If you are experiencing “pink in the sink” when you spit out your toothpaste, or blood on your dental floss, take heed. People mistakenly think this is a sign that they are brushing hard/well or flossing efficiently, but bleeding gums is actually a symptom of gingivitis, and it is a warning sign that your gums need serious attention.
You can take dental hygienist training and learn what it takes to maintain oral health.
Dentists estimate that 80% of us develop gum disease in our lifetimes, ranging from mild gingivitis to severe periodontitis. If left untreated, however, gum disease may progress to other oral health issues, including tooth loss (it’s the #1 reason for adult tooth loss!). Other studies and experts, including Dr. Oz, have also linked gum disease to heart disease, stroke, breast cancer and respiratory diseases, such as COPD.
While it can happen to anyone, the following raise the risk for developing gingivitis:
§ Poor dental hygiene
§ Pregnancy/puberty/menopause (hormonal changes increase the sensitivity of the gums)
§ Uncontrolled diabetes
§ Genetics/family history (30% of general population susceptible to gum disease)
§ General illnessGingivitis is due to the long-term effects of plaque deposits, and it is often painless, so bleeding gums may be your only symptom until it has progressed further along (other symptoms are swollen/tender gums, receding gums, and/or persistent bad breath). Luckily, one of the early warning signs of the gum inflammation IS the bleeding you see when you brush or floss, so it is your body’s way of telling you something’s not right. If you have a family history of this issue or notice bleeding when you brush or floss, you should schedule a dental visit to evaluate your condition, as well as take steps at home by adding The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Anti-Gingivitis Rinse to your oral care regimen.

My 15 yr old daughter was the first to try it. She says that you can taste the aloe in it. Next to try it was my 26 yr old daughter. She commented on how the peppermint taste stays with you. (I see this as a good thing as far as keeping your breath fresh). My daughter's husband tried it. He thought it didn't taste bad at all. He hasn't ever tried a mouthwash that didn't have alcohol in it. He didn't think he would like it, but he did.
I was the last to try it. I wasn't sure what to expect taste wise. It's for sure not the usual mouthwash taste. Actually, I think this is a good thing. To me, it doesn't have that anti-septic taste that I just do not like in mouthwashes.
For me it's the ideal product. All other pertinent information is listed above.
