Tips for Healthy Gums

Here are some tips for maintaining good gum health.

And our gums? Should we take care of them just like our teeth?

What to do : 

  • Gently brush your gums during each brushing using a soft-bristled toothbrush (always in a vertical motion, from the gumline towards the tooth).
  • Thoroughly clean your molars and premolars (as they are located at the back of the mouth, they are often neglected and more prone to plaque buildup).
  • Take a look at your gums once a week to stay aware of any changes in color or texture.
  • Use dental floss daily to remove food particles stuck between your teeth.

It's important to note that many patients neglect flossing due to bleeding and pain that may occur. However, stopping flossing is not the solution, as the situation may worsen instead of improving. The bleeding is actually caused by the bacteria present in the plaque, which is why it's important to persist with your good habits and consult a dental professional if the pain or bleeding persists after two weeks.

Moreover, it's imperative to regularly visit your dentist for cleanings and periodic examinations to ensure the health of your teeth and gums. Gum disease is a condition that can attack the supporting bone of the tooth if left untreated. To avoid complications and ultimately tooth extraction, it's always better to take a preventive approach and seek treatment before the condition becomes severe.
