How To Regrow Your Receding Gums

Receding gums is the phenomenon that occurs when a part of the gingival tissue surrounding the tooth is destroyed, revealing the tooth more and more until its root can be seen. Today you will find out natural remedies to regrow your receding gums. 

There are several factors that cause gingival withdrawal, including: genetic inheritance, periodontal disease, aggressive teeth brushing, hormonal changes, tobacco and oral hygiene insufficiency.

Symptoms that should be taken into account are: sensitivity of the teeth, dental caries, uncovered roots, swollen gums, gingival bleeding and hale.

Here are some natural remedies against receding gums:

Aloe vera – also known as the “miraculous plant”, is an effective remedy against this condition. Apply a natural aloe vera gel on the inflamed gum to relieve pain. The gel helps tissue healing and has an easy anesthetic effect. Aloe vera increases the hydration of the tissue from the oral cavity and reduces the unpleasant odor. To treat gum retraction, put a little gel on the toothbrush and gently massage the gums.

Rinse with oil – sesame, coconut or sunflower oil are used as “mouthwash” to treat dental caries. By vigorously strolling these oils through the oral cavity for 20 minutes a day, all the toxins in the mouth will be removed. Using natural oils, avoid any side effects and save money. Rinsing your mouth with oil is also an effective treatment for gingival retraction.

Green Tea – contains catechins, a natural antioxidant that fight against bacteria that cause periodontitis. A cup of green tea every morning will reduce gingival infection and improve oral health and hygiene.

Smirna – comes from tree species belonging to the Commiphora genus. Strengthens teeth and gums and reduces gums retraction. Smirna can be used as a toothpaste, powder or mouthwash. You can purchase toothpaste and other herbal dental products from the internet or herbal stores.

Lemon oil – is great for detoxifying the body. It’s an antibacterial agent with antiseptic qualities. Careful! Daily lemon consumption isn’t recommended because citric acid corrodes enamel. This oil should be used as a mouthwash early in the morning. Lemon oil kills most bacteria and stops gingival withdrawal at the same time. Lemon oil helps regenerate gingival tissue where it has been destroyed and stimulates the creation of new tissue where it’s missing.
