How to Help keep your gums healthy?
Healthy gums don't bleed, so you notice blood in the sink after brushing or flossing your teeth, don't ignore it. Bleeding gums can be a sign of gum disease.
While it may be a common issue, left untreated, gum disease can lead to serious oral health complications. In addition to bleeding gums, gum disease can cause sore, red and swollen gums, receding gums, bad breath (halitosis) and, in some severe cases, tooth loss. Luckily, gum disease can be treated and reversed in its earliest stage (gingivitis) with proper tooth and gum care, and regular visits to your dentist.
To help protect your gums against disease, it's essential that you take care of them with a daily cleaning routine that effectively removes plaque bacteria - the main cause of gingivitis symptoms, like bleeding gums. if you are experiencing bleeding gums, one of the first things you should do after organising an appointment with your dentist is to make sure you are following a good oral health routine — and that includes brushing with a fluoride toothpaste twice daily. Try switching to a toothpaste specially formulated to help stop bleeding gums by enhancing plaque removal, like parodontax.
