Just like many other topics, there are a lot of theories on the best way to handle receding gums and gingivitis. Some people swear by home remedies while others are always on the quest for the latest scientific breakthrough. To make matters more confusing, dentists and other dental professionals often have conflicting opinions as well. That can leave a person unsure of the best course of action to protect their gums and teeth. In our current social structure, most people rely on mainstream products for pretty much everything.
Can receding gums be reversed naturally? Most of us have gotten away from the natural, safe ingredients that are everywhere instead focusing on lab created ingredients that are often more harmful than beneficial. Toothpaste is one consumer item that no longer bears any resemblance to the natural product it once was.
Of course, brushing your teeth is one of the most beneficial things you can do to prevent gum disease and gingivitis. But for argument sake, take a look at a few of the ingredients that are probably in your current toothpaste. The odds are good all natural dental product is going to start looking pretty good.
- Hydrated silica
- Sodium saccharin
- Titanium dioxide
If you can pronounce those ingredients: congratulations. Most of us can’t and don’t even know what those words mean. It’s disturbing to put a substance into our mouths and, to some degree, ingest without understanding what it is. Starting with hydrated silica, this substance is a compound found in quartz and sand. It is used in toothpaste as an abrasive. Now, for a second, imagine what sand would do the enamel of your teeth. A gentle alternative sounds great for battling gum disease and gingivitis now isn’t it?
Moving on to sodium saccharin, it is exactly what it sounds like. It’s an artificial sweetener. We can all feel fortunate that it isn’t sugar. That would be really bad for the teeth. By simply switching to a dental product that contains natural, essential oils, like peppermint, the need for any sweetener is eliminated, and you get to avoid one more unhealthy compound entering your body.
Finally, on our short list, we have titanium dioxide. This ingredient is used as a teeth whitener in many commercial types of toothpaste. That doesn’t sound bad until you find out that it is also used for the same purpose in paint, inks, and cosmetics. It doesn’t sound harmless now. Avoiding these chemical ingredients while you fight receding gums, gum disease and gingivitis is easy.
Simply choose Nature’s Smile – an all natural dental product. You won’t find any gum disease information that claims those unnatural ingredients are beneficial.
