Gum Health and Gentle Gum Care

Maintaining healthy gums is important for retaining healthy teeth for life. The condition of your gums impacts on the health of your body and gum disease is linked to numerous conditions such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, risk of stroke, diabetes, fertility issues for women and even premature births. Gum care is often more than simply brushing and flossing twice a day and having regular visits to your dentist. Here at Evolve Dental Healing we understand that it is not only how often you brush your teeth or how long for but the way in which you brush that can make big differences to the condition of your gums. We also recognise that factors such as stress, diet, lifestyle, quality of sleep, chronic illness, blood conditions such as anaemia and vitamin deficiencies, medications and so forth can also influence the health of the gums. Gum disease can be controlled or slowed down by regular professional dental cleaning and scaling which remove the build-up of plaque and tartar (called calculus within the profession). This then needs to be maintained with good oral hygiene; brushing and flossing and the use of a non-alcohol based mouthwash; by improving the diet and lifestyle and perhaps the implementation of supplements or anti-inflammatory agents when appropriate.
