Healing Gum Disease

Hello, I am Kristin Killops of Quantum Techniques.

If you’ve been told you have gum inflammation, gingivitis or periodontal disease, or perhaps when you’re at your dental exam, when the dentist is checking for what’s called “pocket depths” around the teeth, instead of healthy one or two numbers, you’re getting fours, fives or sixes. I have a really effective and simple technique, or treatment for you to do.

You take a Waterpik, and fill it 50/50; half warm water and half mouthwash. Then, you turn it on, and you take the wand, and you’re going to point it up into the gum line, that little juncture between the teeth and the gums. You’ll just follow the gum line around each tooth, pointing the flow of liquid up into that little crease. Then, you’ll go to the inside of the teeth and do the same on the upper, and then you’ll turn it down so the little tip is facing down, and you’ll go along the gum line of each of the lower teeth, outside and inside.

Do this at least once a day, perhaps at the end of the day, or if you are around home, you can do it after every meal, and the inflammation will subside, and the infection will heal. The numbers will go down to healthy numbers again for those pocket depths, and the redness and tenderness will be gone, and a multitude of eventual problems will be prevented. Pretty simple, pretty effective, and right there at your fingertips. Thanks!

  1. What kind of mouthwash do you use??

    • Thanks for your question, Ruth. I have used Tom’s mouthwash. I’m surprised by this, but Crest also tests ok for the gums for me; it is not my first choice but will do in a pinch. If you have one you’re wondering about, feel free to email me and I’ll be glad to test it for you. Blessings, Kristin

  2. Hi Kristin. would you test me for Toms mouthwash? Also I have been told by my dentist that I may need my wisdom teeth out – Im 52, not in any pain but its crowded in there and difficult to keep clean, is this a good enough reason to have them removed? seems a bit drastic to me!



    • Hi Rachel. Thank you for your questions. The Tom’s mouthwash tests fine for you. As for the wisdom teeth removal, it is not cut and dried as it depends on the degree of of crowding, how your teeth are being affected, etc. I’m sorry, but I cannot advise on that!

      • Hi Kristin. Thank you so much for your prompt reply, I am ordering the mouth wash and waterpik today!

        • Hi Rachel. Good for you! You will love how deeply clean your mouth feels after using the water pic. Please let me know how it goes. Blessings and health, Kristin

  3. Thanks Kristin for sharing the technique. Inflammation will arise no matter which method you use. The diet may cause dental problems sometimes or poor dental hygiene. People use many home remedies to prevent dental problems. I don’t think many people have a Waterpik in their house.

    • You are absolutely correct that diet is often involved in oral health; poor dental hygiene as well. However if someone has gum inflammation from whatever source, this technique addresses it. This technique is part of good hygiene.
      Thank you for you question.

  4. Excellent post! Cleaning the gums this way will definitely help heal gingivitis, as can regular oral hygiene habits.
