Keeping Your Gums in Good Health

Gums protect and support your teeth. Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss so it’s important to care for your gums.

Key takeaways:

– Maintain a nutritious diet to support gum health.

– Protein, calcium, vitamins C, D and iron are important for healthy gums, bone and teeth.

– Regular brushing and flossing remove food debris to keep gums healthy.

Schedule regular check-ups with your dentist who can monitor your teeth and gum health.

“Calcium also keeps your alveolar bone—the bone in your jaw that supports your teeth—strong to resist damage from gum disease.”
