DWQA QuestionsCategory: Healing ModalitiesWhy did my client’s gum recession that started 8 years ago resolve with regaining healthy gums? Was it due to starting a regimen of using a mixture of salt and baking soda as toothpaste, using a mouthwash of 2% food-grade hydrogen peroxide for a time, or doing ayurvedic oil-pulling to draw coconut oil through the teeth for about 10 minutes each morning? The only thing he continues to do is brushing his teeth with salt and baking soda.

While all of these procedures have some benefit to help maintain oral hygiene, each for separate mechanistic reasons, it is the brushing with baking soda that is of greatest importance here. That alone would have turned the tide and promoted healthy gums and teeth and is a good demonstration that for a person with vulnerability to such problems, to have this turn around and then maintain normal healthy appearance and functioning is a true achievement that can be attributed to the ability of this simple remedy to keep potential degradation in check.
