          1. Mix pepper and turmeric in a bowl and gently massage into your gum for 1 to 2 minutes to make them stronger. Rinse your mouth with cool clean water. After the treatment avoid drinking or eating anything for 30 minutes. This remedy can be used daily as long as it doesn’t irritate your gums.
          2. A mixture of 1/8 tsp of salt with 2 drops of mustard oil can be massaged into your gum for 1 minute. Rinse your mouth with cool water. This can help strengthen your gums.
          3. Amla (Indian gooseberry) can help strengthen loose teeth and gums. Make a mixture of amla extract and clean water in a cup, stir it for sometime and rinse your mouth once a day with this mixture. Avoid eating or drinking for an hour after the rinse.
          4. Include foods that are a rich source of Vitamin C such as oranges, guavas, kiwi and strawberries, and calcium foods such as yogurt, cheese, cereals and milk in your diet for healthy gums and to strengthen your teeth.

  27. Dear Dr Hebbar,

    what would you advise in case of a tooth with a failed old root canal treatment, which now has two granulomas (periapical abcesses) in the root (female, 36, tooth No.6, top)? The next tooth (5th) has now also got an inflammation in the root, the root is almost inside the sinus.

    Can the granulomas be healed with aurvedic methods and extraction avoided? Or if not, how to best prepare for the extraction?

    Many, many thanks!
