Yep, I wouldn't say to use this or that. The truth is all one needs for their dental health is 3 parts baking soda to one part Sea Salt and wash, rinse and gargle with it. Maybe some Iodine in it when something flares up but I believe it's probably the best if we never use anything they push for oral health. The good old baking soda salt is sensible. Definitely dental tape and a pik, but make sure that pik is spic and span all the time or you may intro bacteria into your gum tissue from an unclean pik. lol..toss some IO into it..Io of course being Iodine.
