receding gums grow back


Receding gums can be cured: how to fix receding gums? do gums grow back? how to regrow gums? I will answer all that plus share with you the remedy my mother used in her treatment (no surgery needed) to fight her gum line disease and regenerate them.


My mother came one day from her dentist, which told her she suffered from an “incurable disease” called gingivitis, meaning that her gums were getting smaller and smaller, bleeding easily. Her teeth were going to start falling one by one the smaller her gum line became. Her dentist tried certain expensive injections but they did not improve my mother’s condition at all.

After that, the first teeth fell and I was very sad of seeing her beautiful smile taken away so I started researching in medical magazines and multiple science articles. I wanted to see if there was any chance for the gum recession to stop, as I found it strange how some dentists claim gums do not grow but they do recommend expensive treatments. So I gathered online stories of people that tried different remedies. I read some that stated that it cannot be made to grow, while others said it can.

One day I stumbled upon a medical research showing the benefits of Hyaluronic acid in the regrowth of tissue, with its anti-inflammatory and healing proprieties. It made sense as it is a well known beauty ingredient with anti-aging benefits, especially in face creams. Then I wondered if there was a product that contained it that could be used for gums.

The solution was the gel from, which is usually known for healing babies gums when their tiny teeth come though. On further research, I noticed the brand has versions for babies and for adults! I bought the adult version for my mother and she tried it for a month, following the routine below.

So her dentist was wrong all along or she was unwilling to disclose a relatively cheap remedy for gums instead of her expensive injections just to make more money from her patients! With the remedy I discovered for receding gums, she was able to partially regrow them. Let me tell you below the simple steps she took, and that you can easily follow too.


First of all, in your fight to stop your gums from receding even further, you have to go to the dentist to make sure you do not have any infections. This is the first step before starting my method. After making sure you are infection-free, you can start this routine. I will show you what products my mother used and where to purchase the originals:

  1. Buy a soft toothbrush that will not hurt your gums. I recommend the one from, it has one of the softest bristles and will not hurt your gums
  2. Buy the toothpaste from Do not use other toothpastes, as some can contain harsh chemicals stopping your gums growth. Brush your teeth gently morning and night, daily
  3. Buy the gel from This is the most important step, as this gel is the one having special ingredients that enabled her gums to grow back partially. Gently apply it on your gums after your teeth are brushed
  4. Buy teeth floss from Do not purchase other brands and I have not tested those and cannot tell you if they are gentle enough. Floss carefully once two days, very gently.
  5. After using teeth floss, rinse with the mouthwash from

While you do this routine, go again to your dentist and ask if it is ok to have your plaque cleaned. If all is ok, proceed to have your plaque buildup removed by your dentist. Also make sure to treat your cavities too or other problems.


After purchasing all these, you have to follow the treatment above. The more closely you follow it, the quicker you will see results. My article comes as an answer to the question of how to fix receding gums, wanting to my share my mother’s success story. But be aware that results do not come in a day, gums heal slowly so improvement can be usually seen in a month. This treatment can be followed for months, but it is very rewarding to see them grow.

However, it was not just my mother that had seen results with it, also other family and relatives tried and saw their gum line grow back partially. As you can see from the positive Amazon reviews of the gel, it really made a difference to many people from all over the world too.


The answer to the question: do gums grow back? is that yes, they can do that. But they need treatment. Following my method will highly increase the chances that your gum line will stop getting smaller. It also helps with tooth sensitivity and bleeding. The gum line gets stronger and stronger each day.

How much they can grow and how fast depends on the current state of your gums. In some cases they regrow back totally but in some severe ones they partially regrow. In rare cases, depending on your general health and because of other health problems, the gums might not grow at all.

For the majority, it works and any progress is amazingly beneficial, as it stops this disease from spreading. It also gets the teeth stronger. I am saying that because the gum supports the teeth partially so any growth of it means more stable teeth. Fighting this gum disease without surgery is improving many lives, for some it avoids dentures in the future.

In the illustration below, I tried to depict how my mother’s teeth and gums were before the treatment (left side). Her gums were red and inflamed, they were bleeding easily, they were sensitive to touch. Her teeth had plaque and a yellow tone. Because her gums were shrinking, the teeth were less stable. During the routine I described above, I noticed her gum line stopped receding, it got less swollen, less red and her teeth were less yellow, as shown in the middle illustration. She told me that her teeth were feeling stronger and less sensitive. In the illustration from the right side, after months of treatment, I wanted to replicate how her gums were pink again and less prone to easily bleeding.

The receding of gums can have one or more cause. Below I will list the most common and important ones:

  • bacterial gum infections that destroy the gum tissue and the surrounding bone (this is why it is so important to follow the cleaning routine, as food that remains between teeth can be an environment for bacteria to breed)
  • aggressive brushing or aggressive flossing that hurts the gums
  • allowing tartar to build up too much (it pushes the gums as it takes more and more place on our teeth, so it is a good idea going to the dentist to have it removed periodically and also following my cleaning routine to make it build up slower)
  • genetics can make some people more prone to gum sensitivity and disease
  • smoking

  1. I had a black margin on one of my crowns where it met my gum. After a week of using the gel this black margin has definitely decreased in depth. Seems good to me.

  2. Awesome advice, I love that your mother tried it herself and you can advise us from experience, unlike other blogs where they just gathered a bunch of random tips from the Internet.

  3. Wow, never knew this remedy, I am going to buy all your recommended products and try them! I will be back with my review
