The tissues that surround your teeth play a very important role in your body. Besides their aesthetic values (that you may look good when you smile), they have the more vital role of supporting your teeth. Being tissues, they are subject to infection and attack by disease causing germs and bacteria. However, you may not notice this onset of bacterial infection or attack because the infections are usually painless. This means there is a poor supply of nerve endings around gum tissue to notify you of an anomaly. That however, does not mean you are facing a minor problem, far be it! In fact, if the infection goes unchecked, which happens all too frequently because, as stated, victims are usually unaware of this, the infection results in a loss of a significant portion of your dental formulae – your teeth!
I have included for you 10 ways you can fight gum disease effectively at home, using homemade solutions. These are:
Use the old, tried, tested and proven solution honey! Among the many uses of honey is bacteria fighting, so rub some honey on your gums and enjoy nice taste plus antiseptic qualities.
Gurgle coconut oil in your mouth for a while, like 20 minutes and spit it out. Repeat the procedure and rinse with warm water. Coconut oil works wonders for hair as well, and it is its anti-fungal potency that is used so effectively when applied to teeth.
Eat fruits regularly, especially those that have vitamins C. They do the same job as lemons.
In case your infection is due to high acid levels in your mouth, then use baking soda. Mix it with water to a pasty state and brush with a soft tooth brush.
