Today, most dental researchers agree
that periodontal disease is the result of bacterial infection.
Dental researchers also agree that much of the damage to
the bone and soft tissue is due to the inflammatory response
of the body. Periodontal disease causes approximately 70%
of all adult tooth loss. Only 30% is due to tooth decay.
One of the purposes of
periodontal treatment is the establishment of bacterial
control from day to day. Runar D. Johnson, D.D.S., N.D recommends
products from the Dental Herb Company, toothpaste, tonic
rinse and irrigants. These products are alcohol-free, non-staining
and economical. They use only pure and complete essential
oils, not diluted or fractioned "flavorings" or
chemically synthesized "active ingredients." The
botanical tinctures are made from organically grown or ecologically
wildcrafted medicinal plants which contain an exceptionally
high concentration of bioactives. They are superior to the
lower quality extracts found in most commercial products,
even other supposedly "natural" ones.
Note: Dental Herb Company
products can only be sold from a licensed distributor.
