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.

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.
