Correct oral hygiene

To have healthy teeth and gums you have to take good care of them. This means cleaning your teeth regularly and making sure to remove dental plaque and remains of food from teeth, gums, and the space between your teeth. The best time to clean your teeth is after meals - at least three times a day. Clean your teeth for at least three minutes. And, brushing alone is seldom sufficient - remember to floss between your teeth at least once a day.

Bleeding gums

Bleeding gums are an alarm signal but not the end of the world. Proper cleaning, flossing and a good antibacterial mouthwash can help solve the problem. However if left unattended, bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease that can lead to loss of teeth. Be sure to ask your dentist for advice if you notice your gums bleeding.

Periodontitis

Periodontitis is inflammation and infection of the ligaments and bones that support the teeth and is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. If you have  periodontitis you should visit your dentist twice a year for professional cleaning and a routine check-up.

Dental care during pregnancy

The rise in hormone levels during pregnancy causes the gums to swell, bleed, and trap food causing increased irritation to your gums. It is recommended that you are particularly careful to clean your teeth thoroughly during pregnanancy. Do visit your dentist if a regular check-up is due during your pregnancy but please mention that you are pregnant since some dental procedures are best left until after your baby is born.
