We spend so much time looking at care for teeth that it’s easy to forget how important it is to care for your gums. Without those, it’d be impossible for teeth to remain strong and effective throughout our life.
This is why you need to put so much time and energy into caring for your gums. If you don’t you stand to lose quite a bit. Today, we’re going to take a look at some simple tips for maintaining gum health.
Brush along the gum line
Ask any doctor in the country and they’ll tell you that most gum issues are caused by not cleaning around the gum line. This is the area where the most plaque and other bacteria-ridden debris will build up. Focusing on brushing along where your gums and teeth meet will do wonders in removing bacteria that can cause cavities and gum disease.
If there’s one thing that Dr. Jade Cherrington wishes for his patients, it’s that they’d become better at flossing consistently. This is an easy, but incredibly effective, way to keep your gums healthy, happy, and whole. Flossing picks up the plaque and debris that lay on top of your gums. If you need tips or pointers on flossing, you can ask any member of our Rimrock Dental of Redmond team here in Redmond, Oregon.
