Gum disease at the initial stage can be treated by following basic hygiene routines for teeth and mouth, like brushing twice a day, mouthwash, Flossing etc. But if you feel that the problem is not getting solved or if you start feeling gum swelling, bleeding gums or pain in the gum area you should immediately visit the dentist and get it checked. If the gum disease is ignored they can lead loss of tooth.

Treatment for Gum disease depends on what is the level of your gum infection. There are treatments which are both surgical and non-surgical which a dentist will guide you after checking the severity of your gum disease. Below are the few surgical and non-surgical treatments

Non Surgical Treatments:

Deep dental cleaning where the dentist will deeply clean the gums and teeth to remove the deposits of plaque and tartar from them

Antibiotics and painkillers can be prescribed which can help in case of severe pain or swelling.

Surgical Treatments:

Flap surgery: Flap surgery includes lifting a flap of the gums and removing the tartar from the gumline.

Soft tissue grafts: Soft tissue is the treatment to stop the problem of gum recession. It also helps in improving the aesthetics of the gum line.

Bone surgery: It smoothes shallow craters in the bone due to moderate and advanced bone loss. Following flap surgery, the bone around the tooth is reshaped to decrease the craters. This makes it harder for bacteria to collect and grow.

These are few of the treatments which help you get rid of the problem of gum disease. To avoid going through any such gum disease it is always better to prevent by maintaining your basic hygiene for mouth and teeth.

Everyone wants to smile with confidence so that people know them with their smile, this makes people more vigilant about their gum care. It is important that mouth hygiene is done regularly to cure your gum disease. Practicing basic teeth care on a daily basis is not difficult. Proper practice of poor hygiene affects not only the teeth but also the gums. Some essential tips to cure gum disease are brushes and floss daily, check your diet, visit the dentist regularly, buy dental kits.

Curing Gum Disease:

There are many different reasons for gum disease or Periodontal disease and sometimes called "Pyoria".

1) Improper or inadequate home care.

2) Not seeing the dentist or dental hygienist on a regular basis.

3) Genetic disposition. This does not mean that if your parents lost their teeth, you will lose your teeth. This just means you need to be aware that you are a possible candidate for periodontal disease.

4) Occlusive trauma. This means that you bite may be off or you are grinding and clenching your teeth. Usually excessive wear on your teeth is a sign that you are doing this.

5) Habits, such as smoking. This is proven to accelerate the periodontal disease.

Most periodontal disease activity if caught early is very easily treated. It may require a deep periodontal cleaning and periodontal surgery. Look in the yellow pages for a PERIODONTIST, who is a gum specialist.

Here is more input from others:

  • Brush your teeth, floss them, and rinse with Listerine, also be sure to stimulate them regularly like you are brushing your gums. be gentle!
  • Supplement with a good multivitamin/multimineral, COQ10, and Peri-gum. Ideally amalgam fillings other metal, cavitations, and root canals should be cleaned up.

New answer;

Brushing and flossing alone cannot completely remove all of the plaque and biofilm from a person with gum disease. If it could, most gingivitis would be non-existent. Plaque biofilm is full of anaerobic bacteria (living without oxygen) that are deposited on your teeth and in the concave root surfaces under your gums. Your brush and floss can't physically reach all of these areas to completely remove these bacteria. However, with an irrigator, you can easily deliver a stream of water to flush the bacteria and loose particles out of these hard-to-reach areas.


Managing gum disease is all about daily plaque control - essentially sound oral hygiene. That means, in most cases, stopping the plaque in your mouth is really in your own hands. Brush every day. Floss every day. Period. 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.

Dental professionals recommend oral irrigation as a great way to really clean teeth and gums. Oral irrigators get what your toothbrush and floss, don't, so plaque and tartar and the resulting advanced gum disease never come back.

Oral irrigators flood the mouth with a jet of water under pressure to flush offending food particles and bacteria from the mouth. And most importantly, from under the gum line where the infection is. It is just like a wound on your arm - you must keep it clean for it to heal.

There are many types of irrigators. Fairly new on the market are irrigators that attach to your shower head or your sink faucet such as Waterpik or OralBreeze.

A search on Amazon will produce 99% of available products.

All types have pros and cons.

Introduction: Gum disease mainly affects the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. It is also known as periodontal disease. This type of disease commonly indicates the swollen condition of the gums.


  • Swollen in gums.
  • Puffed gums.
  • Loose teeth.
  • Bleeding gums.
  • To feel pain during chewing.
  • Pus between teeth and gum.


Poor oral hygiene is the common reason for all gum related disease. Always try to brush your teeth at regular interval or else it can cause plaque formation on your teeth. It is a mass of bacteria that easily grows on mouth surface. When you consume starchy food or sweet beverages, bacteria starts to convert carbohydrate into energy and acid at the same time. Formed acid starts to break down your gums and tooth strength.


Improve your good oral habits such as brushing habits, use toothpaste that contain the right amount of natural mineral, flossing your teeth at regular basis, try to quit smoking, visit your dentist on a regular basis.

Mouthwash is the best natural way to kill mouth bacterial, because it contains hydrogen peroxide and chlorhexidine.

You can also use a deep cleaning method such as scaling and root planning. Scaling is mainly used to remove tartar and root planning is used to remove rough spots from teeth. Sometimes, this procedure may result in bleeding, light swelling, etc.

OBViously, u cannot CURE heart disease, by chewing gum, though, you could prevent heart disease. THis is because, one of the causes for heart disease is bad breath, surprisingly, so, If you chew gum (especially mint) it could help prevent heart disease, but not CURE.

No, baking soda cannot 'cure' gum disease (periodontal disease). Currently, there is no universal cure for gum disease. Gum disease can usually be effectively 'controlled' with proper care and treatment, but once periodontal disease has been diagnosed, the signs and symptoms can return at any time. Periodontal disease is differentiated from simple gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) by the loss of periodontal attachment, that is the destruction of the tissue surrounding the teeth that attach the tooth to the jaw. A dentist or dental hygienist can examine your teeth and gums and tell you if you have periodontal disease or gingivitis. Baking soda can be incorporated into the treatment of gum disease, but has never been demonstrated to be effective in the control of gum disease by itself. The first step in controlling gum disease is determining the cause of the disease and the extent of the condition. The most common cause of gum disease is long-term poor oral hygiene and lack of professional care in a dental office. If caught early, gum disease can usually be controlled with improved oral hygiene and non-surgical treatment in a dental office. If the disease is advanced or severe, sometimes surgery is necessary to get the condition under control. Other factors that impact gum disease include smoking, worn out dental fillings or crowns, systemic conditions such as diabetes, a family history of gum disease (genetic predisposition), some medications, and inadequate nutrition. The best course of action is to see a qualified dentist and follow his/her advice.
