Gingival recession can be associated - in addition to bad oral hygiene - with the body's hormonal balance. Therefore, it often occurs in the form affecting adolescent adolescents, pregnant women, women during menstruation or when taking oral contraceptives.
When we notice the first symptoms of gum recession - bleeding gums, strong redness - we can use the following methods of treatment:
1. Frequent brushing
When gingivitis, brush your teeth after each meal for at least 5 minutes. We should also start using - if we do not do it - the dental floss and remove all the rest of the food from the gaps between the teeth.
2. Purchase of an electric toothbrush
Because the main reason for the formation of gingivitis is inadequate oral hygiene leading to the formation of tartar in the treatment and prophylaxis of inflammation, we should use electric toothbrushes. Ordinary toothbrushes remove only about 48% of dental plaque, and electrical ones by as much as 98% .
You can also purchase special mouthwashes, but we should check their composition and select those containing domiphen bromide or cetylpyridine chloride. They inhibit plaque development.
4. Rinsing with hydrogen peroxide
Oxidized water will inhibit the further development of bacteria that cause gingivitis. The hydrogenated water is mixed with water in a ratio of 1: 1 and this solution is rinsed for about 30-60 seconds 2-3 times a day.
5. Baking soda as a paste
Wash the purified soda in water in a small amount. The resulting substance is applied to the changed gums and brushed with teeth.
6. Lime and vitamin C
As dietary supplements, we should eat more calcium and vitamin C. They will help in reducing bleeding from the gums and strengthen teeth. We can also take these substances in foods: lemon, oranges, milk products and almonds.
7. Treat gums with natural soothing agents
After washing and rinsing your teeth, you can treat the gums with natural substances that alleviate inflammation.
Clove: Carnation has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Grind a teaspoon of carnations and apply them to the gums with a moist cotton swab. Leave them for five minutes, then rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and spill out the powder.
Turmeric: You can rub gum on turmeric and leave it on them for 15-20 minutes. Studies have shown a strong anti-inflammatory and soothing effect, effective also in the case of gum disease.
Aloe gel: Aloe has been used as a means of gingivitis in traditional herbal medicine from Cameroon hundreds of years back. It not only heals, but also perfectly relieves discomfort, burning and reduces swelling.
It's enough to apply the gel from the inside of the aloe leaves to the gums and leave it for a while, then spit it out, or just rub the gums with it.
Neem leaf gel: Research has proven that the gel from the interior of aloe leaves is as effective in reducing bacteria and gingivitis as a chemical mouthwash.
