What Are Home Remedies to Fight Gum Diseases?

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Watermark Dentistry
What Are Home Remedies to Fight Gum Diseases?Gum diseases are treatable more effectively and affordably using home remedies. You can eradicate gingivitis easily if you begin treatment in its early stages. Furthermore, eliminating the plaque before it turns into tartar is more crucial. Make sure to increase how often you brush and floss. The following are home remedies for gum disease:

Tea Tree Oil

According to research, this special oil has a range of antibiotic and antiseptic properties that help get rid of plaque from your mouth. Brush your teeth with toothpaste combined with a drop of tea tree oil. You can also add around three drops of tea oil to a cup of warm. Then take the solution, give it a 30-second swish in your mouth, and then spit it out. You should practice this at least thrice per day. Make careful you don't unintentionally swallow the tea tree oil.


Honey consists of natural antibacterial that helps eliminate germs that inflame the gums. After brushing, you should spread raw honey on your gums. Those with periodontal disease will primarily benefit from this.

Aloe Vera Mouthwash

Aloe vera can significantly reduce plaque on the surfaces of teeth. The aloe vera juice dramatically lessens gingivitis signs. Take some of the juice and give it a 30-second swish in your mouth. Spit the liquid out and do it again numerous times each day. Never purchase aloe vera from unlicensed vendors, and ensure you adhere strictly to the guidelines.

Pulling with Coconut Oil

The technique entails using coconut oil to clean your teeth and gums. Take some oil in your mouth, then spit it out. After that, rinse your mouth with water and spit it out. Drink a glass of water after that. Coconut oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.

Other home treatments for gum diseases include turmeric powder, lemongrass oil mouthwash, guava leaves mouthwash and sage mouthwash. In addition, make sure you take a balanced diet for your general and oral health.
