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
– Hardened plaque buildup (tartar)
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.
