There Is Natural Help For Receding Gums!

Do you suffer from receding gums?  You're not alone. A good percentage of the population does.  The problem is that the dental procedures to fix the problem are expensive and can be painful. If you're like me, I try to cut costs and remedy many problems by myself. I've found that the internet is a useful tool!  

Receding gums can be caused by many different things.  Brushing too hard, grinding your teeth, gingivitis, periodontal disease and even heredity can contribute.  But, take heart! There are things you can do at home to prevent and even help slow the process.  The following are some home remedy ideas that I've gathered from the web:

  • Oil pulling -       Sesame oil is an anti-inflammatory and may possibly heal cavities!                                       Coconut oil cleans the mouth of harmful bacteria and is said to aid in the                              regrowth of gum tissue.
  • Clove oil -         Used as a mouth rinse it is an excellent disinfectant and has anti-                                            inflammatory properties.  It is also widely known to temporarily reduce                                  the pain of a toothache.
  • Green Tea    -   More as a preventative: Drink a cup every morning to help remove                                        bacteria and free radicals which can cause gingivitis. 
  • Aloe Vera Gel - You can actually brush your teeth with this for a healing benefit or mix it                                 with water as a mouth rinse.  Probably one of the better options, in my                                   opinion.  
Please note: Prevention is always the best way to go and it is always recommended that you see a dentist at the first sign of a problem!  

Keep Smiling!
