Bad breath, red or swollen gums and sore gums are all symptoms for a dental issue named gingivitis. If you don’t treat this gum disease, it can lead to periodontitis.
Some of the factors that can cause gum disease are:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Genetic predisposition
- Poor nutrition
- Hormonal changes
- Some medications
- Some of the best remedies for gum disease are:
- Oil Pulling
Swish one tablespoon of sesame oil through your teeth for 15 minutes and then rinse your mouth. Repeat daily for a month.
- Sea Salt
Mix some sea salt with warm water and swish a sip of it for a few seconds. Repeat 2-3 times a day, after brushing.
- Tea Bags
Steep a tea bag in hot water for 10 minutes and then let it cool. Press the tea bag on the affected area and keep it for 5 minutes.
