My tooth has had the gum receding for years, but it just seperated. I don't know what caused it, I think I might have done something to it because a few days ago I noticed pain in the gum area. Upon inspection I saw what appeared to be a small cut along where it used to attach, which was bleeding. I took care of it and it stopped bleeding and now looks really good, no redness. But it is a little puffy and it has clearly seperated from the tooth, leaving the top of the root exposed. The tooth and root are not hurting.
For the past year I have been brushing with soap, no glycerine. (No flouride, no SLS for 3 yrs. I have been supplementing w/ calcium for almost a year. Since the gum trouble started, I have been using the freshly made sodium ascorbate as suggested by Dr Judd, (Good Teeth Birth to Death). I am way overdue to go to the dentist, but now that htis has happened I don't want to go, I am afraid they will do something to it.
I have heard that a coQ10 spray will help the gum reattach, does anyone have any more suggestions? Sorry if this has been asked already, I couldn't find it.
