It may not seem like it, but it is possible to grow back receding gums and to overcome the condition and restore your gum health. There are countless people who actually have receding gums as a result of gum disease and others develop the condition due to hereditary predisposition to the condition. Regardless of what causes the condition, it leads to discomfort and sometimes pain and even embarrassment. So if you are suffering from receding gums, then it is time to reclaim your smile and regain your gum health.
Improve Your Dental Health
The first thing you need to do, and the most effective thing that you can do at home to improve your gum health, is to improve your home dental routine. Poor oral hygiene is the most common reason for receding gums. If you allow the gum disease to settle due to poor oral hygiene, then you are opening the door to a number of health problems. Preventing tooth loss, infection, pain and compromised immune system may be as easy as following these steps:
- Brush your teeth twice daily using a natural toothpaste. Commercially available toothpastes may contain potentially harmful chemicals such as sodium laurel sulphate, which can further irritate your gums. OraMD is an excellent natural solution that effectively kills gum disease causing bacteria.
- Use a mouth rinse twice a day after brushing, but avoid mouth wash with alcohol as this can upset the Ph balance in the mouth and cause more bacteria to grow. OraMD can also be used as a mouthwash as a 2 in 1 product.
- To stop bacteria growing on the gums throughout the day between brushing, you can apply a couple of drops of OraMD directly to the gums.
Flossing is an additional step that you should add to the routine before you brush your teeth after meals. It is also important to visit your dentist twice a year for a check up and deep clean to remove plaque that brushing can’t shift. Using an all natural product such as OraMD prevents side effects from some commercial products and can effectively kill the bacteria that lead to gum disease and receding gums.
