10 Simple and Easy Ways to Heal Receding Gums Naturally

Even though many people may neglect it, oral hygiene is extremely important. It affects our overall health. So, make sure you keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean.

Natural withdrawal of the gum tissue is called gum recession. This common condition exposes teeth to a lot of harm. This may lead to tooth decay, tooth loss and infections. However, this can be stopped if treated on time.

Causes may be:

  • Inflammation or bacteria in the mouth
  • 30% of people suffering from this have a relative with the same condition, so it may be genetic
  • Aggressive brushing
  • HIV
  • Tobacco products
  • Women may experience this while being pregnant or having their period
  • Poor oral hygiene

Symptoms include:

  • The tooth may seem longer, and the space between teeth increases
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Exposed roots
  • Swollen and red gums
  • Bad breath
  • Bleeding after you brush or floss

In order to prevent this, we provide you with some advice:

  • Use 3 tablespoons and baking soda as an alternative to your toothpaste
  • Take 300 mg daily of omega-3 fatty acids
  • Take septilin
  • Add one or two drops of tea tree oil to the toothpaste, and brush it that way

  • Drink cranberry juice
  • Rinse your mouth with 10-12 drops of myrrh tincture mixed with lukewarm water
