Can baking soda cure gum disease?

No, baking soda cannot 'cure' gum disease (periodontal disease). Currently, there is no universal cure for gum disease. Gum disease can usually be effectively 'controlled' with proper care and treatment, but once periodontal disease has been diagnosed, the signs and symptoms can return at any time. Periodontal disease is differentiated from simple gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) by the loss of periodontal attachment, that is the destruction of the tissue surrounding the teeth that attach the tooth to the jaw. A dentist or dental hygienist can examine your teeth and gums and tell you if you have periodontal disease or gingivitis. Baking soda can be incorporated into the treatment of gum disease, but has never been demonstrated to be effective in the control of gum disease by itself. The first step in controlling gum disease is determining the cause of the disease and the extent of the condition. The most common cause of gum disease is long-term poor oral hygiene and lack of professional care in a dental office. If caught early, gum disease can usually be controlled with improved oral hygiene and non-surgical treatment in a dental office. If the disease is advanced or severe, sometimes surgery is necessary to get the condition under control. Other factors that impact gum disease include smoking, worn out dental fillings or crowns, systemic conditions such as diabetes, a family history of gum disease (genetic predisposition), some medications, and inadequate nutrition. The best course of action is to see a qualified dentist and follow his/her advice.
