Are Your Gum Pockets Getting Worse? Here’s What To Do

Are you noticing that the gums that sit against the roots of your teeth are slowly becoming detached and are no longer firmly attached to your teeth? Is food debris getting stuck in the crevices of your teeth and gums? Are you dreading going to the dentist because of what they might say? Are you simply delaying doing anything about it because you just don’t know what to do?

We first want to say, we completely know what you’re going through. You are not alone; this condition affects millions of people worldwide. 

How does a gum pocket form?

If you do not regularly and efficiently rid the mouth of bacteria, it will lead to a build-up of plaque around the teeth and gum line. If not appropriately and quickly removed, it will turn into hard calcified tartar which only metal implements can remove. You will need to book an appointment with your dentist or dental hygienist to remove it. 

If left untreated, the bacteria continue to populate the calcified tartar and to exude acidic, toxic wastes, causing small lesions in your gums and causing your gum tissue to inflame. This is known as gingivitis and is the first stage of gum disease. 

The inflammation and swelling is your body’s response to the infection in an attempt to kill the invading bacteria, but infected gums cells also die in the process. Your inflamed gum tissue is now the perfect place for more plaque and tartar to hide, and for the infectious bacteria to increase.

Gum infection isn’t limited to the gums that you see in the mirror.  It also spreads alongside the tooth’s root, and when these cells die, you start to lose tissue that connects the tooth’s root to the jawbone.  In the mirror, it can appear that the gum tissue is still in place, but they’re merely lying against the tooth’s root without being attached to it.  The depth of the unattached gum tissue alongside the tooth’s root is called a gum pocket.  As a gum pocket deepens, it threatens the viability of all the structure that supports your teeth, including the gums, the periodontal ligaments and even the jawbone itself.

How do you know if you have gum pockets?

Usually, you will first find out that you have gum pockets when your dentist or hygienist measures between your teeth and gums with a periodontal probe to determine how deep your pockets are. 

The trouble with gum pockets is that you cannot usually see them as the gums still look as though they are attached to the tooth. And there’s also no pain associated with the deepening of the pocket. Gum pockets should be taken seriously so it is very important that you get your gums checked out by a dentist in order to prevent tooth loss. 

Gum pockets are a manifestation of periodontal disease, which started off as gingivitis, so as soon as you feel inflammation and swelling of the gums we recommend increasing the diligence of your oral care routine, and adding some oral care practices to deal with the bacterial assault.  If it becomes severe, then we recommend booking your dentist or dental hygienist appointment right away.

Good-Gums herbal formula is here to help

The ingredients in Good-Gums tooth and gum formula are specifically designed to help your body heal itself naturally. After using Good-Gums, many of our customers notice fewer and shallower gum pockets and feel encouraged by the improving numbers when the dental hygienist measures their pocket depths. They finally feel in control of their oral health!

Good-Gums not only supports the growth of healthier gum cells but has herbal ingredients that soothe sore gums; myrrh and peppermint are famous for their soothing properties.

Peppermint and cinnamon act as mild antimicrobials that help control the population of the plaque-producing bacteria and baking soda buffers the acidity, making the oral environment less favorable for plaque-producing bacteria to multiply.

 Good-Gums uses mineral-rich French grey sea salt which allows the Good-Gums formula to pass through the gums’ membranes more readily for better absorption. 

When connective tissue cells are in the process of regenerating, what they need the most is a large amount of vitamin C.  Good-Gums provides a very healthy amount of vitamin C, plus citrus bioflavonoids that help the body utilize the vitamin C.  

The best thing about our Good-Gums formula is that it dissolves right in the mouth to be absorbed directly by the gums, where it’s needed the most.

How long will it take to see results?

What you will see relatively quickly after using Good-Gums (within the first few weeks) is that if your gums had previously been bleeding at times, they probably will have stopped.  Previous sore spots may no longer feel sore – all encouraging signs that you’re on the right path! Hurrah!

During the first one or two bottles, you are likely to notice a definite improvement in your gums.  They may feel firmer and tighter.  Often, in the six months between dental cleanings, people have seen that the deepening of their gum pockets will have stopped worsening and will have started to reverse, and they will see a significant reduction of plaque and tartar.

But that’s only the beginning! 

Our goal for you is that you will have fully restored, healthy gum tissue firmly reattached to your teeth, tight gum pockets, and no inflammation or irritation, soreness, infection, or bleeding – ever again!

And as thousands of our customers can testify – with Good-Gums it’s absolutely possible!

That’s why consistency is key! We recommend that you keep up the good work and continue with an oral care routine with Good-Gums for life, so your teeth and gums continue to benefit from our combination of effective natural ingredients.
