  1. Change your diet and reduce your sugar intake. Studies in the British Medical Journal suggest that a change in diet can actually reverse bleeding gums. Increase the consumption of foods richer in calcium (such as cabbage, kale, broccoli). Avoid drinking sugary and high-carbon beverages, as sugars cause excessive tartar formation, which can result in caries and gum irritation.
  2. Add vitamins and supplements to your diet. Micronutrients are essential for bone health and to prevent inflammation. Some vitamins help build saliva, which prevents bacteria from staying on their teeth. Foods that help promote salivation include bananas, brussels sprouts, and peas. Vitamins you should consume include vitamin B, D, magnesium, and iron.
  3. Eat foods with natural probiotics. Foods rich in probiotics include kombucha, kefir, and fermented foods such as kimchee and sauerkraut. These foods stimulate the production of healthy bacteria in the mouth, which are needed to prevent the build-up of dental plaque and tooth decay.
  4. A pH imbalance can create an environment for bacterial prosperity. Beverages such as coffee create a pH imbalance and provide an ideal environment for storing infectious oral bacteria. If you drink coffee daily and suffer from receding gums, replace coffee with green tea, as it contains polyphenol (known as catechin), which acts as a powerful antioxidant and has several anti-inflammatory properties that prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and improve oral health.
  5. Get used to the new oral care regimen. Have you heard of a technique called oil pulling? This ancient technique consists of misting the oil (sesame, sunflower, or coconut oil) in the mouth for 20 minutes. Oil pulling significantly reduces plaque and gingivitis.
  6. Brush your teeth twice a day, for example with ZeoZoe dental products. Don't forget to floss and create a mouthwash with a combination of water and sea salt or clove essential oil: pour boiling water into a glass and let it cool to lukewarm, mix 3/4 teaspoon of salt into the water, rinse your mouth with water and then spit it out.
