Guava leaves are considered effective for providing relief from toothaches and gum disease due to their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and analgesic properties. Plus, the guaijaverin in guava leaves acts as an antiplaque agent.

  • Rinse and clean a few guava leaves thoroughly. Chew them and then spit out. Do this twice daily for at least a few weeks.
  • Another option is to grind some tender guava leaves and use it as a toothpaste.
  • You can also use a mouthrinse containing guava leaf extract.

8. Clove



You can also use clove to treat gingivitis due to its strong antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and analgesic properties.

  • Simply chew 2 or 3 cloves, 3 times daily to treat gingivitis.
  • You can also rub clove oil on your gums, leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Do this twice daily.
  • Another option is to add a few drops of clove oil to a glass of warm water. Use this mixture to rinse your mouth 2 or 3 times daily.

Follow any of these remedies daily until you are satisfied with the results.

Note: Pregnant women, small children and people taking blood thinning medicines should avoid using clove or clove oil.

  2. If a diascan report print that i do have gingivitis, but my gums are fine no bleeding or swollen gums can there be something else like sinus infection that the diascan shows. I suspected that a maxillo specialist wiring my teeth and I do not know the reason why. I suspected that a group of people did it to me to following me wherever I go for personal reasons.

    I would like to know if one would be able to see the wiring on a computer screen, because I suspect that it would not show up on tomogram.

    I really need some help. I suspected that there could be an unfair judgement against me and no body wants to come forward with the truth. Radiologists are also involved and family as well.
