7 Solutions For Bleeding Gums

Expert Talk

1. Salt Water Salt water is helpful in soothing your gum tissues, though high-blood pressure patients should avoid it. 

2. Damp Cotton Cloth Gently press the clean, damp cotton cloth against the affected portion to stop the gum from bleeding.

3. Use Ice Packs Hold an ice cube or a small ice pack for about 10 minutes against the bleeding gums. This will help in relaxing the gums.

4. Turmeric Paste Apply turmeric paste over the bleeding gums, let its natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties heal your gums.

5. Dentist Visits Visit your dentist twice per year for professional cleaning. Your dentist will let you know if you have ‘gingivitis’ and teach you how to brush your teeth properly. 

6. Antiseptic Mouthwash Minimise plaque that forms in your mouth.

7. Soft Toothbrush It’ll be gentle on inflamed gums, especially if you experience bleeding after brushing your teeth.
