What Natural Methods Can I Use for Bleeding Gums?

Bleeding gums, also called gingivitis, is a phenomenon that affects many people. Even if it is a chronic dental problem, it should not be overlooked since it can be a sign of periodontal disease, and sometimes even more general pathologies. Healthy gums are pink and do not bleed. And if your gums bleed regularly, it is best to go to your dentist, who can find the cause, and solve the problem yofu are having. It is not so easy to find the origin of this bleeding, which can be caused by different gum diseases, but also health conditions (which do not necessarily have to do with your teeth). If you suffer from this phenomenon repeatedly, it is best to address the problem fairly quickly. So here is all you need to know if your gums are bleeding, the probable causes, but also the best treatment for regaining teeth and healthy gums.

What Natural Methods Can I Use To Treat Bleeding Gums?

While scheduling an appointment with your local dentist is the best method to treat gingivitis, there are some natural methods you can use to treat bleeding gums. Those include the following:

Salt
You can, for example, make mouthwashes with salt water to deflate your gums or relieve sensitive teeth that are more likely to bleed. Indeed, salt has a purifying and decongestant effect. To do this, you need to dilute a teaspoon of coarse salt in a cup of lukewarm water and gargle with this solution for one minute, taking care not to swallow it. Then rinse your mouth with fresh water. Repeat twice a day after brushing your teeth (with a soft brush).
Sage
Sage also has sanitizing properties and helps treat dental inflammation. For example, you can infuse 3 g of dried sage leaves in a glass of hot water for ten minutes and use it as a mouthwash twice a day. Massaging your gums with sage gel is also a great alternative.
Mouthwashes
Mouthwashes are a great way to relieve and treat bleeding gums. For example, you can use baking soda (one teaspoon per glass of water). The latter has purifying and antibacterial properties ideal for gum inflammation. 
Raw Food
What you eat can also have positive effects on the bleeding of your gums. It is also recommended for people with chronic bleeding to eat more raw foods, which will stimulate and strengthen your gums. Take this opportunity to increase your vitamin C intake, as bleeding tends to be caused by a deficit.
Lemons
Lemon (when it is organic) also has soothing properties. It is usually enough to remove the zest and rub the white part on your gum several times a day to observe a marked improvement in the inflammation of your teeth and a decrease in bleeding.
Curative & Preventive Methods

And since prevention is better than cure, know that the best way to avoid having bleeding gums is to fight bacterial inflammation before it has time to settle on your teeth and form the famous dental plaque. For this, it is imperative to brush your teeth well after each meal (preferably three times a day, therefore). And specially to pay particular attention to your gums. To do this, adapt the movement of your brush by tilting it at 45 ° .

Some dentists also recommend that people who are more likely to experience bleeding gums opt for electric brushing. Many studies have shown that it is much more effective than manual brushing. Also, don’t hesitate to use dental floss or an interdental brush to prevent your meal from getting stuck between your teeth.

Amin Salvi Dental
Is Now Open!

The last few months have been challenging for all of us. We have missed seeing you, chatting with you, sharing stories with you and laughing with you. We are SO excited to finally be able to invite you back to our office!

As you already know, Amin Salvi Dental does not cut corners on safety and technology. We have always prided ourselves in exceeding the recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for infection control measures. During this closure, we decided to go above and beyond that by adding further safety measures, which have been outlined below. The comfort and safety of our patients, of our team members, and of our own families remain our top priority.

  • All essential paperwork (including a COVID-19 screening form) along with financial agreements are to be done prior to your appointment. We will be texting and emailing the links for the forms to be filled out at home or on your mobile device. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or feel ill, please reschedule your appointment and call your physician.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in the car and text or call the office. We will inform you when to enter the office so we can maintain social distancing protocols
  • When entering the office, it is mandatory to wear a mask or face covering. Although county guidelines are not as strict, we maintain this requirement for the safety of everyone. Due to a worldwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) we cannot provide masks. Should you require one, we will charge you $1 for the mask.
  • Patients must arrive to their appointment alone without family/friends. A single guardian will be allowed for minors, elderly and those with special needs or requirements.
  • We will be taking your temperature when arriving to our office and recording this in your records.

Here are a few additional things we are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy:

  • We have installed air purification systems in the main operatories
  • We have installed sneeze guards at the check-in and check-out areas. We request that when you are required to talk to the front desk administration, you stand behind those.
  • Before appointments, we will use a medical peroxide pre-rinse which has been proven to help kill virus particles

We will have new scheduling guidelines

You will be hearing from us shortly as we are rescheduling routine hygiene and treatment for everyone. As you can imagine, we have a large backlog of cancelled appointments so we appreciate your patience through this process.

If you have any immediate concerns, we request not to call the office but text us at the office number or email us at office.corona@aminsalvidental.com.

Due to the new protocols for physical distancing in the office, we may have limited availability of appointments. Due to this we require a minimum 48 hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. This allows other patients, who have been waiting, to be seen. Please be courteous to others.

For many procedures we will also be requiring a reservation fee in advance. This fee will be applied to your deductible or co-pay for the treatment and is not an additional fee of any kind.

We look forward to seeing all of you and catching up on the activities you have been doing to keep busy during this downtime!
