Grow Back Your Receding Gums With The Help Of These Natural Remedies!

These amazing natural remedies will help you grow back the receding gums.

The gums are the soft tissue which covers the tooth root and keeps it in place.

When the margin of the gum tissue around the tooth pulls back or wears away, it leads to gum recession, and the tooth becomes more visible. This issue leads to the formation of gaps or pockets between the teeth which are a perfect environment for the development of bacteria.

The more visible the teeth are the more painful and sensitive they become. Hence, the supporting tissue and the bone structure can get damaged and lead to tooth loss.

Usually, people tend to neglect this rather serious problem since it develops gradually. Nonetheless, knowing its symptoms is crucial if you want to treat the problem timely and successfully.

WHY DO GUMS RECEDE?

The main reasons behind the receding gum are considered to be:

– Insufficient dental care
– Vigorous tooth brushing
– Hormonal changes
– Family history of gum disease
– Smoking
– Hardened plaque buildup (tartar)
– Diabetes
– HIV/AIDS

HOW IS GUM RECESSION TREATED?

In its early stage, this issue may be treated with tooth scaling or root planing. Namely, your dentist will eliminate the calculus and will clean the area under the gum line.

Yet, if not treated on time, the only solution may be a surgery, in order to regenerate the lost tooth bone and tissue, for depth reduction, soft tissue graft regeneration, etc.

However, you can try a few natural homemade ways to treat this issue, and to avoid surgery. Yet, especially in the case of a severe gum infection, you must contact your dentist before you start using some alternative treatment.

The following natural remedies with simple herbs and spices, in combination with a proper oral hygiene and methods like oil pulling, will help you grow back your receding gums:

1. Green tea

All around green tea has major benefits. It’s a strong source of antioxidants that get rid of free radicals that can cause a periodontal disease.

Greet tea contains catechins which is a potent antioxidant that treats any periodontal disease. It strengthens up the connection between gums and teeth. It reduces gun swelling as it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Drink a cup of tea in the morning on a regular basis.

2. Aloe Vera

As it is rich in antibacterial properties, this beneficial herb will treat the inflammation, prevent further infections, and repair the damaged tissue.

Use Aloe Vera as a mouth wash. You need to mix it with some water and gargle with it after you brush your teeth. Also, you can apply Aloe Vera gel after flossing and brushing, and brush the teeth once more with it for 5 minutes. At the end, rinse well.

3. Oil pulling

This may be one of the most effective treatments. You can use sesame oil, coconut oil or clove oil. Sesame oil reduces toxins and plagues in your mouth, coconut oil fights against bacteria and diseases, while clove oil helps to prevent gum recession.

How to apply:

Sesame oil: Warm the sesame oil, but don’t overheat it. Brush your teeth and take sesame oil in your mouth. Gargle it and swirl it around your mouth. Do this for a few minutes (15 to 20 minutes if possible).
Coconut oil: Brush your teeth and then take a little bit of coconut oil and use it as a mouthwash. Once again, do the method 1 to 2 minutes and increase gradually. The goal is 15 to 20 minutes daily.
Clove oil: Gently massage clove oil into gums for a few minutes, or you can gently chew on a clove to release the oil.

4. Myrrh

You will need the resin from the Myrrh tree. That resin from the Myrrh tree is an extremely effective method to cure mouth diseases and gum issues. Moreover, it will successfully end the recession of gums and will prevent further damage.

If you have a resin, crush it in order to make a powder, or you can simply use an already powdered myrrh. Mix it with water to prepare a paste and apply it on the gums. Massage for several minutes.

5. Eucalyptus

Another multi-beneficial natural remedy. Essential oils have stronger effects than herbs as it fights bacteria and germs and infections in the mouth.

It reduces gum swellings because it has powerful anti- inflammatory properties.

Dilute with water when you use it as it is very strong. 1 or 2 tablespoons of water with 1 or 2 drops of eucalyptus essential oil. Soak your brush in the oil and then apply to gums, then gently massage for treatment and prevention of receding gums.
