is it true that 4g of vitamin c per day will heal my gums? Posted on February 8, 2023 by Anonymous is it true that 4g of vitamin c per day will heal my gums?
gums dont grow back
Immunosupressents regrow gum tissue
>just shut down your immune system and get cancer to regrow your gums, bro
Just say you were wrong
Your all talking shit, I have two dentist friends and a science degree. Gums can partially regrow with some supplimentation or surgery.
There is 0 evidence dosing vitimin C regrows gums this is literal placebo at best. Vaxines don't grow gums either you dumbass, go get some boosters.
vax bros we win again
gums can be healed with bovine collagen, look it up
yes they do, I just got a better toothbrush and started flossing + pick related and completely repaired my receding gums in just over a year according to my dental hygenist, you have no idea what you're talking about
I'm not pleased with it but gums do not grow back.
recommend me a toothbrush bro
I had a skin graft done for my bottom gums, worked well.
If you have a vitamin c deficiency you're correcting then yeah. If not, you need to find out the cause and address it.
You need surgery. They thinly slice off gums from other parts and stitch them to your receding gum lines are something. Super painful and expensive. Only way though.
They don't do this anymore. Now they use a synthetic and your real gum slowly invades it and overtakes it a part of your natural gum tissue.
they get it from a corpse
depends, there are synthetic graphs now. They will take a piece of your body, likely from a redundant area, like your iliac crest, then use the stem cells to create a graph that your body is less likely to reject.
It's not from a cadaver, it's completely synthetic I think, it's called Mucograft. The periodontist tells me that over time, your own gum tissue overtakes the synthetic. I'm getting this procedure next month.
>They don't do this anymore.
Oh thank god. I remember the videos they used to show to get you to brush in grade school. Gums being cut and stretched then stapled to the tooth. Apparently one of the most painful operations, belongs in a gore thread.
i read on IST that 4g per day will work. and i think you have to keep your teeth as clean as possible. i will try it and report back
How common is this? Any dentists here know?
pretty much anyone over 25 has it a bit. switch to a soft brush and take your time gently removing plaque. remember plaque has texture of mashed potatos, when it hardens into tartar, no amount of brushing can remove it. brush twice per day as plaque hardens into tartar after about 24 hours.
long term you can also switch to a keto diet and basically never brush again
I tried using a soft bristled brush, brushed twice a day, last 2 visits to the hygienist I had some gingivitis. I use a medium bristled brush with barely any pressure on top of using a toothpaste with stannous flouride, my teeth feel much more clean.
if you concerned about gingivitis i would suggest oil pulling. you can swish around MCT oil in your mouth for 10 minutes and this will kill bacteria in your mouth. When ever i start to get a tooth ache or soemthing, i do this and it goes away in a couple days. you can also swish around salt water for a minute. i wouldnt use a medium bristled brush
its not that im concerned about gingivitis, it's the fact that I used a soft bristled brush for about a year and got gingivitis despite following all protocols. This is going beyond concern for gingivitis, I literally developed it and my hygienist had to clear it out. I also used a ADA toothpaste, regular colgate total.
I don't have any receding gums, or at least my dentist nor my hygienist told me about it.
water flossing fixed my gingivitis, it doesnt have to be an expensive one. mine cost 15 buckaroos and has worked fine for 2 years now. for the first few weeks it might be quite painfull tho
do you even need to brush if you are water flossing?
i would say yes because it doesnt clean the whole tooth, just the gunk between the teeth and under the gums.
your saliva and the mechanics of chewing food (albeit harder food like veggies) will take care of the rest. The only problem areas of anyone's mouth are between the teeth and under the gums.
Brushing, flossing, and water floss/waterpik/dental irrigation are all valuable.
Nothing is going to replace brushing and flossing. Brushing removes tartar, flossing gets between teeth (both of these break up bacterial colonies which is super important), while water flossing also irrigates the gumline and gets where neither brushing nor floss can reach.
Floss with a string
Water flossing is a meme for braces. Use a string to actually be clean.
>switch to a keto diet and basically never brush again
You'll never have a solid stool again either
Since others have mentioned stuff, I might add you might want to drink more green tea and use Coq10 (ubiquinol) gel on your gums. Some reporting their gums kinda grows back but its probably just maintaining whats still there and prevent further damage to the gums.Also, chew xylitol chewing gums, it will help produce saliva for your mouth hygiene and the xylitol will kill off bacteria causing those gum problems.
You cant heal your gums. You need surgery if they are receding, and to STOP the activity that makes them recede.
Pinhole surgery is the best option. The dentist makes a small hole in your gums and injects a collagen like material that stabilizes your gums. Its not painful, not that expensive and not gore like
lol. lmao even
>what is calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K
>what is increasing the metabolic rate
you are either top goy or top garden gnome, which is it?
Do you even know what receding gums are? your gums are not receding, they have literally been grinded away by years of abuse. take your mom science back to facebook along with your lukewarm IQ you bottom dweller
Yes thats what i wrote in my post. But that collagen has to be injected correct in order to work
I had receding gums, but I seem to have fixed the issue. From the start of the year I've drank 1.5L of raw milk every day, my gums look fine now.
For anyone who doesn't know. Taking that much Vitamin C will make you sick and give you bad shits at the least.
Ok, can I be 100% serious here? Are you guys retarded? Are you genuinely mentally unwell?
Do you think that when the dentist tells you to floss and brush your teeth regularly they're selling you something, or trying to trick you?
THIS IS BASIC FUCKING HYGIENE THAT YOU LEARN IN FUCKING PRE-SCHOOL, IF NOT EARLIER.
THERE IS NO SECRET, YOU'RE JUST NOT LISTENING TO THE ACTUALLY FUCKING PROFESSIONALS YOU STUPID FUCKING ASSHOLE!!!
Unless you can show a paper that you have some kind of Cambodian parasite up in there - you're to blame and you already know how to fix it.
Most people have receding gums due to brushing too strongly
>trust the experts
Do you know what an expert is? Its someone who memorized a 20 year old text book and got a credential. Thats it. You cannot just shut your brain off and do what ever you told. People who do this are literally getting killed and their lives ruined as we can see in the past few years. You still have to bear the burden of thinking (its actually a gift).
Also have you never interacted with a dentist that kept trying to pressure you to let him pull your teeth out? Mosto f them only care about getting paid and doing the bare minimum legally required.
who said anything about not brushing and not flossing? gum recession happens regardless
wtf are u on about
dental student here.
gingival recession is caused by your own inflammatory response to bacteria. although it can also occur by repeated mechanical abrasion such as brushing your teeth with too much force
unfortunately your gum tissue cant naturally grow back to where it was originally even after treatment
we would have to do a tissue graft which is super straightforward if there is no significant gum/bone loss
can clenching at night do it
it can but it would have to be severe and left untreated for a long time
your periodontal ligament (thing that keeps your tooth from moving in the socket) will get damaged from the heavy load on the teeth and remodel tissue over and over and over which ends up breaking down the bone and subsequently the gum tissue.
this is very very rare (probably only in 3rd world countries) but if your are concerned you can get a night guard
I probably did it for 10-15 years, teeth did move out of alignment, just had invisalign for a year to correct it, getting a smallish graft inbetween my bottom 2-3 teeth soon, the roots are good it's the good gum between the teeth that is gone
in that case it was the invisalign that caused the gum recession. thats what can happen when you moved the teeth around. im sure your dentist will do a great job with the grafts. those pesky black triangles will soon be gone!
no it was like that before, could have been smoking/drinking in my early twenties I guess, whatever, thanks man I'm really excited to get my mouth finally fixed
Yes smoking and excessive booze will do that.
what arrr ye doin matey
hehehe cum recession
That’s why dentists get furious and start rambling/shouting with foam coming out of their mouth when they hear you’ve been drinking fresh home made orange juice because the vitamin C will put them out of business.
The recession is caused by a bone loss so no.
>haven't brushed in past 20 years save for a few times here and there
>still have gums
explain this dental dongs.
mild gum disease is reversible with professional teeth cleaning and good dental care. If you have severe gum recession it won't grow back though; you need to work with your dentist to figure out what to do. If you get your teeth healthy again you might be able to live with it and not worry.
Vitamin C isn't gonna do jack shit unless you have a deficiency. Your doctor will be able to tell you this with a standard blood test.
