While these products and procedures may work, start by searching for a safer and more natural solution.

What is the Main Root Cause?

Bacteria! Whatever solution you choose, make sure that it does a superior job of killing bacteria. There are other related causes of the disease, however, bacteria is always involved. The destructive force of toxin-producing bacteria is evident as it continues to do its damage when unstopped. Do you have a problem?

This is the first stage and involves inflammation of the gum tissue and is accompanied by bleeding, bad breath, and tenderness. It is vital to learn how to treat gingivitis right away, since it is the beginning of a disease process. People usually do not lose teeth at this stage, but if not stopped can lead to periodontitis.


This is the advanced stage of gum disease wherein the infection has reached the bones and ligaments that support the teeth. Often pain and sensitivity, receding gums, halitosis, and loose teeth are associated symptoms. People at this stage often loose teeth or require dentures.

What are the Options for Natural Remedies?

One of the misconceptions people have is that natural products cannot be deadly enough to kill bacteria effectively. You do not have to use toxic chemicals in your mouth to kill bacteria. If you think about it, using these toxins makes no sense since those chemicals can lead to further damage to your gums and teeth. 

how to treat gingivitis naturally

Some of the best natural remedies for gum disease include botanical oils, such as the following:
  • Rosemary
  • Almond
  • Olive
  • Oregano
  • Mint family
  • Tea tree
Note that more ingredients does not always mean better. It depends on the combination and potency of the oils combined. You have to try what works best for you. Your dentist is the best judge of that when you go for your regular visit.
These are natural, but they have the ability to kill bacteria. These ingredients may be effective as an:
  • Anti-bacterial solution
  • Anti-microbial solution
  • Anti-inflammatory solution
  • Anti-fungal solution
All of these factors add up to work to remove plaque from your teeth while also helping to sooth your gums so that the gums can heal easier. Consider natural botanical oils as one way to address dental problems from the outside. Homeopathy is a natural way to address it from inside the body (see below).
Important Note: Note that natural mint oils, which are highly effective at killing bacteria that is usually the root cause of disease, may interfere with the effectiveness of a homeopathic remedies. Therefore, you should probably choose one or the other, depending on your conditions and severity of your symptoms; or If you do use them at the same time, make sure to take them at different times in the day.

What a Good Natural Remedy Should Not Do

A natural treatment does not do a few things. 
    • It will not further inflame your gums leading to further damage.
    • A natural remedy for periodontal disease will not discolor or spot your teeth like some toothpastes.
    • Natural remedies do not cost a fortune, which many of the surgical and laser procedures you may have considered using in the past due.
    • A natural gum treatment will not lead to other conditions of the mouth which are dangerous, including dry mouth.
    • The treatment will not encourage bacteria to re-grow like mouthwashes and toothpastes can do.
It sounds like a great option, but you may be wondering what you have to do to actually see results. What a natural remedy does is to work as an improved toothpaste product, as a mouthwash and as a topical treatment to your gums. These steps, along with proper flossing and regular dental appointments, can help you to cure gum problems for good. If you are suffering from periodontal disease, have gum recession, bleeding gums or bad breath, proper treatment comes in the form of a natural remedy.

Also Consider Battling Gingivitis Internally with Homeopathic Remedies.

If you have gingivitis or a more advanced disease (periodontitis), consider also fighting it not only with a natural remedy but also with an internal approach – homeopathy.
