What Can You Do to Ensure Healthy Gums Aside from Flossing?
Posted on 11/25/2019 by Rodney Rastegar
The health of your gums is a good indicator of the overall health of your mouth. Gum disease can lead to devastating effects such as tooth loss, pain while chewing, and bleeding gums along with a whole host of other problems. Good oral hygiene could save you a lot of time and money. Most people ignore their gums when it comes to oral hygiene thinking that flossing is going to be all that's needed. The truth is there are many things that you can do to ensure healthy gums aside from flossing alone. Great Oral HygieneFirst and foremost, choosing the right toothpaste can be the difference between good and bad oral hygiene. A toothpaste with fluoride that is recommended by the ADA is a good place to start. Look for the stamp of approval on the box and you know you are on the right path. Brushing properly is also important as brushing too hard can be damaging to the gums and teeth. Be gentle but also be thorough and using a soft bristle brush can help with that. Most people rinse their mouth out after brushing, but this can wash away the fluoride and leave you not getting the full benefits of it. It is best not to rinse, eat, or drink for at least 30 minutes after brushing. However, it is beneficial to rinse your mouth after eating with a mouthwash as this will remove bacteria and any food buildup. Also, if you are a smoker, it is recommended to stop smoking immediately. The CDC says smoking makes a person far more likely to get gum disease.
