I have been pulling for almost four months.Three months ago I went for a cleaning. I told the hygenist who is very open to alternatives what I was doing. We decided to do an experiment. She measured the pockets on the bottom, and we were going to re-measure at the next cleaning.
That next cleaning was yesterday.
I went in kind of bummed--thinking that maybe this was just an urban legend or something of the sort. I said let me know the truth, because if nothing has happened I will Quit.
Keeping in mind that I am a smoker, drinker and feed my body good stuff wannabe--she was amazed. I have never been so happy at a dentist office. She said that she had never seen my gums looking so good. Also, 1 of my two bottom loose teeth had tightened up considerably. Also, all of the pockets had remained stable, except for one ine the back that had gone from a 5 to a 3. She said she had never seen that happen before.
Also to tell the truth--I sometimes skip the routine if I am busy or not feeling the results. Don't stop. I'm really getting on the stick now
