Receeding gums

I have been diagnosed with receeding gums and bone loss and told that I have to undergo gum reconstruction surgery. I would like to avoid this. Is there a way using homeopathy?

1. Severe receding gums. Teeth roots exposed. Some sensitivity. Dentist did X-ray and said that bones have deteriorated. But not much movement of teeth or decay.
2. No other sufferings
3. Worry and sorrow as this has come because of my neglecting my teeth
4. That my teeth will all fall off and I will have to have dentures and look like an old woman.
5. About 12 years ago. But I ignored it. I had severe depression at that time and was on anti depressants. I have had depression off and on. Now I am alright and not on anti depressants. I only recently visited my dentist after a gap of 10 years and was shocked to know how bad my gums were.
6. Generally I am calm day and night but with this diagnosis, I am kind of worried throughout the day and wake up at night worrying.
7. I don’t have any suffering due to this condition now except some sensitivity in the teeth. This sensitivity was worse a few years back and seems much better now
8. It is probably related to the fact that I never drink much water, sleep with my mouth open as due to protruding teeth, I cannot close my mouth properly and also snore and have taken anti depressants for prolonged periods.
9. Weather generally does not bother me.
10.I used to be insecure with low self esteem, ill tempered and weepy. But now I am more confident, calm and composed.
I am not bothered by thunderstorms at all.
I like to be consoled by people close to me but sometimes like to be left on my own.
I am not particularly sensitive to stimuli.
I don’t have any particular gestures etc.
I get along fine with my parents and siblings. I get along reasonably well with two of my three children but I have issues with my other child. I do not get along well with my husband. I have a few friends I am comfortable with but do also like to be with myself
I am a school teacher and I enjoy my job very much
I have not had any bereavement so far
I am now 54 years old. My father used to give me a hard time when I was young. He was strict and harsh.
There are some incidents that I would like to forget
I like music of the soul stirring kind and I enjoy listening.
The fact that I wasted 30 years of my life being married to the wrong kind of man is what I am very angry with myself about. I am not much affected these days by what others do except if they expect something from me. I want people to leave me alone without expecting anything from me.
11. My fears are for my children being unhappy and I don’t have any repeated dreams
12. I crave for Indian spicy food especially pickles, tamarind based foods and ghee.
13. Thirst is less when I am in the Uk but when I go to India it is normal.
14. Hunger is normal
15 I am a complete vegetarian, do not eat eggs. I can’t drink too much milk but apart from that there is no food that my body can’t stand
16. Sweat is normal and in the trunk.
17. Bowel movement is normal.
18. Sleep is normal. There is no particular position
20 No unusual sensations
21. I take Athenelol 25 mg for blood pressure and Atorvastatin 10 mg for triglycerides. In the past I have taken several different anti depressants. I have stopped when I felt better and the depression returned and I had to take it again. Now I am not taking any anti depressants
22. Blood pressure, high cholesterol and parkinson’s disease.
23. My weight in medium
24 Whooping cough,(childhood), depression ( started 15 years ago and then off and on), urinary infection (2014)
25 Periods have stopped. Menopause for the past 3 years. When I had periods, they were very regular and I had no problems at all. I have not taken any birth control pills.

Please take MERC SOL 200C once a week for some weeks. Let me know after a month.

Thanks for the reply. Would like to know how to take the medication. Is it in liquid form or globules?
chitraravi 7 years ago
Take liquid doses.

One dose would be 3 drops in some 10 ml water sipped up slowly in clean mouth and empty stomach. No food or water or rinsing the mouth for the next one hour.

This is a slow pace disease so the cure will also be slow. Keep taking a sustained dose once every week for a month. Let me know if there is any change after a month. Based on your feedback we will adjust the dosage and potency.

I consulted a peridontist and he checked my gums and said that they are healthy although they have receded and the only thing that I have to do is to keep them clean. I do not have gum disease. The receding has been caused by over brushing and he is going to teach me the right techniques to brush. For the moment, I am going to keep them clean, eat nutritious food and then assess the situation after a few months. Thanks very much for your advice.
