Managing gum diseases
By  AAPL Staff Writer

Gum diseases are quite normal today; and there is basically nothing that has to be worried about it if and when you suffer from gum disease. The main thing that has to be done when suffering from gum disease is to visit the dentist. The dentist will be able to prescribe and advise suitable treatment for your gum disease. However besides the treatment that you receive from the dentist, it is possible to control and prevent recurrent occurrences of gum diseases with the help of ayurvedic medicine.

With gum diseases, you find inflammation in the gums surrounding your teeth which may lead to the destruction of the jawbone if left untreated. Gum disease is not only one of the most common causes for tooth loss, it is also a risk factor for coronary heart diseases and periodontitis, a gum condition which is often called pyorrhea or pus discharge.

There are several herbal remedies available for treating gum diseases, according to ayurvedic science. Sage oil, Echinacea, caraway, myrrh, peppermint oil, clove and menthol chamomile can be used for treating gum disease. There are other herbal remedies available for treating gum disease and are found as a mixture of numerous alkaloid rich herbs. Ayurvedic practitioners suggest taking 0.5 ml of the herbal mixture while mixing it with half a glass of water, thrice a day.

Liquid herbal remedies have to be swished in the mouth to ensure all corners of the mouth are reached by its active constituents. The mixture is then spit out after a few minutes and to prevent recurrences, the mixture can be used in diluted amounts, once in a while.

There are herbal remedies for gum diseases that are made from the herb bloodroot which has high concentrations of alkaloids, especially sanguinarine. Sometimes alkaloids are added to toothpastes and oral hygiene products as an inhibiting factor against oral bacteria.

It is possible to use bloodroot herbal remedies for treating gum diseases. An alternative is to use toothpastes and mouth washes containing sanguinarine, the chief allkanoid found in bloodroot herbal remedies. According to a study conducted by ayurvedic doctors, bloodroot herbal remedies work better when they are used or taken along with zinc lozenges.

This is the reason why some toothpastes found in the market today contain alkaloids coming from both bloodroot and zinc as these two help in the reduction and control of gum diseases. .
