A friend of mine recently woke up one day with a swollen gum and he was not able to go to work that day. His own case was so serious that even his face was swollen on the exterior. He said that he's been to 2 dentists already and one of them advised that he removed a tooth while another just gave him a liquid to wash his mouth with but the problem persisted. Since I've had the same problem before and was able to overcome it, I simply advised him to buy a power mouthwash like Listerine and use it to kill the bacteria on his gums since it looked like a gum problem. I also advised him to also take some paracetamol to ease the pain he was feeling.

Well, he took to my advise and after 24 hrs, the swelling had started going down and he told me it was working. What caused his gums to be swollen in the first place? Well, it's probably as a result of not cleaning one's mouth properly and this can lead to an infection which could even cause tooth decay. If the tooth had become totally bad or decayed, the only remedy would have been a removal at the dentist and having a hole in your set of teeth can make you look less pretty.

Gum problems or painful gums are not normal and they are usually a sign of infection in your mouth. Ordinarily, a person who brushes his teeth on a daily basis is less likely to have gum or tooth problems and it's normally advisable that you stick to it else you may end up having bigger problems that would cost you more pain and sacrifice. Using a toothpaste and brush early in the morning and even before you sleep at night would help keep your teeth really healthy but neglecting to clean them ultimately leads to it being corrupted and may lead to its elimination.

Using toothpaste and brush is good and even some Nigerians use herbal chewing sticks but a more powerful way to cleanse your mouth of infections is by using a mouthwash. A mouthwash is a more powerful chemical designed for cleaning the teeth and eliminating bacteria and other mouth infections. It only requires that you take a sip of the chemical in your mouth, allow it to get in contact with your gums and teeth for a while before spitting them out - Don't swallow it!

There are different types and brands of mouthwash products in the Nigerian market and some are more powerful or effective than others. You are free to choose whichever one you want and that best works for you.

You don't have to use a mouthwash all the time if you frequently brush your teeth with toothpaste and brush but you could use it periodically like on a weekly or monthly basis - I recommend a weekly basis.

Your toothbrush and toothpaste may be able to do some work but a mouthwash will do even more and be able to reach places where your toothbrush may not easily reach, helping to fight off infections in your mouth more effectively.
