Gum Disease

Healthy gums are pink and do not bleed. 

updated 11-7-19

What is gum disease?  

It’s called 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.  Irritated gums bleed and eventually start to recede. 

This irritation can be fought by introducing Vitamin C which fights the formation of plaque.  

What to do about gum disease problems:

Gum problems need to be addressed before they get worse and become periodontal disease.  Periodontal disease can create loose teeth and a lot of health problems.

This is due to the bacteria that comes along with too much plague. 

The key dietary recommendation on gum problems is to avoid sugar.  Sugar is known to significantly increase plaque accumulation by depleting Vitamin C.  Sugar destroys vitamin C.

Phase-out soft drinks.  Canned soda contains excess phosphorus, a mineral that could lead to the leaching of calcium from your bones.   Calcium is first robbed not from your hips or spine but from your jaw leading to tooth loss.

Deficiencies of vitamin C, bioflavonoids, calcium, folic acid, or niacin is related and can make it worse 

Anything that improves health overall and the body’s ability to build health will affect the mouth positively. 

Did you know Bleeding Gums are Associated with your Hormones?

They most often occur with:

  • Menstruation
  • Contraceptive pill
  • Certain stages of pregnancy

Hormones are communication factors between your organs. When they aren’t in balance, your health is out of balance.

People with hormone issues often have dental health issues. People with gum disease will suffer from digestive issues.

Slow loss of children’s first teeth can be a sign for example of hypothyroidism.

And when your digestive system isn’t working well, look at that persons immune system.

In pregnancy, we see the gut microbe change to one that is more characteristic of a type II diabetic patient. That’s because microbes balance hormones, the immune system, and nutrient stores to help make a healthy baby!

Helpful Nutrition:

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 is gotten from food.  Calcium is easier for the body to digest via vegetables. 

Vitamin C is one nutrient that has a very positive effect on the mouth. Vitamin C is vital for the 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. 

A good form of Vitamin C that is easy for the body to use as it is whole food nutrition. 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.  

It is essential 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, cigarettes, and aluminum.

But calcium to be used needs other nutrients.  Read about Bone Health – Calcium/Magnesium

Treatment for Gum problems:

Natural Toothpaste

The major cause of all gum, tooth, and breath problems are the overproduction of plaque bacteria and pathogens in the mouth… a solution was stopping this bacteria from forming while at the same time being almost impossible to wash away, then it would have an extremely successful solution on my hands!

The Pro Dental 7 liquid is easy to apply and takes up only two minutes of your day (it can be worked in to your normal tooth-brushing routine).  There is a 100% satisfaction money back guarantee. So you can try it out and see the results for yourself.

The creator of Pro Dental 7 says this:

I started researching countless books and websites when one day I came across an important document I found in an old medical journal; it explained how certain plant extracts could completely kill multiple strains of bacteria in the mouth, in under 30 seconds I excitedly ordered all the extracts andimmediately began my experiments!

After about 5-6 weeks of formulating different solutions, I’d finished, I’d created an extremely powerful solution that would potentially kill the all harmful bacteria 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; after just 2 weeks of use I was amazed; my gum infection had cleared up nicely

But that’s when I noticed something else had happened, something quite special; my teeth were gleaming white, my bad breath was gone, and my gums looked healthy. 


“I never get bad breath anymore, my gums no longer bleed when I brush them and they are now pink and healthy

— Anne. S

“Guess what? I don’t need to see the hygienist. The dentist said that my mouth seems to have had a miraculous recovery”

— Rose

“I no more have bad breath; gum bleeding has reduced drastically in just 3 days. In short, it is working great”

— G, US

Feedback.  I have been using it for 1month plus and yesterday visited a dentist. First time I am told gum looks good! And healthy!!  Thank you so much I was worried I am going lose my tooth soon.  Good job! 

-Kind regards  -Vasuke Singapore’

am so impressed with Dental Pro 7 that I sent it to my three children for their birthdays.  I use it every night before bed and the two teeth that bothered me for the past year are not bothering me anymore. 


The Active ingredients in one bottle of Dental Pro 7 is estimated at over 700% more concentrated than the leading antibacterial dental gel.


The price of Dental Pro 7 for a 2 month supply for $59.97 + $5 shipping

Yes a professional dental solution for under $60… you probably can’t even get a dentist to ‘look’ at your teeth for that price.   Each bottle is 10 ml.

The cost also includes any assistance you might need to ensure that you get the best possible results.  (Please tell me if you want to try the formula so I can make sure I keep in touch and assist you).

And it’s really not expensive if you realize how long it lasts and how it handles the problem. I’d much rather use this as a dental solution and not have to have my teeth “professionally cleaned” every six months.
