Gum disease

Postby Giatead » Thu Jan 14, 2016 11:42 pm

Hi.. I feel ashamed to admit that I have not been to the dentist. I am currently 18. I used to brush on and off, and I got my scaling done in school. I have just recently went to a family dentistry, Sierra Dental, Calgary and they did not say much. They did state I have gum disease, although how far along I am, I'm not sure. They said that I should floss and brush daily, you know, the usual. Now, I brush thrice a day, floss once or twice. My question is, is my gum disease, is curable or do I need to see a periodontist to have treatment done?

I feel for ya because I had that too. I'll try to give some general advice:

BEFORE BRUSHING THE TEETH, BATH THEM WITH THE FOLLOWING:

Oil pulling: You will need COCONUT OIL, pure, unrefined, organic for this. Scoop out about a teaspoon full, let it melt in mouth and when it does swish with it for 20 min making sure it gets sucked in between the teeth (as to pull it through the spaces of the teeth). It's a type of fat that 'attaches' to the bad bacteria (which are lipophillic ; attracted to attach to fats). Then spit out. (Not in sink or toilet as it can eventually clog.) For spit out, you can keep a can of old coffee grinds and spit it out in there.

Warm salt water mouth bath: Warm salt water. This will also help draw out toxins (germs) involved with gum disease. 5min

Hydrogen peroxide: Swish and again 'pull' or suck through teeth. 5-10 SECONDS.

OK, yes, this is going to take some extra time even before you brush your teeth. But the objective is for the solutions to remove a lot of the bad bacteria that make gum disease. When you are swishing and sucking the bathing solutions through the teeth spaces (and also on surface of teeth), the solutions are going to do things like dismantle the bacteria and help break up or soften where they deposit on teeth to irritate the gums so that it's easier to remove with brushing and flossing. Also, people with gum disease type problems have a HIGHER POPULATION of the TYPE of BACTERIA associated with gum problems. Hence, you 'go after' the bacteria FIRST with the bathing solutions and do that BEFORE brushing.


Brushing: Don't brush too hard and not in back and forth 'sawing' motions. Use, up and down motion with soft tooth brush. Better with electric tooth brush. Over aggressive brushing with a sawing motion can wear down the gum tissue.

First brushing:

Use a non-scented clear bar of glycerin SOAP. Yes. I know that sounds crazy BUT that also helps break up the BIOFILM on the teeth (called plaque). Before spitting it out, FLOSS so you are also kind of 'scrubbing' between the teeth with the soapy solution.

Second brushing: You use what ever tooth paste you usually use.

Mouthwash: Not really needed as you've just BATHED the mouth with germ killing stuff BEFORE brushing.

Note: when I say 'second brushing' , I'm meaning right after the first (soapy) one done after the mouth bathing routine (as opposed to a brushing later in the day).

WHEN to do this whole regime that does take some TIME:

Either in the morning OR at night before going to bed. Before going to bed could be preferable simply because you might have the extra time to do the routine then and also, this is going to cut down the bacteria population that can regenerate itself while you are sleeping.

When brushing and flossing at other times during the day as you say, you are doing, you just do that with your regular tooth paste.

Do the routine for a month or so. You should see some improvement.

Keep in mind that this routine is basically an 'alternative' dental therapy (for gums) meaning your dentist is not going to 'prescribe' it or suggest it to you. No 'special' products here that dental industry sells and it gives you the chance of fixing your gum issue yourself (by going after the bad bacteria with these solutions) before you go running in for periodontal treatment.
Please Note: NO PMs please.

Thanks. Looks like the OP did not even come back to look for a response.
