I wish I had a dollar for everytime a patient would tell me that they wished they'd taken better care of their teeth--I would be a rich woman right now!  Instead, too many times, people tend to disassociate their teeth with the rest of their body and just tell their dentist to pull them all.  Later on, after the realization that NOTHING replaces their natural teeth, the patient is often discouraged with how they look, feel and taste food.  Dentures are a whole nother set of problems.  If you had a problem with your arm, would you be so quick as to say "amputate it?"  I would hope not, yet that's exactly what people do with their teeth.  They amputate living teeth and are then left with the after-effects of poor nutrition and a host of other problems.  Your teeth are directly related to organs in your body.  So think about what happens when one of the them is either removed or has a root canal (dead tissue) in your body.  We may live older as a society overall, but are we truly healthy?  True health STARTS with your mouth so if you have disease, aka gingivitis, periodontal disease or even missing teeth, then what STATE of health are you in?  For example, if you are having stomach problems, it could be coming from your teeth numbers 2,3,5,12,14,15,20,21,28, and 29. Your mouth is the portal to your body.  Here is a link to the tooth meridian chart that Dr. Ron Dressler uses on his website  mercuryfreedentistga.com/education/tooth-organ-chart  If you're having health problems, please do some due diligence and research the links on your own.  Your health is priceless, and so are your teeth.  Please don't be so quick to amputate them.

WHY WAS FLUORIDE USED AS A RAT POISON?

In my previous blog about why I don't recommend fluoride, I mentioned that fluoride was used as a rat poison.  I know this may surprise people, but the reason why it was so effective in killing rodents is because of its protoplasmic ability.  That means the fluoride changes the permeability of the cell membrane by inhibiting certain enzymes. Here is a link to the history of fluoride and proof of its use as an insecticide

So, why is Simply Silver Mouthwash the SAFEST choice for your oral health?  SSM does NOT contain toxic chemicals of ANY kind and the main ingredient is a blend of silver solution.  Silver is nature's antibiotic.  It is anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic and it aids in wound healing.  It's the perfect base for a mouthwash instead of an alcohol, water or glycerin which is either too acidic and harmful or does absolutely nothing beneficial for you.  Prior to antibiotics, silver was used and the use of silver as medicine goes back thousands of years. Click here for the Medicinal History of Silver
