Tea tree oil contains antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties that can provide quick relief from irritated and inflamed gums.

  • Mix a few drops of tea tree oil in a glass of warm water. Use it as a mouthwash twice daily.
  • Brush your teeth with toothpaste containing tea tree oil as the main ingredient to ease discomfort.

Follow these remedies daily until your gums look healthy again.


Note: Make sure not to swallow tea tree oil. It can cause stomach problems.

8. Oil Pulling

Whether it is inflamed gums or any other dental problem, oil pulling is a good way to prevent oral health issues. This age-old Ayurvedic practice helps reduce growth of bacteria in the mouth that causes infection. It even prevents plaque formation and strengthens the gums.

  1. Put 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in your mouth.
  2. Swish the oil around your mouth for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Spit out the oil, then rinse your mouth thoroughly with warm water.
  4. Finally, brush your teeth.
  5. Do this daily in the morning before brushing your teeth.

Note: Do not gargle or swallow the oil.

  1. Thank you for the remedy peroxide and warm water help the pain go away I thank you for that remedy I didn’t know such a thing could help so thank you

  2. Salt water really helped a lot I tried 2 days ,1st day nothing happen but second day white pulp came out from swellings without pain , great remedy.

  3. I have injured accidently my upper gums through cinnamon sticks in food, how do I get rid of this swelling n pain through home remedy

  4. Great information…the only thing that i disagree with is the suggestion to have diary products for calcium when it has been know for years that diary actually depletes the body of calcium. Even the World Health Organisation have acknowledged that. Having a diet high in greens, fruits, beans and seeds will give you all the calcium you need.

  5. I tried applying Turmeric+Baking Soda+Rock Salt. Mixed all these with few drops of water and applied on the swollen gum areas twice a day for 3 days. Swelling has completely vanished and I am really thankful for giving such a homemade remedial ones. If not, I would have gone to the Dentist and those antibiotic and pain killers would have just given timely relief but the infection would have still remained. Thank you once again…

  6. The Tumeric has helped a lot .
    It beats taking pain killers
    I dont want to run off to the dentist again as they seem keen to put people on antibiotics (sometimes necessary)
    Also some dentists are mad on Root canel treatment which is horrendous
    Keeping a dead toxic tooth in ones mouth

  7. Just tried salt water by rubbing in on my gums,,,seems to be helping but does burn a little bit,,,first time I have tried it,,
