Dental Hygiene

It is common knowledge that our mouth is home to a constant fauna and flora of microbes. There are bacteria, fungus and sometimes virus both accumulating and growing in our mouths.

Miraculously, they tend to stay out of the tissues and the teeth are relatively impervious to the harm that they can potentially cause. There are however, exceptions to this.

Cavities can form in teeth and cracks in the teeth can develop as well. Food or teeth through biting can unintentionally poke holes or damage the integrity of our tongue or cheeks. When these breaches of the tissue or teeth occur, bacteria can get in and cause problems.

Moreover, in dental plaques, or prosthetics, bacteria can colonize. These bacterial colonies can cause damage to the surrounding tissues. Oral bacteria are also the cause of bad breath.

While it is certainly not possible to sterilize one’s mouth, there is a simple way to dramatically reduce the microbial load. Bleeding gums, toothaches and mouth sores can be due to these pathogens and can cause significant pain and oral illness. Rather than just suppressing the pain of these sores (as allopathic medicine would suggest), it is important to attack and cure the cause.

The same enhanced aqueous silver colloid that has been applied to so many maladies throughout this book is the perfect agent for this mission of oral health.

It is important to remember that silver colloids kill very well, but not very rapidly. A one-ounce dose of this colloid can be swished around the mouth for 20 minutes while you drive to work, read a magazine, work at the computer, or clean up the kitchen.

The constant swishing around your teeth, gums, mouth and under your tongue will result in killing millions of bacteria and fungus. When you are done, simply spit out the mixture. There is no need to rinse any leftover colloid from your mouth. It is best to let it linger and continue to work.

While this is an effective and easy approach to improving and maintaining oral health and can be safely done every day, it is not absolutely necessary to use it daily. Every few days should be sufficient.

When you are scheduled to visit your dentist (every six months is a minimal recommendation) for a check-up and cleaning or to have work done, swish for a couple mornings before you go. Then, after the work, swish for another 20 minutes on the way home. You will never need prophylactic antibiotics again and you will maintain a healthy mouth that both you and your dentist will be proud of.

Tooth extractions

If you have a tooth pulled, a clot will form in the extracted tooth pocket. This is an important part of the healing process. While you can use the colloid to maintain a bacteria-static environment during the healing process, in the first 24 to 36 hours after the extraction, be careful not to over soak that area. You don’t want to dissolve or dislodge the clot which needs to be part of the healing process.
