Gum disease can be a serious problem that affects nearly three quarters of adults in the UK at one time or another. Many people mistakenly believe that gum disease is not that serious and will probably clear up on its own, but this could be making a big mistake. Recent studies have conclusively proved the link between gum disease and heart disease. Infections in the gum can easily enter the bloodstream through the mouth and cause a chain reaction that leads to a narrowing of the arteries around the heart. This could be very dangerous and even fatal in some circumstances.

There are many ways to treat gum disease that involve surgical treatment and conventional medicine but there is also a large movement to treat it using more traditional methods. In many areas of medicine and science as a whole, the reinterpretation of traditional medicine is being proved time and again with scientific evidence. It is for this reason that many London W1 dentists are now recommending things such as Echinacea as a treatment. Dropping a small bit on some gauze and keeping it next to the gum overnight will help to ease the inflammation and allow the body to fight the infection.

Aloe Vera and clove have also both been found to have anti-inflammatory qualities that can aid in the successful treatment of gum disease. It is very important that gum disease is treated early s it can become the more serious form of the disease, periodontitis, which will involve far more serious treatment. If you think you may be suffering from gum disease, then make an appointment with a dentist as soon as possible to receive treatment.
