You would likely get in your car, drive to a home improvement store and beg for answers to your problem! If there was a proven, simple and non-toxic treatment for your foundation, would you delay solving the issue or would you get busy and fix it?
Let’s relate this illustration to your gums and jawbone. Together they are the foundation of your teeth, protecting and supporting them, so that your entire mouth and body stays healthy.

One of the first signs of gum disease is the growth of gum pockets that hide bacteria. If you have either forgone regular dental office cleanings, not kept up with a good routine of home dental hygiene or just naturally produce a lot of bacteria and plaque, gum disease is inevitable. It cannot be wished or swished away by even the strongest tasting over-the-counter rinses.
