3 Simple Tips for Healthy Gums

If you want a beautiful smile, it needs to be healthy too. That’s why it’s so important to pay attention to your gums. Having healthy gums protects your smile and your whole body from harmful bacteria. Here are a few simple tips to keep them in good shape:

  • Floss Daily – Flossing is an essential way to keep your gums protected against harmful bacteria. Make sure you floss before you brush your teeth at least once a day.
  • Use the Right Brushing Technique – When you brush, make gentle circular motions with the brush angled towards your gums. 
  • Visit us for a Dental Checkup – Make sure you come to our office for a dental cleaning and exam twice a year for the best gum health.

If you notice problems with your gums, such as bleeding when you brush or floss, sensitive or inflamed gum tissue, or swollen gums, visit us for an appointment. Those are usually signs of an infection.
