There are many ways to help improve your oral health and help eliminate bleeding gums. Since bleeding gums are mainly due to inadequate plaque removal from the teeth at or around the gum line, starting an effective oral hygiene regimen is a great way to help treat and prevent gum bleeding. Here are some oral hygiene tips that will help you keep your entire mouth healthier and help prevent or reduce gum bleeding:
Brush Often: Brushing with a soft-bristle toothbrush in a circular motion will help stimulate your gums, help prevent bleeding gums and strengthen the tissue that protects your teeth.
Brush with Anti-Gingivitis Toothpaste: If you struggle with bleeding gums, you may want to consider a toothpaste that can neutralize the plaque found around the gum line. Also there are toothpastes which helps repair weakened tooth enamel. For sensitivity, try a more sensitive toothpaste, that is clinically proven to target the root cause of the issue for fast relief. These types of toothpastes are formulated to help reverse early signs of gum disease.
Floss Daily: Flossing is one of the most important ways to help prevent bleeding gums and maintain good oral health. It removes plaque and food particles that may be under the gum line and lead to bleeding gums.
Combine for Best Results: For best results, use multiple products together to keep your mouth, gums and teeth healthy.
Avoid Tobacco: Tobacco use can damage your gums, and can also make you far more likely to develop gum disease.
See Johnson Family Dentistry Regularly: Harmful plaque bacteria can even lead to issues beyond gingivitis like weakened tooth enamel. The cleaning performed twice a year at your dentist's office will remove plaque and tartar that can’t be removed at home. This will help prevent bleeding gums and keep your mouth healthy. You should visit your dentist for a professional cleaning and dental exam at least twice in a year. This can help prevent early gum disease from progressing into more serious gum disease.
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: The American Dental Association recommends eating a balanced diet and avoiding between-meal snacking. Also, reducing stress from your life can help prevent gum disease.
