Healthy gums are indeed most important for a healthy mouth. Of course, proper oral hygiene is required, but just brushing and flossing won’t solve the problem of bleeding and swollen gums. Studies have shown that gum diseases are usually due to deficiency of vitamin C and calcium in diet. So correcting the dietary habits is most important for healing of gums.
Our diet should include all the important vitamins, especially vitamin D and C, along with minerals like calcium and phosphorus. Such a nutrient dense diet will not only prevent gum diseases, but also heal gums. I read this valuable information in a book titled “Cure tooth decay” by Ramiel Nagel. This book will give you an easy to follow diet plan which will ensure healthy teeth and gums.
