For many people, taking good care of their teeth is a part of their everyday health habits. Most know that brushing twice a day goes a long way to fend off cavities, keep breath fresh and keep teeth white.
However, some people don’t often think of their gums quite as often. But truth be told, your gums play a big role in your oral health.
Keep on reading to learn more about this important topic.
Gum health – a crucial piece of the oral health puzzle
First and foremost, flossing daily is non-negotiable. Flossing removes plaque and debris from food that can get lodged between the tooth where a toothbrush can’t reach. Once a day – whether morning or night – should be a crucial part of your oral wellness routine.
And be sure to schedule and keep your dental checkup appointment. Your professional cleaning and exam go a long way to ensure your mouth is in its best condition. A thorough examination of your teeth and gums can determine what you may need to add to your dental routine – up to additional professional treatments. Plus, Dr. Milan and his staff work hard to make sure any build up is removed from the teeth.
Next, if you smoke, we encourage you to stop. Smoking is not only dangerous to your overall health, but it also puts your gums at risk of gum infections and gum disease.
And finally, if you sense something is wrong with your gums, if they are red or sore or bleeding, contact us for an appointment. Prevention is the best solution.
