Without the mouthwash my inner mucosa would be worse. Ever since I began doing the extreme brushing/mouthwashing regimen the white biofilm that was present in my inner mucosa has diminished considerably. The buildup on the other hand was still there.
I only started doing the yogurt thing so I can't comment on its results--if any at the moment.
I had really thick buildup on my lips before I started using Bepanthen. Now the buildup is thin on the bottom lip and only present on the tip of my upper lip. My upper lip has responded very well to the Bepanthen cream.
I still have the inflammation though. Whenever I shine an LED flashlight on my bottom lip I can actually see tiny bright red blood vessels. I wish I knew what was causing that.
