believe that the worst thing about gum disease is the
possibility of losing their teeth. However, gum
disease can result in far worse problems, such as heart

* Vitamin C - Helps to prevent tooth decay and promotes healthy gums. Like virtually all vitamins and minerals, the best form is what comes in whole foods, especially citrus fruits, but natural vitamin C is hard to find in supplemental form.
* Calcium - Your teeth are made mostly of calcium, so you need a good supply of this mineral. 1500 mg per day would be a good amount. Note: Most people get plenty of calcium from dairy products and fortified foods. Supplemental calcium gluconate or calcium citrate are both easily absorbed.
l * Magnesium - This mineral works with calcium to build strong teeth. Magnesium also helps to prevent tooth decay and promotes recovery from gum disease. You should take 500 mg daily.

Another thing to
consider is making yourself a herbal mouth wash/rinse.
The herbs goldenseal, myrrh, and calendula have been
used for centuries to improve dental health. Purchase
each herb separately in tincture form, then combine 30
drops of each in a small brown bottle. Store the
tincture in a cool, dark place away from children.
