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.
So you’ve heard of gingivitis but you’re wondering what is exactly, huh? Well gingivitis is due to the long-term effects of plaque deposits, and it is often painless. It’s a scary thought that 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.
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 illness
While I knew your body changed a lot during pregnancy, I would’ve never thought of being at higher risk of gingivitis!
So here’s how The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse can help! It is clinically proven to:
- Reduce and prevent bleeding gums
- Protects against gingivitis
- Kill germs
- Reduces plaque
- Freshens breath
- Contains Aloe Vera gel as its active ingredient to help prevent bleeding gums

As I mentioned before, I was totally clueless about being at greater risk for gingivitis during pregnancy. So while I do take care of my teeth, that really did give me cause for concern. I was excited to have an opportunity to review The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Anti-Gingivitis Rinse. It didn’t burn like some mouthwashes can and it didn’t taste bad either! I’m also a fan of natural products!
The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Rinse gets this mom’s seal of approval and it is available at all several major retailers nationwide including Walgreens, Rite Aid, Whole Foods and more for about $7.49.
