Home Remedies For Bleeding Gums (pyorrhea)

Home Remedies for Bleeding Gums

Pyorrhea is a condition associated with bleeding from gums. Pyorrhea is attributed to an attack of a bacillus on the teeth and gums. The bacillus survives and breeds on the depositing of food particles that get stored within the gaps of teeth. This is caused due to lack of exercise of the gums. Maintaining good oral hygiene, flossing, scaling, and proper brushing of teeth can prevent pyorrhea. 

Causes of Pyorrhea or Bleeding Gums
