Zellies Complete Mouth Care System: A DIY Method for Healthy, Clean Gums and Teeth
Zellies Complete Mouth Care System is designed to strengthen, clean and protect teeth from cavities and gum disease. It limits the growth of harmful plaque bacteria, protects teeth from acidity and dryness and promotes natural tooth repair and strengthening. The Zellies Complete Mouth Care System includes a series of well-known rinses in the morning and at night, and delicious Zellies Xylitol products to protect teeth from dietary acidity and dryness all day.
It is important to brush teeth in a neutral pH or alkaline mouth because teeth are soft in an acidic mouth and more likely to be damaged by abrasive toothpaste. Using a pH balancing rinse like CloSYS™ before brushing neutralizes teeth and loosens food particles so brushing is more effective. Do not use any flavoring in this rinse, as it will reduce the beneficial effects.
After rinsing with CloSYS™ for a minute, brush your teeth using a well-designed medium-soft toothbrush. Be sure to brush your gums, and don’t forget your six front teeth at gum level – upper and lower. Many people turn their wrists as they brush and miss these front teeth. Also take care to brush the gum on the inside of back molars along the side of your tongue.
For best results, use a Zellies soft bristle toothbrush with a head that fits your mouth and basic sodium fluoride toothpaste like Crest® ® Original Paste. Do not use a paste with whitening agents, tartar control additives, stannous fluoride, sodium monofluorophosphate, or triclosan. It is vital to disinfect your toothbrush after brushing by dipping it in Listerine® Antiseptic. If bacteria are irritating your gums, brushing may make them bleed. This is part of the healing process. If this happens; just gently brush the area that bleeds.
Immediately after brushing, rinse your mouth with Listerine®, an antibacterial rinse effective against immature plaque bacteria. Use a Listerine® that carries an ADA shield of acceptance, such as Original, Cool Mint and Vanilla Mint. Do not use Listerine® that advertises plaque or tartar control, or whitening, which do not carry the ADA shield of acceptance. If the rinse seems too strong– it is acceptable to dilute the Listerine® with water until it is tolerable.
The final rinse is fluoride, which helps to remineralize and strengthen teeth. We recommend ACT® Anticavity Fluoride. Avoid ACT ® Restore since it contains alcohol and has a different fluoride concentration. Fluoride should be kept on teeth as long as possible, so it's is best to rinse immediately before bed and after eating in the morning.
Zellies Xylitol is a delicious weapon in the fight against dental disease. It looks and tastes like sugar but has 40% fewer calories. When xylitol dissolves in your mouth, it makes a sweet sugary solution that is alkaline, the opposite of damaging acidic. Studies show that eating two teaspoons of xylitol each day (6-10 grams) for 5 weeks will remove harmful germs from plaque on your teeth and in 6 months 95% of these germs will be removed from your mouth.
Protect and strengthen teeth by eating Zellies 100% Xylitol Mints or Gum after meals, drinks and snacks.
Most people notice a cleaner, fresher mouth within the first week of using Zellies Complete Mouth Care System and Zellies Xylitol. As plaque bacteria absorb xylitol, they become less sticky and usually are easily brushed off teeth with a toothbrush.
If you have routine plaque and tartar, you will begin to notice a difference in your oral health in about 5 weeks, as harmful plaque bacteria are removed from the surfaces of teeth. After 6 months, you should have your teeth cleaned in a dental office.
If you have heavily infected plaque deposits when you start using Zellies Complete Mouth Care System, dead bacteria may form a dark band of stain along the gum line. It can be easily cleaned off your teeth at your next dental cleaning and is unlikely to return if you remain on the system.
