We just received an excellent question from a new customer that we enjoyed answering so much, we realized that there would be others who would also benefit from reading our answer.
This customer asked, “Just wondering when a person would start noticing changes to their gums? I know everyone is different, but what are the quickest results you have ever heard?”
So, we chose to answer the part about quickest results first, then go into more detail regarding when a person will start noticing positive changes to their oral health. Here is our answer to this excellent question…
Thank you for reaching out to us with this excellent question! Let’s jump right in…
First, we have heard many customers comment that they felt their gums being less swollen, teeth less sensitive, etc. within a few days of beginning to use our blend. However, that’s not always the case. We have had a handful of customers who have returned our product to us stating they didn’t benefit from using it. So, what’s the difference? Why would some people find such vast and fast benefit and others find no benefit at all?
I think the answer could have many factors involved. I’ll explain…
The first factor is awareness.
The extent to which a person focuses their attention on what’s going on in their mouth will determine if they notice benefit or not. This is why we strongly believe that for anyone who really wants positive change in their oral health, the first step is to get to know what’s going on in your own mouth. We created our OraWellness Mouth Map as a free download on our site so anyone who would like to navigate to greater oral health can do so simply by downloading the mouth map for free and taking 20 minutes to fill it out.
Here’s a link to an article where you can download the mouth map and access instructions on how to fill it out: The first step of dental self-empowerment
Like we state on the mouth map, if we don’t know where we are, how can we determine whether or not we are heading in the right direction? I like the example of going into a new shopping mall. What’s the first thing you look for on the map of the mall? The red ‘You are here’ arrow, right? Once we know where we are, we can set a course to go where we want to go.
So, if a person really wants to create positive change in their oral health, filling out the OraWellness Mouth Map will provide them a dated record of what they found in their own mouth. At that point, they have the ‘You are here’ arrow. Now they can do whatever they are going to do, use our product, another product, oil pulling, whatever they choose to apply to see if that particular action will help them. And in 3 months, they can fill out the mouth map again and quantitatively determine whether the actions they have taken over the past 3 months have helped or not. They will either see improvement or not. It’s very straightforward.
Why not just use a dentist’s chart?
While a dental chart is helpful, we are focused on empowering individuals with strategies, tools and, most importantly, the mindset which will help them navigate to greater oral health. We have found that filling out the OraWellness Mouth Map yourself and getting familiar with your own mouth empowers you to really know what’s going on and ideally positions you as the best person to initiate positive change.
The second factor is how a person is using our products.
If a person simply puts a couple drops on their brush and maintains the common unconscious brushing habits we all were raised with, they will see less benefit than if they apply the HealThy Mouth Blend consciously in the various ways we encourage customers to use our blend. In other words, our blend helps a person navigate to greater oral health. We know this to be true. That said, it’s up to each of us to understand how to use the blend to best support ourselves along our path to greater oral health. We have made a video tutorial showing several ways to use the blend and which strategies work for certain situations.
The last factor is the individual’s current level of oral health.
Where a person finds themselves on the continuum between terrible and stellar oral health will also impact what changes they experience. If while filling out your Mouth Map you find that you have no areas of swollen, tender gum tissue, no sensitivity on teeth roots, no recession, and no bleeding gums when consciously flossing, then you won’t see the same amount of change as someone who has more signs of imbalance in their mouth. That said, many of our happy customers do have awesome oral health and simply want a high-quality oral hygiene product that contains ingredients to help them keep their stellar oral health. Sure, they enjoy the fresh breath our blend helps to create, but they aren’t going to see the more drastic changes that someone with obvious signs of stress and infection will see.
I think this addresses the question fully. Now it’s your turn. 🙂 What are you finding in your own mouth? What do you currently have going on in your mouth that you would like to see shift to a more positive direction? What are you doing to create positive change?
We hope this helps you navigate to greater oral health. 🙂
