Gingivitis, bleeding gums, moderate teeth bone loss

Hi I am a 26 year old male and have been taking homeopathy for almost all my life.
For the pas year or so, I am having some problems with my teeth. I had three different dentists evaluate my teeth but the results were similar. They say I have a moderate level of bone loss from my teeth which is irreversible. My gums feel sensitive too. There are days when they become sensitive and then they become fine again for many days. But the dentist says you cannot 'feel' about bone loss. I also have occasional gum bleeding.
I do not have any other diseases.
Please advise what homeopathic medicine I should take and how. Homeopathy has always worked for me.

Thanks for the reply, Dr. Tamhankar. I hate to ask, but could you please tell me how you are deducing these two medications for me? I mean there are many other homeopathy remedies possible, but why are you choosing these two in particular without seeking other information?
bissi 8 years ago
Different people on this site have different ways of applying our medicines.

It sounds like you know something of how homoeopathy is practiced. I can take your case in a more traditional manner if you like.

To Evocationer:

Yes please!
Let me know what information you need.
bissi 8 years ago

In homoeopathy, prescription is based on precise details of various symptoms from which you suffer. To tell or write to a homoeopathic physician 'I have a headache ', ' an eruption ' or “a cough” would not be enough. If you inform him 'I have headache with sharp shooting pains in the left side of the head and temple, these pains always come on when the slightest cold air strikes the head. I feel better by pressing the head very hard.” Then only you have given all the information required for making a good homoeopathic prescription. The success of the prescription depends; largely on how detailed your description of the symptoms is.
We require the following details about your symptoms.

LOCATION: Please give the exact location of sensation, pain or eruption. Also describe where the pain or sensation spreads.

SENSATION: Express the type of sensation or the pain that you get in your own words however simple or funny it may seem. You may have a sensation that a mouse is crawling or the heart was grasped by an iron hand or you may have a pain that is cutting, burning jerking, pressing. Express the sensation or pain as it feels to you. Try to explain the whole sensation in the exact way it is happening and not just the word. We need to understand the whole process of the sensation as it is happening to you.


Many factors are likely to influence your complaint. Some factors may intensify it and some factors may relieve the trouble. A detailed list of the factors is given at the end. Please refer it while describing each of your troubles and indicate which factors make the complaint better or worse.

DISCHARGES: You may have a discharge from nose, ears, mouth, eyes, ulcers, fistula, eruptions on skin, private parts, etc. Please describe your discharge in detail including colour, consistency, appearance, odour etc.

1] Your Complaint:

(Use your own words as far as possible, but if you have recognized or diagnosed the condition, give this information also.) By answering as many of these questions as fully as possible, you are helping me to understand what your body and unconscious mind is conveying. This can help me find a remedy for you.)
• What is your complaint?
• When did the complaint begin?
• Where is it located?
• What sort of sensations (and emotions) do you associate with it?

• Does anything make it better or worse?
• How does it bother you? How is it coming in way of your day-to-day life?
• How does it feel like to have this/these problem/s?
• What is the effect of this/these problem/s on you?
• Did any event happen which caused the complaint? Describe the emotion associated with it.
• What are the other symptoms started with it, esp. mental and physical symptoms, which are not directly related to the main complaint.

You are welcome to take any advice given on this forum, although it is important to choose one practitioner and follow them. I only gave this option since you appeared to be asking for a particular kind of prescribing that I do. No disrespect is meant to Mr.Tamhankar.
Evocationer 8 years ago
Here are the replies:

All gums feel sensitive. Molars all four sides have pain on some days. The pain in molars is not severe, and not frequent. It comes for some days then it goes away. gum bleeding is more often from the front teeth (but again this is not everyday).

When the toothbrush rubs aginst the gums hard, the gums bleed. The teeth feel slightly loose, as though not very firmly fixed in the jaw. Also the gums feel slightly swollen and reddish. The sensation in the gums is such that there are scratches or not smooth, or not well stuck to the teeth.

As I said the pain in the molars is not frquent. It comes on some days, then stays for few days then goes and doesn't come back for many weeks. I think it is aggravated by eating harder meats, or chewing meats. It becomes better when I start using a tooth powder to massage my teeth. One time gargling with salt water helped as well. Good massaging or applying pressure on the gums helps a lot.

Discharges: I don't have any from nose/mouth. At least none for the past many weeks.

Complaint: My gums feel sensitive and weak. My teeth, particularly the molars hurt when I eat hearder meats. I have had problems with bleeding gums as well, although about 7-8 years ago this bleeding gums was particularly frequent. Now it happens when something like a brush rubs them hard. Or when I chew something hard. The dentist says I have periodontal disease with mild-moderate irreversible bone loss and need root planing. He says my teeth have pockets and will fall eventually if I do not get these treatments.

Emotions: I feel stress about this and a pain in my heart whenever I think about this too much. I understand stress is also related directly with teeth health. Deep breathing helps me control stress. No specific event happened with my teeth, but I did not use to floss until the age of 24-25 (so I started only about one year ago). I feel very desparate to find a CURE to it , and not a treatment for the symptoms- which is why I go to homeopathy. As homeopathy has helped me for all my medical problems till date.

I assume you will be answering the other questions as well?
Evocationer 8 years ago
Mental and Emotional State (answered with key as in your questions):
1. Love bothers me, as my loved ones are far from me. I am in a long distance relationship, and my family is also far from me. It worries me when I will see both of them next. This causes stress.
2. It makes me mentally violent when I see people not working, or being lazy for themselves. People not trying to improve their own condition.
3. My father and mother never had good relations, and I was always close to my mother.
4. Afraid of heights. Afraid of losing my loved ones. I never take merry-go-rounds.
5. I read a lot. I draw, I like music. I like maths.
6. Perfectionism is what I strongly believe in, and mediocrity is worthless.
7. No
8. Strong feelings. Urges which want me to shake the person up to rise and work to improve yourself. I find it really hard to stand mediocrity. I also feel very worried when some health issue comes up with me, and I do not know the solution. I always try to find a solution to the problem and not a way to cope with the symptoms.
9. When I achieved good things. Admission to great universities. Personal academic success. Success at winning anything.
10. .... continuing...
bissi 8 years ago
10. Not really. I just like to dig deep into any problem and make a mountain of a molehill until I am convinced I know everything about it.
11. My family is in another country. My fiance is in yet another country. This strreeses me as I do not know when we meet next!
12. intelligent, focused, independent, determined. They become negative with overtones of selfishness as I want everything for myself.
13. Anger, impatience. It becomes positive as I try to get things done sooner. Sorry I couldn't think of 5.
14. Yes. Usually of anxiety. Something is about to happen. Like I maybe trapped, or someone is looking for me. Usually dreams in which a way-out needs to be found and are 'thrilling' but in a negative sense. Recently a dream was of being trapped in North Korea.
The other type of dreams are of frustration with my dad, in which I always want to hit him or provoke him to hit me so I can hit back.
15. As far as I remember the dreams of anxiety and running towards/away from something have always been with me. The dreams concerning my dad are more prevalent since last 7-8 years when I no longer lived with him, and he no longer with my mom.
16. I was very confident and bold. A sort of a rebel. Always working to be the best at everything, and not trying if I couldn't be. Fears were of people not recognizing me, or of laughing at me.
18. Problems with family already mentioned.
bissi 8 years ago
On the belly or on the side. 95% of the time I sleep on the belly with one right hand upwards and tilted, and right knee bent. Hard to sleep on back, but of late I am trying as I have read it is healthy. Sometimes I can't sleep but usually these days am so busy and tired that I immediately fall asleep. Arsenic Album helped twice to sleep well when I had stress.

2. I love soft meats, and seafood. I love natural juices, milk, chocolates, and citrus fruits. I dislike squash family vegetables. More or less I love food very much. I avoid fast food and canned foods. A good meal which fills me has a positive influence.

Hunger makes me stressed sometimes, but it is rare as usually I eat frequently

4. No. Sometimes when I eat too much meat, but then I change my diet and its back to normal. Yellow/brown cylindrical.

5. No trouble. Light yellow or transparent. I drink a lot of water if I see dark yellow urine.

6. I sit in AC pretty much all day, and only sweat when I am out.

7. No problems.

8. Not applicable

9. I like temperate climates. 20-25C is ideal. I like rains as well. Strong sunlight makes me tired and restless and stressed.

Last of the continued posts:

Although you have not asked but I mention here that I have taken homeopathic medicines since I was born so it is not possible to give a complete list here.
I am using Cineria Maritama eyedrops. Some years back I had nosebleed issues (I had them since a kid almost everyday) which were cured forever with a dose of less than one week by our family homeopath. 3 years back I had a lot of hair loss, that was also cured by homeopathy forever. I don't remember the names of these though.

Thanks so much for your help. I hope you can find me a good fit.

The other words to describe my gums I was looking for but was failing was spongy.
Also there is inflammation on them.
bissi 8 years ago
Can you talk more about the following things:


Mentally Violent

Love bothers me



Great universities

Want everything for myself
Evocationer 8 years ago

Mediocrity: Of late I have become a strong believer of working hard to achieve something. I have started disliking people who put in half hearted attempts in any task, and when they fail say this is fate. I strive for perfection not mediocrity.
Mentally violent:
Something like a pain in my heart comes when I see my loved ones struggling, because they didn't act for their results at the right time. I have become sort of the person who wants everything done as I want- and this is because I have more or less always achieved success in the methods I tried on my own.

Want everything for myself/Success/Winning: I like many things, and want to be the best at them all. Like the best in my work, in my study etc. I need deep recognition for my work. Sometimes this makes me very selfish, but now I am trying to get contentment by sometimes accepting things as they are as well.

Love bothers me: My fiance is far from me and it bothers me that she is far as I can only see her on videos. I wait for the day when I'll see her again, and I want that she makes efforts to come to me (for logistical reasons I cannot go to her). It bothers me when I don't see her working on this everytime- and sometimes it causes stress as well.

Great universities: I simply mean that I did my studies at great universities and am very happy that I did so.
bissi 8 years ago
What exactly do you mean by the word 'mediocrity'? What word would you use to describe yourself?

Why do you use the word 'violent'? What do you mean by violent?

How do you see yourself compared to all other people?

Does it matter what kind of university you went to?
Evocationer 8 years ago
By mediocrity I mean 'average', or 'common'. I would describe myself as hard-working.

I think anger and impatience are bad qualities and violent is the word which comes to my mind.

I do not know how I see myself compared to other people. It depends on the person..

It matters to me if a person is well educated or not, not necessarily a 'good' or not so good university.
bissi 8 years ago
Dr. Evocationer:

Just checking if you got to see this..
bissi 8 years ago
just making sure this doesn't get lost. I understand you maybe busy in other cases as well.
bissi 8 years ago
It's actually my face-to-face clinic that tends to draw my attention away. I obviously need to focus on that first, and I try to do cases here outside of that.

I will work on this today and see what comes up.

Have you taken homoeopathy before? If so what medicines and what results?
Evocationer 8 years ago
No problem, I appreciate you getting back to me. Please get back to me when you get a chance. I just didn't want that my post gets lost.

As to your question, as I mentioned in a post above:

'I have taken homeopathic medicines since I was born so it is not possible to give a complete list here. We had a very talented family homeopath. Usually the medicines were for common colds, coughs etc.

Some years back I had nosebleed issues (I had them since a kid almost everyday) which were cured forever with a dose of less than one week by our family homeopath. 3 years back I had a lot of hair loss, that was also cured by homeopathy forever. I don't remember the names of these though.'
bissi 8 years ago
Alright I understand that you couldn't know all the remedies, I was just wondering if you knew what you were given more recently.

Just as a matter of interest, these problems with your gums, teeth etc. - when did those occur compared to when your hair loss problem disappeared?
