How To Stop Bleeding Gums In Their Tracks

Bleeding gums are a symptom of disease and to get your gums back to healthy you will have to make a few decisions about your dental health in general.  You need to examine your dental routine and the tools or implements that you use.  An example would be to examine your mouthwash.  If it contains a high percentage of alcohol it could actually be masking some telltale symptoms of gum disease like bad breath.

Bleeding gums happen because your gums are irritated, inflamed and infected with harmful bacteria.  What you need to know is how to control the growth of those bacteria and how to remove plaque from under the gum line, where periodontal pockets form. When you remove the plaque and control the bacteria your gums will stop bleeding and begin to tighten up again, sometimes in as little as 3 days.

If you really want a dramatic change quickly you may want to try a Hydro FlossIt cleans your teeth from under the gum line and eliminates the need for regular flossing, which is a good thing.  Using water is also about as natural as you can get, so if your worried about harmful chemicals this is a great choice for you as well.

Another great thing you can do is chane your toothpaste from a chemical laden, artificially colored chemistry experiment to an herbal paste that uses green tea to help control bacterial growth like Tooth And Gums PasteSimply by using a natural paste and warm water you can dramatically reduce bacterial growth and increase blood circulation in you gums so they can heal even faster.

The last thing you can do is help boost your body’s immune system.  Oral health Complete can help reduce inflammation in your gums and increase blood circulation s well.  Once your gums are less swollen they can do a better job of repairing themselves and you can get back to life as usual.
