A Closer Look: Understanding the Latest Science

The Zellies Complete Mouth Care System has been used by hundreds of people who have been told they had “incurable” periodontal disease. After only a few months on the System, surprised dentists have told them they no longer need periodontal surgery.

Porphyromonas gingivalis is a bacteria involved in gum infections and periodontal disease. New research suggests P. gingivalis has a dangerous ability to upset and disable our body’s immune system. This allows the bacteria to be protected from our normal defense systems and explains why P. gingivalis can set up chronic infections that put you at risk for serious health problems.

Studies suggest that P. gingivalis causes immune damage very quickly. This is why gum health is important and why the Zellies Complete Mouth Care System should be started in advance of problems.

If your parents had gum disease, or conditions like arthritis, heart problems, or dementia, you may be at greater risk for periodontal pathogens transmitted through kissing and sharing food with your family. Young women should understand the association between poor gum health and pre-term birth.

In addition to using Zellies Xylitol and rinse protocol, studies have shown that probiotics may also be beneficial for gum health, and a diet rich in antioxidants and Omega-3s may help stop bleeding and stimulate healing.

About the Author Dr. Ellie

My passion is educating people about oral health. For decades I’ve worked with patients of all ages, in different countries, in high and low-risk communities, and from every walk of life. I’ve seen the same results over and over again –people who transformed their oral health – sometimes in days or weeks, even after they had suffered years of pain and frustration. It’s never too late, and my ways will give you the key to a lifetime of improved oral health.
