Home Remedies For Gum Disease Receding Gums Treatments



Causes Of Receding Gums

Nearly all cases of receding gums are caused by the condition periodontal disease, or gum disease.

A Couple Of Factors Potentially Causes Receding Gums:

  • Plaque is the leading cause of most gum disease—as the plaque builds up on the teeth and under the gums, it releases a toxin that destroys the sensitive tissues and causes inflammation making the gums recede.


Gingivitis is another form of receding gums that is caused by plaque and may evolve into periodontitis. At this stage, the bacteria have reached the bone that holds the teeth. After that, the teeth are weakened and may even fall out or need to be removed by a dentist. The reason is a plaque, which is a colorless, sticky film of bacteria that forms on a continuous basis in the teeth. Understand that if plaque is not removed by flossing or brushing by, produces toxic compounds that can irritate the gum tissue, causing receding gums and gum disease.

In this initial stage of receding gums, the problems can be diminished, because the tissue and bone holding the teeth in the area were not affected. But if the inflammation is not treated, it can become periodontitis and cause permanent damage to the teeth and jaw bones.

The Symptoms Of Receding Gums  Are:

  • Redgum,
  • Sensitive
  • Swollen, which may bleed during brushing.

Another sign of the disease is a retraction or indentation of the gums, which gives teeth an elongated appearance. Gingivitis can form pockets between the gums and teeth and are accumulated debris and food plate. Some people may have bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth, even if the disease is not in an advanced stage.

Several Leading Causes For Plaque Buildup Are:

1) Improper brushing techniques- The tendency to brush too quickly, or not make contact with all surfaces.

2) Not flossing — Plaque can build up between the teeth and push up into the gums.

3) Eating acidy or fatty foods; sticky and sweet foods also adhere to the teeth and cause plaque buildup especially if left on the surface for extended periods of time without brushing.

  • Grinding teeth— if you find you are grinding your teeth at night see your dentist for a mouth guard to prevent gum disease and other problems associated with this habit.
  • Over abrasion, while brushing— in some cases brushing too hard can actually damage the surface of the teeth allowing the infection to get the gum line.
  • Treatment of gingivitis— some procedures used to treat gum diseases can also cause the gums to recede more.
  • Prolonged tobacco use or use of snuff— the harmful effects of tobacco in any form can cause many mouth and throat issues as well as receding gum lines.
  • Inappropriately placed piercings— while rare, some piercings on the tongue or lip if placed in places that can aggravate the gums, can cause the gums to recede.

Receding gums do not usually enter advances stages quickly. It usually takes years and appears at first as a simple reddening of the tissue, followed eventually by bleeding easily upon pressure such as brushing.

Although often starting in young adulthood and even in some cases childhood the more serious effects become apparent most often in adults over the age of 40. 3 out of 4 adults have some form of the disease, and if left untreated it leads to bone loss and ultimate loss of teeth.

Four Indian police, two militants killed in Kashmir attack: police



SRINAGAR (Reuters) – Four Indian paramilitary policemen and two militants were killed in a gunbattle that ensued after militants stormed into a police training center in Kashmir on Sunday, a police official said.

At least two militants entered the building at around 2:30 a.m. at Letpora, south of Srinagar, Rajesh Yadhav, a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) spokesman told Reuters.


The militants fired indiscriminately and lobbed grenades before heading into the center, Yadhav said.

He said two militants and four police were killed in the gunbattle.

SN Srinvastav, special director general of the CRPF, said that there could be one or more militants still hiding.

“We hope that we will conclude the operation as soon as possible”, he said.

S P Vaid, director general of Jammu and Kashmir police, said that a search operation was going on, adding that they had received tip-offs about an impending militant strike in the Kashmir for the past three days.

“They (militants) were trying. They probably could not get a place and time earlier. So, they struck last night,” Vaid said.

Militants have targeted police camps in Kashmir in recent months. Eight Indian police officials were killed when Jaish-e-Mohammad militants attacked a security camp in southern Kashmir in August.

Indian troops have killed 206 militants this year, Vaid said. Last year’s total was 150.

India accuses Pakistan of training and arming militants and helping them infiltrate across the Line of Control that divides Kashmir. Pakistan denies those allegations.

The South Asian neighbors have fought two of their three wars since independence in 1947 over Muslim-majority Kashmir, which they both claim in full but rule in part.

New year could bring record low temperatures to U.S. Midwest, East Coast



(Reuters) – Bitterly cold weather will usher in the new year for much of the United States east of the Rocky Mountains this weekend, bringing record low temperatures to the Midwest, making travel difficult and putting a chill on New Year’s Eve celebrations.

The mercury in New York City’s Times Square was expected to drop to about 10 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 12 Celsius) with a wind chill at nearly 0 F (minus 18C) during the final hours of 2017, the National Weather Service said, testing the willpower of hundreds of thousands of New Year’s Eve revelers.

In the heartland, next week could bring low temperatures last recorded 130 years ago to parts of Nebraska, said David Eastlack, a meteorologist with the weather service. That includes a record low for the date of minus 22F (minus 30C) for Tuesday.

“The bitter cold is going to be dangerous,” he said in a phone interview, warning residents of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa to avoid venturing outside or taking a car trip. He said that the wind chills will be near minus 35F (minus 37C), a level when frostbite could set in within 10 minutes.

The weather service predicted lows would hit minus 20F to minus 30F (minus 7C to -34C) from Montana into the Dakotas and Minnesota, well below average.

Temperatures could drop to around 0 F (minus 18C) as far south as the northern border of Oklahoma on New Year’s Day, and into the minus 30s near the Canadian border on Sunday and Monday, the service said.

The arctic air from Canada will also bring subfreezing temperatures to U.S. Gulf Coast cities such as Biloxi, Mississippi.

 Icy roads will make travel difficult over much of the United States, from the south-central states of Texas and Oklahoma and eastward over Arkansas, northern Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama through the New Year’s weekend, the private AccuWeather forecasting service said.

Weather was expected to remain much more mild on the West Coast, with temperatures forecast in the low 70s in Los Angeles over the next few days.

Without applying them directly on their lips, they swatch a couple of colors on their wrist and think they find the right match. However, once they get home and apply the lipstick on their lips, the reflection they look in the mirror does not go according to their expectations.

Do you get tanned easily or your skin is already tanned? Look for answers to these questions before jumping to the next step.


Once you figure out the outer tone of your body, it is time to examine the undertone. Look for the color of your vein. We humans usually have three types of tones: warm, neutral, and cool. If your veins are blue or purple then you have a cool undertone. If your veins are green in color then your undertone is warm. However, if you can’t decide whether you have blue veins or green then you probably have neutral undertone.

Gold and Silver Jewelry

If you are still not able to figure out what undertone you have, you might as well switch to examining the kind of jewelry that fits best on your skin. Does your skin looks better when you wear a silver jewelry or are you more comfortable with gold? People who can easily sport these two are the ones with neutral undertone. Silver jewelry looks good on cool tone whilst gold on warm.

Everyday Color

Now let’s choose a lipstick for you. The best way is to find a color that is at least two shades darker than your lip color. Apply a lipstick you think is right on your lower lip and compare it with your bare natural upper lip. If you think that there is slightly difference, then you have found the perfect color. However, if there’s a lot of difference then you need more options. All users can get 20% Off on Teleflora Coupon Codes.
