A little Snapchat fun!
Last month we spent almost $1500 at our dentist’s office. Crazy, right? We didn’t have any cavities to fill, but there are a lot of us, and cleanings x 6 (the boys aren’t going yet) are expensive. Plus our youngest daughter got sealants on her molars. And then our 11-year-old got a gum infection as a result of a long wire on her braces, which set us back even more.
We also discovered that one of our girls was having trouble keeping her teeth clean around her braces, and after a long conversation about the consequences that our dentist’s office has seen when braces aren’t kept clean, we’ve been hyper-vigilant about checking and double-checking her teeth.
So when I got an email inviting me to try Livionex Dental Gel, I was intrigued. An all-natural dental gel that promises to leave your teeth feeling like you’ve just had them professionally cleaned, Livionex is made from food-grade edathamil. This chelating agent works by grabbing onto the plaque, and studies show that it cleans teeth two-and-a-half times more effectively than traditional toothpaste, removing up to four times as much plaque. Which means it reduces bad breath as well. And it’s especially effective for kids with braces.
Honestly, I didn’t set my expectations too high for this one. I’ve tried several natural kinds of toothpaste, and I always end up reverting back to traditional toothpaste because my teeth begin to feel “soft” (I know they don’t actually get soft in my mouth, but I’m not sure how else to describe it) and sensitive after a few weeks. And I wasn’t sure how my husband would feel about the lack of foaming and mild taste since it’s free from detergents and artificial flavors.
But we really have noticed a difference in the way our teeth feel after using it for a few weeks, and I love that it’s safe enough for everyone in the family to use. In fact, even the Skin Deep database lists all EDTAs (the class of molecule that includes edathamil) as low hazard.
You can also use additional dental products—such as mouth wash or sensitivity-reducing toothpaste—after brushing your teeth with Livionex to get the benefits of both.
Now, here’s the catch. Because Livionex is based on more than a decade of cutting-edge research and is still new to the market, it’s on the expensive side—$20 for a 6-week supply for one person. But, as our experience shows, dental care is much more expensive—and I know I personally spend more than $20 on coffee for myself in the same time period.
