Gingivitis or gum-disease is actually caused by improper cleaning on someone’s gums and teeth. In fact, gingivitis is a very common but mild infection of gums whereby anyone can actually develop gingivitis and most people with such a gum-infection may not even be aware of it. On the other hand, the most symptoms of gingivitis include; gum redness, irritation, puffiness and swelling. Additionally, some people with Gingivitis may also experience receding-gums, loose-teeth, bad-breath and gum-bleeding especially when flossing or brushing. All in all, you should know that the major cause of gingivitis is poor oral-hygiene because it allows plaque to form over your teeth but I have provided you with some of the techniques on how to treat this gum-disease even when at home.
HOW TO TREAT GINGIVITIS AT HOME:
- Try using oral-probiotics: oral-probiotics actually contain good-bacteria that help in restoring the natural-balance of bacteria within your mouth after using any oral-antiseptics that are usually found in toothpastes and mouthwashes. In fact, some oral-probiotics contain bacteria called ProDentis that is naturally found in saliva and breast-milk.

On the other hand, a turmeric mouthwash is an effective and mechanical plaque control that can prevent gingivitis and plaque compared to traditional chlorexidine mouthwashes.
