These 3 Fruits Can Fix Most of Your Gum and Teeth Issues

Do you suffer or know someone who suffers from receding gums? When the gums are receded, the tooth's root gets exposed and, besides causing the patient a lot of pain because of sensitivity, it can also compromise the esthetic of your smile. 

Gum recession is a slow process but, if the patient notices any kind of alteration in the tissues and immediately seeks a dentist, the case can be reversed without any harm to the body.


According to Ayurveda, teeth are a by-product of bones, and Neem (Dongoyaro) and Licorice (Banga stick) stems can be chewed on or used as toothbrushes.


Did you know that? Besides this trivia, tooth cavities and receding gums can indicate a deficiency of calcium, magnesium, and zinc. 

If you suffer from one of these issues and want to avoid them, chew a handful of black Sesame (Beniseed), rich in calcium, every morning. Then, brush your teeth without using toothpaste to rub the remains of the seeds on your teeth, polishing and cleaning them. 

Black Sesame (Beniseed)

To avoid receding gums, teeth infections and cavities, you can choose between massaging your gums daily with sesame oil or using triphala powder mixed with sesame oil. But, do you know why triphala is good? Triphala is a combination of three fruits (Harada, Amla, and Behada) that has been used for thousands of years by the Ayurvedic phytotherapy. It helps clean and tonify the digestive system, and, thanks to the active ingredients derived from the three fruits, triphala has antioxidants that can help with receding gums, while sesame oil nourishes the bone tissues.

If you choose this mixture, fill your mouth with sesame oil and triphala and swish it around your mouth for 2 to 3 minutes, then spit. After that, gently massage your gums using your finger.


Other than that, correctly chewing your food stimulates the gums and helps keep them healthy. According to studies, it is believed that eating 4 figs a day can also strengthen teeth and gums.

Try any of these recipes and please do share your experience with others.


Note: Triphala powder can be gotten from big shopping malls in Nigeria.
