    By Health Blog on May 30, 2011 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments

    The symptoms of gingivitis

    While proper oral hygiene is the most common preventative cure for gingivitis, there are two different types of the periodontal disease; dental plaque induced gingivitis and the non plaque induced gingival lesions. The most common type of gingivitis is plaque induced which is usually prevented with improved dental hygiene.

    If gingivitis symptoms occur you should first see your dentist or dental hygienist, but if the symptoms are very mild or you simply wish to avoid plaque induced gingivitis, there are a few things you can do.

    • Brush your teeth daily, morning and night
    • Floss your teeth daily
    • Regularly use an anti gingivitis mouthwash recommended by your dentist
    • It is also recommended to have your teeth cleaned regularly by your dentist to remove the plaque build up which brushing misses.

    Good oral hygiene promotes all over general health and eliminates any health problems caused by poor oral hygiene.

    There are several things you can do today to see great looking teeth. Here are some things to take into consideration.

    Get to your dentist:

    What you really need is to get to see your dentist. They will ensure your teeth are healthy and you can get a cleaning. This will spruce up your smile considerably. It can also cut down on your bad breath, which is actually a direct indication of poor teeth health.

    Consider whitening products carefully:

    The whitening products that came out a few years back have been improved. They are less risky to your teeth and many of them are more effective. If you choose to purchase over the counter products, use them only as directed as over use can weaken your teeth’s protective shell. On the other hand, some of the best teeth whitening is actually done right at your dentist’s office. This is perhaps one of the best places to have the procedure done.

    Brush and floss after meals:

    This seems like something you have heard before, but the fact is, just one small piece of food stuck in your teeth will make people really react poorly to you. It spoils your look! Instead, simply brush more often.

    Consider veneers or other cosmetic procedures to help cover over your teeth or improve your smile if you have chipped, misshapen or missing teeth. The procedures can do a great deal to improve the overall look.

    Tackle gum problems:

    Gums are an important part of a healthy smile. Be sure that your gums are healthy by being sure that you visit your dentist.

    Your teeth really do define our overall teeth quality. Take into consideration your teeth health but also take steps to improve your smile. The good news is that if you have a great looking smile, you are more likely to smile more often.
