It means your gums are basically receding away from your teeth. It's generally not considered a good sign.

One way you can treat it is with oil pulling: http://wellnessmama.com/7866/oil-pul...r-oral-health/

It sounds very odd if you haven't heard of it, but it's cheap, easy and it works. It also involves no toxic chemicals. I would try it daily for at least 6 weeks and then see what your dentist says.

You can also treat it with a toothbrush and floss.

You sound like an expert. I have two 4mm pockets. My local dental company claims I need scaling and expensive followup. I floss like a fiend, have no bleeding or tenderness. I have bruxism, which I now treat with the inexpensive and comfortable Plackers (they hate that as they'd love to sell me a custom one that isn't covered by my dental discount plan). I'm guessing that you make your money as a dentist, but I'll still ask you for advice. Thanks in advance.

P.S. After this shock, I purchased ClosSYS rinse and toothpaste. Seems good. I also use a Sonicare (I used an old brush insert too long, but now rectified it).

Hit me with your best shot.

I am doing this for a small spot on my upper tooth that has an extremely sensitive ridge along gum line. I use raw organic virgin coconut oil. Is it OK to swallow it after 20 minutes?

I am also taking fermented cod liver oil caps with high vitamin butter.


Hope it works.

An exposure caused by loss of gum tissue and or retraction of the gingival margine from the crown of the teeth. It is common problem in adults.

But why brush with a toothbrush for 2 minutes and floss for 1 min when you can oil pull for 20mins? Plus, toothbrushing doesn't pull toxins from the blood.



Also, gum recession doesn't NEED to happen as you age if you take care of your teeth properly. I've treated 80 years olds with all their teeth and no recession.

Is this issue can be solved by ourselves with good dental habits, else need to go to a dentist?

It's not just about good dental habits. People who have perfect dental habits still get cavities and other problems. It's also about nutrition but more specifically healthy fats and specific minerals. Scroll down and read 'Nan Lee's' post here.
