Your gums play a big part in your oral health, and we at
Walden Dentistry want to make sure you are doing everything possible to prevent
. September is the month
that is nationally recognized for gum care and prevention. As a general dentist in Chandler, AZ
William Walden understands that early detection of issues is one of the most
important steps to maintaining healthy gums.
Early Signs of
The health of your gums is directly related to your general
health, so it is important to detect issues early on. In order to improve the
care of your gums, visit Dr. Walden if you notice any of the following signs:
Gums that are swollen or red
Persistent bad breath
Gums that bleed often during flossing or
Any change in the biting position of your teeth
Regular Home Dental
One of the best and easiest ways to take care of your gums
and prevent gingivitis or more serious gum issues is to practice good home
care. Regular flossing is the most significant thing that you can do to make
sure your gums stay healthy. Food particles regularly get stuck in between your
teeth and can embed in your gums, and flossing helps to get rid of these
unwanted particles. There are many different types and flavors of floss, and we
can help you determine which the best type is for you.
Brushing your teeth on a regular basis is a no-brainer, but
many people do not realize that brushing your gums is just as important. This
can be done by using a gentle circular motion over your gums. This helps ensure
that any unseen debris is removed.
