Getting to the Root of Gum Recession and Holistic Ways to Encourage Healing

A healthy smile depends on balanced care of both hard and soft tissues. While strong enamel receives much focus, the underlying gums and bones anchoring teeth firmly in place deserve equal attention to maintain oral functions and appearance long-term. 

That’s why addressing any signs of gum recession proving the sensitive tissues holding teeth are receding away from the enamel becomes so important. Beyond just aesthetics, recession exposes root surfaces that are vulnerable to sensitivity, decay, and bone loss affecting dental implant viability if allowed to advance. Here at Discovery Dental and Implants, we take a holistic approach partnering with patients’ innate healing abilities through lifestyle and natural remedy modifications.

Causes of Recession Examined

Recession results from a complex interplay between mechanical, chemical, and genetic factors. Improper brushing force traumatizes delicate gum fibers, while aggressive flossing risks tearing attachments. Underlying periodontitis spurs destructive inflammation through microbial biofilm toxins. Systemic conditions increasing susceptibility include genetic disorders. Heavy smoking severely exacerbates recession through vasoconstriction starving tissues of nutrients and oxygen circulation. Addressing modifiable lifestyle root causes minimizes exacerbation.

Assessing Recession Severity 

During routine cleanings and periodontal exams, our doctors gently probe gum pockets to precisely map recession depths and locations. This allows catchment and intervention before permanent bone deterioration manifests. Imaging such as intraoral photos document initial severities aiding follow-up monitoring. As recession depths greatly impact the extent of advancement risk, early detection facilitates halting progression naturally through supportive periodontal therapies whenever feasible. 

Strengthening Gums Naturally

Nutraceutical foods naturally exhibit anti-inflammatory and collagen-building benefits promoting gum healing. Nutrient-dense berries, tomatoes, green leafy vegetables, fatty fish like wild salmon, and herbs such as turmeric help counteract destructive oxidation driving recession. Moderate antioxidants through whole-food dietary adjustments complement daily oral care regimens assisting recession sites fill in at root levels on their own accord whenever possible. 

Gentle Massage Stimulation

In conjunction with switching to SLS-free toothpaste, massaging gums lining receding areas encourages blood flow replenishment through delicate motions performed daily. This supplies essential nutrients and oxygen aiding natural healing from within beneath recession sites. Stimulating herbs such as cinnamon, clove, and fenugreek further invigorate underlying connective tissues encouraging collagen matrix restoration when combined.  

Consultation at Discovery Dental and Implants

If recession advances despite nonsurgical approaches, our doctors thoroughly assess all factors behind progression individually. We explore evidence-based surgical and regenerative options such as grafts and lasers calibrated to each unique clinical situation aiming for full periodontal restoration holistically whenever attainable.
