Let’s use a comparison. Pretend thatyou have a cookie loose in your shirtpocket. The cookie breaks. You mustnow have to pick all of the loose bitsof crumbs out of your pocket.Sometimes it is impossible to get it allout.The periodontal pocket is a similarpocket and poses the same problem.Depending on the depth of the pocketit is often virtually impossible to keepclean so it is free of destructivebacterial toxins. In many cases thedentist will recommend the surgicalremoval of the pocket so the patientcan keep the area clean.
At the 2001 annual session of the American College ofCardiology, researcher were stunned by new researchthat showed gingivitis is actually linked to heart disease.“There is sufficient evidence to conclude that orallesions, especially advanced periodontal disease, placecertain patients at risk for cardiovascular disease andstroke,” stated Louis F. Rose, DDS,MD, of University ofPennsylvania. The same oral pathogenPorphyromonasgingivalis that causes gum disease, alsocontributes to the inflammation along arteries & arterialdamage that leads to heart and vascular disease.
While brushing mechanically removes some of theplaque and pathogens, it still leaves 40 to70% ofmicroorganisms behind unscathed to later repopulatethe mouth. Oral hygiene could be vastly improved byadding proven and potent antiseptic to the toothpaste ,rather than relying on either fluoride or scrubbing.Essential oils are ideal for use in oral care productsbecause they are both antiseptic and non-toxic….a rarecombination. Jean Valnet, M.D., who used E.O.’s fordecades in his clinical practice emphasized this: E.O.’sare especially valuable as antiseptic because of theiraggression toward microbial germs is matched by theirtotal harmlessness toward tissue.”
Essential oils constituents, such as thymol, Menthol andEucalyptol, have been used in mouth rinses for over100 yrs. [and] have been documented to be antibacterialin laboratory tests. With the association ofmicroorganisms & plaque formation, and [their]suspected involvement with tooth decay & gingivitis, theeffect of essential oil takes on new interest. The E.O’s ofthyme, clove and cinnamon possess significantinhibitory affects against 23 different general of bacteria.
A comprehensive 2002 survey of medical literature hasshown that thyme oil is one of the strongest naturalantiseptics known. Researchers found that thymekills over 60 different strains of bacteria and 16different strains of fungi. A 1995 study by NicoleDidry at the College of Pharmaceutical & BiologicalSciences in Lille, France, found that thyme at evenvery small concentrations (500 parts per million orless) killed the pathogenic organisms responsible forthe tooth decay, gingivitis, and bad breath.Over 100 studies have been documented on how E.O.’skill the microbes that cause tooth decay andgingivitis.

The problem with many common brand toothpastes isthat they contain very large-sized abrasive particles thatcan quickly wear away tooth enamel. Because toothenamel is not regenerated by the body, it is lostpermanent.As tooth enamel is, the softer dentin material underneathis exposed and thereby greatly enhances the risk ofdental decay and tooth loss.Graph shown at 500 times magnificationA.

Deborah Lynne CarltonFollowing a final tooth extraction in January of 2009, thenext step was the placement of two titanium posts in thelower jaw where molars once resided. For thisprocedure the surgeon drills down into the jaw about3/8ths of an inch, placing the screw-threaded posts witha cap on it. This will remain for approximately 3 monthswhile the bone knits around the posts, before placingthe "abutment" that will hold the temporary tooth andeventually the final tooth.
Most toothpastes use questionable chemicals suchaspentasodiumtriphoshate&tetrasodiumpyrophoshateto control tarter, The scale that builds up on teeth &irritate gums, leading to gingivitis, tooth loss, &periodontal disease. However recent studiespublished in The American Journal of Dentistryhave documented the significant tartar-reducingeffects of zinc citrate. Among these clinical studiesas a randomized, double-blind 6 mo. trial whichshowed that a zinc-citrate containing toothpastecould reduce tartar by 26%.

Our team foundthat we could use the oils on osteopathic legions andacupuncture points, & this helped the patients to get betterdramatically faster. We then began to use oils for emotionalhealing. We are seeing great success with that. We have seendramatic recovery with both single and blends.
Foreign-made toothpaste with thesame labeled with U.S. brand namesare being brought into the countryillegal and sold to discount stores.“Excess fluoride in illegal pastes cancause permanent brown spots on teethand can also be toxic.”Large amounts of fluoride can really bedangerous for little ones if swallowed oringested.

Fluoride, a neurotoxin that has been linked to reduced IQ, impairedneurobehavioral development and brain damage, among many other serioushealth problems, is sometimes prescribed in supplement form to childrenages 6 months to 16 years who live in areas that have non-fluoridateddrinking water.These recommendations now defy rational logic and common sense on twofronts:1) even promoters of fluoridation now admit that fluorides predominantaction is on the surface of the tooth and not from inside the body (CDC,1999) and2) there are more than 100 published studiesillustrating fluorides harm tothe brain, plus 25 published studies directly linking fluoride exposure toreduced IQ in children! In other words, it doesnt do much (if any) good toswallow fluoride and doing so could be doing significant harm.Adding insult to injury, new research has further revealed that ingestingfluoride in supplement form does not reduce cavities in primary teeth – andmay in fact cause harm.The CDC admitted in 2010 that 41% of American children between the ages of12-15 had this irreversible staining of their teeth (CDC, 2010) and in 2005revealed that minority children are disproportionately impacted by thiscondition (CDC, 2005, Table 23).
ADA Recommends Fluoride Supplements Despite Evidence of Serious RisksThe truth has always been that fluoride is a toxic agent that is biologically active in thehuman body where it accumulates in sensitive tissues over time, wreaks havoc withenzymes and produces a number of serious adverse health effects —includingneurological and endocrine dysfunctions (NRC, 2006).Nearly 10 years ago, Belgium banned the sale of all non-prescription fluoridesupplements citing well-documented research indicating that ingested fluoride has"considerable potential" for physical and neurological harm, with little evidence of cavityprevention. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), meanwhile, has not foundfluoride supplements to be safe or effective, according to the National Institute of Health,which lists a laundry list of fluorides effects, including:Staining of teeth Unusual increase in saliva Weakness Stomach pain and upset stomach,Vomiting, Diarrhea , Rash , Salty or soapy taste , Tremor SeizuresNot to mention, its known that over time fluoride accumulates in many areas of yourbody, including areas of your brain that control and alter behavior, particularly yourpineal gland, hippocampus and other limbic areas. One particularly striking animal studypublished in 1995showed that fluoride ingestion had a profound influence on theanimals brains and altered behavior. Pregnant rats given fluoride produced hyperactiveoffspring. And animals given fluoride after birth became apathetic, lethargic "couchpotatoes."This study was particularly powerful because the effects were measured using objectivecomputerized evaluations of behavior, to rule out subjective bias by the researchersobserving the animals.For the past 60 years, pregnant women have ingested fluoridated water and usedfluoridated water to reconstitute infant formula for their babies. If the adverse effectsassociated with fluoride exposure in animals are true for humans as well, wed expect tosee a striking change in human behavior at this point as well.
Of Course Fluoride Is Safe…as Long as You Dont Swallow It!This is the standard warning on every tube of toothpaste with fluoride. So, let’s get this straight: Fluoride ispoisonous, but a little bit of poison is okay? Yet if you swallow too much, you need to call Poison Control.Wow! And we’ve heard since early childhood that fluoride is a wonder substance for preventing cavitiesand tooth decay. Ironically, not even that has been proved true. It’s been shown that fluoride doesn’tactually prevent tooth decay and, in fact, it may even hurt your health.Fluoride is diluted industrial waste, with some heavy marketing dollars behind it to help hide that toxicwaste in our products and water supply. According to Dr. Russell Blaylock, “Fluoride is one of the mostpoisonous substances on earth. It tends to accumulate in the body, particularly in the bones, thyroid gland,and brain. It lowers IQ and is associated with Down syndrome, and it triggers toxicity in the human body.But the people who are promoting it have so much influence through the media that you really can’t get thetruth out.” Because fluoride affects your thyroid gland, it limits your body’s output of this importanthormone — which could lead to weight gain.Furthermore, consider this: Most health authorities suggest drinking at least eight glasses of water per dayfor good health, but how much fluoride are you getting when you drink a glass of artificially fluoridatedwater? About the same as if you swallowed a pea-sized blob of toothpaste — which the label clearly tellsyou not to do. If it’s unsafe to swallow eight blobs of toothpaste with FDA-approved fluoride every day forlife, or take eight pills containing this amount of fluoride, why are we told it’s okay to drink this amount ofthe diluted industrial waste that has never been FDA-approved for human consumption?Unfortunately, fluoride is piped into many of our homes through our water system, making it a difficultsubstance to avoid. Here’s how to cut back on your exposure to fluoride:· Drink cleaner water. If you live in an area where the water is fluoridated, sign up for bottledunfluoridated water to drink, or install reverse osmosis systems on all of your faucets to help filter thesubstance out of your water supply. Be sure to change the filters every three months to keep the waterfluoride free, as fluoride can eat through the metal filters (and if it’s eating through metal filters, justimagine what it can be doing to your body!).· Look for unfluoridated toothpaste and dental treatments. There are unfluoridated versions out there,especially in the natural food stores. If you’re unable to find them, avoid swallowing toothpaste. Considerrefusing fluoride treatments at the dental office for your children. Definitely use Young Living Products!!!
