Swollen Gums Remedies

Swollen Gums Remedies / A Little Background

Swollen gums are included in a class of dental infections known as periodontal disease.

The word periodontal means, “located around a tooth”. In other words, periodontal disease can refer to any disorder of the gums or the soft, bony tissues surrounding the teeth.

Swollen Gums Remedies

Next to the common head cold, periodontal disease is the most common infection in the United States. It can definitely lead to tooth loss and the incidence of periodontal disease increases with age.


Swollen gums are the first stage of periodontal disease. It is also known as gingivitis, or inflammation of the gums.

Sticky plague (which is comprised of bacteria, mucus, and rotting food particles) covers the tooth, and eventually settles down at the base of the tooth. As plague builds up, it causes the gums to swell.

If you don’t get control over your swollen gums, then pockets form between the gum and the teeth and now the plaque has a really nice place to accumulate. As bacteria-laden plaque builds up, there is more swelling, pain, and pus forms, leading to abscesses and eventually loss of the tooth, or teeth. You also run the risk of heart disease because the infection can travel from your mouth (in the blood stream) to your heart and produce a life-threatening inflammation of the lining of the heart (endocarditis).

Underlying Causes of Swollen Gums and Periodontal Disease

  1. Neglecting flossing, correct brushing and use of Water Pik (especially with crowns). Never, ever, go to bed without brushing your teeth and flossing!

  2. Breathing through your mouth (due to stuffy nose) and not getting healed from chronic sinus infections which drip down and infect your mouth

  3. Poor fitting fillings, dentures or crown work which trapped food particles, which feed bacteria.

  4. Eating sugary, soft foods like caramels and soft candies. And not eating enough dense foods (like apples, raw vegetables, or raw nuts), which require a lot of chewing and exercising of the teeth, which strengthens them and massage the gums.

  5. Chronic deficiencies of Ester C (non-acidic Vitamin C), folic acid, niacin, calcium, and other B vitamins.

  6. Smoking alone triples the risk of gum disease. Stop being stupid…quit…even if you have to wear duct tape to work!

  7. Kissing and oral sex with a partner who is carrying the sexually transmitted herpes virus. People start out with swollen gums and then develop blisters on the gums and tongue.

  8. Certain prescription drugs which affect the ph of saliva and encourage the growth of bacteria in the mouth. Especially immunosuppressive drugs to treat cancer, arthritis, or autoimmune disorders.

  9. Drinking or eating from unclean dishes, or dishes not sterilized in the dishwasher. Eating and drinking after other people.

Healing Cleansing and Oxygenation Tips

  1. Brush your teeth even if it hurts with baking soda.

  2. Gargle with a strong solution of hydrogen peroxide.

  3. Rinse thoroughly.

  4. Put one dropperful of either Propolis extract or Goldenseal extract in your mouth, swish it around and hold it for at least 30 seconds before swallowing. If you are certain that you can’t stand the taste of these potent natural antibiotics, then swish a small amount of colloidal silver around your mouth and hold it before swallowing. All three things work as antibiotics.

  5. Buy a fresh package of q-tips or rubber (ribbed) finger massager that fits on your index finger to massage your gums twice a day to increase blood circulation to the region. This may hurt, but it is necessary. Disinfect afterward with hydrogen peroxide.
