How to Correct Receding Gums Without Surgery
The separation of the gums and teeth is much, much more than a cosmetic problem or a sign of aging. “There is a direct correlation between your dental health and your overall health” (Dr. Josh Axe).
Receding Gums Cause Inflammation and Can Lead to Tooth Loss
Receding gums create a fertile area for bacterial growth which not only causes tremendous inflammation and increased separation but also weakens the bony socket causing tooth loss.
The immune reaction to the bacterial colonization of the receding gum pockets can cause a systemic inflammatory reaction called auto-sensitization, an autoimmune-like reaction.
Auto-sensitization Can Effect the Nervous System, the Heart and More
Auto-sensitization can involve many organ systems including:
- Nervous (especially causing peripheral neuropathy)
- Cardiac (causing endocarditis)
- Joints (causing arthritis)
- Renal (causing nephritis)
- Eyes (causing iritis)
- Intestines (causing ulcerative colitis)
What Causes Receding Gums & How Can You Treat Them?
Receding gums are not necessarily from poor hygiene and in fact can be from over aggressive tooth brushing. Other predisposing factors include diabetes, smoking and chewing tobacco, hormonal alterations (like puberty, pregnancy, menopause, birth control pills), HIV/AIDS, dry mouth, Vitamin C deficiency, teeth grinding, and of course genetics.
Are There Non-Surgical Options for Treating Receding Gums?
There are very few options for treatment. The emphasis has been to minimize the receding gum line complications from bacterial overgrowth through the following:
- Dental cleaning
- Mouthwashes - most of which have antimicrobial properties
- Oral antibiotics - only if overt infection is present
Surgical Options for Receding Gums is a Poor Solution
The only effort to correct receding gums is surgery: flaps or grafts. This is a poor solution for several reasons:
- Poor take (success) rate of 50%
- Only one recessed tooth surgery at a time
- Extremely painful
- Very expensive
