Does your gum tissue feel sore, tender and sensitive? Does it feel like a nagging nuisance every time your gums flare up? Do you feel frustrated with each repeated recurrence?
Sore and swollen gums are a common occurrence. It’s your body’s first line of defense, bringing immune system cells to fight the invading bacteria in an attempt to stop the infection from spreading to the cells that support your teeth.
Don’t worry! Good-Gums is here to help!
The ingredients in Good-Gums are specifically designed to support your body’s ability to heal itself naturally. After using Good-Gums for just a couple weeks or less, look for a quick improvement with significantly less soreness and swelling. Then let your own experience remind you that you have something to fall back on if ever your gums become sore or swollen in the future.

What does it mean to have sore and swollen gums?
Sore or swollen gums are an indication of a bacterial infection in the gums. When bacteria invade the cells of gum tissue, the immune system is able to recognize the pathogenic bacteria as being foreign (i.e., nonhuman), and triggers an immune response to eliminate the invaders. The swelling and soreness are symptoms of the immune response.
As soon as the first human cells are killed by the invading bacterial cells, the immune system is activated. Increased numbers of white blood cells of various kinds are produced in the bone marrow and deposited into the bloodstream for movement to where needed; blood vessels in the area of the infection dilate to bring more blood with their immune system cells to the site of the infection. Capillaries in the area become more permeable, so that immune cells can move from the blood vessels to the tissue under attack. Some immune cells (antibodies) mark the invaders, so that other immune cells (phagocytes) can find the invaders and eliminate them by eating them or encapsulating them. Immune cells with their load of detritus then move to one of the lymph nodes for cleaning. This immune response of a localized infection is known as acute inflammation. Swollen, sore and sensitive gums are symptoms of acute inflammation at work at the infection site.
When the immune system successfully destroys the invading bacteria in the gums, the debris from dead bacteria and dead human cells are removed from the area and new healthy human gum cells take their place, restoring health to the gums. This attack on invading pathogens and the subsequent restoration of healthy tissue is referred to as immune homeostasis, the body’s system of maintaining a balance of health. That’s the goal you want when you have sore and swollen gums.
The alternative to immune homeostasis is a continuing infection that leads to the tissue-destroying condition of periodontal disease. When the invading pathogens are not eliminated, but instead gain a foothold despite the inflammatory response, the immune system adopts an additional tactic of isolating the damage being caused by the invading pathogenic bacteria. Immune cells “amputate” infected cells in an effort to slow the infection’s progress. This can go on for months or even years, and is known as chronic inflammation. In the gums, that leads to the destruction of tooth-supporting tissues, such as periodontal ligaments, jawbone cells, cementum (on the tooth’s root) and gum tissue cells. Unless stopped, this progression will lead to loss of teeth. Besides the repercussions on oral health, chronic infection of the gums also compromises the ability of the immune system to fight diseases throughout the body. You want to avoid even starting down that road.

How our combination of SCIENTIFICALLY BACKED ingredients help:
Good-Gums is specifically formulated for gums with clinically proven ingredients of the highest purity anD potency. It works with your body’s natural processes, whose predisposition is to heal and nurture. Good-Gums takes advantage of two facts about your gums: their cells have some of the fastest replacement rates in your body, and they are comprised almost entirely of connective tissue. In most of the body a cell lives for an average of 7 to 10 years before being replaced, while a new gum cell is replaced after only 7 to 14 days. Healthier gum cells can start replacing less-healthy cells quickly, if they are given what they need. What new gum cells need is what all connective tissue cells absolutely rely on for their formation: a large amount of vitamin C. Good-Gums is unique in providing a healthy amount of vitamin C, plus citrus bioflavonoids that help the body utilize the vitamin C. Check the labels: other products (whether pastes. balms or essential oils) just don’t provide it. The Good-Gums formula dissolves right in the mouth to be absorbed directly by the gums, where it’s needed the most.
The Good-Gums formula also contains a lot of alkaline baking soda to buffer the acidity of its vitamin C, thereby protecting your enamel from acid erosion. To keep the alkaline baking soda from reacting with the acidic vitamin C in the bottle, the entire formula is kept in a dry powder state. When the powder meets saliva in your mouth, it becomes a liquid solution that starts getting absorbed by the gums immediately before these two ingredients (alkaline and acidic) could react or could weaken the vitamin C.
Good-Gums is absorbed more easily by the inclusion of French grey sea salt in our formula, which has a mineral balance similar to human-produced fluids (so much so, that it was successfully used in place of blood for transfusions to some wounded sailors in WW-II, when blood wasn’t available). This matching mineral composition avoids an ion imbalance that would otherwise stop absorption through cell membranes. Since more of the Good-Gums solution can be absorbed, it can do its work quicker and better.
Besides supporting the growth of healthier new gum cells, Good-Gums also has herbal ingredients that soothe sore gums. Myrrh and peppermint are famous for their soothing properties. Cinnamon is a potent anti-inflammatory. And salt solutions are so soothing as to be the standard recommendation by dentists after oral surgery. All are carefully-selected ingredients of Good-Gums.
To help control the population of the plaque-producing bacteria, peppermint, myrrh, and cinnamon act as natural antimicrobials. Baking soda, besides buffering the acidity of vitamin C, also makes the oral environment less favorable for the proliferation of acid-loving, plaque-producing bacteria.
To help remove plaque from constant contact with the gum margins (where they can re-infect the gums), Good-Gums employs the extraordinary property of cranberry, which significantly loosens the grip of plaque bacteria on the nanoscale, so that
it the plaque bacteria can more easily be removed by the mechanical action of toothbrush bristles and floss.
Your gums can improve by the combination of these three strategies: by our unique active nutritional support for the formation of healthier new gum cells, by soothing sore tissue while your gums are recuperating, and by reducing the excessive numbers of and contact by infectious agents.

Ways to use Good-Gums for sore and swollen gums:
When you’re faced with sore or swollen gums, the immediate aim is two-fold: support your body’s natural ability to mend itself and remove infectious agents so they can’t further infect the gums again. A number of practices for effectively removing infectious agents are described further below, and they are important.
But in addition, there are a couple of other practices that are quite effective for supporting the body’s mending of swollen and sore gums. One is a very simple practice of massaging dissolved Good-Gums into the gums at the sore and swollen site. Take a pinch of Good-Gums in the mouth, where it will dissolve quickly into a liquid solution; swirl the solution over the sore spot. Then, using a clean finger, massage the sore spot; the stimulation will draw additional blood into the area, and the massaging will help the gums to absorb more of the solution.
Here’s how using Good-Gums can help remove infectious agents:
APPLYING GOOD-GUMS WITH A TOOTHBRUSH
Our recommended way of applying Good-Gums with a toothbrush loosens plaque and brushes away loosened debris, disrupting plaque that has formed on the outside and inside flat sides of the teeth. But our method also massages the gums at the same time, helping them absorb the herb-and-vitamin formula that supports healthy gum function. Detailed instructions on how to apply Good-Gums come with your shipment
A tooth brush is an essential tool for breaking up plaque on the front (outer) surfaces and also the back (inner) surfaces of teeth. But Good-Gums uses a slightly different technique than brushing with toothpaste. That’s because toothpaste relies on the abrasives in it to grind away plaque, which is somewhat effective at reducing plaque, but which also grinds away molecules from the surface of tooth enamel. But toothpastes fail to provide any direct support to the growth of healthy new gum cells. Good-Gums does support the growth of healthy new gum cells (through its buffered vitamin C), and it’s also effective at removing plaque, but not by any abrasives. Instead Good-gums employs an herbal ingredient that relaxes bacteria’s adhesive grip, so that the toothbrush can more easily remove the plaque.
The Good-Gums technique is to dissolve some Good-gums powder in saliva to form a liquid solution, and then to angle the brush 45-degrees, to slide some of the bristles into the crevice between the gums and the root of a tooth, and then to wiggle the brush head in tiny circles so that the bristles in the crevice move to and fro. This massages the gums for better absorption.
Toothbrushes intended for use with abrasive-laden toothpaste are relatively hard, even when they’re labeled “medium” or “soft; but with Good-Gums we use an “extra-soft” toothbrush. Instead of using a toothbrush to grind abrasive paste into where plaque forms, a toothbrush is used to massage a dissolved solution of Good-Gums into the plaque and into the gums as well; then the brush sweeps away the loosened debris. Electric toothbrushes can be used with Good-Gums; they almost always come with extra soft bristles.
Flossing with Good-Gums (if done properly) is a good way to remove plaque from between the teeth, where a toothbrush can’t reach, while also transferring dissolved Good-Gums below the gum line. Proceed very slowly and gently for the first few days, as your gums may be sore and sensitive, or even bleed. Day by day your gums will get a little more resilient. Put a small pinch of Good-Gums in your mouth and swirl it to the first section (e.g., upper left) that you’ll floss. Move the floss between two teeth (do not snap into place). Then position the floss as deeply as you can into the gum line, pull it tightly around one side of the tooth, and scrape from the root toward the crown. Do not use an in-and-out sawing motion. Floss all the way under the gum line, and the dissolved Good-Gums solution will be moved under there as well. Then halfway-wrap the floss around the side of the other tooth and scrape its plaque loose. Remove the floss and move it to the next split between teeth to floss the sides of those two teeth. When one section is done, take another small pinch of Good-Gums and repeat the process.
A way to remove even more plaque is with an interproximal brush (sometimes called an interdental brush or proxabrush). It’s a small plastic or wire rod with little bristles spiraling around one end of the rod. Put a small pinch of Good-Gums in your mouth, where it will dissolve, swish it to a section of teeth and move the interproximal brush in and out between teeth, using the spiraled bristles to massage the dissolved Good-Gums into the gums.
Soaking the gums around a troubled spot
A good way to use Good-Gums is to let it sink into the tissues, folds, and crevices of a troubled spot for a longer time than the exposure from the above steps.
Soaking the sites of the bleeding with dissolved Good-Gums for a couple minutes is a way to get accelerated results. Put a small pinch of Good-Gums powder in your mouth and let the dissolved solution soak into the tissues and crevices for a longer exposure than the steps above. Gum tissues absorb quite readily, so let the Good-Gums stay there for a few minutes, then discharge.
Oral irrigation is an additional step you can take to control plaque and thereby prevent the formation of tartar. Some common brands of oral irrigators are Hydrofloss, Waterpik and Viajet. These help get to small bits of plaque that are left behind by the above processes.

How to tell that Good-Gums is working:
Good-Gums doesn’t force a suppression of symptoms or compel a “cure.” Instead, Good-Gums supports the body’s ability to heal itself, with a boost of herbs and vitamin support found in nature. As the health of your gums improves, you’ll notice both the swelling and the soreness in your gums subside to the point of ending entirely. You may also notice your gums getting firmer. Other measurements of gum health, such as reduced bleeding, reduced plaque and calculus, and smaller gum pockets can often be observed, and are good signs of improvement.
How long until you can see results:
Sore and swollen gum tissue usually involves the infection of cells that have not yet been destroyed, but are still-existing and still-viable. Restoring these cells to health can be much quicker than growing new cells to fill in where previous cells have died off and now no longer exist (as in periodontitis). Often a couple of weeks of diligent oral care at home is enough to start seeing results. Some users have reported improvements even faster, in a week or even less.
Thank goodness for Good Gums!!
