Herbal & antibiotic rinse for gum inflammation & sensitive teeth

I have been plagued for a long time and lastly because of positive gum inflammation very sensitive teeth. Actually, my teeth were especially sensitive to cold. After a necessary paradontosis treatment, which I didn’t think was so bad, my teeth were very sensitive to cold. Before the second periodontosis treatment (lower jaw) I told my dentist about it. He gave me the tip to try special toothpaste. He gave me two samples (mini-tubes) of the two toothpastes. Unfortunately, the toothpaste didn’t really help, so I became active myself and was looking for the ultimate rinse. Anyone who knows my blog articles or reads my blog regularly will now think:”This is nothing new”.

“To treat sensitive teeth, you need to know the causes.” I went via Internet research to find the cause.


Causes for sensitive teeth

Comparison of closely fitting healthy gums and inflamed gums leading to exposed tooth necks.
Comparison of closely fitting healthy gums and inflamed gums leading to exposed tooth necks.

There is actually only one cause: free-fitting dental necks.

If the gum tissue recedes, the tooth necks become free. These are not protected by a thick enamel layer from environmental influences. Cold, heat, trickery and acid have direct contact to Dentin and thus via the so-called tubules to Nerves.

Where do exposed tooth necks come from? Why does the gums recede?

The gums recede due to dental inflammation, dental plaque and dental calculus. The plaque or plaque is an biofilm of bacteria and fine food remains. This plaque can be removed with brushing. However, once the plaque has solidified due to minerals in the alkaline saliva, we speak of toothbrick. Only the dentist can remove tartar. And tartar can attack the gums, so that the pathogenic germs can develop their effect on and in the gums. The gums get infected.

Causes of gingivitis

Generally speaking, oral hygiene is mentioned here, but here is an overview of all the causes:

  • causes that interfere with specific immune response in the mouth:
    • bad oral hygiene
    • bad nutrition
    • smoking
    • Dry oral mucous membrane by Mouth respiration e. g. with blocked nose
    • Dry oral mucous membrane through low salivation
  • causes that are physicallyactive on the gums:
    • Too hard toothbrush
    • Too much pressure while brushing your teeth
    • Too many fine particles in the toothpaste that lead to too much abrasion when brushing teeth. (Normally, this is desirable as a cleansing effect.)
  • causes that weaken the immune system as a whole
    • smoking
    • Stress
    • pregnancy
    • unfavourable diet
    • medicines such as immune suppressive drugs
    • AIDS
    • Chronic Diseases (e. g. Diabetes mellitus)

Alternative cause

And now I’m back with what I think plausible theory, which I can’t prove so easily. However, I am sure that Research already knows the actual cause, because otherwise probiotics for sucking/chewing would not be sold for the oral flora in the meantime. Accordingly, the actual cause of gingivitis: Antibiotics

That’s how I come to my theory:

In the so-called Western civilization, our hygiene standards are very high and thus the possibilities for oral hygiene are very diverse. There are lots of different kinds toothpaste and mouthwashes, dental floss / dental sticks and interdental brushes.

How can it be that despite all these possibilities pathogenic germs in our oral flora become so widespread that we get gum inflammation?

In “less civilized countries” the problem is not so widespread, and in our country it was not so extreme two decades ago. It’s been increasing lately. In the West, we in the West also catch all population groups, not only the Hartz IV recipient, who is chronically too lazy to do anything, but also the manager, who cares for his teeth meticulously according to the instructions of his privately paid doctor. (That’s not my opinion, I’m just trying to clarify that there must be other reasons. So, no more politics at this point, I promise!)

And the crazy thing is that there are some if not many contemporaries who don’t take oral hygiene so seriously, but they never have gum problems anyway. How did that happen?

Plaque is not the same as plaque. The bacterial composition is important, similar to the intestinal flora.

I’m saying it’s the same as in the intestine. The composition of our intestinal flora changes massively to negative if some pathogenic germs get an advantage. And that’s what taking an antibiotic does.

  • Lactobacillus bacteria count among our oral flora. Although our saliva is alkaline and they like it rather sour, they spread out here because they are abundantly supplied with food. These normally drive away the pathogenic germs.
  • antibiotics especially attack the more or less mentioned sensitive lactic acid bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus.

A visible and unambiguous result of antibiotic treatment can be mouthoor, i. e. fungiation of the oral mucosa, tongue and gums, recognizable by white plaque. But whoever thinks that a shift of the oral flora is always so obvious, will probably only see the whole world in black or white. There are many shades of grey in between.

What helps?

Against the causes in the mouth itself:

Oral flora restoration

According to the designation Intestinal remediation for the treatment of the intestine, I thought I would call this section Mundflora remediation. What else do you call it? In a mouth restoration, all teeth would have to be removed first. We want to prevent that.; -)

As with the intestine, there are two essential steps:

  • Cleaning
  • Structure

First step: oral flora cleaning or killing of pathogenic germs

As you may have already noticed in my article “Intestinal Cleansing Instructions“, I am convinced of antibiotic effect of oregano oil. That’s why I decided to use oregano oil for the purification of the oral flora. If you would like to read more about oregano oil and especially studies on the effects of oregano oil, I recommend my article “Effect of oregano oil“.

Mouth rinse with oregano oil

1/2 weeks in the morning and evening after brushing your teeth.

  • I take so much warm water in my mouth that I can rinse the mouth without drooling. (Optionally I take a pinch Emperor Natron in the mouth, saliva is alkaline, so you work with the body and buffer acids.)
  • I drip a drop of oregano oil in my mouth. It’s really just a drop, the stuff burns extremely.
  • I rinse my mouth with the oregano oil-water mixture for as long as possible. At some point it burns unpleasantly, but I can now flush for about 1 minute and longer. But you shouldn’t overdo it.
  • Spit out and rinse your mouth thoroughly with water. Even flushing burns now, because oregano oil is really very hot. You don’t lose the taste for 1-2 hours now. But it doesn’t taste that unpleasant, and it certainly doesn’t taste like pizza. :-)

Second step: Building up oral flora

By mouthwashings with oregano oil, the germs causing gum inflammation should now be extremely decimated, while the good bacteria should have survived as far as possible (Effect of oregano oil). Now we want to make sure that these bacteria cannot spread again.

For some time now Dentistry in Research seems to be increasingly interested in the influence of bacteria of oral flora on diseases of teeth and gums. A lactic acid bacterium stands out: Lactobacillus reuteri.

Lactobacillus reuteri displaces Streptococcus mutans. Streptococcus mutans is said to be responsible for creation of caries. In addition, Lactobacillus reuteri was also effective in reducing gingivitis and plaque in patients with moderate to severe gingivitis. (study)

So the next step is the regular sucking of Lactobacillus reuteri lozenges (

). This time, instead of “sweet” lollipops, it is expressly desirable to spread everything well in the mouth. The intestinal flora is happy about what you swallow.

Daily cleaning

Daily cleaning tools

  1. An electric toothbrush.
  2. An soft toothbrush or toothbrush attachments.
  3. Floss or dental floss sticks
  4. Tongue scraper
    Scrub off the tongue after brushing your teeth with the foam of toothpaste that has not yet been spat out. Be careful with this, because the further you go towards the neck, the more likely you will notice nausea.

Special toothpaste

such as..:

Household remedies

  • Plaster your teeth with “Kaiser Natron” and/or oregano oil.
    Take your toothbrush, drip a drop of oregano oil on it and now, as usual, put your toothpaste on the bristles. Take as much natron between your thumb and forefiner as possible and put it in your mouth. Now brush your teeth as usual.
  • Carnations or carnations Oil
    On the side where it hurts, chew on carnation leaves or lubricate with carnation oil. Carnations have an anaesthetic effect.
  • oil drawing with coconut oil
    Take coconut oil in your mouth and drag it through your mouth and especially through the interdental spaces for several minutes. Then spit out!
  • Rough onions
    Cut a raw onion in the same way that you can place an “onion arch” on your gums like a braces, just for a few minutes. Onions have a very antibacterial effect due to the flavonoid Quercetin.


  • Acidic food
    • teeth brushing after eating or drinking acidic foods. (After eating, at least 30 minutes should elapse before brushing your teeth.)
  • Chemical whitening / bleaching products (tooth whitening)
  • Chewing tobacco and cigarettes

Boosting the immune system

Corresponding to the aforementioned causes of a bad immune system:

  • Cancel Smoking
  • Less Stress
  • Healthy Diet
  • sport
  • Possible to abstain from medication (e. g: Instead of headache tablets, it helps with coffee junkies to abstain from coffee and 2-3 litres of water per day. Important medications prescribed by a doctor should always be taken according to the doctor’s instructions and/or the package insert.

Otherwise, I would like to point out that I have cured my chronic sinusitis by Self-treatment. So it is quite possible to strengthen his immune system, through:
