Using Good-Gums® All-Natural Toothpaste Powder
Good-Gums® is intended to be used in conjunction with the beneficial mechanical actions of simple but precise oral care techniques, such as proper brushing, flossing and interdental cleaning. Good-Gums® is not intended as a substitute for good mechanical techniques. It is designed to complement those techniques by simultaneously providing ingredients that are effective cleansers and that provide nutritional supplementation for supporting healthy gum function. Your mouth can get the benefits of mechanical action, cleansing, and supplementation all at the same time.
Good-Gums® comes as a dentifrice of powdered natural substances. Our proprietary combination of these ingredients is suitable for brushing, flossing, interdental brushing, manual massage and ingestion. The practices for teeth and gum care with natural substances are described in another section. (See link below.) You may not need to do them all; your circumstance should determine how many you’ll want to adopt.
It is important to avoid using toothpaste prior to using Good-Gums®. The cleansing properties of Good-Gums® can help clean your teeth and gums only when it is in contact with them. Feel with your tongue how your teeth and gums feel after brushing with Good-Gums® and then after brushing with conventional toothpaste. That thick feeling after toothpaste is a coating of residue that’s left behind. Some toothpastes even advertise the coating as if it were a virtue, sealing out heat or cold from sensitive gum tissues. (Of course, they’re also sealing out the beneficial effects of saliva.) The coating of toothpaste residue can also seal out the acid-neutralizing and cleansing ingredients of Good-Gums®, so we advise not using toothpaste either mixed in with or prior to brushing with Good-Gums®.
