To patients affected with gum disease or periodontitis, dentists often recommend root planing.
This is an expensive, time consuming and painful procedure. Root planing shaves part of the tooth surface which can make the teeth sensitive to hot and cold drinks and more prone to decay.
So the teeth pay a price in the hope of improving gum health.
Dentists and periodontists often recommend gum surgery.
Surgery may require up to twenty costly office visits. As many as forty injections, thirty incisions, and multiple stitches may be necessary.
Post-surgical pain and a lengthy recovery period are common.
Gum surgery and root planing do not cure gum disease and may need to be performed a second time.
Naturally, most people want to avoid these invasive procedures the first time.
Gum surgery is performed on the four quadrants. Many patients never complete the four procedures for various reasons.
The goal of gum surgery and the Smile Method with the use of the VitaPick™ are essentially identical and that is to kill the bacteria in the deep pockets.
It is the bacteria in the deep pockets that cause the destructive and progressive nature of periodontitis.
Dentists insert antibiotic fibers to destroy the bacteria in the deep pockets because the object is to kill the harmful bacteria and stop bone loss and gum recession.
Antibiotic fibers work very well in killing the deep bacteria for a while.
This, however, is not a long term answer as antibiotics are not to be used as a maintenance program.
Briefly, gum surgery removes part of the gum making the pocket shallow and again accessible to brushing, flossing and irritating.
If brushing flossing and irrigating did not halt the progression of periodontitis the first time why will they work after the surgery?
This unanswered question is one reason many choose not to have gum surgery performed to help stop gum disease progression.
For good results be attained, matters less on the gum surgery and more on how well, how often and how much time the patient spends on the maintenance routine.
The maintenance routine after gum surgery often is longer than that recommended by the Smile Method.
The VitaPick™ can deliver the antiseptic (salt and peroxide solution) or antibiotic solution to the base of the deep pocket.
The good news is that certain antiseptics kill the offending bacteria. However, they must be applied directly to the bacteria.
Applying the antiseptic nearby will not kill the bacteria! These antimicrobials then kill the harmful gum disease-causing bacteria and stop the disease process.
So, in a nutshell, these are the similarities and differences with gum surgery and the Smile Method.
One major consideration is that the Smile Method takes about the same or less time than the maintenance program after the gum surgery.
Brushing, flossing, mouth-washing, and irritating at best can only destroy the bacteria in the shallow pockets.
The proof is that if these methods were so good at killing the bacteria in shallow pockets then your pockets would not have deepened.
None of these conventional dental hygiene methods or dental scaling performed by your dentist reach let alone kill the bacteria in the deep pockets.
Dental irrigators are especially dangerous because the high pressure employed can damage the delicate gum tissue.
The stream directed into deep pockets drives the bacteria deeper. A dangerous and painful abscess may form.
If only there was simple, painless and safe way destroy the bacteria at the base of deep pockets! It is the gum disease-causing bacteria at the base of the deep pockets that cause the dangerous erosion of the underlying bone which supports the teeth.
Now available is a technique that can kill the destructive gum disease-causing bacteria in pockets three times deeper than conventional means.
The VitaPick™ is a durable and re-usable (manual, non-electric) pen-size applicator uniquely designed to deliver antiseptic solutions in gum pockets up to 12 mm deep.
The VP gently bathes the pockets with powerful natural antiseptics such as salt solution and hydrogen peroxide.
The salt solution you make at home with table salt and the peroxide you can purchase locally.
This solution is very safe and very economical.
The reason the VitaPick™ works is because it applies the antiseptic solution to the base of even the deepest pocket, directly on the germs. It is the deep bacteria that erodes the supporting bone, recede the gum line and cause tooth loss.
So when these powerful antiseptics kill the destructive bacteria the disease process stops progressing.

Kill the harmful bacteria, the disease process stops and healing begins!
In 1981, the author of the Smile Method was diagnosed with advanced periodontitis.
He spent many years looking for a way to avoid gum surgery and root planing.
During this time he developed the VP. He uses it periodically to kill bacteria in my deep pockets. As a result, his gums are healthier.
His gums no longer bleed when flossing. He no longer gets gum abscesses. His breath does not have the odor of disease.
Best of all he has not lost any teeth. He avoided gum surgery and saved over three thousand dollars on dental bills.
Let me stress however that this is not about how well the Smile Method is doing for the author, nor the references nor the testimonials, but what is important is that it works for the sufferer, and more importantly, is that they are not guessing about their gum health and can verify effectiveness.
Even if your periodontitis is advanced or the result of diabetes, osteoporosis or improper dental care, the VP can help improve your gum health.
As you kill the destructive bacteria and your gum health improves, you will notice the following:
Your gums will stop bleeding when you brush and floss.
Your breath will freshen.
Your loose teeth will tighten up. Teeth considered hopeless can often be saved.
Pain or tooth hypersensitivity will be reduced or eliminated.
Gum abscesses will stop forming.
Your gum line will stop receding. Your gums will firm up.
Your other health problems that are directly or indirectly linked to periodontitis may improve.
If you have early, moderate or advanced periodontitis, you now have a home-care technique available to help you improve your gum health.
The VP is uniquely designed to quickly kill the bacteria in the deepest pocket and save your teeth.
The VitaPick™ is the ONLY practical way to kill bacteria in deep pockets.
The easy to follow the 160-page book, The Smile Method – How to Avoid Gum Surgery and Dentures:
Illustrates how to use the VP to kill the shallow and deep pocket bacteria.
How to locate your gum pockets.
Which antiseptics are the safest and most effective to use.
So that you are not guessing about your gum health, learn a few easy ways to verify that you are successfully killing the bacteria.
Lists all the problems associated with gum surgery and root planing
Lists all the problems associated with using irrigators around deep pockets.
This book covers everything about the natural home treatment of advanced gum disease or periodontitis. It has complete references from research conducted by the American Dental Association to the American Natural Hygiene Society.
You Can Save Hundreds of Dollars on Dental Bills!
The Smile Method can help you avoid gum surgery and save you hundreds and maybe even a few thousand dollars. Gum surgery is very expensive. Dental implants are even more expensive
The single most important thing that you can do to stop gum disease from causing additional bone loss and losing your teeth is to kill the gum disease-producing germs at the base of deep pockets.
Yes, brushing and flossing must also be employed but unless you kill the bacteria at the base of the deep pocket you have done nothing to stop the progression of gum disease or periodontitis.
This what the Smile Method along with the VitaPick™ are designed specifically to do.
Even more impotently the Smile Method book has two chapters that guide you to verify effectiveness so that you are not guessing about your gum health.
