i wouldn't mess around too much and ignore dental care. go to the dentist. get the gums cared for. start with a gross debridement or gum scaling. You need to floss at minimum every other day if not more. What this does is disturb the bacteria (plaque) in your gums.. if you don't disturb the bacteria, they cause the build up of tarter/plaque and gum disease that, if left ignored, will require gum surgery. Does that sound like fun at all? I would also invest in the expensive version of a water pik, the one that lets you control the psi pressure. I purchased one on Amazon with 2 bottles of PERIOGEN, a powder that breaks down tartar. a worthy $100 investment, good for minimizing gum pockets. I also rinse my mouth out with a natural mouthwash, none of that fake sugary bullshit they sell at Target aka Scope. It's called "PerioWash". It's contains antiseptic herbs for periodontal health like clove, cinnamon, thyme, eucalyptus, oregano, goldenseal, lavender, calendula, echinacea, green tea, olive leaf, gotu kola, prickly ash bark, and ALSO CoQ10, Aloe Vera, Chlorophyll, Yucca extract, sarsparilla root, wild yam root and xylitol (which is great for gums). there are many brands at the health food store, just look for this kind of a profile...especially the oregano, clove, eucalyptus, goldenseal, and olive leaf. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, LIKE YOU HEARD YOUR WHOOOOOLE LIFFFFFFFE----FLOSS FLOSS FLOSS!! GOOD LUCK!!

Ramiel Nagel wrote a book called Cure Tooth Decay that I would highly recommend reading if you are looking for a nutritional plan to reverse tooth decay. He outlines a diet and supplement plan for preventing cavities and to cure tooth decay. As far as supplements, his recommendation is fermented cod liver oil and butter oil along with a high dose mineral product. His research includes a lot of Weston A. Price philosophies, but the nice thing about his book is that he brings it all together with 21st century practical treatment methodology.
