Best Ayurvedic treatment for  Bleeding gums - Alveda

Bleeding gums

Bleeding gums from the point of view of Ayurveda

Bleeding gums can be due to something as simple as improper brushing technique, or it can be a sign of a health condition that you need to check out.
Common causes of bleeding gums:
Gingivitis, a disease that causes inflammation of the gums
Too hard or not soft enough toothbrush
Certain medicines, such as blood thinners
Inflamed gums due to pregnancy (pregnancy gingivitis)
Poor quality dental restorations
Type 1 or type 2 diabetes
Lack of vitamin C and vitamin K
According to Ayurveda, the major cause of bleeding gums is the vitiation of Pitta dosha in the body. Excess Pitta in the gums cannot keep the blood in the surrounding blood vessels, which eventually leads to bleeding gums. Sometimes, it can also aggravate Kapha dosha by causing a bacterial infection of the teeth and gums.

How Ayurvedic doctors treat bleeding gums

For bleeding gums, Ayurveda offers a complete Sodhana treatment — purification of the body with light Vamana (emesis) and Mridu Virechana (purgation), which help bring the doshas back to normal. Another way to mitigate the doshas in the gums are Kavala and Gandusha procedures — rinsing the mouth using medicated oils and washes.
Since each case is individual, the exact treatment plan should be determined by an Ayurvedic specialist.

Tips for effective Ayurvedic treatment of bleeding gums

  • Hold a cool compress, a small ice pack, or an ice cube against swollen, bleeding gums
  • Antibacterial mouthwashes can both treat and prevent bleeding gums
  • Rinsing the mouth with salt water can help reduce bacteria and speed up healing process
  • Apply Turmeric paste to the gums — it eliminates the symptoms of gingivitis and bleeding gums
  • Quit smoking as it is a major cause of gum disease
  • Dip a small cotton pad in clove oil and apply it to your gums to reduce pain and inflammation
