Natural Remedies for Receding Gums

Gums recede from teeth exposing them to decay and toothaches. Symptoms may include inflammation, infections or boils. There may be pain associated, or no pain at all. Symptoms may also include boils or cankers and bad breath. Medical treatment includes antibiotics (side effects) and surgery (symptoms may return).

Natural outlook is observing that the gums are related to diet, hygiene, mineral deficiencies and circulatory disorders. Using calcium citrate liquid (1 tablespoon, twice daily) may assist.

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Natural Remedies for Toothaches

Toothaches are tooth pain caused by tooth decay on the outside, under the gums, at the tooth roots or bones in the jaws. Dental treatment gives the option of filling cavities, pulling teeth or doing root canals.

Causes are poor dental hygiene and poor diet, or lack of assimilation of nutrients, especially calcium. I have found that toothaches and teeth problems in general are a lack of calcium, or calcium absorption problems. Other causes may be facial neuralgia (trigeminal neuralgia) that radiates into the face and teeth. This neuralgia may affect healthy teeth.

The natural way is to help the body to repair itself. The first thing to try is Calc phos 6X as a cell salt (10 tablets 2 times daily). Next, use liquid Calcium magnesium citrate (1 tablespoon twice daily), getting at least 1200mg of Calcium. Many customers have seen relief in a day or two.
