Here are a few tips if you want to keep healthy gums.  Keeping healthy gums starts with what you put in your mouth. Too much sugar and sweets are detrimental to the health of your gums and regulating this a little will help dramatically.

After eating, it is advised that your brush your teeth. Most dentists recommend brushing 2-3 times per day with a good toothpaste and a newer toothbrush.  Brushing does not get everything out of your mouth, however. A nice swig of mouth wash can go a long way to help kill bacteria in your gums. Getting rid of plaque with your toothbrush and bacteria with mouthwash will leave your gums nice and clean.

Flossing, although not so pleasant, is also advised. Getting rid of the excess plaque between your teeth will ensure a healthy mouth. Ultimately, make sure you visit your dentist on a regular basis to get checkups and teeth cleanings to keep your gums healthy. Our goal at Kuhn Dental Associates is to help you get healthy and stay healthy.
