How to Keep Your Gums Healthy

Gum tissue is highly intricate and susceptible to various types of damage and disease. Taking care of your gums involves more than just brushing and flossing every day. However, those are important activities you should make sure you do routinely.

Quit Smoking

Tobacco has the potential to seriously damage gum tissue. If you currently smoke, you should start taking steps to quit. Quitting smoking will do a lot more good for your body than only giving you healthy gums.

Be Aware of Symptoms

Even if your gums start developing gingivitis, you should still be proactive. Addressing the issue early on will allow you to circumvent much more serious issues down the road. Some of the early warning signs include:
  • Loose teeth
  • Overly sensitive teeth
  • Swollen or red gum tissue
  • Halitosis

Store Toothbrush Properly

You want to ensure your toothbrush remains as germ-free as can be. This means leaving it out in the open as opposed to keeping it in a stored container. Closing your toothbrush off from the environment will only encourage the growth of potentially harmful microorganisms.
If your gums are healthy, then you can be confident your teeth will be healthy as well. Another way to protect your gums is to see a dentist regularly, call New England Dental Health Services PC in Orange at 203-799-3311.
