There are 8 out of 10 adults that suffer from gingivitis. Common symptoms are redness, irritation, inflammation and bleeding of gums, usually when brushing. Gingivitis is caused by plaque building bacteria and infections due to poor oral hygiene. When left untreated, gingivitis may lead to a severe gum disease called periodontitis that affects deeper tissues and bones, which eventually leads to tooth loss.
The mouth is an essential part of the body; it may act as a gateway to detect developing illnesses internally. Therefore, it is important to take any mouth diseases seriously and have it cured immediately once signs and symptoms occur.
Most cases of gingivitis are mild and can be treated with simple and natural medications. By simply maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following the advice of your dental practitioner, gingivitis can be controlled.
The primary culprit of gingivitis is bacteria caused by unsanitary practices. Thus, preventing such infections from building up in your mouth through your teeth and gums is the first step to controlling gingivitis to develop. There are four methods to practice for keeping healthy oral hygiene:
The practice of saltwater rinsing to treat mouth diseases has been in practice for hundreds of years. Ancient civilizations first used salt as part of their oral care and medication. Since salt is a natural disinfectant, it is commonly used as an ingredient for health and medicines. Many studies and researches were conducted to prove its effectivity in fighting off bad breath, oral bacteria, gingivitis, and sore throat. Aside from its verified beneficial effects, it is very cost-effective, since its main components are readily available in the household.
To prepare salt water rinse, simply add ½ to ¾ teaspoon of salt to a cup of lukewarm water. Mix it well until all the salt particles are diluted. Gurgle the solution and have it swish entirely in the mouth for ten seconds, then spit it out. Repeat the process three times. Make sure that you will not swallow the salt solution because it could lead to dehydration.
It is true, brushing alone is not enough for total oral care. Especially, when you have gingivitis. Fortunately, there are many recipes for a natural homemade mouthwash that you may prepare or over-the-counter products that your dentist may suggest.
Some of the homemade mouthwash for gingivitis treatments are:
While professionals would suggest brands such as Listerine, Crest Pro-Health, Colgate, Biotene and CloSYS to prohibit germ build-up and gum diseases.
There are two types of oil that are recognized to cure gingivitis through oil pulling. Similar with saltwater mouth rinsing, this method has been practiced for several years originating from Ayurvedic medicine. In this process, coconut oil or arimedadi oil is swished around the mouth for 20 to 30 minutes. Then, rinse with water. It is usually done before brushing the teeth. Some of its proven benefits are the reduction of gum swelling, pain relief, whiter teeth, and fresher breath, even clearing sinuses and relieves headaches and migraines.
In most cases, preparing homemade remedies can be hard work for people on the go or some ingredients for formulating them are not available in your household. Generally, dental professionals will prescribe oral antibiotics, which usually taken for seven to fourteen days depending on the severity of the disease. However, these prescription drugs have side effects that are very discomforting to most patients.
