Does Glycerin Prevent Remineralization?

Dear Dr. Ellie:

Does glycerin prevent remineralization? My research - mostly a Dr. Judd - claims it does. Do any of the products in the CWT contain glycerine?


Dear H:

Dr. Judd is not my authority - he was a chemist with some good advice but I tend to disagree with much of what he says and I think looking at little pieces of the puzzle can get very confusing.

I "discovered" a particular system of mouth care - during 35 years as a clinical dentist. I have recommended this system to thousands of people, given seminars about it and had a multitude of testimonials from real life experiences. People have experienced total healing - using this system of care. This is not an ego trip nor a money making venture.

In my book I described the reason teeth decay and how and why this system stimulates natural healing - see . My book is endorsed by many dentists, hygienists, pharmacology professionals, and the US Surgeon General. It is the truth about teeth - and this system explains why you can stimulate natural healing by using these products.

I have no connection or monetary interest in any of the mouth rinse or toothpaste companies that I recommend. You can be certain that I would not recommend a system with such passion if it did not work to stimulate natural healing.

If you start to dissect the products and search for this and that ingredient - you may search all your life and not find the answer. Many awful products are on the shelves of "health food" stores ...they contain some good ingredients but in a paste that is too abrasive - so the good is outweighed by the bad ingredients.

I found this system backwards / in reverse! I found it as a dentist - while looking at teeth.

I asked people with good teeth - what do you use? I implemented changes for people with bad teeth - and they went from bad to good in an amazingly short time. I have recommended this system to thousands of people - young and old and the results are always great.

I cannot give you the confidence to jump into using my system. I can only recommend that you try it and see results for yourself.

Thanks so much for your question,
Happy New Year,

Your link to your "system" doesn't work (404 error), and you never even remotely answered the question about whether or not Glycerin interferes with or prevents re-mineralization of the teeth?

The truth is that I don't know for sure.
I have heard the people who say it does.
It is not in any of the products that I recommend.

If you are trying to re-mineralize teeth - I suggest the products in my system.

Thanks for the "heads-up" about the broken link - I believe is fixed now.

In my personal experience, I prefer Dr. Ellie's system - Dr. Judd's system made sense to me logically (the toothpaste I used at that time left a heavy coat) and it seemed to work immediately, but then my teeth couldn't have looked worse after a few days of using them (increased sensitivity too). Upon searching the internet, I have came across Dr. Ellie's system and even though I was skeptical about fluoride, I decided to gave it a try - I didn't have closys at the moment and it still worked! THE NEXT DAY, the enamel seemed more replenished. Speaking of glycerin - when you make a soap, there's this thing called "superfatting" - this is adding a little bit of extra oil than what can neutralize the amount of lye so that the soap is soft to use on the skin. I'm yet to see a soap that states how much the soap has been superfatted on the label - it may be softer on the skin if it has been superfatted, but I think it leads to more glycerin content of the soap thus leaving film on teeth. Granted, I didn't do the vitaminC/baking soda and monosodium phosphate because it was just impossible to get monosodium phosphate and I wasn't sure how much vitamin C is needed. For now though, I will be sticking with Dr. Ellie's routine.
