Work in Sales? Keep Your Smile Healthy

I recently began working in sales. Smiling is very important when you work in sales, but I kept it to a minimum because I was not happy with my teeth. I had a tooth near the front of my mouth that was discolored from a bad cavity (my dentist says it became dark because the nerve was dead), and it embarrassed me. I always felt like it affected my income, so I finally saved up and had a crown put on that tooth. I also whitened the rest of my teeth. I now love my smile and I think it shows! I cannot stop smiling! My commissions also show my increased self-confidence, because I am making more money than ever. I created this blog to help other people struggling to make money in sales realize that a bright, healthy smile can help you and your bank account!

3 All-Natural Ways To Alleviate Gingivitis

Dentist Blog

Are you currently suffering from gingivitis? If so, giving one of these all-natural methods a try may go a long ways in helping to alleviate your symptoms. 

1. Do A Sea Salt Rinse 

Doing a sea salt rinse can be a very effective way of helping to treat gingivitis. Salt water works great at helping to reduce swelling in your gums. As an added bonus, doing these rinses is quite simple.

Just dissolve a half teaspoon of sea salt in one cup of warm water. Take a big sip of water and swish it around your mouth for approximately 30 seconds and then go ahead and spit it out. You should repeat this process several times. For best results, you should perform this sea salt rinse twice a day right after you brush your teeth. 

2. Try Tea Bags 

The tannic acid found in tea bags also works really well at helping to soothe sore and inflamed gums. First, boil a cup of water and let the tea bag steep in the water for about 5 minutes.  Once the tea bag has finished steeping, you should take it out of the water and put it on a plate.

Once the tea bag has cooled down so that it's no longer hot to the touch, hold it up to your gums for anywhere between 5 to 8 minutes. You should make sure to move the tea bag around every few minutes so that it ends up coming in contact with every part of your gums. In order to reap the most benefits from this method, you should perform this routine approximately 3 times per week. 

3. Eat More Vitamin C Foods 

Adding more vitamin C rich foods to your diet can go a long way in helping to cure your gingivitis problems. This is due to the fact that a vitamin C deficiency can lead to gum disease. Oranges, sweet potatoes, bell peppers, papayas and strawberries are all excellent sources of vitamin C. If you don't particularly care for any of those foods then you can still obtain many of the same health benefits of vitamin C by taking a daily vitamin C supplement. 

There's no doubt about it that gingivitis can be really unpleasant to have to deal with. Luckily though, trying even just one or two of these tips should make a big difference in helping to restore your gums back to optimal health again.
