Bleeding gums with essential oils
How to treat bleeding gums with essential oils – suggestions from the web:
Bleeding gums are very common among adults. Up 95% of the adults have it or at least had it. If you can’t get rid of it and it lasts longer than a month or two it’s a very serious alarm sign. Do not hesitate to panic, it is most likely gum disease but can be a sign of diabetes, cancer and other diseases so go meet your dentist or GP. Still, even if it’s “just” gum disease, it is a serious condition that can lead to teeth loss. We all have one set of teeth that should serve us for 80-100 years so we should treat them accordinglly. It is very important to clean your teeth really good, I very much recommend Dr. Ellie’s system for cleaning your teeth if nothing else work. It looks like there is something wrong with many commercial products, most people today do brush their teeth twice a day and some even floss and still so many people have bleeding gums so don’t blame yourslef for not cleaning properly, maybe you just use the wrong toothpaste.
Still essential oils can help in many cases, try them first and see if it works for you.
Salt and baking soda for oral health
Many recipes online call for salt and baking soda for teeth whitening or as on ingredient in a toothpaste or mouthwash. I actually tried it and not only it does not work, it actually made my teeth yellow. Fortunately it was reversible but I read about it and those ingredients are not recommended, certainly not on high concentrations for use on your teeth. Salt and baking soda are very harsh and can damage the tooth enamel. This is why it is not recommended to brush teeth vigorously but thoroughly and gently.
