I read or heard somewhere that one should not keep MMS solution in the mouth for very long. I have wonderful, perfect, strong teeth but have lost four of them to severe gum disease which started after the birth of my first child (hormone-related?). I have not visited my dentist in years because their routine deep-root scaling always entailed me getting a nasty gum infection afterwards and I did not want to be taking in all the anaesthetic drugs required for such a procedure.
As time wears on, I am experiencing more and more recession of the gums in most areas of my mouth. I am getting bigger spaces between the teeth. The pocketing in some areas is very deep - up to 12 or 14 mm. Many of my teeth are loose. Can MMS really save the rest of my teeth? Cosmetically speaking, can MMS reverse the recession?
Has anyone used the MMS solution in a device like a Water Pik? If I squirted it down into a deep pocket, it would stay down there for longer than is suggested until the natural saliva in my mouth would wash it away and I would naturally swallow it. Is this safe - does anyone know? This would be in addition to brushing/rinsing, gargling, flossing and ingesting MMS. Also, should one conclude the oral hygiene use of MMS with a rinsing of plain water?
Any advice from more experienced users of MMS would be most appreciated.
