What is the Most Common Cause of Periodontal Gum Disease
The root cause of periodontal gum disease is the overgrowth of naturally occurring bacteria in the crevices of your gums and teeth. The bacteria grow forms into plaque and tartar on the teeth. The bacteria emit a toxin that basically eats away at bone structure and gum tissue. If you do not kill and control the bacteria you may eventually lose more of your gum line and even your teeth. Don’t wait to take action.
Can Gum Recession Be Reversed?
Yes it can! If you are able to control the bacteria it gives your body the opportunity to naturally replenish gum cells and thus your gum line. It is important however to have current tartar and plaque build up removed professionally. Over time, with proper oral hygiene, overall health, and the right remedy you can see an improvement in your receding gums.
How to Cure Receding Gum Lines the Natural Way
You should be careful that you do not make your existing problem worse. Many people use mouthwash for gum disease without realizing that it often contains very harsh chemicals that irritate the gums. Furthermore, the mouthwash does not remain and have a lasting impact on the bacteria. Many toothpastes also contain potentially harmful chemicals. Have you ever asked yourself why there are government warning labels on toothpaste tubes?
For centuries cultures have been using natural oils as a periodontal disease treatment. Natural oils such as spearmint, peppermint, and almond, all in the right combination, can be a potent formula against your main culprit – bacteria. It works so well because it seeps into the gum line where the tartar and plaque are lodged. Since the oil is able to stay in contact contact with the problem area, it gives the body a chance to replenish the gum tissue of affected areas. When the bacteria is controlled, often such things as chronic bad breath (halitosis) and inflammation go away. Over time you learn to smile again without the embarrassment of a receding gum line.
