Keeping Gums Healthy

Woman smiling in dental chairImagine what healthy gums look like. Now, try to imagine what “sick” gums look like.  Would you know if they were “sick”? Generally, “sick” gums bleed. They may also be swollen or pull away from the teeth, causing them to loosen and perhaps fall out.

One of the ways to keep them well is through periodic dental hygiene visits at Professionals in Dentistry. Here, the mission is to help patients have and keep the best-looking and most functional teeth. So be proactive and give the team a call to schedule a periodic dental hygiene appointment today!

Maintain Healthy Gums for Overall Health

It’s important to maintain healthy gums for many reasons other than just to keep the teeth from falling out. The American Dental Association reports, “There is evidence that bacteria in the mouth which are associated with gum disease may be linked to heart disease, artery blockages, and stroke.”

Bacteria in your mouth can cause plenty of problems, problems that can be avoided when proper oral health habits are practiced.

Proper Care for Gums

Minimize the risk of gum disease by following these steps:

  • Brush teeth correctly, at least twice a day, and after eating sugary or sticky foods, use fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss correctly at least once a day, preferably before bed, to remove the plaque that a toothbrush can’t reach.
  • Use a good antimicrobial mouth rinse that is designed to control plaque.
  • Visit Professionals in Dentistry for your regular checkups and cleanings.
