Preventing Gum Disease with CBD


Did you know that half of the American adult population suffer from gum disease?  Gum disease is a bacterial infection involving the inflammation of soft tissue and abnormal loss of bone that surrounds the teeth and holds them in place.  This is preventable through proper oral hygiene.  

Think about the gum care products you currently have in your bathroom.  Do any of these products have CBG or CBD?  Studies have shown the inclusion of CBD in your mouth hygiene products may aid in reduced gum swelling and eliminating infection-causing bacteria.  To make matters worse, gum disease causes chronic bad breath.  People who smoke, do not floss or brush their teeth regularly are more likely to get gum disease.

So how can you prevent gum disease?  Brushing your teeth after every meal will help with the plaque that is trapped in your teeth and gums.  Scrubbing your tongue too since it harbors bacteria.  Flossing at least once a day will get the places your toothbrush can’t reach.  Swishing with a therapeutic mouthwash will also benefit your gum and teeth health.  Also, research has shown using a toothpaste product that has CBG, CBD, organic, and non-GMO ingredients will help.

Knowing your risk of gum disease will help you understand what you need to do in order to have a healthy mouth.  Age, diet, and genetics, are key factors when looking at if you are at risk for gum disease.    Smoking is also strongly associated with the onset of gum disease.  Because smoking weakens your immune system, it makes it harder for your body to fight off the infection and heal once they’ve been damaged.
