Vitamin C keeps my gums from bleeding. It is necessary for tissue repair. 1000-3000mg a day.
Flossing increases the blood flow so much to my mouth that I have to do it in the morning. My gums throb - so if I did it at night it would keep me from sleeping.
Anaerobic bacteria (hiding between teeth) are the ones that cause the problems after dental procedures (esp. heart related). Flossing and using mouth wash are a good way to keep them out of your system (notice to all non-secretors!)
It is so pleasant to explore nature & oneself at the same time, doing violence neither to her nor to one's own spirit, but bringing both into balance in gentle, mutual interaction.
