Gum bleeding - or gingivitis - affects 6 out of 10 women during their pregnancy, hence the need to prevent or cure it. The solution ? Take care of your teeth, of course, but homeopathy and herbal medicine can also help you.
Bleeding gums, why?
- As the level of hormones is higher during pregnancy, the blood flows more quickly to the gums, causing swelling and inflammation called "gingivitis". But it also reveals that pathogenic bacteria are present in dental plaque, requiring a scaling at the dentist, associated with daily care.
The reflex "oral hygiene"
- Simply brushing your teeth can trigger bleeding, hence the importance of good dental hygiene that will also prevent cavities and infections. The use of a soft bristle toothbrush and sensitive toothpaste (Weleda Calendula) is strongly recommended after each meal. Brushing is always done from the gum to the tooth, inside and out, the upper and lower jaws separately, and for a minimum of 3 minutes. Note that brushing is not responsible for bleeding gums, but the plaque that needs to be removed.
- Tip: pour 1 to 2 drops of grapefruit seed extract (antibacterial and anti-inflammatory) on the wet toothbrush. Also consider mouthwashes, 2 to 3 times a day, with 5 to 10 drops of grapefruit seed extract or 20 drops of Calendula in mother tincture, diluted in a glass of water.
The homeo reflex
- Faced with chronic gingivitis: 2 granules of Luesinum, 5 CH, 3 times a day.
- If edema: add 2 granules of Apis or Phosphorus 5 CH.
- If hemorrhage: 2 granules of Kreosotum or Arnica, 5 times a day.
