The best way to rid yourself of the pain is to get rid of the gum disease. Clean the gum line with a nice soft brush and floss, and massage the gums to increase blood flow. Tf the disease is too far advanced you may need treatment by a periodontist; this is a dentist who specializes in gum disease. Gum disease is progressive and without treatment can lead to bone loss and loose teeth.

A temporary pain relief measure is to use cloves, not cloves of Garlic, but the kind that are found in the spice section of the supermarket. Hold in the mouth and gently suck one or two for 10 minutes. Spit out and gently rinse the mouth with warm water.

Managing gum disease is all about daily plaque control - essentially sound oral hygiene. Brush and floss every day. Your dentist or oral hygienist may recommend fluoride toothpaste or tartar reduction rinses. Colgate Total is approved by the FDA for helping to prevent advanced gum disease by reducing plaque and tartar.
