5 Effective Home Remedies for Gum Disease

10161 ratings | 610090 views
Gum disease, also known as gingivitis, is a common condition characterized by symptoms like persistent bad breath, red or swollen gums, bleeding gums, receding gums and loose teeth. If not treated, it can advance to periodontitis and lead to further complications. The primary cause of gum disease is poor oral hygiene, resulting in plaque buildup along and under the gum line. Plaque builds up when bacteria attach to the tooth and gum margins. Factors like smoking, hormonal changes, genetic predisposition, poor nutrition, stress, certain medications, diabetes and other illnesses also contribute to the problem. Here are a few effective home remedies that can be used to alleviate symptoms, treat gum disease and prevent further complications. 1. Hydrogen Peroxide Hydrogen peroxide works as a strong antibacterial agent that kills germs and fights gum disease. Plus, it helps whiten and brighten your pearly whites. Make sure you use the 3 percent hydrogen peroxide solution that typically comes in brown bottles, rather than the highly concentrated version. Mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water. Rinse your mouth with the solution for a few seconds, and then spit it out. Use it a few times a week until you are satisfied with the results. Do not use hydrogen peroxide too often; once a day is sufficient. 2. Aloe Vera Due to its anti-inflammatory and healing properties, aloe vera has been found to be beneficial in dealing with gum disease. Being an antimicrobial, it also kills the bacteria that cause gum disease. Massage your gums with fresh aloe vera gel, leave it on for at least half an hour and then rinse it off. Repeat several times a day. Alternatively, swish some aloe vera juice around in your mouth a few times. 3. Oil Pulling Oil pulling is a traditional Ayurvedic technique that is excellent for oral care. It helps strengthen the teeth and gums, reduces plaque, and relieves bad breath. Swish one tablespoon of coconut oil around in your mouth and through your teeth. Do this for about 15 minutes or until it becomes thinner and turns milky. Do not gargle or swallow the oil. Spit it out and rinse your mouth with water. Repeat the process daily for about a month. 4. Tea Tree Oil The anti-inflammatory properties of tea tree oil help soothe irritated and inflamed gums. Simply put a few drops of tea tree oil on your toothpaste or buy toothpaste with tea tree oil in it for brushing your teeth two times a day. Do not swallow the oil. 5. Coconut Oil The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of coconut oil help in the natural treatment of gum disease. Combining it with baking soda will help neutralize the acids in your mouth, too. Mix two tablespoons each of coconut oil and baking soda. Use this in place of your toothpaste once or twice a week on a regular basis. In addition to these remedies, make sure to maintain adequate oral hygiene, including daily brushing, flossing and using a mouth rinse to reduce plaque buildup on your teeth. Plus, get regular dental check-ups.

Sage has an antibiotic in it ,its also better in taste and smell than hydrogen peroxide ! Be careful people ..just boil a glass of water and add two crushed Ts of sage leaves and soak it till 10 to 15 minutes max ,then add generous sprinkle of sea salt to it ,one Ts of red apple cider vinegar.. use it as the method of oil pulling ...

does anyone know if using clear retainers make my swollen gums worse since it presses on it 24/7 ?
Flynn Riyadh (2 months ago)
jesseny aviles that's what happened to me 😣 I have never had problems with my gums before and keep up on oral hygiene. After my braces were removed and I started using my retainer daily I experienced inflammation and pain on my gumline. I've also noticed slight receding and it's spread from back near my molars all the way to my canines.

I have had gingivitis for almost 10 years and I sometimes feel helpless because I don’t know what to do about it. I’ve been to the dentist many times over the years and I’ve been told to brush twice a day and use mouthwash- it’s something that everyone does anyways. Due to the gum disease, I have not been able to get braces. I am very insecure and self conscious because of it and I really hope that these remedies help me because I have tried everything that I’ve been advised by ‘professionals’ and nothing worked out so far.

Violet Snowflakes omg same thing with me. Periodontist has stopped me from getting braces and having a not so great smile lowered my self esteem for pretty much all my life. I got 2 deep cleanings and STILL I went to a third dentist and they said i still have the gum disease that the other dentist didn’t do their jobs right. I don’t know what else to do because they charge an arm and a leg for any type of dental treatment. Plus I feel like I’m getting the run around. I feel as if I’m never going to get braces

I HATE going to the damn dentist.  The bright white lights in my eyes,  them sticking their fingers in my mouth, and that damn suction straw drive me insane!!!  I'm like, "Hell with it, I'd rather just go with eating my food with gums!!"

Find another dentist, with no bright light in your eyes. My dentist has windows in every room and even offers sunglasses to wear during the cleaning!

This video drives me nuts. Im a dental hygienist and there’s a ton a could say.. treat gingivitis before it turns into perio. Professional treatment is the ONLY way to halt periodontal disease. It will not just go away with home remedies.
Ej Stone (2 months ago)
I totally agree with you. I am dealing with this issue right now. I have always taken care of my teeth and have done (continue to even now) all the holistic/alternative ways...my periodontal disease has progressed to cracks and pieces of my teeth at the gum line breaking off. I DO NOT trust dentists any more than I trust doctors (nurse for over 30 years) BUT with gum disease SEE A DENTIST.

Is aloe vera good on gums?
Alter Ego (9 months ago)
These remedies are not cures, they just provide temporary relief. Moreover, the acids from fruit juices, esp lemon juice, can eat away the enamel. Gingivitis must be treated from the inside. Cut out sugar, bread, pastas and other refined flour products and eat plenty of vegetables. The results will be slow and steady and gingivitis will be reversed if you follow this diet strictly.

Is THAT Completely REALISTIC For ONE To DO In THIS DAY And TIME With So MANY JUNKY TEMPTATIONS Though, Alter Ego??

I noticed that my gum health/plaque is non existent when I don't eat bread, crackers, cookies etc. I noticed that there was more residue on my floss. I think these things are gummy/sticky causing more bacteria. Glad you mentioned it here .

Best treatment for bleeding gums and swollen gums is take a cup of lukewarm water put a bit of salt and Turmeric as much as you feel ok doing with and swish it around your mouth and try to keep it in mouth for as long as you can keep and than spit just see the effect after some time keep on doing it in morning and before bedtime and when your problem reduces than do it once every day.

I don't have a natural remedy for bleeding gums but I'm sure you've all seen the paradontax toothpaste ads,the effective ingredient being stannous fluoride, well the same is in some crest toothpastes.I was using crest and it helped with my bleeding gums in a week. Try it and see what it can do for you.

Two dentists told me oil pulling is a total waste of time , does nothing
Thomas Favre (5 months ago)
Isn't oil naturally anti-bacterian? So swishing oil around for a long period cannot be bad. The thing is you have to be careful not to swallow, which is maybe why dentists do not recommend it, compared to toothpaste. I don't know, I'm just guessing.
Black Sabbath (10 months ago)
At least look into Dr. Katz's products...much better toothpaste and wash....stopped my gum pain and bleeding.
Black Sabbath (10 months ago)
Doc is lying man. He want you coming back. Oil pulling is an ancient practice that's effective.
claudette dalton (10 months ago)
theyve told u that because they want u to pay them...........oil pulling does work........it did for me and im 54
Doxastic (1 year ago)
That doesn't make a lot of sense, it's antibacterial and it's prolonged swishing, which would help even if it was water. Maybe swishing with water is just as effective and maybe just using some listerine or flouride rinse for a minute is more effective, but saying it 'does nothing' is kind of stupid. Anyway, the science on it isn't clear one way or the other - it might be worthwhile and might not be. More research is needed before anyone can claim one way or the other. Dentists and doctors aren't scientists, you should treat anything they say with extreme skepticism.

Gum disease, also called gingivitis, is a type of condition characterized by symptoms such as persistent smelly breath, red-colored or swollen gums, bleeding gums, receding gums and loose teeth. If not treated, it can advance to periodontitis and lead to further complications.

Thank for replying. I am 68 years old and I just found out that my gums are giving me problem.
Evie Maddox (1 year ago)
I'm not sure what you consider "old" but I'm 45 and started having problems almost a decade ago. My mom doesn't have a single tooth left, so I'm trying to avoid that. I've used tons of natural remedies, switching them out regularly, and I didn't stop having dental problems until I started using home remedies and stopped using toothpaste. I make my own paste, mouthwash, etc. Since the problems in the mouth stem from bacteria, you can use the same strategies no matter what the age. The only question, I think, is how bad can the situation be before it can't be restored; and the answer to that won't be known until it is tried and failed.

Not a good idea. Vinegar may kill germs but it is highly acidic and will erode your teeth's enamel. It's not appropriate for an oral rinse if you want to keep your teeth.

É visto en algunos video clips que hacen cirugia en el problema de perdida de encia. Én otros tratamiento en casa con diferentes opciones. El problema és que uno se queda sin saber cual és lo más efectivo. En mi caso; mi problema és hereditário. visito el dentista una vez al año ya que mantengo una buena higiene bocal y no hay razon para visitar lo cada 6 meses. mi dentista me dijo que no tiene solucion ninguno producto excepto cirugia . És muy confuso, veo que recomiendan produc. alternativos .
