Flossing – An Inexpensive Way to Healthy Gums!

>> Jul 23, 2018


Having a great smile and teeth does not mean you have fantastic oral health. What about your gums? Do you care about them? Even if you have no tooth cavities, this does not mean you are immune to gum issues. The reality is even if you have problems with your gums, you will not even know. The symptoms are generally painless, and if you are not careful, you will lose all those sparkling white teeth!

Understanding gum disease with expert dentists
The above is enough to scare you and wake up to the fact that gums are indispensable to good oral health and it starts with you. The disease of the gums generally begins along or under your gum line. Everyone is exposed to the plague; this is a sticky substance rich in bacteria that cause havoc in your mouth. Plague is very dangerous to the health of your gums and teeth in general. It causes infections and hurts the bone and gum. This leads to tooth decay and gum disease. If you are not careful plague also causes gingivitis – an early stage of gum disease.

Carindale dentists say you must take care of your gums regularly and one effective way to do it is by flossing at least once a day. Often plague and food particles get stuck between the teeth, and it becomes hard for you to take them out with brushing. This is where flossing helps you. If you are not careful, gingivitis takes place where your gums become tender, inflamed, red, swollen and prone to bleeding. This damage to your gums is irreversible through the bone, or the tissue of the teeth are not affected. 

Another dangerous form of gum disease is periodontitis. In fact, this disease is an advanced gum disease that negatively impacts the bones holding your teeth in place. If you do not treat this condition, it will ruin your bones, gums and all the tissues that are connected to your teeth. The most fatal and last stage of gum disease is advanced periodontitis. This destroys the bone and the fibres that support the teeth. This negatively influences your bite, and you might have to have your teeth removed.

How can you detect gum disease?
You can detect gum disease if you have bad breath or taste in the mouth. Your gums are weak when your permanent teeth separate, or you lose them. Weak gums bleed often and are red, tender or swollen. In most cases, your gums will pull away from your teeth. However, you can prevent gum disease if you floss regularly. You must clean your teeth with a good toothpaste. Wash your mouth with a good mouthwash.

Dentists say there is no specific time for dental flossing. You may do it once after lunch or dinner. It must be done at least once a day. However, if you can floss after every meal, you will be able to take care of your gums for a longer period and prevent the onset of gum problems.
