Are you tired of dealing with tooth decay, sensitive teeth, and receding gums despite brushing your teeth twice a day? You’re not alone! In fact, 80% of Indians and South Asians only brush once a day, yet they still have stronger teeth even in their golden years. So what’s the secret?
It turns out that the problem may lie in how we brush our teeth. Aggressive brushing and excessive pressure can gradually wear away the enamel and gums, leading to various dental issues. But fear not, because we have a popular Ayurvedic routine that can prevent and even reverse receding gums.
The Morning Routine
In the morning, start by picking up your toothbrush and pay attention to how you hold it. Instead of gripping it tightly, hold the brush with two or three fingers. This simple change in grip reduces the pressure applied while brushing, making it especially beneficial for those with sensitive teeth or receding gums.
Use a circular motion for your front teeth and a back and forth motion for your back teeth. If you prefer an electric toothbrush, it automatically provides the necessary circular and back and forth motions. All you have to do is guide it along your teeth without applying too much pressure.
The Nighttime Remedy
Contrary to popular belief, brushing at night isn’t always the best choice for everyone. Instead, we recommend following this three-step remedy that effectively treats receding gums and heals sensitive teeth.
Step 1: Mouth Rinse
Prepare a simple mouth rinse by adding a pinch of Himalayan pink salt to a tablespoon or slightly more of water. Gently rinse your mouth with this solution. Not only does it flush out any remaining debris, but it also prepares your mouth for the next steps.
Step 2: Oil Pulling
Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy that works wonders for dental health. Take two teaspoons of sesame oil and crush a little over half a teaspoon of cloves into it using a mortar and pestle. This combination of clove and sesame oil is efficient in treating various teeth and gum diseases.
Strain the oil and mix one teaspoon of it with one tablespoon of water. Start by swishing this solution between your gums and teeth for one minute and gradually increase the time to three or five minutes. Oil pulling helps remove plaque, bacteria, and prevent issues like gingivitis. It also promotes the healing and growth of receding gums.
Step 3: Turmeric Gel Application
Turmeric, known for its healing properties, can play a crucial role in maintaining healthy gums and teeth. Mix half a teaspoon of turmeric with an equal amount of water to create a thick paste. With the help of your fingers, gently apply this paste to your gums and teeth, using a circular motion. After one minute, rinse your mouth with fresh water.
Following this Ayurvedic routine can significantly improve your oral health and prevent the progression of receding gums. Say goodbye to tooth decay and sensitive teeth, and hello to a confident smile!
