thank you my dear! I looked at it, and he lists the ingredients so I could just find them without alcohol and mix my own little thing up to rinse with. did you drink it or just rinse with it? My dentist wants me to get this gum surgery on a few of my teeth thats thousands and involves antibiotics and craziness! candida really wreaks havoc on all aspects of your life. I woke up a month ago and looked in the mirror and my gum had receeded on a new tooth over night! really bad! My guess is lack of nutriton for so long>? I have a question I need new retainers which I don't know what kind of metal they use? is it stainless steel? is that bad or contribute to metal problems from wearing retainers at night???! I think I'll post this question too I'm curious.
