How You Can Prevent Gum Disease

Healthful Living
  1. Eat a variety of fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, and whole grains to provide the teeth and gums with needed exercise and supply the body with the vitamins and minerals that are essential for dental health. Although all vitamins and minerals are essential for the proper formation and continued health of the teeth, adequate vitamin C intake is particularly important for the prevention of gingivitis and pyorrhea. Vitamin A seems to control the development and general health of the gums; a lack of this vitamin often results in gum infection. Vitamin A is also necessary for healthy tooth development in children. Minerals important for healthy teeth include sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, and magnesium.
  2. Eat plenty of high-fiber foods, such as whole grains, vegetables, and legumes.
  3. Avoid sugar and all refined carbohydrates. Sugar causes plaque buildup and inhibits the ability of white blood cells to fight off bacteria.
  4. Brush your teeth with goldenseal powder every day for at least one month. You can open up a capsule of goldenseal and mix the contents with toothpaste, or use a liquid extract in the same way. After one month, change brands of tooth paste. Don’t stay with the same brand; some brands may irritate the gums.
  5. Change toothbrushes every month to keep the disease in check, and keep your toothbrush clean between uses. Bacteria live on toothbrushes. There are special devices that kill bacteria that you can keep your toothbrush in when not in use. read more. . .

  1. Floss your teeth at least once a day. Unwaxed dental floss is good for getting under the gumline.
  2. Scrape your tongue each morning after you brush and floss to remove bacteria. Use a tongue scraper (available in health food stores and some pharmacies) or the back of a spoon. This is important because bacteria thrive on a moist tongue.
  3. Use your fingertips to massage your gums to increase circulation.
  4. Interdental-space brushes are good for cleaning the spaces between teeth.
  5. Try using a dental rinse called Plax to help loosen plaque. Unlike mouthwashes, this is designed to be used before brushing. Listerine also helps to remove plaque.
  6. Use an electric tooth brush such as Sonicare, or a very soft natural-bristle toothbrush. Be sure to brush your gums and tongue as well as your teeth at least twice a day. The most effective way to get under the gum line is to tilt the toothbrush so that the bristles are at a 45- degree angle to the gum, and brush in a forward and backward motion using short strokes across the gums to remove bacteria.
  7. If inflammation is present, run very hot water over the toothbrush to soften it before brushing, and be gentle until healing is complete.
  8. Open a capsule of vitamin E and rub the oil on in flamed gums. This is very healing and helps to alleviate soreness.
  9. For relief of toothache pain until you can get to your dentist, apply ice to the gums, Clove oil can also be helpful (see under Herbs, above).
  10. Avoid taking antibiotics. The mouth is the hardest place for them to work, and they destroy needed friendly bacteria in the colon. Try goldenseal first (see under Herbs, above).
  11. In addition to the products described above, we recommend the following tooth and gum products. Most of these can be bought at health food stores.
Nature de France (Pierre Cattier). Contains a clay base for healing.
Nature’s Gate. Contains baking soda and sea salt, which is effective against plaque and gum disease. Also contains vitamin C.
Peelu. Contains a natural tooth whitener derived from
• the small peelu tree, native to the Middle East and Asia. People have chewed its branches for centuries to keep their teeth white. Also contains natural flavor, fruit pectin, sodium lauryl sulfate (from coconut oil), and vegetable glycerine. Unlike many over-the-counter tooth-whitening products, this does not irritate or damage gums.
Herbal Toothpaste and Gum Therapy with Baking Soda from The Natural Dentist. Fights plaque and gingivitis.
Herbal Crème de Anise. Another good product found in health food stores.
Herbal Mouth and Gum Therapy Mouth Wash. Good for rinsing the mouth between brushes.
Tom’s Natural Toothpaste. Contains a natural calcium base. Features myrrh (an astringent herb) and propolis.
Weleda Salt Toothpaste. Contains baking soda and salt formulation with medicinal herbs and silica.
 Applying aloe vera gel directly to inflamed gums eases discomfort and soothes the tissues.
Strained chamomile tea and calendula flower tea are both soothing and help to heal gum tissues.
Clove oil is good for temporary relief of tooth and/or gum pain. Simply rub a drop or two of clove oil on the affected area. If the oil is too strong in its pure form, it can be diluted with a drop or two of olive oil.
Echinacea, hawthorn berries, myrrh gum, and rose hips help to keep down inflammation and enhance immune function. You can apply these herbs directly to the inflamed areas as a poultice or drink them in tea form.
Goldenseal destroys the bacteria that cause periodontal disease. Take 3,000 milligrams daily. Or place a dropperful of alcohol-free goldenseal extract in your mouth, swish it around for three minutes, then swallow. For inflamed gums, place 5 drops of alcohol-free goldenseal extract on a piece of gauze or pure cotton and place this on the inflamed area. Do this immediately whenever mouth sores or inflammation starts, and you will be amazed at the results. In severe cases, it may take three to five nights for sores to heal. Be sure to pack the gauze or cotton tightly up under the inside of the front of the mouth between the lips and gum.
Caution: Do not take goldenseal internally on a daily
basis for more than one week at a time, as it may disturb normal intestinal flora. Do not use it during pregnancy and use it with caution if you are allergic to ragweed.
Sage is good for its anti-inflammatory properties. Boil 2 tablespoons of dried, crushed sage leaves in one cup. Of water, steep for twenty minutes, strain, and rinse your mouth several times daily. Tea tree oil, rubbed on the gums, helps to prevent and treat gum disease.
Caution: Do not take tea tree oil internally.
Thyme is a natural antiseptic that reduces the level of bacteria in the mouth.
Use liquid chlorophyll to rinse and massage gums daily.
