How to Achieve Your Best Gum Health

Gum disease is fairly common thing that happens to over 47 percent of U.S. adults.

Symptoms of gum disease can include not only damaged tissue around your teeth, but also bad breath, red, sore gums, bleeding gums and more. At its worst, it can cause tooth loss and also bone loss, along with a host of other diseases that affect the body, like diabetes and heart disease.

Fortunately, there are simple steps that can be taken to keep your gums in optimal health.

Read on to learn more.

Healthy gums – essential to your wellness

Gum disease (also known as periodontitis) can be caused by a variety of factors. These include poor oral health, of course. However, regular oral health care like brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily and seeing the dentist twice annually go a long way in optimizing gum health. And – these steps should be easy!

Additionally, smoking, age and even your genes can contribute to the onset of gum disease. When bacteria build up in the gums between the teeth, it can cause tartar and plaque to form.

If you smoke or use tobacco products – it’s a good idea to quit. And you may also consider using a fluoride-infused mouthwash and eating well-balanced diet, which can also restore health to your gums.

And if you are experiencing intense gum issues, contact us to learn more about treatment options like gum grafting or the pinhole gum technique.
