Reverse Gum Disease Program Without Surgery

If you've been struggling with gum issues and have been told that surgery is your only option, we have some exciting news for you. There is an alternative approach to treating gum disease that doesn't involve costly and invasive surgical procedures or painful recovery periods. Dr. Raymond Hatland's amazingly effective, nonsurgical reverse gum disease program can shrink diseased gum pockets of 5 to 12 mm by 2 to 5 mm. When this happens the gum disease has been cured in these pockets, and the bacteria that were in the pockets are essentially eradicated. The gum pockets“shrink” because the gum tissue at the very base of the pocket is now reattached to the tooth. My patients are shown how to maintain this high state of being disease-free.

The Traditional Approach to Treating Gum Disease with Surgery

The traditional approach to treating gum disease often involves very costly and invasive surgical procedures. When patients are diagnosed with gum disease, their first thought may be that they need to go under the knife. Surgery for gum disease typically involves cutting and removing infected tissue, many times followed by grafting healthy tissue onto the affected areas.

While surgery can effectively remove diseased tissue, it also comes with risks such as pain, bleeding, and a long recovery period. Moreover, surgery only addresses the symptoms of gum disease without addressing its underlying causes. It fails to take into account that oral health is influenced by various factors, including effective oral hygiene with the right tools, diet, stress levels, and overall systemic health.

However, this is not necessary. From a holistic dentistry perspective, there is a more comprehensive approach to treating gum disease. Holistic dentists focus on finding and addressing the root cause of the problem rather than simply treating symptoms. Instead of resorting to surgery right away, holistic dentists recommend non-invasive treatments such as deep cleaning (scaling and root planeing), introduce patients to effective tools such as oral irrigators, effective non-traumatic toothbrushing technique, and supplement programs to support the gum tissue metabolism and the immune system. Laser therapy, ozone therapy, or herbal mouthwashes can also be helpful. These methods aim to eliminate bacteria and promote healing naturally.

In addition to these treatments for active gum disease cases, they emphasize preventive measures such as proper oral hygiene practices (brushing twice daily, flossing), consuming a balanced diet low in sugars and refined carbohydrates but rich in vitamins and minerals which support immune system function, and managing stress through techniques like meditation or yoga.

By taking this holistic approach towards treating gum disease, you can improve your oral health while ensuring overall wellness, too! 

Holistic Dentistry and Its Approach to Treating Gum Disease

Holistic dentistry takes a unique approach to treating gum disease, focusing on the interconnectedness of oral health with overall well-being. Unlike traditional methods that often rely on invasive surgeries, holistic dentists aim to address the root causes of gum disease while promoting natural healing and preventive measures. 

  • One key aspect of holistic dentistry is understanding that gum disease is not solely caused by bacteria but can also be influenced by factors such as diet, stress levels, and immune system function. By addressing these underlying issues, holistic dentists work towards restoring balance in the body and supporting optimal oral health. 
  • Another important component of holistic gum disease treatment is the use of natural therapies and remedies to help reduce inflammation and promote healing without harsh chemicals or side effects. 
  • In addition to targeted treatments for existing gum disease, holistic dentists prioritize patient education and empowerment. They provide guidance on proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing techniques that effectively clean teeth and gums without causing further damage. They also emphasize the importance of a nutrient-rich diet for supporting healthy gums and overall wellness. 
  • It’s important to realize that many people have gum disease - even advanced gum disease - and have no idea that they have any gun disease for years or even decades. It’s a very subtle and stealthy disease. It rarely hurts! This is why having professionals really look to see how your gum pockets are by measuring them is the only reliable way can you be sure you have no gum disease.

Holistic dentistry offers a comprehensive approach to treating gum disease that goes beyond just tackling symptoms. By addressing underlying imbalances in the body through natural therapies and empowering patients with knowledge, this alternative method aims to restore oral health while promoting overall well-being. Dr. Hatland’s Reverse Gum Disease Program can overcome many metabolic conditions, such as diabetes and poor Health, when applied daily.

Tips For Maintaining Healthy Gums and Preventing Future Issues

Proper oral hygiene plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy gums and preventing gum disease. Here are some essential tips to keep your gums in excellent shape: 

Brush regularly: Brush your teeth daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush with or without toothpaste with a proper technique that doesn’t wear down your gums. Be sure to be covering all surfaces and most important the crevices between your teeth and gums. Scrubbing harder many times does more damage to the gums and/or root surfaces and does a poor job of cleaning the crevices where decay and gum disease start. How long you brush your teeth is not as important as how well you brush your teeth.

Floss daily: Flossing can be effective in preventing or stopping early-stage gum disease! It helps remove plaque and food particles between your teeth where the toothbrush can't reach. However, for more advanced levels of gum disease, one needs to learn how to use an oral irrigator that can flush particles and bacteria out of much deeper pockets. That is why many people should get a periodontal charting of their pocket depths long before any symptoms show up to see if Dental Flossing can actually do the job.

Rinse with mouthwash: Use an antibacterial mouthwash after brushing and flossing to kill any bacteria that may cause gum disease.

Maintain a balanced diet: Choose foods rich in vitamins C and D, as well as calcium, which contribute to strong teeth and healthy gums. Avoid sugary snacks that can promote bacterial growth.

Quit smoking: Smoking weakens the immune system, making it harder for your body to fight off infections like gum disease. 

Schedule regular dental checkups: Visit Dr. Raymond Hatland regularly for professional cleanings and examinations to detect any signs of gum disease early on.

Exercise stress management techniques: Stress can weaken your immune system, making you more susceptible to infections such as gum disease; try incorporating relaxation exercises or activities into your routine. 

Remember—prevention is key when it comes to maintaining healthy gums! By following these simple tips consistently, you can significantly reduce the risk of developing gum disease or experiencing future issues with your oral health.
