"Stellalife works seamlessly with our practice philosophy and our patients’ needs. Our hygiene program utilizes saliva testing to identify and target specific bacteria in our patients’ mouths that we know contribute to inflammatory disease, such as cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s. Stella life allows us to reduce these bad bacteria, while preserving the good bacteria and avoiding harsh systemic effects. We also use it to help in the recovery process after dental surgeries, allowing patients to need fewer pain meds. We also find that it offers a more holistic approach to some painful and difficult to treat gum problems. We are very pleased with the results our patients get from the entire Stellalife product line.” -- Dr. Elana Shlansky
