Have you ever brushed you teeth and noticed that your gums were bleeding?
This is a very common symptom of gingivitis. It manifests itself during the initial phases of gum diseases, which may be accompanied by swelling and sensitivity.
If the disease worsens, it may cause irreparable damage, such as periodontitis.
Although there is no cure, periodontitis can and should be controlled in order to keep it from worsening and compromising the health of your teeth and body.
Periodontitis is mainly caused by the bacteria P. gingivalis, which leads to cavities.
Turmeric appears to be good at fighting P. gingivalis, as well as preventing the formation of layers of bacteria lodged in the gums.
To get the benefits of turmeric in your oral hygiene, you can use pure turmeric or mix it with coconut oil.
