2. Brush properly after every meal to remove food particles. (For more information on proper brushing techniques, see Oral Hygiene, Brushing, in Part Three.)

3. Consider using an electric toothbrush, which is effective in stimulating and cleaning gums.

4. Have your teeth cleaned and checked regularly by a dental hygienist, dentist, or Periodontist.

5. To soothe and heal inflamed, bleeding gums, rinse your mouth with a solution of warm water mixed with a tablespoon of aloe vera gel, or apply aloe vera gel directly to the affected area. (See Using Herbs, Application Preparation, in Part Three.)

6. Use goldenseal in a toothpaste preparation to help heal inflamed, diseased gums. (See Using Herbs, Application Preparation, in Part Three.)

7. Vitamin C is important for healthy gums. Take the recommended adult requirement of 500 milligrams daily.

8. For gums that have receded, use balsa-wood wedge toothpicks to clean between the gums and teeth. (For further information on these special toothpicks, see Oral Hygiene in Part Three.) Do not use regular toothpicks, which may damage delicate gum tissue and wear down the sides of the teeth causing "toothpick abrasion."
