So a couple weeks ago I noticed a good size cavity on the gum line,it had already made a small whole and was black. I kinda freaked because I dont have dental insurance since my dh just got laid off in may. So my google research told me about xylitol. Its a sweetener but has been proven to help reduce and reverse tooth decay. I though why not try! So I went to a whole foods store here and got me some spry xylitol gum I chewed 6 pieces a day..lol 2 after breakfast 2 after lunch and 2 after dinner. Plus it said to not use any store bought toothpaste because they prevent the teeth from remineralizing. I used plax mouthwash once a day and brushed with a baking soda peroxide toothpaste(was store bought but I hadnt gone to whole foods yet). I know it was the xylitol gum though that helped because my teeth felt great after chewing it! My jaw started getting sore so im switching to spry xylitol toothpaste.lol. My cavity is now a very small light brown hole!! Its amazing! Oh and I did try brushing with an organic bar soap for a couple days but couldnt stand the taste..lol.. They say that helps teeth remineralize too. So far im getting good results from xylitol! Of course dentists say its impossible...lol
