Livionex Dental Gel: Update and Review
Okay, I mentioned in an earlier post about Livionex Dental Gel (a couple of months ago, in late March, 2015) that I was excited to try this pretty interesting gel. I had ordered it, and have used it very sparingly, yet regularly since then. Other than missing a few days when I was packing and traveling to go home after spending our winter down south, I have used it twice daily.
I also promised to report back with what I’ve experienced. In my last post, a reader left a comment that I’m going to echo here: I really think that this product can turn the dental care industry on its head.
So, it has been over 2 1/2 months since I began using Livionex, and as I said, I’ve been very judicious about using it since it’s not cheap (about $22 delivered, for 1 tube if you buy only 1 tube – the price goes down, the more you buy).
I think I may have mentioned that I have receding gumlines and the teeth are exposed in that area. It’s possible I caused this by scrubbing my teeth all my life. Nonetheless, it has been a very sensitive area. Since using Livionex, while it obviously can’t “regrow” my gumlines, I can definitely say that the sensitivity has diminished considerably. Also, it may be my imagination, but the exposed lower part of the my teeth seems to be lighter in appearance (is it possible that there has been some remineralization there?)
The way my teeth feel in general? Awesome! There’s almost a “squeaky” sound when I brush – like the teeth are getting really squeaky-clean.
I’ve been prone to tartar buildup in the past, and can also attest to the fact that there is virtually no buildup. I’ve been trying (in vain) to get a decent photo of my teeth, but you wouldn’t be able to tell that they are less sensitive by seeing a photo!
Anyway, I’ve just ordered another tube – I’m not sure why my 1st tube lasted so long (over 2 months), but it’s possible I was using less than a pea-sized amount (but it seemed “pea-sized” to me).
There were some Livionex reviews where the writers mention that it was hard to keep on their toothbrush, but I had no problem with that at all. I also don’t mind the fact that it does not foam – I’m used to that with some other toothpastes that I’ve used.
I CAN get that small amount to spread out all over my tooth surfaces, so using a small amount seems sufficient.
There are people who recommend fluoride as a method of remineralization (including the author of the Dentist Be Damned! book about how to cure tooth decay naturally – which we do promote here). I’ve long held a personal bias against fluoride – but everyone has their own opinion on that, which I certainly respect. But, since I haven’t liked using it, it’s my hope that the use of Livionex (along with some of the other suggestions in Dentist Be Damned!) will be enough to help strengthen my own tooth enamel, and keep my teeth and gums healthy for many years to come!
I would recommend Livionex Dental Gel, and while I do not (yet!) have any affiliation with them, you can go directly to their website at www.livionexdental.com. I’ve written to them, asking if I can promote them, and I’ll let you know if that comes about!
