Receding gums is another common dental condition, and some of its first symptoms include:
- higher sensitivity
- larger or longer looking teeth
- tooth ache
Therefore, it is important to immediately take action and visit the dentist as soon as you notice even a tiny gap between the gums and teeth. Then you will go under a tooth scaling process which will remove plague and tartar from the area between and beyond the gum line. However, if your situation is not that serious, you can prevent receding gums using natural homemade therapies and remedies.
- Coconut or Sesame Oil
Both coconut and sesame oil are loaded with potent anti-inflammatory properties and have been used to treat cavities and remove toxins from the oral cavity for centuries now. They also tend to coat the teeth and protect them.
2. Green tea
Most of us are aware with the health beneficial properties green tea provides, but many people haven’t heard of green tea as a natural remedy that helps tighten the bond between the gums and teeth and reduce inflammation and swelling.
3. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is considered the most common product for skin care, and the best thing about it is that it can relieve inflammation, repair cell structure and treat receding gums fast.
4. Clove oil, Myrrh, and Eucalyptus oil
These three oils can do wonders when it comes to numbing the pain and soothing toothaches. Apply clove oil directly on your gums to achieve these two effects, but be sure to consult with a doctor before doing so. Eucalyptus oil on the other hand can kill off germs and prevent oral diseases, but be sure to dilute it before applying it on your gums. Myrrh oil also helps eliminate pain, just crush it well and mix it with some water before applying it on your gums.
5. Lemon oil
Lemon oil has achieved its fame thanks to its potent anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties which can promote gum reconstruction, treat halitosis, aid in the growing back of gums and boosts gum regeneration, all while refreshing your breath thanks to its powerful scent. However, do not apply too much of this oil as it can damage the tooth enamel.
