Gums Receding After Orthodontics
Sawaddee ka, I've found you via Earth Clinic. I'm Thai, 32, living in KhonKaen. I'm not sure if you could read Thai. You seem very fluent in English. My English is not so good; anyway, I'll try writing you in English first just in case.
I had been on orthodontics for 2 yrs before I took out braces 3 weeks ago. I've experienced gum recession mostly on my front lower teeth for 6 months so far. Finding articles from Earth Clinic, I've been practicing oil pulling (coconut oil) for 4 days (once a day for the first two days, and morning/night on yesterday and today).
Since the second day I've noticed more gum recession on another area as I feel a little hurt below the gum recession area. However, I can't find anything wrong by just looking on my gum. I also use sea salt 3 times a day, basically rubbing on my gum line after brushing. I can still see some good results from oil pulling though; my teeth are tighter, less sensitive.
Anything wrong with my gums? Should I continue oil pulling? Any other ways to regrow my gums?
I hope you get this email. I'm pretty stressful. Thank you in advance.
