Please i will like to know if olive oil has any healing remedy for the bleeding gum.
Olive oil has been shown to decrease tooth wear, but only in small studies where it was used to minimize the damage caused by nighttime grinding (bruxism). It acted as a lubricant in combination with an acrylic tooth guard.
Some small studies have shown rinsing the mouth with an emulsion of olive oil and water can decrease plaque. Decreased plaque may help decrease gingivitis.
