Turmeric Cure for Gum Disease

Home Remedy Ingredients

  • Powdered Turmeric

Gum disease, especially bleeding along the gumline, can be addressed by applying a bit of turmeric powder to a toothbrush and brushing as usual. You can use this treatment everyday, but be aware that turmeric will stain your toothbrush yellow. Also, you should continue brushing with regular toothpaste as well.

[YEA]  11/19/2009: Sow_b from Sydney, Nsw: "Hello!

Firstly, your site is amazing!!! Thanks.

I cured my bleeding gum problem of many years by using turmeric powder as a toothpaste. I would first brush my teeth normally with toothpaste and then wash out and then my next round of brushing I use tumeric powder and apply it to the brush and start brushing away. The turmeric kills of any bacteria that lives in the gums which cause the bleeding and its great for your mouth as a whole. Whenever I used to ask my dentist how to cure my bleeding gums he would just tell me to come into his surgery for a scale and clean for the teeth which costs almost $200 australian dollars. I ignored it and it struck me that turmeric is a great anti-bacterial so that should fix my problem. I now brush this daily and my gums have never bled since, and it costs just a few dollars. Be warned, turmeric stains yellow and although this HARDLY ever affects the color of your teeth but if you want to be super sure then finish the last round of brushing using pure baking soda, this will remove any small turmeric leftover, keep your mouth in an alkeline state and super brighten your teeth!

Best of luck! Email me (sowrabh@digital-soul.com.au) any questions"

[YEA]  03/23/2008: Mary Kate from Alburq, NM: "I have suddenly developed gingivitis over the past few weeks. Bad breath when I normally don't have any, and then my gums were bleeding like crazy after flossing, also unusual. I looked up remedies on Earth Clinic and decided to try the turmeric. After 3 days, bleeding gums reduced by u, after 5 days no more bleeding or bad breath. The plaque from my teeth didn't smell quite so foul either. This is a stellar remedy!

What I did:

After first brushing and flossing, I took a toothbrush (don't use the expensive kind that you use on an electric toothbrush because it will stain yellow after the first use) and dipped it in turmeric. I brushed my teeth and gums vigorously, adding as much turmeric as possible 2-3 times to the toothbrush. After brushing with turmeric, I rinsed out my mouth well and then swished (as in oil pulled) more turmeric in water for a good 2-3 minutes. I am very curious now to see what would happen if I added turmeric to my oil pulling regime. It does not stain the teeth, but you might need to be careful with crowns or dentures. My teeth do look remarkably whiter for some bizarre reason after brushing with the turmeric. My mouth feels oh so fresh, I may start to forgo the toothpaste and just brush with tumeric. Ra ra ra TURMERIC!!!"

[YEA]  05/02/2011: Dennis From Singapore from Singapore replies: "I've been using turmeric powder for a year and my gums no longer bleed during washing. Ocassionally I get lazy and do not brush my teeth before bedtime as I get too tired. This happened for a couple of times and immediately after when I brush my teeth, there will be bleeding along the gumlines. Luckily I have turmeric with me and after 2 days, the bleeding will stop. Must remember that we need to brush and floss our teeth on a morning and night basis to ensure that plaque material is broken up on a daily basis."

[YEA]  02/09/2008: farhad from canada, ontario: "in the past few years my gums changed colour to a darker colour and my dentist told me my gums are receding my white teeth were yellow due to smoking .2 weeks ago i was told to use tumeric powder with my tooth paste when brushing since then my darker gum is changing colour to pink again in most spots and my teeth including 2front venirs are bright it strengtens gums and teeth but stains my hands only after brushing.no product did what a $2 tumeric powder has done for me.thank you."

[YEA]  12/03/2007: Alexandra from Bay Area, California: "I began getting increased trouble with acne rosacea flares (this is quite a different condition from acne vulgaris/teenagers acne). The flares were happening despite my already taking fish oil and an antibiotic ointment from the dermatologist did not help much. Then, I read in the news that acne rosacea is caused by a build up of inflammatory by products in the skin.

At once, I thought of using turmeric. I mixed turmeric spice with water and dabbed it on my flare spots. I had to scrub hard to remove it next day as it stains the skin, but 3 days later, my flare spots were gone. I take 1 teaspoon of turmeric in water each day, internally.

Then, I had to have a dental procedure where they had to do a lot of digging around in the gum to install a temporary crown. I was told my gums would feel sore and to take some ibuprofen. Instead, I swirled turmeric in my mouth after brushing my teeth, letting it reach all my gums, then swallowed it. I did this every night for the next 3 weeks. I had no gum pain at all and when I returned to have the crown installed, the dentist was amazed at how healthy my gums were. I told him I'd used turmeric.

Warning---turmeric stains white cloth and clothing, and it will probably stain artificial dental implants and dentures. But if you have all your teeth and want something extra for healthy gums, turmeric is amazing stuff. Warning..it may constipate in considerable dosages so if you have to use a lot of it, increase both fluid and fiber intake."

My teeth are cleaner, easier to floss, and whiter. I love it, but I'm concerned about loosing enamel with this process. My two front teth seem sharper and thinner on the bottom. Can oil pulling actually hurt the enamel on your teeth? Also, 10 days ago I switched to coconut oil and now I have a swelling arount my two front bottom teeth. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks, Taracat"

Water Pik, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Hydrogen Peroxide

10/21/2010: Janet from Alexandria, La, United States: "To eliminate bleeding gums and gingivitis quickly, buy a waterpik with a reservoir tank (about $60). Fill up the reservoir with warm tap, and add approximately 6 drops of GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract), along with an ounce of hydrogen peroxide. Use the waterpik according to package directions."
