Gingivitis

Inflammation of the gums is known as gingivitis. Bleeding from the gums is usually a sign of gum inflammation. Healthy gums are pale and firm, but diseased gums may become purplish red, swollen, and bleed when brushing teeth. Breath may smell unpleasant. The main cause of this condition is plaque buildup along the gum line due to poor oral hygiene. Bleeding gums can also be due to vigorous brushing or poorly fitting dentures. You may be prone to them during pregnancy or while taking certain drugs.

Home Remedies
  • Orange: Take one cup orange juice with 1/2 teaspoon natural sugar and a pinch of cumin which will help bleeding gums.
  • Apple: Eat a raw apple about an hour after meals which helps to clean the teeth and heal the gums.
  • Coconut oil: Massage the gums with coconut oil.
  • Lemon: Drink the juice of 1/2 lemon squeezed into a cupful of water.
  • Tea tree or clove oil: For infected gums— Apply one drop of tea tree or clove oil directly at the site of the pain.
Do's
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and replace toothbrush every 2-3 months.
  • Use dental floss or dental tape once a day to get rid of plaque.
  • Use toothpaste containing tea tree oil.
  • Eat raw, crunchy vegetables.
  • Consume foods containing low saturated fats and rich in fiber.
