1. Replace your toothpaste with this simple “secret” formula.
You will start to improve the health of your teeth and gums immediately. No kidding, this secret removes harmful bacteria that cause gum disease and eventual tooth (and even bone) loss for just a few pennies per day.
The secret is brushing using a formula of baking soda, sea salt and peroxide (or colloidal silver if you still have metal filings).
2. Get your teeth properly cleaned on a regular basis (2 to 3 times per year)
The “secret” is even more effective after your teeth and gums have been cleaned to remove the irritating plaque and tarter and remove the bacteria hiding below the gum lines. In fact, it works so well that some patients with serious gum issues have even avoided extensive periodontal scaling or lanap surgery by consistently applying Dr. Paige Woods' formula at home after a deep cleaning.
3. Get a full dental health evaluation from a natural dentist.
Your teeth and gums are living parts of your body. They affect your general health just as your general health and life style affect your teeth and gums.
A natural dentist, such as Dr. Paige Woods, is trained to evaluate your dental health from a holistic perspective. She has e a broad set of tools to help you improve your general health while offering the best chance to save your teeth and gums.

Healthy Gum “Secret” Recipe
The Secret consists of both DRY and WET ingredients.
(i) Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) – either regular or pharmaceutical grade (available at our office). If you are sensitive to sodium, then use potassium bicarbonate. AlkaMax is a good substitute.
- Himalayan salt, fine grind (available at our office) or
- Bio-Salt, or
- Celtic salt, or
- Regular table salt, or
- Parkelp, a granulated kelp, available in a package or bulk at health food stores, or
- Sodium-free (potassium) salt for salt restricted diets.
Combine your dry ingredients in a small jar with a lid in the following ratio: three (3) parts Baking Soda and one (1) part salt
Shake this dry mixture to blend well. Keep this dry mixture in your bathroom. You will be using this every day.
When you’re ready to apply the Secret Recipe, pour between a teaspoon and a tablespoon of this DRY mixture from the container into your palm.
Liquid will be added to the dry mixture in your hand to create a paste each time you’re ready to do “The Secret.”
For liquid, you can use either:
- Colloidal Silver – safe if you still have mercury amalgam fillings, or
- Hydrogen peroxide – only if you have no metal (mercury/amalgam) fillings in your mouth, or
- Aloe Vera
Adding such products as Amazon Herb’s Una de Gato (a natural antioxidant) will help too.
Drop a bit of the liquid into the dry mixture in your palm to create a thick paste. You will learn from experience on how much of your RECIPE to use.
Again, the key items are Baking Soda, Salt, Hydrogen Peroxide (or Colloidal Silver if you have metal amalgam fillings).
- Load a bunch of the mixture onto the soft brush. Angle the brush 45 degrees to where the tooth meets the gum (the sulcus junction).
- Push the loaded brush as far as you can into the area where the tooth meets the gum (sulcus). Do not cause yourself pain.
- Use a vibrating motion (very small wiggling motion) so that the bristles that are forced into the sulcus remain there as you vibrate. It’s an agitating type of motion. Do not use wide circular motions like scrubbing a floor or washing a window. Repeat this action as you move along the gum line for three to five seconds at each spot on both the cheek and tongue side.
As you apply more of The SECRET mixture to the brush, be sure to continue where you left off on the gum line. Repeat this procedure until you have completed both upper and lower gum lines. Whenever necessary spit out the mixture and saliva. There is no need to rinse afterwards, unless you want to.
The soft brush is the applicator/loading instrument that is used to get the recipe into the sulcus.
The recipe does the work, not the brush; the brush forces the recipe into the sulcus. Doing the above on a gradient approach will obtain healing in the sulcus. Do it once a day until you can gradually increase to twice a day. When you are able to do it twice a day for two weeks in a row, your gums should have become very tough (this is good) and should have a pink-white color (this is also good).
The healthy gum recipe creates an environment in and around your teeth in which the harmful bacteria can’t live (they can’t stand oxygen and/or silver water). The recipe neutralizes the acid environment in the sulcus (which is created from the waste products of the bacteria). These harmful bacteria don’t like the alkaline, or neutral, environment created by the salt, baking soda, colloidal silver and/or hydrogen peroxide.
TOOL #2 – THE BUTLER RUBBER TIP STIMULATOR
Do not begin using the Rubber Tip until you can brush twice a day with the recipe above and your gums are now tough and a pink-white color. This would minimally be two weeks after you start this program.
The rubber tip is used to shrink the swelling around the teeth. This swelling redness, bleeding, odor, etc. is referred to as periodontal disease. Periodontal refers to ‘existing around gums and teeth.’ Use the rubber tip on both the cheek and tongue side with maximal contact of the rubber in the triangular portion of the gum between the teeth.
This instrument serves the same purpose as the muscles do in your body. You are literally exercising your gums. Here’s how it works. Blood carries food to the cells and takes waste away from these same cells. Without the muscles, the blood would merely pool in the body because of gravity. As you exercise the gums, nutrients and blood are carried to the gums and then away from the gums creating strong circulation and therefore good, healthy, long-living tissue.
It’s true that the heart (a muscle) is the main pump for this system, but in no way can it do the complete job. The muscles play a major part in helping to carry nutrients and remove waste. This is why it’s important to stay physically fit if you want to live a long life. Staying physically fit means keeping one’s muscles toned so they can apply pressure and thus motion to the blood vessels that carry the supplies to, and the waste away from, the cells.
So, when a person has the symptoms of diseased gum tissue, it generally means that he is not getting enough food to, or waste from, the gum tissue. For disease to be present, this lack of circulation has been present for a long time.
It is known that the gums have an extreme power to rebound back to health within a few short weeks, if regular and proper attention is given to them. That is why the rubber tip is one of the keys to The Secret.
HOW TO USE THE RUBBER TIP
- Push the rubber tip in between the teeth – straight in – at the triangular piece of gum between the teeth, so that it slides up on top of this gum triangle.
- Push down (lower teeth) or up (upper teeth) as hard as you can, within reason. Do not cause yourself pain. Some discomfort may be felt, however.
You’ll notice that the tip of the stimulator is at an angle. This is so that you can lay the half inch of the tip against the flesh between the teeth. Lay the rubber tip against the gum so that all of the rubber part is against it and stimulate. You’re not just putting the tip end between the teeth. THIS IS A VERY KEY POINT. Then gently massage the V-shaped gum area with the tip.
NOTE: Imagine rubbing a small spot on your arm for a minute or two. It will get red, after you quit. What you have done is brought blood to that area. That is what you want to do with the rubber tip.
Then, gently massage the V-shaped gum area with the tip. Push the rubber tip up, down or sideways left and right, circular for (10) ten seconds. Do this on the inside and outside of the row of teeth, wherever there is gum that lies between your teeth.
Move to your next tooth and begin the stimulating process again. If you still have all your teeth, you would have 60 places to rub (inside and out). So 60 x 10 seconds is 600 seconds, or at least 10 minutes of treatment time.
Now, before you decide that this is too much time, realize that after you learn how to do this, it could easily be done while reading, watching TV, while being driven in a car (we suggest you only do this in front of close friends) or after your evening meal. Time does not have to be your enemy. Be creative in finding the time to improve your dental health.
Note: To take a few minutes each day to properly care for your teeth and gums will save you many hours in a dentist’s chair.
TOOL #3 DENTAL FLOSS (DENTAL TAPE, RIBBON OR STRING)
The third instrument is dental floss, also known as tape or ribbon.
The reason flossing is the third instrument recommended (and not the first) is that flossing is not therapy, it’s a maintenance procedure. The brush, along with the recipe and rubber tip, provides therapeutic healing. By the time you get to using floss, you are healed and can now maintain that health.
With regard to flossing, the thicker the string, the more surface area that can contact the interior of the sulcus – this results in a more thorough cleaning. It’s true that you can break up and remove a lot of the bacterial colonies with the brush, but nothing gets in between the teeth like dental floss, it’s just a mechanical fact.
Here’s how to floss:
- Pull out 30 inches of floss. Wind most of that around the middle finger of one hand, and the tail-end around the middle finger of the other hand
- Pinch the string between the thumb and index finger of both hands, leaving one to two inches in between. As you floss, continually unroll a one to two inch span of clean string from the finger that has the most string over to the middle finger of the other hand. Be willing to waste a few feet of floss so that you can practice.
- Use your thumbs to direct the string between the upper teeth. Use your index fingers to direct the string between the lower teeth. The key to the whole process is the ability to use the index fingers and thumbs to manipulate the string into a C shape halfway around the tooth so that it maximally contacts the outline of the sulcus between the teeth. The string must go beneath the gums and as deep into the sulcus as possible while still not cutting the gums.
