Closys Mouthwash Cured My Mild Gingivitis

After getting a new cavity at every annual dental visit and trying to figure out what I was doing wrong, I ran across the now private blog of Dr. Ellie, a minimally invasive dentist who recommends a particular dental hygiene routine that includes Closys mouthwash.  Here's what I found after using Closys for 6 years now:

Pros:
  • Usually around $10-$11 a bottle.  Lasts about 8 months.  I think this is a fair price.
  • Dental hygienist said my gums look much better within 1 year of using it (along with the rest of the routine).  Previously had mild gingivitis.  Closys completely reversed it.
  • Only 1 cavity in the 6 years I've included Closys in my daily routine, as opposed to one every checkup, and this one cavity was within the first year of use.

Cons:
  • Occasionally, I get a slight metallic taste instead of the usual watery taste.
  • Does not freshen breath, at least for me.  You need to floss, brush, and use a rinse such as ACT for better breath.

Tip:
  • You don't need to use very much - only a sip from a capful is enough to swish around in your mouth for 30 seconds.

Recommended for improving gum health.  Keep in mind this was only my experience - your mileage may vary.  Questions?  Post a comment below and I'll get back to you.
