Keeping your gums pretty in South East London

07 / 01 / 2012

Whilst we are busy brushing away furiously at our teeth to keep them pretty and healthy, spare a thought for your gums, for they too need a little TLC too in south east London, if not, your teeth will fall out! Gum tissue is far softer that tooth enamel, so you should really think about that when buying a brush, and also learn how to use it with a good toothpaste as well. But when it comes to really caring for your gums, herbal remedies are excellent for this. Soaking your tooth brush and floss in tea tree oil first helps to take away any heat in the gums and then soothe them. Echinacea and Aloe Vera are excellent for massaging the gums after brushing and flossing as it rejuvenates the blood flow through the tiny veins; in some cases where gum disease has been present, such remedies have actually started to reverse the disease and should your gums start to bleed after brushing, table salt on the brush and in warm water to rinse with, stops the blood and heals the wounds. Finally, keeping up a healthy diet with lots of vitamins will not only strengthen your gums, but look after your heart and other vital organs in the long run.
