The Correct Way Recommended to Take Care of Your Gums

The Correct Way Recommended to Take Care of Your Gums

When it comes to your mouth’s health, it’s not all about how straight your teeth are or how bright your smile is. You can’t forget about your gums! Even if you’re cavity-free and have the pearliest chompers in town, that doesn’t mean you’re immune to gum disease. Since it’s usually painless, most people have no idea that anything is wrong with their gums.

Gum disease starts when plaque builds up under and along the gum line. Plaque is a sticky film-like substance that’s filled with bacteria. It can cause infections that hurt the gum and bone, leading to gum disease and tooth decay.

“ Healthy habits, including brushing and flossing, can prevent tooth decay (cavities) and gum disease. Tooth decay and gum disease can lead to pain and tooth loss.”

You can also develop periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease. Periodontitis impacts the bones that hold your teeth in place. Left untreated, it can ruin the gums, bones, and tissues connected to your teeth.

Meeting the new Dentist with my latest appointment and she is super nice and friendly and a lot like the other dentist. Wonderful choice to the existing staff. My experience at Reflections Dental is always a good one. The staff is friendly and helpful and treats the customers well. My tech explains everything she is going to do before she does it and I really appreciate that. They take good care of my teeth! Thank you ladies…
