Thanks to Livionex for a tube of toothpaste to review with affiliate links. All opinions my own.
Update, April 2015: I’m happy to report good results from my last trip to the dentist. The hygienist mentioned that a couple of places, my “gum score” went from 4 to 3 (I’ve learned you want a lower number). I told her I’d been using a new toothpaste, and she was curious. I showed her a Livionex flier. So, this has made me a true believer. I purposely didn’t mention anything about the toothpaste to her before she worked on my teeth, because I wanted her unbiased opinion. Oh, and if you’re looking for a coupon? Read through the comments; a dental employee has kindly provided a 10% off code.
With age comes … work. Hard work.
I remember a few years ago reading something about back fat. Back fat??? I thought. Some people actually have fat on their backs? How could this be? It almost seemed like a moral failing.
And then, one day I hopped into bed and wrapped my arms around myself to conserve warmth. I soon noted that my fingers had something to grab. Oh no! I was apparently developing back fat!
My back becoming flabby is apparently not my only bit of decline. About a decade ago, the dental hygienist asked if I flossed every day. Hmmmm. I’d never been asked that before. Did my gums not look so good?
In the last year, the same hygienist presented me with dental picks and suggested I use them.
Oh dear. How much further can things go downhill? Apparently, more upkeep is necessary as we age for various body parts — one of those being our teeth and gums.
No longer can we skip brushing or flossing. They become necessities if we want to keep our mouths healthy for the years to come.
So, a mention of Livionex Dental Gel toothpaste caught my eye in a magazine recently. Why? After all, there are many toothpaste choices in the stores. And honestly, most all of them are far less expensive than Livionex.
But Livionex has some powerful inducements in its favor:
- it’s over 2.5 time more effective than leading toothpastes in removing plaque from teeth, which results in better gum health and less gum bleeding
- it remineralizes teeth better than other toothpastes (think: it strengthens tooth enamel)
- it doesn’t contain abrasives, but it does contain edathamil, which breaks up bacterial biofilm (plaque) quite effectively
Livionex seems a bit different from “regular” toothpastes in that it’s runnier. You don’t use much of it. It doesn’t foam. It’s more a liquid than a paste.
My teeth felt really clean after using it.
The real “proof in the pudding” will be what my hygienist says at my next dentist visit, in a few months. I’m going to see if she notices a difference in my gums’ condition, and if so, I think I’ll be investing in Livionex as a gift to myself this year. The reviews on their site, written by dentists, are pretty convincing. I plan to update this post in late April with my findings, so be sure to check back.
If you have issues with your gums or with excessive plaque, check into Livionex and see how it works for you.
Livionex — Where to Buy, How to Save
Livionex is only available online — not in stores. If, like me, you’d like a coupon or code to use to bring the cost down a bit, ask your dentist/hygienist for a professional discount code which will give you 10% off Livionex at www.LivionexDental.com. They can go to the website and follow instructions to register as a dental professional. There is no charge for the code to them. You can also purchase Livionex Dental Gel at Amazon, so if you’re a Prime member (or order $49+), you can get free shipping.
