How to Keep Your Teeth for the Rest of your Life
These tips enable a person to efficiently and inexpensively improve the condition of their own gums. This system reduces redness, swelling and bleeding of the gums and minimizes the need for surgery, improving all but the worst areas in the mouth.

The Story of Dental Disease
The presence or absence of gum disease is a reflection of an individual’s ability to withstand the negative influences of improper oral hygiene, poor nutrition and the consumption or use of things toxic to the teeth. A genetic deficiency may be part of the equation but one’s brushing and flossing have a far greater influence.
The word “sulcus” means a furrow, and is the space between the tooth and the tissue that extends all the way around each tooth. The purpose of the sulcus is to connect the gums to the teeth in a way that stops disease-causing bacteria from entering the teeth and body through the gums (source). The tissue of the sulcus contains a high number of white blood cells which are the cells of the immune system that protect the body from infectious disease.
In healthy gums, the depth of the sulcus is less than 1 mm. If the pockets exceed 1 mm it tells you and the hygienist that bacteria are getting the upper hand, entering the sulcus, attaching to the tooth and tissue forming a biofilm, a hard layer of protection around the bacterial colony.
It takes only 24 hours for the bacterial deposit to form into colonies and in seven to ten days the colony structure is such that it can support a variety of anaerobic bacteria.
“The Secret” is a way to halt the accumulation of microorganisms that so negatively affect the teeth and surrounding tissue thus preventing the colony build up and the eventual accumulation of their byproducts (waste or excrement) which are so toxic or poisonous to the body. The natural reaction of the body is to separate itself from these poisons through the inflammatory process (a natural immune system response of the body), which results in bleeding, swelling and redness of your gums. This is your body’s way of trying to heal itself. However, if the bleeding, swelling and redness cannot be cleared up after a reasonable amount of time, the bone around the teeth is affected. That’s why teeth are eventually lost, starting with even minor gum problems.
The body needs some help to repair the situation. To do this requires more than just brushing your teeth. You must change the acidity level in the sulcus and also stimulate the gum tissue to increase the flow of blood, which brings nutrition and oxygen to that area. Stimulating the gum area also removes waste from the tissue.
Doing “The Secret” works best when preceded by a thorough professional dental cleaning which removes hardened plaque (tartar or calculus) from your teeth. If a prior cleaning is not possible, it is still beneficial to follow this program, but results may vary and may take longer to achieve.
There are three main instruments (along with some options if your budget allows) to be used as part of your home remedy. All three instruments are to be used as therapeutic as well as maintenance tools. Plus a “healthy gum recipe,” which is The SECRET that makes it all work. The SECRET is the combined use of all or part of all these that create health – the signs and symptoms are gone.
