Why gums matter
Good oral health is about more than your teeth
1 gum disease is an infection that could increase your risk of heart disease. Plaque bacteria can cause gum disease which, if left unchecked, could increase the levels of inflammation in other areas of your body, such as the heart. 2 early diagnosis is essential to avoid long-term damage. Periodontitis is a serious condition which can damage the soft tissue and bone supporting the teeth, causing them to fall out. Talk to your dentist if your gums are sore, or bleed when you brush. 3 Keep bacteria at bay with careful oral hygiene. Make sure you brush your teeth gently twice a day, and use TePe Interdental Brushes to remove plaque and food trapped between the teeth. This will prevent the build-up of bacteria, and keep gums healthy.
