Along with dietary improvements, regular flossing can help to prevent receding gums, gingivitis, gum pockets and gum disease.
If you avoid flossing your teeth because you don’t like how it feels, you are probably doing it wrong. With the right floss and correct technique flossing is pleasurable as well as healthy!
Watch me demonstrate my feel-good flossing method in this short video.
For more excellent information about oral care at home I highly recommend the book Holistic Dental Care: The complete guide to healthy teeth and gums by Nadine Artemis.

Has a dentist told you that your cavities or receding gums are your fault because you are drinking too much Coke, you don’t floss enough or you need to stop breastfeeding your baby? And you know that isn’t true!
I’m not going to blame you or shame you.
The underlying causes of your oral health issues are not your fault!
Nature or nurture, ancestry or environment, free will or systemic oppression, unconscious emotions or the degraded food system
These are the factors that make your teeth and gums vulnerable to disease.
Even though your tooth decay and gum disease is not your fault, it is within your power to change.
You can turn your oral health around with natural strategies and healthy habits.
