If you are suffering with receding gums (when the tissue of the gum around the teeth corrodes and it looks like your gums have receded backwards) take heart, there is holistic hope for you!

Even though receding gums are the perfect place for bacteria growth, by including some of these simple treatments, you can regrow your gums and cut down on pain and infection.

The food we eat today is sweet and that means sugar…and that means when traces of it are left behind in our mouths after we eat it decays and recedes our gums. If this goes unchecked long enough it can lead to serious gum disease (periodontal disease).

One mistake people often make is they brush their teeth with excessive pressure because they think it will make them cleaner. This is counterproductive because it can damage the tooth enamel, which leads to receding gums.

Unfortunately, some of us have bad genetics and there isn’t much we can do to prevent receding gums, but we can slow it down.

Also, hormonal changes and unbalances can affect the gums. It goes without saying, smoking wreaks havoc on the teeth and gums.

Grinding and clenching are a problem. I workout and tend to do this so I have to wear a mouthguard.

Natural 2-Step Process for Treating Receding Gums

1. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil (we recommend this) has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Historically dating back hundreds of years, it was used for dental treatment of all sorts.

Additionally, it acts as a protective agent by coating your teeth. Just take 1 tablespoon and swish it around in your mouth for 5 minutes and then massage some into your gums.

2. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera (we recommend this) relieves inflammation and repairs the gums. Drink 4 ounces of this first thing in the morning and again right before you go to bed. Again, be sure to massage some into your gums as well.
