This oral spray quickly leaves the mouth with a cooling sensation that actually has a slight herbal, but refreshing taste.

2. Tea Tree Oil Not Only Treats Teeth
Native to Australia, the leaves of the Melaleuca tree is where tea tree oil is extracted. Tea tree oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties that can not only help prevent tooth decay, but it can also soothe irritated gums.
If you have tea tree oil at home, you can apply a drop or two and gently massage the irritated gum area for instant relief. But be warned, tea tree oil may taste incredibly strong and medicinal to some people, so keep this in mind when using this essential oil on your gums.
3. See the Difference With Vitamin C in Dr. Brite’s Mouthwashes
Your body needs essential nutrients and vitamins to help heal itself and vitamin C is no exception. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that actually helps the body grow, repair, and heal itself.
You can harness the power of vitamin C with Dr. Brite’s Cleansing Mouthwash or our Kid’s Mouthwash without the harsh sting of alcohol. In fact, we actually include organic aloe vera juice and organic coconut oil in our mouthwashes to help soothe, nourish, and provide an extra layer of protection against gum inflammation.
4. Swish Around Salt Water
Remember when you had a baby tooth pulled and your parents told you to gargle salt water afterwards? This same trick can help gum pain!
Simpy add ½ teaspoon of salt to a glass of lukewarm water and use it to thoroughly rinse your mouth twice daily until the pain or swelling subsides. Salt naturally promotes healing and it can slow down the growth of bacteria. Be sure to not swallow the saltwater because it’s probably not the best taste in the world.
5. Grab That Bag of Peas. Cold Compresses Can Help
There is some truth that you can take away from all of those TV shows and movies where someone gets a black eye. Using a cold compress, whether it be a bag of ice or maybe a bag of frozen food can temporarily help with gum pain.
Use a thin towel and wrap an ice pack or a frozen bag of peas and apply until the area feels numb. The cold can help reduce swelling and pain by constricting the blood vessels in your gums.
