Gingivitis is really just  inflammation of the gums. This can occur after poor oral hygiene and result in loss of teeth, disease, and other conditions. There are multiple options to help treat gingivitis, so here are our best at-home remedies!

Brush Your Teeth Effectively

When brushing your teeth, make sure you are taking the proper steps for the right amount of time. You should be brushing no less than two times, two minutes per day. Brush the entire tooth, and don’t be afraid to get close to the gum line.

Use Mouthwash

Mouthwash helps clear the mouth of the bacteria you missed during brushing. The fluid can easily get in between the teeth and low into the gums. Make sure the mouthwash is antibacterial and contains fluoride.

Floss Regularly

Flossing is something that is often overlooked or put on the back burner when it comes to oral care. Don’t forget to floss as it can remove unwanted plaque build=up and other debris in the mouth.

The Right Toothpaste

There are special toothpastes made specifically for people with Gingivitis. Give one of these a try adding it to your daily routine.
