I have a strong recommendation for my friends and readers.
I changed my regular dental hygiene appointment from every three months to every six months.
Immediately after my appointment in June I started using a small dab of Livionex gel every night along with flossing.
I just came back from my six month hygiene cleaning. My hygienist, was surprised to see virtually no calculus. Her cleaning was light, gentle and almost non-existent compared to the usual quarterly painful, bloody extensive cleaning.
The Livionex website gives an explanation of the supposed chemistry involved. It focuses on the ionitic charges on the surface. It doesn’t make much sense to me, not knowing about the ecology of teeth. It makes no difference.
Livionex works. It costs $20 a tube which lasts about 5 months. Cheap compared to hygienists or anything else in a dental office.
