Natural solutions for gingivitis or gum disease

What is gingivitis or gum disease?

Gum disease or gingivitis covers a continuum of symptoms such as bleeding gums, gum recession and gum pockets which may or may not proceed to ginigivitis and eventually periodontis.  Left untreated the consequences can range from losing to teeth to heart disease.

Are you looking for natural solutions to managing gingivitis (gum disease) that are aligned with your unique body, history and circumstances?

The holistic approach is gentle, non-invasive and preventative as well as effective at relieving bleeding, stabilizing gum recession and reversing gum pockets. 

When you understand the unique combination of factors that influence YOUR gum health, you can stabilize your gums, prevent or reverse gingivitis, and keep your teeth safe without surgery or other dental procedures.

Mainstream dentistry responds to these symptoms and stages with aggressive cleaning to remove bacteria and surgery to repair bone and soft tissue. These procedures are painful, expensive and disempowering.

When you understand the unique combination of factors that influence YOUR gum health, you can stabilize your gums, prevent or reverse gingivitis, and keep your teeth safe without surgery or other dental procedures.

 

Gum disease can be caused by any combination of the following factors.

One of these influences alone is  unlikely to cause gum disease.  However, where there are symptoms of gingivits or gum disease it’s likely the result of two or more risk factors accumulating.

External influences on gums

  • toxins in the environment
  • medications causing dry mouth or bone loss
  • amalgam (mercury) fillings
  • root canal toxicity
  • teeth extractions
  • aggressive dental hygienist cleaning
  • poor quality dental procedures
  • wearing braces
  • wearing a night guard for bruxism
  • ill-fitting veneers
  • tongue or lip piercing
  • TMJ disorder
  • teeth grinding and clenching
  • pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • poor brushing technique

It’s probably pretty straightforward to identify what, if any, external factors are influencing your gingivitis or gum disease.

Internal influences on gums

  • mineral deficiency
  • mineral imbalance of phosphorus and calcium
  • A, D, K or C vitamin deficiency
  • stress
  • eating disorder
  • loss of identity
  • fear of visibility
  • suppressed emotions
  • childhood trauma
  • epigenetics (family trauma)
  • past life trauma

 

 

 

It’s not always easy to know what kind of internal factors could be underlying your gum symptoms.

 

 

To help identify internal factors that may be causing your gingivitis, ask yourself:

 

  • Are your symptoms only in one or two parts of your mouth, or are all of your gums affected?
  • Is there a family history of gum disease?
  • Are you on a restricted diet of any kind?
  • Do your gum symptoms flare up more in certain circumstances?
  • Are you living the life you want?

These are the kinds of questions I explore with my clients.

Living teeth need living food

The approach to a teeth healing that I advocate involves getting nutrients in their original context, from eating real food.  The isolated nutrients in supplements, especially when synthesised rather than extracted, lack the complex synergies and the activating qualities available only in whole foods and combinations of foods. These synergies and activating qualities enable our bodies to turn the nutrients we eat into the hormones and proteins that teeth and gums need to be strong and healthy.

Yoga for Receding Gums

Most people are so used to carrying tension in their jaw that they aren’t even aware of it.This easy yoga hack can be incorporated into any level of practice. It is good for your teeth and gums because relaxing those muscles allows blood to flow more freely, carrying nutrients and oxygen to the teeth and gums. It also helps make sure that you am not clenching your teeth, which puts pressure on the enamel.

Metaphysical teeth: Self-help strategies for oral health

Metaphysics is the study of abstract ideas, concepts and systems.  There is more to teeth and gums than their existence as physical objects within our bodies. Economics, aesthetics, psychology, spirituality, meridians, family stories and cultural myths are just a few...

Stop tooth decay naturally

Holistic teeth healing is different from almost all the dental advice you’ve ever received.  It starts from the principle that the health of our teeth and gums is tied to the health of the rest of our body, in a two way interaction. In order, to understand holistic teeth healing strategies, you really have to understand how teeth, and the rest of your body, are connected.

Seeking within for toothache meaning

Learning to listen, and to trust, your intuition can play a significant role in holistic teeth healing.  Knowing how to read your own body and trust your own thinking can enable you to be communicate your boundaries and priorities more effectively to your dentist.
