Here are some key tips and messages to remember during Gum Care Month:


Choose Gum-Friendly Products:

Opt for toothpaste and mouthwash that are specifically formulated to promote gum health. Look for products with fluoride and antibacterial properties.


Regular Dental Visits:

Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings. Professional cleanings remove built-up plaque and tartar that can lead to gum issues.


Watch for Warning Signs:

Be alert to signs of gum disease, such as redness, swelling, bleeding while brushing or flossing, and persistent bad breath. If you notice these signs, seek dental care promptly.


Gentle Brushing Technique:

Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a gentle technique to avoid damaging your gums. Brush in a circular motion to effectively remove plaque without causing irritation.
