5 Effective Home Remedies for Gum Disease

5 Effective Home Remedies for Gum Disease


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. If you like the video, give it a thumbs†up

  2. I love after giving this natural treatments they send you to a dentist that knows nothing about actually helping your teeth/…thanks for the information though….

  3. It should ways be said to spit coconut oil into the garbage not the sink which it will clog and block in cooler areas.

  4. 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

  5. Thank.you ! The coco oil helped almost immediatly ,but i gave my gum a long massage with the oil and then i washed it with warm water . After 5 minutes i.could feel relieve . Nice advice and i am subscribed .

  6. 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.

  7. She's wrong about hydrogen peroxide. Use food grade and dilute to 3%. The drug store stuff is filled with toxins just like everything else in the drugstore.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Dilute hydrogen peroxide up to 20% of the amount that u r going to gargle with.. the full glass of water needs only the fifth of it to be hydrogen peroxide

  11. 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.

  12. 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!!"

  13. 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.

  14. So my dumbass scratched a part of my gums with my nail and now it has a line on it. Anyone knows how to fix this it hurts

  15. I have very good dental hygiene but I got extreme bleeding gums from an antidepressant and extreme dry mouth and after stopping taking it, the gum disease is still there its driving me crazy

  16. Dentist didn't day shit about any of this to me. Actually told me peroxide wouldn't help with anything but whitening. I feel betrayed.

  17. This is bullshit so i have to keep doing this to stop my gums receding everyday this is depressing

  18. I found good help with a teaspoon of Cinnamon ( it is hard to resolve) in a hot drink One in morning and, one at night Was of relief

  19. The 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide is the best, and is the best for your body. It doesn't contain any stabilizers that are toxic to the human beings. "NOTE" It MUST be diluted, 11 parts water 1 part 35% food grade Hydrogen peroxide. You can even swallow it if you want, after its diluted. No Poisonous chemicals added.

  20. Does my seizure medication contribute to the deterioration of my gums/enamel? Yes I have smoked but I am in the process of quitting and have had 2 deep cleanings this past year. I do not want to lose my teeth just bc of my stupidity of smoking!

  22. I had my gums improved in a few ways after struggling with periodontal disease for over 10 years. Had 7-9mm pockets for most of my teeth. NO cavities though…

    1. Went to the dentist for deep cleaning. It was necessary for me despite people mentioning it adds bacteria to your blood stream. This really cleans teeth and under the gums as I had deep pockets under the gums filled with plaque and tartar.
    2. Went to the doctor and got 2 antibiotics. Zmax and Rocephine. Accidentally discovered this 2 anti biotics helped with my gums when i was very sick with fever cough and flu. My gums which used to bleed at the slightest touch, totally stopped bleeding after a few days. I WAS SUPER SHOCKED. Helps to kill some bacteria i supposed? I was surprised this antibiotics which was for my fever and flu helped with my gum disease where dentists have failed to helped me with amoxicillin and such.
    3. Did organic powder wheatgrass swishing twice a day. 1/4 teaspoon wheatgrass to enough water to swish in your mouth for about 2-5 mins. Morning and night. Brand I used was Amazing Grass.
    4. Made by own mouthwash. 1 heaping Table spoon Himalayan pink salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 10 drops clove oil, 10 drops peppermint oil. Add and mix to 1 litre of water. Use whenever you feel your mouth is getting dirty. Its so cheap to do as well. The key to gums recovery is your mouth need to be clean for more than 12 hours daily. ALWAYS gargle like crazy after food or drink. I use this once every 2-3 hours if I am at home.
    5. Bought an oral irrigator. Go to Aliexpress and search for YAS Faucet Oral Irrigator jet toothbrush. About 20 USD. Used after brushing. Free flow water. Use as much as I want. Connected mine in shower area.
    6. Used Auromere, Ayurvedic Herbal Toothpaste, Foam-Free, Cardamom-Fennel Flavor, 4.16 oz (117 g). Bought on Iherb. NO SLS, 100% natural. Use code FEZ635 for discounts. most natural toothpaste i ever used.
    7. Do not eat any food that's above 70 degress celcius. Dont cook your gums. As a guide, If your skin cant handle the temperature, probably your gums cant. Eat war/hot food. But not piping hot and near boiling temperatures.

    I hope these tips will help those in need. It has helped me with my long long history of periodontal disease. God bless you all. Happy trying.

  23. Worthless home remedies 😡😡. just visit your dentist or periodontist for the gum treatment as soon as you feel the gum problem, otherwise you may lose your teeth and get more health problems

  24. Lol I found out I had gum disease by my dentist and all he was saying was how I got it. I was just thinking, maybe tell me how to TrEaT iT? He didn't, so now I'm here. 😂

  25. 2 years ago I had bleeding gums which was told by a dentist that I was heading toward gum disease if I didn’t change my habits. About 2-3 weeks ago, my gums around 1 tooth had receded.
    .
    I invested in a water flosser (the one I use is called “Waterpik Countertop water flosser” it’s loud af but gets the job done). You can find this at your local Walmart or target for about 50$. I’ve been using it since then & it is honestly the best investment to PREVENT your gingivitis/perdontitis to get any worse. The water flosser is designed to help especially with gum disease & I believe it’s more efficient than flossing with the thread.
    .
    Gum recession is irreversible. You can’t grow it back after it has been damaged by bacteria unless you get dental surgery at a hefty price. To be completely honest, no “natural remedy” is going to solve your gum disease. You will hear it over & over but brushing TWICE a day, FLOSSING (cannot stress the importance enough), & using antiseptic mouthwash every morning and night is more effective than rubbing freaking tea tree oil or hydrogen peroxide on your already damaged gums.
    .
    I’ve been using the water flosser & mouthwash night & day & i no longer have bleeding or swollen gums. The tooth experiencing gum recession did not necessarily “grow back” but it has healed & is no longer red.
    .
    I know how insecure this makes everyone feel, it freakin sucks. But hope this helps anyone who is experiencing this issue.

    3. Did organic powder wheatgrass swishing twice a day. 1/4 teaspoon wheatgrass to enough water to swish in your mouth for about 2-5 mins. Once in morning and night. Brand I use is Amazing Grass. Chlorophyll helps with recovery.

    4. Made by own mouthwash. 1 heaping Table spoon Himalayan pink salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 10 drops clove oil, 15 drops peppermint oil. Add and mix to 1 litre of distilled or filtered water. Use whenever you feel your mouth is getting dirty. It’s so cheap to do as well. The key to gums recovery is your mouth need to be clean for more than 12 hours daily. ALWAYS gargle like crazy after food or drink. I use this once every 2-3 hours if I am at home.

    7. Do not eat any food that's above 70 degrees Celsius or 158 degrees Fahrenheit. Don’t cook your gums. As a guide, if your skin can’t handle the temperature, probably your gums can’t. Eat warm/hot food. But not piping hot and near boiling temperatures.

    8. Eat 1 orange a day to ensure you have your daily recommended dose of Vitamin C. 2 oranges to speed things up a little. If you are lazy to eat oranges, this is a wonderful alternative NutriBiotic, Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C Crystaline Powder. Bought on iHerb again. It isn’t sour like Ascorbic Acid. You could also megadose on Vitamin C with this supplement but make sure your stomach can handle it as it is known to cause diarrhoea. Read up on mega dosing on Vitamin C before trying. Vitamin C supposedly heals your body tremendously and helps with your gums.

    I hope these tips will help those in need. It has helped me with my long long history of periodontal disease. God bless you all. Happy trying.

  27. i saw this thing that salt water helps it might sting or burn the slightest bit but it SAVES YOUR GOD DAM MOUTH you should try it 🙂

    The remedie
    1.teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water mix around for 30 seconds then spit out and dont swallow do this for 2 to 3 times a day 🙂

  28. Im 16 and for years, i've neglected brushing my teeth. Every once in a while id brush and such. Not even when i had braces did i brush. My gums were so puffy it was scary, then i didnt want to brush because i thought i was going to pop them or something. If i could go back, id beat the heck out of myself and tell myself to get a grip and listen to my dentist for once. I have little pockets in my gums and between my top two front teeth, the gum is barely attached, its like a flap. The ends of my top front teeth and all my bottom teeth in the front are clearish on the ends and yellow. Im brushing twice daily and flossing once daily now, and using a saltwater rinse. My mom thinks im a hypochondriac and doesnt want to take me to the dentist, i hope this is enough to at least keep it at bay until we have the money and she can take me.

  29. If I were smart I would be placing an ad to sell people stuff for Oil Pulling and teeth whitening…the comments below has let me to believe that even though we have google, people are lazy, believe everything they see online and would rather have other answer their questions than do their own research..ie What oil should I use for oil pulling??? Common people pull your heads out of your asses and do some research…neither this video nor the people answering are experts….

  30. How do you leave anything on your gums for half an hour!!! My mouth has this weird habit of forming saliva!

  31. my dentist is pretty good at telling me stuff about my teeth , its the hygentist that lies all the time !!

  32. I stopped gum And loose teeth with hydrogen peroxide. I lost three molars whi h did not have to happen . I going to buy coconut oil and mix it with Baking soda.
