These instructions are provided as a guide to patients who have
been diagnosed by a physician or dentist. These Instructions are
the result of many discussions with patients, physicians, and dentists.
They are not rigid and unchanging. Of course, we hope they work for
you. But if they don't, please contact SQUIGLE, Inc. toll-free at

- This is crucial: Use Enamel Saver® Toothpaste exclusively.
Patented Enamel Saver is free of SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) and
other irritating ingredients which contribute to bad breath. The
flavor is mild to prevent irritation of delicate tissues. Enamel
Saver® has 36% Xylitol to prevent plaque and cavities
better than regular toothpaste.
- This is also crucial: Floss twice a day, before you brush. Use
unwaxed floss. If your teeth are closely spaced, use Glide®
- Use a small headed, soft bristled brush. Apply Enamel Saver®
along the full length of your toothbrush. Brush for 2 minutes.
When you are done brushing, gently brush your tongue
(especially the back), the inside of your cheeks, and the roof
of your mouth. Then rinse.
- Don't use mouthwash (floss instead, as mentioned above).
- Don't use candy or breath mints, especially cinnamon or spearmint.
- Don't smoke or use tobacco in any form.
- If you must chew gum, chew an ultrahigh xylitol gum, such as
Xylichew® or Clen-Dent®. It is preferable to select
fruit flavor gum, not cinnamon or spearmint.
- Take a multivitamin + multimineral daily, after a meal.
(Twinlabs Daily One® is OK). In addition, take 500 mg to
1000 mg vitamin C daily.
- At the very first sign of thirst, drink a glass of water, not
sweetened drinks. Preferably, drink water frequently enough so
that you don't get thirsty.
- A short course of antibiotic or antifungal therapy is OK.
- Get sufficient rest each night.
