Oil Pulling: be careful if you have periodontitis
My gyms started receding because of gum disease so I thought id give oil pulling a try. It only took 5 days before every tooth in my was wobbly and gum recession is worse than ever. Now I'm looking at complete mouth reconstructive surgery. Jaw bone reconstruction, gum graph and implants for EVERY tooth. It drew out the infection that had reached my jaw bone. I didn't even know I had gum disease. I just thought I was brushing too hard or using a mouthwash with t0o many chemicals.
Hi all I'm 23 and I've had receding gums since I was 19, a lot on my lower central incisor and the a little on the lower canines.
I tried a lot of things, but I finally found something that works. Oil Pulling with Virgin Coconut Oil first thing in the morning for 20 mins rinsing with warm water afterwards to get rid of any excess oil (It contains harmful toxins and bacteria) followed by rinsing your mouth with 1/2 a glass of very warm water and 1 to 2 teaspoons of Sea Salt through the teeth and the recession areas in particular.
It will sting a lot but rinse for a good few mins until the glass is empty and don't rinse with regular water after wards I find the gums continue to heal if you do that.
I do that morning and night and also do the same Sea Salt water rinse after every meal to adjust the Ph level in your mouth so no harmful bacteria can grow at any times, I've only been doing this for two days now and my gums have grown back over 50%, when they grow back it is very rapidly and painful kind of inflamed.
I wish you all the best.
After everything I have been through and all my research, I believe the reason we all get gum disease and peridontitis is bacteria or fungus which ends up in our gums. It could be coming from decay in the teeth to start with and let me tell you you cannot take notice of a dentist if they say you have no decay, it took me 3 dentists and an oral pathologist later to find out that I DID have decay in a crowned tooth which I had for 25 years. I was told by 2 dentists and an oral pathologist that there was NO DECAY UNDER THAT CROWNED TOOTH! There was as it turned out, that bad that the tooth had to be removed. Straight away my health got better, not 100% but much better. I am now in the process of making sure I get rid of any other decay in remaining teeth, then maybe hopefully all the parasites and bacteria and fungi will be gone and hopefully then my gums will start to heal. If you have no decay for certain in your teeth you may need to do a parasite cleanse and get rid of them in other parts of your body, if you don't they keep travelling through the blood stream setting up home wherever they like, even the gums. Mora therapy is a good way to diagnose and treat any kind of pathogens. I have been coconut oil pulling with oregano, clove, thyme (they say the best for fungus) neem oil is very good and ti tree oil. Swishing with baking soda and taking internally capsules of oregano, neem and thyme essential oils. (make sure they good quality essential oils, I use doterra) For me taking 2 extra strength garlic capsules first thing in the a.m. with 2 heaped teas. diatomaceous earth and good 1/2 teas bentonite clay helps me heaps, then again I have been diagnosed with aspergillius, (a fungus) which I have no idea how I got, then who knows it could have also come from decay. Hope this info. helps anyone with a similar problem, all this has come from many hours of research and listening to oral health summits on line.
For making gums grow why did you fail to mention "Oil Pulling" with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil ???
Very effective and simple to do 3 times a day until gums are restored. Absolutely must hold in mouth for 15 to 20 minutes. It goes from an oil to a watery substance that is white colored. Then you know it worked.
Growing new gums is a slow process, but the anti-bacteria, anti-fungus, and anti-virus qualities make this a real infection fighter. Along with your good oral hygene to grow new gums, be sure to use a tongue scrapper to remove surplus build up of any bad stuff living on your tongue that would end up inside your gums by spreading.
I have gum recession, but only on ONE tooth in the bottom front of my mouth. I went to a periodontist about the gum. I've had orthodontic work done since I was eight. He told me that having braces for such and extended period of time began causing my gum recession. He also told me that a gum graft was completely unnecessary, it would purely be cosmetic. Since then I've been oil pulling, taking cod liver oil and butterfat, drinking raw milk, kefir and eating a myriad of fermented foods. My gum hasn't completely grown back, but I've only been doing this treatment for 6 months in a dedicated way. The gum is definitely more developed than it was. I used to be able to see the whole root of my tooth, now I can see much less. But braces are definitely the reason.
I do coconut oil pulling and recommend it to anyone with the receding gum problem. I take approx a tablespoon of organic coconut oil in my mouth let it melt then swish it around my mouth vigorously for 20 min then spit it in the toilet because it is loaded with toxins, rinse my mouth with warm water to clear out any toxins, then mix a 1/4 cup of warm water with approx 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and rinse vigorously till all salt water is gone. I have never found a commercial toothpaste or mouthwash that makes my mouth feel as fresh as this! I can actually see the plaque disappearing starting from the gumline upward. It is amazing to me but also exciting because my gums were almost gone and my teeth sere loose. My gums are slowly returning an my teeth are no longer loose. Good luck and happy swishing! (PS, I do this twice a day) It is challenging to donut so, so worth it.
