Bleeding gums, inflammation of the gums, gum infections and increased sensitivity of the gums and teeth are symptoms that indicate gingivitis or other oral diseases. Untreated gum disease and infection can sometimes lead to even heart disease and stroke. The dentist may suggest antibiotics or surgery.
CoQ10 is found to be very effective for gum disease and inflammation. CoQ10 quality may vary from brand to brand. You should select a high quality CoQ10 created through a microbe process. Many people find that rinsing the mouth with one capful of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide diluted in a little water helps in curing gum infection quite a bit. You can use this solution in the evening after brushing and flossing the teeth before going to bed. Even after the gum inflammation subsides you can continue doing this once a week.
Flossing and Interdental Cleaners
You should also clean your teeth regularly using dental floss or interdental cleaners (brushes, picks or sticks to help clean between the teeth). Cleaning between your teeth is very important. You can remove disease causing plaque by using an interdentally cleaner. Plaque is nothing but the sticky film of bacteria that coats your teeth. While tooth brushing helps to remove plaque from tooth surfaces, you must use an interdentally cleaner to remove plaque from between the teeth and under the gum line. Tooth decay and gum disease originates from these areas, so it is very important to clean them thoroughly to prevent cavities and serious gum problems. Hydrogen Peroxide helps to clear these bacteria between the teeth and in the gums, as well.
You should also inculcate good brushing and flossing techniques in your children. Starting this early will make this a lifelong habit. Flossing helps remove the bacteria that cause decay so that you can maintain the good teeth for a lifetime. This will also go a long way in stopping bleeding gums and receding gums.
Regular visits to the doctor to remove plaque buildup can also prevent gingivitis. Regular brushing and flossing will minimize plaque formation. You can also use fluoride toothpaste to prevent or limit gum disease. Severe gingivitis may require antibiotics in consultation with a physician. Good mouth and teeth care, follow ups with the dentist, and treatment of underlying illnesses are also necessary for preventing gingivitis.
