Mouth is one of the part of the body which is prone to get infected by bacteria very easily. But the problems are not visible easily. Our oral health can be maintained by brushing your teeth properly twice a day which kills almost all the bacteria’s present in the mouth. The real risk increases when we do not brush our teeth properly and neglect our oral health. Our lack of attention towards our oral health can be seen when yellow buildup of dental plaque due to improper brushing. If such poor oral health continues the plaque buildup increases leading to the inflammation in the gums leading to gum swelling. One of the most common problem other than gum swelling is sensitivity that happens when the softer inner part of the tooth gets exposed which is called as “DENTINE”. Thousand of microscopic channels run through the dentine and when den tine gets exposed to any external factor (such as cold drink) can lead to stimulation of nerves of the teeth causing short sharp sensitivity.
We can do some home remedies which are convenient and we can use the ingredients available at our home for oral problems such as gum swelling and tooth sensitivity. Some of the remedies are as follows-
Salt water- Salt is an effective remedy for gum swelling which prevents the growth of bacteria in the mouth and prevents infections which may lead to several health issues. Just add one or half a table spoon of salt to a glass of lukewarm water and gargle with it twice a day till swelling subsides.
Clove- Clove bud extract is significantly used to control the growth of oral pathogens, which are responsible for many oral borne disease such as gingivitis and periodontics and also is used against tooth sensitivity.
Cinnamon- Cinnamon bark acts as an natural additive against tooth decay and gum swelling because of its antimicrobial property and its oil can be used to prevent teeth from becoming overly sensitive.
