He was a M.D. internal medicine, orthomolecular doctor, M.D. psychiatrist, chiropractor, and healer 65 years. He started treating heroin addicts in the 1930s and continued to treat them into the 1990s.
Dr. Bob said the main reason for missing teeth and gum problems for heroin addicts is poor nutrition and a lack of vitamin C. The skin and gums are made mainly from collagen in the body.

To regenerate the gums Dr. Bob advised to brush your gums with cayenne powder. I have used cayenne powder to brush my teeth and gums and I can tell it works immediately in improving the gums. It increases circulation to the gums and this is why it is so effective.
WARNING: If your teeth need cleaning, then do not use cayenne powder until you have seen a dentist for a cleaning. Cayenne powder can be so effective and work so rapidly that new gum will often grow immediately, covering the dirty teeth and leaving dirt underneath the newly formed gum. Therefore heroin addicts need their teeth cleaned by a dentist before brushing with cayenne powder.
Just add about 30-50 mg of cayenne powder to your regular toothpaste. You should get results after the first brushing. Dr. Bob said cayenne powder will also stop most tooth pain and other gum and teeth problems.
Also brush the back half of the tongue. The tongue is filled with germs, which get on the teeth and gums, so when you brush your teeth also brush the back half of the tongue.
Additionally Dr. Bob recommended gargling using vitamin C and E. He said take 1 capsule each and pour the powder into 8 ounces of distilled water and gargle. This helps heal collagen and is useful in fighting bacteria in the mouth. This is a good treatment for chronic sore throats.
In conclusion, like many other problems heroin addicts experience, teeth and gum problems are the result of poor nutrition and not from the repeated use of heroin. Teeth and gum problems can be helped by supplementation of vitamin C and an excellent multivitamin and mineral, and brushing your teeth mixing in a little cayenne powder.
