Best Ayurvedic treatment for Gum problems - Alveda

Gum problems

Gum problems from the point of view of Ayurveda

Gum disease is a very common condition where the gums become swollen, sore or infected. Plaque is the primary cause of gum disease.
It begins with bacterial growth in your mouth and may end — if not properly treated — with tooth loss.
When you forget to brush, floss teeth, and rinse the mouth with mouthwash, a sticky film of bacteria and food called plaque builds up around the teeth. After 72 hours, plaque hardens into tartar, which forms along the gum line and makes it hard to clean your teeth and gums completely. Over time, this buildup irritates and inflames your gums, causing gum problems.

How Ayurvedic doctors treat gum problems

In Ayurveda, teeth are part of Astidhatu — bone tissue, so that their sockets are like joints. For gum problems treatment, Ayurveda usually suggests a complete Sodhana procedure, what means purification of the body. It includes following Ayurvedic therapies:
Vamana (emesis)
Mridu Virechana (purgation)
Both procedures help bring Vata and Kapha doshas into normal functioning. Another way to balance the doshas in the gums is the Kavala and Gandusha procedure, which means rinsing the mouth with medicated oils and decoctions.
In Ayurveda, Amla fruit is a general rebuilder of oral health. Amla works well as a mouth rinse. Triphala is a combination of 3 important Ayurvedic herbs which are Amalaki, Haritaki, and Bibhitaki, each having unique beneficial properties of its own. Its antimicrobial and astringent properties are effective for treating a wide-range of gum diseases including bleeding gums, plaque build-up, and periodontitis.
