There truly is something to be said for the addition of xylitol in children's toothpaste!
We have learned the hard way over the past year. When the kidscents toothpaste went out of stock, we thought having our boy use the aromabrite toothpaste would be good enough for him. At his dental check up, we were surprised to hear he had two cavities. We blamed it on drinking milk after teeth brushing at night and the dentist agreed. This dentist moved out of town. We have since found a dentist who uses a holistic approach, including Young Living Essential Oils. He found 2 more cavities in Kohen's mouth. He shared with me about flossing and how the bacteria can spread in the mouth, so rinsing your floss tips is beneficial. Also, that xylitol tastes like sugar, but it chases the sugar bugs (bacteria) away. We started using a xylitol rinse after every brushing and flossing and the next check up came back with no cavities. He did however, have an abscess in his gum, beside one of the fillings from our previous dentist. The X-ray showed significant infection under the tooth. To be on the safe side, we chose to pull this baby tooth out today (2 days after finding the abscess). The dentist said the infection was bigger than he had anticipated and was very thankful that we chose to pull the tooth. He vacuumed out all of the infection and did a double shot of ozone in the socket to ensure all of the infection was gone.
I am so thankful that my US order arrived with these 4 tubes of kidscents toothpaste...we will never go without again! My boys health depends on it #oralhealthissoimportant #holisticdentistryexists #yourtoothpastematters
