Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums. It may sometimes occur as a result of infection or ill-fitting dentures, but most usually it is caused by an accumulation of plaque and impacted food around and under the gums.
Left untreated, gingivitis may lead to loosening of the affected teeth (periodontists) through damage to the membrane securing it.
Some natural remedies for gum disease are:
Antioxidants are a natural defense against free radicals. They scavenge them, “mopping up” free radicals before they have a chance to harm cells.
PEACH PIT TEA: Useful for mouth infections. Rinse your mouth with the hot tea 3 times a day.
Aloe Vera Gel: It is a healing agent and it will reduce some of the plaque in your mouth.(Note: If you try this remedy make sure and do not swallow any of the aloe because it can have a laxative action.)
*NOTE: If you are pregnant, please consult your doctor before trying any natural remedy.
