My dentist advises rinsing with equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water, twice daily. It has been a life saver for me.....

Along with the peroxide rinse, take lots of vitamin C (500 mg a day). Get the chewable kind and suck on them so the C goes right to the gums before you swallow them. I usually get 100 mg tabs and take them several times a day.

I always brush my teeth with chloraseptic, instead of toothpaste when my gums are sore which happens once each month!

Also, peroxide is great but i can't stand the taste. There is a product called gly oxide, which is in a small bottle with a long tube at the top. There is nothing better for disinfecting the mouth if you can't stand the peroxide. Remember don't swallow!

Use a soft toothbrush and brush your gums gently from top to bottom as well as your teeth (bottom to top for the lower jaw). Don't press too hard - you need to brush gums as well as teeth. In a very short time they should feel better and stop hurting. If they don't then visit the dentist to check for gingivitis which can be dangerous if left untreated (teeth eventually fall out). Gill

You could have gingivitis. Check with a dentist.

Why would you ask a 'frugal' site about sore gums? This could be anything from tooth decay to leukaemia. See a doctor/dentist!

I have always found rinsing with warm salt water several times a day is helpful.

Your teeth could fall out if don't brush. Flossing is good for the spaces between your teeth. Mouthwash help keep the morning breath under control. See your dentist twice a year.

You may be allergic to your toothpaste. My gums become sore if I use toothpaste with baking powder. A dab of Oil of oregano or sage oil might help the soreness.
