While perhaps not as well publicized as tooth care, the importance of healthy gums to keeping a healthy mouth cannot be overstated. Your gums are the foundation of a healthy smile as they protect your teeth’s roots and the bones of your jaw.
Neglecting your gums can lead to some rather unpleasant health issues. Poor oral hygiene can result in halitosis, the medical term for bad breath. If bacteria builds up in your mouth, the toxins produced can cause your breath to smell.
You may also contract gum disease, such as Gingivitis, which can leave your gums swollen, red and prone to bleeding. If untreated, gum disease can lead to periodontitis, where plaque grows below the gum line and gums start to separate from the teeth. This can result in damaged gum tissue, damaged to the bones of the jaw and tooth loss. The good news is, all of these issues are preventable if you use the simple tips listed below.
