Scaling and Root Planing…. Do You Really Want It Done?

Hello David,

I was just told I need to have this done in the two upper back quadrants. I am probably going to buy your book first.

As I was looking at your information I read about an alternative to drilling? And now I cannot find it again. I was also told that I had one cavity that is close to the root. Can you please tell me what that is so I can research it?

I had neglected my teeth in the last five years as I was a caretaker for my fiance and father prior to their passing. My dentist, a really good one…open to things…said that he often sees bone loss in caretakers due to stress. I thought that was interesting.




Hi Sandy, thank you very much. I think the book would be very helpful to you as it tells the story about how I was able to avoid the Scaling and Root Planing (SRP)treatment. Professionals may tell you that there is no long term damage from this treatment – but when I think about the mechanics of it, I’m not exactly sure how there could not be any long term problems as a result of this treatment.

Now, I’m not saying you should disagree with your dentist – but second opinions are always an option!

I’m glad that I know what I know and I do share this knowledge in the book. I don’t rely on any one tool, but I use a variety that I talk about in the book and some I talk about in your free report: How To Stop Gum Disease!

So there are no excuses, just go get them both! 🙂

Ok, for your other question – This one is a bit tricky as it requires a complete paradigm shift. Your teeth are living tissue – and as such it only makes sense that the body should be able to repair them right?

Another author ( not a dentist and I am not one either) has written an entire book on this subject, You can get it here.

Good luck Sandy, and please do stop back and tell us about your progress!
