FAQs: REJUV™ for gums
How is REJUV™ for gums different from a mouthwash or rinse?

REJUV™ for gums is unique in that it’s a therapeutic oil and not a water-based solution. Being an herbalized oil REJUV is able to moisturize the mouth and help with dry mouth conditions, bind the volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) that give rise to bad breath, and its herbs help nourish and revitalize gum tissue.

I am having trouble removing the tamper-evident seal. How do I remove it?

For your safety, each bottle of REJUV™ for gums is closed with a  tamper-evident seal. Even though the seal has perforations running from top to bottom, it is not always easy to see these or to open the seal.

An easy way to remove the seal is simply to unscrew the cap complete with the tamper-evident seal. (Make sure to keep the bottle upright so liquid does not spill.) Then cut or tear tamper evident seal from bottom where visible below cap and completely remove transparent seal material.

Replace cap on bottle and you are ready to use REJUV™ for gums.

What causes loose teeth?

Having loose teeth is obviously a sign that something is wrong - teeth are not supposed to move.

The problem could be with the gums, the bone supporting the teeth or the fibrous attachment between bone and teeth. Consult with your dentist about your specific problem.

Regardless of the cause, these teeth must be treated to prevent further problems. If not, the continued movement can accelerate the damage to the supporting bone. If your gums are swollen and bleed easily, you could have an early form of gum disease such as pyorrhea. As it worsens you might lose some teeth. So if you want to keep your teeth, you must take care of your gums - gum disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss and 75 percent of Americans over 35 have some form of gum disease!

Gum problems and gum disease are often the result of plaque buildup. Plaque consists of harmful bacteria which, if not removed, build up on the teeth and ultimately irritate the gums and cause bleeding. Left unchecked, bone and connective tissue are destroyed, and teeth often become loose and may have to be removed.

So preventing plaque buildup (good toothbrushing and flossing) and conditioning the gums, helps maintain good oral health and keeps teeth and gums strong. Some of the ingredients in REJUV have been used traditionally for tightening the teeth. Astringent herbs like eaglewood and ficus bengalensis contained in REJUV™ - are said to be particularly effective.

We believe that REJUV™ is the most powerful formula available for strengthening gums and helping tighten loose teeth.

“For decades my gums were ‘iffy’. In fact so bad that I had lost 2 teeth. Then I came across Dr. Tung’s REJUV™ for gums. A recent dental visit shows my gums in excellent condition.”

What are the ingredients in REJUV™ for gums?

REJUV™ for gums is not a combination of essential oils. Its preparation is an exacting and specialized technology from Ayurveda, the ancient Indian Science of Health, whereby more than 20 complete herbs are processed – and not simply extracts or essential oils.

Using the whole part plant or herb provides an efficacious, nourishing, and balanced medicinal oil with all the traditional healing properties of the herbs themselves, such as: astringent herbs to enhance cellular secretions, sweet and tonic herbs to nourish and strengthen the tissues. The oil acts as a carrier for the rejuvenating or strengthening effect of the herbs and is absorbed by oral tissue. REJUV™ for gums contains no alcohol, sugars or artificial preservatives.

INGREDIENTS:  Sesame oil (organic), acacia nilotica*, ficus religiosa*, wild Himalayan cherry*, cardamom extract (organic), banyan tree, acacia catechu*, lodh tree*, Indian madder*, eagle wood*, Indian gall-nut*, Indian gooseberry, gmelina arborea*, long-leaved pine*, spikenard*, stone flowers, sandalwood*, woodfordia fruticosa*, deodar*, licorice*, clove*, lotus seed, lemongrass, turmeric, nutgrass, nutmeg, cinnamon, camphor.   * Wild Harvested

How do I use REJUV™ for gums?

REJUV™ for gums is easy to use and comes in a glass bottle with a Euro dropper. Any of the following methods may be used:

1. Place a few drops on Dr. Tung’s gumbrush and brush gums gently for 30–45 seconds. This allows oil to be absorbed by the gum tissue and has the added benefit of stimulating circulation.

2. Swish 8-10 drops in mouth for 30–45 seconds.

3. Use a clean finger (or cover finger with disposable protector) and massage gums gently with a few drops of oil.

Use 3-5x a day for best results.

Should I use it more than twice a day?

For best results use 3 or 4 times daily after eating and before bed. People who use it overnight report that they have less dry mouth and less "morning breath". Using it after eating not only helps remove sugars and food debris but also gives the therapeutic properties of the oil more time to work.

Will it help with conditions like receding or bleeding gums?

Many people have called or written to us about their good results using REJUV™ for gums to improve receding gums and bleeding gums. This formulation with 20 remarkable herbs has excellent conditioning and revitalizing effects, and offers great therapeutic possibilities for those with gum problems. It is perhaps one of the most powerful rejuvenating formulas available for gums.

You may also want to minimize factors that may contribute to receding gums, including nutritional considerations and gum trauma from “overbrushing”. The effects of prescription medications, which often cause dryness and other oral problems, must also be considered.

In addition, the bite (occlusion) is very important, and if there is improper occlusion i.e. the teeth of the upper and lower jaws do not align and contact correctly, this can add stress to certain teeth and adversely affect the gums in those areas.

How do I use the Eezi-Squeeze dropper?

The Eezi-Squeeze dropper makes dispensing very accurate and precise! 

Hold the bottle in your palm and use two fingers of the
same holding hand to press and release the middle of
the blue dropper. Turn bottle to face downwards when
dispensing.  You'll find that you can easily dispense as
little as a single drop at a time by squeezing and releasing!
