Cure for mouth cysts due to tooth decay

If you want to get rid of the swelling alone, you should be aware that you would be tackling a symptom of the problem rather than the problem itself or even the root of the problem. It is far better that you try hard to get rid of the problem itself. Even if you do take measures to reduce the swelling, you will basically end up not being able to stop it from occurring again. It would be advisable to first consult a dentist and figure out why you have the cyst you have described here in the first place. It is entirely possible that the decaying tooth you have described needs to be removed or taken care of before you go any further. It is also possible that you may have developed some sort of bacterial growth which is leading to the cyst. This is a fairly common occurrence, and it should not alarm you. Sometimes, food can collect in the gaps between your teeth over a period of time. This generally leads to the growth and festering of bacteria and this can lead to swelling and sometimes can also result in bleeding to some extent as well.

You may simply need to get your teeth and gums cleaned. Sometimes the solution is as simple as that. However, if you want to try and detoxify your mouth at home, then you can also follow a simple routine on a daily basis. Take one teaspoon of sesame oil and swirl it around in your mouth for a whole 10 minutes. This will help to control the bacterial activity in your mouth. In addition to this, if your cyst is caused by bacteria, this sesame rinse will help to reduce it . You would have to do this for at least a week before you can hope to see positive as well as visible results, so you need to ready for that as well. In order to cleanse your mouth properly and well, you should also try and rinse your mouth thoroughly with hydrogen peroxide. This will help to kill bacteria as well. Use diluted hydrogen peroxide: one part peroxide and one part water. This solution needs to be used at least twice a day for positive results. In order to reduce the swelling, you should take a drop of clove oil in a small piece of cotton wool and keep it clamped between your teeth where the swelling is.
