Marshmallow root is not likely something you think of when it comes to helping treat gum disease. However, it can be one of the more effective things that you can do when it comes to helping your gums feel better and get healthier.
Plus, it is not typically a problem to add in a bit of a marshmallow root rinse into your treatment plan on top of what you would get from our office. Here is why people are starting to add marshmallow root to their gum disease treatment regimen.
Using Marshmallow Root To Help Treat Your Gum Disease
One of the strongest properties found in marshmallow root is the anti-inflammatory properties it has. This makes it ideal to be used as a rinse in your mouth to help bring the inflammation of gum disease down a bit. This can help hasten your ability to heal, plus it can also help you experience less pain during the process.
Another benefit of using it is that it helps relieve pain associated with bruises or bleeding, such as when your gums begin to bleed. By creating a solution that is just boiled water and marshmallow root juice, you can create something akin to a mouthwash that allows you to rinse your mouth with it. This should be done following brushing and flossing, so that your mouth can get the full benefits of it.
