How to Treat Periodontitis in a Natural and Painless Manner

Periodontitis is a chronic infection that affects the gums and bone that support the teeth, which can lead to teeth loss.

The cause of periodontal disease are millions of bacteria that live in our mouth and multiply due to improper diet or poor hygiene.

Statistics show that between 30% to 40% of people suffer from this disease.

Periodontal disease is one of the most common causes of tooth loss in adults.

Unfortunately, periodontal disease is an insidious disease that often goes with mild symptoms, so most people do not know they have it until it is too late.

What symptoms to look out for

hypersensitivity, swollen or inflamed gums
bright red or purple gums
often bleeding gums
strange taste in the mouth
pus between the teeth
spacing between teeth or loose teeth
pain in the teeth and gums
Treatment of periodontal disease

Conventional methods of treating periodontal disease in most cases are painful and painstaking, involving frequent visits to the dentist, but sometimes do not bring the desired result.
Apart from visiting the dentist there are things you can do at home to improve the results.
Coconut oil

Natural recipe, which includes daily mouthwash with coconut oil, it is really effective in the treatment of periodontal disease.

Coconut oil nourishes the gums and teeth, prevents the growth of bacteria, and also relieves pain and inflammation.

Every morning for 15-20 minutes swish in the mouth tablespoon of Coconut oil, after which it spit out.
Turmeric has strong yellow color but do not worry if you dip your tooth brush with coconut oil in turmeric you will not get yellow teeth, on the contrary your teeth will be whiter.
 Volatile oils

Many essential oils have antibacterial activity. You can use them to prevent or stop periodontitis.

Essential oils can rub directly to the right (be sure to dilute it 1: 1 with almond or olive oil). You can dilute with water and rinse regularly with her mouth.

We recommend that if you want to use essential oils to ask an experienced aromatherapists.

Oils that help with periodontal disease:

tea tree oil
neem oil
peppermint oil
oil of oregano
clove oil

There are available and toothpaste with essential oils and herbs. Regular application of such toothpaste helps with periodontitis.
Vitamin C

There is a well known association between vitamin C deficiency and gum disease. In the 18th century sailors consumed limes during long journeys in order to prevent bleeding gums.

The research, published in the Journal of Periodontology, suggest that people who have a deficiency of vitamin C have a higher risk of periodontal disease.

In addition of helping the prevention of the growth of bacteria, it helps faster regeneration of connective tissue and bones.

Eat foods rich in vitamin C such as oranges, kiwi, mango, grapefruit, strawberries, red peppers, broccoli. You can enter vitamin C and as a food supplement.
Vitamin D

Vitamin D has anti-inflammatory properties and may reduce susceptibility to periodontal disease. An analysis of 6700 patients showed that people with a greater amount of vitamin D in the body have a much smaller percentage of periodontal disease.

To get enough vitamin D, try to regularly expose yourself to the sun.


Coenzyme Q10

There is research linking gum disease with a lack of coenzyme Q10 in the body.

Coenzyme Q10 is a natural antioxidant that is produced in our body. Coenzyme is responsible for many biochemical processes in the body.

Unfortunately, over the years the production of coenzyme in the body decreased. Its deficiency is associated with many conditions such as allergies, asthma, heart disease and so on.

Research at Osaka University of Japan have shown a significant improvement in people with periodontal disease, which in the course of 3 weeks used toothpaste with coenzyme Q10.

Additional amounts of coenzyme Q10 can enter the food or in the form of supplements.

Good old propolis on which we often forget, helps with many diseases as well as periodontitis.

Propolis is a natural antibiotic that protects the body against viruses and bacteria. Regularly rinse mouth with propolis will cure periodontitis.

Mix 15 drops of propolis in half a glass of water several times a day rinse your mouth with this solution.

In pharmacies you can obtain and Throat Spray with propolis, which can be used as a spray to take care of your gums.


Regular oral hygiene

The cause of periodontal bacteria that proliferate in dental plaque, and then attack the right and the bones beneath them. Nursery bacteria is food that remains in the mouth after a meal.

Regular oral hygiene can prevent diseases of the teeth and oral cavity.

Brush your teeth several times a day.
Avoiding stress

The latest research is linking stress with periodontal disease. Students who participated in the research, had an increase of periodontal disease after the stress they felt during the exam.

Stress is able to completely destroy our immune system and give the “green light” for many diseases. Avoid it!
