Gum Care

If you’ve neglected your teeth and they are tender or bleed when you brush, see your dentist for care and recommendations. But don’t stop brushing. Take it easy, and with proper care, over time, your gum condition will improve.

Oral hygiene includes proper care of gums as much as tooth brushing.

Flossing is equally important to brushing since the surfaces in between teeth are not effectively reached by brushing.

Powered toothbrushes and Water-Pics, gum stimulators such as Stim-u-dent, and mouthwashes (preferably without alcohol) can help.

There is no substitute for a periodic professional cleaning, twice a year at a minimum.
