Top Grade Homeopathic Medicines for Gingivitis

What is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis refers to the inflammation of gums resulting majorly from non-maintenance of oral hygiene. Other risk factors include diabetes, tobacco use, advancing age, poor nutrition. Poor dental hygiene leads to plaque formation on the teeth. The plaque finds a resting place in between the teeth gaps and along the gum lining. And this plaque, if not removed by brushing daily, hardens and irritates the gum line leading to gum inflammation. The symptoms arising therefrom are swollen, bleeding, painful gums. The gums appear dark red/purple, soft and puffy with a receding gum line. Halitosis (bad breath) and caries of teeth often accompany this condition. If not treated well in time, the disease advances, eventually leading to the falling of teeth.

Advantage of Homeopathic Treatment

The Homeopathic mode of treatment is very effective in treating gingivitis. It can treat gingivitis of both recent and chronic nature. The swelling, pain and bleeding are wonderfully controlled with Homeopathic medicines. These medicines, if started well in time, help treat the acute symptoms of gingivitis as well as prevent complications like periodontitis. Homeopathic medicines boost the body’s own healing mechanism to eradicate the disease at the root and prevent recurrence. Homeopathic medicines are natural and safe for use among all age groups.

Homeopathic Medicines for Gingivitis

The recommended Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis are Merc Sol, Kreosote, Carbo Veg and Alumen. Merc Sol is effective where gums are bluish red, swollen, painful and tender. Kreosote is a good choice among Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis in cases where the gums are bluish in appearance along with intense swelling. The gums are also puffy and protruding. Carbo Veg is one of the most wonderful Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis where bleeding gums predominate. The bleeding gets worse on cleaning the teeth. Alumen is considered the best prescription where the teeth get loosened from chronic gingivitis.

Merc Sol, Kreosote and Lachesis – Best Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with swollen and painful gums

The most effective Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with highly inflamed and painful gums are Merc Sol, Kreosote and Lachesis. Merc Sol is indicated where the gums have turned bluish red, painful, swollen and spongy. The gums recede and bleed in such cases and usually accompanied by increased salivation. Kreosote is one of the best selected Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis where the gums are bluish in appearance, painful, tender, protruding and puffy. Putrid odour from the mouth is another symptom in such cases. Lachesis works well in cases where the gums are dark purple in appearance, with pain and swelling. The person complains of a sour and peppery taste in the mouth.

Phosphorus and Carbo Veg – Top grade Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with bleeding gums

Phosphorus and Carbo Veg are rated among the best Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with bleeding gums. Phosphorus is one of the effective Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis cases where the gums bleed easily. The gums are sore, painful and tender to touch in such cases. Pain in the gums gets worse from cold, heat and also while eating. Carbo Veg is prescribed when gums are swollen and they bleed while brushing the teeth. The gums are scorbutic with oozing of blood. Offensive mouth odour is also prominent in cases where Carbo Veg will provide relief as one of the best Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with bleeding gums.

Thuja and Kreosote – Top Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with tooth decay

Helpful Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with tooth decay are Thuja and Kreosote. Thuja is excellent among Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with tooth decay next to the gums affected with gingivitis. The gums are dark red, retracted and swollen, with decayed and crumbling teeth. Homeopathic medicine Kreosote works well where tooth decay appears with puffy, spongy, bleeding gums. The person usually complains of a bitter taste in the mouth.

Merc Sol, Kreosote and Silicea – Best Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with bad mouth odour

Valuable Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis with bad odour from the mouth are Merc Sol, Kreosote and Silicea. Merc Sol is useful where offensive/putrid odour from mouth accompanies gingivitis. The mouth is moist with excessive saliva. Thirst may also increase. Kreosote is recommended in cases where horribly offensive odour from the mouth is present with gingivitis. The gums are puffy, swollen and bleeding. The condition leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. Silicea is the most helpful of Homeopathic medicines for gingivitis where offensive mouth odour is worse in the morning. The mouth feels dry, the gums are swollen and painful. Cold air and cold water worsen the pain in gums.

    • Hi Dr. Sharma,
      I had oral cancer in 2018 in which I had surgery and oral radiation. From last year I have receding gums problem. I can’t chew anything rather I have fluid or moist food. My gums are reddish and purple, swollen,puffy, shrinking, leaving the teeth naked, very painful. I don’t have bad breath and bleeding issues. My taste is mostly sour. Dry mouth is already happened due to salivary glands dysfunction but I think receding gums has increased this problem. Dentist has advised me to get all teeth extracted as my teeth bones are softer now and gums has lots of fibrosis.
      Kindly suggest the treatment. Thanks

  10. Sajjad Kamran says:

    Hi Dr. Sharma,

    I am almost 66 and have the problem of receding gums. By now I have lost six of my teeth and more are getting loose. Moreover, roots are getting exposed.

    My gums are not swollen and I do not have a history of bleeding gums.

    I am not a diabetic and my blood pressure is normal.

    I have though history of conjunctivitis and skin allergies.

    I know this is a fairly late stage but still is there a way to stop further recession of the gums? Would these homeopathic remedies have side effects like allopathic medicines?

    I am a Pakistani, based in Pakistan.

    A reply will be appreciated.

    Hi dr Sharma can you tell me what to take for receding gums roots are very painful . Thank you

  12. Sir, i have been suffering from receding gums for a long time. Although i consulted good dentists over the years, none of them told me the severity that i would have to face, nor remedies and precautions i had to take. As a result today my gums have receded badly, my teeth are loose and i am a bad candidate for implants since bone loss and gum loss are severe. Can homeopathic medi cines help?
    A very anxious patient.
