Top 20 Best Ways to Cure Bleeding Gums Natrually

How to treat your bleeding gums using Home Remedies?
Inflammation and bleeding of gums is also known as gingivitis. It is the initial stage of gums diseases and it is easier to control. If not treated and controlled, it may get worse and develop into advanced and complicated stages of gums diseases.

Gum bleeding is very common and many people suffer from it. The best advice always is to see your dentist who will diagnose your gums problem correctly and advise the best step to take. However a simple home remedy may work effectively. Most natural treatments at home are safe when taken wisely with a little bit of common sense. Here are some of them to treat your bleeding gums.

 1. Citrus Fruits

Deficiency in vitamin C can be the cause of gum diseases like gingivitis etc. Fruit like orange, lemon, broccoli and cabbage are the best and rich sources of Vitamin C. Use plenty of them to make up for the deficiency. Alternatively, go for health supplement providing vitamin C.


2. Milk

If you are not intolerant to lactose and have no other problems relating to drinking milk, then it is one of the best home solutions. Milk is rich in calcium and, therefore, can be  used as an effective home remedy for bleeding gums. However, bear in mind that milk is also a source of fat. When you take milk, fat may stick to your gum which is not good for healthy gums. It is, therefore, very important to brush your teeth after taking milk. Dentists advise not to take milk one hour before going to bed.

 3. Clove Oil

It is of the most effective treatments to cure gingivitis and other gum related diseases. Rub the gums with clove oil or just chew a piece of clove. Remember, you may experience a burning sensation but this will cure the disease.  

4. Gargling with Salt

This is the easiest of all home remedies. Salt is almost always there in any kitchen. Just take some lukewarm water and add a little bit of salt and gargle three times a day. Be careful not to use hot water to avoid scalding.  

5. Gargle with Triphala

Make a combination of triphala and water and gargle as you would with salt.  

6. Using Baking Soda or Sodium Bi Carbonate

Baking soda is another easy to use and readily available home remedy for bleeding gums. Dip your tooth brush in the baking soda powder and brush your teeth normally as you would do using toothpaste. Or make a solution of baking soda and water and swish around in your mouth a couple of times.  

7. Saline Solution

It improves blood circulation in mouth and reduces swelling. Using a saline solution to rinse in the morning and evening will effectively cure and prevent / stop gum bleeding.  

8. Raw Vegetables

Fresh and raw vegetables are great for overall health improvement. Vegetables are rich in vitamins and low in fats and calories. Chewing raw vegetables help to improve blood circulation in gums and thus may help to reduce and treat the bleeding of gums.  

9. Cranberry Juice

Cranberry Juice has anti bacterial properties and can help in fighting against gum problems. Bear in mind that the cranberry Juice sold in the supermarkets is either too much diluted or mixed with sugar. It is best to have home made fresh juice.
 

10. Sage Oil and Peppermint Oil

Some mouth washes contain sage oil, peppermint oil or chamomile tincture. Tooth paste or mouthwashes containing these oils are very beneficial for teeth and gums health.

11.  Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is anti-bacterial which kills the harmful bacterial in mouth. Add 1 to 2 drops of tea tree oil into lukewarm water and swish around after brushing your teeth. Alternatively, put a drop of the oil on your toothpaste and brush.

12. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

EVOO contains oleic acid and other flavonoids which are anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidants. If you gums are inflamed, EVOO is one of the best treatment. Take a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and swish around your mouth for a couple of seconds and then spit. It will wash away all the toxins. Repeat three times a day for best results.

13. Black Seed Oil

It is also known as miracle cure to treat any condition. It has ant-microbial properties and fights against harmful bacteria. Brush your teeth and then massage your gums with a few drops of black seed oil. You can also swish the oil around your mouth and then spit. Alternatively, add a few drops of black seed oil into a warm glass of water to make the most effective oral hygiene solution.

14. Honey

Honey is sweet, yet it is beneficial for gums because of its anti-bacterial properties. It is also rich in minerals and vitamins and provides the necessary nutrients for maintaining healthy gums. Take some organic or manuka honey and rub them on your gums twice a day.  

15. Alum

Gingivitis causes gums to be red and sore. Alum works perfectly against the redness of the bleeding gums. Dissolve some alum in warm water and gargle with the solution. Repeat three times a day.  

16.  Cayenne Powder

Sprinkle some Cayenne powder on your tooth brush and then brush. It is anti-bacterial and fights against the harmful bacteria. You may feel slight stinging sensation when you first brush.  

17. Use Aloe Vera

It is very useful against inflammation of gums. It destroys bacteria responsible for gingivitis. It also helps in speeding up of the process of healing. Massage the aloe Vera gel into the gums.  

18. Oil Blend Solution

Take a half a cup of extra virgin olive oil and add 5 drops of black seed oil, 7 drops of tea tree oil, 5 drops of myrrh oil, 3 drops of lemon oil and 3 drops of peppermint oil. Use the solution for massaging your gums after brushing your teeth.

19. Garlic and honey paste

Garlic is a very powerful anti-biotic. When combined with manuka honey, it forms a very powerful anti-bacterial tonic. Rub the garlic-honey paste on the gums. Please note that you will feel burning sensation. In order to reduce the burning sensation mix half a clove of garlic into one tablespoon of raw honey and apply the paste.

 20. Anti-Biotic

Eating synthetic anti-biotic is not natural and bears many side effects. We do not recommend eating anti-biotic in the drug form. However, your doctor or dentist may prescribe anti-biotic pills or capsules as a last resort.

        Few days back my gums started bleeding,when I got up in the morning n went to my sink. blood stained water came out while gorgling. I got shocked n went to the dentist who advised me using a soft tooth brush n use of a mouth wash n luke warm water with salt mixed for gorgling. He also gave me an anti biotoc n Flagel tablets. But the recipe has not worked so far. My gums are still bleeding specially in the morning. I intend going for Home remidies now along with Vitamins. I am a smoker n can’t quit it. Pl HELP.

          If you smoke, it is possible you have a Vitamin B12 deficiency – bleeding gums are a symptoms of that. It is impossible to overdose on B12 because it is water soluble, meaning any extra your body doesn’t need will be urinated out. Get a bottle of it at a drug store or Walmart (their brand of vitamins is quite good) and start taking sublingual tablets. They melt in your mouth and go to work faster than swallowing a tablet or capsule. Good luck.

    Milk does NOT have Vitamin C. It is rich in Vitamin D, not C. It’s very irresponsible to publish false information like this. Readers, this information is FALSE.

    • Jessica

      I think the writer means calcium not Vitamin C. Organic Facts also says milk is good for bleeding gums.

    • Kris

      It says absolutely nothing about milk having vitamin C. Calm yourself.

      • stalin

        Read passage properly and comment..

    • Joke Bakare

    Clove oil or eugenol is brilliant for rubbing on your gums, when they are painful from periodontitis. Just don’t apply it while hanging over your nice, white formica sink. It stains badly. My sink has yellow blotches all over it. Will have to replace the sink top. Also applied a bit too much oil and burnt the tender skin inside my mouth 🙁 .

  • Evelyn Froend

    Saline solution, and salt and water are basically the same thing…
