Home remedies for gum infection?
Mouth ulcers on the tongue, inside of the cheeks, or gums last from one to two weeks. Red, soft, and bleeding gums are a sign of gingivitis, caused by bacteria that feed on plaque. Bad breath is generally caused by poor dental hygiene or by gastrointestinal disorders. If it persists, consult your doctor.
01. Sea salt rinse for mouth ulcers
02. Dab on myrrh for healing ulcers
03. Liquorice for long-term relief from sores
Deglycyrrhizinated liquorice (DGL) stimulates your body to produce protective mucus, encourages healing of the mucous membranes, and fights the microorganism that may cause mouth ulcers. Buy chewable DGL tablets that have had the compound glycyrrhizic acid removed ( this acid can cause water retention and high blood pressure). Take one or two 380mg tablets ( Let them dissolve completely in your mouth ) three times a day. You can use this remedy as often as necessary and may want to consider taking DGL long-term ( for at least three months) if you suffer from chronic mouth ulcers.
