Thanks Water, I swear you know the ins and outs of this forum like the back of your hand!
Glad to know that grzbear's protocol uses the baking soda and Sea Salt , as well as terramin clay and H202. I used to use this a couple years back, but it grew out of habit, and I thought my natural organic paste was okay. But of couse, it was laden with glycerin all along.
The allopathic dentist's article is very descriptive as well, and helps reach an understanding about what exactly is going on with my mouth's microscopic environment!
