Gum disease is what happens when you have poor oral hygiene. The bacteria that builds up in the mouth due to lack of brushing and cleaning, smoking, poor nutrition, stress and some medications, leads to red and swollen gums, plaque builds up, loose teeth, receding gums, and bad breath. To reverse this condition, or at least reduce your symptoms to start, try these home remedies for gum disease, and you'll see a change in the health and condition of your mouth, gums, and teeth.


1. Aloe vera

Not only is this naturally healing plant an anti-inflammatory, but it is also a bacteria killer, a natural disinfectant. Gel directly from the Aloe plant has been used for centuries to sooth and repair surface cuts and grazes, insect bites or rashes. When used in the mouth it can heal mouth ulcers, kill gum disease bacteria and freshen your breath. Simply massage your gums with the gel squeezed directly from the aloe plant, leave on for half an hour before rinsing clean with water. Repeat this several times a day. You can also use aloe vera juice and swish it around your mouth before spitting, but pure gel will work better.
