7 Comments for the Gum Pain Home Remedy

Dr. D

- Avoid touching your gums excessively with your tongue, fingers, toothbrush etc as this can lead to further irritation and possibly infection.

- Try swishing with a solution of warm salt water for two minutes at a time. This creates a saline environment in which most bacteria cannot survive thus preventing infection. (Do this every three hours or whenever pain arises.)

- Eat softer foods while the healing process is taking place and be sure to clean the mouth thoroughly after eating.

****NOTE**** IF TEETH BEGIN SHIFTING OUT OF PLACE OR THE SWELLING AND PAIN DO NOT SUBSIDE AFTER TWO WEEKS MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR DENTIST.

Any advice on how to help with the receding and pain?

I am an older person on SS, have gum pain/disease and cannot afford a dentist. First I gently brushed my teeth, flossed and rinsed my mouth with peroxide and some warm water, then again with apple cider vinegar and baking soda & warm water. Afterwards I made a poultice by steeping an herbal tea bag for a minute or two, then removed more than half the contents without destroying the bag. I then added to the bag a small amount of ground cloves, dry mustard, a few drops of apple cider vinegar and vanilla extract. I folded and rolled it up and tucked in the painful gum area. Feels so much better so far!

Hi Gracie,

I saw you posted a year ago, but I had to respond to your post, as I too can't afford to go to a dentist, and have the same problem as you. I am going to try your remedy. Thank you for your post.
