When the gums are too recessed, the teeth might get lose, and eventually fall out. This is why it is so important to pay attention not only to the special cleaning regimen of your teeth and tongue, but also to your gums.
Avery simple method if you are struggling with gum recession, or with gums that do not have a natural pinkish color, is to massage them with a toothbrush with soft bristles.
If you generally like to brush your teeth with a harder bristled toothbrush, you should buy a separate brush with very soft bristles that you will use to massage your gums.
First, brush your teeth, then floss, next comes the tongue cleaning, and as a last step, massage your gums to improve circulation and thus stimulate the growth of healthy gums.
Then, a mixture of 3 tablespoons of baking soda and one teaspoon water, will help you create a special paste for massaging your gums. You should put some of this paste on your fingers and start massaging your gums (both the inner and the outer gum lines!).
Use circular motions, and this will certainly help promoting gum growth.
Always rinse your mouth with plenty of water after using this method, and then use a mouthwash for the final rinse. People with oversensitive gums should not use this paste, as it might be irritating for the gums.
Alongside gum massage, you should also take some Vitamins that will help you grow new and healthy gum tissue. Supplements containing Vitamin A, D, and B9 will be very helpful.
Certainly, there are several oral surgical procedures that can be performed in order to restore the gum line, but first you should try for a few months the traditional and inexpensive, ultra healthy massage therapy that you can do at home.
In case of too rapid gum recession, you should consult with your dentist for the proper treatment.
