Everyone wants to have a healthy beautiful white smile. Unfortunately, many people, without knowing it, suffer from gingivitis, the mildest form of periodontal (gum) disease. If this condition is left untreated, it can lead to advanced gum disease called periodontitis. Sometimes gum disease is caused by another type of infection in the body, but with all other types of gum disease, it can generally be treated and healed in a matter of 1 to 2 weeks. If you have ever had to have root canals or have metal fillings, you, too, should follow these instructions for a healthy mouth and to stop gum disease before it starts.

It all begins with your diet. When you eat junk foods that lack any real nutritional value, and highly acidic sodas, it literally rots your teeth and gums from the inside out (read more about dangers of sodas). You need to eat the right foods while you fix your gums. Ideally, when you continue to eat right you will be able to keep your gums, along with the rest of your body, healthy from then on.

Eating fresh, raw, organic veggies is the most vital part of your diet, with organic fruit coming in a close second. Think of every other food as third. You should remove all processed, refined food from your diet, especially sodas, as these are so acidic they leech the minerals and vitamins from your teeth and gums as you drink. The same applies to sugar filled foods, most breads, and white rice. Drink green tea, which is loaded with healthy antioxidants, and in addition to garlic, try adding more mushrooms to your diet. You should also add anti-inflammatory herbs to your diet such as ginger, cumin, turmeric, and rosemary.
