Bleeding Gums, Receding Gums
and Loose Teeth

Why it happens and what you can do about it?

Periodontal Problems (Gingivitis & Periodontitis) Perio-dontal means: "around the tooth".  It is basically an infection that happens around the tooth. 

Just tell me how to treat gum disease (click here)

Periodontal "disease" is a term that is sometimes used to describe both an inflammatory condition of the gums (gingivitis) or an inflammation around the tooth (periodontitis).  

It is second only to the common cold as the most prevalent infectious ailment. It is the major cause of adult tooth loss.  It is more prevalent in people over 50.  

Healthy gums are pink and do not bleed.

What is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is characterized by gum redness, changes in the gum, and bleeding. It is essentially painless.  

It is created when plague (sticky deposits of bacteria, mucus and food particles) adheres to the teeth, hardens and irritates the gum.

The accumulation of this plaque causes the gums to become infected and swollen. As the gums swell, pockets form between the gums and the teeth and act as a trap for more plague. It can then become sore bleeding gums when brushing your teeth. The irritated gums bleed and eventually start to recede. 

Irritation can be fought by introducing Vitamin C which fights the formation of plaque.  Formation of plaque can be due to high levels of calcium that is not being absorbed during digestion. This can be due to low stomach acid or any other inability to absorb calcium. 

(See below for Vitamin C that  can best be assimilated and used)

What is Periodontal Disease?

Gingivitis, untreated, can progress to periodontal disease or pyorrhea. The bacteria-plaque starts attacking the root of the teeth and the jawbone, and if not treated, you might even lose some teeth.

Periodontal means "located around the tooth". 

Periodontal Disease Tooth Periodontitis is characterized by localized pain, loose teeth, pockets between the gum and the tooth, redness, swelling and/or signs of infection. 

X-rays may reveal destruction of bone.   This is because the bone supporting the teeth begins to erode due to the infection. Abscesses are common.  There is sometimes halitosis, with bleeding, and often, painful gums.  

Although oral hygiene is of great importance in treating and preventing periodontal disease, it is not sufficient in most cases.  

In addition to proper dental care, good nutrition and immune system health need to be addressed if development and progression of the disease are to be controlled. 

What causes Periodontal Disease?

Bacterial plague is the causative agent in most forms of periodontal disease.  (This can be addressed, read on)  However, it is now widely accepted that poor nutrition wrong foods (refined foods such as white flour and white sugar), constipation, chronic illness, glandular disorders, blood disease, smoking, drugs, and excessive alcohol consumption as well as poor immune function make an individual prone to bacteria and thus to periodontal disease.

Some experts question whether periodontal disease is a chronic, unrelenting condition and instead suggest that it gets worse or gets better depending on the response of the immune system.

What to do about periodontal problems

Helpful Periodontal treatments:

Diet:  Fresh fruits, and vegetables, whole grains, and fiber should be the mainstay of the menu.   Vegetables & fruits enhance enzyme function. fermented dairy products, such as yogurt help maintain intestinal health.   Calcium gotten either from milk or vegetables.  However, calcium is easier for the body to digest via vegetables. 

A reduction in the amount of cooked protein eaten at one meal is wise; people who have followed a vegetarian diet for twenty years or more, show less bone loss then those who eat meat.  

Increase your intake of sardines, canned salmon, dark green leafy vegetables (spinach, collards, kale, turnip greens, mustard greens) broccoli, brazil nuts, tofu and all soy products, sunflower seeds, and hulled sesame seeds.  

It is advised to stop using or consuming items that cause calcium to become deficient and or toxic.  This includes products such as ice cream, fruit yogurt, tea, coffee, cigarettes and aluminum. 

Exercise:  Exercise that stress the long bones in the body - jumping rope, basketball, tennis, jogging, walking, rebounding on a trampoline, cycling, and dancing all effective to help with this type of problem.  Vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption, so getting outdoors in the sun is advised.   

Supplements for dental health:

Vitamin C is one nutrient thought to have a very positive effect on the mouth. Vitamin C is vital for production of collagen, the basic protein building block for the fibrous framework of all the tissues, including gums. 

Vitamin C strengthens weak gum tissue and makes the gum lining more resistant to penetration by bacteria.  For a Whole Food Vitamin C. A good form of Vitamin C that is easy for the body to use.  This WSN® Vitamin C should be taken per directions or twice the recommended for gum problems.  For more info   (This really is a different type of C)

Calcium is needed to restore any deficiencies which can result in periodontal disease.  Periodontal disease and gum disorders are forms of osteoporosis of the mouth.   For a Whole Food Calcium/Magnesium for calcium that is easy for the body to absorb and use.

How I Discovered An All Natural Solution To My Horrible Teeth and Bad Breath......That takes me less than 4 minutes a day to do

From the desk of Daniel Sanderson
May 22, 2010

Dear Friend,

Are you worried about the health of your teeth and gums? Are you certain you are using the best possible dental products available?

My name is Daniel, and I've been showing people a little known 'All Natural' solution to get healthier teeth and gums for over 7 years now.... and I guarantee I can help you too

Back in 2003, I like many of you, was suffering with horrible teeth and bad breath, I was brushing 2-3 times per day, flossing and even using mouthwash after every meal.... yet I was seeing no improvement in my oral heath whatsoever... And then it occurred to me...

"If commercial toothpastes and mouthwashes actually worked, then why do the millions of people that use them still have unhealthy teeth and gums?"

...So I set out to find my own solution

What if it was possible to create a much more powerful dental product that actually worked and that could actually transform my unhealthy teeth and gums?

So over the next few months I had read just about every single book on the subject you could imagine... and even though I knew more than ever before, I was still just treading water.

....until one day I stumbled upon a study in an old medical journal, it explained how certain plant extracts could completely kill multiple strains of oral bacteria in the mouth (the exact type of bacteria that can attack the teeth and gums) in under 30 seconds (for clinical references see below*)

I excitedly ordered all the extracts and immediately began my experiments!

After about 5-6 weeks of formulating different solutions, I'd finished, I'd created a extremely powerful 'All Natural' solution that would potentially kill the all harmful bacteria in the mouth and penetrate deep down inside the gum tissue... I also made sure the solution wasn't water soluble (unlike all the other products I'd tried in the past) so it wouldn't wash away!

I brushed my teeth with the new solution and 'WOW' my entire mouth felt great...

...But after just 2 weeks of use I noticed something else had happened, something quite special;

My teeth were now gleaming white, my bad breath was completely gone and my gums were looking the healthiest they've been in years!!!

You see; the primary cause of unhealthy teeth, gums and bad breath is the overproduction of 'bad' bacteria and pathogens in the mouth... if my new solution was stopping this bacteria from forming while at the same time being almost impossible to wash away, then I would have a extremely successful solution on my hands!

...I had to find out if I was right

I immediately listed my new solution (now called Dental Pro 7) on eBay... I made a dozen sales in the first week alone, but more importantly the feedback I received was just amazing:

Cant believe this product... felt better in two days a++++++

"This is Chris of McVitamins.com.  The treatment I recommend is one I use myself.  I had problems with my teeth and my dentist recommended that he pull some because you "can't stop periodontal disease", much less reverse it.  Well, no, I don't buy that. 

I searched and found this product.   I was very pleased with the results.  No more problems, no more soreness, no more receding gums.  And I didn't have the plague buildup that I had before.  And, I was surprised when someone asked me, what are you doing for your teeth, they are so white.  Hey, an added bonus.  You can see the above success stories.  I want you to know, it is true. 

10/25/2009 - This is an addition to my above success with this product.  I have had a long standing problem with one tooth, but didn't have any problems with it while brushing with this product   I had just a little left and had not reordered and stopped using it.(Bad idea)  I started to get a sinus infection and due to the weakness of this area, I woke up and my tooth was inflamed and hurting. I immediately ordered more and used what I had left. I brushed and it started feeling better, really fast  It was amazing.

"This is 2014, I still use it and still no problem with my teeth"
