Stop bleeding gums

Do you seem to experience a blood bath whenever you brush your teeth? If you say yes, you are probably one of 80 per cent of American adults who suffer from some form of gum disease.

The most common periodontal disease is gingivitis. What is gingivitis? It’s a condition that leaves your gums soft, swollen, red, and bleeding when slight pressure is applied, for instance, while brushing your teeth or eating an apple.

Persistent gingivitis could lead to tooth loss, and more importantly, scientists have found bleeding gums to be linked with serious illnesses, like cancer, heart disease, leukemia, stroke and diabetes, even if you don’t smoke. It would be unwise to assume that gum disease causes serious health problems and healthy gums mean you won’t get ill. Nevertheless, oral hygiene and care are as important as the rest of your body.

Aside from teeth and gum cleaning visits to your dentist, you could treat and prevent sore, bleeding gums by taking supplements.

Try these natural remedies that can soothe your irritated gums:

Vitamin C
This ubiquitous vitamin has strong antioxidant power in helping your body heal from various infections and inflammation. Likewise, gingivitis-ridden gums need a big dose of vitamin C to treat swollen gum tissue.

Vitamin D
The sunshine vitamin has anti-inflammatory effects, like vitamin C, which helps to reduce susceptibility to gum disease.

Coenzyme Q10
This supplement reduces the depth of the bacteria-catching pockets that form between the teeth and gums when you suffer from gingivitis. It also speeds up recovery and slows down bleeding, which is especially useful after the stress of dental surgery.

Tea tree oil
You shouldn’t apply tea tree oil directly to red bleeding gums but choose a toothpaste that has traces of tea tree oil, as this natural remedy has proven antibiotic properties.

Folic acid
Also known as vitamin B9, folic acid in liquid form can accelerate healing when applied directly to the gums after brushing your teeth.

Natural mouth rinses
Gargle with non-sugared aloe vera juice if your gums are inflamed or with unsweetened cranberry juice that has potent antibacterial power. You can also drink and rinse your mouth with wheatgrass juice, calendula leaf tea, or chamomile tea, several times daily for relief.

Your gums should stop bleeding after two weeks of intensive supplement care. If your symptoms continue and do not get better, you should see your dentist for further advice.
