Receding Gums, Treatment And Prevention


There’s nothing like a nice smile. Unfortunately, it sometimes feels as if everything we eat and drink discolors our teeth or makes our gums recede. And while discoloration can be remedied fairly easily, a receding gum line may be much more difficult. The good news is that there are things we can do to help our teeth from looking gross. The remedies include some of the following ingredients:

  • Aloe vera
  • Lemon essential oil
  • Rose vinegar

Receding gums don’t always need to be treated in a dentist’s office. There are some natural remedies that can be used at home in order to control the deterioration of the gums and teeth.

Read on for the eight natural and easy remedies.

#1. Use Aloe Vera: Aloe vera is the green plant filled with a jelly-like substance with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have shown that putting the gel directly in the mouth and using it as a past to brush your teeth, and/or mixing it up with water for a mouthwash has the effect of whitening your teeth and keeping your gum line healthy.


#2. Use Lemon Oil: Add a few drops of lemon oil to your water and gargle with it on a regular basis. This will help you prevent recession of the gum line because of its ability to stimulate and increase tissue formation. Make sure you don’t ingest it.


#3. Stop Smoking: This habit is linked to innumerable types of cancer and also adversely affects your oral health. The reason fro this is that nicotine discolors your teeth. If anything, this is yet another amazing reason to quit smoking.


#4. Don’t Brush Your Teeth Right After Eating: We all know that brushing your teeth is something that we must do in order to have good oral hygiene, however, brushing too soon after eating can damage the enamel in its weakened state.
