Tea Tree Oil for Gum Disease

gumsPlaque, gingivitis and bleeding gums can all cause uncomfortable dental problems, but luckily they can all be treated naturally with tea tree oil. The antiseptic and antifungal properties of tea tree oil make it a great fighter against fungi and bacteria that can linger on food particles left in your mouth. However, it is important to remember that undiluted tea tree oil should never be ingested, instead ask your dentist for recommendations on toothpastes and mouthwashes that contain this natural, healing oil.[1]

Find tea tree oil products in your local health store. Keep in mind that tea tree oil is not the only natural treatment for your gums. Reducing stress, drinking 100% cranberry juice and increasing your intake of Vitamins C and D could also help you maintain healthy gums.
