This is part five in a continuing series of an interview I had with OraWellness.
Part One: Why is gum disease prevalent even though we brush regularly?
Part Two: Is it possible to remineralize our teeth? And a word on oil pulling…
Part Three: What causes bad breath, and how do I get rid of it?
Part Four: How important is diet when it comes to teeth health?
Today we discuss how to heal receding gums.
Nourishing Treasures: What is the best way to heal receding gums?
Ora Wellness: We can talk about curing or healing bad breath, but have to be very careful when it comes to any other conditions, like receding gums.
The two main causes of receding gums are the presence of bad bugs that cause gum disease and brushing the gum tissue too hard, especially with cheaper toothbrushes with rough cut bristles. Given the sad fact that 9 out of 10 adults have gum disease, if we are going to create positive change and not follow the common path of gum disease in our culture, we have to take different actions than what most folks do to care for their oral health.
Nourishing Treasures: I hear you. I have some receding gums and I believe it came from the wrong tooth brushes and using baking soda.
What is the first step we can take towards healing?
Ora Wellness: First, we have to lower the populations of bad bugs in our mouths. We also have to brush much more consciously with higher quality oral hygiene tools. Our video titled How to Brush Your Teeth to Reduce Gum Disease goes into detail how we can effectively navigate to greater oral health.

Ora Wellness: Another resource that may help your readers address this very common issue of receding gums is our article titled How to Create Greater Oral Health for the Whole Family. We discuss the idea of conscious flossing and how this simple action can create massive positive change in our oral health.

I hope you liked this article. This is the fifth of several interview questions I asked Ora Wellness. Stay tuned next week when Ora Wellness answers the question, “Is flossing harmful to the gums, or essential?”
Ora Wellness supplied me with their Brushing Blend and I absolutely LOVE it. It’s a blend of bad bacteria-bashing teeth-healthy essential oils (such as cloves, cinnamon, and myrrh) in a base of almond oil. I love that I don’t have a mouthful of lather – my kids love it, too! It’s a great breath freshener.
Ora Wellness has offered Nourishing Treasures readers a FREE Bass toothbrush with your order of OraWellness Brushing Blend. ONLY when you write “Nourishing Treasures free brush offer” in the customer note section during checkout.
*One free toothbrush per order, not per bottle of brushing blend.
