Topical Treatment for Mouth and Gum Sores – Consider Your options
If you are like me, you probably cannot stand the pain in the mouth – that is why you are searching for a topical treament for mouth and gum sores. There are a number of reasons for mouth and gum sores: gingivitis, periodontal gum disease, auto-immune disease, yeast infection (thrush), brushing too hard, or a vitamin deficiency or toxicity.
Internal Treatment for Mouth and Gum Sores:
- Balanced Diet, avoiding sugar and processed flour.
Topical Treatment for Mouth and Gum Sores:
Salt Rise: This is a tried-and-true method. You’ve probably used this before. The pain can be very evident when the salt is coming in contact with the tissue.
Alcohol or alcohol-based products: Perhaps you remember a parent or grandparent rubbing brandy on a sore tooth or mouth sore. There are over-the-counter products that essentially offer a variation of this approach. Mouthwashes or mouth rinses would fall into this category. One concern is that the alcohol and chemicals are very harsh and could cause more harm than good.
Natural or Herbal based Products: Usually these remedies utilize essential botanical oils that have certain properties. The oils can be applied topically to the wounded area. Some products will contain anti-bacterial properties by using botanical oils of almond, spearmint, and peppermint. If you have a sore, it is likely that bacteria is present. The danger is that the bacteria is below the gum line and causing damage not only to gum tissue and teeth, but to the supporting bone structure and jaw.
We found one natural topical treatment for mouth and gum sores that actually contains these same oils. It is effective since the oil gets into the nooks and crannies of the gum and teeth and stay there. It wards off infection and gum disease and allows the body to heal itself. Put this to the test right away.
