Take Care of Your Gums

The gums perform an important function as they provide firm roots for the teeth as well as protecting them from harmful bacteria. Like all body parts, the gums are susceptible to problems and weakened gums can lead to sensitivity and soreness.

However, keeping gums in top condition can be achieved by following some simple do’s and don’ts:

– Do NOT use a hard-bristled brush

– Do NOT saw into gums when flossing

– DO have regular check-ups at the dentist

There are various dental and medical reasons why gums may become “red, tender or inflamed” but taking good care while brushing and flossing will keep them in the best condition possible to fight off infections and disease. Read more at
