How to "fix" the gum on your own?
Many people are terribly afraid of dental offices. In addition, inflammation of the gums does not seem to them a very dangerous disease. Therefore, the treatment of gum inflammation at home is so popular. Quickly get rid of pain, swelling and redness will help decoctions of:
- chamomile flowers;
- oak and linden bark;
- St. John's wort, mint and oregano;
- calamus roots;
- strawberries (leaves).
To prepare infusions of these plants (except chamomile) should be according to the traditional scheme: put the dry collection in boiling water and boil for a couple of minutes. Oak bark is boiled on low heat for at least 30 minutes, then add a portion of cold water. Chamomile poured boiling water, hold for 10 minutes in a water bath. Then all the broths are cooled and used for rinsing. Repeat such manipulations should be at least 3 times a day.

Healing compositions from improvised means
If you do not have medicinal herbs at home, then try to solve the problem with the gums, using the more unusual recipes of alternative medicine.
- Make an anti-inflammatory solution, which includes 50 ml of pre-boiled water and 3 tsp. hydrogen peroxide. If you see that peroxide has dropped to the bottom of the tank, do not worry: it should be so. Gradually, it dissolves. With this composition, rinse the oral cavity for about 10 minutes. Then rinse your mouth with plain water.
- Prepare a homemade medicinal composition of half a teaspoon of soda, a couple of drops of lemon juice and 15 drops of peroxide. All these components mix well. The mixture will have a thick texture. Use it as toothpaste. After this procedure, do not eat food for a quarter of an hour.

The positive effect is due to its disinfectant properties.
In addition, for rinsing it is advisable to use such well-known and proven tools such as furatsilin, solution of potassium permanganate, soda.
When is it better to abandon amateur?
Most people treat their teeth, and even more so - the gums, with surprising nonchalance. If something inside is hurt, many still reluctantly go to the doctor so that he can prescribe treatment. Many people are trying to eliminate the inflammation of the gums at home, on their own. But in some situations this not only does not help, but also hurts: you can lose a tooth.
The main rule of successful treatment of sore gums is the elimination of the cause that provoked such a phenomenon. If gingivitis or periodontitis is the culprit, then the independent use of anti-inflammatory rinses (solutions or gels) will provide only short-term improvement and for some time will make a person forget about inflammation. But the destructive effects of these ills will continue. The disease will return again and show itself with more pronounced symptoms.
If the inflammatory process was caused by overhanging edges of fillings or short dentures, then only a dentist can solve this problem. No home rinses can cure and periodontitis - professional and complex treatment is necessary.
The pledge of gum health (and eventually teeth) is a regular check of their condition at the dentist. If any uncomfortable sensations arise in your mouth, then do not rush to get stocks of medicinal herbs to prepare rinse solutions, and do not wait until the inflamed gums keep you awake at night. It will be correct if an experienced dentist will be engaged in the treatment of such pathology.
