Instant Gratification like surgery but it's so gratifying. I feel like I'm beating the System
(and a dental bill) I often read about people having "treatments" that just happen to create the need for More treatments and I didn't want to be part of that
Each day I take one Oil of Oregano gelcap & 1000mg of Ester-C . Somewhere through the day I rub in some bee propolis extract or tincture (this is really fun to learn about). At bedtime I brush normally but I put 3 drops of Clenzology on the toothbrush after using my HydroFloss. At first, I'd also rinse with strong Very warm saltwater after the brushing. So it took about 2 wks of doing this to really get rid of all the redness and reduce the puffiness noticeably. I realized there was a good chance that the root planing and scaling would accomplish the same thing but much faster; I also realized that I didn't want to end up with possible post-operative pain and bleeding Plus a bill of almost $200 . I had to pay almost 80 for the HydroFloss (my dentist tried to sell me one), about $9 for the propolis and about $15 for the Clenzology (I have no memory of how I learned about this one). But they were all 3 things that I wanted and needed anyhow. The propolis tincture is so great for kids' cuts. My grandson had a crack in the side of his mouth and was fussing about it in Walmart. My daughter thought she could get him to ignore it but it hurt too much. I happened to have a tiny little jar of facecream in my purse that I mixed propolis into (I wondered if I'd Ever use it) , took a tiny bit and put it on his mouth: instantly no more pain.
I felt like a Wonderful Grandmother as he thanked me. I was so happy I was able to come up with something so quickly! The container actually was a sample from Clinique; very small. That propolis stains; so you have to be very careful. But it kills Everything! Plus, it numbs everything. You can feel a "coating" on the gums after you apply it. I am SO into alternatives
