Complete Mouth Care System – Introduction
The Complete Mouth Care
System is a method of daily mouth care that can
help anyone (over the age of 6) prevent, stop or reverse the
majority of dental problems.
- If your teeth are sensitive - this
system can help strengthen weak and soft teeth and stop
- If you have gum disease –8-10 weeks
can heal and even reverse gum disease and many periodontal
- If you have cavities an early cavity
may reverse in 4-6 months in an adult tooth
Who needs the Basic
Complete Mouth Care System?
The Complete Mouth Care System helps teeth and gums.
Before Dental Fillings or Deep Cleanings
Some people use it to avoid problems, but even if you need a
filling or a gum cleaning, this system will help prepare your
mouth before treatment, making teeth stronger and gums healthier
– so your dentist can place a better filling or perform a more
If you Cannot Afford Dental Treatment
This system can help anyone who is unable to afford fillings or
periodontal treatment. It can help maintain mouth health in the
best possible condition, so when you return to the dentist, your
mouth will have been maintained and not deteriorated.
It’s Simple to be Successful
It ‘s easy to use this system and it will work with or without
flossing, but it’s vital to follow directions and use
the exact products recommended. Do not mix other
toothpastes or rinses into the system - it will not work. As you
begin enjoying this system of daily mouth care, the next step is
to learn how mouth acidity damages teeth and finally how diet
and digestive health are linked with mouth health.
Be certain you use the exact products
- One incorrect item will slow or void
- Do not use any other toothpaste in
- Only Original or Cool Mint Listerine
are correct for this system
- Ensure you use ACT mint or cinnamon,
and at 0.05% strength (not 0.02%)
- Do not use brand name alternatives –
even if they appear the same
A DIY method for
healthy, clean gums and teeth
Zellies Complete Mouth Care System is designed to strengthen,
clean and protect teeth from cavities and gum disease. It limits
the growth of harmful plaque bacteria, protects teeth from
acidity and dryness and promotes natural tooth repair and
strengthening. The system involves a series of well-known rinses
that are used in a sequence – once in the morning and again at
night. Delicious Zellies xylitol products help protect teeth
from acidity and dryness anytime day or night.
|Xylitol reduces acid causing bacteria
in the mouth by as much as 90% according to this 1998 study.

O, Danielsen B, The effect of Xylitol containing chewing
gum on dental plaque and acidogenic potential. J Dent Res
1998; 77: 1549 – 54)
Step One - Clean
It is important
to brush teeth in a neutral pH or alkaline mouth because teeth are
soft in an acidic mouth and more likely to be damaged by abrasive
toothpaste. Using a pH balancing rinse like CloSYS™ before brushing
neutralizes teeth and loosens food particles so brushing is more
effective. Do not use any flavoring in this rinse, as it will reduce
the beneficial effects.
After rinsing with CloSYS™ for a minute, brush your teeth using
a well-designed medium-soft toothbrush. Be sure to brush your gums,
and don’t forget your six front teeth at gum level – upper and lower.
Many people turn their wrists as they brush and miss these front
teeth. Also take care to brush the gum on the inside of back molars
along the side of your tongue.
For best results, use a Zellies soft bristle toothbrush with
a head that fits your mouth and basic sodium fluoride toothpaste
like Crest® ® Original Paste. Do not use a paste with
whitening agents, tartar control additives, stannous
fluoride, sodium monofluorophosphate, or triclosan. It is vital
to disinfect your toothbrush after brushing by dipping it in Listerine®
Antiseptic. If bacteria are irritating your gums, brushing
may make them bleed. This is part of the healing process. If this
happens; just gently brush the area that bleeds.
|Did You Know
Bacteria live on your toothbrush! Be sure to frequently
clean your brush by swishing the head in Listerine and rinse
in water and air dry. Never share toothbrushes and do not
store in an area near an open toilet.
Step Two - Disinfect
Immediately after brushing, rinse your mouth with Listerine®,
an antibacterial rinse effective against immature plaque bacteria.
Use a Listerine® that carries an ADA shield of acceptance, such
as Original, Cool Mint and Vanilla Mint. Do not use Listerine® that
advertises plaque or tartar control, or whitening, which do not
carry the ADA shield of acceptance. If the rinse seems too strong–
you can dilute with water until you’re used to it.
Step Three - Protect
The final rinse is fluoride, which helps remineralize and strengthen
teeth. We recommend ACT ® Anticavity Fluoride. Avoid ACT ® Restore
since it contains alcohol and has a different fluoride concentration.
Fluoride should be kept on teeth as long as possible so it’s best
to rinse immediately before bed and after eating in the morning.
|How often do you clean your teeth?
Brushing every 12 hours is important because bacteria
that grown on teeth become tubular or worm-like after this
amount of time. These harmful bacteria grow and multiply
in the deeper layers closest to the tooth. More germs attach
on the outside, forming a barrier that cuts off oxygen,
causing germs to change and become anaerobic. At this point
they become damaging cavity-forming bacteria that take minerals
out of teeth and inflame gums.
Day – Get the Power of Xylitol
Xylitol is a delicious weapon in the fight against dental disease.
It looks and tastes like sugar but has 40% fewer calories. When
xylitol dissolves in your mouth, it makes a sweet sugary solution
that is alkaline, the opposite of damaging acidic. Studies show
that eating two teaspoons of xylitol each day (6-10 grams) for 5
weeks will remove harmful germs from plaque on your teeth and in
6 months 95% of these germs will be removed from your mouth.
Protect and strengthen teeth by eating 100% xylitol mints or
gum after meals, drinks and snacks.
Most people notice a cleaner, fresher mouth within the first
week of using Zellies Complete Mouth Care System. As plaque bacteria
absorb xylitol, they become less sticky and usually are easily brushed
off teeth with a toothbrush.
If you have routine plaque and tartar, you will begin to notice
a difference in your oral health in about 5 weeks, as harmful plaque
bacteria are removed from the surfaces of teeth. After 6 months,
you should have your teeth cleaned in a dental office.
If you have heavily infected plaque deposits when you start using
Zellies Complete Mouth Care System, dead bacteria
may form a dark band of stain along the gum line. It can be easily
cleaned off your teeth at your next dental cleaning and is unlikely
to return if you remain on the system.
What People are Saying about Dr.
Three months later! I've been using your system and
loving it. My teeth feel so clean, my gums are nice and
pink, and that little bump that I thought might have
been an abscess is almost nonexistent!
Thank you for your quick reply and help! Although
I've only been on your system one week, I already can
tell the difference in the feel of my teeth. Thank you
You are doing such a wonderful thing!! My husband has
been using your system for 10 months. He is a night
teeth grinder and was having issues with wearing the
enamel on his teeth before he started the system. He no
longer has any more wear of his teeth, and says that his
teeth feel much stronger. The other really neat thing is
that my husband has always been dissatisfied with the
color of his teeth (yellowish). He tried crest white
strips for approximately 7 days without any improvement
in color. Since he has started the system, the color of
his teeth has improved immensely!! They are whiter than
they have ever been!
Let me just say THANK YOU!!! My dental health is
improving every day! I have been using your
system (exactly) for 10 months now. I have a
2-year-old daughter who eats xylitol after every meal
and I brush her teeth with xylitol solution at bedtime,
and her teeth are beautiful and cavity free.
I have been on the Dr. Ellie system for seven
months. I had a checkup yesterday and the dentist
could find NO cavities. On my previous checkup,
the dentist had found 5 or 6 cavities that he wanted to
drill and fill. I declined at that time and was
fortunate enough to find your system. Therefore,
all cavities had healed in the intervening seven months
of being on the system. My kindly dentist was
befuddled - I was relieved and pleased.
Fabulous news! I have just come from a checkup
and cleaning at the periodontist and I am happy, happy,
happy! I never thought that this could happen, having
been told that “once a periodontal patient, always a
periodontal patient.” None of my dental care
providers ever talked to me about acidity or even know
anything about xylitol. But thanks to you
everything is so very improved and, best of all, there
was no more talk of surgery. Over the past 5
years, I have seen 3 different periodonists and there
has always been talk of flap surgery, which I have
rejected because I am so very afraid of the
procedure…BUT TODAY, I am so very, very relieved. Thank
you so very, very, much Dr. Ellie! I am more
enthusiastic and determined than ever and I am spreading
the word! I am proud to be part of the “grass-roots”
component, using word-of-mouth to spread the message
about how everyone can have great oral health! With
immense gratitude and respect.
I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Phillips about 6 weeks
ago. I sat at a dinner at which Dentists were asked to
give testimony on several subjects. Ellie gave dramatic
testimony about her oral hygiene technique and its
benefits. I became a convert immediately! The next
question is why I became a convert.Ellie exhibited a
very thorough knowledge of oral biofilm. She exhibited
such a burning desire to help those who cannot afford
some of our expensive dental treatment. She knew things
about Xylitol and Sorbitol and Mannitol that I had very
little knowledge of (all of which was corroborated by
another meeting I attended 5 weeks later). She knew how
to heal sick teeth without a dentist. I had been
hearing reports on this subject for a few years My
intuition told me this woman is “for real”. She is all
about the patient and not about making big bucks with
dentistry. She is some one I would want covering my
back in a foxhole. My conversations with her in the
last few weeks have only served to confirm my initial
judgments about her.
I have been using her technique personally for only
about 2 weeks. I can only tell you that it is amazing.
I have been brushing and flossing daily for about 45
years, and I can only say that her technique makes my
mouth feel absolutely wonderful. It is almost
addicting. We are in the process of converting every
patient in my office to this technique. By the way, I
have been a dentist for 41 years.
I wanted to write to let you know that I just got
back from my six-month cleaning. I couldn't be happier.
I have never gotten so much praise from a hygienist
before: "I am looking for tarter and there just isn't
any." "I give you an A on home care." "There
hasn't been a speck of blood." "This is one of the
easiest cleanings I have ever done." It was
awesome. No cavities detected in the examination
from the dentist either My favorite part of the visit
was when the hygienist, sounding a little concerned,
asked me: "Now, how often do you brush." I
reassured her that it was only twice a day - in the
morning and before I go to bed. She smiled and
said, "Good. I just wanted to make sure you
weren't brushing too often." I absolutely love your
system. One of my favorite benefits was that I
don't have "morning breath" anymore. It's pretty
much completely gone. It's a great feeling to wake
up in the morning with clean teeth and clean mouth.
I wish that I would have been on this system years ago.
I will definitely be staying on your system - and
encouraging others to be on it as well.
I have been using your system for the past month now
and I'm so AMAZED at the results. My teeth have never
felt cleaner- I feel as if I just had my teeth
professionally cleaned! It's a WONDERFUL feeling. Also
my teeth look whiter, I have less sensitivity, my teeth
are just in such great shape and are improving more and
more each day. Anyway I just wanted to let you know how
well your care system is working for me. I wish there
were more dentists like you in the world!
I thought I would update you on my son's teeth. We
saw our hygienist a week or two ago and she was very
relieved that we had not consented to $3500 worth of
work for our 8 year old under anaesthesia. She was
extremely impressed with your system and the results she
could see in his mouth. Although some of his baby teeth
had significant damage prior to starting your system,
they are much stronger now and there is no sign of decay
in his adult teeth!!! She's recommended an experienced
preventative dentist for us and insisted that we tell
him about our hygiene protocol. She even e-mailed me
the contact information for the parents of a four year
old who she'd seen in her office. They were very
interested in talking to me about your approach. So, all
in all I am an immensely relieved mother! Thank-you
again for guiding us through this.
Not only are my teeth whiter, but they feel surreally
clean. Sorry I can't type more, I'm on my mobile device
and handling my 20 month old!
Since my primary concern was the size of the pockets
that were developing in my mouth (which have been
reduced, thanks to you) I never mentioned how my teeth
and gums look. I could tell after about a month
that my gums were definitely getting pinker. After
about a month and a half, I thought my teeth were
getting a bit whiter. Not the bright white that I
see some people have, but a definite progression away
from the yellowish hue my teeth normally had. While I
was someday hoping to possibly get my teeth whitened, it
was never a major goal of mine. I just wanted to
be able to keep my teeth. However, now that they
are whitening on their own, I feel like I’m having my
cake and eating it too (followed by a few
Zellies)! Thanks again for all you do (and for this
fantastic system). I've been on your program for about
2.5 years (full program with the correct rinses in
correct order as well as xylitol). As a testament to
your program, I missed two years of dentist appointments
and, when I finally went yesterday, all I needed was a
few stains removed! I have acid reflux and tons of
stress, so I use your program to maintain my currently
good oral health! Thank you again. Your system is
amazing and far cheaper than dental problems!
I was really hoping I would be able to send you this
Email, and it feels fantastic to finally be able to.
It was tough for me to have faith in something when
everything else I’ve tried previously didn’t work.
Well, I’m so happy that I put my faith in
you. Yesterday, I had my dentist appointment and I have
to admit that while I was hoping for the best, I was
expecting the worst. To my relief, the depths of
my “pockets” went down. Both my dental hygienist
and dentist were curious to know what I was doing
different, since over the last two years, the pockets
were getting worse and worse (even though I was flossing
every day, brushing twice a day). Both of them said I
should keep doing what I’m doing, and that they couldn’t
wait to see how things were in 6 months (especially
since I’d only been doing the new system for 1.5
months). Even as I’m writing, I have a few tears just
thinking of all the fear and frustration I’ve had over
this. It wasn’t difficult to see that I would soon
be losing my teeth, which I’ve tried so very hard to
keep. So, I want to extend my heart-felt thanks
for all that you do. Without you, I have no doubt
that I would have lost my teeth in the next few years. I
will tell everyone I know about your system.
I have been on your system for 5 months and am
totally amazed with the results. I no longer have
irritated gums that used to bother me on a daily basis
even though I flossed and brushed 3 times a day and had
dental cleanings every 4 months. My receding gums are
also very much improved. Thank you so much for your
I have been using your system for about a week now
and I am definitely impressed. I was an avid
flosser-and always got "stuff" from between my teeth.
Since I've been using your system, flossing is downright
boring. Nothing is between my teeth!
MORE EXCELLENT NEWS! My husband went to his
periodontist today for his 6-month checkup. He asked the
hygienist how things were looking. “Really good”,
she replied, and commented on the fact that pockets that
were previously in his gums had gone away. He had
extensive gum surgery years ago to treat periodontal
disease, and he had significant pockets, but today,
everything seemed to be healthy. I think that the best
part is that the periodontist came in at the end of the
appointment. After looking around he said, “Your
cleaning regimen seems to have improved.” And of
course, this is absolutely true! Thank you so much for
being the Champion for dental health that you are!
