Even though it is not as visible as our teeth, we should never forget about our gum, if we intend to keep our smile for a long time.
So without further ado, let’s see VitalEurope’s tips for proper gum care.
Step one: learn the basics. The gum is a soft tissue, which covers both jawbones and the lower half of the teeth. It’s main purpose is to protect bone, and to keep the teeth in position. However, it can be damaged by internal and external phenomena too. Neglecting the gum can easily result in different diseases, which can lead to shrinking or even tooth loss. All these can and should be avoided by paying attention to proper mouth care.
Less strength, more caution
When it comes to proper tooth brushing, we should forget about strong strokes, as it could easily damage our gum. We would recommend soft brushes instead, and practicing the proper tooth cleaning technique. It is important to clean the lower part of the teeth as well, where it meets the soft tissue.
From floss to massages
Dental floss is paramount if we want to keep the space between our teeth clean. Again, going slow and careful is the name of the game. If we do it too fast, we might cut our gum which can be extremely painful and also dangerous because it might lead to infections. For this very reason, we should also forget about toothpicks. Instead of these we would recommend using gum massage tools. These were specifically designed to stimulate the blood flow in the gums, maintaining a healthy state. Important note: it also feels amazing.
Gum-serum for everyday use
We apply several kinds of skin/face care products every day. Why should our mouth be different? VitalEurope’s Luxury Gum-care Serum is an entirely natural product, designed for the sole purpose of…you guessed it, gum care. It is made of the following ingredients: aloe and chamomile extract, clove, tea tree and sage oil. It is extremely useful against inflammation or mouth infections. We recommend using it at night, after brushing your teeth. Apply 3-4 drops of the serum to your toothbrush and gently stroke the gum with it. It is a great way to add some extra protection to our mouth besides using floss and inter-dental brushes.
The ultimate nemesis: Smoking
It is unnecessary to write about all the negative effects of smoking. Besides causing all kinds of health issue, smoking is also responsible for gum recession. Quit smoking today, to save your teeth and gums.
One more important note: we can never go wrong by consuming fruits and vegetables. Just keep in mind which ones to avoid.
