Ways to Fight Gum Diseases

Research has found that more that 75% of Americans have gum diseases. One of them is Gingivitis- a disease caused by bacteria that lead to inflammation of the gums.

If gingivitis is left unattended it can leads to periodontitis which is more severe. This can make the inner layer of the gum to pull away from the teeth.

This article presents some natural ways to heal from such gum diseases. This way, you can keep gum health on your own not forgetting that you need to go and see the dentist a few times in a year to ensure you are on the right track. Now, check out the natural ways to help you fight receding gums.

1. Baking soda

One should use a toothpaste with baking soda since it enhances removal of plaque in teeth. You can also use baking soda directly along the gum line.

2. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera gel improves periodontal condition. Depth in gums, swelling pain and bleeding gums can be healed by Aloe Vera. Just try applying organic aloe Vera to the gums on a weekly basis and everything would be fine.

3. Tea tree oil

It is a natural antiseptic against thrush and oral infections. Rubbing a few drops on your gums prevents gum inflammation and other gum diseases.

4. Clove oil

It is applied to the gums directly during dental work or when one has a toothache. It reduces pain during the process but it should be used in moderation since more of it can cause damage to tooth pulp, skin and mucous membrane.

5. Turmeric

It is great for fighting inflammation and other infections. It is a perfect therapy for gum disease. Turmeric can be added to your diet or directly to your gum and teeth. Applying twice daily will minimize cases of gingivitis and periodontitis.

6. Coconut oil

Dental hygiene is very important to everyone. It helps maintain the general health of the whole body. The remedies given above and other medical ones should be taken seriously and incorporated to daily lifestyle if you are to keep an eye on your dental hygiene.
