In one of the practices I worked at, it was standard protocol that whenever a new patient came in, they would see the dentist first after getting their full set of xrays completed.  I know I'm in trouble if I can hear the assistant having a hard time with them.  In this particular case, I could hear the aggravation in the assistants voice when she spoke to him and I was curious as to what the problem was.  After she completed the xrays, she came up to me and told me that this new patient had a GIANT hole in the crotch of his pants AND he wasn't wearing any underwear.  Not only that but he seemed to think it was funny and sat spread eagle in the chair.  So, he has a seat in my chair and I could tell that he was high on drugs.  I was trying to keep my composure and discuss his brushing and flossing habits but it was very hard knowing his carbuncles were resting on my chair.  In the middle of his cleaning he busted out laughing at the cartoons he was listening to.  I about had a coronary because when someone moves like that I think I've cut a jugular or something and it makes me jump. Needless to say, the dental office is NOT the place to free Willy if you know what I mean.

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
