Home Remedies: for Bleeding Gums

A list of home remedies for bleeding gums

Many people suffer with the common problem of bleeding gums. This
can often happen when we brush our teeth, but you may also find blood leaking
from the mouth at night.

This can be very worrying, but the good news is that it is very
easy to treat bleeding gums naturally at home

Let's take a look at some of the best natural remedies available
to treat this problem.

  1. Wheatgrass Juice
Mix a little water with a teaspoon of wheatgrass juice, and swish
around the mouth for 3 minutes twice a day. This naturally fights infections in
the teeth and gums, and lowers inflammation of gum tissue.

  1. Baking Soda Paste
This is a natural product which is often used in cooking. Make a
paste by adding a little water to some baking soda and gently brush the teeth
and gums. This gets rid of acids in the mouth which may be causing the gums to
bleed, also destroying harmful bacteria which sits around the teeth edges. Do
this twice per day.

  1. Salt Water
If you have bleeding gums it is likely that the gums are inflamed
and you may even suffer with toothache. Salt water is an excellent remedy for
this. Mix 1 teaspoon of sea salt with 250ml of warm water. Gargle with this
mixture and rinse around the entire mouth. This gets rid of mouth pain quickly
and can heal the gums when used regularly. Do this three to five times per day.

  1. Neem Leaves
Neem leaves are highly effective in treating problems with the
gums, skin and tissue matter of the body. 
They destroy harmful invaders and get rid of bleeding gums quickly. Mash
a handful of leaves using a pestle and mortar to make a paste. Boil these in 1
litre of water for 15 minutes. Store this and use as a natural mouthwash and
gargle for the next 3 days. Use morning, noon and night.

treating bleeding gums.
